A Simple Tip That Helped Me Make Money Online…

I went online for the first time in Feb 2008.

Like most people, I struggled greatly at first.

I guess I did what most newcomers do — download pretty much anything — signed up for pretty much everything.

Almost immediately I began hop skipping and stumbling from eBook to report to product to forum….

Before very long I was suffering from the dreaded information overload.

But then – even worse – the ‘paralysis of analysis’ set in…

Urghh! I was doomed before I’d even begun…

I was far too busy trying to learn everything yet I was very aware that I wasn’t actually DOING anything.

‘Uploads’ ‘downloads’ ‘websites’ ‘hosting accounts’ ‘html’ ‘lists’ ‘autoresponders’….

It didn’t end!

Another week passed; my wife went to bed alone. Again.

And then I found something that hit me like a right hook from Tyson. It was as follows:

“…those that focus on one tactic, and make that one tactic successful, before moving on to something new, usually do well with their online business…’


So — you know what — I tried it. And would you believe it — it worked.

I started applying this attitude at about the 5 month mark after starting online. A few weeks later – after deciding to learn ONE thing at a time – I had my first (of many) $250 days.

I am convinced a lot of my success is due to the fact that I stopped wasting time trying to juggle a gazillion balls — and instead — decided to work on ONE thing and SEE THIS ONE THING THROUGH TO COMPLETION.

An example.

I remember spending 7 days solid – really trying to master Keywords. Really getting down and dirty with wordtracker and the free google keyword tool – to learn what long tail keywords were and a short tail, learn, learn, learn.

After educating myself – I began using better keywords in my articles and videos.

Beforehand I had just been guessing what I thought people would search for.

But now – with my videos and articles better optimized for keywords – more people began to find them – resulting in more clickthroughs to my site – resulting in more sign ups to my list.

It actually worked!

But it did take some hard work and discipline from me first.

So — the point of this post — is for you Mr and Mrs Newcomer.

Stop trying to master everything. You won’t. It will drive you insane. Give yourself a weekly goal — to achieve just ONE thing. And work to JUST ACHIEVE THAT. Stop checking your stats, stop downloading another report.

Master ONE tactic.

Become good at ONE thing.

And when you have – and only then – move on to the next. It really does work.

Making Money Online is a skill -just like plumbing, or carpentry, or physics – and just like ANY skill – it can be learned. But just like any skill – it takes time and discipline and focus.

And an understanding partner!
