How To Make It Online = NOT What You Think...?

I normally sleep like a log but last night was different...

I kept waking and thinking about WHY so many affiliates FAIL to make the big money online...

And then I thought about how I did it...

What lead me to MY breakthrough...

AND I REALISED.

Probably the KEY to my internet marketing success...

(and of pretty much ALL the self made millionaires
I know)

... is ACTION.

And NOT being afraid to take a chance....

It's not JUST this though.

You MUST have a positive "I WILL SUCCEED" attitude...

FORGET "I would like"...

NO MORE "it would be nice if..."

TRAIN YOURSELF....

Tell yourself EVERY day...

I WILL SUCCEED.


I made quite a few BIG decisions before I made six and seven figures as an affiliate...

I took RISKS...

I took several LEAPS OF FAITH.

I wasn't reckless...

I always had some sort of "safety net"...

(this is also very important)

But I wasn't afraid to TAKE ACTION.

Can YOU Become A Six or Seven Figure Affiliate ...?

I am 100% convinced the answer is YES.

BUT...

You MUST have a positive mindset...

You MUST believe even if there is NO evidence...

You MUST "see" your success in front of you.

Chances are high that you are in a VERY similar situation to mine...

You're sat at your computer with a GOAL.

ONLY you really "gets" it...

NOBODY else really understands what you're doing...

You try to explain what you're doing to others and they
just smile but have NO CLUE what it really means.

You have DOUBTS....

You have FEARS...

(don't worry this is normal)

But to SUCCEED....

To REALLY make it...


Requires a few KEY ingredients....

BELIEF, POSITIVITY and an OPEN MIND.

You need to think "outside the box"...

When you buy an internet marketing course, e-book or software...

Think not JUST "can I use it the way I'm shown by the product creator...?"

But "can I use it a tiny bit DIFFERENTLY...?"

If you speak another language than English, try and use it in a non English speaking market...

If you know a lot about fly fishing or martial arts, think how can you use it to profit from these "niches"...

You may be pleasantly surprised how much success you have "tweaking" a product to suit YOUR knowledge and expertise.

If you're into computer games, this is a CRAZY big market...

If you like football, so does half the world = BIG money is being spent on it.

I made a TON of money marketing weight loss products in foreign countries...

I made mega bucks marketing ONE camera I bought myself online that I knew was a crazy bargain and would appeal to the masses...

Sometimes all you need is ONE TINY BREAKTHROUGH...

Just ONE affiliate sale....

To help you see that success IS possible...

I can't tell you HOW to do it.

Your "Breakthrough Moment" is likely to come from a random thought...

A "chance" experience...

Or maybe even from a purchase of a "niche" product...

These are the little "gems" that I believe life throws at us every now and then...

And maybe that's the most important factor... I BELIEVE.

I'm not bogged down with concerns about IF I will make it...

(I never have been, even when I'd made NO affiliate sales)

I'm ALWAYS thinking about how I WILL make it.

Sometimes you need to just believe...

Even when there is NO proof...

Treat every day, every new course you buy as an OPPORTUNITY.

A chance to move a step closer to YOUR goal.

Make sure you have some kind of "safety net"...

Something that means you don't HAVE to succeed TODAY....

If you're under pressure you are making it close to IMPOSSIBLE to have an open mind...

How are you going to have that one "genius" idea if you're stressing about other things...?

You need to have a little bit of time every day or week that's just for YOU...

You need to focus on your goal, learn a new skill, get GOOD at it...

Then try thinking a bit "differently"...

PERSISTENCE is what separates the eight figure affiliates...

From the guys on the outside looking in.

You've got to visualise success and BELIEVE in it...

And NEVER, ever give up.


To Your Success

Whoa... not even sure where this article came from.

I REALLY hope it helps YOU succeed online...

Self belief is a hard thing to achieve at times but it really is the KEY (combined with a bit of hard work and a bit of inspiration).

Best Wishes

To weed out the scams from the real deal is what is frustating

My internet failures are not related to lack of perserverance, persistence or inability to grasp successful IM concepts. They deal with lack of knowledge on how to do the website building, linking and getting a functional computer usage knowledge base so I can apply concepts and make software work. For someone new to all this, it's a significant learning curve. You guys keep selling stuff and say it's simple to construct everything but there are always many implementation questions and support doesn't always respond in a timely manner or with the right answers. There needs to be better help support for newbies like me that are not computer proficient like you!

@ klaus

i hear what you're saying but i think the word scam is over used in internet marketing.

you've got to be realistic about your expectations of products... marketers will always make their products sound as easy as possible... so you have to learn to read between the lines and not believe everything will work so easily for everyone...

i've yet to find another industry that offers so much potential for so little investment.

i'm not saying spend crazy amounts of money on guides, etc.

but be realistic that you're going to have to buy several courses before you find "the one" for you...

i think a real scam is when you can't get your money back and with clickbank this is always an option.

@ brett

until a few years ago i couldn't even copy and paste !

i taught myself a lot of skills, went on courses for website creation and bought a LOT of internet marketing guides along the way...

I truly started from ZERO... so I know what you're feeling and know that it CAN be done.

be patient with yourself and realistic in your expectations... the rest will come :)

Ok, Mike, 'I GET IT': It all starts with action, my action. Then everything else I need will flow from my action, as you say with "Belief, positivity and OPEN MIND" and perhaps add a fortuitous "Break Through Moment" when I will discern even a tiny DIFFERENCE that will create THE ADDED VALUE that will lead to success.

I'm a member of commission hijack. i received a few email alerts and signed up with twitter. i've done a few tweets several days ago, to date haven't seen my first sale.

But like you said, i must start believing in myself, work hard, keep learning and to have positive mindset.

eversince i stumbled upon the phrase "work from home" a year ago, i tried my best to accomplish something. at least tried getting some idea abt this whole internet thing.

To date IM is still unreal to me (English is not even our mother tongue) but your words of encouragement is indeed encouraging. i do appreciate your honest drive helping others esp the many struggling newbies like me. The internet cake should rightfully be shared by many not the few. As Charlotte said, everyday is the start of a new beginning.

Keep up d good work. Thanx.

I too have spent a ton of money on guides, but the Commission hijack seems to be the one that really cares about the people who bought the guides. Mind set is truly important.

Heya Mike,

First, I want to tell you that I bought your "Mass Cash Coverup" (MCC) course/software about 2 weeks ago and have since read all of the manuals, watched all of the accompanying videos, and have even tried out the software to compare it to some that I already owned. And I just have to say it... Why NO "backlinks" on your blog, man? What's up with that? LOL! ;-)

Now, to be totally honest with you, I was really deliberating over whether or not I was gonna return MCC. NOT for any "bad" reasons, though. Let me explain (it's also relevant to this post, as you will see)...

Basically, it's because I already knew all of the Internet Marketing (IM) and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) info that you outlined in the course, which was VERY GOOD in my opinion (esp. for novice & intermediate levels). And I still recommend it as a worthwhile IM training product to others on my mailing lists and blogs/websites (where appropriate).

See, I've been into SELF-TAUGHT IM, SEO, and web design as a HOBBY, on and off, for many years. That's right, I read the comments above as well and noticed some of you are new to IM and struggling with a lot of stuff right now. I want you to know that we've all been there, and I can feel your frustration - BUT DON'T QUIT & NEVER GIVE-UP! Because, as Mike said, it can be done, even starting from ZERO!

Sure, I taught myself *everything* about this awesome industry also, starting out not knowing anything at all, and learning a large part of it for FREE by using the power of the Internet and Google. And by joining the Warrior Forum, which every Internet marketer should be a member of, in my opinion. But I did it all for FUN (I didn't need the money back then, but I sure do now), so there was NO pressure to learn it, and I wasn't STRESSED OUT about it.

In fact, I've actually had several barely monetized (like maybe an AdSense banner stuck at the top) PR 4 high-traffic niche sites that I simply let die in the past... believe it or not. Shoot, they'd probably be around PR 6 or 7's by now, if I had kept them up, and would be mega-easy to monetize properly and profitably, so I'm definitely kicking myself in the a** now, though! :(

Yeah, and I just recently came back online about a month ago after a long hiatus (approximately 3.5 years). But this time I "changed my game plan" to that of SUCCESSFUL Internet BUSINESSMAN instead of BROKE online HOBBYIST. (*smiles*)

And I DECIDED to TAKE ACTION and USE my gifts, knowledge, and talents to MAKE MONEY for a change - WHICH IS OK, by the way (IDK, I just felt like I needed to say that for someone reading this). So I started all over again, literally from scratch!..

Of course, I thought any IM "shortcuts" would be nice and started looking for some new "automated" software to add to my arsenal, as I've been collecting it for a while. Yeah, I sort of cheated when I was on break and snuck back online from time to time and snagged stuff up occasionally, as I'm a lifetime member to several paid, premium MRR / PLR membership sites.

So I actually bought MCC for the "automated" software portion that was mentioned on the sales page. But as it turns out, I already have software that does what yours does, and then some. That's why I was thinking about returning it. Since it is essentially useless to me.

BUT NOT TO OTHERS, who are not as familiar with IM and SEO as I am and/or don't already have software that does what yours does. It's actually a really good product for so-called "newbies" and people with limited knowledge or experience in IM and SEO. It CAN potentially bring those users GREAT VALUE, BUT ONLY IF THEY APPLY WHAT THEY LEARN IN IT!

Thus, I'm facing a dilemma here, Mike, because, quite frankly, I really like you as a person, and as a marketer. And reading this post is making me wanna just say "screw it" and let you keep the money, as I received a lot of VALUE from it, which is very important to me.

Well, I guess the ultimate decision is up to my brother / business partner, who is the "money man" behind our little joint venture. But I will definitely put in a really good word for you, for sure. And I'll even try to get him to read this post, but no promises there. He's more into the TV than a PC, if you know what I mean... LOL!

Either way, I really like the post, myself, and can relate with you A LOT on the part about trying to explain what I'm doing online to others, even my brother / partner, and they have NO CLUE whatsoever.

So yeah, it's tough when you feel alone in that way, and the fears, the doubts, and all the other possible negative thoughts and feelings start creeping in and try to drag you DOWN! But you can NOT let that happen... INDEED, IT'S OUR *JOB* AS *SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSPERSONS* TO FIGHT THE NEGATIVES BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY! If YOU don't, then WHO will?

And you are right, Mike, it does begin with BELIEF. As Napoleon Hill so eloquently put it like 80 some odd years ago, "What the mind can CONCEIVE and BELIEVE, the mind CAN ACHIEVE! (emphasis added)

OK, I think I've said a little my more than my "two-cents worth" (he he), so I'll end here. Thanks for the great read, man! And even though I couldn't leave a "backlink" here, it was still a pleasure to comment! Have a wonderful, prosperity-filled day and God bless YOU and YOURS!

Sincerely,

Michael Brock

P.S. There's a lot more to this story, but I didn't want to take up too much space on your blog (oops...*grins*), so I purposely omitted some parts for brevity (me brief, yeah right - LOL). Edit it as you like, or don't post it, it's up to you. Anyhow, thanks for letting me share and peace out! 8)

P.P.S. By the way, Mike, I "Liked" the post on Facebook with a comment added, too!

Hey Mike,

Well, since you're moderating the comments, you can just delete this one if you want, but I just wanted to let you know that I also "retweeted" and "buzzed" this post as well.

Really great article, man! I'll chat with you later and God bless!
