The Importance of Having an Action Plan
Are you ready for some action? If so, get used to the term ‘take action‘, because it’s what the whole business of internet marketing is all about.
You don’t want to sit on the fence and watch the web go by, it’s far more fun to be part of it, and the aim is to get a slice of it whenever we can.
But, there are a few rules or guidelines to stop you falling into the usual old traps, or nasty scams that are waiting to lighten your wallet, purse or pocket book.
Knowing Exactly What to Do
As an affiliate marketer, it’s important that you understand what to do and how to go about doing it. You need to learn how to manage your time, develop campaigns and create action plans for yourself. Why, you may ask? Because without vision, direction and discipline, you’ll be walking or surfing around, with no place to go – not good!
The first suggestion is to find the right training that is going to offer you step by step learning from a couple of real professionals, this is the crux of your success in the online marketing world.
So many prospective internet entrepreneurs start out with high objectives, or should I say one high objective, that of making money online! It’s what everyone wants, but sadly few achieve (only 3%).
The main reasons they fall short of their goals are because of the following:
- they lack direction
- they are undisciplined
- they are impatient
- they procrastinate
- they wont or don’t take action
These are the major hurdles for holding people back in their quest for the holy money tree. Take each one of these negatives in turn, and let’s turn them into positives. It really is not hard to do, but YOU HAVE TO WANT TO DO IT!
Find Your Direction
Before you start a campaign, make a list of all the things that will help you in your task. Therefore, if you’re preparing to write a blog post, do your research to gather relevant and useful information. Make sure you put your take on the subject and don’t copy the viewpoint of someone else.
Plagiarism is wrong and YOU WILL get thoroughly penalized in your rankings by Google, and lose all credibility with your readers. The days of copy and paste are long gone, thank goodness!
Create a great, unique title that will draw people to your entry in the search results. Always think about your potential customers and offer them value in your content. Outline the headings and sub-headings to give the article meaning and flow. It doesn’t take long to get used to writing good content, but take your time and get it right!
This is an area we all need to address from time to time. Perhaps we start off on the right foot and know where we’re going, but within a few Google searches our attention has been diverted to something that has caught our interest elsewhere.
This is a big problem when working from home, without there being anyone around to wield a big stick! That is, hypothetically of course. With no-one to direct us or keep us on our toes, we must do it ourselves.
By wanting to be your own boss, as you’re trying to make money on a laptop or computer, you are the one who sets the standard, so you must discipline yourself or you’ll fail miserably!
Are You Impatient?
I reckon many of us are to a certain extent. We want to ‘get rich quick‘ or ‘earn money now‘, and why not? Well, the reason why not, is because impatience causes indiscipline, which in turn causes mis-direction. These are those negatives cropping up again.
Tackle your tasks slowly, there’s no hurry. If you take your time over a project it will be worth it, rush it and you’re wasting your time.
Procrastination Doesn’t Pay
This word crops up all over the place with things connected to online marketing. We’ve all fallen foul of it. It’s easier to say to oneself, “I’ll do that in a few days time” or “it’s not important enough to do now, I get around to it one day!” Not good thinking, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Once you have the discipline, patience and direction, don’t hold back, get on with it NOW!
Action Taking is the Key to Success
By now you have realized the importance of grasping the metal, making your mind up and taking action –
so, DO IT!
I want to tell you a little story:
Five years ago I was reading through an article similar to this one that offered an opportunity to get involved in internet marketing. I didn’t know anything about the company, and was incredibly suspicious as maybe you are too.
I had previously experienced more than a few questionable sites and offers, but my mistake then was that I didn’t act immediately and waited and waited – for what? I was indecisive and failed to take action then.
Two years later, I re-visited this online business for a second time – and this time I TOOK ACTION!
It was the best thing I have ever done, and NOW I make money online on a laptop or computer from the comfort of my home every single day of the week…
…YOU CAN TOO, IF YOU WANT TO, SO…
