From Zero To One And One To Money Online Hero
Making money online is a journey to success for many and the journey from zero to hero is actually something worth looking at in a more detailed manner to help you in your own journey for success. Here’s what happen typically to anyone who is trying to make money online.
First, you will start from nothing. And then from nothing you will learn everything you could for some time. After the learning phase is over, it is then that people will start trying to implement what they have learnt. Unfortunately, the majority of the people who started internet marketing never got past the first stage (which is the learning part). If you can break through the learning phase and move on to the implementation phase than your chance of success is already considered higher to money online than most of the people who tried their hands on internet marketing.
It takes a lot of time to learn and most people are just hungry for how to money online information, and they gobble up as much information as they can. And then they got overwhelmed by the plethora of information that they consumed in a short amount of time. It is always easier to learn than implement and hence, before they have a chance to make anything happen with the knowledge they have, in came another ‘opportunity’ and they jumped from one course to another without ever taking any real productive actions.
Nevertheless, the few who actually made past that barrier and starts taking action will begin their journey in building their sites. The task itself is daunting, and it can take up to months before their first website is up ready to make money online. Some give up along the way, and some pushed on.
Moving on from building sites, they begin to send traffic to their site. They will send any traffic they could and most of these traffic that they send are ‘cheap’ and ‘useless’ traffic so to speak. Hence in this phase a lot more people will actually ‘call it quits’. However, those who concentrate on the right path of sending targeted traffic will then are rewarded with their ‘FIRST SALE’.
This is the moment of realization that you can actually make real money online. Using this motivation alone most will push on and try to rinse and repeat what they have been doing. The first sale is usually contributed by the ‘conversion rate’ of a website, offer, or sales letter. Such is the path of someone who moves from Zero to One.
Obviously, the next phase from be to move from One to Hero.
This path is extremely hard. You know about targeted traffic. And you know you need to convert this traffic into sales. The next thing naturally is to grow your business. Those who are not distracted by other new ‘techniques’ to earn money are able to move on. However, there are those who get stuck in this phase and jump around different ‘sexy’ techniques that are sold and spread around the net.
Hence, in order to move from being a ‘first sale’ to ‘constant sales’ is of course being able to rinse and repeat what you have been doing. However, to move from constant sales to ‘total hero’ in other words a big successful internet marketer who does not have to lift a finger and earns money every single day requires some real effort.
The first thing you can do to bring your business to a bigger success is to build your list. The bigger the better and make sure to build a good relationship with your list. Perhaps the biggest key to a very successful internet business is being able to get a lot of traffic constantly and have things automated.
One of the things that you need to be able to do on this phase is to outsource. In many cases, gurus usually outsource everything except the networking part (althought there are thouse who outsource this part as well). Most of the time, their products are outsourced unless it is a video that they have to record themselves in. Otherwise all the rest of the work is outsourced. The traffic generation, the product production, the sales letter and their graphics work, all outsourced.
At this phase, you will spend most of your time checking on the work and tweaking the sales copy. You also need to monitor your traffic and track your conversions. The rest of your time is spent on networking with other JV partners in order to build your leads and traffic source.
Last but not least, during this phase you will also need to start selling higher ticket items so that your every effort is paid back with more profits. You’ll have more budgets for your advertising work as well.
Another important thing you will have to do in this phase is to start building a reputation and brand for yourself and your company. The more popularity you gain the more people will buy your product. Hence at this stage it will be wise to have your own fan page or group or social pages to spread your brand and company.
And that is how the life cycle of a normal internet marketer and how most went from zero to hero and how some plainly fail in the very early stages of the game. Take this lesson, learn from it, reflect and start making things better for you and your business.
