Everybody wants to get online and start making money fast. There is this crazy perception that just because you announce on Facebook that you started a new business, you are automatically entitled to become an overnight success story…SIKE!
Despite what you’ve heard, what you’ve seen, or choose to believe, making money online takes work.
That means before you actually start making the life changing income you are dreaming of, you’ve got to learn how to make money online.
Don’t be fooled into believing ‘copy & paste’ methods work, or are going to allow you to build a sustainable business. Networking and connecting with new people is ONE required skill you must learn.
Another vital skill you need to achieve your online income goals, is Marketing.
Getting your business started on the internet does not have to be difficult. The reason why most people struggle with getting set up online is because they are confused by all the different information available.
Some experts say you need a blog, others say you don’t, and should have a capture page instead. Then, there are some who recommend you use both. Makes you wonder, what to do…what to do?
Of course, each one has its benefits when it comes to your online marketing strategy. It’s just knowing when to select the one that is appropriate, and most effective with helping you achieve your desired results.

When I started my consulting business back in 2009, my first priority was to reach as many people in my target audience as possible. I had a clear marketing plan laid out with a goal to create awareness and gain exposure in the shortest time possible.
I created a blog because I knew I needed a marketing platform to easily display my expertise and the products and services I offered. I was fairly new online so I needed to establish my brand, online presence and blog so I could attract quality leads.
I learned the hard way…
Do you know the people who you are attracting into your business?
Even more so, do you know WHY you are attracting those individuals?
Let’s have a real talk for a moment, shall we?
If you are in business – whether in network marketing, internet marketing, coaching, consulting, freelancing, whatever it is you do…you have to somehow get people to know who you are and see what you do.
Most people believe, getting their ‘face’ in front of everybody is the way to go!
I beg to differ…and here is why…
If you are fairly new to online marketing, and not seeing the kind of results you hoped for in your business, you may feel like you are doing something wrong and wasting your time.
