Almost everyone has watched that time travel movie trilogy where a villain, now elderly, travels back in time to the days he was in high school. He gives a sports trivia book to his younger self. The younger version of him then uses the knowledge in this book in his sporting events where he becomes extremely rich. The book has results of every single game, and thus he keeps altering the history.
Imagine how it would have been if you had a time machine that goes ahead into the future and informs you what you could do right at the moment so as to be rich and successful in future. You travel in time when you have a million dollar affiliate marketing business. So, what valuable knowledge would a future-millionaire-you tell a younger version of you?
Here are 7 unique internet marketing tricks that the future-successful-millionaire-you would want you to know.
1. Have Clarity of Your Goals and Reason
A goal of $10,000 or $25,000 a month is great, but why do you want to achieve it? Obviously, it is not because you want to see pieces of paper with dead presidents (or existing ones depending on where you are); you want money to improve and enjoy your life.
So, do you want to venture into a internet marketing business because you want to get out of your boring 8 hours a day job? To retire in the next couple of years on your favorite island? To have more time for your family? When you set your goal and attach it to the reason why you want to achieve the goal, it becomes a lot easier to set and execute a well-laid out plan to achieve it.
2. Start Now
You need to have a confident mind because you are smarter than you think. Maybe you have the mentality that you are not fully equipped to venture into that project that you have in mind. But the odds are that you already know plenty, and you can learn the rest along the way. So, if you haven’t started, stop stalling and hit the ground running.
3. Find Your Motivation
If you want to fail, then work on your business when you feel like working and rest when you feel like not working. No one has ever built something worthwhile by working on it when they felt like it.
There are days you will feel low, but you need to find the motivation to do what you are supposed to do. Even if that means failing to follow up on your favorite TV show, you need to do everything possible to do everything that you are supposed to do to make your business successful. At the end of it all, you will see that it was worth it.
4. Avoid Distraction
You need to make a plan and stick to it. Once you decide to follow a path, just concentrate on that one path without getting distracted by other profitable paths that pop up on your way.
For instance, if your goal is to build an authority site for training dogs, then don’t get distracted by the money people are making in CPA unless you are planning to use CPA type ads on your site.
All your efforts and concentration should be on what you decide to do. Nothing great was ever created without focus and hard work. Even when it gets tough, harden up and maintain your focus. Just bite the damn bullet and press on.
5. Stop Believing In a Magic Money Button
There is no magic button that generates or multiplies money out of thin air. Therefore, stop chasing it and wasting your hard earned money on it. Success is as a result of hard work and focus, and in the same way, making money takes work. Yes, IM can be simple and straightforward, but there is no magic button for generating money. If there was, ask yourself why they are selling it for only $47? It could be $47 million.
6. Automate Your Business Processes
To be successful in your business, you need to automate most of your business activities. Automating these activities is essential to maximizing your efforts. You need to automate anything that should be automated and if you can’t automate it, then see if you can outsource it. Outsource the tedious duties so that you can focus working on your business instead of working in your business.
7. Step Back To Examine
Even if you are making progress and heading in the right direction, take time out to examine and analyze what is going on in your business to know if there are improvements needed and whether you are heading in the right direction.
