The One Thing You Must Have to Make Money Online: It’s Not Just What You Know — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com
From the millions of people that I’ve coached into how to make money online, I often hear that they don’t want to work for themselves. They want to make money, and they don’t want to have to listen to anyone. This is a bold-faced lie.
We’re going to talk about this today, and we’re also going to talk about what it takes to be an internet entrepreneur.
Working For Yourself
Do you have what it takes to be an internet entrepreneur? The answers might surprise you. The number of people who want to make money online and the amount of people who actually do what it takes is very wide of a gap.
Who doesn’t want to make money online and do whatever they want? People want this, but they’re lying to themselves about wanting to work for themselves and not having to listen to anyone.
You might want to run your own business and call your own shots, but you come onto my YouTube channel and watch my videos because you want me to tell you what to do. Isn’t that counter-intuitive to calling your own shots?
No one is calling me and telling me what I have to do. Every day I wake up and think about what I have to do to make my business grow. There’s no set-in-stone philosophy or formula. No one will tell you exactly what to do every single day. If they do, then you have a job.
What It Takes
Everyone wants money, but they don’t do what it takes to get there. It’s so simple and so easy, but many people don’t actually do it. It takes a specific skill set, and it’s the ability to get people to do things. Internet marketing is all about influence.
You are paid in direct proportion to
- The amount of people you influence or
- The manner in which you influence people
Anyone can set up a blog. It’s not about your website, your design, your web hosting company, or what autoresponder you use. It doesn’t matter what you sell. It’s about the way you say things, and knowing what to say. What matters is if you can influence people.
It takes a special something to be able to do this. Knowing how to write ads is a really important skill to know if you want to make money online.
If you can influence people with your words, then you can make money online. You need to learn to make your words have an impact. Make someone feel something. Everyone wants a feeling.
Look at Facebook. If you’re on Facebook and you have a bunch of friends and you post something, and people respond, congratulations. You’ve influenced people to react.
The internet has all the secrets. If you want to know what people search for, go to the Google Adwords Planner. If you want to know what’s going on at Facebook, look at what’s getting looked at a lot. If you want to know what works on YouTube, look at who’s getting a lot of views and interactions and subscribers. It’s not rocket science. You have to look at it objectively, because the internet tells you what you need to do. It’s like a step-by-step plan.
Right now, there are millions of dollars floating around. It’s being spent. It’s being sold. Advertisers are paying it. Google is getting some of it. Twitter is getting some of it. Facebook. Advertisers. I’m getting some of it. Every minute, my website makes money. All day, every day.
If your website makes one dollar a minute, every minute, you’re making $1,400 a day. That’s about half a million dollars a year.
Affiliate marketing is very simple. But simple isn’t easy. If you want the good things in life, you have to take a risk for it. It’s easy to influence people when you know the most about them. There are formulas for everything, and they work every time, because people don’t change—and they are easily influenced.
You can make the money you want to make by simply listening and providing the vehicle to help people better their life in one simple way. The difference is in knowing what you need to do every day. Have a strategy, have a plan to get the right person, influence them in the right way, and take them to what’s going make you money, or what’s going to help them. Hopefully it will be the same thing.
No one cares what you do. That could either be the most depressing thing in the world or the most liberating.
As you move forward, ask yourself these questions:
- Are you afraid of success?
- What’s your risk threshold?
- Do you have what it takes to make this business work?
- Can you influence people?
- Are you going to learn the skill of influence?
- What does to take to make money?
- What are you willing to do?
- What are you going to do today that will add to your income every day?
Pay attention, take a risk, learn influence, and try something.
