Are There Any Secrets?

Sorry it’s been a couple weeks, but i’ve been super busy with some new projects, plus the holiday weekend kept me pretty busy too with the family!

At any rate, something I was thinking about this morning…

With all of the product launches floating around lately, I wanted to talk about a few things. First, what is all the talk about “secrets”? Are there any real secrets?

I hate to burst anyone’s bubble here, but there aren’t any real secrets. There are however, tested and proven methods that can help you become successful.

The best way to explain this, is think about a real brick and mortar business that is successful in your town. What is their secret? Did they stumble upon some easy method to rake in cash?

Or did they work hard, hit the right market, improve their service/products over time and dominate that particular market?

It’s no different in Internet business. Sure, there may be a method that can make you fast cash, but most likely it will not be long term.

Here’s the real secret; Hard work, approaching the right market, and improving things over time so you’re continually ahead of your competitors.

    Yes, I totally agree with you. I’ve been buying “education” online for different purposes and each of them always claimed they have their own ” secrets”. At the end of day, it is all about taking action, mindset, determination to win/ become success. There’s no free lunch !!

    Peter–Truer words were never spoken. There is a lot of launch activity and it is hard to keep your focus if you get distracted into trying another product or system.

    I guess you have to set up a routine and stick to it. Market and keyword research aren’t taught by osmosis…you have to work at it.

    Looking forward to future tips–2 suggestions: tips on content campaign management and (one a bit off topic but no less important) how to prepare for state taxes on affiliate marketing..

    How are the pros handling the state tax issue?

    Very True. However, there is a one and only Internet Marketing Secret-

    Peter, I hope you had a great fourth of July.

    Hope… thanks! Yes, taking action is very important..

    Jeff… Thanks and yes had a great holiday, hope you did as well 🙂

    Claude… content network management is definately one thing not talked about a lot… I will be offering that soon 🙂 As far as the state tax thing, I have heard a lot of buzz… “Arnold” just vetoed the bill in CA and I believe amazon brought back those affiliates… I think this is a good thing, and I’m just keeping a close eye out to see what happens.

    Anything you can forward to me for reading material on the subject?

    Peter
