Indeed, equipped with basic skills and training, anyone can build a business and create for themselves an extra income, if not a full-time income. But It all hinges on three key components: your individual effort, the development of your own personal skill set, and paying it forward helping others build business, too.
1. Individual Effort: It matters not what kind of “automated system” or simple program you choose to be associated with. It does not even matter if you strike out on your own, spending thousands of dollars on website development and the rest. Success still requires time and effort. Regularly schedule tasks to build your presence on the web, and thus, your income. Be disciplined in the use of your time. It is your most important commodity. As you leverage your time, you will reap long term benefits for the chunks of time you put in. Most people who start the journey into online business never do 90% of what is required and quit before they really get started.
2. Personal Development: Who are you? What do you stand for? What interests you? Continually developing your personal skills in the areas of marketing, interpersonal relationships, general areas of interest (sports, hobbies, music) make you a more attractive person, vibrant and interesting, with much to offer others. Studying and practicing excellent communication skills, marketing techniques, and socializing builds your world on multiple levels.
3. Pay It Forward By Helping Others Be a mentor and a solutions provider. Share your knowledge and expertise. It benefits others, and it benefits you and your business as well. How do you do that? First, it is important to take the “me” out of the equation. When we offer value and encouragement to others, we build trust, we create friendships, and that can lead to the referrals which build a business.
With a bit of essential training the internet business marketer can build partnerships, network with others and share information, referrals and leads. What it requires is creating a web of content which offers value to your target audience.
As visitors read your content, visit your links and listen to your recommendations, you develop a relationship with them. They will benefit from what you offer, and your honesty, helpful content and encouragement attracts them to follow your lead.
