I spend all day internet marketing and I still have some days where I don’t seem to get much done. So I really empathize with you if you are only part-time: you time with IM is just so precious. You have to make the most of it.
Something which has worked for me is this.
FOCUS ALL YOUR TIME ON MONEY-MAKING TASKS
It’s easy to persuade yourself that reading about that next internet marketing product, or reinstalling a computer program, or checking out facebook, or tidying your desk…. or whatever it is you spend you time on, is important to do.
The thing is, the only important thing to do with your IM time is: make money.
After that, it becomes easier. (Not easy – but easier lol )
So, when you sit down to do your IM work, forget the ‘maintenance’ tasks. Launch into the tasks you have identified which will make you money. It is surprising just how many of those ‘maintenance’ tasks will look after themselves.
Timing Yourself Is A Big Help
And use a timer or a stopwatch. Make sure you spend serious chunks of time on the tasks you have identified as being high-value – in terms of earning you money. And timing yourself can really help to keep you on track. Set it for an hour or two – and stop it if you have any interruptions. It’s amazing just how focused this can keep you.
Keep focused on the tasks which are actually going to make you money.
How Do You Make Money – Exactly?
Not sure how exactly to make money? Then follow a system to do exactly that.
There are some great ones on Warrior Forum. Here is one:
This is a Warrior Special Offer (a WSO – usually these are high quality, low price and low-hype products) talking you through a realistic method of setting up sites and making money out of them. I have been Skyping with the creator, Simon, and he is a genuine guy with real knowledge. I KNOW he knows what he is talking about. And he is simply not a hypey guy – very down to earth.
So if you have not got a clear money-making system which you are working on with your internet marketing time, check out Simon’s product for creating sites fast, and making money out of them. It’s a goodie.
And do keep focused – and do the IMPORTANT stuff first – the stuff that makes you money!
BTW – If you have your money-making method in place, and want to know how to get cheap traffic – not free, but cheap (really cheap) and to get it quickly, do check out another WSO (cheap, excellent quality…) this time from Mark and James:
THE QUANTUM CLICK METHOD
This course is full of great content and brilliant ideas for getting traffic – at the sort of prices you used to be able to when Google Adwords started up – I mean 2-5 cents a click (instead of a dollar and up, as it is now).
What is covered, is various methods of getting traffic which hardly anyone is using – so you can get in while they are still cheap. Now, folks, if you have a sales process when you know you earn, perhaps, $25 for every 100 visitors you send to a certain page, then it’s clearly worth, say, 5 cents per visitor to send more there – that’s only $5 for sending 100 visitors to your page.
This makes enormous sense. Spend $5 to earn $25?? How many times would you do that?
So, if – or when – you have any money-making page, check out this product – I love it a lot.
