This one is going to be short, so don’t blink:

The simplistic way to generate 20k a month revenue online is finding and maintaining 500 people, who will pay $40 a month in a recurring membership created by you.

So create a membership site, deliver $500 a month in value to those members, and charge $40 a month in fees per member.  Yes, some people will leave each month, so go get enough people to maintain the 500 member level.

No excuses why you can’t (i.e. can’t get traffic, can’t retain members, can’t, can’t, can’t, etc…) … just do it.

One is a powerful word.  Especially for today’s lesson.

One of the main reasons people fail to make money using the internet is due to a lack of focus when getting started (and sometimes when they continue after getting momentum).

When getting started…

You need one reason.

(for me it was helping to grow businesses and seeing the reaction on business owner’s faces once they achieved true freedom)

You need one skill.

(in the beginning, for me it was copywriting and a little bit of marketing…now it’s much more of a role as an online business-results coach and copywriting)

You need one niche to explore.

(for me, business owners that wanted to use the Internet to generate 1 – 100% of their revenue)

You need one method of monetization.

(sell my skills and knowledge to that niche)

So you can earn one dollar.

(did that in 2001)

Once you do that, you repeat and duplicate until you are making considerable income from one business.  But you have to earn that first dollar first…before even thinking about the “thousands” or “millions” you’ll make.

Find

One and

Capitalize on it

Until you’re

Successful

That’s the one key that opens the front door to success, and if you’ve already started gaining momentum…the one key you must return to when you feel like things aren’t going as planned with your online business.

It really is that simple folks.  But not easy…as it’s extremely likely that you’ll be faced with 1000’s of distractions and seemingly better opportunities along the way.

Forget them.

If the other opportunities were so much better than what you are / want to working on now…you wouldn’t have them being marketed to you…you would have to go and find them.  People don’t share the “real” secrets for $47 in an ebook…period.

So now, the choice is yours…

Are you going to F.O.C.U.S. and get real about your business…or get a job slaving away for someone else and line their pockets?

Until next time…

This is the final part of a two part post that should have been a small report I guess 🙂

Part 1 is here.

Continuing our “what it really takes to make money online” theme…

This whole internet marketing business game really boils down to one simple concept (and yes, it IS this simple)…

You need to think about how much value you can deliver to people to help them improve their lives first…before thinking about any profits you’ll make.

Most marketers are very selfish in their mindset to making money online.  They want that elusive “internet lifestyle” so bad that they will try to “game the system” or use all the blackhat tricks to make money using the internet.

Those internet business models don’t have long – term value…because they don’t serve people…instead they annoy people.

John Reese covered this thoroughly in his document “The Rebirth Of Internet Marketing”, which incidentally, is no longer available.

Yes, it’s from 2007, but really, the strategies that John makes reference to (as well as the strategies that I’ve pointed out in these 2 posts) are all evergreen concepts that will transcend any “marketing gimmick” that doesn’t serve people.

You can also download my Ramblings 2 Report (no longer available) which contains nothing but evergreen business strategies (105 pages of them) for you to enjoy.

(keep in mind, that blog is the one that “died” a short time ago, so I don’t know how long this download link will be active until I change hosting and change the link)

Anyhow…I think this concludes our lesson (for now).

Be on the lookout for posts on pricing, building systems for leverage in your online business, and much much more!
