Today I reflected on some of my biggest internet marketing mistakes that have prevented me from increasing my residual online income. After reviewing the fruits of my recent marketing campaigns, I realized that a few simple changes in my thinking and patterns quickly changed turned these mistakes into valuable lessons.
Mistake #1: No Duplication
The first, and among the most important lesson is to use an easy to duplicate system for your team. Like the old saying goes, “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.” While a solid system will provide duplication tools and training, your new team members will look for your guidance because people follow people.
Mistake #2: No Follow-Up
With a system in place and a motivated new team member, you still need to provide something valuable, like support. Ever heard this phrase… “The fortune is in the Follow-Up!” You have attracted people to your system but are you going to leave them hanging? I have been guilty of this, even though a simple ‘How can I help?’ would have made a difference.
Mistake #3: Inconsistency
This third mistake is a big one: inconsistency. Jim Rohn once said, “We’ve all heard the expression, ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ Well, I’ve got a good question for you: What if it’s true? Wouldn’t that be easy to do – to eat an apple a day ? Here’s the problem: It’s also easy not to do.” Easy and simple are two different things, as he demonstrates in this next quote:
“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.” Also Jim Rohn. Even spending 15 minutes a day emailing, exchanging traffic, sending solo ads, or monitoring your marketing campaigns, you will see consistent results.
