Like many people when they first dived into the world of internet marketing, I purchased a ton of courses and quickly got overwhelmed and frustrated, which lead me to purchase even more courses in the hope of discovering that magic secret. (Can you relate?)
I got to a point why I felt like I understood how it all worked and I could see how other people were making money. I took lots of action, followed all the advice that made sense to me and I started making some sales.
The problem was I couldn’t seem to make consistent sales. This was back in 2010 and I was making niche related sites and ranking them in the search engines. One month I would make $200, the next $40 and then the next month $150 then $400 and some months were I would make no money at all.
It was great that I was getting results but it wasn’t something I could rely on and at the time I didn’t know how to fix my problems.
That was when I decided to hired a coach in the hope to fill in the missing pieces. I was making good money in my job at the time however I still had to take a loan out to get the coach. I invested $10,000 for 6 months of coaching over skype. It was a big investment for me at the time but it has paid off many times since.
I remember on the first session we had, after some friendly chit-chat to get to know each other the first question I asked Fred was, “ok mate, tell me what is the real secret for making money online, the one that all the guru’s aren’t revealing, come on level with me”
Fred started chuckling and then he went quiet and his tone got more serious and he said…
“Ok Sam, do you really want to know the secret to making money online?’
Me: “Yes of course.” [Eagerly awaiting the answer]
Fred: “Ok here it is, the secret to making money online is focus, consistency and make it a game, that’s it.
Stay focused on what you’re trying to achieve. Learn and master the one strategy or method that you are following and don’t get distracted by other markers trying to steal your attention.
Take consistent daily action on what is making you money and make it fun. If you are ranking sites for example or videos in the search engines make it game you are playing against the search engines and your competition. Your work and life should be fun.
That’s the secret. Do you have any other questions before we start?”
Me: “Thanks, no… let’s get started” [Slightly deflated]
There really isn’t any one secret to making money online expect for staying focused and consistent in the pursuit of your desired outcome.
The key to it is knowing what your desired outcome is, what is it that you really want out of your online business?
For example do you know how much money do you want to be earning a year from your online business?
Because it requires very different strategies and business models if you want to earn $100,000 a year versus $10,000,000 a year.
Once you have clearly defined your ideal outcome for your business and lifestule, you can then apply Tony Robbins Ultimate Success Formula.
Step #1: Know precisely the desired outcome.
Step #2: Take massive action to achieve the outcome.
Step #3: Notice quickly whether the action is working.

For Rapid Results Add Step #5: Model someone else who has already achieved your ideal outcome
I want to show you an example of my friend Penny who used this same formula to have her first $1000 day as a beginner, with very little experience in internet marketing.
In this interview you will discover how Penny went from having very little internet marketing experience and simply stayed focused and followed the training she was given by someone who had already achieved the results she desired and by staying consistent Penny is now celebrating $1000 days in her online business.
Check it out, it’s a great interview
