Consider the ways of an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. This is a proverb from one of the greatest books of all times - The Bible.
Investing like an ant is a concept that we may need to take to heart. There is no ultimate investment. Investments are comprised of different categories. Investing is a process of having a continuous, long-term focus.
The economic downfall has taught me not to depend on anyone for our financial growth. Listening to experts is fine but can they really give you the answers for your money. His or her explanations and experiences may not fit everyone. One of things that the ants do is to look for food in different areas. They do not always look in the same area for their food. Ants diversify. That is what we need to do also with our money. We must have a plan for our money. I call it - financial vision.
The financial vision should be a combination of your long and short-term strategy.
The short-term strategy will prepare you for things like the economic downturn, emergencies, and unexpected expenses. You can utilize savings, CDs, money markets and other liquid areas to keep your safety nets protected. In contrast, ants look for liquid assets. They pile their food up until it is needed. They are able to tap into their reserves when it is required. The economic downturn has taught me that we must be in control of our money. We must have the ant mentality.
The long-term strategy will prepare you for the long haul. A successful investment strategy must have these three objectives: diversification, long-term focus and continuity. With that being said, we should look in all areas to become like ants with stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurances, and real estate. All in all, there is no way to become wealthy in one area of financial planning. It is the overall plan that will get you there. Here is my final proverb, good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
In order to easily make $100 to $1000 Dollars a day online you have to have the right information. Once you have the tools in place, the income will follow, provided you dedicate a routine of following certain steps to see it through. There are no magic buttons or special tricks that simply do everything automatically.
5 Easy Steps
How many ebooks or reports have you purchased lately promising to put you on the easy road to internet wealth? Don't worry about keeping count, it's a necessary step in your online marketing curve.
A word of advice; don't let your friends or family chide you for not becoming an Internet Millionaire overnight. Just remember that its the 80-20 rule that applies to business life online, just as it does in the 'real world.' Of every 100 marketers trying to make money on the internet, only 20% will really ever make it. The other 80% try, but never get started or remain unfocused, hopping from one opportunity to another.
If you want to be successful (just as in real life) you have to practice the 'Power of One' approach. That means focus on one thing at a time, get really good at it... then move on.
I'm sure your curiosity is boiling over right now wondering just how easy it's gonna be to make $100 a
day. After all, I'm pretty sure plenty of so called "Gurus" have already promised you instant riches... right?
So what exactly makes the steps I'm going to give you any different from what you already have? There are really more than five steps to successful Internet Marketing, but for the sake of time, I'm cutting the fluff and giving you the condensed version. But don't worry... what I'm sharing works!
Ready to go? These are easy, fundamental steps that you should learn and work on every day.
Step 1 in the $100 A Day Income System is this...
Make sure you have a PayPal, Clickbank and a PayDotCom account setup for yourself. That's most important! That's how you're gonna get paid ;-)
All are quick and easy to setup. It just takes a little of your time.
You don't need a product or service of your own, you really don't need much of anything.
JUST THE ABILITY TO WRITE A GOOD RECOMMENDATION for someone elses product!
Before you stop reading this article because you possess an inherent fear of writing, I've already made sure you have a way around that, too. You're simply going to become an expert at speaking your article/review (recording it) and having it transcribed. Having someone transcribe your spoken article, may cost you $6.00 to $10 bucks. That's all... no more I can't write excuses, OK?
I know... I'm probably jumpin' way ahead here, but I know you may be thinking about so many other obstacles that you may just think this is going to be too hard... right?
Listen to me... just one step at a time, OK! We're going to go over a lot of things here for sure. All I want you to do for now is relax and trust in the fact that we're gonna go over everything you'll need to know to be successful with my system.
Okay... the first step you've taken is ensure that you have accounts setup so you'll be sure to receive proper credit (and profits) on product referrals.
So here's Step 2 in our $100 A Day Income System....
We're going to capitalize on an ingenious method where we simply write one article a day (approximately 350-700 words) and in that article you offer a detailed, unbiased review of someone elses product. That's it!
Step 3 - You go to Marketplace - ClickBank and browse through the programs that you already have knowledge or interest in. Spend some time there. You don't have to feel like you have to pick the first one or two you see. Read the "Pitch Page" and see if it's something you feel you might buy.
Later on, once you get to feeling comfortable there and learn the different ways to search, you'll feel right at home. Several tips for you; when you do your searches, change the search results level from 10 to 30. This will save lots of time. Tip two is don't pick the most popular listed programs as there are a lot of people competing for those.
Learn the difference between 'sort' methods. They are: Popularity, High and Low gravity, % Earned and % Referred. As mentioned earlier, take your time and get to know Clickbank well, really well.
To recap a bit....
*You've setup your affiliate accounts with Clickbank, etc
* You're going to find some products you are interested in reviewing and write a short product review about that product.
* Later, we'll then submit these articles to some popular article directories such as the one you're on now.
Step 4 - Now, let's talk briefly about the actual construction of your article.
Your title is the most important part of your article!
Spend 50% of your efforts on the "TITLE" of your article. This is extremely important. If your title isn't full of benefits for it's readers, chances are the article won't even get read... so spend a lot of time on it!
The above point is EXTREMELY important! The title of your article will decide it's success or failure -- plain and simple!
Step 5 - And here's the kicker...
Once you've written your article, you are afforded the opportunity to place a small "About The Author" byline at the bottom of each of your articles. Many article publishers use this "ad space" to tell folks a little about themselves and then also place a link back to their website.... just like below.
So... you're going to use this small ad space to place a brief note about you and leave your website link where they can easily find your affiliate product link. This way, when someone reads your rave review about a particular product, they just might want to learn a little more about it. So, they simply click on the link at the bottom of your article and VIOLA! They are transported through cyberspace and...
You get credit for the referral and more importantly a commission if this person decides to buy the product. Dang! I love the Internet!
Follow these steps and do them religiously EVERY DAY and you'll certainly be on your way to seeing how others constantly open their email every morning with a hot cup of their favorite coffee and see those PayPal paydays.
