Build A Business Not A Hustle

This concept is one that I find it’s harder to stick to then most people realize. I get consulting clients who still don’t want to abide by this. I refuse to teach someone how to make “quick money”. There is no point. That well runs dry really fast.

To get to the point where you see many successful marketers are at, it takes patience. The fact is most people just don’t know how much hard work and dedication it takes to make decent money online.

What I don’t understand is no matter how many times they read that, they refuse to accept it. I know people who wasted years chasing fast online bucks. If they would have spent that time building their business, I have no doubt they would be making 6-7 figures by now.

The truth is IM really hasn’t changed all that much since its creation. Of course it has evolved along with the times and technologies, but the basic principles of success still apply. Aside from the more recent web 2.0 (Video technology, Social Bookmarking, etc.) things really haven’t changed that much.

The fundamentals such as having a plan, building an email list, having an affiliate promotion strategy, developing an effective email marketing strategy, and creating a great product still are the determining factors of success. I feel a major problem with newer marketers is they believe with all the new additions to internet marketing, they can somehow skip the old school fundamentals.
