Building A Online Business, Tips from Two of The Best MarketersPlanning on making money online this year? Unless youavoid these lethal mistakes you havent got a prayer.by Dr. Jeffrey LantAuthors program note. Like ABBA? I do. I think they produced some of the most clever, stylishand sophisticated dance music and rhythms ever. Like their mega-hit "Money, Money, Money"(released in 1976). Its not only one of the best jump-up songs ever, but its got a message you mayhave to take to heart if youre still trying (but consistently failing) to make money online.Its this: "If I got me a wealthy man..." Thats right, it may be time (and is probably way past time) touse your wiles and charm to snag a rich mate... because youre just wasting your time online...... unless....you take heed to the irrefutable verities about what you must know and do... and so finally turn theInternet into the cash hose its long been for people like me, who make money online daily, whileyou cant even figure out whos on first.Must avoid mistake #1.Dont work alone. Working online all by your lonesome is just plain nuts. I credit my awesomesuccess online to a crucial decision I made nearly 20 years ago: the overwhelming majority of onlineentrepreneurs need more skills -- technical, marketing, people -- than theyve got. For such people(and I very much include myself) success is unlikely, even impossible if you try to go it alone.Dont.Youre going to need cutting-edge tech experts; Internet marketing experts, and yes personnel tomake sales and bring in the bucks 24/7/365. Have you got this team in place? Well youd better getit together before you waste any more time and money.Must avoid mistake #2.STOP thinking, STOP believing you can built a profitable online business off free stuff. You cant.Say that again: YOU CANT! Bite this bullet here and now, once for all. Its going to cost youmoney to create a successful online business; just like it costs money to establish a successful offlinebusiness.If youve been trying and trying and trying to succeed online without investing youre probablybeyond hope. But lets assume youve still got some of your little grey cells in place and functional.Use some of them to get the money you need to create a profitable online business. Theres no wayaround it: it takes money to make money, and personally I wont even talk to the steady stream offolks who approach me without investment dollars in hand. Thats the "bad" news; the good news isthat its still ridiculously cheap to start a profit-making online business that can net you the minimum6-figure income it takes to live well these days.Must avoid mistake #3.Get educated about what you need to establish a money-making business online. Stop trying to"teach" yourself. If you knew how to make money online, I imagine youd be making money, right?But you dont. And you will never know if you have yourself as your prime expert and instructor.Bluntly, you know and can do too little to justify that.There are many fine online business-building instructors. I swear by mine: George Kosch. Hes beeninstructing me for almost 20 years now. Hes smart about what youve got to do in the constantlyhttp://www.BizBuildersCommunity.com Copyright Tim Ricke - 2012 6 of 11
Building A Online Business, Tips from Two of The Best Marketerschanging net environment, a superb trainer and communicator.... good looking, too. Ive made outlike a bandit by putting my ego where it belongs (in some closet) and LEARNING from a man whoguarantees youll make money if you follow his proven system. I did... and I have.Must avoid mistake #4.You dont know how to generate unlimited traffic to your site...and until you do, YOURE DOA.That why you must become a traffic expert immediately, if not sooner.If you launch your online business without knowing precisely where your absolutely essential trafficwill be coming from, you deserve what you get: Nada! Nothing! Zip! Yet to my utter consternationand astonishment, not a day goes by when some knucklehead tells me he hasnt got guaranteedtraffic, doesnt know how to get it, but is a "survivor" wholl figure it out as he does. OMG! Suchpeople probably believe in the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. They are casualties just waiting tohappen.Here again I want to pat George Kosch on the back. The guy is a walking encyclopedia of each andevery way that exists to generate online traffic... and trains lucky folks like me to use these everysingle day. He does it in an amazing program called "Home Business Boot Camp"... and he guidesyou (with skill and patience) to get the traffic you must have... starting today! Hes got a worldwidefollowing who swear by his methods.... as I most assuredly do myself. Do you have a George Koschin your life? No? Then book your space in the lifeboat today... youll need it!Must avoid mistake #5.It happened again just yesterday. I was counseling a gent who told me hed bought some traffic; sentit to his home page... and didnt get a single response! What did he do wrong? Just everything...The first rule of successful traffic and crucial list building is to direct ALL traffic to a landing page.Why? Because thats the proven way to get traffic, traffic, traffic and build the prospect lists that arecrucial to online success. So, ask yourself this: do you know how to create and use landing pages?And be honest, totally honest with yourself, because if you get it wrong youre toast... (By the way,you wont be surprised to learn George Kosch -- there he is again -- writes my landing pages... andtheyre gold mines.)Well, Ive run out of space, with lots more to tell you, but thatll have to wait for another day. Now,Im heading over to my favorite search engine where that fabulous dance number by ABBA iswaiting for me (and you). As I listen to "Money, Money, Money" Ill know Im the rich guy yourelooking for, the guy who can give you that cushy life youd like. But why would I want an Internetloser in my life? After all, its a rich mans world...## What do you think? Let us know by posting your comments below.http://www.BizBuildersCommunity.com Copyright Tim Ricke - 2012 7 of 11
Building A Online Business, Tips from Two of The Best MarketersA recognized Internet marketing master delivers the soberword you dont want to hear: The way youre marketingonline your failure is assured. Take the challenge and see foryourself.Authors program note. One of the great films is "Cool Hand Luke" (1967) that features this lineetched in acid, "What we have here is failure to communicate". This line is delivered just after theprison authority has slashed "Luke" with a whip, causing him to roll over and over down a long,dusty hill, each rotation more painful than the last. The warden then says what seems anextraordinary statement: that Luke had been beaten because he wanted it that way... Huh?But pretty soon you understand the authority figure is right. Luke is determined to do things his way,when that way is a certain disaster... he wont learn, wont examine his position, and will never admitto error. The only thing that will enlighten him and change certain failure to incipient progress isgetting beaten and beaten again; then he might see the benefit, the essential value of instruction,training and constant adjustment and beneficial change.Lukes pointless "system" delivers nothing but misery. Communication delivers the desired resultsthat youre too stubborn to master. So what if what youre doing doesnt work. "Its a poor thing butmine own" and therefore good enough.Thus, for the music to accompany this article, I give you the theme song to "Cool Hand Luke"because you bear more than a passing resemblance to a character and a situation that will keepfailing you and which you do not wish to change -- whatever you say. Find the music by LaloSchifrin in any search engine, and remember: its YOUR theme, obstinacy and willful adherence topresent, total, predictable failure being celebrated.Why you must master marketing to succeed online.Right now chances are whatever online enterprise you are pursuing is not only failing to make you aliving wage... it is failing to make you anything at all. Dont be coy about this; YOU are a complete,total, abject, and ridiculous marketing catastrophe. So, what have you been doing to solve thisproblem and generate increasing bucks? What have you been doing? Ill tell you what youve beendoing; the same things that delivered failure while expecting success, if you do them long enoughThis is the textbook definition of madness... and that makes YOU certifiably crazy."Your Money Is In Their Pocket!"Right now people around the world are walking around with your money in their pockets. Moreover,due to the pathetic way you "market", one thing is clear: you will never get that money. It will stay inyour customers pocket... he will in due course spend it elsewhere, thereby depriving himself ofwhatever benefit you could deliver and 100% of the profits you would have derived. Whats worse,you seem neither to know nor to care that this travesty of marketing that keeps you broke andunsuccessful is going on. Youre the poor little lamb who has gone astray... and you must beperfectly happy with that result... since you learn nothing new; try nothing new; and master nothingnew. Amazing!Magic words that deliver one hot prospect after another; the rocket ship that delivers them.To succeed online you need, first of all, prospect lists because in my well-known phrase "The list isthe business... and the business is the list." To make money you must have lists; to make lots ofmoney, you must have bigger lists. Developing this list is a project for each and every day you wantto move money from "their" pockets... to yours. The first critical question: what did you do each dayhttp://www.BizBuildersCommunity.com Copyright Tim Ricke - 2012 8 of 11

There are many ways, but heres one that takes just about 5-7 minutes perday. Its ebook marketing... and its so clever because you dont write your ebooks (though you mayif you like). I DO!Just over two years ago...In the fall of 2010, I had an epochal "AHA!" moment. Keep in mind that at that time, the GreatRecession was dragging down the Great Republic, the European Union, and the world. I wanted toseize this crucial moment when all the best things on Earth were for sale at deeply discounted prices;I wanted to seize this moment, I say, to fatten my stock portfolio and fast-growing collection ofeye-popping Old Master pictures and the best 18th century furniture. In short, I needed lots of cash...and a mechanism to deliver it to me and the eager-beavers who saw this turbulent, even frighteningtime as the right time for massive asset acquisition. Enter the ebook... the ebook you dont write butcan profit from every single day!Well over 1,000,000 formatted words, with images and musical cues, marching smartly to 1000articles.Heres the good word, bird.

Click, send...and await certain response... by people picking up the phone to call you... whenever theyre ready tocall you.Is this difficult in any way? No, its childs play.Is it time-consuming? Certainly not. 7 minutes for newbies. Under 5 for experienced marketers.Does it produce prospect leads? Yes, EVERY time you use it, which should be 7 days a week.http://www.BizBuildersCommunity.com Copyright Tim Ricke - 2012 9 of 11
Building A Online Business, Tips from Two of The Best MarketersAnd now The Million-Dollar Question. WILL YOU DO IT?Return to "Cool Hand Luke," obstinate, stubborn, beaten, unsuccessful... just plain stupid.Now lets be brutally frank with each other. I remind you that this is proven, that its simple, that ittakes but a few paltry minutes a day, that it will cause your phone to ring off the hook (especially ifyou put it on the top of each document for maximum impact), that it will ensure profits, profitswhich will grow as you grow your lists.But you, admit it, are "cool hand Luke", lazy, excuse making, smart aleck, a permanent sneer onyour lips, the know-it-all who knows nothing. Youll follow this advice for a day; maybe, two. Youllstart seeing results. Then your residual bad habits will kick in, including your acute disinclination totake phone calls from real people. After all, when push comes to shove you are most surely of the "Ilove humanity; its people I cant stand" School of Marketing. And youre a slothful bugger, too.Youll deny all this of course, just as Paul denied Jesus 3 times before the cock crowed. But the truthwill be most apparent in your derisory bank account, assets, and future. Partner, I hope that sneer onyour face and your reeking arrogance are enough for you, cause, baby, thats what youre gonna get.Capisce?http://www.BizBuildersCommunity.com Copyright Tim Ricke - 2012 10 of 11
