Planning 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.HomeBizStars.com Copyright David Chaves - 2012 3 of 5
changing 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.HomeBizStars.com Copyright David Chaves - 2012 4 of 5
