A lot of people have always thought that building a successful marketing business on the Internet is ‘Mount Everest’. The reality is that it’s much easier than you might think, because online success boils down to one key virtue – “Never Give Up!”

Why did I start blogging or writing/marketing alltogether?
I feel it’s important for a business owner in today’s digital realm to connect to it’s customer’s and readers. Most people like to know about the business owner before you start talking sales and products. As well, I feel it’s important to give people some helpful information and what to avoid online since it is a landmine online to get started with so many pieces to the jig saw puzzle, any tips can shorten the learning curve over time. Again….i’m constantly learning, so this is my blog to post worthwhile topics related to marketing and sales. No guru around here! I got mentored by one of the best when i was a kid my uncle Barry Weaver, he was very influential on my entrepreneurship mindset.
And, I have a genuine interest in helping others online to expand their business and make money, with whatever business model they are using to get to their dreams realized. Not interested in get rich quick schemes or the last s cams floating around, i’m the “Blue Collar Worker” type of entreprenuer. Putting out some good content is paramount on my blog, people just wanna know what works and really what doesn’t.

What You Need To Know for a Dot Com Business lifestyle
1.) It takes time to Create a successful business online
You may have heard a lot of people saying making money online is a easy. But believe me it takes time and effort to build long lasting income streams. I’ve been at it since i was a sports writer for stanleycupcontender.com for 7 months and still made very little, and now building my own personal marketing blog will probably take a good year to start seeing results, just from my blog and content writing.
However, there are quicker ways to get to the end of the rainbow with automation and key products and traffic in place. By working online and establishing your online business and brand, you get rewarded much more than those who are in the ‘Rat Race’ with no end in sight.
In online marketing, you have to learn new skills, work hard and be opened minded, but if you continue to put in hard work, money will start coming to you.
Don’t worry, I will help you to get started on the right path, with the right tools and coaching.
2.) Don’t expect to get rich overnight, be patient.
If you want to get rich overnight, don’t expect me to help you, cause it hasen’t happened for me either. With my assistance, many people have been able to create a steady stream of life-changing income on the web, but what they do is work hard following what the coach’s suggestions.
You can’t make massive amount in a day or two, but if you make a habit of working hard, you can definitely create an impressive income in a short period of time. For example: The sales funnel is a ‘3 month’ turnaround, in other words will get the full effect in 3 months, not the first month. And on average getting returns of 42%, so that’s worth the wait.
I made a lot of mistakes while running my businesses online and faiuled many times, and to help you avoid those mistakes during your journey, I have spent a alot of time writing the content on this blog for you. But eventually, it is up to you; you need to work hard and take action. I will show you nthe best traffic techniques, strategies, and type of funding needed to scale up your business.
