The Internet is one big moving object that changes all the time. There’s always something new and what worked last year doesn’t work this year (sometimes even what worked yesterday doesn’t work today!).
So, what do you do? You have to keep learning. I spend at least 40% of my work week learning new methods for marketing and making money. There are a lot of scammers out there, but there are also some real geniuses too. Most of them are not actually geniuses, they just figured out one little thing that works well. Our job is to keep learning and to learn from multiple people and sources. Also, don’t be scared to buy software and new courses. It’s the only way to get an edge online.
But, the main thing is action. You can learn all you want, but if you don’t apply it you wasted your time and money and you’ll never make any money. So just keep this in mind. Buying courses and software is great. Learning from the courses and using the software is even better. And the best is applying what you learned and actually making money from it.
I’m currently listening to a course I bought on SEO. I finished a Facebook marketing course earlier today and I’m having some custom made software created for me for my Facebook marketing. Remember that the Internet is not coloring within the lines. When I was in kindergarten I failed coloring within the lines (I also ate the paste, but I have no idea why). But as an adult, going out of the lines is the best way to make money online. There’s no right answer and there’s no right way. As long as you’re not stealing or cheating, any way you make it is perfectly fine. But you’ll never figure everything out yourself and you’ll never be able to do everything yourself. Outsource, buy courses and software and continually grow and develop yourself. If you really want to make money online, never stop learning, ever!
