Persistence brings Results

To make a mark in your online business you need to be a persistent person. I am very disciplined to surf everyday in the top surf programs and to do regular mailings in safelists. I know that doing this brings results. I track what I do and match signups and commissions against this work.

Forget the quick wealth schemes on the Internet - the only person who gets rich is the starter of the scam. There is no shortcut, effort in = rewards out.

Persistence allows you to keep going when the results dry up temporarily. There are lull periods, usually over mid summer, when people are not as active in being on the web. Don't let this put you off, just keep going and before long the results start again.

It is what I call the loneliness of the long distance surfer.

Have a great day.

Get your Name out there

In todays online world there are a myriad of competing businesses. What makes your business different? Do people know who YOU are? The personal touch is all important. Customers like to deal with people they know, or think that they know.

Any advertising you do needs to have your picture on it. Believe me this works. Every email you send should have a signature line that promotes your business. Get a blog like this and engage with your customers.

Business has changed over the last 30 years and the approach to digital customers needs to align with current expectations.

Safelists - an update

Some posts ago I wrote about safelists. I have been using them for some months and I am getting consistent results. Overall I am getting a 0.2% conversion rate. Doesn't sound much but it has equated to over 70 program signups. I spend about 15 minutes a day on it so it is worth doing.

I send out to around 19,000 people on my lists every 3 days.

To find out my recommended safelists look under the Tools tab by clicking on the link under my signature.

Goals Drive Results

The old saying goes: "If you don't know where you are going, how will you know when you arrive?".

Over the last eight days I have been looking at all my business ventures and reviewing the past year and adjusting my goals for 2012 accordingly. Some of my goals were achieved to easily so this year they are stretched. Some were too stretched but I made some progress and these have been pegged down to a more realistic level. Not surprisingly some just failed to get off the ground for various reasons.

I track my goals monthly in Excel and that gives me a time for reflection and a mini review every month.

I put my success in life down to setting goals which I have done consistently all my adult life and achieving a good number of them. As well as business goals I also have personal, educational and family goals. I am a great believer in having a healthy work-life balance but as a Type A personality I have to work hard on this...

Have a great day and may you reach your goals in 2012.

Track your Traffic Exchanges from One Program

I have been using a program Called TECommand Post for some time. This program allows you to manage your credits, banners and text ads for up to 999 programs from one set of dynamic report pages.

I am sold on this as it saves me hours every week.

One of the advantages for me is that I can find where I have unassigned credits, banners and texts across hundreds of my programs. I checked today and I found tens of thousands of banner ads that I had not assigned.

I use the tool daily and assign credits from the 10 sites that have the most unassigned.

Highly recommended

Be Ethical, Kind and Focused

I have three principles for business conduct:

1. Be ethical - treat your customers, staff and suppliers in a fair and considerate way.

2. Be kind - treat your customers, staff and suppliers in a kind and friendly way.

3. Be focused - decide on what you want and then pursue it.

Simple but effective and the application of these principles has allowed me to sleep at night and to run a successful business both offline and online.

Increasingly in the coming years we will need to move from the "Greed is good" to the "Green is good" philosophy. If we don't care for our environment and allow unbridled corporate greed to take first place then we will all suffer the consequences.

Happy New Year 2012

Well it's 2012 and the ideal time to reset your goals. I find that having goals helps me to measure progress which is very beneficial. It is motivational and helps you to keep focus. I also find that reassessing my business direction at the start of the year allows me to align what I do with my strategic goals.

The last 6 months I have got 67 referrals at an excellent program called Click-Track-Profit (CTP). CTP is a business training program that helps you to sell evergreen products and build a residual income. Click my signature link to check it out.
