blue abstract numbersIt’s a new year!

Time to asses where we are in relation to our desire to quit the rat race and start enjoying life!

This topic is something I have talked about before frequently in this space, but it bears repeating because I keep coming across newbies who don’t understand it, and who have completely unrealistic expectations as they begin their journey in the home-based business industry.

Most newbies sign up for a business opportunity program thinking that success will come along automatically, without them having to invest anything. They either refuse to make any investment of money, (another pitfall that I have also discussed before), or they become content with buying small amounts of clicks or leads once or twice… And then they become indignant and furious when financial success doesn’t materialize before them overnight.

Online marketing is a numbers game! The rule of thumb generally goes like this: For every 100 QUALIFIED prospects that you bring to your business presentation webinar, only one or two will end up buying…

And this purchase probably won’t take place immediately, but until after you have sent them several follow-up messages from your autoresponder… And sometimes it will take longer, depending on the person’s specific situation and true level of interest.

What this means is that your goal must be to reach as many QUALIFIED prospects with your marketing message as you possibly can!

How do you reach qualified prospects? By making sure you are doing your best to reach business opportunity BUYERS as opposed to reaching business opportunity seekers… And how do you reach large quantities of opportunity buyers? By making a meaningful investment in good quality traffic to your business capture pages and webinars.

Let’s say you find a reputable Solo Ad vendor and decide to buy clicks from him/her… You will find that they sell chunks of 50, 100, or 200 clicks for very little money. The truth of the matter is that you will never get the amount of numbers you need in order to be successful by sticking to these small buys.

I’m not saying you have to spend a small fortune, but you should try to secure the means that will allow you to buy 1,000, 3,000, or 5,000 clicks at a time. That is really the only way you will be able to reach enough prospects to secure sales and grow your list at the same time, which should really be your primary goal.

Make some sacrifices and save enough money to do this, or get a part-time job on top of your full-time job, and stop spending money on unnecessary things like eating out and such. Success comes through sacrifice, effort, and hard work, and not through pie-in-the-sky delusions of overnight wealth and fortune.

Can you make good money in this industry? Absolutely! Many have even gotten rich in it, but you have to drop the mindset of average conformity and adopt the mindset of success… Take risks and do what it takes to obtain the means to do what you want and live the life you truly deserve.

Stop being scared and thinking small when considering the kind of investment you are willing to make on your future. I don’t want you to go without eating three squares a day or paying your bills, but consider going the extra mile in order to make a little more money to invest in your business, so that one day you can quit the rat race and enjoy life without stress.
