What Should You Focus On?
There are many different things that people focus on in their online efforts, such as trying to sell affiliate products, making different websites to compete for high-traffic searches, and getting a good conversion rate on pay per click advertising.
Some people have their own product to sell, and others only care about the Google Adsense revenue.
There are people who don’t even have their own site, and are making hundreds of dollars a day, but from everything that I have learned, list building is the way to succeed long term online.
So long as you offer value, build trust, and don’t annoy your list of targeted subscribers, a list is the most important asset you can ever have on the internet.
Google can change their algorithms, and punish you for doing something you didn’t even know was a bad thing to do, the popularity of social sites can increase and decrease, as was seen with a site like MySpace.
However, if you build an email safe list in the right way, and keep your subscribers interested, you will have the most chance of increasing your income steadily over time.
Maximizing Your Online Efforts
You can maximize your online efforts by having an enticing opt-in form in every page you make on your site.
For example, in the right sidebar, I have a form which if you fill out, you will get free internet marketing training, that will teach you SEO, social promotion, list building, website building, and everything you need to know to be successful online.
I give away e-books, training videos, I teach you how to make your own e-books, how to sell them with PayPal buttons, and how to make the download link, on your site, or in an email.
You can find out a lot of this information simply by surfing through the pages on this site, but if you subscribe, you will get all of the best bits sent to you automatically, in a structured way, which will take you through the process of building a site, and making it successful from start to finish.
In my opinion, this is what you should focus on in your online efforts, learning from an expert, and implementing those strategies, and then you should be well on your way to making some good money online.
