Last week I wrote a post about what to buy if you are new to Internet Marketing.
Today I’d like to talk about what to buy if you are already making some money.
If you are making money online, then it’s time to have a plan based on what you are doing that works for you.
At this point, you probably have a system that you can replicate again and again – to make more income.
So your plan should basically be a list of activities that your system requires.
For example, if you are promoting physical products as an affiliate, your plan can be:
- do keyword research
- create blogs (or sites) for the products you are promoting
- drive traffic to those blogs with articles
- promote the blogs and articles with baclinks
This kind of list is important to have because it will keep you focused and stop you from getting sidetracked by other methods.
And it will help you make wise buying decisions.
I want you to realize that at this point buying and following certain products can sidetrack you and take you away from your money-making system.
But buying other products can multiply your results and make you a lot more money.
So you need to be able to tell the difference and understand what to buy in order to keep making more and more money.
Since you already have a system that works for you, the type of product you want to get now is something that will enhance what you are already doing.
For example, you might want to get a good keyword research tool.
Or a course that teaches how to get more traffic to your blogs.
Or a tactic that will improve what you are doing or add to it.
Just make sure that it will help you with what you are doing right now.
So when you come across a new course, the question to ask yourself is:
Will this help me make more money online with what I am already doing?
And do I have the time and resources to put this into practice?
Get it if the answer to both questions is yes.
(of course you also want to make sure it has good recommendations and reviews, and a money back guarantee)
I have bought several products where the answer to these questions was yes, and the tools and training that I’ve received were certainly worth the price. Even when the price was high – and I’m talking about thousands of dollars here – most of the time it was completely worth it, and I’ve received my investment back manyfold.
If the answer to one of the questions above is no – then don’t get the product.
So – back to our physical product affiliate example – if you come across a course that teaches how to create adsense sites, or how to write good sales pages – understand that this is not right for you right now.
But if you come across a keyword tool that will save you time, or a way to get more high-quality traffic to your site, then go for it.
Now, there will come a time when you feel that you have maximized results from what you are already doing, or that you would rather concentrate on another income stream.
That’s ok. There’s nothing wrong with that.
In fact, I’ve done it many times. I mean, adapting to change and learning new things is the name of the game in internet marketing…
So if you are sure you want to change directions, then go back to my previous post and make sure the new system you are looking at is what you want and should be doing right now.
Pay attention to the comments on my post as well. Especially what Rob said:
“Learning new methods can only improve your ability to adapt to changing conditions and maybe create another income stream, … But, I hope you can see the difference between chasing after every latest product-launch and mastering a method, replicating it and getting runs on the board, and then learning another method.”
