What are you doing online?
Answer me that one question, what are you doing online? It is a simple question and one you should be able to answer, but I tell you what, it is one of the toughest questions for people to answer. Why?
Simple because most people don’t know what they are doing online.
It is a sad fact but many people think they are going to make money online when in fact they are not, and they will probably end up more in debt.
Here is the typical online scenario
A person decides that there is a lot more month left at the end of the pay check, and they start to research how to make money online. After all they have heard that it is super easy. They get excited by what they see and decide this is it. All they need to make is an extra $500 per month to cover bills, maybe even less.
They buy a product promising riches overnight with little work. They work their ass of with it and get no results, so they try something else, then something else until they have probably spent $500 on garbage.
Then what happens? They give up and think anything to do with the internet is a scam, and are not in a worse situation than before.
Sound familiar? I know it happened to me many times.
Here is the issue
People don’t plan on a business they plan on making money!
Yes it’s true. People look for a quick solution to make a few bucks to cover the bills and that’s it. Imagine if you did that in the real world. Open a shop to make $500 and then close down – yeah I know ridiculous right?
But every day people are doing this online. They don’t have a business mentality.
I strongly believe that if you want to make money online you have to treat it like a business. You have to make sure that you have a product or service to sell to someone.
For example, my product and or service is self help coaching. From business coaching to marketing. This can be email coaching, phone coaching, face to face or coaching ebooks and audios.
If you fail to plan you plan to fail
Oh what a cliche but it is true. Without a plan how can you achieve anything? Simple answer is you can’t.
You see you need to think about who you are, and what you want to represent online. What is your product going to be? How are you going to deliver it to the market? How are you going to construct the sales page?
Boy that sounds like work right? Well sorry to burst the bubble but you gotta do the work to make the money.
Sure once you have a few product online, then it becomes a lot easier, as you gain traction, people start to spread the word and income starts to roll in without you doing much. That’ does happen but later on not in 24 hours!
I know a few “overnight successes” and they told me to achieve their overnight success took at least 12 months of hard consistent work.
If you don’t want to plan on building a business then I am sorry to say you are going to find it hard to make money! That’s the truth right at you.
Building a business and planning
There is not doubt that you can build a business online. I am confident that you can. But you need to have a plan.
You need to;
- Discover who your niche are and what they want
- Come up with the best product name that you can that will entice them to buy
- Create the product in a format that your potential customers want to use
- Create that wining sales page
Here is the secret
There is a formula for all of this. There are certain things that people will buy, there are certain ways to formulate your language so they are put into a state where they want to buy.
After many years I finally put all of this together in a product called Fast Action Planner. In it I show you how to plan out the 4 essential parts of your business as described above.

It is possible to make money online but you have to understand that you have to have a plan and you have to stick to that plan. Without a plan you won’t be know what you want to achieve and how you are going to achieve it.
