There are many other factors of course, but not understanding these may lead to us quitting short of the finish line.
Consistency Will Help You Attain Success Making Money Online
Consistency is everything when it comes to making money online you should be engaged in some type of activity on a regular basis if you expect to succeed. “The Compound Effect” basically boils down to this; small steps taken over time are cumulative and eventually add up to results. For example, if your idea of working from home is starting a blog and monetizing it; you don’t post a blog daily for the first week then sit back and wait for success. It does not happen this way, you need to be consistent and post to your blog frequently even better daily. Don’t expect hundreds of visitors to your post overnight just focus on getting your first visitor. Your subscriber list will grow slowly at first one visitor at a time but you will soon see your subscriber list growing exponentially. It is these consistent actions of doing something everyday that will get you success overtime.
We tend to ignore the effects that happen overtime as they are not readily apparent in most cases. Especially in online marketing where you may post an ad somewhere and maybe not see any significant results. However, if you post an ad somewhere everyday you will soon notice an effect. What happens to most of us is we are oblivious to these little effects that are happening very slowly in our business and when we do not see the results we were expecting we “QUIT”. Rest assured that simply trying an opportunity will in most cases not get you results, you need to engage in activities conducive to your success and more importantly you need to be “Consistent” in your engagement. On the other hand “QUITTING” will lead to failure every single time.

Work Harder or Work Smarter To Improve Your Chance of Success Making Money Online
Don’t you just love reading those testimonials on most any sales page for an online marketing opportunity?? They are there mainly to show that there are individuals out there who are having various levels of success with that particular opportunity. They are not supposed to serve as some form of guarantee that you will have the same level of success, only to show that if you do the right things for the right amount of time you may see similar results. What is not often mentioned is the level of experience or particular skill sets these folks may possess. It is important that you understand going in that you may not have the same experience or particular skill sets. In other words you may be starting out with a whole different set of resources in your toolbox. Try not to let that discourage you or deter you from joining the opportunity. Even though you may be starting out at a different level you can still achieve results if you compensate for any short falls by either working harder or working smarter.
First of all making money online should be considered a business and you need to treat it as a business if you expect any measurable results. Having said that it is going to take hard work from the get go. It almost goes without saying that the harder you work the better results and rewards you will get. But working harder is not your only option, you should also consider working smarter. The good news is that when it comes to online marketing opportunities the possibilities for working smarter are bountiful. To work smarter online is no different than working smarter in a brick and mortar business it is going to involve tracking your activities in one way or another. You can use a simple spread sheet, complicated software, or even a tracking system of some sort. You can find some YouTube videos fairly easily that can help you with this part of the process. Some facets of your business you may want to track are your advertising dollars, your traffic sources, and any ads you may have placed. This is not an all inclusive list so you may want to do a little research and see where else you may want to improve your return on investment. One other option you have is to join an opportunity that includes some form of tracking in their back office that you can use as part of the program.
