What is the most important quality in a person that has been successful online?

Well, many of the online gurus of today will tell you that they have a monopoly on that answer and in doing so, will make you pay $47, $97 or $147 in order to find out. The way in which products are inflated in price online is a bit ridiculous, especially when you consider that the vast majority of them are useless.

I’ll tell you free what others might make you pay money to learn; the most important quality in a person that has been successful online is perseverance.

Just as it is in the offline world, so too is it in the online world. If you want to be successful online, you need to be able to keep at it. Even if you are only working an hour a day, every day, you need to do that. Maintain forward momentum in the creation of your business and eventually you will start to see some success.

Huey Lee is perhaps one of the more successful of what people call an “internet guru” and the owner of the NoMonkeyBusiness website. While I have never tried the product on the website, I have been on his mailing list, and every second or third e-mail that he sends out talks about keeping yourself working in order to get better results.

Additionally, one of the most popular programs in the history of the internet is Simpleology and part of that program is exclusively focused on persevering through difficult times. There is no question whatsoever that those who are best in the business got where they are through hard work and perseverance, rather than by having some secret magic bullet formula.

If you decide that you are going to be defeated from the get go, then even the simplest of circumstances can beat you. But, if you pledge to yourself that you are going to work a little every day until you see some results, then you are going to eventually get results. Even if you don’t, you will have proven to yourself your own personal ability to persevere and that is going to do nothing but help you later on down the road.

One of the things that you will see a lot of on the internet are people who have managed to build up businesses that are now making them six and seven figure incomes.  While those figures are a rare occurrence, they are a reality to some. So many people are struggling to try and earn even $1,000 in a single month. The dream of thousands or millions is just that, a dream.

However, when you think about it and look at all the similar money making programs available, and the people that are successfully earning seven figures, chances are they are using the same techniques that people making $50,000 or less a year from the internet are using.

There is one obvious difference between those two cases; the money that they make. But what are they doing that is so different? Is there really even a difference?  After all, if they are using the same methods, is it simply a matter of luck that a factor of one hundred separates someone from making thousands instead of millions if the two people are doing the same thing?

Actually no, it has nothing to do with luck at all.  There are many little differences, which we look at in blog posts at ViralKing. One of the differences is something known as diversification. 

If you come up with a content site, paste AdSense all over the place and then sit back to admire your work (and update that one site) for the rest of eternity, you might do well for yourself but at the same time you are never going to get to the point where you really take advantage of what you have available to you. 

This opens up a very big point. Adsense is not nearly what it was before and now with them changing the click spaces to only headlines and url’s many top publishers are suffering. Plenty of Fish is a very large dating website, in fact bigger than all the free dating sites combined. He runs Google Adsense and has noticed a shocking result. His income is down 60% in the last 2 months, and this is a guy that makes well over $100k a month from Adsense, we are talking big money!

That scenario is something you would see from someone making $50,000 or less a year.  Someone making $5 million a year would add ten other revenue streams, all completely different to the one website in order to double, triple or even quadruple the results and then build dozens of other websites exactly like it. The step after that is to then find another method that works and build dozens of those sites too.  Diversification is the key to making money online; just ask any of the experts, from John Chow in blogging (Who is on track to make over $300k this year from his blog) all the way to the Rich Jerk in content websites.

I wrote this as I see so many posts these days from people who have tried MLM’s and making money online and simply haven’t. They then ask: “Is it possible for me to make money online”, here is my answer:

When the internet was first implemented, nobody ever thought that it would be the big thing that it is today. The internet has truly revolutionized the way that we do just about everything, from paying our bills, to shopping, and even working. Making money online is a bit taboo these days; there are so many ads out there and so-called ‘companies’ that are promising to help people get rich, if only they will shell out $14.95 for some so-called ‘training materials.’ These ads are meant to appeal to the desperate and the ambitious alike; after all, fifteen dollars is nothing when you can make that back in just a day, right?

There are a few things to consider. First of all, you should never, ever have to pay money to make money if no noticeable ‘real’ value is provided in return. Perhaps spending money on a new outfit or a better computer or something that will help you in your working endeavors, but paying for access to information that may or may not be useful in the real world—is ludicrous. If you are going to look for ways to make money online, do so in a way that is not going to cost you money up front for no benefit, money that that person offering the service should know that you probably cannot afford. Advertising is different all together, there are billions of sites and hundreds of millions of people online, advertising is required to get you eyeballs, but paying for access to a compensation plan, like many of the so called ‘mlms’ out there today is NOT the way to go.

This goes for everything—typing ads, taking surveys, writing product reviews. If you are going to do it and get paid for it, then there is no reason for you to have to pay to do it. If it sounds like it doesn’t make sense, it’s usually because it doesn’t. Use your best judgment when it comes to investigating ways to make money online, so you don’t lose out on valuable dollars of your own that you can use to put towards something else—perhaps a more worthy online money-making endeavor.

Just because there are folks that collect fifteen dollar payments in exchange for destroying a person’s dreams doesn’t mean there are no legitimate ways to make money online. If you have the time and the energy to look for opportunities, there are plenty of ways to make money online as long as you find them. Making money online is possible—but you won’t get rich overnight. Sorry, folks—nothing worth having comes quite that easily in life.

I am writing this from experience and have been there, having my dreams dashed. I have since got over this ‘get rich quick’ and now prosper promoting affiliate products and running my own sites (Like webhosting etc.)

If you have a dream of making an income online, don’t give up on it, but make sure you are not misguided and focus on the things that really matter and will really build up an income for you

Anyone who has a website and does any kind of marketing, their main concern is search engine optimization (SEO).  Are they however, overlooking something that may be just as important as or possibly more important than SEO – Internet branding.

What is Internet branding you ask! Branding is not something just done to cattle anymore, as an Internet business person, it is important to brand yourself, or your company so that you are recognized. Designing a recognizable logo for your company is one of the first steps in branding yourself.

When Ray Kroc worked for the McDonald brothers, he had a vision. He wanted those golden arches to be known around the world. He was successful in branding not only himself but his business since the golden arches of McDonald’s are the most well known and recognizable logo in the world.

You are probably wondering how you can do the same thing Ray Kroc did with McDonalds to your online business. If you have the time, the dedication and the persistence you can succeed.

Think of Google®. Can you see those colored words in your head without having to go to their webpage? If you can, they have done their job at branding themselves. What about Yahoo!®. What comes to your mind when you think of them? For me it’s the Yahoo!® sound. Next time you are on their home page, click on the exclamation mark, if you don’t know what sound I am referring to, you will after that. These online businesses have done a great job in branding themselves. They are recognizable, which is the entire reason to brand yourself since branding isn’t just about the logo or the website itself, but it is something you think of when you think of that company.

Since both branding and SEO are both great marketing concepts, when combined together could literally take your business places you only dreamed about.  There are some who will argue that SEO is more important than branding while others will argue the exact opposite.  Why should you have to settle for just one form of marketing when there are clearly 2 that work? You shouldn’t, which is why both branding and SEO are equally important forms of marketing, both online and off.
