I often talk about building an online business the right way. So naturally, you ask what is the difference between building the right way and building the wrong way. It is not a judgement about someone doing something that is wrong, immoral or bad—instead it is more about the methods used to build a business and how sustainable and strong the foundation that the business is built upon is. To me, building a business the right way means building something that is sustainable and meant to stand the test of time because the building blocks are strong and true. This method typically takes much longer to see results, but the results also tend to be far more consistent once they arrive.
Everyone has their own way of doing things, but like a very wise man once said, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Much like Rome, a business is not built in a day no matter how much we might wish that it is. I’m not saying there aren’t ways to make quick cash, but if you are actually trying to build something that lasts and is consistent; you will need to put in the time and effort to build from the ground up.
I will admit, that this philosophy is often times at odds with reality. I’ve been there! You need to make money now…..not 3 or 6 months from now. The only thing I can say to that is this: chasing the quick money will typically cost you more money overall, because you will keep chasing systems that sell you on making a ton of money in a very short amount of time. By investing in yourself and your business with the proper mindset, you will put yourself in a position for eventual success.
Flashing cash is sexy! Lamborghini’s are sexy! Telling someone that they can learn the building blocks to a successful online business is not, but it is a surefire way for you to reach your goals. I totally understand that some people may not be in the position to build long-term at this point and I also understand that some people want to make money with as little work as possible.
My focus is on helping those who want to build real businesses and are willing to work for it. For those, there is an exceptional opportunity to learn the process with the Wealthy Affiliate training community. You can check out the Wealthy Affiliate Overview that I wrote to get a more in-depth look at how it helps you build a successful online business.
There are other awesome opportunities that give you the ability to make money online, but none are as comprehensive or as fundamental as Wealthy Affiliate. With that being said, for those of you who are not as new to online marketing, there are platforms that enable you to be more productive and increase your conversion rates. One of those, The Conversion Pros, is a remarkable platform that provides a ton of value and gives you the ability to create as many customized sales funnels as you can. Check out the overview I did on the Conversion Pros to learn more about the type of platform it is.
No matter your experience level, there will always be the right way to build and the wrong way to build. The path you choose will have more to do with your mindset, goals and current situation than anything else. Let’s build and be successful together!
