Be firm on your goals but flexible on the path.

When I was 10 years old, I believed I’d become a millionaire from baseball cards. When I was 12, I used my paper route money and bought stock with a plan to become a millionaire before I was 30. At the age of 26, I made my first million on the internet. Despite the original plans as a kid it still happened, I actually did it many times over. I’m now turning 40 this year and my son wants to sell my cards and he’ll be lucky to get $1,000 for these. I guess in the end, they gave me the permission to dream. I’m so grateful.

Be firm on your goals but flexible on the path.

The Small-Scale Approach To Starting A Business Venture

by Matt Bacak

Starting out as an internet marketing entrepreneur, you may easily become overwhelmed with a variety of business opportunities and ideas for making money. I know firsthand that it’s not getting an idea that’s the problem. It’s what to do with all the ideas you come up with and all the business propositions available to you. Before I make a decision about a business venture, I look at five things:

1. Demand. Does the product, service or business venture have a clear market? Do people want this item or service? It’s a lot easier to capture existing demand than it is to create it. If I’m unsure whether or not there is a demand for something I want to provide, that’s usually a pretty good clue that it’s probably not going to work out. But if I really feel like it could be something my consumers want, I might just ask them. Better to find out now that my list isn’t interested in a potential product than spend a whole lot of time, energy and money creating something that isn’t going to sell because it isn’t wanted.

2. Profitability or ROI. Will this product, service or business venture make me money? What will my return on investment be? Sometimes, I can have a really great idea but once I look at the numbers, I’ll realize monetarily, it’s not worth it. There are times you have to scrap a project just because it’s not going to work financially. Always figure out what your profit margins will realistically be or even what the lowest estimate of profit will be before you start out with an idea.

3. Unique. Is the product, service or business venture unique enough to warrant me personally investing my time, energy and money into it? If it’s not unique enough, I could be wasting my time creating it when there is already several versions of it available to the public.

4. Automation. Can I create this product, service or business venture to run automatically? Now, I may not always want to do this but more than likely, I want to have something I don’t have to mess around with too much after it’s done. I only have so much time to invest in a project and that’s something to consider when deciding whether or not to go forward. However, if something can be automated or outsourced, that’s great. I can spend time creating other projects and pursuing other ideas for my business.

5. Longevity. How long can I sustain this product, service or business venture? How long will it remain profitable for me to do so? Can I see this withstanding the test of time or how long exactly can I maintain its profitability? This often gets overlooked by entrepreneurs because we are so excited about our new idea that we don’t focus on what’s going to happen long-term. But these are things we should know before we start out.

Once you’ve answered all these questions, then you can make your final decision about whether or not you should continue with your idea, your partnership, or your product. These five things can help you quickly and effectively determine what’s best for you and your business without the hassle of agonizing over every little detail before making a decision.

7 Simple Millionaire Fundamentals

by Matt Bacak

People always want to know how to make a million dollars. That seems to be a pretty standard goal for most people. I can’t tell you exactly how to make a million bucks, but I can tell you the hardcore fundamentals I’ve used to get me where I wanted to be- making boatloads of cash each year. These are simple tricks that anyone can adapt to their business and to their life to start achieving the success they desire. So take a look at the 7 tips I’ve compiled to get you started thinking in the right direction.

1. Specificity. The truth is you can be a big fish in a little pond or a little fish in a big pond. Which one do you want to be? A big fish in a little pond, right? Whether you are starting up your business or you’ve been at it for awhile, you will benefit when you zero in on what you and your business are about. Have a laser-like focus for your business. If you try to have too many projects in too many areas, you will fail. It’s only a matter of when. Trust me, I know because I’ve been tempted with the allure of more projects equaling more money. But I quickly discovered when you stretch your energy, time and focus into several niches, you lose not only focus but money.

2. Create and fine-tine your flagship product. This goes hand in hand with specifying your market. Take a good long look at your business before you nail down exactly what you want your flagship product to be. Your flagship product should not only be a source of income for you but drive home to people what your business is all about. Focusing on a core product will also help you figure out what complimentary products you should sell and what products you should stay away from.

3. Fail fast. It doesn’t have to be right, you just have to get it going. I tell this to my employees all the time. I don’t care if you aren’t perfect at something right away. Just get on with it. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can fail. The sooner you fail, the sooner you can start doing it right and perfect it.

4. Be aggressive. So often we hear that being aggressive is not OK but that’s crap. In marketing, internet marketing specifically, you have to be aggressive. If you don’t put yourself out there constantly, you won’t get any results. You have to stay on top of sending out email, driving traffic and closing sales. If someone doesn’t like your perceived forwardness, then so be it. The product or service you’re offering isn’t for them anyway.

5. Always know your numbers. Every time something happens in your business, you should know about it. Whether it’s when you’ve made a sale or your conversion rates are decreasing, you need to know these numbers. Knowing what your numbers are, where they should be and where they shouldn’t be is key to maintaining success and pushing forward to achieve higher goals.

6. Systems. This is a big mistake I see a lot of entrepreneurs make, especially internet marketing newbies. The trick to streamlining your business is to create systems. From who does what, how they do it, how your numbers are tracked, even the tiniest details of your organization should have a system in place. Systems make things faster and more efficient. Without them, your business will be in a state of chaos.

7. Don’t ever stop making and achieving goals. If you stop creating goals, you’re going to become stagnant. Once you stop striving to achieve, your business is over. Even if you don’t reach the goals you set out to achieve, that’s okay. Just don’t stop.

There are many strategies to making money on the internet, but nothing makes sense unless you have a big list. Email Marketing is the most profitable way to make money on the internet. When you build a list of hot and hungry prospects you control your future. Discover how to use the internet and turn your computer into a cash gushing machine.
