Tip 1

Always copy & paste your link into advertising. As a former Text Ad Exchange owner I can not begin to tell you how many times I rejected an ad because the link was not valid.

It doesn't take much to mess up a link. .co is not the same as .com.
Leaving out a / or a ? will make your link invalid.

And one from my own lesson. Some of the shorten link programs are case sensitive. So SeN as part of the url is not the same as sen.
I just typed in the info on a couple of ads. It wasn't until I had one ad program that verified the url that I realized I was advertising for someone else.

"One way to boost our will power and focus is to manage our distractions instead of letting them manage us."
Author Unknown

Getting focused on your business may be one the hardest things to do in the online world. There are many distractions - shiny objects, bling, Facebook, emails, hype, and BS - to take us away from the main goal.

Earning an income.

Many people never make a penny of profit online. Why? Because they fall for the empty promises of making money by doing nothing or always looking for a free ride.

And when they haven't made money in a week or two then they move on to something different. How do I know? I've been there. It takes a lot of effort to promote just one or two programs and earn money from them.

Do you think a person in the offline world would decide to start a business and because they can't decide they start 3 or 4 within a week or two? Probably not. They choose one business, work it, advertise it, nurture it until they are making a profit and good income.

It won't happen overnight for someone offline so why should it be any different online?

Choose your business and find your focus.

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."
Winston Churchill

You have two choices when it comes to building your business. You can either Create your own success or you can Wait for someone else to do it for you.

It is up to you to create your success. You do what it takes on a daily basis to build your business, to develop new friends and to encourage others. You place the ads over and over until you get to where you want to be.

You find the courage to stick it out until you do succeed. Only you can guarantee your success. Sure it may take 6 months or even a year or two but think about your education. Did you finish high school in a month?

How about college?

And your job - were you absolutely top notch in your position one month after you started?

The answer to all of those questions is probably No. So why would you expect instant success and riches in a month online?

On the flip side - if you wait for someone else to build your business it's probably not going to happen quickly either and maybe never. I was talking with a friend who joined a program that promises to do all the advertising for you. All you have to do is join and pay the cost.

He joined - paid the money and 6 months later he has not one new member under him. But he plans to stick it out for a while to see what happens. 

I don't know about you but I'd rather create my own success rather than wait for someone else to do it for me.

It's your choice - CREATE or WAIT - which will you go for? 

If you are still searching for a good program & system then I encourage you to consider Team Atlantis. We are rocking and the team holds 10 of the top 25 positions in the company. Check us out today. You can opt to join for a 30 day free trial but you will not be a member of the team until you upgrade.

Team Atlantis

"If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself."
Henry Ford

Team Atlantis is a true team build. It's not an I will do it for you or join, sit back and get rich. 

Every member of the Team must do a minimum of work each week. It's not hard but it is a requirement. You also must be willing to be a paid member in order to be a part of the Team. There is no free ride.

I had seen the ads numerous times but ignored them. And who knows what finally possessed me to investigate it further. I was familiar with Traffic Wave and I was a member.

I decided to get more info on the Team and then I emailed the Team Leader numerous times before I made a decision to join. Best move I've made. 

I got a sense of caring and commitment to ALL members not just those at the top. I began to understand why the Team was so successful - unlike other teams I had joined - this one had some minimal requirements.

There are no promises of overnight riches or even overnight income. Just a promise of you do your part and we will do ours. There is a $17.95 per month cost and it is a great way to start earning residual income.

It will take time and effort but it will happen. Join me and I will help you as I do for all of my team. Get the Team Atlantis info today so you can get started.

"Experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you." Aldous Huxley

I have learned from my experiences. And I share with you a few more tips that helped me come to where I am at this point in time. In an earlier post I mentioned some things to think about when looking at a business. Here are just a few more of those things I've learned - the hard way, I might add.
  • look for a business that has been online for at least 5 years - it's not always a guarantee they will be around later. (I just recently saw a program go under after more than 10 years due to payment processing issues.)
  • how reputable is the admin?
  • can you email support easily to get your questions answered?
  • is there some transparency (ie is there company info available or is it 'hidden for privacy' - a big red flag).
  • can you get in touch with the team leader or potential sponsor?
When I started looking at TrafficWave for probably the 4th time it was with a team build called Team Atlantis. I had seen this team leader for several years in advertisements and I finally requested more info. It was not until I got some questions answered (maybe 6-7 emails back & forth) that I joined the team. It
was a great decision and now I am working to help my team.

The requirements are minimal:
  • $18 per month
  • 1,000 hits/ week to the team site (I'll help you and teach you how to do this)
  • a commitment to your self and YOUR BUSINESS
  • the desire
That's really about it. So get the info today. You have nothing to lose.

"A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work." Colin Powell

So many times I think we are lured by the 'easy, magic' button of the Internet. Just join and you will make money...

It's free so there is nothing to lose...

We do ALL the work for you...

and the list of promises and hype goes on. 

There is no magic or easy button when it comes to business. In the online world it may not take a lot of sweat but it does take Time, Determination and Hard Work to build a business.

And it takes consistent and persistent effort to build the relationships and the team to finally achieve the success one may desire.

Don't give up on your dream.

Need some help? Join Team Atlantis and start building your business today. We will help you on your journey if you will give it some time and determination.

“Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing but nobody else does.”
Steuart Henderson Britt Marketing Management and Administrative Action

If you are in any kind of business you need to advertise and you need to have a plan for that advertising. You can't place one ad today and expect a hundred sales tomorrow.

In fact just the opposite may be true - you need a hundred ads today for one sale tomorrow. We need to see an ad at least 7 times before we are even interested in it. (At least for most people).

There are multiple ad resources available in the online world. Many are free but I challenge you to think outside the box and consider the fact that online advertising is a multi-billion dollar business.

So why not earn from advertising in addition to your main program. It is one thing that will always be needed. The type of advertising and the format may change but there will always be a need so long as people are promoting.

Make a plan to promote your business on a daily basis or even 5 days a week. Treat your business like a business. If you have a J.O.B. most likely you can't decide to give it a shot today and then again next week. You go to it on a regular schedule and you do the tasks that are required.

YOUR Business is no different.

I use lots of different resources but my favorites are listed here.
