I want you to imagine somebody that’s trying to climb a building… and they’re trying to climb up it and they can’t, they’re struggling.
And then somebody else comes in and gives them a ladder… and the ladder was a the other side of the corner, they couldn’t see it.
They’re like: “here, try this ladder out… you’ll get there faster… and a lot easier”.
So the guy takes it (the guy that was struggling at first), he takes the ladder and puts it up against the building… and he takes one step up the ladder.
He just stops there.
He kinda moves the ladder around a bit and he kinda feels the sides of the ladder -he doesn’t really like.
He’s like: “you know what, I don’t really like this ladder. I’m gonna go get another one.”
So he gets rid of the ladder… because he now sees that its gonna be easier with the ladder to go to the top.
But for some reason, he doesn’t like that ladder.
So he gets rid of that ladder and he brings another one.
He starts climbing that one… takes one step up… maybe two…
And then he looks over to his right and he sees somebody else with a much nicer ladder… but they’re almost at the top already… they’re really close to the top.
So he’s like: “you know what… I don’t really like this ladder either. I’m gonna get one like that -that ladder looks better… I’m gonna get myself a ladder that looks like that”.
So then they get rid of that one… they get a ladder than looks like that one… and they go to the first step… to the second step…
And for some reason it doesn’t really feel right.
Its kinda wiggly… they don’t like they steps -how it feels when they step on it… they don’t like how it feels on their hands when they’re going up it…
So then they keep doing this over and over and over again.
What are you gonna be thinking about that person?
“Is there was something wrong with him or something… if he really did want to go to the top… he would’ve used the first ladder he had… and he wouldn’t have been complaining about it… he wouldn’t have jumped from one ladder to the next”.
That’s what a lot of people do when it comes to an online business… they’re jumping from one thing to the next… and each time they’re starting from the bottom… from square one… from that very first step… trying to get a different ladder to go up.
They see a shinier ladder… maybe a better looking ladder… they get it… it doesn’t work out for them… for whatever reason… and they just keep doing this over and over and over again.
A person with the ladder trying to get to the top of the building… its obvious that they don’t really wanna go to the top that badly.
But when it comes to your online marketing business… its not as obvious but its the same thing… because when it comes down to it…
Any business opportunity will work for you…
Any traffic source will work for you…
Any traffic method will work for you…
You just have to give it time. Give yourself time to learn it… to learn the steps so you can continue to keep growing it.
One of the best things that I learned is to start building a list -so if you haven’t started building a list yet… I suggest you start doing that now.
Stop whatever you’re doing and start building a list… because let’s say you have a list of like 10 people…
You have a list of 10 people and you continue to grow that list… and let’s say maybe a month later you decide to promote something else…
Well you have a list of at least 10 people, right?
Does that make sense?
And maybe another month goes by and you grow that list to like 100.
Well now, if you wanna promote something else… you already have a list of 100 people, right.
So you’re not really starting from scratch anymore…. so your list is gonna allow you to propel yourself forward… faster than if you were to start from zero -no leads, no list, no traffic, no nothing.
Something to think about… If you haven’t started a list yet… start generating some leads and start building your list.
