So… This is a Sports Blog. This is MY Sports Blog, and I am getting ramped up for the 2013 NFL Season. I live, breathe and bleed football from August through February each year and I could care less about any other sport during that time frame. However, as some of you may know I also dabble a bit in the “online Marketing” business, and have done several things over the last 10 years or so trying different things to try and earn a full time income from home. Nothing I have tried has come close to what I discovered a little over a year ago due to my good friend Rhonda Pizor introducing me to the Traffic Exchange world. The one program that finally caused me to “See the light” in this online world is Click Track Profit. This program is owned by the great people of Tim Tech and if you don’t know Tim Tech, then Google them and learn more about how solid and reputable of a company they are.
Up until the last year or so, Tim Tech has focused primarily on the Traffic Exchange industry, gearing their products and training solely on that industry. in the last year that have moved over into List Builders/Mailers, Paid To Clicks, and soon, into the Auto responder industry to compete with Awebber and Traffic Wave. As long as they remained in their world (TE’s) they were the best company going, but now, ever since they have crossed over to these other industries they have received a lot of grief, criticism, and “you don’t belong here” from those both in and out of the TE industry. My response to these people is plain and simple.
GET OVER IT
The mantra of CTP is and always has been “plus one” do more today than you did yesterday. They have decided to move forward as a company and as a brand. They are becoming the one stop shop for all marketing and business owners to go to advertise their products and programs. They have a complete solution to how to advertise and make money on line, they are the best I have ever seen and no one has come close to their training, their guidance and their AVAILABILITY to their customers/members. Jon Olson, the CMO of Tim Tech hosts a LIVE spreecast seminar Monday through Friday at 4pm eastern, he encourages input from the viewers, wants you to ask questions and is always available by phone, Skype, or Email. they have full time tech support and someone actually will answer the phone when you call them. CTP is the model of how an online business should be run. they refuse to become complacent and they refuse to settle for anything but 100% commitment to their members. I cant say enough about how much I have learned from these guys, and I owe them a lot for what I have learned.
despite all of this, they still have their detractors and complainers that feel that they aren’t giving enough. they want more, they need more and they feel they are ENTITLED to more. they don’t want to put in the effort, they don’t want to spend a dime, and yet they expect to get rich overnight or in a few months. People want the “easy” way to prosperity, they don’t want to work for it, and they want someone to hand them the “secret” to being successful. I have to ask this of those that want something for nothing. What if you were building a “brick and mortar” business, would you be able to start this business for nothing or would you need to lay out cash for a shop, electric, internet, water, oh,,,, INVENTORY?… the answer of course is yes. the same is true in the TE industry, or the PTC industry, or whatever online business you are starting. you have to spend money to make money and if you think that you are going to get rich without spending your own money out of pocket then you are dreaming.
So here is my suggestion… Quit whining, quit bitching, quit complaining that you aren’t making money when you in fact haven’t done or refuse to do what it takes to get what you want. Tim Tech has done what it takes, they have expanded their brand, guaranteed their longevity and placed a sound foundation for their future by expanding their customer base, which is exactly what a business is supposed to do. so I ask you this… What have you done?… what are you going to do?…Why haven’t you gone and “plus one” each and every day? Is it laziness? is it lack of motivation? Is it complacency? What is it? Well I have a story to tell you that may in fact shock you.
In the 18 months that I have been working on line I have made a total of maybe $300 in that time frame, give or take. you know who I blame for that?.. ME… I have been lazy, I have been Complacent, I have been unmotivated, and I have downright disappointed those that care about me in this industry because of my lack of production. But… despite all of that, despite all of my failures, I keep going, I keep surfing, I refuse to give up, because I know that I am into something that eventually the light bulb will go off, I will come out of my comfort zone and this whole thing will take off. But the key to all of this is I haven’t whined or complained that I am not being given the “Secret” that I haven’t made a lot of money or that “this thing doesn’t work”. I haven’t said any of that or pointed fingers at anyone other than myself. I am responsible for my own actions and I am responsible, in this case, in my lack of action. So as you see I know of what I speak, cause I have lived it. I see what my approach has done for me, and only I can change that. I don’t expect handouts from anyone, I don’t expect to be given anything that I haven’t earned, and I certainly don’t blame TimTech for my failures in this business.
So instead of complaining to a business owner that they aren’t giving you what you think you are entitled to… Try going out and earning it. Get in the game, or ride the bench…its up to you. I plan on using that as my mantra going forward.
