3 Ways to Get Focused with Your Internet Marketing Business Internet marketing can be a challenge if you don’t have focus and follow through. Sticking with a plan long enough to see results is a key to having success with any internet marketing business model. Far too many people give it a incomplete try and then blame the person who created the program. That’s like eating nothing but fast food and blaming McDonald’s for making you fat. You get to choose what to eat, and if your choice makes you fat…it’s your fault. In the same vein, you get to choose how you run your business and if you put off work, jump from plan to plan or expect things to happen overnight, it’s your fault. If you’re serious about getting focused on your Internet marketing business and making it work for you, start using the following seven habits. They will make a huge difference in your level of success. 1. Make a promise to yourself and mark it on the calendar.

Get out your calendar right now and mark down the date 90 days from today. Promise yourself that for the next three months you won’t buy any new IM books, courses or programs. You won’t spend time reading about a new money making method in a forum. You’ll choose one plan and stick with it for those entire 90 days. Most people don’t make it past two weeks with any given IM system, so going 90 days may be a big challenge. You’ll see what real focus can produce at the end of these three months.

2. Start unsubscribing from Internet marketing newsletters and lists.

If you want to maintain clear focus on your plan, you need to start removing all of the “noise” from your inbox. When you’re being bombarded on a daily basis with marketing messages from the dozens of lists you’ve signed up to, you’re bound to get distracted. Be sure to stay focused on your plan by unsubscribing from all of those unnecessary lists. If missing out on all that “important” information is going to drive you nuts, you can always create an e-mail folder and filter everything into it for safekeeping.

3. Focus your daily schedule to get more done.

When you start to work on your Internet marketing business, you’ll realize what a mixed blessing the Internet is. One on hand, you have access to starting a low investment, highly profitable business. However, on the other hand, there are a myriad of distractions to keep you

from your purpose. Online forums, social networking platforms and just plain distracting sites can prevent you from getting any work done. When you sit down in the morning, or whenever you are working on your online business, get a clear list of tasks that need to be done that day to move your business forward. Don’t check your e-mail, visit a forum or login to Facebook until you get those things done. In just a short period of time you’ll realize that you get a lot more done if you push aside the distractions and just work on your business when you’re supposed to.
