Model What Works And Explode Your Business
Something that I have not only noticed, but also done myself, is making things way too complicated when it comes to running an online business.
Many marketers and entrepreneurs seem to go rogue and try to reinvent the wheel.
Chances are, you are making things way harder on yourself by making one huge mistake. That mistake is not modeling what is already proven to work.
When I was a child, I wanted to be an NBA Basketball player.
Like every kid growing up in the 90's I wanted to be just like Michael Jordan.
I would record Chicago Bulls Basketball games on VHS tape (wow I feel old now). Then I would watch the game over and over again and study every step that Michael Jordan would take.

Of course after that, I would grab my ball, run to the park and practice everything that I remembered from the recording... Tongue out and everything.
It Paid Off!
Just from taking that little step and basically copying Michael Jordan and the moves he made, seriously raised my basketball game.
I scored more points...
Had more assists...
People enjoyed watching the flash and pizzazz that I played with!
Just Model What Works
There are a lot of people who are successful at making money online. There are even more that are not and have no success at all...
What separates the two?
From everyone that I have talked to who is successful online they all had the same thing to say,
Don't try to re-invent the wheel... Just model what already works!
A problem that a lot of beginners (and even some amateurs have) is that they try to re-invent the wheel when it comes to making money online.
I can almost guarantee you, if you try to re-invent the wheel, you will fail online...
Sorry, that was harsh... but true.
How To Model What Works
The first step that every big successful marketer will tell you is that you need to start your own blog.
I have paid some big money to get into big name coaching programs, and every single one of them tell you to start a blog first.
You may be asking yourself...
Why a blog?
Isn't that a lot of work?
I don't know what to write about...
Let me give you a little insight about a blog.
A blog is your own personal space. Think of it as your online home. It gives you a platform to talk about different things, build an audience and following, and you can use it to promote different products and services.
Of course it is a lot of work... But if you are scared of a little work, then online or affiliate marketing is NOT for you.
It's like being a boxer who doesn't want to get punched in the face...
Model What Works - Affiliate Marketing
The fastest way to become successful is to do what big successful marketers are doing.
These days, in the age of Photoshop, it's a little harder to find who is really doing well, and who is just blowing smoke.
But if you pay attention, it becomes clear pretty quickly.
In Affiliate Marketing, it's guys like Michael Cheney, John Thornhill, Omar Martin, Ben Martin, Dean Holland... The list goes on and on.
Find these guys and watch them... Stalk them without being creepy or weird.
See what they are doing, and then model it to fit your own business.
Create A Swipe File
If you are an Affiliate Marketer, and promoting other people's products, then you know that having an email list and sending them promotional emails is a must!
By creating a "swipe file" this can make your life much easier.
A swipe file is basically a file (or a folder in your email) that has promotions from big name marketers that you can "model" for your own affiliate promotions.
Keyword... MODEL NOT COPY, that is plagiarism and illegal.
But you can use their emails to get ideas, tone, the way they talk, and what they write about... and then write things in your own words.
Learning how to write high converting emails is one of the hardest things to do. If you need help, there are two courses that I highly recommend and suggest you check out...
I own and use both and they have really helped me with my emailing skills
Model What Works - The Easiest Way Ever...
Even doing everything right, it still takes a lot of time and hard work to be a successful online or affiliate marketer.
There is something that you can do that almost guarantees your success online, and shortcuts your way to big paydays.
Use someone else's business entirely.
