The Ultimate Success Formula has only four steps. That is it. If you want to succeed at anything in life you just follow these four simple steps. Step 3 is to evaluate the results you have experienced and make any changes if needed. With this post I am evaluating my results with the solo ad business and sharing the lessons I have learned.
April 8th was my 51st birthday. When I was young I always dreamed that I would be able to retire from the ratrace by the time I was 50 years old. So turning 51 was a very, very difficult day because I knew that I had let my life long dream slip away. That was enough to give me motivation to work my butt off during the entire month to make sure that I am not still working in the ratrace by the time my 52nd birthday rolls around. That hard work has paid off as I earned 26% more online than I took home in my day job.
For the past ten days I have been heads down trying to build my online list. My goal is to grow a list big enough that I am able to make $100 per day. You can read about my results in my first week of building a list here. Several people that have accomplished this say they spend a half hour to an hour a day for an entire month before they are able to reach the $100 per day goal. I think they grossly underestimated the time they spent daily.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Well Monday I took my first step with solo ads by placing my first order for 100 clicks. Clicks is the term used to describe a solo ad. A vendor will sell ads with a guaranteed minimum number of clicks.
I spent most of yesterday reading over 120 pages of content from 3 different programs teaching solo ads. Wow, this is not going to be as easy as I thought it might be. Nobody provides the exact step-by-step methods that you need to get started with solo ads. Most leave something out and that something just happens to be something I am not terribly familiar with.
