Where Do We Go From Here?

August 13th, 2009 by Rob Willis Leave a reply »

It has been a week since my last post, which is not a good thing, considering regular blog updates bring in the traffic.

Knowing what to write is usually the biggest hurdle most newbies face. But as I have found that as you start to write about anything, the subject ideas will start to flow.

In saying this, I have been very busy with the old 9 to 5 JOB thing that most of us want to escape, plus my obligations to the government (ie Getting some Tax stuff done). That is one of the downsides to working for yourself.

But that is enough of excuses…

I have also been struggling with a couple of mental demons that have been haunting me… It is so easy to look at how well someone else is going, and then start thinking, “Why is my list not growing?” or “Why am I not making a few sales?”

Welcome to the world of Internet Marketing!!!

Much of the time, it comes down to the amount of work you put in. How much time are you spending in the forums? When did you post your last blog post? or write an article?

I know first hand the balancing act we have with our full time jobs, then coming home to spend time with our families and loved ones. And of course after a hard day we simply want to chill out. I suppose that is why someone invented the Television…. (I have also heard this called the Electronic Income Reducer.)

I am also guilty of sitting in front of the Idiot box, but we need to extract ourselves from our habits and sit down instead, in front of our computers and write a few thoughts in our blogs, or start interacting with others in the forums, Twitter, or Facebook. (Trust me your family who is sitting in front of the TV will not miss you…)

You could say, much of what we are trying to achieve comes down to a matter of priorities. Don’t get me wrong, your family is your highest priority, however, if they simply want to chill out in front of the idiot box, then take some time out and start composing an article, or do some keyword research. Simply put, just do something that will help move you forward.

This would suggest that you know where you want to be in 5 years time…. Have you set your long term goals? Do you know what it is that you want to achieve with all of this Internet marketing stuff??

A clear, well defined goal, should be your primary focus! You need to know where you are going before you can get there. Once you have your goal, you can focus on this and be able to ignore the distractions that inevitably come our way.

I would like to spend a lot more time on Goal setting, and over the course of the next couple of weeks I am going to put together a Goals Program that I would like to share with you. This program will be derived from things I have learnt from the likes of Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale, Brian Tracy, and Zig Ziglar, to mention a few.

This post has deviated a little from when I started it, but I hope you have been able to keep up with my train of thought as I write this.

To Your Success….

    The problem with most people and most business opportunities is they require lots of effort,lots of time, and money to promote. And most people either don’t have it or aren’t interested in putting in the required time, energy, or effort required to build,their business. That and they don’t really treat it as a business.

    • Rob Willis says:


      I know what you are talking about.

      Some people need to understand that Internet Marketing is a business, and as such you need to work on it.

      The more you put into it, the more you will get out.

      Thanks for your input.

    Hi Rob,

    I know exactly how you feel. Looking at the traffic statistics on Google Analytics can be a real downer.

    I’ve been away on vacation and my traffic dropped back to zero.

    But I’m trying to turn this negative into a positive by recording a case study showing that if I blog regularly and review other students blogs, the traffic returns.

    It is a long haul though and not easy to fit in the kids homework.

    Keep going though.

    Oh … If your looking for things to blog about, have a look at Google’s new Wonder Wheel that appears in the search engine.

    Type in a search term and the Wonder Wheel gives you all sorts of alternatives which can give inspiration.

    Keep in touch,

      Thank’s John.

      I came across Googles Wonder Wheel a couple of weeks ago. Great tool.
      I also understand Youtube are using it on their site also.

      Much of our life is about priorities, and unfortunatly, many of us have them all screwed up.

      We need to prioritize & schedule our time.
