What A Lizard Taught Me About Internet Marketing

August 1st, 2009 by Rob Willis Leave a reply »

LizardToday, while out on a walk, I paused for a few minutes to “converse” with a lizard. I noticed the tiny lizard (less than 6 inches long) sitting in a pile of branches on the side of the trail that I frequently walk. As I moved closer, the lizard looked up at me… as if to say “I see you but realize that you are no threat.” I said out loud, you’re a wise creature, and I suspect that God put you here to teach me a lesson. “Watch and learn” the lizard said. So, I sat down less than a foot from the lizard and he continued to teach me.

The lizard slowly inched forward, taking two steps at the most, towards some target that I didn’t notice. Periodically he’d glance over at me with one of his eyes to make sure I was still watching. After about 15 minutes of this, he lunged forward and grabbed a winged insect.  I’m not sure what it was though it looked akin to a grasshopper. The lizard slowly swallowed his lunch whole, then said to me, “Did you get it?” Shaking my head, I said “No.”

The lizard said, “Most of you internet marketers teach people to take massive action, and that that is  the secret to success. Not everyone can take massive action for various reasons, and so you need an answer for those people too.” As I reflected upon the lizard’s message, I understood. This tiny creature was incapable of soaring like an eagle, or even traveling many miles in a day.  I suspect that traveling even 1 mile would exhaust it.

The lizard taught me that, for some people, the key is NOT massive action, but consistently taking just 1 or 2 steps at a time – making sure that the steps are in the right direction. That lizard taught me that for many people, the key wasn’t making $1000 per day, but making just $100 per day. After all, that’s $3000 per month, and will get many people over the hump.

That lizard taught me that many people don’t even WANT to make $10,000 per month. They just want to help with the mortgage or car payment, and maybe save up for a college fund. The lizard sensed that I understood. At least I convinced myself that he did.  I thanked my worthy teach, got up and finished off my walk. As I arrived back at my home, I realized that now more than ever, it’s my job get people to read the ebook that I helped co-author along with 18 others. That ebook is titled “20 Ways To Make $100 Per Day Online” and teaches exactly that.

The ebook teaches what the authors of the various chapters are doing to make a comfortable living online, working no more than 1-2 hours per day. The ebook also has an affiliate program that pays 100% commission. You purchase the inexpensive ebook, then on the download page you are allowed to register for the affiliate program.  Then you help to tell others about this amazing ebook. You can even use this article.   When your customers buy this amazing ebook, the payment goes directly to your Paypal account, and they are redirected to a download page on our site where they download the pdf ebook.

Life teaches us many lessons – if we are paying attention, and ready to learn those lessons. Today, I was ready to learn from a lizard.  Are you ready to learn how to overcome this recession and get your internet business moving forward?

  1. Hi Rob,

    An excellent analogy that budding internet marketers should take on board.

    You simply can’t do it all at once.

    The secret is to do something every day toward the direction of your main goals.

    And the best way to do that, is to plan each day in advance and work your way through what you want to achieve for the day.

    This process will gradually build a nd build.

    That really is a great post. If more people would realize that taking small steps toward your goal every day is the best plan of action I think you would see a lot more success stories.
