In 5 Years, You May Regret It
If you had gone to Costa Rica 15 years ago, and bought some cheap land there, before there was any major development going on, you might be very rich today. Why? Simply because
it was an incredible timing.
These kinds of opportunities are not always easy to see. But there’s one right now, that is happening right before your eyes. It’s so big, and it’s so obvious, that you may not even be seeing it.
I’m talking about the biggest revolution ever to occur in the information age: the Internet.
While I wasn’t involved in the very early days of the Internet, I built my first website in 1998, so almost 10 years ago, back when most people you met didn’t have an e-mail address.
And I’ve been using the Internet every since to make a living doing what I love.
In the past 3 years, my online business has really taken off, and now I wouldn’t consider any other option, as I really enjoy the freedom it brings.
Nowadays, it’s no longer a secret that you can be very successful selling information on the Internet. It seems that every other person you meet in a coffee shop with their laptop is “working on their website.”
A lot of people have a hard time to picture themselves, completely successful, earning as much as they’d like to just with a website.
But many of them eventually get their act together and create a successful online business.
Having your own successful website, with a mailing list (your audience) that enjoys what you do, and that purchases product after product your offer – is a really great thing to have. It’s so valuable that it’s like owning a restaurant on a busy corner in New York City. We call them:
very good location.
Having your own website that gets traffic, builds your mailing list and brings you profit is a similar type of “very good location” deal. You have your own piece of virtual real estate, but online.
But what happens when a lot of people are trying to do the same thing? It’s competition and market-saturation. As emerging economies such as India and China get more and more into the Internet, you’ll find many very smart, extremely “hungry” young people in these countries who will be perfectly motivated to work 100 hours a week in order to make $500 a month on the Internet.
These people will reach into every possible market (including raw foods and health) and create all kinds of site to grab a hold of that traffic.
And at the same time, more and more people like you will wake up and realize, “I got to start my own website too!”
And many people like me will be teaching them how to do it successfully.
What I think will happen is that within 5 years, it’s going to be much more difficult to start an online business and make a living doing what you love that way. It will require a lot more work and skills and only the best will survive.
Only the *very best*.
Right now, it’s still “almost too easy” to earn a living online.
1- You find a topic
2- You start a simple site (as I will describe how to do in my upcoming course)
3- You create your own mailing list (your audience)
4- You send relevant offers to your audience
Even in the future, the process will always be the same. But the difference is that it’s going to be a lot more difficult to get attraction to your site, and build your list, while so many other people are trying to do the same.
Don’t fool yourself: the Internet is one of the biggest revolutions in the world.
I believe that now is a *very good time* to get onboard.
What you will build this year will (such as your website, your online presence and your mailing list) will be worth *so much* in five years when so many people will be competing.
Unless you want to slap your head in five years and think to yourself, “What was I thinking” for missing the boat, I would suggest to make sure that this year you work at building your own site, your own mailing list, and your own online business in a field that interests you.
