I was just reading an article by former Survivor winner Austin McCarty, and he gave some great tips on what it takes to win.
He said: “First it takes skill. You must be smart, socially adept, and able-bodied to win. Then it takes the ability to harness those skills. Any Survivor fan knows that countless capable contestants have seen their torches snuffed due to poor thinking, massive social blunders, and/or key physical failures. It is here that some contestants—but not many—are eliminated.”
If you want to “survive” in your online business, there are three important skills you need:
Skill #1: The Ability to Sell
The most important skill you need is the ability to sell. This skill is number one. If you can’t sell, you’re going to have a hard time making any money online.
Most people don’t like to sell. But this is a universal principle—If you want to do well in business, you need to know how to sell.
To sell in business, you’re persuasively describing the benefits, and talking them into paying you for your products and/or services.
Skill #2: The Ability to Write Sales Copy
Copywriting is the ability to communicate in writing and persuade someone to take action.
Good copy raises the awareness of your product to your target market. It shows how your product stands out from all the other competition. It quickly grabs a person and paints a vivid picture how your product will make their life better. And to overcome their objections, you guarantee they’ll be 100% satisfied—or their money back.
You should also try to write as if you were meeting someone for the first time. Pretend you have 30 seconds to talk your new friend into buying into your online marketing company. The write down what you would say to sell them.
Skill #3: Hire the Right People
If you want to blow this up really big, there’s absolutely no way you’re ever going to do it on your own.
When you hire a few key people to create an effective team, it can have a dramatic effect on your organization’s growth.
Once you build up the right team, it will help you scale to doing millions of dollars per year, tens of millions, even over a hundred million dollars per year.
And if you’re a beginner, or a “rookie” in the online marketing business, there are 21 simple steps you need to take before you can become an online millionaire.
For example, 22-year-old Steven Bransfield used these 21 steps to go from zero to over a million in less than two years.
In fact, he just published a new video explaining step-by-step exactly how he did it.
