Please note that this post is really just a bit of fun but I suppose it can be taken seriously if you want to take things to the next level. Just have a read and see if you have made it past the crucial level, if not you know what to do.
Level 1: You have absolutely no idea how to make money online, in fact you are so sceptical you think it can’t really be done and the only people who make money online are scammers.
Level 2: Curious, you start to search ‘make money online’ and you can’t believe how much info is out there. Hmm, maybe there is something in this make money online game after all.
Level 3: You buy your first ‘make money’ product and are devastated when you can’t understand a thing the product is talking about. You need to learn more.
Level 4: In order to learn more you need to research and you find that most of your research involves signing up for newsletters and offers, browsing forums and searching Google. You end up buying a few more products that promise easy online riches.
Level 5: Wow, this is harder than you thought. The last product I bought said this would be easy but it isn’t. Hmm, maybe the next product will help me. All the time you are learning but you never really do anything with the information that you learn.
STOP! If you are at this level you are going nowhere, you need to make it to level 6 fast as at the moment you are just bouncing between levels 4-5
Level 6: Luckily you have been on John Thornhill’s mailing list and this blog post has suddenly made you realise that you simply must be creating your own products to generate income and build a list. So you have a go and you find it’s actually not that difficult once you get going.
Level 7: Wow, people are buying my product, people are buying my product. I can’t believe it, and look at how many people are signing up for my mailing list
Level 8: You rinse and repeat levels 6 and 7 (sure beats rinsing and repeating levels 4 and 5) and find you make even more money from your second product than you did your first. You ask yourself is it really as easy as this?
Level 9: Now you ‘get it’ you simply keep pumping out new products, keep building your lists and keep providing value to your subscribers, nothing too drastic, just 4-6 new products a year and each new launch is more successful than the last. You’ve made it; you phone your boss and tell him to stick his job where the sun doesn’t shine.
Level 10: You now start to live the life you dreamed of, you have more time to spend doing what you love most, living life and spending time with your loved ones. You go to work when you want and work the hours that suit you. Your friends who doubted you can’t believe what you have achieved, but at the same time they can’t believe they can do it, this is because they are still at level one, but luckily you left that level a long time ago.
Never ever forget that the real money is in creating your own products and services. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise…
