5 Internet Marketing Questions Remain

Today marks the 1-Year Anniversary of InternetIndependence.com, but some internet marketing questions remain.

You can read the first post – about a scary family incident inspired me to put a deadline on one of my goals – here:

You’ll also get encouragement to set 3 big deadlines for your business that you MUST hit in 2012 if you want to create your own Internet Independence.

I want to thank you for being a reader, it means a lot

BUT…nothing impresses me more than action.

So to those who did take action in 2011, I salute you.

And to those who are new, make 2012 your year of ACTION.

Now, having gone through the huggy-feely stuff, let’s review a few of the toughest business questions anyone could ask you – although I doubt anyone ever will because they don’t want to make you feel bad.

These are the toughest, meanest, Grinchiest questions anyone could ask you at any time of the year, let alone at when you’re supposed to be full of New Year’s optimism.

But if you want to make more money online and put much nicer Christmas presents under the tree next year…

…then I recommend having a good long think about this:

1) Why do you deserve to make money on the Internet?

2) Why do you deserve traffic?

3) Why would anyone be your affiliate?

4) Why would a customer choose you over any of your competitors?

5) What have you done for anyone lately that someone isn’t already doing for them?

Like I said, not very nice questions.

But what matters is whether or not you have good answers for all of those questions.

ANY of those questions?

No?

Well then, boo hoo, Cindy Lou Internet Who, it’s going to be tough sledding for you in 2012.

After all, readers on the Internet aren’t just going to donate to your charity.

But they will GIVE you money in exchange for VALUE. And they’ll give you more money in exchange for extreme value.

Wow, thanks Mr. Grinch. What a lovely, optimistic message to start the new year *sarcasm*.

But here’s the harsh truth…

It’s up to you, dear reader, to find GREAT answers to those questions. It’s the only way to succeed.

And that should be your first big ACTION step of 2012.

Then we can get rocking on the rest of your plan,

PS – If you didn’t like today’s message, don’t worry, I’ve got another edition of the Nicky Porter Chronicles coming up later this week…and 3 steps to writing really effective emails tomorrow.

  • I’ve taken your 5 questions and printed them. They are now tacked to my Vision Wall. Not that I can’t already answer a few of them reasonably, but I think I want BETTER answers to them ALL in 2012…

    Thanks Craig. And a very Happy New Year to you!
