Why You Should Stop Following a Blogging System
There’s always something great happening in ClickBank marketplace. Or if you follow enough internet marketing gurus out there to be aware of the trends of hot selling information products.
Almost always, a product that promises step by step system will sell much better than others which are merely informational or conceptual.
The reason is obvious. People are looking for a faster, predictable, and easy way to get to where they want from where they are right now. A blogging system, for instance, marketers usually describes the product as something people could do and immediately get traffic and money flowing in, as if blogging is a kind of magic.
People fall into such things repeatedly. I admit it is hard to avoid these products. They are shiny objects that grab attention more than whatever you are doing right now. Inside every one of us, we still hope that there is such system.
“What if this new system is different?” Sometimes I still find myself asking this question. The only way to stop this thought is to avoid reading any offer. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the latest buzz or hottest product in the market. Most of the time, you will not miss a bit. And a better product will be there when you need it.
Back to the blogging system. A system, as I mentioned above, gives hope. It is seen as a faster, easier and predictable way to produce results.
If you think about it, it just isn’t what you want. Faster, easier and predictable are just that. They mean average. Predictable business is never outstanding.
That might be good enough for some newbies. What’s more important to them is speed. However, there is still nothing as a shortcut.
You can follow blogging advice to avoid mistakes. Learning from others are in a way the shortcut to your own success. But that doesn’t mean you will not find roadblocks. Otherwise all people in the world will be successful and happy right now.
What separates the winners from losers is persistence. Winners keep going. They see roadblocks as part of the process. Successful bloggers either go around the blocks, or go through them. Stopping never is an option.
I didn’t mean that blogging e-books are useless. Often they contain some good advices that will help you at some point in the process. However, nothing is instant nor easy, especially if you don’t have any experience at all.
Gradual learning is necessary. But it isn’t as hard as you think either.
The faster you learn about this, the better. Spend less time on looking for more offers. There are a lot of ways to build a business online. You don’t need to know everything to do it. Chances are, you already know enough.
So, stop seeking and start doing, will you?
