So I’ve been away from my blog for over a month now, well actually I’ve been away from my computer for that long too – and as ‘relaxing’ as it was, the continued stress over what I was leaving behind had me wondering whether the break was worth it.
Apart from the 6000+ emails that welcomed me home, the most interesting thing was the fact that those emails (spam aside) looked exactly the same as the ones I used to get when I first started this online endeavour 2 years ago…
I coined the phrase ‘GroundBlog Day’ once – referencing the fact that the make money online world never really changed. Sure the characters were constantly evolving but the general story line was much the same – but that’s OK, I mean who am I to sit and judge when realistically I too played a role in this incessant rambling we call blogging. There is only so much one can talk about when it comes to making money online so it is only fair to assume that this groundblog day will continue…until death do us part.
And it’s perfectly OK if you ask me. Anyone who says otherwise is either negative at heart or has their head shoved so firmly up their own ‘blog’ that they have lost sight of what it’s all about….
What is it all about?
The answer to that is as individual as the players in the game, but for me it’s about refocusing on what is important and sharing what works.
I think the thing that frustrates me most – and this relates back to the 6000 or so emails I had waiting for me – is that there are still so many people trying to make money promoting systems when they themselves are not actually making ANY money from said ‘system’. Granted this is how the bigger players have always made their fortunes, but it’s about time someone pulled back the curtain and revealed the wizard for what he really is.
Get Back to Basics!
You want to make money online? Then stop trying to do a million things at once and jumping on every bandwagon that drives past!!
Make money from Facebook, No! Make money from Twitter, no wait – LinkedIn is where it’s at. What – no, how about CPA and offline marketing – or craigslist – or eBay, or dare I say it, Blogging.
And this is why 2012 is the year to Build Rank and Profit.
Why? Because it’s simple (kinda) and it works!
How do I know? Because while I was tending to family matters and taking a holiday I earned a passive income of over $4000 from my niche websites.
I did not make $13,754 in 2 weeks, nor did I make that money in the first year of being online. The fact is it took A LOT of work , and a crapload more trial and error.
I am just getting back into the swing of things and putting the finishing touches on my Build Rank Profit membership site, a site that will provide you with all of the knowledge I have about making money online and a site that will NOT try and promote 3000 different systems to help you get there.
A New Direction.
I suppose this has helped me define what 2012 is all about and in so doing has shaped the future direction of AlexWhalley.com
Last year I blogged a lot about – well everything really, and although I will continue to share what I learn through this medium simply because I enjoy writing, this year it will be a lot more focused.
If it’s not related to either Building, Ranking or Profiting from niche websites then there’s a good chance it won’t make it onto these pages. This means a lot less guest posts (sorry guys) and it also means I can focus on what is important – that being to teach you what I know works and not to waffle on about … well, everything else. I’ll leave that to the new players entering the game because as I mentioned before – Groundblog day will forever be a part of the making money online scene and I’ve already had a turn at playing a part
So Happy New Year to all of you and may 2012 be your year to Build Rank and Profit!
Sincerely, Alex Whalley
