It’s not often the ol’ Kenster comes clean about my internet marketing gaffes.
In my mind, this is actually quite embarrassing.
But it’s important that you know this:
I have a friend in the online space who has been blogging consistently for over 9 years and now pulls in a steady coupla’ million smackeroos a year.
Yes, several million dollars.
That’s the truth.
Sure, he worked hard.
Now he works part-time…goes out to lunch, enjoys his family..you know…living the dream.
I know this for a fact because I just had lunch with him. He just bought a Porsche SUV.
I know, you’re thinking ‘hey…I thought YOU had something to admit Ken!!’
I do. Patience young one…
See, I bought my domain name, kennethholland.com in 2000 (go look it up) and in 2005 I heard about this software that made running websites easier.
It’s called WordPress.
Yes, WordPress the blogging platform.
So I installed it and in 2005 I had my own blog.
I then proceeded to start it, stop it, start it…
delete the posts and then I would start again.
One of the dumbest things I’ve done in my professional career.
Go back to my friend above…
When he started his it was not even about internet marketing. He wrote about cars he liked, what he had for dinner…a lifestyle blog of sorts.
what it did was BRAND him over time.
Then he migrated to online sales and affiliate strategies and started to make money.
A LOT of money…that continues to this very
MY mistake was not sticking with it…even part-time. I would be so much father along now if I had just stayed with it.
You gotta be consistent in whatever you do.
That’s how people become successful.
The media loves to portray the ‘overnight sensation’.
It plays better for the masses…who, for the most part have the attention span of a gnat.
Don’t fall for it.
The vast majority of success in our society comes from simple, consistent action.
Blogging consistently can give you that.
