To Dream, To Live

December 26, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

dream and live

“When you cease to dream you cease to live.”Malcolm Forbes, publisher of Forbes magazine.

Many people in business find it hard to see forward or see any room for advancement in the position that they are in. Dreaming of where you may be in business or seeing some type of financial freedom in your future is an excellent motivator to work hard. While it is good to enjoy some form of financial security and to continue working to make sure that you can maintain your lifestyle, seeing something in the future is an even bigger motivator.

Be Motivated at Work

For those who are stuck in positions where there is no hope for advancement or where there isn’t much of a future freedom to dream about in place, it can be very difficult to enjoy your job as well as your life. We spend a lot of time at our jobs and a lot of time earning money before we retire. It’s very important to enjoy these working hours just as we enjoy the time that we have off. While work will probably always feel a bit like work there are some steps you can take to give yourself hope and to really start to enjoy and feel motivated at work.

If you are in a position where you feel absolutely stuck, with no room for advancement it may be a good idea to look to your options. Freedom is not something that is impossible in the working world. Many people are living an laptop lifestyle and working from home or traveling the world, enjoying freedom while still being able to earn money and do something that is enjoyable. Online freelancers, businesses and more can run from a home office today or from anywhere in the world. In this exciting age that we live in the dream of having more freedom in the workplace is more attainable than ever before. What’s holding you back?

Be A Fortune

December 19, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

fortune

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”Jim Rohn, an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.

Regardless of the skills that you may have picked up at school, nothing will prepare you for the working world where the occupation that you are entering into. No matter the industry that you are going into, whether you are working for a company or starting your own business, the lessons that you learn as you research and train for that business will be the fundamentals that stick with you over your formal schooling. Formal education is a great way that you can open the door to an excellent business opportunity as well as gain the fundamentals that you will need to run a business and be successful in the corporate world. However, formal education does not appropriately prepare us to jump headlong into the business world and be able to keep up with our competitors who have years of experience. Having a diploma and credentials is a great way that you can eventually find yourself in a job, but it is ultimately your skills that will allow you to keep that job.

Learning skills yourself

Self-education is crucial to obtaining freedom in your life. Knowing something different from another person, or constantly learning new skills is a great way that you can venture out as an entrepreneur and have more marketable skills when working for a company. As you expand on your own skills you become aware of more markets and opportunities and this can help you on your way to financial freedom. With more opportunities available to you you can select from the most lucrative of these opportunities as well as have multiple businesses on the go at once. For entrepreneurs, expansion into new markets is absolutely required to see fantastic results in sales and increased freedoms.

Today, with Internet lifestyle access to these new skills and new knowledge is easier to come by than ever before. Many universities are offering up their programs online for free and the speed that you can find information and learn new skills can be done faster than ever before. Remember that formal education can be important, but it is the effort you take at self-education that will eventually make you a fortune.

The Internet Lifestyle – Spend Your Life In Your Own Way

December 12, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

success in life

 “There is only one success- to be able to spend your life in your own way.” – Christopher Morley, an American journalist, novelist, essayist and poet.

Many in the business world would attribute success with working their way up the corporate ladder to eventually hold the top position. This can take real work and employee will have to give up a wide array of their own freedoms as well as impress anyone that might be ahead of them for the job. While we can define success as someone who has obtained financial security, it’s ultimately someone that has control of their time as well as their money that has achieved real success.

Freedom in the Workplace

So many people in the corporate world have almost zero hours to spend doing what they enjoy. Instead they are stuck constantly working wherever they may be. Becoming an entrepreneur or a freelancer is an excellent way that you can escape the shackles of the traditional work patterns and set your own schedule. Freelancing in entrepreneurship is truly the ultimate freedom in the workplace because you are your own boss and you can spend your life your own way.

Flexible Jobs with an Internet Connection

Freelancers and entrepreneurs are able to work anywhere that there is an active Internet connection and they have the materials that they need for their projects. This internet lifestyle is extremely rewarding and very flexible. Many people involved in these types of online businesses are able to work from the beach, work at home and work without ever having to see an office environment ever again. With this enormous freedom it can be difficult to ever go back into the corporate world, especially if an entrepreneur or freelancer is able to achieve some type of financial security in their work.

It can take time to reach a stage where an entrepreneur can become self-sufficient and truly be their own boss. Taking the risks and moving on an idea that you might have could be extremely profitable to you in the future as well as a contributing factor to turning you into an overall success no matter how you define the word.

One of the best ways to find your freedom and live your life on your terms if to find a mentor or a proven online business model you can replicate; wash, rinse and repeat. More of that in another post…

Catch the Trade Winds in Your Sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

December 5, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

Mark Twain

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”Mark Twain, American author and humorist.

The truth is, life is pretty short. We don’t have a lot of time to waste while we’re here and unfortunately we can end up spending quite a lot of it working. The unfortunate byproduct of life is that it gets expensive and as a result we need to maintain our jobs in order to have financial freedom. The more expensive that life gets however, the more that we have to work and the less time that we have. This is the problem that plagues us all but luckily there is a solution…

Within the past decade it has become much easier to work from home and become your own boss. There are millions of opportunities online to make money as well as some fantastic opportunities that are available for people who are interested in marketing and selling products online. Many people are content to look back on the last 20 years at jobs that they enjoy doing even if it is for companies, but some people may not have the same positive thoughts towards their occupation. For those people, it may be time to cast off and start creating your own opportunities.

Discover the Internet Lifestyle

With a bit of research and some creativity you can quickly discover that there is an entire Internet lifestyle available with the freedom that you may have always wanted. Networks of freelancers, online business people, and Internet marketers all come together to work online and give up the traditional 9 to 5. Being your own boss can be extremely rewarding but it is important to test the waters first before you jump in with both feet. Spend some time doing research and creating some part-time opportunities before you give up the financial security that you received that your current occupation. When you feel as though you can make it on your own, go for it and experience the freedom that you deserve.

Imagination Will Take You Everywhere

November 28, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

Logic Will Get You From A To B. Imagination Will Take You Everywhere.

Imagination - Albert Einstein

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics.

After nearly three years of living in Bangkok, tomorrow we will head to one of the many islands to view places to live. Instead of living in the city and having mini breaks in neighboring countries and islands we plan to set up a base on an island and have mini breaks in the city. Working online allows me the freedom to really live and create my perfect lifestyle.

Staying with the company and working is another example of a path that will get you from A to B. While working with the same company may allot you some extra opportunities and perceived freedoms, it’s ultimately something that you create for yourself and work at that will take you far beyond anything that a company could offer.

Grow your Skills

It’s very important to remember that everyone has a sense of creativity and marketable skills. Today more than ever, it is far easier to start with an idea and to grow it into an Internet lifestyle or business that you can run for yourself. Even something as simple as having an idea is enough to get started with the business and begin your success. With a large market of international freelancers, each with their own individual skills to bring to the table there is literally boundless talent available to you online to start up your business or to deliver services to clients online. I regularly employ the services of writers, programmers, graphic designers, art directors, translators, videographers, cartoonists, social media managers, SEO services, proof readers, researchers and a lots more. Are these skills you have or could learn to start to develop a freedom freelance lifestyle of your own?

Give your Imagination a Chance

Working behind a desk at a company can be extremely crippling to your imagination and can cause stress as well as an overall lack of flexibility in your life. Starting your own company, or working at your own business is an excellent way to gain an enormous amount of freedom when it comes to the workplace. Many people who have begun offering services in partnership with freelancers, or people who have become freelancers themselves are now able to work from anywhere in the world. With just a little bit of imagination and commitment you could potentially be working on a beach somewhere instead of behind a desk each day. It’s surprising where you imagination will take you when you let it!

If you are content to continue on your path from A to B, you will be rewarded with little in the way of any real financial security and overall lack of freedom and flexibility. If you are interested in doing a bit of work and helping your imagination expand, consider trying the Internet lifestyle for yourself. Freelance.com is a good place to start.

Is It Hard to Learn Thai Language?

November 21, 2013 in Amazing Thailand, Guest Posts by Perry

Learning Thai LanguageI’ve been living in Thailand since 2011 and when I catch up with old friends and acquaintances from back home, one of the first questions they ask is “So, do you speak Thai?” I usually reply “Phom phut passa Thai nid noi”, which is usually enough to impress them and move along to another subject. The truth is, I’m a poor Thai language speaker. I have a stock of questions and answers but I’m embarrassed to say, living here as long as I have, I should know a lot more and be a pretty fluid conversationalist by now.

I went to a Thai language school in Bangkok for a year and learned the basics of reading, writing and speaking but never progressed like I should. I think this was largely down to the classroom dynamic (going back to school and sitting behind a desk) and the size of the classes (to large). When I completed my year, I never went back. This got me thinking why some people excel at learning new languages and some, like me fail miserably. I asked a few Thai language teachers this question “What are the biggest obstacles people face when they try to learn a new language like Thai and how can they be overcome?” Below are some of the replies:

Robert Greene

Robert GreeneI would say that the biggest obstacle for most people is the belief about whether or not they can actually learn a new language. You have to keep in mind that for most people, when they are picking up a language such as Thai, more often than not it’s the first time they’re attempting to learn a language.

By that I don’t mean they’re mute, but that we’re so young when we pick up our native, mother language that it’s never something we really have to practice or think about. We just realise that we can speak the language. It’s good to surround yourself with success stories of other people who have been able to make it. Once you have the belief that it’s possible, then you’re more be more likely to actively seek ways to learn the language and continue pushing yourself to learn.

Baby steps.

Mai Rongsiaw

Mai the Thai TeacherThe biggest obstacles people face or believe they are facing is “I’m too old to learn”

This concern somewhat true and fault.

True: the fact is our learning ability is gradually decrease with age, there is no argue about it. Our physical appearance is telling us so.

Fault : As far as my 7 years of teaching Thai as a foreign language tell me that “you are never too old to learn” (if you put all you’ve got and work twice harder than younger people).

Countless of students under 30s have started to learn Thai and end up giving up for many reason eg. it’s not for me, I’m too busy, I work 2 jobs or I didn’t want to take it seriously in the first place.

On the other hand, my students you are above 60s set up his goal to retire in Thailand in 1 year. They are working 10 times harder. Learning Thai is their first or second job.

To compare between 2 kinds of students, it all come down to the end at determination and encouragement . Determination come from within and encouragement come from people around you, including your Thai teacher. 🙂

Orrawee Naksuwan1. The first thing is to try and “forget” your language and “pick up” the new system. This can be quite difficult, but a serious learner should make the effort.  In other words, try to think in the new language. It will help immensely.
2.  Try to listen to the sounds of the language closely – this is especially important in Thai which is a tonal language. The way to succeed here is to listen, then speak and practice as much as possible.
3.  Finally you should study from the best source you can find. Ideally a language tutor is the best. It is difficult to learn from books alone and you don’t want to learn something incorrectly. Then it is more difficult to get it right.

The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It

November 21, 2013 in Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

future

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”Peter Drucker, American management consultant, educator, and author.

Businesses and advertisers are always looking for the next big trend. The great thing about working for yourself and launching a revolutionary product however, is that you have the freedom to dictate trends. So many startups and companies these days are producing promotional material well before they had even launched a product. Through social media it’s now possible to deliver up-to-the-minute updates and trends on new products and services almost as soon as they have been thought up. Crafting a trend may have been a little more difficult just a decade ago, but with the availability of social media and the number of startups that are using it, it can be truly amazing the amount of impact that a few short messages can have to a larger population.

Material for Online Marketing

When we think in terms of viral videos and advertising online, we can see that this type of promotional material isn’t always that expensive to produce. However there are some short video clips and advertisements which are viewed by thousands of people each and every day. These kinds of online trends have been created and have gone viral in some cases only just a few minutes after they were posted. While some advertisers will spend money and time doing research to figure out what the next trend is so that they can hop on board to market their products with it, they are forgetting that it’s ever important to be the trendsetter.

Part of working online and living the Internet lifestyle involves setting trends by creating them. As we set trends we can change the future and is advertisers it’s very important that new businesses are able to create creative promotional material that sets trends for their products and services. This level of creativity is a driving sales force that gets things done and puts small businesses on the path to financial freedom.

Are You Living Your Internet Marketing Lifestyle?

November 14, 2013 in Guest Posts, Internet Marketing Lifestyle by Perry

When meeting new people, the inevitable question soon pops up “What do you do?” This happened only last night in the Gold Coast Airport departure lounge when I was waiting to board a plane to Kuala Lumpa. I of course have many answers to this question depending on who’s asking, but for those who really want to know we often end up in a long discussion about the benefits of the Internet Lifestyle. Many of these people express to me that they to would love to have the freedom I dearly love and to live a laptop lifestyle but few take the action and make it happen. I really don’t know why, so I recently put the word out in the IM Lifestyle community and asked the question “What barriers deter people from living the Internet Marketing Lifestyle? The responses make interesting reading.

Here’s what some had to say:

Nathaniell Brenes – One More Cup of Coffee

Nathaniel BrenesNo doubt there’s lots of hype around the “Internet marketing lifestyle“, and there are many ways to get there. Some of them are practical, some of them not. Whatever path you choose to make money on the Internet or leverage online business to work from home, there are 3 common barriers I see to actually achieving ones goals.

1) Managing Expectations

Unfortunately there are lots of programs, books, videos, networks, blogs, websites and any other form of information out there that have promoted the idea that an Internet business can be automated. There are some parts of the business that give an illusion of automation, but very often there is a whole lot of hard work sitting behind the ‘system’ that is set in place.

And even then, most of what is done behind the scenes of a great Internet business is not automated. It’s outsourced. Simply said, you need to be WORKING on your business. If you are not, you need to hire someone to do it for you.

Money comes from customers, and customers want stuff. They want products, they want information, and they want to get their moneys worth. Someone has to deliver it.

The other huge misconception with expectations is how much and how fast you can make money. I honestly don’t know why people turn to the internet as a last resort to make money. I get emails almost weekly from folks saying that they don’t have a job, are in debt, have bills to pay, and need to start making money by the end of the month.

Sorry, but the Internet will not solve your money problems by the end of the month. Develop a 6 month plan, then revamp and look another year into the future. You can do a lot in a year. You can’t do jack in two weeks.

2) Independent Work

Another huge thing that’s holding people back from even starting their journey towards that glorious first internet payday is, well, not even getting started. Most of what you need to know about how to set up your business is available online, and available for free. It’s easier than ever to reach the experts, talk to them, ask them questions, and pick away at the huge bank of knowledge you’ll need to get things moving.

I recently wrote a review about a scammy product, warning folks to stay away from it. Within the body of the review I explained very clearly that this was not a product I recommended, but linked to legit ones where visitors could start their training. I like to related blog posts, and even outlined the basics of how I make money with my own blogs.

But I still get comments like these:Living the Internet Marketing Lifestyle

And when I receive these, it’s very obvious that they not only did not read the review in detail, they didn’t follow any links, and they didn’t read any of the other comments.

These visitors were looking for a simple answer. They want me to say, “Yes, here is the product. It’s free. And you will start making money by the end of the week. No previous skills necessary. Full automated, $5,000 per week.”

I can’t help you if you can’t even read the information that’s sitting in front of you.

3) Commitment

The biggest factor preventing internet entrepreneurs from realizing their dreams is commitment. Like anything else, it takes time to get your bearings and become good at what you do. As mentioned in the “manage expectations” topic from above, people set goals of weeks and months, when they should be setting goals of years and decades.

I see people make comments like, “I will try it for a month, and if it doesn’t work, I know it’s a scam”.

But how do you learn to play an instrument?

By that definition, guitars are a scam. Try for a month, and I guarantee you won’t be able to play anything well.

And foreign languages are a scam too. Try learning one for a few hours per day for 4 weeks and you will be seriously disappointed.

There are many paths to success. Pick one, and stick with it. Hone your craft, better yourself, and above all, don’t quit. You never know when success is right around the corner, and if you quit today, you’ll never know if tomorrow was going to be your first breakthrough.

Richard Marriott – Clambr

Richard Marriott1. Fear of Failure

You will fail more times than you win in life, but it’s the ability to get up and try again that will eventually lead your to success.

Too many people are deterred from living the Internet marketing lifestyle simply because they are afraid. Some are not just afraid of trying, but even afraid of succeeding. If you’re reading this post you must want to live the dream and you probably also know how to build a profitable lifestyle online, the question is what’s stopping you?

If it is fear that’s holding you back and nothing else, learn to confront it and deal with it. It’s good to be afraid and that will drive you to push towards your goals, but you should never let fear become so dominating that it literally stops you dead in your tracks. After all, fear is just a human emotion. Once you realise this, and how trivial it is, you can learn to laugh it off and move forward.

2. Social Conditioning

So you want to take the leap into the IM lifestyle but everyone around you is telling you otherwise – “but what about your career?”, “why don’t you just change jobs?”.

Society conditions us to follow by its rules, creating a flock of sheep rather than a pack of wolves. The sheep will murmur and baahh to keep you back in the pen. The thought of not having stable employment scares them and they will constantly warn you against quitting the 9 to 5 and living the Internet marketing dream because life outside the pen frightens them.

Sheep live out their days in a closed off, protected environment, with a steady flow of food and shelter and will stay there until they die. They are happy with a stable pay check and know nothing of the freedom the outside world offers. Their 2 week holiday allowance is enough for them. They don’t yearn for more.

Wolves can go for days without eating. They walk for miles, encounter many dangers, fight off other wolves and must adapt to survive. They live a fulfilling life and will grow their territory by the more they pursue.

My advice is to ignore the sheep. They will do nothing but cloud your mind with doubt and negativity. Seek advice from wolves. They don’t live behind fences. They are free and know it’s possible and far more fulfilling to live life out of the pen.

3. Too Much Conflicting Information

There are two types of advice on the Internet: The advice that will help your dreams come true, and the advice that will crush them.

When I started out looking for ways to make money online I was conned by a number of “get rich quick” schemes and almost gave up on the idea that building a comfortable lifestyle online was even possible. It’s easy to lose sight of how achievable the Internet marketing lifestyle actually is and if you go down the wrong path you will be doomed from the start.

The key is to trust in yourself, not in others to provide a quick and easy solution. You must create your own empire and seek information that will help you build something for yourself.

Don’t get distracted by “get rich quick” schemes. Block anything like that out of your mind. Learn to ignore it and focus on what you should be doing:

Building an authority site in a niche you can write about, love and has a masses of wallet out buyers ready to both learn from you and buy from you.

That’s it. It’s no magical formula, but it works.

Richard Marriott at the time of writing, is holed up in a secret French Alps location building a $9k a month authority site in 90 days.

Tom Coleman – MobiDigital

Tom ColemanMindset

The 1st and most important thing for me is mindset as most people are conditioned from a young age that they have to get a 9-5 job, so it is very hard to break free from that type of thinking that it is possible to make a full time income from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. It’s even harder When everyone else around you has the same conditioning too.

Risk Factor

2nd would be the risk factor. Most people are too comfortable in there current situation and too afraid to step outside the comfort zone and take a risk.

Self Doubt

3rd is self doubt and negative thinking. You need to train your mind to focus on the solution instead of the problem or focus on the positive outcomes rather than the negative outcomes. Focus on success and living the lifestyle you want to live instead of focusing on failure.

Fear

1: I do not think the problem is a new one. It is basically the same dilemma as any employed individual faces, whether it be online or offline – the fear of going it alone and giving up the reliance of a set regular income. Sure, working online gives you a lot of freedom, when you make it work, but the bottom line remains the same – some people are willing to take the plunge were others are not. Why? Next point….

Time

2: Maybe current responsibilities i.e. not having the time due to employment arrangements and family commitments. Maybe some people are not willing to embark on a long term transitional or trial period of the business idea (essential) and not willing to sacrifice the necessary time for what is still the main ingredient of success (online or offline) – hard work.

This is my eighth year working in online marketing and I still have a constant stream of projects under development, knowing that not all of them will enjoy the success that I originally envisaged. While I still hold a number of position 1 and page 1 site rankings, the reality is that few of us can really rely on just one income stream to fuel an online lifestyle, which may discourage some, so be prepared to have broad shoulders and keep developing quality new ideas in niche areas. If one works, give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy what you’ve worked for, but don’t become complacent. Whole workforce’s have been laid off over night just because of algorithm changes. Similarly, relying on a large social following is a mistake, many of those people may already have the current product or service you are marketing. So to have all your eggs in one basket is never a good idea, but especially online!

The Plunge

3: The continuing increase in competition in all online sectors is understandably going to make people think twice about ‘the plunge’. This together with Google’s recent pandering to big corporates in the hope that they will drive more people to their Adword platform – will no doubt been seen as a possible barrier when people are researching their market. On a positive note, us publishers can greatly improve our chances of success, if we aim towards what Google still holds above all else – original content via an engaging site.

The reality in my opinion is that more and more people are taking ‘the plunge’ to some degree and for those people it’s not only the hard work ingredient that they must bring to the table – but a mixture of constant research and development in an ever-changing online landscape which, despite the evolution and importance of social media, still boils down to the domination of Google search and how it favors your online aspirations. Oh and again, point number 1! : )

Brigham Dallas – Fat Boys’ Launch Pad

Brigham Dallas - Internet LifestyleLiving abroad barriers:

a) – The Unknown – people fear it. We embrace it. Adventure, the idea of exploring outweighs the danger of the unknown and fear of imperfect expectations of the future.

b) Friends and family connections – we give up a lot living abroad – the comfort of seeing a family daily or being close to those we currently care about. my friends circle has grown every time i move countries though.

c) Cost – this is the one that people think they can’t overcome… how on earth do you live abroad – it’s so costly? The truth? I’ve spent less on my lifestyle than you do on yours! imagine how much cheaper life would be if you didn’t have to pay $80 phone bills monthly, $1k house bill, $500 car payments, $250 in gas bills, and $15 every time you go out to eat. The fact is, 3rd world countries are cheap and if you have the luxury to work from your computer, you can pick the best and cheapest places to live.

d) Instability of the Region – What if i get sick overseas? What if i get in trouble? True. You could get injured, sick, abducted like on the movie taken, or thrown in prison for marijuana smoking in Malaysia (that’s would be worse than a horror movie!). But the truth is you could also get injured, sick, hit by a car, and shot in your backyard. Be careful, learn street smarts and don’t push yourself too hard at first. If the food looks shady, don’t eat it, don’t walk down a dark alley alone if you can avoid it and be constantly aware of your surroundings. Risk is always there, even at your own home, but intelligence mitigates some of the risk. And my experience has been that the benefits way outweigh the risks.

Barriers aside, traveling and learning from talented and passionate people from around the world has been the greatest education I could have acquired. You being one of them Perry, thanks for teaching me what I needed to get started on my career path in life.

What barriers deter people from living the Internet Marketing Lifestyle?


Success Means Only Doing What You Do Well, Letting Someone Else Do The Rest

November 14, 2013 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle by Perry Stevens

success

When starting a business online there are many new entrepreneurs to try to take on too much too fast. An excellent feature of the online lifestyle and working online, is that there are experts at your fingertips all of the time. There are millions of freelancers that can be found online each with their own individual skill set and this is extremely valuable if you are trying to get a business off of the ground, or you are trying to offer a service online.

One of the first realizations as a budding business owner or entrepreneur is that you can’t and shouldn’t try to do everything on your own. Sir Richard Branson runs multiple companies from Virgin Airlines, Virgin Trains and Virgin Mobile but he doesn’t fly his planes, drive his trains or man the call centers. He hire’s professionals to do that so he can grow and scale his business.

By checking the market for freelancers who have reliable skills to your business, you can work to fill in any gaps as a business owner or entrepreneur. This way you can focus on all of the aspects of your business that you feel that you can handle well, or that you feel that you are an expert on. The remaining pieces of your business can then be filled by a freelancer.

A prime example of this could be if you are a business who has just launched a new product. Offering up Internet marketing opportunities with commissions for Internet marketers is an excellent way that you can see a variety of advertising material produced for your product without having to spend the time creating it yourself. Creating advertising can take time, and making sure that your advertising is converting is something that takes even more time. The excellent part of Internet marketing is that quite a lot of the work is taken out of the hands of the business owner. They simply were to receive sales and pay out commissions as they receive their money. Internet marketers are reimbursed for their time and effort that is spent on advertising through these commission dollars and both parties end up making money. This is a prime example of how freelancers and online workers can make a difference with your online business.
