As I get more and more involved with Internet marketing, I’m realizing a very important concept – that time is the only truly limited resource. You can always make more money without limit but time is something that you cannot collect, turn back, or gain. No matter what you do, there will always be only 24 hours in a day.
Of course this is relevant to life in general, but it is especially important to Internet business where we try to do everything and anything to make money online. Are you making the most of your time?

This is one of my favorite Nike commercials, mainly because it’s so applicable to life in general. Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time, talks about all of his failures, the missed shots and the lost games, and attributes them as the reason why he succeeds.
Now I don’t know about you, but that line hits home for me in all areas of my life. There have been so many instances where I failed and wanted to give up, but little did I know that my failures were paving the way for future success.

As this blog has been expanding in popularity over the past couple of months, one thing that I’ve noticed is the increasing number of emails from readers. Readers will contact me for a variety of reasons, including to ask questions about Internet marketing strategies in general, to promote some of their own products and services, to reply to a question that I presented in a previous post or contest, to inquire about advertising fees, or to simply compliment me on what I’ve been doing. I do appreciate all feedback that I receive and want to pay attention to my readers and cater to their needs as much as possible. However, at a certain point, email itself can become an overwhelming full-time job. How do you handle this?

Do you have goals for your website? If not, you are missing a critical step in your journey to success. It amazes me how people start websites without having any real goals they are striving for.

In this article I will detail the important components of an effective goal using the SMART acronym. I’ll also share with you Winning the Web’s own set of goals so you can use it as a guide.

If you’re anything like me, brainstorming is an exciting yet crazy time where ideas flow like an uncontrollable waterfall. Sure, there are days when I’m dry out of ideas but optimizing the brainstorming process can lead to a steady stream of creative ideas. Think of it like a weather storm. Rain, hail, snow, and ice all fly down from the sky at random and unpredictable intervals and are usually accompanied by thunder, lightning, wind, and darkness in an eerie atmosphere. If you want to collect the downpour, you have to be prepared and eliminate all distractions. In the same way, a brain storm results in a downpour of ideas and thoughts accompanied by many distractions, poor decision making, and unrealistic goals. In order to collect the good and discard the bad, it is important to weather the brain storm and ensure the process is streamlined for those brilliant ideas. In this article I will lay out the process that I use to brainstorm my ideas for blog posts and articles, website ideas, and business/marketing strategies. You might have a different methodology that works better for you so feel free to share with a comment, email, or blog post.

Working for yourself from home is extremely hard work. Sure it comes with a ton of benefits like being your own boss, working your own hours, creating your own ideas, and executing your own plan. However, for some people these “benefits” really are not benefits at all and are in fact the cause of much distress and trouble. Too much independence without proper direction and motivation can lead to small goals, poor time management, and a negative attitude. You no longer have a boss to order you around or predefined deadlines to complete deliverables. Instead, you’re going to have to find motivation within yourself to improve and succeed. The ball’s in your court. How are you going to handle it?

Many people think they can go about this Internet world alone and keep all of the profits for themselves. Although a few people have gone this route and have been successful, in the long run it is much better to find a business partner and work as a team. Lone rangers, beware.

Have you heard of the Pareto principle? If you haven’t, you’re missing out on a key business idea and may be working inefficiently for little gain. This is a principle mentioned in Timothy Ferris’ popular book, 4-Hour Work Week and is extremely relevant in online business and in Internet entrepreneurship.
The Pareto principle states that for many events, 80% of the effects come from only 20% of the causes.
So what does that mean for you, the Internet entrepreneur, SEO, or affiliate marketer? Let’s look at some examples of how this rule applies to your online business.
