Now let me tel you that in order to succeed online yo need to be found online and being found online consists of being on the first page of Google.
No place else matters when being online. The first page is king.
Their are also a lot of people out their trying to sell SEO service saying they will get you to the fist page of google. Let me warn you a lot of them are scams but also a lot of them are for real. So the question remains is how do you tell the real ones from the fake ones.
First I will tell you to pray about it because in the long run you will not be lead astray. But let me emphasize the long run part because in the short run you could be learning an important lesson.
Then ask around and see if any of your friends have had success with anyone or if they happen to do it themselves. And make sure you trust the person.
I tried to do it by myself at first by following this website called Moz. But I later found out that Moz was only one piece of the puzzle and a vey fuzzy one at that.
I was lucky because I had a friend that had a company and it is http://portlandseonow.com.
They ended up being absolutely awesome. But What I liked about them the most was that they were totally honest and up front with me. They told the time frames I should expect and if they did not meet those time frames they would continue to do the work for free until I got my desired results.
They actually did not meet the time frame but they did continue to do the wok until I got my desired results. It actually only took them 1 extra month to get me to the fist page of Google. But they did deliver on there promise. In their words was that they do not control Google but they are good at what they do and they always deliver on their promise no matter what.
Sometimes you just have to trust someone on their word and go from their. When is comes to SEO and this whole digital marketing world you have to just trust someone and have the faith that you chose the right one. Again the first thing that I always do is kneel down and pray to make sure I am being led in the right direction.
One way or another I always get led in the right direction. I don’t always like the direction but I do get led the right way.
So have faith and just go out and chase your dreams no matter what and faith that God has an amazing plan for you.
Everybody is always asking me the question of how do I succeed?
I always hesitate to tell them because success is different for everyone and the way to succeed is always different for everyone. And the definition of success is always different for everyone also.
Fitst I tell them subscribe to the magazine Success. In that magazine you see all different types of success and ways to success. Again everyone is different and it is important that you see all different types of success and the different paths to success. I tell you what I have been down many different paths and a lot of them are dead ends but that is okay because I learned from those dead end paths and I kept going. The crazy thing is that those paths that were dead ends for me were and still are home runs for other people. So what I am trying to tell you here is that my path might not your correct path and your correct path may have been a dead end for me. But the one thing that still holds is that you have to keep trying until you do find that correct path.
But the one thing that I hold to being my one true path to success was praying. I consider myself a servant to the Lord and first thing I always do is first give thanks and then pray for the wisdom and guidance. Now I don’t always get an answer delivered on a bolt of lightning or even an answer in the way I want it but an answer is always delivered or given.
So I pray and then I just work. If you work and keep pressing forward goos things will happen eventually. Not always right away but it eventually will.
A great book that I read is the Compound Effect. I won’t write a book report here because you should really read it yourself. The main point is that if you keep doing the small stuff and big stuff on a regular consistent basis great and amazing stuff will happen. You just have to open the door or be at the door to open when great things are on their way to you.
Let’s face everybody’s schedules are different and everybody works at a different pace. My friend Gerald is the busiest person I know but he truly can get a tremendous amount of work done in a span of one hour because he has learned how to focus his mind on energy on one task at a time and by doing that he is very successful. Now my friend Lolo has all the time in the world and can hardly get anything done in an hour because she is not focused and considers time spent talking to people on Facebook a part of business even if she is helping people. What she needs to do is focus her time on money making activities and get those done before she can go on Facebook and converse in her Facebook groups.
As you can see I have basic steps to succeed.
- Get to work
- Don’t be afraid of going down the wrong trail every now and then no matter what other pay say
- Don’t give up
- Get to work
- Commit yourself to focused work
Again everybody has a different path but don’t ever give up.
