For the past 2 years, I have shifted focus from affiliate marketing to E Commerce and crypto currency. Things was rosy at first. Unfortunately it has gone a bit difficult for me in terms of sustainable success. Crypto aka Bitcoin has not taken off yet. So why this rant? Let me tell you why.
For E Com, success comes when you have a winning product to sell, plus a steady flow of traffic. That has become increasingly difficult as of late as there a literally thousands of ECom players (or dropshippers) getting into the game, and fb traffic has become increasingly difficult for shopify stores, i.e advertising cost is getting more expensive. Yes I was able to sell a couple of items via dropshipping and Print On Demand, however it is not sustainable for me. Selling 50 item or less in a month does not support and doesn’t cut it for me.
Now when it comes to crypto and bitcoin, I have laid the groundwork for myself. I had my cold & hot wallets setup, mining rig in place, etc. I am still a proponent of bitcoin, and will keep a close eye on it. But it has not shoot up yet (when moon, when lambo?). I do believe in will come, especially with the next halving that will occur in 2020.
But as an internet marketer, I cannot wait and stay still until 2020 bitcoin to potentially goes up. Time is money.
This forced me to do some soul searching, take inventory and look at where I am at now with my online business.
I realized that I need to continue doing what I know best, and that is becoming a good digital marketer. So, I’m going back to basics.
Basics such as restoring my list, building my list, having my Buy Now buttons up.
The fourth quarter 2019, my focus will be just that. And I am going to document that journey. I will still keep a close eye on bitcoin because that is coming.
So in essence, I am answering the question, “What would you have done if you were to start all over?”
My answer is, I would do the same thing, but this time with more accountability.
So now, here I am being accountable to you, as I am going to document my journey on how to build my 5000 subscribers list. I’m going to document all the steps, all the success, all the troubles that I face when building 5000 fresh list of subscribers.
So keep a look out in this blog. Until then.
