The First Step For Internet Marketing Success

Profile photo of Adam D. Mason Submitted by Adam D. Mason March 16, 2016


There is one thing that you must do in order to reach the top, no matter where you are in your Internet marketing career.

If you never do this one thing, you will never reach your true potential in your Internet business.

Now if you find yourself asking questions like,​

What do I have to do to make it in Internet Marketing?

What do I have to do get to the top?

What is the secret?

What is the one thing that I must do to be number one?

Then you will benefit from taking this first step.​

I started my career in Internet marketing back in 2010. My first company was Carbon Copy Pro. I was very thrilled with what I was learning and I thought that the leadership was top notch. But, things happened and they folded.

From there I jumped around.

I followed a few leaders from Carbon Copy Pro to other companies like it, then I tried my hand somewhere else. To this day I have only joined 4 companies, which is pretty low, but still enough to make me feel like I was chasing a shiny object.

That idea that I needed to jump companies and find a better leader who cares about me or a company that pays better was always in the back of my mind. ​

But, I also was’t really too worried about where I hung my hat because I was working for the Postal Service. Which may account for my low number of jumps.

I was in a job that, unless I really screwed up, (like really, really, really screwed up) I was going to get paid every two weeks. I had, for the longest time, in the back of my mind a pretty comfortable place to fall if things did not work out in my Internet business.

That meant that I never did that one thing that was required to actually move my business forward.

And it showed.

My Internet business was nothing more than a hobby for the longest time.

I would go on a training call and I would think about what I learned, I might write something about that call, or I might even give the strategy a try.

But, I never made a decision to really work on my Internet business.

That’s it. The big secret.

Told best by Eric Worre.

“Make a decision. A real decision that you’re not gonna look right, you’re not gonna look left, you’re looking straight forward. There is no retreat. There are no other options. You’re going to the top. You’re gonna go to the top of the mountain. They’re gonna see you waving from the top of the mountain or dead on the side of the road on the path to that summit because you’re not coming back. That that moment when you burn your bridges, that moment when you eliminate all your escape plans and all your Plan Bs and Plan Cs and Plan Ds. The thing that gets in the way of most of your success in network marketing is you have too many other options.”

No matter how I try to sum it up, Eric’s words convey the message best.

Now in his Video Eric says that he was forced to make this decision because he had no place else to go. You may be in that same situation. You may not.

You see, this secret is not so secret. I heard it many times before. I’ve read it in many books. I’ve heard it from the mouths of leaders on many training calls, and I’m sure you have too.

You may think you made a decision, but if you find that a bad call or a team member moving on can make you falter, then you have not truly made a decision.

Nothing will be able to move you, nothing will keep you from reaching the top of the mountain when you finally make a decision.

There are no excuses. If there is someone in your company who has made it to the top, than you can too. There is nothing wrong with the product, there is nothing wrong with the compensation plan. The only thing wrong is your decision.

Make the decision to be a Professional in your Internet Marketing business.

    Interesting story Adam. It makes a lot of sense too.

    It took me back to when I was a boy and climbing hills. The whole point of climbing a hill is to get to the top. You don’t climb a hill to go half-way and change your mind. You climb the hill for the view and it doesn’t matter whether it is Mount Everest or a mound of dirt in your driveway, you climb that hill to get to the top.

    Great post.

    Hi Adam,
    This is another inspiring piece from you! Making a decision to succeed at all cost is pretty important when it comes to becoming successful online.
    If one don’t make the necessary decision and employ the NEEDED ACTION then it becomes difficult to attain success.

    I will add that the first step to Internet marketing success is to have a view of what is bigger than reality!

      Hello Sunday,

      It may sound like an easy thing to do, but for some reason many of us struggle with it.
      Just make the decision.
      I don’t know how many years I struggled thinking I had made a decision only to be distracted and put off my marketing efforts.

      You will truly know that you have made a decision when nothing knocks you from the path.

      Thank you for commenting.

    Truly letting go of all other options and making the decision to go after what you really want in life, giving it your all is truly the first step to reaching success in anything that you do whether it be internet marketing, networking marketing, starting a business, or changing careers. Great article and great advice for anyone looking for success.

      Hello Lawrence,

      That is true, making the decision to go after what you want is the first step to many things. It just comes so much easier for us when it is dealing with a decision to take a hike at lunch or to have chicken for dinner. Each example we let go of all other options, such as sit at the desk or walk to the burger joint for lunch, but really we go through the same process.
      I think it is easy to forget this process with online business because it is so easy to jump from one idea to the next.

      Thank you for your insight.

    Hey Adam,

    I use to be in network marketing and I remember Carbon Copy Pro. That was when I started incorporating internet marketing into my business.

    But yes, a decision is where you have to start no matter what happens around you. If you’re not serious about your business, then you have to question your decision.

    You definitely don’t want to be like an octopus on roller-skate in going everywhere but in reality not going no where.

    Thanks for sharing Adam! Have a great weekend!

    To become a success in Internet marketing one needs to take the right step, and this really need to be professionally inclined.

    Internet marketers must see their task as professionals so they can put in the needed plans and actions.

    Internet marketing is a business – at least, if the owner wants to make money from it! Like all businesses, there is need to observe the principles of management – planning, organizing, leading and controlling!

    Success with Internet marketing takes a snap of a decision to make. Until we come to the point of “no return” in our decision, we may still be having a hobby instead of business online.

    The decision to “work” the business is very crucial for online success and this is should be made soonest.

    There is a difference between a hobby and a business when it comes to setting up an online business. That difference is clearly based on making the sacrifice and seeing Internet making as the source of “survival”

    Hey Adam,

    This is an awesome post. I agree, the moment you really make that DECISION, things can change rapidly. There’s nothing holding you back.

    It made me think of something I learned from Tony Robbins once (not personally, of course ;-)):

    Belief => Potential => Action => Results.

    The way we look at things, shape our potential and dictate the action we take. And we all know that our actions create the results!

    Thanks for sharing this. I truly appreciate it.

    – Jasper

    Hi Adam,

    This is a good motivational post you wrote here. I agree with the point on decision making.

    But what if you make the decision but you don’t have the right skills or resources to make it work?

    What then?
