Keep your eye on the prize!

Since I launched Article Underground back in February 2006 I have been getting a ton of emails from people who either downloaded the special report and have watched the videos, or simply people who have read the AU sales page or used the free content. Up until now I have answered each email personally, often with detailed responses.

Many of the emails are very complimentary and some are even “fan mail like”. That’s cool! Also most all of the emails indicate they are in agreement with my advice and suggestions, but every once in a while I will get an email that is more like a CHALLENGE to DUEL (gunfight) that says something like “you make a lot of sense BUT convince me why X and Y is _____.”

The other day I took one of these CHALLENGES and wrote up a little email which made me realize that there are so many products out there that do NOT deliver and so many guru people are just out to make a quick buck that there are a lot of people who despite being in agreement and being “sold” still need a personal invitation or acknowledgement.

In this particlular email the person was explaining how he was buying this program and that but thought he might need x and y and if I could tell him what else he needed before he signed up for Article Underground…

It made me realize how many people out there are information overload and have already bought solutions and still buying more products and info courses but at the risk of only fragmenting their efforts even more.

I took a somewhat stern approach and fortunately this guy got it and responded positively with many thanks…

Here is the response to his email. I thought it is worth sharing with you all.

“I realize that you do not know me and trust me yet. But you need to buy 1 product and stick with it. Too many things will distract you and stop you from focusing.

What I offer is a simple one stop solution that has everything you need to get started and maybe even for a long time.
Every extra thing you buy will steal time away from the simple process of putting words on web pages and getting links to them. Thats what makes $$$

If you already have dreamweaver that’s fine – I use it it – I do hear xsitepro is great and very easy – but if you buy that too it will steal time that you could be spending on making pages. You don’t need to buy more courses and Adsense videos or anything else. If you want them go ahead. I bought those courses, but I have not had much time to look at them. I have heard they have nothing new and that AU has much of that stuff covered.

I have learned that you can buy all of the books and courses in the world, but if you do not start your diet – how can you lose pounds??? Just buying the diet book doesn’t lose you weight.

Get a membership to Article Underground – tell everyone around you to give you time to yourself and start putting the words on the pages and uploading them to a server and getting them links. That’s all you need to do to get started making money. You will learn as you go along what really makes you money OR you won’t and you’ll be stuck on the current path of looking and looking and researching and planning…

IF you DO NOT do those 2 simple things (put words on pages and get links) you will not make one penny because you need people to see your pages. Reading a book or learning software does not make you money. It steals your time fromm the simple things that when repeated will make you money.”

The moral to this story is that you really don’t need a lot of tools and experience to beome a web publisher. You just need to get to the point where you can PUT WORDS ON PAGES and GET LINKS to your pages! While that may seem difficult and can be difficult for someone without experience, it really isn’t rocket science! 

There is no right way to do it – only good ways and better ways. Start doing and you’ll find the best ways as you go along. why not make money as you learn as opposed to spending all your time studying and learning and analyzing how th ebest way to get started is… 

Just by doing you will be one step ahead of all the others that are planning. 

Don’t be a PLANNER… be a DOER!

  2. Hi Mike,

    I appreciate what you have done and I want to be a member to Article Underground. Only thing is that I’m from the Philippines and Paypal is not offering it’s services in my country yet.

    Do you have another payment form where you accept credit card payment?

  3. I’m working on another processor. I would love to have more people be able to subscribe. I’ll post info as I find out more. since it is a subscription it is more challenging than a 1 time payment.
