Many times in life the way you approach a project is the most important part of your success. Building your own profit pulling minisite online is no exception to this rule. If you have never tried to do this, or have tried and failed, then let me show you a way to success!
Like doing anything, there is a right way, and a wrong way, to do most things. Or to put it another way, there is an easy way, and a difficult way. Learning to build your own high profit one page minisite is no exception to this rule. You can cut out a lot of wasted time and hassle if you apply the right things to your project from the start.
That’s what you’re going to find out here. The right way to start your first profit pulling minisite project.
Step 1 – Decide why you want to learn to create mini websites.
Knowing the ‘why’ makes the ‘how’ more manageable. By having a goal in mind at the start you will have something to work towards. You will also know when you have arrived at the end of your project.
Let me tell you a story of someone I know who worked for a bank. Let’s call him Jack. He, of course, never had any experience building websites, or really anything to do with the internet. His wife – we will call her Lynda – was heavily involved with the Girl Guide movement in the UK.
One day Jack was surfing the net on his computer. Lynda was passing and said that she would really like a website for her Girl Guide troop. At that moment Jack made her a rash promise to build her the website she wanted! He then had a goal to aim for.
Well, ten years on, Jack is now one of the top UK internet marketers. He has a business online that draws in hundreds of thousands a year. Having that goal – to build his first website for the Girl Guides – opened up a whole world of possibilities to him, and gave him his first ‘why.’
So, what is your goal for your first website? For most people that will be to make a little money online, or even to replace their 9 – 5 regular job. Well, this is great to aim for in the future, but you really need to take things a little slower at the beginning to guarantee success.
Step 2 – Don’t run before you can walk!
Start by creating a simple one page minisite for a simple ebook or other small product. This includes two important factors. First, You will increase your chances of success by not taking on too much too soon, and second, you will be able to see the project through to completion quickly.
This second factor is critical in your success. Watching as your minisite project progresses quickly is very exciting and motivating. In only a few days, or a week or two, you can have your first sales minisite up and running. This is a great feeling and will spur you on to do it again and again.
Step 3. Learn, and do, a little every day.
No matter where your teaching is coming from, be it a book, class or course, you need to learn something new from it every day. And, you should also do something to progress your project every day, no matter how small.
Most people give up on their first minisite project simply because they leave it for a few days and then never get back to it. This can be fatal to your dreams. Do a little every day and you will see your minisite project progressing in the right way.
By doing it this way you will never be overwhelmed by the amount you still have to do. You will also have the time to devote to the little problems or difficulties that are bound to crop up from time to time. You will also be able to tick off the little steps as each are achieved . This shows you your progress so you can really watch your end goal coming closer.
Conclusion. If you really want to teach yourself to build websites then this three step strategy can help you win. Just believe that you can learn to do this. Many have before you. It’s not hard, and it can be hugely rewarding – both in cash earned, as well as personal achievement!
