Today, I will help you learn how to succeed with an online business. I’m going to share with you the best tips to help you build a real business on the internet.

A lot of people do not take this “online business” very seriously!

And today, I will tell you straight up, what you need to know and really understand, in order to build a successful online business.

Let’s get started!! ….

Can you feel the passion?!! 😉

I hope you are now more inspired and motivated to keep working on your dreams and goals in life!

You already know you can accomplish many things in your life.

And one of them is building a successful online business.

There are no hidden secrets here.

But there are the wrong and right ways to build it.

This is why you must invest in your education here.

You need to learn exactly what are the things that you must do, and how you must do everything, to get the results you are looking for online.

How to Succeed with an Online Business?

Here are the things you need to learn, and you need to truly understand, to build a successful business online;

Set Measurable Goals

Setting measurable goals is a great way to keep yourself moving forward and gain momentum, fast.

When you accomplish a small goal, you will get more motivated to keep going. And you will get more energy to keep putting very productive work!

Feeling accomplished very often, will help you gain more confidence in yourself. And that will result in more consistent action.

You get what I mean!? ..

Little by little, it becomes like an addicting game. Where you just want to keep winning!

There is also a psychology behind this type of behavior.

They use this type of “measurable goals” psychology in video games, for example.

Have you ever noticed, that the easier you level up, gain points, and/or win something, in a video game, the more addicting the video game is?? ..

I bet you have!!

It is because, by nature, when we feel accomplished, in any way, we want to keep having that feeling.

And the easier it is for us to have the slightest feeling of accomplishment, the more we will keep on going!

This is why, I always recommend people to set measurable goals when working online, It can make a huge difference!! 😉

A Lot of Passion

In order to achieve greatness, you must love what you do!

You cannot do great at something you do not love or even like. That is just the truth.

Passion will also give you a lot of the right type of energy that you need, to do great work.

In this industry, you can’t really have a lot of success with just “good” work. You need GREAT work, to get great results!

This is one of the most important keys to build a successful business online and even offline.

You must be very passionate about what you are doing, and find ways to get paid doing it.

Successful people find ways to get paid for what they already love doing!! Click To Tweet

Just listen to the best advice Steve Jobs has, for entrepreneurs….

You heard it from one of the greats!! 😉

Make sure you find your passion online. And learn ways to make money with it.

What is Your WHY?

You need to ask yourself, WHY should you succeed here?

What are the reasons you must build a successful business online?

These reasons will help you push through all of the hard times, and persevere.

Without these reasons, you might not do whatever it takes, and push through, no matter what.

It is important that you remind yourself, on a daily basis, WHY you must succeed. And also, WHO is counting on you to succeed.

If your WHY doesn't make you CRY, it is not strong enough!!! Click To Tweet

You get what I mean here? …

Think about the people who are counting on you to make it happen. Use them as motivation to do whatever it takes.

You will go through hard times. You will face adversity. So you need anything and everything to help you push through it all.

Strong Self-Discipline

This is something I struggled with a lot, at the beginning of my online journey.

I knew what I had to do. But, for some reasons, I would procrastinate and not follow through with what I told myself I would do.

I was lacking a strong self-discipline!

And maybe you are too.

And maybe you are not realizing it.

If you are not getting the results you want to get online, take a step back, and look at the bigger picture.

Think about the things you have been doing, so far, to be where you are at right now.

Maybe you are lacking a strong self-discipline to put in the necessary work, on a daily basis.

Maybe you are caring more about sleeping longer, than about building a successful online business.

You need to look at your Priorities too!!

Build up a strong self-discipline to do the work, and put in a lot of time and effort – so you can take good care of the most important things in your life.

And I am sure, building a successful business, is one of them!

Good Organization

If you are not organized, when working online, and on your own, you are most likely to procrastinate and end up all over the place.

Lack of organization can result on lack of productivity.

You need to realize that!

Since you are working for yourself, and you are your own boss, isn’t it obvious that you must get organized to work efficiently?

Isn’t obvious that you must come up with your own work schedule to follow, every day or every week?

Isn’t obvious that you need to create a master-plan to build your own business?

Isn’t obvious that you need to treat this like a REAL Business, if you want it to pay you like one?

If you treat this as a “hobby”, it will pay you like a hobby. If you treat this as a REAL BUSINESS, it will pay you like a real business!

Get organized, and learn how to work efficiently online.

Here is a great blog post for you to read on this topic: How to Become More Organized and Efficient When Working Online

Strong Focus

All of your energy will go to what you are focusing on the most.

Building a successful online business, will require a lot of energy. Because it needs a lot of work.

If you are not focusing on the income producing activities online (things that will eventually make you money) – you are not giving your business enough energy for it to achieve success.

Makes sense?! ..

You need to focus on the right activities to generate targeted traffic, leads, and sales, online!

Lack of focus equals lack of energy, and lack of energy equals lack of action, and lack of action equals NO RESULTS.

Can you dig this?

I hope so!

You must focus on the right things online.

If you want to get the results you are looking for online, you must focus as much as possible!

There is no way around it.

Learn how to laser focus on the right things.

I’m not saying is easy. But I am saying that it is possible.

You already have what it takes to focus on what you need to do every single day. You are just choosing not to!

This is also why you need to find something that you are very passionate about. So you can focus a lot better and a lot easier.

And reminding yourself about WHY you must succeed, every single day, will also help you push yourself to focus as much as possible.

You can do it.

You just need to make the settled decision to FOCUS!

Work On Yourself!!

Success is 80% Mindset and 20% Hard Work.

What does this tell you?

You must work on your self-development.

I highly recommend you to read self-improvement and self-development books. You can even listen to audio books and download ebooks.

There is so much great self-development education online, that you can find for free.

There are no excuses to why you would not be able to work on your mindset. And on the person that is within you.

Success starts within.

Success starts on the inside. Never on the outside!

Realize that!

You must work on the person who is inside of you.

You must work on your mentality.

Work on your mindset. Enrich your mind with the right type of knowledge.

If you want to become wealthy, listen to the wealthy people.

Success leaves clues!

If you want to accomplish success, find these clues, and follow them as much as possible.

Building a successful online business is not rocket science.

You can accomplish a lot of success in this industry and in your life, if you just take the time to pay close attention to those who are already successful!

Got it?!! 😉

Let me give you 3 gifts on this topic:

Download these ebooks, and read them on your spare time. You will learn a lot from them.

And don’t just read them, IMPLEMENT what you learn in your life!

Daily Action Plan

You need to know exactly what you must be doing on a daily basis, online.

You need a game plan.

You need a blue-print to follow.

It is not optional!!

You need this, to know exactly what you need to be doing online every single day.

Without a daily action plan, it will be easy for you to lose focus, and not be as productive online.

When I first started online, I never thought about coming up with my own daily action plan. I did not care to create my own schedule to follow on a daily basis.

And that led me to a lot of failures!

Do not make the same mistake.

Take the time to create a schedule and a daily action plan, according to your current lifestyle.

Especially, when you still have a part time or full time job. And you also might have kids and a family to look after.

So, you have to be very smart with your time!!

If you do not organize yourself, and you do not create a daily action plan, with a work-schedule to follow, you are not going to accomplish much with the little time you have to work on your online business.

You must take this very seriously!

This is a real business you are wanting to build, right?

Do you think a successful business is built by chance, and with luck?

…. or with hard work, dedication, and smart decisions?

You tell me!!

This is also why you must invest in your education here.

If you want to become a successful internet marketer, invest in your internet marketing education!

And then take massive action with everything that you learn.

Taking action on everything that you learn, will allow you to craft the best daily action plan you can follow to get massive results online.

You need to customize your daily action plan as you move forward!

As you take a lot of consistent action online, you will start to learn what works best for you and what does not.

And you should be crafting the best daily action plan, that you can follow, accordingly.

Don’t wait for things to be “perfect”, for you to take action.

Just take action and adjust things as you move forward!

Massive Consistent Action

This is the last tip I’m going to give you. And the most obvious one, to help you build a successful online business.

You must take massive consistent action!

There is no question about it!

If you want to get massive results online ….. guess what …. you must take massive amounts of action!

The right actions, that is.

Again, this is why it is very important that you invest in your internet marketing education.

So you can start learning the tasks you should be taking massive action with, online.

Lucky for you, there is a lot of internet marketing education here on this blog. Take the time to learn the right knowledge, and implement things right away!

If you take massive consistent action with the right things online, you will get the results you are you looking for. Period!

You just have to be VERY consistent with all of the work you need to put in to build your online business.

Consistent action is another important key to building a success business!

It’s your turn to speak up!

Wrapping it up

When it comes down to building a successful online business, it really is all about HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

Right?! …

You must ask yourself this question every single day.

Look at yourself in the mirror, and ask yourself this question.

Think about the ones counting on you to make it happen.

Think about the type of life you will have if you just push through everything, and accomplish all of your online goals.

These are things that will help you keep motivated and inspired to keep pushing forward, no matter what.

Here is a good blog post to teach you how to keep yourself very motivated and inspired, every day: How to Keep Yourself Motivated

These are great tips to teach you how to succeed with an online business!

You now know what you need to know, and how you need to approach this online business journey.

The responsibility to make it happen is now on you!!

Don’t make excuses to why you can’t do something. Instead, make excuses to why you cannot and will not fail!! 😉

I believe in you.

And I know you believe in yourself too.

    Do I get a prize for the first comment?

    Freddy is a podcasting maniac. Awesome to see some one taking massive action 🙂

    Some great tips.

    I know I am more than guilty of not following some of the rules myself.

    Seems to me, from what I’ve seen over the years, many people lack self discipline. For many people it’s easier to work for a boss and be told what to do, than to work for themselves. Guess it’s not the same as having some one over their shoulder making sure they are getting their work done. Plus, it’s different when they have to perform to get their pay.

    Only thing I could add is that I think a mindset of total belief in what we are doing and that we WILL success is SO important. Well, you talked about that. Just something that helped me get started and find success.

    Enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing Freddy 🙂

      Hey Ron!!

      haha well your prize is a big THANK YOU!! 😉 …

      Yeah, I totally agree with you man. Most people lack the strong self-discipline they need, to do the tasks they must be doing on a daily basis, to get the results they are looking for!

      And I think most people find it easier to be told what to do, when to do it, by someone else, and get paid for all that – because it is easier to have things all figured out than to think for yourself and build something yourself.

      I don’t understand sometimes how people can be like that. It is okay to trade your time and efforts for money, but not for a really long time. You must think about the time when you get old. You must start thinking about building something of your own, that will give a nice cash flow. So you can enjoy life as much as possible, as you get older!

      It is sad to see the elder people, still trading their time and labor for peanuts!

      This is why I share what I share, and I do my best to teach and inspire! 🙂

      Thanks for passing by and being the first one to leave a cool comment, Ron!

      Keep up the great work yourself!

      Have a great week! 😀

    Hey Freddy,

    What a great, motivational post.

    For me, although I was working hard on my blog, I had to step a couple of steps back and go through tips like this in order to get over the hump. Especially to redefine my goals and break them down even more.

    I also had to really look at my why. I hasn’t change too much, but there are other reasons why I wanted to build my blog and business.

    And mindset is big when it comes to your business. Especially when you get those naysayers or becoming desperate. You have to become balance so that you can look attractive to the right people. At first this sounded like hocus-pocus to me, but there’s an actually science to this!

    I haven’t went all the way through your podcast, but I will check it out!

    Thanks for sharing Freddy! We need this motivation sometimes!

      Hey Sherman!!

      yeah, sometimes we need to take a few steps back, and re-analyze everything we are doing!

      The important thing is that we can always take steps back, to re-group, learn more, learn from our mistakes and then get back on a better and improved path.

      As long as we are always moving forward, we are okay!

      Yeah man … mindset is key to any type of success. In anything!

      If you can’t succeed in your mind, you are most likely not going to succeed outside of your mind. 😉 …. you know what I mean!

      And yes, there is the right ways and wrong ways to build a successful online business, that is for sure!

      Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment, Sherman!

      have a great week! 😀

      Hey Ejiga!!

      Yes, it is not easy to build your own online business from scratch. But, it is not impossible.

      The great things in life, need a lot of great action!

      If you want to build massive wealth, you need massive action. And not just any type of action, but massive consistent action with the RIGHT KNOWLEDGE! 😉

      I’m glad you can benefit from this post man!

      Keep up the great work!

    Outstanding blog post, Freddy!

    The tips you illustrated were phenomenal. It made me reprioritize somewhat my thinking and how to go about my online business in a more strategic way. In other words, it just made the process easier for me when I look and apply the methods in the very fashion you described.

    The one step I zeroed in on quite a bit was making a daily action plan and sticking to it. As you are very aware it is so easy to get off track and I struggle at various times with this. From this point forward, I’m going to write out my daily action plan and stick to it.

    Also, I wanted to give you a big “thank you” for the ebooks as how thoughtful and kind of you. You are definitely in this to help others and that is clearly demonstrated in your blogs. I appreciate you a ton, Freddy.

    Hi Freddy,
    You have said it all! With these points there is no excuse for someone not to succeed with an online business.

    One of the points made in this post and which I completely agree with is the fact that one must have ‘strong self-discipline’. There is no denying that fact.

    Thanks for this podcast Freddy, and I have just saved this in Pocket app installed in my browser!
    I left the above comment in kingged.com as well.

      Hey Sunday!

      I did my best to give the best advice man!!

      I’m sure this information will help a lo lot of newbies in this industry!

      A very strong self-discipline is definitely a must, here. You must build up a very strong self-discipline to do the necessary work very consistently!

      Building an online business or even an offline business, from scratch, takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It is not that easy. But most seem to not want to accept that!

      If you treat this as a real business, it will pay you like one! 😉
