Evolution – As an Online Entrepreneur!

The Life-Cycle of an Online Marketer

What stage of growth as an online entrepreneur/affiliate marketer are you?

How would you rank/categorize yourself?

Be honest – this is a self-assessment.

At the Online Alliance, we created some parameters (definitions) so we could better serve our members in recommending the best fit in regards to marketing systems, automation tools and affiliate products/offers for them to market.

Stage 1 – new entrant / beginner

Stage 2 – intermediate

Stage 3 – advanced

Stage 4 – experienced

Stage 5 – expert

 

How would you categorize yourself at the moment? … here is some more information that will help you.

Stage 5 – expert

  • makes a full-time income & lives off the Internet
  • consistently earning $10k or more online
  • has multiple offers (and therefore income streams)
  • has fully integrated systems
  • has their own front end offer(s)
  • has their own membership site
  • possibly does their own events or workshops
  • may have a brand (not all experts are in the public domain)

 

Stage 4 – experienced

  • makes a full-time income from the Internet
  • makes $10k or more however NOT living off the Internet

  • has many systems maybe not all fully integrated
  • has their own front end offer(s)
  • may have their own membership site
  • probably doesn’t do their own events or workshops
  • may have a brand or is developing one

In this stage you can see some BIG gaps that differentiate the experienced from the expert. It’s not just defined by Income earnings or living off the Internet full-time. There are gaps in systems/automation etc.

 

Stage 3 – advanced

  • need to learn how to create the systems & a marketing budget
  • need systems and a product(s) to market
  • need truthful mentoring and coaching
  • needs to be resourceful and assign a budget to start online

 

Truth / Tuff Love – less than 1% of people will have success online if they try to start a business with NO Money! Your better off not wasting your time until you can afford at least the very basic start up cost.

Low-end budget – $150 upfront and at least $60 / month

Sweet Spot – $1,300 upfront and at least $60 / month

Top end budget – $2,500 upfront and at least $150 / month

 

Note: the above excludes paid traffic expenses (… however we will teach you how to create your budget for paid traffic).
