The Numbers Game

The Numbers Game

Here’s one of the single most powerful tool you can use to organize your business.

Its a numbers game.

The Pareto Rule

I love the Pareto rule. Vilfredo Pareto was a nineteenth-century Italian economist who observed that 80 per cent of Italy’s wealth was owned by 20 per cent of the population.

For example, in your business, a vital few activities result in 80 percent of your income.

Twenty per cent of all your actions will account for 80 per cent of your results
Twenty per cent of your customers will account for 80 per cent of your sales
Twenty per cent of your products and services will account for 80 per cent of the value of what you do.

Another way of putting it is that if you have a list of ten tasks, two of those tasks will be far more valuable than the other eight tasks put together.  Each of the tasks may take the same time to accomplish, but one or two of the the tasks may contribute five
or ten times the value.  Sometimes just one task can be worth more than the other nine together.

The Pareto rule relates to efficiency. It means focusing on stuff that matters rather than spreading yourself thin. Unfortunately for most people trying to make money online, they are stuck on the wrong side of the Pareto Principle. They keep focusing on the 80 percent of their time that delivers hardly any return.  Sounds familiar?

It’s easy to constantly get distracted from your main line of work, especially if you are working from home. So how can you fix this? I recently read this interesting book about time management and it helped me put my online business back on track. Need help to manage your time? Read the latest tips here!

Mid Year’s Resolution

Mid Year’s Resolution

Last year I didn’t break the bank with internet marketing, but to my surprise, I did have some success. This year I intend to hit the mark and much, much more. That’s my Mid Year’s resolution anyway and I don’t intend on breaking it.

I know what you are thinking right now,

Dream on Dude, the economy is in meltdown and you think you’re going to increase your income? Actually, yes I do.

People are going to be turning to the Internet to find online savings like never before and the smart affiliates will already have plenty of stores in place to accommodate them and rack up some serious change. I intend on being front row and center.

Today marks the half way mark to the end of the year. Before you know it, Christmas will be upon us and our attention will be turn towards presents and holidays. What better way to shop than on the internet? Is your business ready for the Christmas rush? Now may be a good time to lock in your Christmas 2009 strategy and build the business in time for the rush.

How To Make Money From Passions


To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in
unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working
world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you. Read the rest of this entry
