I've done a lot of time in marketing, primarily social media marketing. I haven't been too active here, but I see a lot of what I would call "temporary schemes". PPD, media buys, and other things that bring income fast, but not continually. I've done a lot of temporary things, and they are great for quick cash and solid income if you can scale up. But I want to challenge more users to build something that lasts, and holds inherent value in itself. Your Youtube video with a COD hack link isn't really an asset, nor is your fake dating website you drive traffic to from POF. They're great ideas for a quick cash flow, but are limited in their ability to be scaled and produce consistent profit. Money right away is great, but the best decision I ever made was to create multiple internet-based companies that offer quality services. Of course the BHW rule of thumb is proof, but for certain reasons I can't connect those companies to this post. I'm not looking to make a motivational post everyone thanks me for. I seriously think as creative and talented as many users are here, that with the right plan and patience, more of you could create something fantastic. What should you create? Well if everyone had a profitable business plan, it would be too easy. Vision is a key part of being an entrepreneur, opportunities come and go, it's just being able to see a need and taking the steps to meet that need for others (for a price of course ). And a lot of methods here are lasting methods, a social media channel that provides good content, a niche website, a quality blog, there are plenty to be found here alone! That's my challenge, I certainly think a lot of "temporary" methods are great, I just want to challenge you guys to maybe invest some of that money, or spend some time on creating something that will last.
