Welcome! My name is Jude Banks. I’ve been involved with full-time online marketing for over a decade and enjoy the freedom of being my own boss and setting my own hours.
To learn a little more about me, read my profile.
Have you dreamed of having your own online business? The purpose of this website is to share how to use the internet as a tool to create income and establish your very own income-producing website.
We’ve all heard that one of the keys to success is to take action. That’s true. “Doing” is important. But I believe that long lasting success requires taking inspired action. I explain later in this post what I mean by “inspired action”.
Learning how to make a living online takes focus and effort. The right kind of training and support will save countless hours of wasted time and frustration.
It is a cliche to say that knowledge is power. I like to think of knowledge as the fuel that drives us to take action to get the results we desire.
Whatever your background, age or experience, I hope that the marketing information and affiliate tips and insights throughout this site will help you to achieve your goals and dreams.
If you have always wanted to create your own website, even just to share your talents and passions with the world, my work here is to point you in the right direction to get started.
To generate income online the next 2 steps will help you to set a strong foundation going forward.
The first step is to decide your niche. In marketing terms, a niche is a common interest that is shared by a group of people within the same marketplace. Think about your interests, hobbies and passions because you can create income based on that.
For example some of my interests are: internet marketing, writing, nutrition, body-mind connection, lifestyle, politics and current affairs. I can drill these down to be more targeted to a particular audience. For example, “writing” is too broad. However, “writing children’s books” will attract website visitors who are interested in that specific topic.
The second step will be to create a website based on your chosen niche. I’ll point you in the right direction – keep reading.
A Business Website For Long Term Success
It is possible to make extra money via the internet without having your own website. However, the chances for success increase when you take the extra step of buying your own domain name (around $14 yearly). The website becomes your piece of cyber real estate, where you can control and scale your business.
These days you don’t need to be a web designer to get a functional website up and running as long as you have access to appropriate training and constructive feedback, help and support.
If you have never made a website or did so long ago, I made a video on how these days you will be able to set up the basic foundation of a new website in less than a minute. Watch this short video on a related post. It will open in a new window.
The site doesn’t have to be beautiful. I have a friend whose first website looked awful, but that didn’t stop him from making a lot of money with it – because he offered something valuable that people wanted.
Difference Between Motivated Action and Inspired Action
Motivated action stems from a desire to obtain or achieve something that we don’t have yet. It means we are willing to be self-disciplined in our approach to creating the desired result.
The first step of course is to set goals. Many people believe that being motivated is crucial otherwise it is difficult to take action. It’s great to be motivated, for sure. It helps us to reach for our goals more readily. Though I’ve learned that motivation comes and goes. Instead, replace the word “motivation” in your vocabulary with the word “self-discipline”. Do what is necessary even when you don’t feel motivated.
Inspired action is the key that opens the door to the successful creation of anything. Motivation and self-discipline will get you started but letting yourself be open to receive inspiration and act on it is what underpins creativity and success. You’ll feel the difference when this happens, and you’ll see it in your results.
Inspired action requires no self-discipline, only faith in yourself. The most effective action therefore is ‘inspired’ action, which means wild horses cannot stop you. This does not mean you should wait for inspiration before doing anything.
Set goals, make decisions, take focused action towards your goals even when your motivation is low. Your inspiration is revealed and developed when you are doing the work as part of the creative process.
When taking inspired action, you will know it, because you will be in the flow and the ‘doing’ will feel easy and natural, time will pass quickly and you will think, “it’s not so hard after all”.
Making mistakes is part of the learning journey. I won’t pretend it’s always smooth sailing. Sometimes it might feel like pushing an elephant uphill. The challenge is there to teach you to grow.
Be open to the learning experience, continue to improve and you will reach the point of taking ‘inspired’ actions without effort.
