The amount of money you can earn is measured by how fast you learn internet marketing plus the amount of value you or your business can create.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” - Abraham Lincoln
I am going to share with you how to tweak your daily activities and double your income generation power instantly.
But one thing we got to clear first before talking about how to increase the productivity.
Otherwise, these insider weapons will hurt you rather than help you.
It is because most people work on efficiency to achieve effectiveness.
So it is a very dangerous to teach you how to increase your productivity (efficiency) without knowing if you are working on your effectiveness.
If you don’t have a right target to reach, then increasing productivity is like slamming on the gas paddle of your automobile without taking care of your driving wheel.
Sure you are arriving faster at…somewhere.
Most internet marketers are leaning the ladder against the WRONG wall to create the internet lifestyle.
They jump on the ‘hottest’ traffic generation method at the time (but different guru is selling different ‘hottest’ method at a given time. so you can guess how many people are following the wrong target.)
No one can get to the right place simply by climbing faster on the ladder by leaning to a WRONG wall.
First, we have to make sure we are hitting the RIGHT TARGET (set the direction right is effectiveness) when comes to the productivity game.
Please check up your target by using the The Goal Setting Worksheet for Internet Marketers.
Now, we can talk about how to boost income by increase our productivity.
For any goal to reach, it is simply a matter of reverse engineering the goal back to a set of actions.
Once you can know that set of actions (or you can say a blueprint), then it is a matter of time to complete those actions and achieve that goal.
Let’s say our goal is to create a million dollar net income in 12 months.
The next step is to find out the correct set of actions to take in order to achieve this goal.
Let’s examine the ways to achieve this goal.
We can sell a domain name (yeah there is big company out there would spend a million to buy a domain), a website (well think about how much a site like Facebook, or YouTube worth), making money with adsense(create tons of sites), selling info product, doing live / online seminar, making joint ventures or licensing deals….the ways to make a million dollar net income in 12 months is endless.
Next after we decide the vehicle to get that one million, we have to look for a proven plan to make use of that vehicle…a plan that someone has done it before to use that vehicle to achieve our goal (i.e. a million dollar net income in 12 months).
Most of the time, this is the sticking point that turns people off.
People either could not breakthrough the research and learning phase, or they could not implement the ideas as fast as they can.
Here are 5 internet marketing tools for you to breakthrough the sticking points and to boost your income.
#1. Speed reading tool
To come up with a best set of actions to follow, we need to do extensive research.
In order to accelerate the research process, we can train ourselves to double or triple our reading speed.
It is hard to believe we can do that…within 30 second. I know because I did not believe I could have that improvement neither. (But keep reading…)
And that limiting belief is the exact reason why most people keep the reading speed at around 150 words per minute. It is not the physical constraint that hold us back. It is the mental constraint that stops us to read faster.

(WARNING: it is easy to double your reading speed. You can shorten your research time in half to find the right mentor or blueprint to help you to reach your goal. Always be cautious to work on your effectiveness after gaining efficiency.)
#2. Double speed listening
There are many trainings, books come in the MP3 audio format or the Audible audiobook format. Leverage your commute time to training yourself with new knowledge or skills by listening to those audio training. iPhone or iPod has a powerful double speed 2x function when listening to an audiobook.
By taking advantage of this feature, we can finish listening a WHOLE BOOK (about 300+ pages) within 4 hours. And iPhone / iPod has a position remembering feature to pick up the spot where you leave off last time. I find it is a best way to absorb a new book quickly within a day.
(Extra tips: we can turn any normal MP3 into an audiobook format at iPhone or iPod by simply changing the imported audio at iTunes > music > right click the MP3 > Get Info > Options > Media Kinds > Audiobook. But if you don’t have the Apple gadget, you can download the QuickTime. See the next secret weapon.)
#3. Speed Up Video Training
What about video training? In additional to scanning the content by skipping from spot to spot, we can double the speed to go through the whole video…using QuickTime.
Here is the drill to turn on the acceleration:
QuickTime > Window > AV Control > Playback Speed > 2x or 3x
You can select 2.5x or 3x to push for a much higher speed. Most people would not handle that pace at first.
But after staying the speed for a while, then scale down to 2x. You will find it is more ‘natural’ to watch at 2x speed now.)
#4. Task management tool
Do what you do best, and outsource the rest." – Peter Drucker
Most entrepreneur would have attempted to do EVERYTHING themselves in their business. They work and work and work more IN the business rather than ON the business.
If you read Michael Gerber’s E-Myth, you probably know you should create systems in your business like doing a franchise business.
Find employees, partners, or contractors to help you to doing the things you are not good at or hate to do by following a system. You can either pay them or barter with them.
You will speed up your productivity by building your expertise in one special area.
By focusing your time and energy on building a single money making skill, you will create yourself a sustainable advantage in your competition and make more money.
Producteev is a tool that I find very helpful to manage my tasks by labeling different priorities and categories. And I can assign each individual task to a person to handle.
Using it I can free up my mind to focus on those important tasks that yield the maximum return in my business.
#5. Speed up content creation
How to write a piece of article without lifting a finger to type?
Here are two secret weapon: DragonDictate and Google Voice.
Both these applications use the voice recognition technology to translate your speech into writing.
Even better is DragonDictate and Google Voice have smartphone apps created. That means you can use your smartphone to ‘write’ just by talking.
You can create a blog post while driving, lying on bed, or jogging in the morning. It is like you can create content almost anywhere now. The sky is the limit.
Are you struggling to get the internet lifestyle income? No matter how hard you try, you still don’t get to the money making goal you wanted to achieve?
If so, probably you are leaning the ladder against a WRONG wall.
But if you have the right action plan to ‘climb’, it is easy to create the income you want.
I have been struggling to create fast income in the past few years. After I discovered and worked on this money making action plan, I can consistently generate fast buying traffic and income whenever I want.
