When presented with an entrepreneur success story, everyone wants proof.
I know I did, before starting my own business as an entrepreneur on the Web.
Therefore, I hereby submit my own proof, on this page, that my way of building a small and growing business really works ... and that it does not require special skills.
Here is a list of what you will get here:
I am revealing the following information, some of it private, to prove to you that my entrepreneur success story is true, both on line and off.
The "secret" behind my own entrepreneur success story is that I do everything in my power to make myself known to the world , and be recognized as someone who can help, really help people, in my chosen fields of expertise.
I will explain what I mean by "everything in your power", in a moment.
But, first, let me reveal to you how I did in 2008, two years after starting from nothing.
My Entrepreneurship Web Site Ranking
According to Alexa.com, Top-Web-Entrepreneurs-Plan-It.com ranks well within the topmost 1 million sites (on top of more than 100 million other sites one the Web). In other words, my Web site ranks in the top 1% of all Web sites in the world!
The actual rank, on any given day, varies because of varying competition. But, my site always ranks in the top 3%, more often than not in the top 1%. I only began building this site in December 2005.
Here is a graph of the traffic going through my site. Note the increasing trend!
My Weather Web Site Ranking
Alexa.com ranks Weather-In-Canada-Observer.com in the top 2 million sites or, if you prefer, in the top 2% on the Web. I only began building this one in January 2007!
My Ham Radio Web Site Ranking
Alexa.com already ranks HamRadioSecrets.com in the top 3% on the Web.
And I only began writing content for this site in January 2009!
My three Web sites occupy an enviable position on the Web ... by design, not by chance, as I will explain in a moment.
These three sites alone make my entrepreneur success story, a true story. But, there's more.
Making A Name For Myself
My Web sites (above), my articles, my videos on YouTube, my presence in Google search results, word-of-mouth
If you search for "Claude Jollet" on Google (my name between quotes to look for exact matches only), Google will report that more than 10,000 pages mention "Claude Jollet" on the Web!
Now, I have easily less than one hundred pages, with my name on them, in all my Web sites! The thousands of others, bearing my name, are on Web sites other than mine.
By the way, mine is not the only entrepreneur success story of its kind. You can read some others here.
I have published only eight (8) articles. People publish my articles, or quote me, on their Web site, because they feel that my information is useful to their visitors. They mention me as their source, both for legal reasons, and "Netiquette".
My seven (7) videos on YouTube were viewed more than 10,000 times! You can check for yourself by going to the YouTube.com site, and doing a search using my video publisher identification "WebEntrepreneursID" (case sensitive).
Of course, money plays a big role in my entrepreneur success story. As you read on, keep in mind that I only began building my business Web sites two years ago!
Most small businesses don't make any money in the first year or two ... if they survive at all!
Think of what you could do with ever increasing popularity, like mine. Think your business, any business, would thrive?
I use my Web sites to build my reputation.
I expose my Web site traffic to useful information, which I share freely. However, I have to pay for the overhead, even if it's very small.
The more I give away useful info on my sites, the more people know about me, and get to know me. Consequently, I get an ever increasing number of requests for one-on-one help.
Part of my entrepreneur success story is that I earn indirect income from my Web site traffic ...
I am also fully bilingual. My mother tongue is French. English is my second language. Thus, I can cater to a larger number of people than a unilingual entrepreneur can.
In fact, I am in the process of building another business Web site, in French this time. Its mission is to bring traffic to our B&B, which my wife and I recently opened (late summer 2007).
All told, my "indirect" income far exceeds the "direct" income from my Web sites.
Thousands of other, ordinary but determined and resourceful people, have just as much success. In fact, many have more success than me. Here is verifiable proof.
To a certain extent, your own " entrepreneur success story " will depend on what you have to offer people, and what the demand is for it. Oh! Yes, you are going to have to work for those results!:) But, you will be working at your own pace, tour own way.
One sure fire way to ensure that you also succeed as an entrepreneur, is to use the same process that I use. It's called Site Build It!. Under the expert guidance of other successful entrepreneurs, I can ...
All without any special knowledge, other than the one you have acquired in your own field of expertise.
Site Build It! takes care of all the cumbersome technicalities, in the background, while you take care of business, your own business, in the foreground.
Like thousands of others, you too can discover that there is a demand for your knowledge and know-how. Site Build It! gives you the means to find out for certain, and to market it most profitably.
At this rate, (at the time of writing this on Jan 01, 2010), I can expect my three sites to easily generate, over the next twelve months ...
Many internet entrepreneurs do much better than this, depending, in part, on their field of expertise, and how well they apply the SBI! process. Some tell their own success story here.
