The goal of any online business owner is to make money.
They travel different paths to achieve this goal for their websites. Just as long as they keep their eye on the prize, it doesn’t matter what methods or tactics they employ.
If you’re earning more than enough to cover the costs of running your website, then consider yourself successful!
On the other side of the coin are people who are struggling to turn a profit from their websites. To be fair, building a profit-generating site is no walk in the park. For them to not get sidetracked from their main goal (which is what’s keeping them from breaking through to success), they need attention to detail, organization skills, and commitment.
