Today i would like to focus on why so many people struggle with internet marketing, but not just with marketing, but also with making money online.
See a few years back when i first started my online venture, i didnt even know where to start.
I was like a chicken with his head cut off.
I read so many ebooks and watched all these videos and all i really got out of it was the same techniques and wasted so much money.
Now, im not saying i didnt learn anything because i did, matter of fact if it wasnt for alot of these learning materials, i wouldn’t be where I’m at today in my own success.
See, all the training material i was learning from just confused me.
This is why. I would read an ebook from joe shmoe and i would follow everything in that book, then i would open another book on the same subject and it would be giving me the same techniques but it would have me implement things differently than the joe shmoe book.
The other problem was, i would read the books and watch these videos and i would never pursue what the material was teaching me. In other words i was not taking action.
My problem was, i was to busy checking my emails to see if i got any sales, then i would get drawn into someone elses free training material and there i went again back into studying and confusing myself.
So heres how i stopped this madness.
I stuck with one person i really liked.
For instance, i wanted to learn more about getting traffic to my sites from twitter.
So i really liked a guy named John Alanis and his teachings. So i watched his videos and really learned what he was talking about.
Then i took action and started to build my twitter following.
I then started to see results.
Trust me, i was excited.
So the moral of this story is this.
It doesnt matter if your a newbie to marketing or a veteran, everyone goes through these tough phases in there marketing career but my advice to you is this.
Stop anticipating a sale, instead dont worry about it.
After a while sales will just start to pour in.
So first find something that you want to learn. Whether it be article marketing, blogging, etc.
Then find a person that you like and you can trust.
Follow what they do.
I learned most of these techniques for free, so there should really be no need for you to spend hundreds of dollars on material and products.
Stick with that certain person and technique until you can master that technique.
Just remember, taking action is the most important step.
If you dont take the action then you just wasted days reading and studying the materials.
Dont program jump.
Jumping from person to person or program to program will just confuse you and will waste your time.
I know its easy to do, trust me, i used to do the same thing myself.
Sometimes peoples articles and emails can be eye catching and will just suck you write in to a bottomless money pit, and this is why most people dont take action.
They get side tracked on their main purpose. To implement the methods they have learned.
Learn to do these methods the right way, stop reading half the book and think you know it all.
I was bad at that. I would read a book or watch a video and get the just of it and thought, i already know this stuff.
That was my worst mistake. The ending of training material is usually where the best kept secrets are at.
I hope this has helped you folks a little in understanding what i went through and the things i was doing wrong.
I will talk more about the right things im doing now in future posts.
So stick around and take some action today.
To Your Success
