Getting Help To Build Your Business

In the world of Internet marketing, unfortunately there are some
unethical money-hungry con artists ready to prey on your ignorance.
They know you’re new, and they know you won’t realize you’ve been
suckered until it’s too late.

So how does a newcomer to Internet marketing safeguard his or her
pockets from the greedy, self-indulgent scams of an unscrupulous
marketer?  First, you want to do a bit of background research.

If you land on a page where someone has recommended a course or
tool that you feel will help accelerate your Internet marketing
earnings, don’t buy on impulse.  You might regret it later and have
to ask for a refund, or absorb the cost if no guarantee is offered.

Google can be your friend here. Type that marketer’s name into the
search engines and see if there are any negative reports. But
beware!  One of the most common affiliate pre-pitches is to promote
a product by using the “scam” keyword approach initially and then
build the product up with the detailed review to make a sale for
themselves.

You may see about 5 page’s worth of links if you type in
[marketer's name] and scam, but that doesn’t necessarily mean
they’re real scam accounts. Always read the pages with care.

You also need to know that practically every marketer has a
disgruntled customer.  Some people get angry if their download link
doesn’t work and they don’t get a response within 30 minutes, late
on a Sunday night. Others intentionally try to sabotage the
competition by posting false negative reviews online.

You should be able to find at least as much positive endorsements
as you do bad ones.  If not, it might be best to exercise caution.

Never rely on a marketer’s own claims alone to make your buying
decision.  And if you find them in a forum, don’t think that just
because they have the highest post count, it means they’re the best
marketer.

Get personal recommendations from other marketers or customers
whenever possible.  If you want to find out who has the best
affiliate marketing guide, for example, then you can ask around in
a forum to find out. A recommendation from a marketer you already
trust can usually be counted on, because if they provide you with a
poor product recommendation, it tarnishes their own reputation, too.

Watch your inbox for another marketing tip real soon, and good luck
with your online marketing efforts!

The absolute best way to earn money online…

The Absolute Best Way to Earn Money Online
When I started back in 2006, I was trying to find the best way to earn money online. I was looking for quick-fixes, magic bullets and shortcuts.

I fell for the get-rich quick schemes and everything else internet marketers had to offer. Original Post: The Absolute Best Way to Earn Money Online

The truth of the matter is that there is no magic bullet. There is no tactic that will skyrocket you to stardom and put thousands of dollars into your bank account.

However, there is a best way to earn money online, and in this article we’ll take a look at what that is. This is something I’ve learned from personal experience.

I’ve spent years falling flat on my face.

Another One Bites the Dust
As some of you might remember, I have a wager going on with my father. Back in 2008 I said that within 10 years (so by 2018) the New York Times would only have a digital version of its newspaper. My father said that it would take longer for print to be replaced by major publications. Original Post: Another One Bites the Dust… Read More

Make Money Online in 2012

 

 

 

The Laptop Lifestyle? 6 years on

man-with-notebook-02Well would you believe it?  It’s 6 years this month since I first ventured into learning about Internet marketing. It was October 2009 that I made my first visit to the O2 Centre in London to listen to Andrew Reynolds’ Entrepreneurs Bootcamp where the lineup of speakers  included Armand Morin,Simon Coulson,Adam Ginsberg (eBay Megastar),Tom Hua, Brett McFall , Pat Mesiti and Andy Harrington.

In a hurry? Go here to do in less than 6 weeks what took my 6 years! Done For You Kickstart.

The previous 25 years I have been working very long hours running my own taxi business which meant myself and four other drivers transporting hospital patients for their dialysis treatment every day six days a week, working on average 12 hours per day.  I had been doing this particular contract for the previous 10 years and would probably still be doing it now if the recession hadn’t come along and they decided to use volunteer drivers instead of paid ones.

So what was an ex taxi business owner doing at the London O2 Centre,  I’d been receiving Andrew Reynolds monthly Modules called “Cash On Demand”. Each Paperback Module arrived each month and was devoured in about 30 mins and then I had to wait another month for the next one, each time the anticipation and excitement used to grow as I wondered what gems I was going to learn that would take me one step closer to living that Laptop Lifestyle.

Cash On Demand System…

Andrew Reynolds Cash on DemandI remember that each module all seemed to start with the words now imagine you’re on your own boat and running your Internet Business from anywhere in the world imagine how that would feel, the first 10 pages or so it seemed, of each new module were spent talking about what it would be like rather than telling you how to do it!  So there I was 3 years ago picturing hard what it would be like, so hard in fact I could smell the sea air! and really believed that within the next 12 months I would be working from my home office in my pyjamas.

After about 4 or 5 months of this I remember one module that came up with the idea that someone had designed a plastic case that fitted around a banana to stop it getting bruised when he took it to work!?  I gave him a second chance as it was shortly after this that I got a card in the post from Andrew  inviting me to the O2 centre for the 2009 Boot Camp, all we had to do to qualify for a ticket was make a contribution of 149 to  the Make-A-Wish Foundation that helps children that are very ill, that was a good enough reason for me,  I could go and build on my Internet Marketing education and  help children at the same time!  So off I went on the train to London and booked in to one of the grottiest hotels in London,  just across the road from the really nice one that all the well established marketers were staying in.

 

The Step By Step Way To Get Rich “Click”

 

WarpSpeedI really enjoyed the experience of being surrounded by several thousand people that were all interested in learning about Internet Marketing it made a pleasant change from talking to family members who got a glazed look in their eyes before telling you they don’t want hear about Internet marketing it’s so boring!  They just don’t understand.  At the O2 centre I met quite a few people that wanted to talk about Internet marketing all the time, bliss.  One of the speakers at the 2009 Bootcamp was Brett McFall and I was soon enrolled in his “Warpspeed” Course and we were all to be known as Warpies.  This course consisted of 2 DVD’s that were sent from Australia every month for 12 months and cost some ridiculous amount of money that I am too ashamed to admit to and you didn’t even get to speak to him!

 

YourNetBiz

YourNetBizThe next thing to catch my eye was called “My Internet Business” that became known as “YourNeBiz”,  they said you could make $2000 per sale and that people would be falling over themselves to buy these replicated websites that were packed with PLR (Private Label Rights, meaning you could rebrand them and put your own name to them),  you could use them to both educate yourself and resell, what they didn’t tell you was that it was nigh on impossible to get anybody to join it because there was so much competition from guys that were earning $10,000 and $20,000 per month but were spending $15,000 of that on advertising and unless you had $15,000 per month to spend on advertising too, you had no chance of competing with them especially as most of them are using PPC (pay per click) at the time which didn’t require any SEO skills.

 

The Warrior Forum…

 

The Warrior ForumIt was about this time that I discovered the Warrior Forum and this was full of lots of shiny objects that were ever so cheap in comparison, so I started gathering them thinking they would come in handy in the future! Some of them have, but many of them haven’t, all of this served to increase my knowledge of how Internet marketing worked but it also led to information overload and it was only after meeting Alex Jeffreys and joining one of his courses that I realised the best approach was not to be someone that was buying everything and continuously stuck in education mode, but one who was doing the selling and as Alex always says, “don’t look at what’s being sold but look at how they are selling it”.

 

Alex Jeffreys Marketing With You…

Alex JeffreysI joined Alex Jeffreys Coaching Academy in August 2012 which contains lots of upto date information in the training area under such titles as Forward To Marketing, Funnel Focus Formula, Membership Coaching (to help you set up your own Membership site) and Operation WSO (Warrior Special Offers). But the main benefit of being part of the Coaching Academy is that we get direct access to Alex Jeffreys once a week where he answers all your questions, gets you past your sticking points and points you in the right direction. It also helps us to remain focused as each week in the private Facebook Group we put down the next three things we’re going to do that week so that we are accountable to actually get on and do it. But in reality I did not make much progress until I linked up with Patric Chan, wish I’d met him 6 years ago, it would have saved a lot of time and Frustration, Click Here For Free Help.

So despite not making the progress that I had hoped for in the last three years my dream of giving up the day job seems closer now that I have an approachable Mentor  in the form of Patric Chan and I hope you will follow my journey as I take his advice towards that goal. Please feel free to leave comments at the end of this post and tell me about your journey and how it’s going for you and what has been your “turning point”.

 

Beware of Sharketers

How To Avoid Information Overload

If you haven’t yet heard this phrase, information overload, you will soon – because it happens to the majority of new Internet information overloadMarketers at some time or another.  To be able to avoid information overload you need to first understand what it is.

Information overload is when you simply have too much to learn – so much that you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and more confused than before you had help. It happens easily with this industry because there are so many options you have – an endless array of opportunities.  You can be a product owner and an affiliate at the same time.

You can use article marketing, social marketing, or pay per click campaigns.  You’re new, you may not know much about any of the above, and suddenly you’re thrust into an environment where everyone’s opinions differ and you don’t know where to start!

The first thing to do is calm down and take some of the pressure off of yourself. All of this information you need to digest isn’t going anywhere.  It’s going to be here tonight, next week, and a year from now so this is how to avoid information overload.

Don’t invest in a guide about Google AdWords, another about Squidoo, and one about Private Label Rights all at the same time. There’s an old saying, “How do you eat an elephant?” Answer: One bite at a time. Internet marketing is your elephant and you have to choose whether you want to start with the ear, the foot, or the tail section first.

It doesn’t matter if you start out learning about social marketing before you know the ropes of article marketing, for example. The point is that you’re educating yourself and putting that knowledge to work for you.  As long as you start somewhere and then actually apply that insight to a method of making money, you’re on the road to success! Execution is everything.

However, there are a few things that will not make sense to learn before others. If you have no money to start with, then don’t buy (or even download for free) a guide about pay per click marketing. Stay focused and start with something you can do. You also may not want a 5000-page guide to everything all at once. You’ll probably want to invest in small, bite-sized chunks of information that you can digest and utilize before moving on. Want to start with a free blog? Get a blog guide. Launch a blog.

Then move on to whatever interests you next, such as product creation or selling on eBay – whatever floats your boat.  The key is to not get stuck by having too much information and too many choices at once, so I hope you now have a good idea how to avoid information overload.
