Do you know what it is? What is it that everyone and their moms keep talking about, but don’t know scrap about?
I’m about to tell you in a second, so hold on to your horses.
Internet marketing, How to make money online, Affiliate marketing, Blogging…
You’ve probably heard something about it; it’s hard NOT to find someone telling you how to do it. But if you’re serious, WHO do you listen to? And more importantly how do you do it (earn money online)? These are some of the questions I asked myself when I got into this business. There were so many people out there doing/talking about the same, that I was confused and I thought it was a pile of crap. But it wasn’t until I got that first email saying I made a commission. And keep getting more and more emails, that looked like this. It was an accomplishment! I am not trying to brag to you guys, it’s just a good feeling when you make that first dime online.
You Don’t Believe It Until you See It
I knew it was possible; I believed if there were so many people talking about it, then there had to be a small percentage of them really doing it. If you believe that you can do something you will do it. If you don’t believe it, then you won’t. I don’t want to come at you all philosophical or anything, but in this game it is important to have a little hope that you’re going to actually do it. So, start by believing you will make the amount that you set for yourself.
Find the Mentor That’s Doing What You Want to Do
If there’s something you want to do, there’s probably someone out there already doing it. The way I found out about all of this was through Tim Ferriss. From there I started connecting with people online and going to different forums and reading a whole bunch of other people’s blogs. Look for forums that relate to your “stuff;” email bloggers that you like and ask them anything you need help with. Not everyone will be helpful but some people will be.
Learn, then Go to Work
It took me a year to get to where I am and I’m still not exactly doing it big like some marketers. But I know that they didn’t do it fast either, so I keep working and I keep learning. It’s really easy LEARNING what you need to do. It’s the DOING part that people are scared of/lazy about.
Don’t be that guy. If you want to do something big, it’s not going to be easy (there I go again, being all philosophical on you) but what the heck, it’s the truth and some won’t like it and some will. Now let me ask you, who are you going to be?
Who’s helped you succeed or get big results with your online business? Do they have any online products you’ve bought from them? What about free stuff you can recommend for newbies that don’t have money to spend?
