So many things that are easy when you are an experienced internet marketer – such as buying a domain name, getting it hosted, designing a website the easy way really fast, setting up a home page and download page and an autoresponder – are completely alien for most of us when we start our journey to becoming internet marketers.
Internet marketing for beginners can be confusing. We can so easily become overwhelmed by complex information and not even get started. We learn about pay per click and optimizing websites for search engines and navigation. We agonize over keywords. We learn about writing articles and back-linking strategies, list building and product launches.
We go off and explore a whole range of different business models – affiliate marketing, drop shipping, blogging, information products. We fret about payments systems, merchant accounts, what kind of web design platforms, copy writing. We explore social media, podcasts and video…
Before we know it, a load of time has passed, we haven’t even got a website up, absolutely no sales and we’re getting very low and overwhelmed.
It can be very different.
What is the secret? Actually there are TWO – probably guessed already: keep it simple, and keep going till you have implemented.
And the way to do that is to go for ONE simple course that explains all the steps – and keep going till you have a website up that is making a few dollars in sales.
This is about getting started, taking action and actually going through the whole process from the beginning to getting sales.
It is not about learning all you need to know before you start. It’s about starting and getting results, learning from your experience and testing what you have done.
It’s not about setting up the perfect website right out of the gate. It’s about practice and improvement.
It’s not about getting floods of traffic from day one – it’s about discovering which ways of doing things attract traffic, doing more of what gets results THEN adding in more methods.
It’s not about creating the perfect product and waiting for everyone to buy. It’s about testing what the market gaps are, what customers are really looking for and THEN creating round your customers.
It’s not about telling, It’s about listening and learning. It’s about researching and understanding your niche and customers, learning from them, really getting to know what they want, and developing a good relationship with them.
That way you build a business for the long-term that will be valuable, whether you sell or grow it to as large as you want it to be.
