I couldn’t even begin to guess how many internet marketing products are available online these days, lets just say ‘a lot’. If you really want to succeed at your online business do yourself a favor and don’t become a professional ‘buyer’ buying one great product after another and never actually doing anything. If you want to succeed online, find a course or product that will teach you the basics, provide you with a solid foundation on which to build your business and then just…build.
You see so many people get analysis paralysis. They think that they have to know how to do everything before they can even start. No. That’s the totally wrong approach for two main reasons.
For one thing, it’ll cost you a fortune if you keep buying one course on SEO and another on PPC, instead concentrate on the basics, enough to actually start making money online, than you can learn more as you go.
Another reason why the perpetual online student will never succeed if they insist on knowing everything before they start, is they’ll never start. Things change quickly online, you’ll never know it all and even if you could there will be something new tomorrow. Better to get the foundations in place: how to get a lot of targeted traffic to your website, and learn other things from that point on.
No matter what you do online, whether you’re an affiliate marketer or you’re selling your own product the one universal thing that you will need is website traffic. And not just any traffic either, targeted traffic (targeted means that the people who come to your website are actually interested in the products or services you are selling and might actually buy something).
Your very first task online should be to learn how to get all the targeted traffic you need to your website in the quickest and least expensive method possible. For that reason I would discourage anyone who is just starting out with using PPC. There is a steep learning curve and you will pay out a lot of money while you’re learning with little or no money coming back in. If you feel that you have to us PPC, wait until you’re actually making money and you can plow some of your profits back into your business.
It’s far too easy, and costly, to be enticed by all the great promises you’ll hear online. And it’s true, there are a lot of people who make more in a month online than most people make in a year, and it’s true that you can do that too, but, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to build up to that point. It will take time but if you keep jumping from one product to another you won’t get any where fast.
If you want a successful online business you have to be willing to spend some time and money to learn, and use, the skills you need. You will want to invest in a few carefully chosen internet marketing products, just make sure that you are looking for an education and not just a way to avoid any work.
