One of the number one reasons many people fail and Internet marketing is because of the many offers that flood their e-mail inbox on a daily basis. These e-mails can be like a sharp object cutting through your concentration while trying to focus on your projects. Statistics show that people take 15 minutes or more to regain their focus after becoming distracted. It kind of puts a dark cloud on how effective multi-tasking is supposed to be, does not it?
The key to successful marketing, is to be your own guru and not a consumer. I must say be your own guru, I do not mean going around the Internet trying to show off, but you have to start selling your own products and start branding yourself as an expert in your market. After this takes place, the unlimited opportunities will present themselves to you.
The first is to build credibility online. Once you have created your own product, your credibility immediately begins to increase. No matter if it's a low-cost product or even a free product, you simply have to get something out there with your name on it and then promote it like crazy all over the Internet.
If you continue to do this, your name will be spread all over the Internet very quickly. Before you know it, you will be considered a celebrity in your niche. This is how many successful gurus have gotten where they are today because they stayed focused and constantly promote themselves and their products.
