Blogging Vs Internet Marketing
I just realized that I am quite lucky as I got the combination of both a blogger's experience and so called internet guru status. I was just back from a workshop and I thought I could share this experience with you guys in hopes to give you some ideas how it feels like.
When I first started my journey to Internet Marketing which I was exposed to about 1 year ago, I really never thought of what niche I should go for. While trying to figure out what I was really passionate about, I decided to setup a blog to talk about my experience about my online business.
I seriously NEVER once expected I would be serious about it where I am today because I was taught to only do article marketing at that time. But for some reason I was addicted to blogging because I noticed traffic kept coming to my blog as I blog more.
Slowly as times go by, I had some success from my blogging efforts so I decided to come out my first blog product. To be real honest that product was not that successful but I did get sales from creating that product and funniest part that product was created purely because my students were having trouble blogging. In that product, it was filled with tons of video tutorials and I even gave out free video tutorials.
After that experience I realized money can actually be made from telling people my own experience in blogging and I was shocked! At that moment I had experience both a nice income from both the product and blogging income.
Based on feedback obtained from customers and students, there were huge demand for detailed instruction guides of what I do so I decided to update my first product but a friend of mine stopped me from doing that and ask me to create a new product instead which became my latest product in my blog.
That product was seriously a major upgrade of the first product and I shared so much in it and then I think I updated more then what I at first thought was possible.
Then after that because of my success from that project, I was suddenly labeled as a "guru". Seriously it's not a nice name, I would rather people called me an expert or trainer then a guru. Because gurus do not care about people but trainsers and experts do.
I maybe young now and even though I may looked successful but what I can tell you that I am now more stress then ever because I know my formula to success and I am only left few months more to make $ 50,000. My goal is to reach $ 100,000 by this year and I wont stop until I am there. I think having a strong goal is really important and I really got to thank Ewen Chia today who created a great workshop that has reminded me me again that we just got to keep things simple and duplicate that again and again.
