How To Choose The Best Internet Marketing Coach
There are many ways to make money online and the shortcut to creating your Internet Income is to follow the guidance from an Internet Marketing Coach. Here we present you 8 simple ways to find a real online marketing coach.
1. The first factor to consider is to ask how much is the Internet marketing coach making money online, and if so, how much?
There is a huge difference for someone making a few thousands and another one making millions of dollars, each year. An internet coach that teaches you strategies learnt from a book is never as useful as one that shows you real experience of making lots of money online, so it’s not a “textbook” coach that you need.
If you intend to make US$100,000 online, then find a Coach who makes at least US$1,000,000 from his or her internet business.
2. If an Internet coach claims that he has made a lot money online, can he prove it?
Did the Coach show you his or her online income statement? On the Internet, beware of a lot of bogus claims. It just takes some simple editing software to change the digits on a cheque or on a Clickbank statement.
How do you check for this claim then? Visit the website and understand the nature of business this person is operating. If he sells a software for US$20 and gets 1,000 sales each month (totalling to US$20,000 in income), but spends over US$10,000 in Google AdWords advertising. Then his income derived will be just US$10,000 and then you need to minus the percentage of affiliate commissions he is paying (and for ebooks and digital softwares, it can be as high as 75%). Therefore, even if his affiliate commissions are 50%, the nett income this person earns is just about US$5,000 right?
3. Is the coach practising what he teaches?
Many self-proclaimed Internet marketing coaches are “overnight” gurus who have made some money by selling ebooks or making money information.
Even if an Internet coach can prove he is making money online, find out what is his main source of income. Most of the Internet marketing coaches’ main income is by selling making money information, and then by teaching. And if if they claim you can make millions of dollars without selling anything, or even without doing any hard work, then you need to be ultra careful.
If you want to sell physical products, and if the coach cannot prove he has sold physical products successfully, how can he be qualified to teach you to do so?
4. Search for the keyword “Internet marketing coach” or “Internet marketing coaching” in Google or Yahoo.
These keywords represent this industry and their top rankings are eyed on by millions of Internet marketing coaches globally and are therefore extremely competitive.
If this coach’s website cannot be found on page 1 of the search results, but he claims he can teach you how to be on top of search engines, how can he be qualified to do so?
I’m sure you have seen some websites claiming they can teach you SEO, when their sites can only be found in sponsored links (meaning they are probably teaching you search engine advertising and not free search engine optimization techniques).
But don’t get me wrong. Being able to be on top of search engines for these keywords doesn’t guarantee sales (if you target the wrong keywords), but it gives you the chance to get free advertising online to your target prospects if you locate the correct search keywords.
5. What kind of coaching support is the coach providing you?
Due to limited resources, most of them can offer you only email support, which is the most basic level of support. How can 1 person support hundreds of students at one time?
You should find someone, or rather a reputable Internet marketing company, who has perfected an online support system, such as online members’ area with uploaded course materials, online ticket system for asking and answering questions, plus support from the technical team.
When and how soon will your Internet Business Coach reply to your questions? Who answers your questions? An administrative or sales staff will not have the proper qualification nor experience to teach you how to get top rankings in search engines.
6. Can the coach offer you regional support?
For instance, if you want to target the Asian markets? Does the coach have regional physical offices in other countries? If you intend to sell to the Chinese, then you need to translate your website pages into Chinese, and target local search engines in China and Hong Kong. Does your Internet Coach have Chinese rankings in top China search engines such as Baidu and Yahoo.com.cn?
7. Has the coach groomed any successful Internet entrepreneurs, in selling different types of products, services and information?
If yes, how successful they are? Has any of their coaching participants made millions of dollars online? If the students that are coached, end up only reselling the Coach’s ebooks or softwares, then something must be wrong!
8. Is this coaching program the ONLY one you need to attend?
Is the coach teaching you most of the things you need to learn to make money online during the seminar or coaching? Or is he only interested in upselling you to other more expensive seminars, programs or websites? We have seen many cases of entrepreneurs signing for a simple US$1,000 internet conference and leaving the 3 days conference with additional ebooks and videos purchase of US$5,000. In total, you would have ended up paying US$6,000 right?
Using the tips above, you can look forward to hiring an efficient real Internet Marketing Coach that can guide you towards creating your income online.
