The Internet Marketing Mine Field
I’m telling you…they should give Internet marketers battle pay. If this was a war, I’d be a five star general by now. Okay, maybe four stars. If you think I’m being a little dramatic, I’m not. Internet marketing is one of the most difficult things a person can do if he’s not properly trained and doesn’t have the right mindset. This article is going to discuss some of what I consider to be the most important things needed to become a successful Internet marketer. You might want to make note of these.
Let’s start with mindset. One of the most difficult obstacles that many Internet marketers face is disapproval from friends and family. I remember when I first started trying to make a living online. I heard so much negativity, I almost drowned in it. It took me a long time to tune out all the negative vibes. Once I was able to do that, I was able to concentrate fully on my business and proceed to make it the success that it now is.
Then there’s knowledge. Most marketers have no idea what’s involved when it comes to earning a living online. That’s the reason that 95% of them never make a dime. I won’t go through everything but right off the top of my head, a comprehensive marketing education requires excellent skills in writing, advertising, organization and planning. Each of these can be broken down into a number of sub categories, all of which can get quite complex. This knowledge doesn’t come cheap. You’ll either pay for it in dollar bills, getting the best educational resources money can buy, or in your time…combing the Internet for the information.
Finally, there’s money. As much as I hate to say it, the more money you put into your business, the more successful you’re going to be. See, even if you didn’t have the mindset or the knowledge, if you just had an idea of what you wanted to do, al you’d have to do is simply hire people to create and run your business for you. Naturally, that would take a lot of money, but it can be done. Point is, if you can’t afford to have your business run in its entirety, with what funds you do have, you could get some things done for you.
Any one of these things I’ve mentioned can blow up in your face. The wrong mindset, insufficient knowledge, or inadequate funds, can sink your business in a heart beat. That’s why I call Internet marketing a mine field. One wrong step and you’re blown to bits. And let me tell you, I’ve seen plenty of casualties.
So make sure you have these three bases covered. If they are, you’ll have a very good chance of getting through this war with all your body parts intact.
To YOUR Success,
