Learn Internet Marketing
That's right you have to learn internet marketing it does not come natural. It's not like riding a bike you have to keep learning week after week, month after month and year after year. Why is this? Well, because the internet is subject to change minute by minute!
Worse yet, it takes a couple of four letter words nobody likes and those are WORK and TIME. When I first began my internet marketing journey I was so clueless, not that I know it all now, but I've come a long way, at that time all I had ever done was check emails.
You will also need a lot of persistence and be able to withstand disappointment and discouragement along with the ability to keep going no matter what.
There are many other things you need to be a successful internet marketer, but if you are willing to learn, do the work, put in the time, be persistent and get back up no matter how many times you're knocked down then it will happen.
Working from home and being your own boss is great make no mistake about it. However, there is a steep learning curve, especially in the beginning.
The biggest mistake is info overload and info from the wrong people. Too many people fall for the make money fast scams and get caught up in black hat, which is a mistake. Yes, you may make more money faster, but it can come crashing down just as fast.
Remember as you learn internet marketing to learn from those who have the respect of their peers, are well liked and who have a good reputation and keep it that way.
I have a few that I trust and they are Ed Dale of the Thirty Day Challenge, Travis Sago aka Bum Marketer, Amy Bass of the Niche Blogger and Steve Wagenheim of the Niche Toolkit an amazing internet marketer who tells it exactly like it is.
I have learned what I know from a combination of these four and still do. However, I've been with the Niche Blogger longer than any of them due to Amy's style of teaching.
