Who Do You Listen To?
When you first start out as an Internet marketer or a blogger, there is so much you think you have to learn. Blogging, websites, WordPress, plugins, HTML, niches, social media, marketing, auto responders, product creation…etc. etc. (bet that got your head spinning!!) So who do you listen to? Do you have a plan?
I have been blogging, adswapping, tweeting, facebooking, AND Skyping and a few “coaching” courses and yes, I have built up some great relationships, but it’s not paying the bills…yet.
There I said it…YET!
Because I have a plan.
I have recently joined a membership site from some really cool guys in the UK who are actually making an awesome living online. (NOT in the MMO niche, in fact they have various niches) And they love what they are doing!! It is one of the best sites I have ever seen! Now you may or may not have heard of them, so……
I would like to present to you…Drum Roll please…The Two Neils and Andy Brown!!!! YAY!!
Since I have joined Internet Marketing Review, I have really got my focus back. Focusing on the things that are crucial to my business and not focusing on the busy work a lot of guru’s and teachers tell their students to do. Focusing on my business, not theirs!
The site also has a forum where I can go and ask questions and not feel like a dork for asking such daft (new word I learned) questions. I get answers almost immediately from people who have been there and done that! (Know what was my first question? What’s my PLAN??) And blogging, facebooking, tweeting, adswapping, etc was NOT the answer!! Surprised? NOT!
The other folks who are in this membership site are real professional information marketers who are making money and authors who have #1 books (not just ebooks) who started out just like you and me! And they answer my questions like “what do I do now?” or “how does this sound?” There are also new folks in there, too. Just starting out. Also asking questions that get answered by professionals! Yay!
You know what else is cool? They DON’T have to tell people they are ETHICAL because their actions show it!
So what do I get? Honesty. Not the hyped up “oh you are so wonderful” that a lot of forums have. You know what I mean, those forums where the moderators just pump you up and tell you it’s OK and wonderful when it’s really crap!! Internet Marketing Review forum tells me if it’s really good or if it needs a little fixing! They also tell me how to fix it and why. Like “change this here, because…” or “write it like this” or “try this and test it” and they tell me the next step! (But let’s not go on to Step 2 until you have step 1 down. Gotta focus on the basics first!)
No hype, no BS. Just answers to my questions and a really cool forum. There is no information overload, no information to promote only them and no pushing me to do “busy work” that only gets the other “coaches” more traffic and sales! If you have ever been in a coaching class, you know what I mean….”Here let me give you this book that you can build your list with and it has all my links in it, so the traffic you get from building your list goes to MY website!” (Side note…not everyone does that, John Thornhills Masterclass is one of the best and he’s really helpful and giving, but I have seen quite a few others!)
Wanna know what else I get? A CD every month that has some of the best teaching I have ever heard. I just got one this week that totally blew me away!! I have already listened to it twice and seriously, I am amazed! What I am learning I can apply to my business immediately!
I also get a real-live-printed-out-sent-to-me-snail-mail newsletter that gives me so much more information. Information that works and is being used as I write this! Not ebooks that were made in 2007! New info that’s good for 2010 and beyond!
And how do I get this? I joined Internet Marketing Review. They have a 2 month trial. It’s less than 10 pounds (that’s UK money) How cool is that?
I mean, ask a coaching guru who their successful students are. Ask who has made it online because of their teaching. You would be surprised.
If you are a seasoned marketer and you have found that all the crap on the internet is just giving Internet Marketing a bad name and you want to see how it’s done without all the doo-doo or if you are new and looking for that “something” to get your online business focused and growing, take a look at Internet Marketing Review. Could be the answer to your prayers!!
If you are already a member of Internet Marketing Review or want to know more about it, leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts and experiences. And, let me know….who do you listen to? I would really like to know!
Take care and God Bless!!
p.s. And please, please, please remember…be careful who you listen to!
