Are you getting all of the information about how to market your business online from your “Mentor?”
You know the drill.
You go to a capture page where you watch this super, awesome video of this successful online marketer and they tell you that if you just get involved with them then they will show you everything that there is to know about marketing your program online.
If you just stick with them and their program, you will almost have a guarantee of online success!
So, you sign up and sure enough, there is a LOT of information that they provide. These folks might even have a training program that you can take advantage of and it has a lot of information that you can actually use, but there is a little bit of a problem when it comes to implementing all of the steps to put it all in motion.
Those difficulties of getting all of this new found information in an organized and coherent manner are real and if you think that successful marketers are giving away all of their information to the newbie crowd, think again.
One source of frustration for many new marketers out there is not only the amount of information that is involved, but haphazard way that it is all put together, but understand that much of the time this is done on purpose. If you don’t need the marketing guru anymore then you could possible run off somewhere else and we just can’t have that!
A lot of marketers will provide information, but there always seems to be something missing – and there is. What is missing is the order in which many of these methods can be utilized.
For example, to generate traffic you are always told to “post your link” in many different places. What you are not told is that many of those places are not interested in you posting a link with an affiliate format to it.
You know, the links that are www.profitmakingmachine.com/id=fred – Fred may post his link everywhere, but I would be willing to bet that many of his links are being “ghosted” by the very sites he is posting to.
Who knows, but for whatever reason many sites do not allow or at least frown upon affiliate structured type links. The solution to fix this is quite simple, you get a unique domain name like fredsprofitmachine.com and you forward it to the profitmakingmachine.com/id=fred site. Problem solved, but this type of information usually isn’t voluntarily offered up by the gurus out there that are “mentoring” you.
So why do online coaches and mentors do this? A few reasons actually.
First, if a successful marketer teaches everything they know to a student the outcome is that the student goes out and becomes a successful marketer and takes a portion of the market that the mentor was working.
Secondly, marketers know that if they have a student then they can probably sell them different programs and tools over a long period of time. The longer the student is kept in the dark the more money can be generated over a long period of time.
Are there exceptions to this rule? Yes, network marketing. Now I know you are sitting there thinking, “Are you kidding me? Is this just a sales pitch for mlm?” Not even close. As a matter of fact, I will have to write about this at a later date because when I get into explaining why the network marketing industry is so good online if it is done right, you are going to scratch your head and probably agree. It’s just a matter of common sense.
So now that you do know – or have some suspicions confirmed – the next step is determining how you can find a mentor that really will show you how to market online and the secret is this (also why we look for good network marketing programs): Find someone that will benefit from teaching you what they know and helping you move to the “next” level. Pretty simple, huh.
So how do you find that type of person? I would love to tell you that it is easy, but it will take a little effort on your part. Since you are here, however, I can tell you that this is exactly what we do with EMSG, we teach people how to market their programs online. There is no charge and you are not obligated to join anything. You can join the All In One Profits program since you will need the tools and is quite affordable ($10 dollars a month!), but you don’t have to.
Just understand that when you are promised training and help you need to perform do your due diligence by asking for student feedback and exactly what you are getting in return for the time you put into it. After all, you can always earn more money, but you can never get your time back. It’s precious, so guard it against those that would steal it!
