You have found the Internet….finally!…congratulations!
There’s just one little problem…
WAY TOO DAMN MUCH INFORMATION!!!
Just like I always say to new students or marketers with a little history under their belts the biggest problem with the Internet is not the lack of information, but rather that there is too much information.
Why is this such a big problem?
Without some sort of Internet marketing experience many “newbies” out there will run from one marketing technique to the next (and usually in a very short period of time) and think that the methods they are using or have been advised to use aren’t working. The truth of the matter is that a majority of the time, ANY and ALL methods used aren’t used consistently enough or long enough.
It’s not just about being overwhelmed by marketing techniques either. If you have ever looked for a business that you might get involved with then you know that there are tons of opportunities online and while some are very good, there are also a few that you should stay away from, but which ones are they?
Fixin’ the Problem
So how do we fix this common problem of too much information and being overwhelmed?
While I’m not going to sit here and advised you on this business or that business (CLICK HERE to see what works for me!) I am going to talk about marketing methods and techniques.
There are a couple of steps that you can take to ensure that you are using a method that has been proven to be effective and can start generating traffic to your website as well as dollars to your bank account!
First, FIND A MENTOR!
Finding someone out there to help you out and show you the ropes is crucial to your over all success. Sure, you can spend a lot of time and figure this stuff out on your own, but why would you do that? Most people have a very limited amount of time and money to spend on building their new businesses and they really need to find ways to be extremely efficient – finding the right person to show you how to build your business is a great first step.
Second, stick to one method and master that technique before moving to anything else.
While this just seems to be common sense, the lure of coming across that one “secret” method that some guru used to create an overnight six-figure income is pretty strong. Besides, sticking with one method can be boring…I mean if you haven’t driven thousands to your website in the first few days it obviously isn’t working, right?
Much of the time it takes quite a few days, even a few weeks before just about any method of marketing will work with a few exceptions. You will want to put a lot of effort into the methods that your mentor suggests before moving on and it may require that you test different variations before you find one that works better than the others.
Just don’t give up. Keep working your technique until you start seeing some results – even small ones – before moving on.
Finding Immediate Results
Is there a way to speed up the results?
Sure, but typically the methods that will help you find quick and even immediate results are not free and can cost quite a bit of money, so unless you have a larger budget available to you then producing results with these techniques may require additional training before you continue.
No matter what, learning how to sift through the mountains of information out there is a fundamental skill that each and every marketer needs to learn if they are going to become successful online.
While there is quite a bit of information out there finding a good mentor, developing a plan of action with a specific marketing technique or two and sticking with that plan is going to be key to your success.
See you at the top!
