Following on from my recent post about the 5 mistakes that people make when they try to make money online, I thought I’d expand this a little bit further. Two of the points I covered were failing to plan and also buying too many tools. I’ve actually spoken to people who have told me that they have bought Product X Y and Z but they don’t know how to use them!
At this point I usually ask why the hell they bought them then. Invariably the reply is “because X recommended it”. Let’s just assume that people only recommend tools and products that work for them. (come on go with me on this!!) That doesn’t actually mean that they will work for someone else. I can pretty much guarantee it if someone recommends a tool that genuinely works for them then they have a plan in place about how they use it and more importantly they have experience.
Do you remember back when you first started to ride a bike? Did your parents go out and buy you a Lance Armstrong replica race bike or did they buy you a small bike with training wheels?? Now why do you think that was? Obviously they knew you’d never learn to handle the race bike until you had the basic riding skills in place.
Internet marketing is the same! Learn the basics first then when you have mastered those then you can start to buy tools.
Right now that I’ve identified the problems what can I do to help you?
Since the post last week I’ve been trying to think of a way that will help people master the basics without making all the common mistakes and spending too much money . Obviously It would be really hypocritical of me to say “Don’t buy all the rubbish products on the market buy mine” So I’ve decided to take a gamble…
Up to yesterday I was selling a book called the “Commonsense Guide to Profitable Websites” I am now going to give this away for free. But that’s not all, the book is a basic primer for creating profitable websites but there is so much more to learn that I couldn’t fit into it’s 40 pages. I am going to produce a collection of free guides, videos and e-books which I will send out on a regular basis (probably every 10 days to 2 weeks)
