What’s New At Mr Marketer
Anyone who has been dropping by on a regular basis will know that I’m not focused on hyping up myself or my skills – the plain fact is that there are so many opportunities in Internet Marketing, so many courses, tools, business models, gurus – well, frankly, its tough to figure out what’s real and what’s, well, not suger coating it – what’s BS. I’m not some guru but more likely just like you – trying to figure out my own way through the spaghetti strands that some people call Internet Marketing, meet some good people, have fun, create some value for others and maybe make make some money while doing it…
There are a few things that are already clear to me that its worth mentioning – if you approach Internet Marketing with a desperate mindset, looking to instantly pay that credit card or car payment bill with some push button magic ‘trick’ then you are going to get burnt. Its like the old Poker adage – if you don’t know who the patsy is at the table…its YOU! The same goes for internet marketing…if you are looking for that new trick – then you are setting yourself to be the next patsy of some unscrupulous IM marketer. If you find yourself getting frustrated or desperate, try to enjoy the ride 🙂
But here is where it becomes fun – if you see all the gurus, methods, courses, tools as opportunities to be explored, learnt from and leveraged and if you put them all together your own way then you can achieve your goals and have a great time while doing it. If you see Internet Marketing as a route to a destination then you won’t enjoy the process of getting there – a shame because it never really ends right? The real fun is getting there while being true to yourself….right?
For example – I dable in affiliate marketing – but only when I find a product, course or person that delivers. My real passion is creating products…it just plain appeals to my sense of adding value and being creative.
The whole process of creating products – from the first ‘A ha’ idea – all the way through to writing the copy for the sales page and engaging with customers – the whole thing just appeals to me.
Thats what I mean about finding your own way. Maybe you are an awesome product creator, or an awesome affiliate marketer, or awesome product launch manager or whatever…
If you are new to internet marketing – there are literally hundreds of opportunities open to you (it really can be a real blast and can be very fulfilling!)
…just be careful to steer clear of the folks who are just keen to separate you from your money – my own guide is to learn from people who have a) done it successfully before me and b) who are focused first on adding value before taking my cash.
I honestly believe if we focus on having a good time and adding value then the cash side will come easier and faster….what do you think?
Here’s a quick video taking you through what’s new at Mr Marketer – one of which is my getting some awesome (and super inexpensive) coaching from Dean Holland – on Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge.
