Online Marketing Secret Number Sixteen:
It really is that simple!
The most common mistake of beginning internet marketers isn’t a failure to invest in their business, incorrect targeting of keywords, not building a list, or anything remotely like that.
The most common mistake of beginners is making things harder than they have to be.
Many of the marketers who have come before have experienced certain hardships, or written guides about their early days, hoping to help you avoid some of the same struggles. Some of these reports are even free.
And yet, time and again, you’ll find people whose first step online seems to be either doing what every successful marketer tells them they shouldn’t do or trying to re-invent the wheel.
Here’s what you can do instead:
Choose your focus for an online business the same way you would if you were going to buy a $150,000 franchise.
Browse around and find a leader who you’re able to understand and follow. Try some of the techniques they suggest for free in articles, in their free newsletters, or in their blogs. When you find tips that consistently work, follow their lead. Some have consulting or training programs. Others you can meet in person at seminars.
Get their wisdom. Follow it to the letter. Make a small profit and roll that profit back into more profits. Then do it again.
It may seem simplistic, but every marketer who isn’t making money has made this mistake on some level.
