It’s that time again when I ask one of my online buddies what they would do if they had to start their internet marketing journey again.
Today’s guest is Mr Motivator himself…..
AKA – Terry Conti from www.TerryConti.com
What Would You Do Differently and Why?…..
If I could do it all over again, here are some important messages I want to share so you don’t get caught up and fall into a trap.
I would only buy products I know are reputable and know they will be worth my while.
How to know if a certain products are ACTUALLY A GOOD PRODUCTS?????
Check them out on the Warrior forum. See what others are saying about them before you buy.
The Internet used wisely is a great place to find out just about anything.
- You Tube (good for how to videos)
Just to name a few.
Only buy products knowing they will beneficial to you.
Buy what you NEED!
I’ve wasted so much money buying products I thought were good only to turn out and go THAT’S it?
I already spent the money and to trying to get it back on certain products sometimes no one gets back to you.
Sometimes if someone does get back to you may have to jump through a lot of hoops so be very careful.
There are a lot of products out there where the marketing is so good but the product is SO BAD.
You will lose money!
As stated before…..
Look products up on the Warrior form so you can get a good sense if you’re going to loose your money or not.
And don’t’ forget the Internet is a great place to find out just about anything if you apply yourself.
After you buy a certain amount of quality products…
STOP LEARNING AND START DOING!
Get yourself a mentor and also develop a group of like minded people.
Know there is work to do in this business just like everything else in life!
But the rewards can be so much better than a traditional job or business if you just apply yourself correctly.
I believe the most important thing you can do when starting out is learn to start a blog.
A blog should be a springboard of who YOU ARE online.
And then build a mailing list using your free info product to give away in exchange for an email address.
With a back end paid related product link within your free product.
Get yourself a good auto responder service like Aweber and get the ideas out of your head using a free auto responder service.
It can be quite confusing between using a free service or a paid one.
In the beginning I thought using a free auto responder service would be just as good as using a paid one.
Here’s what I found out so you don’t make the same mistake I did…..
A free auto responder service will most likely have ADVERTISEMENTS surrounding your outgoing e-mail.
So here you are trying to provide Value or recommend something and there are advertisements all over your email.
Ask yourself, is this distracting or what?
There are also other free auto responder services out there that will tell you No Advertisements.
Well you’ve got to ask yourself how good is this company in getting your e-mail through when people opt-in.
What I mean is these free auto responders services…
(With all the spam going on today) are not known in getting your email through.
Because a lot of Internet service providers (Place where people set up their email account) will consider all these opt-in e-mails from unknown autoresponders spam.
So you’ll just be Wasting Your Time working setting up all your e-mail to go out and it Will Never Get Out.
You may very well be setting yourself up to be labeled a SPAMMER right along with the free autoresponder service.
If you are going to set up a business and are serious…do it the right way!
Get yourself a paid WELL KNOWN autoresponder service and you can’t go wrong.
The two best autoresponder services out there are Aweber (which I use) and Get Response.
If you don’t believe me just ask around.
Another thing, (food for thought)…..
Lets say in time you have accumulated a sizable list using a free autoresponder.
And in the future you want to transfer the names and e-mail addresses of your list to another autoresponder service!
Most likely the names and e-mail addresses you have accumulated Will NOT Be Transferable.
So now if you want to go to a premium service…..you’ll have to start all over again building a list.
It just pays to go with a premium autoresponder service Right From The Beginning…..
You’ll save yourself a lot of headaches then!!!
Remember you get What You Pay For as this is very important.
If you get caught up in anything you do in this business, DON’T STAY CAUGHT UP.
Do something about it so you can get through it and move forward.
Forward momentum is key!
Otherwise you are just going to stay in one place for long periods of time, get trapped and most likely end up giving up.
Know there must come a point when the learning stops and the DOING Starts.
Just dive right in and start doing, more learning will happen as you go along.
Confront your fears!
Strive to always move forward…
And you will be pointing yourself in the right direction towards success.
Thank’s sooooo much for that Terry!
As always you gave some really helpful advice there.
Are you a learner or a do-er?
Have you had any bad experiences using a FREE autoresponder service?
