Learning how to get started in internet marketing is a lot like constructing a building. When I first started out on the path to learn internet marketing, I was totally unsure if it was something that really existed or if it was just a network of scams that promised riches while being false hope.
When you are constructing a structure the three main pieces to the puzzle are your Blueprint #1, your construction Materials # 2, and your labor # 3. You can’t build a skyscraper without one of these key components. There are other key factors, however the above 3 components can get you up and running and making a profit while the other factors fall into place.
The Blueprint is the most important item to have when learning how to get started in internet marketing, hands down, end of story. I recently took series of business process improvement classes and one of the things they said was this ” You can put a good worker in a bad process and the bad process will win every time” It is so true. No matter how hard you work, if your process is poor so will be your results. Having a poor process in the Internet Marketing biz can be completely avoided, but is all to common. When you are starting out, “you don’t know what you don’t know” Therefore, you don’t know how to create a good process.
So.. how do you learn to follow a good process?
This is the section where I am going to tell you something that you don’t want to hear. The statistics don’t lie, people that buy a program to learn internet marketing have much greater success rate than those that don’t. That is a loaded statistic however, because you have to find a good program, meant for beginners, and you have to complete it. If you can do that, you will make money.
When you are learning how to get started in internet marketing there are a lot of materials that you will come in contact with and use. If you get involved with a good Blueprint they will take you hand in hand and show you everything that you need to know. Don’t pay for your materials right away. In other words it is completely possible to make money online without spending any. Let me say that again..It is completely possible to make money online without spending any.. I make money every day and don’t spend a dime on hosting, traffic, domain names, etc. You simply don’t need to. A good program will show how to market without cost. Once you get good at the free techniques then you can move to the not so free ones, but only after you are making money.
Plan to spend at least 10 hours a week on your business when you are first starting up. There will be a lot of learning to do while you are following your blueprint and it will take time to wrap your head around some of the concepts. I usually work around 10 to 15 hours a week on my business and the time flys, I love it. Once you start seeing the profits roll in it becomes unbelievably addictive!
