So you just started your journey to making money online. Congratulations! It’s an exciting endeavor but, on the other hand, I know you still have many doubts and what ifs.
Here’s a quick tip to ensure your success: find a mentor or a qualified guide.
When I first started online, I was so eager to earn money because I was totally broke. My first impression was it’s easy to make cash within 3-6 months. Prior to that, I worked as an overseas factory worker for six long and lonely years.
I operate machines so I didn’t know anything about creating a website, coding or programming. Heck, I couldn’t even write a coherent paragraph.
My only advantage is that I’m technically inclined so I can understand internet stuff easily.
I had high hopes. Little did I know that I’m on false optimism.
The problem was – I didn’t know how and where to start. I didn’t have any basic internet marketing skill. I didn’t have any idea what really works and what will not.
I didn’t have a mentor or anyone whom I could seek good advice.
To make the story short, I was confused and lost focus. I wander from one money making program to another. I earned nothing but a ton of frustrations. I wanted to leave internet marketing.
In desperation, I accepted a local 8-5 job offered by a friend which unfortunately put me into more troubles.
So when you’re starting it’s best to find a mentor or someone who will teach you the basics.
If you want to be sure about your online money making venture, find a real online marketer in your locality but be sure though that he/she is actually making money. For what can you learn from a beginner like you or someone who calls himself internet marketer but isn’t really making any money yet?
Most successful online marketers are willing to give practical advices or even guide you especially during your first steps.
Avoid traditional network marketers who claim they do online business when what they really do is promote their network/business opportunities on Facebook. More so if they try to recruit you. Run away from them at all cost.
While it’s true that there are thousands of blogs and info sites out there about how to start making money online, the problem is – most are selling something. They’re only too happy to tell you their so-called secret if you buy their get-rich-quick products. Most often than not, what they really tell you are mostly half truths or regurgitated information that doesn’t work anymore, if not total craps.
If you want to start a serious online business or you’re planning to expand your existing brick and mortar business online, find a professional online marketer who can coach or mentor you.
Nowadays, you can find online professionals who offer their digital marketing services at reasonable prices.
