I have just entered the world of Internet Marketing. They tell you to fire your boss, quit your job, and started earning lots of money.
Since I started about 2 months ago I have had at least 200 emails a day all trying to provide information and promotions leading to a very confused newbie especially when he is nearing the edge of 60 years.
I was overloaded with information that comes left, right and center.
I was given a sort of free ebook. The word freebie set my heart afire and I begin to download all kinds of ebooks, software, etc until my hard disk was bursting to its rims a few times.
I have to copy all my downloads on DVDs before they run out of space. This happened a few times.
Information overload was one important keyword. Lack of sleep was another keyword – learning about email marketing, autoresponders, affiliates marketing, joint ventures, giveaways, viral marketing, spams, scams, AdWords, SEO, web designs, web tools, ebooks which you downloaded with a different name from the same ebooks you just downloaded the day before, one time offers, and the very important time-sensitive offer of sale of ebook which increases at a rate of 5 or 10 cents per minute, etc, etc, ad nausea.
It is just as well that I did not quit my job because I have been spending something like $200+ per month. All I get in return was a cheque of $9.
After 2 months I find that I am getting a bit more focused. I closed my ears to instant money-making machines and try to concentrate on a few things like writing an ebook, designing a simple website, doing some affiliate marketing, and building slowly a mail list.
I hope that I am doing the right thing. But I am slowly learning and I intend to give it a try. Anyone who reads this blog please wish me luck and offer some free advice. There’s that four-letter word again free
Wish me Success!
