Internet Marketing! A Realistic View.

August 19th, 2009 by Rob Willis Leave a reply »

2009-08-19_1717Internet Marketing is an interesting concept that so many of us struggle with.

For every successfull Internet Marketer on the Web, there are hundreds of other wanna-be’s who struggle to make any sales what so ever.

So many of us are trying to figure out what we are doing wrong. We go from program to program, buying the next lot of promises from the “Marketing Guru’s”, only to find our hard drives getting full of stuff that once again, didn’t give us our break.

So what is it that seperates the men from the boy’s (so to speak)? I would hazard to say it is their staying power. As I mentioned, many times we try a new program for a few weeks, and then after little of no success we are out looking for something else.

I would venture to say, that if we were to commit ourselves to focus on one program for a minimum of six months, we might just start to see the results we are so desperate to acheive.

I am writtinf this Blog, not onky for there marketers out there that are struggling to succeed, but also for myself. I need to take my own advice & become laser focused on the task at hand.

I have spent literally thousands of pounds (dollars) on Internet marketing programs and courses, many of which I have never even looked at. Each time hoping that this will be the key to my success. But alas, each time I get disappointed once again and find that my marketing attempts slip further from my grasp.

In some ways I think that maybe I need a mentor who will guide me along and keep me accountable. I think if I had someone to help me I would be able to focus. But again, Montors cost money, and that is something I do not have at the moment.

I think in some ways I am using that as an excuse. I read somewhere once that we are our own greatest critic, and we must become accountable to ourselves.

The best way I have found to be accountable to myself is to keep a journal. In my Journal, I write down my goals and my dreams, and a to to list of what I plan to acomplish each day. A schedule you could say.

This way I can monitor exactly where I am at and move forward to my marketing goals.

So in a nutshell, I see one of the main ingredients to successful Internet Marketing as being focused and commited to one project or program at a time for a period of at least six months.

So before you go out and spend another dollar on yet another product, go back and look at what you have on you hard drive and bookshelf and see if you can focus your energies and get that to working.

    The key to successful marketing on the internet is to drive traffic to your website.

    I have been intrigued by the idea of internet marketing for years, but it has taken me a long time to overcome all the gumption traps involved in actually getting started.

    Hi Rob,

    Your right about how many of us jump from product to product looking for the “magic” make money now formula. These products don’t exist. We each of us have to figure out a strategy to build our business and this takes time.

    As the saying goes “Patience is a virtue” and this is something we all need to take to heart. Follow a plan and it will happen.

    Hey Rob,

    I totally agree with you, everything that I have failed at online in the past, is all because I didn’t stick at it for long enough.

    Thankfully I’m on the right path now, armed with a game plan that I stick to at all times, or most of the time anyway. The main thing is, if I find myself going off track, I just give myself a good talking to, and get back to my plan.

    I’m also not just writing by blog for the people, I’m writing my blog for me too, as like you say Rob, we need to take our own advice.

    I’ll leave you with one of my favourite quotes

    “The best way to succeed in this world is to act on the advice you give to others”

    Take care,
