Getting Started

When Will You Finally Succeed as an Internet Marketer?

What obstacles have been holding you back from achieving the kind of success you’ve always dreamed about? Do you even know what’s hurting your financial success? Not everyone does.

Some new marketers spin their wheels indefinitely, running out of money until one day they quit trying and leave the Internet Marketing business frustrated and broke – re-entering the workforce and getting a J-O-B to support their families. As a senior this is return to the workforce is not always possible.

It is time to slow down, reassess your strategy and move cautiously from here on out. The first thing you have to do is quit attempting any or all get rich quick schemes.

It’s designed to make a quick buck for the seller, not to truly help you develop a substantial business of your own. Anything that offers too good to be true promises (six figures in 24 hours with no list, no experience and no start-up funds) is a red flag for you.

Don’t take the bait. I want you to prepare for this journey, because if it’s done right, then it can be a fantastically rewarding time of your life – whether you’re 18 and just out of high school or a senior citizen entering retirement.

If you’re still employed, don’t quit your job until your Internet Marketing business is off the ground and flourishing. That way you won’t be dealing with the stress of money and frantically grasping at straws (this is when you’re most likely to fall prey to Internet Marketing scams).

Now that you have a safety net – of a steady paycheck – you’ll be able to slowly and cautiously make decisions for your future online business endeavors. I want you to take time to evaluate the different options and compare them to your strengths.

Do you love working one on one with people? A mentoring or coaching business might suit you. Are you fond of writing and research? Consider info product development where you create a whole line of eBooks.

Once you have your ideas set in stone, scout out the best way to learn how to do it. When you do this, don’t just read sales copy and hit the order button – these guys have a lot of experience convincing you to buy. Instead, research the seller’s reputation. Research real reviews (not where an affiliate link is listed) to see if the product is worthy of your investment. And never buy more than you can afford.

As you learn, take baby steps in building your business the right way. Don’t rush it too fast or you may skip an important component that could make or break your online success. As a senior you have the time to take it slowly however don’t waste your money chasing empty promises.

Super Affiliates Affiliate Product Review

For many seniors we are looking to augment our retirement income with a monthly stream that allows us to live the same lifestyle that we had as full time wage earners. Finding the right direction to go to achieve this is often very confusing. We spend time going down this path then another path only to find they all lead to failure.

You’ve always wanted to earn money while staying at home but you’ve been hesitant to get into any products because you don’t know what’s good and what’s not. At this stage in your life you don’t want to have the financial responsibility for an inventory. That’s why you need to get started with affiliate marketing. It’s okay if you don’t even know what that means because Ewen Chia makes it easy to learn with his Super Affiliates course.

Maybe you’ve already tried selling products online or to your friends and family or even gone as far as going door to door. You believed in the product, shelled out the cost of the start up kit and enthusiastically got started – and ended up going nowhere financially.

The money you wanted to make didn’t happen and unlike the product promised, it wasn’t easy at all! It turned out to be the hardest work you’d ever done and you didn’t even see that much, if any, in profits. That’s why affiliate marketing is the best way to make money online.

Affiliate marketing is great for beginners because it enables you not to have to worry about keeping a warehouse full of products, the cost of shipping or a high overhead. Instead, you make money by promoting products online for other people.

You promote – they pay! Unlike selling products where you order a consultant kit or a shipment of goods and have to wait for them to arrive, with this course, you get the materials you need to give you the knowledge to start right away.

It doesn’t matter if the only thing you know about computers is how to push the button to power it up, you can still succeed. Don’t worry about the ins and outs of having to know a lot about the Internet.

You won’t have to know that because you’ll be shown step by step right from the start – including the blueprint to set up a website. Don’t worry that it’ll cost you a life savings to get started in affiliate marketing – it doesn’t.

Maybe you’re not a beginner. Maybe you’ve had some experience with affiliate marketing in the past, but you were left frustrated because once you ordered the information, you needed some help but there was no one on the other end you could turn to.

That’s what sets Ewen Chia’s Super Affiliates course apart from any other affiliate marketing tutorial. You don’t simply pay for the information and then you’re on your own. You’ll get step-by-step monthly guidance until you’re ready to make success happen on your own.

Finding a Starting Point

To learn a new skill there always has to be a staring point. As it happens some starting points are better than others and hindsight is a wonderful thing. For me this learning of Internet marketing has been a bit like climbing straight up a mountain. The hindsight that I now have would point me in answering the following questions first.

  1. 1. What is the web site going to be about and how do you figure this out?
  2. 2. You need a domain name – what is a domain name?
  3. 3. Your site must be “hosted”. What does this mean and how do you find a reliable, helpful company to host your site?
  4. 4. You need somewhere to put the content you are going to discuss. A content management system – what is this and how do you choose?
  5. 5. The content – how will it be created? Will you do it yourself or will you outsource it?
  6. 6. Outsourcing – what will you let someone else help you with – the writing or the tech stuff or maybe both?
  7. 7. Images – oh yes that would be nice. People love images. Where do find images? How do load them on your site?
  8. 8. How do make money from all this work that you are doing?

To this end Michael Jones recently produced a wonderful video program. There are 39 videos across 8 modules. He very carefully and deliberately teaches you everything you need to know from the first step to the last step of getting up and running on line.

The eight modules cover:

#1 Choosing a niche

#2 Picking your product

#3 Tech talk: Site setup

#4 Using an autoresponder

#5 Copywriting 101

#6 Driving free traffic

#7 Capture leads/track stats

#8 Get paid – take it to the next level

I truly think this is great place for any one just starting to get a good understanding of how to put things together. Don’t be put off by the rather rambunctious sales page. The actual pace and structure of the videos is delivered in a very down to earth, easy to follow manner. Looking over someone’s shoulder is a great way to learn and you can play the videos over and over again. If I have any criticism to make I found the printed material that accompanies the course a bit weak. However at the end of each module he does a live demonstration video on how to carry out the preceding steps. I highly recommend Affiliate Code.
