Newbie desiring an IM course. Recommendations, please?

by Cheri411 17 replies
Hello. I am totally new to Internet Marketing and am looking for a course that can help me build a solid foundation in this industry. I realize the Warrior Forum is a wealth of information, but with all that information, it's challenging to stay focused and really know where to begin. I struggle with the technical side of things at times, and really would desire a practical, thorough course designed for newbies as myself.

Site Build It, Wealthy Affiliate, Location Rebel and Gain Higher Ground, are a few courses I've looked into. Please, what other reputable programs are there that can help me build an online business?

Thank you!

    Do you have any particular direction you want to go such as CPA, affiliate offers, product creation, content creation, etc. or are you just looking for a good general foundation? The recommendations may be different depending on your answer.

      Cheri, good advice from Mark here.

      A lot of people will fling course suggestions at you. Fact is, though, a good course for one person may not be a good course for another. It depends on you. Your strengths. Your weaknesses. Your likes and your dislikes.

      Hold onto your money for now. Instead of spending money, spent time. Spend time looking around WF and exploring your options. Just dip into subjects (like blogging, PPC, and so forth). See if you can figure out which business models match your abilities and interests.

      Once you know that? Either go it alone, as many newbies do, or hop onto a decent course (on the subject you feel is right for you).

      As of now, 'just a good general foundation'. As far as what IM train to jump on...CPA, affiliate, etc. I'm still too ignorant to make such a decision. Thus, gaining knowledge to make an educated decision. If I could do something 'newbie friendly'. Is there such a thing? It would be so rewarding to consistently earn income, no matter how small, from an online endeavor.

      Yes this poster makes a good point. What area of IM are you planning to go into? There is a wide range. It could be CPA, email marketing, FBA, ecommerce, etc. Each area requires certain knowledge and there probably is no such thing as a course that can teach you everything.

    Tom Addams has some strong advice there; you need to find the right area for you and spend time feeling it out.

    Certain paths work for certain people and others will prefer a different direction. Courses may bottleneck your visibility, but can also inspire you when you see others who have taken the journey before.

    If you are curious about good places to find courses, then I would primarily suggest:
    Creative Live (live workshops and talks on a variety of subjects, including self-motivated businesses),
    Creative Bloq (frequently discount online courses),
    and either Udemy (for more courses) or Neil Patel (for general marketing/business practice).

    Do take Tom's advice though and don't narrow yourself too early on. If/when you do feel the need for courses and inspiration, Creative Live is a great place to start.
    Good luck!

    If you have enough budget, get a reputable mentor who have done it coaching program and guide will be faster than pouring money into courses especially you will be easily information overload which usually happen to newbie, like me in the past lol. Courses is good but however with mentor is better as they will guide you but the cons for coaching program is with good coaching program usually quite costly unless you can find someone who just started coaching program AND he really have done it and success in term of example reach maybe $5,000/month CONSTANTLY from affiliate income. Another cons is you have do research on the coach also, I believe you don't want to waste your money on those so called "guru".

    If you have limited budget, then I will recommend choose one online income method course, focus and become specialize in that field. Result come in how fast depend how committed you are and how focus you are. I used to side track a lot when I just started because all the killer headlines in different online income methods is so tempting to try out. lol

    If no money, then go for dropshipping can start with $0 which is how I started my journey. Post it in your country mobile market app or other classified website you should be able to get sales within 1 or 2 days. Use the profit get the course you want to learn, example affiliate marketing.

    Hope this help. Wish you all the best!

    For the technical side of things YouTube is your best friend. There's a TON of tutorials on there you can watch.
