So the inevitable happened.. laid off most likely permanently and now I'm freaking out. As I look for another job I'd like to give online marketing a try. I know there is a lot of free information in this forum and I will be going through it. Only problem is the amount of information makes me scatter brained!
What I have to get started:
A few marketing courses
Will be hosting with BlueHost
Almost all day while I'm not looking for work.
I have however no real direction. It seems to me $600 will most likely go too fast, might not see anything from all of this.
What would you do with my resources and $600? Thanks in advance.
Here's a very powerful marketing lesson if you recognize and use it.
When I was a kid, everyone on the block washed and waxed their own cars in the driveway at home - even in the winter. On any given weekend day (most everybody worked M-F 8-5) you could drive up and down the neighborhood streets and see hoses, buckets, sponges, a chamois, towels, brushes, portable radios ("transistors") and assorted vacuum cleaner gear littering driveways everywhere.
How often have you tried to promote your services or products to a client only to be knocked back?
Too often, we as business owners, waste time trying to promote products or services that believe are solutions for clients but we fail when they are not accepted or perceived as a good idea.
