Need a mentor!

by 312rahmanj 22 replies
Hello, I was trying to make money online ever since I became unemployed two years ago. I did lot of research about affliate marketing, but I just don't know where to begin. I asked many people for help, but no one was willing to. I learned from reading a lot that the best way to learn something is to get a mentor. I am searching for someone that is willing to mentor me please. Everyone was a beginner once so everyone has the experience of how frustrating it can be. Please help me get a grip of Internet marketing.

    You are at a very good place Rahman. Warrior Forum has abundance of information. Just read as much as you can, within a month you will feel much confident. Its better than payin hundreds of dollars to a person.
    Whats better is to start a Network Marketin Business and take the on job training. In MLM your sponsor earns when you earn, so his only motive is to see you Rich. He whole-hearted supports you and imparts all the knowledge. This way you will get the guidance you are lookin for (in the form of some person teaching you personally) and you will also be building your online business. So in few months time you will be a lot more confident and would be having a business to apply the knowledge you gained.
    Wish you luck!

    Stay as far away from MLM as you can. All you'll learn is how to scam people and teach them how to further scam more people. Nobody actually ever sells anything, except the "opportunity" to be milked for your money -- AKA "the business".

    Then it's your business to find other suckers to make your mentor richer. And teach those suckers how to find more suckers to make you richer. And it continues down the line.

    If you want to make money online, cut back to the basics.

    Setup a blog. Then install Adsense.

    Write your ass off. Then tell other sites that you've written your ass off.

    Doesn't matter what topic. As long as other people are interested in it, just write your ass off.

    While you're writing your ass off, start learning how to implement a newsletter.

    Keep going until you've hit a decent income with Adsense. Then move onto learning how to interact with your subscribers.

    AdSense don't care about skillsets or grammar. Just write. Then write some more. Then promote it.

    School of hard knocks. Stay away from MLM.

    He doesn't want a dime.

    Oh yeah, stay away from MLM.

      Thanks a lot for giving me your valuable time. I was just about to search for MLM but your comment saved me. Thanks for saving me from scamming people. I will check out your recommendation. Anything else you recommend?

      Very beautifully said about MLM and how it sucks. But I don't agree with you as far as choosing Adsense is concerned. There are better opportunities out there and people have got their adsense accounts banned for no reason whatsoever. So depending on Adsense as your sole income source can be very risky. I advise even you to build up other sources of income while your adsense account is still intact and doing ok.

        I think he was just saying that Adsense is a good place to START - where he could earn some money while also learning about Internet Marketing as a whole - because it is easy to just write some blog content and then stick some Adsense ads up there, but you are right that it should not be the sole source of income as you never know when Google will decide to nix your Adsense account.

        By the way, to the OP: You said you became unemployed 2 years ago, (I hope you are not still unemployed), so I hope you have some money for things like electricity, a domain, hosting, and possibly an autoresponder and some paid advertising.

          Thank you so much to everyone for using your valuable time to give me these awesome tips. Tell you the truth, since two years I been searching on my own and the concept felt so hard to learn. I listen to brain Tracy a lot and he once said, "you don't live long enough to learn it all by yourself. You have to learn from an expert." I think finding a mentor is the best way to learn. A mentor ,not a scammer. I am willing to pay a true mentor because time is our most precious treasur, I wouldn't want someone to give it to me at no cost. So I am willing to pay but only to a true mentor who has a heart to help someone out of passion and not to just rip a beginner off. Everyone was once at my place so I'm sure we all know how it feels to be here.

      MLM is awesome. I've been in Amway for years and have used my "planning to retire in 5 years" sales pitch to lure all those young and naive people into making me lots and lots of money. Do you want to buy some xs energy drinks? ;D*

    Pick one product or system and learn how to promote it (and yourself without quitting and looking for something else).

    If you do plan to use adsense, make sure that it's not your primary income source. Advertising should only be something that adds to your 'overall' income.

    Just setup a blog, and write. Target as many keywords as you can, and get AdSense on the site.

    Learn how to get traffic to it after that. You'll be well on the way.

    This is one of the simplest ways to make money online and the way most beginners should start.

    No need to worry about niche selection, picking the right product or offer, how to write persuasive content, collecting emails, building links, the list goes on.

    Use your analytics and Adsense data as your mentor. Learn what it means and what you're doing through it, then venture out into true affiliate marketing. You'll make a lot more.

    How much is a livable income where you live? $$$ each month?

    Edit: I'm not pimping an Adsense product. Just re-read it and it sounds like it.

    I don't think it's a bad idea to pay someone to mentor you.

    It will cut the learning curve dramatically, and shave off tons of wasted time (and save you from blowing money trying to figure it out).

    Mentors have success blueprints that they can give you.
    Then it comes down to taking massive action and tweaking along the way.

    Find an influencer that is killing it doing what you want to do, follow him for a while and make sure you trust him, and see how you can get his mentorship/coaching.

    A lot of times you can partner with them in their affiliate program or biz opp and get some kind of access to them.

    No point trying to go at it alone when you can get a coach.
    Everyone has a coach. Athletes have coaches. Musicians have coaches. Internet marketers have coaches.

      Sure - they'll 'give' you that right after you pay them thousands of dollars to learn their system.

      It is an oxymoron to use the words 'give' and 'mentor' in the same reference.

    AdSense definitely isn't the best way to make money.

    It's the easiest, though. He said he's stuck.

    AdSense don't require a mentor.

    Ya'll coaches.... lol

    He's asking for a mentor because we all started somewhere.

    He didn't imply he was willing to pay for the training. And nobody is going to give it to him free.

  • Hello 312rahmanj

    You're on the right forum!

    Start with a blog and a FB account, write valuable content on your blog and share in your profile Fb, if you have some money doing a little 'ads and create a squeeze page to create a list.

      That should work.

    Focus on list building...honestly everything else pales in comparison. Building a blog and stuff is all well and good....thats why I create software...for blog owners.

    But sending out an email...makes you money

    Good luck

    IMO it's a lot harder to learn how to build a list than it is to setup a blog and install Adsense.

    He's probably not going to be learning it on his own, considering he said multiple times he's willing to pay -- someone smells blood in the water.

    For people who can't pay, starting a blog and making money with Adsense is the easiest way to get started.

    The blog is still an asset that can be leveraged once he starts learning to build a list.

  • Check out my latest post, it's a free method I still use to this day to generate about $400 a month from Clickbank, within 3 months time.

    The key is always consistency.

    It's not about making money online, it's about financial independence. Having passive income that exceeds your expensive, so you don't have to work for money.

    You do that simply by buying things or creating things, that pay you whether you work or not.

    PASSIVE INCOME > EXPENSES

    If you make that the point of all this, your goals will become crystal clear.

    That is the true secret to wealth. It's not overnight, but it's guaranteed.

    2 years and still calling yourself a beginner?

    If you have not gotten a grip on it in 2 years, then sadly, you probably never will. And, a mentor will not help. You would be better served finding your own path in an online business and seeking out some WSO's, they are a lot cheaper. Do your due diligence because a lot of them are crap, but some are really good.

    Yes....blog, list, on and on...copy/paste...hire a fiverr

    in a dream world where everyone is eager to buy "digital make muny" reports and tee shirts

    //////dream on

    Now...what you could do is actually learn a skill that is salable - graphic design, web design, seo, etc and offer your services to real business people locally

    or IF you have a real interest and experience and knowledge in a particular field you could set up a viable website /blog/or even membership site about that field

    IF you have a "real" site with real content bout something you actually know about (rather than hoping some half baked content from a fiverr gig will work)....why then you might actually get approved for some "real" affiliate networks and "real" affiliate companies
    (not just clickbank junk)


    However what i see a lot of is people with no success floundering around, trying to selll "get rich schemes" to other dreamers....the obvious question is - if it did not work for you why would you try to sell it to someone else

    Of course all of this will actually require some real work and effort and probably some skills
