I'm new to IM and was wondering if you could provide me with some advice as I heard this is the best forum to find successful Internet Marketers. My initial goal is to earn $2000 per month consistently every month so that I can quit my day job and focus solely on IM to eventually earn more while remaining my own boss. At the moment I make that sort of money after tax in a sales job where I need to cold call businesses and sell them services at around $7000 per sale. I'm not doing badly and earn commission but I need to be in charge of my own destiny. I don't like the idea of having someone that can fire me at any time and can control what I do with my time 10 hours a day.
I want to focus on affiliate marketing within the IM market. I also heard the fastest way to succeed is to find a successful mentor who has already followed the steps I want and need to take and model what they actually do to achieve very similar results.
So my questions are:
1- Where can I find a mentor that has attained those sort of results and beyond and is willing to give me advice and let me model them?
2- Who are the most successful internet marketers within the affiliate IM market at the moment in the world?
3- What are the best books or other sources of information to learn how to be successful with affiliate marketing?
I looked around and I found MLM opportunities within affiliate marketing including MOBE (My Online Business Education) and SFM (Six Figure Mentors). I know they would be motivated to train people because they would make commission out of it but on the other hand there are monthly fees and you can only sell their products.
I really need to become my own boss and will put in the time to learn the right skills and take action. I just need to learn from the right source / person and be consistent.
I appreciate you might get asked this a lot but if you could please take the time to tell me what you believe is the right direction to achieve my goals with IM that would be great!
Thanks in advance!
