Well, I started as a total newbie six years ago. And here's a few things I've learned:
First do the obvious stuff:
1. Get a job - Part time or full time. Get some 8-5pm money coming in.
2. Cut expenses - Reduce your cellphone plan, cut cable, drop subscriptions, etc.
3. Sell stuff - Find stuff you're not using or you don't need and post on ebay/facebook/etsy, etc.
4. Lower your overhead - Sell your car, your house etc. Lower your rent. Take in a roommate. Move in with someone else.
Move closer to work and walk, ride a bike, or take the bus. Negotiate reduced payments with credit cards and student loans, etc.
Treat Internet Marketing like a part time job:
1. Learn how to get the most out of this forum - And here's a great post with tips on how to use the WF:
2. Start learning some basics techniques to drive product sales - Most people start with list building and affiliate marketing, or selling PLR.
3. Put in a few hours daily to learn and test out techniques your learning.
Develop a healthy mindset:
1. Have realistic expectations - Few people get rich in their first 30 days. Give yourself time to learn, grow, fail and get better.
2. Positive mental attitude - Avoid negativity. Don't share your new goals with negative people, even friends or family if they're not supportive.
Feed yourself a few minutes each day with self-help videos and audios. Read encouraging blogs. Speak positive affirmations outloud.
Work on new skills:
1. It's take effort and time - Give yourself that time, and focus on learning skills you like. Youtube, WSOs and Udemy are a great place to start.
2. IM can be a trade - Internet Marketing is a real skillset, which most people don't have. Learn the skills and soon enough you'll get paid like most people don't.
3. Find your niche - Apply your skils to a specific method you like and are becoming good at. Focus on your strengths.
Apply your strengths to one method and monetize that. It's as simple as finding your niche, monetizing that niche, then scaling it up.
Keep it Simple:
1. Avoid Distractions - Once you start learning and having a little bit of success, it's easy to get distracted by every other method out there.
Avoid adding additional methods until you're really profitable at one method.
2. Avoid Complication - Often the more you know tempts you to overthink stuff. Most IM techniques don't have to be complicated, but we tend to make them complicated.
Here's a great post on staying 'in the zone' with your method and not getting bogged down:
Most anyone with ambition, determination and discipline can go from 'broke to banking' with IM. The opportunity is there. It's real. Believe in yourself and don't give up.
Life is short, just go for it.
