In my search for understanding internet marketing, I have inadvertently spent 95% of my time being sold to. If I ask for a question about which app, plugin, or process works for X Y or Z, I'm sold to. Reviews are paid for. The websites I end up landing on are optimized as they are run by affiliates. I'm an honest, no BS, old school business owner, and for me that's frustrating.
I'll give you an example. I signed up here and got an email to join something called the war forum. Then I googled whether or not that was a worthwhile investment for a beginner, and read incredibly conflicting information, the majority of which was that it wasn't, and that, ironically, it was permeated by marketing attempts.
I'm just looking for pointers from someone who enjoys helping others reach their pinnacle. I won't bore you with my personal problems, but I have a family that I'm trying to support to the best of my ability, and I'm just trying to get some direction in terms of where I can start without getting that information from a biased perspective. It's been overwhelming. My ability to do physical work is limited and I feel that internet marketing might be a really good fit for me.
If anyone is interested in helping by simply giving some advice I would really and very sincerely appreciate the gesture. Thanks to you all, have a wonderful day.
