    1. Hang out here to learn.
    2. Take action - you won't learn everything ever and won't learn the most important lessons until you do!
    3. Fail Fast - you will fail, so do it fast, learn from the failure and move on.

    1. Understand it IS a business, and treat it like one. Not a hobby, not a "sounds neat", not an experiment - a business.

    2. Remember everything you post online (including here) creates an impression of who you are. Over time, those impressions add up and have a bigger impact on your success than most people realize.

    3. Be yourself, have fun, and laugh all the way to the virtual bank. This bit of advice is directly related to how well you follow the two tips above.

    All the best,
    Michael

      HEHEHEHEHEE

      1) change your picture no one is going to take you seriously if you have that kind of photo.

      2) pick a topic you have a passion about buy a war room membership and get any and all info you can surrounding your chosen niche/passion.

      3) Apply what you learn throw up a squeeze page give away a free gift of value build a list
      don't start building a list until you have a foundation so you are able to provide content to your subscribers.

      As you become more comfortable create a product try to learn more and more every day and get a mentor if you don't have one.

      That is just a start.

    The only practical advice I would give you is TAKE ACTION. Once you take action, you will fail. Fail fast like ramprof said. Once you fail, you will be keen to learn new strategies and even correct your mistakes. You will test the new strategies out and see results. Some will work, some won't. Whichever works, you will rinse and repeat them. You will gain desired results. thereafter, you will learn new tactics and strategies to grow your business as result. You will implement these strategies and see results.

    What matters is only results.

    That's how you make money online. That's how everyone does here and everywhere.

    Good Luck!

    Oh my god,

    This is the best question to ask hands down when you're new to Internet Marketing. I can tell that you're going to go far just by the questions that you're starting to ask. You're willing to learn, which is more than I could say for myself or others when I first started out. Here are the three main things (in my opinion) that you need to embed into your thinking when starting a career in Internet marketing:

    1) DO NOT get distracted. There are TONS of methods out there in the Internet marketing world and they all make money if you do them right, but honestly, if you learn about something you think will make money, stick with it for a month or two before you write it off. Internet Marketing forums are littered with people saying "I heard about this method and I tried it for 2 days and it didn't make me money". Don't get distracted.

    2) Ask questions! You're already doing that, so you're off to a great start.

    3) Don't be afraid to spend money once you've made a bit of cash. At a certain point, when you're spending 12 hours a day working on something that has been profitable for you consistently, if might be wiser to pay somebody to do that work for you and make a profit from it (aka, buying articles for 3 and making 5 off of them instead of writing them). SCALING and OUTSOURCING are two of the most potent business strategies and you'd be wise to use them down the line. ONLY USE THEM IF YOU'RE SURE YOU CAN MAKE MONEY WITH THE METHOD.

    That's all I've got. Best of luck to you and i congratulate you on entering a world of freedom. Never give up!

    Best,

    Thomas

      Take just a few days and learn everything you can.
      Pick a niche and start promoting it.
      Start writing articles.
      BUILD A LIST

      I put that last point in CAPS because that is the biggest mistake I made as a Newbie. I'm sure I lost thousands of dollars by not building a list early on.

      Tip #1 Choose a business that peaks your interest and motivates you.

      Tip#2 Being new to marketing is very overwhelming and downright confusing so follow in someone elses footsteps. Learn and achieve from someone that you can trust and further more make sure you can understand this person. You cant follow what someone else is doing if that person doesnt make sense to you.

      Tip#3 Ask questions. The more questions you ask the more you will know. This is a great place to begin. Actually the only place to begin in my eyes

      Hope this helps

    My 3 Advices:

    1)Sit down and think about what you WANT (Not what you think is "realistic", but what you want to Achieve...set up a GOAL)

    2)Auto-Suggestion (Everyday make it a habit to read successful quotes and successful biographies and books of successful people)

    3)The idea will come to you, and you take a hold of it, and follow through 100% with a BELIEF that it will work.

    Here's my contribution

    1. Before you buy anything online sleep on it first or at least go make yourself a coffee first whilst you think about it

    2. Have a business plan in place (Very important as it will help you to reach and deliver your goals)

    3. Always finish what you start. Biggest newbie mistake is to jump from one thing to another without actually finishing anything

    Hi

    1.Don't waste all your time reading emails.
    2.Log the time your being productive so you can see this and outsource work which is keeping you back
    3.Plan today tomorrow (do 90 day plans)
    4.Don't blame others when you fail at first, hold yourself accountable. What could you have done to do things better.
    5.Join the warrior War room. You'll learn tons of info..
    6.Treat yourself after each milestone, make IM fun.

    But most of all Focus and take action today not tomorrow!!

    Good Luck

    Yep - the picture has to change.
    I love the advice here so far - it's all good. I would add that while you should invest in your education (follow someone who has done what you have done and knows how to successfully show others how to do it, get a legitimate support system, etc.), just look to the next logical step for your business. Too many of us, even when we buy courses and stuff that are effective and have solid information, end up buying things that are so far down the road from where our business is at that we either never use them, or we never take the next appropriate action in our business, since we are always distracted.
    Test and track your results from the start.
    Make sure there is a market for your product or service on the internet, you can find them, and they are willing to pay you for your product or service. THEN create the product or service.
    Best of everything!

      1. Take Action Every Day to get your name, products, and sites in front of people.

      2. Choose one technique, or method, and stick with it until you master it and are making money with it.

      3. Join the War Room and use the search function to learn more about your chosen method, then take massive action.

      I intentionally put Action before learning, because you will quickly learn, almost everyone who is not succeeding forgot the most important part of the day, to Take Action, and actually get something out there.

      Stay away from trying multiple plans from a variety of people. Choose one style and go with it.

      My biggest hang up has always been the "keep learning" syndrome, so every morning I must remind myself to take action on something productive, not to just sit on forums all day, or watch the coolest new training video. (But of course, this post just did help me take action, because I just left a link to my services...)

      Only consistent focused action will get the job done.

    1, This is a real business NOT a get quick rich scheme
    2, Join a group or a team, a community really works, when you can talk to someone else with the same mindset, this can be a lonely experience.
    3, Look for a mentor and look for FREE training team, its better to find out before you get involved in this business, try before you buy.
    4, DONT buy every product and ebook that comes out, learn the game and you will soon get the experience, and not get sucked in and waiste you money.
