I am here for a while now and I need to make a confession.
Though a relatively-experienced service provider, I'm new to Internet Marketing.
Every post in WSO promises heaven and the sales pages are out of the world. Given the reputation of Warrior Forum, I believed in every single one of those offers. And bought quite a few.
Then, there were some freebies doled out. I was only too happy to download them. Now, I have a folder that has ebooks numbering in double digits.
I sat down to read them one by one and when I was through, I found out something: I was no more smarter than i was when I started it. In fact, I was quite confused.
Then the understanding: None of those books and reports were worthless. They were extremely relevant and had tons of information. Problem is... I was trying to have a seven-course meal for breakfast. Naturally, I couldn't digest. I started losing hope.
I didn't visit WF for a few days. I then did what I knew already. I posted in my blog and created some backlinks and basically, took it easy. No strategy, but I did what i knew. I am a writer and provide article writing service. Naturally, my content is good. Within a few days, I noticed something happening. It was a revelation:
I started getting fantastic traffic to my blog. I didn't do anything ground breaking. I'll tell you what I did:
I wrote good quality content.
Posted it on my blog.
Posted it on a few web 2.0 sites and linked back to my site.
I wrote only fresh unique articles everywhere.
Well, that's it.
There is already some good money through clicks.
Now, I think I will start some offers and build a list and sell.
What I learnt:
Do it simple. Play on your strengths. Remember that, "Everyone who has a secret to reveal has tried it "first." Find a process that is your "secret."
For me, I have a secret and I won't sell it. But just say it here.
"I did what I knew."
For every newbie like me out there... Don't get bogged down by information overload and puppy failures. Chin up!
