It's been a really long, long, long while since I posted here...or since I even had anything to do with online marketing.
Having begun my online marketing ventures somewhere in 2008, I'm sad to say that up till now, I've got NOTHING to show for it. My biggest paycheck from good ole Clickbank was something like 300USD or so...and at least a good half of it was from my own purchases..you know...the next big thing syndrome...
With lots of money(by my standard) spent on web design, online services, Adwords etc etc, and NOTHING to show for it, I decided to call it quits in 2010 and froze everything related to IM.
From 2010 till date, I messed around with forex/futures and penny stocks trading. I gotta confess that while serious money can be made trading, I'm treading on thin ice everyday...yes, it's that risky. In fact, the very reason I'm back in the IM game is because I made a mess of things and blew up my 5K trading account. Game Over! Woots!
Right now, I'm a full-time Law student with the University of London and by some mysterious force, I'm being steered into the direction of IM again.
Somehow, I still believe that good and serious money can be made online, be it online lead generation, selling own infoproducts, affiliate marketing etc. I still have the hunch that I CAN and WILL eventually succeed making a full time living online.
What's my definition of a full-time living? Well, given that I'm here in Singapore, anywhere from 3k-5k USD PROFITS will fall into my definition of a full-time living income.
So...long story short...I'm BACK! Wee!
Right now, here's the plan:
I've just joined an online lead generation network based in UK and from what I've researched so far, the folks over there are making in excess of 35K per month PROFIT and there are many people in the network making my target income.
Also, I somehow managed to get a copy of George Brown's GS2. I didnt get the first one but I've heard good things about it so I might as well put it to good use and follow through.
So for a start, here's what I plan to do:
1) Sign up for the Google Adwords Certification Program to learn Adwords inside and out. The reason is because previously, I've been messing around with Adwords...the wrong way, resulting in monstrous credit card bills. I simply do not know how to do keyword research, construct good ads, split test etc etc. so i guess I'm gonna start right from scratch
2) Take time to digest and understand GS2 and implement it and make darn sure I follow through this time round instead of giving up halfway
3) Understand how the online lead generation network works and how I can get my feet wet. I secretly suspect my Google Adwords Certification Program will help me tremendously here.
4) Make real money this time!
