anyone willing to mentor a lost newbie?

35 replies
I am a newbie to internet marketing. I have been researching this stuff for so long that I don't even know where to begin. I would love to have someone to tell me to do 'this' one day and 'that' the next. Ya know, that kind of stuff. Just someone to guide me. Is there anyone out there willing to do that?:confused:

    This is a common problem. There is so much Internet marketing advice out there, some good and some not-so-good, that it is overwhelming for newbies.

    This is where a coach can be of help, but there is a cost to hiring and working with a reputable coach on an ongoing basis.

    I am looking for some beta testers for my new "Internet Marketing 101" course designed for newbies. If you were interested I could provide you with a free review copy in return for your feedback and testimonial if you like it.

    Let me know.

    I agree it is a lot to learn the key is you have to start! Starting is the only way you can learn, you can read and research all day everyday but until you get out there and test what you learned you will never really learn any lessons.

    The best lessons are the lessons learned through trial and error. The more you test the more you learn! Failure is not failure because ever failure in life eventually turns into success!

    Keep learning keep doing and I wish you the best of luck and success!

    You don't learn until you take steps. I failed numerous times before actually start making money on internet. Take actions faster. Yeah it is good to have a good IM guide to start off you with. You will learn a lot in the process. "Google Sniper" and "Profit Storm" really encouraged me to build sniper sites and yeah I am making money from these kind of mini sites right now.

      Here are some tips I've found useful as I began my marketing business. I hope they help!

      1) Have GUTS! Don't be afraid to put yourself out there to get results.
      2) Have a plan. There is so much information on internet marketing available that it is easy to get lost at sea. Find one strategy you think will work and STICK WITH IT for a few weeks to measure its results. Don't flip flop strategies or you will quickly become overwhelmed.
      3) Create a brand. People buy people - they don't buy products. What differentiates you from all the other people selling your product or service?
      4) Offer value. What are you doing or saying that is showing the benefit to your customer? What does your customer actually want? (i.e. if you are recruiting - they aren't looking for your product, they are looking for a lifestyle)
      5) Recruit stars. Don't waste time on people that aren't motivated.
      6) Take it one day at a time. Change doesn't come overnight, but if you work hard, there are amazing possibilities in store for you. Keep your eye on the prize and before you know it - you are on your way!

      Good luck.

    Starting out in this business is definitely overwhelming.

    Think of it is a course you would take online.

    Read, read, and then read some more.

    When you find where you want to concentrate your efforts, narrow the subject down and read, print out information and create your own "text book", printing information and studying, researching.

    There is no magic solution. Take your time, decide what you are good at and focus on what you can do that WILL be successful.

    Jason Fladlien has an outstanding coaching program from what I am hearing. He's always on the level and has a fantastic reputation. If I were you I would seriously consider contacting him and seeing what his coaching program is worth. He had a WSO on here for it just recently.

      I am in the coaching programme and it is excellent because it is covering different business models as well as the right mindset/planning etc.

        im new to the I-M world myself, been going just a month.

        i invested in a coaching program that's lifetime access, plus access to webinars which has helped me heaps. Obviously coaching never comes free no matter what your learning.

        Another point as mentioned before....is people hop from one thing to another WORST thing you can do.

        the coaching program i joined concentrates on just one specific business
        model so you can't hop from one idea to the next, you master the one they teach you, it keeps you on the straight and narrow.

        if your interested in the program i learned from you can PM me and i
        will send you a link.

        keep trying !!!!

    I know how you feel Lynn, I've been researching IM and many different options since March of this year when my hours at work were cut down and the information available is overwhelming. I'm the kinda gal that likes a checklist, but that's just not going to happen here - what works for most- won't work for me. I finally figured out what I can and am willing to do and decided to get something going. I researched the top 3 programs offered and with much fear decided to purchase. I'm glad I did simply because I would never have known where to start.

    It has taken me about 2 weeks just to set up my website and I'm still not sure about some of the things I'm doing, but at least I'm doing something. It's easy to daydream about having enough money to get my kid through college in 2 years, but if I want that as a reality I need to do something now. Taking action is the hardest thing to do, but once it's started, it get's easier.

    I still don't know about adsense or how to do more than just the basic set up and posting of my product, but I'm just happy I can find my site on the web.

    Wish you the best of success in whatever you decide to do - just decide to do it!

    You have been researching this stuff so long.....but you don't know where to begin? Here's what I do (part 1):

    1) Find a desperate buyer market (some success with cell phone spyware, get ex back, lose weight..others to think about, acne, small penis, infertility, stop smoking etc..there are a ton of these)
    2) Find a keyword that is pertinent to any of the above niches that you chose. Go to google keyword tool. Put in the search parameters "give up smoking", change parameters to exact. Hit search. (You should go for anything over 1000 - we'll be hitting the longtails later). Extract all of results to excel. Copy list
    3) Go to godaddy bulk domain search. (paste your results into box, checking only .com, .net and .org domains)
    4) see what comes up.
    5) Maybe you'll find a good domain name at this stage?

    I will give you the advice I was given 8 years ago that I followed and got me to a full time job from home online......Pick one program and only one, then work with it. There are many free guides that can help you get going and get your income starting to move in the right direction. Master this one thing you choose before you try something else.

    Free is the best way to go and since you are a war room member you have access to a ton of good stuff. I prefer to use Wordpress and build blogs myself, but that part is up to you. Check my signature for more.

    I was a affiliate marketing newbie less than a month ago, I am by far no expert but I have finally found the best step by step down to earth affiliate marketing training from one of the top super affiliates. He will hold your hand the entire way and even give you his personal cell phone number, I have had to call him once or twice and he answered every time. I now have 5 sites up, several are ranked on first page of google for my targeted keywords and am generating moderate sales but it is getting better and better each day. Send me a message and I will be glad to share the online training I found. Thanks

    I would recommend you go to youtube and type in "Jon McNeil clickbank" He's a great mentor and has taught me a lot of great info for free. It's really not that hard to make money online when you are following a straight line system. That's what I'm doing now. You find a profitable niche, set up your aweber account, drive free traffic, set up a squeeze page, and then follow up with the prospects who are interested. You then make money on the backend of the products and services you offer, it's a very simple plan to follow, it just takes time, patience, and effort.

      yes, it is easier said than done but you are right.

      The reason newbies fail is taht they fail in the following areas.

      1) They dont take action

      2) They dont take action

      Plus if they do, they do not stick to one thing. I call them WSO hoppers as they hop around from one thing to the next.

      That is the easiest way to go broke / make $0 profits.

    There is a lot of information already available on the internet.
    Why you want to hire someone to teach you? Yes, I know that a mentor can be a great help to have you quick start but you didn't explain what you've tried so far and what are your failures and success.

    First, If you come up with a very specific problem like 'How to get approved in CPA offers?' then you can get a lot of help.

    Second, as a newbie you've decided that you want to make money online BUT have you decided your niche?

    You should first of all think about a niche which pays. Then decide whether you want to be a vendor or an affiliate? If you want to be a vendor then can you develop your own product or want to hire someone? If you want to hire someone then you can come here and post your requirement. This is how the forums work.

    Until you come up with ONE problem, you won't get any help.

    Thanks for such an incredible question Tish_Lynn02,

    I shared a similar path as you did when I first got into Internet Marketing. The best advice I have to give you is to have a mentor who will keep you grounded.

    There are a lot of tactics out there, and it seems like a new one is being put on the market every hour. That's why you must know what your strategy is so you can use tactics that follow suit with your strategy.

    Robert Kiyosaki talks about the importance of FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful), so pick ONE strategy (affiliate marketing - probably the best to get started, product creation, CPA, etc.), then chose ONE tactic to drive traffic.

    FOCUS on those two elements to the point where you've mastered them, and then go out there and start incorporating new stuff.

    Check out this interview I did with Rick Braddy that talks about the 3 Pillars of Online Sales Success - how to start, build, and grow an online business the right way:

    Financial Education: How To Build An Online Business The Right Way | Billionaire Belief | Wealth Creation Network

    Thanks again for the terrific question!

    As always, make it a great day!

    To Your Abundant Success,

    Here's a very good 5 star post on here that I highly recommend IF you want to start out in affiliate marketing. It's not a mentoring setup HOWEVER you can ask questions or ask/PM the OP and he's very receptive....Here's the link:

    what you exactly need is a mentor who will guide you step by step.

    But that can be pretty expensive, a good coaching program costs around $197 per month.

    What you can do is be your own mentor if you are willing to save money.

    It is easy. Avoid reading your emails that give you a new money making opportunity every day. Instead pick up one training program or an internet marketing expert whom you can follow and then purchase his training product.

    Now read it, take down notes, setup your plan and take massive action. Donot try and jump to another money making promise in your inbox. Do what your mentor tells you to do in your training product from start to finish.

    And let me scare you a bit. If you do what I tell you to do above you will certainly fail. Yes, you will face lots of failures on the way, this is the exact point where people give up.

    Have persistency and faith and slowly and steadily apply your plan and move towards your end goal.

    This is how you should go about. Avoid information overload. Have less knowledge and take more action rather than knowing everything about IM and having nothing to show for.

    You don't have to be perfect, just get started.

    My advice is to get to get someone to coach you, you have lots of questions and yes there is a ton of material out there, when I started I bough some material from some guru I do not want to name, but everything he sold me was of a very low standard. Marketers are some of the most generous people I have met. I have bought tons of material from all the guru. you can direct your question to me I will be happy to help you and guide you depending on what you love to do. Because the online marketing is a big field you need a focus. The key is what do you love to do
