I've just taken the decision to pursue my lifelong interest in marketing via IM. I admit, I've been lazy. Until now I've paid others to build websites for me. One of my sites has 30,000 members but I never wrote a single line of code! (embarrassing but true...)
What I want to do now is create a bunch of sites that sell 1) 3rd party products (physical and digital) and a 2) self built digital products. I want to do this off my own bat - I don't mind paying for certain things but I really want to understand to do it by myself. My day job is sucking the life out of me, I hate it with a passion. My dream is to spend more time with my wife and kids and be 100% in control of my own income. I've got a degree in marketing and I've spent years working as a market research executive in an international blue chip and even more time as a negotiator and deal maker. I've got knowledge to share and loads of ideas. Besides business, negotiation, marketing and psychology my interests include martial arts and health and fitness. I would love to apply my knowledge towards making a living from the things that actually interest me. Know what I mean?
I've been a member of this forum for over 10 years (I had to change my username after the site upgrade a couple of years ago) so I understand the non tech stuff behind what works and what doesn't. My problem is... technical know how.
I would be supremely grateful to any Warriors who would put a marketing expert on the newbie road to success. I need to get a no bull, fast track, road map covering ALL the technical details from scratch (in lay mans terms) to:
- research keywords
- choose the right domain name
- how to set up wordpress, how to set up templates for maximum SEO
- how to create backlinks
- how to develop and create a list
you get the picture.... I have the product without the technical knowledge.
One thing I can say is I am supremely motivated, well educated and I remember those who help me. I WILL be successful in IM, it's just a matter of me applying myself. If anyone can help me I will owe them a favour. I always repay those that help me.
So please Warriors, educate me. Point me towards the best threads and War Room downloads (I'm a member there)!
Help me and I will do my best to help you.
