With so much information here and on the net in general how does one sift through all the hype. I have been looking at /toying with IM for past 8 months - and decided that the only way to really learn is to take action.
So I have built 3 niche sites and one ecommerce site - boy - you soon learn where your weekness lies . I quickly discovered I didn't pay enough attention on the keyword research, I really know very little about copywriting / conversion.
But as I drive a fair amount here in Aus I have listened to stacks of podcast, James Schramko, Lifestyle Business, Pat Flynn amongst many others and the learning curve is steep.
Now when you listen to all these podcasts quickly- they by and large say pretty much the same thing -add value to customers- unique content is king - article marketing for backlinks - build list - social media - outsource when you start making some $$ -
Now My question is - If I was to pay for a course to really help get a handle on niche marketing / PPC / etc and join one mastermind forum for real guidance etc - is there a stand out person that you experienced IMers would recommend - and why?
