Help, I'm new to all of this!

32 replies
Hey, sorry of you've read this message already, I am a Warrior virgin, as of today, and also new to IM. I need some help on even basic IM terms. Is the IM for Dummies a good reference to start at grass roots, or is there another reference that is better? Also, still having difficulty getting a handle on Market Samurai, the trial version, is because I am new, or is there a more user friendly keyword search tool? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Regards.

    Hi,

    There are great eBooks out there to help you get started in IM. There's WSO's, which can help newbies a lot. The forum's a great resource to, just ask away. If your wanting to do simple keyword research, you could use Google's tool.

    All you need to know you can find on Warrior Forum.

    My advice is to spend some time reading through threads and you'll get plenty of ideas on how to make an income from IM.

    You might want to use the Google External Keyword tool for basic keyword research...

    Good luck!

      To read or create eBooks? If your wanting to read one, Adobe Reader 9 should be fine.

    Hi,

    First well, welcome.

    Second, this is maybe one of the most important advices you could get to start with: take your time. Learn. Ask questions. And don't expect to see results by tomorrow: learning IM and doing things correctly requires time.
    As for your keyword research, you should learn to do it "the old fashioned way" and learn the basics of SEO before you start using fancy tools.

    Seb.

    Welcome to the forum. Google's own keyword tool is very simple to use and best of all its free.

    Open your favorite browser and type Google Keyword Tool in the search and it will be at the very top of the page. Just click on it and start practicing. It's Google's on software.

    Everybody has an opinion on the best IM book, but everyone also has a b*******. Do a search here and find the e-book you think might help you. Don't jump on the first one because your in a hurry read the reviews, weigh them carefully then make the decision based on what you think will help you the most.

    Welcome! WF is a great place to get started.

    Personally I suggest a IM mentor also. Yea, it might cost a little but worth it in the end. Do research for sure... you can find a TON of good honest guys out there.

    Good luck!

    Welcome to the Warrior forum. Don't worry, we were all internet virgins at some time. In fact, at the rate things change, I often still feel like a newbie.

    Well first of all, having never read IM for dummies, I cant respond on that one. However the best training material I have come across is the following - http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...r-reviews.html - That WSO is now closed, but there is a link to where you can obtain the book (not sure what the current price is though.



    However, if you have not yet read throuugh the following thread, it may be a good idea to do so - http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...bers-read.html

    Next, another thread that should be of help http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ake-money.html

    Regarding Market Samurai. It is a marvelous tool, but you need to be patient with yourself and go through all the training videos - having said that don't disregard the Google adwords keyword tool - I use both.

    Hope this helps

    I would say get involved in this forum, I have been in business online since 2008 but only joined this the other day and some good things going on.

    I would also recommend following some top online marketers and getting involved in conversations with them on platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

    I used the book Newbie to Millionare too. It's available on clickbank or you can find the hard cover book on Amazon like I did. (It was a bit cheaper on Amazon if I recall) I just like having a book to hold. She is straight forward about how she selects niches, what tools she uses, etc.

    Good luck!

    I'm not sure about IM for Dummies, as I haven't read it. There is a lot of information available and it's going to be easy to get caught up with "information overload".

    My advice is to focus on creating a specific value. Just keep your focus on creating the best possible product you can and when it comes time to market your product, just focus on only ONE type of traffic strategy until you get that down.

    I wouldn't even worry about Market Samurai if I was just starting out. SEO usually takes some time and is more of a long range strategy.

    Welcome!

    I've seen a lot of great advice here and def took some notes myself. If you are the type of person that preffers watching a video instead of reading an Ebook I recommend you Youtube. There are lots of people posting valuable content and I think it should help you to grasp the basic concepts and get started. I wish you the best of luck

    jaspodeman,

    Welcome to the Forum! You are at the right place to start learning. As a few have stated earlier, this forum has everything you need to learn in order to succeed online. Having said that, the info on this forum is not easily searched! But if you look hard enough, you will find an answer to your question.

    Spend time looking around and get some idea of which way you want to proceed. Pick one strategy and stick with it. DO not be distracted by shiny WSO's (only consider them if they related to your strategy)

    Consider paying for the warrior forum private area. It is well worth the money in my opinion. Many valuable WSOs and awesomely (is that even a word?) helpful comments end up on the private forum. What a gem some of those have been!

    Manage your expectations! Many quit before even giving IM a chance. If you expect to make large sums of money in a few weeks or months, you are likely to be dissapointed.

    Take action! Find a balance between taking the time to learn and putting what you learned into action. There is a fine line between learning and wasting time!

    Avoid information overload: Please see the paragraph above about sticking to one strategy!

    Keep your head high and continuously move forward! There will be setbacks along the way but you will overcome them if you really want this!

    To Your Success!

    Don't spend a ton of money on every new product. Invest in a War Room subscription, you get a lot of free material. At the same time, don't download everything and try to follow it. Pick a couple strategies and stick with them.

    If you want to know the basics of IM with step by step videos, let me know. I myself have a Completely Free Video Course(Over 20 Videos) that i believe a Complete Newcomer might find very very useful. I'm not trying to promote my site in any way here! I do have a free video course then i also have a members only area which i charge a monthly fee. The free video course contains all the necessary knowledge you need. You Don't Have to be a member of my site!! If you want to be a member in the near future if you find my videos useful, let me know here so i can email you a username and password. Members pay $37 a month for that but my intention here is just to help you out for free.

    If anyone knows for sure if such a posting like this is not allowed here, please let me know. I've only been a member here for 3 months or so...would really appreciate it a reply.

    However, i'm not New to IM....

    Wish you the Best regardless buddy!
