I bought course after course. Spent hours learning about seo, ppc, copywriting, marketing, offline consulting, blogging.
I was obsessive...
I feel in love with Internet Marketing... the dream of "internet marketing lifestyle".
You know...the idea of being free, not having a boss, waking up whenever I wanted, making tons of money.
After two years I could talk the talk. Perhaps you can the same. I knew all the lingo, all the gurus, I could talk about seo, ppc, the works.
I took action too, taught my self how to build website, how to write copy, create products, how to use aweber, etc. However the money I made with minimal. Actually it was pathetic compared to the amount of hours I was putting in.
Fast forward to today, things are quite different. I now make a full time living online and I realize the big mistake I made. It was a mistake that I had made since the moment I started leaning about this internet marketing stuff in 2007.
I fell in love with the wrong thing.
Let me explain.
It is something Jay Abraham said "most entrepreneurs fall in love with the wrong thing. They fall in love with their products and their business when they should be falling in love with their clients and customers."
When I shifted my focus off of IM and onto my clients and customers. Shifted my focus from learning about IM techniques to learning about the clients and customers I wanted to help.
My success skyrocketed.
Being around IM for 6 years now and working with some very successful people, this really is the SECRET to making money online.
It may sound to simple, but it's true.
