Maybe those of you who have been marketing for 5 years or more can chime in here.
I could be totally wrong, but this is what I'm seeing...
Many newbies think they can become successful WITHOUT actually knowing what they're doing or putting in the time it takes to learn and gain experience.
They get frustrated because they're not automatically making a killing online just because they've taken a few courses or bought a couple pieces of software.
Truth is... it's virtually impossible to succeed as a newbie.
I don't care how many sales pages you've read or how many pretenders told you you can make it as a newbie.
Expectations are just unrealistic.
A heart surgeon doesn't learn how to perform surgery in a day, so why should you know how to make money after a day? Or even a week, a month, or even a year?
People rise up in internet marketing at different rates because someone might have past sales experience or have a better mindset, for example, but otherwise it's all the same...
Don't expect to be successful as a newbie.
Here are some tips to go from newbie to a higher level fast...
Instead of watching TV, read marketing, sales, and copywriting books. (How much TV does the average person watch anyway? Like 3 hours per day? Why not spend that time studying?)
Instead of listening to the radio in the car, listen to marketing, sales, and copywriting MP3s. (How many hours are you in the car every day? Probably enough time to add hours of study to your day.)
Also build up your own network of people who are on the same level as you so you can network, grow your businesses together, and keep each other motivated. You can meet people here on Warrior Forum, then add them on Skype and have a huge network of people in no time.
Stop setting unrealistic expectations. The first thing you need to do is get to a higher level before you can succeed. Don't expect success as a newbie.
