    There are a few books on the market that you can learn a lot from.

    One of them is called how I made my first million online and how you can too by Ewen Chia. I read that book and it is pretty good.

    You can get it at Amazon.com.

    First at all I would decide in which direction you wanna go! There are so many ways in Internet Marketing that it can be overwhelming to decide where to go!

    Have a look here at the forum for example in the Mind Warriors - Success, Power, Self-Improvement Forum where you can find really good threads about Marketing and Mindset Books. I also can highly recommend "Think and Grow Rich" From Napoleon Hill which is not a book about Internet Marketing but a book which will help you a lot with getting started.

    No matter how many times this question has been asked and regardless of how it was worded...

    I will always recommend the same thing:

    Do some research and invest in a coach.

    Especially since you said you work better in a more structured way...

    A coach can definitely help you with that, and a helluva lot more

      This. A coach/mentor will definitely shorten the learning curve by a whole lot and guide you through his/her personal experiences, challenges, roadblocks along the way.

      Spend some money and invest in a good coach. The returns of investment will be significantly higher than what you spent.

    "Internet Marketing" is a pretty broad space, so I would browse here and try and find a more specific route you want to take within "Internet Marketing" and then try and find more specific resources from there.

    Lots of good stuff on this forum though...good luck!

    First of all decide what you can do based on your skills and knowledge, then start reading only posts about this matter. You have to get used to reading many posts until you will find the best ones here. There are better lessons in this forum than anywhere else.

    You have to be persistent and keep learning.

    At the same time you can test your skills by using free platforms to understand how everything works online into practice. They are easy to use, but you can lose your work at any time. Don't exaggerate.

    Use them as a way to learn and as a way to start making some money for a few expenses. You can create a Blogger blog and promote affiliate products, Squidoo lenses, Zujava leafs, and Hub pages.

    All sound advice so far.

    All I have to add is don't devote all your time to reading and researching. Take action on everything you learn.

    Seth Godin's All Marketers are liars book gives a great background on what your mindset as marketer should be like.

    From the sound of things, you are needing to learn the basics, and the terminology. You may want to look on YouTube for some videos that will help you learn the basics in more detail.

      Great advice
      Very necessary to know the basics and the terminology.

      If you keep reading posts here on WF for a while, you would come to a conlusion on
      -what others are doing
      -what others are avoiding
      -what are some profitable niches
      -what you can do to learn more and become expert in one

      Whatever you learn, make sure you put good efforts to put them in action. Testing stuff yourself will help you more than anything else.

    First off its important to understand that making money online is not internet marketing, it is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing consists of a whole different mindset than internet marketing, you will find that here in the forum nobody is really educated in internet marketing but just affiliate marketing and making money online.

    Pick up a book on both subjects and you will understand the psychological differences.

    Are you sure you want to be an entrepreneur, or do you just want a job?

    While you spend time reading people's signatures on a forum someone else is working to make the money you could have made.

    I have started a video training series on internet marketing, which is mainly focused on SEO and inbound marketing. I have posted one rough video and will put another two up this week. A great place to start internet marketing is on your own website, with inbound marketing in mind. You can check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/VirginiaSEOExpert

  • Hi,

    Here we go again. How to get started and as usual lots of different answers and only one with what I would also agree? Now I don't want to say I am right and everyone else is wrong because we all have different opinions and sadly many have forgotten how frustrating it is when getting started from scratch.

    So without any doubt my advice as always is to get some online coaching because simply going though this forum and others is a bit like a jig saw puzzle and as I said before, with lots of conflicting advice about what to do. A mentor, however will have a well structured set of training videos and PDF's which take you from zero ability and knowledge to having your own niche website up and online getting sign ups to build a list which is the first stage to success.

    Then the mentor will show you how to drive traffic to get those sign ups because the money is in the list and never in the offer on a website. Very few websites make a sale the first time someone views it or at least very few buy on their first visit. Far better to offer a free valuable information ebook, video or mini-course newsletter to get them to opt in and build a relationship with them first. only then eventually send related product recommendations in your follow up emails once they like and know who you are and because you have helped them.

    Unless you are an expert copywriter or a super salesman it is very doubtful all the reading of books, forum posts and replies will turn you into a full time online marketer any time this side of 2015 or even further beyond? A mentor will cost a small monthly $? but that will save you many months of spending a lot more while earning a big fat zero online. My recommendation is Niche Profit Classroom or for a better explanation of the basics the Chris Farrell membership are in my opinion the best by far.

    Wishing you every success.

    Stephen & Jennifer.

  • I know of a 21 step system that breaks down different business models, traffic, conversions, and economics that will ultimately save you a lot of time. It's by Matt Loyd. I'm on step 6 right now and from my experience with all of these different "guru" courses, this is the only down-to-earth system I've found so far. Let me know if you want more info.

    I like attraction marketing systems with simple
    advertising methods that generate leads quickly.
    Systems that are easy for any newbie to pick up, and that anyone living anywhere
    can use. I don't like for my advertising methods to be restricted to just a
    couple of countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

    I prefer for the whole system to be about assisting internet marketers with
    becoming better at promoting their own primary business opportunity. I like
    it this way because it's a mass appeal need. When you present such a program
    to a prospect who is serious, it's a much better fit because most marketers want to learn how to generate leads and drive traffic to their own opportunities as opposed to hopping around from one business to the next.

    Finally, I like an attraction marketing program that allows you to make healthy chunks of cash up front even if the prospect decides not to join your primary biz. I like when you can earn residual income streams off of tools that provide assistance in the promotion of your primary business. Not just some filler programs that you join even though you have no real interest in them. Every part of the system to me should be about assisting prospects with the promotion of their own opportunity.

    I agree. A coach will keep you on track and teach you in a structured manner. The time and money you spend figuring things out by trial and error could be put towards actually building your business.

    I concur with getting a coach to help you learn about IM. The coach will show you techniques on what to do - that is what u called structured. It is always good to learn from the people who have been in the field. In the process, you will save lots of time and money. You will also know which direction to take, and what it entails.

    If you are serious and you have the money to invest on this, I would definitely agree with one of the posters here. Hire a professional coach; your coach will be able to guide you and walk you through the process of understand internet marketing down to its roots.

    If you need a recommendation, I know one coach here who can help you out. But you can also check out the warrior forum for other coaches. There are a lot!
