Internet marketing is just like going to School! lol

14 replies
The whole internet marketing thing is more like school.
At first you need to get a good education and become a expert.
Then you apply your knowledge to create a profitable business.
The entire information product business is a education business.
The only difference is that there is no physical classroom
The knowledge is transferred online via ebooks and information products
You are actually teaching people something via your ebooks and information products.
So instead of viewing yourself as a marketer, think yourself as a teacher
Your job is to teach the world about whatever topic you want to teach about.

    I think they like to define their self as a "Couch" more then a teacher

    But I hear your point!

      I agree.

      Several years ago, Internet Marketing/SEO used to be much simpler. The world of Internet Marketing has changed a lot and it is constantly changing. It's like you're in school all the time.

        Yep. Couldn't agree more.

        Marketing is like any other career path, it takes time and dedication to learn and even more time and dedication to master!

        I think it's funny how people come into this and expect to get rich by next week.

        Oh yeah, it takes lots of STUPID mistakes as well sometimes to finally get things right.

      I don't know about others here but I don't like calling myself a "couch". Rather, I'm a coach. :p

  • Good discussion here. I could not agree more. Learning internet marketing online requires not only time but also patience, effort, dedication, and most especially a lot of room for mistakes. Yes mistakes. During my own self learning of IM, I think that there is no single solution nor right or wrong in IM, only a trial and error. It's a risk that you must take to know if that system works for you or not.

    Good point, except that with IM you won't need to wait for decades to turn a positive ROI ; also you'll be building your own assets while learning

    But where's my diploma? I wanna graduate already! J/K

    Seriously though, it's been a painful road, but no matter how it turns out in the end I wouldn't want to erase the years I've spent learning some of the ins and outs of this thing called IM. It's been frustrating, but it's been fun too.
