I know what it's like to buy a product thinking your going to make $100 a day and instead you end up losing $100 a day. I know what it's like to stay up all night implementing a shiny new method only to find out that the method is flawed and saturated.
However, once I was exposed to the methods and business models that were proven and tested, success came to me pretty fast.
There are two main ways to achieve success with online marketing. You can force your way to success through hard work, determination, and perseverance. This route is filled with road-bumps, dead-ends, roadblocks, and detours. However, if you keep your foot on the pedal, eventually you may reach your destination or in other words, achieve some form of success.
The problem with that is the unpredictability of how long it will take before you start achieving any success. It took me about 6 years to achieve the same amount of success that should've taken me 3 months or less.
The second option is to reverse-engineer or even better, work 1-on-1 with someone who has already achieved the kind of success you would like to achieve. Reverse-engineering is your best bet if you simply don't have the funds to spend on personal 1-on-1 coaching. You also have the option of group coaching which might be more affordable.
Reverse-engineering would consist of you finding someone who has achieved the success you would like to achieve and breaking down his/her business model into a step-by-step plan of action.
However, nothing beats real 1-on-1 personal coaching where you literally get to speak to the person and get direct and actionable coaching. The great thing about having a mentor who you work with closely is that you won't have to waste your valuable time figuring things out (that have already been figured out by others in the past). You can simply just tell your coach what you want to achieve and he/she will tell you the steps he/she took to achieve that, and all you need to do is simply follow directions and take consistent massive action.
If someone is telling you exactly what you need to do to achieve your goals, then it would only make sense to take massive action, because the more action and the faster you take action, the faster you will get results.
I've done the trial and error thing, I've tried reverse-engineering, and I've tried 1-on-1 coaching. Hiring someone to work with me 1-on-1 in my online business has by far always been the fastest and most effective way to boost the results in my business.
Obviously once you get to a certain level of understanding the online marketing game you won't really need a coach, but even then it's still beneficial to have someone in your corner assisting you with staying focused and holding you accountable for taking action.
Online marketing is already hard enough, why try to go at it alone when you could just save up some money and hire someone to help you.
Imagine going to school with no teacher. Would you even take school seriously?
Well, it's the same thing with online marketing. When you spend your hard-earned money on a coach, you automatically start to take online marketing extremely serious. You will find yourself waking up early, working harder, and focusing with more intensity.
Stop letting your fear of losing money hold you back from investing in yourself. If you're serious about online marketing you better be ready to "Go Hard Or Go Home".
