You may not need more information in your quest to learn online marketing, but certainly, in many cases, you’ll need more money.
Very few hit a home run at the beginning of their journey. There can be a lot of trial and error and, if you’re reduced to driving traffic by generating clicks on Traffic Swarm or posting on free Buy & Sell Groups on Facebook, you can get frustrated very quickly.
“Done For You” opportunities abound and, in many cases, everything except driving traffic is taken care of for you. But driving traffic successfully most often involves some sort of investment and, while free traffic methods can be effective, they can take a very long time to produce results.
Many want to learn online internet marketing because they are attracted to what they perceive to be a low cost to entry. That’s certainly possible and, if you can bounce back from bogus opportunities and unexpectedly fierce competition, you can make a go of it. But, if you can’t afford to experiment with advertising or solo ads, results will be slow in coming.
Many marketing gurus will share a ‘hard luck’ story about their first forays into the online sales. Take these tales to heart. Of all the basic lessons you should learn it is these tales of difficult beginnings.
They can also serve as your source of inspiration as you continue to learn and grow.
To learn online marketing the hard way will not only help you build a successful business, but it can also build character and help you develop a certain empathy for those who would follow in your footsteps.
In many cases, those who take an interest in your path can and will become your customers. Don’t forget where you came from and don’t forget how you got there.
