The Learning Curve for Internet Marketing is Straight Up for me.
Man oh man, have I been busy. 2 weeks ago I read the e-myth revisited, blew my mind again on what Gerber knows and how to set up a business. Everyone, and I mean Everyone has to read that if they are thinking about ever starting a business.
Then went down and picked up from my local library (had to sign up for a new lib. card too) Jay Conrad Blevins’s Guerrilla Marketing – old book, but an Awesome Read. Tons of good stuff in there about marketing your business. And the refreshing part was that he wrote this just before the internet was really publicly available, so here is a great book on all kinds of marketing that is so totally relevant today and it has almost no mention of the internet. Nowadays you can’t find a book about business or marketing that doesn’t hype and hype the internet (and china, but that’s a different subject).
Well then read Mark Joyner’s Irresistible Offer – Great concept, just trying to wrap my mind around how it can apply to some more complex areas. His examples all really deal with markets/products that are easily definable, and the product is quite specific. And the need is genuine and apparent.
That is one area where I am always looking for answers is in my day job – financial planning. It’s something that everyone truly needs, and can do immensely better if they get some help, but no-one has any awareness of what they really need. And when there is a need – which there almost always is – the solution can be so diverse – it is really hard to pin down an Irresistible Offer.
Well on to my learning – I have become Warrior Forum addicted – what a place to learn – amazing. Getting some real great info there. And building some relationships as well.
Also picked up a few ebooks over the last week – some great packages flying around out there. I am getting better at keeping track of what I have, and also skimming them over and making notes so that I can later go back and use them as a resource.
I think I mentioned I had picked up Tellman/Joyner Viral Chemistry set – about 8 CD’s of great learning – some super stuff.
Also listed lately to the latest Kennedy/Glazer CD from my monthly membership – it was a great one on some real down to earth tactics!
So all in all, my mind is reeling from all the info. I got ideas coming out of each ear.
but I have been active too. – I have about half the adsense sites of mine up. I have some of the PLR packages re-worked and up also. Want to put a few finishing touches on them and then start marketing them.
One of those PLR packages I am in the process of taking down, it wasn’t making much for sales the way it was, although it was great info in the ebook. I am going to rework it into a website, add some additional thoughts and content and offer it for free as a resource site. If I link a number of affiliate products to it, I think it will make a great marketing tool.
I will also will build a small report to try to get the viral thing going, and refer back to the resource site. I think it will be a real cornerstone to my Internet Marketing business as I move forward.
Keep moving ahead
