Yes, you read it correct, ONLY follow one guru at a time! Follow the one that you feel comfortable with.
If you are out there trying to make money via Internet marketing then you are not by any means alone.
There are now tens-of-thousands of people work from home as part-time to generate the income and live off their online income for good. For the average Joe who are trying to make a good living online, I know the marketplace in advice is overcrowded and *very* confusing.
Whether you are heavily involved in the online business, or just starting out, if you’re one of those people who would like and enjoy the independence of running your own Internet Business, you might already signed up to a few mailing lists and that you’re being bombarded by a lot of information. Some of you may got headache about all those information overload.
Too Many Experts – Too Little Time
Something that I had long suspected and have even experienced for myself, turns out to be absolutely true.
There is a lot of excellent help and advice available on the net for online marketers.
In fact you don’t need to look very far and you will soon be stumbling across Internet marketing experts that will tell you much about important subjects like:
- product creation (example: create video)
- opt-in lists
- follow-up marketing
- choosing the right pricing
- running affiliate programs
- and so on…and so forth…
BUT, confusingly each and every one of these “experts” sets themselves up to be an authoritative “guru”.
Sure, a lot of the available information seems to be very good, but where should you start and who should you believe?
Worse still, one expert seems to be contradicting the next and everyone is SHOUTING so loud that you just don’t know what to do for the best (or first).
And the result of all this?
Your online work lacks direction. One minute you are following guru “A”, next minute you’re dipping into guru “B’s” advice, but then an email pops through from guru “S” and what they have to say looks simply irresistible. Suddenly you are being pulled in so many directions that you just can’t think where to start!
One “Guru” at Time Please
So what should you be doing to build your own successful online business?
For me (and for those who I have tutored), the answer has been to select one ‘all round expert’ to follow. Find a marketing “guru” who you feel comfortable with. Someone who you’ve read a little about and believe can educate you in the rights and wrongs of online product creation and marketing.
Most importantly, take a look at the writing style of the “guru” you are thinking of learning from. And ask yourself?
- Is this a writing style that I can understand?
- Does this “guru” have a natural ability to put a lot of information across to me in a clear and readable fashion?
- Has this so called “guru” really done this for themselves? Or to put it another way – do they know what they are talking about?
Now Focus On This Person Until You’ve Achieved Online Success
Having answered the above questions and chosen your expert – * follow them * until you have become successful yourself.
If you’ve chosen wisely, then having purchased some of your gurus information, they won’t mind when you come back to ask the occasional direct question.
Do you know by follow knowledgeable experts, they won’t mind sharing a little extra information with you?
But, best of all if you concentrate on one person’s advice at a time, you are far more likely to make a success of your own online business – if only because you won’t waste loads of your time trying out a little bit from everyone, and being pulled in so many directions that you end up achieving nothing.
