When I first started online, I noticed that each time I decided to follow guidelines given in an internet marketing course to accomplish a task, somewhere along the way, I would end up straying into doing my own thing to speed up the process.
What usually happened at such times was, I would go on to making a total mess of things that would cost me a lot in terms of time and money. Then I would return to following the instructions, and prove to myself that doing so was much faster, easier, and much less costly. A lot of internet marketers, especially the newbies, operate in this manner – They don’t like playing by the book.
Sometimes you indeed need to develop your styles and techniques for doing things. Still, you first need to follow keenly the guidance of someone who has successfully been through what you are now trying to accomplish. In so doing, you will save yourself the trials, errors, and pain experienced by those who have gone before you.
Yes, to become successful in any area, you must first find someone who has been successful in your field of interest and copy what they did, to the letter. Now, while this will certainly not take as much time is if you had chosen to go without any guidance, it would take some time, and you must prepare yourself to give it time.
Far too many people are getting into the make-money-online business with a quick-fix mentality and are making themselves an easy prey to online thieves, bandit, and scammers. Open your eyes, shake yourself, take a deep breath in, and exhale s-l-o-w-l-y. Making money online is no get-rich-quick affair, but a business affair with principles that you must follow before you can even begin to smell success. If you see it otherwise, then (as we say here in Trinidad and Tobago), you are only “spinning your top in the mud” – wasting your time.
Find a Mentor
There are a couple of straightforward, trustworthy, ethical, and honest, successful internet marketers out there with excellent track records – seek one out from among them to follow. Invest in yourself and allow that person to guide you by way of the various courses and video tutorials they provide, and please follow their instructions to the letter. If you choose correctly, they will be teaching you the things they do daily in their business.
Failing to follow instructions is one of several reasons for the high failure rate in the make-money-online business today. Too many people have courses they bought, stacked up on their computers and elsewhere that they either never went through, or went halfway through and are now claiming that they didn’t work for them. For example, let’s look at Solo ads.
Now, I will understand if you have never been given instructions via free or purchased courses on how to buy solo ads. What I cannot understand is people having availed themselves with these courses (both free and paid), and still failing to implement the techniques and strategies shown in them and then to cry out, “This thing doesn’t work!”
Why is it working for the person who created it, and it’s not working for you? As I said before, choose who you follow carefully, and they will teach you the techniques and strategies they use in their business daily. If it is working for them, it will work for you also, but you must follow instructions – play by the book.
Avoid Garbage Traffic
You need to know that the traffic you are purchasing will be targeted traffic and not the garbage that sources like safe lists, traffic exchanges, and others offer, and solo ads can be one of many alternatives. However, as in everything, there is a process to follow, and failing to do so will produce similar results to what you would get from using the familiar traffic sources.
You should never go out and purchase as many clicks as you can afford from the first solo seller you contact. You will very quickly exhaust your advertising budget without getting the desired returns, if any, at all. You would need first to purchase a small amount for a test, and if you get good results, buy more – if not, then move to another seller.
Yes, there are a couple of things you would need to find out before purchasing traffic from solo sellers, and one of them is from where the traffic originates.
You don’t need traffic coming from all over the world or from third world countries like India, Africa, China, the Caribbean, etc. – the type of traffic safe lists and traffic exchanges offer. Instead, you need traffic coming from countries like Australia, Canada, the UK, the USA, Ireland, and New Zealand, where people have disposable income and credit cards.
These countries must be specifically targeted in all your advertising campaigns – doing otherwise is just a waste of time and money. Marketers refer to this type of traffic as Top Tier Traffic, and they convert into sales.
You will also need to find out if the traffic the solo seller is offering is appropriate for your offer. For instance, if the seller has a list of gardening enthusiasts and you are promoting an internet marketing software tool, you will get zero opt-ins and zero sales promoting to that list. In earlier times, I made some very foolish mistakes concerning the purchasing of sole ads and lost some money, so I’m writing from personal experience.
Even though I had in my possession a course with all the instructions and guidance I needed to do solo ads correctly, I still went ahead and did my own thing and paid the price for not “playing by the book.”
Since then, I have learned my lesson well, and I trust that if you are presently going down the road I was on then, you would immediately make a detour unto another that leads to sure success through playing by the book.
A Test For You
I have at my disposal presently, the Sarah Staar 5 part video tutorial on how to get instant traffic to any website or affiliate offer and be making sales within an hour, which I will be giving to you today for free. My only request of you in return is that you follow the instructions as given.
As long as you do that, you will begin seeing the results that have been evading you for so long. For your good, please play by the book.
