Internet Marketing: I Don't Know Everything and Neither Do You
Internet marketing can be confusing, I think you'll agree.
You read so much conflicting advice, all of which promises
to solve your particular problems. It needn't be this way.
I've learnt lots of invaluable skills & techniques from both
free and paid-for resources, produced by so-called gurus.
And you can do this too! Find a 'voice' that you trust, or
simply subscribe to a few internet marketing related ezines;
read, learn, then do!
And ignore the rest... for now. This article gets you started!
INTERNET MARKETING IS CONFUSING, ISN'T IT?
you go, internet marketing sites tell you that they
have the solution to your
money-making woes! These sales-
letter sites all know how to 'Create An Avalanche
they all know how to 'Skyrocket Traffic'; they all offer
well, whatever it is that you're looking for!
They all claim that their
product, and only their product,
is the answer.
(Some even have answers
to questions you hadn't even thought
of - now *that* is confusing!)
The trouble is that there are SO MANY marketing sites, and
they often contain
conflicting information; so it *is easy*
to feel confused and overwhelmed
by it all.
So WHAT do you believe, and WHO do you trust?
HOW do you learn?
Remember! None of us know everything about internet
marketing, and we ALL need help from time to time.
And, with hard study
and application on your part, some of
these internet marketing sites can really
help you succeed
Yes, but which ones?

these people know what they're
talking about. They understand internet marketing,

Please don't misunderstand!
I don't expect to be as
successful as Dr Ken Evoy or Yanik
Silver after reading their ebooks, or using
but I do expect to be more successful, especially if I *do*
what they suggest (rather than just read about it).
And that is the point.
ALL of the above individuals are very
bright, hard-working folk - they *do*,
and they learn from
what they do. (They probably also learn from each other,
They all offer to share their knowledge and skills to help
be more successful online. Sometimes advice is free, and
other times you have
to pay. Either way, you win!
WHAT ABOUT NEWSLETTERS AND EZINES?
else do I turn to for advice?
Well, I subscribe to a select group of newsletters
to do with all aspects of internet marketing. I recommend
of the following publications which are pitched between
beginner and expert.
I recommend that you only subscribe to a few newsletters;
or editors you feel comfortable with and trust.
And then learn from them.
ALL of the editors below put a lot
of time and effort into their publications
simply to help
you succeed online! Take advantage, and learn!
