So are you a hair pulling marketer? As in, are you pulling your own hair out to try to figure it all out?
Everyone goes through struggles of course as diving into the get quick rich schemes of course are just that, SCHEMES!
It does not have to be this way though if you learn and actually use what you learn. Trying to re-create the wheel at this point when there are so many marketers out there today doing all these amazing techniques of traffic generation, or developing some great new program. All you have to do is sign up for a list and you can be inundated with offers from affiliates. Now, do not get me wrong, I love being an affiliate for many people.
As word to the wise here as I am not pushing anything (at least in this sentence!) is that you should aleast own the product or have seen some good review copy of it before you start pushing it out to your list. It amazes me how the Guru's put out swipe files for their affiliates to pull emails from, then I end up getting a slew of the same emails from many difference marketers. These guys do not even take the time to edit and change or personalize the content of the email..Weak if you ask me, especially when some of them claim to never follow this practice and always try to make it personal.
I think time have become too much of an issue and they are having some ghost writer or emplyees push these out daily in an attempt to rack up huge commissions with their huge lists. This of course leaves the little man as the "Hair Pulling Marketers" as they obtain only a few sales, if any.
A great way to smooth into the transition of becoming an internet marketer and keep some of that lovely hair on your head would be to join forums and learn from the mistakes of others so that you can become a guru in your niche some day. I have joined Russell Brunson's Tribe (actually as a Platinum member) but this has a free member forum that is good for anyone to join where you can get tips and tricks on almost all areas of marketing. You could pay out for some of this information, but in the beginning, you want to save money, especially in these economic times.
I highly suggest you reduce your stress level by learning everything on your own, which I so stupidely seem to keep doing and enveloping myself in the world of information overload! By getting in on discussions you can learn from others mistakes easier than wasting a lot of time and money on your own. You can also leave links to your site with the signature, which is highly recommended as this can drive traffic for you when you are not there for years to come when others search the forum for information.
So if you are just sitting around wondering how you are going to compensate for economic deficiencies that are occurring,come hang with us at the Dot Com Secrets Tribe!
