If you are reading this blog, then you are clearly involved in Internet marketing on some level. That is a good thing… however, I’ll bet I already know something about you (and it’s not a good thing). I am willing to bet that you spend most of your days reading articles like this one, gaining as much knowledge as you can.
Sure, that sounds like a good thing, but when you spend all of your time reading and none of your time implementing anything you have learned, at the end of the day you are still broke.
Now, I know you are most likely feeling like a big loser now and rightfully so, but things are about to look up for you. In fact, you are going turn your life around and start actually doing something for a change.
First, more about you…
You have spent countless hours reading everything you could find about getting more traffic to your websites. Add ten loser points to yourself if you have ever started a chat forum thread with, “How do I get more traffic.” Add ten more points if you spend time answering other newbie chat forum questions as if you were an authority on the topic. Actually, add twenty points for that. There is nothing worse than a loser that pretends he is successful. Ok there is one thing worse. There’s the guy that constantly refreshes his AdSense account to see if he’s made a few more pennies and then celebrates when he sees that he’s up to forty cents for the day.
You are so pathetic!
Being a loser is not a birth defect. At any given time you can decide to turn your life around and start hanging with the cool kids, but the first thing that you have to do is recognize that you are an Internet marketing loser. Before you read another word of this article, I want you to turn to call somebody that you know and fess up that you are a loser, but today you are going to change all of that. Then hang up on them before they can say anything. A little attitude and mystery is always a good characteristic to have.
Ok, now that you have decided today is the day you will stop being a little bitch and start earning some money, it’s time to figure out how to do it. The first thing is to stop reading pitches for other people’s get rich schemes. From now on, you only listen to me. If I tell you to buy something then there must be a pretty good reason for it and if there is, you can be sure that I will be explaining it to you.
The problem with all of those ebooks that you’ve been buying is they are pulling you in too many different directions. There’s one book telling you how to do article marketing, another book telling you how to make squeeze pages, and yet another book that teaches you to create a blog that will do it all for you. I’m sure that there are some good tips in each of these books, but they all have a time and a place and you’re not there yet. I don’t care how long you’ve been at this, you’re still not doing things right. If I’m wrong, then stop reading and leave this site right now.
If you are still reading, then you are a self admitted Internet marketing loser and that is a good thing… well it’s good that you can admit it.
So here is the meat of this article. Wait for it. Wait for it.
Oh crap, I just realized that 24 was on and I don’t think that I set my DVR. I need to wrap this up. Here it is in a nut shell…
No matter where you are in your career as an online marketer, the most important thing that you should constantly focus on is building a list. Build an email list. Build a Twitter list. If you’re not on Twitter, get on it right now and sign up for an account. It doesn’t matter if you sell software, ebooks, or homemade dog biscuits, building a list of people that share a common interest is the most valuable thing you can do as an Internet marketer.
Without a list, your customers click through your affiliate links and you are paid one time. You need a way to capture the customer’s email address before he leaves your court. Once you have the contact information of your customers, you can market similar products to them again and again.
I was going to tell you exactly how to easily build a huge list of cash in hand customers in this article, but Jack Bauer is like the coolest guy on TV and this is the last season of the show. If you join my mailing list, you will get my report that teaches you how to build a list of people that are wanting to buy from you and what to do with the list. I’ll show you how to grow from zero to hundreds in just a few short days. From there it is easy to grow to thousands.
In case you are reading this somewhere other than my site, the address is EBrianRose.com and it’s on the top right of every page.
Jack Bauer now.
