I am writing this press release to every Internet Marketing guru like me! Well, now that I think about it, you are probably not like me. I am a 47-year-old Internet Marketing grandfather who lives in the outskirt of upstate New York.
However, just this past April I was desperatly looking for money . I won't disclose to you the details, but the fact is that I was out of money and still had $100s of bills to pay every month!
I was a chief accountant at our local Citibank and when the mortgage crisis hit I was one of the many innocent victims of the corporate greed that created much of this mess. I lost my job and in just a few short months all of my savings were gone as well. Finding a job in the industry was a lesson in futility so I was compelled to re-structure myself.
By chance I came across an inspiring book on Your Portable Empire by Pat O'Bryan and that's when I made up my mind to attempt Internet Marketing.
Shortly thereafter I started looking around on the internet. I bought a couple of ebooks that taught me what to do. I literally followed the instructions, WORD FOR WORD. One book was about how to write articles and ebooks and the other was about generating traffic to your website.
Here is my advise to you! I had never done this before! I was a writer and I had a laptop, but that's about as much as I could bring to the table. On top of it, I had virtually no money! So I had to make things happen on a shoe-string budget!
I ended up spending less than $200, wrote and started selling eBooks of my own and in just over a month, I made more than $12,000 with Internet Marketing. What I’ve since learned is that this is even more tremendous since the first two eBooks I wrote and I sold were both priced at only $15 each.
Here is the strategies:
1. I wrote about a subject that motivated me. 2. I got an inexpensive web hosting package and made my own blog without stress. 3. I created a free WordPress blog at wordpress.com 4. I created a Squidoo page and pointed it to both my blogs. 5. I wrote about the subject and created about 10 posts. I kept adding more and more content throughout the process. 6. I wrote my first eBook and priced it at only $7. 7. I wrote a few articles and submitted them to free article directories. 8. I wrote another powerful eBook and priced it at $10. 9. I continued to post to my blogs in addition to answering emails. 10. Within a few weeks, I was on page 1 of Google as expected 11. I opened an account with PayPal to handle the transactions (for free) 12. I stayed focused even though some days weren’t as encouraging as others.
So now that I’ve had this first experience, I am totally convinced that focused work and determination can create an income through Internet Marketing. Truly, I just wrote about a subject close to my heart. I sold to common men and women who were looking for information – not internet information, but information to help them in their lives.
I was honest, respectful and gave excellent customer service to everyone who contacted me. I learned how to put together an email list and now I am working on ways to sell products to my more than 1400 buyers!
There is still a lot am yet to know. I continue to experiment and learn new things everyday. I’m glad about the future and encourage each of you reading this post to stay focused, spend your money wisely on good quality tools, and BEGIN!
If a grandfather living in the middle of upstate New York and can make $15,000 in just over 4 weeks on his first Internet Marketing offer, then anybody can who is zealous to follow the same or similar approach for success .
