Like many other would-be online marketers I have spent many years in the past buying “stuff” and trying to figure out the best way to start online. I now know a good mentor is the way forward.
If you are looking for a simple, straight forward way to begin online, a mentor can guide you with a time-tested proven plan of action saving you a lot of trial and error. Also if you choose a good mentor your journey can be much easier. Here are some things to look out for when choosing a mentor:
Find someone you can work with, who understands beginners and works at the level that suits you, someone who is good at teaching beginners in a style that suits your learning preferences, for example with videos, manuals, question and answer sessions, Skype, workshops or even telephone calls. Decide if you need individual tuition or group training. With group learning, which is less costly you also have support from other members.
Make sure your mentor has a tried and tested proven plan of action that you can follow and proof it is working for others, that they are genuine fair and honest. Are they offering a system they use themselves, you don’t want to be fobbed-off with out of date manuals. Generally speaking mentors and trainers online are happy to share their knowledge and help others succeed, probably because there is such a wide open market, the internet is in its infancy and there is room for everyone.
Check what training is offered, is it free or at a reasonable cost you can afford? What tools are supplied to help you?
Are there a range of products supplied that are good quality, desirable, and informative that your prospects will be pleased to purchase? Do you need a website or is one provided for you, or maybe you can direct people to ready-made sales-pages (this is probably the easiest option initially).
So you have checked out all the above points, you are happy with your chosen mentor, you have decided on your favourite niche, and you are ready to begin. One final point I would make: Follow the exact formula given don’t deviate until you know what you are doing, you have chosen a mentor with a proven system so let them share it with you, don’t be tempted to do things differently or you could be wasting time and money.
There will be quite a lot of new techniques to learn initially but Solo ads are a fast advertising method. You are buying visitors to your sales pages from Solo ad specialists, they send an email with your message, to their lists of prospective purchasers, on you behalf. Only purchase Solo Ads from Facebook Groups and dedicated websites where success is monitored by feedback, or you could purchase useless lists. Only purchase small quantities to test them, you will probably get about 50 clicks for $35. You can always go back for more if they are successful.
Solo ads are to help you build a list of prospective customers that you can offer products to. Initially you may be able to direct them to your mentor’s sales pages with your own affiliate link, and still get paid for your efforts, building your own group of customers. This will save you time and effort building a website and will mean you can start making money quicker.
Long-term you will probably want your own website and to build your list using an auto-responder, this will enable you to offer a variety of affiliate offers from multiple sources and you can make more money.
When you use Solo ads give away fantastic freebies that are worth paying for, prospects will then know if your free gifts are so good they can trust you with purchases. Your aim is to always have satisfied customers, look after them they are the life-blood of your business.
