This is the fifth article in the series The Internet Marketing Trap, just click here to start at the begining.
So you think you know a bit about how to do internet marketing, but why isn’t it working for you?
Perhaps you need to look a little deeper at mentors and networking, or is that just another part of the internet marketing trap?
You’ve been around a bit, read a few eBooks, maybe joined a couple of cheap courses, but still struggling to get past a few dollars a day.
Still haven’t quite found the next big thing yet, you always seem to be there just a little too late!
Let’s be frank here, do you really want to make some progress, or are you just going to put your couple of quid on the lottery, and sit back waiting for the next big win?
It Could Be You, It Really could!
Then again, it’ll probably just be someone else again….
You might be armed with a little knowledge? but now it’s like you’re getting out of college and into the real world.
Somewhere you can start to use the skills you’ve learned, to build your business, and start to make some real money, but hang on a minute…
What if you don’t quite make it first time?
Who do you turn to for help?
It’s all that bl**dy teachers fault!
Actually it’s not, IT’S YOURS!
We’re all ultimately responsible for our own success or failure, but it sure can help to have someone to turn to when you need it most.
They can’t do the job for you, that’s up to you, but they might be able to point you in the right direction, and get you back on the path to success.
Enter the Mentor!
Even the most successful entrepreneurs or business owners, tend to have AT LEAST one other person that they can turn to when they need it.
It might not be because they don’t know what to do, or are struggling, it’s just that quite often when you get a couple of people together, they stand more chance of making a good decision.
Strong willed and independent is fine, but sometimes an “outsider” has a totally different view, or even a clearer perspective, of what is really required.
So it’s not always just a single mentor, and they certainly don’t all have to be guru’s, just people with similar ambitions to yourself.
When you find yourself working around others with similar ambitions, some might be struggling themselves, but you’ll give each other strength and support to move forward.
Others might have achieved some success and be willing to share some of what they have learned along the way, these might be considered as as your mentor, or mentors.
We all have to find our own path, to whatever level of success we want to achieve, but it can really help when you surround yourself with the right people.
Just look at most of the big name marketers, how many work solely on their own?
It’s called INTER-NET marketing for a reason!
So why not stop beating your head against that brick wall?
Find someone you can work with and just smash it down!
