Internet Marketing can really make you SICK… You don’t believe me?
People are literally going INSANE…
Check out the many piles of files on your desk top – the many unread eBooks, the half finished projects and all that other CRAP! that lingers on your computer, gathering DUST…
OH Boy, that felt GOOD.. Now, I’ve got that off my chest… What am I actually talking about here?
I’m talking about INTERNET MARKETERS Disease… “A Thousand Ways To Appear as If… but Never Really Getting Started” – If the Internet were a Hostpital, the CYBER wards would be chocked FULL of people who:
1) Collect TOO much Information and do NOTHING with it
2) NEVER finish ANY project first without starting a NEW one – Spending hours of Unproductive time FLITTING from one project to another
3) Listen to EVERYONE & everything but never focus on ANYONE or any one thing…
4) Do not have any sort of plan.
Need I go on ?
In fact, this was ME…. just a few short months ago… I was SICK, a SICK man with no real PLAN… just a whole bunch of marketing CRAP on my desktop and a thousand emails from every Internet Marketer on the PLANET…
I needed to FOCUS, and Focus FAST… it was either Sickness and a SLOW painful Internet Marketing DEATH or give myself a KICK up the ASS (this can be hard to do BALANCED on one leg, but none the less – INVIGORATING – lol )…. I needed answers, I needed RESULTS and I needed them Quick…
It was MAKE or BREAK time ….
Can you relate to this?, how many things have you STARTED in your life and simply gave up, you got tired of trying and it became too hard, you simply shifted focus on to something else – but had you continued – you would have become an absolute EXPERT by now, and your life could have been changed for the BETTER… with me, this would be several, perhaps as many as a Dozen different things….
I, WE – You, ME – simply gave up!…. now look at us – being DRIVEN to distraction by Internet Marketing Disease…
OK, now here come the POSITIVE bits.
Internet Marketing is not the COMPLICATED puzzle, some Marketers would have you believe. It helps SOME Internet Marketers to make you believe Internet Marketing is complicated, as THEY can then SELL you their products to help you to UNRAVEL this imaginary puzzle. I’m saying SOME Marketers here, as this is perhaps a small minority – as MOST marketers NOW, tend to offer GENUINE products to help and assist you in your Internet Marketing journey..
Complicated it certainly isn’t. Here are the Basics.
1) You write content
2) You put it in a Website, Blog, Squidoo Lens, Video or Article etc., etc
3) You Monetize it
4) You drive traffic to it.
5) You build a list to retain as many of these prospects & customers as possible, so you can market to them in the future.
Now, information on how to do all of the above is available out there freely on the Internet. This is why this business is such a BRILLIANT business to be in, you can actually get started literally for FREE… sure you need to buy a domain name, hosting and an autoresponder. But compared with the costs of starting other businesses, the outlay is virtually PEANUTS..
Now here is a quick story about ME, then I’ll get back to YOU – OK?
My first 5 months in Intenet Marketing amounted to NOTHING… or so I thought. You see in monetary terms, it did amount to ZERO… I worked 5 months, approx 50 hours a week for a big FAT ZERO… but at the end of Month 5, I made a sale on Clickbank…
Now, OK, it was only a few dollars – but it was worth SO much more than dollars, as it brought home to me that this business ACTUALLY WORKS! YES, it DOES…Yaaaaay!
So had my efforts in the previous 5 Months been WASTED… No – because I now had the grounding, I now had SOME Knowledge to MOVE it forward.
I had been creating the MOMENTUM I needed to make my first sale over those previous 5 Months. This led to not only my FIRST Sale, but also to the many more that followed..
My point is this – just suppose, I had GIVEN UP in Month 4. And just stopped…. like MANY people do? I would have just ADDED something else to the list of things I started but NEVER finished… I wouldn’t have made my first sale, I wouldn’t have made any more sales. The Internet Sickness would have taken hold and I would now be a VICTIM of “IF ONLY”…..
And this is why, YOU Must NEVER GIVE UP… You give up – YOU LOSE…. You carry on, you WILL find a way to make it pay – and you will WIN…
YES, it’s hard… IT SUCKS… but so does continually Kicking yourself up the ASS……
My plan for you.
1) Unclutter your Desktop – Unclutter your LIFE… Get rid of anything likely to cause Internet Sickness.
2) Focus on ONE thing at a time, don’t spread yourself too THIN! – pace yourself, it’s better to learn slowly than not at all.
3) Realise, it is a SIMPLE business, – Content – Get It out There – Monetize It, – Drive Traffic To It, – Build A List – Market to The List… It’s NOT Rocket Science..
4) Just DO IT… Do It till it works…
There is plenty out there for EVERYONE… Yes, some people are RUNNING away with it… but they had many days & months when “NOTHING WORKED”..
It won’t run out – there is PLENTY for everyone, there are MILLIONS of customers out there for US…and THOUSANDS of NEW ones coming on to the Internet EVERY Day… The GURU’s don’t have it all between them… they only have a teeny, tiny FRACTION….
The possibilities are ENDLESS…
Now is YOUR Time….
You’re A Long Time Dead…

Introduction by Keith Everett
As you know we feature guest Bloggers here on KMMT every now and again, some are experienced marketers who are making a lot of money, but Kenny, a student living in Colorado, USA – caught my eye as he is using techniques from Master Marketer Jason Fladlien, whose techniques, I myself use in my daily Internet Marketing. Here he explains in layman’s terms how he got started and how he uses the Warrior Forum to further his Internet Marketing career.
How A Complete Newbie Made His First $100 Online – By Kenny Wyser
A little while ago I had my first $100 day, what an awesome feeling! I thought I would share how I did it, so that anyone struggling can try it out as well.
By the way it only took about a week from when I started this method until I had the $100 day. This is easy stuff anyone can do this.
The first thing I did was find a really good product on RAP bank, I chose them because they do instant commissions and most of their products offer 100% commissions on the front end, which is awesome. I found a product that really caught my eye and when I read the sales page I really wanted to buy it, I figured if I wanted it, other people would want it as well.
The particular product I chose happened to be a Jason Fladlien product, he’s awesome. So I read through that ebook and it really was great, so I knew I could promote it with confidence. Next I took the basic concepts from that ebook and wrote my own ten page ebook. I did not copy anything, all I did was take what I had learned and wrote a more simplified version of what he taught in the book.
Then I created a squeeze page listing all of the benefits of my free report and collected emails from my subscribers on the squeeze page. Here is the process people went through when they put in their email address:
1. Page telling them to check their email and confirm. I told them,they can’t get the free gift until they confirm their email, this helps with people that just want the free gift and will never actually confirm their email address. On this same confirmation page I had a little bit about the product I was promoting and why it’s so awesome.
2. Next they confirm their email and get sent to a download page which has a link to the free report I just created and another little bit about my affiliate product.
3. They get the first email which introduces them to my email list and what they can be expecting, I’ll get more into the autoresponder messages in a second.
4. The report I made is actually useful and also has a few affiliate links sprinkled in it as well as a long paragraph recommendation at the end.
So that is what happens at the beginning, now I’ll talk about what I actually put in my autoresponder series.
I hate the giant email lists where every single email is an affiliate link. I figured most people felt the same way so I wanted to make my list different.
I flat out told people that yes I would be promoting to them, but everything I ever promote would be something that I have used and loved myself (which is true). I would also be giving them real value in the emails I send out, which is also true.
I filled in the first 6 emails which came out to a little less than 2 weeks. The first 5 emails were nothing but useful content, it was either something I had learned that helped me, or a link to a useful article or video or something, no affiliate links.
The 6th email was a recommendation to a product that I had bought recently that was a great deal and really had incredible value to it, I loved the product and so I told my list about it. I was an affiliate for it and made that clear to my list.
Now I have everything set up and am ready to send some traffic to it. The first thing I did was put a link to my squeeze page in my Warrior Forum Signature.
After about a day of participating a bit more than usual in the forum, I had a total of 15 subscribers and already one commission from the affiliate product I was promoting! Which happened to be $17.
Here is the part that really made me excited. I decided to release a free WSO (Warrior Special Offer) and had a link to my squeeze page in the WSO offer. This brought me just under 100 subscribers and 6 sales of my affiliate product!
That gave me 100 new subscribers to my list and just over $100, not bad I’d say.
This is a method that literally anyone could do. It doesn’t take that much time and all you need is a bit of elbow grease and time. Yes it takes a little bit of start-up cash but not much.
I hope this inspires people to get started, gain some confidence and give you some ideas!
Thanks for reading.
