Try to become an expert in one internet marketing component at a time and choose a single topic such as article marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), or blogging.
Even article writing becomes a huge field when you really start digging into it I am also into Article writing Business.
How long should an article be?
What is the best way to write an article?
What topic(s) should you write about?
Why should you be writing articles?
Should you manually submit articles or use software to distribute it?
What are the best article directories to submit to?
In fact, even researching the best article directories can take quite a while. How do you find the best directories? Why do you consider them to be the best? Alexa traffic rank? Google PageRank? By the way, this is not a silly topic to research…
There are thousands of article directories on the web. You cannot submit to them all and submitting to some will be a complete waste of time.
Take things on step at a time. Break any topic up into manageable smaller pieces. This will avoid indigestion!
From early childhood we are taught that education is a logical step-by-step process. It doesn’t matter whether you look at the school system, colleges or universities. The principle remains the same. You have to “pass” a subject before you can continue to the next level. Every consecutive year becomes slightly more difficult than the previous year and as you continue your education you are constantly given new and more difficult tasks to complete.
One of my late uncles was a teacher. I remember going to school with him when I was about 8 years old to sort out some textbooks for the start of the new academic year. Looking at some of the “advanced” textbooks some senior grades were using I became quite worried… It looked so difficult! I really had doubts whether I would ever be able to understand any of it! My uncle simply said that if you are able to pass your current grade and proceed to the next grade you will also be able to pass it as well. Hearing him say that helped a lot!
Unfortunately, it does not work this way in internet marketing…
There is no set curriculum in internet marketing. There are no exams you need to pass before you can proceed to the next level.
There is no beginning or end in internet marketing.
Using the above school textbook example, it is like taking all the textbooks for all the grades and putting them all in one room. Instead of giving learners the textbooks they need based on their current level of education, there are several “teachers” standing at the entrance of the room. Some are saying “Go in and choose any book!” Others are saying “Get as many books as you can”. One says “You have to get Book A” while another says “No, forget about Book A, you simply have to get Book Z”. Confusing? For sure!
If you are serious about making money online there very good articles on the topic on New Theory too. By understanding the obstacles a new marketer is bound to face you will be able to prepare yourself, even if only on a subconscious level, to avoid many costly mistakes. You will know what to expect and won’t simply fall for hype.
