Overwhelm has been a major part of the beginner’s online marketing experience over the past many years. And with good reason. Online hold me
When they asked the question – “Where do I start?” – that simple question was rarely answered in simple terms.
Most of the so-called beginners’ courses were not for the true beginner. Not at all. They were being taught by gurus who did not fail them exactly, but although they had extensive marketing and/or technological backgrounds, they had long forgotten what it was like to be a beginner.
So many people beginners ended up in overwhelm, intellectual frustration, and emotional fatigue, and too often they just gave up.
The Cure for Overwhelm
Like anything else you learn, you have to start at the beginning and build a solid foundation. Overwhelm is experienced in direct proportion to the lack of basics. That’s not a brilliant insight. That’s just common sense.
So your decision to join the ranks of Internet marketers has to be accompanied by another equally important decision – that you will commit to building a long term business by beginning at the beginning.
Don’t shoot for get-rich-quick results. They are a fantasy. There isn’t one successful Internet marketer who hasn’t built his or her business in a focused, systematic, step-by-step approach. Not one. So don’t be dazzled by golden pitches and over-the-moon promises.
Don’t make the mistake of rushing. You’ll rush yourself right out of the business and all the extraordinary possibilities that marketing online holds for your future.
And remember, as with all kinds of marketing you can choose to market in a hard-sell way or a heart-sell or soft-sell manner.
