Building the Contact List

I'm sure everyone by now has heard a million times over how important it is to have a large following, who has over time, gotten to know you and trust you.

A good way to start is get yourself out there. Don't be afraid to try things for the first time. It's okay if you make a mistake. I think by trying you learn much better than to read too much on how to do something. Reading too much can be an overload of information for your brain.

Since I've started looking for ways to expand my list of contacts, I have read many articles, listened to webinars, read e-books galore. One thing I kept asking was for someone, just one person to have a program that will show me step by step how to, for example, setup an "OTO" (one time offer). I have yet to find any program out there with complete directions. First I have to buy part one, then I have to buy part two, and so on. I have spent what little money I have on programs that don't even come close to what they say can be done. :(

Be careful and don't be quick to buy everything that looks good, because that is the whole idea for some marketers. Their website is made to grab your money and never see you again.

Don't forget your good friend "Google"! You can get many Free programs to help you on your way.

Get signed up to good Traffic Sites, and become affiliates to earn some small cash that can help you with some of the purchases you want to make. This way you're spending money that is earned and not out of your pocket.

Set up a blog with information you feel people are interested in. Once you do that you can start putting your link in all the traffic sites so that people get to see you and start to get familiar with you.

Until we meet again.

Trials and Tribulations.

Hello Fellow Marketers,

My opening topic is to let you know what the contents will be in this Blog.

This blog will mainly be for all the Newbies out there who could use some helpful information, suggestions, or some guidance to maybe help You avoid alot of wasted time and money. To put you on track to a place where you feel comfortable to venture on your own gathering knowledge and experiences to bring back and share with your fellow Novice Marketer.

Any and All Information from Successful Marketers is Welcome and Appreciated!

I will be shooting straight from the hips, => meaning... Speaking the Truth, telling it like it is according to My Experiences with different programs and Many Traffic Sites.

A little about me; I am a Mother of two, a Granny of two, and a pet owner of a beautiful dog and cat. I love to sew, craft, walk my dog and design jewelry.
I've always fantasized about being a Successful online Internet Marketer, until one day I figured, Hey!, instead of fantasizing why not try it. At least I could say I tried, if all else failed.
(That is the Only time the word "fail" came out of my mouth, or through my fingers, because I am definately someone who sees a glass half full!)

Now, when I first started, work related navigation on the computer was easy, but when it came to,"Splash Page", "Autoresponder", "Website", "Downline", "Html", "OTO",...Yikes! I felt overwhelmed and overloaded.
You see, one of my problelms, which I still deal with, is Getting Sidetracked! I say that because there is a lot of excellent material online, and I want to absorbe it all. Staying on track is important, and doings procedures one-at-a-time will bring you to your final results, quicker.

So I say the best place to start is, try to find a Mentor who you feel is someone You would like to be like. Gather as much information you can on that person, like the programs they are into, read their blog, and definately check out their site. See if it's something you'd like to be doing, and don't just look at their income.(Remember, that varies per member). If you join and represent something you aren't really into, the odds are against you. While looking for a Mentor, you should always be trying to build your list of contacts.(more on that in the next posting)

I will be listing some really good traffic sites that are Free to use with good results. Some traffic sites where if you upgrade to a paid member, you will get Excellent results. A good program where I am a member, and another program where I am a member through a 60 day trial. A Great way to check out a program for yourself, hands on!

It's been almost 2 years, yes 2 years since I started reading about, and listening to, hundreds of success stories. If you are Not a computer techie I really believe finding a Mentor is the smart way to go. It sounds so simple, but believe me when I say it will be one of the hardest choices you'll have to make. As I'm sure you already know.~

Please be patient while I iron out all the kinks in my blog, because my main concern is having a wide variety of information for the Newbie/Novice, at their fingertips.

Have something to add? Please do.
