You may already know that I came online in 2005 and didn’t make any money for a full year. I read everything I could find, listened to audio recordings, and started several blogs. But I just couldn’t figure out how to make any money.
When I look back at that time now, it is easy for me to see what I was doing wrong. I had not chosen a niche, didn’t have a product to promote, and had no free giveaway. That’s just the beginning of what I did not have in place. Once I began to put the pieces together, I began to make money.
What’s holding you back? Do you have a niche you are willing to stick with until you start making some money? What about a way to build a list of subscribers and a product to sell? Take a look at what successful marketers are doing online. You can model what they are doing to see how it is done.
When I created the outline for the upcoming DocomJumpstart course, I was thinking about that first year when I was new to online marketing. I wanted to teach people how to have a step by step model to start making money. I shared the outline with Dr. Jeanette Cates and she agreed to co-teach it with me. She also remembers what it is like to be a ‘newbie’, even though it has been much longer since she was one herself. She has now taught thousands of people how to make income online, while I have taught only about two hundred.
This course means a lot to me because it will enable so many people to start their internet business and see what it’s like to start making money online. Sometimes making just a few hundred dollars a month can change your life. It can also be the start of building an online empire and making as much as you want to on the internet.
