How Do You Shorten the Internet Marketing Learning Curve

The one thing I have been trying to figure out about other people who get involved in internet marketing is how do I help them shorten the curve?

The reality is i’m not entirely sure but I do have a few suggestions. The first of which is be stubborn. Decide it is going to happen and stick to that idea and be really stubborn about it.

The second is start with one area and do not leave it…you can be really stubborn about that too. Stick to that area until you have mastered it.

I think that the journey to get there is more beneficial than the goal. The sooner you commit to that goal…the sooner you can you can get started on that work and sooner you can grow into that person who can actually attain that goal.

What can you do to help yourself?

1) Commit to the process and understand that the goal will come

2) Do the work and learn it one step and process at a time

3) Don’t ask for advice from people who have never done what you are trying to do

4) Get a mentor…..get help from someone who can actually help you do what you want to do

5) Take the advice when it is given and don’t think you know better

6) Enjoy the ride. It’s gonna have highs and lows and ups and downs so enjoy it and don’t expect anything else.

The real Internet marketing cycle by liam kearney

Internet Marketing Cycle – Does Your Journey Look Like This

For most people who come in to internet marketing or home business opportunities the driving force always tends to be money or lack of money which is why we get all the hype with the marketing

Most people who get started have an idea that the journey will go along the lines of this: get started, don’t learn new skills, put little effort in and earn lots of money very quickly.

The reality is very different for most people. They come in and don’t put the effort in and get very frustrated very quickly and quit or just can’t decide on which opportunity is for them.

 

 

There are some people who actually stick it out and choose that they will make it and get ‘internet marketing’ to work for them.

These are the people that understand that if they do the work then they will get the results. They stop looking for the results right now and just get stuck in and do the work and leave the results take care of themselves.

It is the same habits that people who are top earners in any industry have. They concentrate on doing the working and learning the skills and they do this one skill at a time. They are patient and know that the hard work will pay off.

I understand this now but really did not have a clue when I started out.

The idea that I would have to work on and learn about myself in the process of starting and growing a business was way out of my thought process.

I see now that if I am not willing/able to grow as a person then my business will never grow.

When I figured that out, I started going to event, seminars, courses and getting mentors and am making huge strides now.

I know now that I will be successful and that it does not happen overnight.

Those ‘overnight successes that we see on tv and hear on the radio have got 5-10 years of hard work at least behind them before the became successful overnight.

Are you willing to put that work in for success and a life that you want on your terms?

Liam Kearney Blog Post on working smart

Internet Marketing Are You Working Smart

Think about the last 12 months in your life

Have you been working towards something or have you just been working?

I have just realised how much work that i have been doing that has not been taking me towards my goal in as fast a way as possible

How many of you have started out doing something new and asked someone for advice? Then you get the advice and what do you do with it…..that’s right…absolutely nothing.

We think we know better and go off to do it our own way.

Was there a point to asking for advice if we are not going to do anything with it?

But we don’t really look at it this way though most of the time. We just take the advice and ignore it and think we know better even though we have never done that thing before.

How insane is that when you look at it?

So you go up and ask someone who has lost weight or is making more money than you ‘how did you do it’ and then they tell you and you decide that it is better to stay in your comfort zone and not do it the way that they tell you.

You decide that you will get the result you want by doing things the same way that you have always done them and expect to get a different result than you have now.

I figured that I have been doing this with my affiliate marketing and that really bothers me now so I am now taking action about all those things I need to do and that advice that I didn’t take.

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next few months.

Liam Kearneys Blog about why you should stop worrying about when you will get there and just concentrate on doing the work and trust that you will get there

Are You Worrying About When It Will Arrive

So you are new to internet marketing and you are excited cos you are going to make 10k per month

Then you do some work and nothing happens and you start to get frustrated

Now what do you do????

This is the point where most people will get overwhelmed and want to give up and want to know how fast they can make a return on their money.

The honest answer is ‘it depends on  you’.

That’s a crap answer if you were looking for a specific day isn’t it.

The truth is that you will get out what you put in.

Most people will come in and do a bit in one area and then do a bit in another area and won’t make any money because they do not commit to the process of learning a new skill set and putting that into practice everyday.

I don’t say this pointing fingers at anyone because I went through that phase of unrealistic expectations too but I didn’t give up.

The more you worry about the goal and when it is coming, the more you are distracted from doing the work that will get you there.

It’s like going to the gym, You don’t expect to lift really heavy weight straight away. You understand that you will get stronger over time and eventually reach your goal.

Internet marketing is the exact same but because so much of the marketing is rags to riches and fast cars then it brings in alot of people with those sorts of expectations which means that they will get a rude awakening at some point because it just does not work like that.

Look at anything in your life that you are really good at now, sports or career or anything. Did you just have  a go at it and realise that you were one of the best in the world straight away….I didn’t think so.

If you want to get good then you need to understand it is the same as anything else. You need to plant the seeds and then look after them and then wait until the season comes around to harvest.

Don’t try to hurry the process because you can’t and you will get really pissed off and frustrated.

Stop worrying about the when and just know that if you are willing to do the work then it will come together for you.

Do something today that scares you blog by liam kearney

Are You Scared

If you are not then you are probably not pushing yourself

I used to think that the idea was to get to a point where you are very comfortable doing whatever it is that you do

Boy was I wrong. If you are not working towards something that scares you then you are stuck in your comfort zone.

I’m a bit scared about the event I am attending this weekend but then again that is why I am attending it

Now I’m not necessarily talking mega scared but doing something that you are unsure of and a bit afraid of is healthy and will help you to grow massively.

The growth is the key.

I always thought it was the stuff that you got but now I realise that it is actually what happens to you on the journey to achieving those goals that is the best part.

You have to learn about yourself and grow and do things that you never thought were possible in order to obtain those things that you have never had before.

I never knew that every time you go on a course or try out something new or make mistakes that you grow as a person, I had just chalked it up to experience.

Start today with something that scares you and you won’t even recognise yourself in 6 months never mind a few years down the road.

Are You Waiting for Perfection or Just Giving Yourself Excuses

Are you waiting for the conditions to be just right before you do that thing

That thing that you know will make a massive difference for you or your business or your relationships

Most people do but you need to know something……conditions are never perfect so just do it now

Don’t wait for things to be perfect because if you do, you will never start and if you never start then you will never get to wherever it is that you want to go.

Some people get stuck in learning mode…you know the one. We’ve all been there. If I just knew that one thing that would make a difference, when I learn this new thing I’ll start then….sound familiar. I recognise it too. This is one of the excuses that we use to stay where we are.

I’ll wait for a sunny day to start exercising.

I’ll wait until I talk to this new mentor/business man and I will start then.

What are you waiting for to start your business today?

Stop waiting and start doing.

You don’t need to know more about it, you’ll figure it out as you go and learn what you need on the way.

 

Liam Kearney Blog about are you asking yourself the right question to get where you want to be in life?

What Questions Are You Asking Yourself by Liam Kearney

Have you been asking yourself the right questions to get where you want to go?

Yes…..so that means that you are living the life of your dreams right now..yeah?

I didn’t think so. Find out the number 1 question that you need to ask yourself to get there today

What is that thing that you want to do?

You know the one thing that you have wanted to do for years…..the one that you are afraid to tell people about because it is so big.

Do you have that picture in your head right now?

Good. Now you need to ask yourself the one big question that you have been putting off and is the one thing that can actually help you get that big dream.

How are you going to accomplish it?

Are you willing to look foolish in the beginning to get there?

Most people are not ready to do that. Everybody is fully capable of doing it but few people will have the willingness to do it.

That is fantastic news for you because if you are willing to ask the how question and to do the work then you can put the work in now and know that most people will give up over the next year. This means that if you are willing to do work for the next 12 months and keep going then it will get easier because the amount of people competing at the higher levels is very small and the payoffs are much bigger.

Do I have your attention yet?

That is exciting isn’t it.

LIam Kearney Blog: Can you help someone, then you are a leader

Are You Willing to Take a Chance on Yourself and Lead

Are you willing to take a chance on yourself?

Yeah….Really?

Are you willing to help some people to get where you are?

Then you are a leader…….Why are you not leading then?

Most people don’t think they have anything of value to offer anyone else.

Are you one of them?

One of the things I have been doing over the last while is looking for people who will help me to get where I want to go and essentially that means that I was looking for a leader….someone that I can learn from.

But I had not put myself in that category. I had not realised that I can a be a leader and help other people to get where I am as I go along.

Do you think you have anything that you can teach somebody else? I know that you do but you don’t value it enough to do that.

If you put 20 people of different professions in a room, each one of those is a leader and an expert for all the rest of the people in the room. You are that expert.

Take the first step today and understand that whatever experience you have today is of value to a large section of people but you undervalue it and think everybody knows it.

The other side of this is that most people do not want to lead because they will not get over the slight discomfort at the beginning to actually turn themselves into a leader in their own eyes and as a result they will quit.

Don’t let this happen to you!

Are you throwing your money away on advertising?

Just Throw Your Money Away

Have you been marketing for a while now?

Have you been thinking, if I can just spend another 100, i’ll figure it out?

Have you been spending money and not knowing why it is not working or what you are getting in return for your cold hard cash?

Well, my guess is you are not tracking what is going on. You don’t know which of your pages is converting better than the others and you are not willing to spend the time to find out.

Am I wrong?

Do you know what the difference between you and the guy who is earning 10,000 per month is? He is paying alot of attention to where he spends his money and is tracking everything and my guess is that you are not.

It’s ok, don’t feel bad about it, we’ve all done it. The important thing to realise is that, tracking is not complicated and it is a skill that you can learn reasonable quickly.

There are various types of tracking software, free paid, simple or really elaborate. There is an idea out there that paid software is easier than paid but I believe that this is also down to the fact that people are lazy and if there is a way to do less work, most people will do that.

It is completely up to yourself but I would highly recommend you begin with free or low cost software depending on your preferences, the reason for this is that you will have to learn and understand it better than you will if you just by a package to use.

Figure it out and then it will help you to save money on your advertising for the rest of your life.

Stop being lazy and don’t spend another penny until you get your tracking in order.

Learn it, use it and reap the benefits.

Liam Kearney Blog about the path of least resistance

The Easy Way or the Productive Way

Are you always looking for the easy way to do something?

Most people will look for more information to find the easiest way to get to where you are going but….

Most people spend so much time getting more information to find the easiest and best way of doing something and get stuck in info gathering mode

I don’t worry so much about finding the easiest rout or the path of least resistance anymore. The most important thing is actually starting and doing something and then you just figure out better ways of doing things as you go along.

If you wait for the easiest/ most travelled route, I would almost 100% say that it will not work for you. If everyone is doing it this way and most people are failing then you do not want the easiest route. You want to find someone who has done it before you who can help you get there or just figure it out as you go along.

The route to get there is not important to me now, getting there is the most important thing for me.
