Regardless of what type of online business you want to run there is always one single truth that permeates all of them. It is a truth that does not matter if you are an affiliate marketer, a bum marketer, or an eBook creator. Social book marketing or Pay Per Click this single truth is the difference between the successful and all the wannabes.
Education. Now I am not saying spend every waking moment studying and never doing, you need to do, but doing along will get you nowhere. You need to educate yourself, educate yourself on your failures. Why did something not work? Why did something else work? How are the big players making money? But more importantly you need to know how.
There are people who want to become bum marketers (article marketing) but do not know how to write and submit articles. They will always fail, why? Because they do not know HOW to do the business model they are just trying to make money without any of the work.
Let us take a step back, do you think a doctor woke up one day and said, “hey there is money in helping the sick, ill be a doctor” and the next day people just started paying him to be a doctor? No! He had to get lots of schooling and education in order to perform the duties of the job or business that he wanted.
This is the big difference between all the people who want to make money online and all the people who just want the money without all the work. As a business you have to understand not everyone is cut out for it, just like not everyone is cut out to be a doctor. It takes time, some money, and a lot of education sometimes by trial and error.
The good news is internet marketing does not if come close to costing a fraction the cast of being a doctor. At least at first and you can learn how to be successful if you are willing to take the time to learn what you need to know to become successful.
