How I Got Started in Internet Marketing

I do not remember exactly how I got the idea of internet marketing. I remember that my intention was to find an activity that would allow me to earn enough money to devote to what I like to do that is to medicine and science. As I was finishing the fourth year of medical school I became involved in network marketing sponsored by Amway but I never became convinced that business model and therefore never really devoted the attention it required, plus I was about to start my internship and should having to move out of town and also to be full time in the hospital without the possibility of attending meetings, seminars, conventions, etc.

When I left the network marketing I sought information on alternatives that would allow me to generate income without affecting my medical career. Perhaps the first book I found that was referring to getting rich was precisely "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. Although I think a great work of personal improvement it really didn't tell me the what? and how? To make a business (at least not as I wanted.) And so, I passed through different books almost all about personal enrichment, although motivated me about having great ideas not give me a practical guide to take something to suit my needs, i.e. making real money having little time.

As I said, I do not remember exactly when I got the idea that it could be done business online, the fact is that around 2000 I found a book by Jason Kelly called "The Neatest Little Guide to Making Money Online". I think this book is still sold on Amazon and elsewhere I guess but not if it has been revised and there are new editions. The copy that I own now seems quite outdated, considering the dizzying speed with which advances the internet. Already were written several key issues of internet marketing as having a web site to promote own products and services, making affiliate marketing, etc.., on the other hand there were issues that now seem rather primitive as "Connect to internet" or "Buying the right computer. "

Yet Jason Kelly's book introduced me to a world very interesting and exciting as it appeared at that time the internet marketing. There were links everywhere and going here and there I began to receive more information (perhaps more than I wanted and could handle) and since then offering the "best way to get rich online." I have to confess that several times I was tempted to follow these deals but there was always something "mysterious" or "hidden" with them until one does not pay to receive all information. So I think that spent a few weeks until I started buying some of these systems.

Once downloaded the "new and wonderful" system, I devoured it hoping to capture every detail to start as soon as possible to make money online, but I would say that 100% of cases, something stopped me. After have spent on a program that apparently taught me step by step to build a business, I discovered that I had to pay for the hosting of a website or design of it, or by software to search for keywords, or software for writing articles, etc.

So frustratingly I spent several years in which I did not find really that "secret" to develop an online business, let alone make me rich but at least I consistently generate any profits. To be honest, at the end just wanted to find evidence that I could at least make a sale on the Internet.

The first test I had about the internet really works to sell gaves me a kind of mexican Ebay: MercadoLibre. Through this platform I finally have evidence that an Internet advertisement lead to a sale to someone elsewhere in the world, but who deposited real money you can get in your hands once the sale process is concluded.
But who has used eBay knows you have only limited options the site gives you and also (most importantly), the other aspects are like those of a conventional business to keep an inventory, packaging and, courier and parcel services, etc.

It was not until I found the One Week Marketing method of Jennifer Ledbetter (PotPieGirl) where I realized I could have a really "step by step" system to allow me develop a campaign promoting a product as an affiliate, making use of just free online resources.

When I started to follow that plan surprisingly within 1 month and had done my first three sales on the Internet, with an affiliate product and most importantly allowed me to know Wealthy Affiliate University, which was really a pleasant surprise to realize that there was a real online school that taught a formal approach on every aspect of internet marketing, many of which I had been knowing or deducing in a more or less incomplete way for years at various sites.

However, when I thought I had achieved my goal finally lowered my guard. It was a period of intense work as a researcher in science, now in charge of a research laboratory so I stopped doing hard work on 8 campaigns that I already had running based on the PotPieGirl's One Week Marketing program. I stopped creating new sites, I stopped doing research into new niches, I stopped writing posts and articles, so I thought created campaigns would mature alone over time and that never happened. In fact what did occur is that in two or three of these campaigns traffic increased in various sites that I had created, from the higher ranks in search engines, but since the contents were not updated, people coming to those sites simply do not follow my affiliate product offer.

Also, my first step on Wealthy Affiliate University was brief because, since I was not committed to constantly spend time each day, it also seemed at the time that if I didn't use it was not worth to continue paying for the service and canceled it.

It took several months for me to resume again both the One Week Marketing plan as to re-enroll me in Wealthy Affiliate University since had been shown the importance of both in the internet marketing like any other activity to keep up updated, to stay active and most importantly, a new term I learned that make a radical change of attitude in my view of the business, I learned the importance of CONSISTENCY.

This explanation has been long but it is just to highlight two very important facts that should be taken into account for those who want to engage in internet marketing:

1) It is a real business with real good conditions and with potentially much larger than a conventional physical business.

2) It is not a business that generates profits immediately, it requires a learning curve and requires a lot of work. The difference in this business against a conventional one is that once established can be kept running on auto-pilot, that profits can grow logarithmically depending on the position of business on the internet, and also the time you have to keep spending may be much lower compared which is dedicated to a professional activity or conventional business.

Hi Tommy,
It is great to meet you with WA! What an interesting story! I have also done many of those things with little success! Best wishes for success in all you do!
I have the same question as Bernard, Did you finish your medical training? And did you practice medicine?

Thanks for following me. I found your story very captivating.

Did you ever graduate from Medical School?

Interesting that you mentioned Amway. I just wrote an article on my website about the ugly truth about network marketing It seems both you and I have been through less than successful experiences. I cited Amway as being the pioneering company that brought Network Marketing into the mainstream. Much credit goes ti them for making this industry legitimate.

One of my goals is to leverage the principles of Affiliate Marketing taught at WA towards creating a successful online network marketing business.

I wish you much success in your Internet business.

Cheers!

Like your profile and the points your are making.

The notion of getting something for nothing and the sales pitches that promise the same thing, just build up hope in the wrong things!

Totally agree that this business or anything worthwhile will take a considerable amount of work.

Nice to meet you and best wishes to your success!

Thanks for the follow. I hope you have success in the medical field. I have strong feelings about big pharma contributing to the medical crisis we now have in the USA. i fee they are more interested in treating than curing. And the FDA seems to approve foods which cause problems.

As a doctor you have a great opportunity to grow rich and also help your fellowman live a long healthy life. And the internet is a great way to do so. I follow Dr. Al Sears. Check out his web site. He is a great salesman.

WA is a great organization.

Hi Sue, I've been struggling with time for so long that I've become accustomed to stealing hours of sleep. But above all what motivates me to continue is to be able to achieve that passive income that eventually allows me to continue dedicating myself to research without worrying if I get grants or not.

Love your profile. Yes WA is a great place.

I wish you would affiliate with me selling CBD. It is now legal in the USA, Canada the UK and other parts of the world.

Take a look at trulygoodlife.com and consider becoming an affiliate with CBDbio. It is free to join, but like WA it has some premium programs. I joined premium and have made a good affiliate income.

Congratulations sir, yours is the longest profile to ever be read by this lazy fellow. Haha. Jokes aside, am glad that you are in the health industry just like myself. Thank you so much for the synopsis of your book "Online Adventures of Tommy Potter"- My title for your story. Don't wory, I charge $10,000 only for every title formed. Sorry, I had said jokes aside. Thanks a lot for the precious pearls of advice....the need for patience....hard work....consistency-I like this a lot. Am a about a half year here, although I wasted some 2 months in learning forex trading where I lost a lot of money. I came back to WA, no sale yet, but am here to stay till I see success. I greatly appreciate your responseresponse to my question earlier today. And before I forget, thank you for adding me to your following. Am also your follower.

Tommy, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Tommy.

I managed to read your complete profile and I admire your persistence and perseverance over these many years...that takes a lot!, I know having run my own businesses how the start of anything can be daunting and a little frightening....and the returns take quite a while, but once you have done it and made a success the only better way to go is a business model, like this one, that will give you better returns on time and money invested, Beautifully written profile Tommy!

Hi Tommy,

Thank you so much for following me. I am honored to be in your network.

Like you, I got into Amway for a bit. My sponsor was not the sharpest knife in the drawer and I realised I was not going to get anywhere at all with that venture.

I wish you the best of everything.

Tommy, nice to hear from you. Like you I was drawn to WA because they weren't claiming miraculous results immediately. As bit of a cynic, I know things aren't (usually) handed out on a silver platter. So happy journey here and use the stamina you would have achieved during you trip through medicine to go places. Keep in touch.

Tommy, thank you for following me! I remember this one job I had, where one of the new owners was going to show me this great idea, to make money! Got all excited and then found out it was Amway and it was pretty much a pyramid scheme, to me. Although they had some good products, it wasn't about selling the product, but about finding others to go out and others, who will go out and find others, etc. I think they were busted for a Pyramid scheme, but not sure. Quite a few years later I had someone contact me about buying stuff online, but you had to buy in quantities. Why would I buy a case of toilet paper etc, when I don't have anywhere to store it. It was called Kwickstar or something like that, but was actually Amway. I had another person approach me too about it, much later. I am single and although it would be nice to buy online, I am not going to buy in bulk. Maybe if you had a large family, but I avoided it. Now I found WA, where I will be able to make money blogging. I love to write. Best of luck to you!

Hi John, thanks for your comment. Definitely many people in here have went through a lot of schemes to earn money although some of them have made us lose money instead. What I think is great of WA is that you get tools, no products to develop your own project no matter what kind of business you try to build up.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me.

I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to running an online business.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help yet ask nothing in return.

When I came to WA in February 2015, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.

You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Here is a sample of what you will find; Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Tommy: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things.

First, I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) to you that I can. Why! Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it.

Second, I try to help my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So an open invitation: If you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.

Please remember that Kyle, Carson, me and you are not WA. WA is the thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills. Welcome! DAN
