Do You Want To Be A Newbie Forever?

Written By: Glenn Cutforth

So, do you want to be a newbie forever? Or do you want to make some money online?

So much of the Internet is about Information. Every single day people search for quality information on every topic under the sun.

If you want to be a provider of information and perhaps make a living at it, do you really need to buy one more eBook that claims it will reveal a SECRET about Internet Marketing? Let me be perfectly clear — there are no secrets — there is only good-old-fashioned business principles. The same principles apply whether you are working online or offline. But if you’re new to making a living online, there are specific ways or “secrets” to you, that must be implemented to be successful.

If you are a “newbie” and you think a “list” is something you carry with you to the grocery store, then it’s time to get educated. You must learn and implement “the right system” or you will fail.

The internet is no different than the offline world. You create & sell a product or service with quality. You provide your customers with information they want and need — not what you think will sell. You then market to that specific audience for your product. You build a “relationship” with your customers. You service them like crazy!

However, unlike the offline world, the potential for major sales and profits can happen quickly, if you set everything up the right way. You must sell quality products. You must automate. You must have a list. You must centralize the control of your “system.” You must … if you don’t you will fail! Did you know that something like 95% of the newbies who try to make a living online fail?

Why do they fail? There are millions of reasons. Some are looking to “get rich quick” and don’t really want to work very hard. Or perhaps it’s “information overload” that does them in … Warning — if you are an “information junkie” you are in the most danger of failing. Why? Because you will spend all your time “collecting” rather than “doing” … buying every eBook ever written about how to do this and how to do that and every self-proclaimed “guru” is going to sell you everything they can. Not a pretty picture.

Here’s something critical you really need to know. Are you ready? There are typically four ways you can make money on the internet, discounting all the MLM and “scam” business opportunities out there.

1. Sell other peoples products as an affiliate. 2. Create “content” websites that bring you income through Google Ad Words. 3. Buy/Create and sell your own information products, software etc. 4. Provide a service i.e. design cover graphics, design websites, programming etc.

That’s the major one’s. Secret for success … pick one of these and FOCUS on it until you succeed. If you don’t focus you will not succeed.

As a writer and graphic/book designer, making a living developing Information products is, for me, as natural as breathing. However, this way of making a living is NOT for everyone. Creating “quality” products is hard work and it takes time to learn.

Unfortunately, the Internet is filled with a lot of garbage info products … i.e. a 6 page eBook that lists the wonders of using vinegar to clean things that someone is actually expecting you to pay $10 of your hard earned cash to read.

If you want to learn how to develop and sell your own eBooks, you have a choice. You can slap together that 6 page eBook and try to sell it for $10 — but beware, if you decide to take that route you will fail!

Or you can do it the right way.

There is a right way, and there is a wrong way to develop information products. The world does not need another newbie trying to make a fast buck by putting together or buying resell rights to crappy eBooks that no one wants.

Info Product Development is not for the lazy or quick buck artist. Producing quality takes time and effort. However, the rewards are great and the potential to live the “Internet Lifestyle” with no bosses, no traffic jams and no daily grind is tremendous.

You can succeed. Just don’t plan for it to happen over night. If that is what you are looking for, then go buy a lottery ticket. On the other hand, if you want to do it right and succeed — then get educated, get focused, find what you really want to do and where your talents lie — and then, just do it!
