Thanks for all the emails and encouragement from my post yesterday!
Several of you expressed that you wanted to join me on this 0 to 10k journey. I'm ecstatic about that, and so let's just cut to the chase and get started!
I'm writing these posts realizing that many of you have not had a go at making very much money online, so I'm going to give you the best resources and education I can for someone just starting out.
The best advise I can give for 2008 is "GET A BLOG!"
Why do I say that? Well, blogs are hot right now. For a few reasons:
1.) Blogs give you credibility — It's like your home online, this is where you can advertise all the products you come out with, share your knowledge, and demonstrate to people that you know what you're doing.
2.) Blogs are loved by the online community –if you look around, more and more people are starting blogs now, they are linking to their friends' blogs, they're linking to good posts by other bloggers (if you think about it the better stuff you write the more likely people will link to you and get you traffic), and basically people don't feel like they're being "sold to" when they're on a blog. Unless of course, you make your blog uber cheesy salesy.
3.) Blogs are loved by search engines — they more posts you write, the better chances you get to rank for certain keywords. This can be discussed in further detail but we'll save it.
4.) Blogs are the EASIEST thing to create (as far as websites go) –You can go to blogger.com, wordpress.com, or set up your own wordpress hosted blog on your own domain, it's a 5-10 minute process (unless you're not techy and you're trying to set it up on your own domain). There's no excuse nowadays not to have a blog if you're serious about having your own information marketing business, so many tools to make it easy for you to have your own business home to communicate with your customers.
So there you have it. Please leave a comment on what you thought of this! Oh, and the top commenter for the month gets a free lifetime membership to Marketer Training (marketertraining.com)! It doesn't get any better than that, so leave your two cents (I should write a post about how beneficial it is to comment on other blogs too)…
