ARE MARKETING FORUMS A WASTE OF TIME?
Recently I had had a lot of people ask me about the Internet marketing communities springing up all over the Web.
You know the ones I'm talking about... The discussion forums and chat rooms hosted by so-called Internet marketing gurus who promise members "unlimited access" to them and their team of experts - but the only people you meet in their forums are beginner marketers who are still struggling to make their first dollar online!
In order to help you determine which are worth joining – and which are a colossal waste of time – here are three questions you need to ask before getting involved in any of these communities
Are your questions guaranteed to be answered by an experienced Internet marketing professional?
Let's face it... Other Internet marketers can be a useful source of useful information –provided they have actual experience running successful online businesses!
You don't want to get involved in a community where the only suggestions you get are from people who are simply parroting things they've read online, without ever having tried the strategies for themselves.
So when someone offers you a piece of advice, ask them for REAL PROOF they know it actually works. If they can't provide it, it's time to move on.
Are your questions guaranteed to be answered within a specific time frame?
I've seen it happen again and again – people join an online marketing community desperate for advice from a seasoned marketing professional. So they post their most pressing questions and wait impatiently for someone to answer them.
And they wait... And wait... And wait... Meanwhile, they're losing out on potential sales
because they're not taking any decisive action with their websites!
Will the "experts" give you a detailed analysis of your website and offer concrete suggestions for improvement?
If you could ask just ONE question of a seasoned marketing professional, here's what it should be:
"Will you review my website?" Top
If they say no, then my advice to you is: find another community to join.
Without a doubt, you'll get more value out of a detailed website review than any other information a seasoned professional can offer.
A reputable online expert will give your site a full "diagnostic" and let you know exactly what changes you need to make to your website and salescopy to improve your conversions.
By asking these three questions, you can make sure you join a community populated with real Internet marketing professionals who will deliver real advice and help you get REAL results!
Personally, I've done some research and I think the only online community worth joining is Derek Gehl's exclusive "Internet Entrepreneur Club."
It delivers an immense amount of value that you simply will not find anywhere else.
In addition to round-the-clock access to Derek and his team of REAL Internet marketing experts, you also get:
