Walk Before You Run or It Could Lead to Failure

Many newbies to Internet marketing try to run before they learn how to walk the walk, don’t they?  I include myself in this beginner’s flaw because over a year ago I started doing exactly that.

The excitement of this new venture had me shifting from idea to idea in search of that one thing that would make me enough money to quit my day job.  Do you know how hard it is to have huge success on just one big idea? It’s darn near impossible.  As a matter of fact, you’d probably have a better chance of winning the lottery before landing a BIG ONE on the first attempt.


After several months of struggling to find the one brilliant idea that would rock my world but consistently failing, I had to take a hard look at why it wasn’t working.  I consider myself an intelligent person so why couldn’t I get it after reading hundreds of “how-to” articles written by successful marketers?  I’ll tell you why.  It’s because I didn’t follow the old adage of walk before you run.


My advice to anyone trying to break into Internet Marketing is to:


1)      Read as much as you can to gather ideas because studying the success of others is important.

2)      Filter those ideas to find something that will fit your style but keep the remaining ideas for the future.

3)      Develop your own product and work with that from start to finish

4)      When your initial idea or product becomes successful then expand your efforts with a new idea.

5)      Keep repeating to yourself “there are no shortcuts to success”
