Best Internet Marketing Forums – Here’s my Top 5

Internet is a Big place and you can find information about virtually anything in a matter of seconds… but it can be overwhelming, especially when you don’t know where to look. When it comes to internet marketing, online business and making money online there is a lot of misinformation out there – some people would even call it straight up Scams (and in some cases they are right).

Fortunately for all of us there are a few places where not only can we find good quality information for free (or almost for free) but also connect with like-minded individuals! Just think about it – how many internet marketers or people that are making money online are living in your neighborhood? Maybe there are even a few but the chances of you two running into each other by accident are slim to none.

Best Internet Marketing Forums have came a long way, since the first ones started to emerge and what initially was a meeting point for a few enthusiasts, now is a full-blown business – and I think that this is absolutely a good thing.

Now there are more possibilities than ever for an average person not only to create an extra income stream online for them and their families but even to take it much further and create an online business which allow them to make much more they ever would in a 9-to-5 job, while working from anywhere they want in the world. Internet gives us truly limitless possibilities!

But if you are only starting out and are not familiar with these internet marketing communities, here’s my Top 5 Best Internet Marketing Forums:

1) Warrior Forum – an absolute number 1! It was created in the 90’s and since then grew an awful lot. Of course on the forum people can exchange their opinions, chat about latest events etc but it is also one of the biggest internet marketing marketplaces! Warrior Forum has changed lives of hundreds of people over the years and if you’re still not a member, you’re missing out big time! It has recently been bought by Freelancer.com and they’ve made some interesting changes – of course for the better :)

2) Digital Point – very similar to Warrior Forum, it is simply a good alternative. There are people that prefer one or the other but you can learn a TON from both!

3) Wicked Fire – another great forum focused on affiliate marketing and SEO – a true goldmine of information!

4) V7N – Any online entrepreneur should visit this forum! Lots of great info on web development, online business, internet marketing and an active marketplace as well!

5) Affiliorama – this forum focuses mainly on affiliate marketing but since it is an awesome way to make money online, the forum is very relevant. Oh and Click Bank recommends it as one of their best resource…

I purposely didn’t mention and Black Hat forums on the Best Internet Marketing Forums list – some people might argue that they contain some good info as well but I simply come from a different place when it comes to my internet business… Integrity first and money second – I guess for some people it is the other way around.

Ok, so that’s it – my Top 5 Best Internet Marketing Forums! Join one, a couple or all of them and become a member of the community.

Looking forward to speaking with you on one of them :)

All the best,

5 things I wish I knew before I got into Internet Marketing

5 things I wish I knew before I got into Internet Marketing

5 things I wish I knew before I got into Internet Marketing

Today I have a very special post for you… it is a reflection on my internet marketing journey. I want to give you an insight of my mindset before and after I started Making Money Online. It is actually quite funny because, probably like anyone wanting to get into internet marketing, making money online or online business, I started with a similar approach of wanting to make millions overnight. The reality of it all is a bit different and I guess you have two kinds of people that will take different actions after they realize that fact – the ones that stop after a short while of having little to no success and the persistent ones that continue their journey, despite the failures and money lost…

Before I made a decision to dedicate myself to internet marketing and really make things work I had a similar mind frame – I wanted to Make Money Fast and without much work. It is very interesting how I’ve (and many other marketers) changed in the process…

Here are the 5 things I wish I knew before I got into Internet Marketing, without any particular order:

–          No-one gets rich quick! In the music industry they have a saying that any overnight success takes at least 7 years of work… When it comes to internet marketing, it is definitely less than that but it really depends on how dedicated each individual is. More dedicated people that are willing to put in the hours to learn and master different methods and actually implement the strategies that they’ve learnt about are more likely to succeed faster. People that are sort of ‘hanging around’ will probably never make more than a few dollars online and they will be the ones to say that ‘this stuff doesn’t work’!

–          You will work more rather than less! Many people get into online business with the ’30 minute work day’ in mind. The reality is that to master anything, it will take much more than 30 minutes a day, in fact it is more like several hours a day, every day! Once you have gained the skills and you’ll have the right systems in place it is possible to automate your business and run it on autopilot but… many internet marketers continue working 12h days – but the big difference is that this is their choice, they don’t Have To do it! Frank Kern once said something in the tone of ‘Why would you stop working if it’s so fun’ and I couldn’t agree more.

–          Working at home isn’t easy! I loved the idea of waking up at whatever time I want, working in my pajamas and taking brakes without asking anyone for permission and yes, it is a much more relaxing work environment than a busy office, for example. But the truth is that you have to be quite self-motivated and organized to pull it off! There are no schedules, no supervisor to make sure that you’re actually working and not browsing YouTube or Facebook and there’s also your family that will interrupt you frequently! Without creating a system of working at home, I’d be probably 75% less effective during my work days – especially with my 6 months old daughter which needs constant attention!

–          Relationships are everything! Before I saw any kind of success online, I foolishly thought that I could succeed on my own. In the ‘real world’ you need contacts, connections, friends and business partners in order to succeed and that’s nothing new, right? Well, the online business world it is actually exactly the same! I had some success on my own but it was only after I started to connect with other internet marketers, helping out each other and learn together in the process, I was able to take my online business to the next level. And the best part of it is that I treat my ‘online friends’ as I’d treat any real life friend and they do the same!

–          You can’t do it all yourself! When I first started I wanted to control everything in my online business and do it all – create websites, content, graphics, video, audio etc. Firstly I did it because I really like learning new skills and secondly to save money, especially in the beginning. Soon I found out that even after spending 10 hours trying to create a simple banner in Photoshop for example, the results weren’t even close to what I had in mind… That’s why I learnt to outsource things I’m not an expert in and focus on the things I like doing and am good at! Even if I’d be very good in all of these things, there are just so many hours in the day and delegating is one of the most important skills in this business if you want to achieve massive success!

So that’s it, these are the five things I wish I knew before I got into internet marketing… I really hope that this article will help you in some way – I wish someone would write something like this and send it to me when I was first starting out!

Please share it with your friends if you found it interesting or valuable :)

As always, if you have any questions, concerns or maybe you’d just like to say ‘Hi’, send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
