Choosing An Online Marketing Course

November 10th, 2010

So you are planning to take up an online marketing course to further your prospects of earning money online, right? Right place, right time. But it’s confusing to choose one over the other…

There are many online marketing courses on offer and most are being marketed so well that you really don’t know how to evaluate and what to look for. That is the problem. This article will give you five silver bullets to shoot at every online marketing course you come across. Using the information you gather you can take a proper decision about which one to go with.

So here goes…

First, if you find a course that does not allow you to talk with the instructors or the creators of the course content, give it a ‘minus one’ point. After all, systems and methods are proven and they get you results… but unless they are driven by a human interface you will not extract their true value as a learner. Is it good to be spending your money without getting full value for it?

Next, check for the method of delivery of the online marketing course. Broadly there will be two options. One, the course will be spread over 8 or 12 weeks and you will have a mix of interactive and self-study sessions during which you practice and get results. The other option will give you access to a lot of intellectual property which you study at your own pace and ask questions as and when they arise. Now if you have a lot of self-discipline, go for option two. Else, option one is for you… and it will still take discipline to be on the calls every week and finish your homework!

Third, be sure to ask for course content in advance. Once the topics and their progression is known to you, you also know two other things. One, that the course is well structured and will not evolve with you as a guinea pig. Second that everything you need to know on the subject is covered… and all that remains is taking action along with your coach. Of course one serious issue with pre-developed course content is that it could be packaged since long and therefore not up-to-date with the changing practices online. But you must ask about their updation processes… because the fundamentals of an online marketing course don’t change… only the tips, tricks and techniques do!

Fourth, look up the course topics online and list out reference resources. Frame questions based on the information you find. Ask if the gaps in that information will be filled by the course. Don’t expect to learn everything from freely shared resources. That will not make you money. Those resources are only to start molding your mind.

And finally, check the cost. It is not that the most expensive online marketing course has the best content. It is not that the cheapest has the worst. What you are looking for is the depth of subject matter and any price you pay inside $100 per week is a good price. For subscription sites, $50 a month is the limit I’d recommend.

Making money on the Internet

March 24th, 2010

“Who else wants to be making money on the Internet”, I asked. All hands at the cafeteria went up. Silly question. Ok let’s try again. “If you want a home based business opportunity would you be willing to invest $500?”. Now about one-third of the hands remained. Those were the people I was talking to. Not the freebie-seekers. Not the lottery mentality.

This article is for them too. Not much of an article really… just an intro. Into the world of wealth. Click on this link to Sandeep Nath’s Primary Online Business to watch my video explaining the work and take action. I welcome you on board.

Will the network marketing opportunity fulfil any dream of mine?

March 20th, 2010

Resoundingly yes!

Why? How? In simplistic terms, any dream of yours would be fulfilled by one or more of 5 things: time, money, health, relationships, prayer. A balanced combination of all 5 is available in every network marketing opportunity. Now I feel no need to explain how all these 5 are embedded in network marketing opportunities. If that remains a question in your mind you haven’t understood the basics of the industry and probably need another dose of CDs or meetings to get your associations right.

So let’s look at the more complex part… and that is about developing the connection. The connection between what’s on offer and what you want. Let me start with an example.

I once met a gentleman named Doug Wead who was born the son of a church minister. He said he didn’t have any ‘silly dream’ of a house, a car or even to travel the world. In spite of that, his sponsor insisted that he dig deep and put a finger on his dream. What would he really want in life? And Doug, being an avid follower of history, concluded, “I want to have a place in history”. And he went though the motions of professional networking. Days passed. Months passed. And in a few years, Doug found himself interviewing President Nixon, dining with Ronald Reagan, accompanying Gorbachev on his US tour. He found himself a place in the Whitehouse as special advisor to 2 US Presidents. He was traveling all over the world where history was being written. Berlin. Kazakhstan, Tiananmen. He wrote biographies of great leaders. He loved to write but had only 2 books to his credit before the network marketing days. Since then he has written 26 and counting. Because he got the much needed time. He got the resources.

He developed the contacts. And of course, the money. Doug’s charitable organization funds the Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa) in Kolkata. His resources support scores of AIDS affected villages in Africa. His trucks were the first to reach Tsunami victims in Indonesia. Doug is in history. Careful what you dream!

Another gentlemen I have met was the former Vice President of Citibank in Indonesia. Robert Ankasa; a man who dreamed of being a top gun in his industry and a role model. Even though he started as an ordinary middle class child who cleaned toilets in Australia to finance his post-graduate management studies, he became a guy who could focus on the ends and not be stuck on the means. And a visionary who served as inspiration for many middle class Indonesians and people the world over.

Ankasa has – through his network marketing opportunity – personally mentored about 50 families to diamond and above. His asset base is worth several hundred million dollars. And it has all developed over the last decade, of which three years he spent building a network in parallel to a high pressure bank job. And then he was free. For life. Forever. To serve as an instrument of substantial socio-economic change in Indonesia and – by example – in the rest of the world.

Ankasa tells us stories of discipline that the Indonesians are famous for. As also are the Chinese. Jim Dornan makes a special mention of him in his path-breaking book co-authored with the legendary John Maxwell, ‘Becoming a person of influence’. He says in a lighter vein, “it is not falling into a lake that will drown you… it is staying there that will”. So as we plunge into the waters we know not, it is best to keep moving. Else we become another network marketing failure statistic. And lose the opportunity to really live our dreams.

Coming back to your context, now what will keep you away from pursuing a network marketing opportunity to (seemingly tangentially) realize your dreams? 3 things: One, not having (or believing in) a mentor. Two, not having internal conviction that this is a viable strategy despite its obviousness. Or three, impatience.

While the first can be remedied by locating a mentor, the second is more tricky. It calls for a deliberate movement outside the conventional thought process and you know what… doing so brings a person ‘out-of-the-box forever! In all walks of life!! So it is definitely worth the effort and chances are this is easier than you think if you stay amongst a network marketing peer group and audaciously close to your mentor. As for the third barrier, it’s a weakness habit and successful people will do best after they break it. Like all good things network marketing is not a quick-fix solution to issues. But it is generally seen that over a five year span the achievements of a networker would far surpass those of a non-networker in all walks of life. How is that? Simply due to the networker’s focus on good habits and positive company.

My personal vision for instance is to create an army of b-quadrant high consciousness individuals who usher in a new era of abundance thinking. Now what could this possibly have to do with branding, which has been my space since 20 years? Nothing evidently… except the way thoughts and events have unfolded over time… and today I can visualize a strongly branded institution that is churning out b-quadrant entrepreneurs using a branded consciousness building processes driven by Sandeep Nath’s personal branding. The latter is evolving through my reasonable and growing presence online, testimony to which is your being on this page 🙂

I am always open to partner with people on this purpose-laden dream of mine. To check out one network marketing opportunity you can pick up and execute online look up my primary online business here. Careful what you dream!

How I wonder what you are!

January 9th, 2010

Today morning I got a call from a celebrity-sort-of-guy in NJ who had been reading my blog and following my movements on facebook. He said "Sandeep I believe you are an Internet pro and I want to know how this works."

"How what works?" I said. "This Internet thing", he said. "You mean how to use the Internet to make money?" I asked. "Yes, more or less", he replied.

Now I had a flashbulb moment. I had thought anyone online, especially my friends on facebook, would be making money all right. It was just whether they would be making as much as I do… which is just a function of what one does online. But to be spending so much time online and not making anything… well, isn’t that a pitiful waste of time?

I thank my caller for this post. For one, he established to me that anyone, no matter how successful, is always open to new ideas… which they would like to pursue with people they trust. Second, that there might be many of my friends still itching to get started with their first buck.

Five months ago I had done a video on learning the basics of Internet marketing . You can click the link for it. The idea was to get the right training for online business and then roll it out into anything you’d like to do.

I gave my caller an example. Doing online business is like doing business in a mall. How much you spend and how much you earn depends on what you do with a space you have. If you operate a McDonald’s franchise in that space you’ll be told exactly what to do and exactly how to earn. If you open a jewelry store instead, well, it’s a different ball game in the same space.

Likewise, e-commerce. Nothing worthwhile is free. But business training is available (ahem, that’s me ;-)). What to do and how to succeed. In fact, that’s what my blog is all about anyway.

So my caller finally asked, "how much do you think I can earn?" "Good question" I said, "how many miles do you think you can drive on the American roads?" He laughed as he understood. There’s no limit… you just got to learn how to drive… from the right person !

How to use Internet Marketing to build any business

August 25th, 2009

No matter what business in you’re in, you can put the Internet to use for you and use it to help you build your business and rake in more sales.

The statistics on how many people are online now are mind-blowing. As of November of last year, there are over One Billion people online. This gives all of us an incredible opportunity to grow our businesses – to global proportions, if that’s what we want.

However, the Internet is not without pitfalls and obstacles. In fact, if you make the wrong move, you can find yourself in very real danger of losing everything you’ve worked so hard to build.

Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to using the Internet to market your business:

Create a professional Web presence . These days with all the readily available Website templates, blogs and highly affordable Website designers who can be hired to design a custom Website, there just isn’t any excuse for amateurish or poorly built Websites these days. Even when you add the cost of Internet access, hosting , buying the right domain name and the cost of having a Website built, starting an online business is affordable to almost anyone – and so even if you run your business from your home, it doesn’t have to look that way!

Make sure that you do research on customers . Find a hungry market that is already buying in your chosen niche. Choose a product that your target market wants to buy – the best way to do this is to choose a product or service that meets a need, takes away a pain or solves a problem. Competition is good – but make sure you choose something where you’ve got a good chance of getting close to the top.

Plan how to generate leads . Even if your business is completely online, a strong list is your roadmap that helps guide you from zero to millionaire. List aren’t just for people who are looking at direct sales or affiliate marketing. Anything that involves networking and reaching out on the Internet rests on a list. Be flexible to invest as needed on this – but do not buy third party lists. They are stale. Generate your own.

Use autoresponder software to build a relationship on auto-pilot. By writing your messages in pre-built autoresponders, you can stay in touch with your entire list over email. Add to this a phone call and other contact and you build fantastic trusting relationships. Some great ideas on how to write emails for better response here.

Keep your goal to be among the best marketers online . Do you know where you want to end up? What are you going into business for? To make a little extra money? To build a business that you can later sell and live on the proceeds? Whatever your reason for going into business for yourself, decide what your ultimate goal is. That way you’ll be able to direct your actions towards achieving it. Choose the company of people who can guide you to bigger goals. Grow!

Take action. Once you know your long-term plan for your business, it’s easier to chunk it down and create shorter, medium and long term goals that will help you to achieve them. Write down your plan for marketing on the Internet and make sure that you take at least one or two actions towards those goals every single day, Search for resources on this site and write to me if you want something you don’t find.

Test, test, test . Whatever you’re doing – whether it’s banner advertising, using a newsletter, trying a Google AdWords campaign – or any other form of Internet marketing or advertising – keep testing your results. (But here’s a hint – when it comes to your copy, don’t waste your time on unimportant elements – only test the ones that are going to give you the biggest return on your investment.)

So have fun being online and marketing your business, for you are at the right place at the right time!

How to do online business?

April 17th, 2009

The Internet isn’t as complicated as we think it to be. If you get a hang of a few easy business concepts, online business is simple and fun!

For starters, let’s be sure that it is worth spending your time learning somethings. Because the Internet is not just another communication option anymore. It was originally just that… first only for the defense (70’s – arpanet)… then for education (80’s – ernet)… then for businesses (90’s – b2b)… then for customer-oriented business (b2c)… now for anyone (c2c – not just on the computer but on any mobile gizmo) and soon it will be an embedded chip on our shoulder and everyone’s aura will be connected 🙂 !

So this medium is like a sixth element and knowing how to use it – and better still, profit from it – is like harnessing water or fire! Sounds crazy, I know… but hey, look around you. There are 3 types of people:

  • those who make things happen
  • those who watch things happen
  • those who wonder what happened

Using this site, you will be in the top class. So is it worth prioritizing some time for this? To my knowledge, no one has put the use of time as well as Steven Covey in the Urgent-Important matrix.

Now it is recommended to spend 70%+ of your life in Quadrant II and less than 10% in each of the other quadrants if you really want to get anywhere other than the mortuary end. These are the 5 things that are Important-but-not-Urgent in Q2.

  • Preparation
  • Planning >> critical
  • Prevention
  • Relationship building
  • Personal development

Shall we examine them one by one, relative to this site and your new-found ‘business life’?

Preparation: What is required of an online business person?

The first thing we need is the right ‘mentality’. Does business mean some kind of ‘lottery’ to you… or does it stand for a process of building up something from scratch, methodically, and with commitment. If it means the latter, please read on… else, you might want to be on the DoOnlineLottery kind of site.

Having said that, I do understand, you might be here to make money faster than off-line… and you probably will. My intent was only to brush off the get-rich-quickers. That you are around, let’s just understand that we’d need to start planning for our business life and prioritize some budget to pick some product/s and plug into some system/s that will get our business/es into the cyber-world.

And that was important… Any F*R*E*E kind of stuff is an exercise is self-consolation and a waste of time. A free business is not getting money from anywhere, so what’s it going to pay you? Obvious but often overlooked. I wonder why people love to ‘feel busy’ evaluating freebies 🙂 (Quad IV stuff).

Here’s an article that would perhaps be good to read before you move on

Planning: What types of online businesses are possible?

Essentially there are 5 slots into which any online business available for individuals (c2c) would fall:

1. Direct Sales

This is easy to relate to. The internet has cut too many ‘middle-men’ out of the equation. Any company has a product or service to sell. They have researched it, produced and packaged it and now need you to market it. Since you like commissions, you master the ways of selling it online and presto, get paid for it! Examples are many but some meaningful opps are ebooks , google courses , wealth education , home business solutions etc. Clickbank is also a good place to find products to promote and ebay is an age-old market place.

If you are selling your own products or services, that too would fall under this category.

2. Affiliate

Somewhat similar to direct sales, affiliate-ships help you to a web page that could be customized with your name and some details. They typically work for:

It is easy to see that you would need some or many of these as you go about your online business professionally, so bookmark this page.

3. Multi-level

The genius of distribution modeling, multi-level networks pay off pretty well for people who do not quit. The biggest problem with MLM is, it is easy to get in and so it is easy to get out. But if you work a networking business professionally – like you might if you had your life-savings invested in it – nothing can pay better. Here’s a must-read article to grasp what you might be missing .

There are many off-line network marketing opportunities, for which online means are great to communicate, establish relationship and keep contact. And there are many pure online MLM business too like chattotext , gdi , evp , me2everyone etc.

Anywhere you hear the word ‘x-by-x matrix’, you know it’s an MLM. If you are open to understand this, nothing does it better than the videos here . Be patient there are lots of them… but in a few minutes a day, they will set your concepts good for sure (and for free because this is the creator’s tribute to the industry).

4. Systemic

What a system is needs to be understood and the article here will help . All I’ll say is, systems do more than just lead marketing mlm , and a business opportunity seeker in mlm can lead effectively as an internet marketer / online business owner. Many systemic online businesses are found in finance and day trading also.

5. Data-based

The opportunities here are more c2b than c2c, so customers can do data entry type work for companies to get paid. Surveys, transcriptions, translations, mturk, writing opportunities, form-filling works are the type of ventures that fall into this category of online business. Less business and more work actually, but that’s what keeps a large number of people in their comfort zone 🙂

Prevention: … is better than cure … says it all

Instead of creating Quadrant I crises, preventing problems can give you more time for other Q2 stuff. Online, this would mean better education for instance. Use of systems . Belief in your coach . All of which serve to ‘sharpen the axe’ and prevent losses.

This last reference is obviously to the story of the woodcutter who spent a full day cutting one tree. The wise man told him to sharpen his axe… "by doing so you will cut four trees in the same time." But our man did not do that. Why? He thought he had no time to sharpen his axe!

Are you thinking that way? Are you mostly fire-fighting for survival and therefore minimizing your productivity? Maybe you want to review 🙂

Relationship building

This is where the rubber meets the road. MK Gandhi said, "A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so."

You build relationships online and relationships build your business. Period. Of course you can advertise… all the talk about craigslist classifieds, banners, pay-per-click (PPC) and stuff. But all that only leads to the start of the relationship. And that is the business owner’s main focus.

On Web2.0 (the interactive c2c web), there are many forums and chat places… there are also huge hang-outs like facebook and myspace. What do you do here? Build relationships! Imagine these as social parties. You get into the room, make some friends and invite them to your home (your blog) or to office (your business site). Simple. Just as you would behave off-line, behave online. Again, I wonder why many people don’t. Perhaps it is the Q1 addiction taking over. And that brings me to the last point.

Personal development

Nobody trained most of us for business. Especially not for big business, which the internet is perfectly capable of. So I urge you to start this journey with Robert Kiyosaki. His book, Cashflow Quadrant, is the most profound treatise on how to think for life – with or without a business. And if you are going to be with it, even more critical to know 🙂

Building both, vision and relationships, requires reading. ‘Skill with people’ by Les Giblin; ‘Questions are the answers’ by Alan Pease; ‘The magic of thinking big’ by David Schwartz; ‘Secrets of the millionaire mind’ by Harv Eker; ‘You can heal your life’ by Louise Hay; ‘Personality plus’ by Florence Littauer; ‘eMyth’ by Michael Gerber; ‘Piano on the beach’ by Jim Dornan; ‘Made in America’ by Sam Walton; at least start with these.

Books will stretch your mind to the level of the author. Why compress it with inane negative newspaper input when you can blossom with books and make your business bloom alongside effortlessly?

So practically, where do you start? Click here and get on to a fantastic journey! All the best!
