Internet Marketing – Do You Need Internet Marketing Coaching to Succeed?

Maybe that is not really the right question. Or maybe we need to define success (or succeeding) first. Maybe we need to decide what internet marketing coaching is for – and what it might mean to you.

You see, if you are diligent, and you find the right information, or you buy the right information, you can succeed online. Oh! – one more thing – you have to be willing to do the work.

You see, internet marketing is work. There are no two ways about it – it is work, and you have to be willing to do the work.

Don't let anyone con you into thinking that you can sit on the beach and your internet marketing company works for you – and you don't have to do anything. Sure, if you set things up right, you can work from anywhere in the world. There's that word work again.

And if you set things up right, you can take some time off – and if you pay somebody to do your customer service for you while you are gone, and to manage your internet marketing company, then maybe you can get away with not logging in while you are gone.

But internet marketing to succeed is work – make no mistake about it.

But I guess I have digressed.

Do you need internet marketing coaching to succeed?

Do this:

1) Define success for you. Is it $1000 a month, $10,000 a month, more? Does it even have a monetary value?

2) How fast can you get there with your current knowledge?

I was amazed one time when I mailed my subscriber list and asked them a few questions.

One was: how much money did you make last month?

Another was: how much money do you want to make last month?

I averaged them out (I had around 50 or so results, if I remember correctly).

The average person made about $100 last month. The average person wanted to make $5000 next month.

Disconnect? Yeah!

You have to be realistic. Look, if you didn't know what to do last month to make $5000, unless you learn something new this month, you aren't going to make $5000 – in fact, it is likely you won't make more than you made last month.

Maybe you do need a coach!
