internet marketing gurusThese days there are internet marketing gurus everywhere. The problem is, how can you be sure your “guru” truly knows what they’re talking about. In this age of the internet fake reviews, fake earnings screenshots, and other misleading tactics while illegal are still used by fakes. One of the reasons I have this online marketing blog is to help YOU in your decisions on who to follow, who’s legit, and ways to take the gurus right out of the equation and become your own boss. You can even end up being called one of the marketing gurus if you work hard and take action.

Internet Marketing Gurus Exposed

One of the main problems I’ve seen with internet gurus is they don’t make their money doing the things that they sell you. So what I’m saying is they will sell you a course on how to make money online. However, this course is not what they are currently doing to make money. The internet marketing gurus are making their money selling you the product. Not by doing what the product instructs. Now this is not all the internet marketing gurus are doing but I’ve noticed that’s what a lot of them are. Not only is it deceptive but it’s not right or fair to those who can’t see through the BS.

This is one of the main reasons I endorse very few, if any at a certain point in time, programs that claim they are blueprints to exactly how the seller is making money online. Especially affiliate marketing gurus. They make their money using their reputation to sell others products. Now, I don’t think there is anything wrong with affiliate marketing. I do it. However, I feel to make a living off of any type of affiliate marketing takes a more established persona in this internet marketing game. That or a large budget.

Are There Any Internet Marketing Gurus I Can Trust?

I truly think there are many reputable “gurus” online. So many I care not to mention them all. No matter what level I get to in my online business I’ll never call myself a “guru.” Maybe that’s because I’ll always be learning. If I’m learning then I have to be learning from someone. So I will never worry myself with being one of the top internet marketing gurus in my lifetime. I will however, always mentor and coach those who ask and are willing to take action. People who will actually put their words into action and make things happen.

One thing I will also always do is only refer people to programs, systems, and products that I actually use. One of the best being these free weekly marketing webinars hosted only by 6 and 7 figure earners in the industry. If you truly want to get your business jump started in the right direction and learn how to generate 20+ leads per day, to have an endless supply of buyers coming to you then join me at the Business Builder Academy. If you truly are serious about making a change in your life SHOW ME by taking the first step and joining me at the academy. I’ll see you on the other side.

online marketing strategiesOnline marketing strategies have definitely evolved since I first started my internet marketing career. That does not mean there aren’t some tactics that have stood the test of time. However, what internet strategy you choose will definitely depend on your ultimate goal and the business you’re in. One thing I will not do is generalize and recommend a few as the best online marketing strategies. Neither will I recommend brand new internet marketing strategies that I have not tried and tested. The internet is organic and yes it is true if you figure out something or get in on a hot trend right away it can be VERY fruitful. Sometimes these trends last and sometimes they’re gone so quick you are truly still lost after it’s gone. Even if you experienced success for a short period of time.

What are some of the most used online marketing strategies at the writing of this?

Some of the most popular strategies for marketing online right now are:

  • SEO (search engine optimization)
  • Email marketing
  • Web design, development, and promotion
  • Niche marketing with affiliate, reseller, and associate programs
  • Press releases
  • Blogging
  • Contests and giveaways via your website
  • Social media marketing
  • PPC (pay per click)

Now this is by no means all online marketing strategies available right now but some that I feel are the most common and most effective. Master any one of these and I believe you will have a very successful online career. Master multiple of them and you can literally write your own paychecks because of the amount of income you will be able to generate with the knowledge you have.

As long as you take ACTION. Always remember this favorite quote I’ve heard from many successful internet marketers, “MONEY LOVES SPEED!” Learn something, implement it!

One of the main things I focus on in my business online is helping others. I truly believe is I can help others succeed then I myself will succeed. There’s something about being a leader and watching your students go from novice, to intermediate, to masters of this internet marketing game. I truly feel it’s a game too. Since the internet is a system you can learn to work the system by using specific online marketing strategies well and make a great living doing it too. To get in on my coaching check out my Business Builder Academy.
