Every blog needs a starting point – the first post. The post where you explain why you’re starting the blog and what you have planned for it. And well, here’s mine.
I’ve just started out on a new course. An Internet Marketing course. It’s called Partnership to Success and it’s run by a guy called John Thornhill. I’d never heard of John until a couple of weeks ago, but I watched the video on his sales page and as Mr Burns from The Simpsons would say “I liked the cut of his jib”. And so I signed up.
I’ve dabbled with Internet Marketing over the years with a fairly consistent level of mediocrity interspersed with very brief flirtations with success. Time, life and a million other reasons/excuses have put pay to numerous previous attempts at Internet Marketing. Often I suspect when I was a lot closer to success than I had realised.
These reasons are what attracted me to John’s course. It’s a full years worth of training – week by week, step by step. I know every Monday I will have a new set of tasks to complete that week. And more importantly I wont be left on my own through the process. And this all comes with a guarantee of success if I complete the course. Now that’s quite a guarantee!
I appreciate that the guarantee comes with some caveats. I need to complete the course for one, and I need to put the required work in. My current source of income is my Landscape Gardening business that I started from scratch and have run for 9 years. So I know I’m capable of starting something and sticking with it. In fact, my current business and my gradual falling out of love with it (it’s pretty much rained every day for the last 2 months here in the UK) is going to be a great motivation to make this course work.
So this blog will chart my continued journey through the world of Internet Marketing. I hope the posts will prove useful to other Marketers. Especially those starting out on their own road through the often daunting world of Internet Marketing.
