How I Got Started With Internet Marketing Cont…

Hello fellow entreprenuer,

Before I started my journey with marketing on the internet, most biz-opps I’d ever marketed and promoted were done with offline marketing methods.

I have done direct mail promotions and mlm type opportunities and with the exception of the direct mail, all my lead prospecting was done face to face and I really was not that comfortable with it, but I did it anyway. And although I hated selling I managed to retail my products, go fig…

So when I came across that ad in USA today, make $100,000 per year with no personal selling, I was elated.

After calling the 800# and listening to the recorded message, I left my name and phone number and sure enough within 24 hours someone called me with a website to go to for more information on how to make $100,000 per year without any personal selling.

What I found at that site blew me away. Remember I hated selling, like 95% of the people do, so what I discovered on that site was amazing, at least it was to me

They were selling a very expensive vacation package, #1300 and up. I believe the company has since went out of business, however I really was not that interested in the product as much as I was interested in the “marketing system” this team had in place.

In 2005/2006, I had never seen anything like it.

Here I was cold calling people, prospecting using the 3 foot rule, talk to any and everybody within 3 feet of me about my business opportunity. So this set up was real eye opener for me.

They had voice mail broadcasting that called your leads. They had video on their website, auto responder systems, 800 number system.This was in 2005, I know now days everybody is on the cutting edge. Not so in 2005/06.

I got excited. I was ignorance on fire. 

Thus began my interest into internet marketing, and what a ride it has been.

In my next post I’ll share my ups and downs along this journey in and on being on the internet AND using it to market business opportunities.

 Thanks for stopping by, and be blessed.

How I got started With Internet Marketing.

Hello fellow entreprenuer,

I first became interested in internet marketing in late 2005 after I came across an ad in USA Today while scanning the business opportunites section.

Although I hated selling, the ad I responded to was in the sales section of the paper. Also, the ad was very well written and claimed you could make $100,000 per year from home, without doing any selling. It got my attention.

There also was an 1-800# phone number in the ad that you could call to hear a 24 hour recorded message to get more information. I thought, great I can call and not have to talk with nor worry about anybody trying to sucker me into buying anything.

So, I called the 800# and listened to the recorded message which claimed that people were making hundreds of thousands of dollars working full and part time from home, without having to personally sell anything to anybody.  Needless to say, I was very intrigued.

Also in the message, people were giving their testimony of how they were making lot’s of money using a marketing system and marketing tools, which did all the selling and promoting of their business for them.  Now I was even more intrigued and was ready to buy with credit card in hand.

At the end of the message I left my name and phone number as the recording instructed me, and was told someone would call me back within 24 hours with a website where I could go to get more details on this wonderful opportunity.

I’ll continue the story in my next post.

Till next time be blessed friend.
