Recently, I was invited and joined the Linkedin Group - O.M.G. – Our Masterminds Group I discovered a long time ago that I can learn a lot from listening to others and this group offers a wonderful diversity of knowledge, experience and a passion to help others.
So I posted a question to my OMG LinkedIn group and asked them this ….
What words of motivation or inspiration would you give for an ‘up-and-coming’ online marketer?
“I think the key to getting started as an online marketer is the fact that “you will have to change part of your life”. Things like less television, or less socializing, just to name a couple. You definitely have to treat it as a business and not a hobby, so you will require consistent effort with results based action while stepping out of your “comfort zone”.
I go back to this saying:
“Amateurs built the Ark – Professionals built the Titanic” therefore you can achieve anything you set your mind to do as long as you remain committed to your dreams and your goals.”
“I think that persistence is the key. You have to realize that you have to be in it for the long haul. It will not happen over night. It will take some time. I feel that you need to get connected to the right people such as OMG who can share their experiences and are willing to help each other achieve success. You cannot do it alone.”
“Not only persistence but patience, good work ethics and good communication skills are key. It takes time to learn how to market online and that’s where a lot of people fail. Marketing online is a whole new ball game to offline marketing.
My words of motivation would have to be – “Patience is a virtue” strive to be all you can be and it will come to you.”
“While fear is part of all of our lives, it seems to prevail when you are starting an online business. You can choose to let fear paralyze you or move through it. You can also choose to be stuck in the analysis paralysis or take real action every day. It is not always easy, and some days your action step may be small, but as long as you continue to keep moving forward you will reach your goals.”
