I was going for internet marketing motherf@#cker LOL… but it might have been too much in the title, prodigy is good enough too, that’s what you will be at the end of this article – an internet marketing prodigy.
The Internet is packed… packed so bad it’s becoming tougher by the day for newcomers to stand out.
It’s been like that for a while… it was crazy hard when I started online too, which is why I know this and that about the struggle… about your struggle, and I’m not gonna advise you to read a list of 100+ SEO tools, or a guide to build links, cause these type of articles are mostly for fun.
Who the fuck needs 100 SEO tools?
If you need backlinks, you learn how to make money, make it and then hire an SEO, unless you are into SEO yourself… here’s what to read in case you are:
SEO toos, tracking software, or other shit like that won’t help make money though, becoming popular will.
I’ve spent probably more time in front of the computer than the guy who founded the wide web LOL, because I had nothing when I started online, I had to try every free way to get traffic, had no other choice…
…my point is I can too tell you how to submit to bookmarking sites, how to try and send emails to other bloggers to try and get your name out there, how to build links by reaching out, how to buy this software and that social sharing plugin, but all that is not going to fix your situation.
To make money online you have to become famous, that’s it… you need nothing else.
No one cares how awesome you are (maybe just me and a few other cool people like me, but we are not a lot), how passionate you are, how smart you are unless you are famous.
In fact, when you are famous, you don’t even have to be smart or whatever, people just like you… I know this is sad, but this is the world we live in.
No one cared who I was a few years ago when I started online, even though I had made millions offline, now when I have this blog, they all wanna be friends, they all wanna be like me.
Am I bragging here?
Maybe, I don’t care, I want to show you the importance of being popular, when you become such you can buy those SEO tools if you want LOL… if you don’t have anything more useful to invest in.
Damn, this intro got quite long, that’s because this is a very serious article, if you get it, you will become huge fast.
Anyway, let’s start with the ways to become huge
1 The “this is not true but it is perfect” moto
You are probably thinking this is bad… very bad, and I’ll leave that for you to decide… but I want you to name one marketer who doesn’t lie, well, I’m more of an entrepreneur.
Ok, I’ll rephrase it for you: learn how to tell stories, no I can’t rephrase it, you have to learn how to lie.
If you don’t like it, you have to switch to something else, cause internet marketing is going to be a bitch for you.
You know where I first heard this moto?
Tony Robbins’s campaign.
Before he became a “life coach” (nothing more than a babbler to me), a bunch of people (will leave names out of this) had been pushing his campaign as hard as possible to make him who he is now.
There was that video in which one of the pushers says about Robbin’s marketing:
“well, there’s nothing true about that, but it’s perfect”
…and now Tony is loved by the whole world, I’m telling you, it’s a weird world we live in, you decide whether this is good or bad.
I’ll leave it there.
2 Become a consultant
One sure way to become authority is charging for consultation.
It’s even better than writing a book, although that helps a lot too.
Just paste a banner on your blog linking to a page with your consulting services… don’t be cheap, the more you charge, the more people would think you know your stuff… and of course if you do, that’s even better, but you don’t have to, people would normally pass hiring you if you are not famous anyway… and you are doing it to become famous, so just put up the page and come thank me when you start getting those messages and compliments and everything (in other words – become huge).
I browse like a hundred sites a day, do you think I will remember all of them by the end of the day? of course not, I’ll get back to those that send me a message or post something on FB that I like.
3 Forget about free
You can use free to get leads, but stop fucking trying to make it for free… it won’t happen, it just won’t.
I understand you might be on a tight budget, I understand you might have already become skeptical because of all the useless shit out there, but you have to understand you have to invest money to make money…
…and I’m not saying it to make you buy something… I’m not running this blog to become a billionaire (I have other businesses that will help me get there), I’m running it cause I’ve gone through all the shit you can think of (it wasn’t fun at all) and want you to live a happy life.
Most people who do not succeed simply can’t understand success is not free…. it takes money, balls and lots of pushing.
I get asked a few times a day the following:
“Vladi, you are a breath of fresh air in the weird marketing world (had to do a little self promotion LOL), I’ve done this and that and don’t know what to do next, can you tell me what I need to make this and that?”
I always answer the same:
“Find money, borrow it, or work for it, or anything you can think of, but find money… then pick what you like to do, push as hard as you can and always trust yourself, you are the only person who knows what’s best for you. The rest is simple, head to the blog and read how to get traffic and sales and everything.”
That’s it, simple… but not easy.
That’s how you become a badass and buy expensive cars and houses.
Let me know what you think about this extraordinary article and fucking kill it, you rock.
Changing the world through blogging the truth.
