Internet Marketing Online Training
by Joe Fuller
Internet marketing online training comes in various shapes and sizes, from a tip a day to full blown, usually expensive, coaching.
The point is: is any of it worth it, that is, has it any value for you?
The odds are it does one way or another. You have to keep learning as you can’t know everything, besides which things keep changing. This is one of the hidden problems people have trying to start, and then maintain, their online business as a sustainable project. And most often people are working by themselves, not able to spend a lot, if anything, on outsourcing. So you want to know that any training you pay for is going to be well worth it.
You can’t tell completely ahead of time but you can move the odds in your favor and choose and use internet marketing online training strategically in your business. In fact, have it as part of your business strategy. That strategy should include ways in which you are constantly improving the business to be more efficient and effective in achieving your strategic aims.
Ways to decide whether to buy into internet marketing online training.
1 Don’t just buy from anybody. Could you list your competitors in your market now? If not, it’s crucial to find out who they are. You need to know how to do better than them on price, ease of doing things, speed of doing them, or re-conceptualizing the business you’re in or the types of products you sell. The more original you can be in your niche, preferably unique in some way, the better.
Your competitors might sell training which would give you insight into how they operate, and you can see what you might be able to use too. In any case, your research would include following their blogs and websites, their ezines, forum comments and so on. From those you can decide whether their training will be of use to you.
2 In addition find out who are the perceived top trainers in your market. Go through their materials in the same way. They’ll probably offer free examples and excerpts that give you an even clearer picture of what they do and how they carry out their training.
3 Even if you find several candidates who provide good internet marketing online training, they might still not be any use to you. First, they might be in formats you don’t like learning from. Maybe they’re all videos and you’re not comfortable with that. Second, none of their topics might be useful for your business. This is unlikely but possible if they’re limited in what they cover. Third, you might see one training that looks interesting but its usefulness to you is patchy and uneven. For instance, the first three weeks is on stuff you already know and can do – it’ll just lead to frustration, then you’re likely not to pick it up on the fourth week. This happens: people pay for high ticket access and never even turn up. Fifth, does it fit what you need to know for your business now? If not, there are better ways to use your time, and you can always come back to it later.
4 Finally, internet marketing online training can merely waste your time. You should never be doing something which is not leading to the fulfillment of your strategy, reaching your aims through it. This includes thinking time which can be classed as taking positive action. However, the right training at the right time, and acted upon, moves your business forward faster than struggling to sort through problems yourself. You need to choose its content and timing carefully.
