So you are thinking of plunging into Internet marketing? You are convinced that it is easy and is sure it is going to rain money. You have learned something from the books and you know the first steps.

Now is the time to - Look before you leap.

Don't believe the Internet gurus. Their success story may be true but the lessons will not necessarily apply to all. People are different. Different in education, mindset, skillset, budget, and so on.

Ask them how many years it took to reach the present stage.

When they tell you there is no need to work hard, they are actually saying 'buy my expensive book and you don't have to work hard. Cash will flow into your coffers'.

It is their style and they have to maintain their status after all. But you think for yourself. If there is any obvious good thing take it and leave the chaff.

When you are new to Internet marketing you really have to learn a lot on the practical side. They will say it is easy to set up a website within seconds, easy to write article in 10 minitues and so on. Just take it with a pinch of salt. If they told the truth you will become useless to them. At least that's what they think.

To tell you the truth, in the initial years, you have to sweat it out. There will be teething problems and you may even be tempted to give up. You will be suffering information overload and things will come to a standstill. That is point you turn either right or left.

Always think and take your own decisions. In my next blog, I shall expand it further.
