I once wrote an article which I submitted to Ezine Articles, it was called ‘How To Make Money Online – Don’t Be A Plate Spinner’ 

It was in 2007 and I was convinced that this Internet Marketing was easy peasy.

Well, here I am today 4 years later and the plates are still spinning.

One difference from then to now is that I am really good at spinning plates and have only smashed a few over the years.

My Internet Marketing life was always a bit of a hobby to me. I probably convinced myself that if I didn’t get anywhere it didn’t matter because it was only a hobby.

I have spent an obscene amount of money on some rather obscene products.

I am sure I am not the only one who has done this and if you analyse  how it has happened you only have yourself to blame.

Have you seriously followed to the letter each and every ebook or course that you bought?

I doubt it. Or am I hoping it is not just me who fell for every great sales page?

Recently I have had some success with my blogs and mainly with promoting things from Amazon.

Amazon has to be one of the best places for the affiliate marketer. When your customer gets to Amazon through your link they are bombarded with loads of relevant stuff.

Even when they decide to purchase they are offered what other people also bought. That is a great strategy and often results in extra sales.

So where am I in the great scheme of things.

I have spent the last 3 years building blogs and static sites without a great deal of success. I have learnt that if you want to build a business you have to provide good unique content and that will be ok with human visitors and robotic ones.

I also learnt that whilst I am sure that you can make a good honest income online, there is no such thing as the totally automated cash cow.

You must stay focused and follow a well trodden path.

There are so many twists and turns that can be made on the Internet, even on a daily basis that I now find myself putting my faith in a mentor.

It is not the first time I used a mentor as many years ago I recognised the need to learn from someone who knew what they were doing.

It transpired that I answered more questions from this mentor than he answered from me.

I was even proof reading his material for him before publication.

Suffice to say it has taken a long time for me to trust anyone online.

I have now got myself another mentor and he is called John Thornhill and I am putting my faith in him showing me the correct way to go forward.

I know I am not far away and just need pulling through the mire.

So, thats pretty much me. How about you?
