I have to admit, I was just as guilty. I thought I could do everything myself. After years of struggle online, I realized it was time to engage an Internet Marketing coach.
Over the last few years I have engaged with many entrepreneurs on the Internet, and many are still reluctant to invest money in themselves. There are a lot of people out there on the Internet, hoping and praying that they will succeed, rather than seeking the “right” advice and creating a plan to Win.
Imagine not ever going to school, and thinking to yourself that “‘I’ll just pick it all up as I go along”. We were made to go to school, so we went, whether we liked it or not. That’s how we learned to read and write.
When people come into the Internet Marketing/Network Marketing space. They don’t have to do a thing. Some people are lured onto the Internet by the hope of “quick’ riches. I think by now, most of us know that “shiny objects” will not make anyone rich, people still hope and pray though… just like we hope we’ll win the lottery.

The short answer is. Invest in education and then go do it. Education without action is a complete waste of time. It’s no good being “smart” if you are also “broke.. that’s not smart, that’s just stupid.
Instead of spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars on products you haven’t bought yet. Why not invest in yourself, and engage a marketing coach who can show you how to move ahead in your online business. Think about it, you could still be going around and around in circles, a year or two from now.
That doesn’t make sense..
An online coach will hold you accountable. You are far more likely to succeed if you are working with an online coach. Here are 5 MASSIVE reasons why you should engage one.
5 Reasons You’re More Likely Succeed With An Internet Marketing Coach
Reason 1. Experience. Look for an experienced coach who has been around the block a few times, and has ended up doing the very thing that you want to do. You wouldn’t be wanting to consult a Doctor who hasn’t practiced yet, and has only just learned medicine by reading books from the Library.
Choose someone with experience and someone you get along with.
Reason 2. Attitude. Look for a coach that has a pleasing, but firm attitude. Someone who is very positive and who will encourage and lift you up when you need it. However, don’t choose a coach that is a “soft touch”, you need someone who is willing to speak their mind and not scared to “tell it like it is”.
Reason 3. Willing To Share. A good internet marketing coach is willing to share his/her experiences with you., None of us are infallible, we all make mistakes. A good coach will share their mistakes with you too, and not just talk about their successes.
Reason 4. Accessibility. You must have reasonable access to your online marketing coach. Depending on the program you have agreed on, whether it is coaching by email, phone etc, you must be granted reasonable access to your internet marketing coach. I must stress here, a good client/coach relationship should NOT involve lots of “hand holding”. You are learning to be an independent business person, a good coach will help you to think for yourself, at all times.
Reason 5. Expectations. A good coach will keep you accountable. They will draw up a personalized plan of action with the steps required you will need to take to make the plan work. It is no longer about reading things on the Internet, going to webinars and not doing anything.
You are about to embark on a journey of a lifetime..
Your life changes by the decisions you make, and the actions you take. A good coach will remake the puzzle that you have been experiencing, and turn it into a workable plan for you to succeed.
I know that the day I got myself a coach, that was the day that I stopped fumbling around on the Internet. It was the day that I made a decision I wasn’t going to work for anyone else again and it was the best decision I ever made.
