“Follow that Guru” By Lavonda Thigpen

“I’m new to Internet Marketing, and I want to learn how I can make money by working from my home. Can you tell me how”?

This isrepparttar question I hear everyday. It’s even all overrepparttar 148962 forums. People wanting to start a home business, but don’t know how. I know how they feel because I was there, just a few short months ago.

I even posted on forums askingrepparttar 148963 same question. I got tips from many different people on ways to start my business, but everyone was different. I had never been so confused.

There are hundreds of e-books you can get that will teach you allrepparttar 148964 “so called secrets, techniques and tactics” that you need to learn, but you will more than likely go broke, before you even get your first website launched. And talk about “brain overload”, well you will be so confused after reading all that stuff, that you’ll be in worse shape than before you started.

That’s how allrepparttar 148965 “experts” become rich. They focus on allrepparttar 148966 new people “newbie’s, as everyone call us” that are where you are now, not knowing where to start, what to do, and especially how to do it.

They feed you sales letters that say things like “Make $50 Thousand your first week”, or “Turn $14 into $500 over and over as many times as you like”. They make it sound so easy, but let me tell you, as I found out for myself, it’s not as easy as it seems”.

The best way to learn is to find a person that has actually made it inrepparttar 148967 Marketing field, and “Follow that Guru”.

In my case, before I finally decided on a “Guru” to follow, I went to some ofrepparttar 148968 best forums on Internet Marketing and just started readingrepparttar 148969 post. I was looking for 1 thing in those posts…A name!! A name that everyone was familiar with, that everyone talked about, and who hadrepparttar 148970 respect of allrepparttar 148971 people in that forum. For me, that name was Corey Rudl. For several weeks, each and everyday, I would go torepparttar 148972 forums and ask questions about this man. I had no idea who he was, if he was for real or just wanted my money, or if he was truly interested in helping me succeed in my new online business.

The whole time I was researching him, I never found anyone that had anything bad to say about him. As a matter of fact, he is known as “one ofrepparttar 148973 best Internet Marketing experts inrepparttar 148974 world”. At his website IMC (Internet Marketing Center) he specializes in showing anyone how to userepparttar 148975 Internet to immediately increase their income using simple, yet highly effective tips, tricks, and techniques.
