4 Phases of Internet Marketing

Hi there. Barbara Brinkmeyer here. I'd like to share with network marketers and affiliate marketers alike the 4 developmental stages of operating an Internet Marketing business from home, regardless of the product or service you're moving.

Today, I'm sharing this information with you because I want you to see the power of who you are, separate from what others have told you. You're not who you think you are -- as in 'miniscule...way out there as a speck in space...and everything you're doing here has little consequence'. Not everyone of you will think this way but whenever you're watching the Discovery Channel..., and you view a space program, it's very easy to believe we have a small impact on our lives. So, we're going to move away from that misconception.

I'd like to give you an overview so you may freely reason for yourself that no matter what you learned in childhood, it's possible to have what you want, defining your business as you see fit. I'm speaking from experience here because once you fully brand your name, people will want YOU rather than your service.

You have to think 'outside of the box' if you're going to become your all in business. By that...I mean, you have to trust yourself as an individual, applying all you've learned in your life to get what you want most (it could be financial independence, it could involve freeing yourself up from a job you're not
entirely thrilled about..., or it could mean something more like taking better care of your family).

Whatever your biggest reasons are, the basic developmental stages in Internet Marketing are as follows:

Phase 1 -- You realize there's a potential for solid business but you don't know what (or who) to believe necessarily, nor do you realize that you can earn a real living on line.

85% of the people who attempt to generate revenue online will quit at this point.

Phase 2 -- You make a little bit of money but you don't yet possess a full Internet Marketing skill set AND/OR you're not sure how to fully bring the profitable business into full fruition. And..., that's okay. You don't have to hold all of the answers in the palm of your hand today.

This is the phase where, if you don't like to be told by another person or a system that,"You'll be a failure if you don't completely buy into what I'm saying you need", well then..., appearances can be deceiving. There's always more than one way to solve a problem! Right?

Translation -- you know companies are making huge money online AND NOW you intend to be a part of that abundance. You know it's possible so you're using sweat equity to build a solid foundation.

You've earned some profits but you still lack other essentials needed to put your highest vision of ther Internet Marketing reality into full force and effect. Common stumbling blocks involve --

- cash flow
- a steady stream of inquiries
- something valuable you can talk about
- a proven system you can easily share with others.

In this phase, you know companies (and individuals) are making a lot of money online, they're not necessarily working their warmest markets but you have yet to find a METHOD that works for YOU. I'm not talking about implementing a method or model that positions anyone other than yourself as the expert. I'm talking about finding a system that will help you brand your name. This is important.

At this phase, you have begun to begin think outside of the box and you're highly motivated. You're now tapping into your creativity and inspiration.

Phase 3)Inspiration settles in firther to deliver your ideas more credibly, putting you into a very unique place. You're developing your own branded image (and maybe your own products by now), you have additional tools in your toolbox, you have a fairly decent skillset but you still lack the fullest know-how (this stage could involve systems and more advanced methods). You know that if you keep the ball rolling, the momentum will develop and you'll have something real to offer others.

Phase 4) The ball is rolling. You have a system in place, your skill set is a winning one and you can guide other powerplayers while you're in full profit.

Less than 5% will achieve this phase in development.

Don't give up for ANY reason.

Put yourself in the top 1%.
