Webmiep from Holland is going globalby Paula van Dun Retired
I have been active with online marketing in Holland for some years. In October 2010 I decided to cross the border and start online business in on a global level.
This was to put it mildly, confusing at the least. The way of advertising is a lot different than in the Netherlands.
If I would put some advertising lines on a site in Holland, people would laugh at me and don't take me serious. The kind of lines I mean are ones "make money in your sleep, make 10K a month doing nothing, retire in 3 weeks".
I also started to contribute comments and articles myself. A lot of the articles there and on many other social networks where no more than exact copies provided by the programs.
But there were some persons who posted comments and articles that were different and did really stand out. These persons wrote unique content with valuable information and content without pushing to join for this and that.
There were also similar minded people who connected with me who found me through my comments and postings. They gave me good advice on several issues. The result was that I joined several programs they either owned or had joined too.
Yesterday I found this network too because one of my internet friends on another network recommended it. I love APSense so far and will recommend to my own downline and contacts too and upgrade as soon as funds allow me to.
The main thing I have learned the past 3 months that you need to be very skeptical and picky about joining something especially if you want to build yourself a good name. There is a lot of malpractice and scam on the net.
Besides that, promoting programs that are bound to fail is a waste of time and money.
The other thing is that you need friends you can trust and provide good information. You can learn from them a lot. This is the beginning in profiling yourself as a leader too. Become a leader people and people will follow you. Remember, people follow people, not programs.
It takes time and effort to build valuable connections and relationships. And like in a marriage you need to nurture them. But in the end you will be rewarded, getting sign ups and referrals will get more easy and of course your earnings get better too.
Update 21/st July 2012
Meanwhile I have made many great friends and valuable connections. Did I make money? Yes I made some but no truck loads yet. The money I earned I invested in my business. I bought quit a few I bought lifetime upgrades. For some of them I broke even and even earned from, some others still cost me money. I became co-owner of another network and was able to start 2 new businesses, my traffic exchange surf-bar-traffic and recently a graphic design service Webmiep Graphics.
Update August 17th 2012
After investing 2 years I parted from a business partner and found new ones and things really start moving forward now. Working on exciting new projects now. Sorry, can't tell yet :)
Update April 2013
I got involved as a partner in The Marketers Co-op owned by Bruce Bates who I consider a great friend and mentor. I learned a lot. In the marketers co-op I found more great partners and friends.
I have been busy. I launched my own Mug themed downline builder service and a similar T-shirt themed downline builder for Dutch programs. I am mainly promoting my own sites in safelists and TEs whereby I promote good opportunities en services from my own sites and blogs and through article writing on social media sites.
Building my own sites and downline will alow me to spend more time on graphic designs and content writing.
