From the Desk of Stefan Berg…
Today I would like to Introduce myself, tell my Story.
How I came to work with Internet marketing
Im A Swedish guy who moved from the Bitter cold of Sweden
to the Tropical Island Borneo – Malaysia with my Wife Catarina in the Spring 2009.
I’ve always been a Curious, adventurus guy and I love to Travel. I spent 3
month in Asia already back in 1991 and I have returned many times on vacation
since then until we finally moved here.
When I started out on the Internet in 2006 I was a Real Newbie!
I had no computer skills -There was no computer lessons in school, yeah I
know I was born back in the stone age…
I have worked as a Electrician for almost 22 Years. Lacking Health forced me
to Stop working. From a Well paid occupation and good Financial Standard
I suddenly had zero!
Of course that made me Extremly Frustrated and I turned to Internet to find
something I could do to earn my living. I Googled “Earning Money online”
– One of the first things that came up was Traffic Exchanges.
I had no Idea what it was but it said I could Earn Money. I started
Surfing for credits – joined a lot of Programs and of course I maid zero bucks…
My Journey to Become an Internet Marketer has been a lot of “Trial – and Error”
To make a short story of it I want to give you a Couple of Advice
what you should Avoid to do:
* ONLY Surfing for Credits in Traffic Exchanges – It´s Time Consuming and has Little To do with Marketing. Surf some but if you are going to use Traffic Exchanges – buy credits
That way you can spend your time on more important things then just traffic. Last thing, only use them for 2 things, brand yourself and build YOUR list. nothing else.
* Join ALL New Hot Programs – Try them out a few weeks then say it´s not working
Join a new program, doing the same over and over again. (Program Jumpers)
* Spend All your day in chatrooms and Different Forums
I have tried All of the Above with little or no success… You should
concentrate on things that can take you towards your goal – being a Marketer.
What concerned me over the Years is that it can be hard to Grasp the
Real meaning of being a Marketer. To Succeed You need to Understand
what It takes to be a Marketer – choose the Right Tools – and Use them Right.
I want to give you a Over All Picture. My goal is to make Things
User friendly. Even If you are totally new in Internet Business
you should be able to follow these simple steps.
To many people try to do to many things them self and get stuck in the tech Jungle
Instead of concentrate on what to sell, how to sell it. Try to outsource things
trade things or rent cheap professionals. I know it fun to learn many things,
like design and some programming. Ok no harm to learn some basisc, but don’t
let the tech stuff Stop you. You’ll grow much faster when you do the more
important things and let other ppl do what they are good at.
I Teach basic stuff, how to set up your Blog, your Autoresponder –
and so on… When that is set You’ll grow much faster.
Throughout the years I learnt some Really Important
Lessons I want to Share with you
Here Is 7 Valuable Tips how to Take your Business to the Next level
- Brand You – Always Use your Name and Picture! Let people see who You are!
Build up a Reputation of being a Serious Internet marketer by providing things
people Need. Give them A Solution to their problems. Write Articles – Do Videos
– Create your own Blog.
- Build Your OWN list I can´t stress this enough. Either you own a program
– you are an affiliate – your blogging or something else – you need your own list.
- Use Social Media Use Facebook – Twitter – Networking Forums and comment
on others blogs. One word of warning though – don´t Spam people!
Don´t send people your affiliate link or such and just ask them to join your
program. That will only put people off! Social Media is A Powerful Tool – when
you use it Right

Experience – Your Tips and Tricks.

person behind the computer screen
