When you first get started in internet marketing, you are bombarded with sales pitches for everything you need to get started right. So you buy everything you are told to buy, and then realize you have no idea how to use any of it.
So now you buy the information that is supposed to tell you how to put it all together, and what will make all your tools work.
But in reality, you need to do the very opposite. You must start with a plan, and build from there.
Read all you can online about the best way to set up you internet business, then create a step by step plan to implement your ideas.
When you begin to purchase resources, make sure that every resource you buy fits into one of the elements of the plan you devised. If it does not fit in, do not buy it. No matter how wonderful is the product, no matter what it promises to do, if it does not fit into your plan, do not buy it.
You must develop a step by step plan to create long term success online. This plan should start with the basics, like a niche, a web site, and a traffic source. Next, it should incorporate techniques like list building and web site conversion tactics. Finally, your internet marketing plan should incorporate backend products, cross niche products, and up sells.
