Don’t Ask Your Friends For Blogging Advice – Here’s Why

Please don’t listen to your friends for blogging advice and here’s why. Have you ever had your friends telling you that you should maybe give up, or that you probably won’t make it as a blogger because it’s really hard to make money online, or any other advice that is downright negative?

Welcome to the club. It’s difficult isn’t it to know what to do. You don’t want to offend your friends by asking them to shut up, but you don’t want to listen to them either because they haven’t a clue what they’re talking about when it comes to what you do.

I was in exactly that situation. My family and friends didn’t really have the first idea what a blog was or what you could potentially achieve with one. And yet they felt they were adequately qualified to give me advice on mine.

The sad part is though that I had started to listen to them and started to think that they might be right. But in my heart I knew that they were wrong.

Look for someone to advise you who has already achieved what you want to achieve

It was because of this that I looked around for someone who actually knew what they were talking about to help me. Relying on my friends and family for advice had been the wrong thing to do. After all, what did they know? (with the greatest of respect).

I needed someone who had already achieved what I was trying to achieve to show me how to do it. I wanted to be shown techniques and methods that were proven to work. I wanted to be given proper advice and guidance from experts.

For months I hunted around for this person who was going to show me everything. I began enthusiastically, then my enthusiasm turned to desperation and finally to despair. After six months of searching I hadn’t found anyone who could help me.

Not because there weren’t people out there, there were, hundreds of them, but no one that I could afford to work with. I was, after all a lowly new business owner with few if any customers.

The top marketing experts wanted thousands of dollars an hour (yes you read that right, an hour) to mentor me. Then I started to look for cheaper options and became even more despondent. The ones I could afford were either not that much better than I was, or they only did one specific part of the business building process, and I wanted someone who could show me everything.

A guy on a pedalo changed my life forever

Then, one day, completely out of the blue, I was clicking about online when I saw a guy on a pedalo talking about online marketing and how it had changed his life. I listened, transfixed as he told me how to set up my business so that it could be automated and run mostly on auto-pilot.

I knew this guy was the answer to my prayers. I knew that he would be able to answer my questions and help me with my marketing. I Googled him and instantly became depressed.

Turns out he is one of the top online marketers in the world. He was not going to be able to help me because there was no way I could afford to pay him what I was sure he would be asking. But I couldn’t get him out of my head.

Everything this guy told me (while floating around on his pedalo) made complete sense to me. I knew I had to set my business up in the same way that he had described. The only draw back was that I didn’t really know how to go about it.

He had talked about email lists, subscribers and auto-responders, none of which I had heard of before so I decided to google a bit and see what came up.

Then this happened…

Cookies are wonderful things (that’s the computer cookies not the sweet kind – although they are great too). Because I had watched his video Google now knew I must be interested in him so a few days later he popped up again (fully clothed this time). He talked a bit more about how to build this amazing business model that runs itself.

This time I watched it all the way to the end, and boy was I glad I did. He was offering a 7 day video series that talked you through exactly how to market your business using this business model. And it was FREE

Obviously I clicked on it straight away and within 5 minutes I had received my first email. He introduced himself and told me a bit more about his business and history. He then got straight into the first of the 7 training modules.

By the end of the first video I was blown away. I couldn’t wait for the next day so that I could watch the next installment. I was totally hooked.

By the end of the week I was a different person

By the end of the week I was a different person. I was focused, motivated and had purpose again. For the first time in months I had a strategy, a plan for my business and I knew exactly how I was going to proceed.

I also found out that I could work with him. He would mentor me and show me exactly how he generates leads, builds lists, uses attraction marketing, uses a website to showcase his products and services and how he markets to millions of people all around the world via social media.

He was not going to charge me thousands per hour, not even thousands per year. He was however, going to show me how to market my business online professionally. how to build a website, how to create an email list that would become my loyal customers and lots more besides.

So how come he’s not charging thousands?

He has an online academy where he, along with other members of his team,  mentors hundreds of students. This means that he can charge less per student and so make it affordable for people like me.

I signed up for $29 and it was the best $29 I have ever spent. I got access to a whole array of tools and resources. They even built me a website and showed me how to use it to market goods and services online to make money.

Over the next few months they taught me how to market anything to anyone anywhere in the world. And that’s what changed my life.

I was then able to market my own services much more effectively, and for the first time get paying customers come to me rather than having to go out chasing them.

Not only that, I now use what they taught me in my own mentoring practice and I have helped hundreds of people to start their own businesses and become profitable faster. I now have a career and business that I love and that I would never have had if I hadn’t seen that guy on the pedalo that day.

So in the spirit of reciprocity, I would like to give something back to him and at the same time help you too, win win 🙂
