If you are a home based business expert you probably are not reading this article. If you are like most everyone else then you could use as many tips as you can get. In this article we are going to talk about one important thing that you must know. We will call this the best home-based business tip you will ever get. Have you ever wondered why there are so many so-called Internet marketing gurus? A guru is someone who has achieved success on a higher level and now is attempting to teach what they have learned. There is no place that has a greater number of gurus than in the Internet marketing and home business arena.
Everybody has got a book, or a tape, or an ecourse, or a video, or an audio, or something that they are willing to offer to get you to listen to them. Much of this stuff is just recycled crap that really is designed to capture your name and e-mail address so they can sell you their overpriced programs. One tip we can give you is to find a Internet marketing mentor. You are looking for a mentor that is someone who walks the walk and talks the talk. Thankfuly there are many people who are legitimate. So how do you find them? You could do a Search for the word Internet marketing forum.
Go and join three or four of these and spend a few days watching and observing who is active, and who people are listening to. This could be a possible mentor right there. Some very sucessful people are active in discussion forums on a regular basis. If you're not sure who you should contact you can start your own discussion about it.
Ask the question who they would suggest for a Internet marketing mentor and then read the many replies. This is a great way to find someone that you can partner with to ensure your home-based business success. You might even rephrase the question and ask who to avoid. You will find that most discussion forums are brutally honest.
They are also a great source of information because you can get first-hand accounts of people's experiences in dealing with gurus. Because you are going to need help you cannot totally put a price on good information from a qualified teacher. It is very helpful to have someone you can contact by phone or by email to help you avoid some of the mistakes you might make while trying to build your own home based business.
