Developing Your Self Confidence Online

xintheparkThere is a ton of information available online and it can certainly be a bit overwhelming, but there is something you need to understand about it that can help you to boost your brand and build your self confidence.

Are you taking information for the sake of learning something new or is it with the end goal of communicating with your market?

A lot of people get bogged down with trying to learn everything about the market they’re in only to know nothing at all. Often times people don’t give the information they’ve just received a chance to settle before they go buying the next package of information.

Before you start taking in all kinds of information ask yourself what the purpose of learning something new is and how will knowing this new information fit in to your purpose.

In the case of internet and affiliate marketing there is a glut of information out there, (enough to choke a horse actually) but if you were to break internet marketing down to it’s simplest level you would be left with three things:

1. Your product

2. Your sales letter

3. Your payment processor

Seems incredibly simple and when you break it down it really is. Yet many people lack the confidence they need to pursue such a simple model because they are on information overload.

So how can you fix this problem before you throw in the towel?

Before I answer that question let me just say this…

The only information that really matters is the information that comes from the market you’re in. Yes you need to learn some marketing basics, but if you never communicate with your market, you’ll always be lost as to what to sell, who to sell it to and how to sell it.

So the best action step I can give you right now that will help you to gain the confidence you need to build your online business and get you the information that matters most is to start a blog.

Start a free blog with or and offer as much content related to your market of interest and monitor the way people respond. Don’t worry about if they will like you or not, you will get a favorable response if you post regular content often that offers useful information the people in your market can benefit from.

Post often at least once or twice a day and if you feel like you don’t know what to write about just look at what other bloggers are saying about whatever is going on in your market and write about that.

Visit article directories and type in your main keyword and you’ll have a host of information you can write about and share with your market. The key to getting the best results by doing this is to inject your personality into the content. Write how you feel, give your opinion and you’ll get a response.

The faster you start to do this, the faster you’ll start to develop your confidence online and the sooner you will be able to find out exactly what people are looking for.

In a coming post we’ll talk a little about how to use that information to create or sell products that will benefit your readers as well as drive traffic.


P.S. Truth:  Most online marketers simply end up experiencing confusion, they spend way too much on crap ‘systems’ that don’t work, they make meager or non existent profits and end up completely overwhelmed.  If you’ve found yourself stuck in the trap of always learning and never doing… This is worth checking out

    Affiliate Marketing is a performance based sales technique used by companies to expand their reach into the internet at low costs. This commission based program allows affiliate marketers to place ads on their websites or other advertising efforts such as email distribution in exchange for payment of a small commission when a sale results.
