Mistake #1 – InternetMarketingMistakes.net and Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS)

For Mistake #1 I want talk about my business …

… specifically I am referring to this website InternetMarketingMistakes.net.

Which started of hosted at InternetMarketingMistakes.co.business …

… due to the fact that I bought lifetime.hosting as a “great idea” and starting building, or as I state on this site as Take Action .

Take Action is one of the key components that is needed and is not necessarily a mistake in itself, but taking action without a thorough and well thought out plan is a Mistake .

 

So a quick domain name forwarding configuration at GoDaddy solved the problem, for the most part, but still caused issues with the .co.business showing up during Facebook sharing and confusion when links were shared.

So, I migrated the site over to fix this mistake … and got an SSL cert in the process.

Now back to the big mistake that is Mistake #1 …

… I meant for Internet Marketing Mistakes to be about building a profitable business online by creating valuable content for my “customers”, the people that I want to connect with.

But before that happened I got caught up in reading about copywriting and that lead me to shift my focus to making sales!

And, well I turned this site into a big ugly experiment of posts that still read like pushy sales copy, or landing pages that make bold claims trying to sale products …

… do not get me wrong, the product and reviews of those products on my site are valuable to what this site is about;

… but they should be secondary and used as landing pages or squeeze pages for when there is a launch or a legitimate review, that adds value to my customer base or better thought of as my audience, to who I want to provide value … not just blast them with push sales pages.

Do not get me wrong with what I am saying, the style of making claims, even bold claims is ok and is part of what attracts me to this niche! But it is not what I wanted this page to be all about, I want it to provide tips, tricks and hints based on the mistakes made and/or seen along my journey.

I type this with the intent of full disclosure, because I am just like you, I am that guy that wants to be big in this niche …

… and I started by chasing all the shiny tools and false promises of the “big bucks” online, especially in this niche …

… so I am currently getting over SOS, or Shiny Object Syndrome.

And, I am working to get back to my focus and original idea of writing about my mistakes so you do not have to make them …

… or at least have a landing page that you can relate to and a sounding board for help if I can help you to correct them and move forward …

… with a solid plan and focus on building a business in this niche that provides value.

More to follow, soon, with video reviews and updates to every post on this page, that gives real in-depth reviews of the products and what they can do for you, and I plan to do that via me showing you what they have done for me …

… as well as what and how I plan to use them in the future …

To go From Mistakes to Money!
