Greetings, welcome to my blog “IM-Domination” (Internet Marketing Domination) and thank you so much for stopping by.
I have been working online since 2008, but it was a love and hate relationship at the same time. Things were very hard at first due to the lack of knowledge and started and stopped doing it several times. For me it was hard to see how to properly monetise online but I did not give up, kept coming back to it. It was also very difficult to spend time researching what needed to be done for a successful online business due to my 12-16 hour a day job. By profession I am an electronics/computer systems design engineer and that took all my energy and time leaving not much in the reserves, always deadlines and new problems to solve.
In 2015 I decided that I need to do this full time in order to accelerate the online business building process. It was time to build my own business and not others’. This became even more evident after a heart wrenching experience when my daughter sent me an email asking me when she can talk to me, she was in year 8 that time.
What Is IM-Domination About?
Well, during my online marketing journey I have spent a lot of money and found that most of that was wasted on many courses or overseas travels to attend conferences to learn from the ‘gurus’ and on software tools. I found over the years that many of these things were unnecessary and that I spent a lot on fake software tools. What I mean by fake is many of the so called ‘gurus’ pay software developers to create a software which does not really help anyone in anything but looks good and sounds good. With these new product launches they make a lot of money and you waste your money. Lately it is even harder to work out which ones are real tools and systems that will actually work for your business and its expansion.
Some of these courses or tools are really helpful but as a starting online business owner with a current 9 to 5 job may not be able to afford them. At the start we all want to do online business on the side, with minimal expense, and gradually transition over to it and run it full time. It is great not needing to drive hours every day in the traffic nightmare to and from work and have the choice to drop our kids off at school and pick them up.
If you are spending money on one course after another and one software tool after another, I get it. I have been there. That is because you most likely did not succeed with the current one and you try to move on to the next one in the hope that will work for you. This is only valid thinking if what you have, course or tool, you implemented or used as they were intended to and did not succeed. If you are one of those people who have the ‘I must have the next shiny new thing’ syndrome and buy everything and not implement anything then you will not succeed with an online business. Online business requires the same dedication as any other conventional business.
So this site is going to show you what works and what does not. I will try to help you start your online marketing journey whether you decide to market physical or digital products, with the smallest expense possible. Even if you are already have an online business some of the information that I will provide will help you. There are many things that are free and can help you but ones that well dramatically increase your income will cost some money.
That is all in a nutshell and I will be updating this section in the future. I’d love to hear from you, so if you have any questions or comments at all, please feel free to comment on the blog or contact me.
Thanks for reading and see you around.
