Marketing With Alex…

I named this post Marketing With Alex because I want to describe what means to be part of Alex Jeffreys’ coaching program.

I could easily named this post as The Importance of Having a Coach, because that’s really what this is all about. After several months of struggling alone or with training programs impersonal and where you’re left by your own, being part of this coaching program can be described as a thrilling experience in terms of  feeling that you are part of something.

Why Marketing with Alex?

Alex Jeffreys, who has been praised (with justice) by a lot of other marketers, works with us with a real caring feeling. I mean, you really feel that Alex cares for you and for your success. Don’t misunderstand me here, Alex is not “giving” you everything… he doesn’t do your work for you. But he’s there, showing you the way at the same time you must walk by your own feet.

Also, the community he built around his coaching programs is the best support one can have to progress in this hard journey to become a successful online marketer. From the very beginning, you know you’re not alone. You know Alex is there to help you and to be your guide. He gives you the information you need, he teaches how to build your business and has the gift to create in you the right mindset for success.

Then you start meeting your fellow students, people that are as green as you or some other with more experience, and you all share the burning desire to get there, to cross arms with this wonderful guys and gals and thrive together even if the way ahead is foggy and full with obstacles. They are there to encourage you, to give their honest opinion about what you’re doing, to share what will make your journey a little more easy and, also, to share a joke and help you to see everything in perspective. Because you must have FUN in this Journey.

Being an Internet Marketer, to have success online, doesn’t need to be only work and tears. If you don’t have fun, you will not get closer your objective.

Suddenly you discover people from previous coaching programs, some of them already very successful, and boy, this becomes more and more interesting.

Imagine, you stumble across a famous Internet Marketer, you follow his blog, you subscribe his list and you even buy his products. And then, they’re there, side by side with you, in the same forum, giving you advice, talking to you, showing that you can really have success, because not long ago they were just like you are now. And you believe.

And that’s when this adventure becomes more and more interesting. You wrote a simple question in the forum, about something you don’t know or you just have doubts, and you receive the answer from someone that you used to look as a being from other galaxy… awesome!

Of course there are dangers here. And, speaking for myself, one of the biggest problems I have now is to get away from the forum. There are so many interesting threads, so many valuable information, that you just want to participate, and talk, and discuss, and ask… it’s like when you go to a party and you become so involved talking with people that you don’t eat or drink nothing!

There is work to be done. As I told above, Alex shows you the way but it’s for you to actually walk. You cannot just stay there talking and socializing, although it’s difficult not to do so. But you must work.

I’m a little bit late in the task I imposed myself regarding traffic generation.  And writing articles. But I’ll do them.

Alex told us to write down what we do during the day. I found myself spending almost 2 hours each day in the forum :p

He also told us how important is time management. Well, starting tomorrow all my activities will be planned and with fixed schedule. Because I want to succeed. Not just watching my friends having success, what can happen if I just stay in the forum reading and commenting.

So, do not forget: go to the forum, socialize, help, ask for help, share a joke but reserve time for work. Otherwise your first blog post will be your only post 12 months from now.

    Hi Jorge

    I know what you mean about the forum, its hard to keep up with all the threads and to reply & help out, but its something that I try to do so that I can be part of the community.

    Reading the blogs is the same, I hop from one to another and before I realise I’ve spent hours reading, hopping and commenting!

    Good luck with your blog and your online business.

    Hello Jorge,

    Your blog is coming along very nicely.
    Keep up the great work.

    Looks like all the MWA 3.0 students are working hard.
    I visited many of others over the weekend and most are getting started nicely.

    For me, the hardest part is “Just starting”

    I look forward to working with you in the future and Long live the MWA 3.0 Generation!

    Hey Jorge,

    Your post reminded me of where I was. There is quite a buzz around AJ’s coaching and rightly so.

    Stick with the plan, keep learning, because it just gets better 🙂

    Have fun!

    Take care

    Hi guys

    Thanks for stopping by and for your comments. I commented about this topic in Forum and got an answer by Alex Jeffreys and he’s right, we must give time to time, just can’t do everything at the same time.

    Must plan the work, must set the schedule and must keep going, but for the moment, the focus is Oil Rig Hopping 😉

    Anyway, it’s been quite an awesome experience reading comments in my blog, posting comments in fellows students blogs and participating in the forum.

    I think we’re in the right direction, so just let get moving!

    Hi Jorge,

    It is so true what you say about not letting yourself get side tracked in the forum I was reading some threads the other day and before I knew it 4 hours had passed. Stay focused take action and success will follow

    Your post is spot on. At the end or the day, we’ve got to work. That means not only checking out the blogs, forum and posting comments (though I just love doing this!) but also, going out there and getting more traffic – not of the 3.0 kind!

    You challenged me on my blog about writing up my plans. Next stage – is I’ve got to write and post some articles. I won’t give YOU a time frame for that as Isomehow expect a beating if I miss it!

    You’re an encouragement anyway.

    Hi Jorge,

    You are doing a great job and your blog is really taking shape. The big trick that everyone forgets is “take action and then take more action everyday.”

    Just remember what Alex says about “Don’t get it right just get it up there.” You can always come back later and improve things and it will surprise you how many things will become very successful.

    All the best,

    Glen Wayne and Dan Tredo

    P.S. Also remember that your greatest marketing asset will be building your email list.

    Hi Glen and Dan
    Thank you so much for your comment.
    That’s very true, our main asset is our list and I’m working on it.
    I’m really trying to provide value in this blog so people that comes by real enjoy the experience and feel interested in subscribing my newsletter.
    I know that I still have a long way to go, but at least I started, which I didn’t do for a very long time. And I’m enjoying every little step.

    Hi Jorge,

    I feel like such a turtle and way behind the curve with this group. However, even though I’m slowly crawling, I’m still moving forward.

    I’ve enjoyed going through your blog and reading your posts. I’ll be back again.

      Hi Gloria

      I remember the turtle won the race 🙂 Don’t worry, keep at your own pace, just remember to keep going.

      I’m slowing also a little bit because I was interfering too much with my off-line business, and for the moment that’s the obe that pays the bills.
