7 Stages of Internet Marketers




If you want to jump-start your life and

your business, you have to know

what type of Internet

Marketer   you   are.


True financial success only comes to those that master this concept. So ask yourself, “Do you know what kind of Internet marketer you are”? .Have your marketing experiences on the Net been positive, negative or mixed?


As you read through the seven

stages of marketers

provided below,

I want you to know that at various times in my life. I have been at almost every single one of them. It was only as my knowledge and experience increased that I was able to upgrade to the level I am at today.


  First of all  at some point while

reading the descriptions

of each stages,

you will probably recognize where you are or where other people are you know. I recommend while reading you write down where you currently are as you discover your level. to help improve your awareness of your current strategy. This will also help you realize where you need to go.


Here are the seven stages of

Internet marketers.

Stage 1 – The Mooches

 “Mooches” are people at the very bottom level of marketing. They’re clueless and sit around wasting their time. Most are completely ignorant of the money making opportunities available on the Web.

These people spend their time whining about their financial status without taking the time to evaluate what they need to do to get ahead.


 Mooches don’t have a clue about

Internet marketing.

If you ask them what the Internet is for, they’ll say, “to chat” or “to e-mail friends” or even better, “to watch porn”. You know, something useless.


Stage 2 – The Wanna-Be

Because   The “Wanna-Be” has ambition, but not enough. They wander around in the dark looking under stones for a magic treasure box. They want to make money, but don’t have a clue how.

Some get sucked into ridiculous scams and waste their money on garbage ideas that won’t get them anywhere. They need to get smart quick about where they need to go to turn their life around.


Most Wanna-Be marketers have

heard of the Internet

 know people who make money on the Net, so they are easily excited about opportunities. Unfortunately they spend most of their money on M.L.M and other money making scams rather than chasing real opportunities.




Stage 3 – The Pretend To Be

  For example   the “Pretend To Be” is living a lie. They pretend to work hard, to do what it takes to get where they need to be. But they don’t actually DO anything. Most are perfectionists, worried about getting it right the first time.


Most importantly   they don’t realize just how much

they can learn even  by making a few    mistakes.

 Pretenders are waiting for the perfect time to start a new business. They don’t realize the perfect time is NOW. They talk talk talk about starting an Internet business but lack the guts necessary to DO IT.


Many have successful off-line

businesses and spend lots

of their hard earned money

attending seminars and

buying e-books about

Internet marketing.

A good example of a Pretender is a successful overworked doctor who spends $20,000 on info-products but doesn’t develop a website. The Pretender doesn’t understand a key principle of this industry…


You don’t have to get it right the first

time; you just  have to

get started.


Stage 4 – The Newbie


Also  the “Newbie” is on their way to the fast track, they just lack experience. They have the desire to learn and grow, and may have the skill and talent necessary.

  Moreover  they jump into opportunities with all the freshness one would expect of an eager beaver in the industry. They have done some homework, but lack the technical know how to get where they need to be.


There is hope for the Newbie.

Moreover   they feel excited and probably have read a few books about Internet marketing. Unlike Pretenders, they are willing to invest a lot of time in themselves.

Some will buy resale rights, reprint rights, licenses of many products… but lack the know how about how to market them.





Stage 5 – The Marketer


 “Marketer” is well on their way to victory. They are making some money. They are strong marketers. They still lack the ambition necessary however to get off their butt and do what they need to do to truly realize victory.

Most Marketers have a website or a moneymaker but don’t have a business. They posses a strong understanding of marketing, copywriting and traffic generation and have a clear sense of what their audience is looking for.


First of all   They are often leaders

within their niche and  make

good  money.


 Therefore They enjoy a comfortable living. The problem is they are sitting on their “ass-ets” and thinking what they have accomplished so far is all they can do. They fail to realize there is more opportunity available if they are willing to put in a little extra effort.

Stage 6 – The Master


 “Master” is a smart marketing agent. They are making good money, and can teach others how to do the same. Most are visionaries, charismatic leaders who have a good handle on everything they need to succeed.

because   they’ll fail only if they stop thinking about what more they can do. There is always more success just around the corner, if only one takes the time to look.

Master marketers are millionaires,

or at least making 6  figures a year.


For example  they are leaders in their industry. They are well versed in direct response marketing and can teach others. They have a vast amount of knowledge both on-line and off-line and experience working in different businesses.

Most have experience working with adversity. They are high performance people who make great mentors. Most understand traffic conversion and traffic generation.


But the Master marketer can get into

any niche and  make money,

even if they don’t have any affinity or experience working with a niche. However  some  recognize the Internet is nothing more than a medium they can use to make money. They integrate on-line and off-line marketing.

They posses a solid understanding of copywriting, testing and tacking.They build a team of experts around them and delegate responsibility to talented people.




Stage 7 – The Entrepreneur


This is where everyone should aspire to be. The Entrepreneur has already achieved true victory. They are the models that others try to mimic and follow. If you ask me, your goals should be no less than achieving “The Entrepreneur ” statue.


Now there are the multimillionaires,

the master sales people and the

master marketers.

 have a strong team of talented people with different expertise surrounding them. These are the people taking their companies public. They are raising capital and selling to the public… to shareholders… but not to customers.

To sum it up have an exit strategy in place before starting something new. They recognize the purpose of a business is to sell it or put it on autopilot so they can enjoy their lives to the fullest. This is where you want to be.


Example: ebay.com, google.com,

yahoo.com… etc.


So now I ask you… Which one are you? Which one do you want to be? The people you know, which level are they at? Are they realizing their dreams? Why or why not?

have a firm understanding of where you are NOW and where you WANT to be soon if you want to succeed.


Don’t just charge ahead blindly,

but don’t sit on you’re

ass either.

If you want to succeed, take charge of your life and your financial future. Find out where you are, and what steps you need to take to be where you want to be.

Making Money On The Internet


Why You Arent Making The Money You Want To On The Internet And What To Do About It!



Many clients come to me with problems…


The most common problem I hear from people is they arent making the kind of money they want to make with their Internet business. They dont know what the problem is and they want me to help.

Ill tell you what the problem is. Most of these people are what I like to call “opportunity seekers.” These are people that have too many sites and dont spend any time focusing on ONE business. They may have 20 or 30 websites,

with each site only breaking even or making a few hundred dollars every month.

Most opportunity seekers are not making the money they want or achieving their financial goals. Why?They are making a common mistake. They have too many sites, too many interests. This prevents them from focusing their efforts and creating the six figure income they dream of.

Focus Is The Key To Long-Term Success


If you want to succeed on the Internet, you are much better-off staying focused. That means starting off with one site or idea and perfecting it before moving on to the next Internet adventure. Far too many people have a “get rich quick” mind-set. In fact, Id say almost all opportunity seekers have this mind-set.


They jump from one program to another hoping one of them will lead to success.

Opportunity seekers are always the first to jump on the next “big” moneymaking bandwagon. It may be one thing one month, another the next month. They may try to concentrate on affiliate marketing then switch dramatically to e-book marketing the next.

Whatever seems to be working for others they jump into with wild abandon, without considering their true talents, abilities and interests.These people are looking for some easy way to make money.

They think they can make money with Google AdSense or just a web page,

How even with a multilevel marketing program. This is NOT how an entrepreneur thinks! However, this is exactly how an opportunist thinks. They always are looking for shortcuts, and then wonder why it isnt working.

  Therefore  it isnt working because you have no focus. You must have focus. You must think like an entrepreneur. Focus is one of the most vital aspects of your success. My advice to these newbies is shut down 29 of your sites and focus on one site,

the one that best represents your interests.

Optimize it. Work on refining it. Refine your sales process and your back end on this single site and make it successful BEFORE you move on to the next site.

Because I have many sites. But I am Dan Look. Youre not there yet. Perfect your one site. THEN you can think about moving on to other moneymaking ventures.

Horizontal Vs. Vertical Business


Many people have what I call a horizontal business. A horizontal business has many sites in many different niches, like hobby niches. People who own horizontal businesses have 20 or more separate business ventures. I recommend having a vertical business instead.

A vertical business is a business that has depth and focus.

Having a vertical business means if you have a product in a particular niche, like stock trading, focus on selling products related to that and that only. Put all your eggs in one basket and create a funnel effect.

This way youll have one group of customers and you can become a big fish in a small pond. Youll have all your eggs in one place yes… but youll become an expert egg layer and watch all your eggs hatch with great success. Make sense?

What is the problem with a horizontal business?


You arent specialized. Its almost impossible to make a six-figure income with this kind of business because you dont spend enough time on any ONE business.

When you have a vertical business, you have fine-tuned your business so well competitors have a hard time keeping up with you. People cant compete. You also build a strong client base with satisfied customers.

Think Like An Entrepreneur

The biggest problem people have is they are opportunity seekers. The key is thinking like a true Internet entrepreneur. Don’t jump on the trend bandwagon. Don’t ask what the shortcuts are. An entrepreneur has a long-term vision. You have to have a one-year,

five year and ten year vision. Find out what you want your business to look like in the long-term.

Ask yourself, “What do I want to accomplish ultimately?” Then decide whether your activities fit with your goals. Stop jumping from one program to another. Focus on one program, one site, and one great idea. This is what you have to do if you want to make six figures.

It has nothing to do with your knowledge, skill set experience etc. It has to do more with your focus.

Sit down. Think about it. Stop jumping from one program to another and stop getting sucked into false moneymaking schemes. Find out what your goals are, what you want to accomplish. This is a far superior approach. Yes, it takes a lot of energy.

But its worth it. In the long-term its much less tiring than diversifying your business.


Once you are an expert in your industry or niche, THEN you can think about diversifying your business.
