Inside Secrets to Internet Marketing With Josh Spaulding

internet marketing

Book(s) Your Currently Reading?

Mainly personal, Faith based. I derive most of my IM/Business info from blogs, newsletters and individuals I’ve gotten to know.

Best Business Purchase?

Probably GetResponse (aWeber is just as good) because that’s when I started building my list … not long after, that list was paying all of my bills plus some.

Resource or website you use every day?

oDesk (outsourcing) JVzoo (product management)

Favorite Phone app?

I don’t believe I have any IM related apps, but my favorite app is probably RoboForm because it makes it much quicker to login to any site.

How did you create your business?

I started off while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. A friend of mine had a site that he was making a little money with and I thought it would be cool to just have a website out there that I owned. Then I learned about adsense and make a few bucks then. Then I started writing for $10 per 300 word article. That became too much work to keep up with, so I then started creating info products and building lists, which multiplied my income considerably. Now I do less info products and more software, but there is definitely money in both.

Describe your day to day operation?

Mine is probably much different than many. I would say ever IMer has a different day, as each business is a bit different, but mine consists of managing a great deal of outsourcing for current and future products. Outsource management probably takes up half of the day. The other half is typically composed of replying to emails, communicating with current and potential affiliates for my products and also Jonathan Leger products (I JV with him and I’m also his affiliate manager.) I’m also regularly researching and working on new products.

What is the most beneficial decision you have made for your business?

Deciding to build a list, by far.

Share the first moment you made a profit, and your response?

I honestly don’t remember, but I believe it was via Adsense for a click on my first website back in 2004. I was probably pretty excited. :)

What one piece of advice would you give someone wanting to start a similar business?

Don’t think about the money you may or may not make. Concentrate on helping people. That may seem cliché, but it’s very true. If you help others they will see that you’re genuine and it will come back to you… usually multiplied. Most people go wrong by concentrating on making a buck and people also see that.

I feel I would have been more successful if I would have done what sooner?

Started building my list! I waited several years before realizing the extreme profit potential of email marketing.

I am successful because….

I help people and get those same people on my email list.

Anything else you would like to share?

For a general audience I really just like to harp those two points: Genuinely help people and build a list. If I could only get 2 points across, it would be them. Also, don’t spend too much time trying to make things perfect, whether it’ s a website you’re trying to promote or something else. You will learn as you go and I find that moving on and constantly trying new things is the most efficient way to learn more in a shorter period of time. As you learn more things, you can always go back and implement that new knowledge on your previous projects, instead of wasting days, weeks or even months on one project going nowhere.

    Great and very informative interview, good questions!
    It’s great that he stated so clearly how important it is to start and grow a mailing list as soon as possible as it can become the main source of revenue and brind returning visitors.

    Thanks Eric!

    Great interview Eric. I’ve known and follow Josh. He is a down to earth no b.s. type of marketer. His quote about “Don’t think about the money you may or may not make” is so true.

    I think you too are on the right track to success.
    Regards
    Paul

    Thank you so much! I learned a lot from this interview.

    1. Concentrate on helping people – be genuine. Do not concentrate on making bucks because people might see that too.

    2. Build a list a soon as possible, truly “the money is in the list”… I always hear about that – this time am convinced!

    3. Do not try to make things perfect (I always do that and I find myself stuck somewhere)…

    I am taking knowledge in a gradual manner and I found it amazing! The things I’ve learned everyday about blogging is just awesome!

    Hi there Josh and Eric

    Being following you awhile Josh and thanks for the introduction to Eric

    I laughed at your reply to:

    ==

    because I remember clearly how I was jumping up and down to my first Adsense earnings of 01c!

    *GRIN*

    It was made in less than a day of placing the code and I was stunned!

    Yes lots of people were confused why my excitement for 01c

    but

    you, Eric and I know why *WINK*

    Must say Josh, your Germany website certainly looks different since I last saw it!

    Eric, I’ve joined your list!
