Digital marketing guru is just another name for…are you ready for this? The other guy that figured out how all this internet marketing stuff works and is making a killing at it. A guy, or gal, that you just wish you could be like, or at least have a successful business like theirs.
But here’s the ugly truth. The deck is stacked against you from becoming the digital marketing guru you want to be. Sure you’ve read all the books, your on all the email lists and you follow a few dozen blogs which you read daily. You read, you study, you learn. But, you don’t do what the guru’s advise you to do.
If you are on a magic train waiting for it to take you to to guru land where traffic is abundant and clicks are never ending, then you need to step off the train. You need to face reality.
Be your own digital marketing guru
It’s a sad fact, but there are way more non-guru types involved in online content marketing and business who are truly making huge amounts of money online. You may never reach the “guru” status. But then again, you may.
“The thing is, you have to become your own digital marketing guru and quit trying to be one of the other guys.”
The more you try to be like them, the more time you are taking away from being you. But there is still that nagging thought that you too, can become a fantastic digital marketer. And to that I say, yes you can.
Never Give Up
Take Jon Morrow for instance. He is what you might call a digital marketing guru. A super marketing hero. Or you could call him for what he is. A guy who learned how to apply what he learned to become a well known individual in a crowded space of online marketers.
What you may not know is that he can’t move from the neck down. He is confined to a wheelchair. But don’t feel sorry for him. He pulls in more in a month than many make in years. How? Determination. Motivation.
You can read Jon’s story here.
Do you have what it takes?
I think you do. I think you do have what it takes to become your own digital marketing guru. Will you ever make the money you dream of? Maybe not, or just maybe you will. That is up to you. Nobody else can do it for you. You first have to see yourself where you want to be, then do what it takes.
To help you fix that image in your mind, I suggest you read this book about positive imaging. Once you do, you will have no excuse not to be your own guru. Or at least you can be closer to it than you are now. Grab a copy of the book now on Amazon and see yourself where you want to be.
