I’ve had quite a few requests for internet marketing coaching off the back of that blog post yesterday. So, this obviously needs to be addressed because I rather like the idea. However, pricing of such a service is not necessarily so straight forward.
I know that when I was learning the ropes with regards to IM and SEO I was willing to invest quite a large chunk of cash each month, simply because I was dead set on being successful. Some months I’d be paying upwards of $1000 US on coaching and on glossy ebooks. However, I know not everyone has that sort of cash flow. And it would be a shame to disqualify anyone simply because they do not have the cash available to invest.
Now, let’s just focus on something for a moment, just to shed some light here.
Take Chris for example – my young Texan friend who was the spotlight of yesterdays blog post. A few months ago (almost a year ago), when he first began emailing me, he was making next to nothing from his online endeavors. He sold a couple of websites for a decent sum, but otherwise there was no real regularity to his income. Back in December we discussed at length the idea of getting together and I would coach him to make upwards of a certain sum each month, every month within a period of 12 months.
Originally that sum was to be $2,000 a month income. We have since upped that amount to target $4,000 a month from internet marketing by December of this year. At the moment, he invests perhaps $200 a month on tools and what have you. Not a large sum to pay when you are starting to reap the just rewards, is it? Fact of the matter is that both Chris and I know we will hit that mark, very possibly with some ease too.
How much is my time worth to you then?
