Many people like to associate with others who share a common interest. This is where the concept of “clubs” came from. If you are, or want to be, and internet marketer you will no doubt be interested in finding an internet marketing club to become a member of.
I think we all intuitively understand that by associating with others in our profession we can learn more and possibly even meet others who can help us with our business in one form or another.
Education is the main reason people want to join an internet marketing club, and you can learn a lot, but camaraderie is also a great side benefit.
Online, not all “clubs” will be called “clubs”. As a matter of fact, when you do a search for that term you will get a lot of results and many of them will be more about a members only type of course than an actual club.
There are also a lot of forums online where the members are interested in internet marketing and are ready and willing to share experience and guidance with each other.
When it comes to building a business online it is important to try and connect with others who can help you get a foot hold. Sometimes this help will come in the form of a little knowledge, sometimes in the form of an introduction to someone else that can help you and sometimes in the form of a critique.
Whatever form it takes, it’s always better to have a “team” of people helping you accomplish the goals you have for your business. You’ve heard the expression “two heads are better than one”. Well how about a dozen heads, or more?
Another thing to keep in mind that there are many courses online. These may also be more like a club but the primary reason for their existence is just for training.
This is different from a club where you will learn things but that knowledge comes more from interacting with others than actually taking a class or watching videos.
Make sure that when you start your search for a club to join that you keep that distinction in mind. Also make sure that you take some time to explore any club, class or coaching program before you buy it.
You sure don’t want to invest money in a product that is run by someone who is shady or just doesn’t know what they are doing.
Also, determine what you hope to get out of your club. If you are primarily interested in just meeting other internet marketers to form possible joint venture partnerships and / or just to pick their brains, there are many places online where you can do that such as forums.
And, if you are looking for more of a one on one learning program finding an internet marketing coaching class may be the better option.
The really neat thing about the internet is that it is so expansive and you can find pretty much anything you are looking for. If you are looking for an internet marketing club you will have many options. Just choose carefully… you get what you pay for.
