Barb Ling here and well…
I’ve been marketing now since the earth’s crust cooled (okay, 1997) or so.
And you know something….
One of the biggest niches that *every* marketer *needs* to master….
… but will hardly ever admit their need….
(hope you’re sitting down)
… is the essential skills niches for marketers.
For newbies, not knowing it… it can be mighty embarrassing indeed!
You know the stuff…. things like before you build your list via a squeeze page, you first need to internalize:
Where do you store that list?
How do you tie that list into your squeeze page?
What the heck is a squeeze page anywhos?
It’s my partner, Dennis Becker, to the rescue!
“…I’ve mentioned a lot about the 3 yearsthat it took me (from 2002 through the
end of 2005) to go from online newbie
to someone who was actually making a
decent living at this.
Thinking back, those 3 years were
mostly spent learning stuff, and trial
and error, and failure, and figuring
out the basics.
Humph. 3 years to figure out the basics.
There was no one that I knew of that
was teaching them all in one place.
And there was no YouTube until 2005.
But even today, can you even learn
the basics from YouTube?
And what are basic skills anyway?
Sure, if you know what questions to
ask and are willing to sift through
100’s of videos to find the few that
are up to date and not just trying
to sell you something.
So the person who contacted me asked
me where he could learn the basic
skills that online marketers need.
He had started offline businesses,
but wanted a quick start to online.
I was stumped.
And like I said, I thought and then
I had an idea, and for the last couple
months I’ve been putting this into
In one place, you can find training
on the basic skills that might be holding
Skills that took me 3 years to figure
out on my own.
Skills that the lack of cause many
others to just quit due to frustration.
And many of the skills on the site are
well beyond the newbie types of basic
skills, especially some of the training
Because we all progress with what we
already know until we hit a roadblock.
And then we tend to slow down for a while
until we get past that.
IF we get past that.
And so it goes.
There are currently over 400 short videos
on the site.
Topics like the obvious (FTP, domains,
hosting, CPanel, Gmail, etc.)…
… and HTML and CSS, Google marketing,
screencasting, graphics, security…
… and autoresponders, Amazon S3, and
PLR makeover tactics.
And WordPress, OMG, virtually anything
and everything you need to know about
WordPress, including things you might
not appreciate now, but will later.
If you need to know something, you can
find the training very quickly, and move
on… roadblock avoided.
Until you need to know something else,
and bingo… there it is.
I shudder to think that if I had access
to this training, all in one place, at
an affordable cost, back in 2002, I could
have cut my 3 years of struggling down to
3 months, or less.
And the lost income during that period…
Figure that after 2005 I was earning over
6-figures annually. If I could have started
doing that in 2003, instead of 2006, I
lost well over a quarter of a million dollars.
DAB Basic Skills (DAB stands for Dennis
and Barb by the way, I’m Dennis, and Barb
Ling is my partner) is now open for you.
There are over 400 videos there now, and
we definitely have plans in the future to
add to the training with content other
than video, including compilations of
many of my own writing as well as the
best of what I’ve licensed elsewhere.
The price I’ve set today might not be
the price in the future. I really do
believe the value is huge for the
I hope you agree.
This might sound like it’s just for
new marketers, but the content goes
well beyond that, I guarantee.
There’s stuff there that I need to look
at closer myself, but I haven’t reached
that particular roadblock yet.
