Hi, First off I want to say that I'm new to the forum. I've read the rules and the sticky's and I'm not looking for a JV or partner. If I've made this thread in the wrong forum, I apologize! Going on... I think the best way to avoid being unsuccessful is finding a mentor that knows what he/she's doing. I've read a lot about marketing and I expect to be reading even more. I'm not going into marketing for "easy money" - cause I know it requires hard work and dedication from my end to start seeing profit from what I do. Beware that I'm NOT the kind of person that will be nagging or asking for multiple favors. I will respect your privacy and integrity and stay at a distance of your choice. Although I hope that as a mentor you will guide and review my work as time goes and give me feedback on what I do right and what I do wrong. I will also respect your wishes if you consider my market choice a threat towards your current markets and find something else. A bit of information about myself so you know what kind of experience and knowledge I have. 25 years old, good knowledge in account management and real life experience working with large companies in the technology sector. Good knowledge in computer security (MS) and web application security. One year marketing course at university. Avid user of social media marketing techniques. What I look for in a mentor would be someone that has a proven leadership ability and a good track record in Internet marketing. You should consider this a long-term relationship where you have the opportunity educate and give back to a driven person that is eager to learn more and when available return the favor. If you have questions direct them in the thread or PM me with a way to get in touch. (I'm not up to 15 posts yet, so I can't reply on PM's apparently.) Thank you for taking the time to read!
