When you learn to drive you go to driving school. This is the quickest, safest and lowest cost way of developing the appropriate skills. How long would it take you without an instructor? The same is true for internet marketing.

So, before you get started, or, if you have started, but are considering throwing in the towel do yourself a favor and develop "road sense". Learn the basics and you can be confident that with focus and application you can make a living online.
