My name is Matt Trainer and I am a marketing moron. Why do I say that? I have spent over $100,000 on every kind of marketing book, course, seminar, etc. that you can imagine.
After spending that much money I have definitely learned a ton but the thing that makes me a moron is in the application of all I’ve learned. I spent two years learning but didn’t do nearly enough to follow through on what I learned. Sure I started a bunch of sites but never really tried to build something lasting. Plus I realized that I pretty much suck at marketing.
I have worked for years as a high end Flash developer doing large projects for MTV, The Oxygen Network, World Poker Tour, and Dr. Phil. I did design and development for all their websites etc. It pays great and is mostly fun to do. But ultimately I was still an employee (though I do work from home).
After a friend of mine died at the young age of 33, I had a wake up call. It was time to get off my ass and do something with all the knowledge I’ve gained. Now you can see how it all plays out here in my blog.
I am already very successful on the Internet and generate seven figures a year from home. Starting this blog is my way to try to teach what I know and to further my learning and success.
Stay tuned to see how the hell I do this stuff. I’ll teach you everything I know along the way.
P.S. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at matt (at) themarketingmoron.com. It may take me a while to get back to you but I always respond! 🙂
