Hi, my name is Percy Barr and I am the owner, designer, writer, chief bottle washer and anything else that get done at Barr World.
Internet marketing has always been an interest of mine but it wasn’t a goal….just a dream. So I in 2015 I acted on that dream and took the plunge by creating this site. What I quickly found is although there is a lot of information about getting started in IM (Internet Marketing) there are still a lot of challenges you have to make to get things done. HTML, CSS, MySQL and PHP can be confusing and intimidating. My thoughts are it doesn’t have to be that way.

Anyone that can use a web browser and has found this web site should have the technical ability to create their own website.
IM marketing is about taking an idea, need or a service and promoting it via the internet. We all have ideas that if we acted on would make us money but not every idea we have are viable. The real question is can we make money with this idea? This will takes some research and some time to develop. Most people want to jump and start “doing something” before they know what something is. I think it makes sense to do the work up front to see if you have a product that has a market. A little planning at this part of your business will reduce a lot of time and wasted effort.

Without a product and a way to get paid you don’t have a business
Following your dreams will be costly. It will cost you time, energy and maybe a little money. When you have one of these times you will need to have someone come along side of you and encourage you to keep moving and break through. It may be a technology issue or a personal issue or you are just burnt out. This is a time to step back and refocus before you move on. Maybe your just need some encouragement to keep going. I hope I can share some pearls of wisdom that have been shared with me.
