Internet Marketing Basics

https://www.tibco.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/abacus.jpg

The very basics of INTERNET MARKETING ARE:

 

  • Having a product that has a market
  • Using the right platform to sell it on (almost always, a website)
  • Getting enough people to visit your website.

That’s it! If your internet marketing program doesn’t cover these things, then they assume you already have the product, platform, and traffic.

Don’t buy any internet marketing program, any informational e-book, any “secret system” or “winning formula” until you at least know these things:

How to build a website
How to drive traffic to your website
How to write reasonably good content.

If you can’t write, don’t know basic web design, and know nothing about how to build online traffic, then you are wasting your time with the other stuff.

In the beginning, you need a way to make money without advertising. You need a way to draw traffic without paying to get links. And you need a way to make a website (without money) to drive all of your free traffic to.

I cover all of this and more in my e-course “How to sell anything online.”

You’ll learn how to develop a website that is effective, and optimized for the search engines.

You’ll learn how to drive quality traffic to your website.

And I’ll show you how to collect payments online. I’ll teach you how to do all of this with absolutely no money or advertising in the beginning.

You’ll learn step-by-step what it takes to be an overnight internet success.

Will you make a million dollars overnight? Anything’s possible if you believe. But I think a better goal might be to make a decent income so you can afford some of the bells and whistles that can make you a million down the road.

How to Make Money Online

Making money online doesn’t have to be difficult.

Hi. I’m Sue Melin, author of How to Sell Anything Online.
If you are struggling to make money online, you owe it to yourself to try my new tutorial. In it, I’ll show you the ins and outs of making money online. But first, I want to let you know that making money online is not some mysterious “formula” that you have to learn from an internet blackbelt. Internet marketing is just a term for making money off of the internet. It’s not rocket science, nor does it require a college degree. You just need to be shown how to do it, in logical order. Actually, I want you to think of internet marketing like you think of gardening. If you hate growing plants, it may because you think that it’s too hard. And if you love growing plants, it’s because… you know how! But whether you do or don’t know how, the rules of gardening always work. That is:Evolution of a young plant

“If You Give Your Plant the Right Soil, the Right Temperature, and the right sunlight, you can expect a perfect plant everytime”.

It doesn’t have to be hard, and it really isn’t, provided you understand the basics.

Well, in the same way,  did you know that just as plants have certain universal laws that govern their “how to” of growth, so does internet marketing. You just have to tend to your product in the proper manner. Once you learn some basics, and implement them in the proper order, you can expect to make money online.

So many people these days are looking to make money online, but they don’t know where to start or where to go to find the information they need. When you sign up for my internet marketing training series, How to Sell Anything Online, you will be shown step-by-step what you need to do in order to build an online marketing funnel via screenshots, graphics, and highly detailed in structions.

How to Succeed at online marketing

I really should have penned this article “How to Succeed at Online Marketing ‘ or anything you try, because this principle will work with any goal you have.

W.I.T.

Wit is the acronymn. What does wit stand for?

What It Takes.

Why it makes sense to sell a product you actually like+

Selling what you love:Reason number one: You are going to be exposed to it every day. If you are shipping out sparkplugs everyday, and you have no interest in them, you’ll get bored. But if you are selling something you make and love, you will enjoy it more.

Reason number two: If you have no passion for your product, you will lose interest in promoting it. Think about it; how are you going to sound jazzed about a product you are promoting if you have no interest in it?

Reason number three: if your product promotion involves writing e-zines, reviews, or posting articles every day, you are going to run out of things to say unless you know about your product and/or research your product. If you aren’t in love with your product or well acquainted with it, you writing juices will run dry. And people will feel it.

It’s not all about the money. And even if it were, you won’t make much if the passion isn’t there.  Before you jump on the “what product will make me the most money”  caravan, find the  best product for you personally.

The Basics of Selling online

Have something to sell, and for goodness sake,  let it be an actual product. If you sell a product that tells people how to sell online, make sure that you have actually sold something yourself…online.

Affiliate Marketing is not the same as selling. If you are an affiliate marketer, and you actually make money, then you are a marketer.  What is a marketer? A marketer is someone who knows how to make something look good in the market place. It may include making other people’s items look good. That’s what affiliates do. They are paid to PROMOTE other people’s products. But listen, that is NOT the same as selling. Yes, I do realize you may earn an affiliate fee for every person who buys…assuming they buy from you during the right time period, and don’t use a different computer the second (third or fourth) time they visit the product.

When you sell something, you have access to the information first hand on who bought your product. When you sell your own product, you don’t have to worry about being paid your commissions by a third party.

Affiliate, do you ever wonder if you are being ripped off by your third party company like commission junction or click bank? Have you ever asked yourself, “What would stop them from keeping my customer’s money, and sending them a pirated copy of my material?” I know….you trust your third party affiliate company.

Since trust runs so freely amongst affiliates, let me encourage you to take a bold step of faith…let me ask you to consider selling your own stuff….and keeping more of the profits.
