5 Concerns You Need Not Have With Internet Marketing

We all have concerns when we try something new, of that there is no doubt. Anyone who is starting internet marketing from scratch will have concerns and doubts. Most of these will be because you have not done this before and you don’t know how to. Well here is the good news – the web is the place to find the learning experiences we need to make this at home business happen. I believe that we needn’t be concerned.

Let’s look at five of the most common concerns which people have and my views as to why we shouldn’t be concerned.

1. I don’t know anything about the web.

The web is really only the highway on which we will do our marketing. In essence therefore you don’t have to know anything about the web itself, just what you need to put on it to make your business happen.

2. I couldn’t do a website

I thought that as well. I had used the web mainly for email for many years but never put a website together. What I found was that it is now a process where you visually put it together and the system actually builds it for you. The same approach happened over a period of time in computer programming. Believe it or not I can remember when such programming was completed by learning a language of zeros and ones which the machine interpreted as instructions – yes I am that old. The problem with this was that it took so long and was fraught with error. So common instructions were coded once and used many times and then we moved on to using English words instead of computer instructions. Well building a website is now at that advanced stage – you rough out on a piece of paper what you want to do and then choose from menus how to do it by putting pieces together. It is really simple and I must admit I got hooked – how can I make it look better? Then you start asking other people what to do and the great thing is that there are thousands of people out there who have done it before and are so willing to help. So no real problems with this one.

3. I can’t write very well

Articles are the way you get folks to visit your website, and you publish them through article sites. Sounds daunting doesn’t it? Well it really isn’t. You write an article and send it to the publisher who will review it, tell you if it needs more work or not and then they publish – simple really. But the hard part you say is writing the article. Again you can find courses to help you on this. An articles course will guide you through how to write articles. I did this and found it to be extremely useful. By the time I had finished the course I could do it on my own.

4. I can’t do this.

This is probably the biggest problem we all have when we are outside our comfort zone – I am nervous and I can’t really do this. I am a great believer that if you don’t try you will never know. It’s a bit like saying I don’t like Chinese food but I have never tasted it (apologies to Chinese food which I adore having never eaten it till I went to Hong Kong and became addicted!). Some learning sites have free trials to try their Internet Marketing tuition courses before having to pay anything and so why not give it a try for nothing? Play away for 10 days knowing you can walk away at the end and it doesn’t cost you a cent. You will be amazed how much you can do.

5. I am too old to do this.

Age is not an issue. I am retired and am well over the hill as they say. Older folk often have more time to try this wonderful world of Internet Marketing, but often this concern comes back to the lack of computer skills and here you need to find a learning institution to try and see how it all works together. I did exactly this and had no issues at all with being old. The courses are designed for you to work at whatever pace you want to, and age is never even discussed. In fact often the life experience base you bring with you can be very advantageous, in starting up an internet marketing at home based business.

So the real message here is don’t be concerned – give it a try. There is so much out there to help you make a success of internet marketing – enjoy!

I enjoyed your article. I started learning about internet marketing this past May and I had all five of the concerns that you mentioned. The answer for me was to simply understand that I would make mistakes and then jump in with both feet and take action. So far it's worked for me. Thanks for the article.
