Today perhaps more than ever learning the skills necessary to market online has become essential. Marketing an online business has become crucial in an ever expanding internet. In this article I would like to give you three tips for marketing an online business to help you get started.

Marketing an online business. Tip #1 You need a website that people can find

Although there are various way to market online without your own website (email marketing, article marketing as an affiliate with direct linking) in 2011 you really need a website to have success. The challenge is not only to have a website (this has becomes easier today than ever to do on your own) but the real challenge is having a website that people can find (the people that you are targetting).

You need to have a webiste and be able to generate traffic to it (visitors) through primarily three means: SEO (search engine optimization), article marketing, and pay per click. Which brings me to my second tip.

Marketing an online business. Tip #2 How to get traffic to your website

SEO. At first I thought this was beyond my ability to learn. Sounds to complicated and perhaps you do want to hire someone to do this for you. This is certainly a great option if you don't have the time and you do have the money to do this. But if you don't have the money you can learn to do SEO.

There are a lot free and paid options on the internet. Just know that the free options are ultimately wanting you to get their paid option, which is fine if they are offering true value with their free option so that you become interested in what they are selling that can add even more value.

Article marketing. Once again you can do this yourself or you can outsource it (some charge around five dollars per article). This is still an effective way to drive traffic.

Pay per click. Before you spend money here you want to make sure you know what you are doing by getting the proper training otherwise you can loose money. Which brings me to my last tip, if you really want to do this right, look to get quality training on how to do internet marketing.

Marketing an online business. Tip #3 Get further quality training

What do you look for in choosing a place to get trained. Here is what I would look for:

-Access to internet marketing tools such as a keyword research tool, website building tools, click bank tools

- If you can get hosting included in your training you'll be able to save on not having to pay this somewhere else separately

-One of the main things I would look for is access to personal one on one help. This is probably one of the best things you can get

-I would also look for training that offers webinars and access to forums with other internet marketers so that you can stay on top of the latest trends

Marketing an online business requires you to have a website, drive traffic to it (the right type of traffic) and get ongoing training to stay current with internet trends.
