The Beginning.

I wonder how many of you have decided to make a living online by doing internet marketing? Sometimes it can happen almost overnight so to speak and almost forced upon you. This can come from any number of reasons such as suddenly being made redundant, becoming ill and not being able to work a normal nine to five job or maybe having a sick partner and being forced to work from home. Perhaps you're a solo parent or even at the other end of life and are a retired person who needs extra money simply to survive. Whatever your reason you suddenly find yourself in front of your computer desperately trying to make a living.

Where Do You Start.

Every newcomer to Internet Marketing has asked themselves the very same question and it's one with a number of answers. Firstly there is no one particular way of going about this IM thing and turning it into a business. There is one thing guaranteed though, it will certainly not happen overnight. That statement is not meant to dissuade you from beinning this journey but it is the reality of the whole internet marketing business. The first thing is to decide what you want to sell/market and build a blog or a website.

Deciding on a Product.

Some of you will have absolutely no difficulties in deciding which product you are going to promote. You may have a background in business or accounting and wish to write and promote business advice. Another person may come from a gardening background or some DIY type background such as building. These products can also be satisfactorily marketed online. The truth of the matter is that there is almost nothing that cannot be turned into an internet marketing online business.

How to Promote Your Product

There are a number of ways in which to begin marketing and promoting your product of choice, just keep in mind the ultimate result is to get people/traffic to your website. Some internet gurus will use the expression, "the money is in the list." The longer you are in this business the more frequently this expression will be heard and if at the beginning you're wondering just what is this "list" don't be concerned because it will all become clear very quickly.

The List.

The list can acquired a number of ways and one of the most common and the one most newcomers will be familiar with is the little box so frequently seen on a website. It usually has an invitation to leave your name and email address for the website owner to send you some FREE product. This may be a newsletter, an ebook or possibly even something physical they promise to post. Whatever it might be, it is a certain way for the website/blog owner to be able to contact you again. This they will do with offers of products for sale, invitations to webinars or sometimes offering more FREE products. You are now on their list.


Another way to get traffic is by writing articles. These can be posted directly to your website or blog or can alternatively be submitted to an article directory. With some great writing and interesting content your article might even be noticed by Google. By this time a number of people will have viewed your writing and if you include your website or blog details they will then be able to go back to your original website and will then hopefully purchase whatever it might be that you are selling. Clearly there is so very much more to becoming an internet marketer but this gives you a simple overview of what can be involved. Don't be put off giving it a go because it can be both fun and extremely profitable.
