Internet Marketing Plan

Many people get into the internet business to improve their finances and to enjoy personal growth through the knowledge that they gain. But whatever the reason there must be some kind of marketing plan. Without a plan there can be no success.

Firstly, you need to get a good education on internet marketing. That should be your first plan. If you do not get a good education about internet marketing you will give up because it is terribly hard - harder still if you do not know the ins and outs.

While you go about educating yourself you need to build a website. Before you do that you need to ask yourself what interest you. Build a website on something that is of interest to you. Then you have got to ask yourself who your customers might be. It is better to target a market that is huge. Akin to all this is the ever important keyword that you need to consider. If the market is too saturated it would be difficult for a beginner to get in. Ideally, the traffic should be over one hundred "exact" monthly searches and QSR should be under four hundred. The closer it is to zero would mean that there is fewer competition. You could use DMOZ to find niches.

Then you need to consider your budget and how much you need to spend on a monthly basis on your internet set-up. You would need a domain name and hosting for sure. You may also need some advertising. If you are going into advertising, you need to create your advertisement. Before you do this, you need to select your product. It is advisable to concentrate on one or at most two products per website.

If you do not wish to advertise then you should visit forums, Face book, twitter, and Pinterest. You need these social forums because they offer free advertisements for you. You also need to make your presence felt in the online world. You could do this by submitting articles relating to your product to Ezine. You need to get out and socialise. A quiet presence will impede your success.

One other thing that you should seriously consider is whether you wish to create your own product or become an affiliate and promote other people's products. Examples of advertisers are Commission Junction, Linkshare, Shareasale, Amazon Associates, Google, Ebay, Pepperjam, Affiliate Window, LinkConnector, TradeDoubler, Avangate, WebGains, AdCommunal, Zanox and Clickbank. They provide many different types of products that you could promote.

So as you can see there are a whole lot of advertisers. I must warn you though that Commission Junction deducts ten dollars from your account if you do not bring in any sale within an entire month. The rest are fine. It is good for you to go and take a good look at each one of them. Just pick one first and give it a bang.

Alternatively, could become a Virtual Assistant and work for online companies that need work to be done on their website. You could also write original articles. Companies like O'Desk require writers to write content for websites.
