Internet Marketing Basics

Introduction

Welcome to the Basics of Internet Marketing

There are some basic things you will need to know before getting started, and it is my intention is to aid you in your Internet Marketing venture by starting with some of the basic tools. 

My goal is not to sell you anything, but I will recommend some things along the way, also give you some free tools and tips to help you learn the Internet Marketing Basics. 

How I got Started in Internet Marketing

First, a little about myself, and don't worry, I am not going into some long boring story, and this does have a point, because this is your first tip from me. 

It is advised that when it comes to marketing, you will want to refrain from talking too much about yourself. Really, nobody cares, and unless it is relevant to your experiences within the topic, it will just bore them.

With that said, here are just a few relevant facts to give you some idea as to where I am coming from. 

I spent 25 years working in the Home Improvement business, and had no clue how to use a computer, or the Internet. I had no time, or use, for it. Simply put, I lacked the information and technology to start an Internet Marketing Business. 
Learning basic computer and Internet skills was crucial in my situation, because even if I had stayed in the H.I. bus. times were changing, and I had to also. 

My writing, communication, and sales abilities were pretty good, but fine tuning them did not hurt. Bottom line is, you never stop learning. Consider that your 2nd Internet Marketing Tip.


Internet Marketing Tips

Now, enough about me, I would like to start things off by giving some advice on Internet Marketing Basics. Things most people will not tell you because they want you to buy their program.
1)  The “Secret” to Internet Riches – Here’s the “Secret” are you ready? THERE IS NO SECRET!! The real secret is knowledge and hard work, point blank, there it is. If you are looking for an easy way to riches, this is not for you, unless you can afford to have someone do it for you. Part of what I do now is consulting.
     There is no “Three Clicks to Success”, “If You Can Send an E-Mail, You Can Do This”, or any other easy click, copy and paste method to getting rich on the Internet. Even a simple marketing system takes work.

I could go on and on about this, but I am simply not going to waste your time. Don't believe all the that hype, because the only one getting rich will be them. You may also be getting involved in something that will put a black mark on your Internet reputation, and it will affect your Internet presence in a negative way.
     Please do not get me wrong, there are some good tools out there, and I have a lot of free tools, videos, and information on this blog. 
2)  Figure out what it is you want to do. There are several ways to make money on the Internet. Find out what it is you want to do and concentrate solely on that project. If you do not, you will be just spinning your wheels.
     My suggestion is take out a piece of paper and write down your goals and objectives. Then work backwards. What are your interests? What are your passions? What do you want to accomplish? If you are just interested in making money, affiliate marketing is probably for you. This blog is mainly geared toward affiliate and direct marketing.
3)   One of the first things you will want to do is open up a special business email account for your Internet Marketing business. Some people guard their email address like it's their phone number or street address. I can understand that in a way that you don't want a bunch of spam in your inbox, but if you are going to take on an Internet Marketing venture or any other Internet based venture, you might as well get used to it. I currently have 9 different boxes. Each one serves a different purpose. This enables me to keep my emails sorted by category. Email boxes are free, why not utilize them? You will want to familiarize yourself with some of the tools available to you with the inbox.
      Have you ever wanted to get some "free" information on something and they required you to give your email address to get it? I'm sure you have. Everybody on the Internet is trying to build a mailing list, and if you are getting into Internet Marketing, you will too. It's just part of the Internet Marketing business. Any successful marketer will tell you "the money is in the list."

 Here's another Internet Marketing Basics tip; according to psychographic studies, G Mail is the most professionally accepted. It is also more acceptable to Internet Marketing. You will also need a G mail account in order to set up a blogger blog. Why use blogger? It is owned by Google, you do the math.  You can get your G mail account here.
      When choosing a user name for your business inbox, you will want to chose something simple and not silly. You want your web presence to be professional. I started out with my 3 initials and birth year. This ultimately became my pen name and I eventually integrated it with a business name.
              

    Four Steps to Affiliate Marketing Success;

1.      Create a product or plan (Affiliates chose a niche)
2.      Build a website or blog (Can be a free blog, or affiliate site)
3.      Drive targeted converting traffic to it for sales (this can cost you)
4.      Repeat process


    Sound easy? Yeah right, this is the part that determines if you have what it takes to succeed, and I am not talking exclusivly about money.


      I explain more about this prosess in the Codex of Money Ebook. It is very possible to get started with very little money.



     You must have your own personal drive and will to succeed. I have had many overtime days on the computer.
