How to Make Money Online and Start an Internet Marketing Business

So you have heard that starting an online business is an easy and quick way to making money. Well, I’m afraid to tell you that it isn’t a quick and easy way to make money. I don’t know anyone that magically started making money online overnight with no work.Stop worrying about making money online. Stop looking for the magic push button system that magically makes you rich overnight.I’m afraid to tell you that they simply do not exist. If you knew how to make money easily with a few clicks of your mouse would you be selling those secrets for a few bucks?The only way to build a successful online business is to have a clear purpose, what makes you different to your competition, what’s your Unique Selling Point?You need to deliver VALUE, but you need to deliver it differently to everyone else.What is your clear purpose?
What value can you deliver?
How are you different to everyone else?Are you prepared to do that for FREE to start with if needs be?At least until you have proof that your strategies work and what value you can provide.Before you start thinking I have nothing I could teach that would be of value to anyone else, you are wrong.Everyone has something of value. Do you know how to knit, scrapbook, play golf or computer games all of which are very popular, very profitable niches. I discovered a very profitable niche the other day, how to clean and de-clutter your home.Once you have something of value and you have proved that your strategies work, then you can start thinking about charging for that information. But start small; start off by charging a lot less than the value you are going to deliver.Think of any internet marketing millionaires and every one of those started in this way.They found a way of making money online. They actually made the money first over a period of time. Then and only then did they offer to teach others how they made that money online.The first thing you need to learn is that if you try to make money online then you will fail. If you start by giving value in exchange for money then you will start seeing a return on your time investment.So where do you start?I am sure you have heard things like:
The money is in the list.
It’s easier to be an affiliate then a product creator.
You can’t create a product if you’re not an expert.Well.The money is in the list. That is definitely true. But not all lists are created equal.Now once you have worked out that people invest in results you can start to build a buyers list, someone who has actually taken their credit card out and spent some money in order to get access to your knowledge. But, I am sure if you do not class yourself as an expert then you is probably very nervous about creating your own product?Let me tell you something about product creation.No one really talks about this even though it’s very important when it comes to your long term wealth and stabilising your income.You see the only good thing about a J.O.B. is you get a regular pay check come rain or shine.Every month you get paid without fail.It isn’t the same in business. Your money goes up, and your money goes down. Every month, your income fluctuates. So to stabilise your income as much as possible you need to build a buyers list. Why, because a buyers list is you repeat business. The customers that come back and continue to buy from you. This of course only works If and only if you have over delivered the value in the first place. Would you buy more information from somebody who had already over promised and under delivered?The other point of course is a buyer is worth ten times more to you then a freebie seeker.This is why I want you to become or at least consider being a product creator.Think about this…How many lists are you on where you get hit with pitch after pitch, after pitch selling yet another affiliate product?Lots, right?Yeah well, guess what’s happening to their list?It’s getting bored, fed-up and diluted.Think about it.Every time you sell someone else’s stuff you’re going to lose subscribers.Sure some will buy the product (and you get a commission) but they will also sign up to the product owners list. If they like the information they have bought, then they will start to follow and receive emails from the product creator. What do they need you for now?I know this because I’ve done this.But here’s the deal.Now there is competition in the inbox.They get your email and this other guy’s email.Say they read yours. You send another email pitch and guess what…… They join someone else’s list.Your open-rates decline, your emails get read less and less and eventually you become just another email in the spam folder.Sell your own stuff (and you can still send the occasional affiliate promotion) and you’ll deepen the relationship with your list.They’ll get to know you so much better and like your stuff more.Then you can get affiliates to send you traffic and dilute their list instead of yours.So it’s a very good idea to create your own products to stabilise your income online, by building a buyers/repeat customer list. You also utilise other people’s lists by getting affiliates to promote your products for a percentage of the sales revenue. So effectively building your very lucrative repeat customer list for free.

5 Best Practices For Making Money Online – Do These Properly And You Will See Success

Making money online is not easy, it requires a lot of work and time. In order to make a great income you need patience and more importantly to achieve things properly. Let’s look at some things you can do to make money online successfully.Number 1 – Add ValueMany people online try to make money without providing value. They will quickly realise that their business won’t last long. I always add value first when thinking about creating a website or setting up an advertising campaign. The money is just a bonus, my first important priority is to add value.I am very surprised at how many people online miss this important step. First impressions are everything and you should provide value and a good foundation right from the start.Number 2 – Being UniqueA big part of successful online businesses is their ability to be different and unique. Copying other people isn’t the right thing to do. Creating unique content and campaigns is a must, if you are looking to make money online.It is all too easy to be lazy and copy someone else’s ad campaign or website blog post. Unfortunately, I see this a lot online and then people wander why they don’t make an income.Number 3 – Invest In ToolsA lot of people are scared to invest in business tools to make money online. If your serious about making an income, there will be a time when tools of the trade are needed. You might need to buy a premium WordPress theme to enhance your website or a keyword tool.Sometimes the initial investment can be quite large, but smart marketers and online entrepreneur’s understand the value of their tools and resources.Number 4 – Understanding Customer NeedsPeople online are always searching for products or items, but are they really buying products? Well, they are not buying products, they are buying outcomes. They will still buy the latest diet pill, but they will buy it to lose weight… not just eat a pill.Understanding customer emotions is very important and it’s a big part of making money online.Number 5 – Being ConsistentWith anything in life it is very important to be consistent and the same applies when doing business. One of the most important tips I can give you is to be consistent. You will find it easier to be consistent when you have a plan.For example if you have a blog, then post consistently, build links slowly and you will see results. This is a big thing online, so make sure you do this!
