Internet marketing is a broad term for many activities and ways of making money on-line.
The above question is being asked by a growing band of people looking for ways to get out of the rat race or supplement their incomes, but where do you start.
1 Internet marketing, could this boost your income? How safe is your J O B (just over broke)
2 With the current uncertainties is now a good time to consider how else you can make money, could you make money online?
3 Could you start, building a website and work online from home, whilst you have a job elsewhere?
4 Where would you begin, what would it cost and how do you build a website?
5 How do you prevent information overload?
Do YOU have the Right Mindset?
This can be a whole new way of life, it can be lonely, no more chatting to colleagues at work. But also, it means no more commuting on cold wet mornings. Are you motivated enough when things aren’t working, to continue trying? Do you need the security of a regular income? Are you good at making decisions? Would you enjoy learning new skills? This can be both challenging and frustrating but very enjoyable, if you like learning new things.
Eventually it could bring you flexibility and time with the family, but this will not happen overnight, It is not a quick solution to debt problems, but a slow and steady learning curve. However it may be a good way of subsidizing your income in the early stages depending on the time and effort you put in. Maybe you should consider it as a new hobby until you are established and can give up your job.
Writing YOUR Goals Down
It is important to write your goals down, so that you are clear in your mind where you are heading, it will help keep you on track. It gives you a means of monitoring your progress and letting you see if you are achieving you goals. Or where you need to allow more time. Break your overall plan into bite size weekly or daily targets. Plan how long each day you can set aside to build your new business, especially if you are also working. An Hour a day plus maybe more at weekends,will keep you motivated better, than just long stretches at weekends.
Finding some good Forums according to your chosen niche will help to give you a sense of belonging. Google or other search engines will help you locate them, you will then need to take a close look to see which ones feel right for you..
I floundered around for a number of years, dabbling with the internet, trying different things and suffering “information overload”, until I discovered a good mentor, a good membership site and decided on a direction. This will save you so much time, effort and frustration. This was crucial to my progress and gave me the sense of belonging to a community of like-minded people, help, support, and a direction.
There are many membership sites available, and should be chosen according to your existing knowledge, ability, confidence, learning style and if possible recommendations. Some offer trial membership, forums, free hosting, how to videos, and lots of advice.
Affiliate Marketing is a Good Starting Point
Affiliate marketing saves you sourcing a product, you only need to find a niche that interests you. Good programs offer help such as banners for your website, maybe emails to send to your list. This saves you needing too much initial knowledge, you may also find some support and initial help. You could take a look at Click-bank for some ideas. Or check out Google. But be prepared for information overload!! Once again recommendation can be helpful.
How do I get Website
The first thing you will need is a website and although you can get professional help with this it is a good idea to learn the basic skills, even if eventually you have this done for you. You will need to understand how it works etc. You may even find this an exciting skill you love learning. I found www.weebly.com a very user friendly provider, offering free hosting, free tutorials, free support. A bargain for a beginner you website can be upgraded to .com etc later.
Word press is now a popular way to build a website and this method may appeal to you. Try searching on the web for instructions, or once again try www.weebly.com. Internet Marketing can make you money if you are prepared to give it time and effort.
Besides your website there will be many new things to learn, you should embrace this and enjoy the challenges. It is fun to learn new skills, and certainly exercises the grey cells, It is one business that can be started on a shoestring. Age or gender, need not be a barrier, my youngsters have families of their own now which leaves me free to concentrate on my new career.
