What is Internet Marketing?
Internet marketing is a form of marketing online. Millions of people are resorting online to make money. To learn internet marketing will be like learning a trade. There is a lot to it!
You have to learn about search engine optimization. This is the art of getting ranked online. You would think that it is a no-brainer and that you just have to build it and they will come; but that’s not the case! Aside from building a website and designing it, you need to learn seo. SEO will allow you to be on the first page of any major search engine such as Google and expose you to loads of traffic.
What Does an Internet Marketing Business Look Like?
An internet marketing business can be acheived in a couple of different ways. You can build a website or blog and monetize it with ads, such as with Google Adsense. This is where Google places ads on your website in real time suited for the visitor on your page. For example, if someone had recently been looking through amazon for a new iphone, then Google may place ads about iphones on the page.
The other way is monetizing your website with affiliate programs. An affiliate program will pay you commission for helping their company generate sales. For example, Amazon has a well known affiliate program. As you know, Amazon is the #1 marketplace online. If or when you promote products that lead others to purchase on Amazon, you will earn commission once the transaction is complete. Pretty cool for not needing an inventory or owning your own product right?
I wrote a pretty interesting blog to show you a closer look at how affiliate marketing works. These are two ways that you can make money online. Google Adsense and affiliate marketing. I’ve heard of people making $10,000s from Adsense. How it works is Google pays you every time someone clicks on their ad. The trick is to get so good at SEO and/or PPC that you get tons of traffic driven to your website, exposing more and more people to your promotions.
There are other ways that you can make money online with internet marketing. A couple of other ways are creating and promoting your own product and or optimizing a website that is affiliated with your own small business offline. These are both pretty much self-explanatory however I’ll go ahead and explain them briefly.
Creating your own product can be anything. It can be creating your own shaving cream, creating your own technological product, or even creating your own clothes! Basically it is your own product, you are the manufacturer. To sell these products you can build your own website and promote them by getting organic traffic via SEO and/or PPC.
Some people create a membership with Amazon to where they can get their products once manufactured shipped directly to Amazon’s warehouse and Amazon does the distributing. Just another way for you to be hands off! I’ve found the more autopilot that you can make a business the better!
Many small business owners are putting their businesses online to assist them with driving traffic to their business in their local community. Not only is it beneficial for the local community but owners can design their website to assist with consumers online having their products shipped directly to their home. Also if you have a service-oriented business you can drive customers to your business by using an online form or providing your phone number so that they can reach you and do business. The trick to this method is applying SEO to your website.
How do You Get Into Internet Marketing?
It’s pretty easy to get into internet marketing it just involves a lot of training. You can search online for ways to learn but be sure to avoid scams. These are anything promising you to make money within a very short period of time. The truth about making money online is that it takes a lot of time to build your business. It is just that, a business, and nothing else.
There are products such as Affilorama, Wealthy Affiliate, or SBI that can help you with training. I believe the best way to getting trained is by utilizing one of these services because you would have to be really good at getting self-taught and spend countless amount of hours online to learn how to do internet marketing. My #1 choice and network that I’m currently a part of is called Wealthy Affiliate.
Where Can an Internet Marketing Business Take You?
An internet marketing business can be your vehicle to financial freedom. By building a traffic producing website you can build a lucrative online business. It takes time to elevate and get to that point. However when you get there, you will only need to work a few hours a day. Some successful internet marketers only work 2-3 hours a day and others take months off at a time. There’s so much potential to being financially free along with time freedom in this business.
What I mean by you will need to put in a lot of time to elevate your business, is that internet marketing is not a push-button system. You will have to start from scratch and build a website. There is training out there to help you with this and it’s pretty basic stuff. if you know how to write an email then you can own your own online business.
My goal with internet marketing is to build multiple businesses that produce multiple streams of income passively. When I get to the point where I only have to spend 2-3 hours a day building my business then I will have much more time to spend with my family. That means taking trips, more outings, and much more experiences that I can create with them.
I know many internet marketers who are making up to $10,000 a month doing this business. I’ve also met a couple online who are making more than a million dollars a month. The potential is there, the training is there; so many people have made it already, you have just got to follow behind them. Create your own online business and make it strive.
How Does The Internet Marketing Business Work?
It’s a pretty simple method you build a website and optimize it using SEO tactics. While driving traffic to your website you place ads or join affiliate programs to monetize the website. Rinse and repeat. This is it, it’s really not rocket science. Once you’ve studied and understand the way to do this, you’re unstoppable!
Affiliate programs are free to join and so is Google AdSense. There really is no risk for you starting your own online business. There are even programs out there such as Wealthy Affiliate, training platforms, that require no initial investment to get started. The only thing in your way now is you. Oh and you also need a laptop and an internet connection. You get all of these things and you’re good to go.
Where Can You be in The Long Term in Internet Marketing?
I’ve discussed briefly where you can be in a long-term in this business. Allow me to touch on a few points that will help you further. As you know internet marketing is not a touch button system. With that said here are some realistic goals that you can set to plan your financial freedom and future:
- It takes up to 1 year until your online business is profitable. It could be sooner.
- Between 2-3 years you can expect to earn a full-time income with internet marketing.
- Between 3-5 years you should make more than a full-time income.
- Around 5-7 years you can expect to be financially free with internet marketing.
