Internet Marketing Requires Knowledge Of The Internet…. Resulting In Desktop-Wealth!

Internet Marketing Resources for Offline and Online Marketing

Internet Marketing Information

understanding wordpress gives you a lot of flexiblity for your websitesWith so many people losing their homes and jobs there is a virtual stampede to the internet and all the riches it has to offer. The only problem with that is the riches are there but they are buried. In order to know where to find them and how best to mine them you need the most up to date internet marketing information you can find.

Too many people fall for the hype online. You know what I’m talking about. The “3 clicks to riches” type of product. The promise that you can become incredibly wealthy with no work and in very little time. That’s hype.

You can become very wealthy online. As a matter of fact I heard recently that there are more new millionaires made online today than in any other industry. It is possible but only after you have sound internet marketing information and training.

To maximize your chances of success online in the shortest amount of time, follow these simple tips:

1. Do not expect something for nothing. It will take time and hard work to build your online business. It is true that building a business online is much quicker, cheaper and easier than offline but that does not mean it will be a walk in the park.

2. Do not buy one “sure thing” system after another. There are many, many ways to make money online. Find one system that you like and copy it. Keep at it until you have perfected it and are making money. Then, if you want, you can expand out but learn one thing inside and out first.

3. Do not think you can do it all with no training. Be willing to spend time, and possibly money, to have someone teach you the basic skills you need. Once you’ve got the basics down you can learn more advanced techniques. The good thing is that even with just knowledge of basic skills you should be able to be making some money online.

From that point you can expand your knowledge and your business and start making even more money if you choose. It’s up to you. But you must learn to walk before you can run.

4. Do not listen if someone tells you that you don’t need your own website, you do. Think of it like this, if you were building a store offline would you just go put it up on someone elses land? No.

Online real estate is getting more valuable all the time. When you get your own domain name and hosting account, you then own that piece of internet real estate.

And don’t fall for the “I’ll build your site for you” garbage. Today most internet marketers put up WordPress blog style sites which an absolute beginner can probably do themselves in about 30 minutes their first time.

It’s easy, you can do it yourself don’t let anyone try to scam you into paying them to do it for you.

I’ve been making money online for several years now and one thing I can’t stand is to see beginners getting taken advantage of. If you follow this internet marketing information you should be just fine. Most importantly remember to keep at it…. you’ll have failures and successes but there’s nothing like making your first dollar online!

Beware of Internet Marketing Guru’s

This post is for anyone interested in making money online, in specific, I’m talking about the practice called “Internet Marketing”.

First, let me tell you a little about myself.

I stumbled online due to illness. I learned how to build websites, write ebooks, sell ebooks, build blogs, develop traffic, do keyword research, niche research and all the other basics involved in internet marketing… or simply selling things online.

I don’t remember when I first started but it was someplace in the late 1990’s. I actually started by getting involved in a couple of internet based multi level marketing type companies. None of which worked and were nothing more than an expensive education. However, I became fascinated in the process of using the internet to develop a full time income. After having a brick and mortar company with a $50,000 a month overhead…. it was exciting to see that it might be possible to make a living with no employees and no overhead costs.

I soon found that it doesn’t matter what you want to sell or what service you want to provide. You can build a website, blog and forum around your favorite topic….but….and this is a BIG BUT, if there isn’t a hungry ravenous crowd with disposable income interested in what you have to sell….. well, let’s just say you will go broke.

First rule then is to learn how to find a niche market where there is an exciting interest and buyers with a disposable income. Then all you do is create a product such as an ebook that solves their problem and sell it to them. NicheProfitClassrooms is a membership site that shows you exactly how to do this… I highly recommend this membership….. stick with it and study it hard for about a year and you’ll learn more basics about internet marketing than any other way.

It is possible to make a good living online. Once you learn the mechanics of building websites, creating graphics, working with autoresponders amongst other procedures, you can take these new talents and offer your services to the offline world. That is, those business owners with local stores, businesses and offices. Teach these people how to get more control over their clients by building a list with your autoresponder. Help people searching for their store and services by optimizing their websites for the proper keywords.

Offline marketing can be a business in and of itself!

So….my point is, you really can make money online. There are things you need to learn first! Some will learn on their own by reading and joining other marketers list ….and some will get coaching for a more personal approach.

Once you start to get involved in internet marketing, you will be tempted to join many lists. These people will bribe you by giving free stuff. Stuff that sounds important will be offered if you join their list. Before you know it you have joined 35, 35 or maybe 50 lists from different “experienced” marketers.

Now…all these guys are going to portray themselves as experts or “gurus”. They are the ones you should listen to and you should buy all the products, books, services and anything else they recommend if you want to become successful online.

Its been my experience that most of these marketers are not really here to show you how to make money online, but to show you how they can take your money right from your wallet or credit card!

There’s nothing wrong with a genuine email that suggests you buy product A because it will help you learn how to drive traffic to your website. However, if that same email owner sends 3 or 5 emails a week telling you that you need to buy this product or the next product….understand, they are doing this simply for the affiliate income generated by your sale.

So, if you want to learn internet marketing you will have to develop a sense of discernment regarding the material you are reading and who it is that the material comes from. Spend some time on some of the internet marketing forums such as the Warrior Forum or Earn1KaDay and ask questions, see who the leaders are and ask someone in the forum if they know the guy you are interested in.

With today’s economy there are many people interested in making money online.Keep in mind, it is possible and it is fun, but it will take some studying, work and a little bit or luck.

One more thing.

As you sign onto other marketers email lists, you will begin to get emails telling you about the newest, latest and greatest XYZ and you need this to make better websites because Guru Joe Blow is now making 6 figures with this system. Hurry though because Joe Blow is only going to let 1000 of these out…..so buy now!

I get so sick of this BS.

Always remember this.

If Super Guru Internet Marketer has a new Widget that can make 1000’s of dollars online overnight. And…its easy to use And he is only going to let a few out …..If this thing is so successful do you really think he is going to sell it to the public?

I know I wouldn’t and I bet you wouldn’t give away the golden goose either.

What ever he is selling may have worked one day and the guru might have made a ton of money with it….problem is the technique is no longer new and no longer works like when it was new…. in other words, he is done with it and wants to sell it to you.

The above couple of paragraphs is just one model designed to extract you from your money. So…buyer beware!

Remember, I’m not saying don’t buy anything.

All I’m trying to convey to you is to be aware of all the hype and the expensive products that are flying around…..chances are they are over hyped and over priced.

Look for good solid information. Be comfortable enough in a good forum so you can ask about “Dr. Guru’s” latest and greatest traffic generation product.,.. or whatever :)

Don’t be afraid to spend money on the good stuff. Most courses have 39, 60, or 80 day warranties….so you should be pretty safe.

Most importantly is to do something with the knowledge you began to gain. That means start wrting that ebook and building that website!

Choosing Your Target Market

make money onlineWho is your target market?

It is vital in Internet Marketing to have a target market that will allow you to market the products you are promoting much easier. There is no point promoting a product that people don’t want, you need to promote a product to people that are actually in the market for that product.  If you don’t have a target market then you are just wasting money by promoting a product to people that just aren’t going to buy.  To find a target marketing you need to identify a need within a niche and then find out if it will be profitable.  Let’s take a look at how to find your target market.

Finding a Need

The stronger the need for something is the more profitable a product will be in that niche.  If people are looking for a solution then they have a strong need for that solution and they are likely to spend money on finding that solution.

For example, if you had two products:  How to get your ex back or How to apply makeup – which product do you think would sell better?  The ‘how to get your ex back’ product has a high ‘need’ as when people break up the need to get back together is quite high.  The ‘how to apply makeup’ product might sell to a certain degree, but the need for that product isn’t as strong.

When looking for a ‘need’ the stronger the need for a solution, the more sales your product will get, so try to find a niche where people have a strong need.

Finding a Pre-Existing Market

You can try to sell a product in a completely new market, but it is taking a big gamble.  For example, if you come up with this great product about teaching your dog to walk on two legs, do you think there would be much demand for this product?  It is possible you could come up with a new market and it could be really successful if the demand is there for it, but often there is no demand.

So it is a good idea to find a pre-existing market where you know there is demand and where products already sell well and then find an untapped area within that market.

What Makes a Good Target market?

A good target market would be one in which you could sell multiple products to customers.  If you are selling a one off product then you can make money with this but the income you make is limited.  If you can sell repeatedly to customers then your income potential is much higher.

Your target market wants to be a market where people are ready to buy.  If you are targeting the ‘how to apply makeup’ market the chances are that people are looking for free information and not ready to buy a product.  However, if you are targeting the ‘how to get your ex back’ market, people are desperate for this information and are ready to buy.

Your target will want some competitors as if there are no competitors then there is a good chance that there is no demand for that market and people have tried this market and failed.  If there are competitors in the market then you know that this is a market that does convert and people are making money from this market.

These three points will find a good market and if you can find a need, find a pre-existing market then you are off to a good start.  Doing your market research carefully before you begin your online business will give you a much greater chance of success.

How to Make 5 Bucks a Day

Here ya go… want to make a quick 5 bucks! You could probably make yourself an easy 5 bucks a day, all you have to do is model the guy in the video! This guy just wanted to make a quick 5 Bucks….its pretty funny but you should watch it. Afterwards I can open some doors that will show you how to make an income online that are a lot less painful :)

Did you know you can make money online! It’s really true, you can set up your own online business and start making money at home.

Here’s the truth….

Don’t believe those offers where someone tells you that you can start making $5000 a month at home…..just buy my course or invest in my videos. That’s a bunch of hogwash!

Start off by learning the basics of internet marketing. Approach the subject of making money online in baby steps.

Think of it this way. If you can learn how to make 5 bucks a day then you can learn to make 10 dollars a day. If you can make 10 dollars a day you can make $50 a day. Are you starting to get the idea. If you can make $50 a day you can learn how to make $100 a day ….at home, on the internet on your computer.

It makes sense to figure out how to make a small amount of money online  and then scale upwards. Sure some internet gurus start off by making $1000’s in a matter of days……but I can assure you there are many more of us that start off by making $5 bucks a day and then just continue to learn internet marketing and multiply our efforts.

Making 5 bucks a day is a lot easier than the guy in the video getting tasered for 5 bucks. It’s kind of funny but at the same time those guys reveal the mentality of the masses……YOU don’t have to get tasered to start making money at home!

In fact, there’s a guy, Dennis Becker, who teaches people how to start making money online and he has a book called Make 5 bucks a Day. Dennis also started a membership that teaches people how to make money online and its called Earn1KaDay….. I highly recommend it if you’re interested learning a variety of different business models for making money online.

Internet Marketing tips to make money onlineDo yourself a favor and fill in the below form and I’ll send you a book written by Dennis that talks about the different ways to make money online. The book is free and will give you some options for starting a career in internet marketing. Fill out the form and I’ll send it to you. Making money online is fun, its hard work, its interesting but you, maybe for the first time in your life will be in control of your destiny!

Earn More Money with Internet Marketing

Internet Marketing tips to make money onlineIf you want to earn more money you will probably be like  most people and think about turning to the internet to find some way to make money.  That’s a good choice too. There are a lot of ways of making some extra money online and most of them don’t take much time or money to get started.

You can choose to make a few hundred dollars online or make enough to permanently quit your day job but if you want something more long term you’ll want to start an online business. There are several types of businesses you can start but an affiliate marketing business is a great choice for many reasons.

For one thing you won’t need very much money to start. Since your main job is to drive traffic to the website you were given when you signed up (for free) to become an affiliate, and there are some very inexpensive ways to do that, it’s cheap to get started. You don’t have to maintain inventory or worry about customer service, that is all handled by the affiliate company you sign up with.

There are many affiliates who make more in a week than most people make in a month, and that is well within your reach, as long as you’re willing to invest the time to learn how it all goes together.

You see, one big downside of the internet is that there is a ton of hype. You have to constantly be on the lookout to not get sucked into this hype. If you do you’ll expect to be making a lot of money in very little time and with very little effort. When one thing doesn’t work you’ll just skip to something else, over and over again and you’ll never make any money online.

Another thing is to not get too caught up in the online forums. No matter what type of product or service you choose to build your business around there is bound to be an online forum related to that topic.

Spending time there can be very helpful in many ways but if you go overboard you also run the risk of wasting a lot of time or falling victim to the negative people you will come into contact with there. Use your forum time sparingly.

You won’t need much money to get started with building an online business but you will need some. You should start by getting some education. There are many great courses that can show you how to learn the skills of making money online. Find one and learn all the skills you need to learn than put those skills into practice on a consistent basis and you can make as much money online as you want.

If you go about it the right way you can do way more than just make some extra money online, you can completely change your financial life. If you’re currently working at a job that you don’t love and don’t even make very much money at, you can make more money and have more fun with an online business.

So if you want to earn more money or if you want to build a huge ongoing income, the internet is a great place to find your niche and build an extremely profitable business.

Installing Kompozer and Niche Profit Classroom

Building a website can be a daunting experience if you are a newbie. In fact, just downloading and installing the software can be an overpowering experience! That’s why I created this how to video on how to download and install Kompozer.

Like all things, once you’re become proficient at something you forget how it was when you first started. So…..I thought I’d do some newbie videos to help those of us who need a little clarification when starting out. One problem with youtube videos is that you can’t see them. Well….not my videos because I’ll take the time to zoom in when needed so you can see what I’m talking about. Also don’t forget to try clicking on the lower right “arrows” which expand the video to full screen! See image below

how to expand youtube video to full screen

Anyway, the video below will show you how to download and install Kompozer on your desktop. It’s really very simple, in fact if you search Google looking for instructions on how to install Komopozer you will become very confused. This exact think happened to a student of mine and this video allowed her to confidently use Kompozer.

There are several pages in the sites of Niche Profit Classroom that need to be edited by a html editor. They suggest using the wysiwyg editor in cpanel. This can be a little confusing and difficult to use. Using an editor such as Kompozer to edit your Niche Profit Classroom pages will give you more control confidence. After editing simply upload your files via Filezilla.

Niche Profit Classroom is a great membership that teaches newbies and old hats alike how to research a niche and how to create a product, then create a website for that product using a proprietary wordpress theme for the maximum amount of traffic. There really isn’t any stone left unturned at the Niche Profit Classroom Site and I highly recommend it. If you’re struggling to make money online, please do yourself a favor and check out NPC.

If you are a bit fearful about installing and using composer, please watch this video and let me know if you have any questions.

Offer Value To Improve Internet Marketing Strategy

Free ebook Make 5 Bucks a Day!Have you thought of a way to improve Internet marketing strategy in your business? Is your current method not getting you far enough? Do you struggle to reach the next level? If you value your customers, you will have found the best way to improve Internet marketing strategy.

Many marketers look at their customers as a “mark.” If they purchase snake oil from you and dislike it, there are plenty of other fish in the ocean. You need a different mindset if you wish to improve Internet marketing strategy. A good customer relationship is a very valuable commodity. However, there are two parts to this. It is more expensive to acquire new customers than it is to keep the happy ones. If you have sold a product or service previously and acquired a happy customer as a result they are much more likely to buy from you again. For this reason it is vital to develop and maintain a customer list. If you have provided value to your customer, you will be able to approach them with more product offers.

A customer will buy from those that they trust. It does not matter whether you are selling your own products or affiliate products. If you sell affiliate products and your customers trust your recommendation they are apt to buy using your affiliate links. Some examples, are travel books or guides. Hotels strive for a “5 star” rating because they know with that rating business will increase. An affiliate program works in much the same way. When you recommend them to your customers, it will increase their business. This is just as true, if you are selling your own product.

When you sell an initial product to a customer and they like it,there is a greater chance that they will purchase similar products in the future from you. Bring potential customers into your product funnel. You should have a plan in place to present an upsell and down sell for each product that you will sell. You should look at methods to repackage products so that they will be value packed. As an example, you could produce an audio book from an ebook and sell it all over again. Or you could package several small reports into a larger package. You will improve Internet marketing strategy, if you provide value for your customers.

A famous quote from P.T. Barnum is “there is a fool born every minute.” However, there is no proof that he actually said it. When Joe Vitale wrote the biography of Barnum, he named it “There’s a Customer Born Every Minute.” This is the correct mindset to have if you wish to improve Internet marketing strategy. It will be easy to develop lasting relationships, if you view the people on your list and those that visit your website as customers.

One of the best ways  to learn how to become a more effective internet marketer is by learning from others who have achieved success. Earn1KaDay is a forum that offers newbies and the experienced marketer advice and guidance for developing a successful internet marketing business.

Treat them incorrectly and they will never buy from you again. When you treat people as if they were a “mark,” it spoils the online buying experience.It tends to drive people to larger chain stores instead of a smaller distributor who may be able to offer better value. Do not fall into the trap of being the “fool.” See your customers as valuable and treat them like gold-because they are in many ways. That is the best way to improve Internet marketing strategy.

Don’t Believe Everything You See

A lot of the so- called internet marketing gurus are full of fluff. An internet marketing tip from many of them is not worth much at all. Remember, most of the make money online websites are geared towards newbies who are unfamiliar with the internet and how it works. In addition, if some of these types of gurus were given a truth serum, you would find out that many of them aren’t making much money themselves.

Fortunately, there are many credible webmasters. It is your job to find the ones that are reliable. Carefully pick the gurus that you choose as role models. Not every internet marketing tip is a winner.

Don’t Become Overwhelmed

The internet has a lot of information for one person to digest. Web pages have links that can lead to other places of interest. Before you know it, you can drift off topic and land on web pages that are not related to your original searches for information. Don’t let all of this new information overwhelm you. Don’t get sidetracked. Learn how to focus.

Perfect It and Stick With It

Learn as much as you can on about internet marketing, but don’t try to do everything that you learn at one time. This is another internet marketing tip that you should take to heart. There are many different ways of doing things on the internet. Different gurus have different ways of doing many different things.

If you want to follow the system of one particular guru, then follow that system to the letter. Don’t practice those steps and then two weeks later jump to another guru’s system. Figure out how to make that particular system work for you before you go to another one.

Don’t Give Up

You are not going to find the perfect internet marketing tip. Don’t jump from one internet marketing system to another just because you did not make sales in a short period of time. You must be willing to put in the hard work that is required to make your internet marketing campaign successful. Persistent pays when it comes to internet marketing.

Internet marketing requires persistence, hard work and patience. You won’t become rich in the very beginning, but you have the potential to do so in the very near future. Finding an internet marketing tip or two can help you to find online success.

NanoBloggers

PC075482

I stumbled on a blog post about a new book called Nanobloggers.

Turns out to be a no no-nonsense approach to developing an online income by developing a niche markets using blogs. Not a novel concept in and of itself, however, it is a recipe type book, spelling out the steps needed to develop your niche and turn it into a money maker.

The concepts are appropiate for someone either new or interested in finally making money online. No hype but good solid teaching.

I’ve seen many comments on the book, almost all of them good!

Here’s a few comments I stumbled on while searching online for more information about Nanobloggers:

This is a great book. I’m only on page 26 / 105 and i’ve found the ebook more interesting and useful than any other book ive read. The resources and links alone are worth the price of this ebook.

Hey, this is good stuff. Ignore the intro chapter and get into the meat of this.

Basically all about adding the personal touch to blogging to gain the trust of readers and use the power of blogs as natural SEO.

Funnily enough I’ve just spent the past week working on a couple of blogs mirrored by this method. Nice to add some more info to what I’ve already discovered, thanks.

I really like the product. It’s a very simple and elegant system for blogging. The system requires some work but the philosophy behind is much more in tune with the core strengths of the Internet itself.

For some people like me the beauty of the system clearly shines through. But I can tell others are going to question certain aspects of the system because its different than what most of us are use to. There are no keyword tools used, no seo, and you have to be willing to interact within your niches community on a basic level.

It’s also not a set it and forget it type system. You have to put in some work every day. At least 20-30 minutes per blog it seems.

If what I just wrote turns you off, honestly don’t let it. Peter does a fantastic job explaining and supporting the “why” of the nanoblogging philosophy which makes a TON of sense. It’s just different than what were use to from a Internet marketing course.

If your looking to pick it up Andre Chaperon offers a bonus interview with Peter. I’m considering putting together a bonus my self as I have taken some notes and put together a mind map but I’m not sure if I want to share them with others yet.

You can find more reviews and comments over at the warrior forum, here’s the forum post for Nanobloggers.

Peter, the author of Nanobloggers has decided to donate his income from this book to help finance a Dog Shelter….a very admirable cause, here’s a blurb from his salespage. For what it’s worth, Peter seems to be stand up guy with a great product for anyone looking to do a little work and develop a  real online business. He gets high praise from John Jonas….a pretty no-nonsense guy and seems to be a square shooter. In any case, it is a clickbank purchase so you’re investment is guaranteed for 90 days……go for it!

It’s been two years since I have done this little Blogging to Sell coaching club. I haven’t released any new materials since then. I practice what I teach. Every day, I’m in the trenches, working hard – I’m not a guru. (and I have zero intention of becoming one)

Thing is tho – I have a lot to share.

I test like a maniac – there’s not much I haven’t done online where traffic and conversion strategies are concerned.

You can ask my friends – you know who they are…

Marketing is my passion – I can yap for hours on end about marketing. I’m an addict.

But …

There’s one thing that I’m even more passionate about. Dogs.

I’m a big dog friend and I co-operate my local dog shelter. A dog shelter is a massive money pit. (lots of costs but very little income)

Each month I donate about $5K of my own money to keep the shelter “alive”.

We need (lots of) dog food and pet medicine, there are veterinary bills we need to pay.

The list goes on and on –  it never stops.

New puppies are droppped on our doorstep almost daily. We take good care of all of them.

We give them a good life.

I developed a complex marketing plan for the shelter – I know it will work.

I need the shelter to become self-funding.

Therefore – to fund this marketing plan, I decided to release a working business model to you guys.

I will put every single red penny I make from nanobloggers into the dog shelter – I will not pocket any of the money myself.

Nanobloggers works – it can change your life like it did for the people in my Golden Six” group.

I need you to succeed – you can do it, it’s not hard.

Here’s what you will be getting when you make the super smart decision to get nanobloggers today:

  • The nanobloggers manual (little over 100 pages)
  • The nanobloggers mindmap
  • A custom file to help you set up your nanobloggers.
  • In 2 weeks you’ll receive my blueprint for outsourcing (in co-op with John Jonas)
  • In 4 weeks you’ll receive a full case study of a working, real life nanobloggers project.
  • Access to a dedicated nanobloggers news blog (just for you, my “incrowd”), where I will be releasing updates to nanobloggers, marketing tips and tricks and insights on new workflows.

My Blogging to Sell group paid me $400/month – I’m not going to charge you this much. Price is under 100 dollars!
