I have been talking a while about internet marketing and how to make money online. One of the questions I get is can I do this too? Who is internet marketing for? The answer is it is for anyone who wants to make some money online. In other words, anyone from college students, to homemakers, to moms and dads, it really doesn’t matter who you are you can become an internet marketer. As long as you have an internet connection a computer and some time that you can actually work on your website, then you can become an internet marketer.
Why use internet marketing
Internet marketing is one of the easiest ways to get started making money online. As I stated above that you only need a few tools at your disposal and you can get started. You will not get rich overnight. It is a process and it really does take some time and effort. But it really is straight forward.
Internet marketing is the use of the internet to market your product or other people’s products. There are many ways to do this from building a website and videos with ads on them as well as pay per click advertising. When I first started I wanted to spend the least amount of money I had to so I wouldn’t go into debt. I tried a website with very little guidance. It took me 6 months to make a little bit of money, and then I began to go crazy and spend money quickly thinking it would bring me more money.
That was my first mistake. I was looking at the next shiny thing. This happens to many people who are new to internet marketing. Then I settled down, regrouped and started to make money. It took some training and support from other people. I thought I did not want to share my ideas with others because they would just take the idea and make it their own. Instead what I found was that the more I shared the more money I made. The more questions I asked the quicker the money came in as well.
What should you do to get started
I really didn’t make any true progress until I settled down and became very skeptical of all the offers to make money online that are on the internet. You can become jaded quickly. So where should you get started? My suggestion is the same place that helped me build a successful online business. You can read about it here on my number one recommendation.
The key for me was wealthy affiliates. Not only does it have a great library of training available, it also has a community that helps teach you what to do, when to do it and how to do it to become successful in online business. I want to stress again it is a process it is not something that you will become rich overnight with, but instead overtime you can develop healthy streams of income.
How long until you make money
The reality is, it depends. You could make money tomorrow. It could take you months or even up to a year. It depends on your effort and commitment. You can look at it as an investment of time into yourself. Most internet marketers do not make any money for three months. Most don’t make steady money until 6 months. After about a year many have a good income from their internet marketing efforts. The amazing thing is once you have built that income you have to do very little to maintain that income.
It becomes a passive income. Then you can move to another site and another. You don’t need 1 site to make you $10,000 a month what is wrong with 10 sites earning you $1,000 per month? I say nothing. It is possible to make $10,000 from one site. But it does not take that much work to have multiple sites running at the same time and all of them making money for you. It does take time to build the sites up.
Is making passive income possible.
It is not only possible but probably to make passive income from internet marketing. I have stressed on more than one occasion on this website as well as in this article that it does take time and effort. Anyone that tells you otherwise is not giving you the entire story. The best feeling in the world is the first dollar you make, heck it can even be a cent. It shows you that it really does work.
