Internet Marketing Basics

Have you recently started your own website? If you've just started your new business online, you'll want to learn more about how to market and promote your company in order to find the customers who will make your business successful.

If you have any experience with marketing, you'll have an advantage with understanding some of these Internet marketing basics. But even if this is your first business and you have never created a company online or had a brick-and-mortar store before, there are a number of Internet marketing basics that you are familiar with, even if you don't recognize it yet.

One of the top keys to success with Internet marketing strategies is to learn what other successful businesses have done. Name some of the most popular and successful companies that you admire. Think about some of these questions to plan your own marketing strategies:

- What do they offer their customers (like you) that catch their attention?
- What makes their company unique from all of the others?
- How do they reach you and other customers? What kind of advertising do they use - TV, radio, Internet ads, promotional advertising, etc.?
- Do they have special prices or promotions that you pay attention to? Why?

When you start to analyze what makes other companies get your attention, you'll be able to apply the same concepts to your business. After all, marketing concepts that work in traditional business environments can often translate to the online arena as well. However, unlike the traditional marketing environment, there are some Internet marketing basics that are unique to websites. Learn more about some of these options to promote your company online.

- Google AdWords, Google AdSense, Yahoo! Search Marketing: With this form of advertising, you choose the keywords you want customers to associate your business with and pay money every time they click on your ad.
- Banner ads: Have you ever noticed the ads above the articles you read online? These graphic ads are called "banner ads" and are similar to billboards that you see while driving on the road.
- Social marketing: Use sites like Twitter and Facebook to find new customers and promote your business simultaneously. If your friends support your business, their friends will become fans as well.

Where do you start? At first, when you have a new website to promote, even the most simple Internet marketing basics might seem overwhelming. Again, look to the traditional businesses in your area. They didn't build a business and see immediate success. You'll want to be patient and constantly look for new ways to promote your business online. Fortunately for you, the Internet is always changing and adapting, so new marketing ideas are just around the corner!

Stuart Nunn is a success in the home business industry and shows you how you can learn Internet marketing basics while earning a vast income at the same time.

How To Make A Lot Of Money And Generate Cash When You Are Broke

am proud of you that you decided to read this article. These methods had helped me a lot, especially when I was in college. Many of you have written me and asked me how to make money and how to generate extra cash when you are broke. So many of you are still in school and a lot of employers only want to give you a minimum wage and you can barely survive with the minimum wage. Some of you are working hard daily and live from paycheck to paycheck.

I can relate to what you’re going through right now, so hang in there and be ready to see great and positive changes in your life today after you read this article!

I used to save left over food from the cafeteria where I worked in college, so I could survive, because I didn’t any money to buy food that summer. I had to borrow money to buy my super expensive college text books. So I can understand what you’re going through right now.

Listen carefully to this; you can change your income significantly and your life by changing your daily habits. You must be willing to change! You must be willing work hard for to make the changes.

It doesn’t take a smart people to figure it out why we go broke. It means that our spending is more than what we earn. People go broke because their expenses are higher than their income!

The first thing you want to do when you find yourself broke is to start writing your expenses down on a piece of paper down to every penny of it. It is called, reviewing your net worth. You want to know how much money in your bank accounts and your wallet!

You must write down your expenses, income and this is a must! You can track down what you can not see. Please listen to this, start learning how to keep in track your expenses and income! Have a small book or PDA with you at all time to write down your expenses and income.

You must know how much money have and if you don’t have any right now, you must know how much money you want to have in the future. Make sure you write down a reasonable goal that you can achieve, like by Oct 30, I will have $300 in my savings account, and by Dec 30, I will have $600 in my savings, and so on. Believe me, when you know your goals and destination and you know where you are going, it will give you the motivation to go there!

Now get ready for the life changing methods that may help you get out of your challenges and trials. These are the methods that will help you to change your income level!

1. You must change your daily habit!

I love what the Bible says, “look and observe the ants.” Why would I want to look and observe ants? The reason why you want to be like ants is, ants are not lazy! They work day in and out, they are willing to save up some food for the winter time by working very hard in the summer. Believe it or not, Ants never eat more than they earn. They know how much food to give to their colony; they know how much food they need, so they can have enough food to eat for everybody in their ant colony. The will work hard to get the food their need for the winter time even when they have to sacrifice their life for the life of their colony. That’s why sometimes; ants will frustrate you, because they will keep coming to your house until they are sure that they have enough supply for every ant in their colony. They will stop coming to get your food when they know; they have plenty of food to survive during the winter.

Listen, your time is the most valuable thing that you and I have! We can trade our time for money by solving someone’s problem. Find what you’re good at and use your time, talents and gifts to start making money for you.

I was good in computers, so I charged students and school faculties if they want me to fix their computers.

Wake up early in the morning and use your day wisely to make money. Have you ever noticed that people who sleep too much and people who watch TV and movies too much don’t have much money? The reason why they don’t have much money, because they are not willing to trade their time for the money they need. They waste their time for something that won’t make them rich. Your time is like the energy in a battery, sooner or later, you will run out of it if you don’t know hot to use it wisely.

So get up! Stop being lazy! The rich and the poor both have 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, they rich don’t have more hours than the poor, but what makes a big difference is how they use up their time to generate wealth!

Go to work an hour early and go home an hour late. You must discipline yourself to work harder and smarter than everybody else! Most people love to come late and leave early, that’s why they are poor.

If you own your own business, make sure you give your customers your best for the bucks! It makes them want to do more business with you in the future. The next time you are tempted to waste your time, think twice!

Your daily habits will determine your future and what you do today will decide what’s coming to you in the future.

2. You must learn how to sell!

I used to buy a lot of cheap computer parts on UBID.com and EBAY.com and sold them to students who needed the computer parts. Before I bought them, I asked several students whether they will buy the computer parts from me when I got them. When I had buyers for the products, then I bought them cheap at the auction sites and sell them higher than cost of buying them.

You must be aware of the trend in your school! I remember the day when network T1 connection was popular at our school. I sold network cards like cakes, because back then not every computer had a network card. How about IPOD? Find out how many people own an IPOD and start selling the IPOD case, cover and accessories!

Keep your eyes open toward the latest trend and new things that are going on in your area!

You must learn how to sell. A lot of students got hungry at night, so I stocked up some food in my fridge and sold them to the people who didn’t have a car to go to the store!

Read books and listen to tapes that will teach you how to sell better. Use your mind to think of ways of making money.

Make a DVDs rental in your dorm room! You can buy 100 DVDs on Ebay for $100 and make your own rental place in your dorm room! Charge student $1 for a day to rent the DVD! Make sure they don’t steal your DVD! Keep record of who rents the DVD. 100 students rent your movie, that’s $100/day!

You can even start using the Internet to generate money by selling on Ebay! Ebay is a great money making tool that I am using to these days to generate additional income. Learn how you can make money on the Internet. Invest your time and money to learn more about ways of making money on the Internet.

I don’t care how good in computers, web design or giving make up, but if you can not sell your skills, you won’t be making money out of your skills. You must learn how to sell and market your skills and learn how to be good at selling.

You see, when you use your mind to think, a lot of ways to make money can come up in your mind and you will never be broke ever again in your life! A lot of people are broke because they never use their mind to think!

3. Invest 10% of Your Money In Skills that Can Help You Create More Money!

When I first came to college, I didn’t know how to do web design and how to develop a web site, but I used 10% of my income to buy books that would teach me how to be a web designer and developer! I took my time to develop my skills to become a web developer! Within a year of learning, I started to build web sites for other people on campus and made higher income than the rest of the students in college.

You must invest in other skills that will help you to make more money. If you like to give make up, well you may want to invest books on how to become make up artist! You can charge people to do their make up and hair for them when they want to go to a party and different special events. I know a guy in college who made his money by cutting hair. He charged $8 for a hair cut while Super Cut charged $15. So people came to him to get their hair cut.

I knew also some students who did house painting for other people in the community on the weekends.

There are thousand of ways of making money when you are broke, you just have to find the right kind of skills for you and the willingness to take action and do it.

4. Exercise, Eat Good Food and Keep Yourself Healthy.

Your mind is the most powerful asset that you will ever have in your life time. Your mind can help you create wealth! So listen to me, “STOP ABUSING YOUR MIND AND BODY!” Eat healthy, exercise, and get enough rest.

I learned that when I feel good, I can think well. I can think of ways of making money when I feel good about myself.

How can you think when you have heat pack on your head, thermometer on your mouth and blanket on your body? When you’re sick, you can’t use your mind to think! So make sure you keep yourself healthy and well!

I remember what one of my martial arts teachers told me about drinking alcohol. When you are drunk! You can even fight you defend yourself! So how can you think of ways to make yourself rich when you are drunk! The best way to be ready for a fight is to be sober. The best time for you to think is, when you are sober. If you like to drink a lot of alcohol, you may want to consider quiting your drinking habit.

Take care of yourself and be good to yourself and your body. Keep your body and mind healthy and well, so they can help you to think well.

5. You must believe that today’s circumstances are only temporary, they will change!

High achievers never look at their situation today; they always see themselves as how they can be in the future. Look, you may think that your situation today will never change. When you are going through a financial trials and challenges, you may feel like you are not making any progress in your life, but believe me, it is only temporary. Try to extract wisdom and understanding from the trials and challenges that you are facing right now. When hard times hit us, our mind will be forced to think.

I got my motivation to work hard when I didn’t have food to eat that summer in college, my stomach was hungry, and I had to eat left over food. I didn’t have a car for 6 years, believe me, it was tough when you had to ask your friends to drive you every where when you need to go somewhere.

I vowed to myself that I will work hard to achieve my goals and dreams. I realized that no body else would help me except myself. I was the one who was responsible for my destiny and life. I was the one who could change my life. I vowed to myself that I would work hard, to have the determination, patience and willingness to change my daily habits, so in the future; I don’t have to eat left over food anymore, I can drive any car I want, and have my own place to live.

If you believe in God, it is time for you to really kneel on your knees and spend time with Him. Pray about it, ask God to bring financial wisdom and prosperity into your life! Don’t be afraid to ask the Lord for a blessing! He is God who created you; He is the God who will give you strength, courage and wisdom to go on! Make a special time for you to talk to God and pray every day!

I believe in you’re my friend, I believe in you! As you sit there right now, I want to see yourself as a special person with a special gift and talent that can be used to get you out of trouble! The best days of your life are just ahead of you! You may not be able to see the days ahead of you! But have faith! Have faith! You can do great things in your life! You can make a difference in your life! You have the strength and power to make your life better! I believe in you’re my friend! I believe in you! Stand up, get up and stand tall! You are gifted with a great mind to think! Your mind can help you way different ways to set you free! Get up and stand up my friend!

Tell yourself right now out loud as you read this repeat this out loud after me “I am able to change my life! I can go through this trial that I am going through, I will stand tall, and I will not be defeated by these trials and challenges! I am special, I am unique, and I believe that the best days of me are just ahead of me! Everything will be just fine! I vow today that I will give my best to work hard for my future! I will not be lazy! I will form positive daily habits today! I will not lie again to myself, when I say I will do it, I will do it! Tomorrow will be a new day, and I will face with confidence, tomorrow will be a new day for me!”

Tip: How do you make $40/hour? When I was in college I lived in a dorm and I noticed some of the guys were lazy to wash their clothes. Listen to this story carefully. So I asked them whether I could do their laundry for them for $40/hour, believe me or not, some of them were willing to give me $40/hour to do their laundry. Some of you may say, "I don't want to do someone's else laundry." I know that, but while the rest of the campus made only $4.25/hour, while I was making $40/hour. It took nine and half hours for everybody else who was embarassed to wash other people's laundry to make $40. Can you imagine how much money you have if there are nine people who want you to wash their laundry! 9 people * $40/hour = $360/hour. The point that I am trying to make is, you don't really need a job to make money! If you only know how to observe other people's needs around you. You can serve those people's needs to make a lot of money.

I love each and every one of you and with all my heart; I believe that you can do it and you can start creating your wealth today!

The 3 Top Ways to Earn Money Working Online

The creation of the Internet and the mass production of computers in the late 80's changed the way we live our lives forever. Now, everyone has the potential to be their own boss whether you are a student, a stay at home mom or an accountant.

By doing a search on Google you will find countless opportunities to earn money working online.
The possibilities seem endless. Below are the most popular ways to earn money working online
along with some of their pros and cons.

This is the start from scratch method. You register a domain and sell your own products from it. It could be an informational product, software, or a physical product such as a book.

Pro: There are many ways to monetize with this method. Along with your own product you can
offer users affiliate programs and earn money with Google Adsense. It’s also often easier to market because this is your baby and you are more likely to know it inside out as opposed to an MLM program where everyone has the same home page and you aren’t part of the decision making when it comes to the growth of the site.

Con: This type of business takes a lot of time, energy and often, money to get set up. Profits don’t come pouring in right away. If you have a physical product you will need to find a way to get your products to your customers either with a drop ship company or on your own.

The real bonus of this system is once you know what you’re doing you can make a lot
of money and you can find ways to do it without working as hard.

Affiliate Marketing
If you got paid every time someone used a service or bought a product that you recommend you would probably earn a lot of money. This is the concept behind affiliate marketing. You recommend a site to visitors and then pick up a percentage of the sale that those visitors make.

Pro: This is one of the “easiest” ways to earn money working online. It’s easy in the sense that you don’t have to worry about having your own product or service and don’t have to deal with customer service.

Con: Finding a good affiliate program can be daunting. You have to keep in mind that you will be competing with other affiliates for commissions. Unlike having your own product where you keep 100% of the profits, you only get a portion so you have to sell a lot of products to earn the kind of money that online gurus brag about.

As long as you actively promote your products and stay ahead of your competition you should find this to be a satisfying way to earn money online

Getting paid to do surveys/read emails
Your opinion really can count for two cents. Surveys and emails arrive in your inbox and each time you complete one you get a reward. It could be in the form of cash or points. Most times you will receive a free sample or an entry into a draw for a cash prize.

Pro: This method of earning money online has the most appeal for many work at home beginners. You don’t need a product, you don’t need to promote, you don’t even need a website. You simply read e-mails and complete surveys.

Con: You have to read a lot of emails and complete tons of surveys to earn any real cash. Many of these “read emails and get paid” programs pay you in cents. And although you can earn up to $100 for a survey the chances of you getting one of those is slim and they are extremely long. You are more likely to get a survey invitation that pays $3.00. Or you may only receive a coupon for a survey that took 30min of your time.

The trick is to sign up with a lot of programs, at least 10.

There is no one size fits all method for earning money working online. You need to decide how much time you have and how much you are willing to spend. There is a program that is suited for you; you just have to find it.

Learning Affiliate Marketing and Getting it Right First Time

If you have a real passion and hunger towards learning affiliate marketing you'll have been through the initial ups (when you buy into the instant cash dream), hit the lows as you struggle to make your first dollar and then fight the urge to 'spin too many plates' and try too many different ideas without having success at any. Classic problems and what I'm going to share with you today will (without doubt) help and more importantly work.

Learning affiliate marketing will start to reap the rewards and once your clickbank or paypal (or both) start to see sales, you've jumped that first hurdle so many fall at.

Yawn... Finding a profitable niche in seconds
How to find a profitable niche is instrumental in learning affiliate marketing. You may have found this an initial stumbling block because many of the profitable niche are already inundated with affiliates you've got to battle with for that Google ranking. Pick a popular product and yes you've got a seller, if you can get traffic to it.

So how do you overcome the competition, how to you fight the super-affilates and carve your niche or rather micro-niche? Answer? You don't have to... A profitable niche is accompanied by a ton of traffic and not all that traffic goes to the first 10 ranks on Google. Have you ever (genuinely) been searching for information on the internet and skipped through several pages to find the title or site that answers your question? I have.

In a profitable marketing you have the volume of traffic to provide the spill over to get traffic, regardless of your ranking once you create the correct style of website with a good layout.

Boring... Keyword Research
If you really want to fight those super-affiliates and your serious about learning affiliate marketing you need to understand that 'affiliate marketing' is 'keyword marketing'. The two are one and the same and you have to dominate your niche for that keyword. Then expand (ie. into an authority site).

Lets use a brand new, controversial keyword research tool.. You're imagination. Now I don't know the exact figures but I know a man who does. It can be shown that there are a ridiculous amount of long tail keywords that are unique. You can prove this by thinking back to your own research. How many times have you abandoned a keyword because there was insufficient or no result? I have but that doesn't mean you can win ALL those random keywords. This is learning affiliate marketing the super clever way!

Go to the search engines, put on your 'customer hat' and think about what someone might type it. Give it a go and start thinking, brand name, product name, ingredients, versions, misspellings. Now create content that has it all. If you don't believe me, keep on reading and you will sold on this idea!

Just do it..
This isn't just tat, non-sense and I certainly haven't simply dreamt it up. I've used this in learning affiliate marketing and having made all the mistakes, I'm now getting somewhere (finally).

The brains behind this 'controversy' is a fellow (and super-affiliate) called Chris Rempel, he's making headlines, reaching cult status and you can tap into his unique approach to learning affiliate marketing easy. The man over delivers and if you want to make some bucks (think his six figure income at 24 years of age) then get your butt in gear and check him out.

Stop trying so hard now that learning affiliate marketing has never been 'clearer'.

Don't deny your paypal and clickbank their food and you're fun! Check out this LINK and start learning affiliate marketing the lazy way. Forget what NWA said and 'do believe the hype'.

8 Common Mistakes of Internet Marketers.

If you wish to be a successful Internet marketer you will want to avoid these 8 mistakes:

1. Failure to prepare properly. Many Internet marketers are simply lazy and will not make the effort to prepare properly. Refrain from being overly anxious as if you’ll miss the boat if you do not market your website immediately. Use however many days it takes to setup all the appropriate advertising accounts and advertisements properly. This will make your administration more efficient and enable you to fly through your schedule tasks effortlessly each day. The net result is that your marketing efforts will be far more productive than if you were to take a haphazard approach.

2. Failure to implement an advertising strategy. You must have a plan with well defined goals if you wish to have positive marketing results. Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Do not try to recreate the wheel. Find out what successful people are doing and do the same. Regarding goals, write them down. When you achieve a goal mark it as “completed” and replace it with another. By doing this very simple step you can monitor your effectiveness and progress.

3. Failure to be professional. Some of the ads on the Internet are of embarrassingly poor quality. Be professional in your business approach and in the design of your ads. If you lack the ability to produce professional ads then find a resource that can. The quality of your website and advertisements is a reflection on you. Also, when dealing with customers always be courteous and professional even when they are not. If you are professional you will shine above the rest and earn customer confidence.

4. Failure to implement and adhere to a disciplined schedule. If you don’t have a realistic schedule in place then you will not be disciplined in marketing your ads properly. Consistency not volume is the key to success in marketing on the Internet. A schedule allows you to be consistent and also forces you to be disciplined. The Internet is not a “get rich quick” environment. It takes hours of dedicated and consistent work. You must be committed to putting in the time if you wish to have good marketing results.

5. Failure to utilize the right tools. There are some very innovative tools on the Internet to make the operation of your business more efficient. Many of them are very affordable and they will save you from having great frustration. Some marketers take the approach of being a “penny wise and a pound foolish.” In saving their pennies they are losing out on making the bigger dollars. Don’t ignore the many tools which are available.

6. Failure to build a downline. Your downline is the cornerstone of your business. A downline is your customer list or they can be referrals that join certain advetising programs through you serving as an affiliate. Verious advertising sites offer you some type of compensation for bringing them referrals. Don't ignore the value of these referrals. Some Internet marketers are so anxious to advertise their product they fail to have an understanding of the bigger picture. A big downline can save you money in your advertising and enbable you to advertise more effectively. When soliciting always get the email address of your customer for future solicitations and sales.

7. Failure to track ads. Much time is wasted on unproductive sites and ads. If you’re not tracking them you will continually work in ignorance. You must have a measure of what is working and what is not. Is the program that you are participating in yielding the desired results? Are your ads well written and effective in drawing customers?
