marketing by internet

marketing by internet

I was one of the thousands (if not millions) of people who wanted my own
“internet money machine” and I came from a position where I had little or no
computer knowledge - I could send and receive emails and knew how to surf the
net - but that was literally it!

Does that sound like you? If so then how do you get from that position to
making serious money on the internet? The first thing I did was get incredibly
excited. I’d been looking for a home based business and eventually stumbled
across the internet as an obvious market place. After all I had a computer at
home. So I looked around the web (using one of my existing skills - I knew how
to surf!) and soon realised “I want to make money on the internet”.

So I spent some more time surfing for ways of making this desire a reality.
There seemed so many businesses and no shortage of people offering to make me
serious money on the internet. How kind of them! Just type in “online business
opportunity” in Google and see what I mean. It was about now I began to think
perhaps not all these opportunities were as great as they were cracked up to

So I went around doing a bit of market research. How? I visited a few forums.
You soon learn that there is a forum on just about any subject online. It is a
phenomenon that you can use to weed out some of the good from bad if you use
them right. Visit a few (again use Google or whichever search engine you have)
and just read the posts relating to your interest. If you like you can join and
actually ask some questions. Nearly everyone is helpful and friendly. But beware
the person who tries to hard sell his or her opportunity to you.

It helps to get over the get rich quick mentality as soon as possible. Sure
you can make serious money on the internet - it is after all a market place -
but start out with the intention of making a steady income first. Don’t try to
run before you can walk. When you have your regular income covered you will be
in a good position to move to the next stage (getting rich!)

There are so many business types and niches out there that you will have no
problem finding something - in fact you will probably be overwhelmed by the
sheer scale of it all. I really had no idea before I started. Just try and hone
in on something you have an interest in or that you have some experience in at
first. Then research the business and market and the opportunities presented.
Visit websites, use the forums and download some ebooks on the subject -
invaluable in my experience.

Every bit of help and knowledge you need is to be found online. Just use your
search engine as a research tool. The web is like an almost infinite library at
your fingertips. I can honestly say that I learned everything I needed without
leaving my seat!

Good luck with your “internet money machine”, you can do it!
