Internet Marketing for NEWBIES.
To Start an Internet Marketing Business.
The all important starting point is:
- Go with what you know (maybe you suffer from diabetes, or have a child with a weight problem)
- Your passion: golf, hydroponics, organic gardening, photography……
- What Interests you: helping people with a problem, tech stuff, writing a book (Kindle)
Making a success of Internet Marketing is not necessarily guaranteed when you start off with one of the above departure points above, it just makes it easier.
Many Newbies may lose interest in a business model that they cannot relate to.
More about Internet Marketing Business Models later.
Many stay-at-home Moms have a thriving online business doing just that: what they love to do.
It may be raising children, relationships, web design, graphic design, wedding flowers, copywriting, SEO, interior design or marketing educational toys as an Amazon Associate.
This may be an opportune time to throw this in at the beginning.
Having the right mindset is not a guarantee of success whereas a Wrong Mindset will guarantee failure.
Just what is the wrong mindset?
Having the wrong mindset may include: this is just an interim move, not viewing it as a real business, unrealistic expectation, get-rich-quick, lack of focus, not prepared to learn some basic IM skills and no plan of action. The list goes on and on.
Will my passion or interest make money?
Having decided on topic it is time for a very crucial exercise.
Research your topic or Niche
Even if you spend days or a month on this aspect, you will reap the rewards in the future, for sure.
To make money online implies that somebody else is prepared to pay for the information that you are offering.
But it is important to first find out what information people are:
- talking about, or
- Googling or
- searching for online.
With Internet Marketing, this is referred to as ‘Keyword Research’
Put another way: ‘what questions or terms are people using on the Internet to find a solution to their problem or need.
Google has a database of millions of keywords that people use.
Take the Weight Loss Niche as an example.
Search terms may be:
- How to lose weight fast after childbirth
- How to get my child to lose weight.
- How to Teach My Child To Read
This is actually the cornerstone of any online business.
And this is the process of discovering the keywords that your business will focus on to meet needs or wants and get paid for providing that information.
Business models to choose from;
There are many, many ways or methods to follow to make money online as an Internet Marketer.
Create your own Digital Product
There are hundreds of Moms and Dads that have monetized their passion or knowledge and created their own digital product with huge success. The subject matter ranges from Coaching Married Couples, Raising Children or How to Manage Your Home Finances.
Affiliate Marketing – Digital Products
This is where you sell or promote the Digital Product that belongs to the product creator. In turn, you are paid a commission. These products are hosted on sites like Clickbank, Commission Junction, JVZoo, Warrior Forum Plus and much more.
Sell Physical Products.
Here the most popular strategy is to become an Amazon Associate.
