Every day, thousands of people get the idea that Internet Marketing might just be for them. The concept of making money online can be expressed in very desirable vocabulary.
You’ve seen it. Headlines like “Who Else Wants To Earn $3000 Per Month – In Their Sleep!”
I made that up but it’s not far off.
If you are like thousands of other folks trying to get into Internet Marketing, you may be having a hard time getting started. It happens to the best of us.
I’m 60 years old! For 35 years I’ve been in Sales and Marketing! I was, and am, mostly successful. Sure, I had my bad times. Times when I thought the chances of my financial survival were non-existant. I’ve been depressed and I’ve been exhilarated.
I have had to learn a lot to get where I am.
A few months back I decided I’d get into Internet Marketing. I’ve always been in sales so it seems like a natural fit.
But let me tell you what I am most excited about regarding Internet Marketing?
First, it costs you very little to get started, and the ongoing costs are very small.
Second, there is little barrier to entry.
Third, there is good earnings potential.
Fourth, you can set this up to be mostly automatic.
All you need is average computer skills, the ability to get online, a little time to apply to the pursuit, and the skills necessary to make it happen. And some money, but not a lot.
This is the secret to Internet Marketing success. You have to know how.
There it is. The skills. If you don’t acquire the skills necessary for success at Internet Marketing you won’t be able to do it.
You’ll not get there. You won’t make money.
It happens, but it doesn’t have to happen. You can learn the skills and you can succeed. You can make money online! I still remember the first time I got an email stating that a deposit had been made to my paypal account!
Back in 2007 I enrolled in a school that teaches Online Marketing. When I arrived, I knew very little. The first four videos were aimed at giving the newcomers an overview of what Internet Marketing is. They covered the various ways of making money online.
Then the curriculum got down to the basics. I learned those basics and more, including building web pages and starting a blog, to being able to research keywords and niche markets.
That is the very thing I advise people who are just getting in. Go get the lessons.
Do that. Join a forum or a school, and read up and learn! I did all three. I’m still learning everyday.
You can do it, too. Just go do your next lesson.
