Internet Marketing For Beginners – The Definitive Guide
Internet Marketing can be a strange world for beginners. So much information to take in, so much to learn, so many people who want your hard-earned cash. This article will explain all about Internet Marketing for beginners and how you can start profiting today.
So let’s get right into it.
You should be reading this article if you haven’t made any money online yet, are just starting out and need to re-learn the basics, or even if you still consider yourself a beginner in Internet Marketing.
There are main methods of making money online:
1) Selling Your Own Stuff
This involves creating an information product such as a PDF report containing a guide for something (how to lose weight, for example), an audio or video series, and/or tutorials. Basically you should be selling your visitors information which solves a problem that they’re currently having.
Even if you’re a beginner in the niche you’re selling to, you can still collect information from elsewhere and compile it into a completely new product.
You can see why this is particularly effective in modern society, as we’re increasingly becoming an information-based society to improve our skills to solve problems.
However, if you’re an Internet Marketing beginner, you should avoid ‘popular’ niches such as weight loss, health and fitness, and the make money online niche.
2) Selling Other People’s Stuff – ‘Affiliate Marketing‘
This is particularly effective for making easy cash, as someone else has already created a product FOR YOU, so you can jump straight into the marketing side of it to make some quick cash (which is what beginners usually enjoy).
Essentially, you sell someone else’s product for a split of the profit, set by the product owner, usually as a percentage. This is called a ‘commission’.
When you sign up to their affiliate programme, you’ll be given a special link which you should send to your customers to order through. When someone orders through your link, the product owner will see it and pay you the agreed commission.
3) Advertising Revenue
The basic idea here is to build a website in a specific niche to receive a lot of visitors (‘traffic’) and eventually put advertising on it when it grows popular. This may be tough as a beginner, so it’s usually best to create some authority for your personal brand to begin with.
Probably the most popular advertising advertising revenue source is ‘Google AdSense’. All you have to do is copy and paste a unit of code on your website to display their advertisements, and you get paid every time someone clicks on one of the advertisement links.
Finally, there’s advertising banners. These aren’t as popular as they were previously, mainly due to losing their responsiveness and getting damn annoying, but are still a good source of income for people who consider themselves beginners at Internet Marketing.
So with all of these choices available to you, which is the most profitable in the long term? The answer: Creating and selling your own product. This is because you have freedom to change anything – the price, the offer, the product… Anything! Also, it’s easier keep customers in the long term, which you wouldn’t usually get with affiliate promotions.
I hope this article on Internet Marketing For Beginners has helped, and good luck with your product creating!
