Internet Marketing in 5 Not-So-Easy Steps


So everyone seems to want to start making money online nowadays, isn’t it? Especially in today’s economy people are not only looking for ways to make an extra income but to find a whole new career in internet marketing.

For me personally the journey began a bit similar, simply typing ‘How to Make Money Online’ into google. If you’ll do a similar search you’ll get tons of articles and blog posts on how to make money in a few easy steps…

Well the bad news is that these steps will not be so easy as you’ll need to put in a lot of work and effort into learning things you have no or little idea about…

Here is my take on How to get into Internet Marketing in 5 (Not-So) Easy Steps.

1) Set up an autoresponder and focus on building your list – the first part might seem easy but to actually do it the right way takes a bit of time and experience definitely helps. You have to pick the right products to promote, know when to stop promoting and give away some free stuff etc. The second part is even more time and money consuming but ‘the money is in the list’ right? Well it can be but again you have to do it the right way…

2) Start a blog, a review website, a products promoting website etc and start working on the SEO – pretty easy, right? While you can set up a website in a couple of hours (assuming that you have experience doing it), ranking it in Google is a much harder task. It takes consistency and a lot of knowledge on how to do it the right way, especially with google releasing updates to their search engine more and more often nowadays. What worked a few years back, simply will not work today and you have to stay on top of things if you want to get results…

3) Get involved in Forums – this is a great way of putting your name out there, bring in traffic to your website and helping out people like you. Again, you have to do it the right way, meaning no spamming! This will get you banned quickly and your reputation can be on the line as well, because the forum communities are very strict  about it. You’ll have to be aware of one thing – it can be very time consuming so you’ll have to control yourself!

4) Go Social – Social Media is totally taking over the internet and not only because the social part, getting traffic, promotion etc. All of this is super important but what is also worth mentioning is that the search engines are using the social media websites to check the relevance of their searches. It means it doesn’t only come down to the number and quality of backlinks you have pointing to your website but also is it being shared in social media. This might very well be the future of search engines…

5) Be consistent – that might be actually the hardest part – you can’t get caught up. In the beginning everyone is super excited when they are starting their internet marketing business, they spend hours upon hours trying to learn new things, set up things properly, blogging everyday etc.  97% of these people unfortunately quit after a few months – they don’t really see any great results with what they are doing or they simply jump from one thing to another, never mastering anything. Again – being consistent seems easy when you say it but actually following through is a totally different story!

Good luck guys 🙂
