How to Start Internet Marketing

Updated on May 8, 2011

Before you can begin monetizing from your efforts on internet, you need to know how to start internet marketing. Without a blue print of the steps you might require to take your efforts are likely to be wasted. The blue print must include your goals and the actions you are going to take to achieve your goals.

You will need a product to promote. There are more than 100,000 products available on internet so you have an endless choice. The list of these hundred thousand products will definitely have hundreds of products to attract your interest. Most of these products are digital such as e-books. There are websites that might interest you to promote. Besides, you can register at mega internet malls like ebay and amazon that have thousands of products such as electronic products like camera, mobile phones, gifts, toys, books and the list goes on…In other words there are enough products out there to interest you. You can choose any number of products to promote them or you can choose just one.

Where would you market the products? You may market the products either on the websites of the others or on your own website. It is always better to market the products on your own website. In the long run you want to have the website like your own piece of real estate that earns you money day in and day out.

If you are a little experienced in the cyber world, you might know that creating a website of your own is no big deal. You don’t need to be a programmer. Today almost any one can create their own site within minutes. Otherwise, you might like to hire some one that can make your website. Once you have your website up and running you can put banner ads, links, and content on it. Those internet users who come to your site are not just the visitors but potential clients that might purchase the product they like through your website.

However, why should visitors come to your site? They are not aware of your site. Those searching for something go to a search engine like Google, write the search term (such as best digital camera) and press enter. Thousands of pages appear on screen and they click on the websites that are at the top. So, how can you ensure that your site selling or recommending products come on the top? It takes time, effort, learning and application of what you learn such as key words, seo key words, backlinks, article directories etc to ensure that your page comes at the top of the search pages when buyers click at your products and money begins to flow to your account.

While you can always start internet marketing all by yourself, it is always advisable to seek a mentor that holds you by hand and assists you from a to z till you become profitable.
