Disadvantages

Internet Marketing
Unless you have prior exposure to Internet marketing, you will be new to landing pages, opt in boxes, list builders etc. When I didn’t know anything about Internet Marketing, I entered my name and email address at several websites and never really understood the logic behind it. When you learn internet marketing, you will know how to leverage the list and realize the life time value of a customer.

Generating Traffic
You will be new to generating traffic on the Internet. There are several ways of generating traffic to your website. Depending on your strengths, you need to choose two different methods of lead generation preferably one paid and one free.

Copywriting
I never realized the importance of copywriting until I started my Internet marketing business. Copywriting comes into picture when write text to a landing page, an advertisement or an email message to your list etc. You need to slowly learn and use the power of copywriting in your business.

Internet is here to stay. Marketing on the internet is a very valuable skill one can possess.
Once you know how to market a product online, you can apply your knowledge to any other product with minimal or no changes.
