Internet Marketing for Beginners
Learning Internet Marketing to make money -but not spend a dime out of your pocket
I want to work from home, don't you? Every one is doing it so why can't we?
So how do you become an Internet Marketer if you don't have a web site and don't have a clue how to build one? What about all the web site terminology like HTML codes. Don't let the I don't knows stop you. Because there are easy tools out there to help you build what ever it is you are wanting to do plus you can do it with out spending a dime out of your pocket.
For many years working from home learning Internet Marketing was a dream of mine. Well, actually at first I dreamed about owning my own business, but that never happened because I didn't have 10's of thousands of dollars to do. You know, Rent a building, buy inventory so on and so forth.
So for 28 years I worked in society for other companies, making them lot's of money, giving them all of my time and at the end I had nothing to show for it. So I came up with a brilliant idea one day... I quit my job, I cussed my boss out, threw my work shirt in his face and walked out of the plant. From that day on I stayed at home got on my computer, which I knew nothing about because I was so busy working every where all those years. I decided to teach myself all that I could on the Computer. Oh sure, I knew how to check my email, but what was Internet marketing, Twitter, Blogging, Social Networking??? I had no clue.
Doing much and long research I had to figure out how to put everything together. That was complicated. I came across a few things and am going to share them with you. I'm not an expert ( not yet) but I am making a little money and that is exciting to me. Which I'm sure once you get started will also be exciting for you.
The big GURU's will be mad at me
Yes, those big so called money making Internet Guru's will be mad at me for giving you all this information for FREE. That's because it cut's into their pocket. I believe in "Pay it Forward" you have heard of that haven't you? Just in case you haven't.
Pay it forward is: Do something nice for one or more people that will help them. It can be anything for instance:...... 1) Help an Elderly person across a heavy traffic road. 2) Give a person a Quarter if they are short at the cash register grocery store. Get my point?
Well, mine is this article " Internet Marketing for Beginner's" I will get absolutely nothing out of it. The only thing I would get is if you happen to leave a comment telling me something or all of this information is HELPING you. I will feel Happiness. That is it!! Plain Happy because I got to help someone. That cost's you and me NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!
Dont fall for the SCAMS
Since many people are so eager to make money and want to make it fast, there are plenty of scams that try to lure you the "Beginner" into joining there make lot's of money programs. You must be careful. I can't stress that enough. I don't have a program that I am trying to get you into. I am not in a "Pyramid" program either. You do not and will not sign up with me for anything. That is the truth. I am just giving you some knowledge, but you have to put it into work. You have to read, study and apply. Then start building. You may not make a dime at first. But don't give up. You will understand more as you build. Every day you will come across something else that will help you and encourage you. But there also will be days were you think, " Okay that's it I give up, what's the use"!!!
Please don't give up. You will know if it right for you because you will want to spend every minute of your time building and creating your sites. You will think about it 24/7.
Even if you aren't a creative, writing articles, making you tube video's kind of person, eventually you will be. I mean this for real. When I first started I had to look up ( or google) what "Internet Marketing" meant or was. I had no clue of using a COMPUTER. My husband had to show me how to use E-mail and search stuff on the internet. I was pathetic. But now!! I show him things he or other people, like my friends and family never had a clue about. I'm proud of myself for teaching Myself everything I know today. I do have a lot more to learn. But by the time you just get to the basics of what I have told you so far, I will be a few more steps ahead to get YOU ahead too. So let's get started.
It's not Easy!
I have to be honest with you. Internet Marketing is not EASY. You can't just put together a site in a few minutes and expect to get paid right away. It takes time. I don't mean one or two hours in time. I mean one or two Years in time.
Yes it does take awhile because you have to do a lot of research, studying, reading, writing, thinking. You come across new information almost daily. Then you have to know how to put it together. You can't just copy and paste some one Else's words. You have to write your own content. Don't let that scare you because your not a writer. Just write what is in your heart and mind. Write like you are actually talking, telling your story.
Believe it or not there are some good people out there that are willing to share and help. Giving away the much needed information for Beginner Internet Marketers. I am and want to be one of those people. Because when I started it was hard for me. I just barely new how to use E-mail. I taught myself how to use the Computer and Internet. So there fore I know how hard it is to get started. I want to help you so you can sort of by pass the mistakes I made and focus on the good results.
There is some bad information out there too. Since we all want to make MONEY, some of us tend to get lost and just make Articles and sites for you to buy, buy, buy! It is Okay to buy some of the information but you have to be careful on what information you buy! So don't get carried away.
At first I too thought you just put Ad links in your site and get paid, DONE Deal. just put Ads all over the place. No Deal........ But I was getting the wrong information from the wrong people at the time. So I thought this was the way to do it. I want to spare you that mistake. The only have to pay information I will give you is the ones that I use or used. But right now we are going to start with any and all FREE information, Okay?

Another Free web site is BLOGGER
An example of a Blog in BLOGGER

My Blog explaining a 3-Step facial cleansing process on what I use to keep Acne and Rosacea under control.
Write about anything on BLOGGER
You don't earn money from Blogger BUT it is a great tool and also FREE. You can Blog about anything. It's like writing a book and getting published for free. You can add pictures, video's, links and their Templates are awesome. You can then link your blog into your other sites. Once you created your blog have your ( let's say Squidoo Lens) link to it and vise Versa.
Blogger also has Amazon. If you aren't an Amazon associate already, Blogger will help you set an account up step by step.
Pick a "Niche"
Think of what your good at or what you have experience in. For instance: You think you make the best "Pot-roast" for your family. Your recipe for it is so good. Then make a blog ( I'll tell you later how to get that) about your Pot roast ie: enter pictures of it, tell what kind of ingredients you use, do you bake it or slow cook it. You get the idea, right?
But now, don't get over whelmed as you go with too many Niches. Believe me once you find one, tons of them will come to mind and it will start to overwhelm you. So at first, stay on track with the first one. Later when you get a little better at it do more.
