Internet marketing in a nut shell is a simple and easy idea. What can make it difficult is the lack of the correct 'how to' knowledge. Oh there are thousands of Ebooks written by the so called Guru's. All claiming to have the secret to overnight riches. But, here is the shocker. There is no such thing as instant online wealth!
To have any measure of success in network marketing you will need to prepare yourself for the long Haul. It will take time and a lot of effort. You will also need a good helping of determination and perseverance to keep you going. So, if you are by nature a very lazy person. Then internet marketing is not for you.
The first decision you need to make is how do you intend to earn. Will it be with the creation of your own website, marketing your own product, joining some or other Multi-level-marketing program or by selling other peoples products.?
Selling other peoples products for a commission is by far the most simple way to start network marketing. The number one resource for this method of marketing is Click bank. This is a good place to find products to sell, and membership is free. There are thousands upon thousands of products to choose from and the commissions paid are reasonably high, so you efforts will be well rewarded.
As selling other peoples products is the easiest way to start in internet marketing, I am going to explain to you the steps that you need to follow to sell other peoples products.
Firstly, you will need to select a product. It can be any product that offers a reasonable commission. As a rule of thumb, I would not go for any product paying less then $10.00 commission. Important! DO NOT! select products directed at the internet marketing field. Although it is the highest paid market. There is just too much competition in this field. Rather focus on products from other niche areas such as health, entertainment etc.
Once you have the product, you need to decide on how you are going to sell it. There are two basic methods, either by paid advertising with Adwords at Google. The only disadvantage with Google Adwords is that the ads can, if not done correctly, cost you a bundle.
The second method would be to do the marketing from your own website. For the long-term benefits that a website offers. I would go for the own website option. So this is where I will concentrate the next step.
Now comes the tricky part. You need to decide on a number of keywords that are linked to the product. (words that people type in the search engine to find the product). There are lots of free keyword suggestion tools available to help you in this area. A basic search would guide you to them.
Next you will design and build your website around the product and related keywords. Once again, there are free website designing tools available that make the task very easy for the newcomer to web design.
once this step is finished, you will need to register a domain name for your website and also find a hosting company, through which you will present your website to the world. There are lot's of reasonable companies out there that offer these services.
And lastly, you will need to attract customers to your site who will buy the product or products that you are marketing. There are a number of ways that this can be achieved, but the most productive method is by writing and submitting articles to Article Directories.
In this article I have shown you the basic steps to follow to set up your own business. However, it is not what you do but how you do it that will dictate your level of success. Knowledge is power and with some knowledge in the key areas. You will discover that Simple Easy Network Marketing is possible.
