How to REALLY Succeed Online

Finding Online Success

So you want to know how to really succeed online? This post is for all of you newbie, bright-eyed marketers that believe there is some magic formula, some secret software that the rest of us use, to make money online. Yep, that’s right, I’m on one of my freakin’ rants again, but this one is absolutely true too!

Succeed Online With Effective Marketing

First step in succeeding online is that you realize that these programs and bells and whistle type products that will solve world hunger are not the most important commodity. You have to recognize that it doesn’t matter how good, or even how bad a product is, that it is YOUR ability to market that product that makes the difference.

You can take the best product out there right now and someone that knows exactly how to market and promote can take a crummy product and make a ton more than you, just because they know how.

Yep, if you know how to promote and market your program, product or service then you are going to make money, you are going to add members to your team, you are going to win at this online game.

Get Rid of the Negativity

IF, however, you don’t learn how to effectively market your stuff then the reverse is true and you will lose money like crazy. You will be one of those idiots that sits around and talks about how no one really succeeds online, that all the money making programs out there are nothing but scams and whine and whimper. The problem with that crap is that if you are successful in convincing others of this b.s. then you can do some real damage to someone that could truly use an online program to earn a living.

Brand Yourself an Expert

Second, you need to start marketing yourself. You need to be “the expert,” the one that people look to when they want some information on how to start promoting their opportunity. Hint here: Don’t come across as a new and inexperienced marketer. That’s not to say that when you are asked a question that you do not know the answer to you throw out a lot of b.s. Seriously, if you don’t know, you don’t know, but you can find out. Then you call the next person up or someone that YOU respect and ask them. Find the answer and follow up with the answer – gives you a lot more credibility!

Develop a Strong Work Ethic

So how do you market yourself and effectively market your opportunity? It’s a little thing I like to call work. You create blogs and write articles for you blog and the article directories, you produce videos, you create web 2.0 properties such as squidoo lenses, you write ebooks, make power point presentations. You post on craigslist – not with that same old worn out referral or affiliate link, but a link to your latest video telling people why they need to work with YOU – the expert!

Thought this all would be easy? Think again. Simple, yes, easy, no. The question really is, “Is this worth it?” That answer, for me, is very simple – Hell yes it’s worth it! I love this, I have a passion for it. I love to create material and I love to help others see the light so to speak and get them on the right track.

Is everyone going to succeed? No, they aren’t – for many different reasons, but the main reason is because they are not “coachable” and they give up when things get tough. This business is not for wimps, this business is for those that have a dream and commit to achieving that dream.

Just in case you missed it, that is how you really succeed online.

Establishing an Internet Marketing Business

establishing an internet marketing businessEstablishing an Internet Marketing Business Exposes Much Opportunity

I love Internet marketing and for those of you that are looking at establishing an internet marketing business, the time has never been better than it is now. A lot of folks may disagree with me on that last point, but I am convinced that at this particular moment in time establishing an internet marketing business is still one of the best opportunities that exists or has ever existed.

While establishing an internet marketing business does require persistent effort (what business doesn’t?) today there are more training sites and free training “boot camps” being offered by experienced marketers that will help you gain an understanding of how to promote your businesses and opportunities and will allow you to be able to compete with others as your business prowess grows.

Marketing, The Main Focus When Establishing an Internet Marketing Business

In this post I’m going to provide some information here that, hopefully will help the average person get an idea as to what is involved when they are establishing an internet marketing business. The business itself does not matter all that much especially at this point. Eventually we will really get into why I choose the businesses that I do and what a good online business is – just a hint: this depends on what YOU want!

establishing an internet marketing business

First let me assure you that you, or anyone, CAN do this. There is a specific method that I and others use to generate traffic to our blogs or our products or our programs and systems. The methods and techniques don’t care what color you are, how much money you have, whether you are a man or a woman, basically nothing matters other than your ability to educate yourself with these concepts and apply these ideas on a persistent and consistent basis.

Establishing an Internet Marketing Business Requires Work

If you are serious about establishing an internet marketing business you must understand that you are going to have to work. Yep, that’s right, you are going to have to work. For those of you that are interested in making a ton of money over the next two weeks, you probably just want to click on outta here because I don’t know how to do that. What I do know and what I am willing to share with you is how I generate twenty plus free leads every day and how I have replaced my income as a plumber within a very short period of time.

As for the specifics of establishing an internet marketing business, let’s assume you know nothing, you are fresh and you simply have a desire to learn. To be honest, I can’t show you  everything in this one blog post…just not possible. What I will do is show you what you need to learn first and where to find that training.

Keyword research. Before I do anything online, including finding a new domain name, I do my research. You see, we don’t want to have to create a whole new market for any business, product or service. Our jobs are to expose those existing markets and divert some of the traffic already coming to those markets. Not very hard when you learn how. The way that you do all of this is by finding out what people are consistently, month after month, typing into their computers, what they are searching for. Once you find that then it’s just a matter of creating content and joining programs that supply this information and/or products.

Establishing an Internet Marketing Business With Article Marketing

Write, write and then write some more. Next up in establishing an internet marketing business is by establishing a presence online. This is done with a blog and a lot of blog posting. You will need to do your keyword research to expose key phrases that get traffic, but do not have a ton of competition and create your content based on this research.

You will want to promote your blog posts with additional articles that you distribute throughout the Internet through the article directories like ezinearticles or articlebase. You may even want to subscribe to an article submission service as well.

You may want to promote your blog posts with videos that you place on video sites like youtube, daily motion and vimeo. This is also an excellent way to generate even more traffic because more and more people are going online to the video directories.

The key here, as with all online marketing, is that you remain focused on your goals and that you are consistent with your efforts. There are many different ways to market online and the above mentioned methods are just a few, but you want to become proficient with these first before moving to the next stages. For more information read the make money online anywhere blog or simply go to Google and search for additional online marketing techniques – the information is everywhere!

Greed and the Income at Home Scam

income at home scamIncome At Home Scam and Unethical Marketers

People coming onto the internet looking to start a business online do so for a multitude of reasons, but during tough economic times unethical developers and marketers come to the Internet trying to pawn off their income at home scam programs as well. These scam systems are often sold to the unsuspecting entrepreneur as one of a kind, quick money making programs that are nothing more than a way to take money from the customer.

Not All Money Generating Offers Are An Income At Home Scam

With all of the different income at home scam offers that are online at any given time how does one tell if the opportunity that they are looking for is legitimate or not? First thing I can tell you is that I have made a lot of money from programs that many consider a scam. I’ve generated an income from a multi-level marketing opportunity, affiliate and referral programs, advertising offers including AdSense on my blogs and even a cash gifting program. I say this because just about each and every one of these programs have been or still are called scams.

Learn To Market Effectively Online

Since I have experience at making money with all of the above methods I can tell you that the reason that many people will call them scams today is the fact that they do not know how to make money with them, basically they don’t know how to effectively market their programs online. Just because people don’t make money with a particular system doesn’t mean it is a income at home scam. You can argue that one and find many takers online, or you can go out and learn how to market your programs. Basically, if you can learn how to find existing markets of consumers then you can probably find a program for them and make some money.

An Income At Home Scam Is Usually All Hype

A typical, for real income at home scam doesn’t have as much to do with the mechanics of the program as it does with the hype surrounding it. I’m not saying there are not programs that are scams, some will argue that any gifting program is a scam though many will make the argument that they aren’t. With that said, there are many cash gifting programs that are set up like a Ponzi scheme or an illegal pyramid. Usually these types of programs are the type where an individual would pay for a “position” within a matrix. This is a stay away from type of system!

Greed Perpetuates the Income At Home Scam

Much of the time the problem with income at home scam business “opportunities” is that the developers and marketers of these systems are doing nothing more than taking advantage of a basic human flaw called greed. You see, there really are no get-rich-quick business that have ever existed, but in desperate times like some people may be facing in this down economy making money quickly can tug at the emotions. If you really want to know if your opportunity is legitimate or a generating income at home scam is to abide by the old adage that if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
