Is Internet Marketing For You?

I know you are reading this because you really want to earn online but before proceeding on your internet marketing journey, you should pause for a while and contemplate.

I would like to remind you that it may not be a smooth journey, there may be bumps along the way and you might find yourself almost giving up. Ask yourself, "Why am I doing this?"

Your primary reason might be to earn but in the long run, you might find yourself desperate because you are not getting the results you expected. Internet marketing is not for everyone. I have encountered people who gave up because they were not able to earn online.

By now, I expect that you have read the Internet Wealth Guide. If you haven't, please click here.

Reading this would enable you to have a feel of what to expect on your journey. After reading it, what did you feel? Did you feel that you can succeed in this endeavor? Did you get excited on the amount of money you can earn? Oh no. While money can be your motivation, it is not always good to make money your motivation because there will be a point in time where you will just quit if you did not make any money.

This is a very important part of your journey, CHANGE your mindset first.

When you wake up, you should think about how many people you can help with your articles and the rest will follow.

Be ready to fail and you will need a lot of patience in this journey because this is not a get-rich quick scheme. 

Getting Started in Your Internet Marketing Journey

There are numerous ways on how to earn online but and one of these is through affiliate marketing.
               Affiliate marketing is promoting other people’s product or service and you’ll get a commission when people purchase under your affiliate ID. Does it sound complicated?
             At first, you might think this is complicated especially if you are a complete newbie. That is, you don’t have any knowledge about web development so it helps that you get a little background about web designing or HTML or how websites work. Most of the successful people that I come across are those that have very good knowledge about web designing but this does not mean that you can’t succeed if you don’t know anything. It is never too late to learn a new skill or if you don’t have the time to learn about all the technical stuff, there are lots of people who can do the work for you, at a cost. You can hire the best people at oDesk.

                When I was starting to learn about all these stuff, I got overwhelmed with the information that I got. I ended up wasting my time reading all those guides/ebooks/blueprint that just say the same thing. In order for you to prevent this, you have to focus and don’t get tempted with all those offers. Don’t enter your email address in every internet marketer out there that promises to help you earn online because some will just bombard you with offers that will not yet be useful to you as a beginner. Focus first on the basics.

                In the meantime, please unsubscribe to all those mailing lists that you have opted in so that you won’t get distracted along the way.

                The next post will deal on how to have the proper mindset.
