The most frequently asked questions I am asked about internet marketing:
Internet marketing is one of the most interesting activities performed on the computer that everyone hardly knows anything about…well except maybe for us online marketers. 🙂 That’s why there are so many questions for someone who is looking at it as a way to make some money online.
To help answer some of the questions you may have about internet marketing, here is a list of the top questions that I get asked:
What is internet marketing?
Internet marketing is simply the promotion and selling of products, either yours or someone else’s online. It’s also commonly referred to as online or affiliate marketing and you make money or a commission when someone buys or product or buys someone else’s product through a link you have posted on a site on the web.
Who can be an internet marketer?
YOU can be an internet marketer…anyone can be an internet marketer. Simply having access to the internet is all you need to get started.
How long does it take to get started?
You could literally post a link on a site on the web today and potentially make a sale.
What does it cost to get started?
There are a wide variety of free platforms that can be used to promote products. Depending on the avenue you choose for promoting, you could actually get started at no cost to you at all.
I don’t have a product and don’t know what to sell. Is that okay?
Not having a product is not a problem as all. You can begin making money online by promoting other people or companies’ products. Clickbank and Amazon.com both offer products that you can promote and make money online by doing so.
I want to build a website but don’t know how. Can you help?
While setting up a website is not necessary for internet marketing, it is highly recommended in order to take your marketing to the next level. I am available to help with any information I can. Here is something to consider though. Wealthy Affiliate membership includes free hosting, pre-built sites, and extensive tutorials and on-line help for creating very effective and successful marketing campaigns. There is no other resource on the web that provides as many tools and resources as Wealthy Affiliates for the same price. Otherwise, outside of the Wealthy Affiliate you will need a website host provider, website creation software, and possibly some website creation assistance. Plus, additional research may be necessary for keywords and anything else that may come up that you have questions on.
Clickbank doesn’t accept people from my country as an affiliate.
One of the great things about affiliate marketing is that there are a number of options available to become an affiliate. If Clickbank doesn’t work for you. Here is a list of other options you can choose from.
Who are you and why should I believe you?
This is actually one of the most valid questions anyone could ask. Truth be told, I’m just like you. I’m not an internet marketing guru, nor do I have some time of online marketing degree. I started out making money online by trial and error. I did a lot of research and investigation, reading tutorials, watching videos, and learning everything I could learn. I wrote a page about me here. I found out the huge benefits of internet marketing and it worked for me. I want to be able to help other achieve success and make their lives better as a result of this opportunity in the same way it has done for me.
