If you are asking yourself “What Is Internet Marketing” it can be a really tough challenge to get the right answers. There is no Phd that you can work for that will set you up in the internet marketing world. It’s a case of learning as you go and kind of figuring it out as you go. Learning what internet marketing is can be hard work as everyone will be telling you that it involves ‘their’ method of marketing.
Understanding the concept behind internet marketing is where the secret it.
What Internet Marketing Is NOT!
Internet Marketing is not:
- A Scam
- Sending Spamming Emails
- Being A Con-Artist
- Building A Website
- A Get Rich Quick Scam
Some people are still struggling with that last statement. People come to learn what internet marketing is and have been ‘brainwashed’ into thinking that its some kind of get rich quick idea because of the sale letters they read. Internet marketing is a real business that can produce serious money for people who work hard at it and view it the same way they would if they were to open a ‘bricks and mortar’ shop on their local high street. It takes time and effort to build it up to something that can replace their offline income.
A real internet marketer is someone who sells products or services to people looking for them. It can be in the form of a company who work solely online, a web design company who get all their business from the internet right through to an affiliate marketer who is selling someone else’s products for a percentage of the profits.
The list of what is sold will go on and on and the ways in which they work is endless.
People are always saying that they cannot be an internet marketer because they have nothing to sell, they have no website and they have no skills that can help them. You will always hear people saying that ANYONE can become an internet marketer and whilst this is true in theory – internet marketing is not always something that will suit everyone.
Although internet marketing doesn’t care for gender, age or previous experience, you do need to be able to put in time and effort and have patience. For some, they will hit upon a great idea and roll with it enabling them to hit the big time within a short amount of time. For others though, it can be a long hard struggle to get where they want to be and they often quite before they get to where they want to be.
Being an internet marketer can be a very rewarding experience and at other times, the amount of self-descipline that is needed can be hard going. But if you are prepared to keep going and working something until you get the results that you want, then there is nothing stopping you from becoming a successful marketer.
