Can You Really Make Money Through Internet Marketing?
Some people have a hard time believing that anyone can make money online through Internet Marketing. This is understandable considering that there are many people out there who sell how-to-do Internet Marketing products that don’t work or use methods that are already outdated.
However, the truth is that there are many people out there who are earning money from the Internet and some are even earning $30,000 per month or more, as unbelievable as it may sound. We will not say that you’ll earn that kind of money if you use this or that method, however, we will say that it’s possible to earn that kind of money with the right knowledge and persistence.
Thus, if you’re having a hard time believing that you can earn money online, stop the disbelief and start taking action because, yes, you can earn money online. But don’t believe what they tell you that making money online is a get-rich-quick scheme because it’s not. Anyone who tells you otherwise is an outright scammer who should be in jail. To really make money online, you need to work at it.
The first step to earning money online is researching different niches that are profitable. The easiest way to do this is by going online on Amazon or eBay and looking at their Top 100 list. Researching on different diseases is also a great way to start and so is online dating.
Niche research involves market research and product research. Thus. when you research, make sure you segue into why people buy things and prefer this product over that product. More than anything else, knowing why people buy will make it easy for you to earn money online. If you know why they buy, you can easily tailor your writing so that you naturally pre-sell a product to them.
After your niche research, the next thing you need to do is build your own website. Some people will advise you to build your website on free sites like Blogger.com or WordPress, however, we think that if you’re going to do Internet Marketing for the long-term, you should think about building your own online properties.
Besides, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to build a website. In fact, you can build and maintain a one for less than $20 per month. A dot.com domain name costs around $10 per year while a basic hosting account at Hostgator costs less than $15 dollars.
While building a website is easy, promoting your website is hard and can cost you time or money (notice that we said “or” instead of “and” between time and money). There are several ways that you can promote your website. One is by doing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) or making your website rank on Google. The other is by advertising on the different ad networks. SEO takes time while advertising takes money.
If you use SEO, it could take months before you can make a sale, or a month if you’re lucky, however, it’s free to do. On the other hand, while advertising costs money, you could have your very first sale within 24 hours.
