Learn What You Need to Know Before Investing Money Online
Internet marketing can create Riches beyond belief if you are successful.
It is difficult to be successful without the right advice. You can’t buy the good advise in a software program or eBook peddled on ClickBank.
What you need to do is spend some time doing a little research and getting an Internet Marketing education.
I am going to discuss what I have found to be my experience after over a year of trying to make money using internet marketing and give you a few free tips.
If you are just starting out trying to make money on the internet, the first thing you do, before you buy anything, is to set up a free Google website or blog or a free WordPress blog to gain some experience and do some research.
What you need to learn and where you can learn it for free.
Your goal is to educate yourself and learn what Internet Marketing (IM) really is.
Anything that exists, whether it is a digital book, a Kindle book or a Watch or a TV can be sold with Internet Marketing. So go to Google and do a search for Internet marketing, making money on the internet, earning money on the net, etc.
But! Don’t buy any programs. I have a lot of Free eBooks and Programs that I will give you. Most of the information on building sites with WordPress and blogger has been around a long time. It just gets a new name and a prettier box and a higher price.
It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, what matters is that you have an idea for making money and think you can do it on the internet.
Now the Real Facts about Internet Marketing.
If you are the raw beginner, there are some things you need to learn and one of them is that it is very unusual to make money on the internet using strictly free sites or auto responders on the net.
By this I mean free websites, free auto responders (a service to send emails to your customer) and the like. Just for practice in creating a blog you could sign up with the free WordPress where if you apply yourself you can learn almost all of the technical things you need to know about setting up a blog.
Google also offers free websites and free blogs. Just keep in mind that some of the tools used in either of these sites will be somewhat different than the real site you will set up later, after doing your research and free training.
Since WordPress is a great place to start, do a search on Google for WordPress and you will find a link to WordPress.com which provides free sites. Keep in mind these are Not commercial sites and your site will be banned if you put affiliate links on it to sell products.
It is SIMPLY a great learning tool that you can use for Free. You can put links to another site, so here is your link to Free WordPress. Just so you will know, don’t buy a domain name and use this WordPress. You will want WordPress.org for your OWN real site, down the road on a paid hosting account like Host Gator.
Next on this List of Things to Learn About Are Keywords!
Before you set up your WordPress Blog, be sure to do some searches with Google and learn about keywords and how they relate to whatever it is you want to sell on the internet.
Here is a link to a page from Google that explains exactly what Key Words are: Aw Shucks, Here is the page!

You can write and post on your free WordPress site , just to see if your keywords are working, maybe even get people to sign up, but this is a Marketing University for free….so no selling!
What you are trying to learn is how to sell on the internet and also learn how to set up a WordPress site…….
One of the most important things I have come to realize is that Website Traffic is a great hurdle. If you don’t have traffic, you can’t sell anything.
Work on developing an email list from day 1
Another even more important thing is that you must, from the first day you go online, work to develop an Email list.
The Reason is this: If you have an email list of people interested in what ever it is that you want to sell, you can use your auto responder to send them emails with information about your product…whether it is your product that you have or one you have found and like and think others could benefit from buying.
If you have an email list this means that you are not dependent on just website traffic for marketing.
Treat your subscribers and readers with Respect. Value them as a Friend.
Keep in mind, I have read in numerous programs about using emails to market that it often takes from 5 to 7 times viewing your offer before many people will buy.
Your results also depend on what you are selling, your talent in writing attention grabbing emails that interest your subscribers, describing the features and benefits in such a way as to arouse desire for the product and result in Action….which is to click the buy button!
Don’t Spam your subscribers! Always use an auto responder company that requires that they opt in because it protects you and your list from being banned and with new legislation some hefty fines. If you use an auto responder that requires subscribers to verify that they have signed up, it protects you and your list.
Also don’t overload their email box with numerous emails, I prefer maybe two per week which is low, many marketers will send one in the morning and one in the afternoon, but I often unsubcribe from over zealous marketers as their information isn’t usually worth the aggravation of a Filled Email Box.
What is Free that you can use now besides WordPress and Google Blogger
Here is a link you will like, you can send up to 12,000 emails per month, to a list of 2,000 or less subscribers absolutely Free. After that level is reached, you ought to be making money and able to afford their monthly rates which start at $10.00. Take a look after you finish reading this article!..Click Here Note No Affiliate links allowed in the emails that you send…..
They have a lot of easy to follow training that will help you get set up and start writing emails for your lucky subscribers!
Plus since auto responders work in the same way, this training will acquaint you with how to set up any auto responder.
Some things to do before you Start!
Get yourself several Gmail accounts and use them for this endeavor or you will look up one day and have your personal email Inbox filled with hundreds of emails and your spam file in the thousands!
Create one Gmail account to subscribe to programs, you can make folders or labels and keep the emails they send with your account information in them: eg. password, username and URL to the site of the program.
I also have one called Pay Pal that I keep all emails from PayPal when I pay for a program or service. Also have one for Click Bank and Click Bank Refunds, (you will learn why)!
Are you now Completely Confused?
If you are now completely confused, Here is a program that I keep on my hard drive and reference occasionally because I used it to start from scratch.
It has the Basics to building a website, setting up hosting, monetizing, setting up an auto responder…learning ftp, a little bit of html…the list is endless. All things needed for an Internet Marketing Business.
In some of the videos,WordPress has changed now and looks different, but the theory is still the same. The rough basics of what you need to learn are there and I can recommend the maker highly. He is interested in your success because it means more success for him!
There is a link to this program on the page on this site “Creating a Blog with John Thornhill” I received a $497.00 program for $19.99 and I just checked and this price is still good!
As John Thornhill explains in one of his videos, he is a marketer and wouldn’t be doing his job if he didn’t offer you something to buy!
My only advise is buy ONE PROGRAM at a time, go through it completely, then if you need something go and buy it from someone you trust and respect.
Warning: this is no “Click a button and make $5000.00 while you are sleeping”. Those programs are a waste of money….just read some reviews (other than the ones selling from an affiliate link) I learned the hard and $$$expensive way!
I use Host Gator for my sites for two reason….reasonable cost, can add as many domains as I want, but buy their Baby package…you can add endless Domains. This link contains a valuable discount link which you can use for 1 month, 1 year or as many years as you want to sign up for and will you save quite a bit of money: Host Gator Discount.
Think I have links to both Aweber and Host Gator on http://SkipperWorks.Info/
Aweber allows you to try it out for one month for $1.00. Here is a link to Aweber if you want to look at it, Look and See. You probably don’t need them right now so Bookmark this page so that when you do get ready, you can find them here.
Just so you will know, any of these links will have my affiliate information in them, so if you actually buy something using them, I will sometimes receive a commission.
Here is another No Cost to you Suggestion. If you haven’t read or investigated enough yet to find out the answer to this question:
what do you need to make money using the internet?
I’ll give you a clue.
Most Experienced Internet Marketers will tell you two things: Traffic and an Email list.
Their answer inevitably includes having an email list of subscribers interested in the same thing you are interested in.
Their thinking is that as long as you have an email list of subscribers who are interested in what you are interested in….you have your own traffic that is not dependent on Google or search engines.
So give some thought to including building a list right along with building a blog or website.
If you just can’t wait and need to spend some money here is a link to a John Thornhill coaching program where you get a $497 program for a one time price of $19.99.
I’m still working on completing this program, it starts at the very beginning (all those things I listed above) the only things I might advise you to do is use NameCheap to get your domain name and privacy then direct it to your hosting company (I use Host Gator) read and choose your own!
To successfully work on this coaching program you will need a domain and hosting and an auto responder (you can use the free one until you build up a list of over 2000 subscribers) link is above. Other than items listed you can keep it low cost and simple.
Best Advise, get the basics either completely free or John Thornhill’s coaching program and get your feet pointed in the right direction to make some Internet Marketing Money!
Good Luck and Much Success.
Free Advertising and sites for swapping information. Most have Free options that you can use and upgrade later, when you make some money!
