Hi there,

a warm welcome to the Internet Marketing World. If you are serious about becoming an internet marketer and want to learn all the ins and outs starting with the basics I recommend that you join a training or coaching program. There are loads of them available in the internet, most of them are quite expensive though. I myself sell a coaching program for beginners and for advanced internet marketers. I am in the business since 2004.

I also offer a completely free IM eCourse for Newbies on my blog www.seo-coaching.net. You will get about 30 lessons. They will teach you everything you need to start your own online business. You should read and follow the lessons on a daily basis. So you would be ready to start with affiliate marketing within one month.

I know how hard it is at the beginning and there are a lot of scams out there trying to get your money. Be careful!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on my blog. I will be happy to help you out.

All the best, Joachim

Michael asks…

Internet business?

What would be a good internet business worth starting?

In a place where there seems to be everything already, what needs or services (moral) could still be provided?

barry0912 answers:

One of the most common mistakes of beginners who want to start internet marketing is, they think that they need to learn more before they really start the business. It is true that there is a lot to learn! But unless you really start working, you will never get a chance to learn.

The Basics of Affiliate Business

An affiliate marketing business is about promoting (or recommending) someone else’s product(s) and earning commission on the sales.

The person/company, to whom the product belongs to, is called ‘the Merchant’ and ‘an affiliate’ is the one who promotes the product(s).

The process involved in recommending, selling the products, tracking the sales and paying/getting paid is called ‘the Affiliate Program’.

Your part as an affiliate is very simple. You have no commitment of selling and no targets. No investment, no convincing or no canvassing on your part. Your job is just to spread the word around, and send as many visitors (prospects) as possible to the merchant’s website. Then just wait for your commission.

Most of the merchants pay you per sale basis. Some pay you per lead basis and some of them pay per click basis (a ‘lead’ is generated when a visitor registers with the merchant or asks for some information, usually without making any payment, and when a visitor clicks on the link you provided and reaches the website of the merchant, a ‘click’ is achieved).

Let’s assume that you have put-in considerable amount of effort to send visitors to the merchant’s website. How will you know whether your visitors reached the merchant’s website? And when they reached, whether they bought the product(s)?

This process is called ‘tracking’. Tracking is normally done by the merchants either by installing their own ‘affiliate tracking software’ on their website or by subscribing to a company who provide ‘affiliate tracking services’.

There are few methods to track a sale (or action). The common method is to save a small file called a ‘cookie’ (with your ‘affiliate id’ in it), in the computer of the visitor. And from that time onwards, whatever action he/she takes (like registering or buying) is tracked and accordingly the agreed commission is credited to your account.

The ‘affiliate tracking companies’ (Affiliate Program Providers or APP’s) provide a common platform and help the merchants to find ‘qualified affiliates’ and the affiliates to find ‘honest merchants’.

To start promoting a merchant’s product(s), you need to register directly with a merchant, if they have their own software or with an ‘affiliate tracking company’. If you are registering with a tracking company, you can then find suitable products and merchants and then promote them.

When a desired (or agreed) action has taken place (a click or lead or sale), you will be credited the agreed amount and will be paid (by the tracking company or by the merchant if you registered directly with them) when you have accumulated the minimum payable amount (as agreed).

Please help!
Thankyou

The internet would not exist without computers. The internet has expanded venues of companies to market their products with little up front costs. It has enabled those starting out to market products without the large start up costs associated with a store front.

Advertise from a customer perspective with a testimonial on how great the product is. Also, only questions are supposed to be posted in Yahoo! Answers, so search for someone asking for the kind of service that you provide. Otherwise, you could post on public forums of related interests.

Paul asks…

Is it better that one reads a book on the basics of Internet marketing?

Will this save them time and money?
Will it help them avoid making costly mistakes?
What are some books you suggest?

barry0912 answers:

Hi Christopher,

I would suggest that you go straight to the source- online!

I have been learning internet marketing for the last 5 months or so, and I looked into buying books, and I was disappointed with the selection- the problem is, the field is continuously evolving!

A book can teach you the very basics, but you’ll end up paying for information you can find for free.

My advice is to follow the experts, the gurus- Do a search for a specific topic you’re interested in, and you’ll get tons of specific blog entries and articles to help you out- the nice thing about internet marketing is how active and growing the community is.

If you already have a site, it’s great because you can experiment as you go and see what suits your needs best. If you’re starting from scratch, consider getting a free blog or other personal site that allows you to manage content personally. Otherwise you may feel lost, and the truth is, you don’t need a textbook- the key to the Internet is, it’s interactive. Textbooks can never compare.

Plus, you’ll often get more actual information per paragraph than most books will offer.

Depending on your goals, there are many ways to market online. You have to start with a site, and you should learn some basics on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) (I wrote a blog entry that offers some resources for beginners, I will add it below) – beyond that you have tons of options.

– Write original articles and submit to article sites (they provide good exposure!)
– Create videos and post them to YouTube and other video sites
– Write a blog and get it out there! (plenty of free sites)
– Make friends in the social network space (i.e. Sites like MySpace, Facebook and Twitter) that will help you spread the word
– Record a Podcast and publish to different podcasting sites
– Visit other sites, forums, etc and post comments where you think your product or service could benefit the person
– If you’re strictly looking for traffic, don’t be afraid of paid advertising or sponsorships

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Robert asks…

What kind of jobs are out there for people who study psychology?

How many years of schooling and what jobs are there for people who were to major/ get a mastors/ phd in psychology and how much do they pay?

barry0912 answers:

I noticed that no one mentioned anything involving consumer psychology, which was my focus in college. I paired my psychology major with a business minor. This opened up jobs in consumer research and areas of marketing and development. You would be amazed at some of the doors a psychology degree can open. There are also jobs in the area of Human resources and social work that require psychology degrees. If you want to do consumer research you are going to want a master’s degree. Dr. Blake at Cleveland State University in Ohio is doing global research on internet shopping behavior. If this interests you the program is worth checking out. Be forewarned that this program only accepts about 6 people a year into the program.

Ken asks…

What is the easiest to attain, the most profitable Internet business one can start today? any ideas?

We feel that almost everything has been thought off on the Internet…it is almost like “internet business anxiety”

barry0912 answers:

Hi,
Yes, you can make money as an online Affiliate Marketer. I’m making money online as we speak. Have started Affiliate Marketing earlier this year in March. I was making about $100 to $200 per week. Then as I learn from other Super Affiliate Marketers out there…I started making more. As of August 2009, I’m earning over $1,000 / week as an Affiliate Marketer. The learning curve is different for each person, but if you take the time to learn about affiliate marketing, then the rewards will be there for you.
The best way of making money online without spending a lot money is to be an Affiliate Marketer. You don’t need a website nor do you need any products. As an affiliate marketer you will market products for various companies that will pay you a commission for selling their products. (Commission is usually from 50% to 75%). So you don’t need a website; you don’t have to call anyone to sell them a product; you don’t need to join any mlm; You just need to refer people to the site of their interests and earn a commission.
Where do you learn all about these products? Check out www.clickbank.com . This is a market place to find vendors who are looking for affiliates to market their products. It costs nothing to sign up with them and nothing to start.
There are so many online methods you can use to drive traffic to these various sites you are promoting. Some of these methods include: blogging, Pay Per Click (PPC), Article Writing, eMail Marketing, and much more. To learn more about these methods, I recommend the beginners to learn from experienced Affiliate Marketers such as Ewen Chia, Michael Jones, Mack Michaels, Bobby Walker, Adell Chowdhry, and Kris Trujillo. These are some of the true Affiliate Marketers out there with great success.
Only down side is cost of advertising and getting the words out. However, this is the only type of business where you can start part time and one day earn as much as your FT job. FYI..,I started this part time 6 months ago and within 6 months..I’m earning more PT then my regular FT job. Crazy..,but true, How much you put into, you’ll get out of it as well.
In addition, I also recommend learning from the Super Affiliate Marketers out there that can eliminate your time and efforts by teaching you how to market products for free and the various methods that are available for you to use. You can find more information on Affiliate Marketing at www.Super-Affiliates-Club.com.
Save yourself time and invest in yourself and learn and you’ll soon make money online. You can start making $100 to $200/day within the next 3 days, but you have to start today and learn. It can be frustrating, but the learning curve is shorter when you learn from an Affiliate Marketer guru. Yes..you can start even today after reading this post. It sounds crazy, but it’s all true.
Here’s my recommended steps to online success — 1) Learn from an Affiliate Marketer 2) go to ClickBank.com and find a product to promote. Very easy, but takes a little effort to learn the secrets of the gurus.

Good Luck,
Tony
