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.

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”

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

Do you need an internet marketer to advertise your business?

Do you need an internet marketer to advertise your business?
Do you need an internet marketer to advertise all about your restaruant or business? This will allow you to get more customers and clients. I may know a good company. Let me know!

barry0912 answers:

Yes Obviously…You need a good Internet Marketer to market your business to survive in this competitive SEO world.

Now a days, there are plenty of Internet marketing companies available in the market. Choosing one among the best is a critical job for you.

Here are questions that you might consider asking the SEO Consultant before choosing them for your business…

1. What are your opinions in regards to Best Practices for the SEO – Search Engine Optimization / SEM – Search Engine Marketing industry? How does a company effectively compete online using traditional optimization strategies?

2. Can you assure us that the marketing strategies and methods that you are utilizing fall under the criteria of Best Practices for the SEO/SEM Industry? Can we assume that this means no penalties for our website? Penalties could include, but are not limited to; removal from the search engines or directories index.

3. How many search engine marketing campaigns have you been involved with? What was your role for those projects? How many are still active? How many are inactive? If inactive, why?

4. Are there any guarantees for top search engine positions? The answer to this question will depend on whether or not you choose a Pay Per Click (PPC/CPC) Program from Google, Yahoo!, Live or Ask.

Depending on the competitiveness of your industry, guaranteed top search engine placement may be difficult and expensive to maintain. We recommend an ROI analysis prior to making a commitment.

5. Do you have experience managing Pay Per Click (PPC), Cost Per Click (CPC), and other keyword bid management campaigns? What types of programs, if any, do you use for PPC bid management?

6. What is link popularity? What linking strategies would you use to increase link popularity for our website? Is this service part of the proposed price? What types of websites will you target for link opportunities? What other target audiences are available in a link strategy campaign?

7. What is Google PageRank and how does it affect our website(s)? How would you address improving our PageRank with Google, and other search engines that calculate the number of quality inbound links to our website?

8. What changes can we expect you to make to our website to improve our positioning in the search engines? Will these changes be visible? Will there be changes in the coding of our website?

9. What type of reporting (website statistics/metrics) will you provide to us? How often will you provide those reports? Do you provide live statistics? Will you provide consultation on how to interpret the reports so that we have a basic understanding of the statistics?

10. Do you offer ROI (Return On Investment) analysis? Is this in addition to your contract pricing? Have the consultant explain the process of how the ROI will be determined. This type of ROI tracking may require strict participation by the employees of your company. You may need to address internal procedures first, before being able to successfully track ROI for your website.

As an SEO Professional I hereby suggesting you an SEO Company who offers affordable organic SEO Services for your business.

SEO Services Group – http://www.seoservicesgroup.com/

SEO Services Group is a SEO company offering SEO services with a highly-qualified professional team at affordable rates with guaranteed results.

Mandy asks…

How can I make my first affiliate commission today?

Hi I have been researching and reading books on internet and affiliate marketing for about 7 months and I have not “earned” one affiliate commission. I would be so happy if some one could give me a step by step make your first commission today proven method. I want to make this my “full time Job” can anyone help?

barry0912 answers:

Most people don’t make it in affiliate marketing, gurus will often tell you that too often people quit when they were on the threshold of success.

The fundamental thing is to reach many many prospects either by putting a lot of time and sweat into developing a site that ranks well in the search engines or by floating a good size budget in advertising. Yea there are techniques to select the best markets and products and to convert the most visitors into buyers, the roughest conversion guides suggest a rule of thumb conversion estimate of 1%, if one in 100 visitors to your site clicked a banner and 1 in 100 of those actually made a purchase from the sales page, it would require 10,000 visitors to your site per commission. Hopefully your site is more efficient, but it reminds you that it’s all a numbers game.

Joseph asks…

What exactly is internet marketing? And what are some other good ways to make money online?

So my dad keeps bitching cuz he says we’re gonna lose the house blah blah blah and he wants some information on working from the computer. He’s not a computer genious at all, so owning his own site is out. And so is selling a product. Can anyone give me any information that can help me? Also, I’ve heard people say they’ve made a couple hundred a month online, how do they do that? Thanks for anything you can tell me.

barry0912 answers:

There are many forms of Internet marketing. But as the name implies, it involves marketing and therefore promoting and selling of products. A very popular form of internet marketing is known as affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing requires practically zero startup cost and all you need is a computer and Internet connection. Basically you get a commission for helping to sell other people’s products online. All you do is promote their products on the Internet and you get paid! It is that simple.

You do however have to put in some effort to find out how this business works. To motivate you, it is a known fact that successful affiliate marketers earn 4 to 5 figure sums consistently on a monthly basis.

Your next burning question would be “How do I get started on my very own affiliate marketing business?”

I asked myself this question a few years ago and that was how I got myself educated on the nooks and cranies of affiliate marketing. The best place to start is to find out who the gurus are in this field and learn how they become so successful. The top few affiliate marketers in the world are self-made millionaires. These gurus also provide step-by-step guides on how to do affiliate marketing successfully.

If you want to be successful in this field, you have to learn and be educated first. Thats the first step. Its the same for all businesses including affiliate marketing. However it is not as hard as you think if you know where to look for the right resources to lead you down the right track and also to prevent you from falling into the pitfalls that many newbie affiliate marketers make.

Some gurus in this field are people like Ewen Chia and Chris Rempel. They are almost a legend in themselves in this field. You would also want to check out the warrior forum where affiliate marketers all over the world gather and meet to discuss affiliate marketing strategies.

I have provided the links below for the warrior forum and other resources. If you want success then you have to put in plenty of action and dedication. Rewards follow effort. There is no other way.

Helen asks…

I am involved in Internet Marketing. How many emails can I send every day to my leads?

Email marketing is a rather large portion of my business so it is important to me to send out lots of emails every day.I want to know what is the sending limit

 solar movies

barry0912 answers:

Do you send a lot of emails to the same person or just many emails because you have many recipients? If it is the former, you might wanna cut down a bit. Being that persistant might be a bit irritating to some people. If it is the latter, you should be fine. If you’re worried, I suggest integrating a forum system onto your site as it has the option to send out mass emails to everyone registered. And since it goes through your web mail rather than one like yahoo or gmail, you’re less likely to get blacklisted.

I use email marketing too and the mass emails feature on my site works just fine for me. If you ever need any tips or want to learn some tricks for internet marketing, pay a visit to 404 reviews.

It has a guide book that explains a lot about email marketing among many other methods

What is the first thing internet marketing newbies do inorder to make money online ?

I was once a newbie and practically had no idea what to do when all the gurus around me were making tons of money. I said to myself, I must explore real the internet more intensively and help all the fresh, green & vulnerable newbies just like myself.

barry0912 answers:

Spend 2 or 3 months understanding online biz. Find the answer why only 5% internet marketer make serious money. Find out whether these 5% who makes money might has some contribution to the 95% that failed. I have an advise for you. Now trust has become so much important to make money online. If you trust the wrong people they will make money out of you but you will still not making money. I say this because i explore to many blogs and see what people are saying to some of the gurus about their problems in making money online. It is really sad to hear them said this and that. So if you consider to make money online seriously don’t ever spend money to buy anything before reading the vast free resources. Study those resources first. Good luck.

Nancy asks…

What is the best source for webmaster education and search engine optimization education that is affordable?

I have a new website at
http://www.specialhomeproducts.com
Check it out! I have many new home decor and office decor products, as well as great gift ideas for every special occasion….just need ideas as to how to market this without it costing an arm and a leg….am working on a limited budget. The idea is to MAKE money with it, NOT SPEND every dime I have just to get it marketed and ranked on the search engines. If anyone out there has resources for excellent internet marketing, that is reputable, NOT SCAMS, and is easy to understand for the beginner, let me know! I know amazon.com has several books you can get, such as “search engine optimization for dummies”, or “keywords for dummies”…may have to go with that for now, to save on my expenses…already put TOO much into this project to give up on it….getting several hits a day to the site, but still no significant sales….any help I can get out there would be greatly appreciated. debs3

barry0912 answers:

You can do it for free no problem but it will require a little time on your part.

First you need to get two books from the library:

Designing with Web Standards http://www.zeldman.com/dwws/

Don’t make me think http://www.sensible.com/buythebook.html

Reading and understanding these two books alone will put you ahead of 99.9% of webdesigners.

Then you need to read a free, reliable and up to date SEO tutorial. There are only two of these on the web that are considered worth reading.

Http://www.seomoz.org/article/beginners-guide-to-search-engine-optimization

http://www.seo-blog.com/tutorial.php

That’s it! Read, learn and implement.

Good luck!
