Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Steven asks…

Any real jobs out there my dad can do from home on Google or Yahoo?

I see these kind of jobs advertised sometimes but they seem bogus? He’s okay at home but doesn’t get around much anymore. Still sharp and etc. Needs extra cash.

Perhaps the majority of money making offers on the internet are scams of some sort. Most people who try to make money on the internet fail, the worst may be the surveys, paid to click, shopping rewards thing that I doubt anyone can make a living from. That one fake new blog showing the mom making some $10k part time, used to say posting links for Google before they sued 50 such sites.

If you can write you can find web site article writing freelance jobs that mostly pay $3 to $5 though a writer qualified to write for as an expert for major sites might get more like $10 – $75 per 500 word article.

Someone with unique knowledge might be able to write a blog that eventually, it really has to be an exceptional site with regular new additions to get search engine ranking and enough visitors to earn a bit of advertising revenue. One can start with a free blog host like Blogger.com

A small percentage of people who try affiliate marketing actually succeed, some do quite well, having web development knowledge, sales experience and good management skills would have a better chance.
Many Internet Marketing rookies hang out at Warriorforum.com member written WSO tutorials sell for relatively little money.

I am always suggesting the one looks into freelance marketplace sites as a way to earn money more immediately, these include freelancer.com and odesk.com, while more geared for technicians, you also can find writing projects and simple seo tasks, while there is worldwide competition, a native English writer has a big advantage. One of the easiest to get into is freelancer.com it’s also prone to having lower paying projects and wild west lawlessness, older established sites like elance or vWorker have tighter standards and may have membership fees to keep out the riffraff.

There are also micro task sites that pay small change for a few minutes work, popular with 3rd world countries, some in the U.S. Do them instead of crossword puzzles, the original was created by Amazon, the online store to ‘automate’ tasks a computer couldn’t do, like pick the better of 2 pictures, they named mturk.com after the 18th century Mechanical Turk chess playing machine that had a man hidden inside, shortTask and microworkers have similar micro tasks, some individual jobs are a bit shady, like signing up for product trials, doing surveys, but you get to choose which tasks to perform.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

John asks…

Do you live in one of the areas being hit hard by theives stealing plants?

I do. It has been all over the news here. Theives are jacking flower beds like crazy in my area. And I woke up this morning to find all of my rose bushes gone. Plants? I would have never thought that they’d be targeted. What about y’all?

barry0912 answers:

No, fortunately I do not. I suspect your stolen rose bushes will show up at a flea market or other seller’s venue. Personally, I’d be playing detective and when I’ve found my plants, I’d call the police immediately. Of course, the thieves may be selling them on one of the internet sites, too.

Sorry you suffered such a loss. I’d be steaming mad!

Where do you live? Where is this happening?

James asks…

What is the best book to purchase for a beginner to learn how to purchase stocks?

I would like to buy stocks over the internet, but I have no clue on what stocks to buy or how to do it.

barry0912 answers:

I am assuming that you are using “limited funds” to start “investing over the internet”…..but I am VERY CONCERNED with the “I have no clue on what stocks to buy..or how to do it”. Honestly, you are “exactly” the type of person who should NOT be trading/investing on your own…as another answer before me said “find a reputable professional”…it doesn’t matter what company he/she is with…their skill/knowledge and ethics are what matter most!!!

However…to answer your question…there are a HUGE number of books to “purchase”…..but if you’re posting on here…and you want to trade over the internet…USE THE INTERNET for what it was invented for…sharing knowledge!

BOOKS don’t “interact” with you…can’t let you “test drive” sample portfolios…backtest potential portfolios…learn about many different strategies/products, etc …..and cost you nothing more than you are already using for internet access.

Sooooo……Here is a “sample” of what I recently shared with a similar Yahoo Answers member……

This will be a fairly extensive listing of where to go to learn about stocks, bonds, personal finance, economic issues(stock related), etc etc etc……only because you sound like you earnestly want to know.

For STOCK/Mutual Fund/Options/Finance-related information:

**www.kiplingers.com (more “personal finance” than stocks…but that’s critical in life too…kiplinger newsletter and/or Kiplinger Personal Finance magazine!)
**www.fool.com (classes to sign up for, free, etc)
**www.seekingalpha.com (better for the “technical analysis” crowd)
**www.whispernumbers.com (professional and non-pro opinions…group think?…play it to your advantage?)
**www.yahoo.com (finance section…good site (that’s free) for tracking (delayed) your stock portfolio)
**www.msnbc.com (current “in-the-news” stuff)
**www.morningstar.com (mostly for funds…stocks too)
**www.dismalscientist.com (more MACRO-economic…for those who want to know “why, how…” things happen)
**www.888options.com (Great Options site, free options DVD and classes!)
**www.optionsmonster.com (Options site)
**www.CBOE.com (THE Options exchange, “Learning Center”/”Options Institute”=free classes!)
**www.lightbulbpress.com (easy to understand, quick read, booklets etc.)
**www.street.com (Cramer’s name to fame! “trader, not investor” related advice mostly!)
**www.horsesmouth.com (a stock/stock market barometer!)
**www.bankrate.com (good resource on rates, and much more!)

And…sooooo many more… I’ll save “financial Calculator” websites (for everything you can imagine, and many that you can’t) for another time!!! Oh, these are “off the top of my head”…..there are many others that I’ve gone “blank” on…and may add later, after I check my work computer (since I’ve saved the shortcuts on several, I don’t remember the actual addresses!…silly me!!!)

Study hard…don’t lose your money “guessing”…study/read first…then take a “gamble?” (pun intended)…and/or find an above average/ethical professional to do the work for you.

***Oh, yeah….all of the above information should be FREE for all/overwhelming majority of the information…AND “Most traders/investors” don’t know about them. Also, NEVER buy those newsletters, etc you’ll get “pitched”…use these sites…and think for yourself…or hire a “personal” advisor who knows you and what your goals, needs, etc are.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Services

Carol asks…

Where is the best place to advertise for Virtual Assistant Services?

I have recently set up a virtual assistance company with a team of 5 virtual assitance who can do literally anything which is web based or pc based. The problem, where do i advertise and how do i market for this service. How do find clients?

barry0912 answers:

Marketing is key to your service, as with any business. As you’re geared for working on the web and with PC’s, make full use of the internet for marketing. Make sure your site is optimised for the search engines. Become involved in sites/blogs/directories that relate to your target market.

Networking groups are a good way of meeting business people who need help with the things that a Virtual Assistant can do.

Are you UK based? Business Link and Chambers of Commerce both run regular events.

Please feel free to contact me for information on other groups in the UK

Good luck!

David asks…

What is the greatest obstacle to finding an internet marketing mentor?

One of the things that the majority of folks most often misunderstand about finding an internet mentor to help them out is they tend to think they have to pay enormous sums of money for a consultant, a coaching program or some other such thing…do you find this to be the case?

barry0912 answers:

There are really two sides to this coin with a variety of hungry vultures hanging out on each.

FREE ADVICE
Ever hear the old adage that you get what you pay for? To a certain extent it’s true. However, you will indeed find many sites that offer free advice. The problem is, unless your a smart Internet Marketer your not going to know the good advice from the bad. What’s worse, since you are needing the advice it’s likely that you have not gained all the wisdom you are looking for yet. This ends up being a vicious circle with no real end.

That’s why SEO & Beyond provides a free website analysis for anyone who asks (at least they do as of this writing). They believe that doing so goes beyond advice into actively participating in the lives of those who are looking to use their service.

You can check out more about that at the following link.
===> http://search-engine-optimization-and-beyond.com/A-simplemachinesforum/index.php?topic=36.0
I was quite pleased with the review they gave my http://commit2fit.info website.

PAID ADVICE
If you are going to have someone train you to be a successful Internet Marketer, then find someone willing to give you some type of guarantee.

“If our system doesn’t work for you, then you don’t pay a dime!”

It’s a gutsy approach to be sure. But it goes beyond the idea of pay us all your money and you will be a success approach. With this method you don’t know if you are being sucker punched or not and all you have to show for it in the end will be absolutely nothing.

I do know that there are indeed many people out there willing to provide a ton of advice if you pay them. I don’t know if anyone has the guts to work by the above approach. If I did I would probably sign up for their course in a second. When paying for a mentor or what not the heavy burden for success should be on the shoulders of the one providing the assistance rather than the one paying the bill.

THE MORAL
Pay for a mentor if and only if the mentor believes in their services enough to give you an awesome guarantee otherwise stick with the free advice; or better yet free website reviews.

Your Questions About Low Cost Airfare

George asks…

how do i get low cost airfare to oralando fl?

Disney world, family trip, buget , orlando fl, airfare

barry0912 answers:

The last 3 times I went to Orlando, I got my tickets through cheaptickets.com.

A really good site to try is airfarewatchdog.com, they show deals of the day and compare the prices among different sites. It’s also very useful because you can see if there are any specials going on in your particular city or state.

Betty asks…

low cost international airfare?

I am a soldier stationed in Germany looking for a cheap place to find international airline tickets. I obviously dont make that much money, so i am trying to save as much as i can. Ive checked out basically every airline site, but they are all pretty much the same. The majority of the ticket cost is for the extra taxes, any ideas how to lower those too. Thanks for any help!
Im flying from Frankfurt to Charlotte, NC or Charleston,SC, whichever is cheaper, from 5JUN-23JUN.

barry0912 answers:

USAir has it for only $748 r/t total right now. I believe they also do 5% discount, on the fare before taxes, for active duty military. This is FRA-CLT nonstop on the 5th, and connecting from CLT via PHL to FRA on return. Best and cheapest to book direct from http://www.usair.com

I checked everywhere for you, and apart from Ebookers having it for $1 cheaper (with no military discount, by the way, and with an extra layer of hassles if you need service on the ticket), getting this price direct from USAir is the best option I see.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Chris asks…

How is the best way to get Internet exposure for a group of restaurants to be seen and advertised online?

Need internet marketing campaign ideas or suggestions for ways to advertise or gain exposure to surrounding communities that restaurants are in or near.

How can these restaurants be marketed online to people inexpensively but effectively?

barry0912 answers:

Personally, I am convinced that any good Restaurant does not need to advertise (at least not very much) .. In my (admittedly limited experience) the best way to find a good Restaurant is to receive a personal recommendation and then go visit it ..

From the outside you can determine the following :-
What type of area is it in ? (opposite the nightly drunken pub fights ?)
How popular is it ? (compered to the one next door) – the good ones are soon packed out by ‘word of mouth’ ,.. The bad ones always advertise a lot and are always half empty … (until everyone in the local area has been there once .. And then they go bust)
What sort of ‘clientele’ is it appealing to ? (loud pop-music & lap-dancing ?)
What’s the menu choices ? (& prices ?)

Having made the decision to go in, it’s really then all down to the quality of food …

Having said that, I have occasionally used Business Directors to look up ‘take-aways’ on the web ..

Paul asks…

What do Internet marketers do about shipping?

When starting my own Internet marketing business online, what do I do in order to ship the products? Do I have to ship them out myself? What do Internet marketers do about shipping products to customers?

Thank you!

barry0912 answers:

I you are selling your own physical products online, then you organise shipping. If you are selling through dropshipping then you just include shipping in you markup price and your drop ship supplier organises shipping.

However, the majority of internet marketers operate through “affiliate marketing”. Where you promote somebody else’s products through an affiliate link and receive a commission per sale. The owner of the product organises everything. Affiliate sites include, Amazon.com (small commission), Clickbank.com (up to 75% commission, no shipping as all products can be downloaded). Paydotcom.com (same as Clickbank.com), JVZoo.com (up to 100% commission on front end products i.e. The vendor makes their profit on an upsell)

Hope this helps

Mary asks…

How can I successfully market my network marketing home business?

I am a single mother of 1 and tired of working in corporate america. I want to learn how to market my Tahitian Noni network marketing business without targeting my friends and family. I want to come up with a great marketing idea that will not only help my business but others as well. Any suggestions?

barry0912 answers:

Study simple internet marketing skills and use those techniques to generate your own leads for your business.
Hassling friends and family is not an effective way to build your business. These old tactics are responsible for the majority of failure in the industry.
Participating in forums that relate to your business helps to generate business leads. You can meet new people by providing information of value without spamming and put info about yourself in your profile page.
Submitting articles that are not salesy on the net are also great. The better the value of content, the more people will seek more info from you.
I built a website that is independent from the company I represent. This is also a great way to meet new people if you build the site right. One that is easily found on the major search engines.

Best Regards!
