Internet Marketing

There are numerous ways to make money through Internet Marketing.  What you’re going to need is a product to sell, whether it be a physical product or a digital product of information.

Let’s say you create garden gnomes, in all shapes and colors.  Some are happy some are sad and a few are just plain creepy looking. Now you want to make money off your gnomes.  You will need to market them.

You’ll need a website, a sales page, pictures of your gnome inventory and your prices.  Setting up a domain, an account with paypal and then advertising your wares in various places is all well and good, but what if no one comes to visit your site?  You have no traffic.  You need traffic.

Market yourself.  Put your name out there as THE person to see for garden gnomes. Put in keywords, the words that search engines look for people are searching for things online, all through your website.  Visit other sites that are garden gnome related.  Trade links with them, foster a relationship in gnome forums and brand your name. Make sure that when you post, your signature has a link to your website in it. Advertise through Google or other web pages.  Bring in the customers.

Article Directories and Ezines

If you can write, you can make money online with article directories and Ezines.

Let’s say you enjoy raising pygmy goats.  You’re an expert on pygmy goats.  You know how to breed them, what they eat, how to handle their health issues and just where to tickle them to make them giggle. You are The Pygmy Goat Whisperer.

Write articles about pygmy goats and submit them to an article directory like Article Dashboard, or an Ezine.  Within your article on Pygmy Goat Nutrition, you can insert hyperlinks to your webpage where you sell All Natural Pygmy Goat Food.  People come to the article directory searching for pieces to place on their websites.  Someone chooses your article and it’s spread to all the visitors to that particular website. People begin to visit your website and start buying the things you have to sell.  They sign up for your free Pygmy Goat Newsletter, and join your Pygmy Goat Lovers Membership group, at a price of course.  You are making money various ways and it all started because you love pygmy goats and you wrote an article about it.

Your marketing goes on and on as long as your article is available on the directory.

Ebooks, Affiliates and Blogs

An eBook is short for Electronic Book, it’s created on a computer and sold digitally to customers.

You’re reading one right now!

It does not pass through editors and publishers who all take a portion of the profits from the author. If you can write and are an expert on something, you can write an eBook and sell it online.

An Ebook has distinct advantages over a regular book in that you can place hyperlinks into an eBook that will direct customers to websites where you may be selling products relating to that particular eBook. In this way you make money once on your eBook sale and then again when your customers pay you a visit on your website.

You can place Affiliate Links in your book. An Affiliate link is where your customer clicks and is taken to a place like Amazon or another website selling products. When they purchase products from these links, you the author, are given a portion of the sale.

If you enjoy writing, you may wish to try your hand at writing a blog. The subject can be anything of interest to you, and you can place ads targeted to your audience on your blog.

When items are bought by your readers through those links, you make money. Ka-ching!
