Well, then you should look into Internet marketing because of the massive potential to generate an automated passive income streams for yourself. However, there are some things you need to consider. In this article we will discuss how you can become a successful Internet marketer and finally quit your job!
Making money on the Internet is a dream that so many people have. To date, there are more than 500 million blogs out of 1.7 billion websites in the world with thousands dedicated to the ideal of a lifestyle of living on the beach, running your business with a laptop and traveling the world - all while making money on the Internet. While some of this is in fact true, they also leave the hard work aspect of it.
As you are looking into Internet marketing there are many factors to consider. The first you need to decide on at the beginning is if you are going to be an affiliate marketer, or a product owner. Of course there are pros and cons to both - it will generally depend on your personality , your skill set and dedication to establishing a strong presence with the one you choose.
My best recommendation If you're just getting started with Internet marketing is to become an affiliate marketer first. The reason for this is You can start making money quickly provided you do it right. Product creation is very lucrative but it does take time to get a winning product developed. Besides You can obtain wisdom as you learn affiliate marketing to later to create a product of your own. There are several products online today that will allow you to create affiliate automation sales funnels. Two that I am familiar with and I personally know the product owners is 12MA and AFC 2.0. Both are excellent programs and support is awesome.
There are many paid courses and free courses on the Internet that will teach you how to do Internet marketing. However you should exercise caution with most of this information because there is a lot of hype out there. There are a lot of false promises and information that no longer works. The only free course that I personally recommend to my students and that I have personally used is MOS.
It's sad to say as many new Internet marketers have been led down the wrong path having spent a lot of money just to just loads of outdated information. This can lead to frustration, confusion, and ultimately failure as an Internet marketer. Don't let this happen to you! Run from any program that promises you will be rich soon.
As for which courses and information that you should purchase, look for case studies that are recent, relevant and from reputable sources. Join a several forums and start networking with other people. Within a short time you will make new friends and they can also help steer you in the right direction.
If you have been doing affiliate marketing for awhile having created some consistent success, this is when I would recommend you began to consider creating or coming a product owner. As a product owner this would allow you to recruit affiliates to promoting your products, and if the quality of the product is good you can make some serious money!
Remember however, that all the responsibly falls back on you, customer support, managing affiliate commissions, expense to get you sales copy completed, images done etc.
Another point to consider is your traffic sources such as pay per click (PPC), search engine optimization (SEO), Solo Ads to name a few, to capture leads for your product. Finally you should have an efficient automated sales funnel to help convert leads into sales. There are many products available today for automated sales funnels. The one I use and have now for more that 5 years is OptimizePress 3.0, other are ClickFunnels & Leadpages.
As you can see there are many things to consider when starting your own Internet marketing business. However, if you stay consistent, work hard and don't give up you'll most likely find success and finally be able to quit your job on your terms!
