Schemes, ideas and even secrets are available to the newcomer internet marketer, almost a new one every other day. It holds the promise of riches and a happy fulfilled life for just following a few simple steps.
True it is, the steps are simple, but the profits lie beyond the steps as many disgruntled internet marketers have by now realized. The internet business is not an easy money generating machine for just anyone who dares enter.
What many people trying to make it in the internet marketing business tend to forget, mainly because of very well written and researched sales letters, is that the online business is relatively the same as an off-line business. You can’t run an off-line business working two hours a day and make a ton of cash. Any business needs time to grow with ups and downs, it has always been like that and it will always remain like that.
The autopilot has retired quite some time ago and if you figure that you want to employ him get ready to pay his retirement fund.
OK this so far sounds like someone who has now become fed up with the online marketing idea and the making money quick schemes.
So why would you still want to pain yourself if there is no future? Guess what, there is a very lucrative future in the internet business you must just learn to see it. Opportunities are as abundant in the internet marketing arena as they have never been before and it is growing daily. More and more people are finding themselves able to work from home and earn a substantial income online.
So is there a secret to this that someone should write a book about? No, you already know the answer. It is plain simple hard work, divided into building your website with quality content, getting back links from authority sites and writing articles and posting them to the article directories.
Next step is to monetize your website, not castrate it. Decide on a product you would like to promote and add it to your site. Place the ad in a good position and do a small write up on the product. A interested visitor can click on the link and off they go to the sales page If they like the product and have the means to pay you have made a sale. It is as simple as that. There are many ways and means to get products and amongst them are resell rights products, PLR products, Affiliate products or your own product.
But remember, your sales will only come from traffic, feet as it is referred to in the off-line world. No feet, no traffic, no sales.
So the secret here is no secret at all, get visitors to your site and you will make money. Make sure your on-page and off-page optimizations are done to the maximum of your ability and then add another one hundred percent of effort to make it better.
The most effective way in which to get your pages indexed in the search engines and ranked is with article submissions to the article directories. From them you will receive one way back links, the most important links of all. They are the ones that will give you page rank and good search result placement.
The best place to be is at the top of page one for your search term, it is never easy but neither is it impossible. Have a look, there is someone in position one, and always will be. Why can it not be you?
