How to get started with internet marketing

internet_marketingIf you want to start a business online, there is a lot of information that you need to go through to become finally successful. It isn’t easy and if you don’t even know the right direction, you will most likely end up broke.

Today I want to show you how to get started with internet marketing.

Always promote yourself

When getting started with internet marketing, most people make the mistake that they sign up for a business opportunity and start to promote their sales pages. That’s what most newbies do and that’s one of the reasons why they don’t become successful.

Take a look at the leaders in this industry, what are they doing?

You’ll find out, all of them always promote themselves first before they promote a business opportunity. They send traffic to their own blog and to their own squeeze pages but not to a company website.

Always build your own email list

If you want to make money online, you better build your own email list. Again, take a look at the leaders, they all have their own email list and they all focus on adding new contacts on that email list. Through an email list you can send out multiple promotions, either for one business opportunity or for multiple opportunities. That’s how you build up multiple streams of income. You’ll need an autoresponder like Pureleverage to build your own email list.

Run your own blog

If you want to become successful online, you should run your own blog, so that people can get to know, like and trust you. I’m talking about a WordPress blog that you setup on your very own domain. Don’t use one of those hosted blogs that seem to be popular nowadays. On your blog you should have an autoresponder signup form, so that people can signup to your email list.

Track your advertising

You need to generate traffic to your squeeze pages and to your blog. When doing this, especially if you pay for traffic, you must use a tracking system, so that you know where your signups and sales are coming from. Without tracking you’ll always shoot in the dark and you will only get sales by chance.

Have a sales funnel that converts

You can send millions of visitors to your websites, build a list of thousands of subscribers and still not make any income at all if you don’t have a sales funnel in place that converts subscribers into buyers. When starting out with internet marketing, it will be impossible for you to set up a real great sales funnel. Every sales funnel needs to be tested and optimized to convert a maximum of the subscribers into buyers. Testing and optimizing your sales funnel takes time and you must actually know what you are doing there. It’s much easier to use a proven system that has an optimized sales funnel already in place. With a proven system like MLSP you can get started instantly and send traffic to squeeze pages with a sales funnel in the backend that converts signups into buyers.

When starting out with internet marketing, keep the above mentioned points in mind. Always model yourself after  successful marketers instead of re-inventing the wheel. Don’t copy but do what the successful people do.

To your success,
