The 5 best proven ways of internet marketing
There are more ways to make money online, than you can shake a stick at !
The thing to do is to make a plan and stick to it.
You can buy and sell goods, be an affiliate for someone elses products or even source goods from China and sell on your ecommerce site, the number of ways to make money is rising with the size of the internet itself. In 2015 most sources quote 3.2 billion people now have some internet connection, staggering! That’s half the population of the world. How would your business be with over 3 billion customers?
I wrote this article to give you a few pointers, but it doesn’t really matter how you start, as long as you do start. The following, in no particular order are the 5 best methods i’ve found to be successful and reasonably easy to understand and implement.
- Compare goods on your website, give your advice about which is best and promote it
- Use Clickbank.com to find an info product, buy it, read it, critique it and promote it.
- Use your own specialist knowledge, write your own info product and sell it.
- Use Offervault to find advertisers offers and promote them
- Promote your own or other peoples web tools and plug ins
All these really require building a website, so if you are a total beginner this is a bit of a stiff learning curve. Over the last few years though, building the website is not the huge hurdle it once was. With the free “WordPress” software, on which half the web seems to be built, a site can be ready to go within 5 minutes….. no I’m not joking ! You can be putting up your first website in just five minutes time, filling it with your products your advice and your adverts.
If you’ve already had a go, made a website, made a few sales, then you know just how good it feels to succeed. Even if you’re not making a full time living at it, you’re half way there. The problem can be that there is too much conflicting information out there and you just don’t know which is the best way to go.
A couple of years ago, getting your website to be seen, in other words when you type in ” best car polish” you need your Car Polish website to come up right at the top of the Google search results, was indeed a tricky and time consuming procedure. It took months to rank even on page 2 or 3 and taking a lot of effort to do so. Now though, Google is weeding out all the scammers and ‘thin’ sites with hardly any information on them, so the best advice is to write for your prospects, your customers, write the answers to their questions, and you’ll be rewarded with a good rank. The higher you appear in the Google ( Bing and Yahoo too ) searches, the more customers you will see , visiting your site and buying your goods.
Of course there is always paid traffic. All the big marketers use adverts. Google or Facebook ads will get you a ton of visitors, or will it just drain your wallet giving poor returns or even none at all.
As with most things, having a mentor, will speed things up enormously, but which one? There are so many and some quite frankly give rubbish help and charge a lot for it. After a few years in this area, you soon acquire Gigabytes of courses, downloads, books, ebooks, some good, some bad. Jeff Johnson has been a big help, with his free WordPress plug in and his free advice videos on YouTube ranking. You Tube is huge , if you offer any sort of a service on your website, You tube is the best way to be seen and to carry your message. Sean Mize too, gives an enormous amount of help, in his series of audio pod casts. He has I think a very unique and approach, maybe not to everyones taste and certainly hard work preparing so many articles, but he gets great results, proving that to get the best results you should aim to become the “go to guy” in your niche. After all if you wanted to become a great cook you might follow Jamie Oliver, a great footballer you would look at videos from Man Utd players, a great scientist you would read Einstein, or Laithwaite ….. and so on. Marisa Murgatroyd is another big believer in the ‘Maven’ or Expert model and gets good results.
