How should I started in Internet Marketing?

by 4 comments
Here's my story. I am a 27 year old married male that lost my job 5 weeks ago. I have been through at least 15 interviews and havent received even one offer. I am sick of corporate america and I've only been out of college five years. I started looking for ways to make money online when I came across a book by Yanik Silver "Moonlighting On the Internet". I read through most of the book this past weekend and I think I want to get started in this business right away. I understand the basics of PPC advertising and I have a few ideas of products I want to sell. I dont know anything about setting up websites but I pick things up quickly on the computer. I know you cant just setup a website and expect people to come to it. I know you gotta market each and every website. I also know I should start with one project at a time and keep going. So how should I begin? Should I get a business license, figure out what I'm going to sell, setup a contract with a drop shipper, setup a website and get it marketed? Should I do affiliate marketing?

    do not spend any money yet.

    Do not even consider PPC until you can afford to lose a lot of money.

    Take a deep breathe and forget the money side. Decide what you want to do and make a plan. Then spend money that works towards your plan.

    I chose writing and articles but then I enjoy it and find it easy. Find out what you are good at and do that

      I just registered with this site 30 minutes ago. I'm still trying to figure out how to PM people and subscribe to things! I feel like the new kid at a new school!

      I learned about PPC from working for Idearc Media. They do Verizon Yellow Pages and I guess I dont know much about inexpensive advertising methods on the internet.

    Hi I've decided that maybe I should give up on selling my infographic templates product or ebook before I've even had a chance to start. I can't seem to find an affiliate marketer who can help make the launch a success. I'm willing to give 70% commission. I'm down on my last dime. I really don't know what to do. Does anyone know or are an affiliate marketer that could help or guide me? Any advice is appreciated.

    In case you have been wondering, yes, this is a true story. And yes, this has been one of the most pointless discussions I had to make in my life. Could I have avoided it in the first place? I leave you to be the judge. As a content writer, you are a lone wolf or a lone ranger, whichever you prefer. I do my job. One on one with the client. That's it. Yet, every now and then, I have to become a part of some team, more or less voluntarily. In most of the cases, I have to work with designers, animators, and similar. Not such a big deal, you may say. We all play in the same team. We want to get over with our jobs, get paid, and move on. It makes sense.

    I want to be a vendor on clickbank, I am a software developer and I want to release a product for clickbank. But I have no any project ideas, what would you suggest for me? I mainly know C# and develop bots or internet marketing tools kind of projects. But I need to develop useful bots since CB has some strict rules, e.g they don't accept crawling/scraping tools etc.
