There are numbers of ways to make money online including article marketing, pay per click marketing, selling your own products, building a list and many others. Whether you choose to market somebody else's product or you create your own doesn't matter, you'll still need to put in the time and effort.
An Example of Slow and Steady
Building a list is one of the greatest examples of how slow and steady wins the Internet marketing race. You start by creating a squeeze page and in implementing marketing strategies to drive traffic to that page. As you gain subscribers, they will get your messages you've already set up an autoresponder.
It may take more than a year to build a profitable list, but as soon as you have a profitable list you can market to it anytime you want and see large profits. Some Internet marketers have done this so well that they send out two messages a month promoting new products, whether there's or somebody else's, and they make thousands of dollars just from those two e-mails.
Many other benefits come from the slow and steady method to making money online. When you have a targeted e-mail list of over 1,000 subscribers, you can offer solo advertisement to others. This allows you to charge other people to send a single message to your entire list. This is just one more example of how you can use this method to create an online income.
Quick Ways to Start Building Your List
Of course, you need a domain name and a squeeze page to get started. However, once you have your squeeze page, you need a steady flow of traffic. There are number of ways to get traffic to your squeeze page. The key is to match the type of traffic you're getting to the offer that you're presenting.
It wouldn't make much sense to promote the link to your squeeze page on a weight loss website if your offer is about Internet marketing. However, if your offer is about Internet marketing it may make sense to use traffic exchanges to drive massive amounts of traffic to your squeeze page. Typically, this type of traffic is looking for things associated with the Internet marketing industry.
If your offer was about weight loss, however, you could use guest blogging to get traffic to your squeeze page. By getting your guest blog post featured on fitness blogs, health blogs and other types of blogs that have anything to do with weight loss, you can get highly targeted traffic to your page.
Any beginner can start building a list immediately. Once you have your squeeze page, all you need to do is test different types of traffic and see what's going to create subscribers.
