    Every field of study has its own jargon and specific knowledge to learn, my friend.

    This is no different.

    If you went to take a college course on bookkeeping, how long would you expect that course to last?

    Bring those expectations to each topic of internet marketing and you might build a business.

    Go have a look at the other sites in your niche. Many of them will have a newsletter that you can subscribe to. Subscribe so can see what kind of emails they send out.

    you should start with getting a squeeze page and autoresponders...
    sign up affiliate program either clickbank or jvzoo

    believe me... this is not going to be easy to start... because you will need to learn alot of things... and if is easy.. then you wont be asking this kind of question...
    but once you get used to it... then will be easy

    you will be doing testing and checking from time to time to develop your own complete system

      Everything you wanna learn takes time. You can start with basics of digital marketing and how it works. Then proceed to email marketing.

    Hey buddy, there is a learning a curve towards learning in the internet marketing world. Email marketing is just a small portion of what you NEED to know if you are chasing success online. Its normal to be confuse. Focus on a topic one by one, don't jump ship. You will get more confuse and end up quitting.

    Give yourself a break, it takes time to 'know everything'. In most realistic cases, it might take you years to cover most of the IM topics. That does not include procrastination and changes to the trends we need to adapt along the way.

  • Hello Prince727, so once you have gone through the internet marketing guided listed by members, you need some hands-on experience without shelling money, which is what I did when i started last month. I used Ariticmail, their free plan also did not require my credit card credentials to start with. Secondly trying a free plan helped me understand the process tension free and check if the campaign is helping me or not. Lastly Ariticmail has docs on their site which explain things like we do to a two year old child, which saved me from a lot of embarrassment. They have 24 x 7 support to answer your queries.

    If your into email marketing, I suggest not to buy the tools yet like autoresponder, domain and hosting. As most people have mentioned, take time reading and making notes from experienced warrior threads. Once you have mastered the topic, then you can invest in yourself and the tools.

      Sorry, but I don't think this is great advice.

      Whatever route you take online you will need domains, some hosting and an autoresponder. Better that you get to grips with the mechanics behind these things now rather than later.

      Just spending money on trainings and ebooks and not taking action before you are some kind of "expert" is a sure fire way to earn zero dollars. In fact that is precisely the reason why 97% of people who try to make money from online marketing fail miserably.

    I think you should jump in the deep end and get started, then learn as you go. Reading about copywriting, sales funnels and all that.

    Decide on who you want to market to, set-up a squeeze page, start driving traffic and start emailing.

    Give yourself permission to suck, you will have unsubscribes, you will get people emailing you back and questioning you - you don't have to listen to them, it's YOUR business.

    I believe that's the best way to learn email marketing. Sure there are other things, but get one thing under your belt first and email is a bad-ass one to start with.

    And all the time, be yourself. You can't please everyone.
