Top 5 Internet Marketing Tips for Beginners

62 replies
1. Make Youtube videos on your niche

Youtube is an excellent free source of traffic is used correctly.
Try to make 2-3 simple videos concerning your niche and link them back to your website etc.
This is both a tool of traffic and trust-building.

2. Create a page on all popular social media and make them grow

You can start with Facebook.
All you have to do is create a page and share some related and interesting content.
You can join groups involved with your niche and do a gentle promotion of your page.
In due time, you will start building an expading list of followers on various platforms.
Besides traffic, it's also good for credibility.

3. Build an email-list

As you become more experienced, you will realize the value of email lists.
Those emails are usually from people who are very interested in your niche, in other words
highly targetted traffic.
Just create a simple prompt that will offer the visitor something in return of the subscription.
It can be an free ebook, newsletter etc.

4. Keep reading and expading your knowledge

There are lots of useful information scattered in various places like this forum.
As long as you don't get trapped by too much reading and paralysis by analysis,
you can grow the database of your mind and become highly efficient in Internet Marketing.

5. Stay Persistent

I will quote Calvin Coolidge here
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent"

    I think a good tip for beginners would be, "the internet is not a magical place where you don't have to work to build a real income or business".

    Too many newbies are deluding under the impression that building a business online doesn't require work like any offline / brick and mortar business.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Action is more powerful than thoughts.

    Don't depend upon anyone else except yourself to create income.... not only do you own your actions, you own your education (or lack of it).

      I agree Taking Action is sooooo important

      BUT

      ..for instance when I ran Cross Country in Highschool I had a horrible Coach my first year as a freshman. In the summer he said for us that for training to just go out and "hit the pavement" with long runs as much as possible. Just Do it he said. Without thinking I did this and ended up getting injured.

      Fast forward two years later with a New Coach of our Cross Country team.

      Not only did he just tell us to train during the Summer he gave us each our own personal training plan printed out on Spreadsheets to follow everyday of the week. It was a masterful Plan and it told us what days to train hard and fast and what does to go long and slow and what does to just go take a hike down to the fishing hole as well as what foods and liquid we should be consuming etc..etc..

      I ended up making All State that year and had PR times over a minute faster for 3 miles than ever before.

      My Point ?? Taking Action without a clear cut Plan can sometimes be almost as detrimental as not taking any action at all

      Just ask me as a Freshman and a bum knee with a bad training plan :>)

    People give all kinds of advice about what should be done. Most people know what should be done but the real thing is HOW it should be done! The real secret lies in how the things are done so you don't spend an enormous amount of time and energy and money, and yet you make it all work! That's what you should be paying attention to if you want to make money.

  • I agree that taking action is essential but knowing what action to take does require research, possible training to learn the basics, finding a profitable niche that solves a problem, answers questions and most importantly has affiliate products that address them or products of your own even better?

    Building a mailing list is essential so that buyers join your list and might buy from you more than once? Build a relationship and trust with your subscribers. Give them at least 3 times more help than simply selling them with every follow up email and stay in touch with them long after they joined your mailing list.

    Learn how to get traffic and how to get results without spammy sales pitches? Once you master traffic you will make money provided all the other factors are right?

    Scale up when success begins and never stop learning. Those are my tips for success.

Kudos for trying, it's not easy to post in forums. Let's give the beginners something really actionable to take away from your posts. Like step by step guide on how to use Youtube videos or maybe a step by step guid for facebook advertising.

    Throughout the last decade in IM I have found that we all go through bands and advice about YouTube marketing to OP worries me because it speaks so short term knowledge about the internet. Go back then and article marketing was all the rage. It was in season, but then things changed. So I would suggest remembering that all things change online.

    Anyways, here would be my 5 and they are more tiers to growth online, but I think these are essential tips because people get stuck in some places.

    1. Learn
    2. Act
    3. Keep Learning
    4. Keep Applying
    5. Get other people to worry about it!

    5 is important. It is easy to think you are on top of the online world, only to find new skills come about and you are stuck in an old skill and not suited to a new skill. You also have a certain amount of hours per day. Can you really specialize in every different area online? A miner in the coal pits and a bitcoin miner are two different kettles of fish, so having people with new skills can help.

      Regional warrior, thanks for your constructive criticism.
      Now concerning the part of facebook ads, they are not suggested at all in the post.

      On the other hand, engaging in groups and pages relevant to your niche and making some gentle promotion with links to your page, from time to time, is something really feasible and useful for growing your audience.

      Moreover don't fall to the trap of
      equating the number of posts to actual experience.
      There are some people here with few posts but great knowledge.

    3) stop buying crap, and start selling stuff.

    4) Create high quality NICHE content each day.

    5) stop making stuff perfect, get it out there, [yes, it is good enough] fix it up later.

        1. Increase your content knowlege by reading the blogs regularly.
        2. Post your own blogs with qualitative content.
        3. Find the relevent blogs and forums. And try to comment very accurately and efficiently.
        4. Be aware about the google updates.
        5. Gave a proper attention to each and every link building processes, how others are posting and how they are getting benefits from them.

    Another tip I would add is, if you're a newbie, you need to stop acting like a newbie. Most people who are new use there "newness" to justify not taking action and just asking a ton of questions before they begin.

    Instead of asking a lot of questions, how about you act first and ask questions later? If you want to be successful you have to do the opposite of what the unsuccessful people are doing.

    Successful people don't sit around asking questions, instead, they go out and get their hands dirty. Then once you get some dirt on your hands and you find yourself stuck, it may be time to ask a question or two to help you overcome your obstacle and continue to move forward.

    5 tips of IM beginners :

    1.) DON'T focus on technical stuff if you're just starting out... Focus on the conceptual and inter-personal, focus on generating revenue to hire technical people - trust me on this!

    2.) Focus on one course until you succeed, never give up!

    3.) Get a mentor that specializes in your business model and/or industry.

    4.) Don't get stuck in analysis paralysis - take small but imperfection steps : Fail small and fail fast, but take action, learn, and crush it!

    5.) Paid traffic is ultimately where you want to be.

    One of the best tips I heard this week is don't quit any project until you've made $100.

    It's way to easy to end up with half-finished projects so I quite like this for the fact that you have to a) finish and b) make some money with it. And... at least then you can decide (more accurately rather than out of laziness) whether or not the project has the legs to go further.

    Personally, I think it's too easy to get bored, distracted and then caught up with some bright, shiny object that makes you a million bucks a minute.

  • Having been marketing online since 2005, I would say that if it sounds like a get rich quick scheme it usually is .

    Just because you are working online doesn't mean you don't have to actually work.

    Follow through with one method and follow it through until you get results.

    Don't give up!

    Hope that helps.
