Very few gives good ideas. As I understand as not a flat newbie but with 1 year experience only. If you want to become a marketer who makes at least $200 per month , you have a lot of work to do.
Most marketers who sells products that claim , you are able to make $223.320 in 10 days and you will have 30.000 people in your list in one month and others which claim , you will have 700 opt-ins every day and other claim , your website will be ranked in first 3 places in google in 3 days and all of these are crap promises and a LIES. None of them are real.
I am fighting , and I say I am fighting as a warrior I am here in this forum , and I do more work than my daily work. And so far I have done nothing.
I am learning html , I am learning flash , I am learning graphics design , I used to use paintshop pro , so photoshop like programms will be easier to be learnt.
But the truth is , if you want to become a marketer who makes $200 per month and if you manage to reach this level , you will be very happy.
The only thing I manage to do , was one sale , in december of 2009 , because it was christmass , I payed 200 Euros in google adwords and I sell one diet program for $30 I was very happy I manage to sell $30 and I payed $200. After that , I didn't manage , to sell any other product , because my adwords account wiped out. and my campaigns stopped. I tried to fund my account after christmass , and I made no sales , because christmass passed and no people wants to purchase something anymore.
The only truth is , you need to fight as warrior in internet marketing war. And some times the work you have to do , is much more than the work you do , in your 9 to 5 work.
And in most times your 9 to 5 work will give you more money than the internet marketing. So far in my journey , I spend , I spend , I spend....
And my e-mail is spammed , spammed , spammed....
Other fact. If you didn't start in 2001 , now you are late. Most succesful marketers start 10 years ago. Now the market is oversaturated. And the search engines have assimilate the old websites and marketers. So the traffic streams goes to old sharks.
Also , most of clickbank products , already soldout , in fact oversold out , years ago. Already the old sharks have sold products that , you as a newbie try to sell again. Who will purchase , every people here is trying to sell dog training books , how many dogs you will train? Are you going to train all dogs on planet earth? If you train all dogs on this planet , what dog training techers and centers do? If you sell dog training books to trail all the dogs of this planet , then I will be very proud for you , you became a succesful dog trainer.
But we , newbie marketers who we don't have enough money to sustain our campaigns , I will give you an example. Most of you poor internet marketers as me , you have save your last $100 and you didn't feed your children at night to save these last $100 to fund your poor google adwords campaign. You are struggling to create one poor campaign in adwords with Quality score 1 to 4 and with daily budget $5 to $10 to manage to have your poor campaign for 10 to 15 alive. You post your campaign and the Google Boss slap your campaign with 1/10 quality score and you need to bid higher. But your poor budget is only $10 per day so you bid higher , but in the other side the fat cat , with $100.000 in account bids higher against you , so your poor daily budget reach the $10 a day , and your poor campaign stopped.
And the days passed , you take 20 clicks a day , because you can't sustain more , because your daily budget is very small , you have to choose , if $20/day and 5 days or $10/day and 10 days.
In both cases you are doomed. Even if someone click your campaigns , your impressions are very few , your campaign need to get matured , and you need at least 30 days to sustain your campaign , but in the other side your enemy , have bigger weapons than you , you are trying to fight with maces and the enemy hits with nuclear weapons.
Your account have $100 only and the enemy have $100.000 your impressions are less than 10000 but the enemy have more than 10.000.000 and you pay $0.40 for each click and your enemy pays $0.01 for each click. Who will win?
Your campaigns appears once an hour , your enemy compaigns appears every second.
Your campaigns have 2/10 quality score , your enemy campaigns have 9/10 or 10/10.
So my friends , the internet marketing game , is already lost for us the poor ones.
The only one thing which save us and give us a hope , is the market is very deep , but you have a lot of work to do.
One piece of the internet marketing puzzle is , collect ideas from others.
