So here goes my first attempt

13 replies
Hey Everyone! I have been reading this forum for a while now but have never used any of the information I have gathered. I am finally “going to jump in the deep end” as they and dedicate all of my free time to Internet Marketing in the hope to make this a full time career.

I have earned some money online by offering website design but it is doing as well as I would like, hence why I am entering the world of IM. By reading this forum I have learned a lot about AdSense, Amazon Affiliates, creating your own information products….

I was wondering what would be a good starting plan to see some financial results fairly fast, I am not asking for a way to earn money fast without any effort. I just need some reassurance that there is money to be earned in IM, I am willing to spend every spare moment of my day to ensure maximum success from what you guys suggest.
I look forward to what guys suggest, every opinion and idea will be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance, Joe Crosbie

      Thanks for advice, I know this forum is full of information.

      I have thought about creating a information product on setting up a website before, would you recommend it come with video tutorials. Do you think that would be a good selling point ?

    The fastest way to make your first dollar online is to provide freelancing services - copywriting, designs, coding, etc. Might not be entirely passive but it's a good way to start

      Yes I agree with StarCraft, you can start with freelance service. You can look at some market places like freelancer.com, oDesk, Elance and some other.

    Pick a hungry market you at least know something about. Put up a squeeze page offering something for free and pick a traffic method to start driving people to that squeeze page. Start building that list asap. Go deep in this market creating your own products and doing affiliate marketing. Learn how to do GREAT email marketing. Pick up autoresponder madness to do that. You could start building your list and making affiliate sales within the month.

    Great advice guys, so I could potentially create an information product teaching website design and build a list and then potentially I could give myself an upsell by then sending an email out to my list offering a new product teaching them how to market & promote their website. Something along those lines? What you guys think ?

    The thing about info products is it's a saturated market, you'd need a very compelling topic and ebook to really push sales

      So you're saying that offering freelance services is a good way to start to earn money fast. How would you "starcraft2" go on from there if you're saying that the "info product" market is saturated unless you have a compelling topic that is really going to interest people.

    First money online?

    Fiverr.com - you will not build your business here, but you will have income to invest in adwords etc. (see my signature for example

      Thanks for your adivce man, much appreciated. I have had a litte bit of experience with Fiverr, I made about $15 offering logo design. Im not so much in need of making money fast, Im just wanting to know which would be a good way of heading to make a good income from. I would like to see small results fairly fast just so I know that the way I am heading is a genuine way of making money online.

      I have much confidence in Internet Marketing but I also a lot of lack of belief at the same time. I hope you know what I mean by saying that ?

    I can assure you there is a lot of money to earn in every niche, jsut depends wheter(not how) you'll approach it from all the sides you can think of. I'm not saying how you're gonna approach it because it doesn't matter, just try a lot and you'll find what works. You can go SEO, video marketing, CPA, dating offers, fiverr, anything. The thing that you really need to realise is not how to beging, but just begin.

    I you're gonna go for list building, don't try to make the best squeeze page possible, just do something, rip something off. Set it up as fast as possible. Then when you have that, don't start planning how you're gonna get traffic. Go and do it. Take the first advice(well maybe not the first, but you get the idea) you get from someone and do it. If someone says go on youtube, do it. If someone says go to forums, do it. Don't plan. As a beginner you don't need to plan to much, you just have to know what you have to have and then once it is running, then you can start perfecting.

    There are places where it is a bit different, probably fiverr, ebay and etc would be that, but most places aren't like that. Most IMers fail immediately because they don't take action immediately.

      You are definitely at the right place to start a career in IM. I can't see you making money "fast" with IM however. If you need money quick you should offer your services and also work on your IM business. Affiliate marketing is great to get into for newbies.

    Fiverr, Ebay, and Half .com will help you to make money fast. But if you want to do the IM route with digital products... you have alot of options. Depending on your price, you will want to make the decision to build a list or simply drive people to your squeeze page.
