      I think losing money in any business endeavour should be expected, and the beauty with Internet Marketing is the money you loose is not that significant as compared to what you would loose attempting a conventional business.

      Having said that, it can also be significant with Internet Marketing if you start it with a BIG budget, usually because you are tempted to use money to gain success, which is not the best approach, that's usually because of laziness, when people want to get rich quick. The process is to learn it yourself.

      And if you are fortunate to have started without a lot of money, then you will be forced to work with a shoe string budget and there is no way you will lose a lot of money because you simply won't have it.

      Anyway, with that said, I do agree with svetod, the skill you want to focus on first and foremost is list building/lead generation, as this will now allow you to market almost anything and everything.

    What is Internet marketing?

    In very simple words: it's making use of Internet to earn money. Some ppl earn millions some not even pennies. It's the millionaires that attract us.

    There's a funny side to this Internet marketing domain. A lot of ppl earn a lot of money by telling others how to make money, it's like a paradoxical reality. See, even you are asking somebody that would help you earn money online, lol.

    There's no one-universal-approach to earning money online but to give you a quick head start you can head over to Chris Farrell membership area. I started with that, after that signup for the war room membership.

    Always keep one thing in mind: earning money requires hard work and time, Internet marketing can be more rewarding but you cannot make it without the hard work.

    Hope that helps

    To respond to the OP Question.

    Internet Marketing is the thing that will free you from your 9 to 5 job. Keep this in mind.

    Even if you won't get good money for the first months, or even years, don't give up. I have friends that I have convinced to try Internet Marketing and they failed at first. Not that they didn't do anything, but the process was slow and they were tempted more by the instant money they got from their day job or they were too lazy. After few years when things got bad they tried again and this time they got the money they wanted and they are sorry that they didn't tried immediately after their first failure.

    You need motivation. A lot motivation. Sometimes things are far more complicated that you can think of. Somethimes you will face dead ends and you have to go back and choose another route, but in the end you will find it. Never give up or you will be doomed to an office job that you dislike.

    Internet Marketing is the freedom to do what you want.


    Now, you need a starting point. Email marketing is something good but you can't employ it right now. Even if you get all kind of advices that you should do email marketing, you should ignore that for at least few weeks or months until you learn more about websites, monetization, traffic generation, etc.

    Think about what you like to do. Try to find a problem you have and try to solve it. For example, if you like cooking, start a blog/website about cooking. Make some pictures and videos of you cooking stuff you like. Research your topic and give what you learned to your visitors. If you know some programming your can build a tool that will solve someone problem. Or you can get a script from the internet and start to promote it. You need to have some knowledge in the field. Don't go for something you have no clue about.

    Now, more detailed, what you need.

    Give something valuable, people will come and some of them will pay for it.

    For example, you biuild the website, providing something valuable: content, tools, etc. This is your venue. It does not have to be a website, it can be a blog, or a facebook page, a twitter account, a forum section, an ad listing ( if you provide a service ).

    Then, you have to get your audience. Providing value will get you traffic to your website, blog, facebook page, craiglist ad, etc.

    When you get people to know you and use what you provide, then you can show them ads and you will get paid when they click on, or you can promote products where you earn a comission, or you can sell them some premium stuff.

    Hope you will find your way soon.

    Internet marketing is using the internet to create an income online.

    Set up a blog and begin providing people valuable information that they are looking for. Be sure that you have an opt in box.

    If they like your information they will opt-in to your email list. Once they are on your email list you begin building a relationship with them.

    Give them value that they can use. This will help them begin to trust you.

    Begin promoting affiliate links or better yet, your own products. Since you have been providing them value, they will trust your opinion and recommendations.

    Focus on building your email list. I waited way too long to do this. I think this is the best way to create an income online.

    Hope you find your way quickly.

    I would advise to Google There`re no perfect internet marketing texbooks because industry changes very fast. Every few months with any new Google algorithm update or FB/G+ innovation it can change radically. Imho, this pal started from the good point asking questions in specialized forum.

    Depends on your resources and what interests you, if you love what you do in IM, it works 60% better than something you don't have an interest in

      This is fine if you want to be self employed and sell web design services, but likely not the best way to make money online since your designs will suck and there is little leverage.

      A blog without "buyer" traffic is useless.

      Build a blog doing unbiased product reviews, send people to affiliate link ("pay per lead" or "pay per sale" = CPA) and then you are on to a winner.

    Dude, what are you good at, or what do you find passion in? These are questions you want to ask yourself to get going. Are you good at making videos ok then concentrate your efforts on learning how to make money with youtube. Are you good at making websites, then focus there, you know what Im getting at.

      I was in your same position a couple of months ago and am very thankful that I found a company that gives you all of the training you need to either promote your own product or theirs. They give you motivation, inspiration, all the technical training, a ready to go high ranking blog etc. Make your life a bit easier and partner up with a company that can guide you and help you fulfill your goals. I would invest some time into researching different company's to make sure they are a good fit for your needs.
