A Quick report for Newbies who havent made $$$ Yet :) Click Here

Ive seen that there are a lot a new internet marketers who seem to be lost and don't have much direction and focus on where to start so I put together this free report that might help. I hope you can get some real value out of this and move forward with confidence.

One of the biggest and most frequently asked a question online in the Internet Marketing industry is "How do I get started".

Most people, acquire a cheap "Make money online" E-book and then they read half way through it and think "well this helped me none. I just don't understand".

I know some people will disagree, but breaking into Internet Marketing and being successful takes determination and is very hard to do.

FIRST OFF: I see too many people trying to just make money. They're only in it for the money and only want to make some sales.

This is a big problem. Why?

No one comes online looking to randomly buy things. Everyone is looking for an answer to a problem they're having or looking for a solution to something. Remember your job is not to make a sale but to solve someone's problem and in turn that is what will make you a sale.

So what do you need to make money online?

#1: You need a clue. Anyone can search Google for answers to making money online, but you've got to have an understanding of what you're doing or you'll always be running around searching for answers.

#2: You need a plan/idea. Brainstorm! You need to have a mapped out vision in your head of your business. Do you plan on purchasing a domain and starting a product on dog health care, buying domains and selling them, selling homemade materials on e-bay, writing articles, etc. There are so many options out there for what you want to do, but you've got to have an idea and a plan before you can start making money. Brainstorm in your head and think to yourself.

"What am I good at?"
"What am I knowledgeable about?"
"What is something I really enjoy doing/talking about?"
"How do I plan on providing information on this product?"

#3: You need a website. Unless you plan on marketing to forums and groups (which isn't a very well played out business plan) you need to establish a website. Before you start thinking "I have no money for a website". You can always start a Wordpress blog.

There are some techniques that may earn you a few hundred dollars a month, but the thing with me the odds such as spamming, uploading popular files to a uploading network that gives you like 5$ per 1000 downloads, referring people to various networks by placing ads and hoping you earn more than you spend. The thing with such things is that it will not grow, you'll never make more then a few hundred a month, however, if you invest in a website and that website grows and grows and with the right marketing techniques there are no limits for how much you can earn.
I'm not saying you need a website, but I would suggest it.

Sure, there are people making thousands of dollars by working extremely hard with spamming, but they can never really put it on autopilot and watch the money pour in.

Now comes the part I had trouble with when I began. Website Design/Website creation. I am not a HTML savvy guy.. believe me. While I am sure there are many sources you could hi re for you to create your website, I believe everyone should learn to create their own material at one point or another.

You need a website with an easy design/layout because anything hard to read or something that doesn't look professional will have a much lower conversion rate than what you hope for.

Word Press is a good choice for those without HTML skills and it can easily be modified to not even look like a blog.
Remember, when you're writing your sales copy/creating your product... you're speaking out to people that have a problem and are in need of a solution.

Make Money E-Book - People are broke. who wants to be broke? Train Your Dog E-Book - A loud and undisciplined dog is a danger to you and everyone around you. A Guide To Smart Car Buying - Learn to save gas and to save earth.

Do you see what I am saying? You have to speak to people in the certain niche you're trying to sell in, because you're trying to fix a problem someone has or answer a question that someone has.

In my opinion, fear and hype are two of the biggest sellers there are.

Trying to sell a vehicle? Examine your audience, a young guy will be interested in something fast and loud and will want to impress the ladies in his hot new ride. You have to know who you're selling too and get them hyped, because a hungry crowd always comes back for more.

Don't get me wrong now I am not saying a website is the only way you will ever make money period, I am just saying that this is probably the best way to create an automated source of income.

#4: Patience/Consistence. If making money online was as easy as snapping your fingers everyone would be e-millionaires. So many people quit trying once they find out how much work is actually involved in creating an online business and being good at what you do.

You have got to keep consistent. You've got a killer website but no sales, why not? Get inside your market's head and view your website not from your point of view but theirs. Do not think "how will this make me money" but "will this solve my problem"?

Be consistent and always add new fresh content and possibly new products to keep your customers/readers coming back for more. A hungry crowd can never get enough no matter how much they spend.

Now then, here are some suggestions as to when you do get a business up and running, but are not mandatory. E-MAIL LISTS!

If someone opts in to your e-mail list chances are their interested in what you've got or curious. A lot of websites don't offer a chance to opt in to an e-mail list and a lot of money is to be made off this. A lot of people who see a website once won't purchase something because they simply don't know the source. A couple of e-mails possibly sending out some free methods/tactics or newsletters might change Curious George into a buyer.

Remember, Internet Marketing is not an overnight task.

You can either sell your own or someone else's product.

The more consistent you are, the more determined you are, the more it will show. Don't give up just because you don't hit the lottery over night because like I said if making money online was truly "That easy", everyone would be doing it.

    Good stuff Evan! That's really great advice and, even though I think on similar lines to what you're saying, reading it again and again helps to concretize my plans even more. Gotta have that plan and stick to it ! The best thing I remember when I run into struggles is something I think I read in Kenster's rags to riches WSO (paraphrasing): "Everytime you run into a problem and overcome it, that's another group of people you are surpassing, because you know someone somewhere gave up at that step. So, if you keep going, that means you're yet another step up on a group of people." Good stuff

    Haha consistency is my biggest challenge. I try stuff as i go along, like building websites, developing niches, then later in my development drop some of those things. Maybe that's just the way it works. But consistency also comes with having the courage to stick with it!

    Good article, thanks!

    Hey! Great Thread. I'm actually a mentor to new people looking break into the marketing scene.

    I think that there's a few key differences in marketing & business than in a real job:

    1. We're paid for results and through profits, not by how much we work. Someone can work his/her tail off for months and end up with nothing in return while someone else could work one hour a day and catch a good income.

    2.Everything that goes wrong is in fact our fault so it's really important we find out where we made our mistakes and fix them.


    Finding a great niche is by far the most important thing you can learn when you come into marketing so I'll give out some pointers on how to find a good niche.

    1. Find 20 niches you like. You can do this through looking into Amazon, Magazine.com, ClickBank, & The Dummies Books. If you find a niche you like that looks good in more than one of these places, then it's time to get into market research.

    2. Now you get into market research: just go to the google keywords(find 20 keywords and phrases for your research) tool and type in that niche you like & record:

    1. The Keyword
    2. Search Volume

    Then take each keyword/phrase and type it into the computer and record the number of pages are in the results on google. It's right around the top....just remember if you type in a phrase, it's a good idea to put it into quotes.

    Now, here's some guidelines to get you started:

    We'll be looking at our keywords from a Page Resutls to Search volume ratio.

    Anything keyword with 50K+ page results is a bad niche

    Anything with 20K-50K range is bad except when you get 1K+ search volume.

    Anything else with a 10 : 1 ratio is excellent.

    Anything with a 20 : 1 ratio is great

    Anything with a 40 : 1 ratio is ok

    Hope this helps you start in a profitable market that you like.

      I didn't know all this when I wrote my ebook. My keyword for my niche has 5400 searches and google has 1,200,000 or so pages. Can that work or should I try and promote it by finding variations for my keyword?

      Thank you AwesomePossum for this excellent 'in a nutshell' information. I am very grateful for all the advice on finding a niche given on this forum but it is especially helpful to get it in summary form.

    Ive found that ive learnt to program bits and pieces by building Wordpress sites, if a plugin doesnt work or you want to add links into a widget you need to learn these things and that is transfering across onto other sites.

    My piece of advise is document everything, set yourself up with a spreadsheet of your sites and what stages they are at, what you need to do to them etc otherwise when you have 100+ sites things start to get lost and unorganised.

  • Good post. Its not glamorous, but its the truth. Youve just got to learn but get your hands dirty. Its not going to cost an arm and a leg to start (and it never should), but it will cost you a lot if you never get going at all.

    Evan, this is pure gold. Along the lines of something you wrote, I struggled in IM until I finally got a decent mentor and he finally pounded it into my head to stop trying to make money, and start providing value. I always hated that thinking "I'm new at this...I have no value to provide". But then I finally got it. Whatever niche or niches you finally settle on, you CAN provide value regarding almost anything if you're willing to do the research. Sure, I can spend 5 hours online looking for the best dog training info...or, I can spend 15 bucks and have it all in 5 minutes, because someone else already did that research for me, and I'm willing to pay a nominal sum for it. Yes, almost anyone's time is worth more than $3 an hour, and they'll pay for solid, organized information that they can immediately use.

    I think of my main focus now as being a researcher, not a marketer. Btw, the better your research skills become, the quicker you'll learn how to become a decent marketer, make products, create whatever you want.
