You are welcomed to the world of internet marketing.

Your question is an open ended one but i will teach you how to start the cheapest and profitable online business.

There are various ways of marketing online but the affiliate marketing is the best place to start as a beginner.

It requires little or no money to start. All you need is to buy comprehensive e-book that details every step required to start marketing as an affiliate.

Online marketing is not a competition, therefore take your time to digest the book and put everything to work. In fact, only action takers make living online.

Do not make mistake of buying every e-book the come across your way because almost all of the them conveys the same message in different tune.

In case of any confusion, do not hesitate to come to the forum for clarification.

use a personal recommended e- book for online business.

Soak everything up like a sponge. Take your time to learn the ins and out of this business. Do small things on a daily basis like learning how to advertise online. Tell yourself that you will succeed and make a strong commitment to never giving up.

My thought on this would be - TAKE YOUR TIME.

Find tons of books to read for FREE.

Learn the basics of email marketing, blogging, copywriting, html and as much as you can absorb in the shortest, yet most productive timeframe possible.

Once you have an idea of what internet marketing is, take a little more time and do some research on the area that you are interested in.

Start your business for as little as you can until you begin to really understand online marketing.

Build a blog, learn on a free platform. Don't buy every next best product. And did I mention, take your time?

There is a ton of free informaton online for you to locate, download and learn from - BEFORE you open up your bank account or credit cards.

Good luck

Allen

Hey Man,
You don't need to prove everybody wrong. it is just an advice to the beginner and you should understand that the successful marketers spend little time in forum.

So, offer your own advise.

What 30 day challenge?

The PlugInProfitSite 30 Days to Success training is online only and is frequently updated by Stone Evans ONLINE.

There is no PDF for 30 Days to Sucess (there may have been long ago) -

...there is a free PIPS PDF called 'Dotcomology' but it is different from the 30 Days to Success training.

There is no video for PIPS 30 Days to Success - however there is a video called 'Newbie Training Videos' that is free to our members.

... but thanks all the same for your kind words.

You are so right as i also start with the same path you do list out here. My laptop full of ebook same is junk and same is quality. every moment there are a lot ebook that pop up in the market you cant really go buy and buy it. i am also still newbies and i did not want to waste the money to keep buying coz the info maybe in my hard disk.all i need to do is keep reading and make note which have value and go apply it before forget.

So you want to get started with Internet marketing, but like most people do you are simply confused. Let me put your mind at ease. The source of this confusion is simple: information overload. To get started in Internet marketing you have to first decide the type of marketing and the nature of the product.
This is very important to help you sift through all the confusing offerings on the net and will steer you on a course. So first take your time to understand different types and than choose one from the many. The best way in my understanding is to do Affiliate Marketing. Its easy and with very less investment or even with no investment at all.
Once you’ve decided that affiliate marketing is the route to follow, you need to decide on the nature of the product. Choose the type of product or service for which there is strong demand. It does not need to be something you personally want, but you should be able to identify with it and it has to be something that many people want.

Dear OldMan

I second this suggestion in a HUGE way! Particularly for a NEW NEW beginner. It starts at the very beginning and helps you understand the entire "concept" while showing you each step to take.
You can do it at your own pace so you can really understand each part of the processes.

best of luck to your success

One thing most people for get is to start a business that you like find your the niche that's works for you if you don't then you might give up. People turn hobby's into money. There is a lot of information out there that will be helpful to a pips program like SFI might be one program you could look into. Wish you Luck!!!

Hi
Welcome to IM. I just like to add: educate your self on IM. And yes surrounded by mentors would cut off much time of your learning curve.
Easy way to star would be affiliate marketing and niche marketing. There are many video training at the WSO section. One that I follow, Michael's "Niche Masterplan". You can try that or any other. I would prefer video IM training for new starter.

While I think that there is some great advice in this thread, I also think you should try narrow your focus. There is a definite trap to get bogged down with information overload as there is tons of material you can go through. I would also try set some objectives as soon as possible / when you feel you have enough information as to what you would like to achieve.

Also beware of not just learning for the sake of learning without doing - there is no substitute for implementation!

Don't waste your time reading tons of ebooks as most of them are rehashed garbage. In other words you will hear the most of the same things over and over. Not to mention that every person is going to have their own view and tell you what works and what doesn't. Ebook guru Bob will tell you to do A and not B while ebook guru Larry will tell you A doesn't work and you have to do B and C. While they may all seem credible, you'll just end up confused. Confusion leads to inaction (been there, done that).

Here is what has worked for me to get me going. Travis Sago aka The Bum Marketer (Bum Marketing Method - Free Traffic Tips) provides great advice to get you going without spending any money. He focuses on getting you started with article marketing. The 30 Day Challenge by Ed Dale gives you some step by step daily actions to take to make money. Start with those first and then move on from there.

The main thing to do is start doing. You could spend years learning but the best learning is by doing. If you learn from Travis and Ed you will learn what you need to start making money. Just do some simple daily tasks and move on from there.

Then as you are making money you can move on to learning email lists, html, creating your own product, etc.

One extremely important thing to remember. Don't be afraid to make mistakes and don't wait for something to be perfect or "just right". What happens is nothing. Nothing gets sold and money isn't made (again, been there, done that). You learn by doing so learn from any mistakes and correct them as you go.

Hope this helps! Good luck and go make some money!

Everything you will need is contained in forums such as these. Just need to do some reading, research and react (take action!).

Hello,

I too am new than new, greener than green. Thank you for these posts. It's the start I was looking for, some footing. I've been toying around with CJ on a blog without much success, some adsense on a couple older sites with the about the same results.

I am pretty comfortable on Wordpress, basic site building, Photoshop but I'm getting killed on the marketing end. Of all the side trips that I've made, when I wandered in the door of this forum I knew I found something different.

So, thanks again.

Hi TheOldMan
All the above is great. The problem I had when starting out was sifting through all the information I got. Until I identified what I wanted to do and then the other hurdle was figuring out how to actually do it.
There are various aspects of Internet Marketing. There is:
Adsense
Affiliate Marketing
CPA Marketing
Ebay
Multilevel Marketing/Network Marketing
There are others, but these are generally the main ones.
If I had to do it all over again from scratch. I would first set clear goals that I needed to accomplish longterm. Then research each market individually, what it entailed and then match it to my skills.
I would then look for someone who is experiencing success within the chosen industry as my mentor to assist me in putting together a marketing strategy (Promotion vehicles/ Traffic Strategy) to help me achieve the success I desire.

Whenever you feel like giving up, think how you would feel if you realized you were just a day away from the success you desire. Stay Motivated !

There are two ways to go:
1. Slow but free
2. Fast but investment needed

So its up to you which one you choose.

In slow you can make money through SEO or networking but SEO has huge learning curve

In Fast there is ppc pay per click where you pay the advertiser for click.

In both cases you can promote other people products and get commission.

I put it in easy and simple way. But you can very easily find a lot of info on google for free.

Hi all,

I haven't been back in here for awhile unfortunately, my excuse- I've been busy...

Some of you recommended the "30 Day Challenge" and "Bum Marketing" and I went for it and that's where I've been. I'm a little over a week in on 30 Day and it's really great- to those who recommended it, thanks. It is good stuff. Bum marketing is too but I've really only so many hours in a day.

For anyone who is new I'd say 30 day challenge is boot camp. I don't know anything about PIP, sounds interesting but will have to wait.

Anyway, back to boot camp! Thanks all for the help.

I'll be back...

I recommend you to start with some article marketing related books. Article marketing is the easiest and quickest way.

Thirty Day Challenge
I would agree, this along with the war room is an excellent place to start. some people may get mad at me for saying this but maybe not even the war room until you are done with the 30 day challenge as a newbie could easily get bogged down in their. I believe that the price tag of free, their forum, and instructional step by step videos are the best thing going for a new internet prospect to get their feet wet ( or an old one for that matter ). best of luck to you my friend!

Pick up one topic and start learning about it as much as you can, I think you should start from Affiliate Marketing, read about it and if you find it interesting, read more about it.

You are already here so it should not be difficult to proceed.

A few points:

- The only early investment necessary is a domain name and hosting. Use caution for any expense beyond that. You should definitely never pay to join an affiliate program.

- Always retain a level of skepticism over the words of forum posters with a "make money online" link in their sig. Their M.O. is to sound smart in their posts to make you think "This guy knows his stuff, I better click his sig and buy his product!" If that isn't enough, these people are generally struggling webmasters who aren't really qualified to be giving advice to much of anyone. Most forums have a lot of these individuals, so you'll have to learn to deal with them. Don't let them burn you.

- Don't buy into the concept of making easy money online. I once worked for 3 days straight on the hour. Anyone who thinks they can sit down and work for 1 hour a day is mistaken.

- Beware of affiliate programs that have a lot in common with pyramid schemes. Make sure there is a legit product rather than just selling entry into the pyramid. One of the more common schemes is for them to charge you monthly for hosting, then you try to sell someone else on the "money making opportunity" (with hosting) and they in turn have to sell the same to someone else. There is essentially no product here.

find a mentor, stick to his program, learn and implement what you learn immediately. taking action is the key to success in this game.

trying to study too many things at the same time will confuse you, stick to one program for a start.

if i were you one years ago,i will get a mentor and try to apply what he teach me because internet marketing is something you should take action not waste your money to buy many ebooks/tool/software and get fed up with overload of information like me now. think wisely.

the importance is YOU SHOULD TAKE ACTION

Find one or two that make sense for you and stick to em. Don't chase after every or even most plausible-sounding dudes. What you can do is from all the replies you get, just pick one or two, no more. Then get a recommendation, max 2 from each. Stick to that.

It's true. Your going to recieve information overload, so what you need to do is latch on to someone who is going to show the the right way of doing it, so your not dowloading everything, getting 500 emails daily, joing all the coaches that email you and you can't focus on their teaching because you don't remember what they're suppossed to be teaching you. If you want help, my name is Lynne & I would be more than hapy to help you. Believe me, I've been in the maze!

hello, My opinion for every individual who seek to project with marketing affiliate program, is to appear for an affiliate marketing company that propose support to their affiliate. There are some affiliate marketing program that offers different Internet marketing tutorial technique during article and video that are so essential particularly for those beginners with the Internet business.

My tips for starting an internet marketing career:

1. Have a Mindset of Abundance - the single most important point to be borne in mind to begin with.

2. Try to gain good knowledge on the internet marketing domain, you can find many free ebooks and materials - very important to develop your marketing knowledge.

3. Decide your niche, for which you should be passionate enough, you should have fun doing things in that niche.

4. Register your domain name, should be in accordance with your niche. Then buy a hosting account.

5. Launch your website, with may be 2-3 pages to begin with.

6. Try to learn mastering at least one of the following skills.

* Article Marketing
* Copywriting
* Search Engine Optimization
* Email Marketing
* Forum Marketing
* Ezine Marketing

Remember, mastering only one of the above skills can just make you highly credible in the eyes of your prospects, which is by far the most important thing you need to achieve, in order to survive online.

Hope that helps

Cheers!!!

Hi and welcome. Mostly I would take my time in making large purchases. Try not to commit to any one big affiliate training deal until you've really researched who the people are that are making the offers. They all sound great most of the time. So keep notes and thumb through here as much as possible. Take notice from the guys and gals with lots of post and have been around

good luck

as a beginner is it wiser to outsource most of the work and use a successful site as a reference? Is there people anybody would recommend?

My number one advice is DO NOT SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON ONE on ONE COACHING at the beginning. Since you don't know what you are doing at first, people can see you coming! You will be an easy mark for scamers! Get your feet wet, read everything you can, listen, learn and do not get caught up in buying one program, then another, then another. When you buy something, learn it. Put it to use. If it doesn't work out for you, find something else, only then. Hope this helps. I wish I knew this advise from the start. It would have saved me a lot of time and money.
