There are many ways to earn money through Internet Marketing – affiliate marketing, blogging, creating your own web site, using Google AdSense and AdWords, Article Marketing, Guerilla Marketing and creating Information Products are just some of the possible ways.
Many people start playing around with these ideas, trying one after the other. On their own, each method may not appear to work, so they move on to try something else. However, it is vital to your ongoing success to set expectations and understand what methods work in the short, medium and long term time scales. You need to try all methods, but in the correct order. This way you will see results sooner, and you will be encouraged to keep going.
The longer term the goal, the more money it is likely to generate overall, and the more passive that income will be. In other words, shorter term goals are likely to earn you some money in the shortest possible time, but the maximum income is reasonably limited.
The medium term goal will generate more income overall, but it will take time before it starts to bear fruit. The long term goal is the path to the highest possible earnings, but it will take the longest time to make happen. But if you stick at it, you will reap rich rewards. Patience can be bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
Short Term Goals. What is the quickest and easiest way to earn some money, any money? For success here, you should browse the ClickBank marketplace and decide what products you want to promote. Then use Google AdWords to promote these products, using a URL (link) that points directly to ClickBank. That way, you won’t need to set up a blog or other web site, and you won’t need to spend time writing articles and getting your web site known. You may want to get some instant web sites for promotion through ClickBank, using a system such as ProfitLance.
Medium term Goals. Do all the short term goals. In addition, set up your own blog on Blogger. Immediately start monetizing your blog using Google AdSense, then start writing blog entries which discuss and review products in the ClickBank marketplace. Make your blog topical and interesting, and spend time making it popular through Guerrilla Marketing, Article Marketing in EzineArticles, and discussing it on Social Networking sites. This will increase the number of visitors over time, thereby increasing your income.
Long Term Goals. Do all the short and medium term goals! In addition, start thinking big! If your blog is starting to work for you, produce another blog, or several more. Create multiple, independent income streams, all coming in from different areas and interests. Create your own Information Product such as an eBook, then create your own web site to promote it. Get it listed in ClickBank so that other affiliate marketers can promote it too, earning you a commission on every copy sold. Investigate other affiliate marketing schemes such as those from Amazon. Create whole new web sites to market subsets of what is available.
Once you know how to categorize the various methods of generating an income from the Internet, and which ones to attempt first to generate income fast, you can build on your initial success to create a more significant income over time using the other methods. You will steadily increase the number of your income streams, all the while earning more and more money. It’s easy when you know how, and it’s already being done by tens of thousands of people all over the Internet.
