more answers...

A few days ago I asked you what you wanted to know more about in
internet marketing, and the response has been overwhelming.

Here is another question and answer:

2) not having enough thorough guidance how to set up an internet
business .Somewhere along the line,one does get lost if you do not
have any internet knowledge of what you are doing -e.g. terminologies

I think that is a great question. It is so easy to get caught up in
the massive amount of knowledge that is floating around. If you are
like me, you get many emails everyday touting the latest newest
best program for getting ric.h online.

If you want to learn about getting started online and you go
surfing, you can spend hours, download thousands of pages of
information, read it all, and not be any further along than
you were when you started looking for information. You literally
get lost in the avalanche of information.

I advocate the KISS principle - keep it simple, stupid.

I believe there are two legitimate ways to make mo.ney
online: Create your own product and sell it, or find someone
else's product and sell it.

Either way you have to sell. Period. No way around it.

You might ask about all the multi-level and pyramid and 'just
invest 10 dollars and you will get millions in two weeks' programs.
Do you read scam? Move on. Do not pass go. Spend your money on a
dinner out.

To make real money online you must sell. Sell what you create or
sell what someone else creates. But you must sell. I really believe
that anyone that tells you differently is just downright not honest.

If you are just getting started, sell someone else's product.

Your game plan will look like this:

Start with just a squeeze page (web page with just a headline, 3
bullet points and an opt in box to collect names and emails)

Build a list.

Develop a relationship with your list. Teach them what you know,
however little it may be.

Recommend products to your list that you have used.

Once you have been building a list for awhile, and are comfortable
with it, and are regularly corresponding with it, begin to develop
your own product.

Once you have your own product, simply begin to promote it to your

You may have noticed that I recommend starting with a list, rather
than a sales page. Remember, if you are selling something for
someone else, you do not need a sales page.

By the way, never send traffic directly to an affiliate site.

Always sign them up to your list first. That way you can send that
same traffic to the site multiple times. If you send them directly
to a web site, and they do not buy, you have lost whatever you
spent on traffic.

I genuine hope this information helps, and if you still have
questions on this topic, please send them to me.
