Be An Online Marketer and Master Search Engine Marketing!
Where do you start if you want to be an online marketer? It’s a tough question. There are lots of ways to begin your way on the bumpy journey. Just make sure you are aware that it WILL be a bumpy ride. First things first: do a lot of research. Find out what kind of thing appeals to you most. It could be affiliate programs or maybe you like the idea of selling other peoples products for a commission etc.
There are a ton of options, and 1000 times more hype. This is why it`s so important to do as much research as you can before starting out. Sure, you can go the long way round, which is how a lot of us start out, but that`s even more of a bumpy ride…
So lets say you`ve decided on where you want to start. You don`t have a product of your own, so you decide to sell other peoples information products, just as an example. Don`t make the mistake that so many people do, by trying to sell something you haven`t personally tested. Put it this way: Who would YOU prefer to buy from? Someone who knows absolutely nothing about the product they`re selling? Or someone who has had firsthand experience with the product they`re selling? You know it`s person number 2, right?
So test the product first. Learn everything there is to know about it. If people can trust you to give an honest opinion, they`ll be back for more. Great way of getting contacts AND repeat customers. Now you need a website, and we’d like to think you’ll consider Aerohost for that (see hosting plans here). You don’t need to start with anything fancy, just our basic Bronze plan will suffice to get you going. Owning your own domain name adds credibility to your site, and it really is a ‘must have’ these days, so get one as soon as you feel ready. Try and get a domain name with at least one major keyword in it – the search engines will give you a higher ranking.
