6 Internet Marketing Myths

6 Internet Marketing Myths - By: goalsetter

Every day thousands of people go online to make money but most of them fail miserably because they either truly believe one of the 6 Internet Marketing Myths or or all of them. You can read them below and discover the grain of salt in all of them.

Myth #1: Internet Marketing is EASY

This is probably the biggest myth of all, and let me tell you Internet marketing is hard, takes time, effort not mention money and anyone who suggests otherwise is trying to sell you a bunch of horse hockey. Granted that it's comparatively easier to brick and mortar in that there's no inventory to carry, no shipping of goods no sales staff and virtually no overhead, but a lot of work is still involved.

Myth #2: ANYONE Can Make Money Online

Folks, this is simply not true. Unless someone gets off their lazy boy recliner and download/read everything they can about internet marketing, and put an action plan in motion, they will never make a dime on the internet. DO NOTHING, MAKE NOTHING.

Myth #3: You Can "GET RICH QUICK" On the Net!

This is the trap that a lot of newbie internet marketers falls into including myself when I first started, why? because scammers make it sounds so easy and let me tell you, chasing "get rich quick scheme" is a WASTE OF TIME!, money and energy. It just won't happen overnight, instead do some research and find out what people really want and need then give it to them especially a sense of reality.

Myth #4: It's FREE to Do Business Online

This is one of my favorite myths because I believed it during my first year of internet marketing and it just wasn't true then, it isn't true today. Compared to opening your first coffee shop or gift shop in downtown Los Angeles, internet business start-up cost and maintenance cost is pretty low. Once you have your domain set up, you only pay for internet connection, advertising and ongoing educations, that's it. You can't expect to make money selling free stuff and ask others to do the same. Folks! it takes money to make money.

Myth #5: It's TOO LATE to Start an Internet Business

Most internet marketers would love to hear people say "It's too late now, too many competitions, I should just pack my bags and go home, the internet is too complicated, etc...". You know why? the less people they have to compete with the better which in turn will make them more money.

The fact is, it's never ever too late to start anything and that includes internet business. I firmly believe that the internet is not going anywhere and you should too. Every year the stats will show you the number of people shopping online are increasing, their spending dollars are growing and the number of people going online is increasing also.

Myth #6: The BIG Money Talk is JUST HYPE

As I've told you before, "it takes money to make money?" Well it's true, although you will be hard pressed to find experienced internet marketers to tell how much they spend on promoting and advertising. Sometimes, you have to dig a little deeper to find the truth in every hype you read. It's a fact that the people that makes alot of money online also spends alot of money on advertising, tools, resources and know how to get the job done.

If you are willing to take the necessary action to make 'big money' happen for you - it will. It takes time. You can criticize, be skeptical and sure that 'big money' can't happen for you - and it won't. Sit down and write a financial and a sound business plan. Local Chamber of Commerce can give all the info you need to get started.

If you believe that you will succeed you're right, if you believe that it won't work, you're right also.

To summarize, you have heard people's story how they're making a fortune on the internet and how easy it is but the reality is some stories are NOT out of this world or unrealistic but it just doesn't happen overnight. You just have to apply a bit of common sense into it, find what you love to do, have a game plan, stay focus and you my friend might find the right opportunity to make all your dreams come true.

5 Ways To Build Your List Fast

By Justin Michie

List building can take a lot of time simply because many strategies do not work right away. A perfect example of this is article submissions. You can wait weeks or months for your articles to make their way onto other people's sites. There are much better methods available to you.

Here are five free strategies that will enable you to build your list much more quickly.

1. Ad swaps involve finding other marketers in your niche, or a complementary niche, who have an equally sizeable list. You provide each other with ads to promote to your lists for mutual benefit. In essence, this doubles the number of your potential buyers and multiplies your chances of enticing people onto your own list.

2. Giveaways enable you to distribute viral materials that contain links to your opt-in form. By encouraging people to pass your giveaway around, you can quickly reach a significant number of prospects. With giveaway events, you can leverage the marketing efforts of the participating marketers.

3. Press releases can work faster than article marketing, although both are excellent ways to build your list. With press releases, web site owners and online magazine editors are looking for news. By making your opt-in offer newsworthy, you can create a press release that gets posted immediately onto those sites and through email newsletters.

4. Forum participation is an excellent way to reach out to people who are in your niche. Find niche-related forums, respond to people's questions with valuable advice, and plug your squeeze page giveaway in your signature file.

5. Social marketing puts you right in front of the people who are most likely to want what you are offering. Visit relevant blogs and add snippets of helpful information in response to posts that refer to the topic of your giveaway. This is key. You want your plug to naturally flow with the topic of the post so that people will be anxious to find out how your product can help them.

When choosing social media sites and forums, make sure they allow do-follow links and that you can add live links in your signature file, as this is the whole purpose of this form of marketing. Not all blogs and forums allow active links.

All of these methods work. It's a matter of finding the ones best suited to your offer. Forums and social media work best if they have a significant number of visitors or members. If the numbers are small, it will be tougher to get the traffic that you need to build your list quickly.

By utilizing all five methods, you can reach more of the right people faster. Meet their expectations, and you will grow your list.

List building is one activity that you can share with other marketers for your mutual benefit. Not only will you be able to grow your list in record time, but when done correctly, you can see the results of your efforts years down the road.

Unstoppable List Building

Unstoppable List Building – How To Attract Subscribers Quickly
By Justin Michie

You are probably quite familiar with products that promise to solve your dilemma about effective list building. Many of them don't deliver. When you reach the end, you're either overwhelmed with information, or you are left wondering what you missed.

Justin Michie's report "Unstoppable List Building", which he is offering free for a limited time, finally delivers on a much needed Internet marketing subject. He provides only the information you need to understand how to make list building effective and lays out a plan in easy to follow steps.

You can grab your copy of the Unstoppable List Building report

At 65 pages, it takes you through the basics of opt-ins to monetizing your promotions to viral marketing and the importance of testing to maximize your opt-in rate. I particularly like the section that talks about how to avoid fraudulent signups.

Overall, the report will get you on track quickly to building your list properly and effectively.

For seasoned marketers, you might find the opening few chapters to be a slow read, but when you hit the section on Viral Marketing, the pace picks up dramatically. Before I'd finished this chapter, I was anxious to get started with my own viral project to grow my list.

Justin shares some great tips on where to attract people to your opt-in list and he points out the massive benefits to building your list. Imagine how your list will help you to find JV partners, launch new products, beat out other affiliates in product launches and contests and, perhaps most importantly, enable you to create significant income on demand.

It's easy to relate to his story about list building while "not really" building a list. That's when you plod along building a list of a few hundred people, rather than bursting through the gate adding hundreds of subscribers every day.

Justin shows you exactly how to do that in terms anyone can understand and apply.

In the final pages of his report, Justin provides the exact services and resources he uses to succeed with his business. These include everything from where to find affiliate programs, web hosts and the all-important reliable auto responders to training and tracking, and much more. This alone is invaluable as it saves you the time and effort of seeking out and testing systems for yourself.

Unstoppable List Building provides real meat and is one of the best reports of its kind that I've read.

Blogging Tips

Blogging is one way of using words to come up with an art. Basically, blogs were first introduced as weblogs, the word refers to the log that is a web-server’s log file. It was created when web logging hit the virtual market. Since its inception in the mid-1990s, web logging gradually saturated the virtual community making the Internet a viable source of greater information.

However, with web logging, you still need a web site and domain names, but with blogging, you do not need anything just an account with blog service providers. In most cases, these kinds of blogs are free of charge.

With the onset of blogging in the industry, personal journal has become a common ground for people who wish to be known all over the world. The fame is often more imaginary than real, albeit that blogs can be read anywhere in the world that an internet connection can be found.

Generally, blogs are created for personal use. Like a journal, people can write their daily adventures, sentiments, and whatever ideas they want to express online.

Nevertheless, with the advent of the online businesses, blogs have gradually moved into the limelight by providing businesses a chance to boost their profile online.

Business blogs are, basically, created to advertise the services or products of a certain web site or online business in order to increase online sales.

Moreover, business blogs are also one way of promoting the company so that other readers will know that a certain company exists online. With blogs, entrepreneurs are able to establish a name in the virtual market through articles that can be very useful in the reader’s life.

From there, you can make money out of blogs by simply syndicating it to your business’ web site. This can be done through RSS technology.

So, if you are thinking to create a blog, whether for business or for pleasure, you need to know some tips that could help you get through and make your blog one of the interesting blogs online.

Here are some blogging tips:

1. Consider your audience

Even if your blog is generally personal, still, it would be better to consider the minds of your readers. You have to think of something that would interest them.

After all, most of the reasons of people who write blogs are not at all confined to their own personal motives. Most of them would love to be “heard” (or read) and would love to be known, in some way or another, even for just a minute. Hence, it is very important to come with a write up that everybody can understand, not necessarily that these people can relate to it but they can understand it.

2. Pictures speaks a thousand words

To make your blogging worth the browsing effort of your readers, it would be extremely nice if you put some pictures in it. It does not necessarily mean you have to place a picture of yourself. Any photographs will do as long as it does not pose danger or insult to anyone who will be reading your blog and that you have permission to use them!

3. Make constructive and beneficial blogs

Even if you are free to write anything you wan to say to the world, still, it would be better to create some write-ups that would be beneficial to your readers.

After all, its information technology that you have there so better be inclined to provide information rather than sheer quirky entertainment.

4. Avoid making multifaceted and complicated blogs

In order to have an interesting blog, try not to use some highly technical and highfalutin words. After all, it is not a science discourse or a debate that you are making, so better stick to simple facts and short blogs.

Bear in mind that most people who use the Internet usually do more scanning than scrutinizing each site word for word. Therefore, it would be better to come with blogs that will not bore your readers just because you have these lengthy articles.

5. Make it interactive

As much as possible and if your capacity will allow it, make your blog interactive. Yu can do this by placing some video or audio clips in your blog.

You can even place an area for comments or for some feedback. In this way, you can get some impressions or reactions of other people. Who knows, you might even gain some friends just by making them feel at home in your blog site.

Indeed, blogs are not created just for the mere fun of it; they also have their own purpose in the world of the Internet.
Therefore, for people who wish to harness their craft, as far as writing is concerned, blogs are the best way to do it. Blogging is the contemporary medium for creative and commercial writing.
