Your first priority as an internet marketer is to generate traffic. Everyone having a business online is seeking traffic because it is your life-blood. Without traffic your business will be stagnant and will not make money.

You will have your website or blog ready to go, but no one will know where you are or how to find you on the internet without traffic. So, as you proceed you will find that getting traffic is going to be your number one priority, forever!

A list will allow you to generate money on demand or at will. Therefore, you are going to build your list of prospects early on. This is where you will collect names into your autoresponder series through which you will be able to broadcast messages to your list about your various products and/or services.

By building a list of prospects now you will gather perhaps thousands of customers that you will be able to offer your products and services to. You can offer all of your products including affiliate products to this list of buyers, thus increasing your sales and profits and making money on demand.

I am sure you have heard the saying, “the money is in the list.” It is true and it is the way that all of the top money producers earn a living online. Once you have established your list you will always have someone to market your products to.

And because they have already become familiar with you, whether or not they have ever bought from you at all, you will have established some form of trust and credibility with them, making it easier for them to buy from you.

Further, if a person has given you their email address they are essentially letting you know that they want to hear from you. So why not take advantage of the opportunity and begin marketing your products to them right away?

They are interested in what you have to offer and are more likely to purchase your offer. And one of the major advantages is that as your list grows you will be able to make your offers to your list over and over again by using your autoresponder software to contact them via email.

Building your list will increase sales conversions and profits from your business simply because you have an established relationship with your subscribers. The major reason a person will buy from you is because they trust you. And your subscribers have already established this trust relationship.

If you have a list, you have customers, and this will allow your business to have a life of its own and essentially create an income on auto-pilot. People who have taken the time to build a decent list become one of the top 1% of earners online.

Once you have built your list you will have a very valuable asset that you will be able to charge others for. You will be able to charge other marketers for sending solo ads or other forms of marketing material to your list. This creates another source of income for you!

The Hottest Tip For The Newbie Marketer

Most marketers come online in today’s market seeking an opportunity to supplement their incomes. However, once online the main ingredient for success is often out of reach for the beginning internet marketer.

They are generally bombarded with so much information overload that they do not know where to start nor what it takes to become a successful online entrepreneur.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not such an easy task to make a living online. There are many people who have been online for many years who have not experienced the sweet taste of success.

Of course, there are those who have managed to eke out a living online, yet even for most it has not been an easy task. And, many entrepreneurs who have managed to make a living online have been hit recently by the latest Google Panda and Penguin algorithm.

The new algorithm has placed many online entrepreneurs in a position where they are now making little to no money online while many of them are desperately tring to recover and recoup their losses. They have been essentially ‘Google slapped,’ and are victims of the notorious, ‘Google Dance.’

It only stands to reason that if you have veterans…experienced online marketers clamoring for answers as to how to make a living online, what chance does the beginning online marketer have?

There are many things that a new marketer needs to know, and most of it will unfortunately be discovered through trial and error. Sadly enough, most’newbies’ think that they will be able to go online and within 30 days or so have a business that will be up and running and in profit.

However, there are two main factors that a beginning marketer should be aware of. The first being that it takes money to make money. If you were in a brick-and-mortar offline business it would require investment dollars. And quite a few more investment dollars than an online business. So, put aside funds to invest in your online business.

You can implement free marketing techniques of course, but do not depend entirely on free marketing techniques. Once you have a little to invest spend wisely and invest in tools (software) and not this HOT new program and the next. Stay focused!

The second, and the most crucial and outstanding factor a new marketer fails to realize is that growing a list of prosepective customers is key to both short-term and long-term financial online success. If a beginning marketer realizes at the start that the most important thing they could do is build their list day in and day out, they would be more successful much sooner, rather than later.

Why? Because your list is your leads and your customers that you have built a trust relationship and credibility with and in which you will be able to email anytime and make money on demand. You will be able to send a mailing to your list in the morning and have cash in hand in the evening.

Yet, most ‘newbie’ marketers skip this step altogether in the beginning because they are naive and interested in the make-money-quick scenario. However, if a new marketer would grasp these concepts early on in their internet marketing career and incorporate it into their business plan daily, they will be among the 1% of successful online entrepreneurs in the shortest amount of time.

Panda And Penguin Internet Marketing Tips

Only 1% of online marketers make money online? Even those who were making a living online were recently hit by the new Panda and Penguin algorithm. Some businesses experienced the ‘Google slap’ and were removed from their lofty first page positions to the back pages of Google and some businesses were hit so hard that their websites were completely annihilated and removed from the search engine totally.

Imagine waking up in the morning to see that your money-making website is no longer on the first page of Google. Then, checking your bank account to find that it is empty! That has been the experience of many online marketers recently. Just imagine that your website is not only no longer on the first page of Google, but upon further investigation, not listed at all.

All of the hard work and sweat that went into building a website. SEO (Search Engine Optimization), keyword research, linking program, article writing and more was all for naught, and all to have it go up in smoke in one day!

I know of a few business owners who were hit so hard that their incomes were completely wiped out. Even after months of trying to recover, they are still experiencing the wrath of the ‘Google slap.’

Hopefully, this will help the beginning marketer understand the concepts of what Google is looking for and to help the beginner start off on the right track, and perhaps prevent the above scenario in the future, the ‘Google slap.’

Following are a few tips to get you started on the right track:

  • The first thing that is very much over-looked by most marketers is the importance of building a list. We have all heard it, ‘the money is in the list.’ However, it is most often ignored. I have noticed that most people are just not interested in building a list. They want to make money and that is the bottom line.
  • However, building a list will allow you to be among the top 1% of the money-making producers online. A list allows you to make money on demand. All you have to do is send your affiliate offer or your product or service to your list and you’ll be able to make money on demand and in one day.
  • When you hear about some guru that made $14,000 in one day it is more than likely that they presented their offer to their list. This is the one secret that most marketers do not incorporate into their marketing plan. Yet, it is the key to making money at will.
  • So, if you are a beginning internet marketer, make the investment in an auto-responder service and make your main objective building your client base. In the long run you will be in a much better position than most.
  • Secondly, due to the new Panda and Penguin algorithm it is important that you write content so that the average person can read and understand it. Do not write for the search engine robots with content and/or articles filled with all of your keywords. In other words don’t over optimize your content or you will be penalized for this by Google.
  • Also, make sure that the links that you share are relevant to your site’s content. If you have a dog grooming website, don’t link to a swimming pool website. Share your links on other sites that are similar to your own.
  • You will also be rewarded for your social media links. Most everyone has Facebook. However, make sure that you include the top three social media sites which are Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google Plus. Your sites will receive higher ranking by creating content for these sites. If you want to be on the first pages of Google this is how to get there.
  • Also, go to Avatar.com and set up your avatar picture and post it on all of your pages so that Google will know who you are. This also helps in the search rankings.
  • Additionally, article marketing is not dead. Just make sure that you post your articles to authority sites or hub pages and not to article directories that would be considered spam link farms. You may also post your comments on blogs that are again, related to your site content.
  • Set up Facebook fan pages or Facebook groups which will also be highly ranked in the search engines.

Hopefully this information will help the beginning internet marketer in your online endeavors and get you off to a good start and the more experienced marketer on the right track towards recovery and success if you have been ‘slapped’. Good luck and much success to you.
