Internet Marketing – What is it?

Internet marketing!

One small phrase that encompasses so much that you say it to people who do not know and it becomes an entire conversation to try and explain it!

How is money being made?

The first thing to really understand is how money is being made online in all its forms.  Money is what really makes the internet marketing world go round and round!

90% of regular people do not even understand how money is made online.  Ask people how Google make their money and most simply do not know that google made most of their money by advertising placed on their own search results and participating web pages (Adwords and Adsense).

Now if we think of Facebook.

They make a majority of their revenue from sponsored ads.  Just think of the value these two websites give, and you can quickly see how they can make so much money through the advertising on their sites.

So who advertisers on their sites…

Internet marketing strategies

I am sure every one has seen sponsored ads on their Facebook profiles, sponsored ads on Amazon and adverts on Google and seen what is advertised, but how do they make money?

E-commerce

Selling product that are dropshipped or stock (most of the time dropshipped) to the end user.

Affiliates

Affiliates can sell pretty much any type of product listed here, and the supplier gives the affiliate a commissions.  As an example, lets say Bob is selling comics via his E-commerce store.  As an affiliate I learn I can sell these via Facebook for him and get 20% commissions for doing so.

There are ooodles of products that can be sold by affiliates, from Amazon affiliates all the way through to “binary trading bots”.

In reality you would have bought something through an affiliate, and not even realised it.

Coaching and courses

People sell coaching programs in pretty much every niche, from “How to build a Facebook following” through to ” How to get more people into your nightclub ”  There really is coaches for a lot of niches!

Digital products

People sell digital products, this could be things such as “how to make your own chicken run” all the way through to “how loose your belly in 60 days.”

These can be fantastic learning tools and how to’s.

programs

There are mountains of programs online.   Il make a full list I can think of later on in another blog post!

But you can see a few in the “programs to join” section.

Programs I class as  –

  • PTC
  • MLM
  • Network markerting
  • Bitcoin Mining
  • Bitcoin trading
  • auto trading platforms
  • Revshares
  • Any other program where you pay for access to a members area
  • HYIP (yuck!)
  • and there are tonnes more

You can see some of the examples of programs in my “earn and learn” category on my blog.

Selling services

There is also a multitude of services that support all of the above and which you can sell to offline marketers to make money too.

These include –

  • website development
  • Coding
  • social media marketing (paid and non paid)
  • PPC
  • Media buying
  • SEO
  • Branding
  • Email marketing
  • Retargeting
  • and much more…

You can sell those and freelance yourself, outsource them to your goals of promoting your wares, or even go as far as building an offline business helping companies, and outsourcing the work

All of these services can have products, courses and coaching around them too.  Sell these also to each and every business online and Offline!
