The How of Internet Marketing Part1. What does it take?

A Handbook On Handling Your Start-Up Costs For Intenet Marketing 

Everywhere in the News on Social Media, you can read about internet marketing, which promises you an overnight income. Many people do not believe and understand that it is a legitimate business with great potential.

What are the fears and frustrations of most Internet Marketers and Newbies?

When you, as an experienced Internet marketer, try to convince a newbie to start with Internet Marketing, the biggest concerns of Newbies are the start-up costs of an internet business. One of their greatest fears is committing to something they cannot pay.

The how of Internet Marketing for starters

It is a valid concern because unless you know what you are doing and the best way to get there ( Newbies don’t know), you might sign up for things you don’t need and end up paying a fortune.
We go step by step through the how of internet marketing. We shed some light on some myths and explain clearly what you can expect.

We will discuss the points below in more detail. This is divided into two parts for easier reading.

        Part 1: 

  • Reasons for starting the Internet Business
  • Family and Friends
  • Free or paid options
  • 100% free options
  • The right time to make this commitment
  • When is the right time? Is there a right time?
  • What Kind of Costs can you expect?
  • Prioritize your Money
  • Moving forward, what are the alternative options

What are the most common reasons for starting an Internet Marketing Business?

Different People have different reasons when they look into the internet marketing business.

  • If you are laid off
  • You are desperate for money
  • You want to work from home
  • You love to choose your working hours
  • Like to start something new
  • Transform your passion into a business
  • Looking for extra income
  • Want to get rich overnight ( please go and play the lottery. This article is not about that)
  • others

It doesn’t matter what reason you have; one thing should be clear to you. The Internet Marketing Business will not be successful if you treat it like a Hobby.

I have created a small handbook called Make Money with Affiliate Marketing. This is a FREE Gift for you. This is an excellent handbook if you are serious about your online business.

Make Money with Affiliate Marketing.
Work from home and be your own boss. Internet marketing means getting the word out on the web and it means creating brilliant content. The only problem is that very few people have any idea what makes the web tick. Find out what you need to know.

Internet marketing is a business so treat it like a business.

When you start an Internet Business, you might have an experience in which your family and friends are sceptical. Because of the missing understanding and knowledge, they will sit in your ear to talk you out of the idea of doing Internet Business. They properly talk you out of spending money and try to remind you of how long you have to wait until the investment pays off.

When you want to start your Internet Marketing Business, “Have a Plan.”

One thing is for sure, whenever you start a new adventure, you need a plan. You do not need to know in detail what to do, but you should have the framework laid out, and the minimal preparations can be done so you do not end up with less money than you came in.

Free or paid options for a start of an Online Business

We all know that people are always trying to sell you something. It is a myth that you have to “spend money to make money. “

In total, it is no longer valid; there is enough information on the internet to get it and do the research and learn; it just takes a lot of time and effort. Trial and Error. Frustration and when you thought you had finally done it, just another setback that tells you not yet.

You will start from scratch and go with trial and error. Pull your hair out, and deal with frustration. Most of the successful Internet Marketing Businesses have been there, including ME.

We all think we can do it alone. After a while, you realize you need a community and people who sit in the same boat and are already there where you want to be.

INVEST in your EDUCATION. That is the BEST INVESTMENT you can make.

In that way, you achieve your goals faster. It is also less time-consuming with research, trial and error.
Choose an excellent program that lets you start with excellent training, a supportive community, and free website hosting. Get a paid Program; you will not regret it.

Save yourself the frustration of learning everything from scratch and by yourself. Be Smart.

There is a program I started with, which I am still a member of, and it is an excellent program for beginners. It is free, and it also has a paid membership.

Choose the option what is right for you.

You can still join this program and access the first 5 training lessons for free. The community and one free subdomain website. Get the 7 Day FREE TRIAL.

A bit of good advice is to use your common sense of what you are prepared to spend and what you can get for free.

The program I joined has different Memberships. The premium is 49$ USD a month or Premium Plus for 99$ a month.

The big decision for you will be – “Play or Business”.  

If you want to pursue this Internet Business seriously, you will have to put money eventually on the table.

If you are playing around with it and you jump through loops to avoid spending some money for an Internet Marketing Business, then you will fail and not be successful. Treating Internet Marketing as a Hobby will not get you into the mindset you need to pursue your online marketing business successfully. To become a true entrepreneurial spirit, you have to get serious.

I know those might not be what you have planned to do, but if you are serious about your commitment to starting the Internet business, you’ll get started and have some money coming in.

Procrastination is not a solution; waiting until the right time comes or until you make megabucks to invest well will not happen. As we all know from experience, there is never a right time.
When is the right time to take on this commitment, there is no right time, and sometimes you do not have a choice.

When is the right time to start your Online Internet Marketing Business? 

There is no right time, and sometimes you do not have a choice; it is decided for you.

Sometimes the Universe decides for you, it will throw stones your way, and you think your life is difficult? It is not. It is just a sign that now is the time to start.

For example…
*When you get the pink slip from your boss,

*or you are retrenched,

*or you get a medical condition that prevents you from working,

*you might wonder if these low-pay job offers in the back of a magazine are a viable income over the next couple of years.

How long does it take to make Money with Internet Marketing?

Internet marketing can work as quickly as in a blink, but you must use common sense to shop smart and work with a system and plan.

You have to think about your choices and prioritise what is more essential and what gadget or software pays the bill, lets you automate some parts and/or increases your income.
Logging on and buying everything you think you need will quickly dry up your money resources, and you will end up with nothing.
