“Internet marketing, also known as web marketing, online marketing, webvertising, or e-marketing, is referred to as the marketing (generally promotion) of products or services over the Internet. “ Wikipedia
Promoting products and services, but you could also promote an idea, an interest, a passion, or simply you may want to make money using Internet as the main tool, while sharing your passion.
This page is not for “Internet Guru’s”; this page is dedicated to the “newbies” and this is because I just went through the first stages of making myself present on the Internet and I am willing to share my experience with others.
So, I will keep it simple and I am open to answer any questions you may have after reading this page.
To be able to make a presence on the Internet, you have to have an website or a blog (generally speaking).
The most independent way to be on the internet is to have your own website, like this one.
First step: buying a domain. Is important to keep in mind the purpose of the website and choose a name that will help other people and the search engines to find it. Do some research and decide what name you choose.
Hosting the domain is the next step and vital. You want to have a your website hosted by a company that would ensure your website would not be more offline that online!
After you have your website online and running, the Internet Marketing starts!
Nobody wants to be on an island, and if there is no traffic to your website, even with the most fabulous ideas, nobody knows it!
Yes, you can buy traffic, but the most important traffic is the real traffic, the “organic” one that comes because your website was found in a search, by the search engines.
Another way of sharing your idea is to blog on dedicated blogs: it is totally free and is easy to get it up running.
A slight inconvenience is the advertising you get on your page, although you can also put some ads of your own. A good thing is that being under an authority site, is easier to make your presence felt with the same tools.
There is a blog platform on an authority site that pays you an incredible commission for advertising on your page, no matter what you write about!
Could be about your passion, or about the business you are promoting. I ranked first page on google in few hours after I wrote my post!
Another good thing about it is that it gives you training, depending upon what you want to do with your blog.
I hope this helps :),
