Some Simple Advice To All Internet Marketing Newbies

Like the physical world, in Internet business, one has to spend money to earn money. If one resorts to the various so-called free methods, one has to live with crawling-slow-paced progress, if there is any progress at all. This could actually be a tough business!

Having been involved with Internet home based businesses for about 2 years,Guest Posting I continue to be bombarded by an endless barrage of offers in the inbox of my e-mails. All these sales letters claim that my search for the perfect Internet business should stop because what they are offering is the ultimate "Secret" for all Internet marketers for making a massive income in the shortest possible time and with very little cost and no effort involved.

How often have you heard this: "Running your own Internet home based business is a piece of cake!" Very often the exact opposite happens for many eager but new home based business owners.

I had also heard how easy it was to rake in tens of thousands of dollars practically over night so that one can have all kinds of "free time" and extra cash for traveling and shopping at my favorite stores. Many free websites were being offered. What I needed was to have one set up and running and I was on the way to becoming an Internet millionaire in no time!

Later I was advised as follows:

"If you really want to succeed in your own Internet home based business, be it an affiliate marketing or your own products and services, you will have to work hard at making it successful. You must treat it as your serious job or business, not as your hobby. You have to have a serious business plan which you can adhere to with full commitment."

Everybody thinks it would be great if just with a few easy clicks you can be running on auto-pilot, bringing in massive amount of cash. But without some kind of planning and consistent effort you have to be prepared for encountering failures.

From my own experience, there is no such thing as cheap "secret" or magic in this business! Also, despite the fact that it is "home-based, it is from far from being simple and easy with no effort. One has to work as hard if not harder than the physical brick and mortar world.

Like the physical world, you have to spend money to earn money. If you resort to the various so-called free methods, you have to live with crawling-slow-paced progress, if there is any progress at all.

I do not pretend to be an expert because I am not and always lay the hard facts and reality on the table when talking to new and potential members who want to join my team....... This is a tough business!

To elaborate my point, let's look at one effort you have to make: Among many things you need to do, one obvious one is to ensure a steady flow of traffic of visitors to your site. One example is search engine optimization. Search engines are the first things Internet surfers look for when they are searching for goods or services. Where your website appears to the visitors in their search results is of utmost importance.

The objective of all Internet marketers is to ensure that their URLs appear right at the top of the first page or at least the first 50th position since this would mean higher chances of the visitors clicking on the most prominent URLs.

There are many ways to optimize your site so that search engines will list your site higher in their rankings.

First and foremost, it is the keyword. Keywords are the foundation on which the entire search engine system works. If a top ranking site suddenly drops drastically, it may mean that certain content of the website has become invisible or inaccessible to search engine spiders and crawlers. Very often certain particular keyword or phrase has been ineffective due to fierce competition. So as you can see, this is not easy. You have to be consistently on your toes all the time.

Many have succeeded to enjoy passive income but only after much effort, time and financial commitment. Hence despite all the hype there is no magic or bed of roses here. There are really no substitutes for time and effort in developing this so-called home based online business. If you have a dream of getting an "overnight success", I am afraid you have to keep on dreaming.

Having been "negative" though realistic, I would like to stress that that once you have put in enough effort, time and paid your dues, so to speak, you can begin to have real success with a home based business. The feeling of achievement is sweet and incredible especially when you are working alone.

Once you have achieved a handsome ROI to allow you to reinvest in more programs to further drive traffic to your sites and hence improving your business, you would enjoy the nature of this business because of it's time flexibility instead of the 9 to 5 job in the conventional business.

It gives you the power to decide when to work and when to do something else like having holidays in far-away places. The biggest advantage of this business is the ability of having holidays while making money at the same time but without your full attention because the business could be put on auto-mode.

In conclusion, you have to persevere in this business, do not give up as the final fruit of your effort would be sweet!
