If you have any further questions after reading these; please, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comment section or send me an email. I would be more than happy to help you out!
1. Is Internet Marketing an actual thing?
Yes, it is. Simply put, internet marketing is the process of selling digital (services) or physical products (clothes) online and getting a commission for it. An internet marketer your job would be to create a website or landing pages that offer information on products they are promoting. So if you were an internet marketer, your role would be to connect the customer with the product or information they are looking for.
And if a purchase is made through a link that you own, then you will earn a commission for the purchase… Isn’t that cool?
2. Am I qualified to be an internet marketer?
Absolutely, in fact, you don’t have to have any prerequisites. And no, you don’t have to be a brain surgeon or a super tech-savvy computer scientist/programmer. All you need is a computer and Wifi; with these two things, you can do anything you want. And get paid for it! But, you shouldn’t just create anything, only things that you are passionate about and won’t get bored of in a couple of months.
Don’t mix passion with money, or you won’t see results from either. Because let’s be real, some of the things that we are passionate about, we couldn’t deal with every day. Which is why we call them hobbies. And when you try to mix a hobby with money, you’d probably only make strides sometimes. Of course, there are some people who turn their passions into a fortune, but they had a plan. Before they went all in.
And that’s what you’ll need, a plan. Find your audience and start building your brand.
3. When Can I Start?
You can GET STARTED TODAY! There isn’t just one place you can to start. There are many! You can become an internet marketer for any of your favorite brands or companies. There are hundreds of brands and companies out there who have affiliate programs. But not all. So what you would have to do is: search for the brand or company that you are interested in, go to their website, and scroll all the way down and click on the words “Affiliate program”, or “Become a member”, or “Become an associate”.
Here are some examples.
These aren’t the only companies that you can choose from, this is just to give you an idea of what to look for when choosing.
4. When Will I Make Money?
This is a question that no one could really answer because it depends solely on you. These “internet gurus” make you promise of instantaneous success in days or how much they’ve made a month, but they never show you how much they’ve made at the beginning of their journey. The only results you are going get is the ones that you create for yourself. Create your own journey and get the results you want. It’s okay to set goals for yourself, there are people right now who are making 10k+ a month if you don’t believe me check it out for yourself. It’s no secret, hard work and dedication play a big role in these types of accomplishments. You can make as much money as you want… Why not put the work in?
5. What is the difference between PPC and PPV?
The only difference between Pay-Per-Click (PPC) and Pay-Per-View (PPV) are the words at the end. PPC is the pop-up ads or banners that we see when we’re watching videos on youtube or when we’re scrolling down a blog. PPV are those 15-30 second ads that we see before or between videos. The difference is the way that you get paid. Yes, you can get paid for embedding ads onto your website and/or running an ad during your videos. With PPC, you get paid when someone clicks on your ad or purchases something through that ad. And with PPV, someone has to watch the ad (15-30 sec) before you get paid for running it. Many people prefer PPC over PPV.
6. Can I Really Create An Online Business?
Heck Yeah! You can create one TODAY. Of course, before you can start building your online business, you will need to create a website, this will be the foundation of your business and ultimately your success. Any self-made Entrepreneur you see online today, have their own website. So why shouldn’t you have one as well? Building your own website doesn’t take a long time to build, it’s actually a lot easier now than it used to be. Now, most of the hard work is done for you!
There are many tools to automate the process of building and customizing a website. Nothing in life is every easy, but, getting a basic website up and is no problem. In fact, you can do it right here, right now.
This is a free website creator. If you want to move (re-direct) your free site to an owned domain (your own .com) you can do that later on.
