There Is Always Something New and Exciting!

That may be true for the world in general, particularly with ‘tech’ – every day a new phone, or something is faster. I am still waiting for a PC that delivers donuts and coffee but they seem to be lagging on that. Anyway, it’s part of what makes life exciting and makes each generation of kids more and more intelligent.

new ideas

One industry that is usually always exciting, and that seems to get a lot of new things continuously, is Internet Marketing, in particular Affiliate Marketing. There are always new programs and it is when they are new that they seem to really attract a lot of new business. They seem to come including more and more functionality every time.

Let’s face it the more things something includes the easier it is going to be to use it. In the distant past there were always the various parts that one needed to run a business, but figuring out how to make them work together was always a big challenge that probably discouraged many. In fact for that matter even with software it was a big nightmare with the various proprietary programs and how they work great but don’t work together with the other programs you already have or you may add in the future.

In a way Microsoft kind of helped with that a lot since they seemed to do everything, and had all the pieces put together; but then again they were one of the chief programs that made compatibility with other programs difficult if not impossible. It seems to have ironed out a lot in this regard somehow. In any case it is always very helpful if things work together. Most marketers are not that interested in the technical aspects and just want to do advertising, marketing and deposit the money!

As they say ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease’ and maybe that is why so many new things are being added to make Internet marketing easier and more fun. I suspect that many people that may have started out to build marketing businesses ended up giving up because there were too many technical details. I also suspect to this day many drop out because it may still seem more involved than it really has to be.

So the smart Internet marketing program, just as in the latter software generations, will do many things for you and they are just automatically included. You don’t even need to think about it!

Willing to Sacrifice to Start a Home Business?

This is a big question because the sacrifices you may be required to make may cover a lot of your life. For example are you willing to sacrifice your free time? Are you willing to sacrifice your spare change? It would be nice if these sacrifices would show a direct benefit immediately. However in most cases if you are new to Internet Marketing, it may take you a while to see anything in return for your sacrifice.

it's worth it

Pretty much anybody who ever tried to do anything significant has had to sacrifice something in order to get it. Very few things are ever delivered ‘on a silver platter’. However sometimes if you think ahead and have a long-range plan, you might mitigate the sense of having to give up something to get what you want.

This can be as simple as squirreling away $5 a week. That is less than or equal to one lunch out or one fancy coffee, and it adds up to more than $200 in one year. If your situation is such that all you can spare without noticing is $1-$2, then do that instead. The point is to save some money so that you have something to operate with when you start a business.

Contrary to the usual belief, it is very inexpensive to stat and run a business on the Internet. Particularly if you compare it to an offline business, you will see you are spending pennies on the dollar in comparison. Probably if people didn’t believe that ‘you have to have money to make money’ which may or not be more or less true, you can start an online business for next to nothing if necessary.

Surely as with all things, if you have at least a little money to work with things can be considerably easier for you. If you can learn how to do things yourself you can save some of your operating money. Then as you progress you could certainly delegate those tasks to someone or something that can save you some time and effort.

The truth is though if you are enjoying what you are doing and are really enthusiastic about having your own business, you won’t see it as so much toil and trouble. Work can be fun and like anything else it is all about how you look at it. So in addition to a plan and some time to build a foundation before you even start, you might want to take some time to build your mindset in a productive direction.

Internet Marketing – How to Believe in What You Sell

There are a few good reasons to use the products or services that you are selling. The greatest reason is because that way you really can believe in what you are saying because you know it to be a fact. This goes such a long way – much farther than so-called ‘testimonials’ from others.

Believe it!

Another good reason to use the products you are selling is that when you have sold a certain amount then you can feel that you have paid for your own through those sales, versus taking the money out of your pocket. You often see ads that say ‘buy two get one free’ and ‘sell three yours is free’. Whether purely psychological or not it works.

It never hurts to know the ‘ins and outs’ of things so that you can give really thorough statistics, etc. when writing ad copy. The more actual facts you can come up with the better. Of course beyond yourself if you can cite other reputable sources such as studies that back up your contention, then all the better.

It just seems it is easier to get into the spirit of things if you are participating yourself. This really shows the universe that you believe in what you are doing enough so that you would buy it yourself! Being actively engaged in anything will affect the tone of everything you do. Being a user really gives you insight into how things work that you might not know otherwise.

It is just a natural to make ‘back-end’ sales to your customers, especially with things you are using yourself. For example if your main product is an affiliate program and you use a certain list builder to help you sell that program you have a natural ‘lead in’.

When your customers sign up for the program, you can contact them. Thank them for joining your team, offer your assistance if they need it, and discreetly mention that you are using XYZ List Builder and getting some great results that help you to succeed with your affiliate program. Then sign off with a link for them to click if they are interested.

There are a lot of people who really do not know what they are selling and it sometimes shows. This doesn’t mean if you are new and/or have no actual first-hand experience, that you can’t write ad copy for something. You can still quote others – experts in the field and the same studies mentioned for statistics. If you ‘read up’ on the subject – study the website, read all the documentation you can, you can still be convincing.

Whichever way you have to look at it, keep it real! (tell the truth).
