If at first you don't succeed, reinvent yourself. This is vital in Internet marketing. Test, test, test. That isrepparttar key that unlocksrepparttar 127278 door of success online. Nineteen times out of twenty your first idea won't make money. So what do you do? Give up? No! Learn why and move on.

There are many 'secrets' out there - most of them are free if you know where to look - that will tell you how to target your audience, which product to sell, how to get traffic, how to write great sales copy, how to create your own products, how to automate your business.

I have achieved all of that. I don't try to, or profess to make a fortune - that was never my intention. But almost as a by-product of doing what I love - writing, teaching and helping others - I generate a steadily growing income - currently about $250 a month. Enough to cover my costs and show a nice profit.

I've got to this stage by learning everything I can. I read endless reports and ebooks, spend time in forums, and, most importantly, learn from my own experiences.
