The answer to this question is not an easy one in many respects, but mainly It's almost impossible for one answer to be correct for every circumstance.

I began my venture into cyber space with absolutely no computer knowledge what-so-ever. Not only was I computer illiterate I didn't knowrepparttar InterNet from a fishing Net.

One ofrepparttar 133605 very first things I learned was thatrepparttar 133606 Internet can be a very lonely and impersonal world. Sitting alone in front of a computer screen hour after hour day after day and keeping your focus is not an easy task.

My first suggestion is to establish contacts with like minded people as soon as you can. Not only will this help keep you from feeling isolated it will allow you and they to take advantage of each others experiences and expertise.

I'm not saying bring others into your business, but networking has been a part of good business practices sincerepparttar 133607 beginning of time. It just makes good business sense to take advantage of allrepparttar 133608 resources that are available.

How is this going to help me get traffic to my website you ask! Well, in a number of ways. Some of these networking pals will have websites that compliment yours, trade links.

Links help in a number of ways, they push traffic fromrepparttar 133610 linking site to yours, and they garner you higher rankings on some search directories.

The Tale of Mr Newbie and The Truth About Total Failure

If you are new to Internet marketing and your web business makes no money, or worse still a loss, you needn't worry about looking a fool - chances are nobody will ever know!


Well, if you really fail that dismally, chances are no-one visited your site anyway. Itís a fact that most people new to Internet marketing, "newbies" as they are affectionately referred, very often follow a very similar pattern of evolution.

Firstly, Mr Newbie gets enticed torepparttar "easy" money and vast riches thatrepparttar 133604 Internet offers. He can see that people are making big money onrepparttar 133605 web, so what'srepparttar 133606 obvious step - that's right, get a website!

And what isrepparttar 133607 theme of Mr Newbies website? How to make money onrepparttar 133608 Internet, of course! So why does he choose to tell other people how to make money onrepparttar 133609 Internet BEFORE he has made even one dollar himself?

Well, he findsrepparttar 133610 biggest array of ready-made products to sell that he could ever wish for - ebooks, courses, affiliate programs etc.,etc. and lots (and lots) of well designed ads that tell him that to resell this product, or represent this program will bring him huge (and instant) rewards.

The smart choice would have been to have taken one of his hobbies, or an area of specialist knowledge that he may possess, and built a niche website around that theme. Promotion would have been easier and potential customers may have even come looking for HIM. He could even have started building a newsletter list before he had a website.

But hey, Mr Newbie has heard you can make cash in Internet marketing in 30 days! Why bother doing any work?

Instead he decides to enter one ofrepparttar 133611 most competitive arenas ofrepparttar 133612 modern business era - not just marketing onrepparttar 133613 Internet, but marketing products ABOUT Internet Marketing.

He is competing against huge amounts of savvy marketers who use every trick inrepparttar 133614 book (and some that aren't) to wring every last drop of spare money out of that other man - "Mr. Average Web Surfer With A Credit Card".

So what does our friend do?

He buys an ebook that tells him what to do, he can't go wrong with this one. Heck -repparttar 133615 "expert" who wrote it, is even going to let him sell it as his first product. (Mr Newbie new thatrepparttar 133616 platinum package was worth those few extra dollars!)

From here on, it is oftenrepparttar 133617 same story - a lovely website, a clever domain name, and lots of evenings atrepparttar 133618 computer inrepparttar 133619 spare bedroom staring atrepparttar 133620 screen whenrepparttar 133621 kids have gone to bed pondering one major aspect of Internet marketing that is quite vital torepparttar 133622 ongoing profitability and feasibility ofrepparttar 133623 whole project while twiddling his thumbs -
