The Questions most people ask me:
Asking questions is normal and I don’t mind helping other people out. I have put together a list of the top questions I get with my answers…it can be hard on the typing fingers writing the same thing over and over! Your main questions are likely answered below..but if you have any further questions, you can contact me here.
Question: What is Internet Marketing?
Answer: Internet marketing is the process of selling a product online and earning a commission when doing so. In the most raw form, Internet marketing involves using the Internet to deliver a product to an audience looking for something. In most cases, people perform a search in a Search Engine like Google.com. An Internet marketer can then deliver content in the search results to these people and help them find what they are looking for. If a purchase is made through a link that you own, a commission is earned. The free getting started course offered on this website will teach you exactly how to get started for free!
Question: Can anyone make money on the Internet?
Answer: Yes, yes, YES! Can you tell I am excited. The reason for this is that I know you have what it takes to succeed online. You don’t have to be technical, you don’t need a marketing degree, and you don’t have to be all that smart (you are likely smarter than some of the most successful marketers online). Think about this…
If you spent as much time as you did in your day job working on your Internet business, you would be wildly successful! If you are willing to work hard and set a few goals for yourself, you will be surprised as to what you can achieve online.
Question: I don’t have any product to sell. Is that OK?
Answer: I don’t own any products either. Instead I work as an affiliate marketer.
As an “affiliate marketer” you promote other people’s products and services in exchange for commission. When you earn a sale for the company, you earn money. These companies give you special “affiliate links” that track your visitors and automatically give you a commission if your visitor buys something.
There are affiliate networks like Clickbank out there that pay up to 75% on most of their products, so if you sell something for $40, you get a $30 cut. Not bad?
There are 10,000’s of affiliate programs out there in every imaginable industry. There are even affiliate programs for selling rocks!
Affiliate commissions add up very quickly when you understand that you only need to get 4-5 customers out of a billion people online each day to buy something through your link. If an average sale is around $35, you can see that without a ton of work you will be making $175 extra/day..30 days per month.
The reason I recommend training services like Wealthy Affiliate is that they give you access to all these affiliate programs and train you exactly how to promote them. Having the right training will truly JUMP START your path to success. They teach you marketing techniques and how to access well over 100,000 programs online. You can essentially promote anything you want as an affiliate. I promote Classical Guitars and music, as well as Internet Marketing because I love Classical Guitar music and Internet Marketing and am really interested in it. You can do the same with whatever you are interested it.
Q: Can you guarantee that I will be successful? If not, what can I do to improve my chances?
A: No, I cannot guarantee anything. It is like me saying, can I guarantee you will work hard at something. Unfortunately I can’t, but what I can tell you is that if you work at this and treat it like a business, you will become successful. People do fail all the time within the business world and it is those who continue pushing forward after failure that become successful.
The Internet has opened doors for everyone. You have the same opportunity as me, and we all have the same opportunity as larger companies out there. Everyone is on an even playing field and there has never been a better time to start. Average people like you and I can make $10,000’s every month without even having a product that we own!
Question: I need help setting up a website, can you help?
Answer: Setting up your own website gives you a piece of the Internet and a platform to extend your reach as an Internet marketer. You DO NOT need a website as you can use Squidoo or Blogger initially. With that said, you may want to take your Internet game to the next level and obtain your own website. You have two options that I suggest.
1 – Join WealthyAffiliate.com and get Hosting included for FREE (2 free sites with the Free membership and unlimited with Premium membership.
2 – Sign-up to HostGator.com and have them host your site.
Q: Clickbank does not accept people from my country…are there any alternatives?
A: That is fine. There are some countries that Clickbank does not allow and they have their own reasons for this. But there is good news…there are 1,000’s of other affiliate programs that you can promote that WILL accept your country. Here are some of the top affiliate networks online. Try these!
You can also do a targeted search in Google for affiliate programs. Type in “industry + affiliate program”. Replace industry with the type of programs you are looking for…for example, this could be “dieting + affiliate programs”. You will get lots of results this way as well.
Question: Who am I, and why should you listen to a word I say?
Answer: I have people asking me everyday about myself. I created a whole page all about myself here!
I am similar to you, I have no fancy Internet marketing degree. I was able to become an Internet marketer due to hard work and focusing on learning from others more experienced than me. Wealthy Affiliate Free membership is really a great way to get started is to just take the Boot Camp and make sure you follow the instructions!
