Internet Marketing – Don’t carry all your eggs in one basket!

Sound advice and words of wisdom that will hold you in good stead throughout life and with your online marketing career.

If you are link building from one source and that source is cut off, you have no links. No links means no rankings and no traffic. Besides which it looks unnatural to the search engine, so links need to be built from multiple places and from far and wide.

And the saying holds true for revenue streams too. If you only have one revenue stream running and the river turns into a trickle or dries up over night, you wake up and suddenly you have no income coming in. That’s a nightmare position to be in and one that should be avoided at all costs.

Internet Marketing - Pink Eggs in ThailandBut let’s not walk before we can run. I’m going to assume you don’t know how to build links to your website, I’m even going to assume you don’t have a website. So in future posts we will look at buying a domain name, website hosting, and building a website or blog and the different ways to monetize it.

I will also share with you the many different tools (some free and some I’ve invested in) I use on a day to day basis to make working online a whole lot easier and also save a lot of time. At the end of the day, that’s one of the main attractions for a lot of people. Working from home and spending more time with their family. I won’t sugar coat it but that was never the way it was for me for a long time and it probably won’t be for you either. Learning new skills, researching business opportunities and implementing strategies takes time, but I will definitely help you speed up the process.

Just finding the right people online to study and learn from was a full job in itself at first. There are a lot of charlatans who promise the earth and deliver squat. I subscribed to a lot of them at first but now I don’t subscribe to any and life is a lot saner without their constant bombardment of emails and sales pitches, what I call ‘white noise’. I’ll introduce you to the people you should be following and we’ll not even mention the others.

We’ll also look at the 3 tried and tested ways for making money online.

Making Money Online – Easy as 1-2-3

Affiliate Marketing (selling a product or service as a third party)

Local Search Marketing (Online marketing for an offline company)

Product Creation (Making an online product – ebook, course or digital product and selling it online)

You can make a full time income from any one of these three strategies and subcategories within each. You’ll learn all the skills you will need to build your own online business and live the lifestyle you want to live.

In the next post we will start with Keyword Research, assessing your market place for business opportunities, reverse engineering successful websites and online businesses and a whole lot more…
