What is Internet Marketing?
Internet Marketing encompasses so many subjects including Search Engine Optimization (SEO), advertising using pay per click, email marketing, affiliate marketing, blog posts, social media, traffic strategies plus much more.
You could decide to take one of these areas and become an expert in that subject. Alternatively, you could offer a package to small businesses that includes a number of these to improve their online presence. Social Media and writing are extremely important and so are looked at separately.
I have had some success with affiliate Marketing and know it works.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is when you promote a product and if someone clicks on the link you potentially will receive some form of compensation. Such affiliate programs include the Amazon program and Ebay program. If you check out this page https://www.farewellshackles.com/should-you-use-the-hot-keys-or-a-foot-pedal-for-audio-transcription/ you will see an affiliate link to a foot pedal that is available on Amazon. If somebody clicks on this link and then purchases an item on Amazon within a certain amount of time I should get a small commission.
With affiliate marketing you tend to need to have a website with good content. I am sure you have heard of the saying “content is king” and it is very true. You need to update your website frequently and have content that is useful for others.
Another important part of affiliate marketing is “your list”. Enticing your visitors to part with their email address is extremely important. It is often thought that a person must have at least 7 interactions with you before they can start to trust you.
