The Facts You Should Know
About Internet Marketing

By: Raamakant S.

I woke up this morning and saw my lovely wife. She was sleeping and looking like an angel. I thought, "Probably I am the luckiest guy in the world. I have a gorgeous wife, and a cute doll (my daughter). I have money and time to enjoy life, and I don't need to worry about my future." Suddenly, I remembered those days when I first started Internet marketing.

I can't forget those worst days when I used to work 16 hours a day. I'd come home from my JOB (Just Over Broke) and start working on my computer till 4:00 o'clock in the morning. I had dark circles under my eyes. I had no time for friends, family, or even for my loved ones. I tried everything I read, and almost exhausted my credit card, but I couldn't make money.

It happens with almost every newbie.

So the question here is:
"What is the Secret of Success in Internet Marketing?"

The answer is:
your own OPT-IN LIST and Targeted Visitors coming to your website.

The OPT-IN LIST:

You've probably heard about “The List” many times. This is the important fact: there is nothing more valuable in your online business than your email list.

EVERYTHING you do online should grow your list, even if it's one person at a time.

Think about it... if you've got a list, you can send valuable content, and then create lots of product offers as time goes on. But if you DON'T have a list... it doesn't matter how many offers you create, because NOBODY will see them.

A Proven Fact:
A very crucial element of online marketing is a proven fact that people are likely to do business with those they trust. The best online way of building trust with a prospect is through email marketing. Give your prospect something valuable and gain their trust.

5 Ways to Boost Your Website Traffic for Free.

01. JV Partnership:

You've probably heard about Joint Ventures before. They are one of my biggest sources of traffic. Initially, it's hard to find JV Partners - especially big names - because nobody knows you. So start with smaller marketers. Don't forget to keep a list of everybody you have had a successful JV with. They know you, and they will like to work with you in the future.

02. Write Articles and submit to article directories:

Writing articles and submitting them to article directories is another great method to attract tons of visitors. It takes little time and builds your credibility all over the web. It improves your sites search engine ranking because of the links back to your site.

03. Online Forums:

Forums are the best place to drive targeted visitors to your website. You can also increase your marketing knowledge, make joint ventures, and get quick help by joining some marketing forums. If you're serious about building your online business, it's must. Be sure to check out the rules of forum before doing any posting!

04. Viral Tools:

Viral e-books and reports can drive massive traffic that you can't imagine. Why? Because it's VIRAL! Your reader can customize the ebook with their affiliate links and give away ebooks for free. That's why it spreads like a virus all over the net and sends traffic to YOUR site.

05. Link Exchanges:

A link exchange is permanent source of traffic. In fact, it gives you double benefits. You get the traffic from your link on other peoples' sites, and at the same time it pushes up the ranking of your site on search engines.

Using Pay per Click Search engines are also a good way to get instant and targeted visitors, but it's not free. You need to do a lot of homework and make a huge list of relevant keywords before starting, or you may get burned.

Some Hype you should AVOID:

A. "Guaranteed 10,000 Visitors for $xx!"

You have seen it everywhere on the Net. When you buy a package, you will come to know that you haven't made a single sale by the time the package runs out. The reason behind it is that they show your site in a small pop-up window on other sites, and pop-ups are not very effective. The other reason is that your site is shown in front of UNtargeted people who are not really interested in your product.

B. "Blast your ad to over 10 million sites!"

There was a time when this really worked, but it's no longer true. There are so many automatic ad submitters these days, and there's very little chance anyone will ever see your ads.

C. "Send your ad to 10 million email address!"

This type of marketing is now considered SPAM! And if you are reported for SPAM, you can lose your ISP, website, e-mail account, and much more!

D. "Guaranteed Search Engine Ranking!"

Top placement on search engines is a hard task, and requires lots of money and time. There are millions of websites across the Internet, and everyone wants a top search engine ranking. If you are not in the Top 20 for your keyword phrase, you'll not be getting many visitors.

E. "Just Push one Button and Get 1000 Visitors a Day!" types of Software.

The Internet is filled with this hype: "Targeted traffic at the push of a button." They show your site at autosurf traffic exchange programs where everybody uses this type of software to gain credits, and nobody actually sees your site.
