In the 4 years that I have been marketing online, I have learned a lot. Technology is constantly changing and new methods of promotion and creating products are always coming out. And yet, when I think about all the changes and all the additions, it still comes down to 3 things that you MUST have to succeed in Internet marketing. I will cover those 3 things in this article, and hopefully after doing so, you will have a clear picture of what you need to do.
The first thing you need is knowledge. I'm not talking about knowledge of just one thing. You need a complete well rounded education on EVERY facet of Internet marketing. That includes advertising methods, technology; such as autoresponders, web design etc. , writing instruction, the different kinds of programs available to the marketer and the list goes on and on. There is so much knowledge to be had in regard to marketing online that it can be overwhelming to say the least. But lack of knowledge in even just ONE area can lead to TOTAL disaster. That is why 95% of the people who try to market online end up broke. So knowledge is key.
It doesn't end with knowledge. You also need content, lots of it. If you think I am kidding, take a look at the search engines whenever you look up any topic at all. What do you find at almost every website? You find content. Content is what makes the entire Internet go. Without it, we'd all be out of business. Well, content is not easy to get. It's either very expensive, if you're going to buy it, or it's very hard to create yourself if you're not exactly a crack writer. Content is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for Internet marketers. They just don't know how to come up with enough of it, which is another reason they fail.
The third thing you need is MANY products to sell. Another misconception among marketers is that they can just join one program or promote one product and make a living with that program or product. This is another myth that needs to be killed and quickly. You can NEVER make a decent income with one product or program. Programs collapse and products become outdated. That is why you need multiple products to make a substantial living on the Internet.
