How To Start In The World Of On-line Marketing

If you're starting out in the world of Marketing on the internet, it can be a very challenging experience as there are literally hundreds of 1000s of various programs as well as products you can choose from. You sometimes find yourself shelling out a lot of money trying out all the numerous get rich quick strategies.

Quite often, once you have invested in program, you find that you quickly get information overload or maybe that the program doesn't really deliver on its claims.

So, what exactly should you look for when selecting a website marketing program and what things should you avoid?

A few of the things to watch out for are:

1. Unrealistic statements about how much money you can make earn. Many courses claim you can actually earn thousands of dollars with a few minutes work. That old adage saying if “something seems to good to be true, then it probably is”, definitely applies in this case. Whilst there can be the occasional product where you get lucky and possibly generate some dollars immediately, a lot of those systems will usually count on passing trends and are not sustainable in the long run.

2. Numerous upsells. There are thousands of marketing solutions out there that claim to be entire systems, however when you purchase them, you're offered “once in a life time offers” for some alternative solution. This is called an upsell and is a very common technique for a lot of the more ambitious marketers. You need to ask yourself, if the original product is so great, why do you require each one of these extra solutions?

3. Any support? The thing you don't want when you have paid your hard earned dollars is to be left in the lurch with no support. It doesn't matter how good a product is, you want to make certain it has some type of guarantee of support if you ever encounter any problems or have any kind of queries.

4. Good reputation. Generally a simple Google lookup can be extremely revealing in relation to whether the certain course and the person providing the program is actually trustworthy. However, as always 'Caveat Emptor' applies, so check a well known forum where you are able to trust the replies of the people posting there.

What points should you look out for?

1. A person that's been around for some time and has built up a great reputation.

2. Previous products? Normally, this is the best pointer as to just how much you can trust the person and/or system they're selling. If they have delivered a very good product in the past that clients ended up being really happy with, then there's a decent chance that their other products are going to be every bit as good.

So, when you are starting out and about to commit hard earned cash, use a mixture of due dilligence and evaluation.

That coupled with the help of a great mentor, will help make your online business a great success.

    Hi Joe,

    A much needed post, warning of the dangers of spending your hard earned on “scammy” type products.

    I’ve fallen victim myself once or twice so it’s sound advice that should be followed.

    Don’t be blinded by the claims of easy money!

    Take care,
