Is learning about internet marketing something you desire?
I have received a lot of emails from people with a goal of learning about internet marketing, so I decided that the best way to deal with these numerous enquiries is to write a blog post based on my little experience and then allow others who are more experienced make their contributions as well.
Confession: I am not an internet marketing guru – far from it, I am just a regular guy who knows how to make good use of the internet by creating a brand online and then making a few thousand bucks (USD) on a regular basis.
I will point out the strategies that helped me when I first started learning about internet marketing, you can also try them out if you are interested in learning about internet marketing.
Here are the strategies;
1. Research – this is key in the process of learning about internet marketing.
There are various types of research you would have to carry out namely;
Internet marketing research
Social Media Research
Niche Research (Area of focus)
Strategy implementation research
Please disregard the bogus terms used above, researching is much easier today. All you need to get started is an internet connection and a laptop (or your preferred device)…
Launch a browser, go to www.google.com
Search the phrase Internet Marketing – check the 1st 50 or 100 results and you could also type in “internet marketing” for another variation of the results.
Do this for as many phrases related to the subject matter and then study the pages you find interesting.
- With time, you will get understand what is means to do all the research stated above.
2. Join Internet Marketing Forums
Two of my favourites are;
Money Maker Discussion Forum
These forums discuss a lot about internet marketing, so you can learn so much.
3. Follow Internet marketing Blogs
I recommend Hubspot blog. A day never goes by without me reading an article or two written by more experienced internet marketers, with the aim of learning one or two strategies that I can immediately implement.
4. Use Google properties
Google is indeed a trendsetter when it comes to learning about internet marketing. There are so many Google owned properties that can help you tremendously. I recommend the following in addition to others you may find useful;
5. Read books and other forms of published materials on Internet Marketing
I love to read. Particularly, I read small and try to ACT big because I have come to the realisation that it is action that counts and not the amount of books in our library. So, if you pick up any book on learning about internet marketing, endeavour to implement what you learn. I can help you with a couple of eBooks go get you started, please leave a comment if would like one. As a matter of fact I have a 1,000+ strong eBook library that can change a generation and I am always proud to say it.
I have covered only five strategies here, please bear in mind that there are countless others i.e. Social Media, Wikis. Trust me, learning about internet marketing is not so complicated as long as you set your heart to it. Sooner than you expect, you will become good at it and then move on to help others become better (which happens to be my purpose in life) -:) (:-
