So You Want To Make Money From Web Marketing?

By Dan Millington

You’re probably all fired up at the thought of becoming a Web Marketer and earning a good income from home. This idea has many appealing features – you can work at home in your old jeans and sneakers, you can develop a digital product and sell it multiple times, you can choose the hours you want to work without your boss watching the clock and if you want to go swimming in the middle of the day, that’s up to you. The thought of making more money than you do at the moment is also very exciting.

You can become a successful Web marketer and make a great income, but it’s not an easy get-rich-quick scheme like some may have you believe. You need to do a lot of learning and put in a lot of hard work to achieve success time after time.

There are three stages of Internet marketing that you will go through and they’ll be explained here so you understand what’s ahead for you in your big career change.

Stage 1: Information overload can hold you up

You start off by making the decision to become an Web marketer. For some, it’s an easy decision and for others it’s hard. Either way, you have to decide to go all the way with it – not just dabble. Sticking your toe in and running the other way the minute you notice the water is a little cold will not get you the results you really desire.

You are lured by sales pages and buy many products to help you learn Web marketing. They all guarantee success if you just read them carefully and follow the instructions. You’re excited because you can see the potential. So you carry on spending money on these products, keep experimenting with different business ideas, going from one to the next without giving any of them more than 20% of your time and effort.

Many marketers now have you on their lists and you spend many hours reading their emails and checking out their new offers. You think you might miss something if you stop reading. You have so much information coming in and you’re so busy trying to learn it all that you don’t really accomplish anything.

Stage 2: Take action in a focused way

You stay in the first stage until you discover what’s actually happening and you notice that you haven’t started making any real money. Lots of people throw in the towel before they get to this point. But you realize that it’s time to opt-out of the majority of the mailing lists you are subscribed to, choose a business model you like, make your learning more focused (and spend less time doing it), and start to take focused action.

You’re fully committed to the one path you’ve chosen and you “drill deep” and make some mistakes but have consistent success. This is when it starts getting fun, especially when you see consistent money coming into your PayPal account.

Stage 3: Fine tune and make it hands off

You’re now successful with the business model you have picked, so it’s time to automate as much as possible. You use an autoresponder to send your emails, your clients and subscribers have their content delivered automatically, and your systems are all set-up. You can do what you’re doing many times over because you have templates in place, you’ve drawn up action sheets, and you’ve developed lots of shortcuts.

You are also building a team to work with you. You have a graphic designer, website maker, and article /blog post/ ebook writers at your disposal. You’ve built relationships with other web marketers and have affiliates.

In no time you’ll be running your own coaching program teaching other web marketers the secrets of your success. You can still remember what it was like in stage 1.
