The Many Shades Of Internet Marketing


There’s no PhD you can strive for to be in the Internet marketing industry. You have to learn as you go – on your own – soaking up information along the way.

The first thing you need to know is what it means to be an Internet marketer, because it isn’t always clear to everyone.

Let’s start with what Internet marketing is not.  It’s not being a con artist. It’s not being a spam king.  It doesn’t just mean selling on eBay or having your own website and products.

Don’t try this at home (or in the car!)

He records his video while driving in his open convertible.

How to Add an Opt-In Form for Your Blog


In my last post I mentioned how excited I was to have an opt-in form on my blog, and how easy it was. I also mentioned how to NOT go about creating an opt-in form.

Apparently, that’s not helpful enough for anyone looking to actually create one!

So here we go – How to add an opt-in form for your blog:

(1) Assuming you have an Aweber account (or similar autoresponder system), click on “Sign-up Form” then “Create a Sign Up Form.

(2)Start by choosing a template (basic is fine; don’t forget, you only need the two lines where your future subscribers will input their name and email address).

Regardless of the reason, everyone needs to earn money to survive and pay the bills, and you’re pretty sure that there is bound to be SOME way for you to earn money via the Internet.

I’d like to make one thing clear: it is DEFINITELY possible to make money online. Unfortunately, that is where the clarity ends. Because when you get to the next step of figuring out howyou are going to go about doing so, that’s where the confusion sets in.
