It’s quite possible to make a lot of money online, and your investment doesn’t have to be a lot, either. In fact, you can make a really decent living — even a lot of money — with an investment of less than $100.
There are lots of ways you can do Internet marketing, some of which cost money, like Google AdWords or other “pay per click” programs.
In fact, though, there are lots of ways to market online and you don’t have to spend a penny doing so, even though you’ll reach a lot of people looking for just what you’re selling. How do you do that?
Well, first of all, it’s true that using free Internet marketing methods will mean that everything you earn (or nearly so) can be a profit, with little to nothing going to business expenses. However, there are some caveats to using free marketing methods.
The first is that you’ll need to wait a bit for your results. One of the ways you can market your Internet business is by doing what’s called “article marketing.” Now, doing so is going to be a bit labor-intensive for you, and it’s going to take some time to get you customers, but be patient. It works.
The second is that, as alluded to above, you are going to have to put some elbow grease in in exchange for having the marketing be truly free. When you utilize free marketing methods, you’ll need to build content throughout the Internet that people will continually access; the more content or articles you put out there (with your website address and promo “blurb” included at the bottom), the more chances people have to actually see you, and click to go to your website. Again, this takes some time, but you’re going to begin to build a very large network of article sites and other places with your name and website URL on them, which means that traffic will be coming to you literally forever once you’ve got this network in place.
The third is that you’re going to have to learn. There’s a learning curve that comes with free online Internet marketing techniques, and you’re going to have to learn how and where to best place that content so that people see you and will come to your website. There are several good Internet marketing courses out there, so go ahead and take a look around for some of them. Some of those are free, too.
The bottom line?
Again, it’s true that you absolutely don’t need money to become successful at Internet marketing. In fact, you’ll need less than $100 to get started. You will need some elbow grease and some patience, since it will take both time and effort to become successful with free marketing methods. But it can be done, and once you’ve gotten there, you’ll know that you have truly earned your success.
What can you really make?
You won’t get a stunningly rich overnight, but if you put these efforts in consistently over a period of three months’ time, it’s very possible that you could be earning an extra $1500-$2500 a month at the end of that third month. And six to 12 months out? It’s quite possible that you could be entirely earning a living from what you’ve done with your business in regard to Internet marketing. It depends on you, the effort you’re willing to put in and the patience you have, and whether or not you have the dedication to truly build your business over the long-term.
A final note
And don’t be surprised if as you go, you come across more and more ways to make money that you hadn’t thought of before. That’s the nature of Internet marketing, after all; it’s really a Pandora’s box that opens up and up and up into new vistas you hadn’t even thought of. Now, who wouldn’t want to spend every day doing that for a living?
