F. A. Q.

1. What is Internet Marketing?

  • Internet marketing is an online form of commission selling.  The Internet Marketer becomes a commissioned salesperson for various companies.
  • Through online websites or blogs the Marketer will provide links to the products that are being searched on the web.
  • The magic of this medium allows anyone to become a conduit that brings together an audience with the products they are looking for.
  • This is also called Affiliate Marketing.

2. Is this a Scam?

  • This business model is completely legitimate.  There are many charlatans out on the web.  Make sure that you do your research and choose a company that you can trust.
  • It takes time and effort to develop any business and this is no different.
  • It can make you money and is a good way to add additional income to your household.

3. Can I really make money at this?

  • This business model is not a get rich quick scheme.
  • It will take some time to develop your online presence and drive traffic to your web properties.  It is a way to make legitimate money.
  • With time and concerted effort you can make a living at this.
  • Starting up a business, however, is a risk that not everyone should undertake.
  • If you feel that you are up to the challenge, there is money to be made online.

4.  Will I need to stock products and ship them myself?

  • This business model does not require that you buy products and ship them to your customers.
  • The vendors take care of shipping products and will pay you a commission based on the sales that you drive to their sales sites.

5. How long will this take?

  • The amount of time involved in this endeavor varies.
  • Some people make money right from the start and some take a year or more to get their online presence established and make sales.
  • The average is around 6 months.  This is not a hard and fast rule.
  • Everything takes effort and action.  The more you put in the faster it happens.

6  How much writing is involved?

  • There is not a way to sugar coat this issue.  There is a significant amount of writing involved with this.
  • The good part of this is that your writing does not have to be formal, you are not creating a doctoral thesis here.  In fact, the more familiar and conversational your writing, the better it does.
  • Sitting down and writing a quick e-mail to a friend is the most effective sales copy that you can write.

7. What do I sell?

  • Pick something that you are already familiar with and there is a good chance that there are products available in this area (Niche) that you can sell.
  • The magic in this business is that there is a ready market on the internet for just about anything you can think of.  Need to clear up your acne? Yup, there’s a way to sell this.  Want to lose some weight, make a canoe, learn how to build a chicken coop?
  • There are products available for just about anything.  You choose your focus and start promoting your passion.

8. How do I get paid?

  • The vendors that you sign up with will keep track of your sales and pay you on your sales over the current interval.  The interval may be monthly, bi-weekly or weekly depending on the vendor.  Most vendors can remit a check or will pay by PayPal.
