If you are struggling with the complexities of Internet marketing, you are not alone. When I first set out to make an income on the Internet I found it very confusing. There were too many things you had to do: find out how to make money; find out the best way for me – something I could do; find out what I needed to know and what skills I had to learn. I did not know anything about HTML or about building a website and when I tried learning about it I did not seem to have an aptitude for it. It was pretty overwhelming. You may have had a similar experience.
I liked the idea of affiliate marketing where you sold someone else’s product for a commission. But how would I promote that? The most successful marketers had their own websites and they recommended that was the best way to go. When I looked into this it was like trying to learn a foreign language. The whole concept was totally foreign to me. I thought I could never learn how to do that and, even if I could, it was going to take me a long time. I wanted to get going faster than that.
I looked for an easier way and found you could sell products by writing articles and sending people to the landing pages. But then I found most article directories wouldn’t let you do this. They would only let you direct readers to your own domain. So I had to learn how to get a domain name and redirect it to the product’s landing page. And so my Internet education began. My experience was similar to many others. That’s why so many people give up on the idea of making money online, as it all gets too hard.
That’s also why so many Internet marketing platforms have appeared to fill this need. The idea is the platform will provide the tools for you to run your business under the one umbrella. I am talking about the whole Internet marketing process – having a website, having a good product to sell, having opt-ins, auto-responders and list building tools. These are all things you need if you want to become an Internet marketer. The trouble is, you usually have to go to different providers for them.
