Welcome to Marketing Online-how you can start making money from home.
EXACTLY, WHAT IS ONLINE MARKETING?
Now there’s a good question…
Let’s just break it down. Online…Marketing.
Online: Doing all the work through the internet, email, and websites.
Marketing: Advertising, or promoting a product to be sold.
Ok…so if you are working through the internet or websites promoting a product you are “online marketing”. This is all well and good but if you are going to do this, will you do it for nothing, or do you want to be paid for your online marketing?
Stupid question, of course you want to be paid for the work you do. So that is where this site comes in. Here you can learn how to get involved in online marketing in a way that you will be paid for your work and if you work hard, you can be paid generously.
So just how is it you can be paid?
Well, it is going to depend on what type of marketing you want to do. What I mean by that is, you can market your own product online or you can market someone else’s product as an affiliate. Market your own product and you get all the money from the sale, market a product for someone else and you will earn a percentage of the sale.
Marketing your own product is more lucrative, but there are more details that need to be taken care of. You will need to have your own website, a payment processor and probably a shopping cart.
Marketing another person’s product is commonly called “affiliate marketing” and for this you don’t need anything to get started except an account with some of the major affiliate networks available online. Affiliate networks such as Click Bank, Commission Junction, and Pay Dot Com, provide you with thousands of products, major retailers, and online vendors. If you sign up with these guys they will handle the sale and payment, and provide statistic data for you to track your ads, sales, and traffic of all your promotions. Your percentage will be paid to you in the form of a check mailed to you or online payment, in some cases you can even have a direct deposit to your account.
So to start at the starting line of making money from home with online marketing, you will need to decide if you are going to market a product you already have, or market a product as an affiliate.

One thing that is a Must Have is an Autoresponder, this is a program that handles all of your email to your clients. You can use it as a newsletter on a regular basis, or automatically send an email at a specific day and time.
