Why internet marketing? Why not? There has never been a time when it has been so easy for the average person to start a business. With an internet marketing business you do not need much money, you can learn all the skills you need and you can make a virtually unlimited income. Instead of asking why internet marketing, you should be asking, what am I waiting for?
Now, here is the catch you may have expected, many people will ask why more people are not successful at internet marketing if it is so easy, and the answer to that is that it is not that easy. I know, it sounds like I am contradicting myself, but I am really not. You see starting a business online is cheaper, easier and quicker than it would be if you tried to open a business off line.
There are so many free or low cost resources you can use online. Every form of business online is less expensive than it would be offline. But, that does not mean it won’t take some time, work, or money, it just won’t take as much.
Most people fall for the hype of some magical push button, do it all for you software or system. FYI, there is no such thing. There are many ways you can automate or outsource aspects of your business but there is no magic Genie that will do it all for you.
You have to be willing to invest time to learn some basic skills before you can expect to make any money. Then you have to be willing to invest some time to put those skills to work on a consistant basis. Don’t forget, you are building a business here. Rome wasn’t the only thing that wasn’t built in a day.
Once you have some money coming in you should reinvest that money into your business so you can scale your business up. Your first few months you will either not make anything at all or will only make a few hundred dollars. In most cases, it won’t be what you might call life altering money.
But, if you put that money back into your business, either to hire people to do some of the work for you so more can get done in the same amount of time, or to invest in some software or services to do some aspects of your business, you will really start to see some big results in the next couple of months.
Realistically, you may be able to achieve enough income in about 3 – 6 months, on average, to replace your full time income. From that point on it simply becomes a “rinse and repeat” type of process. Just keep doing this until you are making all the money you want to be making and until you are working only the amount of time you want to work.
Not only can you conceivably build your business as big as you want, you can also build it in such a way that you don’t even have to spend many hours working on it every week. Passive income online is very, very realistic but only if you are willing to work on it in the beginning until your business is actually generating some income and you can automate and/or outsource some aspects of it.
So, if you are still wondering “Why internet marketing” you should really be asking how soon can I start?
