If you are thinking about starting a business, and don’t want to risk too much money, then there is probably no better choice than Internet Marketing.

When I say Internet Marketing, I’m referring to the process of promoting other peoples products on the internet to make money on the commissions for sales.

Here are some reasons for Getting Started In Internet Marketing:

  1. Low Startup Costs – All you need is a computer, an internet connection, and some web hosting space.
  2. Time – You can work when it suits you. You can fit it into evenings and weekends so that it does not interfere with your job.
  3. It’s Easy – With all the online resources available, you won’t have too much trouble getting to grips with what you need to do to get started.
  4. Scalability – As you progress you will find more incomes streams become available. It is easy to scale up your business to accommodate these extra opportunities.

First, let’s take a look at the low startup costs. Low can pretty much mean free in the internet marketing business. To test the water you could set up a blog at Blogspot (or similar) and get a feel for things there.

Then, you can buy some web hosting and a domain name and suddenly everything starts looking professional for less than $100 for the first year.

Now let’s take a look at the time that it takes to get started in internet marketing. Basically, you can spend as much time as you like. It fit’s in perfectly as a part-time job and as you start making more money it can replace your part-time job. If everything goes well, you can take as much time off as you like because your website never sleeps and will continue to make money around the clock.

But how easy is it to get started in internet marketing? Answer: Very easy. It is as easy as buying some domain hosting, getting an open source CMS installed on your website and generating content and implementing some basic marketing skills to start driving visitors.

And scalability? Well as you start earning money from a couple of sources, you will learn many other ways that you can increase your revenues. The beauty is that once one revenue stream starts ticking over, you can then start on another.. and another.. and another.

So there is a pretty simple explanation of how to get started in internet marketing.

Now that I’ve scratched the surface, I think I will have to write some more detailed articles.
