In a nutshell… affiliate marketing (selling other people’s products online). If you already have a Web site or a blog, look for vendors that offer related but non competing products and see if they have an affiliate program. If you don’t have a website or a blog, then that’s okay too. To promote products as an affiliate: Place simple text or graphical ads in appropriate places on your site or other people’s sites Include links to purchase products you review or recommend in a blog, discussion forum or mailing list Create a dedicated sales page or Web site to promote a particular product 2. Which internet marketing method can help me earn cash fast?

Trying to come up with a solid internet marketing plan is probably the hardest thing about making money on-line. There are a lot of thing you need to consider, such as building a website. Although the website is just one part of your overall business plan, you still have to think about what the market is doing, how you can fit into the market, who and where are your potential buyers, how you are going to attract visitors and literally dozens of other considerations. 5. How long does it take to earn extra money with internet marketing? Aside from the personal education and development required to become a successful marketer, is the knowledge of the various systems and strategies involved. If you are brand new or considering entering the market, much will depend upon your total online marketing strategy, access to training and tools, your experience, attitude and work ethic. 6. What are some of the FREE methods of internet marketing? • Write & publish money generating articles for FREE • Use your web cam & the power of video marketing • Social networking tactics with sites like Twitter & Facebook • Use blogs & forums marketing • Free e-zines • Publishing lenses on a web site called Squidoo • Free & simple to implement blogs • Free press releases 7. What are some of the PAID methods of internet marketing? • Pay-per-click advertising • Banner advertising • Buying bulk classifieds in hundreds of newspapers around the country • Magazine display ads in highly targeted magazines • Advertise in national newspapers like USA Today, the LA Times, etc. • Advertising on select job and career sites 8.

  • 3. Rainman Marketing Free traffic will deliver the best ROI (return on your investment) because you will have no out of pocket cost. The problem you find is that in most cases the traffic you bring to your website may not be as targeted as a keyword targeted PPC campaign. My suggestion for you is to use a paid and free traffic marketing strategy that combines both methods. 9. Any tips for internet marketing coaching programs? A home business that has an easily duplicated marketing system, allowing anyone to basically “plug in and go” is highly desirable. Add in training, support, mentoring and coaching, and you have the optimal situation. 10. Do I have to learn every marketing strategy in order to start making money? If you can do two things, you can earn more money online than you ever dreamed possible. Now, having said that, let me tell you that these two strategies will help to learn how to… • Write killer headlines that lock in eyeballs on your ads • Become a top-selling affiliate in any program you choose • Publish a highly profitable newsletter that builds relationships • Market your business online in the most effective way possible • Create your own insanely popular products to sell on the Internet • Create sales letters that produce staggering conversion rates • Generate website traffic just like the pros do • Launch your own affiliate program 11. How do I write sales copy to increase clicks-through and conversions? The basic principle of copywriting is to attract the attention of potential customers by displaying captivating titles or headlines about the product or services offered. The next step is to write a clear and meaningful introduction that stokes the imagination of the visitor. (It is important to highlight the features with bullet points). In the end it is important to assure the visitors about the product or service by providing third party validation. This is the most important part of copywriting as it instills trust in the product. 12. How do I create a landing pages that earn the most amount of money? There are basically 5 qualities of a killer landing page… • The headline and copy correspond to the ad that triggered the page. • The focus is on getting visitors to take one specific action. © 2014 - All Rights Reserved. www.rainmanmarketing.com Page 3
  • 4. Rainman Marketing • There are no distracting navigational links. • The copy is short. • There is a prominent subscription form or checkout option. 13. How do I target the ‘internet marketing’ audience accurately? Your first job when researching a target market is to identify who your audience is. A precision driven marketing approach (where you have a high-quality list of leads) will prove far more productive and profitable than a blanket approach to generate sales. Quality of leads, based on careful profiling of your customers and their needs, will massively increase your ability to convert them into sales. 14. When it comes to coaching, who can I trust online to teach me? It never ceases to amaze me the number of ‘online marketing experts’ who advocate that all you need to do to make money online is find a high ticket product to sell, drive traffic to a website with a hard hitting sales page, and then watch the money roll in. Don’t trust anyone until they have proven themselves not to be a “sneaky little brown-noser with a hidden agenda”. 15. How long will it take to start earning income online? If I had to start all over again, one of the first things I would do is find an online internet marketing mentor. Getting a mentor can mean the difference between reaching your goals in 6 weeks or 6 months. Naturally, you have to put in the effort and actually do the work required of you. But if you can do that, and honestly work the program, you will find that it can be the most rewarding experience of your life. 16. How do I use keyword research to target a market & start building a list? To conduct market research, I usually start by utilizing Google’s Keyword Tool. This resource allows you to enter a broad keyword into the search box to generate a list of more specific keyword phrases related to the broad term. This tool reveals how many people searched for each keyword phrase in the previous month. Additionally, you can also use Googles keyword tool to see how much competition there is in your market. 17.

How do I find a simple, clear recipe for distributing videos? You can share your YouTube videos by email address or with friends you have attached to your account.

This can mean good opportunities for you. • Reach out to the influencers in your niche, be polite, honest, and sincere. • Create a “how to” video and submit to YouTube. It has wide reach, and you could have millions of people see it. 20. How do I use viral marketing?
