Does It Take Money To Make Money?
Have you ever heard someone say, it takes money to make money? Many people believe it does and admittedly, it does seem like it’s true.
With regards to Internet Marketing or being an Entrepreneur, does it take money to make money? The short answer is, “No.
You can effectively launch an Internet Marketing career without a single dime. All you need is a computer and an Internet connection, which does cost money, but assuming you have those two components already, you’re can be in business.
Many people new to online marketing have gotten their start as an affiliate marketer.
Aside from shuffling around in your attic to find something you can sell for a profit on eBay, affiliate marketing is your best bet for a zero-dollar start-up business in the Internet marketing industry. All you need is your own unique affiliate ID, which you can usually get for free.
You can go to sites like PayDotCom, Amazon, Commission Junction, LinkShare, or very popular, ClickBank (to name a few).
And with a little research you can learn how to get free traffic to your affiliate sites and you can begin generating an affiliate income without investing a penny of your own money.
With that being said, it’s best though if you save a few dollars here and there to invest in some tools that are going to make your Internet marketing efforts a wholelot easier. For example, you could sit around brainstorming for days trying to come up with a list of keywords – or, you could pay for a one-day subscription to WordTracker , make a purchase of Market Samuria, and harvest thousands of keywords in less than an hour.
Also, you could nothing but the free web 2.0 social sites that are free such as Face Book, MySpace or Squidoo, to host your content and affiliate links. Or, you could fork up a $9.95 one-time fee to get a domain name and $7.95 a month for hosting and have your own business presence on the World Wide Web.
You can also spend months searching for free information about how to do a task that will help you make money as an Internet marketer – such as how to master pay per click advertising.
Or, you can simply invest in a step-by-step guide to help shorten your learning curve all together.
Most successful marketers suggest you take a look at your current budget and see what you have to invest. If you have to start out with nothing, don’t let that hold you back, go for it, just began to set aside some money from any profits you make to re-invest back into your online efforts.
Everything you’ll invest in is built to ease your workload and hasten the process of buiding and running your online business, so your income will increase faster and with less input from you as you learn to wield these tools in your favor.
Eventually, as you become more successful in your online business, you can then outsource many of the mundane things in your business.
Be aware, nothing is really “FREE”, especially with regards to IM. Yes you can use free methods to get traffic, but the real truth is, in oder to build a successful IM business you will either have to invest money or you will have to invest your time, proabaly a little more of both.
I’d really encourage anyone seriously thinking about satrting a IM busines, to try, if at all possible, to invest in some form of training about Internet Marketing, it can only help speed up you journey towards success.
So, as Nike say’s, just it. No better time to start than today.
