How the Internet Got Started
Information on how the Internet was formed and how extensive it is is easily found on the Internet. A good history is http://www.davesite.com/webstation/net-history1.shtml There you will find Al Gore did not invent the Internet. It was developed by the U.S. Government for defense purposes. Then it exploded to the point that almost every human being in the world has access. Olga Helsinki in Turkmenistan has not yet embraced the Internet.
Internet Marketing or Making Money on the Internet
Those of you looking for an online Internet Tutorial for Beginners that shows you how to make money on the Internet probably know how frustrating that can be. The gurus write and distribute these courses by the hundreds but they often don't tell you what you need to know to earn money. Most folks who start trying to earn money online through an online Internet marketing course fail.
They fail partly because they have the idea that you can become rich on the Internet in a very short time. Well, that does happen at times. From my experience it comes to young, hard-working people who have no preconceived notions on how Internet marketing should work. They are smart, burn the midnight oil, and continually learn as they go. They stick with one thing until they master it and then they move on.
Following is a short Internet Tutorial for Beginners on how to make money on the Internet. I hope is is what you are looking for:
There are four (4) major ways major ways to make money on the Internet. They are:
SEO or Search Engine Optimization of a website. This site should be a general one at first, perhaps YOURNAMEEnterprises.com which you can register at GoDaddy or many other sites that handle domain names. Once your website is designed by yourself using templates available on the Internet or from scratch with CoffeeCup or some other such HTML editor that is easy to use, you can submit it to search engines. A Meta file for each web page will include a title based on keywords, a description, and a listing of keywords on the page. Each page should be submitted. You might have a web page called yournameenterprises.com/growingcarrots where you teach folks how to grow carrots, not where to buy them or how good they are for your health but "how to grow carrots." The page or article should include "how to grow carrots" in the title, the first paragraph and the last paragraph with the keyword phrase sprinkled in modestly in the text. At the bottom of the page you might have a link to your blog, an article you wrote, or to an affiliate site where people can learn more on growing carrots.
Email Marketing means you collect names of visitors to your site using a service like AWeber.com or GetResponse.com. To get a person to leave is name, you must bribe them. This can be an ebook or a short course sent automatically by your auto responders at your listing service. Most money on the Internet is probably made by selling to your friends and associates by email.
Article Marketing is free but used not only by beginners but by professional marketers. Your write articles for Ezinearticles.com, Squidoo.com, GoArticles.com, etc. The more the better. Writing a few articles will not do much for you. You need tons of articles. Use keywords as described above under SEO. Do not try to sell in an article. Your article will probably be rejected. Give information based on the keywords. It is best to put your own web page in the Resource Box where you can leave your URL: yournameenterprises.com/keyword. Some sites will let you link directly to a vendor site, many will not. You can find products to sell at ClickBank.com or CJ.com or other sites. You can find products that can be drop shipped too. In summary, give good information in your article, good information on your web page, and let the vendor do the selling. You are in the pre-sell business, not the selling business. Find keywords at the Google adwords keyword tool external. When you find a keyword that has a good number of searches check to see how many competitive sites the keyword brings up.To do this put your keyword or keyword phrase in quotation marks: e.g. "keyword" or "keyword phrase." For writing articles you want fewer than 5000 competitive sites.
PPC or Pay-Per-Click is one of the best ways to earn money and LOSE money on the Internet. However, most if not all successful marketers use it. To use PPC go to Google, MSN, and Yahoo and sign up in their PPC programs. Read all the information provided and use their customer service functions. You must get educated before you start and empty your bank account. The process is to select keywords (they have keyword tools) and TEST several ads based on each keyword. If your ad brings up more cash then what you are spending for product and PPC cost, you are in the black and can proceed, dumping bad ads for better ones but continually trying to write a better ad.WordTracker.com has a good many tutorials on this product that will cost you nothing at all. They will also let you use their keyword tool too on a temporary basis.
