As you start to look at Internet Marketing as a way to make money online, you will discover that there are several different approaches you can take.  I have summarized these methods here and over the course of the next few posts, I will go into each one in more detail.

  • Selling Services
  • Selling your own product
  • Affiliate marketing
  • CPA marketing

The first two look much more like traditional business models, as they rely on some kind of personal involvement as you set them up. When people first come to internet marketing, they will often have this kind of approach in mind, from preconceptions about how business should be done.

The third, Affiliate marketing, could be seen as a traditional selling role, where you get a “cut” of any money made from selling a product and there is much more to be said about this particular subject in another post.

Finally, CPA, or “Cost per Action” is usually a pure information gathering approach – with some selling at times. In this form it is highly suited to an internet-based approach as the “actions” are usually easy to carry out.

As the blog develops, I will be throwing a few technical tips in now and again. Please forgive me if these break the flow of the other articles…maybe it is just the way my brain works!

If you don’t have the latest all-singing and dancing software to create videos for your blog, it might be tempting to hold off getting involved with the video explosion.

Well, like all things in the internet marketing world, you need to be encouraged to just get on with it. Somehow, a little bit of roughness round the edges makes videos seem more authentic, so don’t be put off by how simple this next tip seems.  Here’s a video of me showing you how to make a video. How “hall of mirrors” is that?!

The only thing I should add is that I have been told that leaning back makes me look staggeringly fat! So avoid that if you can. Oh, and wait for the recording to start before speaking 🙂
