When I purchased my first computer over 10
years ago, I knew I wanted to put it to work and make money with it
some how. But I knew nothing about computers or the Internet. I knew
nothing about network marketing, search engine marketing, or even
how to create my own web site. I knew nothing about e-mail marketing
e-mail leads or how to set up an e-mail list.
I began searching the Internet for ideas. I quickly learned that
you could join several affiliate programs and they would supply you
with a free affiliate web page. Unfortunately getting good quality
traffic to these affiliate web pages was somewhat of a challenge.
And the Major search engines wouldn’t even list my new affiliate web
pages. So once again I was left searching the Internet for ideas.
I kept reading over and over again to get your own domain name
and create your own web site. Then incorporate all your affiliate
links into your new web site. Create a theme and join affiliate
programs related to that theme. But I knew nothing about creating a
web site. And what the heck is HTML?
I began creating web pages on Microsoft publisher. These were
very simple pages and now when I look back at them I have to laugh.
They were anything but professional and publisher actually made many
errors in the HTML code. But this was all just part of the learning
curve. You have to learn to walk before you run.
Eventually I started writing my own HTML using Microsoft word and
saving it as a simple HTML text file. To this day all my web page’s
are created using word.
Since starting my online business I have probably joined 100s of
affiliate program opportunities, re-modeled my web page over 50
times and spend more than 4 hours a day reading and learning how to
further promote my sites to make more money. All this was done on my
own with little to no training from others.
When I started I knew nothing and now my business is getting
between 5-10 commission checks in the mail every month generated
from sales or leads coming from my 6 web sites.
I get people that say to me all the time. I cannot do that on my
own. Well if I can do it you can too. It just takes a little
patients and the will to learn. If you want to make money online you
need to act. You need to search for information and read all about
how to create your own web site. Then you need to search for
information on how to promote, advertise, and most of all how to get
good search engine rankings.
