       So You Want to be an Internet Marketer...

  By Chris Small

  Virtually every day someone asks me what they can do to be 
  successful as an Internet Marketer. Following are some proven 
  guidelines for Internet success.

  Most people want to start off part time and after they build 
  the business up, go full time. This is the correct way to do 
  it, but be forewarned... Your life will not be the same! 

  The first thing to go will be time in front of the TV. It 
  just won't hold your interest as much as Internet Marketing 
  does. You'll get up earlier in the morning to check email 
  and respond to inquiries, etc.. After work, again you'll 
  put in two, three, four or more hours. Yeah, the second 
  thing to go is sleep. Who needs sleep when there's money 
  to be made. :-)

  Seriously though, be advised, you should get completely 
  organized and set up BEFORE doing any kind of major 
  promotion. I know... when you're just starting out you 
  wonder if anyone will come to your me, they 
  will... not overnight mind you, but come they will. And 
  they will want to respond to your offers and ask you 
  questions about your products and services before they 
  buy. You must be prepared. Get ready now. You can always 
  make changes to your materials on the fly, but make sure 
  that you have some materials.

  Set up templates and stationery files in your email program 
  with pertinent information to peoples questions. You may 
  want to look into setting up some autoresponders. Post lots 
  of information on your site pages that you can refer people 
  to. Form alliances with other knowledgeable/experienced 
  web savvy people. Make like a Boy Scout... Be Prepared!

  The MOST important thing that you can do to be successful 
  as an Internet Marketer (in my mind anyway) is to start 
  an opt in ezine. Odds are that if someone simply surfs 
  over to your pages and even see's something that catches 
  their attention, they most likely won't buy right then. 
  BUT, if they hear from you every week and are encouraged 
  to go back to your site regularly, YOU will become a part 
  of their Internet experience and they will come to trust 
  and respect your opinion.

  The next most valuable marketing tool that you have at 
  your disposal is your website. If you have read some of 
  my previous articles you know what's coming next. 


  It's an absolute necessity for a serious marketer. I have 
  two domains and know of many other people who have multiple 
  domains linked together. You've probably been to sites 
  where they clump 101 affiliate programs in with their own 
  products and services and top it off with banners for 
  other unrelated sites. What a mess, how do they expect 
  to sell anything? Each domain should be for a specific 

  The presentation of your site is critical. Click happy 
  surfers need to WOWED with a crisp clean professional 
  look combined with positive selling copy. I'm not talking 
  about graphics heavy pages that take forever to load 
  either. Make sure that your wording and layout keep the 
  surfer interested and eager to read the next line - 
  there are tons of books and reports available on this 
  subject. Enough said.

  You should also offer lots of FREE information (both 
  on your site and in your ezine). One method that I like 
  is information reports. For an example go to You are 
  welcome to copy and paste these ones - email me for 
  text only versions (Please leave the resource box 
  intact). Of course you'll want to write your own as 

  Another good idea is to offer FREE E-books. If you 
  are an authority on any aspects of Internet Marketing 
  consider setting up a Real Audio training library. You 
  can also conduct telephone interviews with established 
  authorities and put them in your library pages.

  So turn off the TV, get up early, prepare your materials 
  in advance, start an ezine, get your own unique domain, 
  design it professionally and load it up with FREE stuff. 
  That's it, right.... well no, that's just the beginning. 
  Then there's the products, the offers, the promotions, 
  search engines, banners, etc.. Hmmm, sounds like work 
  doesn't it? Are you up to the task? Stay tuned we'll be 
  going into more details on each of these subjects in 
  upcoming issues.

  assistance. We are here to help YOU.
