Summary: The mistakes that 99% of all beginner marketers make…

Dear fellow marketers.

Have you ever wondered why, despite your best efforts to get rich online, that it hasn’t happen  yet?


Everyday over 25,000 Americans look for ways to work for themselves online without huge financial risks. But, getting started online is just not that easy. I know it, and all the affiliate marketers that I know, know it. Contrary to popular belief, it can be braw beating and it is time consuming.


Let’s face it, you just cannot earn the six figure income which everyone is talking about if you don’t prepare your business for that task before you start.  Affiliate marketing is the best method of earning huge income online, if you know how to do it. I’ll repeat that, if you know how to do it. And one of the biggest problems that beginning marketers face is that they are overwhelmed with way too much information, to know what to do with or how to channel correctly.  

Because the super affiliate marketer, if you are on their list, is under the assumption that you are already familiar with affiliate marketing. Once you sign up to a few news letters the fun begins.

Don’t make the #1 mistake of not setting up your business first-especially when it’s so easy to do…


This is something so incredibly important that no-one EVER talks about. And each simple instruction seems to require a dozen different skills, things which most beginners do not know. And if you are a total newbie it will probably took you a good 4-6 months just to learn the basics. Take that extra 4 week of time to make sure that everything is in place and then start your marketing. The successful affiliates already have their sites set up, is yours?

Here are just some of the mistakes that beginners make which are fatal to their online business and success.

Mistake #1 – Prepare your business (By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail).The single most important step that you will ever take… Take time to build your business before you venture off into online marketing. Ask questions, find out what it all entails.


Mistake #2 - Search Engine Optimization

Not optimising their sites correctly, but of course if you are a newbie how should you know this.


Mistake #3 - List Building

By not building a list, you will be making one of the biggest mistakes ever, there are many ways to do this, the main thing is to get people coming to your site. And you can easily build a list before you start.


Mistake #4 – Traffic

You need to get people coming to your website, Google also rank you by the number of inbound and outbound links on your site, create an add your URL page and join as many sites as you can which are related to your site.


 Mistake #5 – Tools

This is not really a mistake, but where do you get tools, such as Keyword Elite, or Good Words, without the proper tools it’s impossible for you to accomplish your task. 

Mistake #6 - Take Action

This is the #1most important step that you will ever take. You are expected to take *ACTION* without taking action there is no sense in going through all this. And as in anything or any project you want to accomplish you have to take ACTION.

These are just some of the problems which beginning marketers face in the beginning stages of their business, of course there is a lot more involved to online marketing, but if done correctly you can be earning six figures in no time.There are basically two easy ways of earning money online (1) through your own website, where you promote other companies products or services, or promote your own service or product. Or through Adwords campaigns where you don’t need your own site, but you do need a little extra cash, either way you can earn great income if you know how to do it.

If you can’t afford to advertise on Google as of yet, then your choice is to obtain yourown website, many of  which are free, populate it, promote it and earn extra monthly income and become your own boss. If you don’t have a, website and can’t afford to buy one, go toand download a free Content Management website template, and get yourself started. Do it now. Of course there are many, many different areas of Internet marketing, and it would be redundant to try to write an article naming all or even most of them. But by correcting these mistakes, you will be well on your way to marketing success.
