If you are new to Internet Marketing world, and you are trying your luck on this IM thing, the first thing that is going to pop up on your mind is “How can I start the whole Internet Marketing thing?”

You will probably have a lot of other questions, but then, the most basic thing of all when I started the whole thing is “How am I going to start?”

Well, Internet Marketing World is a big world and a lot of IM’s tutorials are provided on the net, paid or free, that is. If you go to and search Internet Marketing as the keyword, you will find huge amount of info out there. And soon, you’ll be in a state that is called “Information Overload”. Yeah, that happened to me. I felt dizzy, even when I close my eyes.

For those planning to make a first move on the Internet Marketing business, I suggest you follow these easy steps, step by step.

1. Get a Good Target

Before getting your foot on a new thing, you should always set your target. A good target of what you are going to achieve on the next few months or years, will make a good reason for you to get going until you reach your goal.

2. Decide on the way to get Your Money

There are several ways of getting your money on Internet Marketing business, for example, affiliate deals, create products, drop ship products, Ad Sense, Paid Surveys, etc. Decide which method that interests you the most. Learn and Focus as much as you can on the method you choose.

3. Buy a domain name and a hosting

There are a lot of free places to claim your stake online, like and, so why buy one if you can get one for free? Investing on a domain and a hosting is a smart way to do IM business, you can never really know when you are going to loose the free things, they can suddenly become paid, or they can suddenly disappear due to lack of income. If you have your own domain and hosting, you can rest assured knowing that they’ll be there as long as you paid for it. You can learn more on domain and hosting here.

4. Learn about list building

One of the biggest mistakes that newbie make is that they do not start building mailing lists the day they start Internet Marketing. A mailing list is a must. A good way to build a list is to create a product or use a PLR product that you give away as a trade for somebody subscribing to your list. Read up on it and get yourself an auto responder.

5. Learn about PLR (Private Label Rights)

It is content written by others that you have the ability to modify for your own benefit. You can use this content in so many ways to build your business. The key is to modify it and make it your own.

6. Join a Group / Mailing List / Forum

Those are the good ways to get your feet going. If you are looking for help, you need someone that are willing to answer your questions. If you are looking to team up to get something started, you still need someone that are on the same interest as you.

7. Consider a wider stream of income

As your method is getting some income for you, consider another method on getting new income stream. Don’t do this until you managed to make money out of the method you choose earlier.

8. Make a work schedule

And if you already make one, stick to it. When it’s time for you to work, do your work. Don’t forget to separate the time for learning and implementing the things you learned. Keep a ratio of 1 to 1 for both so that you don’t forget what you’ve already learned.

9. Don’t be afraid to fail

Fear of failure can lead to anxiety and eventually make you want to quit. Chances are that you will not be a success your first time around. If you know this ahead of time, then each failed attempt at something can be chalked up as a learning experience.
