Beginner Guide to Online Marketing
If you have been online for longer than 5 minutes you will have discovered there are many ways on how to make money online for a beginner. Actually hundreds, even thousands! In this beginner guide online marketing I want to give you a few things to think about. Being new and learning how to make money online can be daunting, frustrating and if you start paying for things before researching them – it can quickly become a very costly exercise.
So Where Do You Look?
I guess most of us these days we turn to Google for just about anything. And we all do it if we are looking online to make money as well. So, to know how to make money online for a beginner, then Google is definitely the first port of call.
So you stumble across something interesting that you think you could do. But is it legitimate? Or is it a scam? Can I really have a $5,000 sale by next week?
Seriously, you have to be realistic and below I list a few pointers through my own experience on what to look out for – when you are a beginner wanting to make money online.
Tips For A Beginner to Look Our For!
So you have found something good – Now what?
So you have found something that is going to make you the money. And the company is called – lets say – The Millionaires Club. First things first. Get the company name and go and Google it for a Review.
Google; The Millionaires Club Review or Millionaires Club Review.
And go through the Reviews on the first page of Google that you find. Don’t do just one! Some people are bias, and some people may be part of that company, again being very bias. Hopefully you can find an insiders honest and genuine Review.
The Review should cover prices, the training and tools, support if it is provided and what the company as a whole is about. It should give a pretty good indication of whether it is a good company or a downright scam. (You can check out my Review on Wealthy Affiliate and get an idea of what a good Review should cover)
Now it’s on to the Company owners
Go and Google them and see what you come up with. The last 2 companies I was participating in (and discovered both were scammy!) After researching one owner I had discovered he had been charged with fraud a number of years ago and there are many complaints about how he operates all over the internet – so I got my money back and high tailed out of that one.
The other one I was with for 5 months and doing really well. However after 4 of the 5 Leadership team left, we discovered there was NO product – which makes it one BIG Ponzi scheme – so I got out of that one too!
So another big tip from this beginner guide online marketing. Do your research on the owners, it is really important.
Does The Company Let you in for Free?
These days alot of programs will let you get in and trial their product, or platform for free. Even for a period of 7 days which is great. It gives you time to get in, get a feel for the platform. Of course you are not going to be rich in a week however it gives you the chance to look around and see if what the Company offered you is all it’s cracked up to be.
My latest online business I am part of did just that. Wealthy Affiliate is their name – you can sign in here and Check it out Free for yourself! The brilliant thing is you can remain an unpaid member for an unlimited time if you want. But more importantly you get to go in, see what it is about, see the training and support and if its exactly what they offered from the outside looking in. And a month in I can say it is what they said it was… and a whole lot more!
I will only Work with You If….
Another tip I want to give you, is don’t fall for the Leaders that will not work with you unless you buy into their business at a high level. I heard that recently about a business that specific Leaders wont work with people unless you bought into a $125 “inner circle” membership per month.
I can also remember my mentor saying in a personal development company I was part of years ago, that she wouldn’t work with people unless they bought the first product. To her that meant they were serious. To the beginner getting started, that meant $2285 out of pocket – just so they would be working with her. It’s just not on! So be very wary of the “conditions” that these Leaders put upon you as a newbie.
Are there Upsells You don’t know about?
Some Companies have a range of products however there is nothing worse when you’re “sold on testimonials.” and if you buy this product and resell it etc…. you too can make a lot of money. Only to get into the business to find out there is a bunch of higher ticket products. Alot more than you were made aware of when you joined.
So really do you your due diligence and make sure you know exactly what costs are involved when you go into an online business. There are many factors to look out for and the fact we have the internet at our fingertips these days, you have a much better chance of finding out about the scams, the overpriced, the downright B.S Companies before you put a dime down.
I do hope you found some good tips on this beginner guide online marketing and use them! There is so much online you can research about and make a truly informed decision.
