How would you spend an extra £ 500 a week?
If you've been on the internet long enough to take a breath then you've probably already been bombarded by hundreds of the bold claims telling you how a single person has managed to start earning ridiculous amounts of money in 48 hours. Do you believe a word of it? How about if I told you that a business can be set up on the internet in 5 days and start earning reasonable money by the second week? Do you believe that? You should, because it is more than possible. Internet business really works.
I am one such internet business as I like to call myself. In reality I'm just a young adult trying to get by. Internet business has given me this opportunity. More specifically, internet marketing has given me this opportunity. Thousands of people are already learning their living on the internet alone. Clever, is not it?
Everyone seems to want more money because more money means more free time and better time spent. Unfortunately on the internet you really do have to watch carefully for the scams and overblown promises. On the internet, no-one is there to watch your back. Luckily you've found this article written by a real, honest internet business; me. Keep reading for a brief introduction to internet marketing and hopefully you'll decide to join me and many others in making money online.
Internet businesses usually do very well. Many times they perform better than normal businesses. It depends on what is being sold and how they're marketed. Millions of people do quite a bit of shopping online. In fact currents estimates are that £ 40 billion is traded via the internet every year, and a lot of this money goes to internet marketers such as me. Understanding what people want to buy online is vital to being successful on the internet.
Retail Type Internet Businesses.
If you're considering starting an online retail site, you first need to ask yourself what people would buy online. This is where choosing your niche comes in. basically you can do this by considering your own interests and using some common sense. For example, people would not usually buy a newspaper or groceries on the internet, but millions of other things are bought online. Perhaps the most lucrative area is the sale of information.
However I knew from the start that any actual retail would require too much time, effort, money and other people. This was not realistic for me so I turned to internet marketing and helping other people sell their things.
Doing this is called being an affiliate and has many benefits. First of all, there is no need for stock, storage, postage, sales or accounts. It is simply just the process of advertising other people's products through a site, paid advertising, articles, email and many more. Best of all you can often do it for free.
eBay is of course one of the most prominent of all the methods for successful internet businesses. People are finding that they can sell all sorts of items through an eBay store; Many do the same retail type store or drop shipping type of business through eBay. There are costs that you incur to run an eBay store but these are usually minimal. EBay is not just for sellers, it can be cleverly used to enhance your affiliate efforts as well.

Google AdSense and AdWords
These are two ingenious opportunities and very, very useful for internet marketers. Basically you create an advert and pay a minimal fee every time someone clicks on it. The adverts are displayed in many places including the search engines and on websites. This may not make you rich but it all helps.
