10 Reasons To Become an Online Marketer

Jul 1, 2008
If you're an entrepreneur or marketer and you don't know much about Internet marketing, you need to learn. If you're not up on the latest in Internet marketing, you'll need to learn about right away. If you don't, you could be missing out on money you could be earning right now and even lose greater money as time goes on.

Here are 10 reasons why.

1) THE INTERNET IS HERE TO STAY. The Internet is not some flash in the pan. It's THEE wave to ride in the 21st century. Every single year sees great leaps in the amount of Internet traffic and the amount of information, including business and product marketing information, placed on the Web. Wake up to this reality and use it or lose out.

2) ONLINE MARKETING: A CHEAP WAY TO GO. Guess what? Internet marketing is cheap. Let's say you're trying to run a brick-and-mortar store and are still making a lot of use of paper mail outs. Okay, so maybe you're having some success, but you'll never get the type of success or return on investment that you can with Internet marketing. Most likely, your clients know the Internet and surf on it daily. Prospective clients, too, are in this boat. Why should you spend all that money on advertising with paper mailing when you can do it much more quickly and cheaply with online marketing? By the same token, if you're trying to run an online business and no one's coming to your website, having skills in Internet marketing is a must. It's cheap, it's relatively easy, and best of all, it can give you a major return on your investment -- both in time and money.

3) INTERNET MARKETING IS FAST. Once you get things initially set up, marketing online, using digital power, takes off almost by itself due to its viral nature. You can never move as fast offline as you can online, because the Net is the information hub of the 21st century.

4) INTERNET MARKETING IS "EASY," RELATIVELY SPEAKING. Not only is Internet marketing faster and cheaper than its traditional counterpart, but it's also relatively easy compared to traditional marketing. You don't have to have salesmen working for you, you don't have to make cold calls, you don't have to stuff envelopes, and you don't have to do voiceovers.

5) INTERNET MARKETING IS JUST MORE FUN. Work in your pajamas. Hell, work naked. Work while listening to your favorite music as loud as you want. Go to any website you want to, whenever you want to--there's no risk of being fired.

6) ONLINE MARKETING MEANS FREEDOM. Of course, you're going to have to work a little bit and make your Internet marketing business a success, but if you can swing this, you can fire your boss and get out of the 9-to-5 grind. Work when you want, as much as you want. You're the boss.

7) IT'S A GREAT FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY. Basically, you can sell whatever you want, there are as many products or services out there as there are people, pretty much. And? You can go online and seek them out at very little cost to you.

8) YOU HAVE GLOBAL PROSPECTS. Your prospects are literally global (that is, as long as they speak English, likely). This is why they call it the "World Wide Web."

9) IT'S THE LATEST THING. To keep up with your competitors, you're going to need cutting-edge online marketing content. If you don't, your competitors will eat you alive.

10) GET IN NOW, WHILE PRICES ARE GOOD. If you get into business for yourself today, you'll do so at lower cost than you will in the future, likely. Online advertising costs are increasing as more people jump on board with this most lucrative venture. So jump on board today, and save some money.
