Oct 12, 2007
Building an Internet marketing business is not as easy as others might think or as some people lead you to believe. It is more than just simply connecting your personal computer to the Internet and start earning income through your Internet marketing business. It is most important that you have a plan about how your online business is going to look. In other words, it is vital that you have done your research first before taking the plunge of getting into Internet marketing. Many people soon become disheartened with their online business because they have failed to do the initial research and simply give up.

One of the most successful Internet marketeers is the late Corey Rudl. Starting from his parents humble basement area he created 4 highly-successful businesses and became one of the most famous names in Internet marketing. With the help of over 60,000 affiliates, these four Internet-based businesses are generating an average of $6.6 million worth of sales per year. His websites attract over 1.8 million visitors every month.
