The other angle that this podcast takes is it tries to focus on people like me that are trying to start internet businesses part time. That’s how I got my start. I’m still working my internet business part time while I maintain a day job. This is possible, and this is what this podcast is targeted at.
So, this podcast is for new internet marketers who are trying to get a start part time. We’ll also some advanced content in this podcast that will appeal to a broad range of internet marketers. So, if you’re not a new internet marketer, stay tuned, I hope to hold your attention.
Now, as I said, I’m Mark Mason from MasonWorld.com. I’m a family man. I have three children and a fourth one on the way. I have a demanding day job. That day job can run anywhere from 50 to 70 hours a week, and I run my internet business almost completely at night. So, this podcast therefore, is going to be a short podcast.
You’re busy and I’m busy. I’m not going to lay a 45 minute podcast on you every week. On the contrary, these are going to be 10 to 15, maybe at the outside 20 minute episode that you can enjoy and consume quickly in your iPod or while you’re sitting at your PC without a lot of worry about having to schedule a big chunk of time to listen to it.
I’ll keep the episodes short. In the first several podcasts I’ll cover the business models that are possible on the internet, at least a bunch of them. The way I’ll do that is I’ll use two resources. The first resource I’ll use is a resource that you can get on Amazon.com, Yanik Silver’s book Moonlighting on the Internet.
There will be a link to that at MasonWorld.com/silver. That’s a great book if you’re getting started in internet marketing, that goes over five of the main business models that are available to internet marketers that want to get started making money on the internet.
The other resource that we’ll use is a report by one of my favorite marketers online, Jimmy D. Brown. It will be his report 10 Proven Ways to Make at Least 10,000 Dollars Every Month on the Internet. We will cover most of the 10 ways in the first several episodes, and we’ll tie it into Yanik’s book. You can get that free download from MasonWorld.com at MasonWorld.com/10ways. You can spell it out or use the numbers, MasonWorld.com/10ways.
So, two options if you want to get started quickly. One is Yaniks’ book, which you can buy on Amazon.com through the link MasonWorld.com/silver. Or you can download the free report from Jimmy D. Brown 10 Proven Ways to Make at Least 10,000 Dollars Every Month. I recommend them both, I’ve read them both, and they’re fantastic.
Our plan is to go through those business models, talk about them a little bit to give you an idea of what’s possible on the internet. Then really niche our topics to affiliate marketing, and specifically niche affiliate marketing. So, that’s where we’re headed with the podcast is start to have a series of episodes about how to build successful niche affiliate marketing business in your spare time at home.
How to pick a niche. How to establish a presence in the niche. How to do affiliate marketing. We’ll talk a little bit about Adsense and how to build Adsense sites as a way to diversify your business model. Also, how to build affiliate sites where you’re selling affiliate products.
Now, if you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, don’t worry about it. We’re going to cover it. We’ll talk all about it over the next several episodes, maybe 10 or so episodes.
One thing I want to do in this series is talk about the three most important things that internet marketers should know. What I’ve done is I’ve started a series of interviews. I’ve got two interviews in the can already, as they say in the film industry.
One from noted internet marketer and author of the viral eBook, The 5 Dollar Formula. His name is Joshua Spaulding. He’ll be telling you about the three most important things new internet marketers should know in the next podcast episode.
Then I’ve also been able to score an interview with Jon Leger. He is the famous software author of systems like 3 Way Links, One Way Links, and My Way Links. Jon will be talking to you about the three most important things that new internet marketers should know. He also an exciting new eBook that’s specifically targeted at internet marketers. We’ll get to that in episode three.
My three most important things an internet marketer should know are as follows. Number one, the first thing a new internet marketer needs to realize is that it is possible to make money online.
All the standard disclaimers apply. Your mileage may vary. You can fail to make money online. All of those normal disclaimers. I’m not promising you that you can make money online. But, it’s my contention that anyone that really works hard and follows a proven system can make money online. I really do believe that.
The second thing is that you should find a business model and find someone you trust. Follow that business model and stay focused. Avoid getting distracted. One of the issues about internet marketing is that internet marketers are really good at selling things to other internet marketers.
You need to avoid the temptation to follow every bright and shiny object or to buy everything that comes into your inbox. You need to find a business model, find someone you trust to follow in implementation of that business, and go do it. Stay focused and you’ll like the results.
Then the third thing I would say, and this kind of goes without saying and this applies to a lot more things than just internet marketing, and that is you should never give up. You will fail. The faster you fail, and the faster you learn from your mistakes, the faster you will be able to correct those mistakes, get on with your life, and be successful.
One of the great things about internet marketing is that the investment to get started is really low. So, you can afford to fail and the cost to you is not much more than your time in a lot of cases. Never give up. You will be successful. That’s the only way to be successful is to keep at it until you are.
That wraps it up for the first episode. It kind of gives you an idea of where we’re headed. I hope you enjoyed getting a sense of where we’re going.
