Are You Using The Right Internet Marketing Tools?

If you want to win the game play it with the right tools

The one thing about internet marketing is that it never gets boring.

Internet marketing techniques are changing at warp speed.

If you don’t keep up you will get left behind.

The internet is providing an abundance of opportunities for the new entrepreneurs emerging in the new global economy.

One of the great challenges is not getting yourself caught up with shiny object syndrome.

That kills more dreams because people go chasing after speed and automation before they have a stable foundation built for their business.

You need the right internet marketing tools to work with, but how do you know what is right for you?

I have been in the internet marketing industry for over 5 years now.

I can tell you from direct experience that it takes awhile to find the right people to know, like, trust and to follow.

Most so called gurus are trying to sell you puzzles with only 9 out of the 10 pieces in the box.

The 10th one is their next product launch and they don’t care if you succeed.

Does this sound a little familiar to any of you?

Where do you start in your selection of internet marketing tools?

The very first internet marketing tool that I recommend you invest in is sitting on top of your shoulders.

Your mindset.

Your mindset, guaranteed, is going to make or break you.

It does not matter if you have all the best tools, resources and systems, if your mindset is not right you will fail.

Anytime you combine humans and technology you are going to have glitches and problems.

Get used to it.

That’s life in an internet marketing business.

Before you jump in head first you want to have 100% clarity about what you want.

If you decide that what you want is to only make a lot of money, you might as well put a ring in your nose now.

That’s because you will be going after every automated tool or system that somebody has promised you in their sales copy will fill up your bank account fast.

If you are only out to serve you and not others then stop reading this because your lottery mentality is going to ruin you.

In search of the right online marketing tools for you

Now that you have focused on preparing the right mindset and you know what you want, let’s find some online marketing tools to work with.

There are two basic approaches to take on your journey in internet marketing.

You can take the long road of using free tools which are mostly all time based.

Or you can take the paid advertising route.

One will cost you lots of time and the other will cost you lots of money to learn.

What do you have more of?

I recommend that you go in search of the right mentor that resonates with you.

All the great mentors that I have come across and follow have taught me to start with free marketing tools and then use paid methods to scale up.

A great mentor is interested in your success not just theirs.

Lets take a look at some of the ways you can earn money online.

Imagine that you are building a house.

What happens if you build a weak foundation?


Your house will fall down or collapse.

The same thing will happen to your internet marketing business if you don’t build a solid foundation.

Free marketing tools get you going and get your feet wet.

Internet marketing strategies that make sense for your business

Lets look at some of the simple ways for you to get started in your internet business.

What are the basic online marketing tools that you need?

If you have chosen to do affiliate marketing you can get started with or without a website.

You can use landing pages (capture pages) , you will need a sales funnel builder and an autoresponder.

For those of you totally new an autoresponder is an email sending service.

I have used both Aweber and Get Response for years and recommend both.

You can go here to check them out.

You use your sales funnel to drive traffic to and then use your landing pages to collect names and email addresses.

This is list building 101.

Oh yeah!

Don’t market or promote crap even if it converts well.

One principle that you apply to the foundation of your internet marketing strategies is to provide value for others.

The simple reason is, do you always want one time buyers or do you want to get and keep customers?

What do you think costs more,to acquire a new customer or making an old customer happy?

Smart ethical internet marketers think long term and lazy unethical internet marketers think quick buck.

Which do you want to be?

One more thing about the mindset.

You are in a business so you need to invest in your business with the right internet marketing tools.

As soon as you start to say this costs too much or you have too many expenses you are on your way out of the game.

Other internet marketing strategies to make money online

One of the most common ways people start online is with blogging.

This requires you to set up a wordpress blog and you will also need an autoresponder to send follow up emails to your list.

You pick a niche and then identify a target market in that niche.

Stay focused with your blog posts and start to position yourself as an authority online.

The online marketing tools you will need  for most online businesses are basic to get started.

A blog, hosting, your own domain name and an autoresponder .

When you are posting content of any kind it is wise to use a ping service to push the url of the blog post out there.

You can get a free account set up at   and you ping every piece of content to notify the search engines faster.

You want to set up an account with Google webmaster and then link Google analytics to your blog.

This will give you a gauge of the traffic coming to your website, how long they stay, # of page views and % of new and returning visitors.

For images you can go to  for low cost images.

You have to be careful using Google images as they often have copyright on the images.

You can also set up a free account with SEO Quake which will appear on your Chrome Tool bar and this gives you # indexed links, ranking info and other stats.

On your Google webmaster account you can also have free access to Google Keyword Planner which is a great tool for doing keyword search.

Your content needs to have focus so you can use the keyword planner to determine what are the best keywords in your niche to focus on.

Don’t go after keywords with high volumes as they will be too much competition.

Go after keywords that range in search numbers from 100-2000.

Once you start to populate your blog with content you will start to generate more organic traffic to your site.

Using online marketing tools to advance your business

Once you have started to develop your business with the free online tools, you will be ready to look at the PPC (pay per click) aspect.

The PPC game is a high risk game for most internet marketers because of the places they go to buy their traffic sources.

Most of the paid traffic sources are 100% garbage.

This is where the right mentor(s) come into play.

PPC is not a game for the meek and mild mannered.

You can burn through a few credit cards before you realize you are in over your head.

The paid advertising or PPC aspect is the way to go if you want to be able to scale your business up.

You can’t scale a business model based on time based strategies.

Unless you have figured out how to get more than 24 hours in a day.

If you want to learn both free and paid strategies with step by step guided training process then I have good news for you.

You can experience the best step by step training produced in the industry today.
