Marketing 101

Posted by VerniceBulcao on September 29, 2015 at 11:05 AM

Often times when I tell people what I do (which is marketing) they have absolutely no idea what it actually entails. I think most people assume that I sit around all day on a computer, posting random things to Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms with no real outcome.

This couldn't be further from the truth. I have now been marketing on the internet for 3 years and in that time I have learned so much. There is a very steep learning curve to get started initially but once you understand the basics and what type of marketing you want to do, then you can start to reap the rewards. Sure I do post stuff to Facebook, upload YouTube videos etc but those things barely scratch the surface.

I personally do affiliate marketing. I love doing CPA through paid advertising but also do other types of affiliate marketing through SEO (I will create a post to explain what it is soon). With this type of marketing, I am able to make a decent monthly salary and as I am still relatively new to this, I can only imagine how much more I can make, when I am even better. It does take a lot of work and is equivalent to a full time job but I enjoy it and it is very rewarding.

Sure there are some people who make a ton of money doing, what seems like, very little to people on the outside, but what isn't obvious is that these people have worked tirelessly for years with little to no reward BEFORE hitting it big. There are some people who also like to play on this misconception and make even more money this way. The best example that springs to mind is Rich Jerk. Now this guys is as obnoxious as they come. He lives a typical playboy lifestyle and really does rub a lot of people up the wrong way but what people don't realise is that this persona is all part of his marketing strategy. I personally think this guy is a genius!  

Other marketers who I admire include Chris Record. This guy went from broke to millionaire in just a few short years and he definitely knows what he is talking about when it comes to internet marketing. 

Another one of my favorite marketers is Anik Singal. When it comes to email marketing in particular, I am convinced that there is no-one as good as him. He has built multiple lists of hundreds of thousands of people which make him anywhere between $500,000 and $1M per month, every single month. Anik teaches hundreds of thousands of students how to be successful online through email marketing in particular. His latest product is called Publish Academy and in it, Anik shows you how to turn your passions into huge profits. If you want to learn more about this training course, you can pick up a free copy of Anik's latest book Passion To Profit by clicking the link.

So if you are interested in becoming the next online marketing guru, then I would highly recommend you learn more about the industry, who the top dogs are and start to immerse yourself in it. It is a whole other culture but there is LOTS of money in it if you are willing to learn.
