    Before I started doing any internet marketing I thought ans was told that I only had to put a couple hours of work in a week and make nice money from it. After I started I soon figured out that that was not exactly the case or at least not for me.

    I think that all the ways of making money online are perceived as being easy and it takes little effort to make nice money. Most of the time though I do not think that is actually how it is.

    The thing that I found funny one time was that someone who said that to me had tried to do internet marketing in the past but was not successful. Since he did not do well he puts down those who are successful or who are trying to be.

    Many people are like that unfortunately. Just because they don't do well they are putting down those who do or those why try.

    That is a very common thing that people say and think. I too thought it would be a lot easier than it is turned out to be.

    Yes the more you know about internet marketing then it can get a little easier. You can try to read all that you can to help you learn more and make it a little easier for you.

    I usually try to ignore those kind of people because they are a negative influence on a person's spirit. :D

    In all fairness when I first got started in internet marketing I really did not have much time to dedicate to it so that had something to do with it. Now I am going to soon have much more time due to a change in the amount of hours I need to put into my regular job. It may be easier now with more time I can put into my marketing efforts.

    It started to get more easier for me as I learned more things and know the proper ways to do things. I am always trying to learn more and get better with my internet marketing.

    I am trying to learn more about it all the time. I often spend hours at a time reading different things to try to learn more.

    I do that too. You can check on this forum and on some marketing blogs and learn many things. I am trying to learn some other marketing methods right now and learning some things I did not know yet.

    Along with reading , Try to implement the ideas with your own twist.

    1. Select a method.
    2. Add your twist in that.
    3. Implement & Test.
    4. Check the Results .
    5. If positive you got a method to earn .
    6. If negative repeat.

    Without testing & falling you can't get desired result.

    I have been trying some things like this just recently and I am keeping track of what works better. I did not used to keep track of most of my things and was guessing a lot and I think that makes some mistakes. I am also keeping good track of what does not work too good.

    I know a little bit about marketing being in business management for many years but that is just traditional marketing and not internet marketing. The internet type is rather different from the traditional stuff I am used to.

    You are right on that because the old offline marketing can be very different from internet marketing. I think some of the skills will help you but is can be very different and take some time to learn more about it.

    Some of the things you know are a little bit of help but there are so many new things to learn and starting from the beginning with some of those things can be tiresome.

    At least you have some of the basics for marketing and that will help a little at least then if you knew nothing of marketing.

    Some basics yes but many things are so different that they just have to be learned from the beginning as if you are completely new to it.

    Internet marketing is easy if you know all the strategies to market your product or services and able to reach your target audience. Internet marketing is not limited to a single step, you can try new ideas and implement that idea to promote your business. Advertise your business via local listing is one of the strategy to list your business to gain visibility in your local market.
