    Internet Marketing - Surviving the First Year
    by Keith Thompson

    So you've decided to take the leap into deep water and go
    into business for yourself, specifically into Internet
    Marketing. Congratulations! This was a smart decision, one
    that will eventually reward you with all the dreams you can
    dream. Your challenge now is to survive that 1st year.

    Hopefully you're reading this early on in your endeavors,
    and can make the adjustments necessary to keep your
    enterprise afloat and your bank account bouyant. Here are
    several things the "gurus" neglected to mention along the
    way to building your own internet marketing empire!

    1 - Who are you listening to? There are a lot of people
    who've made a lot of money, and they're all too eager to
    tell you about it, frequently in the form of their latest
    product. It's very easy to find yourself tuning in too many
    voices, instead of riding one horse till it either gets you
    there or is spent. Find a niche that interests you, find
    products that are either yours or through an affiliate
    program, and focus entirely on your plan, not allowing
    yourself to chase rabbits.

    2 - What is certain! And that is that the real money to be
    made in internet marketing is produced in the following
    ways: owning your own site(s), your own products, your own
    opt-in mailing list, and your own vision! Think about it!
    Not one of the internet millionaires to whom we look to for
    advice has lacked any of these for very long. You bought
    their products off their sites, joined their mailing lists,
    and to one degree or another shared their vision. If you
    haven't already, begin immediately to build your own empire.
    Build a site, start learning about traffic, linking, opt-in
    lists and all the other essentials necessary for long-term
    success. Affiliate marketing will only take you so far. In
    fact, most of the top affiliates have several of their own

    3 - The learning curve. There is a certain amount of
    information you simply have to either learn (or pay for).
    Don't discount the fact that this will take a little time.
    One doesn't discover how to build and market a fully-
    optimized web site in a month. Or three! This is; and
    because of the fluid nature of the web; always will be a
    work-in-progress. Do what you can do every day and come back
    tomorrow for more. Don't be discouraged when the money takes
    a while to appear; if you do this right, when it does show
    up it will be worth the wait!

    4 - A support system. Get one. Don't plan on supporting
    yourself from your business right away. It took the best at
    the very least several months to start seeing any real
    money. Don't despair if you turn out to be mortal, too. Give
    yourself a chance at this; the rewards are simply too great.
    I'll leave you with a quote that sustained me many a night:
    "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my
    ship." - Louisa May Alcott
