If you have spent much time here at BeHappy101.com, you may know that I am a big advocate of creating multiple streams of income as a way to generate wealth, happiness, and fulfillment (if the things money can buy are part of your personal Definition of Happiness).
Internet marketing income is one of the ways I suggest everyone consider as part of a multiple streams of income strategy.
What Is Internet Marketing?
Internet marketing, or online marketing, refers to advertising and marketing efforts that use the Web and email to drive direct sales via electronic commerce, in addition to sales leads from Web sites or emails. Internet marketing and online advertising efforts are typically used in conjunction with traditional types of advertising like radio, television, newspapers and magazines.
Specialized Areas of Internet Marketing...
Internet marketing can also be broken down into more specialized areas such as Web marketing, email marketing and social media marketing:
1) Web marketing includes e-commerce Web sites, affiliate marketing Web sites, promotional or informative Web sites, online advertising on search engines, and organic search engine results via search engine optimization (SEO).
One of many examples of "affiliate marketing" is represented by my Amazon program here. If you buy products through amazon.com, it would be great if you would consider using my website as the "link" to your amazon purchase (by using the search widget here) since everything you buy would provide a small "commission" to me for referring you to amazon (so, I am an amazon "affiliate").
There is no extra cost to you and it helps me keep this website up and running, providing happiness information, products and services to as many people as possible.
Other affiliate marketing examples can be found in many of the "BeHappy101.com Stores" found throughout this site. You can access the stores by clicking here to see more examples of affiliate marketing.
2) Email marketing involves both advertising and promotional marketing efforts via e-mail messages to current and prospective customers.
3) Social media marketing involves both advertising and marketing (including viral marketing) efforts via social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Digg.
One example of Email marketing is represented by the banner here. I send offers like this to people on my email list (people who have "opted in" for other offers from me - like my Newsletter subscribers (see the banner at the top right of this page). Here, though, I am giving away 3 books to my readers.
How Much Income Is Possible With
Like with most other things, the amount of money anyone you can make doing internet marketing varies from nothing to literally millions of dollars PER MONTH, depending on many factors, such as time and effort put in and your overall strategy.
Unlike many other things, though, it is relatively easy to make a very nice income - even a full-time income - with much less time and effort than most people spend at their job.
I know of many people who make $10,000 - $50,000 and more PER MONTH, spending less than 20 hours a week on internet marketing.
Generating income from internet marketing can start very quickly. You
can start today and literally be making money tomorrow. It doesn't
usually happen that way, but it it possible. It took me several months
before I started making money online. My goal is to be able to derive a
mid-to-high-six-figure income from it and be able to do what I want
from wherever I want. The picture below, for example, is from several months ago, when we were on our boat, tucked into a cove at Catalina Island, all by ourselves. Although we were mainly relaxing, I did do some work on this website - like my daily Thought for The Day (which I post every single day, 365 days per year).
