Image for how to become an Internet marketer.Are you looking for a way to create an income stream that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without you having to work every hour of the day on it? Then you should look into Internet marketing because of the massive potential to generate an automated revenue stream for yourself.

However, there are a number of things to consider so, in this article, we will discuss how you could become a successful Internet marketer and perhaps eventually quit your job.

Making money on the Internet is a dream that many people have, of course. There are many websites and blogs dedicated to the ideal lifestyle of living on the beach, running your business from a laptop, and travelling the world – all the while making money on the Internet. While some of this is in fact true, they tend to ignore the “hard work” aspect of Internet marketing.

One of the many factors to consider is whether you are going to be an affiliate marketer, or a product owner / vendor. There are pros and cons to both – it really depends on your personality and skill set.

However, if you’re just getting started with Internet marketing, it is best to start with affiliate marketing. You can then start making money pretty quickly if you do it right. Then, you can use what you learn as an affiliate marketer to create and sell a product of your own down the line.

There are many courses you can buy on the Internet that will teach you how to do Internet marketing. However, you should exercise caution with a lot of this information because there’s a lot of hype out there: there are a lot of false promises and information that no longer works…

Many new Internet marketers have been led down the wrong path and have spent a lot of money on outdated information. This can lead to frustration and ultimately failure as an Internet marketer.

Don’t let this happen to you. You should be very skeptical of informational products that promise “overnight riches,” especially those that promise it can all be achieved without you having to do much work. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is!

As for which courses and information you should purchase, look for case studies that are recent and from reputable sources. Join a few forums and start networking with other people. Within a short time you will make new friends and they can also help steer you in the right direction.

If you have been with Internet marketing for some time, you should consider selling your own product. If you’re the product owner / vendor and have affiliates promoting your products for you, you can make some serious money.

You also should consider traffic sources such as pay per click (PPC) or search engine optimization (SEO) to capture leads. Finally you should have an efficient sales automation funnel (autoresponder) to help convert those leads into actual sales.

As you can see there are things to consider when starting your own Internet marketing business. However if you stay consistent, work hard, and don’t give up, you’ll most likely find success and finally be able to quit your job on your own terms.
