For anyone thinking about making online, there are some basis steps that guarantee success. Without knowing what steps to take Internet Marketing can appear difficult, but if you put a daily routine together and have the determination to succeed you will realise that it is straight forward.
 
The Nine essential steps to making money online are:
1)      Identify your market
2)      Select a product(s) to market
3)      Create an authority site
4)      Direct traffic to your site, creating an audience
5)      Offer a free gift on your website
6)      Create a landing page
7)      Send free gifts/products out to your audience
8)      Offer your own product(s) to your audience
 
1.      Identify your market
This step is vital as it will determine how success you can become in Internet Marketing.  If your user group is poorly defined you may find it almost impossible to be competitive and for it to be profitable for you.  Your success will be measured on how profitable you become so you need to think wisely when selecting your market. 
 By using keywords in Google will help you identify your potential niche.  To aid you with your keyword search you may choose to use of the many scientific tools available (e.g. SiteSell’s Brainstorm).   You can use forums like Warrior to help you decide on a forum.  Using your intuition to select a product is not a good idea, simply because our opinions are not all the same.
 
2.      Select a product(s) to market
It is advisable to first start selling someone else’s product.  A lot of money can still be made this way quite quickly.  Once your website audience has been built you have learnt how and not how to sell products then you can introduce your product to the market. There are tons of products and affiliate sites (e.g. Clickbank and Webgain).  Using these sites you will earn commission for recommending and selling other people’s products to a niche who are interested in buying it.
 
3.      Create an authority website
Who are you?  People need to know where your ‘shop / office’ is!  By having a website allows people to see you as a real person.  Rather than create a website some people prefer to have a blog.  It is however more appropriate to have a website if you intend to be around for a long time selling products online.  Blog are only sufficient as a temporary measure and more relevant for news-oriented sites with time sensitive information.  Websites on the other hand are organised by subjects. 
 
4.      Direct traffic to your site, creating an audience
Now that you have created your authority website, you need people to come and visit it, thereafter opt-in into your very own mailing  list.  A mailing list is key to your success as a Internet Marketer as these are the people who will purchase the products you want to sell. You are also able to create a forum where you and others on your mailing list have a community to share ideas about the niche you have identified.  Having a relationship with the people on your mailing list helps you to create the foundation in which you will be able to make money.
 
5        Offer a free gift on your website
There are lots of free valuable contents available on the Internet to give away.  You should never only sell to those on your mailing list.  Rather it would be more appropriate to give, give , give then sell.  By giving away gifts on your website will be noticed by Google if your web pages are optimized for a single keyword.  By building value and trust on your website, when you do sell a product those on your mailing list are more likely to want to buy. 
 
6.      Create a landing page
Landing pages also known as squeeze pages they allow visitors to your website to opt in to your mailing list.  The purpose of landing pages are to help you capture your leads when they visit your websites.  The tools use as GetResponse and Aweber are specifically designed to do this.
 
7.      Send free gifts/products out to your audience
By building a relationship with people on your mailing list, you are able to drip campaigns to nurture your audience prior to selling to them. The nature of drip campaigns will help you to build a relationship via automated e-mails.  In the automated e-mails you are then able to give free gifts and affiliate products away prior to offering to sell them a gift.  Simply because you have built a relationship with people on your mailing list by giving them free gifts, your recommendation to purchase a product will go down well!
 
8.      Offer your own product(s) to your audience
Having built a relationship with your audience by offering free gifts, you are now ready to sell through the same method of automated e-mails. Simply because you have built a relationship with people on your mailing list by giving them free gifts, your recommendation to purchase a product will go down well!  You may now want to design and create your own product.  With the knowledge acquired from steps 1-7 you should be able to make more money than selling affiliate products
