If there is any one key factor to quickly attaining success with Internet Marketing, it is traffic. Success with your Internet business has the same requirements as any traditional brick and mortar business. If people cannot find your store you have no business. The same on the Internet, if people cannot find your website you have no business.
The secret to quickly and legitimately making money online is to attract prospects to your website. As always the big question is how to attract prospects.
The Key to Successful Internet Marketing
Having goods and services marketed on the internet seems second nature now, but actually internet marketing is a relatively new phenomenon. When the internet first started and more of the public began to access it, companies began to realize that they could utilize the internet to provide information to potential customers. The first examples of internet marketing were simply text websites. They were very basic and simple with no pictures or graphics. As the internet started to develop, more and more companies realized that they had a global audience at their disposal. Websites became more complex. They contained pictures of products and graphics intended to keep the customer interested.
By our standards today, these first websites seem archaic. However, they served their purpose as people began to turn to the internet for information about companies and what they had to offer. If someone wanted to buy something, they would call the company on a phone number provided by the website. Eventually, the technology existed so that companies could sell their products right from their website. E-commerce began to grow very quickly once methods to securely provide your credit card number became available. Consumers could now order products right from their home. Companies could reach customers all over the world. Online auction sites became very popular as people could sell their items to each other for a small fee.
There also was an increased use of the internet as a source of advertising. Companies began to place ads on other websites to promote their products. Today pay per click advertisements benefit both the publishers of the websites and the company which has goods to sell. Affiliate programs are also very popular. They allow website owners to advertise products on their website and if a customer purchases the item, then the website owner gets a percentage of the sale. The internet has even been used as a primary source of advertising. Companies have created innovative advertising programs, sometimes referred to as viral marketing. Viral marketing seeks to create a buzz about a product through word of mouth. Some viral marketing plans even use alternate reality games in order to promote a particular product.
I have been doing some Affiliate Internet Marketing lately. This is an activity which i have read a lot about and even played around with but never became real serious about it. I purchased a book a few weeks back and everything just clicked in the affiliate marketing arena.
One thing that always has driven me crazy about Affiliate marketing is the fact that when you join an affiliate program and log on to the back office, there is training material. You will find banners, text ads, email ads, offline classified ads and many other promotional tools.
They will tell you to join the surf for traffic sites, submit some articles to directories and Ezines, post replies in forums leaving your link in the signature file. (Some forums dont even allow affiliate links) and answer some questions in Yahoo answers leaving links to your site here and there as references.

One normal facet of online marketing where this effect is highly frequent concerns squeeze pages and an additional site. We have all witnessed and used squeeze pages when somebody is building an email list for online marketing. Based on personal preference, the marketer may deposit the fresh optin on a web page or other site. Obviously what is delivered after the person subscribes is the promoters decision. However, there is certain risk in this situation that embodies this notion of being consistent in your marketing which we will clarify.
The overall, generally unknown, feeling perceived by the prospect will be impacted by the design and overall color scheme of the squeeze page and the subsequent site that is looked at. If the comparison is enough, then that will be inconsistency and will produce an uneasy influence on the person. The apparent solution to this is simply make the squeeze page much more similar to the subsequent site that is viewed.
Let’s look at something that many affiliate marketers deal with. Making review sites has been a very prevalent method, and usually there are several links to outside product web pages. It is not possible to make your review site, or page, similar to the vendors or most of them if you link to many. You can pick your site colors so they are suitable with your vendor sites, though. It is easy to reduce an uncomfortable problem between designs and colors, and you can have something that is somewhat neutral looking. Of course this does bring certain subjectivity into the picture. So the best solution is to at a minimum try to reduce the contrast as much as achievable.
