The 13 Hidden Treasures of Internet Marketing
Most people get into internet marketing because it looks like a good way to make
money from home. These people usually don't realize that initial sales are only a
small piece of the pie. Don't be like them and miss out on all the hidden treasures!
As you read this article I want you to read about these hidden treasures and look at
your job or most traditional businesses. If you compare what you know to what I'm
going to share with you it will be obvious to you that your job or traditional
business can't offer you the steal of a deal you can get with being an internet
marketer. And I'm not mentioning obvious benefits like not wasting time and gas money
on commuting to work.
So here we go. The 13 Hidden Benefits of Internet Marketing:
1. TAX BREAKS. Yes, terrific tax breaks. When you operate a home based business you
can write off the costs for:
The area in your home you use for the business
Office supplies (including your computer)
Related tools (hosting fees, journals, magazines, cable TV)
Meals and entertainment
Legal and professional services
And much, much more
Talk to an accountant to get a complete list of all the tax breaks you may qualify for.
2. Low Startup Costs. Most businesses cost AT LEAST $5,000 to get started. That's the
VERY low end. You can actually start making money on the internet by joining an
affiliate program for free and marketing with free ads. Even if you're getting your
own site up it can be done for only a few hundred dollars.
3. Low Operating Costs. Once you're up and running you can build your business
on a budget of a hundred dollars a month or less. I'm including operating expenses
like hosting fees, merchant accounts, etc. The less money you spend, the more time it
will take, but you don't have that choice in most businesses. You usually have to
have a lot of cash or you can't get started.
4. High Profit Margin. Since your costs are low you keep more of the money
you make from sales. If you sell a product delivered online (like e-books) you don't
have to pay for shipping either.
5. Market for Little or No Money. You probably already know this, but don't
take it for granted. Online you can submit free ads, do ad swaps with your ezine, use
pay per click search engines, etc. Check out how much advertising costs offline. Just
to mail 1,000 letters costs $340.00! Instead you can e-mail your offer to 100,000
people for free.
6. You Don't Need Your Own Product. There are a ton of folks with great
products you can sell through affiliate programs. Go to

great living just from marketing for other people in your spare time.
7. Time Freedom. You build your business as fast or slow as you like. You can
work all day or two hours at night after you put your kids to sleep. Work one day a
week or seven. It's ALL up to you.
8. Job Security On Autopilot. Remember job security? It doesn't exist in the
world of being an employee. If it takes you three or even five years to build your
business from part time to full time at home, you're still ahead of millions of
people depending on a paycheck for all 40 to 60 years they have to be an employee.
9. Open 24 Hours in Every Country. Oh yeah, that. Your site works for you
while you sleep. So does your advertising, the articles you write, and your ezine.
Consider every little thing you do to market to be a new round the clock employee you
just hired for free. These employees will stay out on the web working for you forever.
The BIG SECRET is that the older your online business gets, the less work it takes to
make more money.
