In order to get your online home business off the ground fast, there are some basic facts to consider. Even though you hear about all the online entrepreneurs who make millions, they all faced the same hurdles when they started.

The very first fact is that, just like in any off-line business, you cannot make a fortune overnight on internet marketing. Successful internet marketers have spent years learning and perfecting their marketing strategies. They first had to learn everything they could about their chosen business opportunity. They would start out by applying different existing strategies. Then, after rigorous testing over a considerable period of time, they would improve on the methods that gave the best results. Finally, many will formulate their own marketing strategies based on their findings.

Therefore, although internet marketing offers a lucrative business opportunity for everyone, it is important to be aware that it takes both time and effort to earn millions of dollars through internet marketing. If you are prepared to put some money, much time, and effort into your online business, you will be able to earn thousands of dollars on internet marketing revenues.

Secondly, you will always encounter lots of competition. There are many out there who will use you for their advantage. There is a fine line between cyber friendship and competition. You must use wisdom when joining up in joint ventures and affiliate marketing. There are those who are sincere and work hand in hand with other internet marketers. However, you must beware of the hungry predator types, who may turn your generosity to their own advantage to earn more money.

Lastly, getting potential clients is the hardest part of internet marketing career. Remember that the success of your internet marketing business will depend on how you will attract potential clients coming from the majority of traffic around the internet. Even if you have a well-designed website with useful services such as information catalogs and shopping carts, without good web traffic your Internet marketing business cannot be profitable.

Consequently, the success of your internet marketing career depends on how you build your clientele base. Your client list is the lifeline that will keep your marketing career alive. Without them, the Internet marketing industry will remain but a dream.
If you want to attract potential clients and convert them into loyal product evangelizers, you must learn the different methods of internet marketing promotion and advertising. Promoting and advertising your internet marketing is crucial to your website and your career. Through these strategies, you will be able to attract motivated people who are willing to purchase your products and services. By offering quality advice and information, you will keep them coming back and eventually buy your products or services.

Promotion and advertising will help you get the targeted traffic that you want at the outset of your internet marketing career. In fact, the cost of promoting and advertising your site on the Internet is not as expensive as advertising in the off-line world. Even with a small marketing budget, you can still promote and advertise your site using various off-line alternatives and low-cost promotional methods.

The characteristics of a good Internet marketing promotion and advertising are:

• Stick with it. Do not discard any one advertising medium after only one try. Find different ways to use it for several times. You may use a similar approach on each advertising tool and create customer familiarity with the advertising tool as well as the product or service you are advertising. Get ideas from, and incorporate examples of, several successful promotions and advertisements, such as Energizer batteries and others.

• Variety is crucial. Effective internet marketing promotion and advertising is obtained by trying different variations. Do not just stick with a single ad format. Test it by changing the color, text, and the message of your advertisements; but do not alter its feature character.

Always be willing to explore new options. If you think new ideas will help you promote and advertise your internet marketing business effectively, do it. The more you broaden your promotion and advertising efforts, the more you will succeed in making your internet marketing business a success.
