Internet Marketing Tips - Playing With House Money

Let me start off by saying that I know it's hard to invest anything into your business when you're first starting out...
especially if you're out of work and broke.
However, as you begin to see some success, it's really to your benefit to take some of your profits and put them back into your business in order to help it grow.
This article is going to give you a very brief blueprint to do just that.
You can revise this any which way you like.
Just as long as you get the general idea.
Let's say you're first starting out and you don't have a pot to spit in.
Okay, so you get some free web hosting, put up a small page with a review of an affiliate product you're promoting and then go and do some free advertising...
starting with article marketing.
You have no money but you have time.
So you write tons of articles.
You submit them to directories and get people to your site.
You make a few sales.
Okay, now it's time to reinvest your money.
The next step is to get a domain and professional hosting.
Your page will look better, you'll have more credibility and ultimately you'll make more sales.
You've only spent about $8 on the domain for the year and about $5 a month for the hosting.
Certainly by now you can afford that.
As you make more sales, the next thing you do is invest $20 a month into a good autoresponder.
Now, you can give away a free report to get people to opt into your newsletter.
You may not make the sales right away, but for those who don't buy, you haven't lost them.
You now have a list that you're building.
If you treat this list right, which takes no money at all..
just a good followup series...
you'll make plenty more sales.
Now you can start to invest some of that money into paid advertising such as Adwords.
You can start small.
Even a few dollars a day will get you plenty of traffic.
Then, as you make more sales, you can increase your AdWords expense.
From there you can take out solo ads and other forms of paid advertising.
Maybe you have enough money now to get some pro tools like Photoshop and Camtasia.
The more you invest into your business, the more you're going to get out of it.
And the great thing is, you're playing with house money if you look at it this way...
If you hadn't earned it in the first place, you wouldn't have it to spend.
So spending it is no different than not having earned it, except you're getting something in return that is far more valuable than the money itself.
If you think I'm kidding, ask Donald Trump.
How do you think HE makes all his money? By reinvesting into your business you end up growing your business...
eventually to the point where you're actually quite successful.
And I am speaking from experience.
To YOUR Success, Steven Wagenheim
