Is Internet Marketing dead from all the hype and competition online? As many people might think this, the opposite is actually true.

The Internet is growing and becoming much more resourceful each year.  Millions of peoples are now coming online to take educational classes, chat with old friends, play online games, or pay their bills.  In addition, you also have social sites where millions of people flock to discuss specific subjects such as American idol, Nascar, or Golf.  With this in mind, it is clear to see that Internet Marketing is not irrelevant and is becoming more relevant and a possible business platform for someone seeking to escape the rat race.

But there is a “catch”, and that is over 80% of people never get a check of over $100, 15% get the occasional check and the remaining 5%; or the ones who are willing to treat it as a real business, are the ones who get the monthly checks.

Education is Key?

There’s literally dozens of books advertised online on websites that make claims of easy earnings.  Most of the programs out there though are what they call “rehashed stuff” meaning someone gets resell rights of other people’s ideas and market them under their own name, or sum up another programs ideas and give it a new name.  This is common , but a factor to keep note of.

Despite all books and resources, what internet marketing and making money online boils down to is how to implement the knowhow.  No books nor any marketing courses can come anywhere close to pure practical experience.  This is the same with any business venture; whether online or offline.

What’s the Verdict?

If you want to make money online learning how to market is the first step.  The key is planning and setting up basic strategies that can aim at paid or free traffic, and executing these strategies successfully.  The activities with the highest leverage should be key also to anyone looking to go from “0 to 60” online, and these include keyword research, finding profitable markets and partners, and getting information on affiliate networks, guides and a variety of valuable resources. 

By treating internet marketing like a real business, applying a business-like mindset to your goals, results, and activities, things will eventually begin to snowball and you will naturally come up with better ideas, resources, and even products that can lead to greater success.

I think that many people come into IM with the idea that they will get rich overnight and when that doesn't happen they drop out. I tend to be a bit like a bulldog, once I get my teeth into something I hate to admit defeat so will keep at it until.....

Having an online business is not an overnight success. It takes time. What you need is your brain and attitude to succeed online. If a certain ad or a profess guru tells you that you can earn  hundreds or thousands of money in an easy way then think twice.

Most of the people is looking for immediate success and not the real success
The revenue and only can foreseen in short term
We need to build have forecast for long term to enable to survive longer
Be patient....that the point....

My experience tells me that if you want good results in internet marketing, especially if you are marketing products and services, market them to western audiences. People in less-fortunate countries like the Philippines don't want to spend online unless they will earn in return more than the amount they have put online. They would rather buy goods in nearby groceries than to buy online. But if promise them they will earn money and if you can show them "proof of income" they will even take out a loan so they can buy online or invest online.

^ I agree.  mas magandang i market ang products globally kaysa sa pinas lang ( kung pinoy ).  dapat nga lang na yung product or service mo ay akma din para sa ibang bansa.

Internet Marketing involves websites which contains information and reviews about the product. If Internet Marketing will come into its end then it also means that the internet will lose it purpose.

I think IM will change but not go away, More and more people are using the internet and this will lead to a more firm and diversified business. As you can see people in 3rd world countries are starting to trust in buying online and will only grow as time goes by.

It's not just the trust but the means of purchasing online products. I am so happy when they allowed us international users to use the paypal processor.

Internet marketing is very much alive. More and more companies are gaining an online presence and marketing on the Internet is important to get your site noticed above the competition online. Make sure that there are only an online presence, but a marketing plan for the website as well.

I find the premise "Internet marketing is over" not acceptable and really unfair to me. You know, I am just starting out in Internet Marketing.  :D
