I’ve been marketing online for over 5 years now.
The other day, somebody mentioned something related to marketing that I really wasn’t familiar with. I never used it and son of a gun, it hasn’t prevented me from earning a living online.
Imagine that…something that I don’t know and I still pocketed over $122,000 online last year.
Who’d a thunk it?
The point is, you don’t have to know everything in order to earn an income on the Internet. As a matter of fact, you can earn a living online with just a few promotional methods.
For example, you could earn a living, albeit not a huge living, by simply doing some bum marketing.
Okay, you’re probably scratching your head saying to yourself, “What’s bum marketing?” Well, it’s not the marketing of bums and it has nothing to do with bums doing marketing.
Actually, bum marketing is a phrase used to refer to a method of advertising that is so simple and so cheap that a bum in the street could use it to make money online.
The basic premise of bum marketing is you write articles, submit them to directories and in your resource box point readers to your blog where you promote a product that relates to the article you wrote. The method is totally free because article submission is free and you can get a blog with Blogger or WordPress for free as well.
The key to bum marketing is to write good articles with a strong call to action in your resource box. If you can do that, and write up a good review of the product you’re selling, you can make quite a few sales from this method.
It does take some time to write articles and you do have to write quite a few to see any significant amount of traffic, but it’s worth it once you get a good number of articles out there.
My point is, just by using this one method, you can make money. You don’t have to learn about Adwords or product creation or anything complicated. A few simple steps can earn you a nice income if you put the time in.
So don’t try to learn it all. Even I don’t know everything that’s out there. And it hasn’t hurt my bottom line one bit.
