#1: Your E-mail is Important as Your Own ID

.: Lesson #1: Register your E-mail (electronic mail).

The first internet marketing tools you'll desperately need is your e-mail. Yup, your own e-mail. E-mail is the primary tool for you, and the most wanted thing later in having your own prospect list. Register either a free account or the paid one. But if you can have your email like this [name@ your-site.com], that will be much better. It looks like a professional business, because you use your site name.

A paid e-mail account is much more secure, less spam attack (depends on your account provider), gives extra storage, plus it makes your contact information looks like a serious business. Of course, a paid service mean very serious business rite? A serious online business~~ ;-)

But, not all of us have that extra bucks in our wallet, so we can opt to use a free e-mail service. My fave? Gmail and Ymail. I use both, and created many accounts with it and use all of it ;-)

Internet Marketing: Class Introduction~

.: Assalamu'alaikum and Greetings~

Before we starts, we praise God for everything He has given us, teach us, and spare our lives. If He didn't care for us, we will never be here on earth in the first place. Thank you God, Alhamdulillah. :-)

Internet Marketing, a new world that "globally" starts in 1998. Even internet was a little baby, human has never stopped thinking how to do marketing in this digital world. Well, 1998 is the year where I first started my internet journey. Which is, having about 8 e-mails account for no reason. I remember Yahoo! is my first internet platform, and Netscape is my first surfing buddy. But that is an old story..

2010. Even until this writing time, I still have multiple e-mail accounts for myself. I learned from my experience, because one of my favourite private email receive about 20 e-mails a day. And now about 21K e-mails is waiting for me to read. How can I finish reading 20K e-mails?? :-(

Why e-mail is a good introduction for internet marketing? Because e-mail rocks! Most of internet marketers make profit from e-mails. They make their list, and start soft-selling products to their list. What kind of list? An e-mail list of course~ ;-)

Before we go to e-mails or internet marketing lessons, we must know that this class is a very boring and tiring one. I won't lie to you, or I won't bluff, because I am doing it. How come my Google Adsense only give me USD6.45 for 3 years of time of blogging?? There is something I didn't do right, I didn't get it right. And to succeed in this arena, I need to learn and adjust my strategy. Because I already get USD6.45 for 3 years, I think I can make it USD64.5 in 3 months. How?

Study + motivate + persistence. I know I can do it. If I can do it, how about you?

Some lesson snips about doing internet marketing for you~~
A Living is made by selling something that someone needs at least once a year, and a Million is made by selling something that everybody needs every day."
by ~ Thorton Wilder, American Dramatist, 1897-1975.

I already know about the advantages of doing internet marketing, and I am definitely dying to do this. I want that financial freedom, I really want that time freedom, and I really don't want to get into any rat race anymore! Do this by hook and never by crook!
