Welcome to the Newbie Internet Marketing Haven
This newbie internet marketing haven provides is a primer on internet marketing for new business owners. Beginners should have and understand the basics of internet business building before they can make money online.
Why am I writing this?
Simple. Many readers and personal contacts are new to internet marketing and have asked for help learning to make money with an online business. Some have no money, some have some money and a few have a lot of money.
Businesses will not make any money if they do not spend any money. And you will not make any money on an internet business if you do not spend any money.
Yet, scam after internet scam ask you to join their program for free and you will make money.
Seems like everyone is promoting some sort of scam. I opened my email account the other morning and found the following subject lines within the first 25 emails!

** Get My Entire Marketing System Completely Free! Today Only! **

** Get My Marketing System + 7 Million Leads Completely Free! **
Just based on the subject lines alone, these look like scams.
Furthermore, I have a degree in Accounting and a Masters of Business Administration degree. So I must have missed the day they taught how businesses make money for free.
There must be a new economic theory that applies only to the internet. As a result, you can make millions for free. And if you are really lucky, you can do it in 30 days. And if you are even luckier, you can do it in a week.
I have been marketing on the internet almost 20 years. My middle name must be “Unlucky.” Consequently, I am still working on my first million!
As I have stated in previous articles, successful businesses generally have a business plan including a budget. I had a business plan for my tax preparation business in the 1990’s. The plan included a budget because I needed to pay for tax preparation software, office supplies and advertising among other things. I exchanged my tax services for fees from customers. Because this is just basic economic theory providing something of value to fulfill a demand in exchange for a price.
Simple fact! To make money, businesses spend money. And this applies to online businesses as well. To test this fact, go to Amazon.com and see if they will give you something for free.
No one makes money for free online. Otherwise, everyone would.
Please do not get me wrong. Since businesses do make promotional offers as a method of generating new business. Internet marketers also offer free or low cost products with the intent to “upsell” buyers with additional or more expensive offers. But, the bottom line is they will not make money giving away free stuff if buyers have the mindset of not spending money.
If you are going to start an internet business, then treat it like a business. Make a plan and work the plan. Also, invest in your business.
