Online Marketing Ideas for Home Business

I have been in the online marketing game for 10 years now, and have seen many things change along the way.

I have been a full-time online marketer for close to 8 years now, and also have tried many different means of doing business, which is exactly what I wanted to speak to you about in this post today. 

I am more than aware of all the noise that goes on in this space online, and the amount of programs, product, services, and people that can easily dictate any little decision we make. When you are sure which path to take in pursuit of online marketing, it can be hard to stay firm where you are and not get distraction by any little thing that comes along.

Knowing what’s out there ahead of time can help you make a more accurate and informed decision with what you want to do. So without further ado, here is a basic outline of the different types of marketing online. They basically fall into the categories of the following, and you can create a business with any:

  • Social Media Marketing
  • Local Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Network Marketing/MLM
  • Video Marketing
  • Email Marketing

Now, these are only the types of marketing you can use to set a foundation to earn an income. The exact methods in which you do this more or less can all be classified as a form of marketing also, which is why you hear them referred to as online or internet marketing.

This can all run together eventually, but basically are the same in the sense that they all pertain to marketing online to make money through your own home business.

I plan to go into much deeper detail about each of these types of marketing, but for now I don’t want to overcomplicate things and confuse people.

Now that you know what these techniques are, I want to discuss the top 3 that I use to dominate everything I market online regardless of whether it’s an affiliate or network marketing offer.

#1. Blogging

Blogging may not be too sexy because you need to create content around the topic of the product that you are offering. The goal is to provide value in advance and paint a picture to your prospects that helps them know the benefits and what the product would do for them.

This technique can definitely take longer to apply than some of the others but can be more than worth it in the end as you can continuously have targeted traffic coming to your blog posts time and time again, which means you only invested time to get them there.
