Internet marketing or online marketing is an effort to communicate a message or messages about your company, your products or your services to potential customers online with the ultimate outcome – sales of your product.
Thousands of people join the online bandwagon but many fail to make a go of it and fail to make sales. Eventually they give up. As a matter of fact, 97% of people fail (I am not talking about already established offline businesses with mega dollar to spend on advertising).
The main reason why people don’t succeed, particularly the people who start an online business from home to improve their incomes, is because even today they believe that internet is the magical way of getting rich quickly and without much effort.
Well, nothing can be further from the truth. Internet marketing is hard work and it requires dedication and perseverance. But, if you succeed to overcome the barriers and the learning curves, the success comes in bounds and leaps.
Overtime I came to follow the teachings of many internet marketing experts. Some I follow just for inspiration, others I followed practically, by enrolling in their courses.
As I learned from these experts I collected some of their wisdom and I share them here with you in a form of internet marketing quotes. These are my ten favorite internet marketing quotes. Hope you’ll find inspiration in them as well.
