Go to Guy for Internet Marketing Courses
Mark Ling hasnâ€™t always been one of the top affiliate marketers in the world, and he hasn’t always had a career teaching internet marketing courses. In 1999 when he was looking at ways to make money on line he started very simply and with his innovative approach and creative methods in the industry became the super affiliate he is today.
Mark’s first exposure to internet marketing came from a friend. This friend, by the name of Charlie had a small business selling posters online.Â Mark listened with great interest and considered the possibilities.Â This was back in 1999 and it was rather easy to make money online although not as many people made the big money you hear about today.
Markâ€™s buddy made about $50 a week by displaying a banner ad which linked to his web site.Â Mark decided to follow Charlieâ€™s marketing model and started with a web presence on Geocities site where he would also sell posters but he focused on celebrity posters from around the world.Â After building a few of these simple web sites he started to make a little bit of profit.
In these early days, Mark quickly learned how increase his profits, first with practice he learned how to build his web sites faster and secondly he learned how best to target larger markets.Â He was soon making enough money to quit his job delivering pizzas and focus on his fast growing business.
As the business grew Mark was able to hire a few friends, rent a house for his business, set up a room of 486 computers and started making more web sites.Â Mark learned 3 important concepts which helped to move his business to the top of the online industry.
1. He learned how to have his sites listed near the top of the search engine lists.
2. He learned how to get more traffic to his sites.
3. He learned the concept of replicating his more successful sites.
