Welcome To Netpreneur Now
This site, in it’s various forms, has been online since the early 2000s. A lot has changed. There was a boom, of sorts, with people running all sorts of home business on the Internet throughout the latter part of the decade, but this appears to have slowed now. Partly because of unrealistic “get rich quick” type schemes, partly because of the economic downturn (which perhaps you’d think would encourage people to start, not leave), and partly because of negative connotations.
This is a shame. I’m rebooting this website because I believe there is still plenty of room for people to enter this business. Forget making millions overnight, and forget spamming and scamming, the core principles of Internet Marketing still stand.
You can view the “old” Netpreneur Now here. Please remember many links from there will no longer work, but it will stay live while I move anything worth saving, here.
Let’s start at the beginning…
My definition of Internet Marketing is simple. It is “Marketing”, i.e. advertising and promoting, on the Internet…
The Internet is a strange place. For one it’s a great leveler. Anyone can launch a website. There’s an incredibly low barrier of entry to launch a website, and with it a business.
Give your website some way of generating income and get people to visit it and that’s the bare bones of the system!
Of course that just skims over the surface, but I’ll cover much of this in more depth over the many blog posts to follow.
Extra cash? Your own business? A website, running on Autopilot? No need to handle stock? Do something you love?
These are the kinds of buzzwords that used to give this industry a bad name, but I’ve put them there because those – at least – are true. As I said, the entry barrier in cost and time is very low, and all the information you need is not “secret” or hidden away. You’ll find hyperbole and obfuscation along the way, but smash through that bull**** and I think you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised!
For now this is a “bare bones” site that is going to grow pretty quick. I’ve done it before, I know what to do. And along the way I’ll show you, too. I’ve literally got this far (minus the archive link) with a few button presses and a bit of prose here and there. It will get better, and I want you along with me on the ride.
