What is Internet Marketing and Can You Make Money With It?

Internet marketing is one of the most popular ways of making money online, but what is it actually?

It has many different names.

Affiliate marketing, internet marketing, online marketing, and many others.

In short, it doesn’t differ much from offline marketing.

You find people who might be interested in your product or service and you promote your product and service to them in hopes of getting more customers and sales.

Simple.

Usually this requires an understanding of search engine optimization, advertising, A/B testing, the customer acquisition funnel, and much more.

How much can you make with it?

There are websites that are making a ton of money purely through affiliate/internet marketing.

However, for every website that’s making a ton, there are 99 websites that were started, but never actually made anything.

It’s quite sad really.

It takes a lot of persistence to succeed in the business and you have to be prepared to fail, fail, and fail again until you finally find a profitable campaign.

You have to be willing to learn a ton of things, to constantly test different landing pages, campaigns, promotion methods, and more, and you have to know that even if you do everything right you still might not succeed because there is a certain element of luck involved.

Fun, right?

Here are a couple bloggers that are killing it through affiliate marketing.

Keep in mind that there are more people who are making money, but who don’t have a guru blog, and that there are even more people who tried to make money online, but completely and totally failed.

Capiche?

Okay.

Here are the money makers:

Content Samurai Review

For my first post I’m going to do a quick review of Content Samurai.

It’s a Video Sales Letter creator program that’s completely cloud based and as of today it only works on Google Chrome.

The program is very easy to use and creating videos is a very quick process, but it’s not perfect.

Yet.

The app might be priced a bit too high, and while you get 23 different themes for free, and 20 free songs that are worth over $700 if you were to purchase them separately, the app itself is probably not worth it unless you create more than 5 or 6 videos a month.

Creating a video is very simple.

You write the script, edit the slides and make sure that the text looks how you want it to, pick the background music, record the audio sentence by sentence, check to see if the audio and the text are aligned, and then publish the video.

It’s all quite simple.

Creating your first video should take less than 30 minutes, and if you already have the script set then you can create one video in less than 10 minutes!Content samurai Review

My only issue with Content Samurai is that you cannot edit your voice audio in the app and you have to do it after creating the video which is harder and adds an extra step that isn’t needed.

Of course some people have great microphones and expensive studios, but if you’re operating on a bare-bones budget then you’ll have to use Audacity to edit the audio after your video is completed and then combine the audio and the video once again.

It shouldn’t be too much of a problem, but it’s an extra step that could be implemented into the app to make it better.

Now let’s talk about the pricing.

Content Samurai costs $99 per month, but you can get it at a discount from here.

That discount gets you down to $47 per month which is good, but it can still be a lot for a beginner Internet Marketer.

If you don’t have a way of making the videos you create with the program profitable then you probably shouldn’t buy it.

Otherwise you’ll just waste your time and money.

Also there’s no free trial available as of yet, but they might add it in a bit.

We’ll see.

Well that’s the end of this review. What do you personally think of Content Samurai?

Do you like it?

Do you hate it?

Is there something that I haven’t covered that you want me to cover?

Well, too bad because this is how the review is going to stay for now!
