No matter which way you go, you need to consider what’s your strength is and what appeals to you most. If you have strong background in computer engineering, you of course may consider offer your related expertise to the intended audience, which will naturally find your talents and be attracted to your offering. You need to understand the basic of internet marketing, including how to research your niche, the concept of preselling, the conversion ratios and etc. These are the rules of the game that you need to be aware of before you even consider to begin your journey of internet marketing.
I’ve been to internet marketing since 2004 and honestly, I have seen too many programs filled with hype (and of course, I have bought in quite a few of them). In general, don’t trust things that make you a millionaire overnight. Such things do not exist; if there is such a system, it would not be for sale at all. Secondly, you need to apply your own brain in whatever business venue. You need to see if something appeal to your basic skill. For example, if you can’t even figure out how to install a software program to save yourself, don’t even think you could create software programs and sell online. It’s just too much to demand yourself.
In all, focus on what you are good at and create content around that particular topic. Overtime, you will create a crowd of followers who would trust what you have to say and ultimately buy what you have to offer. Most importantly, when you offer a solution, it’s better than you have actually used or have other used the products themselves. Otherwise, people can tell that you’re just buffing for the sake of grabbing people pockets, and you will lose trust of your readers, as quickly as they click on your website. It’s that simple.
The key is to tell others what you are good at, and what you can do to help them to do the same.
