Just 20 short years ago, the internet still had not made it to most homes or even most parts of the world. Today, it's everywhere. In 20 short years we've made all the world's information readily available.
As more people turn to the internet for research, entertainment, and just about everything in between, digital products are increasing in popularity. And, due to the economy, many people are looking to work from home or generate extra income. If you are one of those individuals, you may see the potential in writing and selling e-books. Unfortunately, if you are like many new internet workers, the entire process of writing an e-book may be too much. So, what should you do? Should you suck it up and write an e-book yourself, hire a professional ghostwriter, or buy a private label e-book with resell rights?
If you're an internet marketer...or you want to be and you've been researching your options...you may be suffering from a strange "myopia" that often inflicts people in our industry. Pointing and clicking and navigating from email to webpage to Facebook post to Tweet, gives you a warped view of reality. For example, have you noticed how people communicate differently online? It's like they become different people. Otherwise articulate people start posting things like "This is 2 Kewl" and other strange lingo.
The latest online trend is using your blog to market your products. Blogs which are also known as web logs are very popular in this day and age. You can make a blog on any particular subject that you want and then publish it for the world to read.
If you are just beginning in internet marketing, you are going to find that starting a blog is very easy to do. Anyone can sign up for a free blog, and then proceed to market basically anything that they want to. Because blogs are free to have and make, this makes blog marketing even better.
