Having an internet based business is an excellent way to build multiple streams of income and everyone knows that to be really rich this is an essential element. The great thing is that this can all be done from one website.

The important point to remember when undertaking this type of venture, particularly if you are new to internet marketing is that it would be far better for you to start off with one affiliate program, learn and become an expert marketer with that before moving on to another.

The reason for following this system is that having multiple affiliate programs and trying to learn how to market all of them at once can become overwhelming and impossible to actually make a profit from them when you are still not sure of what you are doing. This is one of the major reasons why so many newbie internet marketers fail to make any money and give up before they can even begin to start earning a profit.

Promoting just one online affiliate program to the point where you are making a profit is difficult enough, even if all the programs you promote are in a single package on your website it can be a daunting task to learn the best way to market them. Internet marketing takes a great amount of time effort and money so by focusing on one program until it is in profit is a sensible way to go as this profit can then go toward funding another program.

Any business that has multiple programs and insists on new recruits joining all of them will find it very difficult to find affiliates who will pay out all of this money. Usually the new internet marketer will spend far too much money trying to promote all the different programs and wind up broke and feeling like a failure.

So what can you do if you goal is to build multiple streams of income?

Before you begin to think that this is an impossible task and want to give up let’s discuss a better method to build multiple streams of income online.

Start off your internet based business by becoming an expert affiliate in just one program. This will not only give you time to focus and learn the business but will also cost you a lot less money. As you learn to become an expert you will be able to duplicate your efforts by imparting your knowledge to your team members.

Essentially the key to building a successful internet based business with multiple streams of income depends on your expertise and ability to train the people who join your team and this is a win-win situation for all concerned.

Once you are able to do this and teach your members about the various tools available to promote their online businesses as you do with yours they will learn to trust your judgment and will be more open to buying the tools and programs that you promote.

Ultimately what is achieved with this is a circle of success for you, your sponsor your primary business and your team members which means success for each one with their own internet based multiple stream businesses.

Because there are so many fantastic success stories on the Internet today people often forget how difficult starting a home business can be. It isn’t so much the fact that it is hard to start a business online, as that it is going to be a challenge to turn it into a profitable one.

For this reason, choosing the products that you sell becomes an extremely important factor if you are to stand any chance of earning a profit with your own home business. One product that can be very profitable and allow you to make money fairly quickly on the Internet is – “information”.

People go onto the Internet every day to access information, and there certainly is a market for you to earn money selling it. Information products that people are willing to pay for include ebooks, reports, software, and subscriptions for membership programs that provide tuition or products (or both) on an ongoing basis.

The key to making money with information products is to find products that are already set up for you to sell. Two ways that make it easier for you to do this are affiliate marketing and private label rights.

For example there is an affiliate program known as Clickbank where you can start your own home business selling ebooks in just a matter of minutes. These books provide information in various categories and are already set up for you to sell and earn profits from.

Private label rights are products that you can market as your own, or you can even alter them to make them unique. You own the rights to these products and can do anything you choose with them. They offer a great way for you to make money online because you get to keep 100% of the profits.

There are many private label right memberships you can join where they’ll provide a new set of products for you every month. They also provide training where you can learn how to modify and repackage the information to create unique products of your own often simply by making a few minor alterations to the original products.

They will also teach you how to get your products on the Internet, how to process payments, how to deliver the products instantly, and so on. You really can make a lot of money selling information products when you work with private label rights products.

Some of the advantages of selling information products as a home business include low overheads on your part, providing instant access to your customers, earning high profits, creating repeat customers, and having a business that is open 24 hours a day.

These are several of the reasons why information products make a great home business. Now it is up to you to take this information and turn it into a profitable business of your own.

If you have only recently developed a website and want to earn an income as an internet marketer, then your first task will be to begin building an emailing list.

The best method for doing this would be by utilizing both your website and a blog, but unless you become known as an expert in your chosen niche, getting people to subscribe to your list will not serve you well unless you can build a relationship with these subscribers and get them to feel that they can trust you and the advice you give to them.

So how will you do this, especially if you are new to internet marketing and don’t feel that you have the necessary expertise?

One way would be to preload your auto-responder with a selection of pre-written emails that have been written by an expert, or alternatively you could preload a series of PLR articles or reports to send out to your subscribers. Just keep in mind that if this is the method you decide to use, you must choose very high quality product to send out to your emailing list. By doing this you will still be offering your readers valuable information that pertains to their subject of interest, and you will not have to write it yourself.

After this system is set up in your auto-responder, it will automatically send out to your subscriber the series of preloaded newsletters at pre-determined intervals and if they are well written and conform to your niche subject and your primary product on offer, then you will no doubt manage to generate some sales this way.

There are a couple of disadvantages to this method that we need to address here that are quite easy to correct.

•    Always modify the PLR letters or articles that you are sending out to your subscribers as chances are that if you don’t do this they will read the same thing somewhere else, which will immediately reduce the belief in your expertise as an authority in your niche subject.

•    b. The information you are sending out is not always the most up to date, so it is essential that you update it on a fairly regular basis or you run the risk of it becoming stale. Once this happens people will stop reading what you send out to them. Keep in mind that nothing is ever completely automated; there are always little things that one needs to tweak.

This does not mean that you should not use PLR material at all, only that you need to review it a few times during the year and update it as you go along.

If you outsource the pre-written newsletters then it is always a good idea to modify them a little so that they are stamped with your own unique personality.

As an internet marketer you will want to promote your products or services to your subscribers or keep them informed of any changes taking place that could affect their internet based businesses, and a great way to do this is by utilizing the “broadcast” feature that is offered by your auto-responder. This also gives you an added advantage of adding more spontaneity to your email service and giving you the opportunity to build a better relationship with your readers.

Your email subscribers list is one of the most valuable assets to your internet business as you have a list of people to whom you can sell your products or services over and over again, provided you look after them and remember that they are real people and always treat them with respect.
