For most people, internet marketing is a money making industry. In reality, internet
marketing is about developing oneself on a regular basis. If you are involved in
internet marketing, you will have to pay attention to some of the intermediate
strategies that are being used - especially if you are a beginner.

I'd like to just share a few intermediate to advanced strategies you can use in
order to enhance your internet marketing efforts, whether you are selling internet
marketing itself or not. Hopefully, you can leverage internet marketing to enhance
your income in the shortest span of time.

Strategy #1 - Maximizing Your Productivity
Many internet marketers go solo on this. I would say that in order for you to create
the most amount of leverage, you will have to master your productivity. It's
important for you to find outsourced talent. Places such as may prove to
become too expensive, so it's more viable to look to two particular sources that I
find much cheaper and just as reliable. First, you should seek out specific talent
forums. If you need a programmer, go to programmer forums. If you need an affiliate
manager, go to affiliate forums. If you need a designer, then design forums are
probably a better bet. The second is to look for a local university and seek out
those within the talent space you need to hire. Bright, young individuals might
actually have something to prove and do a really good job!

Don't just outsource! Manage your talent, help them to grow and train them up to
become better. Point them to the right resources and you'll realize that they will
be more willing to assist you in doing even bigger projects online.

Strategy #2 - Automated traffic mechanisms
If you have not got a series of automated traffic, you will probably find that it is
difficult to generate traffic. Each of my sites is typically optimized on the search
engines. If you want to learn more about Search Engine Optimization, there are
plenty of courses that are available online, not to mention some really good SEO

On the forums at, there are some 103
ideas on generating traffic. You just need to go in there and identify the 5 best
ways for you to do this, then keep at it for a while.

Strategy #3 - Focus on a the 4-hour Work Week!
If you haven't already, you should pick up a copy of Timothy Ferriss' "4-Hour
work week". He mentions two things that struck me right from the start. For
instance, what are the 20% of the things that create for you 80% of the results? And
what are 20% of the things that you do that create 80% of your problems? If you
focus on answering these, you should be more effective in understanding your
productivity cycle and move closer toward overall business improvement!
