Money-Making Digital Products
Have you found your Internet marketing niche?
There are plenty of opportunities for making money on the Internet. You can start a Internet marketing career as something on the side, or you can make it your full time job. It just depends on how much time you want to commit to earning money in your Internet marketing career. Many people are already making money in different amounts from their Internet marketing careers, but I am not going to say to you that it is easy. Sitting at your computer and writing articles may be easy, and publishing those articles may also be easy, but those simple acts are not what make you money on the Internet.
In order to earn a living from your Internet activities, whether you are writing and publishing articles, blogging, creating websites and marketing by the content, banners and links (mostly from affiliate programs), or composing emails to be sent to a list of subscribers (if you have one of those), you must be able to compete with the field. The field in this case is the community of Internet marketers which runs in the millions of persons and other entities.
This is the challenge most Internet marketers face when they are first starting out. The successful ones learn how to compete and carve a "niche" out for themselves to generate a small income in the beginning and eventually make decent money by staying the course and building up their business. Some others don't make it. If you are really serious about marketing on the Internet, you're going to need a little help from different sources. The following video provides information about one of those sources. Take a look!

Digital Marketing as described by Wikipedia:
"Digital Marketing is the promoting of brands using all forms of digital advertising channels to reach consumers. This now includes Television, Radio, Internet, mobile, social media marketing and any other form of digital media.
Whilst digital marketing does include many of the techniques and practices contained within the category of Internet Marketing, it extends beyond this by including other channels with which to reach people that do not require the use of the Internet. As a result of this non-reliance on the Internet, the field of digital marketing includes a whole host of elements such as mobile phones, sms/mms, display / banner ads and digital outdoor.
Previously seen as a stand-alone service in its own right, it is frequently being seen as a domain that can and does cover most, if not all, of the more traditional marketing areas such as Direct Marketing by providing the same method of communicating with an audience but in a digital fashion. Digital is now being broadened to support the "servicing" and "engagement" of customers."

Utilizing online distribution methods to promote products is known as digital marketing. This approach is both time saving and cost effective. Digital marketing is done through items such as cell phones, SMS, MMS, instant messaging, websites, emails, banner advertisement and digital billboards. Digital marketing involves some of the techniques of direct marketing and Internet marketing. In digital marketing, traditional methods of promotions are executed digitally. It involves marketing in two forms, pull and push.
Pull digital marketing requires the user to pull or extract the content directly. The customer has to approach the promotional matter and see the matter by himself. Examples are websites, forums and web logs. All these require clicking on a URL in order to view the content. The content that is being displayed doesn’t have to follow any guidelines.
Effort is required to only display the content on the website or forum and there is no additional cost of sending the information to the customer, but the customer has to make the extra effort of reaching the content .The customer doesn’t have to opt-in for such kind of promotion and one message is being viewed by all and it cannot be personalized. Customers who see the content cannot be traced, although the click through rate can be considered to provide details about the number of clicks a message received. This is be done by enabling click though tracking devices during a given campaign, which records the information.
Push digital marketing technologies requires effort of both the marketer and the customer. The marketer has to push or send the content to the customer and the customer has to make the effort of receiving it. This is a very effective kind of marketing and the investments surely earn a big return as it creates brand recognition.
SMS, MMS, emails, RSS and podcasting are examples of push digital marketing. Since the content is sent to individuals, it can be personalized according to the intended recipient. Whether the message has been opened and viewed by the customer or deleted, it can be tracked and reported. Information related to the customer such as name and geographical location could be traced.
However, when sending the kind of messages mentioned above, certain criteria should be met as the SMS and emails sent are monitored. If the marketer doesn’t make sure to follow established rules and methods, there is a possibility of messages getting rejected and blocked before they reach the targeted audience and therefore is considered to be spam.
Bigger consequences involve marketers getting blacklisted temporarily or even permanently. The number would be blocked and they won’t be able to send any messages at all. Messages sent to RSS feeders require a mechanism with an application to reach, when sent by an email marketing system.
Both forms of digital marketing should be used in conjunction with each other in order to achieve positive results. A smart marketer sends out emails along with SMS and uses multiple channels to market his products. The type of messages being sent should also be different from one another. They should not only be text, but animations, audios and videos.
There is a possibility of using pull and push method technologies simultaneously; like the email sent to a potential customer can have a URL or a banner ad which, when clicked, initiates a download of the information requested. If there is an enormous group of people to be reached via email messaging, email service providers can be hired to send loads of emails to customers on behalf of the marketer and they take steps so that the messages are not considered as spam.
Although much of the marketing is opt-in, federal laws such as the CAN SPAM Act, have been passed to protect customers from unscrupulous marketers who would go to any lengths to promote their products; or hackers, or spammers with bad intent; For example, harming your computer or installing adware or spyware on it.
Digital marketing, like any other marketing method could lead to very successful campaigns or could be a huge bust when used incorrectly or inappropriately. The objective is to adhere to best practices, be diligent in your marketing, and treat your customers and consumers in general fairly and in a manner that you would like to be treated.

A Changing Business Landscape
No matter what kind of business you operate and irrespective of whether that business is primarily focused on offline or online operations, there is one truth about running a business that none of us can avoid. This is the fact that business never stands still, it is something that is constantly changing and developing with something new happening almost every day.
If you are an online business owner or internet marketer, this will apply to you just as much as it applies to anyone else. It does not really matter how you make your money, whether you are selling products, services or even making money by featuring paid advertising on your website, the same proviso still applies. Whatever specific variation of the online money making ‘game’ you are playing, the rules of the game never stand still.
This by definition means that you have to be adaptable, flexible and willing to change as and when necessary in order to be a long-term competitive player. So, let me play my cards on the table here because there is no point in pretending or beating about the bush. Times are very hard, and there is no reason to assume or imagine that they are going to get better any time soon. The world as a whole has undergone some very traumatic changes over the last year or two, and the financial situation in most developed Western countries is almost unremittingly grim.
These changes inevitably bring new challenges with them, and it is a fact that if you are running your own online business, you need to rise and adapt to these new challenges. The bottom line is, what was working even as recently as a year ago is probably not going to work anywhere near as well now, and you can almost guarantee that yesterday’s methods and tactics are going to become increasingly ineffective over the next few years.
On the other hand, the good news is that there is still plenty of money to be earned and that if you do adapt and develop your business to match the requirements of this new era, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever why you can’t be really successful and profitable. But the bottom line is, you have to change your way of thinking and the way you approach and transact business probably needs to be modified.
