Many will say to you that an eBook is a great way to learn online. However, I believe that internet marketing eBooks are a mistake. You will learn here the reason, and what is the right option.
Choose a more specific topic
The more targeted an eBook is, the more helpful and informative it will be. Internet marketing is an extremely wide topic, so it’s extremely difficult to find anything helpful. Internet marketing eBooks mainly offer get rich quick guides, and other sort of guides to make money online.
If you really want to learn about online marketing, the best way is to focus on online marketing method separately. An eBook (or a course) about a specific online marketing topic gives you much more than a general internet marketing eBook.
However, if you are new to online marketing, you probably don’t know what methods to read about. I’m going to list here all the major online marketing methods for you to read about, and a little description for each one.
1. Article marketing
Learn how to use the power of article writing to get visitors to your website. Create articles that attract visitors, and get you a top place in the search results.
Learn how to use PPC services (like Google AdWords) to get visitors fast. Choose a keyword, write an ad, set a budget, create a landing page, and wait for the visitors.
3. Email marketing
Learn how to get emails of targeted clients (without spamming!), and how to use your list of emails to promote your website.
4. Forum marketing
Learn how to use online forums to get targeted clients without getting banned.
5. Social media
Learn how to use Facebook, twitter, Google+, and all other social media websites to promote your website.
eBooks VS online courses
An even better solution is an online course about a specific marketing method. With online courses you get not only the information, but also advanced marketing tools, and an exclusive forum. You can get much more from a course than from a simple eBook.
So, is an internet marketing eBook really a waste of time? If it’s on general online marketing, then yes. However, if you are looking for a more targeted eBook, then it can be very helpful to you. Although, an even more helpful solution is an online course. No matter what you choose, I only wish you good luck.
Bonus: There is something better than online marketing courses!
