And you can do that by reading on the following topics from the internet or any books on the subject. Some of the books or ebooks can be purchased inexpensively from amazon.com, downloaded into kindle on pc tablet or ipad for reading.
Some of the topics among others, are as follows:

• Domain name
• Hosting companies
You also have to listen to youtube videos on the topics and see illustrations of how the things are done. You might also choose to undertake training with experienced marketers like Rosalind Gardiner, and others.

In addition to the above topics, there are also a host of terms you need to know and understand, namely
• Email list
• Opt in page
• Reviewing products
• Search engine optimisation
• Social media
• Warrior forum
• Keyword tool/keyword phrase
• Google Adword/

As you read, pick ideas from what you are reading to put into practice when you are ready. After reading or studying to understand the above, you decide to undertake internet/affiliate marketing by deciding to invest in building a website or a niche site on your chosen subject and to try your hands at it.
Ask yourself the following:
1) What kind of person will it cater to?
2) Will your site solve problems better other sites on the same subject?
3) What makes your site unique?
A successful site meets the needs of its customers
Choosing a niche• Niche is the topic or subject that the website would be about. For example you may have a hobby like gardening which you would like to teach others about. your website must therefore be about gardening and anything concerning gardening like tools used, types of flowers etc. Internet marketing is very competitive as there millions of people all over the world trying to do the same thing. The niche you choose should be something that you are very interested in and knowledgeable about so that teaching others is not difficult for you to do.
• That’s not the only way to get information from online sources, however.
• You could also take a completely new but trending topic and write on it for the information of others.
Internet marketing also brings out the creativity in you. You may be an author, writer, blogger, coach or trainer without your knowledge. We all have hidden ideas and talents waiting to be tapped.
Related to your niche is what is known as the domain name of your site. Domain names can be likened to the name of a company and on the internet they are the web addresses used in hosting websites. e.g. genuineworkfromhome.com and often ends in extensions like .com, .net, .org, .info, biz, and more. Although there are numerous extensions available, .com is still the most popular. You need to research thoroughly for a domain before venturing into registering it. It must be memorable and unique and related to what you do on your site.
Your customer will type your domain name into their browser to be directed to your site. Usually you take your domain name to domain registers like godaddy.com. namecheap.com, hostgator.com, bluehost, ipage etc. and type in your chosen domain name. They’ll then run a search to see if that name is available or has been chosen by someone already. The better registrars will also provide name suggestions based on what you have chosen so that even if what you chose has been taken you’ll get others similar to it.
