Internet marketing and online marketing or marketing online are almost interchangeable
terms. I say almost because
all online marketing is in fact internet
The problem with the difference in these three terms is perception. For
anyone who has spent a little time online when the term internet marketing is used it conjures up
thoughts of get rich schemes, traffic programs, how to market adsense, programs that automate marketing online, the
latest super duper ebook etc., and rightly so.
But marketing online is what I am going to talk about. For a new marketer the field of
internet marketing is not a good choice unless you have a great level of expertise in some marketing area, can
create software that will greatly automate some online activity etc.

tough way to get started online. To compete in the field of internet marketing you really have to work twice as
hard or more, or you need to already have an in with those who are in power.
Many other choices are better, than internet marketing, for the new marketer online. Forget
internet marketing. Find a niche, drill down into that niche and build a business in another area.
Going up against the gurus is like opening a "Mom'N'Pop" hardware store three blocks down from
one of the warehouse giants.
