As an online Internet Marketer, there are several tools and skills you need to have at your disposal, and you must be able to use them efficiently in order to succeed.
This includes subscriptions to the Social Media Networks, so that you can get the word out there that you now have an online presence, and you are building a successful and long-term business.
You will also have to sign-up to other networks so that you can access digital and other products that will take your business to the next level.
From my experience, approximately 98% of these sign-ups are free. The other 2% are optional subscriptions which you do not necessarily have to subscribe to unless you absolutely want to right now.
My recommendation would be to build your business with the free subscriptions first, start making some money, and if you choose to reinvest some of it into the business to further develop it, then do just that.
When I started Internet Marketing, all I had was an email address, so I had to sign up for everything at the beginning, including FaceBook.
Right now you can go ahead and sign up for any of these freebies that you are not currently associated with. These will be essential for operating a successful online Internet Marketing business, and you will be all set when it’s time to make them work for you.
