More than most other online businesses, a home based Internet marketing business requires experience and training. There are some online home businesses, such as medical transcription, data entry, word processing and virtual call centers that you can start with some very basic skills and a short bit of initial training. A home based Internet marketing business is not one of these. While it’s not essential that you have a four year degree in marketing to succeed you must have some experience in marketing yours or others firm and should have taken some classes in marketing essentials.

If you’ve been a marketing specialist for another firm or acted in a management capacity that required you to practice some marketing job tasks, then you probably have a good feel for what marketing is all about. Now you just need some classes. For that you can go online if you prefer that to classroom learning. Let’s take a look at some of the courses that will train you for a home based Internet marketing business.

One 55 hour course, for example, is $99 at one online training facility we found. Courses include tips on advertising on the Web, building the client’s marketing strategy, developing your e-business, customer service, taking online payments, starting your home based Internet marketing business, e-commerce influences and strategies, writing and designing great applications, keeping business costs to a minimum for yourself as well as your client, managing and marketing your own e-business, the ins and outs of data mining and real time, as well as planning client resources.

The four hour course about Internet advertising is the kick off course for your home based Internet marketing business training. Here you’ll get a good overview of the various advertising options for your client when he or she markets on the Internet. The course objectives are to train you to promote your clients’ business on the Web, to plan the firm’s advertising campaign, to find your own customers, to compare the pros and cons of the various forms of advertising for your clients and to learn where Internet advertising is headed.

Building marketing strategy is one of the more essential courses for your home based Internet marketing business. In this online class you’ll learn a complex overview of the various marketing tools and options for your clients’ online business as well as your own. You’ll learn about outside promotion and data mining. Specific training includes identification of effective promotion in a face to face environment and a description of the relationship between e-commerce and public relations. In the five hour course you’ll also find out what niche marketing is all about and how it can help your client and your own home based Internet marketing business.

The E-business development course gets down to the basics. You’ll learn what a virtual corporation is, what business and marketing tasks you and your clients can and should outsource, understand partnership pros and cons, and look at the problems that can occur in an online business.
