Tool#2. If you are short on dough and cannot afford Windows Office, you can get OpenOffice which is free and completely legal (it is an open source project).

Throughout The Big Internet Marketing Game you will be informed of the free tools that are available. Feel free to send me a message if you have resources you would like to share.
You can go around the gameboard and not follow any specific order as everyone is not at the same level and do not have the same needs.
At the same time, if you are brand new to internet marketing and doing business online, it would make sense to follow the board on the homepage. Each page ends with a link to the homepage.

Not long ago, I was beginning in the internet marketing business and I wished I had found a site that offers all that is going to be offered on “TheBigInternetMarketingGame.com site.
I do not plan on talking down any internet marketing products as the internet marketing group is a rather small family. You already know by now that there are a lot of scams on the internet and I know too as I have wasted many of my hard earned dollars in useless products. In retrospect, I now realize that the only good thing about these products was the Sales letter.
Why a board game, Nathalie?
When I was young and even since I became a mother, playing board games never really interested me. After all, once the game is over, you just fold the board and move along.
With the internet marketing game, you get a real chance of playing and winning for real money. The internet allows online marketers to make money and help people from the first week That is a fun game!
The other beautiful thing about the internet is that you have the ability to reach so many people at once. Its power also resides in the fact that once you set your product or your information, it is available day and night to everyone.
I do medical missions in third world countries and I can attend sometimes over 100 people in one day. It can be hard to repeat the same thing 100 times and give your 100%. With internet marketing, you set it once, adjust it and people get to benefit from it over and over. Everybody wins!
By sticking to The Big Internet Marketing Game, you can avoid many mistakes and time wasting. You will get valuable information and tools to get your internet marketing business up and running.
Signing-up to our newsletter will help you stay on track with our step-by-step process. Actually, by following our easy steps, you will have your our website up and running in less than one week!
YOU HAVE TO COMMIT TO GOING AROUND THE BOARD AT LEAST ONCE AND IMPLEMENT WHAT YOU LEARN. YOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO JUMP INTO SHINIER PRODUCTS PROMISING YOU THE WORLD BUT MOST BEGINNERS FAIL BECAUSE THEY DO NOT COMMIT TO ONE METHOD OR GIVE UP TOO SOON.
You can download an image of The Big Internet Marketing Game board here and post it in front of you and check the squares as you finish them.
This website is a work in progress. Please feel free to send me details of what you need or want to hear about and I will add it to the site.
Why 3D cliparts all over Nathalie? Although they repeat at internet marketing conferences and webinars that you should treat your internet marketing venture as a business, you should have fun doing it as life is only as much fun as you make it!
We are at the dawn of exciting times and the internet is definitely here to stay and is expected to grow exponentially in the near future. If you are interested in making money and building assets that have the potential to bring you money for years to come then you need to be on the web.
Everyone has to start somewhere. Having a step-by-step plan is also a sure way to attain your goal.

Every page will end in a specific call to action for you. By taking action, you will be able to follow through and get your internet business going.
Yes this website is filled with my affiliate links and here is my disclaimer that I might make money if you click on the links but that is the business model of this site.
I promise you though that I will not pressure you with fake scarcity (I stopped counting how many times I have accessed an internet offer that was supposed to be “taken down”- yeah right). I will also spare you the insanely inflated value of stuff. You deserve the truth.
Here is your call to action
If you have not done so, sign-up here to our FREE course that will help you stay on track.
- Take a moment to really decide if you are determined to commit yourself to building your online presence. That means cutting down on television time (not a big loss) and all other distractions and not jumping from one product to the next. Stay here!
- If you can, find a “buddy” that can play the game with you. We learn so much faster and keep motivated longer when we are kept accountable to another person. You can always send me through the Contact Us form the links to what you have created. I might not have the time to answer all messages but I will certainly look at what you have done.
- Make sure you have a good computer and a good internet connection as you need to have an internet connection to accomplish so many tasks.
- STAY FOCUSED. If you decide to play The Big Internet Marketing Game, see it through. Most people fail online because they give up before ever getting results
P.s. About step#1, this means not allowing yourself to be tempted by Facebook or checking your emails constantly.
After all, when they asked Bill Gates and Warren Buffet (separately) what is the number one key to success they both answered FOCUS!
This website was rebuilt using the website Wayback Machine (also called the http://web.archive.org/ ) which displays old websites as I had lost my files in some computer/servers crashes. This site was originally online from 2008 to 2012. Most links were dead as many internet products have come and gone. You will not be one of them.
During the gap that it was not online, I still had other websites that provided me with some income. The hard part is the setting-up but you have to do some maintenance and updates.
The good news is that it gets easier as you learn the process. The other good news is that you will be presented with the simplest (and often cheapest) way to do things. getting your website up will not cost you 5000$ like you sometimes see. So, are you ready? Let’s GO!
Well, congratulations. You get to advance to the next square!
See you on the Next Square!
