Our user friendly WordPress Website Creation lessons will walk you through the steps to install and set up WordPress website. Our lessons include a combination of videos, articles, and screenshots to cater to every learning style. The diligent instructors have even complied a reference guide of frequently used, and mandatory plugins that will be very useful to you as you walk through the WordPress Creation lessons.

Adding your social networking links, a calendar, or an opt in form to your website are a few popular options that are available and easy to use.

You are reading this blog because you want to pursue a career in Internet Marketing. I am so happy that you have decided to dedicate the time and self discipline needed to be successful in this business. I can’t and won’t sugarcoat it, it won’t be easy, but like anything that requires full commitment, it will be worth it.
Many of your friends and families may question your lifestyle choice.
“Why don’t you get a regular job?”
“Why would you want to sit on the computer all day?”
“Is that a scam?”
The list goes on and on, they don’t understand and that is Ok. Some people are perfectly happy in their comfort zone and have different goals for life. On the other hand you are a Dream Chaser, you feel driven to reach your fullest potential and want more than the typical 9 to 5. Dream Chasers live for the challenge of wanting more out of life.
Aside from the outsiders questioning you, you may be doubting yourself internally and have feelings of being scared, uncomfortable or just unsure about your decision to be a Dream Chaser. Stay positive and keep pushing past the negative thoughts because deep down you know you will never truly be happy pursuing the 9 to 5 or letting life pass you by.
Achieving anything worth bragging about requires long and short term goal setting. This is where your personal definition of success will play a major role in reaching your goal. It will define what or who you are striving to be and why. Make sure your reasons are true to your heart and passions because when times get tough those goals need to stay as the main focus and that will keep you going toward your long term goal. Motivation is the key so make sure you set short term goals also so you can recognize your progress along the way. Many successful people agree dream chasing is much more than reaching the end result and along the way you will grow, learn, and be a better you because you chased your dreams.
So go out there and get started, be a Dream Chaser and follow your heart! Visit IMTCVA.com to get started in Internet Marketing today.

I was talking to friend last night that was concerned about getting laid off from work. He’s a hard worker and very talented, but he works for the government and possible automatic downsizing and budget cuts are looming for his business. Just in case he lost his job, he decided to look at all of the things he felt capable of doing for outside clients.
He literally pulled out a piece of paper and made a crude flow chart of his talents and what kind of private sector businesses would be interested in hiring him. When he outlined all of the things he could do for others, he realized then that maybe working for himself was a more profitable endeavor than typical employment. While working for a company and only doing a few everyday tasks, he had forgotten just how much he was capable of and how much he was really worth.
IMTC understands this concept. The web is a constantly changing place and we keep up with every aspect of Internet marketing. We believe that working for yourself is a more rewarding practice, and we have the knowledge and tools for success. Everything that a business could possibly need is provided in the vast library of courses and lessons at IMTC. If you jotted down everything you could learn here and how much those services are worth to the online business world, it would be a real eye-opener. Just like what happened to my friend. Maybe you have forgotten just how talented you are and how much you’re worth.
Working from home is a big dream for many people. If you have a love or interest for writing, then creating blog posts for people could be the ticket to self-employment.
Many businesses have a blog. It’s a necessity in today’s business world. But most people who work for a company have no idea how to write one. Yes, they know about their business, but they don’t realize that blogs are search engine sensitive. It requires the proper keyword research and structure to have a post that people can find.
There’s also a technique for engagement as well. On the web, you’re not writing just to be entertaining, you have to have the proper vehicles in place for people to comment, engage and share. If visitors just read the post and leave, it’s a waste of valuable time for a company to even have a blog. A blog is much more than a website, much more than an online calling card. It’s a place to build a massive worldwide audience that traditional marketing can’t reach, and a way to educate future and present customers about your brand.
If you have the right skills, you can be in high demand by businesses that need real conversion and measurable success with their blogs. Those kind of professional blogging skills are available at the Internet Marketing Training Center.
