Baby Boomers And Marketing

Learn To Be An Online Marketer
Are you a baby boomer who does not want to opt for the typical retirement “Thanks For The Many Years” plaque? Are you curious about baby boomers and marketing – online?
I think that baby boomers are an unusual, and outstanding generation in the grand scheme of recent history. They are mostly a very active group that loves both mental and physical challenges.
And unfortunately many boomers don’t have the option to retire from their career jobs. They may yearn for freedom, although that doesn’t necessarily mean not working.
It means working on their own terms, preferably at home (and while traveling) and involving themselves in a line of work that interests them personally.
No gold watch, no rocking chair on the front porch! Boring! And maybe not sustainable.
Boomers Aim For the Freedom That Comes With Being an Online Entrepreneur
Enough of the boomers have discovered the freer lifestyle that comes from being an online marketer. Among an estimated eighty million (and increasing daily), boomers are arriving at their retirement ages with the mindsets to build an online home business.

A large measure of freedom can result leaving you extra personal time to devote to other matters like family and traveling, while continuing to earn money from your marketing blogs.

The best online entrepreneur classes I’ve found (after years of seeking!) are at Wealthy Affiliate University.
Most internet business is affiliate marketing. A writer blogs about a popular or niche item, and the reader follows the recommendation. By clicking on the writer’s link to a retail site (like Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc.,) and makes their purchases.
And voila! The writer receives a commission.
Another type of product is purely digital. Clickbank is a big marketplace of digital items which have a large appeal because the customer can get it “right now!”. Click on that link for more details!
