This allows internet marketers and influencers to earn money promoting another business’s products or services.

6. Email Marketing Email marketing is the process of using email to send direct marketing messages to people in an effort to gain new customers and retain existing ones. Although email marketing might not seem like the most glamorous form of internet marketing, don’t underestimate its raw power.
