Internet Marketing Landscape in Sri Lanka

The beauty of internet marketing is that it is not necessary that you possess any kind of marketing kit or business guide. All you need is little knowledge about the operating skills of the computer and lots of spare time to utilize. Once you understand your skills you can Google and search for the perfect job that well suits it. You can start an internet marketing business at any shoestring budget and there are also possibilities for you to join any affiliate program with good reviews as a beginner. But it is essential that you be cautious with your money while investing in the virtual industry.

The simple way to accept & withdraw your earning:

Internet marketing deals with international clients and firms therefore you will need a virtual currency acceptable and payable source. PayPal is the accepted way of money transactions which is done in most of the European countries and many other E-commerce organizations around the globe. Creating your own account is a very instant and easy task once you sign up with PayPal. Once you become the privileged Srilankan PayPal owner you are eligible for using it for buying and selling products and services. But the biggest issue faced by Srilankan people is that we are not allowed to receive payments from others. But there are few secret tips available for accepting money from other PayPal account holders. The following are a few other alternate payment processors or gateways that support Srilankan holders. Following are the few-

1.PayPal – it is free and you can send and buy

  1. Moneybookers: This is also free and you can easily send, buy, accept and withdraw
  2. Payza:  it is free and you can send, buy accept, withdraw and debit card
  3. this requires $49 for signing up which allows you to accept, withdraw and use the debit cards.
  4. Payoneer, CCnow, Clickbank, and more

Recommended Internet Marketing strategies  for Sri Lankan Online Marketers

1, Affiliate Marketing: Affiliate Marketing is a successful venture that can be shared between the online merchant and the owner of the website. The owner of the website is allowed to place advertisements that help in selling products or services by enabling them to visit the web page. And you receive a share of profit. But you should do some research and find the best affiliate program and sign up.

The niche of the modern trends are- web-hosting, Amazon and Click bank, etc such as


2, CPA (Cost per Action) Marketing: Cost per Action or the Cost per Acquisitions is a cost-effective method of affiliate marketing where you get paid for certain actions for an advertisement. With the help of the CPA networks, you can start earning money once a prospect signs up and fills out a one-page form, email list, or even something as simple as filling out their zip code. These dealings are simple and easy which means more consistent profits and a huge conversion rate. Check the CPA affiliate accounts and other withdrawal options available from the huge list of CPA networks-:

3, Freelancing: If you are a person with good writing and reading skills with good command of the English language along with typing talent then you can become a freelancer. A freelancer offers his or her services in the field of web designing, graphic designing or programming or content writing, and much more. But you need to concentrate and totally dedicate your Time, Effort, and talents in order to succeed exceedingly. The first step involved is that you sign up with any freelancing website that suits your dreams. Search for particular projects and start bidding. You can send your personal message to the clients while bidding with special emphasis on your talents and experience. Once the client accepts your bid then you can start your work with milestone payments through the Escrow method. You can start submitting your project reports and then request payments through Escrow. And you can easily withdraw your funds from Escrow to your payments site such as Moneybookers.

4, Data entry Jobs: Every day I receive inquiries about the available Data entry jobs and opportunities in the land of Srilanka. But most of the Data Entry jobs available offered in the online sources are not trustworthy. There are few legit data entry businesses available but it is quite difficult and hard to find a worthy job. Therefore research and analyze well before signing up for the job to understand the assignment methods and business requirements to support response speed. The chief job work of the Data entry job is to collect the data, create reports, convert formats and documents, fill and submit the online forms. Analyze the company’s background, credentials, and payout methods and once you are satisfied with the credibility then sign up! But I am not ready to recommend any Data entry websites because of the numerous fakes and fraudulent companies online.

Other Online Business Opportunities:

  1. Search engine Optimization Jobs (Online)
  2. Social Media Marketing Jobs (Online)
  3. Adsense, Co-op Adnetworks (Online)
  4. Content Writing (Offline, Online)
  5. Reselling & Referral (offline, Online)
  6. Professional Business (Offline, Online)
  7. Domain brokerage, Site Flipping ( Online )

There are many more legit online marketing opportunities available on the internet, simply Google it, you will find more and more! but pay more attention to legit business methods, do not fall any quick rich scheme business methods.

    I do agree with you in that you dont need a good site for instance to make huge money. Personally I started small with article writing before building a website.
