Internet Marketing For Seniors and Beginners

It’s important to realize that there is no age limit to learning new stuff. Learning digital marketing can help with a person’s current career in getting a promotion, as well as help in finding a new job.

Keeping Things Simple

Learning anything new involves moving out of our comfort zones and dealing with a bit of uncertainty. This process is much easier when we keep things as simple as possible. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when learning new skills.

  • Be patient with ourselves
  • Don’t get caught up with unnecessary technical jargon (stick to the basics). Here is an article that breaks down the computer basics for adults.
  • Practice what is learned at each step of the process to build a strong foundation
  • Understand that what we are currently good at was once new to us and needed to be learned
  • Use our experience and skills to our advantage in the learning process
  • Integrate our interests and passions into the learning experience
  • And as already mentioned, have some fun

Internet Marketing For Seniors — Work at Home


A nice advantage to internet marketing for seniors is that once the skills are learned it creates the ability to earn additional money from home. Regardless of a person’s current financial status, it is nice to create additional income streams doing work that we enjoy and that benefits others.

Each step builds upon the other. Once we learn basic computer skills we can continue to learn advanced specialized knowledge that we can then apply to create an online business if we so desire. We can also outsource the stuff we don’t want to learn or rather not do.


Never too Old to Learn

There are many senior marketing services available that will teach basic computer skills. No one should believe they are too old to learn anything.

When something is new it seems mysterious and beyond our understanding. But once we begin to learn a little we see exactly how things unfold, and the mystery begins to disappear.

Learning new computer skills, and even more advanced ones, is no different from learning to drive a car or cooking a marvelous meal. We all have to begin somewhere.

Our mindset plays a big part here as in the old saying, is the glass half empty or half full. We often tend to kill things off in our heads before we even take the first step. Let’s take that first step so that we are positioned to take the Next Step.

Once we learn the basics we are then off and running. They can be applied to earn additional income streams in any area of interest.

Equipment and Accessories

There are many types of computers from which to choose. Whether we start with a desktop, laptop, or tablet it doesn’t really matter as long as we can get reliable internet access. A computer and printer will get us started just fine.

Here are a few ideas for laptops:

    1. Apple MacBook Air
    2. Dell Inspiron 14″ two in one
    3. HP Chromebook
    4. HP Pavillon
    5. Acer Aspire E 15F
    6. MSI GF63 Thin 9SC-068 12.6 Gaming
    7. ASUS Chromebook. …
    8. MSI GF63 Thin 9SC-068 12.6″ Gaming Laptop

This is just to give you an idea; there are many more options.

Internet Marketing For Seniors — A New AdventureInternet Marketing For Seniors

It is extremely important to make this a fun process. We don’t need to take ourselves or this technical stuff too seriously. If you ever learned any task at all in life, this also can be learned with relative ease.

All that it takes is commitment and consistency. Learn a little bit each day, have a clear goal in mind of what is desired to be accomplished, take consistent action, and make adjustments along the way. Doing this daily will produce remarkable results over time.

When we enjoy the journey we don’t worry about the results. We will get the results we clearly desire at the right time and in the right way. Any job and business built around serving others cannot fail.

If it isn’t fun don’t do it. It is all too easy to go down the rabbit hole of trying to force things to happen. It is who we become in the process of learning new things that is important, not only the tangible results in the form of things and money.

In any event, if digital marketing is something that is truly desired to learn, go for it. It just may lead to areas of discovery and new experiences that will be most fulfilling and quite unexpected.

  1. That’s right, you are never too old to learn.  I am retired, but I work full time just on my website.  If I take a pause, my site usually takes a hit in the stats.  But this is something I am passionate about, and I enjoy it.  Hopefully all my hard work will pay off soon and I will start making a decent income from it.  I won’t give up!

    • Sounds good, Leahrae. With that type of effort and commitment, it is just a matter of time for things to fall nicely into place. All the best.
