If you’re like me then you drank the hype kool-aid at one time or another….

You bought into the lie that internet marketing was as easy as giving a dog a bone……

internet marketing failureHere’s a fact for you: 97% of people that take a stab at internet marketing fail miserably.

But don’t let that scare you….

You my friend are an above average person with an awesome person in your corner cheering you on….(that awesome person is me.lol)

Let me tell you, this is my reality, and it can be yours too.

I will tell you that with the right information, anyone who is willing to put in the time and energy can succeed in internet marketing.

Without further a-do, let’s get to some awesome tips that will get you on the right track to internet marketing success.

 Online Marketing: 5 Tips For Newbies

Tip 1:

You must believe in yourself, and believe that you can actually be very successful online…..

Despite what the people around you say…..don’t listen to negative Nancy’s, even the one’s you love, you CAN do this, but you MUST believe you can.

I want you to think about the word freedom.

What does it mean for you?

What does it mean as it relates to how you currently earn an income?

Do you feel you have time freedom, financial freedom, and all the other freedom you want?

If not, keep reading because the internet can be the vehicle to your FREEDOM.

Tip 2:

work smarter in internet marketingEver heard the term work smarter NOT harder?

Well that is what I am asking you to do…..

You can market your online business a million different ways, but just because you can, doesn’t mean you should do it.

Just because I can fit in my daughter teenager clothes, doesn’t mean I should be wearing em….

Get my drift here?

Trying to include every marketing strategy into your marketing plan is just not smart, and will cause you to get over-whelmed, confused, and frustrated when nothing is working.

Stop following 100 different gurus with 100 different teaching styles going in a 100 different directions…this is NOT wise.

You will get overwhelmed or spend most of your day doing things that will NEVER generate you an income or grown your business.

Be where your target audience is…period.

If your product is golf shoes, why are you hanging out on a bowling forum?

Visit Quantcast.com to discover more about which sites cater to what demographics.

Quantcast is also a great way to search your competitor sites, and this will help you research your target audience:).

Stop! Did you get that?

You need to figure out who your target audience truly is, and go where they go……research to find out where they go.

But let me confess something:

When I first started out I was doing it all WRONG, and once I figured out I had wasted so much time and energy, I was angry.

I was giving it my all, and I really didn’t know what I didn’t know…….

So that’s my main motivation now, paying it forward…..

TIP 3:

Get to list building! This is one of the most important steps.

I avoided list building like the plague because I didn’t want to bother with it.

Then I noticed that all of the successful internet marketing gurus had a list….

I should know because I was on several of their lists. LOL

Tip 4:

no failure in internet marketingCreate an internet marketing plan!

Now I know you are thinking, Kay, come on…..why waste a tip on the obvious?

But let me tell you, common sense is NOT so common after-all.

I want to make sure that we cover our bases, and talk a little bit about the plan.

Be able to answer the following questions:

  • What internet advertising methods are you interested in?
  • How much do you have to spend on the methods (that goes for time and money)?
  • Have you defined your goals (how many leads you want, how much money you want to make, ect)?
  • How well do you know your target audience?
  • What are the logistics of your marketing plan (how often will you do what to produce results)?
  • Do you have the skills to write copy, create landing pages, or anything else you need to make sure that you can be effective?

Once your plan is made, you need to do more research…..

  • Research the most effective way to facilitate the marketing methods you picked. (make sure the methods you picked align with your target audience, and where they are)
  • Continue educating yourself, so you are up to date with the method you are using.

Test Your Marketing Methods

Don’t dedicate a budget of too much time or money to any marketing method. You want to make sure you do a test run first…..test, tweak, test, and test some more.

Analyze Your Internet Marketing Methods

Now you are rockin’ & rollin’ it’s time to analyze what’s happening.

Check your stats often, so you know what’s working, and what’s not.

Do more of the stuff that works, and scrap the rest.

Don’t waste time or money on marketing methods that aren’t working.

If all else fails, ask for help.

Feel free to reach out to me if you need some friendly advice:)

Tip 5:

Master atleast 1 lead generation method….

When I say master it, I mean know it so well that you could teach a course on it!

Find a method that you likes, that fits with your business model, and know that one like the back of your hand before moving on to a million other methods.

**Remember, generating leads, when you are not ready for the leads is a HUGE mistake**

You should have a capture page, an awesome sales funnel, ect to turn those leads into buyers.

BONUS TIPS:

bonus internet marketing tips*If you don’t currently have a website, make your website domain your main keyword.

People in the SEO world have said that exact match domains don’t work, but I have used it to rank 1 of my client sites for a competitive keyword in less than a month.

If you need help with your SEO, just connect with me, and let me know:).

*Make sure you have created a product, or are affiliated with a product that is AWESOME that you can stand behind. A product that provides real value, and helps people.

Have a great offer, if you have a crappy product, you won’t have a business for long………

*Have a high converting sales funnel.

I mentioned this earlier, but if you want great income, you need a great sales funnel.

Some leads that you generate will not be ready to buy when they see your product the first time…

If they are in your sales funnel, you will have the opportunity to present your offer again.

*Become a lifetime learner and student of the online marketing world.
