An Internet Marketing Plan: four Things You Must Do.
As with any business, you need a plan. We’ve all heard it… Fail to Plan and You Plan to Fail. I am going to try to turn this into a series of articles that will help you plan to become a success in Internet Marketing. This first article will be to start you thinking. Thinking can be a good thing.
4 Things you MUST DO:
1) Sell something
2) Generate targeted traffic
3) Generate subscribers
4) Build your network
As for selling something, pay close attention here because I am going to let you in on what is perhaps the greatest marketing secret known to man. It is far easier to persuade somebody to get what they already want than to create a demand for something they do not want. Zig Ziglar was famous for his statement “You can get everything you want in life if you just help enough people get what they want.” Sell them what they want. It is now your job to find out what it is that they want, then help them get it. Easy as that.
Generating targeted traffic is a MUST. You must learn how to drive traffic to your site or landing page. There are many, many ways in which to do this. Some cost money, some cost your time. Nothing is FREE. You either pay with your money or your time. A combination of these two techniques is the best option. Get the right type of traffic to your site and you can not help but be successful.
Generating subscribers is akin to building your list. Building a list is not a hobby. It is a business. It is your responsibility and opportunity to send relevant messages to your list to give them something of value, and something to think about, and ultimately give yourself a pay raise whenever you want. If all you do is try to sell something every time you contact them you will lose them as contacts and subscribers. GIVE them something of value and they will more likely stay with you.
NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK. Your network can bring in more subscribers and also bring you business partners to joint venture with. The more people you know and work with, the more information you can share, and thus build a huge alliance. People are more willing to help than you can imagine if you give them the opportunity.
It is not only my opinion, but that of many very successful marketers, that everything you do as far as online marketing should be based on one thing. BUILDING YOUR LIST. But PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do it the right way. Do not spam. Not only is it illegal, it is annoying and it will bring you lots of enemies. It could be the quickest way for you to go out of business. And neither of us wants that.
There are many ways to build a “permission based” email list. Doing what I am doing right now is one of them. It is you responsibility to do it the right way. Do so and see that even you can be successful.
I urge you not to take the training and opportunities spelled out in this report lightly. The ideas and tools here can literally put hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits into you pockets IF you start using them. Be patient, but do something. Nothing was ever created without effort. Understand what is being presented here. It can change your life.
Please look for future article as I talk about other things you must include in your internet marketing plan. There is a lot to cover and a lot of work to do. I do hope I didn’t forget to mention that success also involves work. Are you ready to rock and roll?
