We, as full-time online marketers, typically work Monday through Friday each week. The Internet and social media sites hum along 24 hours a day 365 days a year. It makes sense then that we have to match our potential market’s schedule so we reach and engage the most people. So, it stands to reason that sharing your information using social media during Monday through Friday business hours will not reach the majority of your target audience! Or, is this not true?
We all have times in our lives where we might find it difficult to be motivated to follow our dreams and reach our goals. Sometimes life gets in the way, you feel overwhelmed , have too much going on, or you feel like you just don’t have the energy to work on your life’s plan. If you were to research and study those people that are able to consistently and regularly meet their goals and perhaps even go beyond them, you will find that they all use a self-motivation technique system. So when you feel less than enthusiastic about your life and think you may have stepped off the path, there are some things you can do to get back on track and reach your personal summit.
I took a break from the “Making Money Online” Series. But, I was reminded last week by readers that it’s time to get back to it! The purpose of this post is to give new would-be online marketers an overview of some of the most important things they should consider prior to coming online; and to introduce the best straightforward newbie guide available today. So, before we move forward, let’s do a brief review of what’s been covered so far.
So you have this really great idea to start a blog on a particular niche. (Niche: a focused, targetable portion of a market). And, perhaps you even want to make some revenue from AdSense, Clicksor, or other contextual advertising. Hey, that’s great. You’ve put your heart and soul into posting your first few blog posts. No problem. Then, you kind of hit a dry patch… have no clue what else to do! What do you do to keep your blog readers coming back? What does a blogger do to keep their content fresh, and relevant? You’re more than likely happy or satisfied with what you’ve accomplished so far, but now, each time you start a new post, you just aren’t “feeling it?” If you post your so-so blog post, are you afraid your blog will become boring? Maybe you can’t even pinpoint what exactly is wrong, you just “know” it. Maybe you’re distracted or don’t have the time to put together meaty content. Then it’s time to look for some quick solutions! Hopefully I can get you moving in the right direction again!
In my last blog post, I introduced you to some great analyzation tools to help you check your site performance and traffic. You can also see if there are any defects on your site. What do I mean by this statement? Part of my answer is that you can tell by how many times your web site visitors are requesting a certain file or page but they can’t find it on your server; what they’re looking for does not exist. This is an opportunity for customer service. What is your potential customer’s experience like on your site? In this post, I shall reveal some simple strategies to rectify this situation.
After you have set up your blog (I will be giving you specifics in another post should you need guidance on this subject), it will be important that you understand how to measure the results of your new online presence, popularity, and effective marketing techniques. You have laid the foundation, now what? The next step will be to set up your marketing and let the world know what you have to offer. There are many types and ways to market your products and services. If you are a network marketer or direct sales business, typically you will receive ideas and strategies from your upline or sponsors. After you have duplicated their methods, you then need to track how effective your marketing really is.
A short time ago, I did a post about “Leave Corporate America… for Good!”. I know that change can be scary, but it can also be a refreshing, new experience. I still find even though it makes sense to some people to transition to an online business, they need a little coaxing to get up off their butt and take action! Sometimes the reason they haven’t done it yet is because they just don’t know what to do to make that happen. That’s what I’m here for! Just like I had people steer me in the right direction, I’ll do the same for you!
