Approximately 1 year ago, at the urging of my son we started incorporating internet marketing into our business model. It has been so successful that I feel compelled to share this so others can learn how to professionally market their business. In the old method we were hopeful to sponsor 1 to 2 new partner or distributors per month. The reality is the average person only sponsors 2 people for the whole time they are with their networking company.
It may be simplydue to the usualfactors i.e. inadequate time and energyinvestment in advertising, poordedication, lack of perseverance, no focus, ambitiously low internet marketing goalsetting and so on.
No Website. Some products and programs are telling you that you don`t need a website. This is a misguided advice! You need a website! If you don`t know anything about HTML or web design, create a blog. People and search engines love blogs if they are full of great original content.
You should frequently look at the growth of your venture and decide if other tactics would be useful. When you effectively plan your work, you won’t waste time thinking what needs to be done. Having your plans laid out in advance will certainly add an element of clarity. Realizing your success will be easier when your mind is not cluttered with unnecessary thoughts. Your time management will be better served with the help of all of the above. Be assertive when you delve into the Internet marketing business; time management is vital to your triumph.
What I find is that most of the success stories bring to fruition some passion or some idea that came about during childhood. These ideas sometimes lay dormant for many years; however, sooner or later they come to the surface and when they do its just a matter of time before that idea takes on a life of its own.
If you are unsuccessful finding an online marketing company this way, you can start your search on the Internet. However, it is a good time to caution you. Like in the real world, there are many scams out there. This is also true online. It is best to take some time (do the research) and find reputable companies that will help you drive traffic to your web site. A company that makes ridiculous or outrageous claims should be avoided at all costs. They may send only a trickle of traffic your way or none at all. In the end you might be held responsible for paying them for doing nothing for you. This happens more often than you might think.
If you want to market online, try to remember that your earnings potential is quite wide. You aren’t bound by the typical geography and limitations that plague a “normal” business. This will help you set and go after lofty ideas. So when you are setting your own goals, do not make those goals too small. Set the bar high and don’t be afraid to go after it. Even though they might not seem achievable right now, they become more attainable when you start to take real action. It’s important and good to think big right now. This is the only mindset that can help you find longer term success through your IM business.
First of all, your blog needs to be self-hosted. This means that it is yours and you pay a company to host it. There are several free blog sites around, and whilst they are great for someone who is blogging for fun, if this is your home business, you definitely need your own. This is because if it is a free site, they can close your blog down if they do not like something you do. This cannot happen with a self-hosted blog.
