The Truth About Internet Marketing & Succeeding Online

15 Aug

How many times have you heard the statistics that 97% of people fail while only 3%
of people actually succeed and earn a living in this industry? I’m pretty sure that
you’ve heard this over and over again, but you still may wonder how to position
yourself as part of the 3%.

When you take inventory of those that are successful, and tend to have a presence
online, and give you the impression that they are “everywhere”, you will notice a
few common denominators that may reveal how to become apart of the 3%.

I’ll share them with you today so you can begin to alter what you do and how you do
it, and eliminate your chances of being in the failing 97%!

1. They are Consistent in their marketing efforts.

One of the most important aspects of Marketing period, is being consistent.
It’s very hard to get people to take you seriously when they can’t predict
when you’ll show you or not.

Just like a child that expects a parent to be there to pick them up every day
after school, so to does your audience expect you to be there daily with the
information and pick up me up content and resources that keep them coming
back for more.

In order to sell people on your services or products, you must prove to them
that you are someone that they can rely on and can trust.

Major marketer have this skill down packed. You can probably assume that
they have a calendar for their business, with a list of daily and weekly
activities that they partake in to keep their marketing efforts alive.

If you want to begin performing like the 3%’ers, then you’ll want to begin
establishing a calendar of activities that you’ll commit to, and be sure to put
them in place!

2. They understand and know their audience, whom they’re marketing to
and what they want.

A disturbing known fact about the 97%’ers is that they have no clue who
they’re actually marketing to. They may take time to write articles, shoot
videos and write blog posts, but 9.9 times out of 10, if you were to ask them
who their target market is, they’ll probably decline to answer the question
because they simply don’t know!

Knowing your audience, knowing what their challenges are and how to
address them is critical if you truly plan on succeeding.

It makes your writing efforts so much easier and allows you to immediately
connect your offer with the needs your market has.

Before doing more marketing, take into consideration the following
questions:

Who is my target market?

What are they struggling with?

What is it that they want?

How can I give it to them?

3. They have a diverse marketing portfolio.

Using only one method to market your business is like posting an ad in a
newspaper, doing nothing else, and sitting back for months on end hoping
that your phone will ring.

You must get out there and begin using diverse marketing methods for your
business, incorporating things like Article Marketing, Video Marketing,
Writing Squidoo Lenses, Hubpages, Forum Marketing and of course Social
Media Marketing.

I will say that you don’t want to probably do them all, but pick 2-3 to start
out, while creating a consistent plan of action on how you’ll implement them
weekly, then begin adding one more as you’ve mastered the others, to gain
additional exposure from a new audience!

4. They outsource and delegate!

Outsourcing and delegating is soooo important to your business that I can’t
emphasis it enough. With so much to maintain in the Internet Marketing
world, one can grow weary and get burned out pretty quickly if they don’t get
help with those areas that are extremely time consuming and often very
challenging.

The 3%’ers have mastered the art of handing things over to people who are
more skilled and trained than they are. The key is in discovering what it is
that you do best, and what makes you money and focus solely on those things
while handing over the rest.

Outsourcing can be fairly inexpensive, sometimes even averaging around $2
per hour (depending on expertise and location of your contractor). Either
way, it’s more affordable than most people realize and should be factored
into your monthly expenses as a “necessary expense”.

To start out delegating the more important tasks that you may fear letting go,
you can start using Private Label Rights Writers who will create your content
for you while you have the freedom to put your name on it and take the
credit.

great way to begin to free up your time to focus on more critical areas that
really need your attention.

As you can see, becoming apart of the 3%’ers isn’t that far out of reach. It just
takes you making a few small changes and tweaks to what you’ve been doing,
and you’ll discover that you’re well on your way to dominating your niche,
succeeding in your efforts while finally making a decent income doing it.
