Some tips from a Veteran Marketer,
that I learned both online, and in the
‘Brick and Mortar’ marketing
world. This is by no means… all
inclusive, or exhaustive, and not
necessarily in order:-)
You Need to promote less things, in more ways.
Less is better, you must succeed in one thing,
before you move on to another. Mastery is key!
When you learn to make one business successful
you can apply the principals to another.
People who fail Internet Marketing have these
6 things, at the least… in common.
1.) They don’t build a list. ( This should be your #1 Focus
in my opinion:-)) Yes, even the wise ‘Brick and Mortar’
businesses do this! But… it must be a quality list, that
has been groomed, and you have built trust with. Quality
over quantity, most definitely applies here!
2.) Jumping from program to program, always wanting the next
shiny thing/object – usually promising easy riches/money,
(my advice: “leave the shiny things for the raccoons”). Oh,
and yes…. Push Button easy! I’ve heard it a lot, we are a
instant gratification culture in this day and age.
3.) Spread themselves too thin by following the, ‘Multiple
Income Streams’ advice of others. A lot of whom have
never made a dime. Yes, multiple streams are good, you
shouldn’t have all your eggs in one basket, but I believe
building one business at a time is most effective, for most
people, then… rinse and repeat.
4.) Don’t treat their business as just that… a business,
they act like it’s a hobby. They don’t have a written
business plan, with objectives and goals clearly
5.) They don’t want to realize that capital, investing both
time and money, is pretty much the reality of owning any
business… in the real world and online! And yes, time is
money, unless you believe your time is worth nothing!
Relates to #4 again.
6.) Last on this list, they are the type pf person that either
doesn’t take action…. or quits when they don’t see
instantaneous, or fast results! This relates to #2

Your List, Build Your List….
