There’s a huge spectrum of pain ranging from not knowing where to start, to online marketers who have no idea what to do next, to those up to their fingers in e-mails but feeling like they’re not doing enough. This all sounds to me like a symptom of a much larger issue. What I’d like to point out to you is that all of this pain and confusion is a result of marketers being unable to measure their success.
One of the most important things that Bad Ass Marketers Joshua has learned about online marketing is that you can never have enough people sending traffic to your website or landing page. There’s a lot of information on the Internet but it all takes the form of “content” infographics”. What I have found is that most Internet marketers have a limited number of articles on hand and then spend a bunch of time each week rehashing the same tired content. They’re not doing themselves any favors at all.
So how can marketers be better at generating leads and revenue? Well, first of all, they need to learn what the different types of traffic are. The answer is simple. Traffic is traffic. That means there’s always going to be someone looking for what you have to offer.
In order to really get ahead as an online marketer, you need to be able to get your message across in front of these people in a way that will generate leads for you. This will take some time but it will also require some effort. However, once you’re able to get your message across effectively you’ll find yourself up and running.
Here’s how to do this… by learning as much as you can about how to get started. You’ll find that there are tons of books, e-books, websites, and training programs available on how to build a business. If you look hard enough you can find some free e-books and information on the Internet so take advantage of them.
What you’re looking for is someone who has already found success using these strategies and putting them into practice. What you also need to look for is someone who has a proven system that works. Once you find someone like this, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. He/she has already done this so why not try something similar to theirs?
Next, you’ll need to figure out what type of traffic you want to bring in. This can be broken down into several different categories. Social media, backlinks, article submissions, PPC, blogging, etc.
Finally, you’ll need to figure out where your money is going after generating leads. Is it going into your own personal pockets or do you want to go after the big PPC bucks? The answer will all be in your head but it will also be influenced by the amount of time you have available to put into building your network.
In summary: You need to educate yourself on how to generate traffic and follow through with this education. You need to build your skills to help you generate leads and make sales. Once you have these two key elements in place, you’ll be able to build up a big network quickly and start generating money.
Remember that although many online marketers use automated systems they are not as effective as you might think. In order to really be successful, you’ll need to work hard at it.
Remember that you are responsible for everything about your online marketing. If you don’t you won’t get results.
Remember that although most online marketers are not really bothered about generating revenue there are many who are. The fact is if you’re not concerned with making money then you’re not going to stick around long in this field.
