There are thousands of tips available online for internet marketing beginners to research but the problem with most of these tips is that they don’t address the problems that face people who are new to owning a business on the internet.
There are three essential steps that need to be taken by anyone who wants success with an internet-based marketing business. In this article, we will discuss these three marketing tips that will lead you to greater online success.
1. It Is More Difficult To Set Goals than You May Think!
Do you know what goals you really want to achieve with your internet based business opportunity? Ask the many of the new business owners what their goals are and the answers you will in all likelihood get from them will be as follows;
- I want to work from home
- I want to subsidize my current income
- I want to buy a new motor car, pay my kid’s college fees etc.
The biggest problem with these sorts of goals is that they are not business goals, they are all personal ones. It is imperative when starting a new business that you set goals related to what you want to achieve in your business and these goals also need to have timelines attached to them, so that you can measure your progress, and they will also give a starting point and the direction in which you need to take action to grow.
2. Create An Action Plan That Is Action Based Not Means-Based
Creating an action plan requires that it has actions in it and not just the means. In other words having an action plan that merely states “I want to have a website that is ranked at the top of Google for my particular keywords” is not an action plan that is action based, this is merely the result that is wanted not what you are going to do to get there.
Another example would be “I will be submitting 70 articles to article directories.” This is a great plan but you need to write down the action of exactly how you are going to achieve this. How many articles per week and how you are going to set about writing these articles and the time frame in which you intend to get these articles published, in other words, the action that you will be taking to achieve this result?
3. Start Out with The End Game In Mind
When you begin your internet business career, every project that you undertake should have an end game. This is the point at which you get out.
This is something that does not need to be a hard and fast rule, but it does need to be in existence and the best way to make this effective is to make a decision in writing about what action you intend taking when you think your website has reached the point of making maximum profits for the least amount of work.
This is when you will bring your end game in to play. This would usually be the point at which the majority of people would decide to sell their website for the simple reason that it would have reached its greatest value. Whatever your end game is though, the main thing is that it needs to exist.
These three internet-based business tips are fundamental to the success of your business and although they are not very exciting if you understand and use them as a guide, you will be on the right path to building a successful and prosperous marketing business online.
