Plans of Success

success plansToday I have decided to discuss plans to succeed in certain industries.  There are various industries and jobs that people sometimes feel trapped in.  I am hoping that we can come up with a plan to help you to move forward.  This time I will start with internet marketing.  If you have a request leave a comment or email me please.

With internet marketing you generally start with a product either by being an affiliate or preferably your own product that you have made or had made.  The easiest if you are new to it is by finding an affiliate product to sell where you get a percentage of the sale.  The next if you are newer to the industry is to make a product that you have knowledge about.  This can be an expertise or you can simply learn about a field to make the product.  The general consensus from what I have gathered from my years online is to hire out.  This way you are leveraging your time.

The hardest part of internet marketing is the marketing aspect.  There are a few ways to do this.  The first and most utilized way is make a list.  This is an email list with your most targeted audience.  You can do this a few ways.  The first is to make a manual list.  Although this is much harder it is possible.  I recommend an excel sheet.  This is simple and free.  You place all of the emails you gather either on your squeeze page or other method of marketing in a neat orderly fashion.  Copy and paste it every time you want to email.

The downfall to this method is more work and email services do not always let you email all of the emails you may want to send.  The solution is an auto responder.  Aweber is one of the more popular ones but you can definitely just look around for the best deal for you.  With this tool you can get email addresses placed and email all of them almost no matter how many you have.

Another question that always bothered me was how to get people to give you their emails to send information.  One way is a squeeze page.  This is a simple one page webpage that people sign up to.  To get people to sign up you would normally give away a free item or informative product to the person for giving you their email.  This product should be well thought out.  You should never give away junk because this is your image.  If you do not think you can make it yourself than hire someone to.  The internet has made it very easy through places like Fiverr and Elance.

Never forget your local market.  This is a part that can be tapped that a lot of people will not have advantage.  The question then is how you get your local market.  Places like Craigslist or Backpage are good places to put free ads to let people know you are selling something.  I would suggest also going to your local colleges and supermarkets depending upon the audience you are trying to reach and place flyers.

There is so much stuff on the internet.  People are starting to have problems understanding what is junk and what actually works out there.  Remember that there is normally not a push one button product that actually works.  At least I have not found one that I would trust.  It takes work.  The great thing about online is that once you have an understanding of basic advertising you should not have a problem in the internet marketing world.  If you are finding where you lacking in education and either learn that information or hire someone that already knows the information.

Thanks for reading.  If you need any more advice or have any thoughts please leave comments or email me.
