MM Tip # 9 - 5 Keys to the hard truth about online marketing?

Are you wondering if it is worth your while to market business online?

Have you been online for a while and not made any money with any of the platforms?

Just what is the big secret to online marketing? Does anyone have the "golden key"?

Most of the time what I see regarding online marketing, is that people get on and try it for a week or two... maybe even a few months, and when they do not make a sale, they say it does not work, quit and move on to try something else.

You are your own best salesperson. Nobody else can do it for you. You and only you can speak for yourself and your business the way you need to because only you have your own unique style.

Are you afraid of failing? Are you afraid of winning?

If you are stuck in a rut with a job, you are going paycheck to paycheck and your boss dictates where you can live and what you can buy. You are putting fur coats on your boss's wife's back. Is that what you want? -Or do you see yourself in greater things?

If you really want to make your online marketing work, Get a coach! Get some training, and practice, practice, practice.

Remember "Rome was not built in a day".

There are some key elements to making online marketing work.

1. Get started.

If you have been sitting on the fence trying to decide when to get going or waiting for the perfect time when all the "ducks are in a row", think again. That will NEVER happen! So just dig in and get your "hands dirty".

2. Have a plan.

Sometimes we can get far too intricate with the details of what we need to do to get our online business rolling. Keep it simple.

3. Stick to the plan.

When you get stumped or run into a roadblock, remember that it won't last forever and you have not yet acquired the skills to rise above that particular challenge. Keep persevering, and you will overcome that challenge.

4. Keep on Keeping on for at least a year.

Stick with your online marketing plan for at least a year. Use steady daily routines that help you to keep on top of your plan by establishing daily habits that keep you on track. Just starting your online marketing system and then visiting it occasionally will take 5+ years instead of one year...because when you slack off, your rank drops dramatically in the search engines, and you are basically starting all over again when you finally revisit your system to tweak. You MUST stick to a daily regimen for 1 year.

Remember that posting once a day will never work. You need to be posting at least 5 times a day!

Yes! You heard me correctly!

If you are not making any money online or offline, look at your daily routines. If you are not on a regular daily routine of essential tasks to build your online marketing business, you will NEVER be successful.

5. Be ready and willing to help.

When you get clients as a result of your online marketing, what do you do with them? Do you sell them your package or widget and then never connect with them again? I hope not. I hope that you have a regular follow-up routine that keeps them in the loop of the latest and greatest innovations and ideas to help them further with their own marketing systems online.

Remember that it is not all about yourself; it is all about how many people you can help.

If you leave any one of these 5 things out of your online marketing strategy, you will be sorely disappointed.

Remember that you can always catch one of my webinars to help you.
