How to win at Internet marketing.
Okay. Let’s talk here. So you have a dream to be successful. But. What does that mean?
What does it mean, exactly, to be successful at internet marketing? Well, different people define success in different ways. If you make money at internet marketing, most people would call that succeeding at it. Not because money is everything, but because we are specifically talking about marketing here. As in, marketing or selling something on the internet.
But now, I didn’t title this post, “How to succeed at internet marketing” because, most people don’t look at internet marketing as something to make money at. They look at it as a sort of Machiavellian style game…where they win. Here’s what I mean.
A lot of internet marketers are very competitive. And there’s a reason for that. Internet marketing is sort of set up to make you competitive.
Affiliate marketers want to scoop up the seekers.
Other marketers (okay most) have a highly focused goal of being number one on Google…or at least somewhere at the top of the heap.
And a lot of marketers have this belief that if they can get enough “likes” on their face book page, then (hurray!) they win.
But that’s not true. Because being successful at internet marketing has nothing to do with any of those things. It’s all about how much money you make.
You should have a definite goal of how much money you expect to make at internet marketing.
It’s easy to lose focus of what’s important, and get all excited when you have 5000 followers. But is all of that “fame” converting into cash?
Instead of counting your “likes”, checking your stats, and looking at your rankings on Google, you need to ask yourself this question:
“Are any of these things actually making me any money”
