The Best Game Plan for your internet Marketing Business

Does your game plan keep disappearing from day to day, and getting replaced with the latest trick? Here are some common lies that are being promoted on the internet. Do you believe this internal dialogue?

“The best marketing plan for my business is one that gets me lots of followers on Facebook”

(next)

“The best marketing plan for my business is one that brings me traffic.”

Okay. That’s a good start. Let’s go on.

“The Best Marketing plan for my business is one that actually makes me sales, already!!

…you’re getting warm…

“The Best Marketing plan for my business is one the makes me Money, for crying out loud!

Partially true…read on…

The Best Marketing plan for my business is the one that actually makes me a profit…

…you’re almost there…

“Sue, what are you talking about? You don’t think it’s important that I make a profit”?

Let me explain–

If you get lots of people who:

  • like your product,
  • follow you on Facebook, Twitter Instagram…everything
  • and who visit your website

and who even buy from you
but
what you spend in:

  • advertising
  • webhosting
  • software
  • “opportunities”
    and other expenses—-if those expenses are deducted, and they actually DO bring you a profit, then you still have some math to do…because…

it really isn’t profit if your time isn’t paid for.

So. Let’s say that you make 25,000 a year in PURE PROFIT.
Let me ask you something….is the time you invested in making that money worth more than minimum wage? Because, if it is, then you didn’t even make that.

See, a lot of marketers are very good at bookkeeping, but they live in this carrot-on-the stick fantasy world.

They may not measure their success (like so many marketers do) in terms of social media activity, traffic or even sales, because they have been around the block, so to speak, and they have learned that it isn’t what you make, it’s what you keep (after buying leads, paying for ads, etceters.)

But one thing that almost every marketer struggles with is putting value on their time.

A lot of marketers are retired, on disablility, or just self-employed. So they don’t figure in the value of their time, because they just think, I’m not doing anything else with my time right now.

But time always has value, no matter how much of it you think that you have.
We would never hear of someone underselling their product because they have too much money on their hands. Yet marketers consistently undersell their product because they don’t factor in the value of their time, when they go to price their product.

You need to see the value of your time the way that a physical shop owner would price his “overhead”. You may not have the mortgage, lights and gas to pay on a separate building, you may not have inventory to account for, but you can be sure, if you are an internet marketer, you spend plenty time on your business each week.

And what a lot of marketers fail to do is to track the time they actually spend on their business, not taking into account basic things like creating a post, checking their stats, ect. All of these tasks are YOUR TIME that you are INVESTING in your business. You need to account for that when you figure out your profit margin.

Your Bright, internet marketing future.

You can do anything you want to in internet marketing, if you study enough, pay enough, or pray enough.

I’m going to tell you all my SEO story. Now, some of you might appreciate this, and some might not, but it’s my story, and my blog, so here goes.

About three years ago, my husband needed leads for his business. And I mean, he needed them badly.

I needed to get him on Google, up high, for a major search term. But there was just one problem. I had no money, no clue, and no education in SEO, other than the basics. I mean, I knew enough SEO to get noticed, but not enough to rank high on a huge search term.

And I also knew, most marketers would laugh me to shame if they knew my dream, and the Keyword I wanted to score for online.

So, I prayed. and then, the miracle happened. Well, it didn’t happen overnight. It was more like the drip method. Day after day I would listen for the prompting of the Almighty on what to do. I did specific little tweaks and fine-tuning, slight adjustments here and there. I kept at it. And about one month later, I went to my computer. And as I sat down to work, I thought, “Gee wouldn’t it be great if I ranked number one today”.

“ASK ME”

What? You want me to ask you for that?

“ASK ME”

I don’t deserve it

“ASK ME”

I’m scared!

“ASK Me!!”

Really? Okay, God, if it’s your will could I please rank number one on google for (I can’t reveal the keyword here guys).

Click.

Boom

Oh God! YOu did it! You got me number one on Google!!!

“No Susan, I didn’t do that, YOU did that. Now, let me show you HOW you did that”

So, dear reader, here it is…if you have no money and no clue, when You’ve got the Almight in your corner you have all you need

One more thing. I feel that  I need to tell you all. I got successful online when I put my husband’s business ahead of my own.

 

 

Internet Marketing Program

pretty smiling woman smart phone dream time
When most people Google in “internet marketing program”, they are looking for a program that will teach them how to sell their product online.

And, they are looking to be successful.

If they have no money at all, they are looking for free information.

Dear reader, I so feel for you. Let me pull back the curtain and tell you what you are in for…..every time you sign up for free info, you are getting stuck on some marketers list, who will most likely send you nothing but plug after plug, plea after plea, to buy his lame, info-less product.

He has no desire whatsoever to tell you the truth or to see you succeed. He only wants your moolah.

Once he gets it, he will send you some marketing information, but never enough to complete the whole marketing puzzle. You may sense some truth to what he is saying, then spend a whole wad of cash, only to discover that he didn’t tell you enough to become successful at all, only enough to make you realize that you still need more marketing info.

I think it’s time for information marketers to drop the nonsense and start telling their people the truth.

Here it is: you are going to need a whole lot more than several $50 tutorials to pull you through the process. What you need is a real education. A system that is really a system; comprehensive, with your entire future in view.

One of the ironies of marketing education is, the newer you are, the more important it is to get a premium education. Think about it: if someone was illiterate, it would take more time and training in the beginning to teach them how to read, then it would to teach them how to teach themselves how to read even better. That’s because, once they had the fundamentals of reading down, they could understand how to read the next budget priced module.

In the beginning, you may not know enough to decipher that “who else wants to make a million dollars NOw!”internet marketing program, that tells you one tactic that worked for them. And they don’t bother telling you all of the fundamentals they had in place before they implemented that single “secret” (hmmph!) strategy of theirs.
It’s time that marketers start telling the truth!

It’s not enough to learn:

Afilliate marketing

email marketing

website design

search engine optimization

conversion techniques

in and of themselves. All of these elements need to work together. To really succeed at this, you need to learn the guts, the essence, the innards of each of these and then, more importantly, you need to be systematically shown how all of these things work together.

That’s called integrated marketing and it’s the only way to really be successful online.

In my internet marketing program, I explain in detail which of these components are even necessary, and how they work together to bring you maximum impact.

You’ll learn what’s important, what can wait, and what is the best order to do them in.

It’s a layered, nuanced approach that shows you intricately how to get there, step by step. From beginning to (beginners) end.

Will it show you how to make a million dollars in one month? Yes, if you already have a million dollar idea and some capitol to spend on advertising.

Will it show you how to get your beginning idea off the ground, on the web, and how to drive traffic to your website?

Absolutely.

Is if free? NO NO. It costs $120 and comes with everything but those lame games you are experiencing.

What is Content Marketing

How content marketing is different from selling online

Content marketing is what happens when someone makes a website and runs ads off it. There is so much good quality content that the traffic to that website is enormous.

An example of this is an online encyclopedia like Brittanica.com. Of course, an encyclopedia as an example is a no brainer; everyone reading this article knows how an online encyclopedia is a content site. But most of  you reading this don’t have the staff or money to hire enough writers, researchers, and educators to contribute the quality material you would need in order to build an online encyclopedia.

So, let’s use the content site “About.com” as an example.

The Secret to Success

Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
