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.

What you lack

Once, their was an artist. He was a wonderful artist. He spent lots of time making sculptures, and drawing portraits. And he was very good at it. He did it….for the love of art. But one day, his wife got really, really mad at him. She told him “Harold, you are a good for nothing louse. All you do is draw all day.  I’ve been waiting FIFTEEN YEARS for you to make some money! So, Mr. Man, when are you going to get a real job?

Internet marketer, do you spend lots of time

  • making great looking websites
  • optimizing your site for the search engines
  • creating compellling content?
  • connecting with others on social media
  • building a network of followers

If you do all of that, let me ask you…do you do it for the love of…marketing?

Or do you do it because you are afraid. Marketer, are you afraid to look at the bottom line?

 

The Blog that said and taught nothing

Hey reader, is your blog “thin” in information?

Is the purpose of your blog to educate your readers, or just to get sales?

Do you yourself really appreciate visiting a blog that only shoves product promotion your way?

When you finally do  get a post to do well in the rankings, do you act like a little kid screaming “notice my stuff, buy my stuff. Or by this one here, or maybe this one ..” and the only people who read your site are doing it so you will visit their site…and buy their stuff???

Because, if you are doing that, if all of your posts are nothing but order pages, then you may be

An affiliate marketing site

How’s that working for you? Well, actually, if you have a bunch of followers into “shiny gadget syndrome”, then it may actually work quite well for you…or not.

Because, if none of those other people with shiny gadgets of their own are interested in buying your shiny gadget, then you probably aren’t making much money.

Tell the truth, affiliate: are you really happy? When you sell something as “the latest cool thing” that really isn’t “all that”, don’t you secretly lose respect for your sucker customer…and yourself?

There really is a better way to sell on your blog.  But selling on your blog is not the same as selling something in a store.

Let me explain

People don’t visit your blog to buy something. They read it to

a. Read interesting stories

b. Meet interesting people and then

C. To connect with you.

I’m not saying you can’t offer your product, and I’m not even saying you can’t mention something you sell in each and every post.

But the majority of what you write should inform, engage, and delight your reader….not show off your shiny new gadget.

A lot of very good affiliate marketers don’t really understand how to promote their product on a blog,  lack writing skills, or don’t think they’ll be able to come up with enough material to write.

But there really IS a secret (a word I don’t use alot of, because it’s been used so much), there is absolutely a productive system to being creative, fresh, and providing continuity to your blogging experience.

When you sign up for my course, you will learn how to post fresh,  high ranking, relevant and engaging blog posts day after day, that aren’t lame, that get noticed, and which create some sort of action toward the sale.

When you are ready to take your blog to a whole new level, then invest in your future with Blogging Made Better

You’ll learn  how to write posts that people actually read, “like” and share, and you’ll feel good doing it.

Isn’t it time to start adding value to the blog-o-sphere?

My approach to Internet marketing training

Forget everything you ever heard about internet marketing.
That was then, this is now.

That was for “the masses”– you are an individual.

If you’re tired of dated, tedious marketing methods with a one-size-fits-all approach, then you will love my internet marketing program.

Here’s How I do Internet Marketing Training:

When you sign up for my mentoring program, I look at your unique situation. I develop a program specifically for you and your goals, and you are shown STEP BY STEP how to get there.

After carefully  assessing your needs and your knowledge level, I begin hand crafting your assignments and course.

You are mentored every single day one-on-one and given daily assignments. I make sure that you know what you are doing, before you proceed to the next step.

Weekly phone sessions ensure that you are benefitting from the program, and having all of your questions answered by your mentor. There is no way you can fall through the cracks, because there aren’t any. We go at your pace, as fast or as thorough as you need.
There is one thing you need to know, though. You have to commit to working on your progress. You must apply yourself to the program. We check all of your assignments, and show you how to perfect each step before proceeding. But you have to commit to doing what is laid before you.

It’s not cheap, and we don’t take everyone who signs up. Who do we accept? Only those whom we feel could benefit from the program.
If you are looking for a program that holds you accountable to your success and truly trains you, then this is the program for you. Classes fill quickly, and we don’t take everyone, so sign up below.
