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.

How to Sell anything on the internet

Part one of my special report,

“How to avoid the internet-marketing trap”

How to

    Really

Make Money Online

I.Preventing Distractions.

A. Avoiding Information overload.Even “free” information becomes wearisome, when it’s no info at all!. Most teaser newsletters are mere snippets of info, nuggets of unrelated knowledge that clog your inbox. To really learn about something, you need to

really learn about it!,

and get real training. On that note, avoid buying every training manual out there before you can afford it. Get all the knowledge you can, but when you do make sure

1)it is knowledge you need
2)it is knowledge you can afford.

B. Avoid “Shiny Gadget Syndrome”In the beginning, you need to be extremely selective about the tools you buy. This is where most newbies get sucked in and go “belly-up” financially. There seems to be a persistent myth in the online world that some ultra-simple formula exists to make you cash over night.

Here is the simple truth:

The vast majority of internet marketers make their money by selling get rich quick plans

Why is this so successful? Because we want to believe it. Oh, people, be very very leary of people who tell you that you can make money hand over fist by doing a b and c. There are a whole lot of steps between a and b, and even more between b and c.
Even this manual is only an outline

Before you buy any program promising to make you money, make sure that you can afford them, and that they are what you really need.

Make sure that what you are purchasing is significant to your specific purpose.
And make sure that you are never “in the hole” when you purchase any online tools or training. Don’t go into debt trying to make money. That’s just dumb. Instead, buy what you need, one tool at a time.

Now, knowing just what to do first, what to buy or what service to pay for, and in what order to do it is the key to really making money.

To start doing that immediately, sign up for my internet marketing course. In it, I’ll show you exactly what to do to begin making money immediately, and when to begin critical tasks, while waiting on others.

If you want to see the whole marketing broth cook beautifully, you don’t just need the right ingredients; you also need to know how to put it all together. Right temperatures. When to stir, to add, to turn up the heat. I show you all of this. It’s sort of like Julia Child showing a batchelor how to make thanksgiving dinner. Even if he can’t boil water.

Really.
