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.

Getting started at internet marketing can be tough.

One of the biggest pitfalls that internet marketing  beginners make is buying every gadget out there, and then trying to make if work…with other random marketing gadgets.

Aren’t you tired of trying to build a puzzle from 20 different boxes of puzzle pieces?

It’s time for a real internet marketing plan.

For a limited time only, I’m offering internet marketing training to 12 beginning marketers.

If you just learned how to surf the web and get online, you should know a few basics before beginning.

Simple things, like logging on, minimizing windows, and opening email.

If you aren’t up to speed with that, then I send you to my complimentary computer basics website.

But once you know enough to navigate your computer, you are good to go.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

How to sell without a website.  And how to sell your own product.

How to get sales and traffic immediately

Getting an online presence

How to build a blog

Increasing your online following

Getting real traffic to your website

And more.

If you just learned how to navigate your computer, and how to surf the web, but you don’t have a clue about internet marketing, this program is for you.

The Gap Theory.

I have a theory.

I have concluded that most internet marketers have huge gaps in their marketing education.

If they are a new marketer or an affiliate marketer, they lack focus.

If they are very new at blogging, they may lack knowledge on basic blogging skills on  things like making sure that their “about” page doesn’t read “this is an about page” .

If they’ve been blogging awhile, they may not post every day. Or they may not know all of the features that allow them to network with other blogs for traffic.

If they sell their own product on their own website, they may have absolutely horrible graphics with poor lighting and low quality. Or no contact information. And maybe, unbelievable, even no way to be reached at all.

I have concluded that having gaps is the most universal problem that almost every marketer has.

If you know in  your heart that there are some gaping or midsize holes in your marketing plan,  then you owe it to yourself to nail down the basics of internet marketing.

The Biggest Mistake in Online Marketing

The biggest mistake in online marketing

head slam

We’ve all heard about the person who thought that they were on the right road, only to realize, miles later, that they had taken a wrong turn.

I would like to tell you that that’s what happens to most online marketer’s. Oh, if only it were that simple.

Instead, the parable that most closely describes the average online marketer is not as simple as that. It’s more like someone who got on a wrong boat and not only did they get on the wrong boat but they were headed in the wrong direction.

No wait. It’s more like someone who picked the wrong destination for what they were looking for.

See, most marketer focus on the wrong thing entirely. And some of them don’t even know what they are looking for.

The end goal in online marketing is to make a profit. It’s not to get “likes” on facebook, it’s not to get number one on Google. It’s not even to have a great website. And it’s not even to make sales, because if you sell a product that cost more in advertising than you make in sales, then you haven’t made a profit.

Everything you do online has one goal in mind….the profit you make.

I’m not saying that ethics aren’t important. And I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t pick an industry that can help people. But at the end of the day, you need to ask yourself…is this going to make me any real money?

If what you are doing online isn’t making you any money, then it could be that you are in the wrong industry selling the wrong product. Or, it could just be that you are marketing it all wrong.

In my internet marketing program, I show you how to make money. Yes, we have a game plan. And yes, the program is relational in nature, meaning you care about people and you don’t burn them.

But that’s not what my students are looking for…they are looking for how to make real money online.

And that’s exactly what you’ll learn.
