PREPARING FOR SUCCESS

The first step in Internet Marketing Success is choosing the right product.
If you choose the wrong product, you are wasting your time on everything else.

You need to sell a product that has a market. For example, if you were selling buggy whips, you wouldn’t be able to make very much money, unless you found a group of people who wanted buggy whips, and you would also need to find enough of these people to make it worth your time selling online.

Finding your “Target Market”

Your target market is just that group of people who want what you have. You need to find out who wants what you have, and then determine if there is an entire group of people who want it.
For example, if you were selling buggy whips, your target market would be the Amish. But since the Amish make most of their own products, you wouldn’t have much of a market to sell to.
What you need to do is find a product that has a big enough customer base for you to profit off of.

If you have a product that doesn’t have a large market, you can still make a profit off of them, provided there are enough people who want what you have. It doesn’t have to be a large group of people, just enough of them to make you a livable income
Here are some examples of products and their target markets:

  • Electronics. Target market: Just about everyone
  • Food. Target market: Everyone eats. You would have a market with everyone except maybe farmers. And even they tend to buy some of their food
  • Soap— Almost everyone uses soap to wash their bodies with each day.
  • Books—Although many people opt to use electronic devises for finding information, there will always be plenty of people who want to pick up an actual book to read.

Market Saturation

Now, just because a product has a large target market doesn’t mean that it’s the product you should choose to sell. Every single example I gave you above is about a product that has a large target market. However, the market is so large that there is very little room for you to muscle your way in and dominate the market. That’s called “market saturation”, and it’s why so many people fail at internet marketing: they pick a market that is so big, the competition is almost undefeatable.

What you want to do is to pick a product in a market that has a big enough customer base for you to profit from, but in a market that not a lot of people are selling in.

Rock, Sand, H20

rockpaper scissors

This  video is so inspirational, I would call it almost as fundamental as having a daily schedule.

If you get this one thing right, you will always succeed.
Here’s to your success!
–Sue

P.S.>The Rock represents Jesus

All of us have things in our life that we would say take priority over other things, but we don’t always live like it. In the video (which I still strongly suggest you watch, you don’t need speakers to get the point), there is a man with some sand, some water, and one big rock. He wants to fit all of these things in the vessel, but there’s only one way to do it…and that’s by putting the main, or “meatiest”, pieces in first, in the proper order. I think the symbolism is obvious here. As internet marketers, we need to “seek first the kingdom” and keep the main thing the main thing. I’ll write more on this tomorrow. Please watch the video even if you have read this. It is powerful!

When is “free” a bad thing

So many websites on the internet offer “freebies”. Free downloads, free gift offers, even free vacations.
When you sign up for something free, there is (almost) always a trade off.
Here’s a list of some of these freebies, and their reason for being free.

1. Free Samples.

Many places will want you to sign up for a free sample and most of the time, they will indeed send you something free. But along with that free cerficate or voucher comes a catch: your information gets sold to third parties who will send you offers that you may, or may not want.

2. Free insurance quote.

Steer clear…if you really want a quote, you would do better to call several of the major insurance claim companies, unless you want insurance agents from EVERYWHERE calling you day and night.

3. Free email.

We all know about this, but what most of you don’t know is that many free email accounts have a clause in their “Privacy” (hmmph!) policy, that says they can show your emails to anyone they choose. It’s usually marketers who don’t know you personally and use your information for market research purposes. Harmless, probably unless you just happen to be one of those people who think that their personal emails should be… well,…personal

4. Free information.

This can be good or it can be a nightmare. Most people who send you free information are hoping to keep you “in their loop “ so that you will return to their website and think about buying their product. Of course, there is no guarantee that you will every visit their website every again, once you get that free download; but they hope you will.

Well, that’s the innocent side. But the very, very invasive side to free information are the people who shamelessly sell your email address to third party vendors who flood your email with unsolicited offers.

It is illegal for anyone to sell your information without your permission, unless they specifically state in their “terms of service” or “privacy policy” that they may do so. So read the fine print.

Internet marketing program

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 $4000 and comes with everything but those lame games you are experiencing.
