You’re in business to make money. Aren’t you?
Well, well, not so fast.
There are things you MUST do to activate your online business – only then can you boast of being the BOSS.
Last week, I wrote a blog post on niche marketing, and it was a huge success.
Not according to Yahoo News, but according to my core metrics.
I mean, I reached my ideal customers, added 85 real persons to my email list.
I also made some few hundred dollars from that ‘particular’ article.
Do you’ve a mobile phone?
Call me crazy for asking such a funny and archaic question.
Even my 2-year old cousin has a mobile phone.
Since it’s obvious that every one of your ideal customer has a phone as well, why not target mobile users?
Content marketing is all about diversifying your promotional tactics, until you pinpoint the best system that’s suitable for your business.
The hard truth is this: Inasmuch as the internet has grown to dominate the way we communicate, not everyone of your target audience has an internet connection. Do you believe this?
What type of web content do you create more often?
Most small business owners and bloggers only have one definition for content – articles!
But the truth is, there are many different forms of content on the Internet, and yes, text is one of them.
Would you consider your podcast to be content?
What about that instructional video you have on your website?
Both of them are, and because each of the different forms of content is different, there should be a different marketing strategy (on a small scale.
Why did you start a blog in the first place?
A friend of mine said he enjoys writing and that’s all.
The truth is, he doesn’t know how to monetize effectively.
We want to make money off our blogs, and the most popular way is through advertising.
If your blog was penalized by Google AdSense, just because they assumed you were fishy, there is an alternative platform.
T3Leads offers a payout that’s similar to AdSense.
Based on the quality of traffic you sent them, you can enjoy rich payout, while running your blog like you’ve always done – Writing > Marketing > Networking > Communicating.
Money is a source of motivation!
How many times have you tried to raise $1000 from your blog and failed? Well, content marketing could be your saving grace.
We all believe in hard work – working our butts off! But at the end of the day, so many bloggers have nothing to show for their so-called hard work.
If you’ve been battling with this, I’ve been where you’re right now. But my story changed. Yours can change, too.
At the time, I couldn’t generate $50 from my blog and I kept wondering what I was neglecting.
Are you using inbound marketing effectively?
E-commerce is one great way of making money and stretching the legs of the business in the online forum.
The trend of e-commerce allows talented and young entrepreneurs to promote products and services on a global platform.
This does not only offer the opportunity to own a business, but also the potential of acquiring huge customer base.
If one intends to hit it big to the world of ecommerce, he can take advantage of inbound marketing which can give a solid foundation for the business.
