Today, I will be revealing my simple 3 step plan for internet marketing greatness to hopefully help you stop struggling to get results and get your online business moving in the right direction.
This post was inspired by the 20 plus emails I get everyday from people who message me wanting me to give them the “secret” to success online.
Look, let me be very clear about one thing, becoming a successful internet marketer is not some great “secret” or special skill that only a few among us posses.
Let me say that again, you do not need any special skills to start and run a successful internet marketing business.
Sure there are things that you will need to learn to get up and running but if you are willing to learn, put in the effort and step out of your comfort zone, you have everything you need.
Too many marketers try to over-complicate internet marketing and end up getting lost in a sea of information, training methods and get rich quick schemes.
I don’t want that to happen to you any longer, follow along as I give you the three pillars that are the foundation of my internet marketing empire.
This is not everything you need to go out and make a million dollars on the internet this year but if you learn and implement these 3 core beliefs in your online business, you will have a solid foundation that you can use to build your own online empire and create wealth beyond your imagination!
My Simple 3 Step Plan For Internet Marketing Greatness!!!
Pillar 1: Take Consistent Action!!
Every year million of new marketers come on the scene with dreams of striking it rich online and living the ultimate laptop lifestyle.
They flood the internet looking for training courses and how to systems that promise to teach them how to make loads of easy money with little to no effort.
Most of these new marketers quickly realize that making money online is harder than they thought and instead of hunkering down and just following the system being taught to them, they abandon that training course and start over by searching for another course which may contain a quicker blue-print to wealth.
Before they know it, a year has gone by and they have 10, 20, 50 internet marketing training courses collecting dust on their computer’s hard-drive and they are no closer to making their first sale than a brand new marketer just getting started.
While most of the internet marketing training courses being offered by the so called “gurus” are absolute junk, they do contain some solid fundamentals that are perfect for new marketers who just need a little direction to get going.
If you are ever going to have any chance at success as an internet marketer, you are going to have to stop spending all of your time chasing a magic solution and actually start taking action on what you are learning.
The key point I am trying to make is that you are going to get a lot of advice on how to build your internet marketing business, hell free advice is everywhere you look on the internet, it is what you do with that advice that will determine if you are successful or not.
I am not saying that you should take action on everything you see and hear but you have to start by taking consistent action to move your business forward or you will never grow from where you are right now.
Pick a mentor or training program that is aligned with the way you want to market online and stick to it, take the advice you are given and act on it, you will be amazed at how fast results will start to happen when you stop taking steps back and only move forward!!
Pillar 2: 3 Core Beliefs
I am not going to lie, I stole this one from the founder of Empower Network, Dave Wood, but I believe in it so much that I use it as the base for my online business and marketing model.
The 3 core beliefs are actually quite simple:
- Blog daily
- Learn daily
- Market daily
The one thing that should have stood out to you is “daily”!
This means that you are working on your business each and every day, no exceptions.
Success and greatness come from a lot of small things done well, day after day.
It will be up to you to determine how much time you spend doing each task but the key is that you do them each and every day.
For me personally, my goal is to devote 2 hours to my marketing empire each day, sometime I do less and many times I do more, but 2 hours was a good number for me to commit to and still maintain my work life balance.
When you are first getting started, you will spend more time building your internet marketing business but as you gain experience you will become more and more efficient.
Let’s take a look at each of the core beliefs so we are all on the same page:
Blog daily – this is critical to the growth of your blog.
Everyone loves a blog that is constantly being updated with fresh new content including the most important of them all, Google.
Unless you want to spend every dime you have paying for traffic you are going to need to impress the BIG G so he will rank your content at the top of his search engine.
Blogging daily is great way to increase the exposure your site is getting, help increase your authority, your rankings and ultimately drive more targeted traffic back to your content.
Plus as you get in the habit of blogging daily, your writing skills will naturally get better and more efficient which will decrease the amount of time that you need to spend each day producing your killer content.
I remember when I was first trying the blog daily approach in my business, it was hard constantly coming up with ideas for blog posts but once I learned how to never run out of blog post ideas, I became an unstoppable force in the search engines and I know you can to.
My next pillar will cover how you will never run out of blog post ideas so you can wake up each morning knowing exactly what you will be covering that day.
Learn Daily: content marketing is always changing and those who do not keep up with this every changing environment often get left behind.
The goal for those who want to learn daily should be to set aside a specific amount of time each day to study a new skill, read the latest industry news or work on a part of your business that you are struggling with.
The great thing about internet marketing is that you can learn as you go and always try to refine your skills.
For me personally, I shoot for 30-45 minutes a day of continuing education which often comes in the form of reading the latest posts on one of my favorite blogs or listening to a training or motivational audio file while I am driving around town or on the treadmill.
Please do not get left behind or ever think that you know enough to succeed in this business, the odds are you don’t.
Market daily: blog promotion is just as important as the content that you create and you need to set aside time each day to promote your blog to help grow your online reach.
There are many who will tell you if you create killer content people will naturally find it, sorry to be a downer but it just doesn’t work that way.
You are going to have to spread the word if you want to speed up the ranking process and increase the traffic coming back to your blog.
There are many ways to increase your online exposure including sharing your content on forums, press releases, social media, creating YouTube videos, posting comments on related blogs as well as many many more sources but the idea is you have to be out there hustling up traffic if you want any chance at being successful in this business.
Pillar 3: Develop A Plan of Attack
Now that you are ready to take action and know what you should be doing each day, its time to develop a plan of attack to give your online business some direction.
The problem with planning is most people over-complicate the hell out of it.
I have seen elaborate 5, 10 year or longer plans that involve fancy computer software just to keep track of.
When I say develop a plan of attack, I simply mean that you have one centralized place where you can lay out your goals, your list of upcoming blog posts, and any ideas and projects you have for your business.
For me this is a 99 cent spiral bound notebook that I can easily carry with me wherever I go as to not miss a chance to write down ideas as they come to me.
When I have finished with a post from my list, a project or a goal, I simply cross it off and move on to the next one.
The key is to simplify your plans so that you have a clear direction and path to success.
If your internet marketing business plans will not fit in a small notebook, you need to simplify your plans so that they will.
Typically what I will do is write down my next 10 – 20 blog posts, a couple projects I am actively working on, new skills I want to learn and ideas I want to research to grow my business.
Just remember that a plan, no matter how simple, that gets 100% completed is far more valuable than a bunch of impressive over-reaching plans that never get done.
Start today, take 30 minutes or longer if needed and develop your plan of attack and you will have a much clearer vision of where your business is going.
