Don’t Rush Your Internet Marketing Business

It’s pretty important to follow the directions with most things. One example is if you were baking a cake and the recipe called for “bake at 350 for 1 hour”. It would be a real mess if you decided 30 minutes was long enough. Nothing like what you would expect the cake to look like. It would likely be gooey and flat or at least lopsided.

watch it!

The same principle should be applied to starting a home business online. No matter which strategies you employ it’s going to take time. This is the case even if you have ‘autopilot’ or automation. Whether or not you use paid advertising, it will take some time.

If you have foolishly gambled with your rent money or otherwise over-extended yourself financially, it is understandable you would now be in a rush to recover. If you are paying membership fees and have other monthly costs then you are anxious to see a return on your investment. This is one element that causes people to rush. Understandable but still not right.

It is still going to take as much time as it takes to start seeing tangible results. Nobody can say when it will start to produce income. Of course income is very much dependent on how much time and effort you are willing to invest regardless of spending money to promote your business or not.

Other factors that we do not control are also relevant, such as the economy, world affairs and even the weather. The employment picture is also relevant and this one can manifest itself either way; when people fear that they may be losing their job or have already lost one, some will feel compelled to save every last dime; others will start to build something on their own using whatever money they have.

Another factor is what people will do when they see your ads or emails. Most will do nothing except read. So you need more time to reach those that are interested enough to take action when they see your opportunity. There are many existing online businesses looking to expand their earnings potential with new programs.

There are always many new start-ups and people exploring the possibilities to make money online. So you are not alone. The point is that only a small percentage of the world population is serious about starting a business on the Internet. It is like finding the ‘needle in the haystack’ to find interested people. So remember this if you feel discouraged if you send 100s of emails and leads and other ads with no response. This does not mean stop.. It means keep trying.

The other really disastrous bad idea for a business start-up is to sit back and wait for the response you are expecting. Never just put out a bunch of ads and then kick back and wait for the money. You need to keep trying aggressively all the time. This is how you build and sustain momentum. Do not become complacent or ever feel you have done enough to promote your business and deserve a rest. You will never have done enough unless you are raking in millions.

Internet Marketing Business Success

The right mindset is probably the most significant skill to cultivate if you want to succeed with an Internet marketing business. Successful marketers seem not to pay any attention to negativity and almost seem to be in denial sometimes. The point is why waste time and energy on anything that is not conducive to business? This is what you call true focus.

Successful Internet marketers realize sometimes they have to work hard if they want to achieve a goal. They learn effective techniques and they use them consistently. They are aware of the frequent changes in the industry and do not hesitate to incorporate new ideas and trends into their marketing strategy.

Serious Internet business entrepreneurs realize that there is no magic or gimmick that will ever replace them being engaged in their business. They know even ‘autopilot’ requires their attention at various junctures. While various tools or services can help to get the work done, one must still be cognizant of what is going on in their own organization.

An Internet marketing business is just like any other serious business. It requires discipline, expertise, and hard work. Every business needs time to produce the results you want to achieve. How much time is always variable and depends on many factors. Some we can control, and others that we can’t. We have to be willing to see the big picture and roll with the punches.

Maybe it is easier to stay focused when you are having fun. It does seem that successful Internet marketers are enjoying what they do. Of course you can’t really see people smiling on the Internet but it does always seem that they are when you communicate with someone who has a handle on what they are doing and loves being there!

Components of the success mindset include unconquerable positivity, focus, self-confidence, a willingness to learn and keep learning (an open mind), patience and logic. If some of these things don’t come naturally, we can really cultivate them by focusing our attention on them. Sometimes that happens when we are showing the opposite characteristic and we can remember to counter it.

Kind of like the cartoons where we have a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other. The idea is to listen to the angel if we want to do the right thing. It may sound funny, but really isn’t, because we can really cause our own demise with our attitude, as much as we can create our own success.

Internet Marketing – Free SEO Traffic

Search engines are a very important aspect to any Internet marketing business. Search engine optimization (SEO) is one technique that has it all. SEO can be effective, it can be free, and it is easy to learn and do, although it takes some work.

SEO!

All one needs to do is go to a search engine like google.com and type in ‘search engine optimization’ and they can find free information on what it is and how to do it – or have it done. Even though you are intending to do it yourself for free, you can still use the links you will find for paid SEO services just to learn.

Taking the word ‘optimization’ and looking at the reference in Merriam Webster’s dictionary, “an act, process, or methodology of making something (as a design, system, or decision) as fully perfect, functional, or effective as possible”. So this is another big clue about what exactly SEO is.

SEO is one of those acronyms that you will see bandied about quite frequently in Internet marketing circles. We shouldn’t be intimidated by references that we do not understand and the best way to limit any feelings of disorientation caused by them is to find out what they mean. So now we know, and we can continue on to learn just what is involved.

There are wonderful SEO sites that have as much useful information as any paid course and provide free eBooks to download, as well as many other resources that are there for you to use for free. A few of the most notable are searchengineland.com, seobook.com, searchenginewatch.com. Of course, Google itself has some webmaster tools you can use to do direct research once you get started.

‘Content’ and ‘keywords’ are some of the SEO terminology you will also encounter frequently. These are both key elements to SEO and getting free traffic from using SEO strategies. This traffic is said to be ‘targeted’ (by keyword usage) and ‘organic’ (free and natural). “Organic search results are listings on search engine results pages that appear because of their relevance to the search terms, (keywords) as opposed to their being advertisements”. (From Wikipedia.org)

There are definite rules that must be observed if one wants to use SEO as a strategy for successfully promoting an online business. You should learn what they are and realize that with basic honesty, just as in anything, you will be fine. Don’t try to take short-cuts or play any tricks, because you are dealing with robots that don’t miss much.

Most gimmicks that may appear to work well, (increase your traffic) may eventually harm your search engine ranking. Many ‘linking’ schemes – for example, buying links for the purpose of SEO, or another example, ‘keyword stuffing’ may cause your site ranking to be penalized. So we need to know what to do and what not to do to take full advantage of this strategy.
