Today I am going to talk about 5 fundamental steps to Internet marketing and online business success. You need to follow these steps and take action. Once you do I have no doubt you will become a successful internet marketer.
I follow these steps in my online business on a daily basis. They are also used by many other successful marketers to make real fortunes online.
Step 1. Setting Your Initial Goals
The first step in making money online is setting goals. You have to have goals if you want to make money online or otherwise. No matter Whether you want to make $50/day or $500/day or more, the first step is to set a goal. Once you have a clear “Goal” you know exactly what you are shooting for. Just as important, your goals must be SMART goals:
- Specific – Your goals must be clearly defined and very specific. Having broad or general goals will have a negative impact on your business.
- Measurable – It is also important that your goals involve numbers or some kind of measurable metric.
- Attainable – Your goals have to be humanly attainable.
- Realistic – Setting a goal to make $5k per day by next week is not realistic.
- Timely – Your goals also need to have a definite time frame.
Set short and long term goals. This will allow you to achieve small successes. At the same time you will be looking at the big picture and where you want to go.
Those who become successful in the Internet Marketing field, or any other business for that matter, have set clear goals for themselves and then they never give up. They strive until they meet their goals.
Step 2. Do Your Research and Select a Niche to Promote
Do a comprehensive niche research. Make sure that the niche you choose is going to make you money. If you do this it will make focusing on your Internet marketing business much more worthwhile.
My recommendation is that you pick a niche you have an interest in. The more passionate you are about something, the easier it will be to write about it and talk about. You will find it much easier to make educated and comprehensive recommendations about your product.
Step 3. Find The Right Keywords -Do your keyword research
You will need to research keywords before you begin promoting your niche products.
Finding the right keywords is one of the keys to success in this business. So be sure you spend the time it takes to do a comprehensive keyword research before you begin. As you progress Keyword research will become secondary nature.
Step 4. Join The Right Affiliate Programs
The last step is to find a good product to promote. You can either create your own product or promote affiliate products. If you are just starting out in this business my recommendation is you begin with affiliate marketing.
There are many affiliate networks that have thousands of affiliate programs. These programs cover the total range of marketing niches. Some of the following URL’s is where you can find affiliate programs to promote:
- CJ.com (Commission Junction)
You can also join me and thousands of other successful internet marketers at IMPho.com and use our recommendations on products that we have already tested.
Step 5. Start an Advertising Campaign and Begin Building a Subscriber List
Once you’ve selected your niche, have a list of keywords together and have found the product you want to promote, it’s time to begin.
To begin with I recommend that you use only free traffic techniques. Article Marketing is the best place to start. The reason for this is you can literally get started with very little money.
