2 Daily Things To Do To Have A Thriving Internet Business

How often do you test things out in your internet business? Is it frequent? Are you constantly finding yourself tweaking your website and changing your email marketing sequence to test which approach will yield you the most results? If so, then obviously you’re doing something wrong in your business.

You shouldn’t need to constantly tweak and update small, technical things about your business. Everyday you should know what you need to be doing to promote your site. And this is how you make your business predictable and profitable over the long term. And I want to shed some light on this topic.

In this lesson, I’m going to go over some of the things that you should be doing to have the successful internet business that you are looking for. If you’re tired of not seeing any sales in your email inbox, you should know that it can all be changed. But it has to be done one step at a time. Here’s the first thing that you should be doing to have a thriving internet business:

1) Put yourself on a daily marketing schedule

True success in your business will ultimately depend on how well you’re able to follow simple step-by-step instructions. If you can lay out a daily marketing plan for your business, you will see that marketing and getting traffic is incredibly easy. Getting sales is ultimately a marketing job. Without the good marketing, it’s going to be hard to see any kind of results in your business.

This is very important because you only have so much time in a day to do marketing. If you have a full time job, and you started your internet business so that the income could replace your current job, then everyday you come home from work, you will have a set amount of time to market your business before you go to bed.

Because of this, it’s important that you use your time wisely. Stick with strategies that will deliver the best results, and if you’re doing some advertising, make sure that you’re breaking even, or making a profit. If you’re losing money on each new customer that you get, then you will want to put together a strong backend marketing plan that will help you to recoup your loss, and help you to turn a profit on the next sale that you make from your customer. Here’s another thing you should be doing if you want to have a thriving online business:

2) Build a list

Building an email list is paramount in terms of your online success. These will be the best group of people who will buy from you. If you just lead a lot of people to your sales description page, a lot of them won’t buy – in comparison to how many sales you could have made by building an email list.

They say that the money is in the list, and I totally agree. And the more subscribers you get, the more money you will make over the long term.

Take these 2 tips and put them into use today.

Good luck with marketing online.

Article Marketing – My Insider Secrets To Getting Explosive Traffic From Articles

You do get a lot of traffic initially when your article is posted on directories, but the key to long-term traffic is to use the right keywords in your articles.

The visitor rate per article won’t be as hot after a while, but with 500 articles or a few thousand articles, it won’t be a big deal because some of your articles will get traffic from the search engines, and also from the search bar in the article directory itself, if you’ve done some good keyword optimization in your title, article keywords, description and actual article content.

You do want to get out as many articles as you initially, then once your traffic has become stable, add in articles occasionally.

You can also submit your articles to other article directories. If you haven’t used article submission services before, you can add that to the mix. That’s one more way of leveraging your articles.

You can also use your articles as press releases, and even for classified ads. I haven’t seen many people post articles on classified ads. Your article will stand out as a powerful advertorial amongst the sea of hard-selling ads.

Personally I prefer writing the articles myself, it can be hard to find a writer whose writing style matches the brand of your business. You can, however, find some good writers on sites like Elance and Get A Freelancer. Simply hire a good one to do your projects for the long-term if you are not interested in writing them.

Those are just some tips for getting leads and sales from articles. Do keep them in your mind as you go about your daily marketing activities. Quantity and quality equals power. There is no black or white.
