Marketing on the Internet is a skill that does not happen over night.
It can take years to learn what to do and what not to do in internet
marketing. Many places found on the internet, only provide the success
stories of the product. Sites never tell you the trial and errors it
took them to learn what did and did not work.
Did you know in pay per
click marketing alone only a small percent of the people who use it,
actually make money. The other large, failing population, is how the
search engines generate a lot of their profits.
What does the small
profit group have over the large, failing group? Knowledge about what to
do and what not to do. Hopefully after reading this, you will be able
to join the small, successful group and kick the large group to the
Do research on what you are trying to market on the internet.
Do not assume you know what people are searching for and use that as
your baseline. Do broaden your techniques. Don’t stick with one thing
like pay per click marketing, open up your doors to articles, blogging,
press releases, videos, etc. Do make sure the product is worth the cost.
Don’t assume that because something supposedly sales for $100 it is
actually worth that much because the value of something to you isn’t the
same value for somebody else.
Do make sure the return on investment
is worth the cost. Don’t assume if you can sell 2 items that you will
come out ahead because they are worth $ amount of money. If it takes you
20 hours of work to make one $20 sell means you are wasting your time
even trying to promote the item.
Lastly, do watch your spending
costs. Don’t spend more than you can make up the cost on. If your paying
$5 a click and you rack up a 100 clicks and don’t sell a single product
that night. Now your in the whole $500 because you wouldn’t limit your
campaign budget to only $20 a day to see if the product would convert.
importantly, do follow your gut. If something seems too good to be true
or feels like it’s not going to work then stop whatever you’re trying
to do and start over with something new.
