What kind of marketing are you doing in your internet business? For most people, when it comes to online marketing, things get extremely complicated. They feel that marketing on internet is harder than calculus, more difficult to understand than Einstein's Theory of Relativity, and much more tedious than the day job that they currently have.
But you don't have to spend a lot of time and money putting a successful internet marketing campaign together... all you really need is the right advice and guidance from someone who's already "been around the block". The first thing that you should analyze when it comes to promoting your website is the manner in which you're marketing your website.
Are you using brand advertising? If so, why? I'm willing to bet that the reason you're reading this article today is because brand advertising isn't working for you. Instead of using brand advertising, you should use a different form of marketing that is radically different than anything else out there.
What is this "radical" marketing idea? Well it's simple. It's called "direct response marketing". With direct response marketing, whoever visits your website either buys from you (or opt into your email newsletter), or they don't. So it's either your website produces good results for you now (right away), or it doesn't. You don't have time or money to mess with ineffective strategies.
Brand advertising is incredibly ineffective. Let the big companies who have millions of dollars to spend on advertising do brand advertising. You want to focus on instant results, and direct response marketing. I mean look at the name... "direct response"... doesn't it suggest that it focuses on methods that you do directly, that either generates a response or it doesn't?
You ready have to get deep with your online marketing efforts. Luckily on the internet, you can test new web pages and new web layouts, and see which one is working for you right away. In the offline world, you would have to wait months to see if a magazine ad or a direct mail campaign actually made you money.
However on the internet, everything is quick and easy. You will want to test out direct response in your business right away, or else lose a lot of money in the process. There are many direct response strategies that you can use in your online business. But there are so many that I don't have time to distill here in today's lesson.
Make sure your website is designed to either generate a sale, or designed to generate a new lead. Have your email auto responder ready to go if you want to generate a lead, and then start emailing your opt-in subscribers every 3 days. Soon after you have amassed thousands of subscribers, you will start to see sales coming in on a daily basis. And I know this is something that you want.
Be sure to take these direct response marketing tips and use them in your online business today. I assure you that it will be more than worth it.
Good luck with using direct response marketing in your internet business today.
