It’s All In The Campaign Design

The first step in successful internet marketing is having a strategy in advance. The majority of individuals will complete infrequent strategies that are not created using detailed approaches. These types of online marketing strategies hardly ever produce successful results.

What makes a good strategy? It’s determined by what the goals are, what kind of target audience is being dealt with, and a good call to action. The planning stage is also where metrics should be chosen to measure the campaign’s progress and overall impact.

Strategic planning is also when smart marketers pick the media streams they’ll focus on and set an overall creative tone for how the campaign will be carried out. Once this plan is in place, you will be able to fully monitor your marketing efforts.

Try Is A 4 Letter Word

4 letter words. You know, the ones we’re not supposed to say in public because they are offensive. You know the ones I’m talking about. They start with the letter “S” or “D” for “F.” We are advised against saying them because they are words that have no real business being in our public vocabulary. In fact a comedian once had a skit of cool 4 letter words you couldn’t say on TV. Let me introduce you to another 4 letter word you should not use.

Try.

I know, I know, that’s only 3 letters, but it is as damaging as the 4 letter words.

Try is the word you use when you are blowing someone off. “I’ll try to get you the information tonight.”
Try is the word you use when you don’t want to go somewhere. “I’ll try and make it to the event.”
Try is the word you use when you really don’t want to learn something. “I’ll try and learn it, but that’s too hard for me.”

As you can see, Try is the same thing as No. People who say they are going to “Try” are not committing to anything. They are simply giving themselves a reasonable excuse to not do something. They’ve given themselves a chance to maintain the status quo, and not make any changes in their life. They’ve told themselves, “I can’t do that, why should I even TRY?

Quiz time: Which of these responses is more appealing to you?
I’ll try to respond to your message as soon as I can.
I will respond to your message shortly!

Obviously the second one. That response indicates that the person will get back to you. Not that they will ‘try’ to do it. If you see that, your brain has already decided that they are not going to reply. If you are the marketer looking for leads, that’s the worst thing you can say to a potential customer/lead/buyer.

It’s also the worst thing you can say to yourself. Don’t “Try” to get a system in place, just do it. Obviously it’s going to take some time and you will have to be actively working on it. Don’t just “Try” to do it. Just go ahead and do it.

Why? Because “Try” should be added to your 4 letter word list, and not used in business.

No Recruiting Required

no recruiting I was on Facebook the other day and saw this post in my newsfeed.

Let’t talk about this for a moment, shall we?

It’s bad enough that the Network Marketing/Direct Sales/MLM industry gets a bad rap from people. Though when I see posts like this I can understand why. If there really is no recruiting required why are they posting it to Facebook trying to recruit people? In reality they probably need to get people to join them so they can made extra income.

Other things in the post that scream ‘scam’ to me, and possibly others …

Make Real Money Very Easy
Not MLM
Not Network Marketing
Leave The Crap Scam Ads

Would you like to know one reason why the network marketing industry gets a bad rap? Posts like this are a very big part of the reason why.

If you are in network marketing, direct sales or MLM, then please don’t post things like this. You are not only hurting yourself, but the entire industry.

Why You Should Get Started In Attraction Marketing

Why Attraction MarketingAnyone with a job can relate to getting a paycheck. Every time you look at the paycheck you silently think to yourself, “I’m worth more than that.” Indeed you are. In fact most people would argue they are not making near what their time, experience and ability is worth. Consider that job losses, layoffs and more are possible, one begins to ponder the idea of working for themselves.

When you get into the world of attraction marketing you are, in fact, working for yourself. You are the one who controls your future and you alone will dictate what your value is worth. However, with attraction marketing you have to attract people to you in order for them to buy your goods or services. If you do not attract people to you, then no one will know who you are and thus people won’t be purchasing items from you.

You now see that attraction marketing could let you work for yourself, but you also see that to get started, you need to find a way to attract people to you. I’m going to share with you my tips for getting started in the world of attraction marketing.

Provide Value

Think about the grocery store you go to, where you buy your clothes or even the cars you buy. In each of these cases you are purchasing these items from an entity that provides you with value. This is a key point in attraction marketing. You have to give value to people in order for them to be attracted to you. How you give out that value, though, is sometimes difficult to figure out.

Giving It Away

Yes, there are times where you simply want to give away something of value. For example, this blog post could be considered giving away something of value. While reading the article you are getting tips on how to get started in attraction marketing, and have not had to pay anything to me to read it. Thus, I’m giving it away. There are many things you can ‘give away’ that are valuable.

  • Marketing Instructional Videos
  • Blog Posts
  • Posting helpful information to social media

There are more, of course, but these are some ideas to get you started.

Funded Proposal

A funded proposal is a marketing plan where advertise an inexpensive item to your target market for the purposes of money.  You could lead with a free product, such as a video training session or a blog post. When your visitor sees that you have something of value, they are more likely to buy something from you. If you give excellent value and the products that you are advertising for sale are valuable as well, then you could make a small chunk of change by simply marketing these items.
