Online business failure and fears of a crowded market place cause some good people to back away from an online business. These good people may think the Internet is getting too crowded for new entrepreneurs. Perhaps this post can help put those fears at rest.

Consider please these facts:

  1. Internet growth means many, many opportunities exist for anyone wanting to start an online business. More opportunities crop up daily.
  2. Business thrives when solutions meet existing demand. Today’s analytic tools provide outstanding data indicating which niches are good to enter and which are cooling. Remember, your product is determined by the customer want or need it satisfies. Many, many pizza parlors surrounded the Eastern Michigan University when Tom Monaghan and his brother started Domino’s. There product was  not pizza. Domino’s sells convenience.
  3. 95% of people trying to make money on the Internet earn less than $500 a year. That’s because most want to get rich quick. Just about everyone I know working online makes a reasonable amount each month. When I last moved the moving company crew chief shared with me he earns $35,000 a month selling on Amazon and eBay. Then he’d been building his business over six years and was soon leaving his job to work online full-time.
  4. Most people quit working online when they learn there is simply no way you can buy a $27 software program that runs while you sleep and pulls in big bucks to your bank account with you doing nothing.

THE 12 HOTTEST TOOLS FOR CONTENT PROMOTION

Mktg montage Content is key to marketing your online business. No matter how you use the Internet for business marketing always comes into play. You simply have to market your online offerings. Even those with huge mailing lists advise those lists of new posts and product intros. Sharing with social media is a must, if you want to serve your niche tribes. Online marketing is more than advertising. It includes using all Internet media to bring your message to as wide an audience as possible.

That is no different from yesterday’s brix&stix businesses who used grandpa’s media effectively. The difference is today we have instant digital dissemination of our effort. So many of us are solo entrepreneurs and we rely heavily on software tools to get our marketing job done. The following excellent post by William Harris first appeared last week. I pass it along so  like me you can learn about key tools for promoting your content. You have to know the tools available and use them to promote your content. Most fail making money online simply because they do not know how to run an Internet business – these failures simply want to make money fast.

Get in the game to stay in the game.

3 Types of Twitter Ads Getting Blog Traffic

Twitter

Never forget: Traffic is the fuel running your Internet business engine.

Your primary business goal is to create customers. I should say ‘create repeat customers’.  That is how you build a business paying you week after week, month after month, year after year. The key to selling online is traffic. Twitter ads generate good traffic and should be part of your marketing mix.

Anyone can sell something online. I have a revenue stream selling on Amazon and eBay. You can sell something online easily. Try it today. Look around your home or apartment for something of value that you no longer need. Put it on Craig’s List and I bet you sell it in a few days.

I mention Craig’s list because that is the easiest method. Run your ad. Then buyers contact you.  You meet and exchange the item for cash. No checks, please. Cash only.  

Although I and others make money selling on Amazon and other e-commerce sites, my sustainable business takes another direction. However, the process is similar.

In all my Internet businesses I seek to optimize and automate the processes. I use Buffer, a free utility, to post many times a day on social media. That’s automation.

5 Avoidable Blog Mistakes

Blog Traffic

I started this blog site to give useful information to people wanting to make money online. Hard as I try not to, I still make basic blogging mistakes – time and again.

Friday posts give you the weekend to put advice in motion. Along the way I’ll continue to repost guest items that are sure to help  you develop a better Internet money-making approach.

Do You Want To Make Your Blog Successful? There Are 5 Mistakes You Need to Avoid.

The blogosphere is a noisy place. Blogs come and go all the time, so it’s difficult to determine a precise number when someone asks “how many blogs are there?” There is one thing we know for sure: that number is huge. You thought you would get noticed in this crowd by adopting a strategy “write the best content, publish it, and the right people will read it”? That’s your first mistake.
