What to Consider for 2018 to Grow Your Internet Business

 

I’m serious about my Internet business. There are several people I follow online. Some I even pay for mentoring. One reliable resource is Gauher Chaudhry. He’s located in the Ontario province of Canada. Gauher’s specialty is banner advertising.

I work hard generating organic traffic. I also use paid advertising. SEO and other organic traffic generating tactics go only so far.

The idea is always ‘buy for a nickle and sell for a dime”. That along with understanding the purpose of business is creating customers demands we invest (spend) on our business.

Many I know fail their Internet business responsibility because they’d rather spend on shiny things. Those shiny lures may be a software program promising riches, or plugins auto creating popup ads, or some other nifty process to make you rich and your work easier.

However, you get a greater return via advertising than many of the shiny things we buy. Plan your Internet business is what we hear often. Part of that planning is allocating advertising dollars. As little as $5 a day gets you started. I believe you’d give me $5 if I promised to give you $10 in return.

That’s what business is about.

I buy many tools. Too many in the opinion of my friends. But I buy and test a product before I sell it. That goes for software. Hard 3 dimensional items I sell online like fishing reels or CPAP equipment I often test in a store. There’s nothing like handling a product and learning if you can put your faith in it.

I buy some other products I sell on my sites. Too many to mention here. The thing is I want to stand behind my products. I’m also very curious about quality and delivery. I want my customers, even though I rarely get to know them, to have a solid buying experience. That includes having products deliver what they promise in landing pages and upsell offers.

Factors Driving Affiliate Marketing Growth

Affiliate Marketing canstockphoto6139902

 

Although key factors drive affiliate marketing growth in the coming years; online business failure and fears of a crowded market place cause some good people to back away from an online business, especially affiliate marketing.

These good people may think the Internet is getting too crowded for new entrepreneurs. Perhaps growth information in 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. Consider today’s Cyber Monday sales – greater than last year. Major retailers from Walmart to The Home Depot are driving sales via their web sites. More people purchase on line than ever before. And they become returning customers.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. Most fail on the Internet because they want to make fast money online. The objective is starting and running an Internet based business. 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. He’d been building his business over six years and was soon leaving his job to work online full-time.
  5. 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. For online money-making success understand this: success knows you are starting a business. The Internet is not just another J-O-B opportunity. Be prepared to learn necessary lessons that create sustainable income via the Internet.

Is Social Media Good for Business?

social media 3

So you have a website you promote vigorously through paid advertising. Do you also need social media for online money-making success?

Yes, you do.

Social media is definitely good for business promotion. How often do you click on paid ads compared to considering offers shared on social media? Paid advertising value is not denied. However, when you provide social media content that’s shared your offer taps into a buyer’s psyche differently.

People just react differently to paid ads than they do when something is shared. Shared social media is more benign and friendly. Think of it as a friend speaking directly to you. A friend has a different tone than a commercial on TV or radio.

Consider TV ads with actors people like and speaking in a conversational tone. My unscientific research tells me target demographics listen more to an ad with a likable person talking to the viewer directly.

I don’t know how communications are taught these days, but when I was in school we were instructed to speak to one person when on camera or behind a microphone. Have a mental picture of that one person and speak directly to him/her.

If you’ve developed a profile of your ideal customer it includes a mental image. Some actually write a page or two describing their ideal customer. That person’s likes, dislikes, lifestyle, ambition, goals, social situation and so on. Many include physical descriptions, as well.

Your spoken and written voice must speak to that ideal customer. It’s true people do business with people they like. Your fans like you and the information you provide. Keep that in mind when you create content. Focus on your ideal customer.
