In order to make money working online and to be successful as an internet marketer and internet entrepreneur, it is imperative that one completes income producing activities on a daily basis and does so habitually. Only by consistently completing tasks that have a positive impact on your overall marketing process and subsequently lead to sales being made will you be able to make money working online. This seems like a simple concept however the vast majority who are failing do not complete income producing activities on a consistent and habitual basis.
In order to make money working online, you must understand the marketing process and then know what types of activities to do in order to have the overall marketing process run effectively and result in sales. The entire objective when we’re marketing online is to drive targeted traffic back to our site in enough quantity to convert at a profitable rate. This is a one sentence overview of the overall marketing process. Our objective then becomes to do tasks on a daily basis (what I like to call income producing activities) that make the overall marketing process run effectively.
To make money working online, it is imperative that you have a steady flow of targeted people coming across your site. Therefore people should spend anywhere from 60% – 75% of their time marketing and focused on driving targeted consumers back to their site(s). Things we can do on a daily basis that allow us to get this traffic include writing articles, doing press releases, posting classified ads, doing some forum marketing, setting up PPC campaigns, creating videos and posting them to sites like YouTube and yahoo video, creating squidoo lenses, creating blogs, and using myspace to name a few. These are all income producing activities that good marketers make it habit to engage in on a regular basis. If you commit to doing some of the above mentioned methods on a daily basis and do so consistently, traffic will always be flowing to your site. The fact is a lot of people struggle because they don’t get enough targeted traffic. They don’t get enough traffic because they don’t do the activities that result in people getting driven back to their site(s). This will not be a problem for you if you consistently spend time implementing some of the marketing methods we’ve just discussed.
We have stated to make money working online you should spend about 60% – 75% of your time marketing and focused on getting targeted consumers to your site. The remaining amount of time should be spent following up with prospects, providing any necessary support to your customers or business partners, optimizing your site and/or your campaigns, and dealing with anything else that has an impact on the effectiveness of your overall marketing process. This should be how you spend 25% – 40% of your time. Exactly how much time you spend dedicated to specific parts of your overall marketing process will vary on your individual situation.
The key to make money working online is to complete income producing activities on a daily and habitual basis. So many people who are struggling waste time doing things that have zero impact on the effectiveness of their overall marketing process. People who are successful make it a habit complete tasks and activities that have a direct positive impact and enhance the effectiveness of there overall marketing process. This is what truly separates people who are able to make money working online and those who fail to do so.
