Internet Marketing is a kind of selling. And believe it or not: you are a born sales rep, as we are all sales persons. Let’s take an instant to take this into account. If you are in employment, the fact that you got a career against tens, or even hundreds of other applicants bears proof of the fact that your selling pitch with the human resources manager was the best amongst the rest of the candidates.
A friend of mine needed 36 months of grinding before his breakthrough. But he finally understood that he was a sales rep, and that he could sell just anything if he just tried. Now he has many loyal customers who buy whatever he refers or creates simply because they know he is trustworthy.
This friend of mine makes his money from creating and selling eBook (PDF) files. Since affiliates usually start an aggressive promotional campaign before the launch of your product, customers will not be struggling to access your website if the technique is available. As a result of the traffic snarl, many potential customers may give up the idea of wanting to buy the product as a result of hassle incurred. Thus, it is critical to have a good idea of the traffic expected, so your website is prepared for the high level of visitors.
I didn’t create anything for a long time, but I had my blog, and I was writing articles everyday trying to rank my blog for a number of keywords and phrases. I pointed out that making money online was going to be more of a challenge than I thought it might be, but I wasn’t being thwarted I would persist…I would win!
One Big Mistake – Not Building a List:
This has become the biggest mistake Internet Marketers make. If you are not building a list from the beginning, then each visitor that leaves your page without buying anything, can be a wasted possibility to gain something from that visit. At least if you get their eMail address you have the chance to sell to them again, and again, and again.
