Basic Online Marketing

What is the first thing you should learn? I believe the first thing that you should learn is simple, finding a hungry audience.

You don’t want to promote something that no one out there wants. If there is no one to market to than there is no reason promoting a product in that field. Fortunately though it seems like there are so many different niches out there you can find something to be profitable in, it may take some looking around though.

Then comes choosing a product or service. This is what you’ll be promoting so you must make sure it is legitimate and can stand behind what is offered.

From here will come targeted traffic which is most important. This is something that I did not understand much when I first started online. I thought that I needed millions of visitors going to my website daily but this is not how it works. You’re not going to be successful if all you want is a ton of visitors, you want red-hot targeted visitors going to your site.

The reason why you want these types of visitors is because they know exactly what they want and they are more inclined to buy your offer. Why would you want people on your website that are most likely not going to buy anything at all?

From here, you would be bringing them to your sales page or giving them further information and capturing their name and or e-mail address so you can continually follow up with them and build your list.

Building your list is highly important simply because these are people you can continually market to for years to come if they have trust in you. Trust is going to take you a long way on the Internet. There is so much junk out there that you have to separate yourself from it and become better than the rest and better than your competition.

These are some ways to get started on the Internet marketing and core principles that you must follow on a daily basis if you want to see success and stay on top of your game.

Business Basics for Online Women Business Owners

Building a business from scratch is a very exciting time in the eyes of a solo entrepreneur. Usually it is something you have been thinking of for quite some time, not something where you woke up one day saying, “Wow, today I am going to start my own business!”

It’s a journey building and sustaining an online business but I can personally tell you after 25 years of owning my own business it is well worth it. I can also share with you that you will be much better situated if you take the time to do your homework and your due diligence in the early days of your business.

Also, let me toss in here that even if you have been in business for awhile, I find some women got theirs going so quickly with clients right out the gate, that when I came to business basics they kept saying; “I’ll get to that part later, right now I have clients (or I am concentrating on building my website)”. The problem with this is ‘later’ never seems to come.

If this is you, and you have been in business for awhile, please still be sure you have all your basics covered and the pieces in place. There is always time to correct what you may have missed, but I suggest you do it sooner rather than later. This is your money and your future finances at stake here.

So, what are the business basics I keep mentioning?

• Business checking account 
• Business checks 
• Business credit and/or debit card 
• Tax ID number 
• Business phone 
• Incorporate your business to protect your personal assets 
Malpractice insurance 
• Good accountant 
• Good lawyer

Don’t let this list overwhelm you, but use it as a guidance checklist. If you have all these in place, wonderful, if not I can’t encourage you enough to get these items completed.

Not only is it because of your own sense of business due diligence, but it will help you out at tax time and……it’s the law. It’s vital you know your rights and responsibilities when it comes to business ownership. This is not rocket science and there is a lot of free and helpful information available.

My coaches request: If there are some of these items incomplete, please get yourself into action within the next week and start crossing completed items off until they are all check marked ‘done.’
