I’m sure you are aware that there is no shortage of people rushing to get their piece of the internet pie. There are already millions of online sites and businesses in existence and now here you are in the middle of all the noise. Standing above the crowd is the only way to succeed in this tough business.
This is not such an easy thing to do as it does require work, but the basic principles are very simple to learn. Without these foundational pillars I’ve seen marketers here today and gone tomorrow. Consistency is one of the keys to your success.
Now with all the ways you can promote and get out there, you must understand a few basics that I’m going to outline here. I’ll give you a quick boxing analogy that may help sum it all up.
1. Knowledge is your best defense. By educating yourself and learning to eat, sleep and breathe your craft you will be more efficient and effective when executing your game plan. Make sure you are defending your self against poor marketing methods and you are properly leveraging your time.
2. Discipline is going to be your steady left jab. This is your consistent focus on a task that allows you to wear out your competition in the marketplace. By staying focused and disciplined you will get the most out of everything you do and your energy will not be displaced. This is very important.
3. Credibility is your powerful right hook. This is where business happens in the market. Its when someone has been adequately convinced that your product or service is of value. If people don’t like or trust the vendor or anything about your company they will refrain from doing business with you. This is crucial to having success online.
Because credibility seems to be the cohesive quality that brings it all together at the point of sale you must stay focused on building this over time. Presenting yourself as a professional is just not enough anymore. You must possess leadership and a command for your subject matter that makes customers feel that you bring value to their lives.
One of the best ways to do this is to constantly share new ideas, strategies and cutting edge techniques with those you encounter. Present fresh new content and you will be seen as a trusted adviser which will increase your sales and conversion ratios tremendously.
There is way too much competition on the internet for you to expect things to come to you. If you want to succeed online you must be willing to stretch yourself and go the extra mile. People will appreciate you and look to you for leadership and direction. Once this starts to happen thats when business growth really starts to accelerate.
