Everyone wants to know the secret sauce to becoming successful in online marketing. This is your lucky day because I am going to reveal the secret. I’m going to trust you not to go spreading this around. This will be just between us.
OK, the secret to success online is – wait for it:
A little disappointed? Sorry, that’s all there is to it. No matter if you’re a hot shot guru or a beginner.
The key to all this is, “how much time are you spending on Traffic and Conversions”? I think if you checked, it would be a lot less than you think.
How much time are you spending at the following activities?
· Checking email
· Straightening your desk
· Sharpening pencils
There’s a huge difference between being productive and being busy.
Which one do you think makes more money?
Things that fall into the category of making you money:
· Writing articles
· Split tests
· Follow-up calls and emails
· Placing new ads
· New blog posts
· Recording and syndicating ads
Every day when you are doing things ask yourself: “Is this going to get me more traffic or converting that traffic into buyers?” If the answer is no or even maybe, skip that activity and go to things that are a definite yes.
If you can’t track it and measure it, you have no idea what is going on with your site. The master tracker is Justin Christiansen. He started in network marketing in 2002. He became a partner with Mike Dillard. Now he works with clients who pay him up to $60000 to share his marketing knowledge with them.
Let’s talk about tracking.. If you can’t track what you’re doing online you are losing money. You can’t fix something if you don’t know that it needs to be fixed.
So answer these questions:
· How well is my landing page converting?
· How many visitors are coming to my site?
· How many sales did those leads bring me?
· Which source of traffic is bringing me the most leads, the best results?
· How long are people watching my video?
· Where are they looking when they come to the site?
· How long are they on each page?
· Where do I lose them?
All of this really boils down to decisions and your DO or WILL DO mentality. So many people say, “I will do that tomorrow”, and then tomorrow comes and they never get it done. Those people who choose to DO things now are the ones that make the money. Do what others are not willing to do. Decide every night before you go to bed the top 5 things you need to do the next day and write them down. Then do not go to bed the next night until those things are done.
Successful people make decisions. They aren’t always the right decisions but decisions are action and action makes money. Don’t be afraid to make those decisions. Fearing the decision will inhibit your life, your dreams, and your goals.
Say NO to opportunities. This is important; opportunities will come across your desk every day that look great. It is so easy to get sucked into the next big thing and get sidetracked from your goals. People think they can be super human but if you take every opportunity you can’t be productive. Opportunities will come and go. Keep your eye on the prize or the opportunities will break you. Focus on one thing and make that one thing a success. Do this before even thinking about doing something else. Persistence and consistency will get you where you want to go. Spreading yourself too thin will not get you there any faster. With ten things you only get 10% of the results. With 1 thing 100%. Decide to focus on one thing and keep the end in mind.
As you go about working your business things will get rough. There will be times you just want to quit and think “What is it all for?” During these times when things get the toughest that you are the closest to reaching your goal. Having the courage and the drive to push through the pain is where you’re going to find the success you are looking for.
