Internet Marketing Tips for Beginners

Internet marketing is a great place to carry out business whether you are a service provider making your own living or a retailer selling a particular line of products. It basically involves using various tools and services to let your business prosper to a wider base of potential customers. But how will you do it? How will you make yourself known to the targeted traffic? How will you attract them and keep them interested in buying your products and services?

Set achievable goals

Most individuals get involved in the business without any target goals. For you to succeed you need to lay down achievable short term and long term goals. Even if you reach a certain set objective in due time, try to aim higher.

Find the perfect internet marketing guru

Newbies in internet marketing who don’t have a single clue should consider finding a great internet marketing guru. You should be selective when finding a good one so as to avoid scammers. One way to determine a good guru is by going through the courses they are offering. It’s best to search for gurus that teach proper online marketing techniques like generating traffic, converting traffics into money and so on.

What about your target audience?

Many individuals try to sell products but have no idea who they are marketing to hence ending up to confusion and failure. Using SEO to fully understand your audience will be a great idea. In fact, SEO should be your business or company priority. It’s a profitable and long-term investment that will give you a chance to become more visible on most search engines. It will help you in generating traffic, increase brand awareness, build revenue and ultimately drive sales.

By utilizing reputable SEO practices, you can use search engine data to see what your desired clients are looking for. When you are armed with this type of information, you can set up targeted campaigns and maximize your online presence through SEO pillars like content marketing, onsite optimization, and link acquisition.

Besides, you should use a variety of internet marketing techniques. You should never put all your promotional effort into one specific basket. Instead, use a combination of article marketing, Google AdWords, eBay classified ads, and other internet marketing methods that seem fit to you.

Consider building a list of customers

Basically, building a list of clients and leads is the driving force for your business. The list reflects your business because without customers there is no investing. Once you create a list you can then start sending updates via emails and with links back to your blog. Any relevant information should be received by your listed clients. Aim at establishing a strong relationship with your prospective clients.

Dedication is the key

After setting up an active internet marketing platform, will you be committed into doing it by applying what you learned? Will you have time to do everything according to the marketing laws and commitments? You should not lack urgency and prioritize everything if you want to succeed. Don’t expect to become rich overnight. Everything will turn out productive if you set realistic goals. They should be hard to reach, but attainable.

Conclusion

Maximize every move when it comes to internet marketing if you want to build a business empire! The above tips are a great start, make use of them.

eCom Elites Review – Is Franklin Hatchett’s Course Any Good?

There are so many e-commerce courses out there today and you would be hard pressed to purchase just one of them. It seems that most of the ecom guru’s all have the same strategies but there are some differences in the way they teach and also with their tactics.

Most of these courses has a few things in common. For example, all ecom drop shipping courses will have a Facebook module. Facebook is the best place to sell impulsive buy products like trinkets and stuff. A lot of Shopify drop shipping stores focus on these random products and with the right targeting, people will buy.

Ecom Elites Review

One of the courses that I find stands out from the rest is ecom elites by Franklin Hatchett. I first came across Franklin on Youtube a while back. He seemed like a genuine guy and not some sleazy salesguy that a lot of these Youtubers seem to be these days. The best think is that he provides proof of his earnings by actually logging into his accounts and shows the earning realtime – that is hard to fabricate.

His product is reviewed by many marketers and as an example you can check out this ecom Elites review here.

I won’t go into as much detail so you can just check it out for yourself. What I will say is that has about 10 modules.  These modules are:

  • Sourcing Products
  • Setting up Your Store
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Google
  • Email Marketing
  • Business and Sales
  • Secret Videos
  • Update Videos (includes updates as things change)

The cost of the cours is $197 USD. From what I have heard him say in a recent video is that he is going to be upgrading the course soon. He said the price is going to go up but we will have to see about that. A lot of marketers claim to raise their prices but since he is going to do an update on the course, it’s a real possibility.

I do hope that he includes a money back guarantee though with the new update. Currently he has a 30 day refund policy which is good considering some don’t offer a guarantee at all.

You also get access to a Facebook mastermind group. Here, you can talk with other members in the ecom elites community and discuss common goals, strategies etc. I think this is a great thing to have as people that are struggling can pose questions and get some answers.

A word of caution though – don’t deviate from Franklin’s training. Do what he says, not what someone in the group says. The group should be for support only, not a place to get a different opinion on what Franklin teaches.

Ecom Turbo Theme

Franklin also has a theme called Ecom Turbo that he developed. He doesn’t include it with his ecom course (that would be nice though) but you can make this as a separate purchase.

What’s good about this theme is that the focus is on conversions. That is how the theme was developed. Faced with many marketers is the issue of conversions. If you have traffic to your store and your site is slow, looks ugly, product placement is bad, etc., then your potential customers are going to bail on you.

Email Marketing

Franklin also goes into email marketing and explains the importance on this. You will need an autoresponder and he recommends two of them. He also shows you how to set it up (bonus) for maximum conversions. Don’t ignore an email marketing campaign – it could change your business for the better dramatically.

Conclusion

Ecom Elites is a great option from the more pricey courses out there and Franklin had proven to be an authentic coach. It has our vote as one of the best courses to buy if you want to start a drop shipping Shopify store.

 

 

 

An Honest Conversation

An Honest Conversation

So, you want to be an entrepreneur, do you? That’s probably how you have arrived at our site, looking for answers to many questions that you may have. Becoming an expert online is no easy task and very few succeed. These are the cold hard facts. In fact the numbers are probably lower than what you think when it comes to new people trying to start a business each day.

For those that have other commitments, such as a full time job, the success rate is even lower. You see, late nights, devotion, sacrifice of activities, etc., are all necessary in order to succeed in this business.

Sure, there are some that struck gold and made a lot of money with little effort, but for the most part it takes a lot of time to succeed. For example, I was part of an ecom course, called the “Ecom Success Academy” where on a webinar there was a student who talked about her success. She talked about how she “only” started making money on her 5th product, the others were a bust. Meanwhile, other members have launched over 60 campaigns – that’s 60 products with little or no success.

So if we are going to talk ecom here for a second, you can see that the first person found success just after 5 products. And remember, this is drop-shipping, she did not create these products, they are all bought on Ali-Express for the most part.

So what is it that creates wealth quick for some and takes a lot of time for others? A lot of it has to do with luck I am afraid. For example, if you choose 100 products and do one campaign for each, that’s 100 campaigns, you might have a winner somewhere in that bunch but you will randomly choose which ones to start off with. If you’re lucky, the winner will come soon.

Some of it does depend on research though and seeing trends. Once you are in business this should come naturally so building on the next campaign should technically be easier.
