3 Winning Strategies for Internet Marketing

Internet marketing can be both a blessing and a curse. Winning the internet marketing game, one need solid strategies.

There are some amazing opportunities involved with online marketing, however there are some pitfalls and huge time and money wasters.

Trying to decide how to strategically market your product or service (or yourself) on the internet can be overwhelming. There is a myriad of marketing possibilities to choose from, and many more great strategies are being offered almost daily. How can an internet marketer decide on the best strategic marketing plan that works for their business?

Taking On Internet Marketing with Three Strategies

Internet marketing is much like that age old question. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. You don’t try to go for the whole thing in one bite. First you learn how to make $1000, then $10,000. With the skills you have to make $1000 or $1000, you are able to make $100,000. 

Sometimes people dive into internet marketing and want to do everything all at once. However, the opposite is the best route. Start out small and build from there. In fact, I’d say that if you concentrated with just three strategies you would have a viable, profitable, and long lasting internet marketing career.

Be an Active Social Networker

Social networking, or social media marketing, has taken the internet by storm and isn’t going to go away. There’s a reason why this is so popular. It’s the way people have been successfully marketing since the beginning of time. People interacting with others just works. And if you are recommending good problem solving products in social settings, you have a great chance of success.

Again, you need to take this slow. Many people will run out and sign up for every single network they can find. While, this does have merit, in the long run, when you are just getting started you should concentrate on one or just a few.

Twitter, Facebook.com, and Instagram are great places to start and learn the nuances of social networking.

Be a Consistent Blogger

This could be labelled as social networking, but blogging is a strategy all on its own. Blogging is really content marketing. You are creating and publishing interesting and useful content in an effort to drive traffic to your blog. You don’t have to be political or a coffee shop addict to be a blogger. All you need to do is offer original content that is useful on a consistent basis.

If you are into affiliate marketing in the sports niche, then you would write about sports. If you’re in the network marketing niche, then you create content about network marketing. If you’re providing a service like graphic design, then you offer design advice and even free samples or mock-ups of what you’ve already done. It’s not just about putting up a new blog with a bunch of AdSense blocks and Clickbank links.

The reason blogging is an important strategy to concentrate on is because it does one thing very good. Keeping a consistent blog establishes you as an authority and expert.

Without a place to offer continually updated content, free materials, serve as an online portfolio, and a place for people to interact (via comments and linking), you don’t have much of a foothold to build for the future. You can get started pretty easily with free blogging platforms such as Blogger.com or WordPress.com.

Build A List of Interested Buyers

There has been a saying on the internet for several years now that still rings just as true today as it did then. “The money is in the list!” However, there are still a lot of people starting out as affiliate or internet marketers who don’t have an opt-in list at all, and didn’t plan too!

Building an opt-in list is a great way to not only sell products and services, but it also provides another way to connect and interact with people who visit your website. The key to the success of an opt-in list, however, lies in consistency and usefulness of the information you provide.

Provide your subscribers with relevant information, with your personality thrown in there, and you have a winning combination. People will continue to subscribe and be active in clicking on links.

Concentrate on these 3 Internet Marketing Strategies and you have a winning formula. Take some to learn and master these strategies to achieve great results. When you learn Internet marketing strategy, ensure that what you learn enables you to design, develop and implement a well-balanced marketing strategy. It should include both short-term and long-term strategies which will be able to drive a steady stream of targeted traffic to your sites.

Concentrate on finding a they best way to make these three strategies work for you. From there, begin to build a foundation for your business. Social networking, blogging, and a solid opt-in list are the strategies that will get you started on solid ground.
