Anyone that has known me even for a short time knows that I am a “Take Action” kind of gal, especially when it comes to Internet Marketing. There is nothing I dislike more than when someone comes to me and claims that all Internet Marketing programs are a waste of time and I find out that they didn’t take any action to ensure their success. Truth is most people I know that quit whatever Internet Marketing program they were in, did NOT full take action. Sure they probably played at it, but I’d bet they didn’t regularly attend company meetings or trainings, didn’t have a business plan laid out and watched more television than they spent time working on their business.
Internet Marketing is not synonymous with porch sitting
Just because Internet Marketing work is done primarily on the internet, probably from your home, does not mean you have all day to laze around the house and do nothing. In fact quite the opposite is true when you are first getting up and running. Like any new business you have to put time and effort into it to make it grow. Sure once you have reached a comfortable level of success you will find that you can only work an hour a day and maintain your income. BUT you have to do the time and “walk the line” of building success before you get there.
Internet Marketing is a real business and must be treated like one. As I have posted in earlier blogs there are certain steps one must take to ensure success. The internet is a like the Grand Canyon…it goes on and on for miles, both in height, length and width. It would be almost impossible for you to see an object at the bottom of the canyon unless it had something to make it stand out and even then you might not see what you were looking for the first few times you glanced that way.
That is where the work begins in Internet Marketing...you have to get Noticed and to do that you have to put yourself, your brand, your product out there for others to see and THEN get them to notice you. A website, fan page, blog or social media account is nothing without action being taken on it daily. To the search engines a site that isn’t producing new things, on a regular basis, does not exist. Its like trying to find one piece of paper in a floor covered with thousands of them.
To get noticed you must stop being a spectator
I mean think about it, when you put a search term into the search engine the search engine goes looking for things, papers as it were, that produce the desired results. When you get those results, even if it says it found 345,000 results, you have probably never looked at the results beyond the first two pages.
Therefor you need to take action: Act like you are working your own business. Find your “Why”, your purpose and motivation to keep you motivated while you work. Create a business plan to guide you so you stop wasting time deciding what to do. Write blog posts or Facebook Notes and then put the link out there for others to see in places that pertain to you and your goals. These are just a few of the steps you need to take to ensure you are not being a spectator. Once you stop Sitting on the Porch I think you will find that your business gets up and meets you in the yard, ready to play.
