Just the same way we have basic laws governing virtually everything on earth, so do we have basic thing which should be done enable us have success online. It does not imply that you can not make any success at all without them, but the truth is that your success will be limited without them. These four basic things include the following:
1. You should have your own website
Your website is your online Identity. It is what you will be promoting and it is also where people will be visiting to know more about you. So you should note that a blog is not enough. Having a website gives professionalism. So endeavor to build a website of your own.
2. Create your own product
The key to success online is to create and sell your own products. This is very important especially for long term success. You can easily create your own product especially if you are into information marketing you can chose a niche and outsource it or buy “private label Rights” materials and use them to create a product without even writing.
3. Build your own email list
Your business will ever remain unstable until you build a strong email list. Infact, the mail list is the backbone of your business. So don’t play with it. You need to have an opt in email list. That is a database of names an email addresses of people that have done business with you or asked for more information from you in the past. This can be done effectively using “an auto responder”.
4. Build as much Traffic as you can.
You should avoid a situation where you build your products and sit on them. That is not promoting them. You can get traffic through “Article marketing” Ads (Facebook, Google etc); Forums, magazines, free e-book creation and distributions etc.
It is important you understand each point mentioned here clearly. If you don’t, I will advice you to try and learn how they work. If you do these things, I can assure you that smile will come to your face.
To your success!
