10 Steps of Effective Online Marketing

Postby annalaurabrown » Wed Dec 31, 2008 10:05 am

Make sure that the website you are promoting is designed attractively and in such a way that it will get results. You should include your picture, full name, phone number, email and a brief story about yourself at minimum. Is it easy to read and use? Ask for an opinion on this from some friends and family members as well as from some readers on some message boards. Take their advice and make sure that you have a site that is worth sending traffic to.

Create a way for your site visitors to opt in to an email campaign or newsletter list. Make sure that you give your subscribers a reason to join your list and that you offer them high quality, useful and interesting content.

Start a blog. Post to your blog at least three times a week and make the content useful and interesting to your readers. Give them a reason to come back and visit your blog on a regular basis. Offer them the chance to subscribe via RSS. Follow one general theme with your posts rather than just a bunch of random thoughts or information.

Publish a newsletter. Decide how often you are going to release your newsletter and stay consistent with it. Write interesting articles and include content from other writers as well. Make it easy for people to subscribe from your website.

Do a thorough analysis of the meta data, keywords, title tags, alt tags and description of your website. Make sure that you are making it easy for your site to get indexed because of the way it is laid out and search engine optimized.

Do not be afraid to use video. Video marketing is increasing in popularity. People love putting a face and a voice with a person. At the very least make a video introducing yourself.

Get involved with at least two or three social networking sites. Choose the ones which you feel best serve your purposes and where you can find the most like minded people.

Pay attention to what other internet marketers and successful business owners are doing online. Copy their ideas with your own creative twist. If they are successful it is for a reason so take notice of what they are doing and make note of any ideas that you can also implement with your business.

Work on your online marketing plan daily. The key to internet marketing success is working your plan every day and on a consistent basis.

Create a clear written plan of your goals for your online marketing and keep track of where you have posted, the articles you have written, the blogs where you have posted etc.
Follow these steps and your online marketing will be effective and successful.

Thanks for sharing such useful tips with us! So many people jump from opportunity to opportunity because the last one didn't instantly make them money when all it takes is put a system like this into place and just keep repeating the process for whatever niche you want to target.

This part was my favorite though, because I always forget to keep track of what I've already done.

Most of all

Do not Panic! Normally it happens that after a week or so people tend to give up since they don't see any results but you need to understand that success doesn't come overnight..Wall of China or the Taj Mahal was not built in one day or a took time and labor to get the name today..
So keep doing what you are feeling right and success will follow you..

Internet Marketing is a ongoing process not just a tool to expect results.

Thanks for the valuable tips. Another Internet marketing tip is to go for Ezine advertising – as this can deliver your targeted traffic to your website. Make sure to pick the right Ezines, and the right ads – your benefits are sure to be enormous! The main advantage of this Internet marketing tip is that the Ezines are delivered to a highly select group of readers, and focus on a very narrow topic
