10 Great Tips To Improve Your Internet Marketing Business

Whether you’re a seasoned online marketer or just starting out in the Internet Marketing field, there’s always room for improvement of your marketing strategies and techniques.

You see, we’re always quite busy with what we intent to achieve. So much, that we don’t have time to lean back and think about WHAT exactly we’re doing right now.

It doesn’t matter if you’re successfully or still waiting to make your first dollar, there is always room for improvement.
Here are 10 great tips to improve your Internet Marketing business.

  1. Use A Plan
    Always! In fact, you probably have many plans. Write them down, all of them.
    Then, depending on your experience as an Internet marketer, select the one that seems the easiest to achieve, or the most profitable or the one you just love to do.
    Write down why you selected your favorite plan. And write down your experiences, good and bad, as you are trying to achieve it. Thus you will build a knowledge center for yourself that you can use as future reference.

    Always follow your plan. It will keep you focused on tasks at hand and will lead you to success, one way or another.

  2. Set Goals
    Goal setting should always be part of your plan. Set challenging goals, but stay realistic. A hundred consecutive baby steps are easier to manage and achieve then one big project. They keep you motivated and moving in the right direction.
    It always amazes me how many people have problems setting goals. Here’s an amazingly cheap and great resource that will help you setting them up.
  3. Outsource
    Outsource as much as you can. Yes, you can do many things yourself, but time is your most precious asset. Certainly on the Net, because there’s a lot of competition and they may beat you if your projects take too long.
    Also, spending too much time by doing everything yourself, demotivates. Especially if your doing things you don’t like or aren’t good at. You’d better spend your time well doing important things, like marketing your products.
  4. Network
    You probably know the adage: “it’s not what you know, it’s WHO you know”. Therefore, you definitely should network with other Internet marketers. It’s difficult to try to succeed completely on your own. Don’t do that. Instead, network with other online marketers and with people within each of your niches.
  5. Be Positive
    A lot of Internet marketers neglect the mental side of success. If you really want to succeed you have to be mentally ready for that and being positive will certainly help. Don’t permit yourself to get depressed or to consider quitting.
  6. Believe in Yourself
    Believing in yourself is a really big part of always being positive. You are destined to fail If you don’t believe in yourself. Yes, there will always be people who are better than you, more skilled, smarter or whatever, but remember, there are also thousands of people who can learn from you. If you DO believe in yourself then, in time, you will succeed.
  7. Customer First
    If you always put the customer first, you will ‘automagically’ improve your Internet marketing business. Remember, you wouldn’t generate any money online without people paying you money. Your customers do just that. So, always put them first. Challenge yourself to get more out of them.
  8. Stay Focused
    You absolutely need to stay focused to achieve success with your Internet marketing business. That doesn’t mean you always have to work on one project at a time. Sometimes a little distraction is a positive thing, so if you’re working on 2 different projects, that may be ok.
    Staying focused just means following the plan, as discussed above. You shouldn’t allow yourself to get distracted while you’re working.
  9. Never Stop Learning
    A biggie! To improve your Internet Marketing business you should never stop learning. You may feel you know everything about certain topics, but you can always learn more. Remember that knowledge is thriving power that will lead to even more success.
  10. Take Time for Yourself
    The last great tip to enhance your Internet Marketing business is to take time for yourself.
    Believe me, I was blown away in April this year when I was hospitalized for immediate open heart surgery.
    Everything stopped. Business, family life, everything.
    Fortunately I recovered (physically that is, the mental part definitely is another issue!), but it could have ended otherwise. And I wasn’t even aware of any problem!
    Don’t let that happen to you. Don’t simply work all the time. Be sure you step away from Internet Marketing so you can recharge your battery.

That’s it! Ten great tips to supercharge your Internet Marketing business.
Most likely you already follow some of them. If so, see if you can add some more. They will lead you to success with your online business.

    Great post – I think the one thing that I struggle with the most is taking time out for myself.

    I completely understand the point that you are trying to make and was in a similar situation about two months ago when I was hospitalized (fortunately for me it was not nearly as serious as yours – hope you are doing okay now and best of luck with your recovery)

    The point you made here really hit home for me that I should stop working 16h/day (maybe should make it 12 :-)) and just take that extra time for myself and make sure I put my health first. The other tips are great as well.

    Another important point is that there should be no lack in consistency. That is the effort should never be halted and always promoted. A gap of say 2 or 3 days can really throw you out of scene.

    One of the things I have had really had to rely on in my experience online is patience, The world of internet marketing can be unpredicable and inconsistent, if something isn’t working adapt until it does.

    I think that all of these steps are great. Number 9 is one of the most important steps! Education is key especially when it comes to the Internet. You can never learn enough about Internet marketing and staying on top of the latest techniques will make you stand out from your competition. At our company we try to learn a new concept everyday 🙂

    Goal Setting is really important. I have heard many self-help gurus recount the study from Harvard Law School where a graduating class were asked if they had written goals for their lives. At the class reunion 25 years later the surviving class members were questioned again and it was found that the 3% of the class that had written goals were worth more than the other 97% combined!

    A comment on ‘Never Stop Learning’, there’s an old saying “Successful People have big libraries, Unsuccessful People have Big TVs!”

  6. I always think planning is better for every Goal. I plan and schedule my work and then I try to follow those. Marketing without a plan is like working out in Gym without training program and diet chart. Ultimate result is nothing but frustration.

    and lastly, do it all over again..we all know that “Experience is the best Teacher”. We cannot achieve our goals in an instant especially if we are in online business.

    Thanks

    I was nodding my head through this whole post. It’s funny how the simple things are the most important and sometimes the hardest to implement.

    Like it’s been proven that just writing down your goals make you more likely to achieve them. How simple is that, yet how many of us actually do it?

    I don’t know if the list is in order of importance or not but I think time for yourself should be higher. Time for yourself seems to always become an afterthought and it really is important to take care of yourself to avoid burnout.

    Another great post. Though I fall short on #10 – take time for yourself. It’s a tough balance between growing a business and family. I know family is far more important, but if your business is the income source it certainly demands attention.
    I guess we often (should say I often) get caught in the moment, and push this down to a lower priority – dumb. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of the brevity of life in the past year, but when it comes to putting work first, I am often the biggest offender. I admire those who are in a position to maintain life “balance”.

    Great article, very sound advice no matter what size your business is. I would like to add just one thing, if you are just starting out, follow all of the above advice and do some thing towards building your business everyday, any progress is good, just manage your time and stay focused and it will come together.

    Then when you get there, buy yourself time and outsource! Outsource everything you can, focus you time on the important stuff.

    Great article for me to think of myself, very sound advice no matter what size your business is. Time Management is very important one for anybody. If you have more focus on your time management other things are easily manageable.
