Are you looking to do business online? If so, I think you’re making a wise decision. You can get lots of sales for free online, and you don’t need the huge financial investment that you would need with offline marketing. I used to think about owning a dollar store, but when I took a look at the price needed to invest into a dollar store, I immediately threw that idea out of the window.
And then, I tried my hand at real estate. And this was during a time where I had no credit, didn’t know anything about fixing houses, hiring people, or paying a mortgage. Needless to say that didn’t last long. And then I tried my hand at MLM. I was driving around trying to get people to sign up under me, held family seminars, attended conferences, and etc. Overall, I must have lost around $5,000 on all of these things.
But now, I’m in an online business that surpasses all of these things. Even offline marketing gurus who hated online marketing are now praising online marketing for the benefits that they have. It’s like when Einstein first heard of quantum mechanics, he thought it was weird and absurd, and couldn’t be true. But years of testing the theory proved that Einstein was wrong.
My point is that if you want to start an online business, then now is the perfect time to do so. There are so many benefits of having an online business, which (in my opinion) trumps offline marketing. In fact, I want to get started on why you should do online marketing. Here’s the first reason:
1) You can get traffic easily
Traffic generation is a simple concept. You can use paid advertising and get traffic to your site quickly and easily. This is something that a lot of people do when they first get started online, but many of them end up spending all of their funds and don’t end up getting any sales whatsoever.
I think you should test and take things one strategy at a time. Traffic is indeed easy, but don’t just go out and get “hits”. Anybody can get “hits” for free. I can show you how to get 100 “hits” to your website for free without any hassle, marketing, or advertising whatsoever. Traffic is important, but it’s more important that it’s targeted traffic. Here’s another reason you should do online marketing:
2) Ease of automation
This is the lovely part of internet marketing. You can automate just about every aspect of your business – and it doesn’t matter if you sell physical products! One of my favorite automation tools is the email autoresponder. An autoresponder is simply an email program that automatically sends out timely (and helpful) emails to the people who subscribe to your list.
You can literally earn thousands of dollars a month simply by doing list building and email marketing. Automation is something that you will want to do if you want to have massive success online – plus it will free up your time so that you can go and play golf when you want.
