1. Create your own website and use your brand name as your domain name
It’s important to use your brand name as your domain name, so that when people search for you on Google or type your brand name directly on their web browser, it will be easy for them to find you.
Having your own website allows you to control the information you put on the Internet. Put a face on your website. Publish content that makes you appear as an authority.
2. Engage and build a relationship with your customers
Don’t be a snob. If you’ve made it your business goal to help people, then it would be in your best interests to interact and engage with them.
Whether it be on your own website, via emails, or on your social networking accounts, don’t be afraid to reach out to them. They’ll appreciate the gesture.
And they’ll be more likely to recommend you to their friends. Remember, word of mouth marketing works better than any other advertising channel you pay for!
3. Show the real you and be authentic
People can spot a fake profile from a mile away, especially if they’ve been scammed before.
While some people can successfully hide behind a fake persona, often, they don’t achieve long-term success.
That’s because eventually someone is going to spot something’s off about you and tell everyone who will listen, or you get tired of the pretense and not getting the recognition you deserve.
Of course, this will vary from niche to niche but if your type of business allows it, be extra nice to your customers. They’ll remember you for a very long time.
As I learned with my big experiment site back in the day, it's far better to charge a small amount for a short trial, say one to three dollars for the first week.
You'll definitely sort those people out that are coming to you just because they can (so called tire kickers), and those that are coming to you because they’re serious about what your business has to offer.
I've got a real life story for you here.
A good friend of mine set up a site when we were in our early days on the scene. He had a pretty good product backed up by a multi level affiliate system, or a matrix of sorts.
Anyway, he started promoting and all was going well, until word started spreading around some of his affiliates about some guaranteed signups site, that sold signups to anything free, for a fee.
A real resource disaster case that one, because it rendered the pay plan almost useless. Make sure you do this one right and offer a trial for a small fee if your product permits. You could be looking at a similar costly situation otherwise.
Not sure how to go about getting leads, but still be making sales at the same time without interrupting your sales process? Not sure what to charge for your trial, or how you can even adapt a trial to your business in the first place?
We'll talk through these points here.
The best thing about online marketing is that anyone, anywhere can start their own internet based business.
You don't need a lot of cash to put down for a property, and you don't need to buy stock, or put down a huge sums of money for storage, and so on.
This is great, but somewhere along the way, the basics of business have been forgotten.
Of course I won't bore you and relay everything that I learned in college and university, because to be honest, barely any of it applies to the real world of business.
What I really want to get into in this blog post is to show you how an internet based business can work for you.
Why you're doing what you're doing, what to expect, and most importantly how to go about this correctly right off the bat, because building a strong base is vital for the short term success of your internet marketing endeavours.
One thing that I find with online business is, people see the opportunity there to make a whole load of cash, quit their jobs and live the good life. In a way, this is true, but they forget about themselves.
They see the money and their eyes light up. This blog post is to manage certain expectations about the nature of online business, what you want and how you plan to get it before committing any further.
Firstly, ask yourself this fundamental question: Why are you here? Really ask yourself that question.
Why have you decided to start your own business? Why online? Maybe it was the promise of some extra cash, a little extra free time.
Do you want to go all the way and quit your job in the future? Or maybe you have some other motivation?
This is the basis of setting goals. Why are you here? When you've answered that question, remember it.
Keep it filed, updated and well a truly embedded in your mind. Any tough times you come across, or any problems that may arise with your business in the future, remember why you're here and why you're doing this and why it is worthwhile.
The answer to this question is what's going to spur you on and keep you going and moving on up the ladder.
Some people like to create whole elaborate plans around their goals, but for now we'll leave it at that.
Quick and simple. It's not hard, it's not time consuming but it is an extremely important part of your success.
All you ever need to do is ask yourself those three questions. Why am I here? What do I want? How do I plan to get it?
Basic? You may think so, but look at it this way, without this motivation, you may find yourself waking up in five years time, sitting in the same chair, in the same place, in the same situation and wondering why you haven't moved forward.
It's likely because you didn't set yourself a goal, which is done simply by answering those three questions.

It's important for marketers to study basic psychology because most buying decisions are motivated by the needs of Maslow's hierarchy, which are psychological.
People are rarely motivated to buy because of the basic needs of survival, such as hunger or the need for sleep, but most often because of the psychological needs of the upper four levels.
Advertisers Are After Your Emotions
People are influenced by a number of different factors when making purchasing decisions.
Of course, they're influenced by information and objective facts. But this objective information is often outweighed by emotional or psychological factors.
Entire books have even been written about this. Marketers and advertisers, who have put in a great deal of time and effort in studying buying behavior, have identified these emotional triggers.
A young mother buys organic products that are essentially the same as the regular products on the shelves because for her, purchasing these goods is a decision for the environment, her children, and the future.
A teenager buys a pair of tennis shoes without doing any due diligence on the brand but simply because her favorite tennis player wears them and she imagines that she will play better with them.
A small business entrepreneur invests a great deal of money in a new content management system, partly because of the merits of the system, but mainly because she believes it will free up time and grow her business.
We buy because we want more time, better health, more self-confidence, improved appearance, more leisure or comfort, or what we perceive as a better life.
We also buy to avoid taking risks, losing money, leaving ourselves vulnerable to threats, potential suffering, embarrassment or worry.
We think our purchases will keep us up-to-date, make us likable or influential, or help us better express ourselves.
Each product meets a real need (if you're ethical). But it also meets an emotional need.
Cars are used to travel and their features can improve safety or fuel-efficiency. But your car also expresses your social status or makes you feel cool.
Organic food does help mitigate our impact on the environment, but it also combats anxiety about potentially harmful chemicals. Mobile gadgets help you stay more connected and communicate better with your friends, but they also help you feel more futuristic.
There is almost always an emotional component to even the most practical products we buy. For example, if you're a wine dealer, it may be a better strategy to emphasize a particular wine's popularity or the awards it has won, rather than trying to educate your market on wine complexity.
If you're selling beauty products, you might choose to focus on how they give you confidence rather than their actual ingredients.
A seller of gadgets might highlight how its products connect people and put them in touch with the future, rather than the actual features and improvements. You're not underestimating your customers or 'dumbing-down' your marketing.
You're simply meeting your customers halfway between the actual features and qualities of your products, and their psychological and emotional needs. You're directly speaking to their needs or struggles.
When you understand where your products or services fit within your customer's psychological and emotional needs, you can tailor your marketing approach and tactics.
If you know at what point of Maslow's pyramid they're struggling, you can identify how your product helps them overcome their struggle or achieve what they want. Discover more by clicking here.
