Content marketing today appears much different than it used to look. There are new tactics, trends, data, and content tools that have transformed our approach, and it’s easy to forget the core purpose of content. There are several things that all brands, marketers, and industry leaders need to know about content marketing today.

 

It takes effort, you have to be consistent, social media is not the only way to distribute content, plugging your products is not its only function, your blog can’t do it alone, it fuels and offers PR opportunities, and you have to walk before you can run.

 

John Hall details these points in his article The Truth About Content Marketing And What Brands Need To Know

Blogging for Business

by Rahimah Sultan

If you run a small company or are thinking about starting a business, you may find that the world of blogging is something you want to be part of. It’s a great way to get the word out to consumers about your product or service.

 

As a business owner, the key to having a successful blog is keeping your goals clear and concrete at every step of your blogging journey. If you’re just learning about the exciting possibilities of blogging technology, it’s very easy to get sidetracked.

 

If you want your blog to succeed you need to stay focused. Write up a plan that includes how often you will update, how you will promote your blog and retain readers, whether you will feature photographs or video, and other aspects, and then stick to it with the same kind of determination that you used when you first started your business.

 

Blogging is an essential way to get your message out to others. You can incorporate text, pictures, links, short videos, or other media in your posts to make your content more appealing to readers.

 

There are many platforms for blogs that include WordPress.com, WordPress.org, Blogger, and Tumblr. There are pros and cons to consider when choosing a platform. You have to make an assessment and choose the one that best suits your needs for now and in the future.

 

WordPress.com is free but you will not technically own your blog. It can be suspended at any time, and .wordpress is in your domain name. WordPress.org is free, you have control and there are search engine friendly options, although you must pay a host to support it.

 

WordPress.org requires you to have some basic understanding of how the web servers and the installation process works. Although you can set one up in under 5 minutes, WordPress.org requires some technical skill for uploading files to a web server using FTP (file transfer protocol) and such.

 

Blogging for business is a way to showcase your passion and expertise and a way to brand yourself and your products. It allows you to present your knowledge and skills to the public. A good post length can contain as few as 350 to 400 words.

 

If you’re looking for a way to take your business to the next level, consider what starting a blog might be able to do for you.

 

If you have been thinking about blogging for business, now may be the time to start. Once you get your blog up and running and get a few followers your confidence will grow. Just take the first step.

Internet Marketing: What’s It All About?

by Rahimah Sultan

What Is Internet Marketing?

 

Internet marketing is a number of marketing activities that can be done online which include affiliate marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, blogging, paid marketing, search engine optimization and more.

 

Before you do anything be sure to get all the information you can.

 

Understanding The Internet Marketing Field

 

There’s a lot to learn, however everyone has to start somewhere. There are a lot of terms that may or may not be confusing to you, depending on your knowledge of the field. There are four general phases to really understanding internet marketing and making money online.

 

1) What’s actually happening online and how is money made?

 

At the start you have to focus on value, not revenues. In the beginning you do the most amount of work for the least return.

 

If you’re short on cash and hoping to make some fast money online, you’ll be disappointed. There’s no such thing as getting rich quick. All these schemes are selling you short. You have to put in the time and do the work while adding enormous value.

 

There are things associated with internet marketing such as affiliate marketing, network marketing, multi-level marketing and more. Affiliate marketing is really tough unless you have an enormous following or you know how to build first-rate squeeze pages and great sales funnels. You need to know the virtual landscape before undertaking creating your own digital products and sales funnels.

 

2) What do you want to do?

 

Once you understand how things work you need to decide what you want to do. Do you want to be an affiliate marketer, a network marketer, a blogger?

 

Whatever you do you’ll need traffic. You need to drive traffic to your offers with squeeze pages or landing pages which have a call to action and a sign-up form. This is your first contact with customers or your follow up after you’ve made initial contact. Learn the right skills as you go so that you can become effective. It will take time. Just don’t give up.

 

3) Know how you will communicate.

 

You should actually decide this before you start online. Will you blog, build a list, use social media or do JVs? Whatever you do, be straight with people and learn to communicate effectively and understand every stage of the process.

 

4) What’s your passion?

 

Decide what you’re passionate about and pick a niche. Get a custom domain and set up a professional-looking site that will be your place of business to which everything will be linked. All of your advertising, SEO, social media, etc. will be directed here.

 

Create free enticing offers to capture names and email addresses with your squeeze pages to start building your funnels. This will all take time, and you will profit in the end. It may all seem confusing at first. Internet marketing is a constant complicated process. Beware of unscrupulous individuals bearing shiny trinkets. Follow and learn from reputable people online. Don’t fall for the hype.

 

So, view the big picture of what’s actually happening online and how money is made, decide what you want to do and how you wish to communicate, figure out your passion and pick a niche.

When developing a marketing strategy, you need to first develop customer personas. You need to ask some questions:

 

 

*What are your customers roles?
*Do they have decision-making authority?
*What are the demographics…

 

Every marketing strategy should start with your customer base. Who are the people using your product? What do these individuals value, what do they feel, what products are they currently using, and what will it take to sign them on as paying customers?

 

Marketing is about human-to-human relationships and can happen through any online or offline medium. At the end of the day, your customers probably won’t remember whether they found your company through a click on a Facebook ad or through a referral from a friend.

3 Basic Internet Marketing Tips

by Rahimah Sultan

 

 

The internet is a massive marketplace with all kinds of people – buyers, sellers, marketers, specialists, etc. Your business has unlimited potential to grow when it targets the internet as its market. If you’re a business owner with a website, you’ll want to use Internet marketing. If you don’t, your website is almost useless. Here are three basic Internet marketing tips to keep in mind.

 

Be sure you have a blog

 

Blog marketing will greatly boost your connection with potential customers. It will give you the ability to get feedback about your company, products and/or services and communicate with them through the comments section.

 

If you’re just thinking about setting up a blog, you need to determine exactly why you want to blog and write down your goals. Next on the list should be a step by step guideline that will accomplish those goals.

 

Then you should learn everything you can from experienced bloggers and determine your own path. Copying others never works. Just use them as examples.

 

With a static website there are minimal updates, not much new information, and not much customer interaction. A blog makes your website more reader friendly, and Google friendly. Google loves new information. When you post new articles regularly you will get picked up by search engines, of which Google is the most popular.

 

Make sure your website looks the way your target audience expects

 

Don’t waste time or money on conceptualizing what your site should look like. Just try and get ideas from successful ones who are in the same market and business as you. Learn from them, and create your own familiar design.

 

A wisely designed website is the way to go. It doesn’t have to be fancy and perfect. It just has to appeal to your target market’s taste. For example, if your website is about targeting prospects for your jewelry business, make sure it reflects such.

 

Don’t stop with a website

 

Many business owners think that once a website is set up, it will run on its own and function properly as it’s supposed to. Setting up your website is only step one – the foundation. After you’ve created and established an online presence, you have to make sure to follow up with other online business needs, which include your blog, search engine optimization (SEO), and social network integration.

 

In today’s ever-changing online marketplace it’s not enough to just have a website. Your business requires marketing strategies the same as an offline business. For marketing success you must engage in effective promotion.

 

Whether you’re an established business online or off, or you’re working from home on your own, Internet marketing requires investment of time, energy, and money. There is no free ride. So, make sure you’re visible in the online marketplace to ensure you have a chance at success.

 

In summary, be sure you have a blog, make sure your website meets your prospects expectations, and don’t stop with just a website. These three basic internet marketing tips are a starting point.

You may already have an online business that is going well and you’re making money. So, you know the basics of Internet marketing and growing a business. But, there are many people who are unsure about establishing an online business and what to expect, and some have a website but no real online presence.

In order to grow your online business you need a steady flow of targeted prospects visiting your website and online sales pages. Here are some Internet marketing solutions for home business.

When they fill in this form they will be directed to a link to get what you’ve promised.

 

Now they are on a list you’ve set up at your hosting company so you can follow up with them and establish a relationship so they get to know, like, and trust you. This process of advertising, using a LCP, and a follow-up system is your sales funnel.

3 Keys to Internet Marketing

by Rahimah Sultan

There are at least three things an Internet marketer needs for business; targeted traffic, a product or service, and a marketing funnel. Following are three keys to Internet Marketing.

 

Targeted Customers

 

You need targeted customers who are genuinely interested in your products or services. You can buy traffic or use free sources or both. You should be very careful when using paid sources for traffic, as it can become extremely expensive in a really short period of time.

 

Product or Service

 

Your product or service can be an actual physical product that is shipped to buyers or a digital product that can be instantly downloaded to their computers. If you don’t have your own product, you can use sources like Click bank, JV Zoo, and Deal Guardian, to name a few.

 

Just be sure that whatever the source, they are good products and not junk. You don’t want to taint your reputation. You can also become an affiliate for most products and earn commissions. Research the products and choose those with the best payout. You don’t want to spend your time promoting products that pay very little. Promote products that you use.

 

Follow-up Strategy

 

You need a follow up strategy for people who do not buy from you the first time they visit your site. A marketing funnel serves that purpose by capturing visitors’ information and adding them to your list of prospects to be contacted at a later date.

 

A marketing funnel is the process used to turn leads into customers beginning with the first interaction with you.

 

When someone sees an Ad linked to your venture and checks it out, it’s the first contact. Now you need a way to capture their information in order to follow up with them to get them to know, like, and trust you. You should have a form on that page asking for a name and email address. When this form is filled in, the prospect is taken to your thank you page which includes a link for the free gift you’ve offered in exchange for their information. This puts them on your list, and you can send them future emails that build a relationship, which will eventually entice them to buy from you.

 

Once you have a prospect’s information you can remind them of your products and services in a number of ways that include email marketing, online webinars and social media.

 

You can use an email autoresponder to develop the connection between you and a prospect. An autoresponder is a program that automatically generates a set response to all messages sent to a particular email address.

 

There are plenty of free marketing tools you can use in your business. You can check them out here.

 

You need targeted customers, a product or service, and a follow-up strategy for Internet marketing. Using these 3 keys to Internet marketing tips will help you get started.
