Internet Marketing: Creating Your Plan for Success

Once you start your own business, you must take the time to figure out how you are going to get the word out about your business. If you own an online business, your time is going to be spent marketing your business on the Internet. However, how do you create plan for your success using Internet marketing?

The first thing you should do is create two lists for your Internet marketing. The first list will be your short term strategies. This list should include a variety of techniques that you will use over a short period of time. Some of the techniques may include paid online advertising, advertising in search engines, advertising on websites, and even, posting in forums.

The second list for your Internet marketing should consist of long term strategies that you are going to use for your business. These techniques may include blogging, social networking websites, article marketing, email marketing, and social bookmarking sites. These long term techniques are ones that you will use all of the time.

In creating your initial plan for marketing, you will want to make a schedule for yourself to implement these techniques. Each day, you should spend at least three to four hours on your marketing. The long term strategies should be used on a daily basis, while your short term strategies can be used at your discretion. Just make sure that you do not skip a day, as it is very important to get the traffic coming into your website everyday.

Because there are very few online business owners that have experience in marketing, you will find there are a lot of classes that are available to you. Make certain you take advantage of these learning opportunities, as well as find a successful business owner that you can emulate. The fact is, starting your own business on the Internet may be easy, but there is a lot to learn before you can become a success.

The Truth About the Business of Multi Level Marketing

Has anyone ever told you not to believe everything you hear or read? Skepticism is normal, especially when you do not have all of the information. However, you must also not let your skepticism get in the way of a good thing. Everyone has probably heard many things about multi level marketing and most are not positive. The fact is, however, multi level marketing can be a great business to get into, as long as you understand the truth.

You Won’t Get Rich Quick
One of the many tricks that illegitimate businesses use to get others into the business is promising prospects that they can get rich quick. This is the most common of the untruths. There is no business that is going to make you rich that quickly. Any business you start is going to need time to grow. Most business owners often make several mistakes before they get on the right path. Time is a very important factor and if you are not willing to put the time into it, this may not be the best industry to join.

You Do Have to Work
Another common mistake that many make is listening to others tell them that all they have to do is join and they can start making money. Well, the truth of the matter is that you are not going to make any money in this business unless you actually do the work. Most people who become a success with multi level marketing spend more than a full work week at their business. Between marketing the products and opportunity and following up with leads, you should be prepared to put in at least an eight hour day. It can be done part time as well, but it takes longer.

You Must Do Your Homework
Many people often do not get involved in multi level marketing because of all of the talk that it is just a scam. The truth is that there are scams within the industry. But, being realistically, they are in just about every industry out there. Before you join any business, you must do your homework. Research both the background of the company and their current financial condition and you can insure that you are joining one of the legitimate businesses within the industry.

Three Things Every Successful Business Owner Knows!

Whether you are just starting your business or you have been running a business that is struggling, you want your business to succeed. Whether you sell a service or products, every successful business has three things in common. Once you master those three things, you can easily grow your business and reap the benefits you never imagined you'd have.

The single most important thing to any business is the customers. The customer doesn't always have to be right, but in order to run a successful business, you have to have excellent customer service. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising, so you don't want your customers walking away unhappy. This doesn't mean you have to give in to their every demand, but you do need to be understanding and empathetic to their concerns. Customer service should be the number one priority of your business.

Any business that makes a decent profit has one thing, returning customers. Knowing how to get new customers to become repeat customers isn't something every business owner has an easy time with. If you are having a hard time earning repeat business, you could try offering a customer incentive to get people to return. Punch cards are a great incentive. You can give them to your new customers and let them know that after they make so many purchases they will get a percentage off. You can also use things like mailing lists to draw attention to any specials or sales you may have.

Lastly, every successful business owner manages their business like a business. Many small business owners tend to be more relaxed, treating their business more like a hobby than an actual company. You can't be successful is you don't operate like a normal business would. You don't have to know every little business detail there is to know, but you have to know someone who does. That's why it's important to make business contacts with people who know and understand different aspects of the business world. These contacts could be your savior if you ever need their advice.

Work From Home Business: Don't Fall Victim to a Scam, You can Find a Legit Opportunity

Many people review work from home business opportunities each day and just as many people fall victim to some of the countless scams in operation online. It's possible to find legit opportunities, but in order to do so you have to be able to avoid the scams. There are slight differences that you can look for that may save you a lot of time and money.

Work from home business scams, often ask for a lot of money upfront. What confuses people is that the legit opportunities often ask for money as well. The difference is in the amount of money. All businesses have start up costs so it's not unusual to pay money to get a business going. However, if you are looking into being a distributor for a company the majority of legit companies will charge you $500 or less to get started. Often times it's significantly less than that amount.

You should also look at what you are getting for your money. Most companies will drop ship products directly to your customers as they purchase them. Companies that require you to carry a vast amount of inventory may also be a scam. These scams often require people to purchase a large quantity of inventory from them that the are not likely to sell. They do deliver the product, but it becomes hard to unload, thus the person who purchased it lost money.

Work from home business scams are out there, however, there are plenty of legit opportunities as well. Looking at the details before you decide to comply with a business opportunity can save you a lot of time and money. Completing research of each company before committing to anything is vital to you finding the legit companies and being able to start a business that will succeed.

How to Setup my free BLOG!

The next way I've positioned myself on the Internet to earn autopilot income is to setup a BLOG. So today I'll walk you through the steps I've used so you can do it too...

The good news is that it's SUPER EASY and it's FREE!

The service I use to publish my blog is called Blogger.

As the site says: "It's easy, and it only takes a minute."

And I might add: "It can make you a lot of money too!" :-)

To get started now, click the "Create A Blog" button:

Next fill out the form to create your Google account and click the "Continue" button:

Now name your blog. This could be anything you want and you can change it anytime you want. You might start by naming it the same as your domain name:

Don't worry about the advanced options. Click "Continue".
On the next page you get to choose what you want your blog to look like. Scroll through the available templates and choose one that you like. You can always change this later. Once you select one, click the "Continue" button.

That's it... Your blog has been created!

Now click the "Start Blogging" button. This will take you to a page where you can add content to your blog:

As you can see, there is a field to enter a Title and a message Body to your blog. This can be anything you want!
To get things started, you might type something like: "Welcome to blog!" in the Title field.
Then move your cursor in the larger message body field by clicking inside it and type something like:
I've just launched my new blog! Stay tuned for the latest updates and information about starting a and succeeding with an Internet home business.

... or whatever YOU want to say! ;-)
Your first post could look something like this:

TIP: I make all the links in my blog post clickable and bold by using the buttons at the top of the blog post editor. If you highligh the text you want to be bold and click the little b button that will make your text bold. If you highlight the text you want to turn into a link and then click the button that looks like this:
When you highligh text and click that button, this little box will pop up:

Just type the site you want to link to in that box and click: "OK" and your text will now link to that site!
Once you are satisfied with your first blog post, simply click the "Publish Post" button to publish your first post.
Congratulations! Your blog post published successfully!

Click on the (in a new window) link to see your blog. As you can see, you can also "Edit post" which allows you to change your post if you want, or "Create a new post" which allows you to move on and make your next blog post.
Right now your blog is very basic looking. That will change. The most important thing is how you will USE your blog.
One of the things that your blog can do for you is enable you to get different pages of your site ranked in the search engines for a many different keyword search phrases.
Every time you make a post in your blog you are creating a brand new page on the Internet.
And every page on your website is like having fishing line in the water with bait on it ready to catch fish. Of course, with Internet marketing, fish are people (interested prospects).
Just continue following the steps in this guide and soon you'll have thousands of baited lines in the water that are positioned in front of people who will travel through your affiliate links and sign up for things that you're promoting.
For now, I strongly encourage you to add any articles you have to your blog because what your blog needs most right now is content. On the Internet, CONTENT IS KING and if you become a source of it you can get a lot of traffic.
Soon the search engines will find your blog and the more content you have in it, and the more often you add new content, the higher the search engines will rank you.
To make this as easy as possible for you, the How To Build My SFI Internet Business blog provides you with 4 new Private Label Rights articles every month that you can post to your blog.
This means you get 4 new professionally written articles EVERY MONTH that you can add to your blog.
For now, I simply encourage you to take 1 of the articles you get from the co-op and add it to your blog.
WARNING: Don't add them all at once because Google will view this as spamming. Just scan through your monthly articles, PICK ONE that you want to be added to your blog.
All you have to do to make this happen is contact Pieter Last at Give him your Blogger URL, so he can verify your blog and add you to the Blogger Co-op. If you want to know more about co-op, go to your TO-DO-LIST or click on your VP score in your SFI Home page. Now scroll down to find info about Co-op marketing.
Even if you are not a co-op member, you can add articles to your blog regularly by writing them yourself or going to sites like and and re-publishing other people's articles on your blog. As long as you include the author's contact information and link to their website, it's OK to do this. This is actually why people submit their articles to these sites because they want bloggers and ezine publishers to republish their article so they can get more traffic back to their website.
If you are a co-op member, here's the simple steps to add one of your articles to your blog:
Login to your Blogger account here.

Then click the "New Post" button.

Then take the article title and place it in the Title section of your Blogger new post input page and the article body in the large Body section of your Blogger new post input page.

Here's what mine looked like with an article called "Make Money Online by Harnessing Your Hobbies":

Once you've entered your article, click "Publish Post".
You just added your first article to your blog and you are now OFFICIALLY an information publisher! It's like being a newspaper or magazine publisher, but doing it online. :-)
You could even charge people to advertise on your blog, have guest columnists, etc... But for now let's stick to the basics and get your blog pulling in traffic and profits from the affiliate programs you already belong to.
You could add a 1 more of your articles to your blog that you get from the co-op but don't add more than this right away because it could be viewed as spamming by Google. Just review the list and pick one more article that you like and follow the steps above again. I also encourage you to do this every month with the new articles you get from the co-op. Pick 1 or 2 of your favorite articles each month to add to your blog. This will give you a constant stream of fresh original content for your blog and THAT'S what search engines are looking for.
TIP: For even better effect, I encourage you to change the title of the article you pull from the co-op and add a few words and sentences to the article here and there... In other words, customize it! By doing this, you'll make the article truly UNIQUE and when you have content on your blog that nobody else in the world has, you'll dramatically increase the probability of that blog post getting ranked HIGH in the search engines. :-)
Adding content to your blog regularly in this way will help you get listed in the search engines and pull in FREE traffic!
You're off to a great start, but there is still much to do...

Good luck
