Ive outlined a step by step marketing process flow, and more, on how to setup an online Money Marketing Machine. This is not hype, or sales, and I don’t make any money giving this valuable information away free.
Step 1 : Set Goals : Sounds basic, but most fail right here at the beginning, so lets jump start the process roadmap for you. Roll out a 1 year goal roadmap, break it down by each month. I built factories in many countries so how do you think I did this. There was no option to fail . So here is your final goal at Month 12: Your goal is resign from your 8 to 5 job forever. Sounds scary but a realistic goal. Now you can change at will, but at least make a commitment. Other options to consider; retire at month 12, and your job becomes a hobby.
Step 2 : Goal for Month 1, Decision on what information product you’re going to focus on and market. Sounds as if I made the decision for you, and I did in fact. Simply any successful marketing individual will say it over and over, works for me. Information is in constant demand, the internet; your marketing money machine, has an endless thirst for information. Go write an e-book about something you really enjoy, sport, hobby, something you always had a passion for, and start writing now. Find someone to complete it , if need be.
Step 3 : Complete drafting goals for months 2 through 11. How you approach this is really simple, and again lets make this simple for you. Month 12 goal is very clear on exactly what you’re planning to achieve, the goal is written in blood, you signed it, your wife blessed it ; since you will have some expenses, and the wife should be a supporter of your future. Here is how you approach filling in your monthly goals. Actually start with your month 12 goal, and work your way back, making adjustments, modifications as your goal structure takes place.
Step 4. Planning stage ; creating a plan of action under each months goal. Now this might look like itemized action items, with even sub action items to be completed in each month time frame. See, you have already established the foundation to a marketing plan, business on the internet, topic of desire, and now its time to think through each step of how you will get there, month to month.
Step 5. Select the following partners in this order, as you’re going to start building from the foundation up, your Marketing Money Machine. First, select a domain company, and your first domain name, like Go Daddy, however there are many out there. I am only giving you steps, read up on domains if you need more detail. Second, a web host company, again Host Monster, or Host Gator, read up on hosts, there are many out there. These two offer simple features to build your first website, does this scare you a bit, never built one ? Well me to, but now I have many working for me, its fun. Everything is getting automated, icon, pictures, drag, drop, click. 30 minutes, done. If you don’t understand these terms then pull up some sites and read up on further details, start with the two I mentioned, and ask questions, if you still don’t get it, have one built, it may cost a small sum, but its all about saving time and headaches.
Step 6. Recap, you have goals over a 1 year period, you have a e-book written, read up on how to; you have some good partners, domain, host acct., a website, your e- book is setup on your site, priced accordingly, since you found similar ones for 29.95 each, so you priced for qty at 19.95 each special time limited offer, and 3 free bonuses. These are all pretty basic. And I added feature which most Hosts provide, are auto responders, read up on these. So, what next.
Step 7: Time to launch, but make this count, here are some simple guidelines to get you going. First register your site , yes by hand, sound scary ? Why, simply because the top three SE companies will ask you to type in the code shown, to verify you’re not a robot, spamming them to register all 10 minutes for high SE rankings. So, here they are: Google, Yahoo, MSN. The forms are so simple it might take you over one minute each. Go checkout Google site submit, and look how simple it really is. Now you might ask, what about all those 800,000 SE site submitter robots, that do it all for you, special software for 49.99. Well, simply the 3, I gave you represent well over 90 percent total SE traffic, so right now save your money.
After you’re checked out and indexed by SEs, there are methods to track your position, ranking, popularity, etc. Let me stop right here. Here is a rule to write down and save, whenever a term, or a step I mention slows you down or you find confusing, since all are probably new. The best thing to do is stop, perform a search and you will find the answer. You can also find lots of good information on Forums. Say search Golf Forum, and you would be surprised, sign in, ask for help, and some members will respond with possible options. You now have momentum, ran into a few speed bumps, but found ways to overcome these and keep moving forward. The balance of steps are going to be brief , specific, site, and product promotion, which is an on going cycle.
Here is an fantastic Forum, Warriors, you can probably find someone to build a site, if need be.
Step 8 : Site promotion marketing guidelines. A) Auto site submitters, to the balance of SE companies world wide, sometimes your host will do this free monthly. B) SEO , I would save your money, until later. C) Blogging and pinging. Basically updating info on your site, articles, etc., and telling the SE something new, come and recheck my site, to improve ranking. This is really part of SEO. D) Free advertising, ok, but setup a free dumping e-mail acct, and be prepared for a load of e-mail in return. Note, check it also since many ask to confirm this e-mail.
Step 9: Bottom line real marketing, that gets results. Most of the so named tools you may find are old information like FFA, is a great example. But I wanted to touch on two things that do in fact work and work well over time. First it will take 3 plus months for these to show any crucial results, but its really about viral marketing, something that keeps your site growing over time, using many other sites, directories, etc to advertise free for you. My favorite: Article marketing, write articles, distribute through submitters, Isnare; Article Marketing.com, others. My articles are picked up by directories, others, which make them available to anyone, who needs content on their website, but they must leave your name and site address at the bottom, so it is a snow ball effect forever , building links, popularity, and SE ranking position improved overtime.
This is a second favorite, but if you had a site on Scuba Diving at Cebu Island; one of 7,200 islands in the Philippines, where my teacher was French, another from Japan, one German, one Italian.; get the picture, this site should have options for multiple languages. You may pickup another 3,000 visitors per month. The software is out there. Several think the market is all based in the USA, thats absolutely wrong, you need to broaden your vision and realize there are customers everywhere. I sold software to an island off the coast of South Africa. I never heard of it before and had to look it up on a world map.
Step 9.9: Final Marketing tip, go talk with, Build it Site Sell; it is a great company that can provide all the needs to get you up and running, domains, website, marketing, and turn traffic into customers. They have a very good performance record. So there, you cannot fail, no room for excuses. This Marketing model can apply to any topic, subject of choice, just do it, and you will be rewarded. Last, persistence wins, remember this message.
