So You Want To Make Money… Part 2
Continued from Previous Post “So You Want To Make Money From Your Phone Part 1” ….
This is the very most important part! Now you get the basics you need to learn to apply the principles. The next thing I am going to share with you is the key to unlocking the power of the internet to grow your business so pay very close attention. You don’t have to spend hours every day in front of your computer adding friends on facebook in order to have a successful internet business! In fact, most people who do this end up with nothing but a lot of wasted time and a list of old high school buddies who they never cared to re-connect with anyway.
Creating a successful internet marketing business will require some time on your part in setting up some of the initial websites and profiles, but ongoing maintenance can be done in 10 minutes a day from your cell phone. I suggest you work backwards by first creating a sales site. This will be a website where you will promote/sell your products/services/opportunity. There is a good chance that you have already done this but in case you have been living under a rock I suggest you do that now. Utilize the wordpress platform which is easy to install and maintain. See these video tutorials.
Second you need to create your own website blog where you can contribute to your industry and your associates. This is where people will come to learn more about you. If you haven’t already done this I once again suggest using wordpress. Focus on providing consistent (but not necessarily daily) content that is insightful, informative, and entertaining. If you are branding yourself I would also suggest some content that is personal in nature. Make it easy for people to get to your sales site from your blog but don’t make it too “in their face” either.
Then focus on creating professional & personal profiles on the main social media networks. Link these to your personal site/blog and not your sales page. Remember that any attempt to pitch your product/opportunity on these sites is considered spam and everyone hates it. Add friends but be selective. 500 contacts that are a part of your target audience are far more useful than 5000 contacts that you randomly added as friends.
Then the only thing you need to consider is the ongoing maintenance. This is where the true power of the mobile phone platforms come out and while I suspect that most of our readers are android users this material applies to everyone so pay very close attention because I’m going to spell it out for you…
