If you have ever had the dream of becoming rich online, or wanted to start your own internet marketing blog, or website, then these are some of the things you will need to do in order to become successful.
There are many people who WANT to start something "profitable", but end up doing nothing good with their ideas. If you want to become successful and have visitors coming to your site from all over the internet then you need to start doing something.
A good and beginners way of starting a business online is by finding a market and start blogging about that topic, giving away free resources and interesting posts in a multitude of topics. This is a very popular approach and something you might want to use. There are people who run more than one blog, sometimes as much as 40 or 50 blogs.
This of course sounds like a very time consuming task, but in reality, it's really not. There are many ways to run a blog and have other people do the posting and maintenance. Many people who start blogging experince that their time spend writing is a lot more than they are approaching and ever stop.
This is because they do not know how to really drive traffic and make that traffic convert into sales and leads. You need to convert visitors into sales and leads if you want to make money. That's obvious.
Here are a few things you can do in order to increase sales, leads and revenue.
You can start by writing the sales copy or articles in a "you" oriented fashion. This means you are targeting a person with your text, including more "you", "your" and "yours" than "I", "me", "our", "mine" etc.
You must know before hand what the prospect is interested in. It's much easier to convert someone who is "targeted", meaning someone you have specifically targeted with your search phrases and are preferably in a "buyer type" state of mind.
Targeting people who are primarialy out there to buy and giving people just enough information to tease the reader into wanting more is an artform and the best marketing tactic known to man. Many experience copywriters will tell you this.
- So, if you want to maintain a blog you want to increase conversion to motivate yourself to keep adding content.
- Add content regularly or have someone write it for you.
- Keep content short, sweet and to the point, but informative.
- Tell people to comment, digg, stumpleupon, reddit and squidoo your posts.
- Have a sign-up box on your blog for people to get more information about the topic they are interested in.
