First rule, don’t be gullible. There are no Top Secret Techniques of marketing or making money online and even if there were, nobody would ever tell you what they are. There are plenty of people on the Internet who will try and sell you this pipe-dream which include the tricks of winning the lottery, making gazillions of dollars each week or retiring only a few months after implementing their plan. Albeit, you will need to cough up the $39.95 to buy their ebook or white paper to learn these top secret tricks, but I would suggest doing a little more investigating and homework before you turn over your hard earned money. The old adage, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is” still rings clear and should always trigger an alarm if you think something is not kosher.
Obviously there are best practices and minor tweaks you make to improve your marketing plan and help bring new, potential customers to your website. I cannot understand why so many people think there are shortcuts to building a business, gaining exposure or a first page ranking on Google. It is a slow and tedious process and takes time to achieve tangible results.
I am going to share some simple advice that should go a long way. So pay attention and take notes.
There are 365 days in a year. Take away the weekends and you’re left with 260 work days, assuming you work Monday through Friday. Now subtract another 25 days for holidays and you are left with 235 working days per year.
Now, here is the easy part. If you commit to doing one simple and easy marketing item each day, you will slowly build a respectable arsenal and marketing platform to help you achieve your goals. It’s all about being intelligent and working slowly, not trying to achieve unobtainable results overnight.
Below are some things you can do on a daily basis. Do one of the suggested items each day.
If you follow the basic guidelines above, every day for an entire year, I can assure you it will benefit you as a person, in your business and professional career.
