As many successful Internet marketers already know, the road to success in full with hard clever work. l don’t say trick s and tips but wise and consistent daily rituals. When you ask a successful internet marketer about the recipe of success the most of them tell you 80 % perspiration and 20 % inspiration, the known Pareto Principle. Not to mention that l think it needs 90% to 95% perspiration and then the rest 5 to 10% is inspiration. You need to have a goal, to have a focus on something and stick with it till you succeed.

And turn your potential customers into raving fans who, in turn, spread the word and become your new source for traffic. It all starts with consistent baby steps.

First, a quick intro for the brand-newbies: Will you keep doing everything by yourself? Unless you’re superman, there’s a limit to what you can do on your own. If you want to get serious about growing your business, you’ve got to identify the work you can quit doing. You might be the very best in the industry at website building, backlinking, graphic design and copywriting, but that doesn’t mean your time is best spent doing all of these things. What can be outsourced? Truth is, it’s probably a lot more than you think.
What To Outsource
Do you really want to be an internet markeitng magnet? If you think you can’t afford it or that you have nothing to outsource, think again! Here are just a few of the tasks that you can outsource, many for less than $2/hour:
- Designing mock-ups for a website
- Link-building for SEO
- Designing banner ads (728×90, 300×250, etc)
- Writing high quality articles
- Creating a custom WordPress plugin
- Building entire WordPress sites from scratch
- Building a custom PHP website
- Creating custom software to mass-analyze potential domain purchases
- Finding/creating 100s of images for split-testing in Facebook advertising
- On-page SEO
- Flash animation
Over the past couple of years I’ve been amazed at the number of Internet marketers content to work in the shadows making a living promoting in one trendy niche to another, without really taking the time to develop a long term lasting business. This kind of existence can be exhausting, and in a way that constant struggle defeats the purpose of what’s so attractive about Internet marketing in the first place – the lifestyle. l spent myself several years in the dark too, with frustration and a hope to get it better! Develop your personal brand. For every person in the industry who has made a name for themselves there are thousands working in the shadows. Stand for something, become something, set yourself apart. Be the expert and the money will follow. Every internet marketing magnet had done everything to build its brand.
4. Build Your Own Mastermind Team
Make a list of people you want to meet next year. Think of people you can learn from and who can directly or indirectly help your business and cultivate these relationships. Come up with a plan to connect with each and every person on your list. Build a mastermind team, a tribe to success and follow the meeting and the functions of the mastermind team. Build a team of internet marketing magnets if you want to be one of them.
5. Build an Engaged Audience
Building an engaged audience from scratch is part science, and part art.
Start blogging and showing your true nature. The days of the anonymous affiliate marketer hiding behind a copied landing page are over; too many people have been burned by false claims, and for your prospects to trust your recommendation, they will have to know who you are.
Create a value-adding auto-responder sequence.Give people something that they will get real value out of, and that will demonstrate to them just how trustworthy and credible you are. Every leader has followers, every intrnet marketing magnet has its loyal audience, like the superstars.
6. Test and Split Testing Everything
Is about testing two different variations of something, to see which does a better job of getting your audience to do what you want them to do. Common examples of things that you can split test include headline variations, button text and colors, and product pictures. Keep touching things, don’t stop trying new things, nobody is an expert!
What to split test? Everything! Split test your lead sources, split test your ads, split test your landing pages, split test your affiliates. slit test yourself!
When I first started marketing online I used to email all my customers their download information manually. Yes, each time I made a sale I rushed to send an email to them with their download link as fast as I could. Eventually I discovered automated ways of doing this as well as many other tasks that saved me countless hours. The great power of the Internet lies in being able to let technology do the work for you. Many things can be done automatically, such as backing up your websites, customer follow-up, posting content to you website, and so much more. Whenever you find yourself doing any kind of repetitive task look to see if it can be automated in some way. Chances are it can.
8. Find a Mentor
Whether in business, self-development or Internet marketing, growth can be rapidly moved forward by finding a mentor. Mentoring helps you develop at a faster rate, helping you learn faster, develop skills more adeptly and avoid making the same mistakes over and over again. A mentor, like a good teacher, will help you understand exactly what you need to learn, how to learn it and the best time for you to execute the knowledge. Find another internet marketing magnet to train you. Try to duplicate its habits, you will save time and money.
9. Success Is a Marathon
I’ve seen many internet marketing training systems, and with a few exceptions, their advice is usually very good. However, the techniques they teach can be tedious, repetitive, and usually take weeks, if not months, to start showing results. Just like football training, or learning a musical instrument, or anything else that requires dedicated effort and perseverance.
If you are not having the results you like then ask yourself these questions:
- How many articles have you written and posted?
- How many niche websites have you built?
- How many hours did you spend researching a niche and keywords before choosing it?
- How many backlinks do you actively try to build each week?
Typically, the answer is “Not many” or “I’ve never really done backlinking” or “I picked a niche in a few minutes.” Having seen many of the top training programs out there, I can guarantee that they don’t promise success if you don’t regularly write articles, do serious niche and keyword research, and consistently build backlinks!
Success is a marathon.
10. Get your 10.000 Hours
If you were seriously thinking about taking up a new craft or skill, something you’d never really done before, and wanted to get good enough at it to make a living, think about how dedicated you’d need to be.
Pro bloggers do literally hundreds of posts per years , every single day, whether they want to or not—because that’s what it takes to be great. They study, they try to identify their faults and fix them, and most importantly, they develop or find a training system and stick to it—for months or years on end. Because that’s what it takes to be great.
According to author Malcolm Gladwell, who studied exceptionally talented and successful people in his book Outliers, found that being in the top tier of almost any endeavor, whether sports, business, or the arts, requires incredible dedication and work. He found that people at the absolute pinnacle of their craft have all put in at least 10,000 hours of work over the years.
12. Find Your Niche
Before some years l read a book called Get rich in your Niche! l think it was David Bach the writer. l didn’t gave many attention then, but know its one of the most important thing for every internet marketing professional.
First, you identify a market or a niche. These are groups of people who share a common interest. For example, golfing. That’s a group of folks who are all interested in a very specific activity. The goal of a marketable information product is to simply find out what that group “needs” and deliver it in the form of an ebook, videos, software, or some combination of these digital products. The idea is that you find a market, you find out what the market wants or needs, and then you deliver it in the form of an information product.
So what constitutes a great market? In a perfect world, I would say it’s three things:
First, you want an “evergreen” market. An evergreen market means that it won’t be going away anytime soon. The classic example of that is weight loss. For the foreseeable future, everyone will want to continue to try to lose weight.
Second, you want a market where there are searchers online looking for information.
Finally, we’d like to see a market where there is the potential for people to buy multiple products or multiple related products. This means that as you continue to build your list of customers, it is more valuable as you could sell them more items over time
You need to find the best potential market for you with the best market potential. Then you need to know your niche well!
Internet marketing magnets have many niches, but you need to succeed in the first one and then go to the other.
