Internet Marketing Strategy in 30 Days
Internet Marketing Strategy in 30 Days
These days, workers of all ages are constantly on the lookout for a career that will allow them to set their hours, pursue their interests, and make as much money as they want without any limits. People who are tired of the harsh realities of the business world are going online more and more to find success in the global market.
In the digital age, you can be your boss and avoid having to follow your superior’s dictates regarding pay and working conditions. When you work and for how long is up to you. You keep working on your chosen business models and projects. You have complete control over pricing and scheduling.
Compared to other jobs, this one offers advantages that most workers can only imagine. It takes effort, though, so don’t expect instant success. Despite what some may say, this is not a get-rich-quick scheme.
The following 30-day plan can help you get started as an online entrepreneur by teaching you about your options. If you are willing to put in the time and effort necessary to make thoughtful decisions and implement them, you can create a six- or even seven-figure business that is more satisfying than any 9-to-5 job.
Step One: Create a Financial Plan for Your Website
Creating a budget is a necessary first step for any business. The Internet has made it possible to start a business with very little money down, but even the most basic tools, such as a domain name and web hosting, will cost you at least fifteen dollars a month.
You need to decide how much money you’re willing to put aside to get started before you can choose a business model. Use these funds however you see fit.
The creation of a membership site for an information product, for example, will likely necessitate the assistance of a specialist, who can be hired through an outsourcing service. It’s possible that you can do the majority of the work yourself, if not all of it.
As you dive deeper into the world of online marketing, you’ll come across the hyped-up sales pages of savvy marketers who promise you shortcuts and quick riches if you buy their course or tools. Don’t give in to the urge to spend more than you can afford by investing more than you can afford.
Step Two: Find your sweet spot today.
Even more crucial than settling on a business model is settling on a niche to focus on. This is because it’s important to connect with your audience through enthusiasm or expertise.
As a leader, it’s important that your followers see you as genuinely interested in this subject so that they can put their faith in your advice. If you pick a niche because a so-called expert says there’s cash there, you’ll get bored of it and give up trying to make money in it.
If you’re having trouble narrowing your focus, consider your most fundamental passions. It’s okay to be a novice at something; in fact, sometimes the best leaders are those who demonstrate their learning curve.
You can specialize in anything you like, from homesteading to anti-aging to baking to weight loss to pets. You don’t need to be a PGA Pro to help other people improve their golf game; all you have to do is share what you’ve learned with them.
On Day 3, you will choose your method of monetizing your niche.
The next step is to settle on a business strategy. Various markets favor various organizational structures. If you’re selling in the toy market, for instance, you probably won’t make any online guides.
You will instead function as an affiliate marketer, recommending products and services to your audience. The same is true in the market for personal development, where digital downloads of motivational materials are more common than physical products as the best way to go.
Check to see if the niche you’re considering uses digital or physical products and reviews. Where do careers like coaching and freelancing stand? You may be also writing under private label rights on your specialized subject.
Thursday: Find a business model that can make money in your niche
Put your niche ideas to good use by pairing each one with a viable business model. In the pet industry, for instance, you could write information products and also recommend physical products as an affiliate.
Consider career coaching, parent or relationship coaching, weight loss coaching, and so on if you’re interested in becoming a coach. If you want to succeed as a leader, you need to pick a field and an approach that you are comfortable with.
Identify the types of assistance you’ll require on Day 5.
You can still have support even as a home-based entrepreneur. If you’re having trouble with a certain process or task, you can hire someone else to do it for you.
Technical tasks, such as preparing blog posts, are within the purview of some virtual assistants. If you don’t know how to do graphic design but want to market your business online, you might want to hire a freelancer.
Create a list of the chores you’d like to delegate because they’re too time-consuming, you lack the skills necessary to complete them, or both.
On the sixth day, find keywords related to your niche.
There are many benefits to conducting keyword research. It will help you rank higher in the search engines through SEO (search engine optimization), and it will also allow you to target the right people with the right content on social media.
There are both free and premium keyword tools available (remembering to only pay for what you can afford). Create a list of both broad and long-tail keywords and phrases (like “diet” or “weight loss”) to use in your marketing (such as diets for women over 40).
Step Seven: Register with A.com!
The domain name you select for your company will serve as a crucial online identity. Use your name or a set of keywords that best describe you. Get a “dot com” address for your website. It is not necessary to spend money on the other add-ons at this time.
If a customer has a domain name in mind, they will almost always use the.com extension rather than the correct.net extension. Experiment with different combinations until you find an a.com domain that fits your needs.
Create a web hosting account on Day 8.
Domain names and hosting should be purchased from different companies. Companies like Hostgator, which offers to host packages for anywhere from a single domain to an unlimited number of domains for less than ten dollars per month, are ideal for those just starting in the world of online marketing.
If your business outgrows the resources provided by your current hosting plan, don’t worry; you can always upgrade at a later date. If possible, postpone paying for unused features until later. It’s also important to avoid purchasing unnecessary extras at the store’s checkout.
Day Nine: Opt for an Effective Email Autoresponder
A high-quality email autoresponder is a worthwhile investment if you want to maintain regular contact with your intended audience. You can then use this information to reach out to people who read your blog and have bought your products before.
Most users choose a well-established company like Aweber or GetResponse. There are many available, including some that are free or have a low price tag, such as MailChimp. Autoresponder companies tend to pop up in markets and promise the world, but many of them fail or stop supporting their customers soon after their launch period ends.
On the tenth day, you should launch your blog.
After you’ve made the decisions and bought the tools you need to launch your business, the next step is to lay the groundwork for your website by installing a WordPress blog.
A blog can be quickly and easily installed on your domain using the QuickInstall feature in your cPanel. Sign in and customize it to reflect your company’s aesthetic preferences.
11th Day: Layout your email lead-capturing forms
The moment your blog goes live, head on over to your email autoresponder service and follow the prompts there to make a form. You’ll need forms for the sidebar, the bottom of each blog post, and the page where you offer your lead magnet.
Before you put the form on your site, you can change its size, color, and wording to suit your needs. Sign up for your list once it’s installed. Constantly double-check your system and save a copy of your sent emails in case of problems; that way, you can fix them right away.
Create a Converting Opt-In Freebie on Day 12
The vast majority of people do not join a mailing list solely to “receive emails.” Instead, they exchange their contact information for an incentive. In most cases, this will be a free report or series of tips, so think of something that will interest your target audience and create something that will help you gain new subscribers in your chosen online niche.
The Thirteenth Day: Schedule Your Email Content
When you’re satisfied with your freebie’s quality, head on over to your autoresponder’s follow-up email settings. You need to quickly write an email that both welcomes new subscribers and gives them the link they need to get the freebie you’ve promised.
If you’d rather do an email series, you can set up individual emails and have them sent out gradually over a week or more (depending on your promise) to the customer. You can increase the value of your present by including a bonus item that wasn’t expected.
Make sure your blog is full of helpful content by Day 14.
Your success or failure as a market leader depends on the quality of the products and services you offer. The value of the product is only part of what customers are willing to pay for. Your blog posts will give them a taste of what you have to offer through the information you share.
You’ve set aside a day to put pen to paper and produce some work that will position you as a thought leader in the minds of your audience. Don’t rush the quality of your writing if you want your posts to be bookmarked and shared.
Step 15: Claim Your Social Media Profiles
There is no cost associated with using social media to increase exposure and build your brand. You should go out and claim the social profiles in your brand’s name before you start building a name for yourself in the market.
Get the username for a site even if you have no plans to use it right now. You can do this on various social media platforms. By doing this, you can make sure that the profile name is yours when you’re ready to join the community there.
Day 16: Connect with Others and Share Your Content
Customer excitement is a key factor in building a successful brand. Sharing your content with one’s followers and friends is one way your audience can show their appreciation for and trust in you.
You should turn on a plugin for social sharing buttons and include a call to action in each blog post to get people to share the content with their friends.
You get to pick the social button style you like, down to the shape and placement. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to customize which sharing buttons (Facebook, Pinterest, email, etc.) are displayed.
You should also consider sharing your posts on social media. If you want your new blog post to go viral, you need to make sure that it is visible to your social media followers.
On the seventeenth day, you should create and market an information product.
Your niche will play a role in whether or not you decide to release your information product. Not only can you reach more potential customers, but you can also make a lot of money (thanks to affiliates who promote on your behalf).
Those who go through the trouble of developing and releasing their product are rewarded with credibility. With your affiliates’ subscribers now on your list as potential customers, list building will be a breeze.
Develop an idea for a product that can generate income and subscriber interest, such as an ebook, membership site, video course, or something else entirely. Think about a unique selling point that will also be popular with your target audience.
Put in an image order for your company’s use on Day 18.
Logos and product illustrations are essential for any business. Whether or not you have graphic design skills is a matter of debate. Just hire someone else to do it if you aren’t. Freelancers can be found at a wide range of price points, with some being ideal for those on a tighter budget.
Make them make you some header images for your blog and social media accounts, as well as for the product you’re about to release. If you don’t have any money set aside for this project, you can always use a free program like Canva.
Organize your product’s content into chapters or modules today, Day 19!
The foundation of your information product is set. You should spend today outlining, which will save time later on in the product development process. Feel free to sketch out the rest of the funnel as well if it will have multiple stages.
You can use the eBook’s table of contents as a guide. To get your video course up and running quickly, you should probably just outline the video modules and the things you want to cover in each one.
On the twentieth day, you’ll launch the product development phase.
It’s possible to make something in a day, though the time it takes will vary greatly depending on the complexity of the subject matter and the author’s level of expertise. In case you haven’t already, now is the time to get going with it. Whether you’re using text, video, audio, or a combination of these, you want to take your time and make sure the final product is the best it can be.
Make all copies for vendors and business associates by Day 21.
It’s copywriting day, so get to it! Finding online templates or swipe files to use as starting points is a great idea if you’re new to copywriting. Write a sales letter for your front-end product and any special upgrades you plan to offer during the launch.
A download page, where customers can find the product’s download link, and an affiliate page, also known as a JV page, are both necessary. Customers can find out everything they need to know about the release on the JV page, such as when it will occur, what features it will have, and where they can get their affiliate links.
On Day 22, you’ll want to create your listing and send it out to your affiliates.
Concluding a product’s development is a major success. But there’s still more for you to do! Today is the day to prepare your listings for launch on whichever marketplace you’ve chosen. This can range from Warrior Plus to JVZoo to ClickBank.
You can also save the cost of a platform by having an affiliate program launched through third-party software installed on your website. A family member is available for such an occasion.
Notify affiliates once your listing is live so they can begin promoting it and securing links. You should let people know about it on social networks like Muncheye and in groups where people discuss topics like these.
Day 23: Bring in the Best Affiliates
You can never assume people will see your launch listing and join you. You’re intent on making that happen. Start a campaign to find new affiliates by making a list of competitors or top affiliates you’d like to promote for you.
Send them an email or a direct message detailing your product, why their audience will love it, and the launch date. Make sure they have full access to a sample so they can try it out for themselves and give a fair review.
Promote additional informational products (Day 24)
Even if you’re working on your information products as an online business owner, you should be promoting the products of others as well. These products can be found on the marketplace you’re using to list your own, and you can apply promptly to Hub.
Before recommending someone, it’s smart to get a review copy or buy the product yourself. You shouldn’t put your reputation as an expert in your field at risk by recommending a product that doesn’t live up to your standards.
Day 25: Search for Realistic Marketing Chances
In the affiliate marketing world, you’re not limited to promoting digital goods. Consider the physical objects as well. In certain fields, you can find them more easily. For example, there may not be as many physical goods for the relationship niche as there are for the gardening niche.
Amazon, Commission Junction, Share-a-Sale, and even manufacturers themselves are all viable options. They will probably check out your site to see if you’re a legitimate affiliate, so you’ll want to make sure it has some good information.
26th Day: Write Some Blog Reviews
Once you have the necessary permissions in place, you can start writing product reviews on your blog for both digital and physical goods. Even if your primary motivation for writing product reviews is to earn affiliate commissions, you won’t last long in the field if you don’t also care about helping your readers make informed purchasing decisions.
If you’re going to review something, at least do so honestly. An in-depth review that covers the product’s features, additional advice, and potential pitfalls will go a long way toward earning people’s trust.
Twenty-seventh Day: Invest Money Where It Makes Sense for Your Business
Make it a priority today to assess whether or not you need to reinvest any of your recent financial gains. It could be a tool that helps you work more efficiently or a course that helps you advance to the next level.
Day 28 is “Repurpose Your Content.”
The content you’ve already created, whether it’s emails, blog posts, a lead magnet, or a product, can be repurposed to reach a wider audience and generate more leads. Change from written to moving images, or vice versa.
Make use of the list of suggestions in a blog post by transforming it into an infographic and posting it on Pinterest. Take a video and convert it into a podcast by taking the audio out of it. Putting what you already have to work for your company can be done in an infinite number of creative ways.
The 29th Day: Analyze the Prospects of a Premium Coaching Deal
As you near the end of your 30-day plan, think about alternate revenue streams you might have overlooked, like coaching. You can make a lot of money by offering expensive one-on-one or small group coaching services online.
Prepare a plan for expanding your business’s revenue streams by Day 30.
You should start thinking about the future right now. Can we expect you to diversify into new markets and/or employ new business models, or will you continue to focus on the tried and true? The ultimate aim is to reach a point where your business is self-sustaining in terms of revenue growth.
