Internet marketing is fast becoming the largest avenue for income.
Your website is where all the traffic is driven to so it must be
user friendly to draw a reader’s interest immediately or you lose
them. It only takes a few seconds to make an impression so you want
it to be a positive one. Your website must look professional and
easy to read. Since most people want to understand what your website
is about, you may want to use images with links. A picture is worth
a 1000 words and what you don’t want is a lot of clutter.
Assuming that you have your website in place, here are 3 powerful
secrets to make money online:
1. Short articles: Writing short topical articles based on keyword
searches. We call this article marketing which is a powerful way to
draw interest to your website. This only takes a short time and your
costs are absolutely nothing. There are many article directories in
which you may post your article but the largest is Ezine Articles.
Articles that are posted in this fashion give you a target market,
which makes the leads higher quality.
2. Short Videos: Creating short videos are another powerful tool you
can use to drive traffic your website. You can be smart and take the
article that you have just written and make a short 2 – 4 minute
video with the exact content. Not only does this save you valuable
time but also is real easy. Either by using a web cam in which you
just read your article making it sound like a story or by creating a
slide show with music and voice over. In each case it is extremely
important that you always include your website link to drive traffic
to your website.
3. Social Media: This is one of the newest marketing strategies
today. They’re almost 550 million people using just Facebook as of
2010 not to mention the other Social Media sites available today.
The trick to the Social Media sites is to keep in mind that they are
social sites, what is meant by social is that they are friends
talking to friends. People are building relationships over the
Internet and that is their primary function. You don’t want to
plaster a bunch of business ads you will lose out. On the other hand
when you build relationships you build trust and therefore
creditability. When you have creditability your friends will be more
likely to refer friends.
Any form of marketing that you decide to do you must create a daily
habit. The power of creating a daily habit is that you add to your
free marketing each day, every little bit that you do will drive a
little more traffic to your website. A little each day will go along
way and the best news is that these marketing avenues are free. What
you do each day will pay dividends for years to come.
