The mistake most people make when they start out online, is to simply use the internet to either share their business, products or affiliate links or to pay for solo ads (or other forms of ads) directly to their company links.
Sometimes people even join multiple social media platforms and groups to simply paste links to their business or affiliate links with the hope that someone will somehow see THEIR link and want to buy.
THAT DOES NOT WORK!
Unfortunately, if you are simply sharing your affiliate or business links or spending money on advertising which leads directly to your company links - even if you make a couple of sales - this is not a lasting or profitable business model.
In the long run you will either make a small amount of money (but you leave a LOT of money on the table) or, more likely you'll lose money.
Online marketing is about getting your offer, your business/products in front of the right audience. It is about attracting people TO YOU.
Follow this 3 Step Formula and you will no longer need to go out and find people.
This is called Attraction Marketing
So one of the most important things you can do it identify your target market. Most often this is easier than you think. Think about it, your target market is probably a lot like you... What are you struggling with right now? Why did you join your business?
OK... So what are YOU looking for, to help with those problems? Right... THOSE are the kinds of things you need to be able to offer to people online in order to attract them.
Any aha moments yet?
You MUST first attract people with a simple solution to their initial problem (for example, it might be that they've run out of people to talk to about their business or they want to learn how to monetize their business - or it might be something health related!)
