Here are the five guidelines for successful Internet marketing….
In carrying out a successful internet marketing, you must have work that you have lined up to perform everyday. This include tasks that you must accomplish that has to do with your online business. It is not all about writing it down, you have to make sure that it is spiritually followed as well.
When I started Blogging about five years ago, I did not start with any How to, I learn by mistake. Over the years I have studied what worked for others as well as what is working for me. So also , while you are trying to run a successful internet marketing, you have to know what works and what does not work. It is all about continuing with what works and jettisoning those that are not working.
One of the key to a successful internet marketing is excellent customer service. I strongly believe that online businesses should spend more on customer support. There was a time that my Hosting expired and I need to pay $38 to Namecheap to renew my Hosting . Due to the fact that I could not afford that in this recession, I had to look in the direction of Nigerian hosting company. So far none of them had been able to beat Namecheap support team in terms of excellent customer service support. I stand to be corrected.
As a Digital Marketer, you must be willing to learn new things. When I first started blogging, I did not set up my domain myself. My very good friend did it for me and I am always at his mercy. I have to tell myself I can do it. I took up the challenge and I was able to learn a little bit about Cpanel management and hosting generally. I can also say as far as Search Engine Optimisation and other tasks of Internet marketing is concerned, I am still learning and I will continue to learn until I become a force to reckon with in Blogging not only in Nigeria alone but the world at large.
#5 Stay focused
In Nigeria today , every lazy people wants to blog. You need to ask How many of the are willing to wait. Lynda said she waited for 8 years, same for Seun Osewa of Nairaland. One thing I have come to realise is that Internet Marketing requires a lot of patience. The bottom line is that do not be patient waiting for nothing. You have to be sure you are doing the right thing. No matter how much you try, it will take about a year for a blog to pick up. It is a process and you can not jump it. A child must crawl before he walks. So therefore, in Internet marketing, patience is a virtue.
