The 5 Biggest Internet Marketing Mistakes I wish I had Avoided
A very wise man once told me “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.” I hope that by sharing these 5 internet marketing mistakes will help you avoid them saving you time and money.
Internet marketing mistake #1
When I first started internet marketing I was afraid I would make a mistake so I spent too much time searching the web researching, reading forums etc all very important.However I wasn’t taking any action. Imagine I was teaching you how to ride a bike I could talk for hours instructing you what to do but until you actually get on the bike and do it for yourself you are not actually going to learn to ride the bike. My advice is to learn a little bit then put that into action
Internet marketing mistake #2
In the early days I was guilty of jumping around from one strategy to the next not really mastering any. One week SEO the next PPC then email marketing. This turned out to be a recipe for disaster. I recommend you avoid this at all costs,don’t make the same mistake as I did, learn one skill really well then move on to the next. Eventually you will want to outsource some of these strategies to free up your time so obviously you will have to know how to do them yourself
Internet marketing mistake #3
Having unrealistic expectations is a very common mistake I was guilty of it too in the beginning. I was all excited and thought I could put up a couple of ads on Facebook and the money would just come pouring in – but realistically internet marketing is subject to the same laws as the rest of life – you get what you pay for – and the harder you work the more you earn. There is no “silver bullet Secret” think would I……?
- If I was making thousands of dollars a month with no effort,would I really be selling it in an e-book for $19
- If you buy 2,000 visitors for $5, they are probably not going to convert very well.
- If someone writes an article for me and charges $4 its probably not going to be very good
- If it doesn’t take a lot of effort, you probably won’t make much.
Internet marketing mistake #4
If you are looking for get rich quick schemes and easy ways to make money then this Internet marketing business is not for you. There are no short cuts believe me I tried to find them much to my shame. It takes dedication, persistence and lots of hard work. There are no magical short cuts be very wary of people who say otherwise.
Internet marketing mistake #5
For months I was running campaigns without any tracking, a big mistake if you are not tracking your not marketing. You are just throwing mud at the wall and hoping some sticks. Its vital to know where your successes and failures are coming from. Then you can focus your attention on the winning campaigns and scale up
