3 Things You Can Do Right Now To Market Your Online Business
Now to keep it simple, let’s just say all you have a business or service and a computer.
(At some point you will differently want to host your own WordPress blog. I will write more about the reasons why it’s very important for hosting your own site in another post.)
2nd – Write two articles, 250-300 words each on your passions or about the field your in. Note* DO NOT mention your personal product(s) or service(s) or a sales page (that comes later). Here is couple of examples: Say you’re in real estate. It would go something like… “10 tips on what to look for when buying a home” or “How to find out if a community is right for your family”. Say you’re a teacher… “Five ways to improve your child’s study habits”. You get the picture. What you are doing is creating quality content. These will attract a larger audience. NO Selling! Now post these articles on your blog and be sure to have filled out your contact information, bio/contact number / email / Picture of yourself. Now share this either by email with your friends and colleagues, and if you’re using social media, sites like facebook, twitter and LinkedIn to name a few. Be sure to say something like, just posted a new article on my blog about… you fill in the blank.
3rd – If you have a web cam do the same as above in step 2. If you don’t have one, be sure and ask for a web cam for your birthday. Now you’ll want to keep your videos between 3 and 5 minutes long. This way you are valuing other people’s time.
Then post your new video to your blog, facebook etc. If your just starting out YouTube and Metacafe work great. Also read about how to embed your video too your web page or blog. That’s it. If you have relevant content, meaning is it informative, enlightening or entertaining. People will share it with others and they will contact you. Asking you for more information and what you do to earn an income online. Then and only then do you talk about your produce or service. What you are doing is your creating trust with your articles, so that people will seek you out for your advice and services. This is Attraction Marketing.
