The internet is like any other gold rush throughout history, and the numbers of people who come onboard each day attests to that fact. Incomes and wealth of all levels are being achieved like never before. The person who is the most vulnerable is the beginner marketer because of common mistakes that really can be damaging.
All you need to succeed is offer a fabulous product/service that over-delivers in value and people will buy it – that is myth number one. If you’re not laughing at that scenario, rest assured that is light years away from reality. No one knows your site exists except you, your significant other, and maybe your mom; time to let the rest of the world know, too. Your very best bet is to figure out how to generate targeted buyers, from your market, to your site’s front porch. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re not some multinational corporation where all you do is make a press release and millions of people are flocking to you. There are so many ways to drive traffic that it isn’t funny at all; so we urge you to do some research on your own… you have to do that, anyway. We hope to have put that little piece of wrong thinking to bed for you.
Some think it’s a myth that it is not required to have your site designed by a professional in order to make a full-time net income. For the largest margin of success, all serious businesses at some point will have their site designed with optimization in mind. It’s not all about sales copy that converts, important yes, but there are design conversion principles at play too. It depends on your target market, but generally speaking your site must have some minimum level of design acceptability. Concepts and real ideas that you’re trustworthy and professional enough to do business with are necessary. Bottom line about it is that your site must make a good impression all the time. Try to learn the principles of effective design, and then either do it yourself or hire a professional within your budget.
It certainly seems that some marketers consider it unnecessary to use effective sales copy in their marketing. It’s just so much of a fact that it’s not remotely humorous; you need to have decently written copy, at the bare minimum, to have any kind of a decent conversion rate. We’ve seen copy written in all kinds of ways, most of it is very poorly written, too. If you don’t know how to write one, spend some money and have a copywriter do the job for you. But don’t do the mistake of depending on general content to sell for you because you need copy that’s action drive and actually highlights your products benefits in the best possible manner. In conclusion, internet marketing can make your richest dreams come true. But just like any business venture, you have to work hard and think smart in order to be successful and not believe unproven concepts.
