If you are doing internet marketing on a daily basis whether it be blogging, promoting services or products with affiliate links, creating audios and videos, etc., then you already understand the importance of marketing to your success.
Implementation is extreme in this business but if you are new to it, then it may be a good idea for you to get some guidance if you don’t already have it.
The first step is to familiarize yourself with popular web marketing techniques such as video and content production. You can get many forms of marketing if you search online but these two are your most effective right now.
Once you know how to market your blog, you start to implement the techniques you learned every single day. Unfortunately, this is where many new marketers make costly mistakes.
To ensure you get the most out of your new found internet marketing knowledge, you need to create an internet marketing schedule. Now, you may have to make revisions along the way especially if you have kids like I do, but at least have one created so that you can get all of your income producing activities done in a timely manner.
When it is properly complied and used, a schedule will increase your productivity. Remember, the more traffic you drive to your blog, the more your earnings potential increases.
If that isn’t enough reason to create a schedule, here are some more:
Creating a schedule is simple.
An internet marketing schedule is essentially a detailed to-do list. What you can do is start with times. Set aside blocks of times, like in one or two hour increments. For each time slot, write a task or two of what needs to get accomplished. For example, do you want to submit an article to a directory or send out Tweets to your Twitter followers? If so, add to your schedule.
Options are everywhere.
What I mean by this is not only is making an internet marketing schedule easy, but you have many options. You can write a schedule by hand, in a Word document, or even on your Iphone, Ipad, or Android. Simple stuff. You also have the option of creating daily, weekly, or monthly schedules. I prefer daily schedules for the extra stuff like Social Media posting and so forth. Income producing activities should be done daily which means creating content using your
blog, a video, and/or an audio and syndicating it everywhere you can.
It’s your personal guide.
When you are familiar with internet marketing tactics, it is easy to advertise online. Unfortunately, many run into problems with distractions. It is easy to go from using the internet to research to reading the news or the latest celebrity gossip. Very easy. Try to stay focused. To prevent this from happening, stick to the script and use your schedule as a guide. You want to avoid distractions, but if you absolutely cannot and an interruption happens, don’t spend time trying to remember what you were doing or were about to do, just look at your schedule and get back to work.
It’s great for motivation.
A lot of times our minds get cluttered and we just don’t know where to begin. Look at your list as a way of making progress in your business. This will help you stay on track and be more productive each day. If you don’t get something done within the specified time frame, don’t fret about it. Do your best to fit it in for another time. Don’t stress yourself out because you will lose your motivation that way. Your schedule is there to add pressure and serve as motivation, not stress. When we know we only have X amount of time to complete a task, we tend to put forth more effort and increase our productivity.
Progress and stretch.
There are many tactics in internet marketing. You cannot implement them all in one day, but you can definitely get the process started. When doing so, don’t put yourself all over the place. Master a strategy and then master another. I’m not saying you have to place all your attention on one marketing tactic. But you don’t want to do too much at one time. Market in different ways but master one strategy at a time so that it doesn’t become overwhelming. The best way to market is to make yourself visible everywhere.
