Are You Chasing Your Marketing Goals?

If you establish a site with the marketing goal of making money from it, you need to be clear on what those goals consist of. Once you know the goals of the site, you have a driver for the content. That doesn’t mean your content has to or even should be, sales driven. It needs to provide your future customer with the knowledge and tools to help solve the problem your marketing goals are for. Your future customer will be able to develop a relationship with you through your content.

Moving Forward, Slowly and Relentlessly

When I look back over the last couple of weeks, it doesn’t look so bad. While I haven’t posted on here, I have been creating and posting on some of my other sites. That is actually good. Writing is like any other skill, the more you do it, the better you get. Learning to earn online has writing at its heart, so I really need to be the best I can be.

Why I’m Really Starting to Love Divi by Elegant Themes

I’ve been quiet the last couple of weeks. That doesn’t mean I’ve been lacking focus. I have been focused on building a website for a non-profit I belong to. I used the project to further test the WordPress theme I have in use on this site. The theme is a premium theme by Elegant Themes called Divi.

Find Your Focus If You Expect to Build a Business

Well, another week has passed and somehow it seems I’ve not accomplished much towards my goals. When I take a close look back at the week, I have done some work towards my goals but I’ve also let other activities take precedence. It’s not that the other activities don’t have value and importance, it is more that I’ve not been deliberate in giving focus to my goals.

Beat Procrastination Before It Beats You

Procrastination, are there any of us who don’t do so at some point? I know I can be very guilty of it at times. It’s so easy to engage in activities that don’t take any real effort, any real thought and any chance of not succeeding.

Every Journey Begins With the First Step

May 15, 2016 | Product Creation

There are many approaches on this journey to earn online. Your biggest challenge is to determine your first step. You can eventually try all the approaches if you want to. Just not all at once. Start with one. Get a firm handle on how to use it, implement and then learn the next choice.

Product Creation First

Since my first desire is to write. I’m going to jump into product creation. I have several ideas for topics. In the next day or so, I will be choosing one and create a short report on that topic. The report will not be to sell, it will be used to generate mailing list signups.

Building A List

Yes, the money is, and always has been — in the list. Email is a basic need when it comes to earning online income. Once you have the email address of your visitor or customer, you can develop a relationship which leads to future purchases.

Some of those on your list may never buy. They may, however, refer your name to their friends. So, all your lists members have value and must be treated as such.

My choice for building my list is Mail Chimp. They are free to get started. You can have up to 2,000 subscribers to which you send up to 12,000 emails a month for free. Once I hit the 2,000 subscriber mark I can subscribe for $20 a month and unlimited emails until I hit 2,500 subscribers.

I could switch to one of the other popular providers like GetResponse or AWeber for future lists. In reviewing their sites, their pricing is not much better than Mail Chimp so it will depend on my experience using them.

By then, I should be generating income to use to pay for my lists. I’ll have the freedom on this journey to decide at that point.

So there is my first plan on this journey. It’s pretty basic, but fancy isn’t needed.

Have you taken your first step? What was it?
