You want to be an online marketer. But, where do you learn everything you need to know? How do you figure it all out? How do you put all the pieces together? And most important, how do you make money working online?
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to just get started. Take one step at a time. Learn one thing and put it into practice before you move on to the next thing.
Facebook can be a goldmine for finding people who are interested in your business or the products and services you sell. Use your personal profile for socializing and a Facebook page to promote your business.
Twitter is another social media site where you can meet people, build relationships and promote your business. But, you have to do it all in 140 characters or less.
There are several other social media sites to explore: YouTube, Google+, Instagram and more. I would recommend starting with the most popular sites: Facebook and Twitter. Then, add other sites if you have time. Social media can be time consuming, especially if you get caught up in the social part of it.
All the social media sites can work for online marketing, but be aware that you don’t own any of them. Each site has their own rules that you must follow or pay the consequences. Facebook can famously put you in jail … limit what you can do, if anything, for an undetermined amount of time. Twitter can stop you from adding followers if you don’t maintain the proper ratio of followers to following.
The only thing you can really own online is a hosted website or blog. This doesn’t include the free sites like Blogger, WordPress.com, Wix or Weebly. You don’t own them. And you won’t get much, if any, attention from the search engines.
With a domain name and hosting account, you can have your own site. Think of it as your home on the Internet. The place where your digital footprint lives. Everything else you do online should point to your website. And your site should reflect YOU. Because one of the most important reasons to have a website is to brand yourself.
I think of my site as my personal library of resources. And I’m sharing it with you. Please leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you comment below and share on Facebook.
