Just posted a poll on LinkedIn: What online activity brings you the most new business? http://polls.linkedin.com/p/68379/gfolt What say you? »
I lean towards the Permission-Based Marketing System (websites designed to attract, qualify and begin relationships with new customers on autopilot), but wanted to find out how most people are using the web to market their business these days.What are you using and how is it working for you from the perspective of getting new business? Do you track the results of your online marketing efforts? Here are the choices in the recent LinkedIn Poll: Are you active on Social Media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter?
Are you building an email list with an opt-in page?
Are you advertising online with Adwords?
or do you send an eZine or email newsletter to your offline contact list? Are there other activities that you do that do not fall into these categories? All of these strategies are important. Some may work better for you than others, or you may have more comfort with some than others. Please comment below and share your experience with these strategies. If you are on LinkedIn please participate in the Poll: "What online activity brings you the most new business?' http://polls.linkedin.com/p/68379/gfolt If you aren't on LinkedIn (it's a really good idea if you are in any type of business or sales) please join me and request a connection if you are not already in my network. All the Best,

Putting all the money I have invested in Internet Marketing courses to work.
1. A big thanks to everyone who took immediate action on the Marketing Monsoon Mega Web Site Promotion Campaign offer last week! We got started immediately with those who sign up and we are already seeing web sites jumping higher in the rankings!
2. A Tip: This week I had a revelation about the key to success in marketing online. I realized the one thing that makes or breaks your efforts to reach your audience or not is: writing. The key is getting lot’s of quality content or information out there on the web and on your site.
“Well, that’s not news,” you might say. The revelation was that writing lots of good content is the exact place I get hung up!
While I can write, I’m not fast. It’s not my favorite part of the internet marketing process. I love teaching and solving problems with technology. But, getting myself to sit down and knock off a few articles a week is a challenge, and absolutely critical to meeting my goals online.
So, why is it so important to write? Shouldn’t you just be able to put up your web site with an article or two and have people just show up? Well, no. The internet marketing game is all about getting found by search engines. The businesses that have the best content on their sites and on other sites that link to their sites win the game.
The most effective strategy to date to get ranked in the search engines is to create an information rich blog-type web site with lots of good quality content, and then start spreading good quality content all over the web with links back to your site. I’ve seen it work over and over again. It’s what we teach with the Marketing Monsoon system. So why don’t more people do it? It's a lot of work and a lot writing!
Here’s your tip: Don’t let your aversion to writing stop you from succeeding in your online business!
- It’s the life blood of your business on the internet!
- Set up a system or a schedule. (One friend of mine disciplines himself to write at least 15 minutes or 300 words a day.)
- Hire someone to write for you. (We offer that service to our clients because we know it’s what gets in the way of getting the marketing done.)
3. Now, here’s my question: (all responses are appreciated!)
Where do you get stuck marketing your business on the web?
Have a great productive day!
