Why Erik Rides a Limo: His Internet Marketing Strategy

In 2003, Erik brought his first laptop home without a hint of what he
exactly wanted to do, except to follow what others have been doing: chat
online. He was sold to the idea of online dating, and believing that
chatting online is a cheaper alternative than downing bottles of beer at
the local pub, at exactly 9 AM, Eastern Standard Time, he hit off his
first key: www…

The rest was history.

Today, Erik owns 120 websites and a vibrant company employing 12 people
in a plush condominium he also calls “home”. His online dating was a
success, having found Jane, but he hit “jackpot” with online marketing.
What turned out to be a pastime became a lucrative endeavor for a guy who
was not computer savvy to start off with, and whose only concept of a
mouse was that little pest chewing up his shoe lace.

Jason, also hit his keyboard in 2003, precisely with the same line of
thought, but with a little twist: to charm an Asian. He has a leaning
towards Asian women because his mother was half Taiwanese. However, when
he got online, he found something he loved to do, so he ventured into
online marketing, too.

Four years later today, Jason is still driving his old and weather-beaten
pick-up truck, while Erik drives around town in a shiny limo. Did Erik
hit the online lotto?
Of course, not. Erik merely uncovered a marketing truth, which Jason and
his peers saw, but dismissed as something less relevant. They followed
the trail where all others have gone, while Erik stayed and pondered on
what was already there, until he found an
Internet Marketing Strategy that works!

Common mistake in marketing online is in believing that traffic is the
end-all and be-all of online success. Nothing can be farther from the
truth! Long queue of online visitors to your site is a good indication
that you have struck the right formula in getting them there where you
want them, but becoming popular is NOT the way to go. At some point it
can help a lot, however, the litmus test on real online success is on
being profitable (while remaining popular).

WORK ON YOUR CONVERSION.

Combine traffic competitiveness with high conversion results and it is
game over – in your favor. Unless you learn how to convert as high as you
invite traffic to view your site, you won’t rake in success like Erik
did.

Conversion is leading your online visitors from point A (just viewing
your site) to point B (deciding to make a purchase). The initial
challenge is on how to get them over to your site, but the killer punch
is on making them buy! This is the surest way to make money.

Erik shares these two easy-to-do steps to Internet Marketing for Online
Business:

1.) BUILD TRAFFIC REGULARLY. Get more people to view your site; by law of
numbers, more viewers = the greater is the possibility for online
conversion. Building traffic however is not a spur of the moment
activity. It should be a life-long (for as long as you want to build and
develop your online business, that is) process. It should have a well-
thought of plan - a master plan.

2.) CONVERT AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY. Present your website in such a way that
leaving it becomes difficult. Enthrall your online visitors with your
designs, but do not be carried away too much. No matter how attractive
your graphics are, it’s content that can sustain your online viewers’
interest, which will make them pay you another visit.

Content however must not only be entertaining but persuasively
interesting. It must drive home the point that it is to your viewers’
advantage if they follow your “calls to action”.

Build trust. Your website should not “oversell” its message, as this
gives rise to skepticism. Provoke interest by providing facts they can
check out with other online sources.

Is your site easy to navigate? Nothing else can drive your online visitor
away faster than not being able to accomplish a particular task on your
site, because of navigational problems.
Track improvements on regular basis. You will only know how far you have
gone if you compare yesterday’s performance to today’s gain. Adjust when
necessary. Flexibility has its own power.

In the final analysis, unless you convert effectively, you cannot expect
to create a lucrative source of income from online business. Traffic
alone, though very helpful, cannot cut the chase from online obscurity to
online success.

Best Internet Marketing Strategies proven by successful people who
cracked their own online success, dictate that every factor should
interplay harmoniously with one another, like strings of a guitar. To
focus on traffic alone won’t help; in the same token, conversion can’t be
helped without traffic.

That’s how Erik did it, which Jason had to learn, unless he loves to
drive in his beat-up truck
a little longer.
