Top 7 Secrets Of Successful Internet Marketers
When it comes to Internet marketing, there are two main groups of people: successful Internet marketers… and the rest of us. Successful Internet marketers are able to drive large amounts of qualified traffic to their sites (and usually they have also found ways to better convert that traffic that they are receiving).
So what are they doing that the rest of us may not be? What do they know that we don't know? Ever find yourself wishing that you could just get into the brain of a successful marketer for one day; find out those Internet marketing secrets that they don't want to divulge to others?
Well, wish granted. I am here to fill you in on their secrets. I am here to share with you some of the top things that Internet marketers know.
Here are the top 7 secrets of successful Internet marketers:
1. Google is #1
Some inexperienced Internet marketers try to "outthink" the system. They see others going after Google traffic, so they choose to ignore Google and concentrate on other traffic sources. That is a mistake.
There is a good reason why so many marketers, especially the successful ones, put so much effort into getting high results in the Google SERPs. That is because, when it comes to organic traffic, Google generally drives more traffic than most of the other organic traffic sources.
2. Direct Navigation is Still Relevant
Is type-in direct navigation traffic still "a thing?" I mean, Internet marketers have been buying misspell and keyword-based domain names for years. Hasn't that traffic source kind of become obsolete, or at least tapped out?
Absolutely not! Many successful Internet marketers are still making a killing off of these additional domain names (either through making money off of parked pages or by directing those additional domain names to their websites), and there are still many, many relevant domain names available for purchase.
3. Content is Key
This is yet another area where inexperienced and unsuccessful Internet marketers try to beat the system. They think that they can get around having to put in the effort to create high quality content for their site.
The truth is, if you want to find as much success online as possible, you can't forgo this important aspect. Successful marketers understand the importance of high quality content, so they put in the effort that they need on this aspect of successful marketing.
4. Experts are Rewarded
Google loves to see someone that works to show them that they are experts. These people, who prove their credibility, and who prove that they are a resource to others, are rewarded by Google (of course, with better rankings in the SERPs). What is one of the best ways to prove that you are an expert? Through high quality, informative content of course!
5. Lead Generation Hasn't Gone Anywhere
Many successful Internet marketers are still purchasing leads. They use these leads to build up email lists, generate more social traffic, send out offers to, etc. These marketers want you to think that they are able to do it all on their own. Well, usually they aren't. Many times they supplement their other marketing efforts by purchasing leads from other lead sources.
6. 1st Tier Isn't the Only Way
Yes, Google is the best source of organic traffic. It is worth your time to try to make it up as high in Google as possible.
But when it comes to paid traffic, for the most part a click is a click. Although Google still may have the ability to drive the highest amounts of traffic even when it comes to paid methods, you may be able to find cheaper clicks on other search engines, especially 2nd and 3rd tier networks.
So when it comes to your PPC efforts, don't be afraid to think out of the box a little bit and explore other paid networks.
7. It's All About Time
Think you're too small of a fish in too big of a pond? Think again. It's not too late to get into any specific market or niche… if you are willing to put in the effort it takes. You see, it takes time to find success online. But the beauty behind that is, if you are willing to put in the time and effort, you have no limits! You can go into whatever industry you want, and find the success you want, as long as you are willing to put in the needed work.
Don't let the big fish who have come before you make you think that it is too late for you. It's not too late; you just have to get to work!
