With all the extraordinary online information available to newcomers, it’s amazing that so many of them make such grave blunders. I understand they want to get started quickly and not waste time, but these three common mistakes can hinder their progress in establishing a presence.
Here they are in no particular order:
Newbie Mistake #1 – Trying to find the Golden Goose instead of doing the work. Many newcomers make this common mistake when they enter the Internet marketing arena. Internet marketing is not about finding the perfect hands-off business opportunity. It’s about establishing a foundation that you can work from to build your credibility, visibility and sales.
Here’s what to do instead. Start conversations with an audience; engage and help people. Instead of trying to find the quick path to cash, decide how to establish a community around your passion. People who are willing to give more to an audience find success faster than those who don’t. Reveal your heart and business will find its way to your doorstep.
Newbie Mistake #2 – Neglecting to establish a home on the Internet where you’re providing content on a regular basis. This means people forget about you because you’re not making it a point to stay visible. If people aren’t aware of your existence, they can’t engage with you either!
Here’s what to do instead. Grab your namesake domain name and install a blog. This will help establish your name in the search engines and provides you with a means to keep in touch with an audience on a regular schedule. If you’re unable to create content consistently, hire a ghostwriter to produce the content for you.
Newbie Mistake #3 – You don’t become a product creator. Regardless of the niche you’re in, it’s imperative that you create a product to call your own. This helps establish your expertise within a niche and provides a nice residual income to boot!
Here’s what to do instead. Create a product that solves the most pressing problem faced by your target audience. Whether it’s a membership site, an eBook or a simple Kindle book – don’t wait! The sooner you get a product created, the easier it is for people to perceive you as a helper and authority figure.
As you can see, the three most common mistakes newbies make in Internet marketing are avoidable. By making some simple adjustments to how you establish an online presence, you’ll increase your chances for success, and not hamper your progress, as an Internet marketer.
