The other day I was speaking with a new client and she brought up an interesting point . . . have you ever thought of this? Years and years ago we used a “wall” to communicate with the world.
People would write on walls and rocks telling their stories, telling about their journey, what to expect and educating each other. Now millions of years later we have started to use a “wall” on Facebook and Twitter to communicate; sharing our stories now, what we have learned, how we can educate and help people across the world. Obviously our way now is a lot faster and e bit easier. Interesting how things come around.
What’s that saying, “don’t reinvent the wheel”? Thinking of how a “Wall” has always been a way to communicate across the world to others, back then it took a lot longer and was much more artistic in a way. Now we have the world at our finger tips and we are only a “wall” post away from communicating with people all over the world.
When I entered the Internet Marketing world it seemed so surreal to me, being able to send emails, instant messaging, pictures, documents, etc so fast and being able to do business with people all over the world. They did not even have to be in the same city as me as the internet it allows us to do business everywhere! That is the beauty of Internet Marketing, we are able to now grow our businesses nationwide and build those relationships in order to do that.
Internet Marketing can work wonders for your business if you provide a service that you can do from anywhere or have an online store that people can order from anywhere. Have you ever read the book “The 4 hour work week” or “Beach Money”? These books talk about being able to have an online business where you can work from wherever you are and all you need is a computer and internet access. They talk about setting your business up in such a way where you are earning residual income so you do not have to be sitting in front of the computer 24/7 working. If you set up your Internet Marketing plan correctly, you can do this with your business as well!
I challenge you this week to take a look at your Internet Marketing strategy and see if it includes the following things:
- Social Media Plan (Facebook, Facebook Page, Twitter, and LinkedIn)
- Have a real blog (wordpress or blogger)
- YouTube Channel
- Posting Blogs and video blogs at least once a week
- Using other online tools like; Google Maps, Yelp, Four Square, Plaxo etc.
- Making sure you have your backlinks set up to your blog ( You can use Squidoo for this)
- Educating people via your blog posts and social media posts
If you need help figuring out an Internet Marketing plan I would love to assist you. I look forward to seeing more of you online.
