CMS web design & online marketing


Trying to build an online business requires learning new skills and balancing multiple moving parts in order for your business to function like a well-oiled machine. It can be intimidating when you discover how little you really know. Every time you learn something new there will be something different to find out.

It will almost feel like a never-ending process to you ... but rest assured that in time you will master the basics and get your ducks in a row. Below are 3 common difficulties that most beginners in marketing will face. Once you know what it is, you know what to do.


1. Choosing a business model

This is by far the most important decision you need to make. There are a myriad of methods when it comes to making money online. There's freelancing, arbitrage, product creation, e-commerce, Kindle publishing, domains, and much more.

The key to being able to get online faster than most other people is to focus on one business model. Ideally, you should choose one that you are naturally suitable for.
For example, if you prefer to work for others, freelancing is for you. There are many freelancers like writers, copywriters, graphic designers, software developers who earn 5 to 6 digit sums as freelancers. If you are good, you will be wanted.

If you prefer to start your own business by being your own boss, it is your skills or natural talents that you need to look into. If you are good at writing, the Kindle publisher might be calling your name.

If you enjoy teaching others, you can create courses and bring your own products to market. So ask yourself what you really enjoy doing and what you are good at. That is the secret to your online success. Do what you are naturally good at.


2. Master the “technical stuff”

Thousands of newbies give up their online marketing dreams just because they are overwhelmed with the technical stuff. The truth is that most of the technical details are easy if you know how to do it.

And if you really don't want that, you can always hire a freelancer to do it for you. Never give up your online business just because you cannot solve a technical problem. Rest assured that there are thousands of skilled and reliable freelancers out there who can help you.

For the most part, you can learn pretty much anything from setting up a blog to automated delivery of a product and more by simply doing a few Google searches or searching for tutorials on YouTube.

These 2 free resources are lifesavers. Technical questions can be intimidating, but don't let them get you down on your online marketing path. There is no rush. Take the time to solve them or pay someone to do it for you.


3. Learn how to generate traffic

Traffic generation is one of those skills that you MUST have in order to be successful online. While you can hire agencies to do this for you, it becomes very expensive if you are a beginner. It is better to learn by yourself so that you do not have to rely on others. The key to being successful in generating traffic is to focus on one or two methods. Not several.

For example, you can focus on Pinterest marketing and Facebook ads. Once you have decided on the traffic generation method (s), stick with the methods you chose until you see results.
It may take you some time to get the hang of it, but once you master the basics, you will see a few trickles of traffic to begin with ... and it will grow into massive amounts of traffic.

The 3 difficulties above are nothing to worry about. Take a proactive approach and act consistently and focused on a daily basis and online success will inevitably be yours.
