I love working online because there is almost no competition. That may sound strange, but the truth is that most people are not marketing their businesses on a daily business and simply cannot be found by their prospects. It isn’t a case of who is the best in their niche; it’s who is doing the marketing every day to let people know they are there and available. Learn how to market, create a plan and a schedule, and your business will skyrocket. It really is that easy.
Spend one full work day creating your marketing and visibility plan. Every week you can make time to post to your blog, repurpose that post into an article, stop by Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to update your status, hold or schedule a free teleseminar, and email your list with some valuable free information. Believe it or not, there are people trying to make money on the internet who do not do most of these things even once a month.
Once a week find a new way to market yourself. You can advertise in someone else’s ezine, record a teleseminar and turn it into a podcast, write a short report, and add more content to your membership site. These are just a few ideas for how to increase your online visibility by marketing yourself to a wider audience. Remember, marketing is a process that never ends. Find new ways to do this and watch your online business grow. Because most people do not do this, you will eliminate most of the competition simply by taking action.
