The Internet Marketer - The One Thing You Need To Create Passive Income and Earn Money Online - Pt 8

The Internet Marketer - The One Thing You Need To Create Passive Income and Earn Money Online - Pt 8

On our journey to become an internet marketer, so far we have explored the concept of niches, keywords and how they relate to the information people are searching for and I have shown some free, useful tools to explore the demographics of the buyers for that market. Put simply:
1/ Find a market that has buyers who are willing to buy to satisfy their needs.
2/ Know just who your buyers are. Age, income, education, interests.
3/ Create and/or promote a product which fills one or more of the needs of those buyers.

In this article we will be looking at two more ways to gauge interest in a niche. Just as computer memory is expanding exponentially, so are the possibilities of the internet. These changes occur every day and they are distracting from the focus to earn money online. Which is not to say that we should ignore the advances that are being made, but rather that we should be aware that not every new bright bauble is absolutely essential to our quest.

I have spoken previously about the many emails which find their way to your inbox once you commence to show an interest in making money online. Suddenly, offers of new, must have ebooks, software, concepts and loopholes appear like clockwork in your inbox. My advice is to find one person you find interesting and has a good reputation and receive his emails. Unsubscribe from everyone else. Believe me, if something revolutionary appears, you will hear about it.

These emails often set off an autoresponder series which sends you emails every few days. There is a marketing saying that the sale is not made until the seventh offer. Autoresponders are one of the ten or so major developments in the actual business of selling something to somebody in the last ten years. They allow marketers to present their offers to their double opt-in list over and over again. Without a doubt, emails to a targeted list, sell. So much so that it becomes statistically useful to work out how much each name on your list is worth each month. That reliable!

Like memory, emails have exploded exponentially. Seemingly an allegory to the old saying that "work expands to fill the time available".

Just quickly, there have only been around a dozen or so revolutionary developments in internet selling in the last ten years. In no particular order:
1/ Autoresponders.
2/ Online auctions, especially eBay.
3/ Paypal.
4/ Pay Per Click advertising.
5/ The rise of social networking such as Facebook and Twitter and their siblings.
6/ Blogs.
7/ DIY websites and shopping carts.
8/ Live chat.
9/ Streaming audio and video.

There may be others, but , whatever.

To further research into the market activity of a niche. Go to Amazon. Choose "books' from the drop-down menu and type in your niche and search. Check the number of results. Greater than 150 is encouraging. There is considerable activity in this niche. Now choose "movies and TV" from the drop-down menu. Once again check the number of results. More than 25 is good. If the niche meets either of these criteria, then people are interested.

One further site that gives an excellent indication of the activity and actual buying within a niche is eBay. To be banal, people are buying and selling on ebay all the time! What better place to use to gauge activity and competition? The difference is that this time we are going to type in a far more generic niche to get the most related results. So if your niche is mp3 meditation downloads, start with meditation to get a feel of what the market is offering and, most importantly, buying.

In the left hand pane of the screen, scroll down from "refine search" and click on "All categories". This will show you how many books, dvds, movies, television and downloads relate to your niche. Now go to sales and type in "completed sales" and scan down the list of completed sales for products relating to your niche. You can swiftly gauge how many sales are being made, what is selling and for how much! This sort of information is priceless, and crucial, when you begin selling or promoting your products.

Spend some time playing with these tools and analyzing the results to further refine your decision on what you are creating or promoting. Taking action is essential for the internet marketer. You cannot follow a plan without taking action. Without action you are just reading a novel and imagining being able to earn money online.

You need a plan to achieve your purpose. You need to take action on that plan. Get a plan. Follow it. 

Kindness is more important than wisdom.

How Can Blogging Get People To Connect On A Personal Level And Why Is That A Good Thing?

How Can Blogging Get People To Connect On A Personal Level And Why Is That A Good Thing?

Blogging Can Help Business By Getting Your Customers Connected With You on a Personal Level

Blogging can be an incredibly personal thing. A blog entry, regardless of topic, is going to be written with a different voice than any other type of web page. Blogging can get people to connect more on a personal level for one simple reason: blogs are personal in nature. 
Blogging started out as a way for people to share their thoughts on the internet. Now, businesses use blogs as well and though they aren't sharing their feelings, they are able to present material in a more personal way. Businesses that use blogs can post numerous different things to their blog; all of which can be toned down compared to a press release, sales pitch or formal web page. 
For example, a business keeps a blog maintained. The CEO adds to it at least once a month to just let everyone that reads it how the company is doing. People read this and feel a level of trust with this company simply because they are open about the company's prospects going forward. 
Blogging allows a business to create content quickly and, through subscription services, disseminate that information quickly to those that are interested. A new product announcement can be blogged about and will make it directly to those that are already customers and have an interest in that type of product. An upcoming sale can be blogged about so everyone can plan to check the site the day of the sale. 

As part of a business model, customer retention should always have a high priority. Blogging is a powerful way to help keep customers. By creating that personal connection with the customer, the business has created a loyal customer. 
In times past, this was the corner stone of every face to face business. You would make friends with the owner of one store and continue going there, not even bothering to compare prices with the competition. 
The explosion of the web and the incredibly easy access to price comparisons has made customer loyalty an almost laughable concept for this modern age. Even so, if a business has few competitors, making that personal connection with the customer can yield not only a customer for life but also a customer that will tell their friends and bring in more business.
Finally, blogging and creating a personal connection with customers creates a customer base for the business that it can rely on more than the general web population. The strength of that personal relationship leads to years of sales to that customer with much less advertising money spent to get the customer to purchase.
