Internet Marketing Success

The easiest way I know to attain Internet marketing success is to create goals that allow you to ‘autopilot’ your way to financial freedom. What do I mean? What I mean is that you crystallize your most powerful and desired goals and link them to your Internet business. Let the power of the goals drive you to success!

You see, success and money gravitate to those with a clear definition of what they want, and then set out and do it! Whenever you find yourself feeling low or making excuses, these goals are strong enough to keep you motivated and keep you going to reach success online.

The main reason why people fail and let excuses overcome them is because their goals are not powerful enough. They don’t have a big enough ‘reason why’ to get Internet success. If you are not strong on quitting your day job and making money online, then it’s not likely that you will do just that. You are likely to fail and quit easily because your ‘reason why’ is just not strong enough to overcome the excuses and shortcomings you might have.

That’s why you need to start setting some powerful goals for yourself now! Create a goal and lifestyle target that excites you. Do you want to buy a sports car? Write it down and place it near your computer. Same if you want to quit your day job, retire early or buy a new home. Write it down and let it ‘autopilot’ you to your success.

Achieving Financial Goals Using Internet Marketing

It is a good idea to use all sorts of marketing strategies when you are trying to promote your business. When running an online business, you must understand how to do internet marketing. Read on for some basic information on internet marketing and its uses.

An important element of website design is the site-wide link. This is a link that will appear on each page of a site. Add a link to your homepage, or another important area of your site, on every page of your website so that your visitors can find it easily. A menu of links works best for including site-wide links on a website in an orderly way. Keep your menu link descriptions concise and well-organized.

One very important part of your website is the HTML code. Meta tags are a good way to show search engines what your website is about. They will not be apparent to readers, but they will stand out to spiders sent by search engines. Meta tags are useful tools. They can assist you in reaching the right person with the right keywords. Be wary of over-using meta tags, since this can have a detrimental effect. You should include meta tags that are exclusive to every page of your site; this will reach your visitors and guide the search engine.

There are a number of uses for HTML tags. The H tag is used to mark important text and is a very important tag. This tag allows the characters to show up as bold which will make them stand out from the rest of your text. Use these tags to mark titles and important paragraphs. In this way, your page will be more appealing to those reading it. It also lets the web crawlers readily identify your most important content. Ensure that keywords are placed in the titles.

Variety is key when employing the Internet to market. While sticking with what works for you is a great ideal, there are always new ideas worth exploring. You may be able to take advantage of learning about the trends that go viral on the web, and turn those ideas into something that will increase your sales. There is no guaranteed way of figuring out what will be the next big thing on the internet, but high-quality content that entertains people is always a winner. To get an idea on what is popular, make sure you take a look at websites like YouTube and Twitter.

This article has covered only a small portion of the many Internet marketing campaigns that exist. Try these ideas, and others which might be more original. This will help you to develop an idea that is unique to you.

ow to Get More Referrals Without Asking

Get Referrals without Asking
Some years ago, I had the great fortune of generating more than $500,000 with a single sale. It took me about seven months to close the deal, after other financial advisors had been trying to win this particular client over for more than 10 years. I believe the reason I got the business was a simple one: The client was referred to me.

While many financial advisors say they understand the value of referrals, most aren’t doing enough to get the consistent supply of quality leads from their clients, prospects, and centers of influence that they should be getting.

So I decided to pick the brain of one of the best referral experts in the world, Bill Cates, CSP™, of Referral Coach International. Bill’s books, Get More Referrals Now! and Don’t Keep Me a Secret!, have established him as the financial services industry’s foremost expert on building a thriving referral-based business. As a presenter at this year’s Financial Advisor’s Summit, he offers some great insights on this important topic. Here are just a few of the financial advisor marketing strategies he shares to help you get referrals without asking:

Financial Advisor Marketing Strategy #1: Become More Referable
If you want to get referrals without asking for them, you have to become more referable. Bill boils this down to three main points, two of which are: 1) Have a great process that delivers tremendous value from the very start of the new relationship; 2) Have a client-service promise that insures you continue to provide value throughout the lifetime of the relationship.

Financial Advisor Marketing Strategy #2: Be More Proactive
Getting referrals without asking for them doesn’t mean you aren’t proactive in your quest for referrals. It simply means you don’t ask directly for referrals. Many financial advisors just can’t get past their fear or mistaken assumptions with regard to asking for referrals. So, just short of asking for referrals is “Promoting Referrals.” One of the best ways Bill teaches to promote referrals with clients is the line, “Don’t Keep Me a Secret.” Whenever a client expresses recognition of your value, you can say, “I’m glad you see the value of the work that I do. Please don’t keep me a secret.” Bill teaches many other easy, low-key ways to promote referrals but this is my favorite.

Financial Advisor Marketing Strategy #3: Do it Like a Master
Bill shared that “Amateurs practice to get it right, masters practice until they can’t get it wrong.” This insight has already had a dramatic impact in all aspects of my life, personally and professionally. The point is simple: How you show up for things makes a big difference in your results. Abraham Lincoln said it this way: “Whatever you are, be a good one.” If you start showing up as a master advisor instead of settling for anything less, you’ll create a business that’s worthy of your skills.

This summer, while traveling in Spain, we watched Mexico play South Africa in the World Cup on TV. It was immediately clear to me that the South African goalkeeper was a master. While the Mexican team was favored and performed better overall, the game ended in a draw because of the South African goalkeeper’s mastery of the game. His commitment to becoming a master made the difference for his team and can for yours too, if you commit and take action to becoming a master. First, learn from a current master – Bill Cates. Then you’ll be on your way to mastering your financial advisory business while getting more referrals- guaranteed!
