There are hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of pages out there about advertising. It is what drives business success whether you have a traditional business or work from home. That is why we did not want to waste your time going over the same old information. We wanted to provide information that you could use immediately. So, if you read only one article about advertising read this one.
Most People Don’t Understand Online Advertising
People that are new to building a business don’t know much about advertising. The majority of advertising that they are aware of is banner ads, text ads, TV, radio, and print ads. That is because these are the advertising methods that people notice.
They don’t realize that the really effective advertising methods don’t look like ads. We are so inundated with these traditional advertising methods that they have lost their effectiveness. This decline is simply because they are overused. Double click reported, “Click-through rates are .1 percent and The 468 x 60 banner has a .04 percent click rate.”
You Need a Mentor
Another problem is new marketers either don’t have the time or know where to go for quality information. They simply need a mentor to help them through the learning curve. If you can find a personal mentor then that is the holy grail. Ok, I am not going to be able to tell you how to find that.
But, I can show you how to find the next best thing. There are many highly successful marketers on the internet that are already teaching people their success system. Why would they do this? They do this because it raises their own authority level. The more people that succeed using their methods then the more attention they get. I started by following such a person. Pat Flynn earns slightly over $100,000 a month and he has built a site that lets you know how he did it.
This is arguably the most important thing I can tell you. Not everything you try is going to succeed. Keep track of the things that work and the ones that don’t. When something works but doesn’t reach your goals then don’t give up on it. Obviously, you are on the right road. Just try different ways of tweeking it. The importance is to make sure and track each different tweek. That way you can focus in on the things that work.
I am not saying that this article teaches you everything about advertising. That would take volumes. But, I have shared with you the three major things that allowed me to achieve success. First, advertising changes with time and most people don’t change their methods with it. The easiest, fastest, and most effective way to achieve success is to learn from the successful. Lastly, you are not going to find extreme success right away. You just need to keep trying. When you keep trying, you will find success. That is why this if you read only one article about advertising read this one.
