Online Marketing & Succeeding


Let Me Tell You The Truth About Online Marketing & Succeeding

I bet you have heard many times the statistics that 97% of people fail while only 3% of people actually succeed and earn a living in this industry? I’m sure that you’ve heard this over and over again, but you are still wondering how to become part of the 3%.

There is a disturbing known fact about the 97% of marketers and that is that they have no clue who they’re actually marketing to. Sound familiar?  They may take time to write articles, shoot videos and write blog posts, but 9.9 times out of 10, if you were to ask them who their target market is, they probably woundln’t be able to answer the question because they simply don’t know!

You need to know your audience, know what their challenges are and how to address them.  It is critical if you truly plan on succeeding.

It will make your writing efforts so much easier and allow you to immediately connect your offer with the needs that your market has.

Before you do any more marketing, take into consideration the following questions:

Who is my target market



What are they struggling with?

What do they want?

How can I give it to them?

By using only one method to market your business it’s like posting an ad in a newspaper, doing nothing else, and sitting back for months on end hoping that your phone will ring.

You HAVE TO get out there and START using diverse marketing methods for your business.  You need to incorporate things like Article Marketing, Video Marketing, Writing Squidoo Lenses, Hubpages, Forum Marketing and of course Social Media Marketing.

Just pick 2 or 3 to start out with as it could get a bit overwhelming using all of the above at once.  At the same time create a consistent plan of action on how you will implement them on a weekly basis.  As you master each method start adding one more method until you have mastered them all.  One step at a time !!  This way you will gain extra exposure from a new audience.


Outsourcing can be so important to your business and can’t emphasise this enough !   There is so much to maintain in the internet marketing world and you need to be careful not to burn yourself out …..  So getting help with time consuming tasks is extremely helpful for your business as doing it alone can be very challenging ….

The 3% of those people have mastered the art of handing things over to people who are more skilled and trained than they are. The key is in discovering what it is that you do best, and what makes you money and focus solely on those things while handing over the rest.

It can be fairly inexpensive to outsource.  Sometimes even averaging around $2 per hour (depending on expertise and location of your contractor). Either way, it’s more affordable than most people realize and should be factored into your monthly expenses as a “necessary expense”.

Myself, if I am pushed for time I use Private Label Rights, who have writers to create content for you while you still have the freedom to put your name on it and take all the credit.

The prices are inexpensive to start out with, you have no obligation and it’s a great way to begin to free up your time to focus on more critical areas that really need your attention.

As you can see, becoming a part of the 3% isn’t too far out of reach. It just means you making a few small changes and tweaks to what you’ve been doing, and you’ll discover that you’re well on your way to dominating your niche, succeeding in your efforts while finally making a decent income doing it.

How to Find Someone’s Need

How to Find Someone’s Need and Their WHY

When you are looking to find a new recruit, the best way to connect with someone is to find their “need”. Think for a moment what happens if you don’t work on finding someone’s need.

You may start talking to someone who you think would be GREAT in your business. They seem smart, highly motivated…and you want to tell them more about your company. You start telling them how GREAT it is to be able to earn extra money so they can spend more time with their kids and go on some WONDERFUL family vacations!! And you’re super duper confident that this opportunity can do that for them!!!

However……your “prospect” seems to be giving you a blank stare. You stop to ask if that sounds like something that would be great for them. And they tell you that they are single. And they don’t like to travel. As you’ve been talking, you have been building a block in their mind that this company and this opportunity are not for them.

It still could be, IF you are able to find what THEIR need was, and talk to them in their language. Show how your company can fit that need that is so important to THEM. You see, not everyone has the same need. It would be great if everyone wore their need on their sleeve and it was visibly plain as day…but it’s not. You have to do a little digging. More importantly, you have to do a LOT of listening.

Basically, most people’s “need” is based on one of four areas:

F – Family – They want to spend more quality time with their family. Maybe a woman wants to be an at home mom instead of working outside of the home. Maybe a man wants to make enough to allow his wife to be able to do that.

O- Occupation – They want an occupation that is fulfilling. Maybe they want to be in a different line of work. Maybe they want a less dangerous job. Maybe they want something that gives back to people. 

R – Recreation – Recreation often involves a different lifestyle. They want a vacation, a motor home or snowmobiles. Maybe it’s just the ability to travel when and where they want. 

M- Money – They want money to be able to do the things that they can’t do now.

So how do you find out what their “hot buttons” are? Ask some very simple questions or make some simple statements…and see what their answers are.

“You must love your job!”

“You must go on some great vacations!”

“I bet you make GREAT money at your job!”

“Do you have any fun plans for vacations this summer?”

“What brought you to your current job?”

Make sure to phrase your statements in a positive way. People will be more honest with you this way. Now pay CLOSE attention to what they say. If their answers are negative (as in “are you kidding, I HATE MY JOB!”) ask another question…”So if you could do one thing differently, what would it be?”

And THERE will be your magic answer!! That will be the need…whether it’s “spend more time with my kids” “have a great vacation” “make more money”. THAT is what you zero in on as you work on how your business can meet their needs.

Now you can talk to them in their language. Your opportunity talk can focus on the family, occupation, recreation or money needs that your company can meet. Laser focus on the need that they sound most passionate about. When you work on finding someone’s need, and show them how you and your company can meet it, your prospect will be MUCH more likely to listen!
