With every new Google update or change, I hear people screaming that they are sick and tired of depending strictly on Google for their traffic. Frankly, it’s a dangerous practice because your sole source of traffic can be taken away as quick as a hiccup.
Ready to start diversifying where your traffic comes from, but aren’t sure how? This video will get you headed in the right direction.
Steps to Building a Self-Contained Marketing System
1. Build Your List – Don’t ever put all your eggs into one basket. You always need elements of your marketing plan that YOU control and that cannot be taken away from you. Building your own in-house list is the first step.
2. Email Marketing – Once you get people on your list that want to hear from you regularly, develop a series of email messages that offer them the information, product announcements, sales/specials and more that they need to keep coming back.
3. Social Media – Get people talking and sharing your stuff! When people tell their friends what they like, those friends take them seriously. You want that kind of persuasion on your side.
4. Blogging – You don’t have to be able to write to have a blog. There are all sorts of content types you can use. Pictures, simple videos, reports, podcasts, etc. Stop putting it off and start a blog today.
