How do I find an Internet Marketing Consultant?

When you own your own business you get up everyday and think about the things you have to do. If you love what you do you do it with a smile. You do it with excitement. If not you find it hard to get started and at some point you find a million reasons why you are not making it and then you quit. Quitting is not a bad thing if you are not having fun with your company. Running a buiness is way too hard to do if you don’t enjoy what you do.

I find that there are parts of my business that are hard and that I don’t like doing, but other parts that I love and just want to do all of the time. But both parts work very well together. So I just keep on going.

It is the same with your web site. You need to find the parts that you do like and make that a priority and then get help from others that love the parts you don’t. It is important that your web site serve the purpose for which it was intended. It needs to serve the customers that you have. Maybe find some new ones. By turning your excitement for your product or service into a sale.

If you are not a designer then don’t design your web site. You need to understand how it works, who it is talking to, and what you want it to do.( understand what a conversion is) But you don’t need to design or build a web site. Two big reasons. One is will not look like you want it to look without many more hours than you can afford to spend learning and doing something you are only going to do a few times in your life. It will not have the functionally that it should. Because you just don’t know what questions to ask.

Just like a lawyer, doctor, accountant a good Internet Marketing consultant can help you find the right designer and steer you clear of the holes. Find someone that has a clear view of the entire process not just design. You need to know how your site falls into the eco-system called the Internet. You need to know who your clients are and how to talk to them to get a result. A good Internet Marketing Consultant has a background in the Internet, Marketing, and Design. They might not have been all of these in a past life but they know how to get a result.

From a consultants point of view I like to take on clients that are motivated and are good people with right intentions. Everything else we can create, a marketing plan, design of a web site, offers to get people to sign up for our newsletter, a good email campaign, learning how to read stats and put them to use.

These are all things that need to be done. If you are missing any of these then you are missing a piece of the pie. find out why find out what you don’t know. Then you will get a lot value from your consultants time.

Good Luck. Many happy convertions.

Finding a few hours on the weekend to create posts for you web site can be a great way to deal with a busy week.
Wordpress allow you to schedule you posts to go up all week.
Sit down make a cup of tea think about the last week of you work. What questions did people ask, what did you learn new. Those are the kinds of things that will feed others in their quest for knowledge.
Help the world grow. Give back and you will receive.
Have a great day.

Overcome the storms

Every day I get up and say that I am going to start marketing my business/web site. Everyday life happens. It seems like there is always something that stops me.
Today I looked at the sun trying to get through the clouds. The sun that warms our planet. The Internet is a lot like that solar system we are in. It is hard for us to wrap our heads around how big and powerful it is. The Internet is made up of tens of billions of pages. How am I going ever be seen.
You don't have to over come all of them just the one that , like the cloud blocking us from our visitors. It might be that you have a personal business like yoga or you sell propane to your local area. You just need to be seen by them . And you can do this by creating information/ content that will help those people, the real people in your area to live a better life.
Your clients will read it on Facebook or your web site tell their friends and that will help your business grow.

Remember it is the fund drive for WBCR this week. So listen to Computer Therapy today at 10 am and give to the station. Help us keep it going.
Have a peaceful day.

My Internet presence

Everyday is the right day to begin your web marketing. Just start talking about your work. Describe what you did yesterday. Talk about what you want to do tomorrow. It does not have to be long it just has to be there.

Then as you go learn how to do keyword research to find the best words to use, post it to Facebook, twitter, and any other network you be long to.

In the beginning it is more important that you do it than it is perfect. You can do this!

Don’t let the wind of competition blow out your candle.
