Heck, online marketing is popular because it allows the little guy to compete with the large corporations without needing tons of cash.

Here’s how you market your website when you have no money.

Step 1: Go to Quora and search for all of the questions that people have within your space and answer them. When it makes sense, link back out to your website. This is so effective that my Quora profile gets hundreds of thousands of views each month.

Step 2: Create content in different formats (text, video, audio) and promote them on the social web (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Quora). You can post the same content on multiple social sites as Google DOES NOT penalize for duplicate content.

When using this tactic make sure you only put part of your content on social media and make the readers click over back to your site to read the rest.

Step 3: Google for forums within your space and respond to questions. Within your forum response add a signature that lists your website. The better response you give the more traffic you will get.

That’s how you market your website when you can’t spend any money on marketing. 🙂

____________________________________________

Even if you work at a company, these skills will help you.

So let’s get right into it.

The first skill you need is data science.

You don’t have to be a crazy data scientist, but you need to learn how to look at Google Analytics.

There are so many videos out there that teach you how to read a report, because Google Analytics isn’t just about, “Hey, how many visitors am I getting?”

It’s more about “How many visitors am I getting,”

If you don’t know to look at the data, you won’t know where to focus your energy to maximize your results.

The second skill to learn is content strategy.

Writing content doesn’t guarantee you any traffic anymore.

There are over a billion blogs on the web.

There are roughly seven billion people, so that means roughly one blog for every seven people.

That’s too much content.

So, if you want to do well, you need a strategy.

Without a strategy, there’s no guarantee that people are going to read your content.

The third tip you need is you need to learn how to leverage video.

Video is up-and-coming as one of the most popular channels out there.

I’m talking about filming videos like this one and releasing it, evergreen content, on YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, you need to do a ton of video stuff because you’ll find it’ll build a much more engaging community than almost any other channel out there.

The fourth skill you need to learn is storytelling.

I don’t know why, but I’m seeing less and fewer people use storytelling, but storytelling is still as effective as it used to be two, three, five, ten years ago.

You need to integrate stories into your marketing.

When you do that, you’ll find that more people relate to you.

They’ll identify with the characters in your story, and you’ll notice that your conversion rate goes up.

The fifth skill that you need to learn is email marketing.

And I’m not talking about just basic email marketing, like sending out emails every time you release a blog post, but more complicated emails.

I’m talking more so marketing automation.

Well, if someone goes through your funnel, they don’t open up one email, what should they do next?

If they open up that email, what should they get?

You don’t want to send everyone the same emails.

The sixth skill is funnels.

There are tools like ClickFunnels out there that can help you build a funnel faster and easier, and funnels are really important because ad costs keep rising.

You need to learn how to do upsells and downsells.

You may not be thinking “Oh, that’s not related “to marketing, why do I need to learn that?”

Well, if you can’t figure out upsells and downsells, eventually, you’re not going to be able to afford your paid ads.

That’ll help improve your margin so you can keep selling.

The seventh skill that you need to learn is podcasting.

Podcasting hasn’t taken off in the U.S. as much as it has in Asia, like places like China.

But podcasting is growing at a very rapid pace, and people are listening to podcasts on the go.

Plus, the people who listen to podcasts are super engaged, and they typically have a higher income percentage-wise, from a medium-household-income perspective, than other marketing channels out there.

And that’s why you need to get into podcasting now.

It’ll be much more competitive in three, four years.

Then it’s going to be hard.

And when you do podcasting, don’t expect to get results right away.

It’ll take years before you see the fruit from your labor.

4 Marketing Strategy Principles – My Template for Marketing Anything

In marketing, if you break the fundamentals, no matter how much effort you put in, you will not succeed. Today, I’m going to break down my four marketing strategy principles, and how you can market anything.

RESOURCES & LINKS:
____________________________________________
How to Create an Online Marketing Plan that Will Grow (Nearly) Any Business [article]: https://neilpatel.com/blog/how-to-create-an-online-marketing-plan-that-will-grow-nearly-any-business/

20 Uncommon Marketing Strategies That’ll Kickstart Your Startup [article]: https://neilpatel.com/blog/startup-marketing-strategies/
____________________________________________

The first principle is you need to have clear goals for your marketing.

What is your goal? Is it more visitors? Is it brand awareness? Is it more sales?

If you don’t what you’re optimizing for, you won’t know what you need to do in marketing.

For example, it’s brand awareness it’s all about eyeballs and getting traffic. It’s about sales. It could be about creating a conversion funnel, a lead flow, adding up sales, down sells.

If it’s about profitability, it could be about cutting costs on your marketing and figuring out how you can get less traffic, spend less money, but make sure you’re in an optimal position, where you’re not paying too much for marketing and your profitability goes up.

The second principle that you need to follow is you need to understand your target customer.

If you don’t know your target customer, no matter what you do, you won’t do well. Let me share a story from a company called Diamond Foundry. What Diamond Foundry does is, they sell diamonds. And these are man-made diamonds. They still meet all the same requirements that a diamond that you would find in the Earth, and a human eye can’t tell the difference and even if a diamond specialist looked under a scope, they won’t see any difference.

But here is the difference. Diamond Foundry can produce that diamond for pennies on the dollar versus having people go mine for them and find them in the field.

So Diamond Foundry decided that they wanted to sell these diamonds at a truly affordable price to help people out. Can you guess what happened to their revenue sales?

It tanked. Do you know why?

No one wanted affordable diamonds. They felt that if something was affordable, it wasn’t going to be good.

Even though that’s not true, that’s what their customers believed.

Their business started growing and it grew really fast and things started to work out.

Can you guess what change they made? They increased their prices.

They made more sales by charging more money for their product.

In other words, if you don’t know your customers.

What makes them tick. What makes them buy and why. You won’t grow your sales, your traffic or accomplish any of your goals.

And you won’t find this out by just looking at a Google Analytics Screenshot. You got to talk to your customers. Get to know them. Meet them in person. Drink coffee with them. Survey using tools like SurveyMonkey.

Whatever it may be, by talking with them you’ll get more insights so you can keep adjusting them and do better over time.

The third principle that you need to follow is you need to have something that differentiates you.

If you don’t have anything differentiating you from the competition, they’re just going to look at price, quality, reviews. It’s not going to get people to go to you.

The moment you differentiate yourself, you can do so much better. A good example of this is Apple’s expensive, but the reason I pay for a MacBook or an iPhone is that all the devices work so well together and they do the main things, that I want, really well in a simplistic way.

So the key is not just to be another me-too player and have nothing that differentiates you.

You need to figure out how you can make yourself stand out.

And you may not know this right away. You may have to interview people. Talk with your potential customers. You have to figure out what your competitors aren’t doing that you could be doing.

All these things will help you figure out how to differentiate yourself.

The last principle. I know they say marketing’s moving to an omnichannel approach.

I even say that. It’s true. But you need to focus your efforts at one channel at a time. Handle one channel. Do really well at it and then expand into two channels.

Once you do well in two channels, then go for three, then four and then five. But if you can’t get one channel right, what makes you think that you can do all seven or 10 or 20 at once?

The Only Rule In Marketing You Have To Follow (Ignore This And Your Marketing Won’t Work)

The Only Rule In Marketing You Have To Follow (Ignore This And Your Marketing Won’t Work) // Have you heard the saying, that rules are meant to be broken? Well, there’s one rule in marketing that won’t change, and it’ll continue to work. And if you break it, you won’t do well.

RESOURCES & LINKS:
____________________________________________
How Digital Marketing Will Change in 2019 (video): https://youtu.be/b-gwbVJqi9Y

DON’T Use Paid Ads My #1 Organic Marketing Strategy (video): https://youtu.be/fGOv5oU5vww
____________________________________________

Well, the rule is, the rule of seven.

It’s the rule that you cannot break.

If you think about marketing, it’s changed over time.

You used to be able to build a business from just one channel.

If you look at Facebook, they grew by sending you e-mails, being like, your friend invited you to Facebook.

If you look at Dropbox, they were all over social media.

Share this on Twitter to get more free space.

If you look at a lot of other companies, they grew through one channel, like let’s just say Google AdWords or SEO.

But you can no longer grow through one company.

The other thing that you’ll find is, even if you find a few channels that are working out, you have so many competitors these days, that just hitting people once, won’t cause enough conversions.

From all the data that we’ve looked up at content marketing, social media marketing, even AdWords.

People need to see your brand roughly seven times, technically I’m holding up eight fingers, but seven times before they end up converting into a customer. So once they see you seven times, interact with your brand, they’re much more likely to convert.

Now, let’s break down how you can leverage the rule of seven.

One, be on the social wagon.

When you’re on the social wagon people have comments, questions, you can be there to answer and interact with them.
That’s a great way.

Not just posting content on these social sites, but also interacting, taking the time to respond to comments, helping them out, responding to their messages.

That’s the first thing you need to do.

The second thing you need to do is leverage SEL.

By being visible on the search engines, more people are going to see you.

They’re going to see your company.

They’re going to see your brand.

You’re going to do better.

And you can do things like content marketing.

You can do things like social media marketing, link building, interlinking.

They all help, but SEO is very valuable.

Google’s the most popular site in the world.

If you’re not there, you’re not going to get as many eyeballs.

The third thing I want you to do is leverage paid ads.

Not just on Google, but also Facebook, Taboola, Outbrain, banner ads, media buys. Any form of ads.

You can go over to Facebook and click on Info and Ads.

So you’re going on Facebook to any of your competitor’s fan page, click on Info and Ads, and you can see the ads that are running.

This will give you a head start.

You can also use tools like Ubersuggest to see where your competitors are getting traffic from.

This will help you also get a head start.

The fourth thing I want you to do is update your content.

You already know content marketing’s effective.

You’re writing content, but what very few people are doing is updating their content.

You’ll find that if you just write content and stop writing it, eventually your rankings will keep dwindling down and down. Why?

If you don’t keep your content up-to-date, you won’t continue to rank, and people won’t keep seeing you.

The last thing I want you to do is keep sharing your content.

You know you’re already on these social sites.

People are already seeing your stuff when you post, but not everyone does. The algorithms are so restrictive, it’s very rare that even ten, twenty percent of your audience is going to see whatever you post.

So might as well share that same piece of content three, four, five times over the course of a year.

It’ll help you get more juice from that same piece of content. In essence, you’re continually sharing, you’re continually repurposing it.

That’ll help you get more eyeballs, more people back.

And as a bonus tip, use tools like Hello Bar and Subscribers to keep getting people back to your site because once they land there, through push notifications and e-mails, you can get people to come back to your site.

Which will cause you, in the long run, to get people in touch with your site seven times, in touch with your brand seven times, to engage with your brand seven times, to engage with you seven times, and hopefully, buy your product or service.

How to Start A Digital Marketing Agency As a Beginner in 2019 (Your FIRST $10k+/month)

How to Start A Digital Marketing Agency As a Beginner in 2019 (Your FIRST $10k+/month) // You see people like me doing consulting services and making money from it. Would you like to learn how you can do the same thing?

____________________________________________
How to Start Your Own SEO Agency | Find Quality Leads For Your Digital Marketing Agency (video): https://youtu.be/LmsPc_fsVxI

Crunchbase: https://www.crunchbase.com/
____________________________________________

The first thing you need to do is go and find companies.

Everyone thinks oh I need to buy this course, or this service that teaches me how to create an agency.

Yo don’t need to do any of that.

I’ll break it down in the most simplistic fashion:

You go online and find companies that you can help.

That’s the first step.

And it’s as simple as going to site like Crunchbase and looking for all the venture-funded companies.

If someone raised a lot of money, what does that mean?

They got to spend it.

And they got to spend it on people like you who can help them grow their traffic and sales.

Now you may be like, hmmm, I don’t have a lot of experience.

I don’t have a lot of case studies.

I’m not going to be able to get a lot of these customers.

I’ll teach you how to do that as well.

Step two.

Now that you found a list of companies that you can potentially help, I want you to go through their website and really look at it and be like, what can you do to help em?

Don’t just say oh I can help em with their SEO, I can help them with their paid ads.

I want you to really break down everything that they’re doing wrong and how to fix it, like line item by line item.

The more detailed you are, the better off you’re going to be.

If you don’t get detail, this isn’t going to work.

Step three, Eliminate all of the companies on that list that you can’t provide enough feedback for.

If you can’t provide pages and pages of feedback, you’re not going to do well.

You need to break all of that down, so then that way, people can get all of that insight.

When they get that insight, they’re much more likely to hire you.

They want the meat, they want the guts.

The next step, I want you to email the CEO, the founder of that company, the head of marketing, your sheet breaking down everything that they’re doing wrong.

And at the end, even tell em, sorry to be blunt, I just want to help you grow.

If you need help implementing any of this, let me know.

I don’t mind working something out and helping you guys out.

If you send out five of those emails, you’ll get one to two customers like clockwork.

If you’re not, that means you’re not sending it out to the right people, in which these people aren’t raising millions of dollars.

If they haven’t raised at least one to two million dollars, you’re wasting your time emailing them.

Also on that note, when you’re emailing them, you need to keep following up as well.

In many cases, I’ll email them, I’ll text them, I’ll call em.

I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that they read and see that document.

And you’ll find that some people will be offended, some people will like you, and some people will hire you.

But it really is one to two out of five will hire you as long as you’re sending out really thorough emails.

The email doesn’t have to be pretty, doesn’t have to have all these crazy cool graphics.

It can just be basic emails breaking down what they’re doing wrong, how to fix it.

And when you lay it out step by step, where they can do it without even hiring you, they’re more likely to hire you because they’re like, oh, you’ll send me everything.

I trust him.

I can see his game plan.

Why not just hire him?

I’m strapped for time.

Because the moment someone raises venture capital, they got to move fast.

And that’s your advantage.

That’s how you create a digital marketing agency and get your first few clients and get over $10,000 a month in income.

Advertising Defined, What’s It Great for And How An Online Campaign Can Actually Conserve You Big Bucks

A variety of definitions of marketing exist however the best I have actually discovered yet to cover what marketing is can be summed up in the following 2 declarations:

advertisement – ver – tis – ing n.: The activity of bring in public attention to an item or organisation, as by paid announcements in the print, broadcast, or electronic media.

Also specified as “the non individual interaction of information through different media, paid for by the marketer and is typically persuading in nature about the requirement to purchase services and products” – the marketers naturally.

Marketing your business’s services and products to your targeted audience is important to preserve a long-term and prosperous relationship. If you’re not continuously winning your clients over than the competition will.

So, What Does An Advertising Agency Do?

If your company can afford it an advertising agency will truly help you allocate. Ad agency spend all day simply doing marketing for various organisations. They will currently understand the cost/thousand numbers of the numerous media available in your location, they’ll also have an excellent idea of what will or will not work well for your type of service. This will come at a cost but will absolutely be the short track to your companies success, unless your time is unworthy much to you, and because case proceed and waste it if you ‘d like. (:–) An effective marketing campaign will highly depend upon how the advertising agency has actually designed your ads; for that reason I have actually offered the following assistance.

Tips For Choosing An Advertising Agency 1) The popularity and credibility of the advertising agency 2) The charges/ work provision of the advertising agency 3) The working effectiveness of the advertising agency

The durability and overall success of your business can be acquired by the help of a great advertising agency conserving you precious time and huge amounts of cash need to you not know what your doing.

Through text ad programs like Google Adwords for instance you can have a project up and running within minutes to evaluate how well numerous words will be clicked. You can than test this more to guarantee the clients that are going to your site are the type of consumers you desire and not just “tire kickers” so to speak.

Once your online ad campaign is able to draw the ideal clientele you’ll be in a much better position to introduce an offline, more pricey standard style marketing campaign.

An online advertising agency can assist you plan, design and execute web advertising of your products and services to take the confusion out of the web if online advertising is brand-new to you.

Many marketing careers exist and have for years.

Do Yourself a Favor: STOP Trying to Rank #1 For Keywords on Google (SEO Strategy 2019)

Do yourself a favor: STOP Trying to Rank #1 For Keywords on Google // What if I told you that ranking number one on Google won’t necessarily make you more money? Today I’m going to share with you why you should stop wasting your time trying to rank number one on Google.

RESOURCES & LINKS:
____________________________________________
Ranking #1 With a New Website on Google in 2019 | Is it Even Possible? (video): https://youtu.be/91W0sa9Qfg8

SurveyMonkey: https://surveymonkey.com/
____________________________________________

Can you guess how many keywords I try to rank number one for? Zero.

I don’t even track my own rankings.

Now let me break down why you should try to avoid trying to rank number one on Google for a lot of terms.

First thing, one, rank tracking is really inaccurate. So when you think you rank number one, you may not rank number one. Every region has different results because of localized search. Every person, every state, every country is looking at different results based on how they search.

Google is trying to adjust the results to be personalized to each individual.

So it’s not about trying to rank number one, it’s about trying to provide The best user experience so more people want to see results from your site versus someone else’s site.

The second thing is ranking number one, doesn’t mean necessarily mean that you’re going to get most of the traffic.

Did you know according to Ahrefs, only 49% of the time, ranking number one gets you the most traffic? That means 51% of the time, all the other spots get the rest of the traffic.

It’s not about being number one, it’s about getting most of the traffic.

The third thing is, you don’t have to rank number one to get the most traffic.

For example, there are certain keywords that I rank, let’s say, Number 3 or number 4 for, like SEO tips, but yeah, I get more traffic than the number 1 listing because I take up the rich snippet.

If you take up rich snippets, you can also rank higher. So when people are googling for a term, don’t just think about, “oh I want to rank high, I need to build more links” “I need to do more internal linking”.

Make sure your content Addresses that term. And here’s what I mean by that.

If someone’s typing keywords like SEO tips, they’re looking for SEO tips. So your article may break down seven tips that can help them out and when you clearly define these tips, you’ll notice that you have a higher chance of being pulled in as a rich snippet and that’ll help you get more traffic than if you weren’t there.

The fourth thing is not all keywords have intent.

For example, I rank on Google for terms like online marketing, internet marketing, SEO. Those terms may seem amazing and they are competitive but guess how much revenue they drive?

Very little. Why? Because anyone who searches for those keywords is looking for basic advice. There’s no intent there. People who search for SEO are looking for, “Hey, what is SEO?” “How does it work?” “How do Google rankings work?”

Those warm people that aren’t going to pay me for my ad agency, but on the flip side, if I rank for ‘SEO agency’, I’ll generate way more revenue.

So in other words, you need to look for keywords that are intent based.

And last but not least, rankings won’t guarantee your success.

Here’s what I mean. If you do all the right things to get to the top, but yet no one wants to go visit your page, you’re not going to stay at the top.

A good example of this is Ahrefs was trying for a very long time to rank for backlink checker.

They created content, internal links, they did everything that’s possible to rank at the top, but no matter what they did, they weren’t ranking.

It wasn’t that their SEO was bad, it was that users didn’t care to visit their page. And the reason being is they were looking for a free backlink checker while their tool costs money.

Once Ahrefs figured out that, “hey, we’re not doing what’s best for the user” and they gave the skimmed down version of their tool for free and they only provide, let’s say, 100 links, I don’t know what’s the exact number is but it’s somewhere around there.

What they found is, their rankings shot up to the top of page 1. Why? Because they gave users what they wanted.

So even if you do all the right things to rank at the top, but you ignore the user, you’re not going to rank, you’re not going to convert them.

You need to understand what they want. And using tools like SurveyMonkey will help you get that information.

How to Do SEO for a “Tiny” Website That Doesn’t Have Any Visitors or Money (article): https://neilpatel.com/blog/how-to-do-seo-for-a-tiny-website-that-doesnt-have-any-visitors/

If you have a brand-new website or even a website that’s old and you’re getting little to no organic traffic, you can still generate a lot of traffic from Google and rank organically.

But the ways you need to do it is totally different than what people are thinking. Now let me give you an example.

There’s this company called Ahrefs. Ahrefs provides an SEO tool. They rank on page one of Google and at the top for backlink checker. But before they ranked at the top, they were doing everything.

They were building links to that page, they were guiding internal links, and they couldn’t get to the top no matter what they tried. And can you guess why they couldn’t get to the top?

Well, it’s because everyone who searches for that term is looking a free tool that provides backlinks right away. Ahrefs is a paid tool. The moment they figured this out, they released a free version of their tool that provides information on a hundred backlinks.

Just a hundred, they limited it so people still upgrade to their paid tool, and what ended up happening is within a few weeks to even less than a month, they shot up to number one.

Do you see what happened there? They figured out what the user wanted and they provided it. It wasn’t just about building links, it wasn’t just about optimizing title tags, putting in the right keywords.

It’s providing the best experience for our users, and that’s a mistake that most people make.

In 2019 and even beyond, SEO is not just about building links, building the right type of content, internal linking.

It’s about thinking about the user and putting them first.

If you don’t put the user first and you don’t give them what they want no matter how much SEO you do.

Just like Ahrefs showed, you won’t rank. If you put the user first, and even if you don’t have all the other factors, like your backlink count isn’t right, your internal links aren’t perfect, you can still rank high.

Because the way Google looks at rankings these days is even if you do all the fundamentals right, but if people keep going to your site and then click the Back button right away, they’re bouncing off, they’re going back to Google quick and the next result, that’s telling Google that, hey, people don’t like your website.

Google doesn’t care how much SEO stuff you’re doing at that point. They’re just like, wait, people aren’t liking your website, so they’re not going to continually rank you.

So if you want to rank in 2919, don’t just think about SEO from an on-page or off-page perspective. Think about SEO from a user’s perspective.

What do your ideal customers want? If you don’t know them, head over to tools like surveymonkey.com and you can survey users. You can survey your own users. Ask them things like, what else would you like to see on this page? How can we delight you? How can we make our website better, our product, our service? By figuring out what people want and then giving it to them, you’re much more likely to crank and climb in the rankings.

It’s not just about doing the fundamentals that everyone is talking about.
