So you’ve made the choice to start an online business. Well the only thing that I can say is welcome to the jungle. And if you don’t have an effective strategy than the jungle is going to bring you down to your knnn, knne, knees, knees, as the legendary Axl Rose would say. Oh! I see, you’ve read all of the articles on the first page of Google and never got the chance to read mine. Yep! That’s the way it works around here. There are thousands of good articles, but only a few will rise to the top of the SERP engines. Since you’re new here, I figure I’ll give you a few quick tips on how to survive. Oh yes, survival is key, and in the world of Internet marketing, there are only a few victors. So you really need to make sure that the odds are ever in your favor.
The Internet is a jungle, partly because everyone and their momma are trying to sell something on it. Competition is fierce, and the people who are on top will force you to eat the crumps that fall to the bottom. Sure, everyone is quick to grab big keywords with matching domain names. But you’ll find that these things won’t aid to your success. Instead, you will “die” from natural causes such as: desperation, frustration, lack of resources, capital and funding. And if these things don’t kill you, Google’s everlasting algorhythm updates will. In the jungle, you get slapped around like a bitch. And by the time we are done with you, you are going to have known more positions than a ten-dollar street whore.
Oh, so you’re not going to bother with SEO? You are more of a social marketing guy.
But you are soon likely to find out that if you got the money honey, we got your disease. We got plenty of bad products that are sure to bring you down to your knne, knne, knees, knees. Oh yeah! We also have plenty of unethical marketers who will pick your pockets and watch you bleed. This is the Internet, there is a worthless, bullshit product being created by some poor overseas China man every day. If you don’t want to buy a product, there are plenty of services and web-based programs that will get you “hooked” on exorbitant monthly fees. These programs are laced with more shit that a bad batch of cocaine. They are loaded with spam and black hat practices that will not only get you banned from Google, but 30 to life.
So we need to always look at the bright side of our lives. After all, there are affiliate programs that you could sell. These programs garnish a commission anywhere between 50 to 75%. Yes, now we are talking. You can even make your own products and or services. You can promote these products and services on your own website. Yes, this sounds a lot better. Right? This is what you wanted to hear. However, there is still one problem, traffic. I just don’t mean any kind of traffic. You need traffic that converts. People could love you and your product, that doesn’t mean that they are going to whip out their wallets and purses and pay. Unfortunately, people prefer brands. And if you are the new kid on the block, I can guess that you have yet to establish one.
Of course, you can continue writing articles that will probably never be seen like this one. Or you can reach out to the big guys in your niche, and ask them to throw you a bigger scrap of food. “Shout outs” are hard to get, because the big guys will say that you can have whatever you want, but you better not take it from me. So if you truly want to get anything from them, then you are going to have to beg them by getting down on your knne, knne, knees, knees.
