You may be surprised but the internet is still booming! Online marketing is catching on more and more as a part time job or a full time job. Every day new companies and small business find some way to come online and start selling their products.

The biggest challenge you face is trying to be all things at once. You need to simplify and prioritize what you are offering. By getting down to the nitty gritty of a marketing channel you provide overwhelming value to your customers that will keep coming back for more. Right now there are many marketing channels ad advertiser can choice to promote their products on SEO, Email, SEM, Social Media, Display and Video. By knocking it down to a few or even one channel and providing awesome value you can capitalize on this market share. You also have to take into account developing and optimizing your advertising across a number of platforms such as cell phones, tablets, desktop computers and laptops each has their own method you should be promoting to maximize results.
One thing I noticed while on Facebook, Twitter and other popular social networks is people really hate being sold to. Most use these services to keep in touch with family and friends and really don’t care nor want to hear about what your selling or even about your business. In fact promoting your services in the wrong ways to people on these networks can really turn them off from your business for good. This is why IMLoop.com was created, a social network geared towards Internet marketers and small business owners where you can join for free and market your products and services to the masses.
Any blogger knows it takes time and commitment to build a strong following for your blog. It’s honestly a full time job along with being creative and coming up with ways to grow your following. Sure it’s easy to set up a Facebook fan page or a twitter account and share your blog posts on them. But to achieve a large following on these networks can take years to achieve.
You can also go the paid rout posting ads on other blogs that are like yours, backlinking your blog on like websites and even using adwords to expand your reach. The only issue with this is it can quickly burn a hole in your pocket with minimal results.
What if there was a way to target your niche audience and spark more interest in your postings?

NONE OF THEM WORK!
I’m not saying they don’t work in terms of the quality of information they give, but any system out there is not as simple as clicking a button. It takes time, effort and learning the system in order to maximize your results with it. What you need to figure out is what type of system interests you. Finding one that you enjoy will lead you into better success since it wont feel like work and you will enjoy reading and learning new tactics.

It takes a unique person to have the correct mindset to be a true entrepreneur. There is a big difference between being an entrepreneur and being self employed. Over 70% of small business owners today are nothing more then self employed meaning they work for themselves but could not step away from their business and have it continue to run efficiently and effectively. A true entrepreneur mindset is letting go of your created business and putting it in others capable hands allow you to step away from your company and still have it run as if you where there every day.
