2 Traits of a Successful Internet Marketer : Want to know the secret of a successful internet marketer? Successful internet marketers are like professional athletes. They are the “crème de la crème” of the internet marketing world. While they may not seem as famous and highly acclaimed as you think, they are still the best at what they do.
If you’ve ever heard of someone making $2,000 a month online, and you looked at them as if they were amateurs – you’re not yourself.
Do you know how hard it is to make $2,000 per month online? Some people will sacrifice their left little finger to get $2,000 per month that comes in automatically. That is why the failure rate of online business is very high. But successful internet marketers know that there is big work involved, and you can’t look at internet marketing as if you were drawing the lottery.
Most people online who have been trying to make money for years believe that if they can get the best copywriter… the best product… or the best marketing consultant, they can make $10,000 per month instantly. That is not true. For 98% of people who sell online, their chances of making $10,000 in one month will indeed come from the lottery. But successful internet marketers know that online success is not a matter of being successful or not.
As a successful internet marketer, I can tell you that true success comes from planning. You have to know your numbers, you have to be diligent and persistent with your marketing, and your paid advertising has to make sense – and bring in high-quality traffic. I want to share with you why this is important, and why successful internet marketers have all these things in common. Look at this:

Small Business Management : Running a small business just starting out has its ups and downs. When I launched my company almost nine years ago, running my own small business was both rewarding and challenging. This has allowed me to establish greater balance in my life as I have reduced the administrative burden that corporate America places on each of its employees and replaced it with more time spent developing content for my clients.
Given the choice, running my own small business was the best choice for me at this stage of my life. I can work outside the home, see my kids regularly, focus my work efforts on content, rather than administration, and yes a bit of golf. Because of this, I’m constantly being asked by others, “What’s it like doing business for yourself?” as they contemplate the leap from corporations to sole proprietorships.
While not for everyone, here are some points to consider before starting your own small business:
One Stop Shop: One of the benefits of being a small business owner is the “call the right” autonomy. You are the boss and can obviously steer your company in your favor. Many think they like this arrangement, but the truth is, when it comes to being the self-motivator necessary to be successful – the “man” to aim for – many fail. Before you read any further, ask yourself if you’re cut out to be the “go to guy.” Otherwise, you can save a lot of time and frustration. It’s enough to live in the corporate world.
Develop a Business Plan: So why is business planning so important? In short, it provides “clarity”. Investing time to develop a plan provides proper clarification of the company’s vision. In addition, it provides a mechanism for measuring business results and provides a … Read more
How Do I Find My Google Ads?
Understand Google ads and why you might not find your ad where you expect it
Oh, I see. You’ve invested money in Google ads (smart move!). And you see other people’s Google ads every time you browse the internet.
So why don’t you ever see your own ad?
This is a question we ask our clients all the time. And there is a simple answer.
But first, to put you at ease: don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong if your Google ads don’t show your own personal search results.
In fact, this is what you often expect.
We’ll cover Google advertising and SEM (search engine marketing) in more detail below.
But first, we asked our permanent advertising expert, Daniel Simmons, to solve this question once and for all – why can’t you see your own Google Ads?
Understanding Google Ads (and why you shouldn’t see your own ads)
Google ads can be used to create brand awareness, but are often best used to sell or promote a product or service, generate website traffic, or get email list signups. When used this way, they offer an easy-to-measure ROI, so you can understand how your advertising money is working for you.
Ultimately, budget plays a big factor in whether or not you will see your own ad. But first, let’s explore the two types of Google Ads – search ads and display ads – because the type of ad you use can be a determining factor in whether and when you’ll see it in person.
As the name suggests, Search Ads are ads that appear when someone performs a Google search. Say you’re a plumber in Kelowna. If someone searches for ‘plumber in Kelowna’ on Google, then your ad may appear in their search … Read more
