There are many obstacles you will need to overcome in your internet marketing business…
You are going to find different obstacles at every stage as you business grows.
If you are new to marketing a business online, be it a network marketing/MLM company, an affiliate business, or just an old fashioned brick and mortar business; your challenges will be the same. Some of the most common obstacles you will hear about are:
Obstacles to overcome in your internet marketing business
Objections – Money, Time, I’m not a salesmen…
Fear of Rejection – Some people can’t deal with hearing the word No!
Ridicule – What people will think. Naysayers and Negativity!
I don’t have enough people to talk to about my opportunity!
Cost of advertising!
The list goes on and on. Many are very valid obstacles that do need to be overcome in order for your business to succeed!
These are the 5 biggest obstacles to overcome in your internet marketing business:
1. Know How To Drive Traffic, Generate Leads, & Close The Deal!
If you’ve been in this industry for any length of time you have come up against the age old problem of having enough people to talk to about your opportunity. After you have gone through your warm market of leads, where do you turn? Volumes have been written on how to generate leads and closing the deal. I’ve found some great info at eHow Money: http://www.ehow.com/network-marketing
As for how to drive traffic, well, there are numerous ways and strategies you can adopt: Article Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Google or Facebook PPC, Solo Advertising, Blogging, Classified Ads and many more.
2. Know How To Speak To Your Target Audience
People are looking for a solution to the frustration they are having. No matter what the product or service is, offer the solution to their problem with your marketing if you want to make the sale and a happy customer!
Anyone looking to buy a Saw wasn’t really looking for a Saw, they were looking to make a Cut. In your marketing, offer them the solution on “How to make the perfect cut” and chances are they will buy your Saw.
Anyone can advertise a saw, but by giving away or inexpensively selling the solution on how to make a perfect cut every time, you’ll stand out from the competition.
3. Know How To Gain Trust From Your Prospects
People buy from those they know, like and trust! So how do you gain your prospect’s or potential customer’s trust? By leading with value and willingly offering solutions to their problems with no expectations in return. Sounds cliche but the more you give, the more you get in return. Build your “Brand” by offering one solution at a time. Research and figure out what people need, then provide the answers free of charge (in most cases). This will “Brand” you as a leader, people will naturally want to follow you, eventually leading to a sale down the road.
4. Know How To Inspire Your Team, or Downline
Typically you will hear your upline and others say to sit down with your new team member and get them to write out their “Why” and “Make A List” of 100 names… It’s good to find out what his or her goals are, what they expect to accomplish, and their dreams, if you are going to help them overcome obstacles and the road blocks along the way.
5. Know Your Target Audience
Marketing = Your Audience ie. Who Are You Talking To?
You will waste a lot of time, effort, and money by talking to the wrong group of people!
Do a little market research on your own. It’s easy enough these days with all that is available online. Simple Google research in your niche market is going to tell you a lot about what people are looking for.
Don’t try to go after too broad of a market, take the time to narrow your audience down. It’s better to reach a smaller percentage of people interested and ready to buy what you have to offer, as opposed to a large percentage who couldn’t care less and will never buy!
As the old saying goes: “People will buy when they are ready to buy, NOT when you are ready to sell.”
Regardless of what product or service you are selling, keep this one thing in mind and your business will increase 10-fold.
