In order to become a successful marketer and business owner, you’ll need to make Marketing a habit.
When marketing becomes a routine part of your everyday life, you’ll be able to boost your profits and bring in more customers.
Watch today’s video to learn how, I will also be sharing the ”next big thing’‘ in digital marketing…
This can give you an edge for your business.
Learning is not the problem for most people, and lack of information surely isn’t the problem, as there is more than ever before.
It’s the lack of real awareness and consistent study of the right information, mixed with inconsistent execution and implementation, that holds back most back.
You don’t just listen to something then remember it.
You must put those ideas and strategies into consistent practice and repeat those actions until they are habitual and automatic.
You must summarize the key ideas, sharpen your perspective, then take more intelligent action.
There are a lot of reasons why most won’t have a business that’s profitable and enjoyable , but here are the top five…
Last month, my business hurdled across the 3-year mark. Business is fantastic.
Revenue and profits are at record levels. Lately, other people have begun noticing my prosperous little business and started asking questions…
“What is your secret?” They ask. “How have you been able to build your business from nothing to something?”.
These questions made me think about the fundamental principles I used to build my business.
Here are the six I came up with:
We often falsely believe that becoming successful in business or having a successful business is out of our control and has a lot to do with things like ”luck”, ”the right connections”, or some other nonsense.
But in reality, most successful businesses have a lot of common traits. And it goes without saying that If you can develop and embrace those traits then your chances of having a successful online business will drastically increase.
What are those traits, you ask?
I talk about them in-detail in this video:
The Facebook advertising platform is arguably the best in the world.
Digital marketers of all sizes are running all kinds of campaigns on Facebook right now as we speak.
And the best part?
They’re getting a great return on investment (ROI) on their efforts.
With that said, what works today on Facebook ads may not work tomorrow or next year…
Learn what those metrics are and how to use them for your advantage:
As a digital entrepreneur, new, fresh leads are the lifeblood of your business.
Without them, you will soon run out of services you can sell to your existing clients. You need to ensure there is always an influx of new leads pouring into your business daily.
Many will not pan out, and others will want something for free.
Resist the temptation to give your services away for the promise of a larger payday down the road. This almost never pans out, and your clients will only keep asking for more.
This is not to say you should never help someone out, but be selective and remember this is your business!
Treat it as such.
Here’s the video:
The goal of your social media efforts should be to build relationships, not sales.
Why is that?
Because this is your chance to build trust by showing your human side, as well as the types of brands and people you admire.
That’s not to say you shouldn’t take the proper steps in having a pipeline via your social channels, but if nothing else, this is the hub of your community.
These people want to be a part of your story, so let them help write it.

Any entrepreneur will tell you that startup life is not for the easily daunted.
Rejection, product failures, and isolation are just a few of the tests that many entrepreneurs are put through on a daily basis.
Add youth and inexperience to the list of things working against you—and you can see how a startup can seem like nothing but a harsh, uphill endeavor.
Luckily, entrepreneurs tend to be more optimistic than other workers, a factor that keeps them pitching to prospects and looking for ways to prove their value.
I’ve been reflecting on what has helped my partners and clients say “Yes” to the diversity consulting and training pitches I’ve put in front of them over the last five years.
Mind you, even if it’s not your age that presents a credibility issue, some other factor (industry experience, knowledge of a certain product type, geographic reach) may put you or your business in an ‘underdog’ position.
Here are my top strategies for proving your worth, regardless of your age, experience level or other factors you’re being judged on:

Building something takes a while.
So, I like to think of businesses as buildings that are under construction. Maybe you’re at the blueprint stage, or maybe you’re sweating it out laying brick, or maybe you’re already strong and steady and working on the finishes. Or maybe you’re doing a reno, or maybe you want to knock that sucker down so you can build something better.
If your business is under construction, think of the daily habits and practices in your life as the scaffolding around it — the steady, supportive platform that allows you to build what you want to build (or tear down what you want to tear down).
Milan Kundera (I’ve no idea who he is btw) once said:
Business has only two functions, marketing and innovation.
If you want to grow your business, you must work on your marketing. Fortunately, you don’t have to work all day on your marketing.
Marketing is like exercising, the difference between doing nothing and just a little every day is cumulatively enormous.
