There are so many moving parts involved when building an online home based business. Sometimes you don’t know if you are coming or going.

Your going to work anyway so why not do it the best way possible. Let’s explore 5 top internet marketing tips for your online home business success.

Internet Marketing Tips That Work

1. Work Around The Technical Stuff

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrating it is when an opt-in form doesn’t align correctly. That little coding issue use to take a good chunk of my day trying to figure how to fix it. By the time I did fix it, I was so discouraged that my brain could not handle another hiccup so I would call it quits for the day. These were typical scenarios for me when I was first getting started. I thought that my business had to operate like an assembly line. The notion that one action was dependant on the next action, in most cases that wasn’t correct. In the online internet marketing space the more that you focus on your technical issues the more it magnifies. Work your best around them. Prepare the content that you need while you either research on how to fix it yourself or outsource it. You can always get cheap techy help on Fiverr. Don’t get lost in the sea of information out there. You will find that you can get a lot more done if you don’t slow down for technical interruptions.

 2. Get An Internet Marketing Mentor

You learn either from mentors or from mistakes. Having a mentor is like having a short cut to success. When you have an internet marketing mentor, they are able to guide you through your marketing efforts and quickly show you your shortcomings. Your mentor should be someone who is getting the type of results that you want. They don’t have to be a mega guru or anything like that. What is most important is that you have access to them. This is someone who you can get on the phone with or meet in person. This is how you can get clear guidance and understanding on how to reach your goals. Another type of mentorship is what I like to call a Virtual Mentor. Some of my virtual mentors include Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Oprah Winfrey, and Tony Robbins just to name a few. They are people I highly respect and I use their thoughts, ideas, knowledge and expertise to my advantage in life and in business. Its from their books, trainings and teachings that I am able to associate with them even though I don’t have direct access to them. Essentially anyone in business for themselves should have “Real Mentor(s)” and a “Viral Mentor(s)”.

 3.  Leverage Automated Systems As Much As Possible

This internet marketing tip might seem obvious but I see way too many online home based business owners going about their business the long and hard way. Many think that they get extra brownie points for doing everything themselves. They speak of a laptop lifestyle but put in 10-14 hour days because they have no systems in place. The acronym for SYSTEM is Save Your Self Time Energy & Money. Having systems in place will make you far more productive then doing it alone. Build a system for how you create content, how you promote on social media, how you follow-up, etc. Then automate that process using tools and software. This will allow a good portion of your business to be hands free and you can focus on creating new business. Let me be clear that if you are just starting out, you will have long days because you are in the learning phase and there is benefit to learning how to do some of the automated process manually. But it should be your goal to get your business into automation as quickly as possible. This business is all about leverage so you can be free to do what you want. If its been several months and you are still struggling to get results in your business then reference the #2 tip again.

 4. Have A Daily Methods of Operation (DMO)

My day is navigated by lists. I usually do everything in my power to get everything crossed off my list. Some days I don’t go to bed without my list being completed. It’s a simple way most of us work through our day but do you have a list for the daily activities in your business? Its called having a Daily Methods of Operation (DMO). Every real business has one and you have a real business, right! So what are the functional daily activities that must get done in order for your business to advance. Success is found in doing the everyday, boring, mundane disciplines. Some of the methods may not be sexy but its necessary to run your business effectively. Create a DMO that fits into your lifestyle and make sure that you do it DAILY.

 5. Be Laser Focused

I love the famous acronym for FOCUS: Follow One Course Until Successful. As an online marketer for your home based business you probably have a lot of balls in the air. Whether it’s a new product to promote or new content to produce, your workload can distract you from the task at hand. What exactly is the goal your trying to reach? Do you want to be the #1 marketer in a contest? Do you want to launch your own product? Do you want to JV with key leaders? Do you want to be a speaker at the next company event? It all requires laser focus. Part of it goes back to your DMO. And part of it has to do with your time management. But you need to figure out what steps you need to take and create a blueprint for yourself outlining what you need to do each day until you meet the deadline. Yes, you must have a deadline or it’s just a wish.  Shiny ball syndrome is ramped inside of this industry. Keep your eyes on the prize and you will be steps ahead of your competition.

Its Your Time

On top of everything you will be learning you must be very strict with your time. It’s the one thing that you can never get back and once wasted its over. Your business is just one part of your life. Working on it may not be the highlight of your day but what you really want is the result of the result. You want a business, the business gives you money, the money allows you to have the lifestyle you deserve. So have the end in mind while you go through the process. Think of all the people you are going to inspire and touch just by you deciding to be dedicated and focus on your home based business. Apply these internet marketing tips and you will be the leader that people want to follow.
