Outsourcing is a hot topic right now, given how much opportunity there is and how little time all of us have. The issue isn’t how to make money, it is where to make it. The field of internet marketing is literally a cash haven, but it has to be done right, or that cash cow can turn into an angry bull.
So how do you do internet marketing right?
There are a 4 tips you must follow, and then I’ll talk about outsourcing.
If you have seen me present, you probably have a feel for what I am about to say – because my message is always the same.
1. You need a mentor – I don’t say this because I am one, I say this because to make it in this field in any decent amount of time, you need a jump start. There is simply too much information to sift through, sort out, combine, and culminate into a sequence that actually makes money. It is vast, and wide, and confusing, and a mentor keeps you laser focused on one task, until you get that done, and it is making money.
I am also asked with respect to the mentor, why don’t I just outsource it, and skip the mentor. So before I go into my other 3 points, I will touch on an outsourcing myth here. That myth is that they know what they are doing. They can do a great job, and I highly recommend outsourcing, but they need to be told so specifically what you need, such that if you don’t know what you need, or exactly what it should look like in order for it to be effective, neither will they.
They give back exactly what you ask for.
So if you don’t know how to create a landing page, neither will they. Or if that headline is effective, or those keywords optimized, and the list goes on. Many say they know – however if they really knew what they were doing, they wouldn’t be there. They would be off applying what they knew and making millions. Not the $3 – $10 per hour you are about to offer.
So BIG outsourcing tip – you have to know how to do something, or how it’s done, in order for them to duplicate what you need.
2. Mindset is critical – Working hard without a mindset to match can turn into a walk in cement with bare feet. No matter how hard you work, eventually you will get stuck. You need to balance the energy you put into mindset with practical application. You can’t outsource mindset, you need to grant this gift to yourself. So seek out sources that infuse you with positive energy, daily affirmations, and knock out anything negative in your life fast.
3. Use Formulas – Every field in internet marketing has a formula. Landing pages, sales pages, autoresponders, copywriting, article marketing, traffic, and each has a step-by-step easy to follow way to master that skill. And mentors hold these formulas. You can watch DVDs, read ebooks, and do internet searches, but unless it leads to a step-by-step action plan you can follow, you will be back to the hard work with varied results. Those resources are excellent supplements to a mentor, but the way you get the powerhouse formula, is directly from the horses mouth. In most cases, that is how the golden nuggets are passed along.
4. Once a skill is mastered – you’re ready to outsource
Once you have mastered a skill though, then is the time to document how you do it, use camtasia or free screen capture products, and then go to a resource that allows you to post a job, and get reverse bids.
