Social Media and Search Engine Traffic

There are two types of traffic:

  1. Traffic which comes from internet users who find you thru search engines, or by following a link, paid or unpaid, to your site.
  2. Traffic coming from mailing lists or socal networks, which you can induce by sending an email to your list, or by making a post to facebook, twitter etc.

Know The Difference
I do not have direct influence, when people search for, lets say a flight from Mumbai to Frankfurt. And if they reach me, they are not very likely to trust me with their credit card information, because they do not have a real clue, who I am.
People, whom I reach thru my mailing list, or Facebook and Twitter, had a chance to learn a lot more about me. They have an idea whom I am. This makes it is easier for them to trust me.
And I have the opportunity to tell them about a hot offer, when it is available. And sometimes, I can give an advance notice, before a price is going up. This makes them much more likely to buy. Why? Because my offer is timely, and because they have a chance to know me as a person.

So, there is a sequence from first time visitor to member of a mailing list, and/or to connect via social media. This allows us to develop a relationship and trust..

Be Successful

Strong Simple truth
One of the big truth is so simple: If you want to be successful, copy the people who are successful. It is that simple. I know, it is also painful, because this truth hurts the ego. But its your choice, your current ego …, success … . Do not allow your ego to block your personal development.

What is Success?
This is not so simple. There are a few hurdles, hidden traps. The first one: Success is a word with many different meanings for different people. It means actually only, that you reach your goals, but it does not say anything about your goals. If you define the wrong goals, which do not correspondent to your needs, you will be successful and miserable. And do not think, this is a rare occurrence. Many are in that state.
One more hint: Success is a state of mind. It is not about having things, but about being what you are, living your own life. There are successful gardeners, successful dentists and successful musicians. Each of them may have very different things, the dentist has possibly more than the gardener etc. But there are also miserable dentists or lawyers who have all the money they ever dreamt of, but still unhappy.

Find People to Copy
After you defined what success means for you, look for people who are successful in that sense. Find people, whom you like. This means people, where you can say I would like to be like them, to behave like them, to think like them, to live like them. Study them and copy them. Do what they are doing. Over time you will get their results.

Possible Role Models
If you are looking for success in internet marketing, I want to suggest a few people whom you should study:

Take Your Time. Do Research.
These eigth are a good beginning. Look at them, what they are doing, how they behave, their results. Watch them over some time. Suscribe to their newsletters. Read their free materials, watch their videos.
After some time, maybe you find a person, whom you want to copy. Or one of them leads to to somebody, whom you want to copy. Then just copy the behaviour, thinking, actions of the person, who is like you want to be.
