6 Basic Mistakes that will bring your Internet Marketing Campaign Crumbling like a House of Cards

House of Cards

Internet marketing has been the song that many e-commerce establishments have been singing and quite rightly so the concept has proved to be one of the most effective business promotion tools of the 21st century. I personally am a very big fun of simplicity and more often than not the main secret for success is simply based on getting the small things right.

For many businesses that are leveraging on the use of the internet to expand their markets setting in place an efficient and goal oriented internet marketing strategy is a primary necessity. However for the last five years simple and basic mistakes have deterred online based businesses from reaping off the maximum benefit of e-marketing. The following is a list of basic mistakes you should avoid in your internet marketing program.

 

Poor Financial Planning

Budgeting is a very important aspect in our day to day life. Am sure many of you will agree with me in this because if you don’t plan your budget well you are doomed to fail in anything you do. When it comes to internet marketing the story is not any different and that is why you need to be careful in your budgetary allocations so as to avoid underfunding and misappropriation.

Marketers should lay down a well planned budget showing distribution of funds for different tasks that need to be carried out. For sure funds allocated for different tasks will vary. For instance, if you want to create a website or to advertise in social media the financial allocation will be very different. Your success in internet marketing will depend on your mode of financial planning therefore plan well and on time.

 

An Impatient Attitude

Many of us lack the virtue of patience but patience is very crucial if you have to achieve your goals and objectives. If at all you need to succeed in e-marketing trust me, you need patience!! Internet marketing is just like a small baby who will go through various stages before they get to walk.

Any marketer should know that also in marketing you will not get results immediately, so you should not give up and wait for the end results because when you start eating the fruits of your labour you will surely enjoy. You should be ready to invest time and money without giving up because if you do you are just like a withered tree.

 

Limiting Your Potential

Internet marketing for sure has a lot of potential and it can help you market a diversity of businesses. Many people underestimate the potential of internet marketing thus not putting a lot of hard work and effort in it. I assure you that if you can put all your efforts this can be the best channel for you to succeed in your business therefore exploit its potential.

 

Poor Leads Follow Up

The most important priority for internet marketing is to generate business leads. Following up leads can help in closing down important sales and customer acquisition. Lead follow up involves simple techniques such as responding to customer queries and concerns as well as offering additional information to potential customers.

 

Being Over Ambitious

Sometime being over ambitious can lead as to do wrong things even lying. Some business owners may not be able to get good leads and may even decide to give empty promises to their customers which they cannot be able to fulfill forgetting that everything hidden in the dark will come to light. Client will end up discovering this lies thus sales will reduce at a great deal. The marketers therefore need to develop marketing strategies that will attract potential customers and within their abilities.

 

Forgetting your On-Page SEO

Another mistake that online based business owners do is forgetting their on-page SEO. Developing well optimized and high quality content is a fundamental game changer that may as well have the  final say if your e-marketing strategy will work or not. The good thing is coming with entertaining and informative content is not hard and anyone can do it. If you can avoid these four basic mistakes, there is no doubt you will be among the few who are now using e-marketing as their mainstream product and service promotion tool.

  1. Hey Latoya,

    Well said about the lead part. For me, the biggest mistake is NOT following up closely. It doesn’t matter it is small marketing or a huge one. A lead is a lead, a plan is a plan. Stick to it and work it out to the max.
