If you are reading this, chances are you are struggling to build your online business. Don’t feel like you are alone. 95% of the people that get involved in starting a new business fail at ever making any decent income. For some, it is definitely a lack of self confidence. For others, it is an expectation that money grows on trees and they don’t understand why their business is not making hundreds of thousands of dollars two weeks after starting it. But even those with all the elements of a good business plan, a well-researched idea and the confidence to make it work can fall down if they don't properly account for the importance of SEO and digital marketing.
Yes, it’s true, digital marketing saved my life! Back in 2001 I started my first business. Unfortunately I failed miserably because at that time I didn’t know how to properly build and market a business. After 16 months of consistent “no’s” and failure I threw in the towel and called it quits! At the time SEO and digital marketing were still relatively new techniques producing unreliable results (hence all Google's regular updates ever since on how it decides which website to rank where in the search listings). But starting a business today is another matter entirely.
Are you currently trying to get your posts and blog to rank high in the search engines? Are you struggling to get results? Currently, I am using an incredible online social syndication platform known as Tribepro to get 2500-3000 powerful social syndication backlinks to my articles, videos and blog posts. However, there is a BIG piece of the puzzle missing from Tribepro that I have found!
I would like to thank my amazing wife, my two children and my dog Barley….haha!! In all honesty though, I am super pumped that I reached a major business milestone. By no means did I make this blog post to “toot my own horn.” The purpose of this post is to provide motivation to those of you that are struggling to grow your business.
It is amazing to see how the online marketing industry has changed over the past ten years - for a start we used to all call it search engine optimisation. I started my first company back in 2001 and from the very beginning I was encouraged to market the business online in whatever way I could: buying thousands of links, keyword stuffing my online content.
As I’m sure you can imagine, this online marketing strategy did not get me very far. Honestly, it absolutely sucked!
It was not until early 2011 that I realized that I needed to start marketing my business online in a different way. The old school ways of SEO were a thing of the past. I looked high and low for an online marketing strategy that would work. My life and business have changed ever since!
