What is the goal of internet marketing?
The goal of internet marketing is to make money, and you make money by making sales. In order to be considered a “business”, you must be making money. A blog that doesn’t make money is a hobby. If you’re not focused on sales, you’re off course.
Getting Off Course
Getting off course is easy: you might be lost in the social media world, or you might be caught up in giveaways. You may find yourself working more on creating an interesting blog than creating sales. These activities might be fun to do, but they don’t help you make sales. How do you stay on course in your internet marketing?
Staying On Course
You need to keep track of what you are doing and how many sales you make. Keep track daily, weekly, and monthly so you can see trends. What are you doing to make an increase? Are your sales increasing? Or are your sales staying the same? What can you do to improve sales? If your sales are decreasing, what is causing this decrease? What are you doing differently? Tracking sales and making goals are the best ways to keep on track and succeed in internet marketing.
