There is an estimated 95% – 97% failure rate for marketers online. Why? Because they lack the training
and support that it takes to make money online. Most of them really do want to make money online but they
find it difficult to promote their product or service. They have difficulties because no one has taken them by
the hand and shown them how to market. Making just a few changes can quickly turn that failure rate around.
If you truly want to succeed online, you must truly KEEP IT SIMPLE and implement just a few strategies that
will enhance your online visibility.
That being said, there are numerous ways to market your business online, the problem is that most
people have no idea where to start. In my own quest for generating leads, I found that I was making it too
complicated and that I had all the necessary tools right in front of me. It doesn’t matter what you’re marketing
you have to build relationships. People buy from those that they like, know and trust. So what better way to
build a relationship than using Social Networking. There are so many social networking opportunities like
forums, Myspace, Youtube, Squidoo, Twitter, etc. If you’ve discounted social networking to build your
business you’re making a big mistake. There is no need to sign up for all of them, but utilizing the power of social
networking sites will give you access to many opportunities. Using these sites will also bring you some good
search engine listings. Why? Because they have massive traffic and fresh content.
Social Bookmarking is another powerful way of increasing your visibility. Sharing information that is
helpful to others is what social bookmarking is all about. For instance, if you come across an article that teaches
traffic generation and you want to share it with the world, just bookmark it on Digg, Propeller, Reddit or Twitter.
It doesn’t matter if it’s your own content or someone else’s. What better way to build credibility in your industry
than helping someone become better at building their business.

Video is a way of broadcasting your face to the world, remember people buy from people they like, trust and
know. What better way to build a relationship and gain the trust of potentially millions of people across the globe.
With video you become the expert and build credibility, people enjoy watching videos that are valuable or even
funny. Just look at how much television is watched. Besides, it’s free to put up a video and you don’t have to be
an expert, just be yourself.

2-3 articles per day and you will soon see the potential of attracting new prospects weekly. Just remember to
write good content and again KEEP IT SIMPLE.
