Hi Kal, thanks for your comment. I am not sure what happened to those people whom you mentioned in the comment. Are they alright? I guess, as the writer I am at liberty to include marketers whom I like or have interacted with. For this post I have included only those marketers with whom I have some level of interaction. Harsh for example wanted to hire me for his blog. I have known Matthew Woodward since the time he started his award winning blog and so on.People like Frank Kern are so busy that they won’t even notice if I have written about them and they don’t actively blog too, I guess.
This is a process described by Seth Godin known as permission marketing. The core concept of this idea is that you never market to someone that doesn’t want it, you first have to ask them for their permission. When someone signs up to your email not only do they become a warm lead but they give you their permission to send them offers and to market to them.
To get more Web traffic and leads, you need to continually optimize your visit-to-sale conversion rate. The more effective your company’s sales process is, the more marketing options you have. If all other things are equal (average revenue per sale, gross margin, etc.), a company that converts twice as many Web visits into leads can afford to pay twice as much per click or visit. Being able to pay more per click or visit allows you to bid higher in the PPC listings and spend more on SEO—both of which ultimately result in more traffic and leads.
Find a market that is hungry for a product or service and give them what they want. Succeeding as an entrepreneur and as a marketer requires a combination of offering the right product, crafting the right message, and getting that message in front of the right audience. If your marketing campaigns aren’t bringing you a positive return on investment, you may have missed the mark on some, if not all, of these components.

In the following article, we will walk you through all the necessary steps to get you to a comfortable place of understanding what digital marketing is and how to use custom tools and strategies to your advantage?
Don’t read everything at once. There is a lot of great information in here, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed after reading through all of the content in one sitting. Instead, take incremental steps. For example, if you want to find out where or how to ask people for their emails on your site, read the content in chapter 2. Implement it, then come back later for the next steps.

When we share a content to someone , we expect them to experience the content in the way we intended. Well, it’s just not possible with plain old text/link sharing as in that; when the person at the other end click the link it’s going to lead them directly to the content leaving your intended reason to share and your opinion about the particular content to pure chance to be received as it is.

It doesn’t need to be overly complex or convoluted. In fact, the best lead magnets are simple and can be easily digested within five minutes. All you’re aiming to do with a lead magnet is to offer as much value as possible in its simplest form. The only difficult bit is making sure that you know your audience well enough to be offering something that you know they will like.
Setting your goals should rely on the knowledge you glean from reviewing your metrics. Study your Google and social analytics to help you determine the attainable and realistic aspects of your goals. For example, getting “more” likes for your product’s Facebook page is desirable, but it’s not a particularly SMART goal. Getting 100 new Facebook likes within three months, however, is much SMARTer.

These are terrific. One bit I’d like to add: I look forward to a time when we add a facilitation piece, not just a content push piece. We have devoted centuries to getting in, getting seen, finding buyers. But we come in at the last point of the buying decision path – when they make a solution choice. There is so very much hidden from us (consensus issues, systems issues, people issues) that have little to do with our solution and everything to do with their ability to buy without internal disruption, and current marketing capabilities are not addressing this. It’s not hard to get to buyers at their first idea and help them assemble their entire buying decision team. But we’re not doing it. I look forward to the time when we do.
This post reminds me of when I used to do marketing dance clubs and bars. Often time the owners of the bars had no idea about owning a bar, they were self employed contractors with a skill that made them alot of money. Most times than not, their Bar or Club venture did not. In marketing their venture they would take a shot gun approach and try and advertise it as everything to everyone! So every night of the week they had a special thing. I would say look you are a contractor and you do plumbing right. You don’t do carpentry or lay carpet. No would be the answer but I could! (They are always the entrepeneur.) I would say thats fine, but would you advertise that you are the best carpenter in the land and everyone should call you Joe the Plumber over Joe the carpenter? No would be the reply! If you are going to go into a new venture be it entertainment mogul or house building pick one aspect of that business and do that well. Don’t be the everything to everybody!
If you’re serious about growing your business, building a healthy email list should be one of your top priorities. When it comes down to it, your list is one of the only online assets that you have 100% control over. Having a solid social media presence is absolutely essential (here’s why), but you’ll always be at the mercy of new and changing algorithms (think Facebook’s Edgerank). And achieving high search engine rankings is great too, but again, you’re at the mercy of changing algorithms and updates.

Sponsor a video contest in which customers create a one-minute video about why they like your business, products or services. Ask them to send the videos to you and post them to your Facebook page. Invite visitors to vote on which video should win a cash or merchandise prize. Include an email opt-in on your Facebook page. Be sure to follow Facebook’s rules regarding contests.
If you use (or plan to use) social media channels to connect with customers, consider applications that monitor social media conversations, track the results of social media marketing activities and allow you to measure the results of these campaigns. While social media marketing functionality is sometimes included in marketing automation platforms, many vendors also offer this as a best-of-breed solution.

Social media marketing is a form of digital marketing that involves marketing across social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Advertising campaigns on social media are quick to set up and you can target these ads to specific groups of people. The amount of data that is collected through social media can help you tweak ads to make them more aligned with what your customers want to see as well as make your dollar stretch as far as it can. Advertising on social media is by far the cheapest way to advertise.
I won’t lie to you, it does take a fair amount of preparation and time to build your authority up to this point.
