Pin down to 9 – 5 job and Less Time with the Family?


Following the Steps Closely with Personal Coach so "Not to Waste Time and Make a Lot of Mistakes"

If you’re anything like me. I like to know more
about a person before I really start trusting them and listening to what they say…Remember the message I will mention now:

"If you want to climb the Highest Mountain, would you hire a tour guide who has never reach the summit before, or it would be wiser to hire a guy who has done it to the top many times before and know exactly the shortest and the safest way to it?"

I found myself one day completely unhappy in my life. I have a fantastic job! I work on board the luxury Cruise Ships. I'm at one time Retail Shops Manager on board the Cruise Ship.


It has been a great job, paid the bills and gave us income to live off, support my family, send my daughter to exclusive and private school and at the same time travel around the globe FREE! And what more could I asked for?

But the problem is: I have limited time with my FAMILY. I have a average contract of 6 to 7 months. Sometimes more, depending the needs of the operation on board. And I want to be with my family all the time


Having not to see my family for 6 to 7 months make me sick of it!

I made the decision right there that something had to change. My daughter is growing up without me, and soon she would be a teenager and I would miss the chance to play with her, help her doing her difficult school assignments, let alone spiritually worship together with my family, like I so desperately wanted to do!

One night on bed that I can not sleep thinking all about these, I went online and started searching for ways to use the internet to own a business from home… and then I found this: My Online Business Education.

It is a 21 steps system module course. On this course it will reveal the secret of 95 % successful of Entrepreneur are using why they are successful: it has a proper and accurate way of doing things- a 21 step-by-steps to follow.

 But I like the 7 STEPS by Entrepreneur.com, more concise, basic, easy to follow.

You will learn also and copy the exact steps that they are doing to be able to be successful . I'm a newbie, and not a technical savvy at all but I'm right now learning how to do it.

Looking back, this has been my best decision I’ve ever made. I'm so grateful that I want to share this experience to all beginners and not techie that wanted to be successful in starting their online business!

 My mentor Matt Lloyd have shown me how the huge opportunity is in front of my doorway to have a transforming life that I have been dreaming of! 

But I'm a Filipino and I can relate more on my other mentor who is a Filipino .

Please let me introduce to you:

How to create product to be able to offer and help solve people’s pain


Creating Your Own Product


Creating a product can be done in 3 ways:

  • Write or record it all in your own
  • Outsource the whole thing
  • Create part of it and outsource the other part

CREATING THE PRODUCT YOURSELF

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of options and way of creating a product on their own unique way of approach.

The following 3 are the most popular types and method how you can create your product:

1.Written

2.Audio

3.Video

You really don’t need much equipment if you are planning to write your own product. Any computer with pages or Microsoft words will be sufficient. After you’ve done writing, you can export them in PDF and you’re done.

If you want to speed up and organize your writing, take your outline and go one level deeper on each bullet points. As an example below:

  • Module Title
    • Bullet Title
      • Bullet Point
        • Sub-Bullet Point

CREATING AN AUDIO PRODUCT

Successful entrepreneur reveals that when creating Audio Product, treat it as a written product. Create a deeper level outline with more bullet points. To make it more natural, use more conversational writing tone.

As a beginner, you don’t really need an expensive microphone. You can purchase a good microphone of less than $100 at your local electronic store. Should you want to be more professional, successful entrepreneur suggests investing in the Zoom HN4 which cost you about $200.

Honestly, if you are starting off like me, it does not matter which microphone you use for the moment. When your business starts to profits and offers more cash flow, then it is recommended upgrade your sound equipment.

Why?

Even basic technology, that is the most computer available today is loaded and equipped with great software that will record your audio. That’s why you may never need professional audio studio again.

CREATING A VIDEO PRODUCT

There are 4 kinds of Video Products you can create:

1.Face to Camera

2.Screen Capture

3.Webinar and Replays

4. Scribble Pad Videos

Face to Camera videos is created by setting your video camera on a level surface and record yourself speaking to it. A lot of people are not comfortable speaking in front of video camera. It this you, no worry, don’t put yourself through it. There are other options.

But if you are doing it, pay much attention to the quality of your video and your sound. You need a good lighting and proper settings on the camera.

If the resulting shot is poor, the value of your product goes down. Use professional video team to create a high-quality shoot that in turn will produce a high-quality product.

Screen capture videos are made using a software on your computer simply by recording your screen and voice. You can prepare PowerPoint slides ahead of time and then record yourself through them by your own voiceover.

There is an advantage of doing this method because you don’t need lighting or shooting quality. Editing is almost not necessary.

Recommended software:

PC= Camtasia – about $300+

Mac= ScreenFlow – about $100+

Webinar and replay videos are created similar to screen capture videos. The Only difference is that you are conducting them Live and recording them as well.

This method has a great advantage as this allows you to start selling the product without having made the product yet.

You can sell to customers a product that is to be delivered over a certain period of days or weeks when you finished the recorded product.

This is really a great way of starting making sales and creating a product as you go.

This product is often based on PowerPoint presentation. And guess what, you can use the inexpensive microphone we mention at the begging of this discussion.

If you used a platform such as GoToWebinar to run your webinar, the software automatically records your entire webinar presentation for you!

Scribble Pad videos are made where you draw and write on the screen while you narrate your presentation.

They have the common share advantage as screen capture videos. What? You don’t need to show your face and don’t need any fancy editing.

 What Else advantage? Unlike screen capture videos, you don’t need to prepare PowerPoint ahead of time. On that way, more direct engaging with the viewer!

To create a Scribble Pad videos, you need a writing/drawing table that is compatible with your computer.

Recommended software:

Wacom Intous Pro= about-$300+

Scribble Pad= $100+

By now, you can see that is actually very easy to create your own product once your main outline is done.

You spend most of the work on your outline. As a reminder, Amazon.com is the best source in helping you quickly how to best create your outline.

The question now is: What if I do not want to create my own product?

What if I want to outsource it?

By all means, you can do that. In fact, it will be an advantage when you are just starting out, like me. It will really save you a lot of time – it can even result in a higher quality product!

USING OUTSOURCING TO CREATE YOU PRODUCT

Take advantage of the Freelance Websites. This website now providing access around the world offering international discounts.

Not only save you a lot of time but also help you to create high-quality products. Of course, you need some budget to be able to do this.

 But the most important thing is to create a high-quality product in a short period of time and leave you free time where you can concentrate on the most important thing: marketing.

7 BENEFITS OF OUTSOURCING

  • Job get more done, more quickly
  • Scale into more projects at the same time
  • Focus on marketing and list building
  • Content is well-researched and better written
  • Work on more product at the same time
  • $aves a lot of money
  • Find a long-term talent partner to work with for years.

Here are the Best Recommended Steps to follow to make your Outsourcing work well for you:

  1. Choose a freelance website.
  2. Post your project.
  3. Choose a freelancer.
  4. Manage the work output.
  5. Build a strong relationship for recurring work.

Building good relationship spent on few months with your chosen talent will be to your advantage for years to come.

Why?

Once you find a good freelancer, you will never have to post jobs or review applications-saves you a lot of Time! Just send them to email, Skype message. In just a few days later, the job is done!

Here is a simple guide how to get started with your plan outsourcing:

1-Choose A Freelancer Website

There are quite a few great freelance websites out there. Below are sample lists of the good one.

  • Freelance.com
  • Guru.com
  • Upwork.com
  • 99Designs.com
  • Fiverr.com

Freelancer.com is a great resource technical offshore developers. Recommended for simple and small project-based technical project.

Guru.com is a great resource for western-based with excellent English language and grammar skills. Prices are a bit more than the rest of the sites. The reason being is that they feature talent from western countries.

Upwork.com is an excellent source for great talent for all-around help such as programmers, content writers, personal assistants, designers. Highly recommended.

99Designs.com is a great resource for design projects. But I find them expensive more than the rest of the sites.

Here are the tip and great benefits of hiring your chosen talent from this site: Get several designers to do the project job- and then reward the project money

Only to the one you have chosen that did the right job! If you are just starting out, like me, this is too advanced and costly for you at this time.

Fiverr.com is a similar great source of all-around talent like Upwork.com. More inexpensive and you can even haggle for the price with your freelancer.

2-Post Your Project

In posting your project, be as much specific in details/description as possible to be sure your talent understand fully the job to be done.

Here my suggested tips to be sure freelancer read carefully your post details:

put a text code at the end of the paragraph/sentence in the middle and in the end of email post asking him/or her of that code.

 When your freelance respond to your post, you could ask them a question like:

If you understand fully what is required of that project, please give me the text code at the end of that sentence/paragraph, etc…?

If you are in doubt, ask question, openly communicate, hold nothing back to be sure your project come out right as you expected.

3- Choose Your Freelancer

In choosing your freelancer, here are some simple suggested standard rules to follow to more likely find a good talent:

  1. Never choose the least expensive or the most expensive bid. Choose in between.
  2. The person must have a minimum at least 9 to 10 completed projects done on the website. (Though I have tried also those who have done 4 to 5 projects and done a good job. You could do the same if you are not in a rush and you have time)
  3. Always send a private message and see how fast the freelancer responds to you. Best recommended responds within 12 hours or less.
  4. Have at least 3 private messages going back and forth to get a good feeling for that person before making a choice.
  5. Go to freelancers profile to view not only person’s review but also their star ratings. Read what their past employee have written bout them. I usually like to pick freelancers whose past employers gave them excellent ratings.

4 – Manage Your Work Output

At the beginning of your requested project, you need to keep in touch with your freelancer to know how the project is going. Use private, Skype to communicate with them.

Ask them to send you draft for your review if possible. If the freelancer is just first time working with you, to be fair, give them days or weeks to learn your preferences.

Tips: Freelancers has the habit of taking more work project that they can handle. That’s the reason you need to constantly keep in touch with them on a timely basis.

To offer hands-on guidance to your freelancer, make yourself available to them. Sound tedious, but worth it as you get the quality of work you want.

5 – Build A Strong Relationship For Recurring Work

It is good to bear in mind when you are looking for a good freelancer partner online- to build and create a reliable long-term work relationship.

It’s only at the beginning of selecting a good freelancer, that you need to spend time.

Try to keep your chosen freelancer engaged if you can. When you work with them for months o more, they will know you better, your style.

This gives you the opportunity to build that relationship that in turn give your work a priority, better rate, and speed.

It’s always a good feeling not to waste a lot of time searching a freelance on the website when you need them.

Having worked with the good freelancer in the past, you could go straight to someone and assign the work and have the confidence that they will do the job well done.

One Last Word of advice from successful Entrepreneur that I would like to share:

When I get started, I was stuck for a long time.

Why?

Because I want that my launched product would be perfect. This is a Big Mistake!

I don’t want you to experience the same mistake again( usually the same is happening to most of the newbie out there).

Never try to perfect your product! This is the good thing about online business, you can always make any changes you want and update your product anytime!

Always important to remember and ask yourself this question: ”Is there value in this product?”

If your answer is “yes”, then go and launch your product and move on to the next step.

In the next series, we will discuss how to find others product to offer and solve people's pain.

Accurate Principle of Internet Marketing #2a

“We are all obligated by our common bond of humanity to not only pursue what brings us financial success but also what can make a positive impact on our community, our environment, and our world.” Steve Olsher- author of “Internet Prophet”

 

Series #2 Gathering Information

 

Before we dive into this series #2, I would like to discuss with you about Passion.

 

What is Passion?

Passion defines, an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.

So most of us immediately concluded that passion involves doing the things you like. Fine and it’s good.

But passion goes deeper than that. Bear this in mind, to be able to be successful in anything that you enjoy doing, you also need to sacrifice of giving up something valued for the sake of something as regarded as more important or worthy. Such as time, energy, hobby, recreation, entertainment, etc…that you like and love doing to accomplish your desired goals successfully.

 

Are you ready for that?

 

As an Internet Marketer, that is your utmost Duty, your Calling, your mission.

This is also the topmost secret: your passion goes hand in hand with these elements and ingredients to keep you going and not to give up when you face challenges in the service of giving your customer the accurate solution to their problem or pain.

 

Series 1, we talk about knowing your customer first. We can not help our customer well unless we don’t know what is their problem, challenges, pain.

Now that we have identified their pains. What’s the next step? It is now easy for us to gather information, create a product to provide a solution to the problem our customer is experiencing.

 

Gathering information takes time and effort in our part to compile. Patience and perseverance are needed in selecting the best useful information.

Or if we plan in creating a product, see to it that the product we are creating will be best fits the customer needs – meaning it will really solve their problems to better their lives.

That means we have to spend hours, days or so gathering all information and creating products – not easy and all tedious task.

But because you have the passion of doing it, you love doing it and you have the satisfaction of delivering that service to your customer.

You will be rewarded with the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment at the end of the day knowing that you have helped someone solving their pain or problem.

 

Now let’s dive in:

 

  • How to search for people’s pain and challenges
  • How to gather information on the internet
  • How to compile them together as a book to offer to solve people’s pain
  • How to create a product to solve people’s pain
  • How to find other people’s product on the internet to offer to solves people pain (affiliate marketing)

 

How to search for people’s pain and challenges?

 

We are now in the Age Information technology.

Searching information on the internet is much easier compared 20 years ago. You don’t need to go to the library, search the physical book and then start gathering your needed information.

 

You now have the luxury of staying in the comfort of your home and you could gather all the information needed with the power of your fingertips and the help of a laptop, cell phone, and internet connections.

 

Before you begin your search, be sure that your chosen niche is where your passion is.

You did not choose your niche because there is a huge potential to make money on it. No. This is a big mistake to have in mind, to begin within the internet marketing industry or any business goals that you are planning to build.

This is not your focus or aim in creating your niche. Always bear in mind: The accurate principle of internet marketing is – to solve people’s problem, pain, challenges – to better their lives.

 

Google Search Tool

 

 

Words, Phrase search engine

 

 

If you are just starting out, let’s take the example of how you can find help in creating and building your website.

You are not a technical savvy –no technical knowledge at all how to build your website.

You can start typing on the Google search engine “how to build your own web site the easy way”. Google will show you a lot of information about how to do it: website, blog, tutorial, youtube video, e-book.

It will even show you some digital products about how to do your website for FREE.

 

That is the power of internet technology. Providing information right there in front of your computer and cell phone with the help of Google search engine tools.

So if you are on the niche “how to build your website”, for example, you can help the people pain( how to build my own website, as an example in this case) to build their website the easy way.

 

But you may reason: why bother gathering information or creating a product for people who wants to build their website when there is a lot of freelancers out there on the internet such as Upwork, freelancer, Fiverr, etc.. to contact and get their website done?

 

A very good question. Why?

 

I will give my self an example. I’m a newbie, no technical knowledge in building my website.

I know can get freelancer, upwok, Fiverr to do it and get it done quick. But I want to learn and want the satisfaction of building my website my self.

That’s my “problem or pain”. How you can help me? You, as an internet marketer and owner of the niche of “how to build your website”, comes into play. You are the provider of the solution on how to solve my problem or pain.

 

 

How to gather information on the Internet?

 

The Google search tool is a really great help in accomplishing our objectives in finding the information we need.

Just typing the search words, phrases, the Google search tool will show hundreds, if not thousands, website, blog, e-commerce where to get your information, products( be physical or digital one) ready at your disposal to gather them.

Of course, some of this information is not free. Why on earth, then, do we need to bother gathering this needed information or create product if the people can look and do it themselves? A very Good question?

 

Why?

 

Yes, it’s true that all information the people need is available on the internet.

But, they will not get that information unless they do some effort and do some works in searching for them on the internet.

That means they will spend time and money ( if they want to buy products online- it may be physical or digital products).

 

People are always busy.

Let us take an example of full-time housewife, let alone working mother, hardly has time to do this.

Imagine as a mother: begins her day early morning, cooking, prepare breakfast for the family, help her school children ready for school, wash the dishes, send children to school( if she arranged or hire a school bus to fetch her children, save her time).

When her children were gone to school, husband to the office, she starts cleaning the house, doing laundry if there is any.

Around 10:00 am, she started preparing to cook for lunch for her little school children or to fetch them from school.

In the afternoon, the mother starts her job as a coach, teacher, tutor for her primary school children and that will continue till the evening depending on her children’s ability grasp what she is teaching them.

Around 5 pm prepare dinner for the family, wash dishes. During the dinner, they could have some wholesome communication and talk about what happened that day.

If she has energy left, she might read a little bit of inspiration, motivation and spiritual up building books before retiring to bed.

 

After a day’s hard work, the husband and a working father have a hard time either.

I admire them if they still tried their best to be a good father in giving their child guidance and communicate with them regularly.

Of course, working hard to earn a living, does not give a father an excuse to execute their responsibility to provide them, emotionally, physically and especially, spiritually.

But you know what I mean – they have a tough schedule to do all of these.

 

So You, as an Internet Marketer, has the opportunity to provide the loop or the gap.

I would say this is your “ whole obligation” your “mission”.

Your unique personality and passion have been called so that you could create a niche that can specifically and precisely help the people with their pain.

They need your help to better their lives by providing them this Value.

 

Because of your passion for helping these people, this passion of yours will, in turn, give you motivation, inspiration in toiling, working hard to gather all the information needed to offer them.

This is your aim. How do you go about doing all of these? As we have been talking about, information technology will make it easier for you to get this job done.

But not as easy as you think, you still need time, effort and research to gather all the information needed by the help of Google search engine.

You will search the website for articles, blog, vlog, video, books( digital or physical), e-commerce site, etc….gather them and offer them to your customer. Or you can create a product yourself.

 

How to compile the information as an e-book to offer and solve people’s pain?

 

You can use keywords search relating to the subject ( the people pain and problem that you want to solve in that matter).

Google search engine is one. But I recommend going to the site called “answer the public.com”.

You could use the site to type your keywords search the topic that you want.

Just type the words or phrase and it will generate a lot of topics related to the words and phrase you have typed.

Take note though, don’t type too many words. It will not give you a good result on a related keyword that you want to search. Limit it one to 3 words phrase.

 

So you have searched the pain of the people you want to help. Start searching the information on the Internet.

The next step is compiling the gathered information as an e-book. How are you going to do that in an organized manner and easy for your reader to digest them?

 

Outline

 

To speed up and organize your writing process, you need to create an outline. This formula works well also when creating your audio and video products.

 

An example of an outline:

Task 1- Name your Chapter( or you can name Module-to perceived high value usually when you plan to create a video product)

Task 2 – Name your Sub-chapter( or you can name sections)

Task 3- Create bullet points for each subchapter

Task 4 -Assign media format to each subchapter

 

Now let’s break this down further as an example:

 

 

TASK 1- NAME YOUR CHAPTER (or Module)

 

When creating a course or product information, I highly recommend to name it modules not chapter.

Why? The word “Modules” carries perceived high value compared to the word “chapter” which readers’ associate it only to a book which values approximately less than $10.

 

Valuable tips: When creating product information: go to Amazon.com and look for 3 to 10 best-selling books related to your niche.

It will greatly help you in creating your product outline and gives you an excellent idea of what topics are most search by your buyer persona.

 

Go to Amazon .com and look for any top 10 best selling books of your chosen subject. Then click the resulting book.

Then, find the “look inside” image at the right top corner of the book image. Click the “the look image” image.

A new window will open, allowing you to see a few pages of the book. Amazon usually allows you to see at least the table of content for every book they sell.

 

Doing this will give you an idea what most people are interested in reading it.

Above all, you can angle your subject to that related topic. But avoid plagiarism- copying someone’s work. It’s illegal.

 

 

You can break your product information into 5 to 10 Chapter(or module for that matter)

 

TASK 2 – NAME YOUR SUB-CHAPTER (Sections)

 

Again, I highly recommend naming “sections” that chapter because it increased perceived the high value of your information product, usually if you are making a video course.

In the example below, I am naming it chapter as I’m using an e-book.

 

Now break you’re down your module into 3 to 5 sections depending on each topic that you want to discuss.

 

 

An example of what you’re creating:

 

Chapter 1 – Introduction

 

  1. What is this book all about?
  2. Why are you creating this book?
  3. What will you learn from this book

 

Chapter 2- Getting started with Facebook Ads

 

  1. Choosing your niche
  2. Finding a Product to Sell

 

  1. Creating your Brand and Facebook Page

 

Chapter 4 – Creating a Buyer Persona

 

  1. Basic Demographics
  2. The Persona

 

Chapter 5 – How to create your First Ads

 

  1. Facebook Power Manager
  2. How to Make Amazing Copy for Your Ad

 

Chapter 6- Facebook Image Guidelines

 

First of all, for your profile photo and cover image, you’ll need 180×180 pixels and 828×315 respectively.

For App Installs/Engagement ads, your image should be 1,200×628.

For photo adverts, the images will be 1,200×900 and for videos, you’ll have to choose a thumbnail image that’s 1,200×675.

Carousel images will be 600×600 and website links will be 1,200×628.

 

Chapter 7- Facebook Audience Targeting

 

  1. Demographics
  2. Interest
  3. Behaviors
  4. More Categories

 

 

Chapter 8 – Top Tips for Using Facebook Ads Effectively

  1. Be Upfront
  2. Target Strictly
  3. Use Eye-Catching Headlines
  4. Don’t be Afraid to Generalize
  5. Copycat
  6. Experiment
  7. Invest in High Quality

 

How to Adapt Your Strategy to the Unique Goals of your Business

  • For Selling Affiliate Product
  • For Selling Big Ticket Items
  • For Promoting a Website
  • For Local Businesses

Conclusions and Summary

With the outlined example above, you’re almost done.

Even if you hire a freelancer good writer to outsource your plan info product e-book, he can finish this in a short period of time.

The more detailed you give him/her will definitely able the writer to come out a high-quality info product.

TASK 3- CREATE A BULLET POINTS

Break your sub-chapter into bullet points just as you do breaking Chapter into sub-chapters. You can break them into 3-5 bullets points as an example below:

Chapter 7- Facebook Audience Targeting

  1. Demographics
  • Education
  • Ethnic Affinity
  • Financial
  • Generation
  • Home
  • Life Events
  • Parents
  • Politics
  • Relationships
  • Work

 

  1. Interest
  • There a huge list here…..

 

  1. Behaviors
  • Automotive
  • Behaviors
  • Behaviors targeting
  • Purchase behavior
  • Charitable donations
  • Consumer classification
  • Digital activities
  • Financial
  • Mobile device user
  • Network connection
  • Travel
  • Residential profile

 

 

TASK 4 – ASSIGN MEDIA FORMAT & LENGTH

 

Carrying out this task will help you to organize your thought usually if you intend to create a video or audio course. An example of an outline below:

 

1.Introduction on What you will benefit from this book ( 1 – 2 pages written)

2.Tutorial on how to make your first Facebook ad ( video – 20-30 minutes)

3.Facebook Image Guidelines –Where to get free best stock photo website( audio 20 – 30 minutes)

There you have some simple guide tips in creating your info products. Using Amazon.com is the secret and a great way of helping you to create your info product – easy and fast way.

 

Writing your E-book

You can use simple words processing program to write your e-books such as Microsoft word or word perfect. You can write as much as you can about the topic base on your outline.

Initially, don’t worry about grammar or spelling. Your goal is to write volumes on the subject.

Prepare your E-cover

To give your e-book an attractive cover, you can use graphics to create a visual representation.

Since no one will be able to ‘physically’ behold your ebook (unlike a printed book), the alternative is to create a cover for the e-book that will give your readers the feeling of a real book.

There is a lot of help that you can get from Adobe Image Styler or Adobe Photoshop.

You can make of website such as canva.com, adazing.com. If you are not comfortable doing it, you can hire professional designers like hypercovers.com or absolutecovers.com

Accurate Principle of Internet Marketing

Accurate Principles of Internet Marketing

Series 1: Know Your Customer First

 

“The aim of marketing is to understand the customer well, the product that fits him and sells itself” Peter Dracker.

 

 

So much information is now flooding the internet nowadays. Information that you need is just right at the tips of your fingers in searching the target topics and desired information: from Google search and from so-called Guru on every certain topic, blog, and niches.

 

You go to Google search and you are overwhelmed by such information on certain topics that you are looking for. Every now and then a new updated knowledge has been added to those topics.

 

That accumulated knowledge information you want to gather from your search overwhelmed you more than ever. On top of that, you really don’t know exactly which one are the best, accurate and effective that you can you use.

 

With all of these tons of storage knowledge in a certain topic available at your disposal, which ones are you going to use effectively?

You are not alone, many internet marketers out there can relate to that experience. In fact, both long, old-timer and newbie are experiencing that, including myself.

 

As an internet marketer, what is your main purpose of gathering information, creating a product( physical or digital)?:

Why is it very important that we, including myself, should know our customer needs and wants first before gathering information.

 

The simple basic truth and must be the first priority that every single internet marketer bear in mind:

  • We can not help our customer very well if we don’t know his pains
  • We will spend a lot of money on ads and marketing on the product that you want to sell but nobody wants it. (I’m speaking from my own experience as a newbie internet marketer, let alone frustrated internet marketer out there.)
  • Be sure that your niche and passion is incongruent with the pain the customer is facing so that you can offer the right and accurate solution to their problem and can better their lives.

 

 

Now that we know these 3 basic simple truth that every single internet marker should bear in mind, it is more easier for us to gather information, create a product to offer the right solution to the customer pain- that is the purpose of writing this article- I called this the accurate principle of internet marketing

Advanced Targeting Strategies for Facebook Ads

 

One of the biggest advantages of Facebook Ads is the ability to target your ads specifically at particular audiences. This means that you can ensure only people who are likely to want to buy from you see your ads and that you aren’t wasting any of your budget on clicks that don’t end up converting.

Facebook, like many other social networks and advertising platforms, allows you to target your ads based on all the usual demographics such as age and sex. Where Facebook goes above and beyond though, is in providing you with advanced tools to target people by a range of different factors. Consider some of these impressive options and build them into your own campaign…

More Specific Targeting

Firstly, Facebook Ads allows you to target your audience based on a lot more metrics than just those main two. You can also target based on location for instance, by selecting a location on a map and then decide how far outside that location you want your marketing to spread.

Better yet, you can also target your audience based on their hobbies and interests – so that you could sell a weights bench only to fitness fanatics for instance. You can also look at your audience based on things like their likelihood of owning property, thereby ascertaining whether or not they’re likely to have the space for your weights bench.

Advanced Filtering

Being able to choose these specific stats and show ads accordingly would be impressive enough on its own. However, Facebook goes above and beyond by allowing you to filter your audience by looking for specific combinations of those elements and even by excluding people in certain groups!

Remarketing

Like Google AdWords, Facebook Ads also offers the handy ability to remarket. This means that your showing people ads after they have already been to your website and shown an interest in what you’re selling. If someone lingers on the checkout button and changes their mind for instance, you can later show them your advert at a time when they may be filling a little more impulsive.

Custom Lists

Even more handy is the ability to create your own custom audience. You can do this by using emails collected for a mailing list for example and Facebook will then attempt to assign each of those emails to a relevant Facebook contact. They can even find you more people to advertise to who fall into similar categories based on your list!

Hope this article helps you in your aim to target your right audience.
