WHERE ARE THE VISITORS!
Mr Newbie gives up.
Since I was a kid, I've always hated sad endings.
So let's assume Mr N. decides to give it one last chance - what should he do?
Well money can be earned in competitive field of Internet marketing, but he obviously needs visitors to his website - more than just throwing a bit of money at banner ads, or pay-per-click search engines.
Both can be fine, but what he really needs is a traffic plan.
Firstly, he realizes that there are two main types of traffic - paid for and free.
He makes a list of all of free traffic generating systems he knows, and researches a few more.
He is amazed at how many good traffic generating programs there are, and how many are so easily implemented. One involves setting his start page differently. With one he has to add an exit pop-up, and with another he has to surf looking at webpages to earn hits to his own.
Mr Newbie gets an immediate increase in visitors to his website. What's more, because of viral effect of some of these plans, his traffic grows on a daily basis. He also gets a lot more subscribers to his newsletter.
Secondly, he gets a vital component; he gets an ad tracking service for tracking his ads, so that he knows which are pulling in visitors and which ones aren't. He is now ready to tackle paid advertising.
Now that he can measure success of each individual ad, he is astonished at how he can make money. Even though he gets a terrible response rate to one ad, it turns out that he still makes a profit from it. He wouldn't have known this before getting his ad tracker. He doubles size of this campaign and makes more money!
Mr Newbie gets amazing amounts of visitors from his traffic plan, from his list of free traffic generators, and from his list of places that are profitable for his paid ads - his business is a success!!
Last I'd heard of Mr.N he was sipping cocktails and sunning himself on a white sand beach someplace. Oh, and he'd changed his name to Mr.G - or Mr Guru, to give him his full title.
