Secret #2: Creating your Marketing Timeline for Success!


You can increase your sales and free time by creating your own marketing timeline. Marketing timelines are essential for all Internet businesses. They provide not only organization but a truly well defined goal sheet as well.

To understand your timeline is to understand your business. Can you really know where you are going if you don't have a goal? I think not! Can you really tell how well you are doing if you are not logging your results? I think not again! Can you really tell what your profit margin is at this moment and will be next month at this time without tracking your sales, goals and future plans?

Well I think you know my answer by now.

There is tons of internet marketing "How To" infiramtion online. However have you noticed very few people teach you how to organize your information? Well, now you will know.

My marketing timelines include: goals present and future, Action plans for today and tomorrow as well as next month, and last but definitely not least you have a sales tracker as well.

Ok. Now take out a sheet of paper, and for computer lovers, open up your word processing program.

Let's begin with our goal sheet.

Allrepparttar experts finally agreed on something. Writing articles about your eBook can be one ofrepparttar 108374 most successful ways of eMarketing.

However, one ofrepparttar 108375 biggest problems on online is learning how to write a great article. You should not just type any old thing and call it an article.

First, you must put your passion, your personality intorepparttar 108376 article. In addition here are some steps to follow to explode your eBook sales using free articles.

Step 1: Generate an article idea that everyone will want to read about. Review your eBook and look for repparttar 108377 benefits that your eBook provides torepparttar 108378 readers. Make a list of these benefits.

Now, take one benefit at a time and create an article. This will assure you of generating an article idea that people want to read about.

Step 2: Write a simple outline. Once you have your first benefit idea selected. Take another sheet of paper and write a simple outline for that idea. This will give yourepparttar 108379 beginning content for your article. Later we will "fill inrepparttar 108380 blanks" of this simple outline to createrepparttar 108381 article itself.

Step 3: Choose a killer title that will draw attention. This is one ofrepparttar 108382 most important aspects of your article. Without a killer title, your article will be passed over for another.

Now what do I mean killer title? What I mean is a title that has a benefit stated in it and draws peoples attention.

Answer these three questions to help you write that killer title.

1.Doesrepparttar 108383 title draw a reader to take a look?

2.Doesrepparttar 108384 title promise to solve a need for repparttar 108385 reader?

3.Doesrepparttar 108386 title offer specific information?

Another way to start writing killer titles is to write at least 20 to 100 titles for each article to start. Then review other people's article titles. Then review your list and select your best killer title. I will tell you from my own experience thatrepparttar 108387 more titles I write for an article,repparttar 108388 better my title becomes. I have never used any ofrepparttar 108389 first few titles when doingrepparttar 108390 above exercise.

Step 4:

Grab your readers with an attention-grabbing opening sentence. You can use either a statement or a question here. The idea here is to not only grabrepparttar 108391 readers' attention. It's also to keep it.

The best way I have learned to write an attention-grabbing opening sentence is to go online to an article directory and readrepparttar 108392 opening sentences to articles with a similar topic. I then discover which opening sentences are attention-grabbing and which are not.

Once I've done this I find it really easy to get my attention-grabbing sentence out ofrepparttar 108393 way.

Step 5: Staterepparttar 108394 primary purpose ofrepparttar 108395 article by introducing a problem. By looking at your main benefit again you can turn it around into a problem. What is it like withoutrepparttar 108396 benefit? Here it is best to use a statement rather than a question.

If you are having trouble with this step simply write out an answer to this statement: "One ofrepparttar 108397 biggest problems..." Use this to jar your idea centers in your mind. You can also begin your primary purpose statement this way. Look atrepparttar 108398 beginning of this article for an example.

Step 6: Take outrepparttar 108399 sheet of paper that has your outline on it. Now, write two to four sentences for each part of your outline. Imagine for a moment that a 7 year old has asked you about your article. How would you explain it to that child? Great! Now use that in your article.

Most ezine publishers and owners like articles between 400 to 500 words. They also want it formatted to between 60 and 65 characters per line, including spaces.
