Do you know what the 3 biggest online marketing barriers are that are in the way of most entrepreneurs finding success?
If you're a business owner or entrepreneur looking to get past these online marketing barriers and push on to success using the right online marketing tools for you, then invest a few minutes to read this right now.
Barrier #1: Failing to make the time to create a plan
This is a barrier because most entrepreneurs think they don't have time to get everything done, so they prioritize, often putting the easy things first, rather than the important things.
When you don't take the time to sit back and look at the big picture, and the create a plan, you can easily get caught up in dead end online marketing tasks which don't really move your business forward.
You get around this by investing a little time in assessing your overall business and goals, and understanding what marketing efforts will help you achieve those goals. Then you simply map out what to do and when to do it based on its appropriateness to your business.
If you've already gone down the path of marketing without a plan, don't worry… all is not lost. You actually have the advantage of knowing what works, where you've wasted time, and can now add that knowledge to whatever plan you end up putting together.
Barrier #2: Not committing to invest the time or money for marketing
It's vital to understand that marketing, just like most things in business and in life, requires either time or money to get it done.
By not making a commitment to invest in your business using either of these resources, you are pretty much forgoing any marketing at all.
So it's vital to recognize that when you put something in, you are doing it in order to get something back out. Make an investment of a dollar in order to realize two. Put in an hour in order to build a business that will give you back a week.
This is an easy block to overcome. The benefits don't usually come overnight, but by putting in the consistent commitment to market (using either time or money) you'll be certain to benefit in the end.
Barrier #3: Failing to take action
This is a big barrier for many entrepreneurs. Actually, we should call them dreamers, not entrepreneurs.
When you don't take action, nothing happens. It's a chronic problem, but one you can get around. How? By taking an imperfect first step, making mistakes, and learning from them. It doesn't matter if you start with social media or video marketing or blogging. Just start!
