Internet Marketing: The Golden Key to Success is in Your Hands, But You Ignore It!

Success is the Blue Bird everybody is chasing, struggling to catch, but only a few people have been able to grab it!

Most probably, you have been one of the hard chasers,
extremely busy writing ad copies, articles, press releases, sending them to media outlets and popular publications, striving night and day to promote your business using the most powerful Internet marketing strategies.
You have subscribed to hundreds of safe mailing lists, ezines, newsletters, sent your ads and articles to them regularly, spending your valuable hours and days. But the response was disappointing.

Then you tried to hire advertising agencies to make the
effective e-mail advertising for you. You paid them a lot
of money.

Finally you made a number of sales. But the results were
far from being satisfying. The money you made did not
even cover the expenses.

Then you wrote articles, you hired copywriters to write
more articles and press releases for you and you sent
them out to thousands of media outlets and thousands
of popular publications. To your surprise, the profits you
earned were not enough to pay the bills. You wonder why!

You have launched several weblogs (blogs), now you’re working hard to place fresh content in your blogs everyday or every other day, while submitting your blogs, comments, content to other blogs, which take a great deal of time, but you have not received one single visitor to your blogs yet. You don’t know why!

You have purchased an aggregator to read the RSS feeds
you were receiving, you also bought a software to turn
your articles and press releases into XML and RSS formats before sending them to RSS feed providers and distributors, e-zines, newsletters, news portals, blogs/journals, media outlets and relevant publications.

So, you’re spending a lot of money, time and efforts,
struggling like mad to market your business, website, blogs using the most powerful Internet marketing strategies, hoping to make your business a success to earn you a comfortable living.

After so much struggle, tears and sweat, are you happy and satisfied with the results you are getting now? No, most probably you are not!

How do I know? I know, because I had been there, too, until I discovered what was missing. Then I also discovered what the solution was. There is one thing you must do; there is one thing you and I and everybody must do to earn more money. Do it now, do it everyday until the end of your life:

READ !!

You are extremely busy submitting your ads, your articles,
your press releases night and day, but you do not read
other submissions.

You might say you do read some ads and articles when
you find time to read. But I’m sure you find time to read
only once in a while, because you’re too busy writing ads,
articles, press releases and submitting them to millions
of places every day. You are an extremely busy marketer.

All other marketers and business owners are too busy to
spare time to read. So, eventually you don’t read other
marketer’s articles and ads, and they don’t read yours. Or,
you all read only once in a while, which is obviously not
enough to produce the positive results to make you happy.

Then what’s the use to work so hard to write articles, press releases, ads, RSS feeds and more, and struggle so hard to post them to millions of portals, websites, media and publications, if nobody or only a few people would read them?

It’s a great waste of time, efforts and money! Of course, there are businesses and individuals who earn truck loads of money, but it’s only a small percentage in a crowd of millions of income seekers.

I am sure that the number of big money makers will grow fast when we learn how to play the game abiding by its rules.

We must admit that we need a great number of audience to read our ads, articles and other content in order to receive the great response we expect.

The great number of audience we need to earn more money is composed of you and I and other online business owners and opportunity seekers.

We can earn more money when our ads and content are read by more people who are our potential customers.

So, you and I and all others must read as much articles, ads, press releases, RSS feeds as we can. There is a simple solution for all income seekers to earn more money, which is a one small magic word.

READ !!

Don’t just write and submit, but read, too.

Read and encourage your friends, members, affiliates,
associates, customers, potential customers to read!

If you and all other millions of marketers and income seekers spare one our a day to promote their businesses, they must spare another hour to read. Reading must be considered as the important part of Internet marketing.

If we all build a reading habit, if we all include serious reading in our daily marketing program, if we all perceive reading as an important part of marketing, we all could be sure that our ads articles, RSS feeds and other promotions will be read by thousands of more potential customers daily, which will substantially increase the number of our sales, revenues, profits, and ROI (return on investment).

We learn the most powerful Internet marketing tactics and secrets by reading. We find out about new opportunities, new technology, new powerful ways in effective Internet marketing, The benefits we get from reading articles written by other entrepreneurs are unlimited.

ignored. Never!
