If you would like to know how to succeed in e-business. here are some basic tips to follow I recently came across some young entrepreneur that wants to be successful in online business but due to their lack of experience of what online business marketing is all about. They will seem to loose hope in the long run. Not that they cannot do it, but it’s because of lack of experience in an online business marketing strategy however, the message I was putting across is timeless.
We live in a competitive, consumer-oriented society.
1. competitive as related to online business marketing
There are usually, hundreds, thousands, if not millions, of people constantly competing with us, if we are business-owners, self-employed, or employed and are trying to sell a product and/or service. We may, or may not, be aware of this, however, we cannot ignore this fact if we wish to succeed in our business. The success-to-failure rates, for example, of start-ups, are proof to this. Only a small percentage of start-up businesses, succeed. Those businesses that succeed are aware of this principle and apply it daily and therefore, have an immediate advantage over their competition.
2. consumer-oriented as related to online business marketing.
People are constantly programmed to be in a consumer, get state-of-mind. In other words, how much can I get; what can I get and when can I get it.
The message I am conveying to you is; even though we are living in a western-based, consumer-oriented society, which programmed us to constantly want and in turn get products and/or services; to truly be successful in our business and fulfilled in our daily lives, we need to focus on giving rather than on getting, that way we will fulfil our needs and the needs of others and not, merely, our wants for things in our daily lives that, most of the time, we don’t need anyway.
The main principle, or message, that the blog on was conveying, was that of adding value.
This principle to me, is of utmost importance if one wants to be successful in any business. Many businesses fail because they add very little, if any value at all, to the customer. Most of these businesses are only in it for the money and are constantly looking to get, without giving much value, if any, back in return and they still wonder why they fail.
If you focus your online business on adding value to your customers, you will be well on your way to becoming successful and a Wealth Creator. There is a need to stay motivated for online business owners, and all social media such as telegram, whatsapp can also be used to market your business online.
A principle that constantly proves successful and almost always guarantees success
