Dialogue opens doors for your online business

One of the best bloggers I know in Internet Marketing is Yaro Starak. And one thing I’ve learned from visiting Yaro’s blog is that he presents himself in an interactive fashion – by which I mean, he invites the reader to come in and comment and ask questions. He likes to interview people, for instance, and through his interviewees he provides tips on what makes for good blogging (or marketing) as well as promoting his own blogging course.

Of course it takes time to build up a readership of any kind, longer still to build up a loyal readership. You have to be consistent. If not persistent. You also have to come across as someone who is genuinely interested in having a dialogue with his readers. No one is all that real to us until we engage in a dialogue.

I write reviews on my blog, but I don’t consider it a review site, or merely an information centre, a depository of free internet marketing tips. I would hope it serves as a medium through which you, the reader, can gain more than mere information.

How often have you said about a movie, “I didn’t care for the characters, so I switched it off.” The older you get, the less impressed you are by mere cleverness – you want character, warmth, kindness, generosity… or else why spend time with this person?

But it’s also partly up to you…

What do I mean?

Be an interactive reader

Well, the more you interact with me, the better your experience in coming here. By engaging me in a dialogue I will get to know you, consider you and possibly throw you a favour or two. And hopefully we get into something we’d call – loosely speaking – a relationship.

So tell me what you’d like to see more of here. Ask me what I think… A guy I was doing an ad swap with asked me for my opinion on his squeeze page today. I said, Well, I think there’s too much yellow highlighter everywhere (looks a bit like a traffic hazard!) and the copy could be cut down 20%, the headline 4 words shorter. He didn’t have to agree with me, but hopefully he appreciated the feedback. The point is, we’d made a connection that was instantly more real than it had been at the point we’d agreed merely to do an ad swap. Now I’ll remember him and he’ll remember me. That could count for something in the future.

Dialogue (with a blogger you like) can make the difference between a mere (good) read and opening a door that could lead to an opportunity.

I reply to all my (relevant) comments, so let’s hear them. Meantime, you may find this FREE ebook of use in your own blogging.

How not to market online

When you’re completely new to IM, you just want to get out there and start selling, right? You’ve been told to take action, so you want to broadcast to everyone, Here’s me, I’ve got a great product or sysem!

The thing is, no one gives a shit. And if you paste/pitch your products on Forums and Facebook, people actually think worse of you. I know it sucks – wouldn’t it be so much easier if that’s all you had to do? – but once you’ve been online for a while, you’ll be feeling exactly the same. It’s just kind of vulgar and naff.

So the first thing to learn is patience. Put your time into working at something that will attract and help people, and build yourself a real business.

Credibility is ESSENTIAL for long term business and profits. You have to interact and generally appear as though you are interested first in helping people, and second, making money. You have to convince people that you deserve being paid. And then it’ll start coming in.

The only person going to buy from you when you shout your wares in a forum or on FB is another newbie, as desperate or more so, than you. True, there are more newbies joining every day, but if you are only targeting ‘virgins’ you are unlikely to develop any lasting business relationships that provide you with a sustainable source of income.

Making Money Online involves creating a BUSINESS. Only businesses make money – and businesses are all about solving problems for people.

Whatever niche you are targeting always ask the question, ‘What do they need and how can I help?’ Provide a tangible answer to that and you’re in BUSINESS.
