Marketing online involves a certain mindset. Online entrepreneurs understand the difference between wanting and doing. Wanting to make money online to be your own boss is what everyone wants. Understanding the deep commitment, dedication, education, meticulous planning and the maintenance of a positive attitude is the reality of the online marketing mindset.
Conceivably you have received an email or read an article about becoming your own boss, quitting your day job, eating cheerios every morning with your children and commuting to your home office in your slippers. It’s a pretty picture and chances are a highly paid copywriter painted it for you. But, ask yourself this. What kind of time, effort, planning, thought and action did it take for that marketer to get this pretty picture in front of you?
The conception of an idea to the implementation stage of a fully functional campaign consists of a measurable amount of preliminary planning, strategic thinking and testing to launch that online marketing information before it found its way to you.
Ask yourself do you have a marketing mindset?
· Are you someone who loves learning new skills
· Are you willing to be a student for life
· Do you enjoy testing and working with data
· Can you express yourself writing
· Do you welcome challenges
· Do you see mistakes in a positive way
· Are you dedicated to projects, implementation and following through
· Are you a problem solver
· Do you like technology and systemizing
Marketing online is a very creative, worthwhile and fulfilling journey with the right mindset. But be honest with yourself to avoid any pitfalls that may stand in your way. Pinpoint areas of your mindset that need improvement and really make an effort to expand your awareness, educate yourself and then dedicate time for self improvement. Sincerely work to becoming that person you envision yourself being. Practice visualization techniques.
Developing a strong mindset will lead to a financially successful career as an online marketer. Develop your mindset by surrounding yourself with whatever it takes to create and fuel your passion. For example you may enjoy watching interviews of successful entrepreneurs and following their example, reading books, immersion learning or attending motivational or educational workshops.
A very perceptive marketer once told me that my marketing mindset would be the single most important element in setting the stage for what would happen in my business. I know that this is true.
