How to Organize Your Internet Marketing Business
It’s really not hard to make money with internet marketing. You really can do it almost without thinking once you have the right system in place. But it does take time to get to the point where you have a functional system working for you. This will not happen within 24 hours, though.
You probably realize there is much more to internet marketing than merely deciding you’re going to do it. You need to treat this the way you would treat any other business: organize it first and work on it second. Keep reading to find out some great organizational hints to make your online business a little smoother and less painful.
If you’re just starting out, you’ll see so many cool tools and s/w programs that all promise to make life easier for you. You will come across some tools, like Quicken for example, which are just regular tools, but Quicken is quite a valuable tool. But then you’ll see other products such as fancy keyword tools, and they aren’t so critical to have at the moment.
So just create a system of folders for all the various s/w programs you’d like to try eventually. Organize the folders for things like: e-mail software, accounting software, keyword tools, spinners, etc. Then just store your downloads in your folders and check them out later. You may forget you’ve tried something, but didn’t like it, if you keep notes of what you took for a spin, but didn’t like it.
Be sure to get your emails organized.
It isn’t really needed to get overly complicated with this, though. Just make a folder for each client you have, then just put the appropriate emails in the folders. If you do this, you’ll find that the only emails remaining in your inbox are those that you have not tended to, yet. Also, year-based folders can reveal data for each client and the amount of business you had.
Create a daily and weekly schedule that is doable.
It’s best to plan in larger blocks of time because you have a better chance of getting your work done. Your schedule can be as simple as: mornings = marketing work, afternoons = project work. This practice will help develop a habit of doing work while ignoring any distractions. If you avoid thinking about what you want to work on, you’ll probably end-up doing nothing. You’ll see more revenue the more you put into getting your business organized. Your business will become more efficient, no doubt, and you won’t waste any time unnecessarily. If you take the time to build organization in your business, you’ll be able to keep a closer eye on everything.
