Online Marketing Made Simple
Online marketing made simple? Well, first you need to be aware that “simple” and “easy” are two different things. Online market may not be “easy,” but, it IS simple.
My story is one of the great American success stories that we all love to hear. I was stuck in a job that I didn’t like and I needed to find a way out. The internet seemed to be a vehicle that made some sense and I could market online in my “spare” time [I did have to give up golf for a while]. But, how? That was the question.
Well, I began with the end in mind and decided to apply a simple philosophy to create a powerful culture – I set out to create a free, no-strings-attached, fitness and nutrition resource that would further the goal of reversing the obesity trend. I didn’t set out to make money and I’ve never required anyone to buy anything to get my help. I set out to create something of value to people. Since January 2009, without any paid advertising, this blog has received 2,115,944 hits. Something here resonates with people and they find value in it.
I believe in something more simple than even my starting point for the blog. I believe that people are compensated in direct correlation to the value they bring to any given marketplace. That’s why I didn’t set out to make money. People don’t care about that. Instead, I set out to create art and just trusted that my philosophy would work. Along the way, we would make lifelong friends and my wife, Monica, and I would make over one million dollars with Team Beachbody in just five years, becoming just the 13th coach business to do so.
I’ve learned that online marketing really is simple…but, it isn’t easy. This morning, I read an incredible blog post by author Seth Godin and I wanted to share it here. If you want to be successful in this realm, I highly suggest that you subscribe to Seth’s blog and adopt his simple and effective philosophy.
I assure you that being a Beachbody Coach is legitimate, reputable, honorable, and fun way to make money online. So, in the interest of online marketing made simple, I highly encourage you to start poking around at this incredible opportunity IF you’re willing to be committed and focused. Maybe you can be yet another great American success story.
