Combined marketing is a great way to generate more revenue but only if you are prepared and doing it the right way. Here are some mistakes you will want to avoid.
1. Choosing Wrong Products
Any product you choose should provide a solution to the problem your audience has. First choose who your audience is, and then find solutions. Doing otherwise would risk the fact that there is no original audience for that product.
2. Joining Too Many Networks
You can’t make good money with related products if you distribute them too small. Choose just a few networks and work directly with other good brands and managers to ensure the best mix of products for your audience needs.
3. Not Investing in Practical Services
There are many useful products, services and solutions today that can help make your life easier as a partner retailer. Set a budget and invest in your business. You cannot make money without using it, but you want to use it wisely.
4. Not Using Technology to the Full
List of emails, automatic responders, social media, blogs etc … all involve the use of technology. Seek to learn more about each piece of new technology that adds to your business before adding the next one.
5. Not Looking At Your Competitors
Most of the time your competitors do a lot of good things you can learn from. If they succeed, you want to look at them. Buy some of their products and subscribe to lists. Write down what they do right and wrong and make a plan to do better.
6. Thinking You do not need SEO
Search engine optimization is important, no matter what you do. You can use it when filling out a social media profile, guest blog history, and more. It simply means that you are considering search engines (and your audience) for whatever you are doing, both inside and outside of your website.
7. Not Finding Many Ways To Make Money
You don’t want too many products, but on the other hand you don’t want to deal with just one. You need to divide your income by adding more than one product. The trick is to make sure all products are relevant to your target audience.
8. Spending Too Much Time Creating A Sales Pledge
For more products, choose programs that create all the marketing features for you. The reason is that you should not call a marketing strategy, the company should. If they can take the time to create marketing materials for you, it is probably not the product you want to promote.
