Internet Marketing Tips – Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Believe me when I say this, because I am speaking from experience. The only way to take your marketing to the next level is to get out of your comfort zone…whatever that may be. In this article, I am going to show you a few ways to do just that. Because everybody is going to be at a different stage in their development, the specifics may not apply to you, but the general idea will. So sit back and relax…because this may be the last chance you get to do that.
When we market online, we fall into ruts, or comfort zones. In other words, we begin to do something, whatever it is, and when we see it works well, we decide to just stay the course with that one tactic and not try anything else. By staying in our comfort zone, we don’t have to worry about failure. It’s a safe place. However, the problem with safe places is that there is usually nowhere to go once you’ve entrenched yourself in that safe place. So how do you get yourself out of that comfort zone?
Well, let’s say you’re using AdWords as a form of advertising and it’s working for you. You’ve targeted a few decent keywords and you’re making a steady income with whatever product you’re selling. But you’re not exactly lighting the world on fire You could do several things to get out of that comfort zone. You could try to target additional keywords. Maybe take a chance with another product related to your niche and give that a go. You could try brand new forms of advertising altogether, such as article writing or solo ezine ads. Just doing any one of these things will bring you out of your comfort zone because you’re doing something you’ve never done before, and it’s darn right scary.
What about the products you sell? Maybe you’re just doing affiliate marketing selling other people’s products because you’re afraid that you can’t create a product good enough to sell on your own. Well, that’s another way of getting out of your comfort zone. Certainly you have to have some interests that you could put into an ebook or even a DVD course or set of videos. That’s another way of getting out of your comfort zone. What if all the products you’ve created were JUST ebooks because you didn’t think you sounded good on a video? This might be the time to start cranking out a few of them. Yes, it will be scary at first, but imagine if you find out that you’re actually good at it.
The point is, you cannot grow as a marketer or as a person if you stay in your comfort zone. Again, I am speaking from experience. It wasn’t until I got out of mine that I started to really have success online.
And you can too.
Just do something different…It’s not as scary as you think.
To YOUR Success,
