Welcome to the Part 2 of my Online Marketing Consultant Guide. If you haven’t read the introduction please do so Online Marketing Consulting Guide – Introduction so you know exactly what this is about.
In this post I wanted to ask you a few questions before you plan to dive into this world on Online Marketing Consultancy. As I’ve seen many people enter this industry only to leave after few weeks disappointed and claiming that the methods don’t work. That’s why I have prepared few very basic questions that you must ask yourself before you decide to make Internet Marketing Consultancy your business.
The questions are:
- Are You Willing To Take Action & Work For Several Weeks If Not Months To Build Yourself As A Brand Before You Get Clients?
- Are You Willing To LEARN, LEARN & LEARN To Give The Best Service To Your Clients?
- Are You Willing To Take In The B.S. Given By Clients Every Now and Then?
- Is This A Full Time Business Option Or You’re Just Looking For Some Fast Cash?
- Do You Have The TIME To Build This Business?
These are the basic questions that you must answer before you finally decide to dive into this world. Below I have explained these questions and exactly what you need to ask yourself.
Are You Willing To Take Action & Work For Several Weeks If Not Months To Build Yourself As A Brand Before You Get Clients?
You must be willing to take serious action and work on a strategy if you want to succeed because if you don’t have the will to work towards your goal you can never succeed. The main work initially is building yourself and your company as a brand and getting clients. But for getting clients you must have a good brand around yourself because no one will hand you the keys to their online business presence if they don’t trust you and don’t regard you as an authority. Building that authority takes time but I’ll guide on how you can build considerable amount of authority enough to get the initial clients rolling then after that its almost keep growing by itself.
Are You Willing To LEARN, LEARN & LEARN To Give The Best Service To Your Clients?
If you don’t offer good service you won’t retain any clients and it would make it extremely difficult to get new clients with a bad reputation. To offer the best services you need to be the best. How you can become the best? Fortunately Online Marketing has lots of good blogs and websites where you can find a wealth of great information to help you upgrade your skills. With Online Marketing you have to keep learning, even when you have a good running business you’ll have to be in a mindset of learning where you’ll be visiting blogs and websites daily to read for any new changes or developments within the field which might affect your clients in anyway.
Are You Willing To Take In The B.S. Given By Clients Every Now and Then?
When you have a good number of clients there are chances you’ll have some of them who are very picky and would unnecessarily raise conflicts, as a business owner you’ll have to deal with them with patience as they are clients and you have to make sure your brand name doesn’t get ruined because of a few clients. So you need to be mentally ready to listen to these clients and try to help them and resolve conflicts.
Is This A Full Time Business Option Or You’re Just Looking For Some Fast Cash?
Seriously if you are in it for some fast cash, you’re knocking on the wrong door. Online Marketing Consultancy can pay really well but it takes time and effort to build and sustain. There’s a lot of work involved but if you can put in the effort the result at the end is great. Only enter this field if you are looking for a solid business not some online gig.
Do You Have The TIME To Build This Business?
If you are in a hurry then succeeding in Online Marketing Consultancy would be quite tricky as its like a business and like all businesses it take time to build and grow. I’ve seen Online Marketing Consultancies grow big in less then 6 months but sometimes it takes longer it all depends where you live, what services you are providing and how much you are charging. But what I can assure you is that I’ve rarely seen a Good, Solidly Planned & Executed Online Marketing Consultancy business plan fail. If you try hard and put in your efforts you’ll surely succeed and at the end of the road you’ll be thinking it was too easy for all that I have gained.
