One of the reasons many Internet marketers fail is not because they aren’t applying the right tactics, but because they are forgetting the basics. There are so many aspects of online marketing that are downright silly-simple – so people don’t take advantage of them; just one example of this is article marketing. Today we’ll backtrack a little bit and talk about several internet marketing tips with a view on the power of the basics.

If you’ve been involved with IM for a while, hopefully you’re aware of methods to create traffic. A lack of traffic that is targeted to your market is one of the most common reasons for lack of sales. Search marketing, or ranking high enough to receive traffic, is perhaps one of the most popular and attractive methods of driving traffic. It’s a worthwhile endeavor to shoot for whatever your keyword phrases are and try to rank highly. This is why you shouldn’t avoid search engine optimization and instead focus a good amount of your time and energy on it. Of course there is a learning curve and it requires work, but it’s not like you’re designing a space shuttle, either.

While we would not necessarily recommend it – there are probably millions of businesses who solely depend on search marketing for traffic. However you do need to be prepared to spend time, money, lots of effort and hard work to get there. As you should know, if you’re doing IM, the keyword phrases you use on your sites are critically important to your success. If you persist in your efforts, then it’s completely possible that you will never have to buy advertising again. What is so attractive about search traffic is that if you play your cards right, you can be set for a very long time.

When a person decides to make a purchase on the Internet, there are a thousand things running through his/her head about the security of that particular purchase. Before they even submit their credit info to buy from you, they want to be sure that they won’t be scammed. With so many scam artists operating online, people want to be sure they are dealing with someone ethical and reliable. Additionally, many products don’t live up to the hype and end up disappointing people. That’s why it’s important to offer a prompt refund to anyone who requests it.

You have to consider the principles of psychology, which cause people to feel more secure when they know they aren’t risking anything they can’t get back. People are much more likely to buy from you after you’ve assured them that they aren’t taking any real risk.

If you do things decently, there’s a lot to be said for online surveys in order to find out what your market audience wants. Sometimes you can spot emerging trends, or new areas of interest and desire in your market. The quality of your survey results will depend to a large extent on the questions you ask and how you word them.

Just like any other business out there, success in internet marketing requires hard work and dedication. Always keep learning no matter what, but most importantly do take action every day – do something!
