Greetings! My online marketing experience is…
Beginner level- and that’s being generous. Being 41 and not very experienced with using the power of online marketing tools, email platforms, blogging, social media, etc. can put a professional at quite a disadvantage.
For that very reason, I am writing to anyone that feels the same way I do. I’d like to share the 3 tools I use to market along with two skills that I continue to fumble through as I learn.
Websites – Every company or person promoting a product, service, charity, awareness, or anything like this needs a website.
There is no way around this these days.
Cold calling people is just rude, so… how do you reach out?
Tool #1 Studiopress
Yes – Studiopress. This platform allows you to build a site that ranks well on the internet. It is easy relative to other platforms to build your site with one of its themes.
- State of the art code and smart design architecture mean search engines see your content.
- Offers an array of beautiful themes for your content that are HTML compatible and mobile responsive.
- Genesis makes customizing your site easy, but without bloated code that slows down your site.
- Unlimited support. Unlimited updates. Unlimited websites. One low price = support, updates & domains.
Tool #2 LeadPages
LeadPages is a powerful tool to learn how to use. This program allows you to
- Create landing pages that can grow your email list for marketing
- Sell your products or services right off of a page you build
- Generate new customer leads for your business – The lifeblood we all need to be successful!
- You can share these pages on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc.
Tool #3 MailChimp
This was a good find for me and will be for you as well. When you are starting out you need all of the help you can get. check this offer out
Up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month – Free!!
Yup. You can send emails to up to 2,000 subscribers for free. This was so great because I could fumble through learning how to send an email out to a list of customers or an article with valuable information.
I have included the website below for you.
Here’s my biggest takeaway so far from doing this online stuff. The more you practice, the easier it gets. It used to take me hours to write something this basic. Now it takes me 30-40 minutes. I’ll get even better as time goes on.
To your success –
