3 Core Marketing Principles

There are certain fundamental principles in marketing that don’t change, no matter what you market, who you market to or what media you use. When we focus on the nuts and bolts of our particular marketing efforts – optimizing content, writing sales-copy, creating e-mail follow-ups etc. – it’s easy to get lost in details and forget about what really matters.

Here’s a short video, detailing what I believe are three of the most important, core marketing principles that can help you get more sales, more clicks, better conversions, or whatever it is that you are aiming for. What’s more, you can apply these principles straight away and test them out for yourself in the very next piece of content you create.

Value Based Business

This is a quick post to define the kind of business model I most frequently refer to in posts, videos and podcast episodes.

We can call this business model a “value based business”, although that’s not the only term I use. When I talk about “product and service based businesses”, I’m referring to the same thing.

Video Introduction: How to Make Money Online

How long have you been in the Internet marketing game? Can you remember what it was like when you first started out? For me, it wasn’t too long ago that I was completely oblivious to this whole “make money online” world. I already had experience with offline businesses and I even had two ecommerce/online shop sites, but I was totally clueless about everything that relates to Internet marketing as we know it. I didn’t know the first thing about search engines, I didn’t know about blogging or WordPress, I didn’t know how to create a website or even a simple web-page, I didn’t know about hosting and domains and affiliate programs or anything like that.

As I was thinking abou this, I decided to make a video containing as much useful and essential information about making money online as possible, aimed at a complete beginner (basically me, a year ago). I wanted to keep it short and to the point (attention spans are short, these days), so there could only be a very limited amount of information in the video. I had to cut it down to what I believe are the most important things a newbie needs to hear.

Here’s the result and I’d love to know what you think about it:

Don’t worry, though. This is still RQR and therefore still a hype-free zone. Video may not be quite what you expect, however…

Affiliate marketing is an attractive business model, although the real reasons for this are rarely stated. They tend to get drowned out by all the hype. Contrary to what your average sales-pitch would have you believe, affiliate marketing isn’t super-easy and it very rarely, if ever, makes anyone rich over night. It also involves actual work, actual investments and actual effort. Just like a “real” business. Go figure. In spite of all this, there are still many reasons to love affiliate marketing. The foremost can be summarized in just one word: Scalability.
