Think about the last time you went to a public venue, let's say, the movies. You didn't see anyone carrying their laptop to surf the net on the old outdated website that is collecting dust, no you saw every person sitting in those comfy ass seats, next to their friends, engaging with those same friends on either Instagram or Facebook, didn't you?
Here's another fact, those people that were sitting in those seats, were using social apps to conduct marketing through either video or snapping photos, and once they hit send, their unique HTML links were driving up potential sales.
Ten years ago large business owners and the dot-comers who had the money to invest, purchased insane amounts of web domains that were optimized to drive massive amounts of traffic through SEO, that's how they conducted business, and it worked.
The old saying, "if it's not broke, don't fix it." With the rapid decline in users signing on with outdated, bulky computers, it's safe to say that, "it's broke."
Huge advancements in digital cell phone technology are the reason for the skyrocketing number of social media users online, every second of every day.
Instagram as of April 26th, 2017, has reached 700 Million active users! HUGE, right?
That would be unbelievable to many if we hadn't seen Facebook hit it's 1.92 Billion users worldwide, this year.
Our time as we live it right now is primed to be the greatest time in history to be able to make an income using the least amount of collateral available. Entrepreneurs who have ideas can almost effortlessly fund that idea within a few weeks via their smartphone.
Internet marketing has the ability to reach 100's of millions of people, to tap into those many users, takes timely action, discipline, perseverance and some luck.
If you hack the solution to gaining all this traffic, build me a how-to guide, please.
It's time for entrepreneurs and internet veterans to stop steering newbies toward creating websites for their first stepping stone in becoming an internet entrepreneur. Starting and growing a social media presence should be the main focus right out of the gate.
People are making money online without even owning a website and all from their smartphone, on services like Fiverr, they can log in via app and create videos for clients and send it from their Android.
The day will come when signing up for affiliate sites will no longer require you to have a website, (some users now, create a stand alone website just to have another point of contact and be able to sign up for affiliates) they will approve you based on your social media presence.
As of now affiliate links are approved by most social networks, understand though that if you are using ClickBait Links, most are banned, from Facebook for a fact. The Amazon unique links are not valid on Facebook, but users will use bitly.com or tinyurl to bypass that, and this allows for users to make money online when they have a large following, they share some products and get a commission doing so.
Now, users who have websites will use them to communicate, grab leads, and take advantage of even more dangerously declining email marketing with a professional domain email through Gsuite by Google.
Not all is lost with website traffic and the need for users to know SEO, it's simply time to understand what's going on in the world of the internet. I want you to succeed in your online entrepreneurship, it has never been so easy for a generation to make money selling services, or products, we should all feel fortunate.
The truth is, in order to make it big online it's important to keep up with the changes which means scrapping the old outdated dinosaurs and learning new social skills.
