My name is Darren Doud, I am an Internet Marketer, trying to go full time. I am an IT guy during the day and a High School football coach by night. I want to go full time in IM so I can focus more time on my family and football. I love doing IM and love to help people succeed in the IM industry.

I got into Online Home Based Business in 2013. I got into it because I knew there was a better way of making a living. There had to be a way to gain my time back. I am slowly seeing how I can accomplish this by being in a Online Home Based Business.

MOBE is short for My Online Business Empire and it’s online business that was developed by our friend Matt Lloyd.  It’s a high ticket affiliate sales program with built in traffic coaches, mentoring, sales teams, phone team, and MUCH more. You can earn 1k, 3k, 5k commissions with MOBE . It’s a revolutionary way of building a business online through the licensing model and duplication model – similar to a franchise model, you acquire the license to run the business which you then only need to duplicate success of other successful business owners by following the exact 21 steps system laid out in your training area. We’re so excited to have found MOBE and are looking for people to partner with us.

 MOBE

Benefits of My Top Tier Business:

  • Personal one-on-one coaching from one of the Top-Tier Business coaches (all who make 6 figures + a year).
  • A dedicated phone team to follow up and call your leads handling the selling for you.
  • Information products to show you exactly what you should be doing step by step to produce results.
  • A fully automated sales funnel- – – You just need to drive traffic!
  • Sell just 5 MOBE licenses a month and get a Mercedes paid for YOU!

The one thing I’ve seen over the years working with my coaching students and building my own online businesses is the fact that so many people struggle to make this business work.

The fact is it actually isn’t that hard, but……most people just don’t know where to start and end up suffering from information overload.

The Shocking Reason Some Businesses are Still Struggling in the Online Marketing

The Shocking Reason Some Businesses are Still Struggling in the Online Marketing

images782AZGM9

Why do you think so many marketers have a hard time cutting through the clutter and reaching more customers online? Take a guess before you read the next line because in a moment I’ll show you some data that might surprise you.

Do you think marketers struggle because they don’t have a social presence? Do you think it’s because their competitors are outranking them? Is it bad content? A poorly designed website?

Or what if it was something that very few marketers are even thinking about? Just take a guess at what the biggest obstacles are, and let’s see what the data says about how close you are…

The Naked Truth About Online Marketing

Go to any authority website or magazine and look for an article on business growth. I bet you my shirt that 99% of them give marketing advice. Everyone seems to think it’s about marketing. Could this be why only 1% of 1% of small businesses ever grow? The data suggests that if you want to grow your business, you might need to look to the internet for more than just marketing.

For starters, did you know that (according to MediaPost), 45% of B2B businesses are now using some kind of automation software, but less than 20% of small businesses have started automation in their marketing?  The study also found that small companies who use automation tools in their marketing are almost 50% MORE likely to report revenue growth.

Think about that one for a moment, are your competitors using automated marketing tools? Are you okay with them having something which you know will increase their sales? Meanwhile, are you trying to increase your sales by using out of date methods and technology?

So if you want to grow your business using the internet, marketing isn’t the only thing you need to consider. You also need the right technology.

That’s not that only paradigm buster either.

Depending on the stats you read, anywhere from 7 to 9 out of ten customers will consult online peer reviews before making a buying decision. Yet only 43% of B2B leaders believe their company could respond to a negative online review or post within 24 hours. More than 10% of companies stated that they don’t doanything to respond to negative comments (source: The Backup List).

Most marketers are obsessed with making sales, while customer service is viewed as an afterthought. But over a trillion dollars which are spent OFFLINE are spent by customers who claim that their decision was “web influenced.” (source: Forrester Research). What are those customers looking for?

Advertisements or peer reviews and high quality information? Do you think your customer service practices impact whether your customers leave positive or negative reviews online?

Do You Know What Your Customers Really Want?

Finally, e-Strategy Trends, reported that while 76% of marketers believe they know what their customers want, only 34% have bothered to ask. Are you starting to see the trends here? Marketers are still applying the same “in your face” direct marketing tactics and thinking that’s the key to business growth.

But the internet has changed the way people make buying decisions. If you want to stand out today, you need to educate your prospective customers, not just market to them. You need to take great care of your existing customers and watch your online reputation like a hawk.

If you’re not doing this, you might be one of the 76% of marketers who assumes that they know what their customers want. If you’re ready to team up with a company who can increase your positive online reputation and your rankings, you need to call MSI right now. Don’t just assume you know what to do. If you’re not growing today, chances are you won’t start growing until something changes.

83 Exceptional Social Media and Marketing Statistics in 2014

83 Exceptional Social Media and Marketing Statistics in 2014

Big data” is one of the trendiest buzzwordy terms in marketing/technology/business today.

So before it gets replaced by the next trendy buzzwordy term, here’s some marketing-related big data for you: 83 valuable facts, stats, and research findings covering strategy, social media, SEO, online advertising, email marketing, content, blogging, social networking, video and more.               B2B-content-creation 

What do 40% of B2B buyers say about LinkedIn, that only 19% say about Twitter? Which “social” brands aren’t really social at all? What do only 48% of searches result in? What do 91% of B2B marketers do, but only 36% do well? (No, not that.) What do 73% of reporters say press releases should contain?

Find the answers to those questions and many, many more here in more than 80 social, content, search, and email marketing facts and statistics from the past few months.
4 Marketing Management and Measurement Stats

1. Just 35% of B2B marketing executives say they can calculate the ROI of their marketing spend most or all of the time. 42% say they can calculate ROI only some of the time, rarely or not at all. (B2B Marketing)

2. While two out of three U.S. CMOs say they feel pressure from the top to prove the value of marketing, just 51% of CEOs agree “that marketing’s financial value is clear to the business.” (MarketingCharts)

3. That’s likely because only 45% of CMOs are confident “that they know which metrics or business outcomes their key stakeholders care about.” (MarketingCharts)

4. “Data analytics are currently most commonly used by B2B marketing leaders to measure and report marketing’s performance (64%), as well as to justify (55%) and allocate (52%) the marketing budget. Analytics are least commonly used to fine-tune the marketing mix (14%).” (MarketingCharts)
4 B2B Marketing Stats

5. Consumerization of B2B marketing? 57% of B2B vendors say they are shifting their B2B commerce transactions from offline to online and self-service, and 44% agree “that B2B commerce is adopting B2C best practices in order to optimize the purchasing experience.” (MarketingCharts)

6. Online sales currently account for about 35% of total revenue for B2B vendors, though that’s higher (41%) among US companies. (MarketingCharts)

7. 40% of B2B buyers say LinkedIn is important when researching technologies and services to purchase; 19% say the same for Twitter. (Social Media Today)

8. B2B buyers today are 70%-90% of the way through their “buying journey” before they reach out to a vendor. (B2B Marketing)

6 Social Media Marketing Stats

9. Social media marketing budgets are projected to double in the next five years. (SocialTimes)

10. The top three social networks used by B2B marketers are LinkedIn (91%); Twitter (85%); and Facebook (81%). However, just 62% of marketers say that LinkedIn is effective, while 50% say the same for Twitter and only 30% of B2B marketers view Facebook as effective. (FlipCreator)

11. This one may surprise you: Google+ actually averages more visits per month than Facebook. Google+ receives 1.2 billion visits per month compared to Facebook’s 809 million. (iMedia Connection)

12. 83% of B2B marketers invest in social media to increase brand exposure; 69% to increase web traffic; and 65% to gain market insights. (Social Media Today)

13. Some brands perceived as social aren’t—at all. As of 2013, Apple had yet to claim a Twitter account, Facebook page, or any other type of social media presence. Ditto for Trader Joe’s. (iMedia Connection)

14. People spend, on average, 4X more time on Tumblr and Pinterest than they do on Twitter. (iMedia Connection)

 

7 SEO and Search Stats

15. Every month there are more than 10.3 billion Google searches, with 78% of U.S. internet users researching products and services online. (B2B Marketing)

16. 54% of B2B buyers begin their buying process with informal research about business problems; nearly 80% of the time spent researching is done line. (B2B Marketing)

17. 33% of organic search clicks go to the first result. (SocialTimes)

18. The top 4 positions, generally those considered to be “above the fold”, receive 83% of first page organic clicks. (Brent Carnduff)

(However, as noted here previously, “a lower position isn’t always bad. If the searcher clicks the ‘back’ button because the top result didn’t meet expectations, then he or she is 5-8 times more likely to click on a lower result than on the initial search.”)

19. It’s also important to consider that only 48% of searches result in an organic click. The remaining 52% result in either a click on a paid ad, leaving the search engine results page without clicking on any listing, or starting a new search. (Brent Carnduff)

20. In addition, as search intent becomes more detailed or specific (long-tail search phrases), the click distribution across the first page organic listings begins to even out, as searchers look for the best match or answer to their query. (Brent Carnduff)

21. And furthermore, long-tail searches have higher overall organic click-through rates. 56% of searches for phrases of four words or more result in a click on an organic result, compared to just 30% for single-word search queries. (Brent Carnduff)
7 Online Advertising Stats

22. Of the three major types of online advertising (search, display, and social), search is viewed as the best channel for driving direct sales, cited by 40% of marketers (vs. 26% who use display to drive sales and 18% using social). However, just over a third of marketers view each channel as valuable for lead generation. (eMarketer)

23. Landing page optimization is viewed as the most important tactic for optimizing the performance of paid search advertising, while targeting by segment is most important in optimizing display ad performance. (eMarketer)

24. 8% of Internet users account for 85% of online display ad clicks. (iMedia Connection)

25. In 2013, Internet advertising expenditures surpassed newspaper ad spending for the first time. Internet ads now account for 21% of all advertising dollars, second only to television at 40%. (Ad Age)

26. Of the 100 largest global advertisers, 41 are headquartered in the U.S., 36 in Europe, and 23 in Asia. Consumer electronics and technology is the fastest-growing ad category among the Global 100. (Ad Age)

27. The average click-through rate (CTR) for online display ads is 0.11% (roughly one click per one thousand views). CTRs aer highest in Malasia (0.30%) and Singapore (0.19%), and lowest in Australia and the U.K. (both at 0.07%). (Smart Insights)

28. Among different display ad formats, large rectangle ads (336 x 280 pixels) generate the highest CTRs on average at 0.21-0.33%, while full banners (468 x 6) generate the lowest at 0.04%. (Smart Insights)

 

3 Email Marketing Stats

29. Mobile matters. A lot. In 2013, 62% of emails were opened on a mobile device (48% on smartphones and 14% on tablets). (Heidi Cohen)

30. Adding social sharing buttons to email messages an increase click-through rates by more than 150%. (SocialTimes)

14 Content Marketing Facts and Stats

33. Still, more than 70% of both B2B and B2C marketers plan to produce more content in 2014 than they did in 2013, and six out of ten plan to increase their content marketing budgets. (e-Strategy Trends)

34. 78% of CMOs believe custom content is the future of marketing. It’s not clear what the other 22% are thinking. (SocialTimes)

35. Customer testimonials are the most effective form of content marketing. (SocialTimes)

36. The top challenge for content marketers is “lack of time,’ according to 57% of B2C and 69% of B2B marketers (multiple responses permitted). (e-Strategy Trends)

37. When forced to choose only one “top challenge” in content marketing, 30% of marketers said “not enough time”; 11% said “producing enough content”; and another 11% said it was “producing engaging content.” (@Robert_Rose on SlideShare)

38. Content creation is taking an increasing share of marketing budgets. Nearly half of marketers devote at least 10% of their total budgets to content development. One in five spend 25% or more. (eMarketer)
