In this Digital Media frenzy we live in these days, we can’t mistake the intense pace of revolution that is changing the face of the planet, as we know it.
Internet Marketing is basically this,
A worldly method to share business ideas and concepts that people,
can educate and build relationships with each other
built around depth and “NOW” information that is useful.
In the 1990’s, a digital marketer was described as an individual that would market or sell digital type products such as,
cameras, televisions or computers to businesses for a commission.
Even them silly calculator watches or the Electric Face Mask were considered digital technology.
From smartphones, tablets, to an endless number of softwares to use change is inedible, almost by the minute.
Recent business trends steer toward building quality content regularly, mingling on social media, or just connecting with people on a personal level.business are rapidly changing as the sun sets daily.
Businesses are rapidly changing as the sun sets daily.
Digital Marketer, Internet Marketer or even Online Marketer, they are all considered the same niche, if you would.
not all teach the same tactics or ethics that really makes a difference virtually.
It’s easy to hide behind a bunch of email addresses or profiles so beware of who or what you’re getting yourself into.
Do your research first….

No, it doesn’t start with simple stupid software’s, easy button banana’s or my favorite,
“Blasting my back links with your back links”.
The audience is there, we need to start with the fundamentals of the skills and practices of managing a successful business online.
Where Marketing Meets The Internet Face First
In the most formative generation, the world has ever seen, writing good old fashion fruitful data would be a respectable place to begin.
Create your own blog and share your insightful knowledge about your business or service with the two billion online and counting.
Nobody’s perfect here unless your last name starts with Christ, so mistakes will happen, it’s inevitable.
We need to get this process of growing and learning how to build, manage our professional presence online,
in the long run, that’s going to better ourselves and our business opportunities.
I have heard most of the successful entrepreneurs and business persona’s alike speak of making all kind of foolish mistakes at the beginning.
Only to realize later that, these mistakes truly help you flourish on doing and driving to succeed within your business industry.
In this Forbes article, the speaker is Richard Branson of Virgin Group.
The guy owns his own island, so that’s good enough for me to listen and take heed.
Expertise just doesn’t cut it anymore, curiosity is what moves people.
Individuals that want to thrive in the “what’s happening NOW” era tasting change, craving to expand ideas and driving to inspire folks.
If this style of marketing doesn’t fit the bill for your business, you won’t be effective or successful at anything, wasting everyone’s time and money in the process.
You’re just not relevant if your battling reality all the time.
Tools For A Virtual Landscape
Simple, essential and affordable is what I focus on when making my decisions about choosing virtual tools of the trade.
We, as humans, seem to make things a little difficult on ourselves when choosing platforms to build our presence online with.
Here are the most amazing elements that are concrete by nature to start establishing your presence:
Authority or Niche Website to build a foundation of useful content
Content Management Platform or WordPress…. Ah, this part is free.
S.E.O. Policies and restrictions….simple and fun, for everyone.
Autoresponder for Email marketing….80% Of ALL income will come from emails.
Social Media Platforms…. social media sharing like real humans.
Well written value-driven content that literally kicks ass….Any questions?….
Video creation that really personalize your brand.
As I recorded the most recent, the list grows and grows, reinventing itself every few years.
Digital Marketing With MudChopsMedia
When I started out online, I noticed that the majority of individuals were struggling in accomplishing any kind of business momentum online, myself included.
First, you had all this “hype” or “quick income” software’s or services that literally liters up the virtual data highway, on regular bases.
From crappy e-books from the dial-up days, or training that’s more glamor “happy” then glorious, please pay attention to what your purchasing and who’s it from.
It takes two seconds to Google someone’s name or product, don’t forget that…..
I think from the beginning, we get so caught up in this myth that quick, easy, 28,000$ in a week, kind of money is made daily online and it truly doesn’t exist.
Unless you have a ten to twenty thousand dollar advertising budget it just won’t happen, I promise.
Don’t feel bad cause I too, got caught up in chasing rainbows that lead to shovels and shovels of loot somewhere online.
Well, all the gimmicks and shenanigans that the internet can bring you, stops here and now.
