The truth and lies about DIGITAL MARKETING

Before posting in this marketing forum, please try to read 10 Step Plan to Promote Your Book: Online Book Marketing on Any Budget. This forum is mainly for followup questions and discussion after reading that book. This forum does indeed allow for much broader discussion of marketing and promotion than just that book, but it's good for everyone to be on the same page about the basics.

Please note, this forum is not for self-promotional plugs. It's for discussing how to promote your book or other writing.

And on top of all that, ensure that our marketing campaigns are reaching the right people! Without that, it's like winking to a blind person. Can't see. Won't know. Won't buy.

I beg to differ about the websites part, having a good website is crucial to your product's success only if the product or service needs it.You website is basically your online footprint and online portfolio for everyone to see. A good website means that the branding is good and good branding deals with people's emotions about buying the product. It's even simple to create a good website and it's not that hard at all even! You can now use sophisticated website builders to create a website easily.

Of course you will waste money and time if you focus on the wrong target market and wrong brand tone and voice for your service or product. A great plan is needed first before execution and your digital marketing won't translate to sales if you just decide to buy paid FB ads or Google ads.

I agree with you. Focusing on one or the other can be overrated. It's a combination of several factors. The right platforms, the right audience, the right marketing tools, high quality products and on top of all that, reviews to back up your claims. It IS a lot of work.

But I believe that if someone niches down properly, coupled with good market research, the rest can be relatively easy.

I wish us all the best!!

Plenty of quality books go unnoticed in favor of inferior offerings simply because an author is more "famous" or already in the public eye for something else.
I know, right? To beat the competition, or at least to be visible, one has to put in a lot of focused work.

This is very true. It's not a one-size fits all kind of a thing. We have to work hard for each item. It calls for a lot of focus, dedication and commitment to learn what works for each product, even if the products seem to be similar!

Hi, thank you for this information. I am planning to start up my own website this year so this is golden information for me as a newbie. Invisible is a powerful way to word this situation!
