Top 5 Internet Marketing Strategies For 2018 – Digital Marketing Strategy For Online Entrepreneurs

Is your Internet marketing strategy setting you up for failure? digital marketing in 2018 requires you to give more value across more platforms than ever before… Get this wrong and your online business will fail. Get this right in your online business will flourish.

the Internet marketing strategies covered in this video contain content marketing strategies and paid advertising strategies including Facebook ads.

The first three Internet marketing strategies include content marketing on YouTube, through a podcast, or the written word on a WordPress blog. These three core content marketing strategies make up the three pillar strategy I’ve taught in this video:

First, you are required to create your core strategy which is your method of initiating content. for example, if you are a writer and you enjoy writing… Starting off with a WordPress blog and the written word is key!

For me, I hate writing… So I chose YouTube to originate my content!

Creating your content marketing based on your strengths and the type of media you enjoy producing content on most is the number one key to success with Internet marketing!

once you have habituated the process of creating content with your main initiation method, you can actually syndicate that content to the additional to marketing pillars as explained in this video:

The fourth marketing strategy is the ad and funnel strategy… This strategy costs money and has more pressure to optimize in a shorter period of time. I believe you need to have thousands of dollars, potentially $2000-$5000 available to invest in the idea before ever expecting to see a decent return.

Some people take longer and it can cost tens of thousands of dollars, some people figure it out sooner… The quality of your offer, how skilled a copywriter you are and your experiences in sales all can help shorten the learning curve here.

the fifth marketing strategy is to leverage Kindle. I don’t expect to “earn my income” from the sales my Kindle books, they are more of a lead generation system. My wife and I have distributed over 50,000 Kindle books and the number of leads and customers we have generated through our funnels with our Kindle books is amazing!

Also, some of the highest quality traffic we receive comes from Kindle because Kindle users often our customers and there’s leveraged credibility from Amazon for us. These people have consumer content, purchased a product of ours before they ever enter our funnel… This increases the likelihood of them taking action on the offers we present throughout her funnel.

Regardless of which method you take, you will need to have a sales funnel built… I show you how to set up your own sales funnel in this video here:

A final, important note… The goal for you is not to move forward with all five strategies at the same time. You start with one and you gain mastery of one method first.

Then you start to syndicate your content on the next most logical strategy. If you have written 200 blog posts, you may be able to create a Kindle book very easily with that same written content.

If you are recording podcast interviews, it is very easy to create YouTube videos based on those audio files.

    Wow… recorded this video with the wrong microphone! lol. So this is what the default Lenovo laptop microphone sounds like… bleh. #NoteToSelf be sure fancy mic is set when recording.

    1. BeginnerBusinessmen

      lol, I’ll keep that in mind for today’s video: I just received my Shure iPhone mic, Thanks for the recommendation!!!

    2. RentVandH2O

      I didn’t even notice (or care) which mic you used 🙂

    3. Miles Beckler

      +RentVandH2O Glad it wasn’t an issue… lol. made me cringe a bit.

    4. Miles Beckler

      +BeginnerBusinessmen that mic is AWESOME!

    5. RentVandH2O

      I know. It’s easy to get lost in the details of sound and lights. In reality as long as the message comes across loud and clear nobody will complain. At least i won’t 😉 Cheers Miles

  3. Dave LaFreniere

    It’s all good! Thanks again!

  4. Kailey Walker

    Really loving your videos lately thanks for all the valuable info without all the added BS. I would love to see an in depth video on the Amazon/Kindle books. I think a recipe ebook would be a good addition to the blog I’m operating in a sub-category of the health food niche.

    1. Miles Beckler

      I’m planning on laying out our process once it is live… I’m being more conscious of all the steps as I go through them so I can share it when done.

    2. Kailey Walker

      Awesome! Can’t wait

    3. Niki Duffy

      Miles Beckler Fabulous! I’m excited to learn the “how to” of your kindle strategy. Thank you

    This sounds overwhelming …will have to listen many times to digest what you are saying …I know when I listen more times I will get it… I am not sure what I sell would give great give away. Will have to work on that.

    1. Miles Beckler

      I will be sure to leave this video up on YouTube so you can watch it as many times as you need… to other videos you may find useful to help come up with the free offer and how to create the free giveaway:

    2. Bruce Baker

      Hi +gjcody I was going to pop in and, not knowing your specifics, give a few generic ideas for “lead magnets”. But +Miles Beckler beat me to the post! I’m sure the two videos he recommended, with their complete approach (and that you can watch again as needed), will be better for you than my advice.

      Good luck!

    3. gjcody

      Bruce Baker …..Thank you for caring to give your opinion.

    What about FEC regulations for running a business email?

    1. Miles Beckler

      I’m not sure with the FEC regulations you are speaking of are

    Good stuff man

      thanks Brian

  11. Matthias Schwehm Selbstbewusst AUSGESORGT in 17 Wo

    For sure one of the most usefull videos about becoming really successfull with internet marketing. Thank you! 🙂

  12. The Real Internet Marketer

    Great info Miles. I’m a writer, but I also like video, so I’ll be using both. I have my YouTube channel, and it’s rough – but it’s something that’ll evolve in time as I become more comfortable with this. Just waiting for my domain to be migrated to new hosting today in fact, then the blog begins! I’ve got a LOT to say!

    1. Miles Beckler

      one of the reasons my wife and I created success is how passionate we were about getting her messages out… We put in very long hours data out on many platforms straightaway. That has served us greatly!

  13. GoatzAreEpic Maokai

    Hey, Miles great vid. Because of your content, I decided to post Ultimate Guides on niche sites, and the response is overwhelmingly positive, and people are craving for more content actually. Now although the topic is not scalable into a business, this gave me the confidence to pursue another niche and do the same thing there to create a loyal following. Thank you so much Miles

    1. Miles Beckler

      that is great to hear… Also, don’t prejudge a niche that it isn’t scalable to a business, I’ve seen some of the most obscure things in the world generate life-changing income when the right offer was created. With that said, go forth in your new niche, too! Massive action creates kinds of results you desire

    2. Bruce Baker

      Hi +GoatzAreEpic Maokai Guides are great lead magnets. But as Miles says, don’t assume “small” means not viable as a niche. Consider: what ELSE do the people who like your guides also like? (Maybe sell THAT to them or refer as affiliate). And also, depending on the time that producing and promoting them takes, you could make a portfolio of mini projects, each of which only generates a small amount. But, together, maybe a lot. (Or springboard you to another worthwhile thing.)

      Sounds like you’re off to a great start. Good luck!

    Miles! Long time no see ;D

      dominating dude, respect!

  15. Lance Mohr

    This was a phenomenal video. Whoever gave you thumbs down on this is a moron. Your Kindle book idea is brilliant and I thank you very, very much for that

    1. Miles Beckler

      thanks Lance!

  16. RebeccasRoadmap

    I love listening to your videos. They always spark new ideas.

    1. Miles Beckler

      That is great to hear!

  17. Dave

    Yeah Amazon just reported that Kindle book sales are down almost 60% across the board

    1. Miles Beckler

      Please link to the source for this statistic!

    2. Dave

      Miles Beckler I can do that when I get home I’m on my cell phone right now but I saw that earlier today when I was reading about Amazon but I will get it to you miles

    3. Miles Beckler

      Please do… I believe the data is too messy to make such a blanket statement and bet that the numbers you are referencing come from traditional print publishing, or their data agrigators “PubTrack” and “AAP” which is incomplete data at best and probably trying to ‘skew’ the story to try and keep relevant as a dying industry.

      Highly recommend you read this: –

      Some quotes from that source are below for easy reading… Tells a pretty clear picture in my opinion

      “Throughout 2017, a frequent meme circulating in indie author loops was that self-publishing was hitting headwinds, and that self-published sales had slowed dramatically for “everyone.” Even the biggest indie stars of yesteryear were no longer pulling down what they used to, so times must be even tougher for everyone else.
       A quick glance at the pie charts above reveal a different story. The indie share of the entire US ebook market, comprising the various blue wedges in the pies above, now looks like what the indie share of Amazon alone used to be, in our quarterly snapshots from previous years. In
      other words, far from losing ground, the overall indie market share has grown.”
      “Data from PubTrack and the AAP is now missing two thirds of US consumer ebook purchases, and nearly half of all ebook dollars those consumers spend.”

      “Unsurprisingly, when we look at the above pie charts, most online book purchases in 2017 were ebooks (55%), while audiobooks made up a small but fast-growing share of units (6%), and print books accounted for the remaining 39% of units.”

      “70% of online purchases of adult fiction & nonfiction are ebooks & audiobooks, and online consumer dollars skew mostly digital, too.”

    Miles, another great video from you – clear and lucid strategic thoughts that fake gurus rarely share or only share in their high ticket courses……kudos!

    1. Miles Beckler

      Thanks for your kind words

  19. James Winsoar

    I’d recommend getting a lapel mic. It sounds like your noise removal settings are too high.

    1. Miles Beckler

      Lol… default mic in laptop was selected instead of my studio mic…. #Fail.

      Lapel mics only go so far… My Shure SM7B is the hit, when I remember to activate it before recording… lol

  20. Design Your Life With Demi

    Hey Miles! This is the woman you were talking to few days ago from The Digital Nomad Couple account. This is going to be my account as I have decided to do content marketing on YouTube for 120 days. LOL 120!!!! Crazy, scary but thank you for being there inspiring us!!!

    Have you heard about Neil Patel’s site extension called UberSuggest? It’s a software that helps marketers who are leveraging SEO to search and collect keywords to use for their content. It’s what I am planning to use to get long tail keywords because it’s super resourceful. Do you have any other suggestions on how to drive traffic to your YouTube videos? I only know about how long tail keywords should be the same in the title, tags and description & consistency to get the algorithm going, but that’s about it. Is there anything else I’m missing? I’d be happy if you have a previous video about this or you can let me know more about it. Thanks so much!

    1. Miles Beckler

      Haven’t heard of that, but I avoid his stuff, lol. He is smart, tho. You aren’t missing anything… Consciously choose your KWs, make the best video you can, optimize the title, description, tags, then work on the next and the next.

      Your compounding efforts applying that simple strategy 120x over is what makes the biggest difference.

    2. Design Your Life With Demi

      Miles Beckler thank you! I’m itching, actually. I am thinking if it’s okay to re-purpose my video content to a blog post. Like a post with a video on top and a few explaining paragraphs below. Do you think it’s ideal or I’m spreading myself too thin? Did you do this too?

    3. Miles Beckler

      all my blog posts on MilesBeckler.com are from videos… I have them transcribed with Trint.com and copy-edited before posting them. You want 500+ words of content on each one as a bare minimum. I didn’t do this during my 120 day challenge… The video per day was all I could handle… Took me almost a year to get that system in place because I was so busy with everything.

  22. jereeves

    Thanks Miles. I’m about 35 days in, a video a day, going strong. In addition to the videos, Using Trint per your recommendation, got about 10 blog posts, very long blog posts. Transcribing even with Trint is time consuming. I shoot and edit the videos faster. I’m hoping to start getting some real traffic soon…nothing yet.

    1. Miles Beckler

      It is totally time consuming… but the efforts are rewarded in the long term. Remember this is a 3 year strategy for blow-your-mind type results… I had 55 subs at day 30 and about 600 views: Slow and steady is the path. Keep your expectations in the right place and follow through

  23. Donna & Andy

    Hey Miles, Yep I noticed the sound quality right away – kinda cus that’s what we do. I thought – “what is going on with Miles’ sound?”
    So – as recording musicians – we have to produce a good sound recording in our videos to feel comfortable with the end product. I know you have posted this before but I just can’t run around trying to find it again in your videos and I don’t see a reference on your website. I need your affiliate link to get a good mic to hook to our android phones. Also lights – I remember a video on that but…. not sure where that is too.
    We have been away on tour for a month and I got very behind on seeing your weekly videos. I kinda felt lost – but we are back now and working on our marketing strategies once again. As usual – thank you for another wicked video. You are really getting quite good at this! Cheers Buddy!
