According to our recent survey, the biggest problems of people trying to market their business online are:
- Converting leads to sales
- Managing an online marketing system
- Prioritizing time, energy and money for best results
We asked the question, “What is your greatest challenge with Internet Marketing?” through SurveyMonkey.com to thousands of small business owners and entrepreneurs through our email lists, Facebook, and blogs.
We also asked them their number of years working online:
- 44% worked online under a year
- 34.3% had been working online 1-3 years
- 27.1% had been working online over 3 years
We also asked, “If resources were not an issue and you could learn
only one thing about Internet Marketing and making money on the
Internet, what would it be?”
This was an open-ended question and we received a wide variety of
responses, however, the majority expressed wanting to learn to deal
with the same three issues: lead conversion, an organized system for
marketing, and managing time, energy and money for best results.
