  1. I love reading post like this because it sounds so easy but its all about putting it into the works. My first attempt with SEO I wasn’t using the correct keywords. I always assumed using long tail keywords was super spammy but I realize now it pretty much narrows everything down. I still struggle with social media here and there but it will get better.

    1. Thanks for loving this post, Taylor.

      Yes, long tail keywords are great for ranking, and attracts a more targeted audience.

      Another way is to use Low Hanging Fruit Keywords which can be learned at Wealthy Affiliate University. They also provide superb training on social media. I have years of digital marketing experience, and yet I find I am constantly so much from this platform. That is why I am passionate about introducing it to business owners like you.

  2. Awesome post explaining the best ways to promote your new online business, I really don’t know many website owners who do offline marketing other than business cards and promotional products from time to time.

    Promoting online sounds to be the most effective method of promoting your business, I am happy I stumbled upon your post I was considering on doing some offline marketing but you have changed my mind

    Thank You

    1. Hi Jeff! Happy to help. 🙂

      Traditional marketing, especially offline marketing can be costly. Lots of wastage, and lots of time taken up.
      Online marketing is more cost effective and time efficient. Very glad to hear I have changed your mind, and you are going to try online marketing.
      If you are not sure how to do it, Wealthy Affiliate has a very excellent training on how to promote your business online. You can check it out here –

  3. Timotheus,

    Thank you for helping me understand online advertising! There are so many different terms used in digital marketing. If you are new to the business, it can be a little daunting. But you described in a way that is easy to understand. I am in complete agreement with your assessment of Wealthy Affiliate (WA). I joined recently and am amazed by how much I have learned in such a short amount of time. What’s even more impressive is the support system that WA offers. Members are extremely helpful. If it weren’t for the encouragement and mentoring I have received, I would have given up by now.
    Thanks again for the great information!

    1. You’re welcome Nora. Yes, it can be a little daunting. So glad my article helped. 🙂

      Also very glad you agree about Wealthy Affiliate. The supportive community truly is one of the gems there.

  4. Great article on online marketing. I am new at marketing online so this was quite an eye opener with all the different ways to promote your business online. I am curious what the difference is between long tailed keywords and low hanging fruit as I seem to be having issues getting my articles to rank with google. I type in my keywords in the search bar and go page after page and never see my posts. I would love any information you can give me to help me rank.

    1. Hi Dena. Thanks. Glad you like the article. 🙂

      A Long Tailed Keyword is a phrase that is more descriptive for a search term. For example, evening gowns would be a generic keyword, a phrase that is a general search. Affordable violet evening gowns would be a long tailed keyword. As you can see, it is more descriptive. Also, it is more exact in search.

      The person who enters this long tailed keywords will be most probably looking exactly for an evening gown that is violet in color and low priced. Studies have found that people who use long tailed keywords have a higher intent to make a purchase. This is because they already have done research, and have narrowed down their search to what they are looking for exactly.

      A Low Hanging Fruit Keyword is a keyword or phrase that has higher chances of ranking high in search results. To know what are the keywords, you will have to use keyword tools for research and look at the search volume, traffic, QSR and potential ranking for SEO. One of the best keyword tools I use is Jaaxy. I use it for all my online work. It is truly useful and has proven results. Here is a link to more information about keywords and the keyword tool –

      I hope this information helps you. Please feel free to ask me any further questions. I will be most happy to assist. 🙂

  5. Hello Timotheus,

    What a great and informative post. I’m quite a newcomer in the online business and I have just started to learn about how to promote my own business. In the past months, it has become obvious to me how important digital marketing is, and that offline marketing is getting less and less important especially for pure online businesses like mine. Your easy understandable explanation has deepened my knowledge. It shows your great competence and longtime experience in this business.

    The niche I have chosen is healthy living and I promote products which help people to live a healthier life. Which social media platforms do you think are the best ones for me, and on how many platforms should I be active?


    1. Hi Pernilla. Thank you. Glad you found the post good and informative. And you are right. Now, online marketing is more needed than offline. And thank you for your kind compliments too.

      You have chosen a good niche. It is profitable and in demand. But also very competitive. I am glad you know that you need to promote your products online. Regarding social media, it is best to be active on one platform, and do the promotion well there. You can choose one platform to be active and still share your posts on all the other of the Big 6.

      For your niche, there are a few platforms that can work well. They are Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube. For now, I would suggest doing your promotions on Facebook. It is excellent for targeting people who are interested in health products. For Instagram, it is also ideal. So do post updates there to and build a following.

      Pinterest is great for traffic. So do not miss out on the opportunity there. Traffic can lead to sales too. Finally, YouTube is excellent because now more and more people prefer to watch information than read. Plus visuals do tell a thousand words. And people remember images better than words. But videos do take a lot of time to create.

      Look at the above options and consider which one you would have time and effort to focus on. Like I mentioned, videos are great but it takes a lot of time to create them. So, if you are doing business alone, then maybe consider just doing Facebook.

      1. Thank you so much for your very helpful answer, Timotheus!

        I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my question thoroughly. I’m going to follow your advice to concentrate on Facebook first. That sounds very wise. You helped me to choose which platform to choose next. I will do as you say and join Instagram soon and a bit later Pinterest. Youtube is a bit of a hurdle for me, so I will let that be for the time being.

        All the best,

  6. Thank you Timotheus for a straight to the point description of what needs to get done on our websites. Your explanation are great and further makes me wonder which direction to take with my website. I suppose it s just a matter of reevaluating what I want to happen with the audience I am seeking. I appreciate all you mentioned and will try to apply some of these thoughts into practical usage. Thanks again

    1. Hi Xavier. You’re welcome. 🙂 Glad you like the information and explanation here.

      Yes, you are right to consider the direction to take for your website. That is very important and needs to be done from the start. With the direction, you can come up with a digital marketing strategy and a digital marketing plan. These will help you move forward in that direction, towards your goal.

      You will need to think about the target audience for your niche. To help you decide on a target audience, think about the customer persona. There may be more than one sometimes. The customer persona will help you truly understand your audience, and their needs. That will help you know how your product or service can fulfill their needs.

      Glad to hear you will be applying some of the tactics I have shared. Another article of mine may be of help too – Digital Marketing Strategies to Help Promote Your Business. Do check it out. 🙂
