I recently sent out a quick survey to people on my list. The survey results were very interesting. I love statistics and likewise, this has really helped to show me how I can best help others.
Even though this was not a multiple choice question, 100% of respondents said that they were struggling with either time, money, website traffic, or leads.
- 38% indicated that money was a big struggle
- 29% are struggling with having enough time
- 29% are struggling with getting enough traffic
- 29% are struggling with converting traffic to leads
Out of 15 Internet Marketing Topics, the top 5 topics of interest were clearly visible.
- 62% – Facebook Marketing
- 62% – Search Engine Optimization
- 57% – Email Marketing
- 57% – Facebook Page Development
- 50% – Twitter Marketing
This is a bit surprising since SEO and Email marketing have been around for over 15 years. I can only surmise that people realize that SEO and Email marketing are absolutely essential to success online. Fortunately, both are now being helped tremendously by Facebook and Twitter.
It’s interesting to note that YouTube Marketing didn’t make the top 5, since video marketing is one of the best ways to get ranked in Google. Don’t worry, it came in sixth at 43%.
When it comes to attending a marketing mastermind group;
- 71% said they would attend at least once a month.
- 33% said would attend weekly.
Of the 71% that said they would attend at least once a month, 100% of them said they would only participate if it was free. Now keep in mind, I made no attempt to prove value. However, about 25% freely added a comment that essentially said they would consider paying to join a mastermind if they saw value in it.
What do you think about these results? How do they correspond with you? Leave a comment below and let me know!
