Does building a freelance digital marketing business seem daunting to you? Are there too many complex things involved that it's easy to get lost in the weeds? Fear not, my friend!

A few years ago, I discovered a simple, three-step formula that completely changed the game for me, and I'm excited to share it with you.

The formula is simple: have a product, a sales process, and drive traffic. That's it.

And here's the best part – beginners can start with affiliate marketing offers, making it easy to sell other companies' products without creating them yourself. Plus, a simple two-page website called a funnel can be an effective sales process for selling digital products.

To achieve success with freelance digital marketing…

It's essential to utilize the right strategies and resources. These include creating the right sales process, understanding which traffic sources and social media platforms to use, and utilizing spare time effectively to achieve business goals.

I can't stress enough how important it is to begin with realistic objectives. As you gain knowledge and skills, you can work towards increasing income and achieving your goals. That's why I created my free ebook – to provide in-depth guidance on building a profitable online business in only one to two hours per day.

Let's not forget about the power of short-form video…

Platforms like TikTok, Instagram and Facebook Reels have taken the digital marketing world by storm, attracting massive audiences and providing an opportunity for digital and affiliate marketers to expand their reach.

Even without a large following, short-form videos can attract audiences, create engagement, and ultimately drive traffic to your affiliate products. That's why I suggest focusing on creating videos that provide value to customers in specific niches. In the episode, I share the three most profitable niches to choose from.

By putting helpful content in these videos, freelance digital marketing businesses can generate a significant amount of traffic and views without relying on having a large follower count. This strategy utilizes the power of social media and the ever-growing demand for quick, consumable content that caters to your customers needs.

So there you have it – a simple, three-step formula for building a profitable digital marketing business.

Download my free ebook, focus on realistic objectives, and utilize short-form videos (face or faceless) to drive traffic. With these strategies and resources at your disposal, there's no limit to what you can achieve as a freelance digital marketer.
