Internet Marketing Pt 1

The Internet is a great place to do business, whether you're a retailer selling a particular line of products or a service provider making your living on the Internet. There is, however, one age-old problem with business that never seems to go away: people will not buy what they do not know about.

This is where Internet marketing comes in.

Internet marketing basically involves using various tools and services to let your business reach a greater base of potential customers. Good Internet marketing will bring in a significant number of clients, keep them interested and then make more than happy to purchase more of your products.

A not-so-good Internet marketing program, however, will be a complete waste of time and money. In the worst case scenario, you could even end up doing more harm than good to your business if the marketing strategy is poorly thought out.

Strangely enough, most people actually fail in their Internet marketing strategies not because they lack the knowledge or the technical capabilities to make good use of Internet Marketing.

SEO, HTML, opt-in lists, landing pages – all of this will not matter if the would-be marketer does not know how to actually succeed with the tools at his or her disposal.

Let me be clear: this article is not a technical manual on the finer points of Internet marketing. No tutorials, no tests, no benchmarks.

This article aims to supplement your technical know-how and give you an idea of ​​what to do with your skill and knowledge. It will allow you to channel your efforts and create far-reaching plans.

In short, this article will teach you how to be successful in your first year in Internet marketing.

The Mindset of a Successful Internet Marketer

A successful marketer needs a vision to be able to succeed.

No, I am not talking about some grand, messianic vision or something. I am talking about a vision that will define where all the Internet marketing efforts will go to.

This vision will allow you to focus your efforts into something more productive, and will allow you to truly succeed in Internet marketing. But before you can define your vision, you must first assume the mindset of a successful marketer.

This mindset is in turn composed of different frames of thought. Here are some of the more important ones:

Honest and Sincere
The very first thing I have to tell you is that no truly successful Internet marketer is a sham and a fraud. The stereotype of the Internet marketer that sidelines as a ruthless vulture and snake-oil salesman is an image that is, sadly, more commonly adopted than I would like. But let me tell you that being a successful Internet marketer means being successful for the long run – and you can not be successful in the long run if you start your career as a fraudster. The rewards from fraudulent sales or deceptive marketing strategies are immediate and attractive, but you can not build a marketing empire with foundations laid on lies and deceptions. An Internet marketer with a name built upon reliable business and customer satisfaction will yield more rewards in the long run than an anonymous ghost who has to change names every now and then lest he / she face criminal charges.

Willing to Experiment
One of the marks of a successful Internet marketer is the willingness to try things out. Many would-be marketers spend months (even years) studying how to be effective in Internet marketing. This is all well and good, but all this will be for nothing if you are not willing to put your skills out on the open market where it will actually be tested under pressure. The truth of the matter is that there is not absolute recipe for success as an Internet marketer. You just have to grit your teeth and dive into the whole mess. You learn faster, and you will be able to find out what works and what does not in your particular line of work. Even your mistakes can not be considered as failures if you learn from them and use that knowledge to better yourself.

Reflects and Learn From Mistakes
Just because an experiment of yours fails does not mean you should just up and forget it. The whole point of experimenting is to find out what works and what does not. If something you just implemented does not work, like a weak landing page or faulty search engine optimization, then you have to go back and trace where the mistake stemmed from. This is why it is absolutely essential that you reflect upon any problems you encounter in your Internet marketing campaign. What went wrong, how did it go wrong, how can I fix it and how can I improve on it? These four questions are staples when it comes to reflecting on and learning from any mistakes.

Seeks Excellence in All That Needs to Be Done
Good enough is a far cry for very good, even though both are "good" in a sense. Excellence is when you give your best to everything you do. This excellence is not optional if you want to be a successful Internet marketer. You do not cut corners, you do not do a sloppy job and you do not say "this is good enough." Excellence is basically about making sure that you do as good a job as you can. This pursuit of excellence will always drive you to find better and better ways of doing things, greatly increasing productivity and efficiency. Best of all, your customers will immediately recognize your excellence and will be more willing to at least check out what you have to offer.

Sets Competitive Standards to Meet
There is another reason you need to seek excellence – the best and most stimulating of your competitors also do the same. You must always understand what your competitors are up to. You have to know what they offer, how they do things, how they market themselves and even how successful they are. If excellence will push you further up in your marketing efforts, then your competition will define the bare minimum you need to work with. This is especially useful when you are new to Internet marketing. Your competitors will most likely have been around for quite a long time already and will have spent a significant amount of time and money to get where they are now. All you need to do is analyze how they do things and you will be able to benefit the most from your competitor's existing practices.

Understand the Needs of the Customer
This is cliché, I know, but it is something so many new Internet marketers overlook that it is worth pointing out once again. All people have needs. If somebody comes along selling something that will satisfy my needs, then I will be more than happy to part with my hard-earned money. This simple fact underscores the importance of spending time, money and effort reaching out and understanding the needs of your target customer base. Many first-time Internet marketers also have this frame of thought where they believe that exploiting their customers and wringing money from them as quickly as possible is the only way to survive. This thinking can not be more flawed. Any kind of business, Internet marketing included, will only survive if trust is built between customer and client.

Reaches Out and 'Touches' Customers
This is another cliché, yes, but it is nonetheless important: your customers must feel that you actually give a hoot about their satisfaction. I have come across so many marketing tactics that look and feel stale and too focused on selling a product. The marketers here have made a fatal mistake: they got too absorbed with exploiting the needs of the customer rather than connecting to these needs. You must always show that the products and services you offer are solutions to a problem, not just tools you use to squeeze money out from customers. It is also worth note that you should not try too hard to "sell" your product to a potential client. I have come across numerous sales pages with a ton of testimonies, videos, promos, guarantees and smiling faces all promising one thing or another. The marketers behind these pages were trying so hard to convince me to buy their products that I simply got turned off and left the page before even finding out what they wanted to sell to me.

Transparent About Everything
People will be more willing to buy a product if they know exactly what they are getting. Many marketers love to use fancy prose, grand promises and technical jargon to bedazzle potential customers. This is not such a bad thing in most cases, but all this grandstanding will be for nothing if the potential client does not understand what the heck they are looking at. Be as transparent as you can about what you sell and you will find customers much more willing to do business with you. This is especially important for product pricing and fees. You would be surprised at how many sales pages exist on the Internet that do not list the actual costs of purchasing a product or service. Lots of promises and lots of testimonies, yes, but the lack of information on something as basic as pricing is enough to turn most people away from the site.

Builds a Network of Partners
Internet marketing is not a one-man (or one-woman) job. You will need the help of a lot of people to make yourself really successful in this field of work. Once you get down to the more complicated aspects of Internet marketing, you will inevitably find yourself working with a whole host of people: content creators, writers, shippers, reviewers, accountants, customer care etc. Everyone you meet is a potential partner, so always take the opportunity to create and expand your network whenever you can. Even fellow Internet marketers can prove to be useful partners. You could swap customers by selling products and services that complement the business of the other market. For example, marketer A sells fiction ebooks via Amazon while marketer B sells leather covers for the Amazon Kindle. Both marketers could work together to promote each other's products; effectively sharing their customer base with each other.

Emotionally Balanced About the Business
Nobody is a heartless machine, but breaking down into an emotional wreck all the time can not be good for business. A successful Internet marketer needs to be completely objective when it comes to making business decisions. Your personal life must not see into your work, especially when your marketing efforts start to get distributed in the process. Beliefs, opinions, biases and even political affiliations must be kept separate from work, otherwise they could blind you from seeing things as they really are.

This also goes for the success and failure of your Internet marketing ventures. Internet marketing is a fast-moving world, which means things die off as quickly as they are born. Look long and hard at your marketing programs and be impartial about which ones are worth spending energy on and which ones need to be dropped.

Uses Money Productively and Efficiently
One of the more common problems with Internet marketers is that they do not know how to use their money wisely. Let's say you have earned a cool thousand dollars in sales from your most successful marketing campaign. Bills and taxes are paid, and you still have $ 500 left over. What will you do with this money? Will you purchase educational materials, obtain marketing tools and hire people to handle the time-consuming tasks, or will you blow it all on a fancy tablet PC? Remember that the money you earn is not something you have to spend right away. It is a resource that you can use to make your marketing campaigns even more successful in the future. You could even use that money to save up for retirement or as a mortgage down payment. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure that you always 'invest' your money in something that will be really beneficial to you.

Willing to Innovate and Create
There are a lot of marketing programs out there that can introduce you to the basics, but do not ever forget to be creative. There is often no need to reinvent the wheel, and there are plenty of instances where you can learn from the experiences of the successful (and not-so-successful) marketers out there. But you do have to remember that people are constantly learning and evolving as well. What might have worked two, three years ago will be done to death by now – especially considering the breakneck pace of evolution over the Internet. It is for this reason that a successful marketer is always willing to try out new things. These new things may not always be successful or turn a profit right away, but they will always impart valuable knowledge to the marketer at the end of the day. This is especially important when you consider the next frame of thought that is present in the mindset of successful Internet marketers.

'Hungry' for More and More Knowledge
The last but most certainly not the least of important mindsets of a successful Internet marketer is the ever-increasing desire to learn more about his or her business. You must never, ever stop thinking that you know enough to keep you on top of your business. The world of business is ever-evolving, with new players (and competitors) coming in with their innovative and creative methods. The last thing you want to do is to fall behind the competitive curve simply because you are not on top of the latest news and information regarding your business. It is for this reason that you must always be hungry to learn whatever you can about your business.

Talk to your customers. Know what makes them happy and what frustrates them.

Find out how you can be operate more effectively on a day-to-day basis.

Learn how to make more with less.

These are but a useful of areas that you can focus on.

Be hungry for knowledge, and you will be able to stay on top of the game at all times.

How's Your Reputation?

Everything in life is about relationships, that's why we network, go on dates, meet people for coffee, for lunches and social gatherings. We all do this to meet some need, whether it's for life partners, establishing clients, friends, employees or strategic alliances.

What happens after is what really matters. Do you follow-up? Do you ask for the sale, or the friendship or the relationship to begin? Do you ask yourself what your intention is for this relationship?

After all the effort to engage someone to establish a relationship, what do you do then? Do you send a thank you note, or give them a call? Do you ask if you can proceed with the next step? Or do you drop the ball?

It seems to me this step is where most people drop the ball. I call it a strike # 1.

If you have given a follow-up call and now engaging in conversations towards having a relationship, whether it's personal or biz how are you keeping your new relationship fresh? What after care do you do? Or do you feel, well I got the sale or the interest so I do not have to do anything else?

If you do this, you are dead wrong, this is where the bleeding starts. People will start to fall out of 'like' with you anywhere from a week to three months. When people start to fall out of 'like' with you or your company you need to find out why. Was there something you said, you would do and have not done yet? Was it a call, send them information, connect them with someone else or arrange for training? You get the idea.

How do you show you really care? What warm and fuzzy thing do you do to refresh this wonderful relationship? When you are shopping to get what you want and it arrives, you need to look after it. (my mom and dad used to tell me all the time you better look after it, especially when I got something I really wanted, like my red tricycle, another story)

There is a cost to you if you do not. Not only may you lose that customer, employee, that personal relationship you will lose referrals, people may bad mouth you, you'll lose your reputation, trust and respect. Which is a greater loss for you, your reputation or your considerations for not following up?

It's all about relationships, people will stay where they feel valued and appreciated. Period!

Networking Strategies for Professional Services Providers

Networking plays an integral role in our business building landscape and this is true for providers of professional services as well as for printers, web designers, coaches and so on.

Perhaps it was not always the case, but there is an increasing need for professionals to be visible in the proverbial marketplace.

Networking can help you to do just that and implemented strategically, can produce a positive ROT (return on time).

Here are tips on how to make your business networking more effective

Not all groups are created equal . We all know that the time set aside for networking must not impede your ability to handle your clients and so it is imperative that you select your networking events and groups with great care. There are some groups that while accompanied by nice individuals, are simply not going to be effective for your practice. Choose carefully and attend several meetings or events as a guest before making a commitment.

Reciprocity is key . There is a networking slogan that says "givers get" and while not 100% accurate 100% of the time (what is ?!), you can certainly count on getting more introductions if, in fact, you make them as well. Do not become "branded" as someone that is more than happy to be in the receiving end of introductions, but never make them in return. If you are going to engage in networking, and be successful at doing so, you must be a "proactive" giver.

Staying on the grid means the difference between success and failure. Going to meetings and events is only half the story. Following up and staying on the grid of all of these networking connections is the all-important second piece of the puzzle. Never was "out of sight, out of mind" so true. You must stay visible so that when and if an appropriate introduction can be made, you will be top-of-mind and receive it.

Have a plan. Since we know that going to networking meetings and events can be awfully time-consuming, it's even more important to have a plan for what you want to do and what you want to meet when you are at the event. Sure you might walk into the room and know some of the attendees but is it really worth to stand around and talk to them when there are new people to meet? Do you really want to spend the entire evening talking to one person even though dis-engaging looks especially arduous? Be prepared for the "game" (of networking) and you have a much better chance to get positive results.

Follow-up. Gather those cards but do not stash them in a drawer somewhere. Take the time and have a process for following up with the people that you met and do so in a timely manner.

You are taking time from your billable hours to attend networking events. Network effectively and you'll be certain to see an increase in your billable hours and ROI from your efforts.

Bluetooth Personal Area Networks

A personal area network, or PAN, is a collection of communication technology devices within the range of one person. When communication between these devices is wireless, the acronym becomes WPAN, or wireless personal area network. In reality, and for all practical purposes, most personal area networks are wireless. For our purposes, this article will consider personal area networks as being wireless.

As opposed to local area networks (LAN), and wide area networks (WAN), the personal area network operates in a reliably short range, usually up to a maximum of thirty feet. The most common method of connection is through Bluetooth wireless technology. Bluetooth technology holds several key advantages over Wi-Fi in ease of use, as it is not necessary to configure each component and requires significantly less power to operate. Unlike infrared networks, Bluetooth also does not require objects to be in alignment in order to communicate. The huge practical advantage to the end user is the ability to transmit both voice and data between devices without the use of wires or USB cabling.

A Bluetooth enabled wireless personal network, also known as a piconet, can wirelessly connect a minimum of two and a maximum of eight devices. In a piconet, one device acts as the master device to connect with up to seven active devices. Data is communicated from the master device to another (slave) device. The role of master device rapidly switches to any device in the PAN which is in the process of data transfer. A Bluetooth device has the ability to seek out and communicate with any compatible device within the immediate area.

Probably the earliest and most common example of a Bluetooth personal area network is the use of a wireless headset and cellular phone. Another popular use is that of the wireless mouse and keyboard. However, the potential for convenience and productivity of a wireless personal network extends well beyond early uses. Data can easily be synchronized and transmitted wirelessly between PDA, personal computer and cellular phone. Bluetooth wireless printers and fax machines are a great convenience to laptop users. Photos from digital cameras and cell phones can be downloaded. Wireless headphones paired with portable music devices offer hassle free music enjoyment.

The list goes on, and is limited only by the creativity of the user and limitations of the physical devices. As personal area network technology improvements, one can expect the both the use and capability of wireless personal devices to expand well into the future.

The Social Networking Development Through Touting Revolution

Web 2.0 has spoken about innumerable opportunities in the field of social net development, which has contributed in the rise of web logs or blogs (as we prefer calling them). Although the ideology of sharing one's thoughts over the web was alive even before the existence of Web 2.0, blogs are a little different. Maintained by a group or an individual, blog extends to people's networking. Not only does an individual share his knowledge or thoughts, but also people can participate by commenting on the blog. Blogs offer better social network integration and allow one-click sharing on various, reputed social networking sites. Another feature was permanent link and link that directly took the user to his / her blog.

The evolution of blogging

Microblogging led to an evolution of blogging and blogs are the earliest expression of social media. Microblogging is quite different than blogging. The Microblogging trend began with the most famous "Twitter", a creation from social community developers. It allowed us to share "What's on your mind" in mere 140 characters and instigated interaction through comments. Although various sites such as and exist, Twitter became prominent and synonymous to Microblogging. In terms of users, Twitter manages a huge crowd of about 200 million users across the globe. It manages around 140 million tweets a day.

Twitter gives a text messaging feel, limiting the tweet to 140 characters only. It is direct and defines "Micro" in the word Microblogging. May it be a disaster management, a star wedding or a political movement, Twitter is the first social networking platform to address it all. This social networking development allows creation of groups. Masses from diverse backgrounds with diverse intents join Twitter. Twitter allows community formation for a dedicated purpose; wherein, masses can interact and share solutions to various issues. It allows communication or political movements supporting it with Tweetstats and Twittermaps.

A viral to marketing

Social network Development Company carefully designed it to share all types of multimedia information. Another group of social network developers resolved in establishment of Facebook in 2004. Holding over 400 million users, Facebook makes for the largest social networking development. The basic intent of social media creation can be broadly divided into three parts: To share your content, to comment and participate in discussions, and to be a part of the cause or a particular community. One characteristic of content communities is their ability to share like a viral. Facebook has also developed as an intense marketing tool. Successful marketing strategy is ranked according to link shares and likes over Facebook.

Let's Tube

Another form of social networking development is We-Tube. Yes, I-Tube, YouTube, We all Tube. Sharing User-generated content is the trend. As Facebook and Twitter allows text sharing (Microblogging), YouTube is the largest platform for videos sharing. Videos ranging from significant issues, scams, movies, songs, news to home-made videos are shared on YouTube. YouTube became available in the year 2005; however, it acquired fame only after Google owned it in late 2006.

As social network development companies dominate all sectors, all the companies from mammoths like Dell to mid-sized organizations are adopting internal social networking development. It simply means if you do not want your boss to see it, do not share it! This may lead to a well-organized activities and employee participation on a large scale.

What No One Wants to Tell You About Online Social Networking

Every day I run across at least one article that claims all businesses should invest serious time in social networking or run the risk of failing. However, I also seem to run across another article claiming that social networking is a waste of time or even bad for your business.

So, which is it?

As with most things in life, I think the answer lies somewhere in between. The ugly truth is that social networking is not a one size fits all solution. It is not going to magically transform you into an international superstar. And it certainly is not going to happen overnight.

Online social networking is really no different than the regular social networking that has been going on in the business world for years. Good, lasting customer relationships are built on trust and respect. And building that kind of trust and respect takes time and most importantly, effort.

I myself have been involved in social networking for over a year and in that time I have painfully learned what does and does not work. I have on more than one occasion put my virtual foot in my virtual mouth. Not a pretty thing.

What I have observed is that the following three groups seem to benefit the most from social networking:

1.) Individuals selling services in a highly competitive field

2.) Small Businesses that need to reach more geographically dispersed customers

3.) Non-profit organizations

If you happen to fall into one of these groups AND you are willing to accept the fact that building a solid reputation will take time, then it is very likely social networking could have a tremendous impact on your business or cause.

Another thing I have learned is that building a reputation online is harder than it is in the real world. When a potential customer physically meets with a business person, they are able to observe all sorts of things that can help them decide whether to trust the business person. For example, how did the business person dress, what was their attitude and how did they introduce themselves.

When a potential customer meets a business person online, they have less information in which to make a decision. Often times, a business person has mere seconds in order to grab and hold a customer’s attention. This can make building lasting relationships challenging.

Despite the fact that social networking can sometimes be difficult and time consuming, it can and does deliver remarkable results. For some small businesses and individuals this can mean the difference between bankruptcy and success.

If you are on the fence about whether you should embrace the social networking world, remember this key phrase, Garbage In, Garbage out. If you go into it expecting easy and fast results, you might want to think again. Rome was not built in a day and neither will your online reputation.
