Short Term Marketing Strategy
The single best short term marketing strategy is pay-per-click marketing campaigns. A "PPC" campaign simply involves placing advertisements on the results pages of search engines.

How to Track Online Marketing ROI Using Cost-Per-Action
Forget clicks, page views, and impressions; the only way to effectively track your online marketing ROI is through Cost-per-Action (CPA) analysis.
As the online advertising market is poised to grow nearly $10 billion over the next six years, it's essential that we remember the importance of measuring the effectiveness of that spending. There's no point undertaking any marketing or advertising campaign unless you can measure its results. And results are best measured in terms of return on investment (ROI).

It was supposed to happen in thirty days. Buy the ebook with the holy grail to online success and then watch life unfold. But that was several months ago.
You sit and wonder what are you doing wrong. You have been over the same steps again and again but still nothing changes. You are considering giving up thinking that you are not cut out for this.
No wonder why 95 % of online marketers fail. Most are ready for some quick cash instead of digging in for the long haul. It is a human weakness which will always be exploited.
I have been there. Several years ago. But I am still here hanging around. What made me decide to stick around ? The quest to know the truth about Internet marketing.
The learning curve in online marketing can be steep indeed....
Internet Market Selection
The advent of the Internet has made this world an almost borderless world. In the context of enterprise, the Internet is becoming more and more important to many companies and organizations around the globe.

In the context of Internet Marketing, my central message to business owners is that in order for you to have the competitive advantage, you'll need to effectively identify and attempt to satisfy the genuine needs and wants of specifically defined target markets, and that you'll have to do so more effectively than your competitors....
In this Article we look at the third competitive advantage of successful Internet Marketers - Creating Products.
The main problem with creating products is not in the build process, but rather in the "Ideas Process."
Product Ideas Come From NEEDS
* New Knowledge
Research at centres of learning gives rise to new theories that provide a wealth of ideas, for new products.
Modification and copying of existing products and services is the most common source of new ideas for products.
Most inventors of products have big ego's that are only satisfied by the "creative process," from invention to production.
Hardship in terms of effort required to do any work or activity is a rich source of new ideas for products.
Shortages of necessities and luxuries very often give rise to new ways and products to overcome the shortages....
The Tao of Web Marketing
A few months ago I was watching a stream meandering back andforth across a flat plain in a high mountain valley. The streamreached it's destination - a small lake - but only after dozensof loops and curves. It occurred to me that Water and clever WebMarketing have something in common - they both follow the pathof least resistance.
Let me explain.
Your first contact with a future customer usually starts with anemail. It could be an Ad in an Ezine, it could be your ResourceBox at the end of one of your Articles, or it could be yourSignature File in your correspondence.
But in the chain of events that leads to a web sale, an email isthe point of greatest resistance.
Why is that?
Firstly, your future customer is reading your message offline....

New Form of Click Fraud Discovered
If you use PPC advertising and are in a highly competitive market, you can't afford not to read this.
According to a recent article in theregister. co. uk, you now have another kind of click fraud to worry about. Or perhaps we should start calling it "no-click fraud." Unlike every other kind of click fraud where nefarious website owners click the advertisements on their sites or nefarious competitors click on your advertisements to try to bankrupt you, this new breed of click fraud doesn't click at all. Instead, the fraudsters launch thousands of searches on a specific keyword you've bid on--and don't click. This drives down your click-through rate, which eventually leads to all the advertisements targeting that keyword getting pulled....

After that another year or so to make it to the top of the listings, that is, if you are extremely diligent in promoting to them monthly and following all the different rules for each search engine.
There are several ways to market your web site yourself. Your marketing efforts will yield more results than any other form of marketing....
Marketing Gurus: Do You Need One?
Its become fashionable to bash marketing "gurus" nowadays.
There are some for whom the prospect of even looking at someone as a "guru" is a sin. They believe in being free-thinkers, unfettered by the bonds of guru-dom.
Then there are those who try to score points by "proving" gurus wrong. They think they have achieved a new high in their field just by proving that a "guru" made a false statement.
The problem with such people is that they refuse to understand "gurus" for what they are.
So just what IS a guru (marketing or otherwise)?
To put it simply, a guru is someone who has "been there, done that."
A guru is not one who is meant to be followed like a sheep, nor one whose every word is written in stone....
What Happened When I Allowed The Mad Hatter To Take Over My Online Marketing
Returns had been steady since I created www. howtoproducts-xl. com back in December 2004. Steady, but not spectacular, so I decided to conduct a survey.
What I did was to mail those visitors who had taken up my freebie offer but hadn't made a purchase. They were presented with three optional price bands for each of ten products and asked to tick the one that best reflected value for money for each individual creation.
The market spoke up and it was clear that I was in danger of over-pricing.
However, it is wise to exercise caution when playing around with your pricing structure so soon after a launch. Do it overtly and some will accuse you of being a rip-off artist; others will say you don't know your 'a' from your 'e' (which I patently did not)....
