Internet Marketing - Article Announcer
Who said marketing on the internet was easy. All the successful marketers have worked long hours plugged into their computers. Total commitment has been give to the internet for the glory of being called a 'Guru'. Of course, the financial successes aren't bad either. Or so I hear.
There is no easy way. Work is involved. Time evaporates so much faster in front of a computer. I have given many hours to the school of internet marketing. I think I have bought every new piece of softway and ebook created by these 'Gurus'.
I know I am not alone. I was a 'newbie' last year, starting July 2004. I managed to spend every penny I had and got into debt trying to make a go of it. Meaning, there is a price to pay - time and money....
Internet Marketing, Fact Or Fiction?
I'm sure you've seen it before, your inbox overflowing with promises of making millions in the span of a few weeks. If your like me you have these "opportunities" safely tucked away in your recycle bin faster than you can say "Spam",
but all the while in the back of your mind is that ever-present question, "What if?".
What if hidden among the tidalwave of "Get Rich Quick" hype is the one chance for you to turn your life around and take control of your future?
I won't lie to you, almost all of the garbage floating around the internet today is just that....trash!
I must inform you however, you CAN make your living online if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty.
There are two main factors in the the prejudice of internet marketing,
[Lack of effort] This is the number one killer of the american dream....
I Was at the Point of Giving Up With My Website - Then Something Wonderful Happened!
This wasn't meant to sound like one of those "rags to riches" stories but for me, it sure seems that way.
Hello. My name is Gary Simpson. I live in Perth, Western Australia.
My internet presence commenced in August 2002 after I signed up with what has now become known as a notorious web-host company (if they could be called that). They fleeced me for several thousand dollars at an all day "seminar." I exchanged good money for a litany of broken promises, inferior template design, ongoing costs and shocking service. Ouch! Welcome to the world wide web Gary!
After suffering far too long trying to make that useless scenario work I paid a lovely lady even more money to extract me from their clutches....
Are You Utilizing a 5-Point Prospecting System?
If not, you may be losing out on some very valuable business. First, let me explain What the term '5-Point Prospecting' means. It means that, at any one time, you are using 5 different marketing methods to get your name and business known. Now, there are many more than 5 ways to market your product or service, and if you want to use more than 5, great! Here are my top 5 Prospecting Methods:
1. PURCHASED LEADS: Purchased leads are not all equal. I like to purchase the 'top of the line' Leads, the 'surveyed' leads. These people have answered a short survey, stating when they can start, how much they have to invest, and if they've ever been in business before. Now, when I get these leads, I DON'T email them....
How SPAM Sells Sex, Greed, and Survival
The unsolicited email people react to most is what yells for money through our base needs involving sex, greed and survival.
Selfish SPAMMER messages are more clear to understand than all the subtle appearances of simple unsolicited email such as misdirected messages with incorrect email addresses.
The top 10 abusers generate most of the unsolicited email worldwide. The top in this group are located in the US, but often send from outside the country.
Imagine offices scattered around the world with more than 10,000 servers all sending out the same junk message amounting to millions of emails sent per hour.
Do you know anyone who has purchased male member enlargement pills? It's one of the major messages junk emailers are sending today....
How To Find Deep Discount Pro Online Marketing Tools
You can't row a boat without an oar or build a house without a hammer. And, you can't build an online business without essential Internet marketing tools. Sadly, thousands try (unsuccessfully) everyday.
Those who do use online tools are generally paying far too much for them because they haven't yet looked into the alternative. I'll tell you about that in a minute, but first...
What's the most important online tool we need? A website, of course. No brainer. How else would potential online customers find out if we have what they need?
Next, we should at least have an autoresponder to help automate our marketing efforts and an ad tracker to keep track of which ads are pulling and which are a waste of time....
Automated Selling and Recruiting - A Simple System
Some years ago, on the recommendation of a friend, I visited Amazon. com for the first time. My friend was someone whose judgement I trusted - and I had also heard good things about Amazon from other friends and colleagues.
I was certainly impressed with what I saw when I got to the site, it was well laid out, information was clear, prices were good and there was a great range to choose from. But I didn't buy anything - not on that visit. Later on I went back to the site and I am now a regular customer.
So what's the moral of the story? I went to one of the best websites on the planet, I was already interested and I had plenty of first hand recommendations from people who I knew and trusted - but I didn't buy anything....
Manipulate Your Visitors With Reverse Psychology
Many people say that it is easy to write a sales copy and that there is really nothing to it. Well, all I can say is they are wrong! For many, writing your sales copy is difficult. Having the ability to write sales copy is an attribute that not many people have. When writing a sales copy you need to realize that there are a lot of psychological principles that are involved in the process. Reverse psychology on the other hand, is even more powerful when it is used properly.
In this article I am going to go over how reverse psychology works, how to apply it to a sales copy and when the best and effective time to use it is.
How Reverse Psychology Works
Reverse psychology is nothing more than a mind game you play and the object of the game is to confuse and distort the minds of others....
How To Take Advantage Of Your Competition
When people market their business, they pay little attention to their competition. However, they can learn a lot from them. Your competition plays a large role in your business and in your marketing efforts, so don't ignore them.
There is an old saying, "Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer". In this case, your enemy is your competition. You shouldn't look at your competition as an enemy, but, as a guide or a valuable tool.
Your competition can be an asset to your business. I want you to think about this for a minute, your competition is like having a one stop shopping center, they have it all. Let me give you an example, take a look at your fearsome indirect competition, they have it all....
There is Hidden a Successful Formula in Everything
Although many say that things change on the net, still what worked before keeps working. You can advertise with start pages or banner exchanges. They are both good tools. They can be the 'Greatest Advertising Technique" to you, although some say that they are outdated.
Many do not believe that banner exchanges still work. Some still use them successfully. You need the right formula to make them work.
Let me give you an example: If you have a PC and you do not know how to use it, you need to learn how. You go and learn the tactics and you will successfully switch on the PC.
This means that you need to know how to use the advertising techniques. You have to see what works best for you? Which do you prefer?...
A Crystal Ball for Your Web Business
Are you considering launching an eCommerce website? If you are, you may want to take your crystal ball down from the shelf to shed some light on whether or not your business will fare well online. In reality, there is no magic to eCommerce at all, it is all about preparing, thinking and implementing your ideas and products using sound business techniques. Here are just a couple of questions to ask yourself before you get started:
1. Will you be selling a product that can be delivered economically and conveniently from the Internet? If you are unsure or answered "no" you should go back and do some more research until you can safely answer "yes" to this question. For example: if you are selling custom-made glass products that require expensive packaging and shipping costs, make sure you can still make a profit from your sales, after expenses, before starting up....
Believability - Youve Either Got It or You Aint!
Believability is what's missing, and the majority of all businesses have the same problem. They advertise Institutionally, they fail to inform and educate their potential customers, they believe (and sometimes it's true), that they have the best product/service in their field. Trouble is, the customer usually doesn't appreciate that fact! Big Problem.
Having an online business is not unlike having a shop in the high street. Both have to be advertised. The shop distributes flyers, brochures; mailers, advertisments etc. and hopes for a percentage return on their investment (usually poor, but that's another story). However, the shop has one small advantage, it has a physical presence, customers can visit it, view the product, the decor;...
Nobody Knows You Yet!
It is really a small wonder why most people fail in the first 90 days on the Internet (which might explain why most products on the Internet come with 90 day money-back guarantee!). After putting up your web pages in cyber space, to expect people to know of your presence without promotion and marketing effort on your part is a fool's dream. In extreme cases, it is actually a fool's plan.
Let's face it - nobody knows you yet!
Finish creating pages for your web site is not the end. In fact, it is only the beginning. Just as completing your schooling is not the end but the beginning of your journey in the world beyond the walls of your classroom.
Unfortunately, a big number of us seem to think that our main battle has to do with the difficulties to understand HTML and creating the web pages....
