Internet marketing is simply one of the most incredible business tools to come along in the last dozen years. Internet marketing is for businessmen what Internet search engines and content sites are for writers or researchers: an source of almost endless possibilities. In the case of Internet marketing, that's endless possibilities for making more money.
Marketing on the Net is something that no business should fail to do in this day and age, just as no business should be without a Website today. However, the most effective way of doing Internet marketing is simply to run a home based business via the Web. Home based businesses are becoming ever more widely used as secondary sources or even primary sources of income for people as the Internet expands, more people get Web savvy and do Web shopping, and the communications technology infrastructure gets more advanced allowing for ever greater speeds and ever larger sized packets of information to be transmitted at one time. Why slave away for someone else or have to commute to an office when you can work from anywhere via the Internet and be your own master? Marketing on the Internet takes several forms, and all of them are inexpensive and sometimes almost free.
One of the best of these is the e-mail newsletter. With e-mail newsletter marketing, you give people the option at one of your online splash pages of signing up for your free highly informative and entertaining periodic newsletter, which gets delivered right to their e-mail inbox. Nobody who receives the newsletter will ever feel they are being spammed because they asked to get it. With the e-newsletter you show how authoritative you are by delivering free useful information relative to your niche business.
Always contain a call to action, more than one link to one of your product or service offerings on your website, and a special limited offer in your e-newsletter, too. With this you keep your name in front of people, you establish yourself as a trusted expert, and you make people feel that they are buying instead of being sold. And--you pay NOTHING for postage. Another online marketing technique that gets you great exposure for free is the podcast. Podcasts allow people to listen online or download onto a portable playback device a voice recording of yours. It can be a radio show or just a talk.
It's a more dynamic version of the e-newsletter and it's an especially effective way of reaching busy people who are on the go or multitasking all the time. They're not difficult to create and they are made for free. You can also archive these, as well as your old e-newsletters, at your website to give new visitors a taste of your expertise.
Online videos are another powerful way of marketing yourself online. Videos that you've created can be uploaded to your websites, online content sites, free video hubs like Video Jug and YouTube, and embedded in your e-newsletters. Make sure your videos do NOT start playing automatically; invite people to click on them to play them. Automatic-playing videos are a source of irritation and make people feel as if they're being manipulated.
Also, set your videos head and shoulders above others' by using professional video skins. These are very affordable and worth every penny as the Internet becomes flooded with more carbon-copy videos that have a lot of nothing to say. And, keep a daily or often-added-to blog with highly relevant key words and tags. Once your blog gets enough material it will get placed at or near the top of search engines and bring people to your virtual door. You can also monetize your blog using Google AdWords.
Again, a blog is free to maintain and is yet another way of showing off your expertise while giving people, if nothing else, a free source of information and entertainment to attract them and make them want to buy.
