Keys to the Future of Internet Marketing

June 30th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

True writing skill is one key to the future of internet marketing for which no technology can offer no substitute.

There are a number of aspects of internet marketing which will be centrally important to the future in how business continues to adapt to new modes and means of communication.  Although many elements of marketing will continue to change and adapt to new fronts on which to reach one’s target audience, raw skill for writing is one key for which there will never be a substitute.  The ability to creatively employ language in any format is something that cannot be imitated by any machine or program, but is inherently human.  This does not, however, mean that even those with a great level of writing skill will not meet new challenges in adapting to the new modes of advertising which are continuously coming about in modern business.

Even the most skilled writers will need to adjust in the future to the shift of business to the internet as will many other fronts of modern business for internet marketing.  Writers must constantly remain alert and open to re-formulating their approach and adapt to new methods as necessary.  Writing for internet marketing as it is today already differs widely from writing for traditional print writing in that writers must adapt their styles to incorporate the requirements of Search Engine Optimization, include commonly searched keywords and organize language back into a manner which flows as naturally as it would had they not needed to work within the context of SEO keyword and organization basics.

It can be argued that Search Engine Optimization is nearly, if not as much so, important to the future of internet marketing.  This is because no marketing campaign can be successful if it is not seen by a large target audience.  Without SEO—and with the wide and massive variety of content that exists on the web—it is nearly impossible for an advertising campaign to succeed without the investment of a massive amount of financial resources, because it is very difficult to make one’s advertising stand out enough to appear on search engines when there is so much similar content on the web.

Beyond SEO comes another essential principle which has been centrally important long before internet marketing and will continue to be just as much of a key in the future of internet marketing—presentation.  Whether marketing on one’s own web site or marketing through an affiliate, one must always pay close attention to how their company is being represented and what kind of impression it will make on the minds of viewers who stumble upon it.  It must have appealing language, a clever graphic, or something unique that sets it apart enough to pique the viewer’s curiosity enough so that the viewer will be curious to learn more about the product or service. By mastering the essentials of getting the word of your company’s product or service out, appealing to target audiences and maintaining a strong reputation among consumers, one can ensure a strong chance of commercial success in the future of internet marketing.

Pitfalls to Avoid in Affiliate Marketing

June 29th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

You will want to be sure that your affiliate uses methods of promoting your product that entice, rather than annoy customers.

In addition to taking into account some basic principles of affiliate marketing, there are a number of pitfalls into which one can fall which must be kept in mind:

  • Poor Affiliate Representation – It is highly important to choose an affiliate who is not only reputable but will help boost your company’s reputation as well.  Reputations can be damaged by unwise associations.
  • Affiliate’s Product or Service of Little Relevance – Part of the idea of affiliate marketing is to reach your target audience by expanding your reach to affiliates who will draw likely customers.  If the product or service that is the subject of your affiliate web site has little or no relation to yours, this eliminates the purpose of direct contact with your target audience.
  • Overly Lengthy Description – While information must be thorough and credible, visitors are not typically drawn to ads which contain lengthy and complicated text descriptions.
  • Over-Aggressive Approach – Some of the more aggressive advertising approaches such as pop-ups and spam will serve to turn away visitors rather than entice them.
  • SEO Titles and Descriptions – Never forget that any success of any advertising campaign depends heavily on your ability to utilize keywords, titles and descriptions that will allow search engine users to find your result.

You will want to choose an reputable affiliate who will be as attractive to potential clients as your own company.

As with any form of internet marketing, there are some basic principles to keep in mind for affiliate marketing:

  • Choose an Affiliate to Represent You – Remember that with affiliate marketing, your affiliate will be representing you, so choose an affiliate who will represent your company the way you want to be represented.
  • Choose an Affiliate Your Target Audience Will Visit – If your affiliate web site deals with a similar subject, you are more likely to reach your target audience.
  • Keep It Brief – Since users do not usually come to web pages to read or click on ads, you must catch their attention with few words, or through other methods such as unique graphics.
  • Unique and Thorough Description – The description you include for your page will be very important in making a genuine impression upon surfers who find your search engine result.
  • Credibility – Stick with an approach which will seem enticing, yet realistic and believable to consumers in any statements or claims made.

Affiliate Marketing as a Marketing Tool

June 25th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Pay-per-click adds incentive for your affiliates to help promote your product or service.

One way in which affiliate marketing can be used as an effective marketing tool is through what is known as “pay per click”.  “Pay per click” is a mode through which the web site which hosts a company’s advertisement receives payment from that company for every visitor who arrives on the company web site by clicking the advertisement on the affiliate site.

Another way in which affiliate marketing can be an effective marketing tool is by offering selective rates for certain products or services through affiliates.  An example of this could be a discount travel offer for a hotel, resort or casino business offered through a company such as Travelocity or Expedia.

Pitfalls to Avoid in Viral Video Marketing

June 23rd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

While censoring comments on your video may seem like a good way to combat spam and trolling, it can also eliminate a valuable resource in constructive criticism and turn people off who may otherwise become followers.

With viral video marketing as much as with any mode of advertising, it is important to remember that there are some potential pitfalls which can be limiting of your success:

  • Stuffing Information – With what is typically a ten minute time limit to work within, you will want to make sure that your audience gets all of your main points in as short a time as possible.  You also want to be sure that your main points are clear, so avoid wasting time by going off on tangents at the expense of your main points.
  • Lack of Planning – With such a short time frame to work with, you will want to have a plan for how you will cover your main talking points.  Without a specific outline, it is difficult to effectively cover all of your talking points as clearly and specifically as possible.
  • Description in Text – Do not forget that this offers you the opportunity to elaborate on your main points where you may not have had time to do so in your video.
  • Keywords – Try to fit some commonly searched keywords within your title and tags.  It is very difficult to gain any recognition without a search result which appears high in the rankings.
  • Ignoring Criticism – Although it is obviously not necessary to pay attention to criticism that is not constructive or thoughtful, it is important to remain on the lookout for the constructive and intelligent criticism that may help you improve your approach.  It is better to take constructive criticism than to ignore all criticism and repeat the same mistakes as a result.

Viral Videos as a Marketing Tool

June 21st, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Facebook's video sharing feature is just one example of how viral videos can be advantageously utilized for internet marketing.

Two features of viral videos which make them a valuable marketing tool are the ability to post videos at no cost on sites such as YouTube, and the ability to share those videos at no cost through social networks.  If the video title, tags and description are implemented effectively, the video will be easily found and receive more traffic on sites such as YouTube.  Additionally, many of those who find the video appealing or interesting may decide to share the video using social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, which will help expand the audience of any company advertising by using viral videos at no extra cost for advertising resources.  With the advent of major video sharing sites and social networks, your audience can become one of your best advertising resources at no cost to you.

How a Travel Agency Can Benefit from Viral Video

June 18th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Many viral videos and media will somehow relate to a certain world location or even pique interest in a location with a background image of a unique location.

If a viral video relates in any way to the subject of a particular locality or tourism, a travel agency could take advantage of this by placing ads with special rate offers on the bottom banner of the video.  They may find inexpensive offers for hotels, restaurants, entertainment, and other local attractions and display one within the advertisement which most closely relates to the subject material of the video, so that people who search for the video would also be likely to be the particular individuals interested in what the advertising company is offering.  Doing so effectively can be a good way to see that advertising resources are used so that they will more directly reach the intended target audience.
