Mark asks…

What does this mean as a marketing plan?

So this guy is explaining a marketing plan for GM volt because they have been loosing money as we all know. but i do not get it what does he mean by a relationship with facebook. how can they help

“Speaking of engaging with consumers, reconsider your approach to Facebook. I find it hard to believe that GM marketers cannot partner with Facebook management to create both paid and unpaid solutions that engage consumers on what is unquestionably the most effective social-media platform.

I’m sure the Facebook leadership team values and understands the category. Seems pretty simple to me, and the amount being spent is minuscule as a percent of total measured media.”

The link is to the website of Autonews, an auto industry magazine, and consists of a former GM executive giving marketing advice to GM. Facebook and other internet social media are simply part of any corporate marketing plan in today’s world. All companies do social media marketing.

Volt is definitely not losing money. The Reuters news article that proclaimed Volt’s losses made some very basic accounting errors. Developments costs of a car are typically amortized over the lifetime of a vehicle, not simply one year. Any car would look stupidly unprofitable if you did that. A rebuttal of the Reuter’s article by another former GM executive is below:

Richard asks…

should public library Internet be filtered?

barry0912 answers:

That delves into censorship of the independant information network. My opinion is no, only because it really won’t matter soon, at least in the US. The Internet in the US is being made to adopt the market standard soon, silencing independent websites, including independent news sources that up until now, have been free from the censorship of any governing body, or their controling interests.

Now if you are speaking about things such as pornography, is uppose that if the library was NOT a public one then ti could be done, though the nature of a library being part of a public institution sort of negates the possibility of it having the right to any OPINION regarding such materials, from a literal standpoint. Now, it has been done in some states in the US, as we are transitioning into a different form of government right now that will allow for this. A Federal Police State allows for the norms and social standards deemed acceptable by the ruling party/parties to be impressed passively upon the public body, as the public body would no longer be the ruling body. A voting system will still exist, but only because the appearance of choice is nessecary to maintain order in our “culture”.

So I guess the answer is yes, and no, and eventually yes. Hahaha.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Carol asks…

Web marketing?

Are there degrees/courses available in web marketing? And are they worthwhile? By web marketing i mean Search Engine Optimization and such..

barry0912 answers:

There are many SEO companies that offer training programs. In addition, some universities and institutions offer certificates in Internet Marketing or Internet Programming. However, the principles behind Business Management and Marketing are similar to Internet Marketing. That said, a conventional marketer cannot be successful in internet marketing without extensive knowledge and research of the ‘net.

So I would recommend you to visit seomoz.org, and other similar SEO blogs and websites, and read all of their articles, read their blogs, take their quizzes and tutorials. At the same time, a certificate in Internet Marketing or a Bachelor’s in Business is helpful to make you successful – but many successful Search Engine Optimizers and Marketers did not have any of these credentials, they learned from real life experience.

I did a certificate in Internet Programming and I won’t say it wasn’t worth it, but it was very expensive and in hindsight I shouldn’t have spent that much money on it. Be very careful of fraud schools like CDI.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Services

William asks…

Cheap Internet Service?

I am looking for a cheap internet connection. I have a laptop, but no availability to a phone line. My family is struggling with money right now and I cannot afford much more than $20 a month. If I could find something cheaper, that would be great. Does anyone have any ideas?

By the way, I’ve already browsed a little bit on search engines and I’m really hoping someone knows something that I don’t. In a free market society I would assume that, despite the obvious oligopoly problem, I would be able to find something affordable somewhere. Please help. Thank you.

barry0912 answers:

Check out your local public library which will have WiFi…Support your library by donations…Cheaper then private internet service

Nancy asks…

How does the internet improve marketing?

I need Webiste Reference too..
Thanks..

barry0912 answers:

The internet has made marketing inexpensive when examining the ratio of cost to the reach of the target audience. Companies can reach a wide audience for a small fraction of traditional advertising budgets. The nature of the medium allows consumers to research and to purchase products and services conveniently.

Therefore, businesses have the advantage of appealing to consumers in a medium that can bring results quickly. The strategy and overall effectiveness of marketing campaigns depend on business goals and cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis.
