Did LGN Revolution merge with another online company this week and who was the other online marketing company?

I heard LGN Revolution a top online marketing company was making a major announcement today to its members as to it purchase or merger of another major online marketing company.

barry0912 answers:

The news today is that LGN Revolution a top online marketing company, that makes available one of the lowest entry level and best compensation plans in the industry has purchased another leading online marketing company, EDC Diamond.
LGN Revolution’s advantage over other online marketing companies is that for as little as $200.00 you can have a new state of the art, full functional website with autoresponder, weekly training meetings for new and experienced marketers, and much much more. With LGN Revolutions superb mentoring program and built in residual income stream, it makes the decision process to join LGN Revolution a no brainier. If your looking for a online marketing business to get involved with and make some serious money this is the opportunity to look at.

It is affordable and right now much more attractive as a business. This new purchase by LGN Revolution will enhance its position in the making money online business market.

Complete details of the acquisition have not been revealed at this point according to James Ward CEO of LGN Revolution, he mentioned that details still needed to be worked out to make the change fair and equitable for both companies. In his communication with LGN Revolutions members during a live webinar Tuesday night he mentioned LGN Revolution would be utilizing most of the products from EDC Diamond.

EDC Diamond’s products now consist of hundreds of titles, worth thousands of dollars, delivered in the form of videos, CDs, books and software titles that are both inspirational and instructional.

Linda asks…

Internet Website Marketing Ideas?

I own a small internet web maternity clothing shop. www.hautemamacouture.com I get almost no business to it at all. I tried paying for advertising with search engines but I had too small a budget (spent $100 on 4 different engines/month). I also have the same items in a store on eBay. That’s where I make 99% of my money. However, with their recent announcements of fee increases, they should just change their name to FeeBay and their changes to the feedback policy that will not allow a seller to leave negative when warranted, I can no longer afford to do business on there. I spend about $500-$1,000 in eBay fees a month but I make about $4,000 a month. How can I shift some of this around to promote my website. I am on a very limited budget and have no idea how to get people to go to this website and buy. Thanks!

barry0912 answers:

Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it’s easier said than done.

You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Sharon asks…

I have entrusted to take a class on general marketing, What are the techniques of general marketing?

I wish to know about the tricks, techniques, ideas and methods to promot the small scale products in to market?

barry0912 answers:

For a marketing plan to be successful, the mix of Product, Price, Promotion, and Placement must reflect the wants and desires of the consumers in the target market. Trying to convince a market segment to buy something they don’t want is extremely expensive and seldom successful. Marketers depend on marketing research, both formal and informal, to determine what consumers want and what they are willing to pay for. Marketers hope that this process will give them a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing management is the practical application of this process.

Most companies today have a customer orientation (also called customer focus). This implies that the company focuses its activities and products on customer needs. Generally there are two ways of doing this: the customer-driven approach and the product innovation approach.

In the consumer-driven approach, consumer wants are the drivers of all strategic marketing decisions. No strategy is pursued until it passes the test of consumer research. Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs of potential consumers. The starting point is always the consumer. The rationale for this approach is that there is no point spending R&D funds developing products that people will not buy. History attests to many products that were commercial failures in spite of being technological breakthroughs.

The next big thing is a concept in marketing that refers to a product or idea that will allow for a high amount of sales for that product and related products. Marketers believe that by finding or creating the next big thing they will spark a cultural revolution that results in this sales increase.

In a product innovation approach, the company pursues product innovation, then tries to develop a market for the product. Product innovation drives the process and marketing research is conducted primarily to ensure that a profitable market segment(s) exists for the innovation. The rationale is that customers may not know what options will be available to them in the future so we should not expect them to tell us what they will buy in the future. It is claimed that if Thomas Edison depended on marketing research he would have produced larger candles rather than inventing light bulbs. Many firms, such as research and development focused companies, successfully focus on product innovation. Many purists doubt whether this is really a form of marketing orientation at all, because of the ex post status of consumer research. Some even question whether it is marketing.

Diffusion of innovations research explores how and why people adopt new products, services and ideas.

A relatively new form of marketing uses the Internet and is called internet marketing or more generally e-marketing, affiliate marketing or online marketing. It typically tries to perfect the segmentation strategy used in traditional marketing. It targets its audience more precisely, and is sometimes called personalized marketing or one-to-one marketing.

Marketing is an ongoing process of planning and executing of the marketing mix (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) of products, services or ideas to create exchange between individuals and organizations.

Marketing tends to be seen as a creative industry, which includes advertising, distribution and selling. It is also concerned with anticipating the customers’ future needs and wants, which are often discovered through market research.

Essentially, marketing is the process of creating or directing an organization to be successful in selling a product or service that people not only desire, but are willing to buy.

Therefore good marketing must be able to create a “proposition” or set of benefits for the end customer that delivers value through products or services.

Its specialist areas include:

advertising and branding
communications
database marketing
direct marketing
event organization
global marketing
international marketing
internet marketing
industrial marketing
market research
public relations
retailing
search engine marketing

James asks…

Has anyone ever found a work at home business on the internet?

I mean one that actually works and pays you? I know there are many out there–but I also know many are scams to get your money. I’d love to find a business I could do from home. The only training I have is nursing and also corrections–hardly internet business material! I’d prefer a legal business also!

barry0912 answers:

Hi,

Nice day to you.

Why not you consider to start your own website and start doing your own Internet Home Business.

This is the best way for you to avoid from scams.

To start a Internet Business for your own is not a hard job as what you think.

I’ll divide my answers into few section. Wish this answers can give you some reveals how to start your own online business and bring you to success.

Answer 1
Do you have any ideas in what kind of products or services you are going to sell for your online business?

My suggestion is, find somethings you are really interesting with it and you can pay fully passion with it. Otherwise you will give up very very soon. Many successful internet millionaires start their online business with their own interest.

Example
-Sport website – they love football, NBA, Formula One, etc.
-Travelling hot spots website – they love travelling.
-Food recipe website – they love cooking.
-Entertainment website – they love music, movies, idols.
-Pets website – they love animals.
-Loves website – they are experts in dating.
And many more.

Start today, think what you are really interesting in?

Answer 2
Make sure the products or services you are going to sell with an existing huge market. Do the market research before you start your business. A business won’t make money even he has a perfect product or service but there are no market require for that product or service.

There are many low cost online softwares can help you to determine whether your business with an existing hungry market or not.

Answer 3
Create a website.There are many online experts can help you to build up a business website just within 1-2 weeks time. You no need to know anything about web design or programming.

Just let them know what kind of business you wish to start up, they will help you to create all the business features and tools on your website and make it looks professional.

Answer 4
Now you have a best product to sell but your business still can not earn money if you don’t have a good marketing strategy. Takes a look at McDonald. McDonald is not selling the best burger in the world, but he own the most franchises all around the world. His successful secret is applying an excellent strategy into his business but not selling the best burger in the world.Get the online supporting team to consult your business step by step to success.

Wish this opinions can help you.

Wishing you success.

P.s : I have to make my explanation in short summarize here. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you be willing, you can read my real story and experience in how do I start my own internet home business and use it to earn money for me. Feel free to email me a blank mail with the subject “Real Story”. I will share the story with you. Chriswwy789@yahoo.com

David asks…

internet market?

How many internet market is there where you can sell your cds or books? I know amazon ebay and loot how many mroe out there is there on this giant internet?

barry0912 answers:

Well, the best place to sell your products is your own website, because you can also build an email list, have a blog where people subscribe to your rss feed…

Amazon.com is a great place if you already have a website (and email list) and a book or some product that is tangible. For example joe vitale sold more of his books than harry potter in amazon.com only because he had a email list and a little network around him (he did joint venture deals with other website owners)…

Read this article: http://www.freetomanifest.com/become_millionaire.html (this is about internet, real estate and stock millionaires). The main important thing you need to realize when it comes to Internet is that you need to network and form relationships with other website or blog owners who can definitely help you to create the buzz.

Joseph asks…

Some tips on how to start with this marketing?

I am currently entrusted the position as manager of a particular business that is not doing particularly well at the moment. The main reason for this is that the service being offered is very unique and new… and also not very well known. The previous owners had abandoned this business due to their poor planning and design strategy. And despite the newspaper advertising, there aren’t alot of people coming, and it can be expensive. I put considerable effort designing a particular website but even that is not doing very well either. The rest of the managers, at present, are either waiting for people to come in at the business, but they haven’t really formulated an appropriate strategy. I personally think that the marketing for this is going to have to be low budget, very well researched, well planned, and require innovation to some degree. But I don’t feel motivated. How do I get started? Where do I begin? i have no expertise in marketing, economics or business.

barry0912 answers:

If the service is new and novel, it may be appropriate to court the local TV news team to give an interview or demonstration of the service. Advertisements, endorsements and word of mouth are the main ways to reach a new audience. If it is a service which lends itself to demonstration you may try doing some mall appearances to acquaint people with your service. If is an Internet service visit chat rooms, and forums that cater to your prospective customers. Introducing a new product on a low budget it difficult unless you can tap into some free air time or get a celebrity to give you a push. There are some real tricks to Internet marketing, if you do not have a budget to hire a professional, there a lot of free resources on line. Best of luck The PracticaL Mentor.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.
