What Is Internet Consulting?

Is it some thing like aligning business strategy with internet usage strategy – something which many sites claim ( Ihad gone through one called mag-corp dot com and find some thing like this mentioned there)
If the answer is yes — what woud be an appropriate approach to moving forward?

barry0912 answers:

Internet consulting is a broad term that is applied to the task of evaluating and developing strategies for businesses that wish to function on the Internet. The consulting may take the form of developing a retail interface and marketing strategy that functions in conjunction with a business with brick and mortar stores. Internet consulting may include the creation of a process to market business online.

Consultants may also assist in the creation of online sales tools that are used to support the efforts of agents or remote salespeople. Internet consulting may also apply to the selection of hardware and software components to assist a client in creating a general infrastructure that allows employees to access in house information, such as departmental newsletters or other communications.

In all its forms, Internet consulting is about analyzing the current status of the client’s online presence and assess what needs to be added, adapted, or replaced in order to help the client reach his or her goals for a web presence. The consultant normally begins the process by becoming acquainted with what the company produces in the way of goods and services. Assessing the current status of the customer’s online presence usually follows in short order.

What are film marketing strategies?

As Media work

barry0912 answers:

Here are the film marketing strategies.

1) The Internet (online marketing) makes it easy for you to promote your film even if you don’t know what you’re doing

2) YouTube (online marketing) is a social networking website that makes it easy to get promotion for the videos that you have. You want to start with YouTube because of the massive amount of traffic that this website receives.

3) Direct mail (offline marketing). You can purchase a mailing list from the SRDS (available at your local library) and find a list of targeted prospects who would be a great fit for your movie.

4) Word of mouth (offline marketing).

5) Paid advertising (online or offline marketing).

Mary asks…

I would like to learn more about the stock market, can someone tell me where to start?

I am interested in the goings on of the stock market. I would like to know how to decipher everything and possibly do some informed investing on my own. Can someone show me where to begin learning about it?

barry0912 answers:

Standard investment advice is that you should invest in a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, and money market funds. If you are like most people you will invest part of your money aggressively in stocks, and part conservatively in money market funds and bond funds. Vanguard has an on-line questionnaire which will give you an idea of how to do “Asset Allocation,” determining how much to put in each type of fund.

You want to buy a diversified portfolio of stocks as individual stocks are too risky. Highly knowleadgable people can buy a properly balanced portfolio, but most folks have a difficult time balancing things on their own. They will misbalance their portfolio by buying all small stocks or all growth stocks, or some other misbalanced assortment of stocks. Back in 2000, Some people bought all internet stocks; they got burnt when they all crashed together. You have to diversify across industries. Unless you know what you are doing, it is best to buy mutual funds. I like Vanguard.com, other people like Fidelity, TIAA-CREF, and DFA. Buy no-load, low cost funds.

If your company offers a 401K plan at work, try to invest the most you can. The money grows tax free, and some companies will match your contribution. Investing in a mutual fund IRA is also a good idea. If you have children, you may want to consider a 529 plan or other college savings plan that grows tax free.

I like index funds. Because of their broad diversification, you are less likely to have a dramatic drop in value. They also have the lowest expenses. For stock funds, I would suggest putting ~70-80% of your money in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund. And ~20-30% in a foreign stock index fund. However, there are many different opinions out there on what the best mutual funds are. Read the links below and form your own opinion.

If you have high-interest debt, like credit cards, it is best to pay this off first before trying most of the investment ideas above. You should also have 3-6 months of salary saved up as an emergency fund in a bank or money market fund before trying more risky investments.

Believing advice you get on Yahoo answers can be risky, so read these websites for further information. If you find it too confusing, contact a professional financial advisor. They will charge you significant commissions, however.

Asset Allocation Calculators
(Determining how much to put in stocks and how much into bonds and money markets is a personal decision depending on your financial status. These Asset Allocation questionaires give you a rough idea how to do this. I like Vanguard best, but try some of the other sites as well.)

You are right on the very edge of being banned from these forums for soliciting business — which is against the community guidelines.

Thus, the only answer I can give is “not here”.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Blog

George asks…

I want to start a blog site?

I have seen people having their own blog site, so am planning to create my own blog site. Regarding that i have some question.
1. How much money i need to spend as a initial investment.
2. Do i earn by creating a blog site.
3. How to make my blog site popular.

barry0912 answers:

I think you have used all three wishes.

OK 1 no money needed, you need to go to blogger, forget wordpress for now, if you have never blogged before you need to start with the basics. That way you wont get frustrated and will keep going with it.

OK 2 Earn money from a blog, well that should be question number three. I know you are eager to earn money with a blog but there are specific reasons why you should start to make your blog reasonably popular first. In a nutshell if you put advertisements on your blog before it is popular you can be penalized for it and earn nothing, and earn nothing for a long time. It’s best to get some regular visitors first.
(adsense)

OK 3 How to make a blog popular, very good question. If you can make a blog popular enough you can make some serious money from your blog. There are literally hundreds of ways to attract and put your blog out there so it is visible on the net. But to build a strong following you need to have a really good topic and excellent material on your blog.

If you want some more support on this, I can send you heaps of stuff to read which will get you on the right track, also some really kewl tools that will save you heaps of time. Just go to my blog and leave an email address and I will send you some ebooks on internet marketing.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Chris asks…

How is the best way to get Internet exposure for a group of restaurants to be seen and advertised online?

Need internet marketing campaign ideas or suggestions for ways to advertise or gain exposure to surrounding communities that restaurants are in or near.

How can these restaurants be marketed online to people inexpensively but effectively?

barry0912 answers:

Personally, I am convinced that any good Restaurant does not need to advertise (at least not very much) .. In my (admittedly limited experience) the best way to find a good Restaurant is to receive a personal recommendation and then go visit it ..

From the outside you can determine the following :-
What type of area is it in ? (opposite the nightly drunken pub fights ?)
How popular is it ? (compered to the one next door) – the good ones are soon packed out by ‘word of mouth’ ,.. The bad ones always advertise a lot and are always half empty … (until everyone in the local area has been there once .. And then they go bust)
What sort of ‘clientele’ is it appealing to ? (loud pop-music & lap-dancing ?)
What’s the menu choices ? (& prices ?)

Having made the decision to go in, it’s really then all down to the quality of food …

Having said that, I have occasionally used Business Directors to look up ‘take-aways’ on the web ..

Paul asks…

What do Internet marketers do about shipping?

When starting my own Internet marketing business online, what do I do in order to ship the products? Do I have to ship them out myself? What do Internet marketers do about shipping products to customers?

Thank you!

barry0912 answers:

I you are selling your own physical products online, then you organise shipping. If you are selling through dropshipping then you just include shipping in you markup price and your drop ship supplier organises shipping.

However, the majority of internet marketers operate through “affiliate marketing”. Where you promote somebody else’s products through an affiliate link and receive a commission per sale. The owner of the product organises everything. Affiliate sites include, Amazon.com (small commission), Clickbank.com (up to 75% commission, no shipping as all products can be downloaded). Paydotcom.com (same as Clickbank.com), JVZoo.com (up to 100% commission on front end products i.e. The vendor makes their profit on an upsell)

Hope this helps
