Internet marketing question?

My first time using Y!Answers so here goes:

I would like to know where i could find data, statistics about how implementation of various features in a website affects its traffic and bounce rate.

More detailed: i would like to know what is , on average, the potential gain in traffic of an online shopping web site for certain implemented features: polls, quizzes, personal blogs.

Thank you.

barry0912 answers:

I highly recommend Marketing Sherpa; http://www.marketingsherpa.com/

They have very useful statistics and metric data on what you’re looking for. My suggestions is that you simply start implementing the features you mentioned one by one and measure them with web analytics. Statistics are useful, and should be used as a general guideline. Online shopping is a very unique beast; every industry, every niche and even categories within niches, will always present quite different behaviors and performances, which are highly influenced by demographics, seasonality and other metrics.

At our agency, we are constantly optimizing our client’s websites beyond search. Conversion optimization is a key factor when it comes to shopping websites. Polls, quizzes, blogs, reviews, testimonials, etc, all play a role in it, but don’t always apply to every site.

Make this part of your interactive marketing efforts and you’ll be successful.

e-marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Internet marketing, also referred to as online marketing or Emarketing, is marketing that uses the Internet. The Internet has brought many unique benefits to marketing including low costs in distributing information and media to a global audience. The interactive nature of Internet media, both in terms of instant response, and in eliciting response at all, are both unique qualities of Internet marketing.

Internet marketing ties together creative and technical aspects of the internet, including design, development, advertising and sales. Internet marketing methods include search engine marketing, display advertising, e-mail marketing, affiliate marketing, interactive advertising, blog marketing, and viral marketing.

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
marketing strategy
marketing plan
strategic management

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.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Services

Joseph asks…

what is internet marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Internet Marketing is the process of using the Internet to advertise and sell goods and services. These can be goods or services that you produce or source from somewhere else.

This can involve various techniques including pay per click advertising, banner ads, e-mail marketing, search engine marketing (including search engine optimization), blog marketing, and article marketing.

It’s a fast moving game and you need to keep up with current trends to stay on top. What was popular a year ago can be ineffective now.

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 Strategies

Lisa asks…

What are some secrets to network marketing?

I am planning to do network marketing, does anyone have any suggestions or hints or warnings? Thank you very much

barry0912 answers:

I have to say YES to Blaze8 answer and would have said: the secret is that you have to OWN the network marketing company in order to profit from it.

You should rather do AFFILIATE NETWORK MARKETING instead of dealing with network marketing, as it is straight forward and you are not married with a specific company.

What you need to know is a lot of MARKETING know how first!

The key for NOT BEING SCAMMED is know ledge.

DO NOT JOIN A COMPANY. Invest in yourself first.

What makes you money is SOLID Internet Marketing Know How.

If you do not know how to promote offers on the Internet, you will fail.
The way to make money online can be done in two ways:

1.) create your own digital products and sell them and get paid for it
2.) offer your service as web designer or marketer and get paid directly
3.) market OTHER products from companies that pay you a commission
this called AFFILIATE MARKETING

for 3.) which is in my opinion the best potential you need to do a research
on which companies you can trust, HOWEVER! – i you need the same know
how that is needed for 1.) and 2.)

You need to understand the marketing basics.

NO Product sells itself. Do not fall for stupid websites that claim
that their products sell literally “themselves”. (I personally even promote
a lottery network and people love to play lotteries, but you still need to know
how to read people that are willing to PAY FOR LOTTERY TICKETS!).

OK, you need to learn the following things:

1. How people move online – what is “traffic” – how do people find websites online
and buy there?

2. How to create a website that sells – this is a know how you need either to sell
your own OR other products. It is important that you understand that it is not so
difficult to create COMPELLING websites that make people WANT TO BUY from
you.

3. Learn psychological strategies and sales processes.

I CAN ONLY REPEAT:

without this know how you will fail with all companies,
whether they are legitimate or not.

Do not join anything before you have solid know how.
No magical program will make you reach, only getting yourself
to the point to know what you need to do.

HINTS TO GET STARTED:

1.) Learn how to manage yourself first
http://www.twittermega.com/time-management (free!)

2.) Learn the basics on marketing and Internet Know How

(those resources are not free, but solid)
be careful with a lot of “free resources”, they always
still want to sell you something are are never “independent”

http://www.twittermega.com/time-management
http://www.twittermega.com/affiliate-marketing
http://www.twittermega.com/webmaster

3.) Master the basics, then you can choose any product
or company and make money with them.

THERE IS SO MUCH CRAP OUT THERE, you need to
invest in yourself first and do not believe false claims of
websites that tell you unbelievable “over night” riches.
