Advertise from a customer perspective with a testimonial on how great the product is. Also, only questions are supposed to be posted in Yahoo! Answers, so search for someone asking for the kind of service that you provide. Otherwise, you could post on public forums of related interests.

Paul asks…

Is it better that one reads a book on the basics of Internet marketing?

Will this save them time and money?
Will it help them avoid making costly mistakes?
What are some books you suggest?

barry0912 answers:

Hi Christopher,

I would suggest that you go straight to the source- online!

I have been learning internet marketing for the last 5 months or so, and I looked into buying books, and I was disappointed with the selection- the problem is, the field is continuously evolving!

A book can teach you the very basics, but you’ll end up paying for information you can find for free.

My advice is to follow the experts, the gurus- Do a search for a specific topic you’re interested in, and you’ll get tons of specific blog entries and articles to help you out- the nice thing about internet marketing is how active and growing the community is.

If you already have a site, it’s great because you can experiment as you go and see what suits your needs best. If you’re starting from scratch, consider getting a free blog or other personal site that allows you to manage content personally. Otherwise you may feel lost, and the truth is, you don’t need a textbook- the key to the Internet is, it’s interactive. Textbooks can never compare.

Plus, you’ll often get more actual information per paragraph than most books will offer.

Depending on your goals, there are many ways to market online. You have to start with a site, and you should learn some basics on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) (I wrote a blog entry that offers some resources for beginners, I will add it below) – beyond that you have tons of options.

– Write original articles and submit to article sites (they provide good exposure!)
– Create videos and post them to YouTube and other video sites
– Write a blog and get it out there! (plenty of free sites)
– Make friends in the social network space (i.e. Sites like MySpace, Facebook and Twitter) that will help you spread the word
– Record a Podcast and publish to different podcasting sites
– Visit other sites, forums, etc and post comments where you think your product or service could benefit the person
– If you’re strictly looking for traffic, don’t be afraid of paid advertising or sponsorships

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

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

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.

Your Questions About Anonymous Mask

William asks…

How does the group “Anonymous” stay anonymous if they protest in groups?

It seems like it shouldn’t be hard to infiltrate an anonymous mask-wearing group. Are these just naive college kids in over their heads, is the “Church of Scientology” not as dangerous as claimed, or is there something I am missing?

barry0912 answers:

Scientology HAS tried to infiltrate the Anonymous protests. There are discussion threads dedicated to this kind of Scientology tactic at the Anonymous message boards on enturbulation.org.

Anonymous is not an “organization” as such things are generally understood. It has no structure, no hierarchy, no central leadership. It’s a collection of concerned individuals from all walks of life and from around the world who have come together to protest against the crimes perpetrated by the Church of Scientology.

The CoS certainly IS as dangerous as claimed. There are multitudes of people who have suffered tragic experiences during their involvement with Scientology. Read about them here:

http://www.whyaretheydead.net/krasel/
http://xenu.net/archive/personal_story/cheryl_s
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Library/Shelf/xenu/xenu.pdf

Here are more “bad experiences” with the cult including an illegal plot to infiltrate the government, brainwashing techniques, mind control camps, attacks on critics, and DEATHS caused by Scientology doctrine and members:

● Operation Snow White – Under this official program, Scientology operatives committed infiltration, wiretapping, & theft of documents in government offices. This program constituted the single largest infiltration of the United States government in history. Among the 11 prominent Scientologists convicted of this conspiracy was Mary Sue Hubbard, the wife of Scientology’s “prophet”.

http://www.lermanet.com/reference/77Granjurypart1.htm

● Operation Freakout – Their campaign of sabotage & violence against Paulette Cooper, the writer who published her research & findings on several cults, including Scientology. Scientology’s official plan: to frame Paulette, ruin her career & reputation & get her either incarcerated or locked up in psychiatric confinement.
The official plan: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Krasel/cooper/frk1.html
Her book: http://holysmoke.org/cos/books/scandal-of-scientology-cooper.pdf
More info: http://www.holysmoke.org/pc/pc.htm

● Fair Game – the Scientology policy detailing how the organization may confront & handle critics & perceived enemies. Here is a direct quote: “Enemies may be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.” Though they claim this policy is no longer in effect, Scientology still goes to great lengths to bully all known critics, opponents, “enemies”, etc, often through malicious litigation & character assassination, even going so far as to falsely accuse them of crimes.

http://www.solitarytrees.net/racism/harass.htm#start

● Physical & psychological punishment – Scientologists who “break the rules” while members of the “Sea Org” must subject themselves to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF), which includes regimes of harsh physical punishment, forced self-confessions, social isolation, hard labor and intensive ideological indoctrination.

http://www.xs4all.nl/~kspaink/cos/rpf/escape_2.htm

● Brainwashing & mind control – Scientology exerts control over its members by means of typical cult tactics, including but not limited to controlling information about internal doctrine & criticism of the organization, severely restricting social contact outside the cult (including the practice of “disconnecting” from family, friends & ex-members who question the credibility & trustworthiness of the cult & are therefore considered “suppressive persons” by Scientology), creating an “us against them” mentality by villainizing a specific out-group (for Scientology, it’s psychiatrists), & claiming all those outside the cult are dangerously unenlightened.

http://xenu.net/archive/personal_story/funkydonny.html

● Tax Fraud – One of the only reasons they enjoy “tax exempt status” on religious ground in the United States is because they bullied the IRS into a “deal” through extremely aggressive barratry (which is the offense of persistently instigating groundless lawsuits) against said government agency and its officials, and arranged to drop all 2,500 frivolous lawsuits only when an “agreement” was reached. In addition, Scientology’s lawyers hired private investigators to dig up any “dirt” on IRS agents which was then used to blackmail or publicly smear all “vulnerable” agents.

James asks…

Does using a Guy Fawkes mask as your avatar indicate homosexual leanings?

If a person uses a Guy Fawkes mask as an avatar, calls herself “Anonymous,” and asks a lot of gay troll questions, does that mean she is gay, or is she just a confused bi-sexual?

barry0912 answers:

There is no certainty in assuming she is either. She could also be a heterosexual into BDSM or latex, or she could be just a regular zoophiliac. Using a Guy Fawkes mask in any manner at all does not denote any specific sexual behavior.
Wearing black clothes does not mean you belong to the Addams family, does it now?
