Kindercold had some great advice. Beware though that with the Burn Marketing Method they do try to get you to buy into their monthly subscription.

There are some good sites out there with great information for sale. The trick is that you have to put in the work and time to make internet marketing work. I believe most people spend the money for these “systems” but, after reading all of the material and trying a couple of things, they stop and give up when they don’t get rich right away. It doesn’t work that way.

I belong to a membership site that has taught me a lot and given me some great tools. It has earned me a nice supplement to my normal income. I didn’t need to pay for the information, but it made the process of making money online so much faster then if I did all the research and trial and error on my own.

Having said that, there is a ton of information out there and it all just confuses most of us. What happens when you get a lot of varying info from different sources is “paralysis by analysis”. In other words you don’t do anything because you don’t know where to start. There’s just too much information.

I suggest that you go to the library and check out a book or two on internet marketing. Or go to the bookstore, buy a latte and read away. One of my favorite books is Moonlighting on the Internet by Yanik Silver. It gives a good overview of some different internet marketing avenues.

Good Luck

Mary asks…

Vietnam websites about internet marketing?

I need to find some Vietnamese websites that deal with internet marketing, e-mail marketing, or simply community-based websites concerning Vietnam. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
Thanks for the info on how wired Vietnam is… apparently not that much. Too bad you couldn’t provide me with some websites…. 🙁

barry0912 answers:

I do Web promotions in the U.S. And I’m currently in Hanoi, Vietnam for my wedding and to spend some time with my new wife.

Vietnam’s Internet infrastructure is very new, and traditional online marketing techniques used in the states may not be as effective here. Most of the Viet households don’t have computers and most of the Internet usage is done at Internet cafes. Therefore, search engines and online ads don’t penetrate the population as deeply as in the U.S.

On the other hand, most everyone here has an E-mail address. That in mind, E-mail marketing could be a very powerful online promotion tool as it is in the U.S.

Joseph asks…

How private/secure is the internet?

Just wondering, are websites allowed to keep tab on the sites you go, know your name from cookies or something etc. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT GIVING OUT FREE INFO ON CONTESTS or whatever. Just like… right now, being on any website, what information is being taking, etc.

barry0912 answers:

Kath, like it or not the Internet is the Wild West of data…anything goes.
For starters, how’s this for ‘right now’:
Yahoo! & Google breach of trust to it’s patrons reached a new low.
Both services submissively bowed to advertising conglomerates, by adopting ‘phorm’ inspired “targeted advertising”; a ‘data siphon’ method that directs your clickstream to 3rd party advertisers, and builds a portfolio on your surf habits.
This may make your browser display pop-ups which you have no control over, and may in fact do many other un-requested actions with your entire system.

Google itself has spyware.
From their Privacy Center page
(http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html)
“No personally identifiable information – We don’t collect or serve ads based on personal information without your permission.”
Notice the last 3 words…yet it is specifically an “Opt Out” condition!

And Gmail, once perceived to be ‘safe’, actually scans all your mail & then selects advertising based on the content. It’s “for your own good….”
http://mail.google.com/mail/help/about_privacy.html

“Google uses the DoubleClick DART cookie on our Google content network …”
These guys are the used car salesman of the internet, very ‘slippery’ characters burying their methods, details & opt out choices with layer after layer, page after page of non-sense & merry-go-round tactics plus non-functioning links, etc.
All I can say is keep trying & get as many of these tracking portfolios killed as you can.

Yahoo! Calls their invasion of privacy “Matched advertising”, and it stems from the ‘Network Advertising Initiative’ (NAI), a conglomerate of advertising kingpins and requires “Opt Out” to defray the advertising tsunami from Yahoo’s partners in this server based spyware/adware (and to stop them from creating a ‘profile’ of you).
“Opt out” sign in pages;
Yahoo here: http://info.yahoo.com/relevantads/
Google here: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html
NAI garbage here: http://networkadvertising.org/managing/o…
DoubleClick here: http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

**************
Yahoo has gone insane.
**CRITICAL RECENT DEVELOPMENT**
Get this: the ‘new’ Yahoo by default, allows your Yahoo! Contacts computers, to send to whatever 3rd party software they have on THEIR computer, information about you! Can you believe that!!?
This is something you must end ASAP.
Look in your mail account settings (ya, it’s buried very conveniently) and uncheck this box!

Go to your Yahoo! Mail: near the “Welcome (your name)”, tick the ‘Profile’ link; next page, upper right corner, tick ‘Settings’; next page, near the bottom is the box to uncheck.

This is spying, pure and simple.
And the deterioration of trust with Yahoo! Grows…it’s pathetic.

IMHO: the installation of the 3rd party data siphon servers, @ Yahoo & Google, et al, have for the last 4 weeks or so, been responsible for the Internet wide “glitches” and server interruptions, and is subjecting all users to massive invasion of privacy.

**********
Note: New US Court ruling “…the U.S. Federal Communications Commission that mandate telecommunications carriers must get an “opt-in” before disclosing customers’ information to a carrier’s joint venture business partner or an independent contractor.

The FCC “gave sufficient reasons for singling out the relationships between carriers and third-party marketing partners,” the court said in denying the petition for judicial review sought by the NCTA.”
http://tech.yahoo.com/news/nm/20090213/tc_nm/us_fcc_cable_court

But even this appears to be only a ‘suggestion’ from the court & may be good news; we’ll see.

Sharon asks…

internet security???????

hey guys,
been using for Kasper’s 2010 IS for quite a while now. I am thinking of changing my IS to something that doesn’t slow down my computer as much.
so basically can you list a IS that is close or better then Kasper’s in security, but doesn’t slow down my computer as much?
thanks,
Tim

Some System specs:

4gb ram
500gb hdd
intel core 2 quad q8200 2.33ghz i think?

barry0912 answers:

Norton Internet Security 2009 (NIS 2009) is currently the FASTEST internet security package (at 7mb memory usage only!) (beats kaspersky by 15mb)

Proof http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Review/127995,norton-internet-security-2009-believe-the-hype.aspx

NIS 2009 has the lowest system usage (therefore fastest) product on the market. With high a detection rate of 92% on par with Kaspersky.

Norton Internet Security 2009 is the Fastest (more proof)

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/index.cfm?newsid=104478

Also answerers must understand, a free anti-virus alone can’t fully protect a system.

By the time of answering this, NIS 2010 has just been released. Faster than ever and using new reputation-based technology, this eliminates the old signature-based scanning and opens new potentials for nexgen security.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Carol asks…

What can I expect if I major in marketing?

What I’m wondering is if I get a bachelor’s in marketing will I have to work in sales as an entry level position? I believe that I’m a very creative person, and I like to work with ideas so I’m majoring in marketing. I know that what I really want to do is advertising but I don’t want to major in that because I feel that it may be too narrow, not sure though. I hate the idea of cold calling or trying to pitch a product, I did it for a while and hated it.

barry0912 answers:

Right now the Internet marketing industry is booming. Especially in the social media side. The way I look at it, if you can help companies build revenue online, then you will always be an asset.

Forget about degrees though, school wont be able to teach you what you need to know because the Internet will change before the class is over.

Not saying you shouldn’t get a degree, it will help… But in the end personal experience will always be more important with this.

Susan asks…

What type of job would I be looking at majoring in Marketing Management?

I’m considering majoring in Marketing Management. I’d like to know what type of job I’d have after graduating, its salary, etc., My focus would be on the gaming industry or the internet industry either which I could care less. All inputs would be great. Also, would marketing management prepare me faster as a ‘Marketing Manager’ than to say if I was just to major in Marketing?

barry0912 answers:

You could use that degree to make a fortune in pharma sales. Especially if you minored in chem, and possibly communications.

wats the fastest internet browser.?

barry0912 answers:

Many people believe firefox www.getfirefox.com is the fastest browser, if you have broadband you can use this guide to make it even faster:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1299854/posts

*EDIT* I think the only people that find internet explorer faster at rendering pages are the people answering with internet explorer on this page.

Will people stop raving about macs? It’s boring already, he asked for a browser, not an entire computer with ‘free’ browser installed. Macs have no spyware because they operate so little of the computer market it is not viable to make spyware for them, not because they have amazing security measures.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Donna asks…

How does Internet marketing differ from traditional marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Contrary to popular belief, internet marketing does not differ too much from traditional marketing.

The internet affords us a faster and more convenient way to reach our target audience. It also expands our target audience to include those globally, where traditional marketing would be focussed more on local targets. Those points would make up the main differences.

One of the very exciting things about internet marketing is that it opens the floodgates for the everyday man or woman in the street to participate in an arena where they can own their own business, for minimal outlay and small ongoing costs.

When you cut through all the hype and clutter online, its very easy to see that the traditional marketing systems, focuses and requirements are still there. Its just that many enterprising folks have found a way to make things easier and faster, via the internet.

For those that wish to adventure into internet marketing, my most important piece of advice is to follow, or model, someone else’s success. There are plenty of internet marketers that have had sensational success, the only challenge is to be able to sort out the real from the make believe.
