How is Internet Piracy different than thieft?

If Im caught stealing a CD from the store, odds are I will recieve a minimal fine or even simply pay for the CD. Internet piracy carries a penalty of thousands of dollars per song downloaded, which is obviously more signifigant than stealing a hard copy.

Why the huge difference in penalties?

It used to be that i could buy a book and loan it to you and nobody gave a dam … Now in effect , they want to charge you for every person u let read the book as well as charge you each time YOU read it … Imo they just need to rethink the whole marketing strategy because their way of thinking about it and labeling 80% of the population criminals and pirates is archaic .. They need to move into the 21st century with the rest of us …

Joseph asks…

What is a good masters for a marketing undergrad?

I’m a recent graduate who has a B.S. in marketing from a state university and I’m considering heading back to school. I have a possible job that may or may not come through (due to sequestration) and I’m assessing my options. I was wondering what would be a good field of study (aside from an MBA, or M.S. in marketing) that would work for me considering my bachelors. I was thinking statistics…any other suggestions?

For the record, I did well as an undergrad: graduated with honors and highest distinction.
Totally screwed up my title, but you get what I was trying to say.

Additionally, I was thinking of possibly doing rotc in grad school, if possible, and trying to get into the army as an officer (I’m also considering OCS…but it’s all up in the air).

If you’re interested in a job in the marketing field, of course an MBA with a focus in marketing is the most obvious pick, and it’s a good choice according to research (see the link to MarketingHire.com , a job board that specializes in marketing and features articles with professional advice and trends). But marketing is undergoing a lot of change right now and big data is increasingly important as marketing professionals have more and more data input from things like internet marketing, interactive advertising, research, CRM, etc. Consequently, a masters that relates to data can be very valuable if you’re pursuing a career in marketing, as would an MBA in strategy. The marketing roles with the greatest amount of new hiring for 2013 tend to be mobile marketing, social media and data related, and its certain that big data is going to play an increasingly important role for all marketers in the future. IDC had a great study and presentation on how big data is transforming marketing, which considering your question, I think you’ll find worth reading. I’ve linked to it below.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Donna asks…

Time req. to receive MBA– Marketing?

I’m considering going to Grad school to receive an MBA, most likely with the concentration of Marketing. How many years, full-time, does it generally take a student to get that degree? For undergrad, the general consensus is that it takes approximately 4 years. Searching on the internet, surprisingly, hasn’t given me a clear answer for an MBA. Thank you!

barry0912 answers:

Traditionally, a full-time MBA from a good school would take 2 years. You are right, though. There are now thousands of schools offering MBAs, and many different formats in which it is offered. Some schools will waive classes that you may have taken as an undergrad, cutting the program down to as little as a year, while others will make you take another course in its place. Still, if you look at the basic full-time programs at the top MBA schools, they all take two years.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Michael asks…

What do you think of Internet Marketing college degrees?

Lots of colleges are starting to offer Internet Marketing degrees. Do you think those are worth anything in the real world? What do you think the employment opportunities are for people with those degrees? What do you think the future looks like for them?

barry0912 answers:

I am a firm believer that college is a very good thing, assuming you can pay for it out of pocket and not take out student loans and I honestly think an internet marketing degree is a good idea but it is not the only way to make six figures in internet marketing. In fact, many 6 figure internet marketers dropped out of school and made it work for them but it takes a very strong and focused person to make that happen. I personally have been an IMer for 3 years and only make 3000 a month in residual income and this is working part time and I have an advanced degree. I know I could do more but I personally choose not to put more time and energy in – cause I’m lazy. That said, I do believe a college degree can help you but only if you don’t have to go into debt to get it.

Robert asks…

Would you hire a marketing specialist with a Masters degree in Internet Marketing?

barry0912 answers:

You wasted 2 yrs of grad school on an “internet Marketing” degree?
That degree will probably be obsolete in 4 yrs

I can’t imagine there are any full time jobs for that job title – you will have to do project work and constantly look for new business and it will never pay that much annually
