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?

relevance

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 Degree

David asks…

I would like to study Internet Marketing and Web design?

I would like to do a homestudy course of some sort that offers support and training in this area. I am in Australia don’t know if that matters. Can anyone help?

barry0912 answers:

If I were you, I would call up the local schools in your area (universities etc) and see if they offer marketing courses online. Many schools are going this way and you can often get a degree when you are done.

Secondly you can try schools like the University of Phoenix which puts a ton of courses online for people to study abroad. There are plenty of these “online schools” out there now and many of them do Internet marketing and web design since that course lends itself to the Internet pretty easily.

Just check their references, make sure they are legit, that they have a physical address and give them a call. See how they handle your call, are they professional? See if anyone else has had success with them. Do your research.

Good luck on the marketing course search!

Internet SEO Marketing Question?

What could be expected as a “normal paid conversion percentage” using clickbank to sell a training program to make money online in the cellular phone industry, purchaser buys training program online for S 49.50 that teaches them how to market a free website that they are given with the training Program.

Out of every 100 visitors from Quality online traffic, how many would convert with a solid offer that is backed wirh a 60 day money-back guarantee – that states if they do not earn at least $1000.00 in the first 60 days – by simply applying what they are taught in the training program they will receive a refund for training program.

How much of a difference would it make regarding “paid conversion percentage” if the offer was $19.95 verses $ 49.50?

barry0912 answers:

There isn’t any set percentage as such. It completely and completely depends on your content, copywriting, landing page, graphics, page rank and a list of other things. But lets say you get almost everything right to some degree, i am talking about from my experience, i get about minimum 1-4 % conversion percentage, out of 100 visitors.

Now let me clarify, getting 100 visitors is no parameter for your internet SEO marketing question. Im talking about 100 “ready to buy” visitors, who have done their research and are completely motivated to find the solution rightaway. As a rule i dont draw people looking just for information. I talk straight to the point and i write articles in and around the buying part of it.

Well, Internet SEO Marketing techniques also depend on the selection of your product you want to promote, the niche, existing competition and the quality of their respective landing pages. So in a way, there is no yardstick, its all upto your SEO and content writing skills.

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.

Susan asks…

Where can I get objective advice on an Internet advertising model?

I’m trying to find a qualified resource to provide some generic answers concerning a new Internet advertising model. Basically this model will offer potential advertisers a low monthly volume of extremely high-quality leads. The questions I have relate to a) pricing and b) marketing this new service. So, where do I look for this advice?

barry0912 answers:

I find questions that require a “deeper” answer get better answers in the Q&A of LinkedIn. Their Q&A attracts a lot of professionals in the field of marketing, advertising and in this case, direct marketing.

My suggestion is to look at some examples of this type of business model. Franchising brokers and directories, for example, offer this type of business model where the advertisers (franchisers) post their info for a fee and then they pay based on the leads that they get

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Susan asks…

How do I track down my clients with only a name and postcode?

It is only in the last couple of years that I have understood the power of internet marketing. Prior to that I did not even grasped the importance of keeping a list. Basically, I would like to track my previous customers through the courier company I have used over the years (Parcel Force). Unfortunately Parcel Force only show their names and postal code. How can I complete the address (ie their house number)? Thanks for your help.

barry0912 answers:

Look them up in the phone book (online) and hope that their name + postal code is enough to find most of them. (Postal code will narrow them down to an area within a city)

Helen asks…

Fear of the market; should a person avoid starting an online business when the economy is down?

I want to start an internet company offering speciality products that help people and relate to the travel industry. I get told that i’m crazy- that the economy is bad, nobody is buying anything, and travel is a joke.

barry0912 answers:

While the economy is definitely in a cycle that isn’t wonderful right now…don’t let anyone tell you there is ‘no’ business going on.

The travel industry is notable a lucrative one as people with money still travel…maybe not as often, but they do.

In this market, consider what is your USP (unique selling position) so that you can structure your product/service offering to have the greatest impact.

Also it’d be well advised to decide who your target audience will be, their demographics, etc. A great read if you’re going after those that still have cash to spend is a book by Dan Kennedy called “No B.S. Marketing To The Affluent”… It’ll give you a fresh insight into a vary interesting segment of the market and what they’re looking for and how to position yourself to sell to that audience.

After you’ve done your research, decided what your USP is going to be, get that domain online and start to marketing. Get those leads online and take them offline as quickly as possible (eg; SEO to your website…then get those customers on the phone or with something in their mailbox where it’s not as noisy as their email inbox).

Hope this helps.
