Your Questions About Low Cost Franchises

Laura asks…

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?
I am on a low budget. I want to start an easy business to make extra money to supplement my income. Forget about Jazzercise, it’s old and too expensive. Any suggestions?

barry0912 answers:

My girlfriend just started a Belly-Dancercise program and she is making money. It is easy, low cost program that combines easy, modified belly dance moves with music and exercise. The entire concept is fantastic.
Also, Belly-Dancercise is not a franchise — it’s better than that because she does not owe royalties or fees. She teaches Belly-Dancercise in her house and the local gym is adding her program too. Another cool thing is that we want to take a cruise and she is looking into teaching the program on the ship. I think the professional package is under $200 (a special).
You can find it here: http://www.bellydancercise.com or at Belly Dance College: http://www.bellydancecollege.com Check them out.

affiliate marketing through facebook?

Im new with affiliate marketing and recently came across a video on youtube about affiliate marketing on facebook, and the guy says all you have to do is go to clickbank, find a product and click the like button. then when it comes up on your facebook news feed and people click it, it redirects them to a website where they can order it. and if they order it, you get your commission.
is this legit? is it this simple? thx 🙂

also, anyone recommend any good websites etc, for free, where it teaches and shows you a step by step plan to affiliate marketing? thanks! 🙂

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Steven asks…

What kind of marketing strategy that apple follow to market their iPod and iPhone???

This question is always in my head and I need an answer. I really consider them the smartest company ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

barry0912 answers:

The marketing strategy behind the ipod and iphone is ease of use, you can simply see and touch, and the all in one features, you don’t need anything else.. Your phone, pager, music, videos, are all in one. And you can access the Internet from it also. They have lots of memory so you won’t run out.. Most mp3’s etc have limited memory, they also target the young adults
although the 2nd answer has good points there are a few things that go against normal marketing methods, yes it’s people that sell things, but if the product is bad, no person can sell it. Products do sell themselves if they are marketed right. Ipod does not use a person to sell but the product instead. And being the first to market something is often the key to the products success. Being 1st and unique is easier than being 2nd and trying to compete with the first product. And people don’t buy products simply because they are surprised, they buy for different reasons, need, desire, price, are all considerations. The 2nd answerer lists selling techniques for salespeople not marketing methods for manufacturers

Chris asks…

define marketing?

barry0912 answers:

If your definition of “marketing” embraces Internet “marketing,” then read the following strategy.

You may want to consider some simple algorithms which, when observed and committed in designing of a website with placement of various critical metatags that can surely achieve a high search engine presence and increase Internet traffic to your website. These metatag strategies work well with published webpages at Google and Yahoo.

Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based website, make sure to fill-in the property entries such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can be readily indexed by search robots.

A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text, is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots are unable to properly classify textual material.

Placement of Metatags:

A ranking or search order does take place with Google and Yahoo and it begins with the “Title” metag which should consist of no more than 65 characters separated by commas. The “Title” should describe in generic terms, the goods and services, followed by a location from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state. The placement of a domain name which is not generic within the “Title” is not appropriate, unless your domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

The second metatag is the “Description” which is usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which best describes one’s goods and services.

And the very last category – “Keywords” are also somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries which could be mistaken as “spamdexed entries” which is defined as the loading, and submission of repetitive words into a particular metatag category. “Spamdexing” when discovered on a webpage and reported to Google’s spamreport.com can result in the elimination of your website from their search directory.

Here’s an example of a very highly-placed website on Yahoo.com: Begin with the search query “pizza downtown los angeles.” It will bring up some 1.4 million+ websites as results. Check out where “Pizza Next Door” is ranked. It’s in the Top Five! Again, Pizza Next Door’s high web presence was achieved by proper web design and placement of relevant metatags according to Yahoo’s publication guidelines.

Good luck!

Internet Revolution???????

On the topic of Internet Revolution or Digital Revolution, is it possible if you can give me some internet sources? (links that talks about internet revolution through bbc, fox, mbc, ect)

I can find articles that explain WHAT internet revolution IS, but i can’t really find articles that talk about their opinions on internet revolution, like pros or cons. Thanks!

barry0912 answers:

Try a search like this using Google News:

“internet revolution” opinion

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws&q=internet+revolution+opinion&oq=internet+revolution+opinion&gs_l=news-cc.3..43j43i53.2755.6543.0.6825.27.10.0.17.1.0.147.1021.6j4.10.0…0.0…1ac.1.oYyXw4Gy97I#hl=en&sugexp=cpsugrccggmnoe&gs_rn=14&gs_ri=psy-ab&tok=_0bl2-O6mUsd9mEWNXQnCg&ds=n&pq=internet%20revolution%20opinion&cp=30&gs_id=40&xhr=t&q=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion&es_nrs=true&pf=p&gl=us&tbm=nws&sclient=psy-ab&oq=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion+&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.46865395,d.cGE&fp=55b25e68d9baa2dd&biw=1366&bih=643

Your other best option would be to use your local public or college library databases (such as National Newspaper Core [Proquest], EBSCO Newspapers, Opposing Viewpoints, etc.)

It may help your search of the open Web or of the databases if you can use additional related keywords in your search. Words that might signify the *kind* of opinions you’re looking to find.
Globalization
free markets
online generation
freedom
outsourcing
specific country names
censorship
the list can be extended as far as your vocabulary and time to search allows

For more ideas and/or sources open a chat with a librarian near you.

Who owns CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal etc…?

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

David asks…

Marketing/Graphic Design?

I’m about to start my freshman year in college and am enrolled for a marketing major. However the type of work I would like to do is actually creating the ads and product designs etc, as I am a very visual and hands on type of person and only like to complete work that I can see the fruit of my labors (such as landscaping). So graphic design seems like a must. Would it be a major in graphic design with a minor in marketing or a major in marketing with a minor in graphic design? Any other info/suggestions you might have about this line of work would be wonderful. Thanks

barry0912 answers:

I would go for a “major in marketing with a minor in graphic design”.

Graphic Design jobs are limited compared to marketing jobs. Keep your options open to a wider market is the best way to go.

I have a Degree in Computer Science but now am Involved in Internet Marketing almost all my time. Graphic design is virtually 1-5% of my time compared to 70-90% of my time involved in marketing.

Cheers!
