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 Company

Michael asks…

How can i use internet for marketing my products ?

barry0912 answers:

The Internet has also become a large market for companies; some of the biggest companies today have grown by taking advantage of the efficient nature of low-cost advertising and commerce through the Internet, also known as e-commerce. It is the fastest way to spread information to a vast number of people simultaneously. The Internet has also subsequently revolutionized shopping—for example; a person can order a CD online and receive it in the mail within a couple of days, or download it directly in some cases. The Internet has also greatly facilitated personalized marketing which allows a company to market a product to a specific person or a specific group of people more so than any other advertising medium.

Examples of personalized marketing include online communities such as MySpace, Friendster, Orkut, Facebook and others which thousands of Internet users join to advertise themselves and make friends online. Many of these users are young teens and adolescents ranging from 13 to 25 years old. In turn, when they advertise themselves they advertise interests and hobbies, which online marketing companies can use as information as to what those users will purchase online, and advertise their own companies’ products to those users.

barry0912 answers:

Google “SEO providers” or “SEO company” or something like that and your local Google search engine will rank the best ones on top.

One thing, for SEO you don’t really need any local company. Any company located anywhere in the world can cater to your needs, doing SEO does not in any way depend on location. So any company will do as long as they are good, have good clients that can tell you about the company’s quality of service and reliability.

Your Questions About Anonymous Content

Donald asks…

Are you content/happy with your life at the moment?

I’m sitting here on my computer about to do homework and this question just popped into my head.

are you happy/content with your life? Why? If not, why? What are things that could make it better? What would you wish would happen?

And since this is Yahoo Answers it is complete anonymous so no one will know you personally in real life.
interesting answers guys, keep answering

barry0912 answers:

Some of the great thinkers of my time believe that happiness cannot be achieved until close to death, and then looking back over your life…
Did you have all things good?
Were the good times better than the bad?
Were you in love with a woman, or in love with lust?

These are the questions that must be answered to be truely happy.

However, contentedness is different.
Most people think they arent content, until they are placed in a different living situation and see that the old one was better than they thought.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Blog

William asks…

Internet Marketing?

Does anyone have any tips that actually work for driving traffic to my sites?

barry0912 answers:

The best easy way to start getting traffic to your website would be to answer question at yahoo questions, and make sure your website is included at the bottom of each answer, like a signature. Make sure your website is actually related to the question that is being asked. Also do the same with the Google questions, you will get lots of unique visitors to your website. If you want to take it a step forward you can create a social profile on a website such as myspace. When you do that find the category that fits your business in the messaging forums and post about your business. This will bring targeted visitors. You can also post bulletins and friends and post on there page. That part takes longer and many people do not read the bulletins anymore. More free traffic? Do some really good search engine optimization, pick up so books and read on it, remember search engines love fresh content so try to build up a article directory on your website with fresh information. Remember people do not come to to your website to purchase, they come for the information, then if they like what they hear, and if they feel educated they will purchase from you. There are tons of free ways to build traffic, do research on the net and try to stay away from purchasing hits for your website, because most of the visitors are not going to buy anything, they were probably paid to visits your site. If you want more information feel free to contact me. I just started a blog, and in the blog I promise to make $1,000,000 in 1 year. Starting from ground zero. I will reveal lots of secrets to earning money on the internet. And of course I will not give away all my secrets or show all my websites because people tend to still information these days. Thanks for your time. And others may be wondering why I am giving information out for free? Its because there are millions on top of millions of dollars to be made on the internet, and im not afraid to share, im still going to make my money no matter how you look at it.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

Susan asks…

how do you go about finding investors for a completely internet based business?

Does anyone know where do you go to find investors to see if they might be interested in investing in your business? I’m planning to start up a new internet business which I think is pretty unique but I’m not sure how to find investors who maybe could help with marketing it and getting it known.

barry0912 answers:

Marketing and funding are completely different issues.

If you need additional funding to get your idea developed, you have a long road ahead of you. This would involve creating a business plan and a basic website (which you can do yourself), and getting in touch with another organization that can help you track down angel investors who may be interested in your deal. This is difficult because without a “prototype” funding companies will take up your time looking at your deal, but will almost never invest. Some sneaky funding companies already have “portfolio” companies they’ve invested in, and they’re looking to you for a free education and trade secrets they can apply to their own business. This is not fair, but there is hardly anything you can do about it, since it is you that needs the funding and it is almost impossible to get a potential funder to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

If, on the other hand, you’ve already done a substantial amount of work on the product and/or website so you can begin promoting it, there are a ton of ways to get your website “noticed”. Internet marketing techniques include blogs, news/press release submission to article engines, Google Adwords, Pay-Per-Click, email marketing, co-registration including paid solo ads, Squidoo, MySpace, search engine optimization (SEO), search engine URL submission, traffic engines, safelists, white papers, free ebooks with embedded promotional info, newsletters, etc.

Helen asks…

What companies offer the best cable and internet packages?

Im in the area of NYC looking to find the best cable and internet bundles for my dollar

barry0912 answers:

NYC offers top providers like TWC, ATT, Verizon and many more. As for who offers the best bundle all depends on your requirements, what speed you need on your internet connection and what your TV preferences are(sports, movies, news, etc). Remember the market is very competitive and most of these companies will allow you to customize your bundles based on your preferences.
