Your Questions About Internet Marketing Blog

Helen asks…

UK specific internet and marketing books?

I am looking for UK-specific books on the following (all the ones I have found are American) either indivdually or ones that encompass all (apart from cover letters, which is for something different)
Cover letter writing
Blogging
Search engine optimisation
Social media marketing
Can anyone recommend any? Much appreciated. (I am definitely not interested in any tailored to the American market)

Instead of learning the internet marketing from books, I suggest you to find blogs. Blogs give you much fresher information about the mentioned topics. But if you want to learn from books, just check out Amazon.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Services

Carol asks…

Do programs like TrafficSwarm really work or are they a waste of my time?

I am an internet marketing newbie. I have two sites that I want to promote, www.howland.ws and www.dennishowland.ws. Are there ways to get traffic to my websites without spending tons of cash on advertising?

barry0912 answers:

Yes,there is my friend..I’d suggest building links to wherever you would like searchers to land. If your category pages are the most useful, link there – if the articles are most useful, link there.

The main purpose of these links is to get higher ranking with search engines when someone types in a relevant keyword phrase.These keywords will send visitors searching for information on a specific topic to your website and allows you gain a new reader or make some money from whatever affiliate program or ad scheme you are running.

I’ve recently set up several websites for some friends and link building was my main concern because I needed links for the webpages to be indexed and start showing up in the search engine. I did also use the free ebook course i got here http://tinyurl.com/237cvqj to optimize my list building

On the other hand,TrafficSwarm systems are not fool proof. People can cheat, meaning, you could have someone running a program that ‘views’ your site, but it’s a program not a person, taking away ANY chance of a action happening.It is time consuming sitting behind your desk surfing other people’s sites.It also kills the bandwidth, and for South Africans, that’s a problem.
Aside from that your subscription rate, even though you will receive subscriptions, is lower than through advertising mediums,cause these users are users that want traffic for their websites in exchange and aren’t necessarily interested in your products and services.Your increase in ranking only lasts as long as you’re a member of the system. As soon as you stop using the system, the users disappear and you drop in rankings again.

Robert asks…

How much return on investment can I expect for internet marketing efforts?

Is it unreasonable to assume that a paid bundle for ad/tweet that reaches 1 million users, probably gets actually seen 500,000 times, clicked through 50,000 times, and assuming I have a great landing page and a relatively cheap service at $20, gets purchased AT LEAST 50 times?

50 purchases for 1 million potential impressions? Reasonable?

barry0912 answers:

Hi, in theory this sounds good and reasonable. In practice, you have to be extremely careful. If you reach for untargeted audience, the ROI can be very bad.

Do you have the sources to target the audience for free? If not, you have to calculate your costs.

For example, you buy 200 gigs in fiverr, each gig targeting 5000 people, you spend 5$ / gig. This is already 1000 $. If the audience is targeted, and you do get your 50 purchases, you earn 20$. ROI is 0.

For Google ads, the cost per click (CPC) can be everything from 0,4 $ to eternity – you have to analyze this in forehead.

Let’s assume your CPC is great and you pay 0,4$ times 50,000 = 20,000. If I were you, I would say – I don’t think so. Absolutely does not worth it.

The best way is to make return on no investment, meaning spend close to nothing and get great returns. There are ways to do this – you need of course the knowledge, the time and the practice.
