Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Linda asks…

What type of company is this?

Hi. I really want to start my own company and have financial freedom. My company would buy and build web property (websites) that seem as if they could do better, fix them up (adding content, marketing, design, etc.) to hopefully gain some profit from the sites revenue, and then sell the websites after six months. I know people do this, website flipping, but I would like to start a company that does it. I am great with internet marketing, and my good friend from college knows a lot about investing. He wants to partner with me on this company.

What type of company are we (private equity firm, venture capital firm, media company, etc.)? If someone asks us what type of company we own and run, what do we say? Legally, what type of company are we?

barry0912 answers:

Legally you don’t have a company until you register with the state in any of the following form;

1. Limited liability company or corporation
2. Partnership company (created under a partnership agreement)
3. Sole proprietor ( One man owner)

Once you have decided on the name for the company, you need to register the name of the company again with the state. A registered company name may be renewed after a number of years (each state is different).

Since you mentioned that your friend wants to partner with you, your company can be registered as a Partnership company with two partners. In a partnership you have a general partner and the rest are limited partners or junior partners.

Private equity firm is an investment firm pooling private funds to invest. The legal entity of a private equity firm is similar to the legal form mentioned above. Venture capital firm is similar to a private equity firm but with a shorter span of investment objectives. When you mention media company, you mean the industry, not the company. Media is an industry. Just like investment is an industry.

Chris asks…

how is internet marketing a key part of the overall marketing effort?

can someone please help me

barry0912 answers:

Its no surprise to know that the internet has become the biggest media for advertising revenue.

So internet marketing should be the number 1 priority

Look at the statistics on this page, which shows a report from 2007 with Google and other internet advertising making huge gains in advertising revenue against some TV companies losing market share.

“When it comes to market share gains in advertising dollars, Google outstripped every other media company in 2007, whether you look at the Web, TV, print, or radio”

Your Questions About Title Ix

Betty asks…

Why do people say it violates Title IX if college football athletes are given a stipend?

Based on all of these incidents by agents I believe college football athletes of all schools and a certain division should be paid a stipend about the same maybe about $100,000.

It is a known fact that college football brings more revenue to schools than any other male sports or female sports so I find it silly for some to say it would discriminate against athletes of all other sports to play football players more when their sport brings in more revenue.

barry0912 answers:

Technically it wouldn’t, if you also paid some women’s athletes as well, although that would be difficult to afford. Title IX requires funding to fit the “Three-Prong Test” which goes as follows:

1. Prong one – Providing athletic participation opportunities that are substantially proportionate to the student enrollment, OR
2. Prong two – Demonstrate a continual expansion of athletic opportunities for the underrepresented sex, OR
3. Prong three – Full and effective accommodation of the interest and ability of underrepresented sex.

Credit must go to Wikipedia where I stole those from because it was easier than rewording it myself. Anyway, if any of those can be proven a school is in compliance with Title IX. It’s often stated funding for men’s and women’s sports has to be equal, which isn’t quite true, though that probably helps a school be considered in compliance. Scholarships usually are equal, which is why women actually have an easier time getting scholarships in most sports compared to men, as so much money already goes to football and basketball scholarships there are very few left over for other men’s sports, whereas women’s sports generally don’t bring in much money at all and can be more evenly distributed among the sports. And that, I think, is where this would fail Title IX. It would provide more money to male athletes female athletes wouldn’t have access to. Money taken in per sport doesn’t matter, gender alone matters. If money taken in per sport was the deciding factor most sports would cease to exist at the collegiate level because most sports don’t bring in a single cent of revenue.

(By the way, “underrepresented sex” really should be written “women.” Women’s sports can outnumber men’s sports and in fact SEC schools are required to have at least 2 more women’s sports than men’s. Men can be underrepresented with no penalty at all. But perhaps that’s an entirely different discussion.)

There are so many issues with paying football players it’s hard to know where to begin. Besides the simple fact schools probably couldn’t afford it, it would finally finish off amateurism for good in college football. It would probably actually negatively affect men’s sports more than women’s. So much money would be going to football other men’s sports would have to be shut down in order to pay for it and still not wipe out women’s athletics. It would potentially be the end of college athletics as we know it.

I personally would quit watching college football the day they pay the players more than they already get paid. Besides scholarships, you ought to see some of the things they get for free from schools. I had a roommate in college on the track and field team who had all sorts of duffel bags, notebooks, backpacks, etc. He could get directly from the school for free. If track and field athletes are getting that when they bring in a minimal amount of money I can’t imagine what the football players are getting.

Charles asks…

How does the elimination of 171 boy’s wrestling teams (Thanks to Title IX) equal “gender equality”?

Of course it’s all supposed to be about ‘proportionality’. So if more boys voluntary take part in sports activities due to equal opportunity, to enforce ‘equal outcome’ the colleges are either sued, or the teams are disbanded, to allow more girls to enter these activities. Now isn’t that quota messed up? Equal opportunities should not lead to equal outcomes being mandatory forced by law.

barry0912 answers:

They should disband student governments in the same manner if it’s all about equality as they are primarily populated by females.

Really I don’t think they should do for either but if you are going to do it to one; it should be done to both.

Internet

when it comes to your internet marketing campaign, the net is full of potential snags. Emerge unscathed by avoiding these 7 deadly sins
Entrepreneur, Jan, 2006 by Catherine Seda
THE INTERNET is always in motion. That’s both good news and bad news: You can immediately change your online marketing campaigns to produce better results, but your results can also take a nose dive if you’re not paying attention. Protect your campaigns from these costly mistakes:

1. LOSING AD TRACKING CODE: If a previously profitable ad campaign tanks, find out if your site pages embedded with ad tracking code have been accidentally replaced. Remind your web team to download site pages from the server before working on them.

2. FALLING TO REMOVE OUTDATED OFFERS: Keep track of your special promotions so you can replace the copy on any online campaign you’re running as well as the ad’s corresponding landing page.

3. MISSING DEFERRED ACTIONS: Not all prospects click on your ad and take action right away. Set your cookie length or your ad tracking solution’s settings for a minimum of 30 days to properly credit marketing sources.

4. IGNORING SUSPICIOUS CLICKS: Study the log files in your traffic reports if you notice a sudden spike from your pay-per-click campaigns. You might need to fix your campaigns, remind team members not to click your ads, or address competitors engaging in click fraud.

5. FORGETTING TO MONITOR COMPETITORS: When competitors change their offers, yours may no longer be compelling. Watch your marketing space to respond quickly with your own new promotions and maintain your lead flow.

6. NOT OPTIMIZING OFFERS: Stop running the same marketing message! Improve your campaign performance and reach new customers by continuously testing innovative offers. You’ll also maintain your competitive edge.

7. OVERLOOKING YOUR CONVERSION RATES: A tiny increase in your website conversion rate can make your revenue and profits skyrocket, so don’t focus exclusively on your marketing campaigns. Your site also plays a critical role in your marketing performance.

In your quest to grow your business by using internet marketing, respond to any warning signs, and maximize your current campaigns before you initiate new ones. You’ll improve your bottom line without spending a dime.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Carol asks…

What can I expect if I major in marketing?

What I’m wondering is if I get a bachelor’s in marketing will I have to work in sales as an entry level position? I believe that I’m a very creative person, and I like to work with ideas so I’m majoring in marketing. I know that what I really want to do is advertising but I don’t want to major in that because I feel that it may be too narrow, not sure though. I hate the idea of cold calling or trying to pitch a product, I did it for a while and hated it.

barry0912 answers:

Right now the Internet marketing industry is booming. Especially in the social media side. The way I look at it, if you can help companies build revenue online, then you will always be an asset.

Forget about degrees though, school wont be able to teach you what you need to know because the Internet will change before the class is over.

Not saying you shouldn’t get a degree, it will help… But in the end personal experience will always be more important with this.

Susan asks…

What type of job would I be looking at majoring in Marketing Management?

I’m considering majoring in Marketing Management. I’d like to know what type of job I’d have after graduating, its salary, etc., My focus would be on the gaming industry or the internet industry either which I could care less. All inputs would be great. Also, would marketing management prepare me faster as a ‘Marketing Manager’ than to say if I was just to major in Marketing?

barry0912 answers:

You could use that degree to make a fortune in pharma sales. Especially if you minored in chem, and possibly communications.

Paul asks…

Internet Marketing general guides?

I need some general help and guides about Internet Marketing and Online Business
anybody can help ?!

barry0912 answers:

There’s a lot of free information on the various marketing forums like ewealth, warriorforum, wickedefire (add .com)

Some marketing gurus have a generous amount of free information on their blogs, try googling internet marketing, affiliate marketing.

It’s a big field, asking a more specific question might help focus your direction.

Most people who venture into internet marketing fail, often dropping a plan just as it was about to pay off, marketing with paid advertising requires a lot of fine tuning, testing and more testing in order to see a profit.

If you were a successful brick and mortar business I would suggest looking into stompernet a training facility with a vast library of internet marketing information, (and some decent freebies) once priced at $800/mo, I think membership is now $197, still only cost effective for a serious operator needing to get up to speed quickly.
