Internet marketing has more pros than cons. Nowadays, many traditional businesses are leveraging the advance of internet technology to expand their businesses.

Why is that? Here is the list of pros and cons using internet marketing.

Pros:
1) Simplest and quickest way to expand your business globally. Driving more traffic or visitors to see what you have to offer.
2) Automate your sales. 24/7. That’s the reason people say you make money while you’re sleeping.
3) Less headcount to operate your business.

Cons:
1) Be aware of the dark side of online marketing, particularly when operating pay per click advertising campaign. It will suck dry your wallet if not careful.
2) Information overload. No doubt, you will see lots of how-to internet marketing. Stay focus else you will go no where. You will just spending more money on information products rather than growing your business.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Vincent

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

John asks…

Do you live in one of the areas being hit hard by theives stealing plants?

I do. It has been all over the news here. Theives are jacking flower beds like crazy in my area. And I woke up this morning to find all of my rose bushes gone. Plants? I would have never thought that they’d be targeted. What about y’all?

barry0912 answers:

No, fortunately I do not. I suspect your stolen rose bushes will show up at a flea market or other seller’s venue. Personally, I’d be playing detective and when I’ve found my plants, I’d call the police immediately. Of course, the thieves may be selling them on one of the internet sites, too.

Sorry you suffered such a loss. I’d be steaming mad!

Where do you live? Where is this happening?

James asks…

What is the best book to purchase for a beginner to learn how to purchase stocks?

I would like to buy stocks over the internet, but I have no clue on what stocks to buy or how to do it.

barry0912 answers:

I am assuming that you are using “limited funds” to start “investing over the internet”…..but I am VERY CONCERNED with the “I have no clue on what stocks to buy..or how to do it”. Honestly, you are “exactly” the type of person who should NOT be trading/investing on your own…as another answer before me said “find a reputable professional”…it doesn’t matter what company he/she is with…their skill/knowledge and ethics are what matter most!!!

However…to answer your question…there are a HUGE number of books to “purchase”…..but if you’re posting on here…and you want to trade over the internet…USE THE INTERNET for what it was invented for…sharing knowledge!

BOOKS don’t “interact” with you…can’t let you “test drive” sample portfolios…backtest potential portfolios…learn about many different strategies/products, etc …..and cost you nothing more than you are already using for internet access.

Sooooo……Here is a “sample” of what I recently shared with a similar Yahoo Answers member……

This will be a fairly extensive listing of where to go to learn about stocks, bonds, personal finance, economic issues(stock related), etc etc etc……only because you sound like you earnestly want to know.

For STOCK/Mutual Fund/Options/Finance-related information:

**www.kiplingers.com (more “personal finance” than stocks…but that’s critical in life too…kiplinger newsletter and/or Kiplinger Personal Finance magazine!)
**www.fool.com (classes to sign up for, free, etc)
**www.seekingalpha.com (better for the “technical analysis” crowd)
**www.whispernumbers.com (professional and non-pro opinions…group think?…play it to your advantage?)
**www.yahoo.com (finance section…good site (that’s free) for tracking (delayed) your stock portfolio)
**www.msnbc.com (current “in-the-news” stuff)
**www.morningstar.com (mostly for funds…stocks too)
**www.dismalscientist.com (more MACRO-economic…for those who want to know “why, how…” things happen)
**www.888options.com (Great Options site, free options DVD and classes!)
**www.optionsmonster.com (Options site)
**www.CBOE.com (THE Options exchange, “Learning Center”/”Options Institute”=free classes!)
**www.lightbulbpress.com (easy to understand, quick read, booklets etc.)
**www.street.com (Cramer’s name to fame! “trader, not investor” related advice mostly!)
**www.horsesmouth.com (a stock/stock market barometer!)
**www.bankrate.com (good resource on rates, and much more!)

And…sooooo many more… I’ll save “financial Calculator” websites (for everything you can imagine, and many that you can’t) for another time!!! Oh, these are “off the top of my head”…..there are many others that I’ve gone “blank” on…and may add later, after I check my work computer (since I’ve saved the shortcuts on several, I don’t remember the actual addresses!…silly me!!!)

Study hard…don’t lose your money “guessing”…study/read first…then take a “gamble?” (pun intended)…and/or find an above average/ethical professional to do the work for you.

***Oh, yeah….all of the above information should be FREE for all/overwhelming majority of the information…AND “Most traders/investors” don’t know about them. Also, NEVER buy those newsletters, etc you’ll get “pitched”…use these sites…and think for yourself…or hire a “personal” advisor who knows you and what your goals, needs, etc are.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Forum

Richard asks…

What are some of the best ways to make money off the internet?

I have a bunch of website urls, was going to try some keyword arbitradge, ppc and affiliate marketing, but looking for more ideas….

barry0912 answers:

Too bad everyone is trying to make money off you by posting there affiliate links!!! Thats really funny. Anyway, if you want to make cash Go to different internet marketing forums, Check out what other people are doing. If you do not already have a website you might want to start off with affiliate marketing. Go to Clickbank, Commission Junction, Onenetwork, or all the other places, find out what you would like to market, Sign up for an affiliate id. You can market your products via-adwords (Please first do the adwords training on Googles site) This is the best free adword training you can get. Many people may want you to purchase there ebook on how to use adwords, forget about that just go to googles adword training for free, and you will get just as much information. If adwords is not your thing you can always go to different forums directly related to the product that you are marketing and become a member to the forum, Edit your signature file to have your affiliate link in it, and start posting comments.(not spam, stay on what ever topic that you are working on) And do not forget about overture PPC, advertise on there also with your affiliate links. Me personally I would say create a generic website on the topic that you are looking to market, create articles (Search engines love fresh content) And you can offer you products on the website. The key is to try to get optin-leads. Have a capture page that allows people to sign up for your newsletters, once you have a clients information you can always market products later on. Just remember do not spend all your money buying products that will teach you how to make money on the internet. People buy buy buy but never take action. If you do purchase a program, stick with it until you are making money and do not give up at all. What seperates real Internet marketers from the one’s who are making no money? Its the ability to create a project(or buy one) Stick with it and never give up on it. Anyway, I hope this helps you out a little!!! Check out my blog sometime, My goal is to make 1 million dollars in 1 year. I will not start my heavy marketing until jan 1st. And there will be lots of free information that you can use there. BTW if anyone every tells you you cant make 500K+ a year on the internet, its because they are BROKE and they have a weak money blueprint.

John asks…

Im a local artist..Can anyone give me any creative music marketing ideas on creating more exposure for myself?

I have read several marketing books and are just looking to see if anyone has any creative marketing techniques that would benefit me.

barry0912 answers:

First you should access your own friend network and show them a sample of your work. Then request that they show their friends to see if any of them realy like what your doing. That technique in networking. It should be realy usefull since your local and it’s always nice to hear someone from the area. Suprisingly though, there are people around the world who would also like to here your local music simply because it’s foreign. What you should do then is have it published online where upon you can make money from the internet. You should also post a link to your sales page and about your music in any forum and blog posts you make. That way you can market your product in a signature of something without much hassle. Furthermore, you could even go to the extent of some new angle. I hearrd there is a new way to market called weed-sharing. Unsure, so look it up. It’s like you make your musi free and you make money from advertiseing or something. Anyway..goodluck , and I hope your stuff sells!
