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

barry0912 answers:

Where do you live? You’re not gonna graduate and go straight into anchoring, trust me. I work in TV and started at the very bottom and you do have to put the time in. You’ll start as a P.A., making no money but learning a lot. After a while, you’ll move up to the assingnment desk, where you will check the wires, newspapers and Internet for good stories, then pitch them to Producers. After a while, you can move up to Field Reporter doing stories from the airport on Thanksgiving and the Post Office on April 15th. Be patient and the bosses might give you a chance on the desk during the weekend for the 11 PM newscast. You gotta want it though. Let them know when you interview that you do wanna get on the anchor desk and that you’re willing to work and learn. It may take a while ( a few years) but an on-air personality can make some good scratch, depending on what market you are in. Bigger markets = Bigger money. But love what you do, that is most important.

barry0912 answers:

It sounds like you tried to make money online and it didn’t work for you. Don’t let that stop you from succeeding in things. There are plenty of opportunities out there that you can succeed in. With the proper teaching, support and help anyone can succeed in business if they really want it.
I created a blog on my yahoo page on home based business opportunities. There are over half a dozen different opportunities from different industries. People that I know that do really well in theres and help others that are in the same industry. It also has a lot of information about the truth with scams, BBB and what you need to do to succeed in your home based business. Things to look for when collaborating with a company to see if it’s legit. Time factors etc. You also need to talk to someone who is involved in the industry and not just try and do it on your own. You should be able to have help.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

James asks…

What is the process of having companies buy ads on your website?

Internet marketing: You know the side ads on a website that help pay to keep the site running, what is the process involved in selling ads? How does that work?

barry0912 answers:

..assuming you want to do this from scratch

1. You must have a historic traffic report. This means you need to know how much traffic will flow through your site and be able to back up claims to advertisers. This will lead to the creation of your ‘rate card” – which is the amount each ad will cost and how much traffic people are buying.

2. You must specify the size/format of banners. I strongly recommend using standard sizes so that it’s easy on advertisers. Google adsense formats are the de-facto size standard. There is little reason to go off the standard.

3. You must set pricing based on your traffic levels, cost per click, or cost per action. To track this, you’ll need an ad rotation script with reports that let the advertiser log in and see their ad performance in a tansparent fashion. There are ad rotation scripts that lare less than $100 so don’t build it from scratch.

4. If you plan to just do period-of-time ads, you don’t need the script but you do need a lot of discipline in your process to be sure to put up and take down ads on schedule.

5. You need a way to accept payments. Ideally you have an auto-renew process that charges their credit cards on a schedule until they renew.

7. You need a legal agreement for advertising services.

.. Ad networks make this all easy but take almost all of the profit out of it. With your own setup, you get all the profit for the ad-runs.

…the hard part is finding advertisers. Most will expect a lot of traffic and costs between $20 and $30 per thousand impressions.

….if you don’t see 1000+ unique visitors per day ads are a waste of time in my opinion. Fill the spaces with high quality, relevant, affiliate program marketing that’s far more profitable.

barry0912 answers:

SEO or search engine optimization is what leads potential customers to you. When looking for anything on the internet you are using a search engine. You look at the descriptions of the sites or maybe just pick the first one. Most people don’t get to the 8th or 9th page. Just look at your own experience looking for something on the internet. So the key to any internet marketing company is getting their customers on the first page is SEO. Curious that your friends know this and you don’t. How is your company doing?

Laura asks…

Question for successful webmasters

Which is a better path to getting into internet marketing in your opinion; Buy a small, established website that has a monthly cash flow to learn how it all operates?, or, hit the forums and start from scratch and learn-as-you-go?

If you had to do it over, what path would you take?

 solar movie online

barry0912 answers:

With an established site, you have already some content (depending on quality though, you may have to scrap the whole content and replace it). The main benefit is the aging of the domain name, the number of links the site already got, and possibly, some established traffic

The problem with the established site is that you don’t really know what the previous owners did, and whether the site got penalties from the search engines. The worst thing you can do is buy an established site, and then find out you can’t monetize it because it has been kicked out of Google Adsense and other ad programs (once kicked out, you can’t reapply)

With a new site, you have the full control of what you do with it and you’ll be responsible for charting its growth. No penalties, nothing.

BUT — most new sites land in the sandbox so it takes time for it to be visible in the search engines (sometimes as long as 6 months to 1 year). That means you’ll work overtime to get traffic to the site, even spend more in terms of PPC for lack of organic traffic.

It has its pros and cons. But if there’s an opportunity to buy a clean, good site with a reasonable price, I’d go for that.

Jenny asks…

What Forums Can I go to to Find Free Lance Article Writers?

My website is about internet marketing. The number one question people ask me is about getting qualified writers (content writers, blog writers, technical writers, press release writers, etc.). They do not want to use an article writing service. They want to choose a writer and develop a long-term relationship without a middle man.

I decided to create a professional article writers directory to meet this need. I’m going to offer the following FREE services to the content writers:

A profile page on my high traffic internet marketing website, with unlimited space.
The profile page can include graphics and keywords so they will have an instant web presence.
I will advertise their profile webpage.
They will handle their own customers and set their own fees.

I’m looking for talented writers. They can be college students, professional writers, etc. They just need to demonstrate that they have writing skills. All levels of writers are needed.

For details look here: http://www.marketing-for-website-dominance.com/article-writers.html

I’m looking for the names of some good forums to post information about the directory.
