What is the best and affordable way of Internet advertising?

We have a small company offering household budgeting and credit supervision and we would like to advertise on Internet. Does anybody know what is the best web site or company that provides services like that?

Have you thought about pay per click programs? The two biggest, I think, are Yahoo! And Google

A few free resources – check out the sources box for links:

1) Create a blog pertaining to your field

2) Use Yahoo! Local & Yahoo! Groups – Be sure to read the TOS for each one!

3) Write articles pertaining to your field and/or expertise.

4) Advertise on Craiglist

Also, consider signing up for an affiliate program. These programs enable you to advertise on other’s sites (your affiliates) and once a sale is made to you, your affiliates & the program are paid a commission.

I listed a few handy sites & articles relating to marketing, promotion & advertising. Here are some book titles that are relevant:

* 301 Do-It-Yourself Marketing Ideas: From America’s Most Innovative Small Companies by Sam Decker
* Off The Wall Marketing Ideas: Jumpstart Your Sales without Busting Your Budget by Nancy Michaels, Debbi J. Karpowicz
* Guerrilla Marketing for Free: Dozens of No-Cost Tactics to Promote Your Business and Energize Your Profits by Jay Conrad Levinson
* Entrepreneur Magazine’s Ultimate Small Business Marketing Guide: Over 1500 Great Marketing Tricks That Will Drive Your Business Through the Roof by James Stephenson

Hope that helps! I wish you much success & happiness in all your ventures!

Maria asks…

Where might I go on the internet to generate traffic to my blog site?

I co-admin a blog that updates everyday with new content. It’s been around for a while, and a sizable archive has built up. In the few years time, though, no one has actually visited the site. No surprise there, as there’s been no advertising for it. How could I start getting the word out?

barry0912 answers:

If your blog has a lot of posts, has been online for a while, and doesn’t have any visitors — whatsoever — you’ve probably done something very wrong. You don’t really need advertising (depending on your market), even the built-in ‘ping’ functions that most / all blogging platforms offer will do wonders to alert search engines to your blog.

When you’re done adding a new post, head over to one of the following sites:

http://autopinger.com
http://pingoat.com

and enter your site’s details, then hit the ‘submit’ button. At this point, search engines and third-party sites will be notified of changes to your blog.

However, be sure that search engines can view your site — too many times on self-hosted WordPress blogs people will accidentally set their privacy (on the dashboard, under settings I believe) too strict and tell search engine robots to ‘stay away’ from their blog. That could be a problem, too. Hard to tell without knowing your blogs URL.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Mandy asks…

What are some good online marketing firms for an E commerce website, mainly for PPC and SEO?

I started an online business recently and the problem I’m running into is that there are too many marketing choices out there. Before investing money into a marketing firm, I wanted some tips on how to go about choosing the RIGHT marketing firm. If you have worked with a particular firm, feel free to point them out. Don’t worry about how expensive or cheap the marketing firm might be. I want to know the different qualities of firms that are out there and how they work with clients. As stated in the question, Pay Per Click advertising and Search Engine Optimization is what I need help with.

Thanks a lot for your input.

I use a small company for my internet marketing. They do a great job and drive a lot of business to me. ( www.internetmarketingofsandiego.com ). However, they type of business you would use is up to the type of your business. I have a local business, and this business specializes in local business marketing (I don’t need to have people in New York seeing my website as much as I need people in San Diego to view it).

If you have a more national or global business, then you would need to use some type of internet marketing, email marketing, sms marketing, search engine marketing company that would be able to get you widespread marketing. You can always do it yourself (see seomoz.org) but it is very time consuming and meticulous to get it to work right). I only pay about $200/mo and receive about $18,000 in business using a focused marketing company.

Your Questions About Title Vii

Mark asks…

is settlement from Title VII case taxable?

Federally? In Massachusetts? Did the Civil Rights Tax Relief Act of 2007 (“CRTRA”) pass?

barry0912 answers:

Settlements from discrimination cases are taxable.
For discrimination cases, you may be able to net out the legal fees rather than having to itemize them.

The act you ask about was introduced, but never got any further.

Laura asks…

What is a quality web site design company in Rhode Island?

I need to create a website for my hotel and restaurant, but I don”t want to use a big agency. I’m located in Newport, Rhode Island, and am looking for a local company to help me create a site. They would probably also need to help me with internet marketing — stuff I know nothing about.

I’m a retailer in Providence and I’ve worked with a small company called Pirata Media in Bristol, RI. They gave me a lot of time and attention, and didn’t use any smoke and mirrors, like some big web companies do.

They know what they’re talking about too! They helped me with some video production I needed, as well as some pay-per-click marketing and search engine optimization (which I’ll admit I knew nothing about either).

Overall, a great company with professional, high quality work for an extremely reasonable price. Also friendly, and easy to work with. I highly recommend them.

This is their site: http://www.piratamedia.com

Good luck!
