Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Robert asks…

What kind of jobs are out there for people who study psychology?

How many years of schooling and what jobs are there for people who were to major/ get a mastors/ phd in psychology and how much do they pay?

barry0912 answers:

I noticed that no one mentioned anything involving consumer psychology, which was my focus in college. I paired my psychology major with a business minor. This opened up jobs in consumer research and areas of marketing and development. You would be amazed at some of the doors a psychology degree can open. There are also jobs in the area of Human resources and social work that require psychology degrees. If you want to do consumer research you are going to want a master’s degree. Dr. Blake at Cleveland State University in Ohio is doing global research on internet shopping behavior. If this interests you the program is worth checking out. Be forewarned that this program only accepts about 6 people a year into the program.

Hi,
Yes, you can make money as an online Affiliate Marketer. I’m making money online as we speak. Have started Affiliate Marketing earlier this year in March. I was making about $100 to $200 per week. Then as I learn from other Super Affiliate Marketers out there…I started making more. As of August 2009, I’m earning over $1,000 / week as an Affiliate Marketer. The learning curve is different for each person, but if you take the time to learn about affiliate marketing, then the rewards will be there for you.
The best way of making money online without spending a lot money is to be an Affiliate Marketer. You don’t need a website nor do you need any products. As an affiliate marketer you will market products for various companies that will pay you a commission for selling their products. (Commission is usually from 50% to 75%). So you don’t need a website; you don’t have to call anyone to sell them a product; you don’t need to join any mlm; You just need to refer people to the site of their interests and earn a commission.
Where do you learn all about these products? Check out www.clickbank.com . This is a market place to find vendors who are looking for affiliates to market their products. It costs nothing to sign up with them and nothing to start.
There are so many online methods you can use to drive traffic to these various sites you are promoting. Some of these methods include: blogging, Pay Per Click (PPC), Article Writing, eMail Marketing, and much more. To learn more about these methods, I recommend the beginners to learn from experienced Affiliate Marketers such as Ewen Chia, Michael Jones, Mack Michaels, Bobby Walker, Adell Chowdhry, and Kris Trujillo. These are some of the true Affiliate Marketers out there with great success.
Only down side is cost of advertising and getting the words out. However, this is the only type of business where you can start part time and one day earn as much as your FT job. FYI..,I started this part time 6 months ago and within 6 months..I’m earning more PT then my regular FT job. Crazy..,but true, How much you put into, you’ll get out of it as well.
In addition, I also recommend learning from the Super Affiliate Marketers out there that can eliminate your time and efforts by teaching you how to market products for free and the various methods that are available for you to use. You can find more information on Affiliate Marketing at www.Super-Affiliates-Club.com.
Save yourself time and invest in yourself and learn and you’ll soon make money online. You can start making $100 to $200/day within the next 3 days, but you have to start today and learn. It can be frustrating, but the learning curve is shorter when you learn from an Affiliate Marketer guru. Yes..you can start even today after reading this post. It sounds crazy, but it’s all true.
Here’s my recommended steps to online success — 1) Learn from an Affiliate Marketer 2) go to ClickBank.com and find a product to promote. Very easy, but takes a little effort to learn the secrets of the gurus.

Good Luck,
Tony

Linda asks…

Internet Website Marketing Ideas?

I own a small internet web maternity clothing shop. www.hautemamacouture.com I get almost no business to it at all. I tried paying for advertising with search engines but I had too small a budget (spent $100 on 4 different engines/month). I also have the same items in a store on eBay. That’s where I make 99% of my money. However, with their recent announcements of fee increases, they should just change their name to FeeBay and their changes to the feedback policy that will not allow a seller to leave negative when warranted, I can no longer afford to do business on there. I spend about $500-$1,000 in eBay fees a month but I make about $4,000 a month. How can I shift some of this around to promote my website. I am on a very limited budget and have no idea how to get people to go to this website and buy. Thanks!

barry0912 answers:

Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it’s easier said than done.

You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

http://www.przoom.com/

http://www.newswiretoday.com/
http://www.free-press-release.com/

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article ” How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site ” http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
Google Base http://base.google.com
Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/…
Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/
Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Sharon asks…

I have entrusted to take a class on general marketing, What are the techniques of general marketing?

I wish to know about the tricks, techniques, ideas and methods to promot the small scale products in to market?

barry0912 answers:

For a marketing plan to be successful, the mix of Product, Price, Promotion, and Placement must reflect the wants and desires of the consumers in the target market. Trying to convince a market segment to buy something they don’t want is extremely expensive and seldom successful. Marketers depend on marketing research, both formal and informal, to determine what consumers want and what they are willing to pay for. Marketers hope that this process will give them a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing management is the practical application of this process.

Most companies today have a customer orientation (also called customer focus). This implies that the company focuses its activities and products on customer needs. Generally there are two ways of doing this: the customer-driven approach and the product innovation approach.

In the consumer-driven approach, consumer wants are the drivers of all strategic marketing decisions. No strategy is pursued until it passes the test of consumer research. Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs of potential consumers. The starting point is always the consumer. The rationale for this approach is that there is no point spending R&D funds developing products that people will not buy. History attests to many products that were commercial failures in spite of being technological breakthroughs.

The next big thing is a concept in marketing that refers to a product or idea that will allow for a high amount of sales for that product and related products. Marketers believe that by finding or creating the next big thing they will spark a cultural revolution that results in this sales increase.

In a product innovation approach, the company pursues product innovation, then tries to develop a market for the product. Product innovation drives the process and marketing research is conducted primarily to ensure that a profitable market segment(s) exists for the innovation. The rationale is that customers may not know what options will be available to them in the future so we should not expect them to tell us what they will buy in the future. It is claimed that if Thomas Edison depended on marketing research he would have produced larger candles rather than inventing light bulbs. Many firms, such as research and development focused companies, successfully focus on product innovation. Many purists doubt whether this is really a form of marketing orientation at all, because of the ex post status of consumer research. Some even question whether it is marketing.

Diffusion of innovations research explores how and why people adopt new products, services and ideas.

A relatively new form of marketing uses the Internet and is called internet marketing or more generally e-marketing, affiliate marketing or online marketing. It typically tries to perfect the segmentation strategy used in traditional marketing. It targets its audience more precisely, and is sometimes called personalized marketing or one-to-one marketing.

Marketing is an ongoing process of planning and executing of the marketing mix (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) of products, services or ideas to create exchange between individuals and organizations.

Marketing tends to be seen as a creative industry, which includes advertising, distribution and selling. It is also concerned with anticipating the customers’ future needs and wants, which are often discovered through market research.

Essentially, marketing is the process of creating or directing an organization to be successful in selling a product or service that people not only desire, but are willing to buy.

Therefore good marketing must be able to create a “proposition” or set of benefits for the end customer that delivers value through products or services.

Its specialist areas include:

advertising and branding
communications
database marketing
direct marketing
event organization
global marketing
international marketing
internet marketing
industrial marketing
market research
public relations
retailing
search engine marketing
marketing strategy
marketing plan
strategic management

Has anyone ever found a work at home business on the internet?

I mean one that actually works and pays you? I know there are many out there–but I also know many are scams to get your money. I’d love to find a business I could do from home. The only training I have is nursing and also corrections–hardly internet business material! I’d prefer a legal business also!

Hi,

Nice day to you.

Why not you consider to start your own website and start doing your own Internet Home Business.

This is the best way for you to avoid from scams.

To start a Internet Business for your own is not a hard job as what you think.

I’ll divide my answers into few section. Wish this answers can give you some reveals how to start your own online business and bring you to success.

Answer 1
Do you have any ideas in what kind of products or services you are going to sell for your online business?

My suggestion is, find somethings you are really interesting with it and you can pay fully passion with it. Otherwise you will give up very very soon. Many successful internet millionaires start their online business with their own interest.

Example
-Sport website – they love football, NBA, Formula One, etc.
-Travelling hot spots website – they love travelling.
-Food recipe website – they love cooking.
-Entertainment website – they love music, movies, idols.
-Pets website – they love animals.
-Loves website – they are experts in dating.
And many more.

Start today, think what you are really interesting in?

Answer 2
Make sure the products or services you are going to sell with an existing huge market. Do the market research before you start your business. A business won’t make money even he has a perfect product or service but there are no market require for that product or service.

There are many low cost online softwares can help you to determine whether your business with an existing hungry market or not.

Answer 3
Create a website.There are many online experts can help you to build up a business website just within 1-2 weeks time. You no need to know anything about web design or programming.

Just let them know what kind of business you wish to start up, they will help you to create all the business features and tools on your website and make it looks professional.

Answer 4
Now you have a best product to sell but your business still can not earn money if you don’t have a good marketing strategy. Takes a look at McDonald. McDonald is not selling the best burger in the world, but he own the most franchises all around the world. His successful secret is applying an excellent strategy into his business but not selling the best burger in the world.Get the online supporting team to consult your business step by step to success.

Wish this opinions can help you.

Wishing you success.

barry0912 answers:

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.

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.
