Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Chris asks…

How is the best way to get Internet exposure for a group of restaurants to be seen and advertised online?

Need internet marketing campaign ideas or suggestions for ways to advertise or gain exposure to surrounding communities that restaurants are in or near.

How can these restaurants be marketed online to people inexpensively but effectively?

barry0912 answers:

Personally, I am convinced that any good Restaurant does not need to advertise (at least not very much) .. In my (admittedly limited experience) the best way to find a good Restaurant is to receive a personal recommendation and then go visit it ..

From the outside you can determine the following :-
What type of area is it in ? (opposite the nightly drunken pub fights ?)
How popular is it ? (compered to the one next door) – the good ones are soon packed out by ‘word of mouth’ ,.. The bad ones always advertise a lot and are always half empty … (until everyone in the local area has been there once .. And then they go bust)
What sort of ‘clientele’ is it appealing to ? (loud pop-music & lap-dancing ?)
What’s the menu choices ? (& prices ?)

Having made the decision to go in, it’s really then all down to the quality of food …

Having said that, I have occasionally used Business Directors to look up ‘take-aways’ on the web ..

Paul asks…

What do Internet marketers do about shipping?

When starting my own Internet marketing business online, what do I do in order to ship the products? Do I have to ship them out myself? What do Internet marketers do about shipping products to customers?

Thank you!

barry0912 answers:

I you are selling your own physical products online, then you organise shipping. If you are selling through dropshipping then you just include shipping in you markup price and your drop ship supplier organises shipping.

However, the majority of internet marketers operate through “affiliate marketing”. Where you promote somebody else’s products through an affiliate link and receive a commission per sale. The owner of the product organises everything. Affiliate sites include, Amazon.com (small commission), Clickbank.com (up to 75% commission, no shipping as all products can be downloaded). Paydotcom.com (same as Clickbank.com), JVZoo.com (up to 100% commission on front end products i.e. The vendor makes their profit on an upsell)

Hope this helps

A TV commercial
An article about the company in a city newspaper
An Internet advertisement
A phone conversation with an employee of the company

Which of the following can help you evaluate the performance of your ads and other marketing strategies?

Asking competitors what they think of your advertising strategy
Collecting secondary data about your target market
Asking customers how they found out about your company or product
Sending out a press release multiple times

barry0912 answers:

Theres no better trust than 1 to 1. But, your question depends on the power of the advert. Plus, phone conversations are next best thing to 1 to 1, but only if they know you are calling. We all expect a sales call dont we, and we all hate em. To evaluate performance of ads? Ask the people who bothered to react why they bothered? Ask as many people as you can what they think of you ads and put the info together to get an idea.

Robert asks…

Describe several B2B technologies and applications?

Scenario:

Your brother owns a gourmet food company named Grandma’s Treats, and he is faced with an interesting decision. He inherited your grandmother’s recipe box and adapted the recipes to accommodate his wife’s diabetes. You, your friends, and relatives couldn’t tell that his creations were low sugar, and word of his delicious baked goods spread throughout the community. Last year, he left his full-time job to produce and sell his creations to the public, caterers, and restaurants. Recently, one of his restaurant chain clients approached him to supply all of their locations. They also suggested that he could attract more customers and operate his business more effectively if he creates a website, advertises, and sells his “treats” on the World Wide Web. You have more business experience than your brother does, so you’ve offered to help him investigate this opportunity. Starting an e-business, or expanding a current business into the Internet, involves as much planning and risk
as starting or expanding a traditional business. Some of the things that you have to consider include:

The cost of the technology.
The design of the website.
The marketing strategies you will use.
The choices of what to sell and how to sell it over the Internet.
The advantages of online communication with customers and suppliers.
The risks of doing business on the Internet.
You start exploring alternatives and seek the advice of experienced e-business professionals. There is a lot to learn, and you have heard many stories about people who have started e-businesses (or traditional businesses) and end up failing because they did not have or follow a solid plan.
You will strive to understand some of the basic principles of e-business in addition to understanding traditional business strategies so you can make wise choices as you bring your brother’s business into the Information Age. The varieties of tasks you will pursue are the development of an e-commerce plan, the exploration of different technologies that are used competitively in e-business, Internet marketing strategies, security, and ethics.

QUESTION:
Describe several B2B technologies and applications, as well as describe several applications or ways B2C can use technology that Grandma’s Treats could utilize as part of an e-business strategy. Search the Cybrary and provide at least two research citations that illustrate examples of companies that are utilizing e-business strategies (e.g., B2B, B2C), and discuss how Grandma’s Treats could benefit from employing similar strategies.
