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 News

Michael asks…

Is there a real working automated Forex trader out on the market?

No scams or fake sites please, just real information and programs that you can access through the internet.

barry0912 answers:

The Federal government warns there are a lot of Forex frauds out there, and these Forex robots appear to be one type of these scams. If these robots really worked, there would be scads of articles about them in the Wall Street Journal and other financial publications talking about them. When I do a web search, I can not find a single reputable news article encouraging the use of Forex robots. The link below is a Federal website warning you about Forex fraud.

There are a lot of people on the Internet claiming they have done very well using Forex robots. These appear to be of two types. One is the outright liars. For instance, you might meet a person called “Zboy227” who says “I made a lot of money using ScamRobot2000, go to their website at ScamRobot .com/Zboy227.” The “/Zboy227” tells the website that Zboy227 has referred you. If you buy the product, Zboy227 gets a commission. He is only lying to you to get a commission.

There is a lot of luck in Forex. Sometimes you will run into people on the web who have tried a robot for a few days and have had some beginner’s luck with it. They start bragging about how well they have done. Later, they start to lose money, but they rarely get back on the web and talk about how much money they lost. People like to brag about their successes, but rarely talk about their losses. The result is that much of the feedback about these Forex robots is positive.

I may point out that websites that sell Forex robots admit there are a lot of scams out there. Of course they claim the other guy’s robot is a scam, but their robot works. If you do a web search on the words “forex robot” and “scam” you will find a lot of sites saying their competitors are scams.

I will admit I have not personally tested every robot out there, and I can not prove they are all scams. But I would be very hesitant to spend a lot of money on a robot without clear proof it really works.

Steven asks…

How can I learn more about my target market?

My customers tend to be middle class homeowners over the age of forty. How can I learn more about such a broad target market? Thanks for your responses, and have a great day.

barry0912 answers:

That Guy Drew,

A well-defined target market is the first element to a marketing strategy. I would like to appreciate your interest to study the target market. Learning about the communities, about the age you mentioned would be truly hard. Still, you may get it from the Internet, as some news letters.

Some articles would always help.

Psychology e-books would help us in this regard.

This link would help you may be. At least gives a hint to get along.

Good luck.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Nancy asks…

Do you think these Internet marketing tool reviews are accurate?

Do you think the Internet marketing tool and guide reviews on http://gradingwebmasters.com are accurate?

barry0912 answers:

It looks like they have a listing of programs that are good and you can use to compare.
However depending on how familiar you are with internet marketing, reviews like that might not be very useful. Any program that you purchase doesn’t provide you all the required marketing tools, because they specialize in a few aspects only.

Internet marketing tools can be broadly classified in two categories:
1. On Page & 2. Off Page factors.

On Page – meaning it is on your page – factors like: Keywords in your Domain name, Headline, Description, Content. You need to optimize this to get a high Google Page Rank.
If you are not on page 1 of google search it is harder to earn money.

Off page factors has mainly to do with the backlinks, links from other web sites. The higher the authority of the web site, the higher your page will be ranked.
Let’s say if your web sites has a link from you friend’s site that is a new site, you will not get much credit for this. But if you have a backlink from a site with a Page Rank of 8, you will be ranked higher.
So the key is not quantity but quality, it is something like if you hang around with popular people, you must be popular too. Google likes popular sites!
Some of the authority sites are Wikipedia, DMOZ and all .edu and .gov (education and government sites – however, they usually don’t allow links to commercial sites)

These are just a few things you need to know first. So don’t purchase any program until you are familiar with all the basics of internet marketing and are quite comfortable to do it.

To learn on how to build a website in your spare time and develop it into a profitable one, you can access the free training – Ebooks and videos – at http://www.internet-marketingtools.biz/

Once you learn the basics, then you are better equipped to choose the best program for you

Hope this helps

James asks…

Is it good to invest in online marketing in Southeast Asia and China?

I need reliable sources of information on the state of digital media in Southeast Asia and China to justify investing in online marketing there.

There’s no specific product or service in mind. This is about the state of online marketing in Southeast Asia and China in general.

Is it good to invest in it? What reliable information can I use to back this decision up?

barry0912 answers:

Know why Google retreat from China ?

I can tell you based on the huge population and rapid growth in economics, the internet booms prosperously in China and many Web companies retrieve unbelievable success here such as QQ, Baidu, TaoBao, etc. But unfortunately few foreign company among them.

There are many explanations including huge culture rift, weak copyright protection, strict news censorship, and so on. It is difficult to give you the reliable infomation — and you’d better not trust the data from Chinese goverment until you’re sure you have a good understanding of Chinese goverment — but Google is a good case for research.

barry0912 answers:

To make serious money self employed you have to become famous in your market

Learn how to write press releases Then do a bit of charity work helping someone fix their computer Then write a press release and send it to the local paper
Remember this item should be news worthy and have an interesting photo

I once had a two page spread in our local paper worth thousands in advertising
and a 2 minute feature on regional BBC TV news hitting millions of potential customers

You may also try a marketing network These are usually breakfast meetings where local traders promote you to their customers and you do likewise to yours

Remember that relying only on word of mouth is a dangerous marketing tactic as in a few months your customers will find someone else to talk about Your work will dry up and you will then blame the economy or something…

Robert asks…

Which company must be chosen to work on an investment research paper?

Currently working on an investment research paper as a part of of our requirements in a course. I am choosing between working the paper on a mining company and a universal bank.

The mining company is well-known, and I believe its securities are known and being traded world-wide. Its securities are included in the Active Stocks of the stock exchange of our country. Seems that I would be able to gather a lot of information from the internet, news, and other resources. My only problem doing research for it is that I do not know how to add some things related to the pricing of its commodities. I believe that the prices move together with the world markets.

The universal bank, on the other hand, is well known to the country. Its shares are not included in the Active Stocks. It seems to me that I have lesser resources of information than that of the mining company. I am a little bit familiar with the operations of a bank.

Please help me which of them to choose to work on the paper. Thank you. =)

barry0912 answers:

Mining companies own land or mineral rights in areas rich in mineral deposits. They extract ore (rock containing the mineral) And refine it into some pure commodity such as copper, aluminum, iron or whatever. All commodities trade daily on the New York Mercantile exchange just like stocks trade daily on the NYSE. That is the price that they can sell the commodity for on any given day. The stock prices of these companies tend to move in relation to the commodity price.

Banks on the other hand have depositors that deposit money. They take that money and loan it out at a higher interest rate. The interest spread is theoretically their gross profit.

There is lots written on the internet about the big mining companies so I would choose that company.
