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.

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

Sandy asks…

A good job for a liberal arts major thinking of Law School?

I want to take a year off after graduation to earn some money, study for the LSATs, etc. but I don’t want to waste my time working just any job. What might look impressive to law admission boards and/or is a good one-to-two year situation I might want to take advantage of?

I majored in English and Psych. I have internship experience in publishing and internet media/ advertising/ marketing.

barry0912 answers:

I would be a paralegal in a law fir, I’ll warn you though, many who do that before going to law school change their mind about going once they see what lawyers really do all day. But that’s all the more reason to take the job for an up close look.

Steven asks…

What is the future of low cost airlines?

i want the future of these upcoming low cost airlines .. whether they’ll work in future , how will their costs decide their future …

barry0912 answers:

I’m not rich and I usually use business class if it’s an overnight trip but I also nevermind using economic if it’s a decent airline. Personally I really don’t like low cost airlines- the service is pure crap, business class or not. I see them no future. Decent airlines get their fares lower every year and I think more and more people choose to use them, for the low cost- taxes go higher and it all becomes unprofitable. Personally I know lots of people who don’t like low costs, like me.
