In the last twenty years, one of the most successful types of marketing, is internet marketing. Forbes Magazine reported that American Corporations spent $65 billion on internet marketing. But what is internet marketing?
What is internet marketing?
Internet marketing means that you advertise, raise the awareness of a product but, the way of doing so is not singular. It can involve a lot of different things, from sending emails, to SEO, and other means are created very often. For example, if you produce bags then your internet marketing would be to send e-mails, blog about it, and website design.
Types of internet marketing
As I said before, there are many different ways of internet marketing, which makes sense because internet is a vast space, with a lot of different people. But, the most used internet marketing ways are:
- Search engine optimized, or SEO;
- Social networking;
- Website design.
Keep in mind that these are not the only ways to do internet marketing. I named just a few that can be very useful in your journey. So, depending on the product that you sell, use some of the ways that I listed before that would fit the best for the product that you sell.
The best part of internet marketing is that it is for everyone. Companies use it, Non-Profit Organizations use it, even small producers of agricultural products use it. So it is for everyone, and most of the people find it to be the easiest and cheapest method of advertising. You cannot compare the costs of internet marketing and the traditional ones, through television, newspaper, etc.
However, there are some “rules” when it comes to internet marketing, and if you don’t follow them, the image of your product will suffer. They are not rules, per se, but more like guidelines.
The “rules” of internet marketing
Do yourself a favour and make the content of your marketing well-written. There are many great products that we will never hear about because the content was weak. One of the hardest parts of this is that you must keep your content original, and of course, high quality. The content is the best way to make sure that your campaign will be successful. Without it, even if you manage to attract some traffic to your marketing, you will not be able to sustain it, and you will lose potential clients.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that if you wish that your effort pays off you must be persistent and you shouldn’t give up. Many people give up because their marketing seems to not pay off. Marketing is not something that happens over night. You must spend lots of time and a lot of determination. However, if you do that, eventually it will pay off.
Lastly, keep learning. If you want to come up with interesting content, then the process of learning should never stop.
These are just a few pieces of advice that I wish to share with you. Don’t forget, be determined and never give up.
