Internet marketing strategies are fundamental for your business success



Internet marketing strategies are not just for the business 'superstars' or the 'go getters' or the big corporate companies, or businesses with large marketing budgets, it means anyone who really wants to achieve the pinnacle of success in their particular business venture.

So that means 'YOU'! And it means 'YOU' if you are in direct sales, retail sales, home business, network marketing……… in fact if you are in business at all you need to be considering a range of options for marketing your business on-line.

The strategies you use should be those that will work best for you and your business!

Anyone in business today should seriously consider including internet marketing strategies as a key component of their overall operational plan.

And it's not just me who's saying this!

Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft had this to say:



"If your business is not on the Internet, then your business will be out of business."



Now, I'm sure you don't want to be out of business!

Therefore I would suggest that you take these words of wisdom seriously.

Then there's Business Week Magazine - now they should know a thing or two about business success right?

Here's what they have to say about how internet marketing strategies provide a platform for anyone and everyone who wants to profile their business. And not only does the internet provide a very effective vehicle for this purpose, but it is possible to do so at minimal if not zero cost. This is very significant for business in general!



"The cost of publishing has fallen practically to zero……This turns mass media upside down. It creates media of the masses."

"Your customers and rivals are figuring blogs out. Our advice: Catch up…or catch you later."

Business Week Magazine



Now the bottom line here is this………

Internet marketing strategies are many and varied, and a great many of these options will NOT break your budget. In fact some of the options available can potentially 'make you money'! Now that's a turn around, right!

Instead of wondering how you can possibly afford to do any marketing of your business, particularly if you are starting a new venture, you can actually find ways to turn your marketing efforts into revenue producing income streams that can then be used to reinvest in your marketing budget so you can drive your business forward.

Now that's a new spin on funding your marketing plan!If you haven't heard the term before, you're going to hear a lot more of it going forward………

This new phenomenon of making money on the internet while at the same time marketing your business is often referred to as "affiliate internet marketing". Affiliate internet marketing is a completely fascinating topic in it's own right and is totally deserving of a completely separate web page………so you'll see more on that later…


Q - Why are internet marketing strategies so fundamental for business success today?

A - Because quite simply……the internet is where the people are!

The following statistics might shed some light on this question.

  • According to Forester Research, online sales will continue to grow by 11% in 2009
  • According to Jupiter Research, online video marketing will QUADRUPLE in 2009
  • According to e-marketer, online search marketing will continue to grow by 14.9%

Now those are pretty impressive figures………

If you are already in business or maybe considering a new business venture……… wouldn't you want your business to be part of this amazing growth potential?

I know I certainly want my business to be part of this incredible online business opportunity, which of course is one of the reasons I am developing this website alongside a number of other internet marketing strategies.

The fact is simply this………

Making money on the internet
Most people go online today for just about anything you can think of. So if you are in business it makes very good sense to be where the people are!

What better place to find your potential customers but where they are turning up in the millions each and every day, 24 hours a day.

And guess what?

Just some of these people will be looking for what you have to offer them. It's up to you to use a range of internet marketing strategies to attract those people to you. When they recognize that you are offering real value, they will find you in their droves and you'll never have to chase down customers again!

Because today the internet is for everyone and for every purpose imaginable, it is the perfect place for anyone in business to have a presence!

buying online
No longer is the internet used only by large companies or for simply just marketing products and services.

The internet is a veritable gold mine for:

  • Research
  • Education
  • Socializing
  • Building relationships
  • Sourcing products and services
  • Making purchases
  • Promoting and advertising
  • Marketing and brand awareness
  • Selling products and services………

Just to name a few………the list is endless.

As a business owner you want to have a slice of this pie, and there are enough pieces for everyone!


Q - Why is it important to implement internet marketing strategies in YOUR business?

A - Because it assists you to establish the brand of 'YOU'!

If you're in business then you need customers, it's that simple!

So if you need customers in order to not only stay in business, but move forward, then you and your business need to be where the people are, and that's on the internet.

However, the internet is a very big place………how on earth do you find customers in your target market, and more importantly, how do they find you?

online business relationships
How do you stand out from the crowd?

It's quite simple really………

You do what all the 'star players' have done for years, even prior to the days of making money on the internet.

You establish your brand………in this case The brand of 'YOU' and 'YOUR' business!

Now let me just clarify one important point here………

When I talk about establishing the brand of 'YOU', I really mean 'YOU'!

I don't mean promoting your network marketing or direct sales company or its products!

If you are presently involved with a network marketing or a direct selling venture you will know that the company you represent has already established their brand. Most network marketing and direct selling companies have professionals who do this for them. They generally don't want their distributors using their brand to market themselves and therefore have very strict guidelines around the use of company trademarks and logos by independent distributors.

So the only way to avoid any issues with your network marketing or direct selling company is to completely avoid using any reference to that company and its trademarks in your personal marketing initiatives. And to be perfectly honest, it doesn't help you or your business to do this anyway.

Remember, you are in business for yourself so the best thing you can do is see yourself as an independent business owner, not just a 'glorified sales rep' for your network marketing or direct selling company.





The only way you can be a true business owner is to establish your own brand, one that your customers will recognize and always associate with real value.



Your customers are interested in YOU and what YOU offer. They want to know about your particular area of expertise or experience, anything you can offer that will assist them to get what they want. So it is really all about YOU!

If 'YOU' are a known brand then the customers will sure find you, and that is exactly what you want in order to achieve your true business potential.


Q - So, HOW do you establish the brand of 'YOU'?

A - By using a wide range of internet marketing strategies to create a web of content that gets 'YOU' noticed all over the internet!

This positions 'YOU' to become an irresistible customer magnet!Now, what would that mean for you and your business?

If you have customers finding 'YOU', you are immediately in a position to assist them with possible solutions for their problems. Maybe those solutions could be products or services offered by your network marketing company, maybe it's products or services you personally offer, or maybe you can point them in the direction where they will find the best solution for them and their needs.

At the end of the day, if you provide:

  • Exceptional value and integrity in everything you do in business, you will build a list of happy customers who may or may not necessarily buy from you, but they sure will recommend you to others, and that's got to be a bonus!
  • Impeccable service to all your potential customers, even if they don't access your products or services immediately, they may well come back in the future because you served them with integrity and provided exceptional value.

It's all about becoming a TRUSTED ADVISOR and SOLUTIONS PROVIDER in your particular niche!That's one sure fire way of attracting customers to YOU!

By using the various marketing strategies available to you on the internet you can 'brand yourself' in such a way that you become someone people trust. As a consequence you have the potential to become a true customer magnet!


Q - So, how to do you go about integrating internet marketing strategies in to your business marketing plan?

A - You need to determine which strategies will work best for 'YOU' and 'YOUR' business and give them a bit of a 'test drive'.
