Sorting Through the Internet Marketing Maze

By Rob Starr | Blogging

There are still people who think you only need to get a professional website put up and then let it work its magic online. These are the folks that think by virtue of the fact the site is on the web, all you’ll need to do is let it ferment like a fine wine and therein lies the path to success.

That’s just not the case. Having a well designed website is a good start, but no one will see all those carefully laid out plans unless you bring the whole package to their attention. Internet marketing is the right way to do that. All you need to do to get started is sort through the maze of techniques available today.

Here’s some ideas for you to consider.

  • You can’t get around having great content and that begins with professional text. There’s an old saying about how the more things change, the more they stay the same and that’s true where online advertising is concerned. As flashy and captivating as you can make a website today, the need to say something relevant is just as important today as it was all those years ago when print was the favored way to communicate.
  • Take advantage of everything that innovation has to offer. Remember, there’s lots of different paths you can try to get to where you need to be.

Variety isn’t just the spice of life—it’s a great way to have success where online marketing is concerned too. Don’t get pegged down into trying just one technique but try to remember you need to be aware of what works for you.

Of course, you need to keep track of how any and all of these efforts are doing and that means you need to have some manner of analytics pointing to the techniques that are keepers and those best suited to another enterprise.

I agree Rob, only having a flashy website doesn’t serve the purpose, now not only the content but good content is required for effective internet marketing. In addition to it social media will also play a big role in internet marketing. Fine crisp thoughts, good luck

Rob, I totally agree that quality content is essential. But tying in with your other points, quality content is pretty pointless unless someone gets to read it. Therefore, marketing your content, so that people can find it, is just as important.

I really liked the way you said, “Having a well designed website is a good start, but no one will see all those carefully laid out plans unless you bring the whole package to their attention.”

This is so true. Design has it’s own importance, quality content is of course the King as many say. However, without marketing and relevance, neither the good content nor a good design is going to help.

Your post added value to me and I appreciate you for sharing your views.

Thanks,
Kumar
