Setting Your Self Apart When Marketing to Internet Marketers

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

There may be a huge market out there, of business owners looking for informational products; but there also a lot of businesses out there who are catering to the needs of this market. To market your own informational product you’ll need to stand out from the crowd.

To do that, you will need to figure out how to bring your own uniqueness to what you’re providing in your business. There are some ways that they could be accomplished:

Niche marketing- Finding a specific group of business owners to market to; can increase your chances of getting your items chosen by the consumers.

Focusing Your Product Range. There are different ways of offering specialized products. You could cover the full spectrum of topics but only offer your information in the form of reports, for example. Or you could focus on one subject area, such as Private Label Rights content.

Authority Sells. Everyone wants the best information available and if you have special expertise in an area of business that can help in differentiating your products and services from the rest. You might establish your authority and credibility by stressing your working experience in a particular area of business, or by emphasizing your academic qualifications in a particular field.

Point of View- Sometimes giving a different point of view on a topic can establish your uniqueness and gain you a nice sharp edge on your competition. For example, maybe you have inside information on a particular topic. This could be used to play on the business owner’s desires.

Building Your Reputation. You can enhance your reputation and advertise the value of your products and services through social networking. If you can become a ‘name’ in a niche community or group, you will build ties and can even achieve a kind of celebrity status. People buy from people who are known and trusted in this way.

Broaden your horizons- Get yourself out there to every corner of the internet. Join Message boards, forums, run a blogging community, and utilize all the available tools the internet provides like social bookmarking sites. The more your name is out there, the more your business is known. And then what? More Sales happen.

Be Yourself. Building bridges via social networking is easier and quicker if you show that you’re a caring person as well as an astute business person. People will connect with you more easily this way. If you’re a mom with a target market of other work-at-home moms, this shared experience will help others to relate to you.

Using a different format- Most of your competitors are probably providing their customers with simple written materials on various topics. To stand out, you could use a different media format to offer your information with. This could be:

Video format

Audio format

Teleclasses/Webinars

Delivering your materials in a combination of media adds another dimension to the information you have to offer. Listening and watching can be more enjoyable than reading plain text. You can always provide a transcript so that they have reference materials to hand if required.

Online business owners have a goal: the success they desire. To grasp that success they have the desire to learn and do whatever it takes to make their business successful. Fulfill these desires and you have an array of profitable opportunities before you.

It’s all about problem and solution. They have the problem and you have the knowledge that will solve it. Give people the information that they need, want and truly desire and you will have a foothold in this billion dollar industry.

Adwords Management: Avoiding the ‘Google Slap’

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Proper management of your Google Adwords campaign will prevent your campaigns from getting what is commonly referred to in the internet marketing world as the “Google Slap.” So exactly WHAT IS the Google Slap? That’s when Google decides that you have done something that is either against their policies, quality guidelines, or against the law and they decide to “slap” you for it.

Sometimes that punishment results in your website being removed from its index and search results. Other times, it may be an “adjustment” downward for your page ranking. Here is how Google puts it in their own words:

“Google may temporarily or permanently remove sites from its index and search results if it believes it is obligated to do so by law, if the sites do not meet Google’s quality guidelines, or for other reasons, such as if the sites detract from users’ ability to locate relevant information. We cannot comment on the individual reasons a page may be removed…” (Google Webmasters/Site Owners Help Manual)

The “Google Slap” is mostly used when referring to cases where organic listings are penalized. Organic listings are free search results that appear below and to the left of paid ads; however, make no mistake about it; you can get “slapped” for running bad Adword campaigns as well. An example of having one’s Adword campaign being slapped would be where perhaps your ads were costing $3 a click and suddenly Google raised your minimum bid to $10.

Here are some of the common mistakes people make in their Adword campaigns that result in Google slaps: -Poorly written ads with extremely low click-through rates -Using too many broad-matching keywords, which really have no relevancy to the terms searched on; this will also result in low click-through rates, which will get you “slapped” with higher ad prices. -Low quality scores, where there is no relevancy between the keywords searched on, the Adword copy, and the landing page. -Using a destination URL that is not congruent with the display URL in your ad -Deceptive advertising; DON’T do this.

There are many other ways to get yourself slapped, but I think you may be getting the picture. Now, what you REALLY want to get from Google is what is referred to as “Google Love.”

Google loves for its searchers to find what they want; in fact, if you can figure out a way to make sure that your products or services are exactly what a searcher is looking for, Google will LOVE you. It’s really that simple. Many people try to over-complicate this.

Google loves for its searchers to be happy and they will reward you will lower-priced ads if you can consistently and effectively make this happen. Many advertisers don’t know it, but the ads at the top are not necessarily the ones who are paying the most. The Google bidding process factors in something called a “quality score,” which is the great equalizer. Quality scores assure Google that an advertiser cannot simply “buy” their way to the top position without giving the searchers value in return.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather be loved than slapped – especially when we are talking about my Google Adwords campaign. If you follow Google’s guidelines, do your market and keyword research, and spend some time learning about effective Adword campaign management techniques, I promise that you will feel lots of love…and not only that…you will find yourself with a profitable Adwords campaign.

Strive at the opportunity and make a strong plan to market within social groups

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Media should consider various factors related to social groups before deciding what and how to promote. Depending on the type of market condition media uses diverse techniques to show the impact of their promotional activity.

The smart marketer will use that commotion to their advantage. They will ride the wave.

One of the hardest thing for any marketer to do, whether on-line or off, is to create a stir around what they are trying to offer.

You have to have some level of excitement surrounding your product or service for it to see any success at all. When your product or service is new in market, it is not so easy to grab the attention of public and so marketing demands lot of hard work. Obviously if you are offering something to the people, you know that it is very important for them. It is very important for you to make the people understand about the importance of your product or service in order to avail business from them, if you don’t, you fail. If you are the one who does not want to put much of efforts creating excitement and imparting knowledge about the product or service, there is a way that can help you out with this. That way is to let the larger media outlets do all the work.

This means that you should plan a marketing strategy which uses the media effectively. Sometimes you will luck out and find that there is a big commotion related to something you are offering already and it will only take a little bit to get the social groups interested in what you have.

You may also have to widen up your imagination and think further about a big relationship that might already exist in the media which also has a direct influence on different social groups. Once you find that relationship, though, you can find a marketing strategy that can make that connection obvious. One more thing that is required is to educate yourself and having a look on current affairs on television and internet. Try to learn what kind of topic is coming regularly in news and related t6o what kind of topic chitchat is done among various social groups.

Find which subjects have gained maximum attention. You find such things which can relate to your product or service.

There are times, though, that it might be good to look at the media and decide on a product or service that is timely, that social groups of one kind or another are buzzing about. Select something which is amazing and which can create lot of eagerness among people. Watch trends and if you see something that is starting to gain some attention in certain social circles, it may be something that takes off and has widespread appeal. Take advantage of these things.

By yourself you may be trying to use the opportunity to the highest level for marketing your offer but at last you find small benefits in your hand.
