Times have really changed for businesses since the internet came around and it is evolving more and more every day. People from all over the world depend on the internet for the life of their business and have really learned how to utilize it effectively and efficiently. How? How do we get relevant internet users to come across your website? There is no one solution to this problem.
Below are the 3 basic steps to internet marketing. Think of them as
- A hard cover book (Website Design)
- A paperback book (Blogging)
- A newspaper or magazine (Social Media)
The hard cover book represents your website. It cost the most but it will last the longest. It will provide you with a resource for years to come. This is where the value comes in.
The paper back book cost less but typically does not last as long. It is a great reference when new but does not have the longevity of a hard cover book.
A newspaper or magazine is the lease costly and provides the most current news but goes out of date soon.
Internet Marketing is putting all three together in a package.
BIG HINT: Content is king!
The more you have, the more traffic you get! The most important step is building a visitor / search engine friendly website. Your website should be appealing to visitors. Once someone comes to your website you need to keep their interest. It also needs to be built with ranking well with the search engines in mind. This is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
