If you want to make out like a bandit on the internet, the success or failure of your business hinges primarily on one important area – your ability to get visitors to your website and convert those visitors into cash. With the right marketing plan, you can get thousands of pre-qualified visitors to your website each and every day. Times, they are a changing. To stay on top you need to know how to market online like the *big dogs*.
Read on for some tips on how you can shoot your online income sky-high.
Here’s a list of advertising methods along with a breakdown of how much you can expect to pay for each. By the way, these marketing strategies actually work:
Article Marketing – This is an extremely powerful online marketing strategy because it’s viral and therefore creates a permanent source of traffic. If you can write your own articles, the cost of implementing this strategy can be $0. But if you would prefer to hire someone do the research and write your articles the cost could run anywhere from $10 to $100 per articles.
Blogging – This is also a free marketing strategy because it’s possible to publish your blog for free. After your blog is online, all you need to do is post information. There are blogs online right now making 5 figures a month posting 5-7 times a day.
Email Marketing – First, you’ll need to build a prospect list, which can be done for free. Simply create a lead generating free offer as an *Ethical Bribe* to give your website visitors in exchange for their name and email address.
Then, you’ll need an autoresponder service to deliver your marketing messages via email. Starting out, your monthly autoresponder bill will be dirt cheap – around $20 a month.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – Again, this strategy can be free if you know how to do it yourself. There are *on page* and *off page* factors associated with SEO. The most important of all the factors involves link building.
You can establish free link partners or you can purchase links. The cost of buying links can range from less than $100 a month to several thousand dollars a month.
Joint Ventures – There are several different types of joint ventures. A joint venture is nothing more than a partnership. For instance, your joint venture partner could agree to advertise your product to his or her client list in exchange for a percentage of the profits. While you can contact and arrange these partnerships for free, you’ll still need affiliate program software for tracking and reporting purposes. This software will typically run you around $300 and up.
Pay-Per-Click Advertising (PPC) – This is the fastest way to get traffic to your website. Cost will depend on your budget. PPC pricing is based on cost per click or CPC. Which means you as an advertiser will pay for each click made on your advertisement. Prices typically range from 5¢ to over $1 per click through.
Media Buying – This is the process of buying ad space on a website. You would typically use banner ads for this type of advertising. The fee is based on cost per thousand impressions or CPM.
CPM is the price you would pay to an advertising vendor for every 1,000 times your ad is displayed. This fee can range from .25 to $50 per thousand impressions. Personally, I never agree to pay more than $1 to $3 CPM.
That’s the long and short of it. A good Internet advertising plan can help your business climb to the next level. At the end of the day, by carefully selecting a quality Internet marketing method you can gain more quality customers and complete more sales online.
