Article Submission Versus Hosted Marketing Pages An Internet Marketing Comparison 3 Key Questions To Ask About Internet Marketing The Shot Heard Around The World Google S Endorsement Of Get Google Ads Free
The quest for high search engine rankings (and the traffic that comes along with them) has spawned some new search engine optimization techniques of late, two of them being article submission and hosted marketing pages. Although these techniques are similar in appearance, each has advantages and disadvantages. Before we delve into the heart of the issue, a couple of definitions are in order for newcomers to the internet marketing realm.
Submitting articles requires quite a bit of unpleasant work. First you have to be an expert about your chosen subject (or have the ability to fool others into believing you’re an expert). Next you must be able to write about your subject in at least a coherent manner. Then you must find article directories in which to submit your work, giving them and any possible viewers the authority to freely copy and distribute your creation.
A hosted marketing page is a cross between purchasing a one way link from a website and submitting an article to a directory. The website in question allows you to purchase a complete page from their site along with a professionally written article that has multiple one-way links to your site.
The main advantages to both techniques are the SEO-friendly links. Whether you submit your article to a directory or purchase a hosted marketing page, you will get one-way links pointing to your site. Because search engines love one-way links, your website will undoubtedly receive a boost in your search engine ranking. But, the biggest boost will come from links using keywords relevant to your site coming from pages written about a subject relevant to your site.
Here’s something you should remember. In most cases, a hosted marketing page text link from a relevant, high PR website will be much more important to the search engines than a text link from a posted article in a directory. But, if you’re a talented enough author to have your writing approved, it may show up in several directories as well as multiple authority sites. This influx of links could potentially outweigh the few links from a single hosted marketing page.
The disadvantages are pretty obvious. Writing and submitting articles, although free, can consume a considerable amount of time, especially if you are not comfortable writing professionally. On the other hand, purchasing a professionally written hosted marketing page can be very expensive. You should be prepared to shell out anywhere from fifty dollars to several hundred dollars per month, depending on the popularity of the site.
Here’s the bottom line. If you have little time, little writing skill, and a large marketing budget, hosting marketing pages would be most beneficial to you. However, if you have some free time, some copywriting experience, and little to no advertising dollars, writing and submitting articles to article directories would be most beneficial to you.
Internet marketing is exciting, challenging, and confusing. It can make or break your internet business career and yet many people who depend on internet marketing don’t have a full grasp of the essentials involved in internet marketing.
In fact, many internet entrepreneurs waste a great deal of time, energy, and momentum because they do not fully understand internet marketing. Don’t let this lack of understanding undermine your income potential.
In order for you to better understand internet marketing and its impact on your internet business you must know the answers to these three key questions:
1. What Is Internet Marketing?
2. What Is The Cost Of Internet Marketing?
3. What Is The Benefit of Internet Marketing?
What Is Internet Marketing?
Marketing is actually rather simple. Marketing is communication about an idea, product, service, or organization. Marketing therefore encompasses advertising, promotion and sales as well as the various techniques and forms of communication used to advertise, promote and sell.
Marketing is broader than simple advertising or promotion in that it includes researching the market to learn what consumers want and then setting out to meet their needs with the appropriate product, price, and distribution method. Marketing includes market research, deciding on products and prices, advertising promoting distributing and selling.
Marketing also covers all the activities involved in moving products and services from the source to the end user including making customers aware of products and services, attracting new customers to a product or service, keeping existing customers interested in a product or service, and building and maintaining a customer base for a product or service.
Internet marketing includes these same activities but also pulls in various internet tools including web sites, email, ezines, banner advertising, blogging, RSS, text links, search engine optimization, affiliates, autoresponders, and other ecommerce applications.
What Is The Cost Of Internet Marketing?
The range of expenses for internet marketing is huge. There are a number of promotional and marketing ventures that can cost you nothing or only pennies a day while other advertising efforts can cost you thousands a day.
It is important to consider your goals — both long-term and short-term — as well as how much each prospective customer is worth to you. This will help you determine a workable budget for your internet marketing campaign.
Many internet promotions are free, you can set up a web site and/or blog for $250 a year, and you can buy text links for $10 a month. You could easily spend $25-50 a day for advertising but there are many cheaper ad options available.
The best program is to start small and cheap and slowly build as you test and learn what is successful for your market and product. There is no perfect acvertising solution that works wonders for everyone. Each marketer and each product has a different formula.
What Is The Benefit of Internet Marketing?
Internet marketing offers more benefits than many traditional marketing mediums. The very nature of web sites and blogs is that they continue working to promote and market your product long after your initial marketing effort is over. Similarly many advertising efforts, such as ezines, newsletters, banners, and text links also continue to increase in power over time.
Email marketing can be a tremendous surge in contacts and sales and offers the ability to personalize your message as well as reach a targeted audience so your chance for sales goes up exponentially.
The other tremendous benefit of internet marketing is that it offers convenience and immediate satisfaction. Your potential customer sees your marketing message when it is convenient for them — and often when they are seeking information about your specific topic. Then you offer them the ability to act on that interest right then. They can locate your product and buy in the time it would take to watch a commercial on television or turn a page in the newspaper. That is the power of internet marketing.
Now that you have the answers to these three key questions, you are ready to begin your own internet marketing campaign — and succeed with your internet venture.
I am a journalist for various publications in upstate New York, as well as the New England area. I recently had a chance to interview the fine team of professionals whose flagship product is entitled “Get Google Ads Free.”
In April of 2007 “Get Google Ads Free” was launched, and the effect was nothing less than equal to “the shot heard around the world!” Within just weeks people everywhere were talking about it, and other top-notch online marketers were scurrying to sell it as an Affiliate for the company.
But here’s a little insight that 99.9% of everyone the world over
The Product’s greatest endorser is none other than Google itself!
That’s right. As shocking as it may seem, Google has NO problem with the course that reveals how anyone can get ads on their search engine for Free!
Now, at this point I know you must be curious as to how such a thing is possible, as Google makes its money from the sale of both AdWords (PPCs) and AdSense (where webmasters allow Google to show their ads on their pages).
One might think that any information that revealed how an advertiser could get their AdWords pay-per-clicks free would be damaging to Google, and therefore Google would not want anyone finding out about it, right?
WRONG! It seems that the secret system developed by the retired native New York doctor contains an interesting “twist” that while allowing advertisers to eliminate their AdWords costs, it does not reduce a single dollar in AdWords revenue for Google.
In fact, just the opposite!
I cannot give away the secret here because that’s why it’s for sale in the first place.
But I can tell you that with the application of what’s inside “Get Google Ads Free” that:
– Google loses NO money
– Google actually can make even more M0NEY!
– Advertisers gain an instant almost unfair advantage over anyone
not knowing what’s inside “Get Google Ads Free!”
– Advertisers can now afford to outbid their competition!
– Advertisers are not at risk any longer as their advertising
budgets no longer matter!
Wow! And this is just the beginning!
Now, where’s the definitive PROOF that Google endorses the amazing system shown in “Get Google Ads Free?”
I asked this question to company spokesperson and Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mr Todd Coutrin, to which he responded:
We started our launch like we always do with any product online, using Google AdWords to offer our Product.
We used keywords that contained the word ‘free’ so we anticipated the usual HOLD these keywords usually cause any campaign using them to experience.
But when our campaign was paused by Google for a tad more time than what we regularly anticipated, then we got concerned.
I actually placed a call directly to Google at 1-866-2-GOOGLE and spoke at length with a customer services rep who said she’d check into what was happening.
She returned my call 16 hours later and informed me that due to the specific nature of the Product in question (i.e., the ebook “Get Google Ads Free!”) their team at Google secured the product, read it all the way trough, and then realizing it would NOT hurt their revenue but actually increase it, they immediately un-paused and resumed our ads”
Amazing! They actually got what amounts to a Signed Certificate of APPROVAL from Google itself!
Therefore, anyone who questions the truth or legality concerning “Get Google Ads Free!” need not fret at all.
Yet, the usual “naysayers” seemed to ignore the obvious fact that if Google had a problem with “Get Google Ads Free!” then we all wouldn’t be seeing all the PPC ads at Google each time we type in the keywords and phrases:
– free ads
– free advertising
– “Get Google Ads Free”
– free ppc
– free adwords
And so forth!
Yet, there are many very stubborn, even foolish, among us …
The Crybaby Syndrome
To be fair, I must also inform you of those who seem to be out to get the company for sharing their amazing secret with the world.
In what seems nothing more than a ploy to get attention, a UK online firm operated by two “wanna-be” law students have a Blog that talks the usual trash about the Product.
The Blog’s owner, Rob Scott, talks a big game by claiming the secret system to be nothing short of a scam! He even recklessly throws around the potentially libelous phrase “.con (Oops, I meant .com)” as an attempt at childish humor in order to bash the firm’s name.
What’s shocking is that this individual is actually a student of law (at least that’s what he claims) so one would think that he should perhaps check out the facts before proceeding with such careless remarks.
After all, he admits severally that he “never even ordered the ebook” so how could he truly know one way or the other if it was a valid system – not to mention it is assumed he’s at least reasonably intelligent since (according to him) he got into law school, that he would be able to see for himself the firm’s Affiliates’ ads all over Google, and therefore reason that Google itself is perhaps the firm’s chief supporter.
But stubbornness abounds, I suppose.
Ironically Rob says that the only reason he attacks the firm is because “it’s a no brainer that this must be a scam,” and he got “tired of seeing all those little AdSense ads on his page that people kept clicking on” (which by the way only stood to make him lots of M0NEY!) — yet he accepts donations on his site as a poor, struggling law student in need of paying for his education, and rather than legitimately earn an income from AdSense with an APPROVED Product.
Sadly, Rob actually censors most of his Blog so that others who wish to post POSITIVES concerning “Get Google Ads Free!” can’t even do so. (But what would you expect from a “wanna-be” lawyer?)
He even posts what appears to be an actual response by the firm’s lawyer, but which is perhaps nothing more than his own posts disguised and designed to make himself look better (as anyone can see that the dialogue appears “manufactured” instead of genuine).
What some people will do to project themselves as “Savior to the rest of us” and “The People’s Advocate.” How ridiculous indeed.
Despite the “crybaby” from across the pond, Rob Snot (Oops! I must have meant Rob Scott!) has failed miserably to put even a dent in the firm’s sales!
Plus, traffic is on the rise shooting up from an average of 14,000 visitors daily to now well above 20,000 visitors daily (an increase of 42% in daily traffic alone! — Keep up the good work, Rob!!)
Anyway, don’t be dissuaded in your decision to build your online business by eliminating your Google AdWords costs, as the course “Get Google Ads Free!” not only reveals precisely how you can do this, but it goes 10 steps further by giving you all kinds of other amazing strategies I can’t even begin to allude to here.
Plus, the e-Course comes with countless resources that go far beyond the usual variety of instantly-clickable extra values!
Lastly never forget that even though quite elderly now, Dr Jon Cohen has even set new records finishing ahead of himself by now
– Grossed over $400 Million in revenues!!
– and SAVED over $100 Million in Google advertising costs!!
– attained a personal wealth above $80 million
…all due to his own system!
*NOTE: Rob Scott is broke and demands donations! (Ha!)
Talk about putting your money where your mouth is!!.
