When it comes to learning advanced internet marketing techniques it’s important to first make sure that you aren’t skipping ahead, have the basics in place first and then you can build on that.
With all the terms and jargon you hear online it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and fall for the pitch from the ‘guru’ who claims he’ll do it all for you but you keep all the money. You know in your head that that just doesn’t make any sense, I mean why would he do the work and let you keep the money? But you’re so desperate for some success you talk yourself into believing that just maybe, this will work.
The problem is it won’t work and you’re left with more disappointment, and lost money. Don’t let the terms and jargon fool you, learn the basic concepts and then you can build on that and have a successful online business. Just never forget that it’s a process, it will take a little time.
Here are some basic terms for you to learn when doing Internet Marketing:
1. Search engine optimization (SEO) this is simply a way to help the search engines find you. You will place keywords on your website in specific places such as the title and description etc, that will make your site more ‘visible’ to the search engines. That will help you rank higher in search engine results and give you more free traffic.
2. Pay per click (PPC) this is when you pay for ads that are supposed to drive people to your website. You only have to pay when someone clicks on your ad. The issue with PPC, if you’re a beginner, is that the rules for using it can change all the time and it’s got a steep learning curve. In short, you’ll spend a lot of money while you’re learning how to do it.
3. Article marketing is when you write an article around some keywords and have it published by an article directory. Once published people will see the article, click on the link, and be taken to your website. It’s a great source of free, targeted traffic for your site.
4. Article marketing is an automated, usually by subscription, service where you can gather the names and email addresses of the people who come to your website. This is important because it allows you to have many contacts with them and build trust with them.
