Understanding The Practicalities Of Online Marketing – Is It For You?

Your website is the ideal venue in which to explain the features and benefits of your product or service; with great emphasis on the benefits. Just as with traditional advertising and marketing, explaining how your product or service will improve the lives of your prospects is paramount. Do not get caught up in why it’s the best; instead, show them why it’s the best for them.

Video is, of course, the ideal medium for showing almost anything, but its best use is for showing your prospect how they will benefit from the use of your product or service. Seeing your product in use; seeing others enjoying the benefits of your service; seeing you demonstrate the usefulness of your product, can only enhance their esteem for what you might do for them. Your website is the perfect platform on which to accomplish this, as virtually all hosting sites offer the ability to embed video in your site.

Using the Social Network, sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as the professional networking site LinkedIn, will help to spread your message across the Internet, and the world.

Because Facebook is so popular, with 750 million active users, and because these users love to share information, each of them generating about 90 pieces of fresh content per month, the potential for any single piece of information being shared is mind-blowing. In fact, if just one person shares your information, it has the potential to reach 16,900 people within a couple of days. From there, there is no limit, because every new share increases the possible views of your information by nearly 17,000 users, every other day or so.

The sharing of information on Twitter, known as Tweets, is nearly as popular. These short, 140 character snippets of information have the potential to reach more than half-a-million users several times a day. Further, due to the nature of sharing information on Twitter, the short, to-the-point style, it is ideal for mobile sharing; evidenced by the 182% increase in mobile Tweets in the last year. Putting your information right into the hands of your prospect, even when not in front of a computer, makes it a wonderful resource for promoting your product or service.
