Do You Need an Internet Marketing and Advertising Company

When looking for an internet marketing and advertising company, you will find that you have many to choose from. What’s the difference between internet marketing and advertising? Marketing is basically the whole approach you take to sell your product or service, while advertising is just one part of the marketing pie. The other pieces of the pie include, but are not limited to, market research (researching your target market and competition), media planning, public relations, product or service pricing, distribution, customer support, and involvement in the community. Market research is a key activity that needs to be performed by yourself or another company that specializes in this. It is crucial that you do this and also very time consuming so it might be one of the tasks that you do outsource to someone else. Media planning is another good one to hand over to someone else. An expert in this field can put you head and shoulders above the competition. Distribution, customer service and community involvement are often the kinds of duties that management likes to be involved in personally in order to be in touch with their customers and their needs. But you can also pass this on to another company.

While one firm may be an internet marketing and advertising company all in one, it is often the case that the two concepts are split. An internet marketing company may perform tasks such as developing a website, doing all the SEO, establishing your brand, providing content, copywriting, public relations, and ad creation. An internet advertising company will focus on only the ad part of the business. This could also include creating the ad, in addition to creating advertising campaigns.

Before handing your business over to someone else, think about what you really need and how much you want to spend. While you can do a great deal of the online marketing for free on various sites, this kind of stuff can take up a lot of time. And, as they say, time is money. If hiring extra staff to take on this task isn’t what you had in mind, then yes, an internet marketing company can be a good fit for you. One thing is for sure, you do need to be on the internet if you are going to do business. This is true for small local businesses as much as it is true for global corporations. Even local searches are now being performed online. People just throw their phone books out these days, and they don’t go to online yellow pages either. They just use their simple search engine, like Google, Yahoo, or MSN, and type in what they want to find. If you want to make sales, you need to come up in their searches. And you can do all of this through an internet marketing and advertising company.

Where Do you Buy Internet Advertising

Internet advertising is a very broad term which encompasses hundreds of different methods, all designed to get you traffic and customers. There are many places that you can buy internet advertising: any of the search engines (with Pay Per Click – PPC – Advertising), on business websites that attract similar customers to your business, in E zines (online magazines), on paid classified advertising sites, and more.

Sometimes you don’t even need to buy internet advertising. You can do it for free on the social networking sites, forums that are relevant to your business or products/services or through article marketing.

But before you start advertising for free or otherwise, you need to first figure out who you are advertising to and what they are looking for. The more specific you can get about this, the more effective your advertising will be so you need to put in quite a bit of thought and research into this. Where can you find what people are looking for? One of the easiest ways is to do some keyword research. You can use many of the free keyword research tools to see exactly what people in your business area are typing into the search engines. You can then use these keywords in many of your online marketing and advertisements.

You can then go about designing your own internet advertising campaign or you can choose an agency or service to do one for you. Doing it on your own when first starting out may be long and tedious, but hiring someone to do the work for you can be expensive. If you decide to pay an agency, do some research on which one fits your needs best first. Also, it’s better if you can find someone who will actually explain their processes and methods to you–not a company that just takes care of it all for you. This is how you can start learning to make your ads more effective as well.

PPC ads are one form of paid online advertising and perhaps the most popular. These are the ads that you see on the right-hand side of your computer screen when you click a term in your search engine browser. The most popular search engines are Google, Yahoo and MSN, but there are hundreds more out there. With PPC advertising, you create an advertisement based on a keyword or keywords that people are searching for on the internet (after you’ve done your keyword research). You then pay the search engine each time someone clicks on your advertisement.

With E zine advertising, you choose an e zine that fits your target market and place ads within its newsletters. The prices of these ads depend on the size and quality of the e zine subscriber list.

Many business websites grant you the possibility to advertise on their sites as well. Again, prices here will vary.

When you buy internet advertising, you must also make sure that you are tracking which ads work and which ones don’t. This is the only way you can improve your traffic and conversions.
