Introduction to Internet Marketing

Introduction to Internet Marketing
“What Internet Marketing Really, Really, Really Is All About!”
An Overview on Internet Marketing
Internet Marketing, put quite simply, is the concept of business marketing,
both to customers and to other businesses (B2B), by use of the Internet.
However, getting inside the concept and looking at how it works may not be
considered as quite so simple. The primary reason for this is that the Internet,
still relatively young, is ever-evolving and therefore subject to waves of change.
New advances in Internet technology are constantly providing new
opportunities for businesses to add to their marketing approach and content.
Likewise, advances in technology are making more affordable options available
to the consumer, and so many more people are logging onto the Internet every
day. As they do, the demographic is changing, and no longer is the wealthy
individual the only target of Internet Marketing. Today virtually all income
levels must be considered in the Internet Marketing approaches of business.
In the 1990s, Internet Marketing went berserk. It was a brand new concept,
and caution had been thrown to the wind in all the hype. Companies did not
take into consideration that the same variables of marketing in other forms of
media should logically be applied to Internet Marketing as well. Their failure to
study markets and create sound strategies led to the fall of many so-called dotcoms in the end of 2000. The survivors, and successors, began to look toward
time-tested logic in marketing for direction, and the result was massive growth.
Through the now-careful approach of businesses and marketers alike, targeted
2
advertising on the Internet has brought forth great success. Virtually any
market you may wish to break into can be tapped on the Internet. Many
marketing firms offer the solutions a business needs to get their products out
to consumers, while a small firm may wish to handle their marketing on their
own and can find lower-cost solutions for their goals as well.
Search engines are a major resource for marketing, but typically are only able
to provide ideas for what the consumer is already searching for. To accomplish
the spontaneous suggestions offered by television or radio, pop-up ads and ads
placed directly on a web-site are used. E-mail is an excellent form of marketing,
but typically only has success once a business has built a good relationship with
the consumer.
More and more people are spending more and more time on the Internet
daily.
The reason is simple: the convenience offered by the Internet, coupled with the
increasing abilities of the Internet to help you get your tasks completed, has
allowed for all types of business to be conducted with point and click ease.
Many tasks no longer require a trip in the car to be completed.
Thus, relationships are growing on the web, and as they do, the pace of
Internet commerce has rocketed into the trillions of dollars. Advances in
technology, and increased traffic, are leading to a future for Internet Marketing
that can only point skyward.
What Internet Marketing Is
Internet Marketing is the business of both advertising and selling goods and
3
services over the Internet. This form of business is ever-increasing in
popularity, with millions of people now making purchases on the Internet.
Internet Marketing began in the early 1990s as primarily a means of product
description, consisting merely of text descriptions. As technology progressed,
Internet Marketing rapidly advanced to include pictures and other rich graphics
as part of advertisements for products and services. After realizing the
remarkable potential of this means of marketing, Internet-based companies
started opening their virtual doors for business.
As opposed to what are now known as “brick and mortar” operations, these ebusinesses offer their products and services to a growing number of
consumers, conducting all, or nearly all, of their business in the virtual world of
the Internet.
There are many forms of marketing on the Internet. Among them are article
marketing, blog marketing, e-mail marketing, search engine marketing (to
include search engine optimization), banner ads, pay-per-click ads, and pop-up
ads. It is important to note that each of these forms catches the attention of
the target market in different ways, and some may be more effective than
others depending on the product or service, the target market, and the
strategy and goal of the business marketing itself.
Among the business functions that may require use of different means in their
strategies are customer service, sales, public relations, information
management, and others.
Internet Marketing has also become an integral component of many “brick and
mortar” operations, but online-only businesses have offered some challenge in
4
the arena of retail sales, an example of business-to-consumer (B2C) marketing,
business-to-business (B2B) marketing, and peer-to-peer (P2P) marketing.
However, other online-only businesses have specialized into newer approaches,
such as online auctions, sites that allow you to find the best price on what
you’re shopping for, and also sites that allow you to name your own price.
Further, affiliate marketers have emerged, offering marketing solutions to
virtually all types of business. These firms typically receive what is called pay
for performance. Even home-based businesses now flourish thanks to Internet
Marketing.
There are many benefits to the concept of Internet Marketing. It allows
consumers to shop and conduct business from the comfort of their own home,
any time of day or night, or from virtually anywhere provided they have a
connection to the Internet. Businesses work much more effectively with
partners. Efficiency and speed have increased dramatically as business and
shopping have moved to the Internet. Even costs have been dramatically
reduced. Furthermore, at this time, it is rare that you must pay any tax for the items you purchase online.
The most noted disadvantages to Internet Marketing are the sometimes slow or unreliable Internet connections that occur, and online security. Technology is diligently pursuing solutions to both problems, and progress is being made.
Also, with the attention of the government on identity theft, it is clear that
security and reliability will continue to improve over time.
