Marketing for Success: Four Strategies for Online Businesses

The success of any online business depends in large part on where and how it's marketed. After all, a website sitting all by its lonesome in cyberspace isn't going to do much good; people have to be able to find it first!

But that's only where it begins. Once your website is getting traffic, it's next job is to convert visitors into paying customers. From there, your job is to try to turn customers into repeat buyers or into a source of referrals. Here are four major types of marketing to incorporate into your marketing plan:

1. Targeted Marketing

Who is your target audience, what do they want, and how do you reach them? Understanding your audience is the first step to a successful marketing campaign. There are many ways to reach your target audience on the Internet, including search engines, links, ezine advertising, joint ventures, and more.

Don't neglect to research your 'offline' market as well -- many people still prefer to be contacted in the 'real world', rather than through cyberspace! For more information on offline marketing methods, visit onlinebusinessbasics.com/articles/checklist3.html

2. Permission Marketing

'Spam' -- unsolicited email -- can cause varied reactions from minor irritation to outright rage. You don't have to spam in order to get business; people acknowledge that there are products and services about which they're willing to receive information. The Internet has proved this to be true: how many times have you willingly signed up to receive a newsletter?

Some methods of permission marketing include publishing a newsletter; offering product or service announcements or updates; and using an autoresponder to distribute reports, articles, stories, etc. Subscription forms can be placed on your site so that visitors can indicate their interest.

By getting a visitor's permission to contact them, you accomplish a couple of things:

a) You're able to market to them regularly (unless they choose to unsubscribe). For various reasons, many people do not make immediate purchases. When you have permission to contact them regularly, you are more likely to catch them at a time that they're ready to buy.

b) Subscribers have automatically 'qualified' themselves as interested prospects. You can focus your efforts on marketing to them, rather than to visitors who have no real interest in your products and services.
