Internet Marketing….My take on the Piece of the Puzzel


How does one go about capitalizing on today’s society and how it is all driven? Internet marketing is one of the hottest trends out there today. Social media, affiliate marketing, branding online, websites, blogging, photo sharing, twitter, which one do you use? Pick one. There are so many ways to market online it is almost obscene. I have been watching several people in some of my social media sites I am on and even the novice is flocking to them and calling themselves marketing mavens. Now, I am not belittling anyone at all. I was at a beginning point also and needed to learn the latest and greatest ways to communicate. But, I also have a education and studied long and difficult hours worth of case studies on the effects of marketing, branding, research and so forth. Some may say it is all about common sense, but I also feel it is part studying the marketing trends and not just in it for a quick fix.
If you happen to stumble upon a niche market and find yourself succeeding where others have not, then you hit the big one! Congrats! Otherwise, it takes many hours of non stop, persistent and challenging trials and errors to succeed at anything. It may take several years to accomplish the success you so desire. I, myself, have been at this, for myself, for about 3 years. Have I had successes? Yes. Have I always hit the jack pot? No. Have I given up on my passion? No. If there is one thing about marketing, I have grown to love, is the ever changing scope of how things are done and the patterns keep changing. That is why I love it so much. It is not a stagnant field. There are so many ways to promote, get the word out about something you are doing, advertise, post, upload video, post a picture, etc. it is amazing! Experts are flocking to the internet media waves and posting their white papers online. Researchers and their long time love of difficult hours, are finding their successes by posting their findings online as well. All of this to get noticed. I don’t think there is one person who has not been online doing something. Whether it is to surf the web, search for something to do, find an event, read the newspaper, post a picture for everyone to see, keep a track of their stock portfolio, or gossip and post your opinions. We are all on the online at some point in a day.
Where am I taking all this? What am I trying to say? It’s easy people, no one can deny they are not on the web. Just about everyone is marketing and communicating about something. It is putting the US Postal system on their tail ends. Their comments, opinions, marketing an event, whatever it may be, we are here. Is this a trend? NO. The online presence of today’s society is here to stay. It adds enrichment to our lives. Are we on overload with it? Sometimes, Yes. Don’t abuse the system people or it won’t work. Give us the information, your opinion whether solicited or not, and help me feel good about what is going on in the world.
That is my take on Internet marketing. I may be just a little bit more of a novice, but I am here to stay and I will impart my knowledge for you all to see and hopefully learn from. It is my participation in the world!
