Internet Marketing: Getting Into The Consumer Mindset

"Captuturing Customer Information Is Serious Business"

This is something to think about when you create your onilne campaigns.

My Life81268: SEO - Crucial SEO Site Elements: "Asking yourself the following questions may help you create a web site that is nicely and organically search engine optimized and that is geared towards making the most profits. Once again, these principles are in accordance with generating multiple streams of income as this is one of the basic intents of including SEO in a web site design in the first place.

1. Where am I going to put my request for the customer's email address? Remember that if a customer visits your site without entering their email address you have not only lost an opportunity to network with them but you will have no database to sell to advertisers.

2. Where am I going to put my banners and links to affiliate programs? Remember that you don't want them to become so wowed by a banner that they forget to read about YOUR products before they click to another site."


This is a good thing to consider when you design your web pages. There are different ways of getting consumer information. This is something that is changing. The "Newsletter"thing has been a bit overdone and there is realy only so much news one can take on a daily basis. You may want to consider the following:

* Exclusive chat transcripts
* FAQ access, (YES, ask for contact info before you allow entry)
* Mini Courses
* Direct Mail packages (guarantee your direct mail to be opened!)

Just a few nuggest of wisdom to chew on.

Knock Off Ad Copy Saves The Day

'When All Else Fails - Steal From Thy Neighbor"

Good Grief... I was just listening to the BBC Radio 1 in search for new musical sounds. While I was listening I heard some incredibly bad stomach churning drivel. Among the thumpy dance beats I listened to some watered down SMITHS and Depeche Mode tunes redone by a synth type sound and higher octave vocals.......

Whats the point? SOME PRODUCTS CARRY ON.... The Smiths and DM are bands from the late 80's. These melodies are not exactly fresh but classic in a sense and have been recycled. This is important to do when you run your sales copy too. You see, you don't always have to have something new to create something that sells.

On a COPYWRITING side of things think about knocking off a campaign or some junk mail that made you do a double take. Getting an eye for this sort of thing can REALLY SAVE YOUR MARKETING. Get into the habit of putting these gems into some sort of box, (aka Swipe File) these will serve as formulas that you can later use for your own marketing efforts.

Sounds simple.... Why don't more people do it?

Think of the greats who have walked this world -- Gary Halbert, Robert Collier, and John Caples. But you don't have to just recycle sales copy from the copywriters who have passed. There are plenty of others that you can learn from .... Joe Vitale, Dan Kennedy, Orange Beetle and many more.

Your sales offers - no matter if they are done online or offline should contain a lot more than just picutres and prices. This is going to hold true especially if you are trying to get noticed online and get your pages indexed. Strong SEO, (search engine optimization).

The best part about all of this is that many successful formulas have already been done. Your job is to go out and find out what made them tick -- recreate them and get them to work for you.

This is not as hard as it may sound.

With the right set of trained eyes you can take an ad and twist it, bend it and make it work for your products and services. This takes out all the stress and worry of getting a sales letter to perform like the way you want it to.

This is a very powerful strategy.
