The goal of marketing is to find and then keep customers by creating a strong bond between you and them. It is so much more than just selling. It is more about developing a relationship with customers so that they want to do business with you again and again.
You identify your passion and then turn that passion into a business. A successful internet business simply cannot rely only on the old rules of marketing.
It takes much more than marketing hype to succeed online. Too many books on internet marketing only focus on the mechanics of marketing. Anyone can learn how to send an email for example.
But do you know how to send an email that will attract attention?
Business marketing strategies have one overriding purpose: Find customers!
Remember the Where’s Waldo cartoon where the character hides all over the place?
That is your goal: to find online (and off) customers and provide a great product or service, and then – convince them to buy from you over and over again.
Customers are like Waldo…they can be hiding anywhere.
Where might they be hiding, and how can you dig them out?
There is a book named Results and it looks at various organizations and their cultures.
The book was written by Gary L. Neilson and Bruce A. Pasternack (Crown Business, October 2005, 320p).
The purpose of the book is to identify the personality and characteristics of various businesses.
What are yours? (and does it matter?)
The direction of change to seek is not in our four dimensions: it is getting deeper into what you are, where you are, like turning up the volume on the amplifier. -Thaddeus Golas, author
If you can make money selling products or services, that’s awesome.
But if you can get more than one income stream flowing, that’s even better. In fact, you may think of it as “backup” plans for when the master plan doesn’t work out (most businesses fail in the first 4 years). It can become your cushion, and exactly what you need to start again. Multiple income streams are good, and you know what stock brokers do, right? Multiple, diversified portfolios is recommended.
How can you make a simple change in how you use words to help you change your marketing strategies for profits?
Trust can be built up quickly using your unique messaging, tools and social networks. But it can also be destroyed just as quickly when it comes to the openness of the web.
If something goes wrong (think about the iPhone 4.0 reception debacle), EVERYONE is going to hear about it – and in multiple forms of media. Of course, a smaller brand may have a lesser world-wide attention than Apple. The “wrong” may be an inadvertent post to a competitor, that somebody made a stink about internally. There are many different flavors. Here, I point to external brands and social media mistakes.
But, the truth is, you are a global company, even if you are local. People can reach, touch, and see you easily, if they want to.
Should you hide or embrace it? Some company cultures (believe it or not) try to stay way from the inevitable. (meaning, you cannot or should not hide).
What should you do when a message or conversation starts taking off on its own? (without your control)
I had an interesting talk with an extended family member the other day.
I had just informed her that I was reading a particular book about marketing for unique business models.
She reacted (sorry to you if you read this) very negatively, and simply responded: “Well, the government is certainly not going to help us, at least not for another 4-5 years”. “Things are not good”.
Is this how you feel too? Well, this is a very common thought out there. I hope this post can make you think or see things a little differently. Perhaps see some way to take decisive action.

If you are marketing online for celebrities, what follows are good tips for you to watch for, and take action on. You can share these with your celebrity client too.
Education is important, so don’t try to hide this stuff from them. Make it a team effort. Their input will be vital to your success.
Video is where your celebrity wants to be anyway, so why not make it a part of the marketing campaign that will make them a household name, if they aren’t already?
You need to keep in mind that there are several different types of media: text, audio, and video. And while text is great and audio is better, video is where you can really grab the attention of others.
If you’ve looked at the news over the last few years, you’ve noticed that more news stations have been including videos in their news and on their websites.
Video is engaging, interactive, and it helps to bring even more personality to your celebrity. Reading about someone is one thing, hearing and seeing them is another.
