    • Internet Marketing 101
      • Internet Marketing - "Also referred to as online marketing, is marketing that uses the Internet. The Internet has brought many unique benefits to marketing that include very low costs in distributing information and media to a global audience. However, the interactive nature of the media, both in terms of instant response, and in eliciting response at all, are both desirable qualities of internet marketing.
      • Internet marketing ties together both the creative and technical aspects of the internet." 1
      • Internet Marketing is made up of four different channels: E-Mail Marketing, Banner Advertising, Pop-Up Advertising, and Search Engine Marketing.
      • Source: 1 Wikipedia.org
      First, we'd like to give you a short overview of the terms we'll be using, just in case you haven't begun Internet Marketing. This will help you better understand the presentation.
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Source: 1 Wikipedia.org
      e-Mail Marketing - "A form of direct marketing which uses electronic mail as a means of communicating commercial or fund raising messages to an audience. In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing." 1 While one of the least expensive ways to market using the Internet, email marketing to current customers can often be effective, however mailing to potential target customers (spam) is typically only effective in very large quantities and very specific cases, and not considered among the best options.
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏

      Banner Advertising - "A graphical web advertising unit, typically measuring 468 pixels wide and 60 pixels tall (i.e. 468x60). Love them or hate them, banner ads are one of the dominant forms of advertising online. Due to the widespread acceptance of the standard 468x60 banner ad size, buyers can easily secure placements at most sites, and publishers can accept ads from most advertisers. Banner ads were initially judged primarily on the basis of click-through rate (CTR). In the early days of the Web, click-through rates were generally much higher than they are now, perhaps due to the novelty factor. Other causes for the decline in CTR may include technical limitations, the awkward horizontal shape, poor banner design, an excessive percentage of run-of-network buys, and accumulated bad experiences of Web surfers." 1 Except for very specific and well planned cases, Banner Advertising is not considered an effective means of Internet Marketing.
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Source: 1 Webopedia.com
      Pop Up Advertising - "A type of window that appears on top of (over) the browser window of a Web site that a user has visited. In contrast to a pop-under ad, which appears behind (in back of) the browser window, a pop-up is more obtrusive as it covers other windows, particularly the window that the user is trying to read. Pop-ups ads are used extensively in advertising on the Web, though advertising is not the only application for pop-up windows. A pop-up ad is also referred to as a pop-up." 1 As with Banner Advertising, this type of Internet Marketing is also not considered an effective means of Internet Marketing except in a few special cases and are also blocked by most browser software.
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Search Engine Marketing (SEM) - The main topic of our presentation, "Search Engine Marketing, or SEM, is a form of Internet Marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in the Search Engine results pages (SERPs) and has a proven ROI (Return on Investment). According to the Search Engine Marketing Professionals Organization, SEM methods include: Search Engine Optimization (or SEO), paid placement, and paid inclusion. Other sources, including the New York Times define SEM as the practice of buying paid search listings, different from SEO which seeks to obtain better free search listings." 1
      • SEM is the most effective means of Internet Marketing because it can provide instant results and typically provides a very high ROI.
      • Source: 1 Wikipedia.org
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Keyword (Keyword Search Term) - "A keyword in an Internet search is one of the words used to find matching web pages. It was popularized during the early days of search engine development, as it was not possible to ask natural language questions and find the desired sites. Searches gave the best results if only a few keywords were chosen and searched for. These "keywords" captured the essence of the topic in question and were likely to be present on all sites listed by the search engine." 4
      • Source: 1 Techweb.com
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - "The process of choosing targeted keyword phrases related to a site, and ensuring that the site places well when those keyword phrases are part of a Web search." 1
      • When done right, SEO provides the highest ROI from Internet Marketing, but is a longer term strategy because of the time it can take to position a website well in the search engines.
      • Paid Inclusion (Pay Per Click/PPC) - "The process of paying to be included in a search engine or directory." 2
      • Paid inclusion provides the fastest return on investment from Internet Marketing, normally instant or within a few hours.
      • Source: 1 Marketingterms.com 2 Homegardenexchange.com
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Sponsored Result (Sponsored Link) - "A paid advertisement in the form of a hypertext link that shows up on search results pages. The ads are typically for products and services that are generally or very specifically related to the keywords in the search query." 1
      • These results are generation through paid inclusion or Pay Per Click (PPC).
      • Organic Search Result (Index Listing Result) – "Also called natural results, they are usually found on the left side of the search engine pages or below the highlighted sponsored links. These results allow web users to search through unpaid relevant results." 2
      • These results are generated through Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
      • Source: 1 Thefreedictionary.com 2 Digitalsurgeons.com
    • Internet Marketing 101 (continued)‏
      • Search Volume – The search volume is the number of searches by individuals for a particular keyword for a specific search engine.
      • Click Through Rate (CTR) - “CTR is a way of measuring the success of an online advertising campaign. A CTR is obtained by dividing the number of users who clicked on an ad on a web page by the number of times the ad was delivered (impressions). For example, if your text ad was delivered 100 times (impressions delivered) and 1 person clicked on it (clicks recorded), then the resulting CTR would be 1%.” 1
      • Conversion Rate - “In Internet Marketing the conversion rate is the percentage of unique visitors who take a desired action upon visiting the website. The desired action may be submitting a sales lead, making a purchase, viewing a key page of the site, downloading a whitepaper, or some other measurable action” 1

      • Now your up to date on the latest terminology.
      • Lets get to the good stuff!
    • The #1 Internet Myth
      • Although your website is important, it is not the most important part of your Internet Marketing.
      • The facts: Your internet site is useless unless prospective customers find it. As long as your site is professional, most visitors will contact you if you sell a quality product or service. The focus of your business should not be on having the best website. If customers find your site before your competitor's, chances are they will buy from you.
      • The 3 key factors to a successful Internet Marketing campaign are:
      • 1. Your ad must compliment the keyword. You landing page must match the ad and the keyword.
      • 2. Your website must provide quality information or products or service directly related to what the user is searching for and be presented professionally.
      • 3. You must have a properly configured marketing campaign.
    • About Search Engine Marketing (SEM)
      • " In 2006, North American advertisers spent US$9.4 billion on search engine marketing, a 62% increase over the prior year and a 750% increase over the 2002 year.
      • The largest SEM vendors are Google AdWords, Yahoo!, and Microsoft. As of 2006, SEM was growing much faster than traditional advertising." 1
