  6. 6. In a Nutshell<br />Internet Marketing is just another marketing channel for branding and selling. When compared to traditional marketing strategies, it encompasses everything the world has already been using for marketing before the Internet was born. <br />For example, <br />Word of mouth = Social Media<br />T.V. & Commercials = You Tube<br />Print (Ads, Newspapers, Magazines) = Digital Format<br />

Information carries fast in HK.”<br />“Businesses see the Internet as a social forum, not much for business.”<br />“Businesses are too lazy and feel the return on investment is not fast enough.”<br />
  9. 9. Why Businesses Need to Ramp Up on IM Strategies?<br />The consumer behavior has changed drastically. <br />Decisions are made on the Internet before even calling you or visiting your physical location.<br />Easier to influence decisions, especially if you’ve provided poor service<br />Price matching increases competition<br />If you are not found on the Internet, people will go to competitors first<br />

  13. 13. How Companies Need to Look at Internet Marketing<br />Spend more time learning and understanding their current customers behaviors<br />Identify niches and create more targeted marketing<br />Spamming can work, but opt-ins have higher closing ratios and customer retention<br />Don’t try to take on everything, have a plan, run some campaigns, analyze, improve<br />Just another vehicle to market, but with a lower cost and reaching a lot more people (word of mouth)<br />
