Clickbank is the best place if you are a new affiliate marketer.   To SEO Or Not to SEO – You Decide By Matt Pine Whenever I ask an online business owner what they would like out of their online marketing programs, I get the same response: “I want to be on the top of Google search.” It is widely accepted that the first page of Google is the single most effective place to gain massive online exposure. The plethora of SEO companies out there will tell you the same thing. In fact there is so much information on the internet that it would seem that this is really the only place to market an online business. Many online businesses have bought into this theory. In fact so many businesses are so convinced that this is the best approach that they spend thousands of dollars every month on SEO or Google PPC. Naturally the question arises at some point, is this really the most effective way to spend marketing dollars? And the answer is “sometimes.” For large companies, being on the top of Google is of paramount importance. Imagine if you did a search for tennis shoes and Nike didn’t come up. That would hurt their image more than anything. Also, Google is a great marketing solution for business that leverage the PPC format. If a business can get enough clicks at the right price to generate a decent ROI, as is the case for many businesses, then it is a great solution. The issue that arises with Google is price and competition. Imagine if you could receive just as much targeted traffic for less money. Wouldn’t that be great? Of course! Let’s imagine that a certain keyword is searched 100,000 times on Google each month. To get on the first page for a search like this will cost thousands of dollars each month in SEO fees. Even if you don’t make it to page one, as is often the case because there are many more businesses than there are spaces on page one, you would still have to pay large sums of money to attempt to get on page one. Realistically, what would you get in return for placement on page one. Best case scenario, you would receive 10,000 clicks each month. If you spent $5,000 per month to be on page one, then you would be paying 50 cents per click. Not a bad deal right? Wrong. 10,000 visitors per month is great traffic for most online businesses, but $5,000 per month on marketing is a lot for most online businesses. So the question becomes how can a business get the same amount of exposure (targeted traffic) for a more reasonable price? The answer lies in Marketing 2.0. This new marketing strategy takes into account the nature of internet users today. As we are all aware, people search for products and services all over the internet, not just Goggle. Examples of other places people will search are Discussion Forums, Blogs, Directories, and even Social Networks. Marketing 2.0 leverages every major platform to gain additional exposure for online businesses. A Marketing 2.0 program should cost substantially less than a Google SEO campaign designed to generate an equivalent level of exposure. To generate 10,000 visitors through Marketing 2.0 a business would have to place themselves on hundreds, or even thousands of online destinations, such as the ones mentioned above. This can be an overwhelming task for online marketers. That is why it is important to consult a marketing firm that offers programs for Marketing 2.0. Now, imagine if a Marketing 2.0 campaign could generate 10,000 visitors for say $1,000. That would be a much better investment than SEO, right? Of course! The best part of Marketing 2.0 is the longevity of the program. The infrastructure created by Marketing 2.0 will continually drive traffic to your website for months after you pay. As opposed to SEO, where your page would fall through the ranks of Google if you did not work on SEO each month. Now, I hope the benefit is even more clear.
