Over the last 10 years or so, the Internet has become more and more ingrained in our daily lives. People use the Internet to search for almost everything, including local businesses and other local information. With the explosive growth of smartphones, this rush to the Internet for information is clearly accelerating. The question you must ask yourself is, “When someone is looking for the products/services I offer, and they look on their smartphone or on their computer, can they find me?” If the answer is “no”, or even if the answer is “I have a website, but it's not bringing me any new customers,” then this book, full of free Internet Advertising ideas is for you. The bottom line is that if you're not on page 1 of a Google search for your product or service, you are virtually invisible. If you're still relying on your very expensive ad in the Yellow Pages to bring you new customers, you've undoubtedly noticed a sharp drop-off in effectiveness over the last several years. There is a concern that the cost of Internet advertising is prohibitive and that only the major corporations can play that game and win. The truth is just the opposite. More and more, the big boys are falling off of page 1 as Google continues to move toward their local search strategy. Internet advertising marketing is rapidly becoming the media of choice, especially for small, local businesses. This book describes many of the things that you need to be aware of when marketing on the web, as well as some of the ways that you can not only reach new customers, but get your existing customers to spend more money with you, and do it more often. Within this book you will find information such as: – Why mobile marketing is important and how to have a great mobile site… – How social media is changing things up, and how to have a great social media strategy… – Facebook Ads Best Practices… – How to make use of review sites like Yelp and CitySearch… – Things a site absolutely must have to be optimized for success… – And a LOT more.
