The concept of global village where helped making countries and continents as a single virtual entity, there it also opened new horizons for companies to sell products and services around the globe. Internet is one of the most powerful tools or modes for marketing these days. Internet market refers to a broad concept which encapsulates different techniques in itself such as online marketing, email marketing, web marketing, and all other tools which are used for marketing of one’s goods or services on internet.
Internet marketing as discussed before is not a narrow term and is affiliated with many business concepts and models such as referral marketing, affiliate marketing, search engine optimization, search engine marketing, and social web marketing etc. Surprisingly it is relatively cheaper than other marketing techniques and yet very powerful and result oriented. World’s internet user population is increasing day by day. The internet users are from all the age groups ranging from 8 to 80, so you can do your product marketing for all age ranges (depending upon the nature of product or services which you offer).
Social network websites such as Twitter, Facebook, Tagged, and MySpace has made it quite easier to do internet marketing. Other websites such as Digg, Stumble upon and MSN can bring reasonable amount of visitors (which later on can become your potential customers) to your website or product page.
Internet marketing is not one time action rather it is a continuous and cyclic process as displayed in image below.
To put in a nutshell, you can really get benefits from this type of marketing strategy if you really plan it well. Among major internet marketing strategies, some include building a good website, having good search engine ranking, building a specifically large email contact list, publishing articles and blogs, using Google adwards, and continuous review etc.
