More Online Marketing Mistakes You Shouldn’t Do


Previously, we’ve seen some of the online marketing mistakes that are commonly done by those new (and sometimes not so new) to the whole industry. But there are more errors that those who promote their business on the internet do. Here are some of them, as well as some tips that you can use to avoid them as well:

  • Focusing Only on One Way of Generating Traffic/Revenue

In the world of online marketing and advertising, there are many ways to get traffic to your website, which then brings you the sales that you need to make money. Of course, if you found a way of getting visitors to your website which works well and helps you attain your goals, it’s normal that you would want to keep using it. However, diversifying would be a good idea and is actually recommended by some of the top online marketing experts.

Let’s say that you only use SEO to get traffic and your website is well ranked in Google. You may get a lot of traffic, but there is room for potential problems. Let’s say Google updates their search algorithm or a competitor launches an aggressive SEO campaign that pushes you out of that top spot. You would get problems as your traffic starts to drop. Same thing if you’re used to using a certain website, such as a marketplace, to advertise or sell your products on. Problems and disputes can arise, and your account could get suspended or banned. Smaller websites, such as classified ad sites, forums and marketplaces could experience problems, such as being the victim of a hacking attack, server failure or other problem and get knocked offline for quite some time. This can cause you to lose a lot of money each day that they’re down. Or, they could shut down permanently for a number of different possible reasons. Therefore, having all your eggs in one basket when it comes to online marketing is not the best course of action to take.

You may of course have on main way of getting your traffic and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, you should also have some secondary options opened to you as well. So, if you use a certain forum to sell your products, for example, you may want to explore other advertising options, such as different forums, classified ad sites, social media marketing, etc.

There are numerous ways that you can employ to get the traffic that you need to your website. Start by researching them, then narrowing down your search to the ones that would be potentially a good fit for your kind of business. Then, study how they work and start using them on a limited scale. That way, if there’s a problem with your main traffic source, you will be able to quickly switch to another method of getting visitors, without losing too much money in the process. In any line of business, having a backup plan in case things go wrong is a smart thing to do, and for businesses that sell products and services in the online world, things are definitely not different.

The Pros And Cons Of Facebook Ads


Setting up a Facebook fan page can be a great way to generate traffic for your website, but it takes a lot of time and effort. If you don’t have the spare time to work on a fan page, but you do have some room in your advertising budget, you might want to think about using Facebook ads.

Facebook has over 500 million users, and they fall into every age group and demographic you can think of. When you’re setting up your Facebook ad campaign, Facebook gives you all the tools you need to reach out to your target audience. You can use parameters like age, gender, hobbies, and interests to target your ads at the people most likely to click them. If you know who your audience is, you can reach them on Facebook with these tools.

The results of using highly targeted advertising like this are generally pretty good. The odds that each person seeing your ad will click on it are pretty good, and once they make their way to your site, they’re likely to come back as long as your content is compelling.

If you’re familiar with internet marketing and advertising, you’re probably wondering how Facebook ads stack up against Google Adwords. Well, Facebook gives you more direct control over who sees your ads. With all of the options you have at your disposal you can really narrow it down, and make the most of your ad campaign. Google Adwords still has one key advantage, your ads show up in search results. In other words, your ads show up for people who are searching terms directly related to your site. Neither service is “better” than the other, they just work differently. Keep that in mind before spending your advertising budget on either service.

With over 500 million users, Facebook is a great place to reach out to your audience. The results of a Facebook advertising campaign will depend directly on your site, it’s content, and how well you know your target audience. If you have a site with compelling content, and you know your target audience, you can get a high yield for your investment in Facebook ads.
