Why Should I Market My Business Online?
There are a lot of people out there who are considering starting a business – whether from home, or a conventional business – and trying to decide how to best market it. There are also many people who currently own a business – whether successful, or simply breaking even. Some of this business owners do mostly offline marketing (word of mouth, newspaper ads, flyers) and are considering adding online marketing to their campaign, and some have never considered online marketing, nor do they know much about it. Which ever group you may fall into, it doesn’t really matter. At this point in time, I’m not going to say marketing online is a must, but if you’re not doing, it you’re giving up a lot of business – especially if you sell a product or service that can be used anywhere in the world. If you’re selling vitamins, jewelry, health and nutrition products, online education, book, e-books, etc.
– why would you not want people in Europe and elsewhere to buy from you? Why would you want to restrict yourself to your town or state? It doesn’t make much sense. By putting your business online, the whole world becomes your market place. It’s quite a cool feeling to see money deposited into your account from a customer in Indonesia. Furthermore, if you’re marketing a product or service that you truly believe in, that you truly feel can improve people’s standard of living and society – then isn’t it your duty to get in front of as many people as possible? Hopefully, you’re in business doing something you’re passionate about. If you’re just out to make a buck, well that won’t last long.
There really does have to be a greater purpose behind what you’re doing. The internet allows us to connect with people anywhere in the world. Using Voice Over IP (Internet Based Phone Service) allows us to speak to anyone in the world for pennies on the dollar. We truly live in an historic period of time. If you’re marketing communications services (VoIP, cell phones, internet service, etc.) you may not be able to market to the world, but at the least you can market to the entire nation if not also Canada. Either way, there is no reason to limit yourself to your immediate location. At this point, I hope I’ve made you aware of the most obvious benefits of marketing online. There are many ways to do this – be it Pay Per Click, Ezines (online articles), backlinks, or solo ads – so educate yourself on the benefits, costs, and experience necessary to apply each of those successfully before you jump into it. If you do so, I promise you’ll be ecstatic with what it will do for your business to get online.
