Internet marketing is the use of different tactics online to advertise and sell your goods and services. Internet marketing is associated with several business models such as e-commerce, publishing and lead-based websites where an organization generates value by acquiring sales leads from its website.
Internet marketing is relatively inexpensive when the ratio of cost against the ability to reach massive numbers of perspective buyers in the target audience is compared.
Internet marketing is a cost effective way to deliver quality buyers for your goods or services at little cost compared to most types of marketing approaches available. It is by far the fastest growing advertising method for all companies today.
Internet marketing is all about people knowing each others interests, values and preferences and attracting them to a solution. Internet marketing is a relatively new field in comparison to traditional offline marketing.
It’s a long process where you first build a website and nurture it through its growing pains until you can find a way to place it at the top of the search engine rankings. Internet Marketing is definitely not something that you set and forget, as many would have you believe.
It’s an action plan compiled by you which must be followed through with on a daily basis. It’s an Internet Marketing plan with consistency being its primary objective.
Internet Marketing is a field, perpetuated on some fronts, by lies, fantasy and tales of overnight success which has given different areas such as MLM or Multi Level Marketing a bad name in some quarters.
Internet marketing is an important business building function for any business and is a process not an event, unlike nearly any other form of marketing. It is comparable to traditional marketing strategies in that you will have to determine what works and what doesn’t and continually experiment with newer strategies to help establish your business and make it successful.
Internet marketing is booming and everyone has a great opportunity to benefit from this prosperity as long as they know how to market online and have the patience to stick with their plan. It doesn’t happen overnight.
The most important component of any Internet Marketing strategy is to have a written well thought out plan in place. You must be consistent and apply this plan on a daily basis to attract visitors to your website and you must stick with it through good times and bad in order to achieve success online.
This plan however is not set in stone. Without a doubt, you will have to adjust it and find the right combination of strategies that work for you. There are many and varied approaches to internet marketing and you should try to find not only what works best, but also what you enjoy most.
Pay per click has proven to be very successful for a lot of people over the years but it’s not for everyone. It can be a complex process which you have to be on top of at least two or three times per day. If you aren’t vigilant when it comes to PPC then it could cost you financially and produce very limited results.
For example, you may enjoy Social Networking or the new Web 2.0 as it’s now called and you may be just as successful combining this approach with a multimedia strategy, which is gaining more prominence online everyday.
There are so many weapons you can use in your Internet Marketing Strategy to drive traffic and sales that you should be able to find the combination that suits your needs and also translates into success online. The bottom line is to have a plan, follow through consistently on a daily basis and don’t give up.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
