Very Basics of Internet Marketing Getting the basics of Internet Marketing wrong could cost you a lot of your valuable time and money If you are new to Internet Marketing it is vital that you learn the basics and get them right before you start. To start with you will need a Website to promote you services or products and for this website you will need a domain name. This is the website address that people will type in to go directly to your website, and will start with www. When choosing a domain name it is sometimes a good idea to use a relevant search term that people may use when searching the internet for the services or products that you are offering. This will help your rankings in the search engines for that particular search term and will therefore help your overall rankings. If the domain name youâ€™re choosing is not available I would always try slight variations first before choosing an alternative to .com. It is always advisable where ever possible to use a .com domain name as these are more recognised. Try and make your Website as appealing as possible and relevant to your business. Once youâ€™ve decided on a domain name itâ€™s time to concentrate on the development of your website. Make full use of visual text, graphic designs and colours but be careful not to overdo it with the use of graphics as sometimes this can slow the site down, particularly with people that are using computers that are old or slow broadband connections. Be careful not to use backgrounds that are too bright as this can make it difficult to read the text sometimes, this could then stop users from clicking through the site and therefore leave the site. The majority of the time people are trying to find out information and not looking for a specific service or product. This is the key to internet marketing; you must make sure that the website contains plenty of important general and relevant up to date information about your products or services which you are promoting. If the right information has been provided and this is done correctly then it will help to drive more traffic to your site and therefore generate more sales. I know that these are only the very basics but that should give you an understanding of what is required to get started in internet marketing. It is good that you are here and taking the time to learn about internet marketing It will take time and effort to get noticed on the internet, but once you do you will reap the rewards. You must be willing to learn more skills and be patient. Good luck with your venture.
