I found a post from Jonathan Leger titled “The Advantages Of Internet Marketing” that I need to share with you today. With all the dismal talk about the world economy, one can’t help but ask themselves “Can I weather these economic times?” Jonathan makes an excellent case for the affirmative here.
Let me summarize the reasons he believes internet marketing is a great profession to be at exactly these times.
When times are tough, companies look for any way they can to cut costs. One of the biggest expenditures they have is advertising with a lot of this going to TV and radio which are hard to track accurately. The internet is different. When an ad is placed online it is possible to track exactly how many people viewed it, how many clicked on it and how much money was made from it. This way, advertisers can finely tune their campaigns which has a direct link to helping their bottom line.
For these reasons, any of your advertising driven sites should continue to do well because this advertising medium will continue to yield the best ROI.
As more and more people become victim to layoffs and job losses they need to look elsewhere for income. Many of these people will turn to the internet to fill this void. In order to make money online these people will need to be armed with quality information provided by people they have experience with and can trust.
Yes, there are going to be even more sharks out there trying to bilk these people out of what little money or hope they have left. However, if you have established yourself as a quality content provider you will be counted on more than ever to help them out with real solutions to their problems.
Leveling the Risk
Internet marketing, by its very global nature, allows you to spread out your risk. If one country’s economy isn’t doing so well, others can make up for it. You don’t have to have your eggs in one basket when you do business online.
