Marketing Planning - Choosing the Right Marketing Channel

Each marketing technique has benefits and drawbacks so you your job as a webmaster will be to look at the different techniques and choose the best one. There are two questions you can answer that will help you along this road. The first is to figure out which marketing technique will benefit your particular site the most. To do this you will have to see which marketing techniques fit best with your site. For example, if you don't have a lot of content on your site then you won't get much SEO. If you have only static content on your site then e-mail marketing won't help you much because an e-mail newsletter will only work if you have updated content that your visitors will want to read.

The second question will be to figure out which techniques you have the resources for. The main resources I am referring to are time, money, and skills. Pay-per-click, merchandising, and press releases will take money. Word of mouth marketing takes interpersonal skills. YouTube marketing takes technology skills. Viral marketing requires creativity. A good e-book will take time. If you don't have the required resources then those particular techniques may not be available to you.

After you figure out which marketing techniques are possible, you will have to figure out what your planned expenditures, traffic, and profits will be so you can calculate you projected profit and see if the plan should go forward.

Wise Words

What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe that we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying."

Going crazy – doing crazy

I ended up going on a trip to Oxford (UK), visiting some international friends I made by tango dancing, while it also was an opportunity to go dancing in London and Oxford.

Staying over with a friend was very nice and also useful. It made my trip cost way less, while I also had some...

My worry about losing the Queen

My worry about losing the Queen would be that she would still be entitled to take money from the Crown Estates. I hope when negotiations are taking place after the referendum, that the SNP would not go soft on this and on a number of other matters, like being over generous with the entitlement...
