HAVE YOU BEEN BURNED BY
INTERNET
MARKETING?


With internet usage in the United States set to increase from it's
current level of just over 254 million
users to more than 288 million users by 2015, many business owners in America are looking for ways
to attract those users to their websites
-

a sentiment that is often capitalized on by internet marketing
companies, w
ho are keen to profit from this rapidly expanding advertising outlet.


Unfortunately, the tangible results of those efforts so far are proving to be less than stellar. Recently
released statistics compiled from various focus groups all over the nation have

proven that of the
majority of business owners that have tried to market their businesses online, most see little to no real
-
world sales
-

with many businesses often paying thousands of dollars per month on Pay
-
Per
-
Click
advertising campaigns, and having
nothing of benefit to show from it.


This leads to a major problem for business owners, as they rightfully feel taken advantage of and are
reluctant to try internet marketing again, and yet with internet budgets nationwide forecast to increase
from 2011's
level of $9.1 billion to approximately $20.9 billion by 2013, business owners can't afford
to NOT have a presence online.


So What Are My
Options?


There are two main ways to promote a company online
-

via PPC advertising (
P
ay
-
P
er
-
C
lick) or by
organic SEO
(
S
earch
E
ngine
O
ptimization).


The goal of both is essentially the same
-

to significantly raise the visibility of your business' website
on the internet, so that when a potential customer is looking for a service or product that you provide,
your company
shows at the very top of the “search results” list
-

a list that is provided by the user's
search engine of choice (think of Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL etc....).


Essentially, as the name implies, Pay
-
Per
-
Click advertising is based on the business owner payi
ng a set
price for every time someone clicks on their advertisement, which is strategically placed on the internet
screen page to try and catch the user's attention.


The problem with this, is that the various internet search engines are designed to delive
r CONTENT to
their users, NOT advertisements. As such, those advertisements generally end up being placed to the
left and right of the main sector of a computer screen
-

which many scientific studies have proven
-

people look at only 50% of the time (at b
est)
-

compared to 88% of the time for the listings shown in
the main sector of the search engine results (that's the area in the middle of the screen).


At this point, you may be asking yourself
-

how often do I click on those ads to the top, left and rig
ht of
the
screen?
Or do I just look for the main results listed in the center of the
screen?


Independent test results released by both Yahoo and Google have proven that most people look at the
results in the mid
-
center area of the screen first (slightly t
o the left of center), and then if they can't find
what they are looking for there, their eyes will drift further down the center of the page and eventually
-

if they can't find what they are looking for
-

into the advertisements located to the left and ri
ght of that
center section.


As you would expect, the lower a search result is placed on a screen (
example:

the second, third, fourth
listing on the screen etc....) the less the chances are of getting the attention of the user, which most
people would agre
e, is common sense.


So, with this in mind, we can conclusively gather that the results getting looked at the most (and
clicked on the most), are those that are predominantly in the center of the screen
-

which
is:


a)
Where

you want to be and,


b)
Where

Pay
-
Per
-
Click ads are NOT found.....


…. and this is exactly where the SEO (
S
earch
E
ngine
O
ptimization) comes into play.


What is
SEO?


SEO is an abbreviation for “Search Engine Optimization” and as mentioned earlier, is an alternative to
Pay
-
Per
-
Click
advertising. The way that SEO works, is that via a variety of methods (usually through
social networking and similar media outlets), an SEO agent promotes your website and builds
“authority” into it
-

generating and building that authority for the specific

search terms that you want
your business website to get noticed in.


For example
-

if you have a plumbing company, a good SEO agent will promote your company for the
search word “plumbing”, so that after a period of time, in the eyes of the search engine
computers
(which are owned and run by Google, Yahoo, Bing & AOL) your website becomes known to them as
an authority on the subject of “plumbing”.


As a result, when a potential customer goes to Google.com (or any other search engine) and types in
that they

are looking for a plumber, the Google computers will recognize your website as having the
most authority on that topic and consequently, will display your website as the best match for that
particular search term.


The
result?
Your website shows up as the

No.1 selection for the search result, the user will click on the
link to your website, and will then be able to decide if they want to use your services or not.
Admittedly, it won't automatically force a sale, but like any bricks and mortar store, if you
can get
people into the store, chances are they will buy something at some point.


Naturally, this SEO “method” can be applied to just about any type of service or product known to man
-

basically, if someone is looking for it, good SEO will put your websi
te in front of that user.


How Long Does It
Take?


To effectively promote your website in a search term that will actually generate people visiting your
website, it will usually take around 3 months of continual work to get your website into a position of
authority for the results in the chosen category.


Naturally, there are some variables to this time frame, and for more difficult (and usually more
lucrative) search terms it may take a little longer, but this is where a good SEO company will be able to
he
lp streamline your SEO strategy, so that you get to those users as quickly as possible and to start
getting clicks on your website and those clicks converting into $$.


Despite being a more organic process that takes a little longer, the upside of SEO adve
rtising is that
unlike a PPC campaign, once you get to the top, you will be in that top spot all the time
-

24 / 7, for a
lengthy period of time
-

as the longer it takes to get to
No.1,

the harder it also is for your competition to
remove you from that No.
1 spot..... with continual maintenance, you can stay in that top spot and reap
the benefits.


In direct contrast, a Pay
-
Per
-
Click campaign takes your advertisement off that page as soon as your
marketing budget is reached, which leaves you with no meaningf
ul presence on the internet at all
-

most likely at a time when a potential customer might be searching for your exact services.


The facts are that at the time of writing this article, Pay
-
Per
-
Click advertising is currently receiving
25% of all
search
-
engine traffic, and yet earns 80% of most businesses online marketing budgets. By
comparison, SEO yields 75% of all search engine traffic and yet garners less than 15% of most
company marketing budgets.


Based on the statistics mentioned earlier, wh
ere do you want your marketing dollars to
go?
To what
everyone else is
doing?
Or to what will
work?!
