PRINCIPLES OF VIRAL MARKETING

Viral marketing has definitely gained its popularity over the global network. More and more businesses are adopting this marketing strategy to gain their fair share in the market. The approach developed by Hotmail in increasing its number of subscribers is one classic example of viral marketing.

How Hotmail Did It

Hotmail is one of the first web-based email provider that gives away email addresses for free. Their marketing approach starts by giving free web-based email addresses and additional services. Each of the messages sent with a Hotmail address has an advertisement at the bottom that goes: “Get your private, free email at http://www.hotmail.com.”

Then, of course, Hotmail subscribers will use the service to send messages to their friends and colleagues. These friends and colleagues will get the message and read it, and then clicks on the link at the bottom. They will also sign up and be a subscriber like what the sender did. Then these new subscribers will also email their own set of friends. The cycle goes on and on.

This is why viral marketing has the power of reaching thousands, even millions, of people in such a short time and with little effort from the one who initiates it.

Elements of Viral Marketing

Dr. Ralph Wilson, an e-commerce consultant, named six elements or basic principles of viral marketing. A viral marketing technique need not have all of these, but the more principles it follows, the more powerful the strategy will be.

1. Give away products or services. This is the first and most basic principle of viral marketing. When a person hears the word “free,” it elicits the interest in him and will avail of that free product or service, for sure. Having cheap or inexpensive products may also do the trick, but “free” will give much faster results.

Patience is important in viral marketing. Giving away products for free may not earn profit today but if the business gets to develop customer base by giving something for free, it will soon generate income for them.

2. Easy transfer to others. The medium used to carry the marketing message to other people should relatively be easy. Viral marketing has been powerful over the internet because of the ease of communication the technology offers. Email, web sites, software downloads are just some examples that can be used in viral marketing.

Also, it is better that the message be short for easy copying and transmission. Simple and short but straight to the point is best, just like Hotmail’s advertisement at the bottom of each email sent out.

3. Scalability from small to very large. When viral marketing is used as a marketing style, it is best that the business is prepared for rapid growth. In cases of increasing web traffic thru viral advertising, the web owner should make sure that the host server is prepared enough to handle the expected increase in traffic within a short period of time.

This should not be taken for granted; else, it will defeat the purpose of doing viral marketing. Once people notice that the site takes a long time to load, they will just leave and forget about it. That means an automatic loss of potential customers.

4. Exploit motivation and behaviors. A marketing strategy that builds on motivation and behaviors of people for its transmission is a definite plus. People love to be popular. This motivation will drive them to communicate to more and more people to be known.

5. Utilize existing networks. According to social scientists, an average person has about 8 to 12 members in their close network of family, friends and colleagues. Moreover, internet gives way to creating a bigger network circle. Learning to use these existing networks in viral marketing will yield better results.

6. Take advantage of other’s resources. Viral marketing need not consume all your resources away. Using other web sites in posting your articles, for example, will get them read by a large number of people without the need of creating your own web page.

It is best to learn these basic elements or principles of viral marketing first before actually doing it. Being to aggressive without doing your homework may just lead to damage instead of success. Try to adopt those that may be applicable to your product. Use all of the principles, if possible, for a more successful output.

WEBSITE ACCESS AND USABILITY

Usability is one of the most pressing issues in the field of website development nowadays. The usability of a website is tested against its simplicity which makes it easy for people to navigate the site as fast as possible, therefore making access to information easier.

Accessibility is a concept that is intertwined with the concept of usability. It refers to creating the website content available to all people.

Context

The issue has caught the attention of different sectors of society. Why? Because 1 out of 5 people in America possess some kind of disability and this figure translates to around 30 million Americans. The figure is still increasing, with the coming of age of senior citizens. During the past decade alone, a dramatic increase of 25% was seen.

Why the Internet?

One might ask, “Why is the Internet a central focus in this issue of usability?” The Internet has transformed the lives of people during the past decade. People have been able to do things that they were not able to do before, this includes the people with disabilities. People who are impaired don’t have as much opportunities compared to people who are well and able. The Internet has provided them avenues for communication, information gathering, social interaction, engaging in cultural activities and it provides them with employment opportunities. However, statistics have shown that the potential of the Internet to provide these certain opportunities is still not maximized because the people with disabilities are hindered by usability issues from using it to the fullest.

Stakeholders

The issue of usability is not only watched by institutions which are related to giving support to people with disabilities, most of the sectors of society are closely watching its progress. Institutions which are involved in governance, education, media, public services and even the business sectors are observers in the game.

Benefits

The benefits of improving accessibility of websites will not only benefit the people who have impairments but will affect the whole web community. Businesses, services, information campaigners, everyone will benefit.

Many people are calling for developing websites using a universal design approach. This is a way of developing web content which would accommodate the widest range of users. Some features of this said scheme are: provision of inter-operability of applications; access for the disabled; localization and customization.

Recommendations for Improving Accessibility

Listed below are some of the key recommendations from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 which was developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative of W3C on how to improve the accessibility of the contents of a website.

1. Provide alternatives to audio-visual content

Not all people will be able to use different kinds of content. These people may be disabled or may have a lower version of Internet browsers. Movies, sound clips, animations and other contents should be translated into text alternatives so as to provide information to the broadest range of viewers.

2. Developers shouldn’t rely on color alone

Many people are impaired in color differentiation. Developers shouldn’t rely too much on the use of colors to relay information in the websites. Charts that are color-coded should be modified and the background and foreground colors of the websites should have enough contrast to enable people with color differentiation impairment to easily navigate the site.

3. Clarification of the use of natural language

Content developers usually mark up the changes in natural language in their websites. They should be able to identify the dominant language that is used in the site so as to avoid confusion.

4. Control of content changes that are time-sensitive

This issue particularly involves people who have visual or cognitive impairments and those who are not able to read texts that are moving quickly. Movement is seen as an over-all enhancer to the look of the site, but it may pose some problems to people with cognitive impairments.

5. Accessibility of user interfaces that are embedded

Objects that posses their own interfaces should be made accessible, and alternative solutions must be provided if this is not possible.

6. Provision of orientation and context information

The provision of information on how the objects are organized is important to provide people with guidance on how to access information.

There are other ways of improving a website’s over-all accessibility to make it more usable. Developers should take into consideration the different people who are going to view their websites and make them focal points in the designing process.

It will take some time before your web site will show up in a particular search engine, like Google, so it better to use the one that you currently have instead of switching to a new one.

2. Know who your target audience is and aim for them.

If you are in the manufacturing industry and a user types in your product in a search engine, then you would immediately have your target right in front of you.

As soon as the user hits the Enter button or clicks on 'Search', then the person will be lead to your web site.

Make sure that your target market will get 'hooked' on your web site. Once the search engines show the link to your web site, their job is done.

It is a good thing to have an option to send a link or an article to a friend, which will add more users and increase your client base.

There should also be various ways to browse through your web site, to fit each user.

A person might find it to difficult use the scroll down option so you should also provide hyperlinks which are accessible to them.

5. Concentrate on the web site content.

Regularly update the content of your web site so that old and new users can find something new when browsing through your site.

Make the content brief and precise. Writing a content which has more than 600 words will make the users lose interest, since most of them do not actually read but just skim through the text.

BULK EMAIL MARKETING

How Will It Affect Your Business?

There are many different marketing strategies nowadays. People are getting more and more creative in advertising with the addition of recent technologies. Getting other people to know about a new product or service in the market has now become much easier because of the advent of the internet.

The invention of the internet or the World Wide Web is the most innovative and useful tool for any kind of business. It provides for easier communication with different people from different parts of the globe. It also allows sharing of ideas, concepts or anything you can think of with other people a lot faster and better.

One way to communicate over the internet is thru email. You can send almost anything thru email to another person. Organizations and establishments utilize this tool a lot to promote their products to the most number of people possible.

That is how the concept of bulk email marketing emerged. Bulk email marketing can be defined in two ways depending on who is being asked. Some people refer to it as a way of marketing – mass marketing, direct marketing, or opt-in list – of a product or service to more than one individual simultaneously thru their email addresses. This is the point of view of the senders of these email messages.

However, most people refer to this kind of marketing technique as SPAM. These people are usually those who receive these marketing and advertising emails. SPAM has become a universal term that refers to any unwanted, unproductive and unethical activity done over the internet. For bulk email marketing, SPAM refers to unsolicited junk email.

Commercial emails have benefits both for the consumers and the business. However, this has been abused by many companies. Almost all commercial emails now are being tagged as SPAM even if they contain legitimate information.

That is why bulk email marketing may be dangerous for your business. Once a single email from your company is labeled as SPAM, it may cause your entire company’s email addresses to be blocked by the email service providers such as AOL, YAHOO and MSN. Moreover, your site can be blocked, too, by the search engines, and worst, it may be kicked off your hosting service provider.

Getting rid of SPAM emails and sites is what most ISPs, hosts and search engines want. These people that they consider spammers cause annoyance to their customers and a huge waste of their bandwidth. That is why they do take action once they get a sufficient number of complaining customers.

Given these information, it is best to think twice before sending email advertisements to several people. You may be able to buy email addresses from those companies claiming that those people opted-in to receive your messages and promise a huge conversion rate. But better think again. These companies may just be fooling you to make money.

Thus, it might be best to think of other ways to send advertisements or promote your products. It can still be possible with the concept of bulk email marketing. The only difference is, instead of sending the email advertisements to unknown people, send it to your existing customer base.

You can create an email that seems like a follow up, then you can add your advertisement for your new product that they may also be interested in. Then you can also ask for a few referrals from them who may also be interested in your product. Doing this will make your way of advertising more legitimate. In case that someone will accuse you of sending spam email, you can prove to them otherwise by showing proof of relationship with the customer such as receipt of purchase or an email from them.

In case you are just starting your business and have no existing client base yet, you may want to advertise first using other methods than sending bulk email. You may risk losing your business that has not even started yet.

There are several ways to promote a product or service over the internet. You just have to be creative and imaginative. Marketing and advertising are critical factors to your business’ success. Make sure you do it in a nice and professional manner; else, you will be in for some trouble once your commercial email is tagged as spam.

GOOGLE ADWORDS 101

Google is one of the most popular things out there in the Internet. Google dominates the field of search engines. According to a recent study, Google is responsible for generating more than 70% of the clicks to web pages that are searched through search engines.

Google has also devised a way to be able to put Internet marketing through a whole different level. Because of its market dominance, it has the capability to be able to set up a new pay-per-click system which aims at matching sellers and buyers. Google has developed what is not referred to as the Google Adwords.

What is Google Adwords?

Google Adwords is one of the most promising advertising opportunities that abound in the Internet arena. It is a pay-per-click system that advertises websites which have the highest bids for a certain search word or phrase.

If one would look at the window of an Internet browser and search something on the Google search engine, he will notice a section containing “sponsored links” at the right-hand side of the screen. These are the Adwords advertisements. These are websites which pay to be shown whenever a certain phrase or word is searched through Google.

Bidding

Business bid for their preferred keywords when they use the Adwords system. For example, a business that is engaged in selling laptops may opt to bid for search phrases such as “laptops for sale” “cheap notebooks” if they are applicable to their products.

Bidding in the Google Adwords system to get the prime spots is primarily based on two factors: the click-thru-rate and the amount of the bid. The amount of the bid will depend on the bidder himself. Bids can go as low as a nickel per click up to fifty dollars per click. The bidder must know how much to spend because the system charges the bidding price whenever the website is clicked through the Adwords system. Another factor is the click-thru-rate, or the rate by which people are clicking the website. Usually, the top three sites that are shown on the Adwords screen are the most popular and have the highest bids.

How to Engage in Adwords

If one is looking into using the Google Adwords system as an advertising tool, he can read the guidelines and the terms of conditions through the Google website. There are a few steps which we could tackle on how to start using Google Adwords.

The first step is account creation. Google will guide you through this process. However, there are several things that one should take into consideration when creating an account. He should take into mind the different strategies that he would want to employ right from the start in terms of the selection of key words and the combinations of these words to be able to maximize the returns from engaging in this endeavor.

He should also target the right market in terms of selecting the right language and countries which he would want his ads to appear. If one is selling products which would be of no use for citizens of other countries or if the option of exporting the products is not available, he might as well stick with his own country. He wouldn’t want to get charged by generating clicks from people who do not belong to the target market.

The creation of an Adgroup is also a basic step in using the Google Adwords system. One should be able to conceptualize and design an enticing advertisement and select the right combination of keywords.

Advertisements

Google will ask an advertiser what he would want to put in his advertisements. The advertisement should contain a title line and a body. The title line is composed of a maximum of 25 characters and the body should contain a maximum of two lines which contain 35 characters each.

The real challenge in designing advertisements for Google Adwords is to effectively attract customers and get them to click the website. A concise but striking advertisement is particularly efficient in getting the attention of the surfers.

Links

When a prospective customer clicks a website through the Google Adwords screen, a continuous set of efforts should be taken. The link in the Adword should not necessarily be the home page of a website but should be a web page wherein he can find information that is important to him. The link, perhaps, can be the “products” section of the website.

These are just some of the basic things that one must be able to digest to get a general feel of what Google Adwords is all about. One must be diligent in studying the different aspects of this system to be able to get the most out of it.

JOINT VENTURES

All About Joint Ventures

A joint venture is a contractual arrangement by two or more parties that undertakes an economic activity that is subject to joint control.

The following are three types:

Jointly controlled operations
Jointly controlled assets
Jointly controlled entities

Joint control exists only when the strategic and operating decisions relating to the economic activity require the unanimous consent of all parties sharing control.

A venturer recognizes its interest in a jointly controlled operation by recognizing in its financial statements the assets that it controls, the liabilities and expenses that it incurs, and its share of the income that it earns from the sale of goods or services by the joint venture.

A venturer recognizes its interest in jointly controlled assets on a proportional basis. It also recognizes any liabilities or expenses it incurs, its share of liabilities or expenses incurred jointly, and any income from the sale or use of its share of the output of the joint venture.

Since joint ventures are partnerships, businesses can join together to work on a project for a ser period of time. Having joint ventures with other businesses can increase your chances of beating your competition, increase sales and increase your profits quickly.

Joint venture also allows you to save money when businesses share operating costs. This means that all the partners, including you, will share costs for maintaining the website, advertising and other expenses but you will save money because you are not the only one spending for it.

By being a partner, your joint venture partners can give you referrals from their clients. This can really increase your profit and sales. It can also increase your reputation and more people will buy from you. In turn, you will also have to refer your partner’s website. It is a give and take relationship.

Since all joint ventures partners share the workload, you can save valuable time and money for your ongoing projects. This means that you have more time for yourself and also, you will not be working alone. It also creates a sense of teamwork and dedication.

By doing joint ventures with other businesses, you can have a lot of information from other businesses and also, get those information for free from experts.

Joint ventures also allow you to subscribe in discussion groups, online forums, and newsgroups that deal with your target audience. This is great if you want to increase your targeted traffic, and also increases your reputation and credibility. By participating, you also create a long permanent relationship with your clients and partners.

To find joint ventures, try to do this by typing in keywords that matches the product you are selling, or at least related to it. Once the search engine has finished searching, find a potential joint venture partner to present the proposal to. If it doesn’t work out, click on another link of website given by the search engine results on the first two pages.
