One of the advantage of internet marketingis the broad reach it has to consumers. The Web is not just nationwide - it's worldwide. This means that your product or service can be viewed by people just about anywhere in the world. Compared to other forms of advertising, Internet marketing can reach a far larger number of people. Television and radio ads just can't compare to a pop-up or banner ad online. Mailings get thrown away and aren't cost effective.

I think this is the future. for example, me and all my friends, we just stopped watching TV. We find everything on the Internet. On top of that, here the targets are really differentiated, which is pretty helpful.

Cleaning Is What i DO!

Internet marketing is selling products online. Sometimes internet products are cheaper and you can find more variety and coupons. Also, internet marketing provides a new thread of not only domestic customers but international customers.

Thumbs up What is internet marketing... hmm, good question

Internet marketing is a communication channel between your services / products and your prospects. In order of achieving any result you have to build up your trust rank between users using SEO, SMO, SEM, Video Marketing, Article Marketing, E-mail Marketing. You need to use all of them, not just SEO or Facebook / Twitter / Google AdWords / Microsoft's AdCenter.

I wish you all good luck with your internet marketing efforts .

Assuming we're talking internet marketing for cleaning...

The definition is easy, carrying it out is a bit more difficult.

The items you should include are a website that's optimized for search engines so people can actually find you on the web. Search is now the #1 way that people look for cleaning services. A recent poll of business-people found that something like 94% never use phonebooks because they actually give very little information (12% said they use phonebooks to prop their computer monitors up to eye level, which sends a very strong message!), and I think it said that 92% of all brochures and flyers get thrown out without even being read. And there's no way you can deliver flyers to every building manager or prospective customer in town. Compare the time and cost of designing a flyer, printing them, developing a mailing list and keeping it current, postage, etc with the $10 a month it costs to host your website and there is no comparison. You can give infinitely more information about your business, videos, photos, etc on a website than you could ever put into a brochure. We have totally abandoned mailing brochures and phonebook ads and have put all of our sales efforts into a very strong website with tons of information.

Other tools are a good strong Google Places listing, a Facebook page, a Facebook button on your website, and an Addthis button or at least html code for printing a webpage and adding it to favorites. All of your contact info should be on every page, and if you have cPanel hosting you can create a simple contact form where people can contact you. If you don't have cPanel you can design forms for free at emailmeform.

Having said all of this, you should also put your web address on your business cards and every piece of print advertising, and then hand out business cards like they're confetti.

internet marketing is so popular now, because the internet is! everyone is on facebook it seems like it, so it makes sense to advertise online, instead of TV or other sources. it's much easier and their are lots of free ways to do that.

another good reply kitschulte, although are you sure you picked out http://admiralcleaning.com/pages/contact-us.php by random in the other message?

Internet marketing falls basically into two categories - natural results (getting to the top in Google etc) and PPC (pay per click). Both are important.

There is lots advice here about these, so I'll only add a little bit. My tips that have not been mentioned:

- get yourself onto as many online directories as are relevant. This is quick and easy and there are lots of directories that will list you for free. Look for general ones such as Applegate and Kellysearch, but there are also lots of industry specific ones.

- don't forget about email marketing too. You can use tools such as Mailchimp (there are lots of others, but that is my favourite) to keep in touch with your customers and let them know about new services or special newsletter only offers

- you can use other tools too such as texting. One of our customers, using our system recently pulled off a report of all customers he hadn't done a job for in the last 3 months or so, sent a bulk text out with a 10% off or similar and got in over 1000 worth of business for a 20 spend! In the UK you need to check people against the telephone preference service, and I'm guessing this is the same in the US

An important aspect of Internet marketing is the Google Keyword tool


Use the keyword that appears in the tool that is related to your search term. These terms can also be used for your Youtube video with a back link to your website. Also put the video on your website. This will greatly rank your website. Use the keyword in google adword and google places.

Email marketing has a opening rate of may be 20%. So yeah it works but mobile marketing has better opening rate.

So my basic list for small cleaning business

1. Website
2. Google places
3. Google adwords
4. Online Directories
5. Email marketing
6. Vehicle signs with website
7. Youtube
8. Social media (only if you're going to be active)
10. Mobile marketing (i don't use but would like to)

Many companies are now using internet marketing instead of TV commercials or mailers such as Valpak. Most people go online to search for goods or services nowadays instead of looking in the newspaper or the yellow pages. To have a strong online presence is very tough and can cost a great deal of money. Be careful of SEO companies promising the world without being able to deliver. I would suggest getting a number of references before hiring any company to perform internet marketing services for you or your company.
