Big Box Store Internet Marketing Lessons

Online business

 

Surprising the Internet marketing lessons you learn when shopping at a big box DIY store.

I went to one nearby to pick up a couple of items. Inside the entrance was a simple display manned by an eager looking duo that captured no one’s attention.

Usually the first thing people do when entering is look up at direction signs taking them to where products are they’ve come to buy. A blah display for solar power gets no one’s attention.

I spoke with the solar power folks for a moment asking how many sales they get selling as they were. You can guess the answer.

Why do so many companies market so poorly? What’s the upside to paying a couple of folks to stand for hours behind a banner giving no reason for anyone to pay attention? Oh, by the way, I understand private residence solar power installation isn’t doing well these days.

Searching for what I wanted to buy store signage gave me only general direction. No personnel were available to direct me to what I needed. It took too long to find what I wanted.

On my way to checkout something caught my eye and I asked about it. Yeah, before I could not find someone to help with my purchase. But, it was easy to grab a worker to ask about something in my sight line I didn’t need or want.

That pleasant guy knew nothing about the product. Although he worked in that department he could not answer any basic questions. Nor did he direct me to the store’s web site for information. I could see a few computer terminals nearby. It would be very easy to take me to one and look up the item on the store’s site. Nah. Nothing like that happened.

So, what did I learn Internet marketing lessons did I take away from that shopping experience?

12 Sure-Fire Low-Budget No-Budget Marketing Tips

Almost Free - canstockphoto27172572

 

Let’s set the record straight about making money online. Just about anyone can make some money on the Internet.

I often joke when people ask me how to make fast money online saying, “Sell your car on eBay.” Well, that’s more accurate than a bad attempt at humor. Want to make fast money online? Sell something on eBay or Amazon. I do that often.

Amazon provides me good return for my work. But it is not my primary method for making money online.

You see, no operation makes it selling just one thing in one size and one color. Yes, Henry Ford did that successfully. That’s when he made and sold the famous Model T. There were no options. The only color was black. But he sold to an eager market. And people bought 16.5 million of them. The Model T Ford is the #1 selling auto of all time.

Walk around a dealership today. Look at all the stuff you can buy. Today auto dealerships sell lots of branded stuff from beyond a selection of car models. You can buy everything from floor mats to apparel. Or key rings, coffee mugs, and even bicycles and related gear.

Apply that thinking to your online business.  That way you pick up easy money along the way.

Search Engine Strategies

seo canstockphoto5764453 Wonder why you don’t make more money online? Perhaps it has something to do with SEO. Your online earnings are determined by how easy it is to search and find your product/service offer.

Most likely your competitors pay attention to Search Engine Optimization. SEO is simply how to get more traffic directed to your offer by Google, Bing or some other search engine. More in this case means a higher ranking when a user searches using words associated with your product offer.

Search Basics

Let’s simplify SEO. The Internet is basically a method for connecting people with information. Search engines rapidly scan the Internet for information someone seeks.

They do this by sending bits of code called bots that look for what you seek. These bots crawl the web looking for data based on the keywords a person specifies in the search bar of a search engine.

Google is the #1 search engine in use. More than 1.1 billion people use Google each month. Compare that to Bing with 350 million average monthly users. Go to eBizMBA Rank for the list of the top 15 search engines in use today.

Online marketers do not have to know the mechanics of search engines. They just have to know how to use them to benefit a  business or campaign. We tend to make too much of technology making Internet what it is.  Some use that complexity to their advantage selling how-to programs.

A basic key to optimizing your site for search engines is selecting the best keywords associated with your offer. I use a great keyword tool Long Tail Pro. It is inexpensive, easy to learn how to use, and gives me a competitive advantage in some crowded product niches.
