Looking for some Internet marketing advice.

Friends are telling me about SEO and other forms of online marketing. It's all new to me, but it sounds like I am missing out. Is anyone doing any of this to advertise their business?

Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experienced it first hand also. It was this organization called fidelity loan Finance (f.l.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of mine also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them +12527760453 and get a loan from them. Thanks.

Ann, you are correct about the benefit of looking into SEO. But be sure to do your research and find a quality, reputable company or individual who will take care of your needs. I have a few different businesses and hired a firm to do some SEO work for me for my wife's school and I received bids ranging from less than $100 per month to $1,000s per month. I selected a firm at the lower end of the cost range and they had one of our sites in the top 2 positions on Google search with 30 days. My results are not typical but it does work. As a result of the SEO work, we have reduced our cost per click marketing from about $500 per month to less than $100 per month for SEO and advertising.

That's a great questions. SEO (search engine optimization) or other words pay per click, can be expensive should be budgeted well. Using local directories, that push traffic to your site, by targeting the zip codes that you choose. Placing your ad in front of thousands, who are surfing on social sites, research and shopping. With today's technology, local business ads can show up where the consumer is surfing. Video marketing, is also very popular, they can be expensive, but directory's offer video presence also, look for one that has everything inclusive, you should not have to pay extra for your business listing, video, pictures,search engine submission , coupon creation and reports on how your ad is working, you need to know you ROI. - Also, what market are you trying to target?

There are also voice broadcasting systems available that offer free lead system with leads less than 30 days old. Were you can broadcast to others about your opportunity or let your local consumers know that you are in the area. here is where I got mine:
