Internet Marketing – Advantages and Limitations

internet marketingInternet marketing has a number of advantages, and is becoming increasingly popular. In a world where more and more users are being connected to the internet every day, the ability to market your business effectively is becoming more crucial to success. That said, there are also certain limitations on marketing online that will need to be taken into account. Knowing the pros and cons of online marketing will allow you to promote your business and products in the most effective way possible, and here we’ll take a brief look at some of the various advantages and disadvantages of how web promotion works.

 Internet marketing has many advantages that make it an attractive way to promote a business. It is fairly inexpensive, especially when compared to other forms of advertising, when it comes to the ratio of cost for reaching a target audience. Businesses are able to access a gigantic viewer base for a small amount of money, and consumers are able to look into and purchase products when it is convenient for them. This in turn allows businesses to convert their advertising into sales much more quickly than ever before. The general marketing plan for an online business (or a business that buys advertising online) is dependent on the cost volume profit analysis.

 Another distinct advantage of internet marketing is that the statistics involved in any given marketing campaign can be recorded and reviewed with ease. This in turn allows marketers to analyze what works and what doesn’t, and if their products appeal to certain age groups or people in particular areas of the world. There are various types of advertising plans that will provide different types of statistics, such as pay per click versus pay per impression.

 Limitations of internet marketing include the requirement that consumers have access to the technology required to access the advertising in the first place. While many consumers have televisions, and therefore are able to access advertising and marketing in that form, they may not have internet access. Fortunately, internet access is becoming more widespread, and the younger generation is very likely to have some sort of access to the internet. The consumer is also not able to physically interact with the product before purchasing it. The major barriers to entry for marketing a product online are the low measurement of impact, the poor internal capability, and the difficulty in convincing senior management to move forward with it.

    Great blog! I actually love how it is simple on my eyes as well as the info is well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  3. finance major says:

    Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.

  4. new weight loss says:

    I found this blog through Facebook (someone posted it). After reading, I of course clicked Like and also shared it myself. More power to you.

  5. Recently saw your comment on my own blog and that’s how i came to know about your site. Each article I have read is very well written and to the point. I would also like to say, not only are the posts well written, but the design of your web-site is excellent. I was able to navigate from post to post and find what I was looking for with ease. Keep up the great work you are doing, and I will be back many times in the near future.

  6. Let’s face it….anything is tough if you don’t love doing it.

    You can’t buy marketing for your business on a showroom floor the way you buy a car. USP’s don’t just roll off assembly lines every 45 seconds. There will be few who can rival you. And nobody will be able to sell somebody a road map to your pot of gold for $49.95 either.

    If I could encourage you in any way possible, it would be this: To be patient with yourself as you explore and unfold the unique giftings that you alone possess, and to wrap those gifts and talents into your products, the services you offer, and your marketing, so that NO ONE can knock you off.

    The world will richly reward you for fulfilling that vision.

    There are plenty of cubicle drones and paint-by-numbers people in the world… I hope you’ll aspire to put out some of your own original pizzazz, put your own fingerprints on what you do. Do the thing that you alone can do.

    To your success.

  9. Internet marketing is without any doubt the new way to market the products and service and the businesses not utilizing its power are leaving a lot on desk for others. The internet marketing to promote a business is an engaging process and should be handled properly. This should be a cautious process because the business is before hundreds of thousands of people and they have the means to express their opinions fully and freely.

  10. That’s a great article, thank for your post
