The 7 Rules Of Internet Marketing

Posted April 15th, 2010 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Internet Marketing

Here are a few convenient rules of thumb to keep in mind as you start up and operate your own Internet Marketing business:

1 – The 10/10 rule.

This rule says always give your online customers a discount off the list price, but the discount doesn’t have to be huge; either 10% or $10 off will do.

2 – The 99/1 rule.

99% of your affiliate sales will come from 1% of your affiliates.

3 – The 90/90 rule.

90% of the people who opt into your list who are going to buy something from you do so within 90 days.

Therefore you want to get as many new subscribers as possible to make a purchase within that time frame, otherwise, they may never buy.

4 – The 3-month ROI rule.

This rule applies to buying traffic and new names for your list.

It says that ideally the revenue generated by new names added to your list should pay back the advertising cost to acquire those new names within 3 months. If not, you may be paying too much per name.

5 – The 10 X 10 = 100 rule.

If you can increase your clickthrough rates and conversion rates each tenfold, you will increase your revenues one hundredfold.

6 – The 8:1 rule.

The minimum selling price of a product should be at least 8 times the cost of the goods. So a DVD set that costs $10 to make must sell for at least $80.

7 – The 0.1% rule.

Each time you broadcast an e-mail to your list, no more than 0.1% of your subscribers should unsubscribe.

For a list of 100,000 subscribers, that would be a maximum of 100 opting out of the list.

If your opt-out rate exceeds 0.1%, consider throttling back on frequency or improving the content.

Magic Banner Bot

Do you use blogging, Twitter, social networking sites or article marketing to promote your business?

More and more people are discovering the marketing power of these solutions.

But they do have one big ‘drawback’: You must build and maintain credibility with your visitors, followers or friends.

This means you cannot just promote your own products and affiliate links all the time. You need to discuss other things in your chosen niche, including discussing interesting websites.

So you end up linking to and promoting other people’s websites…without getting paid anything for doing it.

Problem solved. With Magic Banner Bot, you can make money whenever you link to or promote someone else’s website, even if the site has no affiliate program and no commercial content at all.

This easy-to-use software works by placing your own ads on other people’s websites, whenever you link to them.

Your ad is like an ordinary banner ad, except that it floats over the page and can follow the visitors as they scroll, making it much more visible and much more likely to get clicked.

You can use this solution to advertise your own products or any affiliate program. All you need is an ordinary banner or image (which are provided by most affiliate programs).

This allows you to easily promote your business and build credibility at the same time.

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too!
