The Vast Universe Of Marketing: 135 Types And Counting

March 5, 2014


Many people call themselves marketing experts. I’ve seen guys who have only been in it for a year and call themselves “Marketing Experts”. Even though I have been in this field for a number of years, and an expert in many areas, I still do not consider myself an expert. That is because in the world of Marketing it is changing everyday. It is virtually impossible for one person to stay on top of every single thing in the Marketing world and be an expert on everything.

Two of my friends that I am always getting advice from with the latest and greatest Marketing tools is Joel Comm and Jim Kukral. Both friends I do consider to be experts in their field, because they have had great success and continue to be on the leading edge of Marketing. In 2009 I wrote a book on Marketing, I spent 5 years of research on it, by the time it was published it was already out of date and I had to keep updating it. I found that the Marketing world was changing so much everyday it was exhausting just trying to keep re-editing my book.

Marketing has changed a huge amount since then and many tools I used are out of date. For example the way Google Analytics worked 5 years ago is definitely not the same today. Just like everyone else Google has to add new tools to stay ahead of the ball game. Technology and Marketing have now gone more toward the mobile apps, and those are even more statistics that are being monitored. 

I know that even with how fast everything changes even  Joel Comm and Jim Kukral have friends they talk to to get updated advice on certain things. As big as the Marketing world is I think its virtually impossible to be an expert on every single thing in the Marketing world, it’s like trying to manage the universe when each star requires full time effort to keep up with what’s changing. How many different categories do you think there are? I came up with at least 135 different types of marketing. I know it’s not everything, and there are many more changes going on everyday.

Blogging: Not Just a Hobby Anymore

May 29, 2009

Blogging is a great way to express yourself, keep in touch with family and friends. Blogging is not just something you do for fun anymore. It is a great tool to also increase traffic to your website and your business. While we have had a tough economy, it’s also one of the best avenues for free advertising. There are many ways you can blog and make money. I see blogging as one of the best Marketing tools to help boost my business, and any leads I get from it I see as a bonus to what I am already doing.

Blogging has been very successful for many people, but don’t count on it to be a stable income. What you want to do is build multiple streams of income. Most successful bloggers have been doing it for several years. I have been now blogging for one year, and I am happy when I do get the occasional paid blogging job.

Twitter Marketing 101: Do you tweet?

October 30, 2008

Twitter has been the latest trend in social media network marketing. For those of you that don’t know how twitter really works you are truly missing out on something huge. What ever your use for twitter it can help you meet other people that have the same interests as you. Twitter can help you gain an income that you may have never thought imaginable. It can and will bring more traffic to your website when used to it’s fullest potential. Twitter is currently the fastest growing internet network marketing source on the web. You will find all types of people from all walks of life around the world that tweet on twitter. If you don’t know what a tweet is, it is a short little sentence about what your doing in 140 characters or less. Here are some different types of tweeters you may encounter on twitter.

  1. One Timers – Those that sign up but never use it again.
  2. Occasional Users – Are those that use it once a month or less and for special occasions.
  3. Weekly Users – Are those that will tweet up to a few times a week but never daily
  4. Daily Users – Are those that use it at least once a day, sometimes will take weekends off.
  5. Extreme Users – Are those that use twitter every day and use all avenues and devices to tweet such as cell phone, Facebook, MySpace, Squidoo etc.

To be successful with twitter you should maximize the usage. This is one of the easiest things you can do that doesn’t consume a lot of time.

  • Send a text message and tweet from your cell phone.
  • Link your twitter account to other network marketing sites. You can tweet remotely from these sites.
  • Follow everyone that follows you. By doing this you will create a snowball effect and get more traffic to your website.

There are many other ways to maximize twitter. How and when you use it can determine how successful you are. I initially started as a Weekly user, then graduated to a Daily user. When I was a weekly user I found that very few people were watching me and the amount of users were under 20. Since then I have graduated to a Daily user, my traffic on my website has more than doubled as well as the amount of people that watch me. I wen from 15 watchers up to 60 watchers in less than a one month period. I found that this was producing much more exceptionable results. So do you tweet? Which type of user are you? Find out what twitter grade is. I am trying the Extreme User method. Follow me on twitter and I will let you know how it works out in about a month.

There are so many different ways of networking on the internet, and I am finding out about more every day. This is a follow up article on my study with Twitter. After I listed my post, I now have more followers on Twitter. How do think this effected me? I now have more people paying attention to my blogs thus driving more traffic to my website. I believe with Twitter you can expand on your network of people and get people who are genuinely interested in your blogs to follow you. It’s like having your own fan club.
