What Is Global Internet Marketing

It might be natural to think that internet marketing is actually the same thing as global internet marketing since you can access web content from all over the world. But if you’ve decided to market your products or services internationally, you will have to do it in a way that offers the best site and most appropriate message to your various audiences.

Among other things, this involves choosing the right language and interface for your users’ locations while taking into account the multitude of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) factors for a global marketing campaign. As many of you are aware, the internet enables less expensive and efficient online international distribution options for media products and informational types of products. Software companies are the most obvious examples of those that can save by distributing their products online all over the world.

When it comes to SEO, one of the most important technical decisions you need to make before getting started with your global Internet marketing campaign is how to manage the many international domains. What you decide doesn’t just potentially affect your rankings, but also how well you will be able to manage each of your sites and even how much you end up investing in this marketing endeavor.

There are two options when it comes to launching websites in different countries. First, you can host all of the different language variations on one site and separate the languages by subdomains or subdirectories.  The second option is to create a separate site for each language you are targeting.

If you choose the first option, you will probably have greater centralized control when it comes to the site’s management and better SEO because all of the links will be coming in to one singular domain. This method can also be more effective when it comes to suppressing the possibility of duplicate content in the search engines.

If you go with the second option, you will probably spend less. You can start with one site and then add others one by one if you feel it is feasible. Contrary to the first option, by having multiple sites, you will rank better in the country-specific search engines.  Because using this method allows you to set up country specific hosting, you can target your SEO efforts to specific countries. It often makes sense to host your site in the country being targeted.

Another important concept to understand at the onset of your global internet marketing campaign is that you can’t do your keyword research in English and just translate to your target markets’ languages in order to be successful. You need to do extensive keyword research in the language of the market you are targeting.

The best case scenario would be to have a native speaker supervise or do the keyword research. The very least you should do is to use a foreign language/English dictionary that includes idiomatic expressions and is as local to the target market as possible.

Effective Internet Marketing Through Ezine Advertising

Many people have heard about or utilized E zines at some point in their lives. They know that these are electronic newsletters that are published on the internet or delivered to subscriber’s inboxes.

However, most people do not know that publishers of these e zines have massive mailing lists. Some of these have thirty thousand plus subscribers. If your site is listed within these e zines you will often have an immense surge in your traffic and in customers that visit your website and make purchases.

The question that most people have is how they go about getting there site listed within the most popular newsletters. The first option is to place your ad in an ezine for a price. There are wide variations in prices and availability. Some publishers also offer solo mailings or solo ads to their subscribers and fellow advertisers. These offers allow you to pay the ezine publishers to send your email advertisement to their entire list of subscribers. This is often much more expensive than putting your ad in their regular ezines.

As with any internet marketing campaign, you always want to track your ezine results. This will let you know whether the money that you are spending is giving you effective results or not. Some ezines have mailing lists that work very well, while others are very ineffective. The specific wording of your advertisement can have a huge impact on your results. You want to word your advertisements as effectively as you possibly can so that you can maximize your results.

If you utilize ezine advertising in your campaigns, you should be tracking your results. There are some services that you can subscribe to that will track your ads for you. The money that you will save with these services will be just as much, if not more, than what you will spend if you are wasting money on ads that are not effective and of no use to you.

Another way to effectively utilize ezine ads for your internet marketing is by submitting articles to the ezines and ezine directories that are found all over the internet. Most editors and publishers of ezines want quality content and often do not have any new, effective ideas themselves. If you are a good writer and have interesting topics that attract readers of newsletters, then you should definitely start submitting your articles for possible submission to the ezines.

Having your website get recognition in newsletters for free is a definite way to boost your traffic. However, there is another benefit that is much more important. Every article that you submit to an ezine or post an article announcement site, you have the opportunity to include your URL in the response box at the bottom of the article. This gives you consistent links to your website and gains exposure to your products and services.

Whichever way you decide to go, if you submit articles or pay for ezine exposure, you are guaranteed results if you are doing things properly. It pays to take time to research your options and the available routes before you make a decision. This can save you time and money in the long run.
