Did you think that Facebook would overcome Google in terms of advertising. Whether it is because of Google “Slaps” where marketers are doing inappropriate things in their promotions or being ignorant of the fact that you can learn skills if you take the time to listen, there are still ways to be successful advertising online. If you think about it, newspapers are getting smaller and disappearing altogether, while more people are turning into the computer to stay up to date to whats new or working now.If you are like the average marketer you maybe have even invested and seen no results because you are setting up your campaigns incorrectly without any vision or guidance. In reality most of us do not have the time to do this and go in blindly to setting up PPC, or pay per click. Why should you spend hours and days trying to learn something totally new right? While you are doing this continued education, you are not spending time getting the right ads driving traffic to your site of choice. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could do the hard work for you and let you know the proper way to get your online marketing squared up.In this economic state we live in today, we can not afford to waste money on campaigns that bring little or nothing back to us in terms of residual benefits. Imagine if there was someone out there who would do this for you when you are at your weakest moments? Imagine if they donated their time to help you become successful. These people are out there, but finding them is sometimes the trickiest. Whether you sign up to multiple forums on your topic (and leave a signature if you have the slightest business sense) and gain knowledge form the posts available or decide to invest in a traffic course, the options are plentiful online. But with certain changes and FTC guideline updates, big brother is making it harder to be successful.Find tips where you can and share them alike.
