The Future of Internet Marketing For 2013 & Beyond

Internet Marketing is a billion-dollar industry. It has skyrocketed from just the plain old internet where there is only IRC and some weird colored website into a whole new industry where a lot of people make a living online. The appeal to internet marketing is so great that a lot of people quit their day job to seek for a better opportunity online. It is so appealing in fact, that a lot of people who are desperate for cash have also been trying their hands on internet marketing hoping to earn some quick cash.

In fact, Internet marketing has been going on for so long that it has actually survived a few recessions and there have been no signs of slowing down. If there was anything at all, recessions actually boosted the internet marketing growth because people are seeking refuge on the internet and looking for alternative ways to make money during the recession. With the industry booming at such a rapid pace, the question then lies in what is in store for us in the future on online marketing.

Below are some of the predictions made by expert internet marketers

Blogs Will Still Be The Most Powerful Branding Tool

Blogs when used right can be the perfect branding tool to your online business. This is the case right now and more and more large companies are jumping into the Blogging world to further enhance their branding. It is no longer just the go to tool for Small companies anymore but instead you will see big brands with their own blogs today.

Hence in the future Blogging would become the core to branding online and there is no sign of this trend stopping any time soon. If you do not have a blog yet and you plan to create a strong brand surrounding you and your business, make sure to get that blog up early!

How well your customers do matters

What this means is that today you could be selling an information product in the fitness niche. Hence it is important for you to be as fit as you can and you need to show people that you are successful in order for people to believe in you.

However, in the future your success might not be such an important factor anymore. Instead, it will matter only if your customers make it into the ‘fit’ zone or not. If you are able to constantly produce results in your customers, that’s where you will be sure that your business will survive in preparation for the cut throat competition that you will face in the future

The End Of Expensive Ebooks

The end is near even now for Expensive ebooks that sells for $97. Nobody is going to pay that much for a mere ebook anymore. In fact, the norm these days seems to stick at $7, $37 or at most $47 ebooks. Charging any more than this can easily mean your demise and failure in your eBook campaigns. However, in some niches where the competition is low, a higher priced ebook can still be sold but not in a niche that has a lot of demand and competition.

Say good bye to expensive ebooks. Instead in the future you might be required to sell a real product that is well built such as a video course and even then these products won’t be able to sell at high price unless you are giving a tremendous value and unless you have the strongest branding and marketing strategies. Ebooks will become the marketing tool to help you get more traffic and trust to your products so learn to adapt from this day forwards.

Live Training and Events Will Be the Focus

Because people are tired of losing money and failing from mere ebook instructions, more and more people will start looking into a ‘real’ training course and mentorship to ensure success. Nobody wants to be that common failure so even if it might cost a lot more money. Hence, in the future, people will be more than willing to spend for seminar events or personal training so that they can actually make real money instead of paying for ‘fake’ dreams that will never happen.

If you have not started to build your business into one that gives live training, then you should slowly adapt to this strategy now. Start while you are ahead and show the world results that cannot be matched. The branding and money that you get out of this will be worth your while.

All in all, internet marketing is looking good right now and the future has a lot more in store for us. The amount of people making purchases online will increase to unbelievable heights. In fact, the internet might even replace televisions and the people that does online for long hours will increase.

The internet is going to be where the big money is but the problem lies in weather or not you will be able to get enough trust to get people to pay you for your goods. Changes will be made and people will have to adapt in order to survive. And more importantly of all, your current skill sets will not be sufficient so stay sharp and learn new tricks for your business. Sacrifices have to be made and you will surely be able to be a ‘someone’ in the future of online businesses.
