Are you concerned about the survival of your company in the new economy? If so, you may be desperate for the internet marketing tools which will set you above the crowd and give you and your family the financial flexibility that you need to achieve your dreams. What is going to provide your company with the edge that it needs to survive and to hopefully thrive in spite of how fast things are changing? Well, if this is in the least bit of interest to you, you may want to incorporate the following principle into your internet marketing tools.
At the time this article is being written, the United States and the world is in the midst of what appears to be the worst recession since the great depression. However, what many people do not realize is that this is nothing more than the transition from the industrial age to the information age. The large corporations are downsizing in order to avoid extinction, because these large dinosaurs of the industrial age no longer have the flexibility to keep up. However, that is just the beginning of the story. Many companies are unable to make a smooth transition with their marketing to adapt it according to the new style of buying brought on by the information age.
You see, customers are now more educated and informed than they ever have been. For years, highly emotionalized, urgency based slam dunk marketing campaigns have been beating customers over the head and dragging them into the cave. As a result, thousands of internet businesses are attempting to use this same approach in their internet marketing tools, and are wondering why they are not getting results. The reason is that customers now have the tools to fight back. They are more educated and informed than they have ever been and that is driving their buying decisions more than urgency and emotionally charged marketing.
What does this mean for you as a marketing professional or business owner? It means that if you are not the one who is educating your customers on the benefits of your brand and on how to consume your products or services to get the most out of them, then someone else is who can be a person regulating this work in a small setup of home based business by blog marketing or Advertising Marketing. And the person who is providing this education based marketing content is the company who you will lose against, unless you too learn the craft of good content based educational marketing. Remember what Robert Allen said in 'Multiple Streams of Income': "No matter what your product is, you are in ultimately in the education business."
Today, your marketing is either education based or you are on our way to extinction which opens the door of even better home based business opportunities. In your internet marketing tools, you have to be generous with your information and easy on the hard sales techniques which are slowly becoming irrelevant. Think of the new marketplace like a bookstore where you walk in and you read the book and you decide based on what you read if you want to buy it. Have you ever seen those books that are shrink wrapped so that you can't look inside them? I have, they are usually not on the shelf for very long because no one buys them.
