Traditional Advertising

vs Online Marketing

As a classified print advertising sales person I know that traditional advertising mediums are not working for you like they use to.

See, up until very recently I worked for one of the largest alternative publications in New York City. The response to ads in the paper use to be so overwhelming that advertisers would have to cut short their campaigns so that they could clear up the backlog!

Well, not any longer. The only thing I hear now is how little of a response the ads are receiving.

After listening to my advertisers tell me that they were no longer getting a response to their ads and hearing the same thing from colleagues of other large circulation publications, I started out on a quest to find out why.

Along the way I found out what you can and should be doing to help make your advertising work.

What Is Adwords, SEM,

SEO and PPC?

Before I go any further, I’m sure you’re asking what the heck is SEM, SEO, Adwords and PPC? And, why do I need a website, how do I get one and how are these things going to help me get a response to my advertising?

SEO: Search Engine Optimization

Google's flagship advertising product. Offers pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, and site-targeted advertising for both text and banner ads.

The AdWords program includes local, national, and international distribution. Google's AdWords text advertisements are short, consisting of one title line and two content text lines.

One of the things I can tell you is that advertising is much more than placing an ad in the paper and hoping for the best these days. You have to be active participant when placing ads today.
