Headache - Whose Marketing Numbers are Correct?

With internet marketing there are zillions of new companies trying to sell you their services. All claiming to be the best. All have exclusive connections.

Marketing has always been my nemesis. I delete and block so many marketing emails I have a hard time believing others don't do the same. 

They now charge for guarantee Twitter & Facebook connections.  Are they real customers or fake numbers? 

Everyone has a way for the numbers to appear MORE impressive, but the numbers are not what is getting noticed. We are learning that they can be faked. 

Fiver sells 250 Facebook connects for $5. I got an email saying get 50000 twitter followers for a few hundred dollars, but are they real people searching for your services or blank accounts set up in India for professional "Clickers".

I started to try a Facebook ad and even though it said it did not go through.. around 2am in the morning Facebook did put it through and I saw within 2 min my entire budget get spent from professional "clickers" that never have and never will actually read my posts or books.

Google Ad Words set up 73,000 impressions and I got clicks which maxed out my budgeted allowance, but were they anything but professional "clickers"? Sales didn't show it.

There is a global economic recession and everyone is trying to find a way to make money, and claiming the golden goose on the web can never be disproved, so why not? But the more we flood the view ports of our genuine target market with rubbish numbers, the more we will get ignored and the information glut will be the end of the medium.

Over saturation will kill us, just like junk mail most often finds the trash bin without being opened. Target marketing is suppose to actually target those you have a need for our product or service, but that targeting has been replaced by huge numbers that even our customers are learning to  ignore.

If companies really want a low cost marketing that actually works, it is with relationships. Online relationships have value, but they have to be genuine, people to people link ups. 

So the best possible marketing is to hire those who live online, mostly cause they are handicapped or restricted from leaving home... and make them liaisons for your company. Give them over-the-internet training, with the instruction that they are to strike good will and help bolster sales and respond to reviews and write comments on blogs with the goal to have 800 real people they know the names to and their Facebook information and work that group for the company. 

When I see Press Releases that flood the market, or twitter feeds that just retweet your stuff for a fee... I am not going to follow them? Why would I? When I want something I just have to search, even though search engines rank now for money and it is almost impossible to get into the top 10 of your field, unless you have a headline saying you are a mass murderer or a YouTube video of an non-faked stupid occurrence that just happens to hit the viral scene.

What is true on the web... that is my focus. When we accept numbers as validations only, we are going to be hurt and taken. Value is in content.  If you don't value what is being offered, please don't look at just the numbers. 

Now where is my Aleve, my headache is killing me.. Hugs!

There are lots of companies which claims that thiere products or services are best to do that they irritates us some times. Like add popup links or do telephonic calls or spam messeges. There are noting to do that a good marketing needs connectivity with the customers.

The issue that you raised in your blog is really very serious, and most of people lose the quality and integrity of such subjects, when they try to pen it down. But, your job is well done.

Hope everyone notices that the comments above really have nothing to do with my subject matter or my ability to articulate my stance, they are people placing comments to tie into their website & services. They are maximizing their SEO by typing compliments they hope I will not remove. Sigh. Even with an honest blog the use of it is cannibalized with irrelevancy. Hope you don't fall for this type of marketing. Hugs

The only way to choose the best marketing companies is to read their reviews in the internet. Users who have tried the products are the best way to get the idea of choosing the best products. I guess you got the idea.

Internet marketing has transformed the way you can do business. The Internet has changed how we think, how we act and how we shop. Your customers are using search engines, social media and mobile devices to find the products and services they need.

One great thing about the United States is that virtually anybody can go out and start a small business. All it takes is some know how and some hard work. While having a lot of money helps, you can start a business with little or no starting capital. Thanks a lot.

I agree that opinions clash. And when they do, we naturally adjudicate between worldviews to decide which is morally superior. But what does that mean, really, if no worldview is morally superior?

Will Chan's Review on Monday, November 18, 2013 3:53 PM
Every person is facing these kinds of problems and it's very difficult to tell that who is providing the best services. Most people do the negative review and search engine is also failing to catch these kinds of spamming techniques. I also receive many emails about different kinds of servers on daily basis that make me sad and search engine should think about it.

How happy I am to have now found a really wonderful web-site as this. It truly is people like you who really make a genuine difference currently through the suggestions they share.
