Don’t Be A Marketing Dinosaur

If you have any kind of online business, I’m sure that you are aware that advertising and marketing are not what they used to be.

Today, you need to be more clever and more involved to promote your business.

This is clear from this infographic by Ladders, a site that helps people find jobs.

I have taken few week off blogging to concentrate on other areas of my business, but I’ll be back very soon.

Keep in touch!

    Hey Sylviane,

    I’ve been blogging since 2010 and I have seen a huge change in marketing, specifically online marketing. I used bandit signs, fliers, and even postits to market. The bandit signs worked ok, but it wasn’t enough. A lot of the marketing tactics and tools were expensive and you were using mass marketing.

    Now days you have way more options to choose from! This is why I love been in the internet age where using marketing tools is more cost effective and you really don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. You’re going by the same rules as you do with offline, but it’s much more convenient.

    Thanks for sharing Sylviane! Have a great week and Happy New Year!

      Hi Sherman,

      Yes, there are so many ways to promote our business online anywhere from completely free from paid, but content marketing is the best in my book.

      Thanks for coming and have a great day!

    Hi Sylviane,

    I too just like Sherman here have seen a huge change with online marketing. There are many ways we can market in a less expensive way than five years ago.

    The more I learn and apply the better I find business is. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be a “marketer” but the journey has taken me there and I’m loving it.

    Enjoy your week,

    -Donna

      Thanks for sharing, Donna.

    Hey Sylviane,

    I’ll agree both with Sherman and Donna too. Since I’ve been online I’ve seen a drastic change with the way things are done.

    Just from the background I come from having done affiliate marketing, the way we marketed our information no long works. Things can change that quickly so if you don’t stay up with the times and continue to learn what works and what doesn’t then one day you might wake up and everything just be dead. Just like putting all your eggs in one basket and that basket sprung a leak overnight and you lost everything.

    I had never considered myself a marketer before I started blogging but the more I blogged the more I learned and I just love it. I actually love the change myself because I love the direction it’s going.

    This was a fascinating infographic, thanks for sharing it with us and we hope to see you sometime soon. We miss you!

      Hi Adrienne,

      That’s right, what once used to work great, no longer works at all. I was just telling Don earlier today how back in 2006-2009 I was writing awful articles for my clients who had me stuff stupid keywords in a short articles. As you know, back them it did work, but things change. Everything does.

      Just few days ago, I was watching the story of TV in France, and what they used to do then would make us laugh today, but back then no one laughed 🙂 Because things evolve all the time, and marketing is no different.

      Thanks for you feedback, Adrienne, and glad you enjoyed the infographic.

    Good post, Sylviane. I am the one who thought of becoming a marketing dinosaur when I started my online business

  • Kathleen says:

    Marketing I have learned by trial and error. The problem is people tend to be totally centered around their product. It is a must to be “other-centered” – how can you provide value for others? What are their needs? Once you master that concept, it becomes easy!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Kathleen and welcome to my blog, even though you seem to have found two posts that are guest posts 🙂

      Yes, those two questions are vital to be able to provide what our target audience needs.

      Hope you come back read my posts 🙂

    It is right what they say: Excess of everything is bad. Overdoing it can sometimes have a negative effect..

    I started doing affiliate marketing 2 years ago. Firstly, because i was eager to know what the fuss is all about. Later, because i was fascinated by it. It kind-of became my hobby & I was addicted too.But, then digital products gained my attention.
    So, I mixed these two concepts & now I sell digital items (usually ebooks) on my blog & it is still is quite interesting. But, more than selling, I enjoy creating something valuable and unique to help customers 🙂

    What you have here is a great blog, Sylviane Nuccio
    Keep writing & keep updating
    Cheers 🙂
