    Jack, do you mean something like article marketing vs. traffic exchanges or something like that?

    To a certain degree I think it depends on what you are marketing. The program I use integrates affiliate marketing along with MLM on the back end, and all kinds of free strategies to promote (see sig).

    For example, I love to make homemade soap as a hobby and at one time thought about selling it. I can market it online by writing articles, joining forums and discussing it with my website in the sig, giving out soap making tips, etc.

    I can do the same for a financial product. So the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

    The marketing concept of building an organization around the profitable satisfaction of customer needs has helped firms to achieve success in high-growth, moderately competitive markets. However, to be successful in markets in which economic growth has leveled and in which there exist many competitors who follow the marketing concept, a well-developed marketing strategy is required. Such a strategy considers a portfolio of products and takes into account the anticipated moves of competitors in the market.

    To succeed in marketing your marketing must be strong enough to move a customer from the point of just attracting their attention to inspiring them to actually take action - which is making a purchase from you. There are four steps to doing this. There are four small business marketing steps that you can use to evaluate and put your marketing into check, today I want to share them with you.
    I think the biggest mistake small businesses make in marketing is making everything so difficult for consumers to understand that they don't get it.
