Internet Marketing - Why 2010 Will Be A White Knuckle Ride For Web Marketers
by Titus Hoskins

For professional affiliate marketers and the companies/products they're promoting, the new FTC guidelines could cause potential headaches and/or legal ramifications since a general blanket disclaimer on their sites will no longer suffice.

Any business (monetary) relationship between the endorser and the company must be made known to the potential buyer. Obviously for those in online or affiliate marketing this could have a great impact if these new rules are strictly enforced. Just imagine all the website owners and bloggers who slap a few banners or affiliate links on their sites to cover hosting or operating costs... will they now have to disclose all these business arrangements?

With these new guidelines, another big issue is email marketing, one of the major marketing techniques of most online marketers. Will a full disclosure be necessary for every email sales pitch? Savvy web marketers know the key to increased sales is in the "follow-up" and the "cookie-ing" of potential buyers; how will the new Guidelines affect this very effective marketing practice? How all these new rules or guidelines play out will make next year a very interesting one for marketing on the web. full article
A painless way to reach 1,000 extra people in 2010 on a shoe-string budget
by John Schulte

One of the most common questions we get from smaller businesses at the NMOA is; "How do I generate more business without spending a lot of money on marketing?"

There's an old saying that still holds some truth; "you need money to make money," so the amount of new business, and the rate at which it comes in, usually coincides with the amount you spend on promotions.

Now, a person could say, with the internet, social media, and email you don't have to spend any money to promote your business, and while there are certainly things that you can do for free, you still have to spend time doing them, and time is money.  full article
