I am a local business owner so I don't need video. Video is for online businesses not local businesses. I have a website isn't that enough? Not if you want to stay ahead of the competition and increase sales. You local customers are using the web to find businesses. If they want a restaurant to go to, they are not looking in the yellow pages. They are turning to their iphones, laptops and blackberries to search what they are looking for. If you can't be found online, chances are many of your…Continue

I had a passionate conversation with my cousin over this idea of "Internet Marketing". He asked as many questions as I can answer accordingly.
One significant question he asked is about how to compete with 'so many people and websites' in this business. This is the first time I'm ever asked such a question since I started out, so I did my best to answer...and my answer must have so impressed his father who overheard it that he said, "Yes yes, this is also exactly what I told my…

One of the biggest issues any business would face is its unique position in the market. If you've not got a unique position, then you'll find that you've got nowhere to "stand out" of the crowd throughout your promotion.
USPs were originally defined around the 40s as a position a company took to make them stand out from their competitors and make the customers of said competitors switch to them. It works as an understandable and tangible reason for people to buy your product, over…
