5 common misconceptions about internet marketing...


Before you turn your nose away from internet marketing for your business, consider what discouraged you from the prospect in the first place.


A lot of Flash equals a lot of customers

Wrong. Flash actually takes a lot of time to load for some people, and paying for a ton of flashy, moving things on your site won’t necessarily draw in customers. In fact, a good and simple format works far better since it loads faster for people, and flash really drags the loading time almost to a halt (depending on how much flash you actually used.)

What really keeps a site from going downhill and moving up at a slow but steady pace is the content. Internet marketing isn’t all about the cover. Customers don’t look for a good front page to get what they want. They look for something specific, such as a certain service or product. Everything else is just fluff.

B2C vs. B2B Marketing Myths ScentTrail Marketing

B2C vs. B2B Marketing Myths ScentTrail Marketing | Curation Revolution |

Myths Cost Internet Marketers Money
I'm not a big myth believer. As a former Director of Ecommerce and now Marketing Director for Raleigh's leading software and web development company Atlantic BT I tend to believe in metrics and experience.

When I left e-commerce to become a B2B marketer I heard a persistent myth - that B2B marketing was dramatically different than B2C. After two years this post argues there is NO DIFFERENCE between the core of B2B and B2C marketing.

Just FEELS different :).
