Today Facebook has more users than many small countries and an economy ranked about 25th in the world. As a country or population entity it ranks in the top 30 of any place on Earth. Companies like Google became famous by changing the way we see marketing and how it can be extended to the internet. Then social media changed the web again to make it constructive meeting place for training, education, consulting and just meeting new friends.
Companies like Facebook took meeting people to new heights with their friend system, and contacts browsing. Today Facebook is a hog that chews up contacts and spits out a whole new group of people for you to meet. But how has internet marketing evolved? For many years, internet marketing was a business where people in dark rooms sat around trying to build e-mail lists. Today web marketing has radio stations, television stations, web bots, YouTube channels and a plethora of other utilities. Finally internet marketing can be done through entities like Facebook and Twitter but they are vastly different in how things are presented. For the last ten years, most marketing was either through Google Adwords or e-mail. Now you can put ads on Facebook, Twitter and Plenty of Fish. Any one of these entities allows direct advertising. Now a better question might be how productive is that advertising? Facebook introduced the cost-per-impression concept at level not previously seen. With over a hundred million users, your ad could get seen by millions of people in just an hour! Imagine that. No other forum on the web (other than big news websites) could provide that kind of advertising at a cheap price. But there was more than one website doing this. You could now get a huge number of impressions for a tiny advertising fee. Twitter was a place that you could hook up to and make your daily lot of impressions at NO CHARGE with direct messaging. Internet marketing had come out of the back rooms and could now rack up huge numbers of viable impressions. Marketers were no longer forced to park information in silent e-mail boxes and hope someone would read their messages. You could now rent out the central ad space on Plenty of Fish and let millions of people see your message in less than 48 hours! In short, mass advertising had become affordable. Want to learn more?
