How to Create a Media Pyramid for your Business Plan

Start your Internet business model with a media pyramid that shows the hierarchy of your products and revenue

Are you in the process of writing a business plan for a new online venture, or an extension of an existing online business?

As you know, having an online portal for your information is essential for growth. Using the web as a new medium and not just an extension of your brand is critical. But this is a new beast, and to be prepared, you must plan. This holds true whether your online business unit launched six months ago, or hasn’t launched yet.

Has Online Social Networking Replaced Real World Networking?

There are many books and blogs already devoted to the “how to” of social networking. This is not a post about how to set up an account and get started. This post is about why you should get started and how you will benefit from social networking.

Hybrid Landing Pages: The Priority Code Landing Page

The priority code landing page lets you know where sales leads originate in order to control advertising expenses.

The priority code landing page is a hybrid dedicated landing page that’s part of the online order flow. A publisher might drive users to a priority code landing page where they can enter a proprietary combination of letters or numbers (alphanumeric code) in order to qualify for a special discount or express service.

Don’t Forget the End-Goal of Your Link-Building Efforts

Why it’s critical to have one authority page, ideally a Rapid Conversion Landing Page, as the reservoir for all your internal and external link juice.

We often write about the importance of researching, documenting and managing your keyword universe. It’s a process you must pursue and manage with discipline if you want any chance of getting Google to drive you consistent, targeted website traffic.

However, your keyword universe is only as good as the website architecture that supports it. If your site isn’t built according to and around your keyword phrases, your chances of attracting traffic from the search engines will be limited.

Using Paid Media to Build Email Circulation

Paid media programs balance your Internet marketing system

While patience is a required virtue for earned media programs, paid media programs offer the Mequoda Marketing System operator the opportunity for quick results with a reasonable ROI (return on investment). Each of these programs involves finding and buying traffic by spending money to buy advertising, leads or lists.

Using Earned Media to Build Email Circulation

Should your internet marketing system include earned media?

Email circulation and revenue per email subscriber are the two key metrics for every Mequoda Marketing System. The first priority for system operators is building email circulation. The goal is to attract as many subscribers as possible to the free email newsletter and let the newsletter’s content do the job of filtering the good from the bad. The key concept is that customers who signup and stay active subscribers are those most likely to buy paid information products.

Setting Up a Mequoda Marketing System – Phase 1

The Internet Hub is a one of seven Mequoda Website Archetypes discovered by reviewing more then 2000 media websites. Like all Mequoda Website Archetypes, it has a limited set of core functions that make it efficient for completing a limited group of user tasks that are key to the success of an online publishing operation or Mequoda Marketing System.

How to Start and Run an Effective Online Marketing System

Key components of the Mequoda Internet Marketing System

The launch and operation of a Mequoda Marketing System can be divided into four phases. Most of the steps in each phase are then repeated over and over again to build email circulation and monetize customer relationships.

Higher Revenue from Full Systems

You need a full marketing system to maximize revenue

Let’s face it: Internet marketing is complicated.

It’s based in a constantly evolving environment and requires a comprehensive system to be effective.

As yesterday’s Daily explained, the foundation for that system should be an Internet Hub.

Hubs attract users and capture their information for your marketing file for later monetization.

Setting up and designing your Hub is a large part of what we call Phase 1 of an Internet marketing system’s creation.

The Internet Hub Archetype

Mequoda views Internet Hubs as one of the most important website archetypes available to a publisher. Without a well-designed, well-marketed Internet Hub, an online publisher is forced to rely on other websites and other media to drive targeted website traffic.

How to Start and Run an Effective Internet Marketing System

The Mequoda Marketing System is comprised of the person in search of the information—the user; the publisher of the information—the operator; and the partner, or partners who work with the publisher to send traffic to the publishing website. The goal of the system is to acquire, build and monetize customer relationships. The system relies heavily on user and partner activity, a characteristic that allows the publisher to generate higher than average revenue per employee.

Do you use the Internet as a Product Platform or a Marketing Channel?

A question we’re often asked is whether the Internet is best used as a product platform or a marketing channel. And the answer, of course, is that it’s both. But most publishers have been very confused about the difference.

Our estimation is that in 2006, publishers should be generating at least 30 percent of their total revenues online. Meaning 30% of their overall revenue should be coming from a combination of two sources:
