A Free Learning Program By MadamSplash
(Initially Published 2000 Last Update January 2013)
Simply The Best is a program where I provide the internet marketing advice that I wish I had received prior to setting up this website back in 1994.
The internet can be a source of unimaginable marketing success if used correctly. You can also spend a lot of time and money venturing up wrong paths, never to discover your true potential.
Obviously back in 1994 this kind of information wasn't readily available yet, because the internet was in it's infancy as a marketing tool - sort of like Facebook is now.
Splash is very much an example of how many kinds of businesses can be formed and promoted from anywhere, to anywhere in the World, utilising the World Wide Web.
I CAN RUN MY BUSINESS FROM ANYWHERE
I can run my businesses from anywhere in Australia, or overseas, and indeed I do as I market the various Splash identities from a PC Screen.
In the past 20 years Splash has operated a number of organisations and services that supported clients across Australia and around the World. The Internet has allowed us to communicate with interstate staff and international clients as if they were right there with us in whichever town or city we might be at the time!
ONE OF THE LONGER STANDING MARKETERS UPON THE INTERNET
As one of the longer standing users of the internet for marketing, it has been a remarkable metamorphosis to watch unfold. In the earlier days we did not have all the free resources that are available today, an internet marketer needed to understand SQL Programming, Web Design and the rudiments of Hosting Services.
Nowadays modern marketers require no technical skills and can tap into a myriad of free resources plus copious quantities of on-line knowledge to help them along the way.
BUT WHERE DO I START?
There is a lot of information, and I would go as much to say as the amount of information is now overwhelming and quite difficult to know exactly where to start. This will be a good place to start, and you can take as much or as little information as you need.
This program is a pay back to a resource that made many opportunities possible for myself and Splash partners.
Splash began as general marketers in Sydney in 1991, long before the internet was considered a viable marketing tool. After a long standing career in Business Development and Sales Promotion that included the experience of assisting more than 2,000 products and services onto the Australian Market place, tragic circumstances of the time were to force me out of big business to remain at home to raise my grandson ... looking back however, this time permitted me to experiment and apply my knowledge to this new medium, and become an authority in the field.
Yahoo was only one year old and Google was just about to be formed when I ventured into the pretty blue screen, naturally it's unrecognisable compared to then. Even now, the web is constantly evolving, new players coming in and new vulnerabilities are being uncovered, it is VITAL that it's users act as watch dogs to protect and improve the service.
UPDATED EACH YEAR
I commenced documenting my internet marketing discoveries in this program in 2000, and continue to update it with new findings each year. (This is the 2013 edition, and I apologise if some bits are not updated yet.)
You will find that this program contains valuable Internet Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation knowledge that has been gathered and recorded over an eighteen (18) year period, much of which has been utilised for my own internet marketing success, and generated millions of dollars worth of enquiries and sales for ourselves and our clients. This year I will add my thoughts on how we can use Social Media in internet marketing.
Remember - Marketing is about making money - if you are constantly giving it away, you will send your self broke, your company broke and Australia broke! Think about that!
To gain the maximum benefit from this program, I suggest that you follow the progression of contents as itemised, and you will then be able to re-visit important parts of the program when needed later.
