SAN DIEGO, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Online marketing trends 2013 will likely see include many of the major trends that have been building up within the last year. 2012 brought some major changes to the way things are marketed online, with the addition of new widely popular social media sites, as well as changes to Google's search engine algorithms. There will be changes in the year ahead, no doubt, but good online marketing strategies will ensure that these changes don't affect the business negatively.
Here are a few of the top marketing trends 2013 is predicted to see more prominently:
Affiliate marketing – Online affiliate marketing is becoming increasingly popular with new online entrepreneurs. This business model allows those who use it to build a residual income. They will only need to do their research, join the right affiliate programs, then implement the right strategies to effectively market their affiliate products.
Once their system is in place and they are generating leads to their parent affiliate sites, they will no longer need to be actively involved in getting leads and they will never have to think about keeping an inventory or fulfilling customers' orders because the parent affiliate company handles these aspects of the business.
Learning how to choose affiliate programs that are worthwhile and also how to market the affiliate links can be a bit difficult to newcomers in the field. But there are many free affiliate marketing training systems that can help new entrepreneurs to learn the skills they will need. Internet Income University is one such program that offers both basic and advanced lessons for new and seasoned affiliate marketers.
Mobile Marketing – Experts estimate that there are more than 6 billion mobile phone subscriptions in the world. Unlike computers, a mobile device can, and usually is, carried everywhere by a person. Taking advantage of this constant connection with customers is the goal of mobile marketers.
In this form of marketing, advertisers focus on tailoring their strategies to the unique features of mobile devices. Having a "mobile" version of a website will enable people to visit the website from their phones. Since phone screens are much smaller than a computer screen, unless the format of the website is changed for the mobile version, the view on a mobile device will be off and in many cases unreadable.
Mobile marketers also make use of text message advertising campaigns and may also focus on creating mobile apps for their company or website so that they will be more accessible or useful for their customers.
Loyalty Marketing – Another of the big marketing trends 2013 entrepreneurs are focusing on is loyalty marketing. It makes sense that it is easier to keep customers than it is to attract new ones, so rather than spend all the effort on attracting new leads, internet business owners are also devoting their resources to ensure that they are providing the best content and features that will keep customers coming back for more.
Finding ways to make customers feel appreciated is certainly not a waste of time, especially in this day and age where consumers are more and more vocal about their experiences with business and are better able to share that experience thanks to social media and consumer review sites. Word of mouth spreads quickly online, so ensuring that the message being spread around is a positive one is something that marketers should prioritize.
These are some of the top marketing trends 2013 will see. For more information on the best marketing opportunities for the year ahead, please visit InternetBusinessInnerCircle.com

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
