How many people pay for online Advertising?

Hi all,

Just wondering what percentage of people on here actually pay either monthly or annually for business advertising online for either text links, banner ads? On Google, Bing, Anoox, etc.?
And do you find it effective? If yes, what is the most effective online advertising method?
Thanks.

Those who need instant results and get maximum customers for their business and services from any where. They need multiple clients from everywhere not just from their near by location.

That is bullshit. If it were true, Ford, General Motors, Microsoft, et alia ad infinitum WOULD NOT EXIST since online Advertising did NOT exist until RECENTLY.

mmerlinn, you really are a complete Moron. Arenr you?
After all you Moron:

1st, Ford, General Motors, Microsoft, etc. as Wall Street based companies have 100-Million+ Advertising budgets, so they can spend 10s of Millions of Dollars on TV, etc. Advertising which of course 99.99% of other businesses whom do not have access to such Money cannot.

2nd, Ford, General Motors, Microsoft, etc. are spending Tons of Money on online Advertising too.

Here are just some example of how much Big

companies such as GM spend on online Advertising:

http://adage.com/article/digital/gm-roars-forward-digital-ad-channels/125748/

"The country's third-largest advertiser is getting ready to shift fully half of its $3 billion budget into digital and one-to-one marketing "

So Wall Street based companies with access to Billions in Advertising money did not need online Advertising as we small businesses do with $100 to $1000 per Month in Advertising budget.

JessiClown, apparently you are TOO STUPID to know that GM may NOW spend money on online advertising, but they dit NOT start spending money there UNTIL AFTER they became the LARGEST AUTO MAKER IN THE U.S. So, what I stated still stands, that GM et alia WOULD NOT EXIST IF BUMPERCRAP'S STATEMENT WERE TRUE.

Please contact a local school and sign up for a REMEDIAL reading course. Not sure it would help you, but it surely is worth a try.

jessica you are right on the Money. This mmerlinn guy has NO idea what he is talking about. I mean he actually says:

"GM may NOW spend money on online advertising, but they dit NOT start spending money there UNTIL AFTER they became the LARGEST AUTO MAKER IN THE U.S. "

WOW! That is so stupid it is absolutely worthless to talk to this guy further. After all, GM became the LARGEST AUTO MAKER by spending MORE Money than any corporation in US History = You need to spend Money to make Money.

LOL, GC apparently has a reading problem also. Sure GM spent TONS of money on advertising BEFORE the internet, BUT had you read the thread you would (hopefully) have understood that my point is that BumperCrap made a false statement at the beginning. NOWHERE did I dispute that GM spent money getting to the biggest car maker. I just disputed BumperCrap's statement which says that you CANNOT grow without online advertising and gave GM as one example of his fallacious statement.

1st, I did not give the example of GM, you did! Or are you that stupid that you cannot not read the above notes!

2nd, it goes without saying that before the Internet Big and Small companies spent tons of Money on Advertising, since Advertising is life blood of a thriving business. And that since the Internet many have moved bulk of their Advertising online.

The above are basic facts. How can you argue about them is WOW.

So here is an interesting new fact: Priors to online Advertising Small businesses could not really afford Advertising as giants like GM could, because they have access to Billions of Wall Street Money which Small businesses do not. Internet Advertising has made Advertising affordable to Small businesses whom can now Advertise with few $100s and get good ROI whereas b4 Internet you needed $50,000+ to do a small Ad campaign.

Bumpercrap cannot read either. NOWHERE did I say HE gave GM as an example. I, as in ME, provided that example. Too bad his cognition level is so low.

2nd, if one is going to make a blanket statement, it MUST be qualified, and Bumpercrap FAILED to qualify his assertment. He made a FALSE statement AS WRITTEN, and now is failing to take RESPONSIBILITY for his falsehood. That is the typical modus operendi of a CHILD, not an ADULT.

A lot of companies use online advertising. This market was globally valuated at 161 billion dollar for 2015 and is expected to be around 330 billion in 2020... However, it is important to outline that a lot of small businesses lose a lot of money with this. In fact, if you have no enough resources to create good conversion funnels which drive real conversion rates and valuable margins then you will not be able to compete with the big companies that are doing this very well...

Those who want serious traffic to their Site pay for online Advertising. Otherwise chance of your Site being easily found is on par with winning the lottery.

And as a small business owner I can tell you that you can not get better and more lower cost Advertising than here Anoox non profit search engine & Social. This become crystal clear to us after we Advertised on Big Wall Street media sources such as Google, Facebook, etc. and tried Anoox. WOW is all I can say in the difference.

Duh, getting serious traffic to the site is NOT good enough. All that will do is increase your costs without any benefits.

Getting traffic to your site that CONVERTS INTO SALES is more important than just increasing traffic. Only when 100% of all traffic converts to sales does it matter whether you get serious traffic or not. Getting serious traffic and ZERO sales is a recipe for DISASTER, so JUST going after SERIOUS traffic is simply NOT enough (cont)

Well did I say we got more Traffic that did not convert into more Sales!
Of course we have gotten very good conversion from Traffic to Sales from Anoox Traffic, better than what we got from Advertising we did on Wall Street Journal, Radio, Google, etc.
And to say that: " Only when 100% of all traffic converts to sales does it matte" is absolutely insane! If you get 5% conversion rate fro Traffic you get, you are doing great as a small business owner.

Yes, very True. Even if 2% of your Traffic converts, that would be very good Advertising results. After all a full page Ad on Wall Street Journal will cost $50,000+ and much more, and you have:
1- No idea who actually saw your Ad
2- Who actually came to your Site
and of course the chance of making 100 times of that $50,000 in Advertising fees for 1 Ad to WSJ in more sales, is next to none.
So online Advertising is God sent for small businesses.

You welcome. But in fact I am really amazed as to how many People I meet do not know that Anoox non-profit search engine & social network offers the best value in Advertising for small businesses such as ours! I mean so many of my friends and colleagues are so brain washed by Big Media that our only choice for Advertising is Google and other Big Media outlets and do not know of this amazing Anoox site that is mind bugling to me!

Well, advertisement for business is mandatory. Without investing its impossible to earn. Modern promotional Technics have been changed due to internet and exceed of mobile devices use. mobile marking, email marketing, online promotions, search engine marking all these things are new ways. Relive me it give output compare to traditional magazine advertisement. all you need to be mart while investing in advertisement actually its mandatory. We do advertisement for out Web hosting company in UAE name *** SPAM FILTERED ***, got handsome output from many online advertisement platform including Anoox

You are right about 1st pat of your message, that is:

But then lost all credibility by SPAMMING us at the end of your message by posting your Site :(
