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.

Many people pay for their business advertising, but the percentage is difficult to estimate, maybe between 45% and 60%. Yes, it is effective. The most effective online advertising is by Google Adwords and by Facebook.

I have tried both paid and free services with practically the same results. After some research I found that paid advertisement works if you are willing to spend a serious amount of money or have a unique niche. Not all free advertisement organizations are the same, there are some with low domain authority and there are some with high domain authority. Obviously the ones with high domain authority are the ones you need to concentrate in, the rest are just a waste of time and might even hurt your ratings.

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...

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

Duh. You seem to think that online advertising has existed for millennia. It hasn't.

Businesses got along just fine without online advertising for generations. If you think otherwise, then explain to me how Ford, GM, U.S. Steel, et alia became so big LONG BEFORE COMPUTERS EXISTED.

I think our best choice for Advertising is online Advertising, for small businesses. Since Print, TV, Radio Advertising is not targeted at all as you have NO idea who saw your Advertising or who if any clicked to your Site from such Advertising. So for Print, TV, Radio Advertising you need Millions and Millions of Dollars to reach your audience, and hence only suitable for Big Businesses. And of online Advertising, I have to say that Anoox is by far the best, really GOD sent for small businesses. I just hope Big business does not take them out.

Agree. Anoox is really GOD sent for small businesses to increase traffic since advertising here is like 90% freaking less than Wall Street darling Google. Yet there are some small businesses owners, in fact most, that are so stupid, so brain washed by Google and big Wall Street Media that they keep paying 90% more to Advertise on Google rather than put that money in their pocket and advertise here on Anoox. Go figure!

Really, so if 100,000 other businesses want the same "first page of a search engine" for the same Keyword, how would you manage that in such a crowd? Of course you can not. So if you want to have a real viable business, you need to spend the Money to Advertise to stand above the Internet crowd.

You work with your meta tags by beefing it up. Then you spend the hours needed to submit the site to every search engine you find. Now yes this takes hours of your time once a week at least but for people like me who do not have the money to spend on advertising, you spend the time.

So yes that will get you maybe a tiny amount of traffic. And in rare cases that may actually get you much more traffic. But to really build a business, you need to have a real Advertising budget. Since again, if 100,000 other businesses want the same "first page of a search engine" for the same Keyword, how would you manage that in such a crowd? Of course you can not.

The more accurate question is:
1- Why does Advertising cost so much? After all, have you checked out the cost of Advertising on a major National or International Media outlet? They easily cost $25,000 and much more per Ad.
2- Why does Google Advertising cost so much and it is so hard to track?
3- What is a Small business with $1000 per Month Advertising budget and less to do then?

A friend of mine swears by Google Ads, I personally try to find as many ways to advertise on-line for free. Google MyBusiness is a good place to start, you add your details and you will receive a card from Google sent to your home or business address which has a few numbers on it, you use these to activate your free listing. There are so many places on-line where you can advertise for free and here are just a few of them. Scoot, 192, Yell, Bing, Yelp, freeindex, gumtree, The Independent, The Sun, Cyclex, ThomsonLocal, TouchLocal, UK Places, Foursquare, Opendi and many more. Try searching for "free advertising directories" when you have tried the ones I have listed here. It does not cost anything, only the time it takes to add your business details.

Many friends of mine and myself included, find Google Ads to be the most expensive rip-off there is. You pay $1000s of Dollars per Month, you have no real idea what value you got for all that Money, and when you call for support you get someone in India whose accent you canot understand. All for free Advertising, none of sites you listed such as Bing, Yelp, etc. are free Advertising! For to be listed on Bing is same as being listed on Google, which means Good luck anyone finding you.

You think online Advertising is expensive. Try print Advertising.
We bought 3 Full page Ads in Wired Magazine, they came to total of $64,000.
That is not $640 or $6400 but $64,000 - and for all this Money we got just about Zero calls fro new sales!

OTOH, we have spend like $100 in online Advertising on Anoox, per Month, and we got real sales from it. Far more than $100 per Month we pay for Adv here.

Moron, that is how much Advertising costs on Big Wall Street Media outlets.
Whether my nick-name is ThinkDeep, or whatever else, the fact remains that Advertising on Big Wall Street Media costs $100s of 1000s of Dollars for a basic campaign to run and many Millions of Dollars for anything beyond basic. And since an Ad on Wired, Forbes, Fortune, Inc. or TV etc. cannot be tracked as to the accuracy of these Ads, then it is all a Crap Shoot only affordable to other Big Wall Street firns.

That is why 99% of Advertising on Wired, Forbes, Fortune, Inc. or TV etc. are by other VC Wall Street funded companies and barely even 1% by Small businesses. That is why this Anoox non-profit social search network dedicated to delivering low cost Advertising to us small businesses, so very much God Sent. That was/is my point.

So the fact is that:

And your answer to this dismal facts, is that:
"If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen"

Dang, did you just tell me that I was trolling in the world of dolts? Since you seem to be equating Anoox to a world of dolts you want me to leave Anoox because Anoox so that I am NOT trolling in a world of dolts? And if Anoox, by your own inference, is a world of dolts, WHY are you here UNLESS you are one of them?

MM, you need to take some Chill pills man. All I said are the facts that online Advertising is essential to increasing ones Site traffic and sales and that as far I can see there is not better and lower cost options for online Advertising, than this Anoox because they are non-profit and it is a search engine & social network. If you know another non-profit search engine & social network, please let me know since we are all interested in other such low cost Adv options.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Likewise, if you can't compete with the big guys, don't blow your wad trying.

Any serious Site operated for purpose of selling Advertises. So you need to ask yourself what sort of sales you want to achieve via your Site and then budget your Advertising spending according to your sales goals. And for most effective Advertising results make sure you have Killer Ads, Killer landing page and Killer Site. Of course ultimate results of your Advertising success depends on products/services that you are offering. I mean if you are offering products/services that are crappy, no one wants or over priced, then no amount of Advertising is going to make much diff. But if you are offering products/services that feel a real need, via a cool web Site then Advertising will yield solid results. Good luck.

Great answer. Love how simply and fully gets to the real core of the answer. That Advertising success goes hand to hand with other issues which we as small businesses need to be smart about.

Im not sure if you can share URLs here but can you suggest the best places that i could buy business listings and adverts that would be effective. There are lot of sites offering backlinks, text ads, banner ads and submissions but most of them seem to be spammy subscription websites. Not sure who to trust.

Thanks for the help

Whitby, Well the answer to that question is OBVIOUS enough and staring you in the face mate :) That is for most effective and low cost Advertising to increase your Site traffic you can not do better than here Anoox social search network since it is the only non-profit such network mate. On that note, what I am amazed is that so many People still do not know about this anoox! which is because Big Media does not cover it since it cuts the cost of Advert by so much.

Lux_Report, yes it is amazing how so many People are here on Anoox, but do not appreciate the fact that anoox is the ONLY non-profit Social search network in the World, repeat "it is the ONLY non-profit Social search network in the World," this means it is the only chance or choice for small businesses to get good low cost Advertising. But somehow so many People are so stupid or so brain washed by the Big Wall Street media that they do not grasp this fact!

Lux, a serious site wanting to sell item MAY need to spend money on advertising, but not always. I make my living selling things via the internet, yet I spend NOTHING for advertising. Yes, that is rare, but in my case spending money targeting people that will never buy is a waste of resources. Better to keep improving my internet presence.

I dont know how much your Site is selling. But if it is a real sales amount, if it is a real business, then it cannot and will not exist as a real business without effective Advertising. Now is this "always" the case, maybe not, maybe a business can win the lottery, but for 99.99% of businesses that do not win lotteries, that need a real plan to increase their traffic and sales, then for that purpose Advertising is a key element - of course.

My website has paid ALL of my bills for the last TEN YEARS, put food on my table, and paid for vacations of 2 to 5 weeks every year. And all without spending a single solitary cent for advertising. Now I realize that is not possible for most businesses, but for mine it works, and has worked for YEARS.

If you got a Resultant on a high foot traffic place, you really dont need online Advertising. But the more of your business is online, the more Advertising you gonna need to survive and thrive. With that said, if you have Multi Million Dollar Advertising budget, then Google, Facebook, etc. Wall Street based Big firms are good for Advertising. OTOH, if you have a Small business budget, you cannot get better more effective Advertising than Anoox cause they are non-profit and are run for purpose of giving low cost Advertising to small businesses. If you dont know how they do this, check out:

its a real eye opener.

I have NO idea "How many people pay for online Advertising", but I can tell you that without online Advertising your business efforts will be highly, if not completely, retarded. And IMHO, on that note, you will be hard pressed to find more effective and lower cost Advertising than here Anoox since it is only non-profit Search Engine & Social Network. Good day mate.

If you have a real Site then you want to spend about 5 to 10% of your Sales on Advertising, to have any chance for real business. Otherwise you have a Joke of a Site and dont ever expect to get serious traffic. With that said, question is what is your Advertising budget, aka 5 to 10% of your Sales?

I think spending 10% of Sales on Advertising maybe too high. I would say the 5% amount is more appropriate.

I think you can easily spend 15% of your Sales on Advertising and thrive because of it. It all depends on what is your Margins.

Well of course it depends on what you are selling. But on average I would say that 7% of your sales should go for online Advertising. But of course in some businesses, that could easily be as high as 30%. I know businesses that Advertise on Google easily pay 30 to even 50% of sales to keep their Ads visible on Google. Well this is great for Google and why Google has so many Billionaires, but not for businesses, specially small businesses.

This question is way too generic.
But if I were to hazard a guess I would say 1 to 2% of People (Businesses) here Advertise here. And I think same percentage applies to Big for profit Wall Street based Sites such as Google, etc.
As far as does Advertising work, it is like saying does going out to a Night club works to meet new People, does working out works to lose weight, etc.. Answer is of course Yes, but you need to do more, such as when it comes to Advertising make sure to have good Ads, good landing Page, good Site, etc.
And as far as "what is the most effective online advertising method"? Ad Banners. Cool ones.
