Reverse marketing sounds like something complicated, one of those inexplicable concepts of internet marketing that are vague, and difficult to grasp at times. Reverse marketing is one of the more controversial of the marketing techniques out there in the internet marketing world. While some marketers swear by it, others feel exactly the opposite, dubbing reverse marketing as nothing more than another failed marketing ploy.
In all actuality, reverse marketing is a hidden gem; if you don’t know how to carry it out effectively it may be rather difficult for you to benefit from it but if you play your cards right chances are that you will be able to reap more benefits from this marketing ploy than you ever thought possible.
At this point, you are probably wondering, ‘what exactly is reverse marketing?’ While it can seem complicated, it is rather simple. It is a marketing strategy that is based on the principle of the law of attraction. It has to do with having customers look for you, instead of you looking for the customers. It seems that a great deal of marketing has to do with seeking out customers to give you business, so imagine what it would be like if customers came to you instead. This is what reverse marketing is all about, and why it has the potential to be such a hot commodity.
The most common method of reverse marketing is probably something that you have seen a lot of. If you sell gardening supplies on your website and you have a website that sells all of the different types of supplies, gloves, gardening seeds and other things on that site you want customers to be able to find your site so that they can place orders for your items that fit their needs. An example of reverse marketing in this instance would be to have something else on there like a ‘free bonus’ of sorts, like an e-zine or an e-book all about how to grow the best garden from home. When customers are looking for gardening supplies on Google, they will find your site eventually (if they do the right searching). They will read your e-book or e-zine and come to you for business because you have provided them with such a useful ‘bonus’ incentive.
Reverse marketing is not about fluff; it is not about having something on there just to get the customers to your site. It is about providing them with a useful product or service so that they can have some respect for you and your business and may even (hopefully) look up to you as an expert in that field. That is the best way to attract a good, solid customer base of people who believe in you and what you have to offer without having to be convinced.
Unfortunately, reverse marketing has been written off by many internet marketers as something that has no worth or value these days. After the principle of the law of attraction first hit the internet waves, people were swearing by this principle but that has left reverse marketing as a hidden gem for people like yourself to be able to reap the benefits. Those who dispute the validity of reverse marketing will just have to find other ways of finding customers, while you sit back and watch your customers come to you.
