Help On The Way For DIY Internet MarketersMarch 9, 2009
Written by Meredith Oliver
Are you one of those DIY (do-it-yourself) Marketers who always wanted to have a hip blog, a kick-butt eNewsletter or rockin’ Web site but lacked the knowledge, confidence or budget to make it happen? As a small business owner myself, I understand (maybe better than anyone) the dilemma you face. You don’t have enough budget to outsource your marketing but you still need professional and effective eMarketing tools to grow your business. Further, you lack the time or maybe talent to learn eMarketing on your own.
Just like you I wasn’t born with Internet Marketing prowess! Almost 10 years ago, I enrolled in the Masters in Corporate Communications & Technology graduate program at Rollins College. On my first day I was issued a notebook computer. The professor asked us to retrieve a document from the “hard drive.” I panicked and froze as I realized that I didn’t know how to find the hard drive. My work experience was limited to large organizations with main frame computer systems and I had very limited knowledge how to operate a PC. So that you understand the irony here, please realize I signed up Masters Degree program in Internet technology and couldn’t operate a laptop! That night my husband put a sticky note on my monitor that said “C = Hard Drive” and that saved the day. My whole life I have plunged into new territories without a full understanding of what I was getting into. It’s what I do.
The good news is that the Masters Degree program turned on my passion for eMarketing! I became so excited about it’s power and promise that I studied Internet Marketing night and day. I founded Meredith Communications and for nearly seven years we have focused on helping medium and large businesses harness the power of the Web to drive sales and revenue.
