5 Star Control acknowledged the place marketing trends have in business marketing strategies, but cautioned businesses to perform regular reviews of their marketing techniques, including the removal of any strategies that are not working or are not cost-effective. In order to analyze one’s marketing efforts effectively, 5 Star Control revealed that business owners need to track what local internet marketing strategy brought their paying customers to them. This caution came on the heels of the January 19th article from Business 2 Community, “What Are Different Types of Internet Marketing Strategies.” The article revealed different types and strategies for using online marketing.
Jeff Shjarback’s January 19th article listed 3 types of internet marketing, including SEO marketing, email advertising, and marketing via Google AdSense. Each type of marketing involves different time and effort requirements, and each type caters to a different market or audience.
5 Star Control cautioned businesses to regularly update and check all local internet marketing strategies. Regular maintenance and evaluation of these strategies is necessary, as it allows companies to remove any and all marketing techniques that do not yield consistent results. Because marketing maintenance requires time and effort, constantly pouring effort into an ineffective marketing platform will result in wasted time and, ultimately, wasted money. Routine maintenance and trimming of marketing is a necessary aspect of business advertising. The editor of 5 Star Control warned, “You better be tracking where and how your customers found you. If you don’t, how the heck are you going to be able to know what marketing platform you should be putting more time and financial resources into? If a customer calls you, ask how they found you. Did they find you using Google or Bing or Yelp? If so, figure out what keyword they entered in. Did they click on your paid ad or your organic listing? Did they hear about you from a friend? Who is that friend and how did they find you? We here at 5StarControl cannot stress enough how important it is to track where your customers are coming from. Trust us. And if you need help, you can learn more about local internet marketing on our site.”

5StarControl urged business owners to perform maintenance as part of an Internet marketing strategy. Because not all forms of local internet marketing work for all markets and products, businesses should undertake various marketing strategies using a variety of platforms, and perform both maintenance and cutbacks over time. If a marketing platform fails to work out, or fails to generate a significant following, companies should not pour more time and effort into that platform. A pivotal component to marketing is the recognition that some strategies will not work for all companies—and the prompt abandonment of those strategies.
