If you are talking about online marketing, then there are some sites where you can learn about your competition. Try It used to be free, but now you have to pay to use it. It lets you look at the keywords, bids and other information about other companies online advertising. It’s pretty cool.

As for strategies that work, here are a few to get you started:
1. Capitalize The First Letter Of Each Word – people are more likely to click
2. Never say “Save 30%”. No one cares. Give an exact number, like “Only $ 199”.
3. You can’t say Best, but you can say “unbeatable”.
4. Always run a few ads and decide which one brings in the most sales
5. Use analytics. You can get a great analytics program for free from google. Try to sign up
6. Join an affiliate program. There is usually a sign up fee, look at “commission junction” for example, but after that fee, you only pay a commission on sales, so you only pay if you are making money. It’s a win win 🙂
7. Lastly, Google, Yahoo and MSN all offer tools for you to find keywords… Use them, but with a grain of salt. Those tools are not designed to give you conversions, they’re designed to make money for Google, Yahoo and MSN.

We’re Not Buying It: Stop junk food marketing to kids

Protect our kids: Sign the petition Experts agree that junk food is a huge contributor to skyrocketing rates of diabetes, high blood pressure, and even strokes among adults–and increasingly, among children. And food and beverage companies spend billions of dollars promoting unhealthy foods virtually everywhere kids go. The Interagency Working Group on Foods Marketed to Children (IWG) has proposed reasonable nutrition guidelines to help provide a model for companies that market to kids. Unfortunately, the food industry and media companies are working to get Congress to stop the IWG from finalizing these sensible recommendations. “We’re Not Buying It,” exposes deceptive marketing to children, debunks industry claims, and highlights the latest research. When we put children first, the plan of action is clear: companies should market the foods that keep kids healthy, not sugary cereals and other junk food. The IWG guidelines will help to do just that. Get involved at Music by Moby. Directed by Anthony Lappe.
