It’s Tuesday evening once again and the Duchess of Earle finds herself a bit late as she logs into Steve Renner‘s iNetGlobal webcast, the last Tuesday evening presentation before the official launch of iNetGlobal this coming Saturday. All systems are go for the big celebration and flurry of activity that will accompany this event, which will last all through the month of March. Special promotions and offers will abound – in fact, some are going on already.
As the Duchess arrives in the webcast room, Mr. Renner is announcing the new name for the permission-based advertising service, formerly referred to as AdPacs, but now called iNetSurf. This is the very affordable advertising service for those that wish to place their ads on a rotator and have others view their ads for a minimum of 20 seconds each. The ads have keywords – and can have zipcodes – attached to them, so that topics can be searched for by those surfing the ads. This has proven a successful means of advertising for many businesses, and it’s so affordable because the business can also earn rebates on the advertising dollars it has spent. Business owners can also recommend this service to other business owners and earn commissions on the purchases of those businesses as well. So there are a couple of ways to earn money utilizing the benefits of iNetSurf – in additional to purely marketing one’s products and/or services there.
Next, he launches into the discussion of search engines. He shares a chart that shows how Google and Yahoo have grown in the last number of years. In about 2005, the two were running neck-and-neck in the marketplace. But then, in 2006, Google introduced AdWords – and that really allowed Google to take a leap ahead of Yahoo. And Google’s lead has increased in the following years, so the advertising piece has been absolutely huge for Google and its growth.
Our Mr. Renner has been observing all this activity and it caused him to decide to enter the advertising fray with his own AdPacs ad system and his own search engine, called acesse.com. (Just so you know, friends, he pronouces it “access.”) He put his own team of spiders online starting late last summer, working to index the internet’s content. He – and those like the Duchess that either were already involved or those that got involved early on – have watched the search results grow over these last months. It’s really been an exciting thing to see happen. Steve started using the keyword ‘travel’ as his yardstick. He got about fifteen results the first time he searched it – way last fall. Today, it yields (the Duchess just did the search, so this number is hot off the presses) 1,560,549 results. Does this compare with Google’s search for the same word at 1,090,000,000? Not yet – but it certainly will! His spiders are busy indexing about a million pages per day, he says – so eventually he’s going to get caught up and then expects that acesse.com will be the fourth largest search engine. Even Google’s spiders have begun visiting Acesse’s site more often. The Duchess recalls a meeting with Mr. Renner a couple of months ago wherein he mentioned that the Google spiders had come back for a second visit to Acesse that day; he said it was the first time they had done so more than once a day – so that was really exciting for him and his crew to observe as a benchmark moment in the search engine’s growth.
So what’s the big deal about Acesse search engine? It has advertising on it, friends – just like Google. And Mr. Renner’s services now include advertising – and the cost of advertising on acesse.com is a lot less than advertising on Google. One may pay a couple of bucks for a click on acesse.com that could cost them $50 on Google. The Duchess presumes that eventually the cost will rise – as always happens when demand increases, but for now the low costs are the truth and there are some big players that have begun to take notice. Ads from major companies are appearing both on the search engine and in the advertising rotator. That’s pretty exciting!
But wait! As seems always the case with Mr. Renner’s services – there’s more! He has another offering for business advertisers in his newest program, which he has dubbed V-Local. This is a program that he and his staff have been playing with for the past year or so under the name of Twin Cities Business Directory and have now decided to unveil to the general public. It offers businesses great online exposure – their ads can even have videos on them and a photo gallery of up to nine images. The advertising is geo-targeted and merchants are also able to put their coupons online. Right now, shoppers can search by category of vendor or location and find merchants in the US, Canada, UK, China – and a couple more that the Duchess missed getting down. More communities/nations will be coming in the weeks ahead. Advertising packages for V-Local are available at three levels – in additional to a free listing position. There are other systems out there doing this sort of listing, but many just post an ad for the business instead of getting the merchant’s page listed with the search engines. This is a pretty major difference and an extremely valuable one. It’s valuable for the merchant that wants to promote his/her business – and it’s valuable for the iNetGlobal internet marketer, because there are so many ways that one can make money offering this – and all of iNetGlobal’s suite of products.
Please write the Duchess at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like your questions answered about any of these services or if you’re interested in signing up for membership in iNetGlobal.
The Duchess would also like to remind you that Saturday morning, Feb. 28th at 9:00 Central Standard Time is the official launch for iNetGlobal. We’ll be having a meeting that will kick off the month of March and really get iNetGlobal rockin’ and rollin’. Please come join us! The link for the meeting is here. When you get there, scroll down the page for the box that mentions the online presentation – and note that the password is: imtrain . Come join us! See you on Saturday morning!
And – the Duchess almost forgot! It’s way off subject, but… Below is a little video that a friend of the Duchess, Lady Ruth T, sent earlier this week. It was so absolutely dear that the Duchess couldn’t resist sharing it with her readers. Oh, that we all could get along so well together, in spite of our differences! Enjoy!
Well, friends, the Duchess of Earle attempted earlier today to get on the V-Webcast of the AdPacs Rally in San Diego with Steve Renner, founder of iNetGlobal. Unfortunately, every time she tried to log in, she got the response that the webcast wasn’t available. So she finally gave up – until about an hour ago. Then – voila! There was the webcast! And internet marketing guru Steve Renner is sitting in front of his computer, holding forth on internet marketing strategies.
The content of this training is sooooo goooood that the Duchess is veeeery reluctant to leave for her scheduled dinner party this evening. She’s just send her Duke off to the grocer’s for the whipping cream for the dessert she’s bringing to the potluck dinner – just because she doesn’t want to leave her computer! What a state of affairs! But – she’s getting some really good understandings and a broader perspective on internet marketing from this session. Oh, rats! they’re taking a cookie break – and now the Duchess really does have to get her shoes on and leave. But let me tell you, dear readers, this guy has built – and continues to build – an internet marketing empire and he really knows what he’s doing when it comes to getting traffic directed to his sites!
Watch for the next Rallies and if they’re in your area, take a serious look at coming to hear what he’s got to say. If you’re in internet marketing – or want to be in internet marketing – it’s well worth your time to lend an ear to Mr. Renner!
And now the Duchess bids you a pleasant evening and runs out the door!
