Linking... going down deep
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - October 20, 2000

A key component of an online marketing campaign is getting links to your website. Just making your content more useful normally involves a few links to other websites for further information, but what is the legal situation of linking to other websites? Do you have to ask permission or just in certain contexts? Surely the web is all about linking, but do the lawyers agree?

Those leaving the world of full-time employment to work as a freelance often have the zeal of people who have recently kicked smoking. If the lifestyle suits, it can be a wonderful way to earn a crust, with flexibility and the option to chose what you want to do.

Do advertorials con the reader?
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - September 29, 2000

It's not only heated debate and intellectual wrangling that create sore heads for UKNM subscribers. This week the second Chinwag networking event took place, much beer was drunk, many crisps and sweets were eaten and plenty of soft toys were taken home. Trust me, you had to be there. In spite of this, it was a lively time on the mailing list.

Are banners a waste of time?
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - September 22, 2000

Managing customer relationships
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - September 15, 2000

The post Internet stock plunge world has left many companies with reduced marketing budgets and a sharper focus on their existing customers. Stacks of companies have appeared on the scene, specialising in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and 1-to-1 marketing. It can be a confusing area with a plethora of methodologies and more than a smattering of buzzwords. Unsurprisingly, it's a topic that crops up pretty frequently.

It's a viral thing, baby.
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - September 1, 2000

It's pretty safe to say that viruses are regarded as bad things, whether they're in the natural or virtual worlds. Using the same technique for marketing a website, à la Hotmail, however, can bring about spectacular results with a bit of effort and surprisingly little outlay. Used well it's powerful, used badly it's like the gift of a verruca.

Seek and thou shall find
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - August 18, 2000

Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam...
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - August 11, 2000

Monty Python would be proud. If there's one thing that gets blood boiling it's spam or direct email marketing or even unsolicited commercial email. To promote is divine, to spam is asking for trouble, but it's a fine line to tread. Aren't most marketers fed up with emails titled, "Buy 1 million emails for $50", deluging their own Inbox?

UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - July 21, 2000

Every so often a topic comes along that gets everyone chatting. Usually it tends to be some retail website hitting the rocks, or a really daft marketing campaign. This time however, it was an advert during Channel 4�s Emillionaire. It wasn�t the advert for per se, but some of the policies applied by those behind the site.

To be an Emillionaire
UK-Netmarketing Weekly Round-up - July 14, 2000

You might have though a show giving away £1m investment to a prospective Internet business might have caused some grumbling on UKNM. The launch of Channel 4's Emillionaire show was met with surprising ambivalence, perhaps everyone is too busy working or jaded from the plethora of new media TV shows on our screens.
