“If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business.” – Bill Gates

Nothing could be truer this day in age. Let’s face it, if you have not embraced the internet as a way to compete for market share, promote your brand and drive revenue, you risk falling behind, or out of sight of your customers, forever.

Pew Internet reports that Internet usage is up 25% over the previous year and continues to grow.

You and I are Shopping, Banking, Conducting Research and Communicating Socially on the Internet More Than Ever
So Are Your Customers!

In addition to traditional, offline marketing efforts, the Integrated Marketing Plan must include “Virtual Marketing” , including all things “internet” such as…search engine optimization to achieve top search rankings on Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. to social media marketing using Twitter and Facebook to reach customers where they are.

Amazingly, some companies still view the internet as a fad or frivilous platform that drains time and attention from day-to-day duties of management, employees and staff. Yet, few can dispute the success stories like Dell Computers generating $3 million dollars in sales from Twitter alone.

I’ve seen a great evolution in the corporate mindset about SEO, PPC advertising, Email marketing and Social Media marketing, yet few seem to understand that the integration of all platforms will serve them best, as these platforms become even more connected online.

What do you perceive to be the greatest challeng in melding all virtual marketing methods for an integrated marketing strategy in 2010?
