The Internet Marketing Plan (Second Edition)

Marketers and advertisers, the world over, are being confronted with a new medium and new communities, and they need to develop new techniques if they are to keep doing business in the Internet age.

Covering everything from getting your site listed on search engines to setting up a corporate e-mail signature block template, the author addresses almost all imaginable aspects of gaining and maintaining an Internet presence. The book teems with examples of how companies are using all components of the Internet to promote business opportunities, not just familiar Web sites. Perhaps even more importantly, it covers things the aspiring Net marketer should not do, such as spamming, although there could be a bit more detail in this section.

A good feature of this book is its relentlessly practical approach. Bayne approaches each section with the attitude that its primary purpose is to fulfil a coordinated marketing plan that has as its goal to establish an in-depth Internet presence, not just putting up a Web page and hoping it will be enough. There are forms to help you analyse different aspects of your plan in a methodical manner, and frequent suggestions for activities you can perform right now - itself a clever tactic for retaining the reader's interest in a wired world where instant gratification is the watchword.

For marketers and advertisers seeking to upgrade from the old world of paper and mass media to the new universe of bandwidth and interaction, this text is an excellent starting point.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
