There has been an explosion of WordPress websites for business in the last 18 months. Almost everywhere you look, companies large and small, plus individuals, are using WordPress software to create their websites. Why? Because compared to traditional websites, WordPress is cheap and easy to make. That doesn’t mean that just anyone can build them. On a basic level, most beginners can create something simple. But ad in a custom header, special widgets, plug-ins, opt-in forms and simple HTML code and you’ll have a mess on your hands if you don’t know what you’re doing.

That’s where the training in WordPress creation and management comes in. At IMTC, we teach you the advanced techniques for quickly and easily building a WordPress site for either yourself or a business. This is a high ‘in demand’ service because of the explosive popularity of WordPress. There are more businesses who need help in managing their sites than there are people who know how to do it. This is a BIG opportunity for you to make money with your knowledge.

And it doesn’t stop there. Your customers will still need consultations in keyword placement, image management and much more. At IMTC, you’ll learn all of that too. This really is the career of the future. The work will only grow in its demand, and armed with the knowledge from IMTC, you have all you need to take this new career by the horns. Check out all of the classes we offer and download our career brochure too. See you over there!

You hear thousands of commercials and get inundated daily with email ads about starting your own online business. Yes. There is a lot of money available to make online. It is the new frontier of business and advertising, especially geared towards people just starting out in their own business or work from home venture. The reason is the affordability. Compared to opening your own physical retail store, the investment of which is far out of the reach of average people, the Internet provides a low-cost alternative to any traditional business venture.

That’s not where most Internet businesses fail, however. The problem is with people buying into work at home programs without the proper training in running an online business.  Regardless of what some work at home program touts, it takes a degree of skill to effectively sell products and services to others online. If you have purchased work at home programs before and have been disappointed with the results, there were probably fundamental skills missing that would have helped you succeed.

These are the skills that the Internet Marketing Training Center teaches:

* Using videos to brand your business

* Using social networking to inexpensively reach millions of your potential customers

* Writing effective web copy to motivate viewers to buy

* Using an e-commerce system to seamlessly deliver your products

* Interactive marketing using autoresponders, blogs, forums and newsletters

Very few, if any, work at home programs teach you fundamental marketing skills. That’s why so many people fail. If you are really serious about starting (and succeeding) in an online business or just want to get a job working for someone else, IMTC has the skills you need. Come check out our site and see what we mean.

Yes. It’s been a tough last few years on the economy and in the job market. Many conventional careers took a major hit as companies try and find a bottom line that they can use to survive. Middle management, an important resource over the last two decades, became a cost -heavy burden on most businesses and many people lost their jobs. Businesses have turned to more cost-effective ways to advertise and broaden their global reach. For most, the Internet provided the key marketing and advertising strategies they were looking for to stay afloat.

Of course, resources ran low when the demand for skilled Internet workers ran high. There was a shortage of people that knew the fast-paced and ever-changing Internet world.

Jobs in Internet marketing are recession proof. Why? Because during tough times the Internet offered the solutions for many cost-cutting measures. Employees could work from home, saving a ton of money for companies on things such as office space, utilities and equipment. The return on investment for advertising on the web is greater than that of conventional PR: television and print media.

Internet marketing is an integral part of almost every company, large or small, and it’s here to stay. The job market for skilled Internet marketers, bloggers, video media and writing for the web is constantly growing. How can you tap in to this rewarding and expanding market?

Video marketing continues as the go-to technique for businesses large and small who want to make a quick and effective impact on their sales. In fact, a recent University of California study discovered:

– A small business can instantly increase their credibility over 50% in their customers and clients eyes by placing a video on their website.
– A video can give a small business a decisive marketing edge over their competition if their competitors have no videos.
– The marketing message can be communicated and visualized more easily from a video than from the written word.
– A client is more prone to believe video messages over a written one.

That’s because video will give people more opportunities to analyze body language, voice inflection and other physical factors the written word can never convey and as a result proves more convincing and credible. All these facts are not that surprising, why? Because a whole new generation has been raised with online videos. We now have a generation who not only accept video messages, but expect and even demand them. That’s why a business who ignores video marketing will be in danger of playing catch up with their competitors.

Many small, unknown companies have literally leap-frogged over larger, more established competitors because of the power of video marketing. In fact, this may be one of the last frontiers for the little guy to level the playing field with larger competitors. Stories continue to abound of tiny no-name businesses who catapult to fame and fortune because of a well placed marketing video. The good news is, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Video marketing is still in its infancy, that’s why those who can effectively use video messages will reap the largest rewards in the future.

Video marketing is a part of the formula companies who have the competitive edge enjoy now. That’s the quiet secret most companies who effectively use video marketing hope their competitors never find out. Get with the program! Choose Video Marketing for a great career!

Let’s look at an analogy that might help you understand what HTML coding is. Have you ever been to the theatre? What you see on stage is the actors, the furniture, the scenery, etc.

Behind the stage is all the rigging that makes the play work.What you see on stage is analogous to your webpage. What you see behind the stage is analogous to the HTML code. Your browser (most likely Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox) interprets all the crazy looking HTML code from “back stage” and makes it look like a webpage.

So, now that you know what HTML is, let’s look back stage and see how META Tags apply to your site.META Tags are being used less and less, and you certainly shouldn’t depend on them to get high rankings, but you still should have them because they help you control what the search engines results list says about your site when someone does a search for your topic.

If you want to see some samples of META Tags, open a browser (Internet Explorer) and click on “view.” Then click on “source”. A new window will pop up and you can look at all the behind-the-scenes HTML programming of just about any webpage.

Here’s an example of what the META Tags look like:
Sample META Tags

Note: The <TITLE> Tag should be the first thing after the <HEAD> Area of the page and then comes the “description” META Tag and then the “keyword” META Tag.

<TITLE>Customer service training</TITLE>
<META name=“description” content=“Customized customer service training at your location by the person that “wrote the book” on customer retention”>
<META name=“keywords” content=“customer service speaker, training, trainer, client retention”>

Making web pages is pretty easy to do now and you generally don’t have to know much about HTML. However, you do have to go a little bit behind the scenes to learn about META Tags, But you don’t have to go too far because the new web authoring programs help you make the Meta Tags. Also, WordPress has plugins that make META Tags for you.

Hi! My name is Colin and I’m one of the instructors here at the Internet Marketing Training Center. Not only do I have the experience of having worked for Tom Antion, the founder, for over four years now, but I also took my own distance education course back in 2005 for a degree in Gemology. Without a choice to take a distance education course, I would never have been able to attend.

The school I attended online is in California. I live in Virginia and didn’t have the opportunity to leave my job and live out west while I took that course for 18 months. I was also a single dad. Distance education gave me the opportunity to get an education that I really desired. When I saw that they had an online education available I signed up on the spot. I knew it was the answer I was looking for.

How about you?Could learning online change your decision about a starting a new career? I took the tests online, completed my assignments online and had easy access to my instructor. It couldn’t have been any more convenient. That’s why I believe in the success of this school, IMTC and how it can open up opportunities for people just like you (and me!) to attend the school they want to. Dreams really can come true, even if you live far away and maybe a single parent just like I was. When you’re ready to find out more, we’re here for you.
