Internet has become an indispensable component of our life. We turn to the internet for knowledge, entertainment, and communication. We can do everything with the internet. Though there are advantages and disadvantages, like everything else, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

Hence to ensure that no one is missed they have specific marketing plans including email marketing, to catch you when you check your mail; search engine marketing, to get you when you search for required information; and social media marketing, to reach you when you reach your friends.

What is affiliate marketing?

Every company knows that the new mantra of marketing is not marketing in style but marketing internet style. This is a one-step remedy to many problems, including reaching target population. Though you can reach a lot of people by having your own website, you can reach a lot more people by having your name on other websites too. You may have to pay the other website a small amount. This is affiliate marketing.

What are the problems that India faces in this sector?

India is a country that is still struggling to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate. So computer literacy is still a distant dream. Though reaching the whole population of India through the internet is not possible, you can reach the urban population. There is a stark contrast, in the levels of computer knowledge, in the cities and the villages. In the villages you can find many teenagers who do not know how to operate a computer. In the cities you will find that even pre-schoolers are experts at using computers. So in India, you have to concentrate on making the internet popular. This means that before we can market products through the internet, we have to be marketing Internet itself. Only if everybody is aware of the existence of internet can we use it as a mode of marketing.

Many policies and schemes are being brought out by the government which help to make the computer more popular. This also helps in marketing internet along with the computer system. Many learning centres have been set up in remote villages to help the youth become computer literates. These centres teach the students the basic computer skills. This helps them to search for better employment too. The recent moves, to popularise the internet, involves making government applications and forms available online. This makes people want to learn how to use the computer and how to access the internet. Thus the government has played a huge role in marketing internet and making it popular among the general public.
