  1. While it’s true that internet marketing is in fact a great medium to test in, that’s also the downside of it – there are so many things you can test and tweak, that you can end up wasting just as much money and a lot more time on it than traditional media. If you’re currently running a business, mastering Internet Marketing is a tough challenge – rather get in an expert that accepts responsibility for the results you get from his advice.

  2. Good point Perry. I guess the key thing is to know as much as you can about the marketing mediums that you can before you invest in any one tool or an expert to do things for you.
