There is the use of banners,email marketing,and affiliate marketing.Banners advertising and email marketing were the first form of advertising and it is still amazing that even today they are still very effective. This is not to say the mode has not undergone some changes(present banners cannot be compared to previous banners).Banner advertising usually works on the basis of how many impressions have been server up by the page. It is for certain that the more banner ads put up the better the results and vice versa. The con to the use of banners is the leads generated from banners were difficult to track down, this led to intrusive and other rich media advertising concepts to be introduced.

Affiliate marketing has also peaked in the online marketing industry.Normal people even though they have no experience in marketing can now get commissions through recruiting. Traditionally it was advertising by word of mouth now it is affiliate marketing. These affiliates get rewards inform of cash,coupons,gifts. The more referrals(recruits) one acquires the bigger the commisions.

This is due to the fact that by just logging in the marketers can view the reception of the advertisements put forward and if unsatisfied they can change their marketing method. Marketers get comments and suggestions on how to improve the products,physical buying customers tend to be too busy or in a hurry to give feedback as compared to online shoppers who are transacting from the comfort of their homes.Products can be uploaded and their specifications defined and in case of adjustments a simple upload or deletion is required.For customers, online shopping has been a convenient preference as all they require is a credit card and their goods will be delivered to their doorsteps.
