Advertise 'on da net' through La Onda Network.
using the Tejano Ads web page.
The Internet got very popular almost overnight.
It has been around for a long time but it was mainly for Engineers,
Scientists, Educators, etc. But with the annoucement of the Clinton's
Administration support of the Information Super Highway,
there have been great interest in the Internet. Most
of the major 500 Fortune companies already have their own Web
site for Advertisement, Sales, Customer support, etc. Magazines
companies, TV & Radio stations, individuals, everyone is getting
on the Internet. The reason is simply that anyone
with access to the Internet can visit their sites and see what
they have created or have to offer. There are thousands of people
browsing the Internet at all hours of the day and
night. Alot of these people are eager for Tejano/Mexican information
of any kind. Music, videos, books, magazine, etc. I have been
asked for Selena and other Tejano artists magazines, T-Shirts,
books, etc alot of times on my Tejano Music Home Page.
The Internet is like a Billboard, or a TV cable channel with your very own ad running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but for a fraction of the cost!Prodigy, CompuServe, American Online all have Internet access. These three companies alone put tens of thousands of people on the Internet. These people are just looking around for anything that looks interesting. Especially those that don't live around any large metropoliton area that offers their kind of music, magazines, food, etc. This is probably a large portion of the USA.
Normally in order for you to advertise on the Internet, you will have to get an Internet Service Provider and then learn or hire someone to write Web pages for you. Someone will also have to maintain your site, scan pictures of your products, write FORMS to accept your customer's orders, etc.
This is where I come in. I'm already subscribing to an Internet Service Provider. You don't have to worry about disk space, how to FTP your programs, images, etc over to the internet site. No need to check for orders or information, etc. from customers. You don't have to worry about learning to write IMAGEMAP, FORMS, scripts, etc. I have a quality scanner to get images of your product. I have over a year of experience of writing Web pages. I have been on the Internet for over 5 years and know how to get around. I read Usenet Newsgroups and keep up with the latest and greatest on the Internet World. I have been programming on the computer for around 20 years. So, this is nothing new to me.
Another problem with advertising on the Internet is just how are people going to know that your company exist on the web in the first place. Again, I have taken care of that. Since the middle of March 1995, my Tejano Music Home Page went online. Because of my large pictures collection and Tejano information, my Tejano Music Home Page has become very popular.
The following recording companies are supplying the Tejano Music Home Page with promotional promotional materials on their recording artists:
Your advertisement will be seen by hundreds of people every day. My Tejano Music Home Page is also listed on other very popular web pages all over the country, including popular databases such as Yahoo, AltaVisa, NCSA, DFW Yellow Pages, Who's Who, etc. The Tejano Music Home Page has been averaging over 1.5 million hits per month (60,000 per day)! With an average of over 16,000 accesses per day!
