More About the Author

Ralph F. Wilson was raised in a Christian family and received Christ as his Savior and Lord at the age of nine. When he was twelve, he became aware that God was calling him to the Christian ministry.

He studied at Occidental College, Los Angeles where he received a bachelor's degree in Biology in 1967. He received a Master of Divinity degree (1976) from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, and a few years later, a Doctor of Ministry degree (1984) from the same school

Pastor Ralph has attended churches of many denominations as well as independent churches. He believes that denominations at their best can strengthen the Body by providing historical fellowships of congregations. Yet he rejoices that the walls that have divided one group from another are coming down. Our goal - and final destiny - is One Church unified by Jesus Christ himself.

Pastor Ralph was ordained under the auspices of the American Baptist Churches/USA in 1977. He has served as senior pastor of Lindley Ave. Baptist Church in Tarzana, California (1976-1988) and Church of the Live Oaks in Rocklin, California (1988-2001). He served as Ministry Development Pastor at Community Covenant Church in Rocklin 2003-2009. Currently he is serving as Interim Pastor at First Baptist Church of Nevada City (2010- )

Dr. Wilson is recognized as a pioneer in the field of Internet marketing and is editor of Web Marketing Today (www.wilsonweb.com), a free e-mail newsletter that reaches nearly 100,000 readers each week. Over 150 of his video interviews of marketing experts are available on the WebMarketingToday channel on YouTube.

His Joyful Heart Renewal Ministries website (www.joyfulheart.com) contains scores of Christian articles and stories he has written.

Beginning in 1996, he began to experiment with teaching the Bible by means of the Internet, the JesusWalk Bible Study Series (www.jesuswalk.com). His studies have reached as many as 5,500 in up to 124 countries at a time. These interactive Bible studies allow students to begin at any time, receive lessons via e-mail, and share their insights to study questions with others in an online forum.

Dr. Wilson has served as a trainer for a number of Christian organizations, including Compassion International, Campus Crusade for Christ International, NavPress, Gospel Communications, Zondervan Publishing House, and others.

Pastor Ralph and his wife have three grown children. They live in rural Loomis, California, a few miles from Sacramento.

If you want good advice on how to market your website this book is it. No flim flam here! Dr Wilson's book is just what you're looking for. He cuts through the geek talk and practically holds your hand as you learn what to do and what not to do. I am 100% convinced 2002 will be a super year due to what I've learned from Dr Wilson. I am also a paid subscriber to his newsletter for one reason...he gives me info I can't get anywhere else. If he doubled the price of his newsletter I wouldn't blink before I gave the OK to renew my subscription.

Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is more than just about about Internet Marketing--it's about personal marketing. Within an hour of buying it, I bought a second copy to give to a friend who had recently lost his job as an engineer and wanted some advice on marketing himself.

Several things make Planning Your Internet Marketing Stratgegy unique. First, in contrast to so many books, it lives up to its premise. The first 21 chapters explore various aspects of creating an internet strategy. Each chapter ends with questions and things for you to think about and answer on paper. These chapters provide the meat and potatoes for you to pull together in the formal, written Internet Marketing Plan that you create in Chapter 22.

Second, Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is as much a resource guide as it is a friendly, extremely well-written guide. Each chapter contains numerous web site resources for you to explore as you read the book. This is one book you won't want to read in bed, (unless you have a laptop) because you'll be constantly tempted to check out a recommended web site.

The field of Internet Marketing has spawned a slew of self-styled experts. Dr. Ralph F. Wilson is not a self-proclaimed expert new to the web. He has been involved since its inception. His knowledge is based on now only his own experiences but also the accumulated knowledge of the more than 9,000 articles that he has compiled are in his (website) database.

What I like best about Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is the way Dr. Wilson has synthesized great amounts of "classical" marketing theory with the vast amount of Internet-specific information he's learned while compiling his 9,000 article database. No other author can make such a claim.

Ralph Wilson could be fairly called an "international treasure". His web site and writings have guided many internet marketers to success and prosperity. He is widely consider to be one of the true "good guys" on the net. He has earned that respect.

This book, however, is best called a "newbie" book. Good basic information, but not something that is going to excite or benefit the person who is already beyond the basics.

If, however, you are just starting to dip your toes into the wild ride called "internet marketing", then this book will get you off to a good start.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Ralph Wilson does a magnificant job of taking volumes of articles, resources, and customer feedback from his own ecommerce operation, and distilling it down to a very enjoyable book. Wilson teaches the reader how to exploit all the resources of the Internet, while never forgetting sound
business practices. And unlike other business books, Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is strengthened by Wilson's own online empire which serves as a constant reference tool for the reader, offering numerous examples of a successful ecommerce operation.

In the Internet's vast sea of hype, thank heaven we have Dr Ralph Wilson. Planning Your Internet Marketing Strategy is best described as a reality wake-up call. Low on hype and high on facts, this practical guide walks you through the Internet marketing process keeping your feet firmly on the ground. Good, honest advice at a price anyone can afford, from a guy who really does practice what he preaches. ...

Format: Paperback
For beginners on marketing and advertising info. On the other hand seems like the book is geared toward someone opening up a major site with many products. Not the best book I've read on the topic, not the worst. My only complaint is the author goes overboard mentioning his website in every single chapter many times, plus his religious links. Please spare us.

The book does a good intro on the topic. But as the other reviewer says, it's short on delivery and action plan. To me, this book would be good for someone who does not have much experience with the Web. If you know what ROI and CPM mean, then skip this book and pick up one that has more techniques in it.
