Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It

Foreword The business environment has changed since the severe downturn affected the entire globe. In September 2008 a financial crisis was declared when Lehman Brothers, one of Wall Street's big investment banks, declared bankruptcy (Weil et al.2009). American officials seized control of American International Group to prevent the giant insurer's collapse. As panic spread, governments engineered the rescue of distressed banks or took them over directly (Herszenhorn, 2008). By the end of the month, the remaining big Wall Street houses had either been absorbed by others or become bank holding companies (Williams –Walsh, 2009). America and Europe reacted to the unfolding crisis by unveiling broad bail-out packages for the financial system. Most central banks slashed interest rates. The global stock market gains of recent years were wiped out. Hopes that emerging markets would remain buoyant during a downturn in the West were dashed when markets plummeted in China, India, Russia and elsewhere (Economist, 2008). There is only one place where people can communicate globally and make business despite the downturn economy; yes you guessed it - The Internet. An online business can be run from your own home and can make profits at the same time. In order to run a successful business you have to put in place certain measurements that will be explained in this report. This report is aimed at those men and women who want to change and want to take control of their life by: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Spending more time with their family. Being their own boss. Getting away from the daily commuting to work. Leaving a demanding career or corporate life. Buddy entrepreneurs, moms, dads, pensioners that want extra money.

If this sounds familiar to you, you are in the right place to start gaining all the information you will need to start your future online business. Making money online can be the easiest thing you do but also the hardest thing. Choosing the right strategy and thinking long term is the key to making HUGE bucks’ online and becoming ultra successful.

1. Right Mindset What is in the way between you and making money? Your Mindset. I am not going to concentrate on this topic for too long because I‘m sure you are ready to grasp it very quickly. We all have heard how so many people have become successful in their internet business. Perhaps you have also tried getting into the online market yourself, but unfortunately you were not able to succeed, unlike the others. Starting a business online is just like starting a physical business, except that you will have to do all your transactions online and you are able to reach a global market. The same difficulties may also be experienced when starting an online business although you do not have to worry about putting up establishments or renting stalls. However, one thing is the same for all different types of businesses so that they can become successful – the right mindset. When you do your start-up with the right approach, then you will be able to get ahead in the race. Secret #1: Always begin with your final goal in mind. This is what you want to achieve. For example: I want financial freedom. Ask yourself some questions like: Why do I want financial freedom? Because I want luxury holidays, a big house etc. Make a vision board so you will have a constant reminder of what you are aiming for. Then you start setting small steps towards your goal. Secret #2: Visualize yourself achieving it. This is a very powerful technique that has been tried for centuries .You must believe in it otherwise you will sabotage your desires and they won‘t materialize. Secret #3: There are three things you need to keep in your mind to achieve your final goal:-

Taking Action You could read every Article online (if that were possible) and get super smart, but if you never apply what you‘ve learned then your knowledge is pretty much useless! A lot of people live by ―knowledge is power‖ and it should actually be ―applied knowledge is power‖. Every time I‘m writing new material I make sure to make that distinction. Nothing happens without taking action! Get hungry, fabricate some motivation that will help you to get out of the rut race and inspire you to make this online business a success. So what are some of the reasons that prevent you from taking action and making your dreams a reality? Fear – fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of success. No matter how you put it, fear is just silly. If you‘re not dying, doing anything illegal or endangering anyone around you, I don‘t see the need to fear ANYTHING, especially a little work!  Laziness – No, this is something I can‘t advise you on. You just have to get off your back side and get to work. One thing that I learned from my many years of personal development training is to make two types of lists : One list should be about pains in life that you want to avoid: for example, if you don‘t make enough money, your car may be repossessed. The other list should be about your pleasures/desires: something you want to move towards such as getting a brand new car and all the new attention you will receive from that. I‘m sure that should have enough motivatition to kill the procrastination and laziness.

Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It Staying Focused This is another BIGGIE, it‘s so easy to start a new project and then get an email from a big marketing guru and try to do what they do in their course. Most launches are designed to make the product owners‘ pockets fatter. Don‘t expect to find a new technique that will make you rich overnight. Most of the techniques they show you have been done for years and they are just sharing their experience. You need to create a vision of how you want each project you start to turn out. If you keep putting things off and trying to refocus your attention each week, you will never accomplish anything (it‘s a known fact). I suggest unsubscribing to all of the marketers‘ email lists or creating a filter in your email account to where they don‘t show in your inbox. This keeps your mind on one thing and therefore you attract what you focus on.

Being Persistent Yup! We all feel like giving up on things and in most cases that feeling comes our way too early. Once you‘re into ―Action Mode‖ and you‘re totally focused on the project at hand, you have to see everything you‘ve been visualizing to completion! To put persistence in one phrase would be:

2. Plan Your Business It is important that you have the right knowledge when it comes to doing an online business. You cannot just take on the offensive side without making the right plans. The lack of planning in any business will lead you to fail. The more precise and detailed your plan is, the greater chances of success: Such a plan should show: 1. Start-up investment needs. 2. Advertising plan. 3. Production costs and procedures. 4. Sales program. 5. How your time will be allocated. This type of strategy is like a living document that has to be monitored and updated constantly to increase the business growth.

Too often, enthusiastic and ambitious entrepreneurs jump in on an extra income project and suddenly find that the costs are beyond their abilities and the time requirements more than they can meet. It pays to lay it all out on paper before you get involved, and the clearer you can "see" everything before you start, the better your chances for success. The good news about online business is that you won‘t need as much investment as you would normally do with a business that sells physical products. You can start with a very small investment and with your own PC and run the business from home. Here is the most important "secret" of all, relating to starting and building a profitable home-based business, so read very carefully. Regardless of what kind of business you start, you must have the capital and the available time to sustain your business through the first six months of operation. Specifically, you must not count on Š Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

9


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It receiving or spending any money coming in from your business on yourself or for your bills during those first six months. All the income from your business during those first six months should be reinvested in your business in order for it to grow and reach your planned first year potential.

Once you've passed that first six months milestone, you can set up a small monthly salary for yourself, and begin enjoying the fruits of your labour. But the first six months of operation for any business are critical, so do not plan to use any of the money your business generates for yourself during that period.

If you've got your business plan properly organized, and have implemented the plan, you should at the end of your first year be able to begin thinking about hiring other people to alleviate some of your work-load. Remember this: Starting a successful business is not a means towards either a job for yourself or a way to keep busy. It should be regarded as the beginning of an enterprise that will grow and prosper, with you as the top boss. Eventually, you'll have other people doing all the work for you, even running the entire operation, while you are on vacation in the Bahamas or Hawaii and collect or receive regular income from your initial efforts.

3. Market Research: Find your Hungry Market

The first thing you must do is some basic market research. As an entrepreneur, this is the most important aspect of your business. You must find your “Hungry Market�.

Find out for yourself, first-hand, just how many people in your chosen niche are interested in your proposed product or service, and would be "willing to stand in line and pay money for it." This is known as defining your market and Š Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

10


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It pinpointing your customers. IF you have a product that is highly valued and that people are interested in buying. The product must be ―in demand‖ and it must have something to offer the potential customer above and beyond what they are already receiving from your competition. There must be a compelling reason for people to want to visit your website to begin with. There must also be a way for people to find your website – AND, a way for search engines to identify your site when people are searching. Using the right keywords to attract search engines is one of the most important things you can do as you establish an online business. But it is certainly not the only thing you have to do in order to succeed. In this instance I‘ll give you ―some secrets‖ to research your market. Secret # 1: Brain storming, make a list of ideas you already have. You can start with your passions and things you know well. If you truly love a particular product, put it on the list. Your list of ―potential products‖ can include almost anything. Don‘t worry so much about the profitability, keywords, and competition at this point. That comes after your list is compiled. For now, you should focus on creating a list of product ideas that people are looking for and products that will produce revenue for your business. Further evaluation later on in the process will determine if these are the ‗right products‘ or not.

Secret # 2: Go to

ClickBank has done all the market research

that you could possibly need when figuring out what niche you want to get into, this is a market place for digital products only. Secret # 3: Go to

www.amazon.com

here you will find all types of physical

products that are popular and which people are buying.

Secret # 4: Go to

look at the categories and chose the niche that you

are interested in and find out how those products are selling. Secret # 5: Buy some glossy magazines and see what the current trends are.

11


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It Secret # 6: Do a Keyword research which involves many different components and you will find that you can discover an enormous amount of information about your niche product by simply evaluating keywords. Using the appropriate online tools, you can find out:

 how many people are searching for particular keywords  which websites are competitors to your product  how competitors are using the keywords  whether paid clicks are a good strategy  and much more

Before you decide whether you have a passion to create an online niche business, around guinea pigs for example, you must determine whether or not there is a demand and enough space in the niche market for another website on guinea pigs. Selecting a profitable niche and marketing an informational product to your targeted audience starts with a thorough evaluation of multiple products. Once you have thoroughly exhausted multiple sources for brainstorming your product, your keyword research begins in earnest. It‘s important to approach the creation and development of your online business with a positive attitude. Your attitude can determine whether or not you succeed or fail. The world of online marketing is exciting and changing constantly. It requires that you focus on your research and constantly improve your products to ensure that you are providing added-value, fresh and new information to your customers. Approach your business with an open-mind, full of questions and looking for answers that will help you sell. After all, an online marketer‘s goal is to make money and the best way to make money is to always listen to your market. You will be more © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

12


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It successful when you have a positive attitude and you‘ll find valuable information in every customer interaction you have. With all this research, you will start your business online with all the confidence you need to start making money from the outset. Secret #7: Listen to what people are saying and what they are asking for. Visit forums. One way to find a list of forums is to check out www.big-boards.com where you‘ll find an incredible web directory that provides a comprehensive list of some of the most active and highly travelled message boards on the Internet. You can research boards in a variety of ways, including ranking by:  Post count  Member count  Previous week‘s data only  Alexa.com ranking systems

They offer a variety of ways to evaluate the boards. You can find information on a specific idea, or you can simply find those boards and communities that are most active and find out what they‘re talking about. Visiting a few of these boards can result in a lot of great ideas for further research. Now, assuming you've got your market targeted, and you know who your customers are going to be, the next step will be to reach them to offer your product or service.

4. Build Your Web Site A website that has an easy to navigate layout, a well-defined site map, and an easyto-use e-commerce component are all essential components of a successful online business.

Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It If you’re just starting out and you’re not sure how to setup your own website, then this section is for you, more experienced web users can move on. Here are the tools you’ll need:

 A domain (for example, www.YourSite.com)  A hosting account for your website  An HTML editor of some kind to create your web pages  An FTP program to put files on your web server  A word processing program to edit PLR material, etc.  A PDF creator to create downloadable PDF files  Graphics software for editing graphics that come with reprint rights packages, or to create your own graphics  An auto responder account  A PayPal or ClickBank Account  Keywords I know that seems like a lot but it‘s really not, since most of those tools are free. I will go over all the tools that I recommend. There may be some other tools you‘ll want to pick up as you go along, but I‘ll talk about those when the time is right. For now, let me talk very briefly about that core set of tools you‘ll need. I‘m not going to get into much technical detail here because I want to keep this chapter short and to the point. Domain name A domain (also called a domain name) is like a street address on the World Wide Web. When somebody types http://www.yourdomain.com into a web browser, they‘ll arrive at your website‘s home page.

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

14


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It What your domain will be is up to you, and will be driven by what product you want to sell. A domain name is the internet address that identifies your business. You can use different types of registration: .com is the most popular, this is the American and anyone can register. .co.uk is for the United Kingdom. .com.au this is the Australian, you can only register if your business is in Australia. If you‘re selling a PLR (Private Label Rights) product on list building, for example, you might purchase listbuildingsecrets.com. Or if you specialise in ―small business for women‖, the site could be smallbusinessforsmartwomen.com

But don‘t

assume you can buy whatever domain you want. You‘ll need to see if it‘s available first. You can check that at the sites where you can buy the domains. Domain names are cheap and can be bought from www.godaddy.com or www.namecheap.com Always remember to buy a domain name that is easy to remember; do not choose something long and full of hyphens e.g. www.good-law-services.com

Hosting Your Site

Hosting companies own web servers. They‘ll rent you space on one to put your website files, and they‘ll tell you how to tell your domain registrar how to send traffic to the right web server. Hosting companies typically charge monthly fees for their service. The fees

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

15


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It vary, but there are two I know of that don‘t charge very much but still give you great service. The first is http://www.HostGator.com That‘s the hosting company I use myself. You‘ll get great features and service with it. The second is http://www.LunarPages.com Their Baby plan is probably all you‘ll need for quite some time, and it‘s only $7.95 per month. You‘ll be able to host as many domains as you want, which will come in handy as you grow your business to sell more than one product. If you‘re thinking that you want to save the $7.95 per month by going with a free hosting provider, don‘t do it. Those companies usually have very bad support, and they usually limit your account in ways that will be more frustrating than helpful. A WYSIWIG Editor Also known as an HTML Editor. When it comes time to create web pages for your site, you‘ll use a language called HTML to do it. It stands for Hypertext Mark-up Language. It‘s based on a series of tags which tell a browser how to display things, like this: <Strong>some bold text</strong> You can use Notepad on a Windows computer to type your HTML, but since that‘s just a text editor, you‘re prone to make errors. HTML editors help you write HTML so you don‘t make any mistakes and create a page that a browser can‘t display properly. http://www.NVU.com is a great free editor. With it, non-technical people can build nice web pages that look professional, even if they have zero HTML experience. Another one to try is Dreamweaver. It‘s a very powerful tool, and the learning curve can be steep, but doing the basics with it isn‘t all that hard. You can get a free trial at

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

16


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It http://www.adobe.com . You‘ll also find links to video tutorials there, or you can Google Dreamweaver tutorial to find plenty of them online. FTP Software An HTML editor lets you create pages, but you‘ll need FTP software to get those pages to your web server. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. An FTP program lets you connect to your web server and copy files from your computer up to that web server. That‘s what people mean when they talk about uploading files (it‘s the opposite of downloading, by the way). Here‘s a great free FTP program you can download: http://filezilla-project.org You can download the version that‘s most appropriate for your computer (for most people, that‘s probably the Windows version). Once you‘ve downloaded it and installed it —which is as easy as double-clicking the file you‘ve downloaded—you‘ll be all set to upload files. Word Processing Program

A word processing program lets you create or edit e-Book files (or write business letters, or make your shopping list). You might be familiar with Microsoft Office, or the Microsoft Word Program that comes with it. That‘s probably the most popular word process program available today, but it‘s also a little pricey if you don‘t already have it. © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

17


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It A great alternative that won‘t cost you a dime is Open Office: http://www.OpenOffice.org It has programs very similar to ones in the Microsoft Office suite of programs, including one called Writer…which is pretty much Microsoft Word for free.

A PDF Converter If you buy a PLR e-Book and you change it to put your name on it, you‘ll need to create a PDF file from it. PDF stands for (P) portable (D) document (F) format. It‘s a format anybody with any computer can read (but not edit), as long as they have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. The good news is that Open Office lets you automatically create PDF files from Writer files with the press of a button. If you already have another word processing program and you just want to be able to create PDF files, you can try free options like this one: http://www.doc2pdf.net/converter

An Auto responder Account An auto responder is what lets you schedule emails to send to people automatically. It‘s really just software. You can buy your own auto responder to install on your web server, but the smarter choice is to subscribe to an auto responder service. You‘ll pay a monthly fee to do that, but the huge benefits are: 1. You don‘t have to maintain (or set up) the software yourself 2. Your emails are much more likely to get delivered I recommend the following auto responder service: http://www.GetResponse.com © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

18


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It You‘ll be allowed to set up an unlimited number of auto responders and messages within each one. And you can send out broadcast messages to your list anytime you want. It‘s extremely easy to set up your account, and it costs only $19.97 per month. Another very popular option is http://www.AWeber.com , although they‘ve raised their prices recently to a level significantly more than Monster Response™. Apart from having all the tools you‘ll need for your internet business, it‘s a fantastic program that builds you a HUGE passive income too!

PayPal Account Having a PayPal account in good standing is going to be crucial to your online success because this is where you will be accepting all of the money you‘ll be earning. When starting out, I suggest using a PayPal account because it‘s quick and easy to create a pay button and you have instant access to the funds. The only problem is trying to pay affiliates. If you‘re going to rely on your own marketing efforts to make sales then this is the best choice. ClickBank Account Another option for taking credit card payments online is to sign up at http://www.ClickBank.com .

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

19


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It ClickBank will let you take credit card payments and will also let you manage a simple, easy affiliate program for your own products. They‘ll handle paying your affiliates for you every two weeks. It‘s a great tool. Sign up for a free ClickBank account that will give you a unique nickname, which is what ClickBank calls your ID (your free account won‘t let you sell products, but having the account is a necessary first step). Keywords Content is very important to promote your online business. You will have to make sure that your site becomes visible by using certain keywords that are centred to your online business. This is a critical step to confirm that you have a viable product for your business and that you are using the best keywords to attract search engines and traffic. When you are considering the keywords, you should aim for the following:  Determine if the keywords you‘ve chosen are being searched

 Determine if a particular niche can be expanded to build a website around the keywords and keyword phrases

 Identify keywords and similar keywords for creating content, writing blog posts, and marketing the niche product © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

20


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It

 Identify keywords that can be used to create pay-per-click (PPC) ads, create an e-Book, write an article, or prepare an article

 Organize keywords so they optimize your content

Keywords are the most important words included in your content and on your website. A good keyword strategy is essential. It will help you determine the most effective words to use, based on how people search for your product. Your keywords will be used to create valuable content and to promote and market your products through multiple methods of advertising such as article marketing, paid advertising, and other methods. Another important reason to optimize keywords is to use them in social bookmarking. This is one of the very effective ways to gain traffic to your website and enjoy more links coming in to you. Internet users are able to save their bookmarks and then tag them with keywords. People are able to share keywords with other people and also to take advantage of browsing keywords that other people have bookmarked as well. Your average online user can tag anything they want so your keywords become essential with this strategy. With social bookmarking, you can have hundreds and thousands of people finding your site as a result of keywords being added as tags on sites such as:

 http://digg.com/  http://www.delicious.com/

 http://www.reddit.com/  http://technorati.com/

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

21


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It The keyword research for your niche website must be extensive. This is the most important aspect about establishing your website in order to create content that attracts search engines and, ultimately, paying customers. Do your homework when it comes to keywords and you‘ll reap many benefits and rewards in your online business.

Search Volume You must evaluate the search volume for your words with some tools that are mentioned below: 

Wordtracker (www.freewordtracker.com) is probably the most well-known and highly used tool for determining the number of searches that are conducted for a particular word or niche phrase.

Yahoo (http://sem.smallbusiness.yahoo.com/searchenginemarketing/) is another tool that shows you how many people search for specific keywords or phrases. You‘ll find the number of visits for that specific keyword and for any related keyword phrases. It should be noted that Overture has had some problems with this tool and many users have moved to Wordtracker.

Google Trends (www.google.com/trends) is a search tool that displays search volume and it also offers seasonal performance of specific keywords.

Nichebot (www.nichebot.com) is a keyword research website that helps you find long-tail keywords, hidden keywords, semantic keywords. This site provides you with a wealth of information to help you expand your keyword lists and your online business.

Keyword Discovery (www.Keyworddiscovery.com) compiles keyword search statistics by evaluating the major search engines across the Internet.

© Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

22


Secrets Revealed! Start Your Online Business With Success Written All Over It When you key in your keyword or keyword phrases into these tools, you find approximately how many times people search for that keyword each day (search volume). You want to find keywords that have very high searches on a daily basis. Google Trends also offers you opportunity to evaluate trends over time so you can determine if the searches for a particular keyword are increasing or decreasing. This will help you decide if this is the right product for your business.

5. Build Your List Something that we have always heard is to build your list in order to make sales. As a beginner you do not have a list, so in order to start building it you will need to send your future customers to a landing page in which you are offering a highly desirable report with valuable content for free. Once the visitor is on the landing page or squeeze page, they will have to subscribe to your members‘ only club in order to receive the free report .They will only need to leave their name and primary e-mail address. Make sure that you have powerful headlines on your squeeze page to capture the visitors‘ attention and prompt them to subscribe to your list. You must state all the benefits that they will receive by getting the report, such as solving a problem, making money, looking better etc. And you need to put emphasis that this is a limited offer and that they need to act quickly and direct them to the opt-in form in a simple way without any distractions, just with an arrow pointing at the box where they will leave their name and

e-mail address. You will also need to give them the guarantee that you will not

share their details with anyone else. A privacy statement is very important if you want to maximize the increase in your subscription. Once they have signed to your members‘ only club, you can start emailing them; this is when the auto responder starts working for you. You have to set up an email auto responder that will deliver your messages on time; this depends on how you have customized the setting for the e-mails to go out. The auto responder provider will © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

For example, if you are interested in the ―beauty‖ niche and in ―make money‖ niche, you can create these two auto responder campaigns at the same time but make sure that you manage the e-mail lists separately and according to each type of niche. Providing valuable information to your list gives you credibility in your chosen niche and you become an authority in your field. Choose The Right Topic For Your Clubs’ News Letter Look at what your competitors are offering and what your prospective customers are interested in so you can start providing useful information about their chosen interests and start building a relationship with them. Try to choose a niche with an ongoing demand so you will be able to cater to that demand for years to come so your subscribers will buy from you again and again. The idea of building a list is to have in place a customer base that will be ready to buy when you promote your products or your affiliate products. The relationship that you have with your list is imperative for you to become a successful marketer. You should aim to impress them, to motivate them and most importantly, for them to trust you. The more free valuable information that you give away to your list, the more responsive the list will be! An astute marketer will make use of the free information to pre-sell a product.

A lot of people assume that a PLR product is something they can buy and use right out of the box, without changing it. Although you can do that, I don‘t recommend it. If you don‘t change anything, your product will be exactly the same as somebody else‘s. That can bite you later on. It‘s almost always smarter to customize a product and put your own stamp on it. One important tip: SPEED is vitally important. The longer a product sits on your hard drive collecting digital dust, the less likely you are to use that product to make money.

6. Traffic In order to build your list we need to implement traffic which can be bought or can be free. In this case we will concentrate on free traffic sent to your squeeze page. This can be achieved by using articles, blogs, social media, search engines and forums. Articles: outsource some articles related to your niche, edit them and include your name and URL address on the footer and submit them to: www.enzinearticles.com www.GoArticles.com www.ArticlesBase.com www.Articledashboard.com

The higher the number of articles you have in circulation, the bigger the chances you will get to drive traffic to your website. © Copyright 2011 Mildred Williams & Best Gateway To Success Ltd. All Rights Reserved.

Depending on your goals, you may have to put blog postings up daily or perhaps only weekly. You need to stay on top of your blog; if your blog readers see a lull in your postings they will lose interest. A good rule of thumb is to post at least 4 times per week. Anything less than that would be ineffective for most purposes. Do remember to answer the questions posted by your followers. Never ignore them! Be honest and realistic with the answers and you will determine whether it is time to blog or not to blog. Social Media: Get accounts in Twitter, My Space, Facebook, Linkedln, Spyke and YouTube. Start using them and do not forget to link them to your blog. Search Engines: Incorporate highly desirable keywords to your webpage so when someone is searching for your niche the search engines will recognize your webpage. Quality content makes a difference to search engines. Forums: You must spend some time getting familiar with the community and building a relationship with them before you start selling something. Give them tips, useful information and once you get the reputation of being helpful, then you can discreetly send them to your web page via a link .You should also update your profile by putting your URL address.

7. Customer Care This is very important. When you are in any business you must reassure your customers that they are being looked after 24/7. In your webpage you should include a contact telephone number and an e-mail address where they can contact you. You must act immediately
