Myth #4 - You'll get millions of new customers by putting up a billboard onrepparttar Information Superhighway

Typically, this pitch is given alongrepparttar 118898 lines of "Imagine adding 30-40 million new prospects to your target market almost overnight. That is whatrepparttar 118899 Internet can do for you". This, in our opinion, is a less-than ethical pitch from promoters. The reality is that, unlike real billboards on a highway, nobody will pass by your Web site onrepparttar 118900 way to somewhere else. It is much more like building a place in a desert and then having to buildrepparttar 118901 road to you. People only come to your Web site if they know you are there; they must have your Web address to visit you.

Myth #5 - Internet malls haverepparttar 118902 same benefits as real malls

Internet malls do not haverepparttar 118903 same benefits as real malls. In a real mall, you stroll by stores and look inrepparttar 118904 windows. If you see something you like, you walk inside. In an Internet mall, you don't pass by other shops onrepparttar 118905 way to another store. Many Internet mall owners claim you will get increased traffic because you are in their mall. The reality is that it's just as easy to get buried in a mall as anywhere else onrepparttar 118906 Internet. Some Internet malls are so large that your competition will be in there with you.
