The "REAL" info products secret and how to get out of the cycle.Written by Ed Charkow
Continued from page 1
Let's summarize: 1.) You purchase e-books and info products for secrets that will tell you how to make money on web. 2.) You don't do anything with information, because you don't have skills or thousands of dollars. 3.) You buy whatever guy sells you on backend because that first e-book you read was great (and your hoping this one will give you missing pieces).
How do you get out of cycle? 1.) Admit that you have wasted a lot of time and money on something that doesn't work for you since you don't have skills required. 2.) Decide if you want to learn skills required to create a niche website, e-book, or info product. If you DON'T want to learn all that stuff, decide to have someone make it for you. There are companies like Stmadeveloper that will help you make those ideas a reality for less than some of those info products you wasted your money on. 3.) Give up, recognize fact that you aren't ever going to do anything on-line to make money. Just stop doing cycle..... you are smarter than that and they are preying on your hope.
There is really only one true secret to making money on web. Get a space of your own, make it valuable to others, make it "sell," and promote it through effective methods.
Good luck on your journey.

Top 10 Ways To Irritate Your VisitorsWritten by David Bell

6. Sign up to use a really slow-loading hit counter and put button inside of a TABLE so that nothing appears until hit-counter responds. This is possibly best way to keep visitors from stealing from you as it keeps them from even reading your content and possibly typing it into their site from memory. For this to work reliably, you must avoid putting height and width into call for hit counter graphic. You can improve effectiveness of this technique by inserting not only a hit counter button, but a long string of banner exchange banners. 7. For occasional visitor that inadvertently makes their way to your ezine subscription form, fear not. All is not lost. You can still rid yourself of them by asking lots and lots of personal questions. Don't just ask for their email address. Ask for their mailing address, phone number, sex, age, hobbies, religion, race and some other things best not discussed here. This technique works equally well when applied to your order forms and minimizes your trip to UPS office to ship products. 8. Splash page. You gotta have a Splash Page. Lots of slow loading animation. If you can combine this with requirement to download another obscure plug-in, you'll have hit a home run. I'm especially impressed by many sites that have upped ante to include two splash pages before you ever get to even first word of content. Stunning! Brilliant! 9. Reconfigure visitor's browser window. This will drive them crazy! People hate it when you run a script on your pages that expands user's browser window to fill entire screen and then do away with all of browser Toolbar features such as Navigation Toolbar and Location Toolbar, 10 Finally, an oldie but goodie. Make your background dark and your text just a shade or two brighter. This makes it impossible to read your text and will rid you of visitors before they have a chance to clog up you server logs. If this is not possible on your site, use alternate technique of putting most of your content in PDF files so that visitor has to download them and launch another application. Very effective. Did I mention that all of these cool ways to irritate visitors work even better at driving away people reviewing your site for places like Yahoo, LookSmart and other directories to whom you've paid large sums of money to review your site and add it to their directory? I hope this helps in your future marketing decisions.
