There's a NEW Mafia in Town

Not only that, mull this one over...

Remember, all that GREAT free information provided to you byrepparttar home and small business owner? POOF! No more. Either you will pay for this information or no longer receive it. After all, you cannot expect these small businesses to absorb allrepparttar 109585 costs by themselves, can you? It is just not feasible - that would put them out of business. So expect to open your wallets, too, ordinary citizens.

And why do you think it is that allrepparttar 109586 large entities like AOL, Yahoo, and others are jumping on this bandwagon so gleefully? Because they know that now that can send us allrepparttar 109587 junk mail they want with virtually no competition, because THEY can afford it. After all, $3,000 a month is a small price to pay for eliminating your competition, isn't it?

Of course,repparttar 109588 REAL spammers are going to have a field day with this one, too. They forge email headers now, so what is to stop them from forging Habeas' header? The threat of a lawsuit, you say. Ha! Surely, you jest... How can you sue someone who is invisible (impossible to find)?

The REAL clincher to all this is that you will be paying this "protection" money to a PRIVATE corporation. Wake up, people! Would you allow "Joe Ordinary " to just rob you onrepparttar 109589 street and not report him torepparttar 109590 authorities? Heck no!

So can you explain why we are allowing Habeas to do this to us? They have even eliminated all of their competition by applying for a patent. Sounds likerepparttar 109591 Mafia to me - eliminaterepparttar 109592 competition...

Here is what I saying... We lay down and took it whenrepparttar 109593 Internet Service Providers decided that it was their job to decide what email we should receive, forrepparttar 109594 most part. My ISP gives me a choice - I would not have it ANY other way. I pay them, they DO NOT pay me. Are we going to continue down this same path until we have no freedom?

As one popular commercial says, "It sucks when other people make choices for you, doesn't it?" My question to you is, how long are we going to be strong-armed into "protection" before we say, "Enough is enough!"

As with any marketing strategy, your free course ideas are limited only by your imagination--as long as you keeprepparttar three rules of thumb listed above in mind.

Develop Your Course Once, Teach It Thousands of Times

The best and most cost-effective way to develop and deliver your free online course is to use an autoresponder service that allows you to set up several (five to eight) messages which will be generated automatically to those who sign up forrepparttar 109584 class.

Set up each outgoing message as one "lesson" inrepparttar 109585 course; inrepparttar 109586 first lesson, you might provide a complete overview of what informationrepparttar 109587 course will cover, followed by more specific information in lesson two, and so forth.

Each lesson needs to be no longer than a short article, ranging from 500 to 900 words.

You might also want to include little "assignments" atrepparttar 109588 end of each lesson,encouraging your students to put into actionrepparttar 109589 material covered that day.

As for pacing your course, select an autoresponder service that allows you to preschedulerepparttar 109590 time intervals between lessons.

You can then choose to send a new lesson out each day, every other day, once a week, or whatever.

You only need to develop your course and set uprepparttar 109591 mailing strategy once, and letrepparttar 109592 autoresponder take it from there.

Usingrepparttar 109593 Free Course to Promote Your Business

Keeping in mind that your free online course is a marketing tool, you will of course want to somehow refer your students back to your business Web site.

This means incorporatingrepparttar 109594 additional products or services that you offer, along with your URL, into each and every lesson.

The goal here is to strike a balance between sounding flagrantly self-promotional and being too subtle.

In other words, you do not want to chase off those who have signed up for your free course with a barrage of hype; most of us already see too much advertising daily, and have become desensitized to it.

Atrepparttar 109595 same time, you want your "students" to know where they can find additional information or tools onrepparttar 109596 subject--at *your* site.

You can accomplish this by covering each lesson in greater depth on your site (e.g., "For more information on today's lesson, visit"), including a trip to your URL as part of each day's assignment, or simply posting a brief advertisement for your site atrepparttar 109597 end of each lesson.

If your course-takers feel they have benefited fromrepparttar 109598 free information they have received from you, they will be much more inclined to at least take a look at what else you have to offer.

Many Internet entrepreneurs currently offer free online courses to gain exposure and expand their clientele.

Although developing your own course requires a good deal of effort up front,repparttar 109599 pay-off in terms or increased traffic and sales is tremendous.

Incorporaterepparttar 109600 "teach'em to reach 'em" philosophy into your marketing strategy, and watch your business soar!
