Whatever Happened to Proofreading?

It also pays to remember that your site design and your writing should be tailored to your targeted market. If you’re selling nose rings, use wild backgrounds and slang. But if you’re selling fine jewelry, keep it simple, clean and easy to navigate and stay away fromrepparttar slang. Otherwise, you’d better carry lots of nose rings!

After you’ve written your sales letter or web content, read it through. (To save yourself some time, you can use a text editor with spell check, and paste it into whatever program you’re using.) Then send it to someone else to check it—someone inrepparttar 101971 same age group as your target market or a professional editor. If it’s a sales letter, sendrepparttar 101972 ‘finished’ product to yourself first to make surerepparttar 101973 formatting came out right.

After you’ve done that and uploaded your pages to your server, do it again. I hope you’re going to check your links, anyway, to make sure THEY work. So you might as well check everything else, too. Sendrepparttar 101974 URL to a few friends with different computers and different browsers to see that it looks as good on theirs as it does on yours.

A little time spent assuring it’s right will make a huge difference in your site’s traffic, and probably in your bank account, too.

Looksmart have tried to offsetrepparttar potential backlash by offeringrepparttar 101970 first 100 clicks per month ($15) for "free" ..but only forrepparttar 101971 first 20 months (which totals $300, so you don't lose out...unless you happen to get more than 100 clicks per *month*, or want to stay in Looksmart beyond 20 months).

Looksmart has also changed some links within its directory to *affiliate* links in an attempt to earn commission from sales. That's right, if you submit a direct link to your site, LookSmart may change it to an affiliate link with them as your new affiliate! My advice...
