Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet By Tasos Vasilopoulos Part 11 - Time to work – Submit your website to Search Engines and Directories Introduction This article makes part of a series of 20 articles. The subject of this series is creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on Internet. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 9 - Create pages that will contain links”, I have guided you in creating pages in your website that will contain reciprocal links. In this article I will help you how to choose right web hosting company. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 10 – Choose a webhosting company”, I have indicated to you important issues to take in consideration when choosing a company to host your webpages. In this article I will show you what to do and what to avoid while submitting your website to Search Engines and Directories. Interesting articles on this issue can be found in my website. See in menu under section Articles for home-based businesses option Search Engines Ranking Submit your website to Search Engines and Directories Generally, major Search Engines send their spiders once a month to crawl web and gather URLs and content of as much web pages as they can. Then they process importance and relevance of each web page and build their databases. From these databases come listings of web pages, when someone makes a search. Even though every Search Engine provides a way to submit your web pages (only home page or a few more) for inclusion in their databases, it is better that your web pages are found from links in other websites. This way, they examine your website, or send their spider to “fetch” your pages. If these links come from important websites of great relevance with theme of your web pages, then they do include your website in their databases. But this takes time, usually 8 weeks, since Search Engines (the stuff behind them) do have a lot of new web pages requests for indexing to elaborate daily. So, I suggest that you wait, regarding major Search Engines (Google, MSN, AOL, Alltheweb, Altavista, Inktomi – Inktomi is not a Search Engine by itself. It is a database of webpages that gives its results to other search engines and directories, like Hotbot). On contrary I suggest that you search and find smaller Search Engines or local Search Engines and Directories, where you have to submit your web pages, since they crawl Internet rarely. This way you will get better and quicker results. Do not pay to be included in Directory of Yahoo (it costs $300 yearly). There are programs that can accelerate this procedure of submitting to smaller Search Engines and directories. They are free, shareware or cost not much money. Use them. They include lists of smaller Search Engines and directories you will need much-much time to find about.

Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet By Tasos Vasilopoulos Part 19 - Time to take action – Become a teacher, a co-worker, a mentor Introduction This article makes part of a series of 20 articles. The subject of this series is creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on Internet. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 18 – Time to take action – The “Follow-up” method”, I have presented to you my method of following-up my affiliates effectively. In this article I will teach you your main job as a Network Marketer. Become a teacher, a co-worker, a mentor Your job now, that you have found your people, is to convert your affiliates into well-trained co-workers. You have to teach them how to work effectively and establish their own profitable home business on Internet. You have to train them, make first steps together, support them, motivate them, reward them, and correct them. In a few words, YOU HAVE TO BE THERE FOR THEM. You will receive many questions from your affiliates regarding effectiveness of “this” marketing method or “that” tool to promote their businesses. Answer them quickly and tell truth. If you do not know answer or you do not have experience needed to give a good advice, tell it. And, if it is possible, use also other marketing methods, apart from promoting your website through your link popularity. Do this in order to be able to confront these marketing methods to your marketing method and also be in position to give right answer to your co-workers. There will be people who won’t follow your suggestion of creating and promoting their own website. But they will be able to develop their own successful marketing methods. Free or paid advertisement, word of mouth, offline advertisement to local newspapers or by flyers, online advertisement through ezines or by writing articles and ebooks. All these are marketing methods that can bring results. As I mentioned before, this is a numbers game. By referring people with all ways you can, soon you will get your leaders, those who can become successful and make you successful. Network Marketing on Internet is not same with Internet Marketing. In Network Marketing you build your network. This network is bringing you your residual income. Two thirds of my income now comes from my Network, even though I still am one of best in my group. After almost three years in business I have leaders I need. And I am making more of them. Some of them are better from me, make more money than me and needed less time to reach my status. I had patience to support them all way to their success, keep them motivated and help them when they needed it. Now I am getting rewarded for this. Many of these people, when they first joined this Network Marketing company didn’t know what they are entering in. I had to convert them in to Network Marketers. They had potentiality, but they didn’t know it from beginning. I had to keep them in until they could see results coming from their work. This could take months, even a year! This is reason many people fail in this business. They may be referring many people as their affiliates, but they do not know how to convert them into Network Marketers. The do not offer them all they need to become successful. They may follow-up with them using auto-responders or referring them to a forum or a discussion board about Network Marketing. But this is not enough. You have to give your affiliates special attention. Pass them your knowledge. Present them a proven business plan to implement. Work along with them. Even build their websites! I’ve done that. I was building websites of my co-workers and they improve them afterwards. Do that. IT WILL PAY YOU BACK.
