Be Ready for Change

Written by Dennis Eppestine

Change is scary, isn't it? After all, things might not be perfect right now, but at least we're here and getting through it. Change might make it worse instead of better!

But without change, there is no growth, no improvement, and in scientific circles no life. Life is change, and if we're to fully appreciaterepparttar gift of life, we must adapt to change.

OK, on to something a little less important than life - Internet Marketing! If you can't handle change, you better get out now!

New developments happen in days and weeks onrepparttar 131910 Internet, as opposed to months and years in regular marketing. If you don't stay up-to-date, you can't compete.

I'm not suggesting you jump on every new bandwagon that comes along. Some of them are pretty bad! But if something looks good to you; if something looks like a real improvement, then you have to embrace it. Use it, improve your knowledge, then get ready for something new to come along!

Three Ways to Add Versatile Content to Your Site or eZine

Written by Mitchell Harper

------------------------------------------ Introduction ------------------------------------------

If you run a content driven web site or eZine, then I think you will agree with me when I say that finding free, quality content onrepparttar ‘Net is a pain. Sure, people are writing articles which they want published, but nine times out of ten, these articles are just “copy-pasted” or recycled from someone else’s articles, and content like this wont give your site a particularly high profile.

There are heaps of ways to add some pizzazz and glitz to your site or eZines content that will keep your visitors coming back on a regular basis. In this article I will talk about three of them: Interviews, Reviews and Books.

------------------------------------------ Interviews ------------------------------------------ People like reading about other people: What they do, how they do it, and most importantly, why they do it. So do you, right? Well I know I do. Have you ever thought about emailing a specific person from a company and requesting a “virtual interview” with them?

When I say virtual interview, I mean conductingrepparttar 131908 interview via a series of emailed questions. I have, and every single person that I emailed was more than happy to give merepparttar 131909 time of day to answer some questions about them, their job role, their history, etc. When you think about it, it’s a win-win situation for both you and that person: You add more quality content to your site, and they get promos and links back to their site from your interview (This is a must, and can berepparttar 131910 deciding factor in nailingrepparttar 131911 interview).

But just how would you go about asking for a virtual interview? And whom would you ask? Let me give you an example.

About two weeks ago, one of my editors (Tim Pabst) interviewed Markus Maki from This interview added value to our site, because inrepparttar 131912 interview Markus talked about his industry experience,repparttar 131913 development ofrepparttar 131914 3Dmark series, as well as his opinions on technology, etc. No one else has this kind of “insider” information about Markus on their site, so it makes our virtual interview one-of-a-kind.

Here’srepparttar 131915 email that Tim used to ask Markus to participate in our virtual interview:

Hi Markus, My name is Time Pabst, and I am one ofrepparttar 131916 editors for I have been a huge fan of for as long as I can remember, and I was wondering if I would be able to conduct an email-based interview with you.

This interview would consist of you answering some short questions about your life, job and experiences and simply emailing them back to me. Your questions will be compiled into an article and posted on our site.

Your interview will also include several mentions of, thus creating more links back to your site. Please let me know if and when this is possible.

I look forward to your reply. Tim Pabst

Notice howrepparttar 131917 email was short and torepparttar 131918 point? No marketing gook, no confusing sentences, just a quick description ofrepparttar 131919 who’s, what’s, when’s, why’s and how’s ofrepparttar 131920 interview.

The email was a success, andrepparttar 131921 Interview questions were sent to Markusrepparttar 131922 next day. We hadrepparttar 131923 interview onrepparttar 131924 site within a week. You can see it at

------------------------------------------ Reviews ------------------------------------------

Reviews are another great way to add some variety to your sites content. You don’t have to be a professional to review a product or web site. Reviews are merely one person’s opinion of an item with some technical babble thrown in for good measure.

I am currently inrepparttar 131925 process of reviewing Namo Web Editor 5. It is a complete web editing solution, similar to FrontPage. I decided to review this product because a lot of my visitors are newbies torepparttar 131926 web, just learning how to start programming.
