Have you ever sat down and thought ofrepparttar differences between business onrepparttar 125233 Internet and business offline?

Obviouslyrepparttar 125234 differences are many. There is one BIG difference, however, that many small business people overlook. That difference is PROMOTION. I'm not talking about marketing a product, your web site will do that.

I'm talking about promoting YOU and YOUR site.

Why are we in business? The answer for most is pretty easy, to make money. Here'srepparttar 125235 dilemma; we were not TAUGHT by our parents or in school to promote ourselves. It wasn't polite.

Here's some good news. The term SELF PROMOTER is not a dirty phrase! In fact, it is REQUIRED if you want to succeed onrepparttar 125236 Internet. I'm not talking about becomingrepparttar 125237 obnoxious person who everyone avoids atrepparttar 125238 dinner party because he's trying to pawn off his last time share unit. I'm talking about doing business like a business, not like a hobby.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN TAUGHT HOW. This is one reason we don't know how to do it and do it well. Until a few years ago many people thought that their path was going to be in a job with a company inrepparttar 125239 offline world. You remember a JOB don't you?

Well, part ofrepparttar 125240 job included getting business cards and benefiting from allrepparttar 125241 advertising and NAME RECOGNITION thatrepparttar 125242 company had developed. Now we end up onrepparttar 125243 Net and guess what; WE'RE ON OUR OWN and unprepared.
