Written by Pamela Heywood

Do you know how much easier it is to learnrepparttar right way to do things if at first you seerepparttar 132013 wrong way? Think about it. Think about everything you ever learned by trial and error fromrepparttar 132014 first time you fell off you bike onwards. Well, I'm going to show you how to apply this learning principle to your online efforts in seven easy lessons, no risk. And believe me, I'm an expert!

1. Don't get your own domain

Why would you want to invest a measly $35 (max) in your business annually on some name? You know who you are, right? You have no trouble believing that several hundred gazillion Internet strangers in almost as many countries will trust you - if they find you - even without a reputable brand and ID.

Fine, go get yourself one of those l-o-n-g URLs at a free website that takes at least as long to load as it does to remember. Better still go get one of those self-replicated, absolutely identical, clone "programs" with a FREE website. Write me when you get it torepparttar 132015 top ofrepparttar 132016 search engine listings. No, I cant wait that long, write me when you get it listed onrepparttar 132017 search engines at all. I expect my mailbox won't be overflowing.

2. Don't have any original products to sell

You're OK with that business-in-a-box (for people in boxes, I guess?) that only requires you to give things away. It only cost you $69.95 to get in, so there's no risk. No selling, anyone can do this ... You'll earn $689,000,075 daily (give or take $689 million). On WHAT exactly, may I ask?

While you're at it, just get a heap of affiliate banners, throw them on a page, invite two friends to visit and they're gonna buy stuff. Don't sell anything you know about, don't userepparttar 132018 products and services yourself and above all make sure there is no information, explanation, testimonials or even text anywhere to be found on your site.

Don't be fooled byrepparttar 132019 "experts" who tell you thatrepparttar 132020 only way to make any real money is to have something that's 100% yours (your profit), can be delivered online and is not only wanted by your carefully chosen market, but actually useful.

3. Don't publish a newsletter

See lesson 6 if you MUST do email marketing. Everyone, well both of them who found you by accident, maybe they wererepparttar 132021 two friends? Is gonna buy, buy, buy,repparttar 132022 moment they hit your website and read your carefully written information about your products and services that tells them what's in it for them. Oh, no I told you that you don't need it. How silly of me.

Don't think that you have to prove yourself to be an expert in your field: don't think thatrepparttar 132023 least it does is keep reminding folks to come back and that you didn't fly-by-night. You'll never need to ask people to recommend you to their friends or put your offers in front of them many times before they'll be comfortable to buy from you. Forget marketing rules.

4. Submit your site to 100,000,000 places daily

You've got masses of time on your hands right? So you can afford to spend it all, wildly submitting your site everywhere to 9 million search engines and 99 gazillion free links pages.

Throw enough $*** and it will stick, won't it? It'll stink too! When did you last look for something onrepparttar 132024 9 millionth search engine? When did you trawl around links pages looking for a good deal? Do you think you'rerepparttar 132025 only one who doesn't?

If so, then it's probably time to give your link a "facelift." The best way to do this is with a redirect URL, or simply, a redirect.

First, forrepparttar 132011 uninitiated, a URL isrepparttar 132012 destination address of your website. Generally, it begins with 'www.' or 'http://'.

Here is an example ofrepparttar 132017 simplicity of a redirect.

First, I'll show you a long URL string that I have for one of my replicated sites:

Notice how bulky that looks. That's too much to communicate overrepparttar 132018 phone or even to remember.

Here'srepparttar 132019 redirect that I have for that address:

That's 'easy to' say and to remember. Plus, I includedrepparttar 132020 keyword 'phone' in it for word recognition.

Also, when that redirect is clicked on,repparttar 132021 site visitor will notice that when they arrive atrepparttar 132022 site, they will see that simple redirect in their browser URL window, as opposed torepparttar 132023 long string.

The company that promotes that URL uses a popup ad too.

Redirects can also be used to camouflage your URL.
