"Learn From Their Multi-Million Dollar Mistakes!"

Written by A.T.Rendon

Here is a classic example of what NOT to do when conducting business online. That is, unless you can afford to throw away millions of dollars.

Have you seen those ads by x10 for that tiny camera that you can hook up to your computer?

It is estimated that as many as 1/3 of ALL people surfing online have been exposed to their advertising campaign. Those are HUGE numbers.

Visit their web site if you need to refresh your memory of them and their ads:

If they were to be judged by exposure alone, then you might think thatrepparttar advertising campaign has been a great success.

However, it has largely failed to convert surfers to buyers and that isrepparttar 119400 true test of a successful online ad campaign.

So what happened to x10?

They sunk an enormous amount of money and faith inrepparttar 119401 pop-under window form of advertising through Yahoo,repparttar 119402 online version ofrepparttar 119403 New York Times, atrepparttar 119404 MSN web site and viarepparttar 119405 pop-up window that opens as you download something offrepparttar 119406 Internet.

That is a LOUD chorus of people saying they find NOTHING of interest or value at that web site.

It says a great deal aboutrepparttar 119409 products they offer andrepparttar 119410 design of their web site.

Since then, x10 has tried to bring in a slightly larger range of products but it still seems very narrow.

What went wrong?

X10 failed to partner with a significant array of related online businesses that could have brought it an added source of revenue via commissions.

Such a huge flow of traffic and they cannot tap intorepparttar 119411 pocketbooks of their visitors.

Even small business online can partner withrepparttar 119412 likes of Dell Computer, Delta Airlines, Visa Nextcard and American Express through such affiliate programs as are offered by Linkshare,
