One of keys to understanding how to earn income online is to quietly observe how others succeed - or how they stumble and fall in their marketing efforts.
If you've ever posted an url on a free for all links site, no doubt, you were promptly deluged with dozens of "confirmation e-mails," most of which were nothing more than advertisements for some fancy new product or business program.
If you're new to net, instead of quickly deleting these irritating mails, it may ultimately be to your benefit to sample a few first. Glance inside and study how these advertisers are trying to get your attention. Notice use of language. The catch phrases used. Study how are they trying to entice you to click on their url link and visit their website.
Are they using hardsell? Or are they being somewhat evasive and coy, hinting that you're missing your one final shot at financial success, unless you do something right now! The catch is that you won't know "exactly" what it is they're about, until you take a look-see at their web site. -- A good technique.
Also emulate those techniques which you find to be effective. Or that ring of truth. A good advertisement is one that puts you in a receptive or positive mindset.
And learn what not to do, from those advertisements that you find to be poorly conceived, insulting, awkwardly written, or unprofessional. If you don't like what you're reading. Ask yourself why. You certainly don't want to waste your precious time designing an advertising campaign, that will only turn potential customers off.
One of smartest things you can also do is to memorize names that you come across from day to day. Names such as Allan Gardyne, Ken Evoy, or Corey Rudl, to site a few examples.
This is very important.
You will notice that internet entrepreneurs such as those just mentioned, are accomplished at getting their name, their business, or their product, in front of buying public. And they do it legitimately, without spamming or using other unsavory methods.
In fact, many of these established internet entrepreneurs, never use ffa sites, or any annoying devices such as those gruesome pop-up ads that ensnare your web brower. Most will not post to popular business newsgroups.
But how have you come to recognize their names?
Perhaps they author ezine articles like this one. Or maybe you've seen banner advertisements for their product on a web-based e-mail site, or at an internet resource center that you've visited. Maybe you've seen their ads on a classifieds page. Alternately, some web site business owners may invite a well-regarded internet entrepreneur to test a product or service that they offer. Then they will quote their testimonial. This tactic may boost sales and heighten repuation of all parties involved.
