"Putz, Piddle & Procrastinate with Passion"Written by Judith Tramayne-Barth
Are three P's -- putzing, piddling and procrastinating — giving you an anxiety attack? Well quit hyper-ventilating and use them to your advantage.
You can putz, piddle and procrastinate anytime you want if you do them with passion!
Putz all you want on articles you will be sending to ezines or putting on your web site because more you putz with them, better they'll be. This is called rewriting.
Piddle with your web pages by changing look. Do this often!
If you do, FTP changes up to your ISP or hosting site. It causes search engine robots to come crawling through your site more often. They look for at last time you updated pages. If they see nothing has changed, your site gets tossed into black hole of never-never see again etherland.
Procrastinate reading all your e-mail. Only read and react to email which must be answered immediately. You know ones, they ask specific questions. The others are just fill-ins when you have a spare moment. And, if you find you do not have any spare moments, zap hummers after a week.
Tollbooths On The Information Highway!Written by Sonya Meyers
Information rules on Internet, this is a hard and fast rule that is not likely to change. However, it was once, by and large, a free database for consumers to enjoy at will, but times have changed as they always do. Smart website owners are now realizing just what their hard earned information is worth. Specifically, …cold hard cash. And good news is that consumers are still as interested as they were when it was free. In fact, in some respects they are more interested. The time honored principle still holds true in this fast speed, highly technical age, that what we pay for we tend to appreciate more and we feel, in turn, that it holds more value. Quite frankly it does, simply because if we are being paid we are more likely to share real nitty gritty insider secrets of our own personal mother lode of information.
The fact is that all those years of study, hands on experience, and tried and true wisdom is worth a hefty income when turned into new online community. Communities that cost money to enter. Communities that not only bring together a group of people interested in a common topic but also provide value and insiders secrets that public is dying to know about. So how do you jump on new bandwagon barreling down Information Highway? Start with basics:
Don't follow pack, create your own.
Create a community around something for which you are passionate. Don't think strictly in terms of business. Look at extracurricular activities, hobbies that might be turned into a business if people in your community just had enough knowledge on topic. Think in terms of helping people turn what they love into a full time occupation.
These are elements that will make your online community indispensable. Try to stay away from biz opp mentality simply because it is so fraught with competition. Everyone is jumping on this particularly overloaded wagon which will make getting attention for your subscription website that much more difficult. Think out of box.
Keeping in mind that you are creating a subscription website around a theme that you are already passionate about, it goes to follow that you will have tons of information on topic. Take time to begin organizing your information and ideas for your website into a system that flows smoothly. Visit other subscription websites and get a feel for layout. Decide how much basic information needs to go into site to create a successful launch. Plan to continue adding information on a regular basis to keep community alive and humming. Look past mainstream materials such as magazines and books toward industry trade journals and insider information.
