"Suggestions For The Beginning Marketer" (C)janes-place

I want to share with you some ofrepparttar things that I have learned onrepparttar 102052 internet. Unfortunately, I am hard-headed. I get an idea and I want to do it MY way. Sometimes that can be good, sometimes it's not so good.

When I was trying to get my website onrepparttar 102053 internet, some well-meaning people suggested that I get a free site and try out some of my ideas before going torepparttar 102054 expense of putting up my own website. Well, I signed up for a couple of free sites and tried outrepparttar 102055 control panel. I found that I was so restricted, that I decided not to do it that way. I went back to my way.

If I had it to do all over again, I would have usedrepparttar 102056 free site to find out which direction I really wanted to go in. Userepparttar 102057 free site as a "tester". I'm not telling you to stay with a free site. The reason I say use it as a "tester", is because I started janes-place out as one type of site, but found that I changed it as time went on, in order to satisfy my visitors. If you don't satisfy your visitors, they "won't" come back!

Userepparttar 102058 free site and add different pages. Find out what your visitors are interested in, then you can go torepparttar 102059 expense of purchasing a domain name, getting a host and allrepparttar 102060 other things for your website. You will also learn a lot about marketing and find out what worksrepparttar 102061 best for you and your "audience".

My host offers free sites and you can get one at: http://www.linkopp.com/banners/cgi-bin/refer.cgi?JF22091 If you get a free site through my host, I am familiar withrepparttar 102062 control panel and will help you out, if you need it.

Another suggestion that was made to me inrepparttar 102063 beginning, was to find a "niche". My thinking on this was, if I offered 'Something For Everyone, Even Uncle Elmer', I would be able to attract more people and give my visitors variety. Take it from me. That may work for WalMart, but it doesn't work onrepparttar 102064 internet. You will do a lot better, if you find your 'niche' market. Let's look at this example: You are interested in a site for women. Ok, women are your 'audience'. What type of women do you want to reach? Narrow it down. Let's say that you decide to go with crafts. Narrow it down even further. Let's say that you have been crocheting for some time and you enjoy crocheting. Ok, let's use that. So far, we have decided that we want to reach women that like to crochet. Let's narrow that down a little more, to women that want to learn how to crochet.
