A name can make of break a web site. I am of course talking about a Domain name.

You may think there is nothing to it. Pick a catchy domain name that rolls offrepparttar tongue, check that it is available and if it is go ahead and buy it. It couldn’t be any harder that that can it?

Well, yes it can. Just stop and think for a minute. You have boughtrepparttar 134383 domain name, designed and built a great looking website, and launched it out onto that great world wide web. You have got a great Reciprocal Link Exchange on your site and you have reached a reasonable Google Page Rank.

Then you decide to get an Auto responder to have a mailing list, and that is when your troubles start! Let me tell you my story…

I don’t know if you have heard of Stone Evans –repparttar 134384 Home Biz Guy? He runsrepparttar 134385 Plug in Profit Site. Well I bought into his business. I had to decide on a domain name before he built my website. I choserepparttar 134386 name I though that was quite cool as my name is Martin and my site would be advertising offers.

Part ofrepparttar 134387 Plug in Profit Site is you get your own Auto Responder, filled with a 360 day newsletter ready for when you sign up subscribers. I went ahead and bought a good quality leads package and loaded them into my auto responder.

All was going well. Or so I thought.

After a while, I noticed I was not getting any response from my good quality leads (on average you should expect around 1% sign up atrepparttar 134388 very least). I did some searching around, mainly inrepparttar 134389 Warrior Forum which is part ofrepparttar 134390 membership package ofrepparttar 134391 Plug in Profit Site. There I saw a series of posts onrepparttar 134392 American Anti Spam Laws and repparttar 134393 effects it was having onrepparttar 134394 newsletters.
