Advertise Advertise Advertise

Yes, it is that simple. The ONLY way for a business to succeed anywhere is to Advertise, Advertise, Advertise.

How can anyone start a business and think that it will take off on it's own. It doesn't work that way. A website is mandatory, but don't ever think that because you tookrepparttar 101155 time to make a website that is all you need to do.

How will people find you? Search engines just don't cut it anymore. You need more than that. So, it is time to getrepparttar 101156 word out and make something of your business. If you have a dream of a successful business and being your own boss, this takes work and a lot of it.

So, invest your hard earned money in some real advertising campaigns, and start turning some profits for your business. Yes, I mean you will have to part with some of your hard earned money. I know it is not fun, but it is necessary. I know to many people who are struggling to make a success of their business online. I ask these people where they advertise, and all I hear is:

Free Classified Ad Sites FFA Links Search Engines Message Boards

Why, these are all FREE! Can't do better than that, right? WRONG!!! When you advertise in FFA Links, Free Classified ad sites, and message boards, you are becoming an ultimate target for SPAM, and that is it. The only people who will read your message are spammers. You may get one or two hits and maybe even a sale every once in a great while, but you will NEVER profit from your business.

Search engines are mandatory, but they are notrepparttar 101157 KEY to a successful business. The most successful form of advertising is in online Ezines and Newsletters. I personally have tried many forms of advertising and I find this isrepparttar 101158 most effective, and it is not that expensive at all. Many successful businesses will agree. Now, of course there is local advertising and such, but our eyes are set onrepparttar 101159 internet. WHY? We are talking about advertising onrepparttar 101160 world wide web, which has millions and millions of viewers all overrepparttar 101161 world. The possibilities are endless.

Email vs. The Web

What Works Best for Selling Online? Email or Web Pages?

Good question right? I always thought so! That is until I went through my little learning curve. I can save you fromrepparttar same lessons if you have a few moments...

You see, I do a ton of classified advertising onrepparttar 101151 net. I utilize ezines, AOL, newsgroups (carefully thru my sig), and many web sites. I also use targeted direct email although I'm extremely picky in this area.

So why is it that all everyone talks about is banner ads? Click throughs, CPM, page impressions, etc.., . How aboutrepparttar 101152 folks like me that can't afford to slam down a few thousand bucks each month to have my banner pop up on Yahoo every time someone types "Internet Marketing".

Now don't get me wrong here, banners are great and I rely on banners to drive traffic to my site too. Butrepparttar 101153 fact is, a large part of my marketing campaign revolves around simple effective classifieds and I am not alone. It's cheap and it works.

That's why I've decided to pass alongrepparttar 101154 results of my "research" as I like to call it. (Learning curve is a little more honest!)

My question was this: Should I be using my URL, or my email address when advertising with classifieds and direct email?

Before my web site existed it was pretty much a no brainer. I used my email address in my classifieds until I smartened up and got some autoresponders. AR's made much more sense for two simple reasons: They allowed me to do MUCH less work and my prospects received my sales letters almost instantly, which always results in more profits.

Then I finally migrated torepparttar 101155 World Wide Web and had a URL to use in my classifieds. I immediately "upgraded" my ads to allow people to find my new web site. (Maybe I was a little too proud of it!) I figured why bother with autoresponders any longer when I could show them color, sound, and graphics.
