WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW?Written by Pamela Geiss
What's really important to know about doing business on Internet? Everyone claims to have THE answer to pot of gold. How do you know who and what to believe?
Use your common sense. Everyone wants easy way out. All someone has to do is slap up a pretty website and tell you you can make money in your sleep, and you jump on it like bees on honey!
In same way, you build your downlines figuring everyone else will do their part selling and you can sit back and deposit checks.
WAKE UP! Life isn't like that! Business isn't like that! Business is hard work. If you don't want to work hard, you're not going to make it!
Who can you depend on to bring you success on Internet? The answer is YOU! You are only one who cares 100% that you are successful. You are only one who is willing to put in time and effort it takes to be succesful. You are also only one who can keep it from happening!
So what do you need to do? Take advantage of EVERY type of advertising you can find and think of. Free and paid. Get your own website. Exchange links. Write articles. Do an e-book. Start an ezine. Join forums. Use your imagination - think of new ways to get your message out. Who knows - you just may come up with something that takes off!
Are You Realistic or Unrealistic?Written by Pamela Geiss
Are you realisitc or unrealistic about advertising on Internet? When you purchase advertising, are you realistic in your expectations?
I recently wrote an article entitled "The Age of Now". My purpose was to point out that everyone seems to expect everything NOW. This seems to hold true in advertising also.
For example, I specialize in sending targeted traffic to websites. Customers will come in and order 1,000 visitors. If they don't get any sales, their first reaction is, "Well, this doesn't work. I won't do that again." How realistic is this thinking? Not realistic at all! Why? First of all, 1,000 visitors, 5,000 visitors, 10,000 visitors are all "drops in a bucket" when it comes to millions of people that are currently online. The more visitors you get, more people you are reaching. When you order 1,000 visitors, you are assuming that those 1,000 people think way everybody else online thinks. You are assuming that if they aren't interested, neither will next 1,000 or 5,000 or 10,000 be interested. That's same principle as putting one ad in a newspaper and stopping after that.
