Written by Gail Hornback

You probably know by now thatrepparttar Get Rich Quick Programs are a dime a dozen! ( At least I hope you do!) Atrepparttar 117979 same time,,you're probably also hearing that if you are going to make something of this internet business, it's going to take some work. ( At least I hope you are!) There are always two sides to every story, and this one is no different! You have to decide for yourself which side to believe!

I tend to lean towardrepparttar 117980 second option. But when you hear about this "work", does anyone ever explain in detail what that "work" is exactly?

I can only tell you what I have discovered that it is for me. If you're interested, then please read on! If not, then you can go back to checking out your Get Rich Schemes!!!

1. BUILD YOUR SITE First of all, I will not tell you that it is ABSOLUTELY necessary,( but it is not far from it) that you have your own website. Whatever product or service you are offering, whether it is your own, or you are a rep for someone else, it is always going to be to your advantage to get up your own website. This isrepparttar 117981 beginning of work!

A website that is productive takes almost daily care. Of course, you first need to create it. And there are many avenues for that. (see below) But whether you create it yourself, or have someone else to do it for you, any website takes maintenance. Your site must live and grow and change, or your visitors will not come back. You must keep it updated withrepparttar 117982 latest information, new products, freebies, etc. to meet your visitors' needs. This means spending time searching, and researching. A website is NEVER finished!!!

If you're a beginner, there are some excellent sites that offer site-building utilities for free. These are a great way to get started. They are NOT a great place to stay, though! Get your feet wet and learn. Then move on to a REAL site. I know that for most of us we needrepparttar 117983 "free" stuff to get started. But keep in mind that you really will want to get your own domain name, and get away from free hosting as soon as you can. I know from experience: The free hosting will work against you inrepparttar 117984 long run. ( If you want to know more details, you are welcome to contact me atrepparttar 117985 address below!)

Here are some free site building and hosting resources: http://www.homestead.com http://www.terrashare.com/join/momworks/RK8875545468 http://www.bizland.com/newsite/webhosting/hostin_signup.htm? AffID=1627598&LinkName=newsletter

2. PROMOTE YOUR SITE Now, you're talking WORK! This is where you will spend most of your time, in one way or another. a. Submit your site to as many search engines as possible. Do this once a month b. Write a classified ad about your site, submit it to as many classified ad sites as you can. Some will need to be submitted daily. Others weekly, monthly, etc. c. Create a newsletter that accompanies your site. Publish AT LEAST weekly, if not more often. Submit it to as many ezine directories as you can find. Write a classified ad and submit it along with your site ad! Keeprepparttar 117986 content fresh, useful and informative. ( Here comesrepparttar 117987 searching and researching again!) d. Find other sites and/or newsletters that will trade links or ads with you .( More searching and researching!)

How to Generate Multiple Streams of Revenue from Your Online Business

Written by Marc Goldman

The biggest mistake that people who run an online business make is to rely on only one product or service as their sole source of income. Don't get me wrong, if that one product or service is providing you with allrepparttar income you need or desire, then by all means continue on that path. However, most people who make their living onrepparttar 117978 web do so by maintaining several profitable revenue streams that bring in a steady and dependable flow of income. This does not mean that you have to develop several of your own products and/or services. There are many other ways to find additional sources of income, some are right under your nose. 1. Sell advertising space: If you publish an opt-in newsletter you already have an extremely powerful vehicle for reaching a target market. If you have 1,000+ subscribers you could begin selling advertising space in your publication. As soon as those wishing to targetrepparttar 117979 same market are made aware of your newsletter offers to purchase ad space will begin to flow in. Some newsletters with high circulations (over 15,000 subscribers) bring in anywhere from $1,000-$10,000 a month just from selling ad space in their ezines. TIP - In order to make potential advertisers aware of your newsletter andrepparttar 117980 advertising packages you offer, you should make sure your newsletter is listed inrepparttar 117981 40 or 50 ezine directories available onrepparttar 117982 web. You can also generate a revenue stream by offering banner advertising space on your website. This is one ofrepparttar 117983 easiest types of online advertising to sell. You simply need to install banner ad serving software and provide advertisers with a way to track their ad campaigns and measure their effectiveness. If you do not wish to go throughrepparttar 117984 trouble of setting this up and managing it on your own, you can userepparttar 117985 services of a third party company such as Doubleclick. They specialize in bringing together advertisers and websites offering ad space for sale. 2. Joint Venture: Form strategic joint ventures with other websites or newsletter publishers who offer a non competitive product or service that your audience would be interested in. One ofrepparttar 117986 simplest joint ventures, albeit notrepparttar 117987 only one, is to participate in other peoples affiliate programs and make a personal recommendation of their product/service to your audience and both parties reaprepparttar 117988 benefits. Here are some tips to help you developrepparttar 117989 most effective joint ventures possible: a. Be very selective in what you recommend to your audience (i.e. customers, subscribers and website visitors). If your website is cluttered with banner ads for several different products or you send out solo mailings endorsing a new affiliate program to your subscribers every other day, you decrease your credibility which in turn decreasesrepparttar 117990 effectiveness of your endorsements. This naturally lessens your profit potential. Remember, you always want to maintainrepparttar 117991 trust you've built up with your audience especially since it has been proven to be easier to sell to your existing customers than it is to someone who has never before had dealings with you. Therefore, you must always try to be as selective as possible when forming your joint ventures. Carefully examinerepparttar 117992 affiliate programs and other products and services you endorse to insure that your audience can
