You probably know by now that Get Rich Quick Programs are a dime a dozen! ( At least I hope you do!) At 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 toward 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 is 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 with 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 need "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 in long run. ( If you want to know more details, you are welcome to contact me at address below!)

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! Keep content fresh, useful and informative. ( Here comes searching and researching again!) d. Find other sites and/or newsletters that will trade links or ads with you .( More searching and researching!)
