You SAY you want to achieve online success, right? But, with all due respect, how do you expect to pull this off when you're making so many mistakes? I mean, this is real life, folks, not just another edition of "Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour"!
So, let's get SERIOUS, shall we?
You're Trying To Make Money Online W/ THAT Website?
The number of self-defeating websites is staggering. What's really pathetic is that real people are trying to make real money with them. They never will, of course, and will no doubt blame Internet for failing them when it's their own darned fault no one's knockin' at door.
Now go to http://www.trafficcenter.com/properties
These are professionally designed sites which are ready for you to move into NOW -- NO WAITING!
Then look again, closely, at your site.
Here are some of things you're very likely to see that are dragging you down:
1) your site isn't trying as hard as possible to capture prospect's follow-up information, including all-important e-mail address
2) your site doesn't start out with a strong, in-your- face flash graphics presentation that puts you in immediate contact with your prospect.
3) your site doesn't make motivating offers.
4) your site is jumbled, without clear focus; you're not guiding prospect to do what you want her to do.
These are all problems which destroy your ability to profit online.
You're Trying To Make Money Online Selling THAT?
Take a look at what you're selling. Is there any VALUE to it? As I write, we're in a period of massive economic uncertainty and confusion in all world's leading economies, including Europe, Japan, and United States.
What do people do in such conditions? THEY GET VERY, VERY CAUTIOUS.
Thus, if you want to profit in a downturn, you'd damn well better focus on presenting VALUE.
People always want VALUE, of course, but when times are good, they get slack. They buy whatever takes their fancy; they're less questioning, less critical, more laid back.
However, when times are troubling, they start asking tougher questions which all emanate from one central question: is it worth money?
By this standard, a significant percentage of online "businesses" are a joke. Look at one site after another and ask yourself one question, "Where's VALUE here?"
Sites packed with cheap affiliate and MLM programs are doomed! Sites focusing on low priced products and services for "little guys" will crash! Sites that feel (and look) like "get rich quick" schemes never make it.
If you do not sell VALUE, you're just asking to flush your business down toilet.
You're Trying To Achieve Online Success With THAT?
To succeed online, you need certain tools, including
* your own domain * a listserver, so you can reach all your prospects, customers, and subscribers with touch of one button * a sales manager, so you can automatically, personally follow up every single prospect you've got * professional website design, because way you present what you're selling is too important to be left to amateurs * guaranteed traffic.
How many of these tools do YOU have? Yeah, I thought so. You're trying to build Hoover Dam with a teaspoon and a rake. Get serious!
Now go back to http://www.trafficcenter.com/properties
Each and every one of e-properties you're looking at has all tools you need to succeed online.
You are not going to succeed online without right tools. Every day you try to make it without them you're just fooling yourself. It can't be done. If you keep trying to succeed online without tools you need, you're just proving that you're a fool.
You're Trying To Succeed Online With THAT "marketing"?
The Internet is a marketer's paradise -- but only if you know how to market.
Millions of people are discovering, to their chagrin and disappointment, that marketing means more than posting a site, running a few free classified ads, trading some free links, and waiting to hire Brink's truck to run their millions to bank.
In fact, this Great Age of Marketing, is proving to be Biggest Age of Marketing Disappointment to vast majority of people online.
I, for one, am NOT sympathetic to this problem.
People like you go online without any copywriting skills and try to write copy. It fails, miserably -- but predictably. Copywriting is a profession. You have to study what it takes to succeed. Yet vast majority of online "marketers," suffering from that fatal mixture of hubris and stupidity go merrily forward, only to fall flat. Humbly, I suggest they study my best-selling book "Cash Copy: How To Offer Your Products And Services So Your Prospects Buy Them... NOW!"
