How To Tell
If Email Is Legit Or Spam
Here are a few tricks I use to determine whether a message is spam or not.
10 Essentials to a Successful Online Business There is a lot of advice out there about what to do in order to achieve success online. Here are Ten Essentials that are free or very inexpensive to implement in order to achieve success.
Get Organized I don't know about you, but it's very easy for me to get sidetracked in cyberspace. I go into one site which leads me to other sites that offer valuable information. And the next thing I know a few hours have gone by.
Where Did I File That When was the last time you knew you had an email message or a document in your word processor but couldn't remember where it was filed on your computer? I find myself in this position almost every day and my "find" button has become my best friend.
Are You Overwhelmed? Do you sometimes find yourself with way too much to do and way too little time to do it in and the more you try to do the more behind you seem to get?
Coding Your Advertising Have
you ever received an email message that said "Please send more
information" and you have no idea at all what information the
sender is requesting? Have you wondered where a prospect found out about
you and your product or service, or how a certain ad is performing for
you? Here are some suggestions to help eliminate the "what
information are they requesting" questions and to be able to track your
ads so you can know what ones are working and what ones aren't.
Creating and Using A Signature File The best form of online advertisement is your signature line. A sig line is a few sentences inserted with every email you send out. It is another form of online business card. Most email programs will let you set up a signature of about six lines. Some will allow full messages. Include your URL, a short description, phone number, address, whatever may be relevant.
Is Your Own Domain Name That Important?
How do you know if you really need your own URL? If you
have just a personal page with pictures of your family vacation you
probably don't need your own domain. Or if you are just testing the
waters to see if your product or service will fly on the Internet, you
might not need a domain. However, if you are serious about marketing
your product or service on the Internet and plan to make a long-term
venture of it, I would strongly suggest getting your own domain right
from the start.
Managing Your Email Do you find yourself overwhelmed with email? There have been times when it took me all day to go through my email until I learned a few tricks. I found that a lot of the email I received was spam and had heard that you can use filters for spam. I have decided against using the filters because I found that messages I needed to receive were being filtered out ! Besides it takes just a second to hit the delete button. Now I can just about look at a message and know whether to delete it or not without even opening it.
E-mail Marketing E-Mail
is fast becoming very popular for marketing on the Internet. Being able
to send one message to many addresses at once with very little or no
expenses sounds like the most wonderful way to market a product or
service, doesn't it? WRONG!
Is Your Website A Winner? Marketing on the Internet can be somewhat challenging. Whether you are selling a product or service online or offline you need to market that product or service. Are you marketing your website, but still not getting the sales you would like to receive? Maybe your website is holding you back. Here are a few things to consider to have a winning website:
To Find Sites To Link To
popularity is calculated as the number of websites from which your site
can be reached by a link from another site. Linking from other sites is
one of the best ways of bringing quality visitors to your site
additionally link popularity is increasingly important in Search Engine
Site Logs vs. A Hit Counter
you have a web site you are, no doubt, interested in knowing just how
much traffic your site gets. Many people like the visibility of a hit
counter so they can just go to their site and see how much that little
number has gone up since the last time they checked.
However, this option provides minimal information to determine
how well your site is really performing.
