Three Steps To Success
by Larry Johnson
Your site is now up and running and you're
trying to figure out just how to let others
know about it. How do you create a wave
of traffic to it ?
Here are three simple steps that anyone who
is really serious about marketing and selling
online must do to be successful:
1) Get your own domain name.
A virtual domain name is a virtual necessity
when trying to promote and market your site and
it's products and services.
Which would you more likely take as a serious
webmaster who could be trusted to do business
It's pretty clear, right? The site with the virtual
domain name is the pick of the litter everytime.
I hardly every visit, or take seriously, those sites
The cost for a virtual domain name is a drop in
the bucket for two years of potential income from
a good producing site.
2) Create and market your own product or service.
This is one that may cause you to lay awake at
nights for a while. Coming up with a unique
service or procuct that fills a niche market is a
challenge, but not one that can't be overcome.
Too many want-to-be webmasters are too easily
guiled into the "affiliate" trap. It's easy, the
sights are created instantly, and they look great.
(for the most part) .
The point here is that you are probably not going
to make very much selling the other guys product
or service. Get your own ! Then promote it for
all that it's worth.
Which brings us to the question: "How do I promote
my site ?" Well, there are lots of easy, quick
answers for that online. Most of them don't
work. Here is one that does.
3) Develop your own Newsletter or E-zine.
It's work, that is for certain, but the rewards are
great. It is also an income-producing type of
promotion that can not be equaled online.
As your number of subscribers grow, so does
the value of your publication. Charging for
ads is just one of the ways you are certain to
experience as you climb the ladder of success.
Following these three simple steps will give
you a headstart on those who take the easy,
Discipline your self to do a little each
day, and you will soon be one of the few who
can claim success online.
