    Building Your Business with FREE Tutorials
    by Terri Seymour


    copyright 2001 Terri Seymour


    If you have an online business, no matter what it
    pertains to, a great way to promote yourself and your
    business is by sharing your knowledge. One way of
    doing this is be preparing free tutorials for people
    to read and learn from. By doing this, people will
    come to think of you as an expert in your field.
    When they need advice, products or services, you will
    be the one they trust and believe.

    Divide your tutorial into four or five (or however many
    it takes) steps; then set them up at an autoresponder.
    If you sell home decorating items, you could set up a
    tutorial to paint a piece of furniture in this manner:

    Step 1 - Preparing the Piece
    Step 2 - Choosing the Right Paint
    Step 3 - Painting the Piece
    Step 4 - Maintenance

    After you divide these into steps, set it up at the
    autoresponder for the each step to be sent out two or
    three days apart. This works better than one complete
    mailing because it keeps your name and business in the
    mind of the prospective customer longer and he will be
    more likely to buy your products.

    Free Autoresponders:

    http://newbieclub.com/cgi-bin/sgx/d.cgi?ottofree-web_success
    http://www.sendfree.com/
    http://www.aweber.com/

    Have a look at these and decide which you prefer. If
    you don't like any of these, there are plenty more.


    When you set up your tutorials at the autoresponder,
    don't forget to put a couple points of interest about
    your site/business. You also want to make sure you
    have a little thank you note preceding the tutorial.
    Introduce yourself, say thank you and encourage the
    prospect to ask questions or visit your site for more
    information. This will help to build a relationship
    with the customer and to build your reputation also.

    After everything is set-up, the next step is promoting
    your tutorials. This you would do in the same way as
    promoting other things.
