    How to Avoid Program-Itis
    by Terri Seymour

    Copyright 2001 Terri Seymour

    When people first come online to start or build a
    business a lot of them catch a very common Internet
    disease that I will refer to as Program-Itis. I also
    fell victim to this disease. What happens is the bug
    hits you and you begin to believe that you have to
    join every program on the net in order to make money.
    Let me tell you that this is not true.

    There are programs for selling products of all kinds,
    programs for getting subscribers or free traffic,
    programs for promotion and just about every other
    kind of program you can think of. There are some good
    ones out there and you need to sift through the rest to
    find them.

    Some of the things you can keep in mind when it comes
    to joining programs are:

    Check out all programs thoroughly. Make sure the
    program is set up so it will actually benefit you not
    just the founder of the program.

    Ask more experienced netpreneurs for opinions. Visit
    message boards and join discussion lists to learn
    from others. People are very willing to help, share
    and advise you when you ask.

    Choose a few exceptional programs to promote.
    Keep in mind that if you join too many programs
    it will be hard to actively promote all of them.
    Promoting a few very good programs will be much
    more effective.

    Choose programs that compliment your business/website.
    If you have a website that deals with home repair, do not
    sell products about health or other unrelated subjects.
    People will come to your site to learn about home repair,
    so deal with those types of products/services.

    I also suggest you try the product/program you are
    selling or advertising. If people have questions or
    comments about the product you will be prepared
    to answer. You can also give the product/program
    your personal recommendation.

    Join in joint ventures and programs with people you
    already know and trust. If a trusted associate gives
    the program a personal recommendation, it usually will
    be a good one, but check it out anyway to see if it is
    something you would want to be a part of. I have
    received several invitations from associates for joint
    ventures and I find that these are the ones that work
    out the best and are most successful.

    Experiment with similar programs. A lot of the same
    types of programs exist out there and some may work
    better than others. If you are not sure, try them and find
    which ones are best for you. You can always leave the
    ones that don't work out.

    I hope some of these tips will help you rid yourself
    of Program-Itis and keep it down to a few of the most
    effective ones. Different people like different
    programs so you will not always agree with others on
    which ones are most successful. Choose the ones
    that work for you!
