Add "wow!" to create a buzz!

Community Websites Mean Big Business for You
Lets face it. Marketing is a challenge. You wouldn't be reading this article if promoting your business online was just an easy walk in the park under a warm afternoon sun. The reality of it is that marketing could be called a walk in the park, but the sky is filled with nasty looking storm clouds. While there are millions of "marketing methods," only a few work. Of those few, one of the least known is the concept of seeking customers where they congregate. And customers congregate at Community Websites.

Ego-less Selling: The Greatest Advertising Secret Ever Revealed!
Recently I sat on a plane from Phoenix to Austin. I decided to kill some of the two hour flight by flipping through the online magazines and catalog. You've seen them.

Anybody Wanna Buy From "Ol' Shifty Eyes"?
What makes you trust one person yet not another? I mean "really". Here's how I, a Newbie, see it. What makes one person's "word" believable? Remember that saying, "A person's only as good as his word"? My Dad always said that when I was growing up, and my husband says it to our two sons.

The Anatomy of a Web Site Hosting Offer
Where do you go when you want to build a business website? You can pay a consulting firm to build the site, but you still need to place the code on a web server somewhere on the Internet so that people can reach it. Whether you are a small business owner or a division manager within a corporate environment, your choices for the location of that web server are limited. You can set up your own Internet-connected web server, but you have to manage all aspects of it from the operating system to the pipeline that connects it to the Internet.

Submit site to announce it to the world!
NO, don't bother! It's a waste of time, and you'll probably just receive lots of spam. Instead, submit your site to the major search engines and directories, monitor results, and resubmit only if your site isn't listed yet. (You have worked hard on page content, page title and keyword and description meta tags, haven't you?) Repeat this process for any new content you create.

How To Mind Map Your Business
If you're doing business on the Web, sooner or later you'll probably begin to feel like a juggler trying to keep ten balls flying through the air at the same time. There are just too many elements in yourbusiness plan to keep them all going at once. The solution? For many people the solution would be to make a list of all the key elements in their business plan. But lists are linear and the Mind doesn't think in a linear fashion. The Mind thinks in terms of associations, hierarchy, image, color, form, and pattern. So to organize your ideas and generate new ideas, a Map is much more effective than a list. In fact, at the back of your Mind, you probably already have a vaguely-defined map of your online business. A Mind Map is simply a way of putting that structure down on paper.

Jamaican OverDrive - LCD's in LDC's
OverDrive - an e-commerce, software conversion and e-publishing applications leader - has just expanded an e-book technology centre by adding 200 e-book editors. This happened in Montego Bay, Jamaica - one of the less privileged spots on earth. The centre now provides a vertical e-publishing service - from manuscript editing to conversion to Quark (for POD), Adobe, and MS Reader ebook formats. Thus, it is not confined to the classic sweatshop cum production centre so common in Less Developed Countries (LDC's). It is a full fledged operation with access to cutting edge technology.

3 Exceptional Selling Secrets!
1) TOO MANY CHOICES Sell a few products on your web site instead of selling a large amount of products. Too many choices can overwhelm your visitors and they won't buy. Haven't you ever had too many choices and could not decide? You can always insert a flyer into your product's package to sell your other products. It could direct your customers to a different web page where you sell the other half of your products.

Maybe Women Should Run the Web!
We all know that the idea of business on the web came on with a roar and now lies whimpering and licking its wounds in the safety of the shadows. Who was the enemy? Who or what was it that clawed and scraped the potential of online business so brutally that early enthusiasts are now seen as foolish, wild- eyed dreamers? What brought down an idea that was bigger and more powerful than a raging beast at full roar?
