Dot-Com Will Always be King
The new domains are coming! "Dot-biz is going to be the next coming of dot-com," I recently read in an article in the Denver Post. The buzz has begun. Seven new top-level domains have been approved by ICANN, the organization that governs domains, and could be available as early as spring of this year. The new domains approved are .biz, .info, .aero, .coop, .museum, .pro, and .name. Pre-registration sites like PreRegisterYourDomains.com have already begun taking applications claiming that "Three million domain names will be registered in the first five minutes." That same Denver Post article later says, "If predictions from analysts hold true -- dot-biz will rival the popularity of dot-com -- startups will no longer have to settle for second-tier domain names." Hogwash! -- To put it gently. Dot-com will always be the supreme ruler of domain names. Here's why:

Two New Advertising Options
Paid-placement search engine listings, like those at Goto.com, are great for effective, targeted and low-cost traffic for your website. That's why so many people are using them, driving up prices of even obscure terms in bidding. Google's Self-Service Advertising System, called "Google AdWords," and the "Jeeves Text Sponsorship Network" are two similar services you should add to your list of places to advertise.

Creating an Effective Business Web Site
You registered your domain and have a hosting company park it for you, now what? Now you need to have your Web site designed. Designing your site to attract business and make money is very tricky. You have to create the site to please the visitor. There is one thing to keep foremost in your mind when creating your site - the visitor will ask "What’s in it for me?" You have to provide that answer immediately, or they will just leave. This may be done in the first line or first few paragraphs, but you have to bring it to their attention. They have to know what you can do for them. This has to be done on every page or your site is a hopeless cause.

Don't Get Taken by a Fake Distributor
When you're a small business starting out on the Internet, or even when you're an established 'Net business, you need Drop Shippers. Why? Because working with drop shippers eliminates the need for you to carry expensive inventories. You don't have to rent a warehouse, hire employees, establish accounts with UPS and FedEx, etc. You can sell the best brand names on earth from your home computer, and make good money at it. Distributors who drop ship send the products you sell directly from their warehouse to your customer, with your business name on it. All you do it take the order from your customer and pass it to the distributor. You keep the difference between the wholesale price the distributor charges you, and the retail price you sell to your customer for.

Federal Taxes for The Small Business Owner
If you are the sole proprietor of a small business, you probably groan at the mention of the phrase "federal taxes." Unfortunately, the only two certainties in life are death and taxes, so if you're a small business owner, federal taxes are an unpleasant fact that can't be avoided. Understanding your responsibilities is the first step toward minimizing your federal tax burden, financially and psychologically. Your tax burden includes taxes based on your net profit, social security taxes, and federal withholding, as well as unemployment taxes.

Benefits of using Java Development for Embedded Computing, part 3
Executing Code from ROM Desktop JVMs usually can't execute Java code directly from ROM. Normally, Java classes are first loaded into RAM, verified, and then executed by the JVM. This approach is impractical for many embedded systems because it increases the use of expensive RAM beyond the cost constraints of the embedded system.

What is Drop Shipping?
To understand Drop Shipping, we should first understand product distribution. People have been distributing products since before the first mastodon skinner traded a fur coat for a flint axe. Here's how it works. Let's say ABC Manufacturers makes a product called Mom's Ankle Wax. We'll say that Mom's Ankle Wax has been around for years. It's a very well known brand name product. It will without a doubt give you the shiniest ankles on your block, and everybody wants some.

How to Focus on Your Internet Business
If you've been in a home based Internet business even a short time, you've probably discovered that it's not time to give up your day job just yet. You haven't come into those millions you've heard others have so quickly amassed in cyber space. Of course, you'd love nothing other than to be free of that 9 to 5 leg iron so you can work your business as much as you want. Well, knowing that's not going to happen overnight, it's time to learn how to live in both worlds without going bonkers in the process.

16 Reasons Why The Next Site I Visit Could Be Yours
You spend so much time promoting YOUR site, but why, exactly, do YOU VISIT someone else's? The other day, I re-visited all of the sites I had been to that week (using Internet Explorer's History option). I asked myself the simple question: "Why did I visit that site?" I came up with 21, yes 21!, reasons why I visited a particular web site. Now if they are reasons why *I* visited a site, they could well be reasons why I (or someone else) would visit YOUR site!

"Free sites do not build trust and credibility." Yea and neither do sites with a registered domain name.
When ever I see the statement "Free sites do not build trust and credibility." It makes me ask, "What hosting service is this person promoting?"

Where Do You Want To Go?
Cheshire-Puss,"... said Alice, "would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where---" Said Alice. "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. "---so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough." -- Lewis Carroll, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"--

The Dilemma of Shipping and Handling
In the middle of last year (June 2001), Amazon.com made headlines by announcing that they were going to offer free shipping and handling for any purchases over $99. Is this a trend for the future? Maybe...but only for the rich. While Amazon's offer brought millions of dollars worth of publicity to the company, not too many of us regular ecommerce website owners can afford to offer free shipping and handling. The latest issue of eMarketer's "eCommerce: B2C & Demographics" emphatically states that shipping and handling is a "sizable" business expense. The online metrics company, Jupiter, stated that 45% of ecommerce website owners loose money on shipping and handling.

The Psychology of Color in Marketing Materials
Market researchers have had a field day identifying the colors and the likely effect they have upon us. However, the effects of color differ among different cultures, so the attitudes and preferences of your target audience should be a consideration when you plan your design of any promotional materials. For example, white is the color of death in Chinese culture, but purple represents death in Brazil. Yellow is sacred to the Chinese, but signified sadness in Greece and jealousy in France. In North America, green is typically associated with jealousy. People from tropical countries respond most favorably to warm colors, people from northern climates prefer the cooler colors.
