Deciphering e-Lingo
"I just used the CSS in my IMS GUI WYSIWYG drag and drop DHTML editor to create a Javascript interactive drop-menu that links to the URL on my ISP host that I got from Internic." I really do know what I am talking about. Do you? The fact is only a few months ago I would have had trouble with a couple of these terms. I have been in this business for a long time and I think I know as much or more than anyone when it comes to computer graphics and the Internet. Even so, if I would have had trouble with a few of these terms a few months ago, I almost certainly would not have known what I was talking about only a few years ago.

3 Hot Traffic Generation Strategies!
1) Make It Worthwhile Make your web site worth revisiting. Give your visitors original content, free e-books, information web site links, free useful software, etc. For example, if thousands of other web sites are pro- moting the same free e-book and that's what you're promoting too, people are likely to have already downloaded it and won't visit your web site.

Don't spend any time thinking about the product.

Then, and only then, do you consider what kind of products or services you might be able to supply to that market. Notice I said "wants" as opposed to their "needs."

The Untapped eBook Market
There's a tremendous market that most if not all ebook authors and publishers are overlooking.

Folks, these people could care less about reading an ebook. This is a fact! Let's look at a few of the reasons that the average printed book reader will not read an ebook.

Beware the Difficult Client
Most clients are a pleasure to work with. The pains in the derriere are also, when you have enough experience to recognize the type. I've listed several "difficult" types below, so that you can arm yourself against them. The major weapon in your armory is THE CONTRACT. Always have a contract, no exceptions. Be especially wary of the prospective client who says: "A contract? This will take you what, an hour? Surely you don't expect a contract for an hour's work?" (See "The Spider" below.)

6 Surefire Ways to Beat the Recession

You might as well just close up shop now. But a downturn in the economy isn't the end of the world. What perpetuates economic dips is the reaction business owners and consumers have to it. People clam up and act like this might be the big one; the end of capitalism as we know it. That attitude is what spawns recession.

Now is the time to quickly plan and take advantage of tax laws to save money on your 2002 return.

Benefits vs. Features: Know the Difference!
Speakers and Coaches know their business. Many of them write useful, inspirational books and have creative Web sites. But, one thing they are not as adept at is promotional copy. It's not the book, it's the hook! It's not the beautiful Web site, it's the one with benefit-driven headlines that lead your visitor straight to your sales message. What you say outside the covers matters. What you say about your service on your site must be so much more powerful than your pleasing personality.

Press One and Go Directly to Voice Mail Jail
For some people “voice mail” means the voice mail menu system—or “voice mail jail.” You know, when you dial the business number and a voice—not a person—answers and says, “Hello, you have reached XYZ Company. Please listen carefully to the following options.” At this point, you grit your teeth and prepare for an ordeal. After listening to all the choices, you discover that none of them suits your needs. Several different can reactions occur. You might feel stupid that you can’t figure out what number to press. Or you might get annoyed that you have to go through the list again, wasting precious time and money.

Prepare Your Business For Your Ultimate Customer
Most business entrepreneurs would rather be in the driver's seat than to be driven. Yet, surprisingly enough, many business owners put little effort into planning to sell to their biggest and ultimate customer... the person (or company) that buys their business. I've seen genuine hardworking people struggle and persevere to build up a successful business, only to watch them fail to reap their deserved rewards when they come to cash-out. They don't know what to do, or where to go. They lack the required skills to present their business effectively to potential buyers. The end result; they get stressed-out and bitterly disappointed with the outcome.

Holiday Action Keeps Shopping Season Sweet
Usually, U.S. retailers earn 20-80% of their entire yearly gross during the holiday season. But this year, things are different. The sluggish US economy has prompted Deloitte Research's Carl Steidtmann to fear "the worst Christmas ever" in the retail sector. Short of going door to door in a Santa suit, how can businesses increase profits and prevent a blue Christmas? Despite economic gloom, industry leaders have found that an e-mail follow up strategy can increase sales by a cheery 35%! To weather the ailing economy, use a follow up autoresponder during your holiday campaigns.

7 Ways To Magnify Your Profits
1. Segment Customer Lists. Carefully analyze past buying behavior or your customers and categorize by their buying habits. Basically you will be slicing and dicing your database list. Discounts may motivate your customers better than premiums, vice versa for others. Study your list and break it down to create special offers for different customer groups.
