Internet advertising is now part of the business world. What I mean is it works just like offline businesses in the way that it’s location, location, location, and right now the internet is where people are gathering(over 1/3 of their waking time), but many businesses see advertising on the NET and assign it with little value because it’s not tangible, and they refuse to validate it’s business potential to increase revenue.
When companies start an advertising campaign, they assume it works Continue reading
When building a website using good practices of search engine optimization, it’s important to keep in mind that rules that apply today may not be around later. Providing good standards of SEO will not give you a potential increase on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo, but will also make the content more usable for the website visitor. Learning those good web design practices, and keeping up on the latest SEO standards will show in your website stats and sales conversions. Continue reading
The year was 2005. I searched for software to build a website. There was plenty out on the market like netobjects and such, but I wanted something simple that I could be creative with. I didn’t know any HTML or Search Engine Optimization. A friend of mine found Coffeecup. I would go to their forums and ask what I thought was silly questions about web design, but folks like Adam and Inger never belittled me and everyone was always supportive. Continue reading
Don’t mean to be a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington, but let me first say, if you believe any of the hype on making riches quick, you’re going down the wrong path. If anyone who sold Internet Marketing products or methods and is making money, in most cases will NOT share it->unless that niche has lost it’s revenue potential.
When looking at a company to promote, these are the factors I look for:
- 1- Are they a stable company with a track record?(Always Google and research)
- 2- Do they seem honest(yes, sometimes they don’t pay)? Continue reading
First, let me say as a web professional, I have a very strong sales background connecting with clients including property management, IT, security, and of course desktop PC’s. I learned sales closing and marketing tactics over the years from a wide variety of companies. Some successful, and some not so much. My favorite source for the way I approach clients is not from a new modern model, but from a man who sold pots and pans, Zig Ziglar. In one of his books, he viewed almost everyone he encountered as a client in some capacity Continue reading
Several things are awesome with this web design program, but one of my favorite features that is built in is the search and replace. What’s so special you ask? The search and replace not only will do a S&R for a file, but for an entire directory and sub directories. If you need to brand a site quickly to promote any product, it makes this process 10 times easier and is more accurate then the opensource software I was using previously.

If you look around on the Coffeecup site, or have tried their other programs, you probably realize it’s not like that swreg crap where software doesn’t perform. Their software and support is excellent.
I often see ebooks, articles, ads, saying they have a ‘trick’ that will allow you to be found on the search engines. This is due to the fact that they are emphasizing an area that the search engines use to decide what position to display the information about the site, Continue reading
Too many people do this for an easy buck and don’t treat it for what it is…a business. Affiliate just means nothing these days, and if you are breathing, a human life form(questionable), and can stick your tiny little link into any page by the miracle of copy-paste, you can be an AFFILIATE MARKETER, con-grad-u-damn-lations! This is a business. A tough business. Out of 100 of you that read this, probably only one of you will have any measure of success at all.
If you are in this for the long haul, you are actually in the Promotional Business. Business with a capital B!
