Why Your Talents Alone Arent Getting You Anywhere Online
The bottom line is that there are plenty of really talented people out there who will never be heard from because they don't understand even the most basic principles of marketing. Marketing isn't often taught in Fine Arts courses because the instructors, by nature, are better at teaching the craft than they are at marketing themselves in the craft. Most marketing experts haven't fine tuned their artistic talents enough to have a product worth marketing.
So the good news is that it is easier for a talented artist to learn the principles of excellence in marketing ideas and services than it is for a marketing genius to develop the passion and skill sets needed to produce good and, sometimes, great art....

What You Won't Learn in Business School
We all know the traditional road to the financial freedom of retirement. You go to work, 40, 50 or even 60 or more hours every week for 30 or 40 years. You scrimp and save every penny you can, giving up some of the good things in life while, telling yourself that you are saving for a better day and that you will one day have financial freedom and the time to do what you really want. Then you just hope and pray that your nest egg will be big enough to feather your retirement and help you finally achieve financial freedom.
There is a better way. Let us show you how to retire early - like next year, next month or even next week!...
Avoid a Summer Sales Slump
Did you ever see the movie "Terminator 3" by Arnold Schwarzenegger? Remember when the machines took over the controls and began toterminate society as we know it?
This is exactly how it feels every Summer for many business owners.
As if your computer somehow sneaks in during the middleof the night and takes over by putting a "Closed for the Summer"sign on your business.
You wake up on July 1 wondering where all the customers are.
My business is no different.
I've just learned to expect it every year and I do somethingabout it before I can be sabotaged.
So, when the beginning of June comes around, I start ramping upfor the Summer months to keep business steady and even on theincrease.
And, here's what I do:
1) Find something in your industry that's timely and write anarticle about it....
El Marketing, Das Marketing, Le Marketing
While reviewing site stats, I noticed 18 foreign countries as domain origins. This prompts my curiosity. Should I hone my marketing efforts to serve these visitors effectively in their native tongue? My college age daughter studies French, German, and Spanish simultaneously. The Word "marketing" is an "American" word she informs me; distinguished in Spanish, German, and French with slight nuance. Although my daughter learns conversations in Spanish, German, and French, much more talk is in Chinese.
Despite this fact, Kenji Kitao, a professor of English at Doshisha University in Japan, points out, "English is the major language of news and information...business and government...maritime communication and international air traffic control....
Drive Tons Of Traffic To Your Web Site
If you've got a web site then one of your biggest marketing challenges is how to generate traffic without spending a fortune. Whether you're trying to build your ezine or prospect list or get potential customers to contact you or buy your products or services, getting people to your web site is a must and can be a challenge.
Especially if you don't have a big budget to spend on online marketing, and if you're having a tough time getting your site to show up in the search engine rankings. All of this was (and continues to be!) one of my biggest marketing challenges.
Anyone who knows me will tell you I'm not one to back off from a challenge. In fact, give me one and I'll do whatever it takes to overcome it....
The Myth of Internet Marketing: aka The Golden Carrot
Why am I so mad I could throw my computer right out of my upstairswindow?
Well, I'll tell you. But first I want to tell you who I am.
My name is Cathy Smith and I work at Lake Superior StateUniversity in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan. In the past two yearsthe Governer of our state has cut the state funding for higher education by a whopping 20%. This has resulted in layoffs andjob eliminations at our university.

We used to have a four person office but now thanks to university DOWNSIZING we only have a two person office.
I am one of the "lucky" ones who survived the cuts and still have a job. I not only have my own job but the jobs of the two people in our office who were eliminated....
Truth and Lies
How low can one get? The number of encounters I have had in the few months as a network marketer with liars is astounding. Why do people need to stoop to lying in their attempt to succeed? Do they really believe that they will attract customers by using deceptive means. Hey friends, I've got news for you! You are the ones who have been deceived!
When I placed a single ad with the URL of my newly created autoresponder, I started to receive all sorts of strange emails to that autoresponder address. All of them said they had seen my business ad and bla bla bla. Liars! All I advertised was my autoresponder! So what was going on?
Well, I have a confession to make. About seven years ago, when I first discovered the Internet, and got my first taste of spam, I fell for it, and became a spammer myself....
4 Simple Secrets for Net Marketing Success
Starting an internet based business when you have zero marketing experience is, to say the least, bewildering. I speak from personal experience as I started out with no specialized knowledge. I gradually weaved my way through what seemed like hundreds of sites selling just about everything and tried to resist buying every white elephant that was offered.
In the interim, I purchased my first package which turned out to be of little practical use. While I was doing that, I somehow went off in another direction and bought another "package deal", hardly stopping to think that I did not have the requisite skill and knowledge to make this programme work either.
To cut a direct path through the dense forest, I'll tell you now that I spent much more that I originally intended....
Raising Your Rates Can *Increase* Your Business
How many times have I heard literal horror stories from Internet business startups? Too many times to count! I get emails from those who just simply can't seem to make a living online. They've tried everything (according to them) and are still struggling to make ends meet.
At some point, the "conversation" always turns to price. That's where I find a lot of online business people making their mistakes. The common mindset among Internet business startups is that you have to keep your prices rock-bottom low in order to attract customers.
Nothing could be further from the truth! Raising your rates (in some cases) can actually increase your business. How so? Here are several reasons....
1. People Equate Price With Quality
I'm sure you've heard the expression, "You get what you pay for....
