10 Tips For Writing A Good Ad

1. Publish a picture of yourself in your ad. This will
show people that you're not hiding behind your web
site and you're not afraid to backup your product.

2. List how many famous or respected people have
purchased your product in your ad. These people
should be fairly known by your target audience.

3. Publish the results of any tests your product has
passed in your ad. Your product may have passed
a durability test, safety test, quality test, etc.

4. Publish the results of any positive surveys you've
taken from your customers in your ad. Just survey
your current customers and list the results.

5. List any publications that have written about your
business in your ad. It could be a product review,
on a top ten list, an article, etc.

6. List any related books that you've written in your
ad. When you list a book(s) you've wrote, it gives
you credibility because it shows you're an expert.

7. Have a professional looking web site to publish
your ad on. When people visit your site and it looks
unprofessional, they'll relate that to your product.

8. Publish any endorsements from famous people in
your ad. Some people will think if a famous person,
enjoys your product, so will they.

9. Use a money back guarantee in your ad. This
will remove the risk from your potential customers
and show them that you stand behind your product.

10. Provide testimonials from satisfied customers in
your ad. The testimonials should include specific
and believable results you customers have received.

Build A Successful Business By Staying Connected

Over the course of your business life you'll come in contact with a
number of other business people. They could be lawyers, business
services, suppliers, customers, etc. These people are important to your
business in more ways than one. If you hired them or they bought your
product or service, you can also gain their business knowledge,
experience, ideas, and advice. How do you do this? Stay Connected!
Network! Networking is when two or more different businesses stay in
contact on a regular basis to build and improve each others business.

Consider all the benefits you'll gain from talking to other business

Knowledge or information that you didn't have before
Advice on how to solve a current business problem
Leads to a new business project or opportunity
Joint ventures and cross promotion deals
Learn important skills that you didn't have before
Constructive criticism that improved your business
Brainstorming that sparks a profitable business idea
Encouraging and motivational statements

There are many ways to meet business people. Join business clubs and
associations. Participate in on-line business-related forums, e-mail
discussion groups, and chat rooms. Go to business expos and trade shows.
Use your creativity to come up with even more ideas.

If you have the time, start your own networking group. You could hold
meetings at a local seminar room, at a park , or at your own business
building. If you want to hold meetings on-line use a private chat room.
Publish a print or e-mail newsletter to keep members informed of meeting
time and dates.

Keep all your business associates' contact information all in one
place. Have it organized by business type or profession for easy
finding. So when you need some advice on a new marketing campaign you
can call that marketing expert you met at that trade show in Ohio a
couple of weeks ago.

Networking is a surefire way to build a successful business. I have
used it countless times and will continue too. I have also met a lot of
business people who are now some of my closest friends.

Advantages of E-books

An e-book is the digital media equivalent of a normal book and can be read on personal computers. There are thousands free on the internet, and you can buy thousands more, usually cheaper than in a book shop

Buying e-books through the internet is just like buying any other online item and you can purchase them 24/7. You will either be directed to a download page or receive the download link in an email after you pay. You do not have to be connected to the internet to read an e-book after you have downloaded it.

The advantages of e-books are they are eco friendly, you dont have to cut down trees, they are easier to buy than books and you can have your e-book immediately after you buy. They also take up less space, you can store thousands of them in your computer. Information in e-books is searchable, and you can print e-books if you want to the old way.

Smiling is Infectious

Smiling is infectious; you can catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too

I passed around a corner and someone saw my grin

When he smiled I realised Iʼd passed it on to him

I though about that smile then realised itʼs worth

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth

So when you feel a smile begin donʼt leave it undetected

Letʼs start an epidemic quick and get the world infected!

Give E-Books Away

Many people don't have the time or skills to write and create ebooks to give away to their web site visitors. Giving away ebooks from your web site can easily increase traffic and sales. Why not create promotional ebooks for other people touse so they can promote their web site. First, you will need to write and create your own ebook to give away to your visitors. If you don't want to write one, you could ask permission to use another writers' articles or material. Be sure to include your text or banner at the beginning of the ebook. Once your ebook is uploaded to your web site you can allow people to download it and give it away to their web site visitors. Your ad will continue to be spread all over the internet. You can take this strategy one step further to make it even more powerful. Allow people to sign-up to get a version of the ebook with their own text or banner ad included in it.

Low Cost Ways To Make Money Online

Many people searching for ways to make money online do not have money to spend to get started. This is all right because there are several ways you can earn money online without investing too much up front.

In this article we want to go over 4 ways you can earn money online for very little money or no money to get started!

1. Without a doubt the most popular way people start earning money online for free is to become an affiliate marketer. There are affiliate companies in almost any niche you can think of that will let you join for free.

I would classify this as a low cost way to earn money online because you can begin making money almost immediately. You do this by selling products on your company provided website.

You can also develop a long term income by building a downline of distributors. Depending on the type of MLM business you join you can build a worldwide network very quickly.

3. I have recently taken a close look at data entry jobs and taking paid surveys online. Both of these are proven ways to earn money on the Internet.

It is worth it to spend a few dollars to get the training that comes with the program you are doing. Very rarely will you be hired by a company to do this type of work.

However you can take online paid surveys and type data and earn commissions for the work you do. There are many people earning extra money online and spending nothing more than their time once they've gotten started.

4. Blog writing is a great way to earn money on the Internet and you can get started for free. A good way to do that is to set up your own blog at and write content for it.

Then use that content as samples of your work to get paid jobs as a blog writer. This can turn into a full time income if you enjoy it!

These are 4 different examples of low cost ways to earn money online. We could certainly write many more, but the key thing to understand is not having money to get started does not have to stop you from earning money on the internet.

“Do the things you fear, and the death of fear is certain.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t quit

Life is queer with its twists and turns
As everyone of us at sometimes learns
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out
Don’t give up through the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow

Often the goal is nearer than it seems
To a faint and faltering man
Often the struggle has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup
When he learned too late when the night came
How close he was to the golden crown

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems afar
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worse that you mustn’t quite
