Knowledge is Power! These are among the best newsletters
for improving your website and your business. I suggest you check them out and maybe even subscribe to one or two.
If you are in business today, chances are you have a
website. If you do not, you really need to examine why.
The most common reasons I hear, as a veteran web consultant,
can't afford it
don't think I need one
am know I need one, but I don't know where to start
had one, but it failed and I gave it up
All of these excuses stem from not knowing how to be
successful on the Internet. What's the first step to success? Knowledge! You,
as a business owner, sales person or other professional, need to learn what you
can about the Internet, how it works and how to market through it, in a
cost-efficient way. It's not about only free marketing, but strategic use of the Internet as a part
of your business success plan.
If you wish to improve your website's return on investment,
and add to your bottom line, it is possible to learn from established and
credible sources, most of the time for free. Well, at the very least it would
cost you is your email address.
If you want to receive solid business information to make
you more competitive and profitable, I suggest you subscribe to the following
