Offer More Payment Options than your Competition

In order to be successful online, you must provide your customers many quick and easy ways to pay for your goods and services. It is not enough to ask folks to send a money order or check to your house or place of business. You must go further.

To succeed in e-commerce, the following eleven steps are those that every business owner should tackle when developing their new online business:

The 2 Minute Paradigm, Convert 400% More of Your Traffic to Sales

It could be because I am from Oklahoma, but many euphemisms come to mind:

Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your Laptop Battery

The actual life of a laptop battery will vary with computer usage habits. For most users, it is not uncommon to experience differences in battery life, of anywhere from just under one hour to over two hours in each sitting. If you are experiencing shorter battery life cycles, say 10 to 15 minutes, it may not yet be time to order that new battery.

Starting an Ebay Business An Online Business Model that Works


Millions of people are still coming online each year, and many of those people come to the Internet with dreams of making their financial dreams come true.

Within a few years of the release of Mosaic, people began to rush into the Internet space, many of them looking for their instant Internet wealth.

E-Commerce Patent Blackmail – You May Be Next!

To date, the only real impediment to doing business online has been the safety of the consumer’s financial data. In March of 2002, this all changed.

Enter the U.S. Trademark and Patents Office. Over the last few years, the USTPO has shown extreme ignorance of new Internet technologies. The USPTO has approved some of the most ludicrous patents to be presented to them.

In 1997, AltaVista was granted a number of patents on search engine technologies, even though search engine technology had been in use as early as 1989.
