Holiday/vacation time but what about your online business?

For many of us, it is time to start thinking about packing our suitcases and jetting off on our summer holidays/vacation.

Automating your customer support…

My regular readers will know that one of the things I highly recommend doing with any online business is automating as many of your day to day tasks as possible.

Be Realistic When Selling on eBay….

As some of you know, I spent many years buying and selling both on and offline and several of my products are based upon my own experience in this area.

How to publish an eBook without writing a word…..

There are many, many advantages to selling eBooks online, not least the fact that once the eBook is written, the sales and delivery process can be automated so that as the seller, there is literally nothing for you to do when you make a sale. To illustrate this point, I have sold over 15,000 copies of my most popular eBooks since I first wrote them but other than carrying out an update every few months, these products now don’t involve me in any work whatsoever.

A Day in the Life of an Internet Marketer….

I have been working on the Internet since 1998 and I often get emails from people that think that working online is an ‘easy ride’ and won’t involve them in much work. Don’t get me wrong, working online doesn’t have to be hard and it is possible to earn a good income for a few hours work each day. If you want the BIG rewards however, you are going to have to put a bit more effort in…..

How to Increase Your Profits by 40% or More with no Extra Work!

Before I expand on the above heading, I do have a slight confession to make – you will have to do ‘some’ work for this process to work but I promise it really isn’t much and the long-term benefits can be absolutely incredible :-)

At last, the Real Secret of Internet Marketing…

I am going to share a real secret with you this week. A secret that can be summarized in two words. A secret that ALL successful Internet marketers know and apply. A secret that really is the difference between the success and failure of your online business. Sounds pretty important huh?

Forums – Why You Might Want One and How to Get One…

Several people have asked me about setting up a forum on their website recently, so I thought it might be helpful to cover this topic for the benefit of all my readers.

The Internet – a numbers game….

If you take a close look at this ‘working online’ business, you will see that it is quite simply a numbers game (this is actually the case with most if not all businesses).

Selling online? Get ready to meet these guys (and girls!)…

If you are thinking about starting an online business, I need to warn you about some of the people that you are going to ‘meet’. Once you have a website or any form of online presence, these people will seek you out – I guarantee it!

Automate, Automate, Automate

The key to running a successful and efficient online business is to automate as much of your work as possible:

Selling Your Online Business

I was fortunate enough to spend a weekend in Monte Carlo recently and being surrounded by the luxury yachts and other symbols of extreme wealth got me thinking about retirement.

Google Page Rank – Important or Just Another Number?

Before, I wrote about how your website’s Alexa rating is not actually that important to the success of your online business. Now, I want to look at another popular statistic – Google Page Rank – and ask a similar question – is it that important?

Your Alexa Rating – is it Really That Important?

A discussion in my forum has prompted this newsletter as I think it is important for any online entrepreneur to understand how Alexa ratings work in order that they can understand why they may not be that important to the success of their online business.

Ordinary product + Added value = Increased Profits!

Everyone that wants to get started buying and selling (either online or offline) is trying to find that ‘bargain buy’ – something whose wholesale price is 50% less than the standard retail price. It is possible to find such products but they are rare and as soon as one person starts selling the item, others will jump on the bandwagon and force the price down.

If you have spent any time at all studying Internet marketing, then you are bound to have come across the term ‘viral marketing’.

We all know that the best way of getting quality, free traffic is by achieving a first page ranking on one of the main search engines. For the past few years, Google has held the position of being the most popular and probably the best search engine there is and as such, this is the search engine that everyone wants their site listed on.
