scams and web promotion
What works and what doesn't work in web
If you're just starting up your internet
business, you will have to spend a lot of time just to learn
about promoting your web site. One of the most important lessons
to learn is how you can quickly spot the scams and the marketing
Here is the first example:
Increase your traffic, submit your site to
thousands of search engines and directories.
- Never pay for such promotions.
- If you really want to try out one of these
services, you will find many sites that will do it for
free or just to get your email address. Others, will
insist on a return link and your email address. Just make sure you follow my advice in the
next section first.
- You will receive hundreds of junk emails.
- Before you get involved with these
automatic submission services, get a new email address
from one of the free email providers. If you give them
that email address you can track down what other people
do with it, and discard this email address again at a
later stage. If you do not get hundreds of emails, you
did not get submitted to those hundreds of search
- You won't get much traffic
- There are probably less than fifty
directories and search engines that will generate any
real traffic. Most Free For All Link sites are set up to
catch email addresses and you will be lucky if you get
more than a single visitor from any of them. I have
submitted my sites several times and received more junk
mail than visitors.
- Major traffic comes from major search
engines and directories only
- If you can get into Yahoo you've got it
made. Getting a good ranking on search engines like
Altavista and Infoseek is more important than anything
else. Concentrate on the major players in this field and
learn how they decide if you get listed.
- Many major sites will want you to submit
- If you use automatic submission services
they might just ignore you. If you are unlucky, they may
consider you a spammer and black list your site. So, keep
track of when you submitted to the main search engines
and don't use any services that won't allow you to
disable submission to search engines.
- Find one of the many good sites with free
search engine information and tips.
- I hope you consider this site one of them,
but there are others as well. Again no need to pay for
good information, although you might want to consider
paying for a good consultant.
$*** of Special Reports on how to promote your
web site for only $** .
- No need to pay for any Special Reports
- Whether it is a special report to improve
your web promotion or a course to improve your Internet
marketing, you will most likely not receive any real
value for your money. Unless you know someone else who
has bought the same special report or course, and is not
getting paid to recommend it to you, I would not part
with my money. I would rather spend it at the races, the
odds are better.
- There are many good reports available for
- Sorry, I have not had the time to generate
a link page yet. But you'll find that many web masters
are willing to give away special reports for you just
visiting their site. Others insist on your email address.
They either politely ask for your email address or they
ask you to email them and then send you their report
using an auto responder. Again a good reason to have a
special free email account for junk emails.
I have earned more than $**** this last month,
I never believed it was possible, but ...
- If they really have earned that much they
probably wouldn't need to bother you.
- They need you to be able
to earn more money. That doesn't necessarily mean you
will make money. You do the work, they get some of the
profit. If they find enough other people willing to work
for a pittance, they'll have a good income. But, most
likely they have just joined themselves and will still be
at the bottom of the pyramid. It's the person one level
higher who is making the money.
- To make money you need a good web site,
with quality content.
- Just investigate the content of their web
site. If the site only consists of a single page, they
won't make money of the web site. They are just
recruiting. Most likely, the page comes from a standard
template and you will find similar sites regularly.
- You will need to work hard to promote your
site and build up your leads.
- If they promise you success with hardly
any effort from your side, they need your money. If they
don't need your time, what else is there they want from
you. Getting a few dollars from a lot of people can make
someone very rich, and most likely that someone will not
Not all Multi Level Marketing scheme's are
- There is nothing wrong with an MLM that
gives you value for your money, even if you do not sign
up any new members in your downline. Just don't believe
it will be easy to make money unless you have a good web
site and good e-marketing skills. If the MLM mainly
advertises the money making features, they probably will
not offer their non-MLM customers anything worthwhile.
Find an MLM that advertises its products first.
Remember that nothing is for free.
Success will only come after a lot of hard work, unless it's a
