Tips for Internet Beginners and "Wanna-Be's" =============================================== So, after all those late nights of "surfing" the web you've decided there's a fortune to be made on the Internet and you want "your share of the riches." I agree the World Wide Web (or Internet) is one of the last financial frontiers where the "average" man or woman can compete with big business or major corporations on a more level playing field. But, (and it seems there always is a but!) having only recently entered this arena myself I want to share with you some of the lessons I've learned along the way. 1. First and foremost beware of the "Get Rich Quick Claims." I want to point out that the majority of people doing business on the Internet are honest, helpful, trustworthy folks who are willing to help and share information, tips, strategies, etc. either through their websites, ezines (electronic newsletters), or e-mail correspondence. Unfortunately there are people out there who want nothing more than to part you with your money, so Beware! 2. Learn all you can about marketing products, affiliate/reseller programs (and the people/company offering them), hosting services, promotion, etc. Visit other websites and see what they are doing that is working. Copy their success (no, don't rip-off their ideas just use them as a springboard to inspire you in your own creative thinking!). In short, anything to do with getting your business started from site construction through promotion you will want to know. You do not have to become an expert in every facet but the more you know the better off you'll be. On the Internet the saying "Knowledge is Power" has never been truer. =================================================== Sponsor Message: !!! BOOST YOUR WEBSITE TRAFFIC TO AMAZING LEVELS !!!

Stay within your budget/learn to manage you time. Resist the temptation to spend, spend, and spend. In the beginning you should concentrate on learning all that you can and not worry about buying this or needing that because it's the first hosting service you came across, the newest promotional software, the biggest, greatest, best whatever that's come along. Do your homework and spend your money wisely. Also, learn to manage your time. While in the beginning you may not have 8 hours a day to devote to your business, try to free up some time (the more the better) everyday. If you write down how you spend your day you will be amazed how much "free" time you can find. The biggest step in starting any business is the first one. So go ahead, take the plunge. The Internet is large and getting bigger by the day. It is here to stay and there is room for us all. It is my sincere hope that the information I have shared with you will help in that first important step. Good luck! ------------------------------------------------------------ Financialgateway offers Free Internet Marketing Help, information, software, website promotion, and more to Explode your Business.
