How Internet Gurus Are Stealing From You -- This Will Make You Mad!

Everybody knows that increased traffic sells. No matter how wonderful your site, if you can't generate traffic, you can't sell. Most traffic comes through search engines, reciprocal links, banner advertisements, news groups, forum discussions, classified advertisements in high traffic areas, and E-mail campaigns. In addition to this, the Internet Gurus will set up a free web page for you at no cost. They ask you to promote your web page with your money - - announce it to various places on the internet and carry out external internet advertisements. As soon as your customers come, your host will grab them with a very large graphic animation displayed on top of your web page. Usually you get little or no sales because your customers are stolen. So, you think you are getting a free website or free E-mail account from these people? Think again! It's a rip off! The company should be paying you for traffic you deliver to their site. They use a software to scan and strip E-mails from your visitors before you see them, and they market directly to them without your knowledge.

I assure you, Lara Publications has a policy against piracy of customers from our clients -- that's why our logo is at the bottom of your page (except in the case of a book review, where it is important for press identification).

Do you know that each time you visit some websites, they may be dropping cookies in your computer as a reminder to help you return? Some websites are actually collecting information from you, harvesting your E-mail and selling them to bulk E-mail brokers. How many unsolicited E-mail messages have you received?

Shopping Mall Rip-Offs

Another thing people are doing wrong is to get in Shopping Malls on the internet -- it is a waste of time and money! It may work in a real-life mall, but not on the internet. It makes no difference if the mall is getting one million hits a day. What matters is, how many hits do you get in your tiny shop? Shopping Malls are over priced and only making money for the mall owners. We have tested this one very well and interviewed people who lost a lot of money on internet Shopping Malls. Stay away from internet Shopping Malls! Some Shopping Malls are making money, but they are in high traffic areas costing $20,000 - $50,000 a year. Can you afford this and how much sales will justify such a huge waste of money?

The Key To Internet Marketing

The primary key to successful internet marketing is to target your customers. It makes no difference whether you are marketing through classified advertisement, banner or bulletin board campaign, E-mail promotion, reciprocal links, or any other form of internet or external promotion -- you must attract target customers interested in your product or book. If you are successful in doing this, it will bring you large profits. Our booklet: Amazing Secrets Behind Successful Internet Marketing will do this for you -- it teaches step-by-step how to market on the internet for little or nothing.

If you have a business and do not have a website, you may be losing money. Any serious professional who wants to market him or herself needs a website. Journalists and sales agents who are always on the road can't afford not to have a website -- instead of checking answering machines for messages -- check your E-mail messages. Professionals like journalists must have an independent website different from the company's site. Once you are on the company's website your activities are limited and dictated by the company, however, if you have your own website, you have control over your site's contents.

So, in addition to the company's site where your professional credentials are displayed, get your own personal site to market yourself. If you are looking for a new job, or need to do something on the side, your personal site becomes your marketing tool. Utilize this to display your articles and other professional achievements making it much easier for a potential employer to evaluate your qualifications in few minutes. Please visit this site and understand the value of your own personal site
