Marketing your business on the Internet can lead to increased website visits and increased profits.
But if you market improperly, you can create enemies and even lose your website.
The Internet is full of fly-by-night promoters who claim that they will increase your website's search engine ranking, or that they will advertise your site through "targeted" or "opt-in" bulk email. Let the buyer beware! The major search engines have defenses against the flooding techniques that most of these promoters use, and every "targeted opt-in" bulk email list turns out to be the randomly collected addresses of people who hate junk email "spam".
At best, these promoters will take your money and accomplish nothing that you could not do better and faster yourself.
At worst, "targeted opt-in" email spam will cause your ISP to shut down your website. Your email account, toll-free number, cellphone, and pager will be flooded with complaints, and your every move will be scrutinized by angry technological wizards with way too much time on their hands.
You can market your own business cheaply and effectively without spamming. Read the info at these links to find out time-proven ways to increase your profits. Some of these techniques are obvious. Some of them are downright sneaky. But they all work.
