Setting up your ecommerce site was no simple process, but in creating a successful ecommerce business, setting up the site is only the first step. Promoting your ecommerce site is what will determine whether or not you make a profit. How you promote your ecommerce site will determine how much profit you will make the first month, the first year, and for the life of the business.

First things first: the reason you have an ecommerce site is to sell your products. Each page that lists a product needs to have words to offer the consumer as much information as possible about the product that you have to offer. Because your pictures don’t have the benefit of touch and three dimensional site, your pictures need to offer as many angles as possible, including close-ups and labels if applicable. In this way, your customer can feel confident that he or she is going to get exactly what they want.

Search engines, however, can’t see pictures. The only way that search engine spiders will pick up your site when a customer searches a key phrase that relates to your product is if you have text that relates to that product on the page. Include it in the title bar for the page, in the header and throughout the descriptive text. Use variations of the words within the product name as well as words that are related. In this way, the search engine will recognize your page as a legitimate landing site for the consumer.

Don’t get too carried away with the text, however. Keep the word count between 250 words and 750 words. Too little and there isn’t enough information to convince the search engines or the consumer that you are the expert you claim to be. Too much and the consumer gets bored or overwhelmed and clicks through without reading anything.

Once you have your ecommerce site set up, properly filled up with informative text and pictures, submit your URL to main directories like Dmoz and Yahoo. Directories are great places for consumers to get focused results for their key phrase searches. Finding your site here lends it credibility that search engines don’t offer.

In the same way, niche directories offer the same authority to your site and then some. Because your site must pass an acceptance process, to be included in their directory means something in the business world. Only sites that are qualified and related to the particular niche of the directory are included. If your ecommerce site is among them, you’re guaranteed a much higher percentage of traffic that will not only come to your site but are more likely to stay, purchase, and return often.

Your next step in promoting your ecommerce site is something like advertising. Get your name, your brand, and your URL everywhere that matters. That means posting your expert industry related advice on forums that consumers interested in your product area are likely to roam. For blogs in your sphere of influence, that goes double. Blogs, especially, are gaining popularity by the day and have the added feature of RSS feeds which allow its regulars to subscribe to an alert system which lets them know every time a new post (i.e. your new post) goes up.

Next, offer to post the link to a complementary business on your site in exchange for them posting yours. In this way, you both gain the coveted link back that search engines use as part of their formula for calculating your page rank. Your expertise can also get link backs with the even more highly coveted one way link back when you write articles and include your URL in your bio box at the bottom. Submit these articles to free article directories where they can get picked up by bloggers and newsletter editors in your industry. Finally, you can implement these ideas and watch your traffic numbers rise and your profits soar within weeks.

Every casino, regardless of it being a land based casino or an online casino will offer its players the large selection of the most popular casino games, but which one is right for you.

Gambling, casino, online, roulette, craps, poker, blackjack, entertainment, sports and leisure, slot machines, recreation

Choosing the right casino game to play is very important. A novice gambler should not be playing games of skill such as blackjack and poker, and needs to be informed of what the other games have to offer.

Slot Machines, in the days of the Wild West Slot Machines were known as one arm bandits because you could sit there all day putting in coins and pulling that handle without ever getting a win and the same is true today. Today’s slot machines have more ways to win, so you probably will not go all day winning nothing but other then some small five dollar or less wins you probably won’t do to well on the slot machines. If you insist this is the game for you try to remember that the more the machine is the better the odds of you getting a bigger win.

Roulette, this is a good game for the beginner with just a little bit of knowledge you can play roulette because it requires no real skill or experience. The only thing you need to know are the procedures to playing in a casino, and the different bets you can make. All of these things can be learned by just watching the table for a few spins of the wheel before placing any bets. By sticking to what is called betting the outside of the table you can give yourself odds as low and 1 in 5 of being able to double your money. Unless you have the money to risk it is not a good idea to bet the inside of the table, the odds are bad but if you do win it can be up to a 37 to 1 payoff.

Keno, this is a game that older people and people with little money enjoy. Keno is basically playing a lottery that has a drawing every 5 minutes. The object is to guess which numbers the computer is going to select. Depending on how many numbers you get right and how much you paid for the game winning can pay up to 1 million dollars.

Craps, even though Roulette may be easier to play for a novice player, it offers the best odds for the player in the casino. To most people who have never played craps before it can seem like a very difficult game, but after watching a few rounds of the game for a bit you will quickly pick up on how to bet, and most players say of all the most Popular Casino Games craps is much easier to win larger sums of money in the casino.

Poker an Blackjack are two games that should be avoided by beginner gamblers, the games rely on more skill then luck, and by not knowing the game you will also be messing up the other players who know what they are doing, and they are counting on the fact that if you sit down at the table with them that you know what to do.

If it is these games that interest you then before you go to the casino spend some time learning the game and playing as many hands either in an online casino practice room or you can download one of the many programs available on the internet.

Do you harbor the dream of dreams? Working at home and making a decent living, not answering to anyone but yourself and fixing your own hours and dress code? Do you dream of a home based business opportunity that actually works, doesn’t siphon off all your spare money but puts the bucks in your pocket?

Do you harbor the dream of dreams? Working at home and making a decent living, not answering to anyone but yourself and fixing your own hours and dress code? Do you dream of a home based business opportunity that actually works, doesn’t siphon off all your spare money but puts the bucks in your pocket?

Is there really such a thing?

The dream of making money on the Internet is not a simple fantasy. You can make it a reality if you’re willing to follow some basic precepts. Here are a few principles to follow when contemplating starting up a home based online business. They’re also useful checks for those who have been working online for a while and want to tweak an already established Internet business.

You’ve seen all the hype. It seems that every other page on the web advertises secrets to making a fortune online. Some of those programs are definitely well conceived and well structured, and will produce return for your time, effort, energy and money in the form of an ongoing Internet business. Others are scams. When you’re first starting out, how do you tell the difference?

Read first, and then research before you act. After you’ve read a couple dozen of these websites through, you’ll find yourself noticing patterns of hyperbole and noticeably pushy prose. Throw those out.

Choose a few programs you feel good about at that point. Then write individual e-mails to the people whose glowing testimonials are all over those sites. The ones who write back represent the ones that stand a chance.

Commit to something you love. This recommendation contains two parts: First, the commitment part. That means that your new online home based business requires you to take care of it like a baby. Don’t just buy a program and then expect it to bring in the dough. Commit in your mind first, and really be willing to spend time nurturing your online home business with your time, your heart, your mind and your soul. That’s what winners are made of.

The second part of the recommendation to “commit to something you love” has to do with loving what you do. It’s simple. If you love the product or service you represent, if you love how you spend your time, then you stand a great chance of making a success of your home based business. If you don’t love it, however, you’re going to burn out way before you see the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s what happens to 95% of all the small home based business entrepreneurs on the Internet?they burn out.

Basically, you’re looking to optimize your chances of online business success through your own diligence, commitment and love. These qualities are the ones that will put you over the top and make you feel great about your adventure in online marketing.

Optimize Returns From Your Online Free Trial Campaigns. Use PhoneConfirm.

PhoneConfirm helps to fight on-line fraud by providing reliable identity verification services.

The Current State of Online Free Trials in the e-Business Scene
Every year, hundreds of e-business websites worldwide employ online free trial campaigns to promote their goods and services. These campaigns usually run for a limited trial period, often up to 90 days. During this trial period, these companies offer free goods and services, aiming to convert responders into paying customers at the end of the trial. Some service companies even offer a limited period free trial as an ongoing company policy.

Upon offering a free trial, each company wants to draw only genuine customers who complete an online form to register. These forms are simple, requesting only key information, such as name, address, telephone number, email address, and some personal preferences about products or services. Beyond that, most companies do very little to verify the user. The campaign goes as planned, and the company meets its free trial commitments.

Along with the genuine customers out there, the marketplace is full of people who are “on the prowl?waiting for these opportunities to make fast gains. These include e-newsletter signups, ROI calculators, signups for marketing material, drawings, and free service trials. And the competition is not far behind, always finding ways to dilute the impact of the campaign.

The Real Issue
Many online users routinely abuse free trial campaigns by creating multiple accounts and registering one-time signups multiple times. Or, competitors sign up under false identity to prevent even the best-managed companies from deriving full benefits from their trial campaign investments. This online deception results in financial loss due to poor online verification of a user’s identity.

It is common knowledge that if this issue is left unresolved, – % of the intended reach is taken away by non-genuine customers and competitors, making campaigns less effective and even quite risky. This not only impacts the expected yield from each campaign, but also strains resources, adversely affecting the level of service to genuine customers. This e-business issue has been widely recognized, and website owners are looking for solutions to minimize the problem.

The PhoneConfirm Solution
PhoneConfirm.com provides an affordable solution that helps website owners derive full value from their trial campaign investments for all types of online e-businesses. Using PhoneConfirm’s proven Automated Phone Confirmation Service, predators and competitors are discouraged from signing up for free trials of a product or service, greatly improving the quality of the marketing leads.

PhoneConfirm’s solution is based on two important facts. First, any phone number is easily traceable. Next, while multiple email addresses can be quickly and freely obtained just in a few minutes (using various email services), it is much more complicated to obtain a new telephone number. For most people, it is not worth the trouble to confirm a phone number just for a free service usage. So, most potential fraudsters are immediately discouraged and drop the idea to commit the folly.

How PhoneConfirm.com Works
The trial campaign subpages of a company’s website links to their potential clients via the PhoneConfirm Service. From the information provided online by the customers, Phone Confirm verifies the user’s phone number, generates a unique PIN number, and records it, drastically reducing the shipment of marketing material, free goods, or free trial services to junk users.

PhoneConfirm automatically dials the phone number at the same time that the end user is registering for a transaction. PhoneConfirm immediately calls the number to confirm that the phone number represents the person that is interacting with the website through PIN entry. Any discrepancy results in automatic blockage, and the transaction is reported to the website for further disposition. The result is a reduction in fraud, decreased unauthorized system accesses, and a significant cost savings compared to a traditional, manual telephone confirmation process.

The Benefits of Using PhoneConfirm.com
PhoneConfirm’s fraud protection service adds an important layer to real-time identity confirmation, reducing fake users drastically. It enables secure account updates and protected changes (such as passwords), reduces labor and service costs for manual phone confirmation, and adds another confirmation record for the transaction.

PhoneConfirm.com is both easy to set up and use. They will even help customers set up service. PhoneConfirm’s verification service helps websites derive the full benefits from their campaign investments. During on-line campaigns, websites can even use the PhoneConfirm logo on their forms to further discourage unfair use of free offerings.

PhoneConfirm Support Services
PhoneConfirm.com is a globally recognized brand name well known for its non-stop, innovative, and cost effective online phone verification services. PhoneConfirm is professionally managed and is fully committed to providing superior pre- and post-sale support services to its worldwide customer base through qualified and experienced marketing, engineering, and technical support teams. PhoneConfirm’s policy is to provide its customers the highest possible quality through continued research and innovation in both products and support.

What Do Ebay Buyers Really Want?

If you were considering selling products on eBay, would it help you to know what ebay buyers were looking for, and no one else was supplying?

If you were considering selling products on eBay, would it help you to know what ebay buyers were looking for, and no one else was supplying? It seems like a rhetorical question with an obvious answer but few ebay sellers are taking advantage of an opportunity that is basically free for the taking.

On the eBay site there is a section called “Want-It-Now” and you’ve likely seen it but you should really look into it because there is a literal goldmine of information available to anyone who takes the time to analyse the data supplied.

Smart eBay sellers are using this readily available information to extract high demand and low competition product and niche selling ideas from the data.

The “Want It Now” section is a place where hungry eBay buyers post their requests to purchase a specific product or service. eBay sellers can respond to these posts by directing the prospective buyer to their own auctions.

If a lightbulb is going off in your head right now, then you are very astute and ahead of the curve in terms of competive market advantage.

It’s a simple idea and you are looking for a repetitive trend in what “Want It Now” buyers are looking for. If several posts are seeking the same product or service then you’ve identified a high demand niche with the potential for great selling opportunities.

The key though, is to identify those product niches that receive little or no responses from eBay sellers. Once you’ve targeted these, you have the sellers optimum situation and that is a high demand product with low competition.

So far it sounds quite straight forward but the in depth analysis required to really find the gems is a little more complicated. The way I had been doing this was to import the raw “Want It Now” data into a spreadsheet program like Excel, in order to sort the data and identify the most promising markets. I’m not really proficient with excel so this became a major hurdle.

Fortunately I stumbled across a software solution which simplified the process for me and in a few minutes was able to extract the “Want It Now” data uncovering high demand, low competition product or niche ideas in minutes.

Why Open an Online Casino Now?

Because of the ban on online gambling, this is the time to set up an online casino. Read why!

gambling

The USA has banned online gambling. Or has it? Reading the Post Authority Law, I have found that what they have banned is financial transactions between US financial organizations and online casinos. Why? They cannot ban online casinos because these are not under their jurisdiction. So, have online casinos complied? Some. The large ones have such as Party Gaming and 888, but an American player can still play.

So what does that tell us?
That gambling is at an all time high in the US and across the world. People like to play games for cash because they love the adrenalin rush they get when they bet money on the outcome of a game. A law, that refuses to acknowledge this is doomed to fail just like a law disallowing people from crossing the road when the signal light is red.

What About the Online Casinos?
Some, like Golden Casino, use a different name as their financial entity and ,thus, effectively bypass the US law. It pretty much works like this: the online casino does not allow US players but they leave it up to the players to stop playing. In other words, they do accept them, but are legally not liable for them.

So Why Should You Open an Online Casino NOW?
The US is bubbling with online players anxious to find somewhere or some casino that will accept their cash and allow them to play there. You can take advantage of this gap and this urge and place your casino in that location. Mind you, this is not unique and many online casinos are trying to think of ways to serve the US crowd, but it still is a budding industry because the big players like Playtech and BetonSports have left. Why not get in there and take up that gap?

Lets discuss this in financial terms. People are looking for this product and are scouring the city to find it. Why not open an online casino and offer them what they want? The initial costs are high, but the return on your investment will more than justify spending such large sums on purchasing the software. Note that running an online casino is not that difficult once you have bought the relevant software. Then, you have to spend on marketing this product. Use the relevant internet sites, and voile, players will start dropping in at an alarming rate.

Another reason to buy or open an online casino is that the law will take a while to take effect. This means that people can still play at casinos without any fear of prosecution. So why not take a plunge?

How Can I Open An Online Casino?
Contact one of the many software companies dealing with gaming such as MicroGaming, OddsOn and many others and ask. Some of these will even allow you to use their services such as customer and technical services while you just sit back and watch the money grow in your account. Is that something or not?

Conclusion:
Opening or buying an online casino now is still if not more profitable than before. But do not take my word for it alone. Look up google or yahoo and research this for yourself. You will be surprised at the number of new casinos coming up. Join this rush for cash too or be left behind.

What To Look For In A Private Label Membership Sites

By , September 5, 2018 10:59 pm

If you have come to the decision that private label rights content is for you, you are already on the right track to success. But before you get to excited, you need to make sure that you get set up with a private label membership site that is reputable. After all, you do not want to be using bad content that is going to hurt your search engine rankings. When you are searching for a private label membership site, there are several things that you will want to be aware of.

If you have come to the decision that private label rights content is for you, you are already on the right track to success. But before you get to excited, you need to make sure that you get set up with a private label membership site that is reputable. After all, you do not want to be using bad content that is going to hurt your search engine rankings. When you are searching for a private label membership site, there are several things that you will want to be aware of.

First off, you will want to make sure that the membership is limited. The reason that this is important is simple. Limited membership means that not everybody in the world will have the same content as you. This will go a long way in ensuring that your content appears original at all times. Some private label membership sites will sell their content to as many people that want to buy it. Even though this may be good for them because they are making money, it is bad for the people that are using the service. Before you sign up for any private label membership site, make sure that the membership is limited. Make sure that no more than 300 other people have access to the same content as you.

Another thing that you will want to consider is how often the content is refreshed. In other words, you want to make sure that you are getting new content every month. If not, is your membership even worth while? The main point of joining a private label membership site is to get new content and keep your site up to date and fresh. If you are not getting new content once a month you are not getting your money’s worth.

Making sure that the site you belong to writes their content geared towards a specific niche is also important. After all, if you have a real estate website why would you want content that has to do with health and fitness? Avoid the sites that focus only on what’s hot and not a consistent specific niche. By doing this you will increase your chances of success ten fold.

Also, do not forget to take price into consideration. Many private label membership sites are over priced and will charge you entirely too much for their services. The best thing to do is shop around until you find a site that offers what you want for a price that you feel is fair. There is no reason to spend a hundred dollars or more per month when you can get the same quality content for only $20 or $25.

And of course, make sure that the content you are getting is professionally written and of the highest quality. If you are going to be posting this content to your website you want to make sure that it is usable; not fluff.

Finding a quality private label membership site is possible. By following the steps outlined above you should not have any problems getting the content that you need for a price you can afford.

Why your site is not making money

Many people often asked, “Why am I not getting sales, nobody is signing up, I am not making any money, what is going wrong??

Many people often asked, “Why am I not getting sales, nobody is signing up, I am not making any money, what is going wrong??
Something is actually wrong. You see, when you’ve developed a product, registered a domain name, hosted your site, and solved issues like payment processor, you have to wait for the money to start rolling in-only then you will know the value of traffic.

No matter how beautiful your site or how crazy your product, without traffic your online business will fail. Generating traffic is the most difficult part of running an online business. But why is getting traffic so difficult? There are two main reasons.

The first reason is that online is not like the real world where you can rely on mere shop display. If you don’t make any calculated sales drive, people cannot find your site. The second reason is that the Internet has changed.

Internet advertising keeps advancing with many kinds of filters to make sure the right audience sees the right message. That is, to make sue you don’t disturb people who don’t want your ads. Traffic providers like Google can easily tell “junk?content from “real?content even if the surfers cannot. Nobody wants to give you the chance to succeed online.

There are about 6 billion people on the planet with about a billion using the Internet but sadly most sites have little traffic and make $20 to $50 a month. So how does one really get traffic?

You will not get traffic while sitting on your pajamas, feet up on your desk, sipping your coffee. You need to work very hard. To get massive traffic, people should be able to find your site virtually everywhere hence you need a broad, multi-faceted marketing campaign. Don’t rely solely on search engine ranking otherwise you are leaving 90% traffic.

Research as many traffic techniques as you can and experiment with as many as possible. Though it will cost you time and money, it is all an investment. Nothing comes easy, especially financial success.
