Marketing Online-How To Best Use This Website
Marketing online is not rocket science, but you do need to learn some basic skills. This website
is designed to help you as a new person to the concept of marketing online focus in and learn the basic skills
needed for marketing in any area online.
More specifically, this website endeavors to aid those who are starting out with a minimal
budget. If you want to market online, but you have a minimal budget, you will need to compensate your lack of
funding with a lot of committment and effort, doing much of the work yourself in the beginning, and staying with it
long enough to see results.. If you have more liberal funding, these techniques will work even better, money

I began marketing online as part of the first group. Money was tight, and I did not
have the option of borrowing. I used whatever small funds I could free up without dipping into the grocery money
and the rest of my investment was in the form of sweat equity, and finding ways to use my time to produce the most
efficient results. And hanging in there even when progress seemed to be happening slowly.
"If you are serious, committed and willing to put forth the needed effort and time to begin building
an online business now, just do the following"....
To get started, go to the section on Starting a Business

If you give the section on Internet Marketing and Starting a business a one time read through,

getting links, and in time get traffic and begin the earning process.

some problems that need fixing. Here's the secret: Nobody is going to know but
you! I know, you may have seen all that blather on the internet about getting indexed in 24 hours. If that
happens, good, but don't hold your breath. And even if that does happen, all it means is the search engine does
know your website is live, and they have put it somewhere in the bottom of the stack.
Your friends and neighbors are not going to see your site unless you call and email them and
give them your url. So you have time to fix whatever is wrong or whatever imperfection you think it has.
Just get it online. That's the first important step.
Fix anything that needs fixing, and put your shoulder to the wheel, and start the process of
