In this show aired on Dec. 16th, I discuss how to succeed on the Internet.  The basic foundation for any success is in the mindset and the habits that one creates as they are starting out a business.  If this basic foundation isn’t in place, then it doesn’t matter how many tricks, techniques or strategies you use, your Internet presence will not be as successful or as profitable, if at all, as it could be.

I cover the answers to these questions in this show.  Listen in for some valuable insight.

The Stores Online Workshops

Well, now that the stores online workshops (sales pitches) have come and gone through Denver, what are they about?  I am actually writing this because I received an invitation along with the many thousands of others in the Denver Metro area.  It has been many years since I attended one of these seminars.  The information they cover will be more up to date, but the format and purpose will remain the same…  sell you a bunch of web sites.

These types of seminars are very good at making the online success seem very easy.  When you get home and then a few weeks later, after you’ve had a chance to be with your web sites, you will see that what you received at the seminar was really the WHAT to do and not the HOW to do it.

Well, using the concept of the upsell, after you realize that you may be in over your head, you will get a call from the company offering consulting packages which will teach you the HOW to do it.  These consulting packages sometimes range in the thousands of dollars.  This is a cost that most people don’t really take into account because of course, they don’t talk about it at the seminar.  It has been several years, so I don’t know if they offer more affordable packages today or not.  However, at the time they offer you a consulting package, you are a motivated buyer.  You’ve just put a chunk of money into a bunch of web sites, and now you will need to do something with them.  If you don’t know how to yourself, you will be very tempted to take the consulting packages.

Dynamic and Static Websites – Internet Radio Show

This radio show was about the difference between dynamic web sites and static web sites.

Listen in to how dynamic web sites can really make your web presence work better for you.


Did You Design Your Web Site with An Exit Strategy?

Most businesses use their web site to do many of the basic functions that off-line tools and marketing systems do; sales, branding, market research, customer service, etc.  Most businesses typically use their web site for 1 or 2 of the functions listed above and rarely more that 3 at the same time.  It all depends upon what the business owner wants to get out of their web site, however, how many of them design their web site with an exit strategy?

What is an exit strategy?  In this case it is the way in which you are going to end the ownership of your website.  Will you just close your web site down or will you get your investment back and sell it?  Most businesses owners just close their web site down when they are done with it and fail to realize that they could be flushing a valuable asset down the drain.  It would be similar to walking away from your store and leaving the inventory, customer list and all of your trade secrets behind for who ever is clever enough to come by and salvage what is possible.

If you have your web site for several years, over that time you have developed a following, traffic, content, gained a lot of knowledge about your niche based upon customer buying patters, or visitor traffic patterns, and so much more.  You don’t realize that it is an asset.  If you can determine how much your web site makes per month, you can know how much you can sell it for.  If you have a sizeable email list, you have an asset that a smart email marketer can make use of to generate even more income on […]

Internet Business Strategies Show – Internet Law

This week we talked about Internet law and the things you need to know about with your web business.

Our guest was Douglas R. Griess  of Dymond Reagor Colville and he specializes in Internet law.

This was a very informative show because one of the most important things that came out of it is whenever you put your “shingle” on the internet, you are making yourself liable in the same way that a normal brick and morter business makes themselves liable.  Because it is so easy and so inexpensive to put your shingle out there on the Internet, anyone who wants to sell their book, or their knitting patterns is now out there on the Intenet and they really don’t have an idea of what they are making themselves liable for.

Some of the questions that were discussed were the following:

1.      What is internet law?

2.      On what areas of law should an internet based business be focused?

3.      How is an internet business different under the law from other businesses?

4.      What are the unique risks facing an internet company?

5.      How does one go about setting up a legal entity for internet business?

6.      How does one go about identifying and protecting their intellectual property assets on the internet?

7.       what are the basic steps an internet business should take to protect their intellectual property assets?

8.       Should internet businesses that link and/or refer to each other formalize such a relationship with a contract?

9.       What you should do if someone is defaming you via email or on their blog.
