Abstract:
People want high quality information from people who take themselves seriously and even more so, those who really want to help others too. The best online business opportunity is all about this!

When first starting out in an online business opportunity, the mindset seems to be to spread yourself thin over many different sites as quick as possible and hope for the best Ė Iím guilty of this myself.  But this strategy is not really the optimal way that you should be doing any type online marketing and promotion.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

What You should be doing is spreading yourself thick instead of thin.  The more you add value to your sites then you are building yourself up as an expert with high value.  You then become a great knowledge source for your potential customers to be able to tap into.

People want high quality information from people who take themselves seriously and even more so, those who really want to help others too. The best online business opportunity is all about this! Whatever you are interested in, gain knowledge and show this first by all means. Then show what others may be searching for and want to know about or how to do what you are doing.  Really explain it in detail, either in a product you sell on a sales page or in a business you are involved with.

Add Backlinks to your websites.  This is the best way to go, but be organized with it. Doing it in a random way gives the impression it is an act of spam madness. You will find that people want to find your information for themselves. They want to discover it through the search engines, a group, a niche related site or through a forum.

There will always be those sites that all they have is just banners and links and pretty much nothing else. These sites don't do well at all; they just jam up the online Internet world.  Donít get caught in the trap of getting your site to look like these.  Quite often these sites don't get indexed or updated and after a while they just die a quick death.

It is common to think once you have a website up and running, the work stops. This could not be further from the truth.  The saying, ďBuild it and they will come..Ē does not apply in the online world of marketing and business.  You must go out and get the traffic.  But, is that all you have to do? No, half of the battle is to keep it updated and to keep driving more traffic to it at the same time. That is online marketing at its best.

The marketing process of promoting your website and business to people makes for a great online business. Remember, as long as your website is online, marketing never stops. Be creative with your marketing to get more traffic.  But donít forget the ways that consistently work.

I was recently asked what my top ways of marketing are, they are tried and true and will work for anyone. They are;

  1. Blogging,
  2. Article Marketing,
  3. Social networking/bookmarking
  4. Video Marketing.

There is no wrong way to drive traffic to your site as long as you are honest.  You are going to attract people just like you.  A word of caution to those who are fairly new online; Donít spend all your hard earned money on advertising, it really isnít necessary.  And do your research, if someone is claiming they or their software can get you what you are looking for; find out if it got them there.  If it didnít, you have your answer.

To your success,
