Never Give Up

If you're just beginning to market your business online, you're probably overwhelmed. If you've been doing it a while, you might still be overwhelmed, or discouraged. But if you've begun to see results and to increase sales, then you probably know that what got you through the lean days and over the hump into success was the fact that you never stopped. No matter how many fans you have on Facebook, followers on twitter, or views on YouTube, don't stop. Don't stop posting, commenting, tagging, tweeting, and blogging. Most people who fail, do so because they give up. Never give up.

David -

There is a lot you can do. Every business should have a website. Building a website doesn't have to be expensive, time consuming or difficult. Building a website yourself can actually be pretty easy using Wordpress. We're talking about starting without much of a budget here right? So that video will show you how to get your site up and running for under $100.

Before you build a site, do some keyword research and get a domain name that will be strong in the search engines. This is a CRITICAL step. Don't skip it. That video will give you more details and if you have more questions after that, just give me a call and I'll be happy to give you some more advice about this part.

Once the site is built, register it with Google, Yahoo and Bing. If you have a physical location, register with Google Places and the Yahoo and Bing equivalent.

Next step is going to be Facebook. This one is free. Build a Facebook Fan Page. If you don't know much about fan pages, check out 30 Day Fan Page Profits. Opt in with your name and e-mail address and get free videos that will show you how to build a fan page, everything that's on your new fan page and give you a couple of management tips. You can also purchase a membership to the site for the COMPLETE guide to Facebook Fan Pages in video form.

Next think about YouTube. If you can make some videos about your product, those will play really well on your site and on Facebook and everyone loves video.

Linkedin is a good place to think about being as well.

That should get you started. Let me know if there are any other questions I can answer for you.

Good Luck!!

Thanks Amy. There is great money to be made selling other people's products, but choosing the right product is key, and owning your web space is also important.
